The Dead Center Reflections on Liberalism and Democracy After the End of History


The Dead Center: Reflections on Liberalism and Democracy After the End of History by Luke Savage
English | September 27th, 2022 | ISBN: 1682193330 | 272 pages | True EPUB | 1.24 MB
The Dead Center takes an acerbic and often ribald eye to contemporary politics, particularly those of mainstream liberals in the United States. Combining engaging polemic and serious intellectual analysis, it offers a timely portrait of a political landscape sullied by an already ineffectual Biden administration, the marginalization of forces around Bernie Sanders and the ominous shadow of Donald Trump in the wings.

Review of the U.S. Navy Environmental Health Center’s Health-Hazard Assessment Process


National Research Council, Commission on Life Sciences, Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology, "Review of the U.S. Navy Environmental Health Center’s Health-Hazard Assessment Process"
English | 2000 | pages: 94 | ISBN: 030907147X | EPUB | 0,4 mb
<p>A large number of chemicals are used on land at shore facilities, in the air in combat and reconnaissance aircraft, on seas around the world in surface vessels, and in submarine vessels by the navy and marine corps. Although the chemicals used are for the large part harmless, there is a significant amount of chemicals in use that can be health hazards during specific exposure circumstances. The Navy Environmental Health Center (NEHC) is primarily tasked with assessing these hazards. The NEHC completes its tasks by reviewing toxicological and related data and preparing health-hazard assessments (HHAs) for the different chemicals.</p> <p>Since the NEHC is continually asked to develop these HHAs, the National Research Council (NRC) was asked to assess independently the validity and effectiveness of NEHC’s HHA process, in order to determine whether the process as implemented provides the Navy with the best, comprehensive, and defensible evaluations of health hazards and to identify any elements that might require improvement. The task was assigned to the Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology’s Committee on Toxicology’s (COT’s) Subcommittee on Toxicological hazard and Risk Assessment.</p> <p><em>Review of the U.S. Navy Environmental Health Center’s Health-Hazard Assessment Process</em> presents the subcommittee’s report. The report is the work of expertise in general toxicology, inhalation toxicology, epidemiology, neurotoxicology, immunotoxicology, reproductive and developmental toxicology, pharmacology, medicine, risk assessment, and biostatistics. It is based on its review of documents provided by NEHC, presentations by NEHC personnel, and site visits to NEHC in Norfolk, Virginia and an aircraft carrier in San Diego, California.</p>

Berlin Life and Death in the City at the Center of the World [Audiobook]


English | ASIN: B0B2334TWY | 2022 | 16 hours and 47 minutes | MP3 | M4B | 464 MB
Sinclair McKay’s portrait of Berlin from 1919 forward explores the city’s broad human history, from the end of the Great War to the Blockade, rise of the Wall, and beyond. Sinclair McKay’s Berlin begins by taking listeners back to 1919, when the city emerged from the shadows of the Great War to become an extraordinary by-word for modernity-in art, cinema, architecture, industry, science, and politics. He traces the city’s history through the rise of Hitler and the Battle for Berlin, which ended in the final conquest of the city in 1945. It was a key moment in modern world history, but beyond the global repercussions lay thousands of individual stories of agony. From the countless women who endured nightmare ordeals at the hands of the Soviet soldiers to the teenage boys fitted with steel helmets too big for their heads and guns too big for their hands, McKay thrusts listeners into the human cataclysm that tore down the modernity of the streets and reduced what was once the most sophisticated city on earth to ruins.
