Summaries of Book :

Is Christ going to return to the earth physically? Will the Rapture of the church occur? The Bible answers these questions in the affirmative. So when will these things take place? After years of studying this, I am convinced that not only will the Lord Jesus be coming to reign on this earth from Jerusalem but He will be doing so very shortly. I believe that the Bible in fact tells us the exact date of His return! Not only that, it also tells us the exact date of the Rapture, or at least the time in which it will occur. Even more, it tells us when the final seven-year period will begin and when the Antichrist will reveal himself—to the day! I know that many might express incredulity at such claims and even shock at the utter audacity to proclaim something so preposterous, and I do not blame you if you do feel this way. I only ask that you read and consider for yourself. The prophetic time line laid out in this book is absolute and can be overlaid onto the Gregorian calendar. I encourage you to read and discover for yourself why I am so confident in my declarations and how those prophetic time stamps align on our modern calendar. When done and when applied to what Scripture says and the history of the church age, it tells us the physical return of Christ to the earth could very well take place on April 9, 2033. Get ready to be shocked as the book of Revelation will be unfolded to you in a way you have probably never seen before.

Book Excerpt:

Voluntary land conservation, resulting from increasingly alluring tax benefits, has significantly changed the face of land use in the United States and promises to have an even more significant influence in the future. There are more than 1,500 land trusts in the U.S. today, involving millions of acres of land that have been permanently protected by conservation easements. Most of these land trusts depend heavily upon the significant income or estate tax benefits offered by the federal tax code as an incentive for voluntary land conservation. However, only a very small percentage of land trust personnel, landowners or their advisors, or even government officials, fully understand the complexity of the requirements for these tax benefits. This is a comprehensive book on the tax benefits of the charitable contribution, or bargain sale, of a conservation easement. It provides a detailed explanation of the complex and extensive requirements of the federal tax code and related concepts, including the rules governing the operation of tax-exempt organizations such as land trusts. Clearly written, systematic in its coverage, it is intended to be of value for anyone who deals with land trust issues, including land trust staff and trustees, landowners, lawyers, accountants, government officials, and interested lay people. Structured for easy reference, A Tax Guide to Conservation Easements is designed to be used as a resource tool. Related topics are cross-referenced throughout. All principles in the book are illustrated with one or more useful examples. The tax benefits of contributing a conservation easement are unquestionably the heart of voluntary land conservation today. Knowledge of the tax law relating to land trusts and conservation easements is vital to properly establishing and managing land trusts and to insuring the tax deductibility of conservation easements. The future of voluntary land conservation is dependent on a clear understanding of tax policy. Complete, meticulous, and up to date, A Tax Guide to Conservation Easements is an essential handbook.

Book Excerpt:

Humanity is about to enter what the Bible calls "the time of the end," the seventieth week of Daniel, otherwise known as the Revelation of Jesus Christ.This book, undergirded and based upon biblical prophecy presents the time frame, the chronology of events, and the solution you must choose if you want to survive until the rapture.In February 2028, the angels of heaven will announce, "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of God and of His Christ." All the nations of the world will reject that decree, and Jesus Christ, the "King of kings and Lord of lords," is going to become the enemy of mankind. What are you going to do, oh reader, when the UFOs begin to show up? What are you going to think about Jesus and God then? Are you going to believe the "aliens" or are you going to believe the Word of God? If you don't know the truth, how will you recognize deception?By May 2033, the end of this age will have come. The church will be gone from the earth. The climate will be altered into a new system without the sun. Civilization will have ceased to exist. In fact, only a remnant of Israel will survive to populate the earth going into the Millennium. Mankind is going to be exterminated from off the surface of the earth by judgments of hail, fire, famine, pestilence, plagues, war, heat, economic collapse, and finally an earthquake so powerful that every city in the world will be destroyed, and the mountains and islands are going to disappear! The only thing that will remain is darkness.This is the prophecy of the end. Get ready; it is coming. For more information, visit the author's additional website 2595days.com.

