This new third edition of Bradt´s Israel has been fully updated to reflect all the most recent changes and includes a comprehensive and detailed history section, plus improved maps and structural revisions to aid navigation. Israel is a land where three world religions - Judaism, Christianity and Islam - meet in stunning landscapes, where ancient architecture stands next to modern, where the fertile north spills into the arid southern desert and where the secular live alongside the devout. From its ancient history and the sacred Jewish, Christian and Muslim sites of Jerusalem, to modern Tel Aviv with its trendy districts, countless museums and bustling markets, Israel has a lot more to offer than meets the eye. In Bradt´s Israel you´ll find tips on the top hotels and restaurants, details of local wines, fascinating hiking routes, plus all the information to get the best from Israel´s range of attractions. Each town shows the vast diversity of culture and traditions. Jerusalem offers an insight into the history of one of the world´s most poignant cities, whilst Tel Aviv is awash with boulevards and epitomises modernity. In turn Haifa is a true seaside gem, with its striking Baha´i Persian gardens, whilst Nazareth is the throbbing heart of Arab hospitality and warmth. From archaeological remains of Crusader castles and Roman cities, scuba diving off Eilat´s coast, marvelling at the mountainous Golan Heights to floating in the Dead Sea and discovering cool wadis and thermal baths, Bradt´s Israel is the perfect travelling companion, enlightening and enhancing every trip.
Minimally invasive procedures are increasingly utilized and are replacing open surgery to reduce scarring and pain, enhance patient recovery, and minimize cost. This guide provides step-by-step guidance, expert instruction, and detailed illustration of the most recent minimally invasive orthopedic spine procedures. With a variety of chapters covering critical developments in the field including the utilization of biologic materials, image-guided surgery, and bone fusion, this guide delves into discussions of indications, methods for preoperative planning, complication avoidance strategies, and patient outcomes.
This book presents the basics and methods of nanoscale analytical techniques for tribology field. It gives guidance to the application of mechanical, microstructural, chemical characterization methods and topography analysis of materials. It provides an overview of the of state-of-the-art for researchers and practitioners in the field of tribology. It shows different examples to the application of mechanical, microstructural, chemical characterization methods and topography analysis of materials. Friction and Wear phenomena are governed by complexe processes at the interface of sliding surfaces. For a detailed understanding of these phenomena many surface sensitive techniques have become available in recent years. The applied methods are atom probe tomography, in situ TEM, SERS, NEXAFS, in situ XPS, nanoindentation and in situ Raman spectroscopy. A survey of new related numerical calculations completes this book. This concerns ab-initio coupling, numerical calculations for mechanical aspects and density functional theory (DFT) to study chemical reactivity.
This Manual provides a general yet detailed account on the current research in Portuguese linguistics by combining overview chapters and in-depth analyses of selected topics. It integrates diachronic and synchronic, standard and dialectal, adult grammar and L1 acquisition data and offers comprehensive information on specific features of Portuguese, using the methods and insights of present-day linguistic research. The overview chapters feature linguistic fields that significantly developed over the past decades in the context of research on Portuguese (e.g. language contact, prosody, the computational lexicon, forensic phonetics). The chapters covering particular topics in syntax, semantics and phonology deal with new empirical data and current analyses of well-known features of Portuguese such as the inflected infinitive, the pattern of clitic placement, the subjunctive, the reduction of atonic vowels, as well as newer issues (e.g. null subjects, complex predicates, the answering system, some dialectal phenomena). The volume will be unique as a state-of-the-art collection of papers conceived to be used as a Manual of Portuguese Linguistics in the academic context. The individual contributors rank among the best-known experts in the field. Este manual apresenta o estado atual da investigação em linguística portuguesa, combinando abordagens panorâmicas e análises detalhadas de tópicos selecionados. O volume articula dados diacrónicos e sincrónicos, do português padrão e dialetal, da gramática do adulto e da aquisição de L1, explorando propriedades gramaticais características do português através dos métodos e teorias da linguística contemporânea. Os capítulos panorâmicos integram áreas de investigação que tiveram nas últimas décadas um desenvolvimento significativo no âmbito da linguística portuguesa (e.g. línguas em contacto, prosódia, léxico computacional, fonética forense). Os capítulos dedicados a tópicos de sintaxe, semântica e fonologia oferecem dados empíricos novos e análises atuais de aspetos do português como o infinitivo flexionado, o padrão de colocação dos pronomes clíticos, o conjuntivo, a redução das vogais átonos, a par de temas mais recentes, como os sujeitos nulos, os complexos verbais, o sistema responsivo, alguns fenómenos dialetais. Globalmente, trata-se de uma coleção única de artigos, especificamente concebida como Manual de Linguística Portuguesa destinado ao contexto académico. Os autores são destacados especialistas nas matérias estudadas.
This volume describes a uniform international approach for classifying and reporting salivary gland FNA samples. The new reporting system is evidence-based using data from the literature as well as upon the experience of a multi-disciplinary group of leading experts involved in the field of salivary gland cytopathology. Each diagnostic category of this novel salivary gland reporting system includes detailed descriptions of the cytologic criteria as well as a comprehensive set of photomicrographs demonstrating all of the key microscopic features along with annotated descriptions for each image. Designed as a practical book with easy readability, The Milan System for Reporting Salivary Gland Cytopathology combines the high-quality images of an atlas with a logical approach described in concise text-form and in line-drawing algorithms. It presents for the first time, an international cytologic reporting system for salivary gland lesions designed and endorsed by a panel of experts in the field.
This book introduces readers to the basic concepts of Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and its most important analysis algorithms using a hands-on approach based on the open-source RHRV software. HRV refers to the variation over time of the intervals between consecutive heartbeats. Despite its apparent simplicity, HRV is one of the most important markers of the autonomic nervous system activity and it has been recognized as a useful predictor of several pathologies. The book discusses all the basic HRV topics, including the physiological contributions to HRV, clinical applications, HRV data acquisition, HRV data manipulation and HRV analysis using time-domain, frequency-domain, time-frequency, nonlinear and fractal techniques. Detailed examples based on real data sets are provided throughout the book to illustrate the algorithms and discuss the physiological implications of the results. Offering a comprehensive guide to analyzing beat information with RHRV, the book is intended for masters and Ph.D. students in various disciplines such as biomedical engineering, human and veterinary medicine, biology, and pharmacy, as well as researchers conducting heart rate variability analyses on both human and animal data.
