1881—Special Agent Gillian Hamilton is a magic caster with the Federal Bureau of Magic and Steam. He’s sent to Shallow Grave, Arizona, to arrest a madman engineer known as Tinkerer, who’s responsible for blowing up half of Baltimore. Gillian has handled some of the worst criminals in the Bureau’s history, so this assignment shouldn’t be a problem. But even he’s taken aback by a run-in with the country’s most infamous outlaw, Gunner the Deadly. Gunner is also stalking Shallow Grave in search of Tinkerer, who will stop at nothing to take control of the town’s silver mines. Neither Gillian nor Gunner are willing to let Tinkerer hurt more innocent people, so they agree to a very temporary partnership. If facing illegal magic, Gatling gun contraptions, and a wild engineer in America’s frontier wasn’t enough trouble for a city boy, Gillian must also come to terms with the reality that he’s rather fond of his partner. But even if they live through this adventure, Gillian fears there’s no chance for love between a special agent and outlaw. Based on the short story, "Gunner the Deadly." Entirely revised, newly expanded, and Book One in the exciting new steampunk series, Magic & Steam.
The second in this two-volume series also contains original papers commissioned from many of the most prominent and accomplished mathematicians of the 20th century. A three-part treatment covers mathematical methods, statistical and scheduling studies, and physical phenomena. Contributors include William Feller, Stanislaw M. Ulam, and George Pólya. 1961 edition.
Combining detailed research with extensive illustration, this monumental work of pioneering importance portrays the relationship that developed between design and engineering, from the Renaissance to the Industrial Revolution to the present day.
It is progress that guarantees existence.Without engineering mankind would be an already extinguished species.The American writer James Albert Michener wrote: “ Scientists dream about doing great things. Engineers do them”.It is progress that guarantees existence. Without engineering mankind would be an already extinguished species.The American writer James Albert Michener wrote: “ Scientists dream about doing great things. Engineers do them”.Between mathematics, physics, chemistry, technique and technology, from Archimedes of Syracuse to Samantha Cristoforetti, from Leonardo da Vinci to Larry Page, an extraordinary story of innovations and achievements. Nothing of what’s built nowadays by men, in any part of the world and space, would have been possible if there were no engineers.Therefore this praise is meant as a homage to the most beautiful job in the world and to the professionals that every day practice it, amongst countless difficulties but with awareness and pride.
Offers an eye-opening and revealing look into an interpersonal/scientific conflict involving the ‘Father of Modern Soil Mechanics’ Karl von Terzaghi. Exemplifies the ‘human side’ of science in which, sometimes, the prominence of a theorist and the inertia of the ‘accepted wisdom’ can inhibit progress and rational discussion of the facts. More than 100 illustrations combine with historical details in the text to evoke a vivid picture of the lost era of pre-WWII Vienna.
To enhance the nation's economic productivity and improve the quality of life worldwide, engineering education in the United States must anticipate and adapt to the dramatic changes of engineering practice. The Engineer of 2020 urges the engineering profession to recognize what engineers can build for the future through a wide range of leadership roles in industry, government, and academia--not just through technical jobs. Engineering schools should attract the best and brightest students and be open to new teaching and training approaches. With the appropriate education and training, the engineer of the future will be called upon to become a leader not only in business but also in nonprofit and government sectors. The book finds that the next several decades will offer more opportunities for engineers, with exciting possibilities expected from nanotechnology, information technology, and bioengineering. Other engineering applications, such as transgenic food, technologies that affect personal privacy, and nuclear technologies, raise complex social and ethical challenges. Future engineers must be prepared to help the public consider and resolve these dilemmas along with challenges that will arise from new global competition, requiring thoughtful and concerted action if engineering in the United States is to retain its vibrancy and strength.

This book is the history of the development of technology at Sony Corporation written by the legendary engineer Nobutoshi Kihara, who supported Mr. Masaru Ibuka, one of Sony founders. Working as his right arm, Kihara developed a number of products that established Sony as a global leader in technology. Not only was he key to development, Kihara's engineering philosophy and approach to engineering influenced many engineers at Sony. The year after the end of World War II, Tokyo Communications Industry (Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo, Sony's predecessor) was established as a tiny wooden shed in the area ruined by the war. The following year, Kihara became a member of the company as the first year recruit employee. Thanks to Kihara, Sony completed the first tape-recorder in Japan, and later developed the transistor type VTR, the full-scale home-use VTR and many other "World Firsts" and "Japanese Firsts" products that laid the foundation for the Japanese sound and video recording culture and helped in the postwar reconstruction of Japan.Kihara was always a free thinker not bound by the concepts of the establishment. Even now, his ideas and concepts for development would be of use to many managers and engineers in technology development.
A former broadcaster and journalist, Bourgeois-Doyle (corporate governance, National Research Council of Canada) has contributed to numerous books, articles, TV features, and radio programs on science history. Here he offers general readers a biography of Elsie MacGill (1905-1980), the world's first female aeronautical engineer and professional aircraft designer. The daughter of suffragist judge Helen MacGill (1864-1947), she also served on Canada's Royal Commission on the Status of Women from its founding in 1967, to the issuance of its report in 1970, calling for a complete rethinking of attitudes and policies towards women in Canada, and subsequently traveled the country lobbying for implementation of the recommended changes.
Today we are developing a science that could change the world - for good or ill - more quickly and more profoundly than ever before. The science of genetics promises - or threatens - nothing less than the creation of life. Colin Tudge leads the reader gently through the deepest intricacies of genetics. He traces its history. He explores its awesome power and its current applications. And he speculates on its thrilling - or terrifying - future. He has written an essential book for anyone interested in the future of the human race.