Book Excerpt:

In 1948 Paul Karrer and Ernst Jucker compiled the first comprehensive book on the topic of carotenoids. Their work included a list of 65 natural carotenoids with known and unknown structures. In Otto Isler's 'Carotenoids' which appeared in 1971, Otto Straub published a new and expanded 'List of Natural Carotenoids' comprised of 273 compounds and included all the literature data known at the time. This list proved to be of such value to those working in the field of carote noids that 5 years later Otto Straub came out with an up dated version ofthelist entitled 'Key to Carotenoids'. The present second edition of 'Key to Carotenoids' endeavors to provide the reader with the continuation of Straub's work.

Book Excerpt:

Beltrami fields exist commonly in all areas of wave theory. In particular, Beltrami fields are necessary to analyze electromagnetic wave propagation in isotropic chiral materials, numerous examples of which are found in organic chemistry. Artificial chiral composites are evaluated for electromagnetic engineering purposes as well. In this book a comprehensive analysis of electromagnetic fields in chiral materials has been made. Contents:Beltrami Fields and the Maxwell PostulatesBeltrami Field TheoryChiral MaterialsField Theory for Chiral Media – IField Theory for Chiral Media – IIRadiation in Chiral MediaPlane BoundariesBounded Chiral RegionsScattering Inside a Chiral Medium Readership: Chemists, physicists and materials scientists. keywords: “… the book has an wealth of information, and will be of use to the optical-activity and complex-media communities.” IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine “Throughout the book the writing is clear and in a lucid style, the text is well structured and World Scientific's layout is attractive. Each section is followed by an extensive list of references, which, apart from latest research publications, contain many historical gems … Clearly, a monograph of 535 pages provides a wealth of material, a selection of which could easily form the basis of a graduate course in advanced electromagnetism: either as an end in itself — to illuminate the many facets of chirality — or as a stepping stone to the study of more complex materials. The provision of many examples should facilitate further insights for the keen student … Yet, there is no doubt that this is a book most useful for the active researcher. Those with a vested interest in chirality would be ill-advised not to have a copy on their bookshelves. The appeal of Lakhtakia's book goes beyond that group though. Because of the wide-ranging connections of Beltrami fields to other areas of research, whether in electromagnetics or further afield, the many fundamental issues touched upon will provide interesting new insights for a much broader audience.” Int.

Economics is a social science concerned mainly with description and analysis of the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services.

Five main themes flow through the book – India’s potential to be the World’s third largest economic power by 2030, the challenges of socio-economic equity that India faces, the several opportunities that India has in that journey, the critical role of governance, leadership, management and administration, and the importance of mindset changes to power India’s futureeconomic growth. A special focus is laid on the role of government policies and projects in socio-economic development. The book sensitises the readers, including college students in general, and students of economics in particular, to the happenings around us which have significant economic import. The book makes all through its seventy chapters several suggestions to power India’s growth as a global economic superpower, on a plank of socioeconomic equity. This book serves as an expansive thought primer and focussed execution guide for an economically independent and resurgent India.

Book Excerpt:

After a difficult start of the year, pressures on the economy are moderating, helped by a stabilizing regional context. Growth, however, is expected to remain lower for longer, making adjustment policies even more important. While the appreciation of the exchange rate, together with the Public Investment Projects rescheduling, has reduced debt vulnerabilities, risks to the debt outlook persist. The authorities are taking additional efforts to adhere to the 2016 fiscal targets, but are asking for a relaxation of the 2017 targets given an improved debt outlook and a still weak economy. Despite declining dollarization, financial sector vulnerabilities remain high.

Book Excerpt:

The international trend towards migration is growing rapidly and becoming increasingly complex. As the first-wave generation of migrants ages, their children and even grandchildren are reaching adulthood having spent their entire lives in the countries their families chose long ago. International Perspectives: Integration and Inclusion is a wide-ranging exploration of this new, global reality. While many countries have been, and remain, resistant to migration, the sheer volume of people moving from one country to another is forcing public policy and perceptions to change. Migrant inclusion and integration, however, remains an issue in many locales. Insightful and timely, this volume brings together contributions from various countries and levels of the migrant experience in order to consider the ways in which states can facilitate the integration and inclusion of newcomers and minorities.

