Free sample

This book was developed mainly from the selected presentations and contribu tions made during the 3rd Biennual European Conference on Fish Processing in Grimsby, UK, 29th June-1st July 1999, which was sponsored by the Society of Chemical Industry, University of Lincoln, and North East Lincolnshire Council. The book is divided into three sections preceded by an introductory chapter providing an overview of seafood quality, technology and nutraceutical applica tions. The first section (Chaps 2-10) describes a range of aspects of seafood quality from the impact of slaughter procedures, practical evaluation, texture, measuring fish content, protein functionality, histamine toxicity and flavour; the second section (Chaps 11-13) covers value-added waste products, automation in fish processing and water treatment; the final section (Chaps 14-16) dis cusses food and health applications of marine nutraceuticals/functional foods. Contributing to this volume are researchers from different countries who are well recognised in their respective areas of expertise, providing a diverse and global perspective of the issue of seafood quality, technology and nutraceutical applications.

Visionary and satiric. Two astronomers discover an asteroid: Death is possible -- will it hit? Strong doses of romance, science, religion and sex . . . with some ballet thrown in for good measure.

A courageous and visionary work an instant classic
--BlueInk Reviews

From IndieReader Reviews:

Two astronomers discover an asteroid on a potential collision course with Earth.

Harris Mitchel and Diana Muse are old friends and scientific rivals, but when they jointly discover a new asteroid, which they name Baby, their lives are upended for good. Harriss wife Jennifer is growing increasingly frustrated with his dedication to work over marriage. A fundamentalist minister with money troubles hopes to boost his ministry by taking public exception to Mitchels advocacy of science as a new frontier and a new inspiration -- and a conservative radio personality is stoking the fight for his audiences amusement. A New Age community views Mitchel as a new prophet. But the stakes are higher than any of them realize, since Baby appears to be on a collision course with Earth. Can Harris and Diana manage to save the world as well as their own personal lives?

The Darkest Side of Saturn manages to play with the religion-science divide in a truly thought- provoking and entertaining fashion. Mitchels inspired and dramatic view of science and discovery as the meaning and purpose of human existence is shown not only from his perspective, but refracted through the viewpoints of others, whether Dianas intelligent pragmatism, the cynical whats-in-it-for-me attitude of politicians and administrators, the angry fundamentalist reaction of the Rev. Farnsworth, or the mystical, but somewhat scatterbrained, devotion of his New Age true believers. The writing is both poetically lyrical and driven, full of energy and force, especially when the topic is either science or sex. Rapier-sharp verbal fencing and a snarky, witty sense of humor brighten the book. The romance is feisty, vigorous, and sensual, with electricity vividly present from the beginning of the novel. The ending offers a fascinating perspective on the whole, combining both scientific awe and mystical philosophy in a new and intriguing way.

The Darkest Side of Saturn is a mischievous, playful, and intelligent look at human consciousness, science, religion, inspiration and truth.

New York Times bestselling author Douglas Adams and zoologist Mark Carwardine take off around the world in search of exotic, endangered creatures.

Join them as they encounter the animal kingdom in its stunning beauty, astonishing variety, and imminent peril: the giant Komodo dragon of Indonesia, the helpless but loveable Kakapo of New Zealand, the blind river dolphins of China, the white rhinos of Zaire, the rare birds of Mauritius island in the Indian Ocean. Hilarious and poignant—as only Douglas Adams can be—Last Chance to See is an entertaining and arresting odyssey through the Earth’s magnificent wildlife galaxy.
Praise for Last Chance to See
“Lively, sharply satirical, brilliantly written . . . shows how human care can undo what human carelessness has wrought.”—The Atlantic

“These authors don’t hesitate to present the alarming facts: More than 1,000 species of animals (and plants) become extinct every year. . . . Perhaps Adams and Carwardine, with their witty science, will help prevent such misadventures in the future.”—Boston Sunday Herald
“Very funny and moving . . . The glimpses of rare fauna seem to have enlarged [Adams’s] thinking, enlivened his world; and so might the animals do for us all, if we were to help them live.”—The Washington Post Book World
“[Adams] invites us to enter into a conspiracy of laughter and caring.”—Los Angeles Times
“Amusing . . . thought-provoking . . . Its details on the heroic efforts being made to save these animals are inspirational.”—The New York Times Book Review
Denial is the first book to draw together the ideological and psychological elements involved in historical denial. Tony Taylor surveys major cases in twentieth and twenty-first-century historical denial that illustrate the nature of prejudice and how it relates to techniques of the instigators of denial, including their use of popular media and the Internet.

