Author: Rob Ryan Sullivan
Narrator: Rob Ryan Sullivan, Sally Bosley

This book started as a collection of experiences that changed the way Rob Sullivan viewed spirituality, the world, and his place in it. It has evolved into a book about the important signs and mile-markers we all encounter, many of which only make sense in hindsight. It serves as both a reminder and a guidebook to open our eyes and minds to the experiences our intuition flags as important – even when we can’t make sense of them in the moment. Rob-and others-share in A Trek Within: Following Your Inner Compass to inspire people to be open to the many miracles that happen around us.

English | 2017 | ISBN: 1847158102 | EPUB | pages: 206 | 0.6 mb
When Mary Adams sees Millais’ depiction of the tragic Ophelia, a whole new world opens up for her. Determined to find out more about the beautiful girl in the painting, she hears the story of Lizzie Siddal – a girl from a modest background, not unlike her own, who has found fame and fortune against the odds. Mary sets out to become a Pre-Raphaelite muse, too, and reinvents herself as Persephone Lavelle. But as she fights her way to become the new face of London’s glittering art scene, ‘Persephone’ ends up mingling with some of the city’s more nefarious types and is forced to make some impossible choices.

Car following Dynamics Experiments and Models

Over the past nine decades, the field of traffic flow studies has witnessed remarkable advancements driven by empirical data. These data have illuminated traffic phenomena like breakdowns, oscillations, and hysteresis. However, despite these strides, the intricate nature of traffic flow and its underlying mechanisms remain subjects of ongoing debate and incomplete comprehension. Robert Herman, the pioneering figure in transportation science, firmly believed in the experimental essence of traffic theory. Unlike conventional practices of collecting limited traffic flow data, conducting traffic experiments empowers control of flow composition and rate, minimizes interference from complex variables, and facilitates the discovery of fundamental characteristics and mechanisms of traffic flow. In alignment with Herman’s conviction, the authors of this book undertook a series of experimental and modeling studies to delve into the intricacies of traffic flow evolution through the lens of car-following dynamics. Rooted in systems science and engineering theory, this book commences with experimental exploration of traffic flow. Employing methods to unearth individual decision-making mechanisms, the evolutionary patterns of group behavior, and their interconnectedness, theoretical models are employed to bridge micro-mechanisms with macro-phenomena. This approach introduces innovative ideas and methods, fostering the refined development of urban traffic behavior and management theory. It makes vital contributions in unraveling driver behavior and the evolution of road traffic flow, transcending conventional theories, and addressing globally recognized transportation challenges. Ultimately, it plays a pivotal role in advancing modern traffic flow theory that aligns with real-world complexities.

Following Caesar From Rome to Constantinople, the Pathways That Planted the Seeds of Empire [Audiobook]


Free Download Following Caesar: From Rome to Constantinople, the Pathways That Planted the Seeds of Empire (Audiobook)
English | ASIN: B0CP6DR8QP | 2023 | 7 hours and 7 minutes | M4B@128 kbps | 398 MB
Author: John Keahey
Narrator: Tom Perkins

In 66 BC, young, ambitious Julius Caesar, seeking recognition and authority, became the curator of the Via Appia. He borrowed significant sums to restore the ancient highway. It was a way to curry favor from Roman citizens in villages along the route, built from Rome to Brindisi between 312-191 BC. After achieving greatness in Rome and the far reaches of Gaul, he led armies along this road to battle enemies in Roman civil wars. And then, across the Adriatic Sea, he joined Via Appia’s sister road, the Via Egnatia that began in today’s Albania. Other armies followed these two roads that eventually connected Rome to Byzantium, today’s Istanbul.