Book Excerpt:

The 1960s is one of the most heavily mythologised decades of the twentieth century. More than 50 years on, the era continues to capture the public’s imagination. The 1960s in Australia: People, Power and Politics recognises the complexity of social and cultural change by presenting a broad range of contributions that acknowledge an often overlooked fact – that not everyone experienced the 1960s in the same way. The diversity of the time is confirmed by contributions from a number of expert Australian historians who each provide an insight into Australia in the 1960s, offering an understanding of the social realities of this period as well as the ebbs and flows of transnational influence. This collection includes a featured contribution by prominent Australian historian, Raymond Evans, who provides a personal insight into the 1960s. Other contributors also place ‘the lived experience’ at the centre of their analysis by considering the growth of modern flats, the impact of cosmopolitanism, and sex and sexuality in the ‘Sixties’. The book also highlights the way power was deployed and deconstructed during this era by considering the psychiatric profession, the agenda of the counter-culture, and the role that women’s magazines played in reinforcing dominant gender paradigms. The complex politics of the era are also explored through the transnational impact of figures such as Anthony Crosland, the impact of the Vietnam War, and the multiplicity of motivations behind the anti-war protest and the Aboriginal rights movement of the era. The 1960s in Australia: Power, People and Politics is a fresh focus on a significant time in Australia’s history. It brings together a collection of innovative and engaging explorations into the Australian ‘Sixties’, which underline the complexity of the time.

Book Excerpt:

Based on the soft path approach to the energy sector, a transition is now under way to a soft path for water. This approach starts by ensuring that ecosystem needs for water are satisfied and then undertakes a radical approach to reducing human uses of water by economic and social incentives, including open decision-making, water markets and equitable pricing, and the application of super-efficient technology, all applied in ways that avoid jeopardizing quality of life. The soft path for water is therefore a management strategy that frees up water by curbing water waste. This book is the first to present and apply the water soft path approach. It has three aims: to bring to a wider audience the concept and the potential of water soft paths; to demonstrate that soft path analysis is analytical and practical, and not just eco-dreaming; and to indicate that soft paths are not only conceptually attractive but that they can be made economically and politically feasible. Includes a tool kit for planners and other practitioners. Published with POLIS Project and Friends of the Earth

With an emphasis on tax planning, Federal Taxation of Wealth Transfers: Cases and Problems integrates stimulating problems with statutes, regulations, and cases to create a highly teachable and student-friendly casebook. This casebook emphasizes problem solving, statutory construction, and policy-analysis skills, and is ideal for 2- or 3-credit courses in estate and gift taxation. The Fourth Edition has been updated to incorporate the 2012 American Taxpayer Relief Act provisions and the final portability regulations. It offers new case law, analyses and problems regarding private annuities, net gifts, and ascertainable standards. The text has been expanded to feature new cases, administrative rulings, and studies. Existing cases and text have been edited or deleted to highlight essential themes. The casebook is logically organized but its flexible organization accommodates reorganizing material to fit individual course structures, and could be used for a basic wealth transfer tax class or to complement either a wills and trust course or an estate planning course.

Book Excerpt:

Ethylenimine and Other Aziridines: Chemistry and Applications deals with the chemistry and applications of ethylenimine and other aziridines. Topics covered include the formation of the aziridine ring as well as the physical and biological properties of aziridines, their polymerization and polymers, and handling and storage. Analytical methods for aziridines and derivatives are also presented. Comprised of eight chapters, this book begins with a discussion on the formation of the aziridine ring through the unimolecular rearrangement of a vicinally substituted amine to an iminium salt; intramolecular displacement by carbanions; elimination-addition reactions; and intramolecular insertion reactions. The next chapter focuses on the thermal, mechanical, electrical and magnetic properties of aziridines, together with properties involving interaction with radiation. The reactions of aziridines, such as ring-preserving and ring-destroying reactions, are also considered. Subsequent chapters explore the polymerization and polymers of aziridines, along with their industrial uses and biological properties. The final chapter is devoted to handling and storage of aziridines in light of their toxicity. This monograph will be of value to students and researchers in the field of chemistry.
