Описание: James Owen Weatherall s book, "The Physics of Wall Street, " was a "New York Times" best-seller and named one of "Physics Today" s five most intriguing books of 2013. In his newest volume, he takes on a fundamental concept of modern physics: nothing. The physics of "stuff "protons, neutrons, electrons, and even quarks and gluons is at least somewhat familiar to most of us. But what about the physics of "nothing"? Isaac Newton thought of empty space as nothingness extended in all directions, a kind of theater in which physics could unfold. But both quantum theory and relativity tell us that Newton s picture can t be right. Nothing, it turns out, is an awful lot like "something," with a structure and properties every bit as complex and mysterious as matter. In his signature lively prose, Weatherall explores the very nature of empty space and solidifies his reputation as a science writer to watch."

Описание: Is it possible that unusual creatures share the Pacific Northwest with its 10.3 million human occupants? Its true! Oregon and Washington have "misplaced" alien invaders, such as a half-inch flea, a giant spider with a leg span of three inches, and a snakehead fish (made famous of late in four horror movies) that can breathe in water and on land, and grows to be about four feet long. There are sea monsters, from prehistoric times to the present, as well as freshwater phantoms said to infest lakes and rivers. The sky has winged wonders that resemble species long believed to be extinct. These are the stuff of nightmares: thunderbirds described as raptors, resembling eagles or vultures, with a wingspan of eight feet, as well as Bigfoot and other large bipeds. A comprehensive guide to a crypto zoo of the Northwest, this book details the Black Tamanous, a man-eating monster; a kangaroo man; the usual brownies, elves, fairies, gnomes, leprechauns, pixies, wee folk; and many more. You may find this research unsettling, even frightening. One thing is certain...a world of mystery awaits.

to solve important social problems, to contemporary distrust of government and rejection of liberal ideals. H.W. Brands delineates the intimate connection between the rise of postwar
