Edited By Bell, Steve
In the quest for ever more demanding goals, conquering the highest summit on each of the seven continents has for many become the ultimate feat. This book provides a fascinating insight into the mountains themselves, the nature of the challenge and the extraordinary people who have climbed all seven. Mountain essays reveal the character of each summit and describe routes and historic ascents. The majority of the book comprises a unique collection of personal diaries and accounts, written by seven summiteers themselves, that detail the exhilarating and harrowing experiences of climbers ensnared by the dream and stretched to the limits. Seven Summits captures the drama, the grit and the beauty of a global challenge that has inspired mountaineers and armchair enthusiasts alike. - The only complete and fully illustrated record of this great mountaineering challenge - Stunning, evocative colour photography and fascinating real-life stories convey the endeavour, the pain and the glory of this renowned climbing feat - Contains a unique collection of diaries written by both foremost mountaineers and daring amateurs from around the world. Slight crease to top edge of D/J. 144pp.

Ritrovato,P. Et al.(Eds.)
Volume 127 in the Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence and Applications Series.There is a paradigm shift in Informatics in general and in technologies enhancing human learning in particular. The debate between the "evolutionaries" - those that wish to optimize and refine current approaches - and the "revolutionaries" - those that support a fundamental change of approach - is quite actual. Within the Internet communities, the debate is hidden behind the words "semantic WEB" versus "semantic Grid"; within educational technologists between "content/resource centered" and "conversation centered" e-learning, or either between "teaching" and "pedagogy" on the one side, and "learning" and "communities of practice" on the other. In general, in Informatics, the shift from a product-page oriented to a service-conversation oriented view may possibly impact most if not all the foreseen applications, in e-learning, but also in e-science, e-democracy, e-commerce, e-health, etc. Part A of the book is dedicated to Position papers: visions about what to do and why to do it in the next years. The remaining parts (B to D) offer partial answers to "how" to do it. Part B concerns what we called: Content-centered services.239pp.

Shaw, Robert; Lindsey, Jason
Top corner of front and rear board and D/J bumped. When most people think of the Chicago metropolitan area they usually don't envision captivating natural beauty, but within a 55-mile radius of the city there are no less than five distinctive ecosystems, including tall-grass prairies, oak savannas, forests, lakeshores, and wetlands. Several of the natural communities preserved here are among the rarest in the world, including 181 species listed as endangered or threatened. These spectacular colour photographs uncover Chicago's natural wonders, including vistas of shooting stars at Chiwaukee Prairie, blazing star and goldenrod at Gensburg-Markham Prairie, a luscious green canyon at Camp Sagawau, a pair of sandhill cranes feeding along the banks of the Fox River, a carpet of trilliums in Messenger Woods, fog rising over the Volo bog, and a fox family venturing out at dawn. 127pp.