Among the issues canvassed are denial and the Armenian atrocities as a governmental phenomenon; Holocaust denial in Australia and overseas as a racist phenomenon; Stalinist denial by Marxist historians post 1945 as an ideological phenomenon; Japanese ultranationalist denial from the 1960s to date as a cultural phenomenon; Serbian denial of 1990s Balkan atrocities as an ethnic phenomenon, and others.

At a time when most debates seem to accept the arguments of the deniers at face value the book will focus on the pathology of denial as an abuse of history through wilful distortion of events and eager self-deception. Denial is also now a major online industry: hate/denial/conspiracy sites have proliferated in the past ten years, a development complicated by new technological developments such as blogging, the strategic diversion of readers from apparently legitimate sites to racist sites, and the jamming of mainstream sites with denial messages.Many of those involved in debates about denial take the view that it is a legitimate alternative set of opinions about the past, rather than a politically and/or racially motivated distortion of events. Or, they believe that, notwithstanding the loopy parts, deniers have something valuable to say. Denial challenges that view.

Handbook of Functional Beverages and Human Health provides potential applications and new developments in functional beverages, nutraceuticals, and health foods. In addition to serving as a reference manual, it summarizes the current state of knowledge in key research areas and contains novel ideas for future research and development. Additionally, it provides an easy-to-read text suitable for teaching senior undergraduate and postgraduate students in the relevant areas.

The book is divided into seven major sections: Section I covers market trends, global regulations, flavor challenges, chemistry, and health with specific reference to cancer chemoprevention and the prevention of postprandial metabolic stress due to consumption of functional beverages. Section II, by far the largest part of the book, has 39 chapters on the most popular fruit juices (apple juice, lemon juice, pomegranate juice, watermelon juice, etc.). Section III reports on herbal and vegetable juices (carrot juice, Chinese medicinal herbs and root-based beverages, tomato juice, and vegetable-containing juices).

Section IV details caffeinated beverages, including different varieties of tea (green, black, oolong, and herbal teas), coffee (coffee and beverages from green coffee beans), and cocoa and chocolate. Section V is on dairy and soy beverages, while Section VI is on alcoholic beverages (wine) and water (maple water). Finally, Section VII describes fermented (kefir, koumiss, and ayran) and fortified functional beverages (applications of plant sterols and stanols in functional beverages, beverages fortified with omega-3 fatty acids, dietary fiber, minerals and vitamins, probiotics and prebiotics in functional beverages, functional beverages in weight management, fortified sport drinks, and peptide-enriched functional beverages).

The global market for seafood products continues to increase yearby year. Food safety considerations are as crucial as ever in thissector, and higher standards of quality are demanded even asproducts are shipped greater distances around the world. Thecurrent global focus on the connection between diet and healthdrives growth in the industry and offers commercial opportunitieson a number of fronts. There is great interest in the beneficialeffects of marine functional compounds such as omega-3polyunsaturated fatty acids. Seafoods are well-known as low caloriefoods, and research continues into the nutritional effects on, forexample, obesity and heart disease. In addition, by-products ofmarine food processing can be used in nutraceutical applications.

This book is a resource for those interested in the latestadvances in the science and technology of seafood quality andsafety as well as new developments in the nutritional effects andapplications of marine foods. It includes chapters on the practicalevaluation of seafood quality; novel approaches in preservationtechniques; flavour chemistry and analysis; textural quality andmeasurement; packaging; the control of food-borne pathogens andseafood toxins. New research on the health-related aspects ofmarine food intake are covered, as well as the use of seafoods assources of bioactives and nutraceuticals. The book is directed atscientists and technologists in academia, government laboratoriesand the seafood industries, including quality managers, processorsand sensory scientists.
