From the Mojave Desert to the Bay of Fundy

In our power-hungry world, all the talk about energy—what’s safe and what’s risky, what’s clean and what’s dirty, what’s cheap and what’s easy—tends to generate more heat than light. What, Julianne Couch wanted to know, is the real story on power production in this country? Approaching the question as a curious consumer, Couch takes us along as she visits nine sites where electrical power is developed from different fuel sources. From a geothermal plant in the Mojave Desert to a nuclear plant in Nebraska, from a Wyoming coal-fired power plant to a Maine tidal-power project, Couch gives us an insider’s look at how power is generated, how it affects neighboring landscapes and the people who live and work there, and how each source comes with its own unique complications. The result is an informed, evenhanded discussion of energy production and consumption on the global, national, regional, local, and—most important—personal level. Knowledge is the real power this book imparts, allowing each of us to think beyond the flip of a switch to the real consequences of our energy use.

"Unearthing the Reference Tables is an excellent and thorough guide to the reference tables with clearly explained step-by-step examples for each table. A great tool for the Earth Science Regents!" - Mrs. Tzippy Reich, highly-acclaimed author of Earth Science Simplified and Earth Science teacher in Masores High School, Brooklyn, NY "The students found your book very helpful for the regents. The diagrams and information were very clear and precise." - Rabbi Yehuda Possick, principal of Beth Shraga; Monsey, NY "Unearthing the Reference Tables is an invaluable aid in deciphering the Earth Science Reference Tables - a key part in doing well on the New York State Earth Science Regents." - Mrs. Faigy Lipson, Earth Science teacher in Beth Jacob of Monsey; Monsey, NY "This book is... clear, concise and very easy to understand. The students loved it." - Mrs. Leah Weichbrod, Earth Science teacher in Beth Jacob School for Girls; Brooklyn, NY "It made it much easier for me to study for the regents and cut my study time tremendously because it was so clear and easy to understand." - Leah Miriam Einhorn, student in Beth Jacob High School, Brooklyn, NY "A real lifesaver for me! Your book made it possible for me to pass the Earth Science Regents." - B. K., student in Beth Jacob High School; Brooklyn, NY Did you know that about 35-50% of every Earth Science Regents is composed of questions entirely based on the Earth Science Reference Tables? And did you know that a raw score of approximately 50% on the Earth Science Regents converts to a scale score of 65%? (with at least 9/16 lab credits) If you know how to read every table on the Earth Science Reference Tables, that's terrific. But what if you don't? Gaining a clear understanding of the reference tables is crucial for the Earth Science Regents. The good news is that one of the best-kept secrets of the Earth Science regents is that the reference tables-based questions are the easiest part of the regents by far - if you know how to use the reference tables. That's where this book comes in. Unearthing the Reference Tables: A Clear & Simple Reference Tables Guide is a book that: Gives step-by-step instructions in clear and simple terms on how to easily decipher each one of the 28 charts on the Earth Science Reference Tables Highlights important information often asked on the Earth Science Regents Provides actual regents questions at the end of each section, along with answers and brief explanations

Eclipses have long been seen as important celestial phenomena, whether as omens affecting the future of kingdoms, or as useful astronomical events to help in deriving essential parameters for theories of the motion of the moon and sun. This is the first book to collect together all presently known records of timed eclipse observations and predictions from antiquity to the time of the invention of the telescope. In addition to cataloguing and assessing the accuracy of the various records, which come from regions as diverse as Ancient Mesopotamia, China, and Europe, the sources in which they are found are described in detail. Related questions such as what type of clocks were used to time the observations, how the eclipse predictions were made, and how these prediction schemes were derived from the available observations are also considered. The results of this investigation have important consequences for how we understand the relationship between observation and theory in early science and the role of astronomy in early cultures, and will be of interest to historians of science, astronomers, and ancient and medieval historians.
