New Tendencies in Mexican Art: The 1990s (New Directions in Latino American Culture)

The last decade of the Nineties used to be essentially the most turbulent sessions in fresh Mexican historical past marked through political assassinations, the Zapatista rebellion in Chiapas, the signing of NAFTA, a catastrophic financial trouble, and the defeat of the PRI after seventy years of one-party rule. How did paintings reply to those occasions?

The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science

Within the planned Corruption of weather technology, Dr. Tim Ball exposes the malicious misuse of weather technology through cheating agents to improve the time table of the innovative left. How used to be valid technological know-how twisted right into a morass of convoluted gibberish? Dr. Ball explores how and why the technological know-how was once distorted for political reasons.

Pergamon Press, Oxford, pp. 3-19. 1 AEROSOL GENERATION IN WORKPLACES Many industrial processes generate aerosols in one form or another, usually as a side effect of the process itself and by a wide variety of physical and chemical means. The list of possibilities outlined below is far from exhaustive, but serves to indicate the range of types of aerosol that need to be recognised and dealt with in the field.

Such forces occur close to flow boundaries where the fluid is undergoing 'shear', and are the forces responsible for what we refer to as 'friction' associated with energy loss. Such energy loss occurs in the form of heat. 25) IVf[ and this dimensionless quantity is known as the Reynolds' number (Re, after Sir Osborne Reynolds, a pioneering British fluid dynamicist of the late 1800s). For the microscopic flow of air about a small airborne particle, for example, D would be the particle diameter and U the relative velocity between the particle and the surrounding air.
