Le testament d d'un excentr2 pdf

Toute une ville en joie Un étranger, arrivé dans la principale cité de l’Illinois le matin du 3 avril 1897, aurait pu, à bon droit, se considérer comme le favori du Dieu des voyageurs. Ce jour-là, son carnet se fût enrichi de notes curieuses, propres à fournir la matière d’articles sensationnels. Et, assurément, s’il avait prolongé de quelques semaines d’abord, de quelques mois ensuite, .....

Be who you are and be proud: Brittney Griner, intersectional invisibility and digital possibilities.

This article examines current professional basketball player, Brittney Griner, and the ways in which her personal and athletic lives are represented on social media. In particular, her visibility and posts on her public Instagram account allow for a consideration of the digital possibilities for social change by lesbian sporting celebrities. This analysis interrogates these possibilities through a close reading of several Instagram posts regarding Griner’s romantic relationship with fellow basketball star, Glory Johnson. This article ultimately argues that Griner’s Instagram profile helps challenge the intersectional invisibility of Black lesbian sporting celebrities and discusses the implications of this visibility for similarly positioned LGB youth.

Practical Local Geoid Modelling of Benin City, Nigeria from Gravimetric Observations Using the Modif

The geometric heights obtained from GNSS observations cannot be used for engineering works as they are not reduced to the geoid. This study presents practical local geoid modelling from gravimetric observations using the modified Stokes integral for engineering applications in Benin City. A total of 52 points were observed with GNSS receivers and a gravimeter to respectively obtain their positions and absolute gravity values. The theoretical gravity values of the points were computed on the Clarke 1880 ellipsoid to obtain their local gravity anomalies. The modified Stokes integral was applied to compute the geoid heights of the points. The combined topographic effect was applied to the computed geoid heights of the points to obtain their precise geoid heights. The mean of the precise geoid heights of the points was computed to obtain the local gravimetric geoid model of the study area. The determined geoid model was validated for its reliability as well as the accuracy using the RMSE index. It is recommended that the use of assumed, as well as handheld GPS receiver heights for engineering works should be totally abolished as this study has established the local geoid model of Benin City.

Comparison of Three Gravimetric-Geometric Geoid Models for Best Local Geoid Model of Benin City, Nig

The conversion of geometric as well as ellipsoidal heights from GNSS observations to practical heights for engineering constructions has necessitated the determination of the local geoid model of areas. Benin City is a developing area which requires a local geoid model for conversion of geometric heights to orthometric heights for physical developments in the area. This paper is on the best local geoid model of Benin City, Nigeria by comparing three gravimetric-geometric geoid models of the study area. GNSS and gravimetric observations were carried out on 49 points to respectively obtain their coordinates and absolute gravity values. The theoretical gravity values of the points were computed on the Clarke 1880 ellipsoid, subtracted from the absolute gravity values and corrected for the air (free air) to obtain the free air gravity anomalies of the points. The computed free air gravity anomalies were applied to compute the geoid heights of the points using the integration of the modified Stokes integral. Three geometric geoid surfaces (plane, second degree and third degree surfaces) were fitted to the computed gravimetric geoid heights using the least squares technique to obtain the gravimetric-geometric geoid models of the study area. The RMSE of the three gravimetric-geometric geoid models were computed to determine their (the models) accuracy. The three gravimetric-geometric geoid models were compared using their accuracy to obtain the most suitable geoid model of the study area. The results of the comparison showed that the third degree gravimetric-geometric geoid model is most suitable for application in the study area. It is recommended that ellipsoidal heights obtained from GNSS observation within Benin City, Nigeria should be converted to orthometric heights using the third degree geoid model.

Borgia !

Zévaco s’installe à Paris à sa sortie de l’armée, en 1888. Il devient journaliste, puis secrétaire de rédaction à L’Egalité que dirige le socialiste révolutionnaire Jules Roques. Il se présente sans succès aux élections législatives de 1889 pour la Ligue socialiste de Roques: il fait à cette époque connaissance avec Louise Michel et croise également Aristide Bruant et Séverine. Il fera plusieurs séjours à la prison Sainte-Pélagie pour des articles libertaires, en pleine période d’attentats anarchistes. Il est condamné le 6 octobre 1892 par la cour d'assise de la Seine pour avoir déclaré dans une réunion publique à Paris : « Les bourgeois nous tuent par la faim ; volons, tuons, dynamitons, tous les moyens sont bons pour nous débarrasser de cette pourriture » Il abandonne le journalisme politique en 1900, après avoir tenté de défendre Alfred Dreyfus. En même temps, son retour vers le roman feuilleton avec Borgia! en 1900, publié dans le journal de Jean Jaurès La Petite République socialiste est couronné de succès

Application of Surpac and Whittle Software in Open Pit Optimisation and Design

This paper studies the Surpac and Whittle software and their application in designing an optimised pit. Exploration data from Mpeasem Gold Mining Project (MGMP) is used as the primary input for the work. The work entails: block modelling of MGMP deposit; pit optimisation; analysis of the Pit NPV’s sensitivity to changes in gold price and mining cost; and detailed pit design. The deposit has undergone intense weathering, forming an oxidised gold deposit up to about 50 m in depth. Sections through the deposit were used to create a solid model of the orebody, which was divided into blocks to form a block model comprising unit blocks measuring 20 m x 20 m x 10 m. The block model grade was estimated using the Inverse Distance Weighting (IDW) method, giving an average grade of 1.533 g/t with 22.79 Mt of ore. During the optimisation, a total of 82 optimal pit outlines were generated using the 3D Lerchs-Grossmann algorithm. Pit 36 was chosen having the highest the Net Present Value (NPV) @ 10% of $338.60 million. The optimal pit had 21.19 Mt of ore at an average grade of 1.557 g/t. The NPV was very sensitive to gold price changes but marginally sensitive to mining cost changes. From the optimal pit, a detailed pit designed with circular ramp was selected over one with all-cut ramp since it had a higher expected revenue and lower stripping ratio. It is concluded that Surpac and Whittle software combine as a powerful tool for designing an optimal pit.

French Grammar in Context

Authentic texts from a rich variety of sources, literary and journalistic, are used as the starting point for the illustration and explanation of key areas of French grammar. Each point is consolidated with a wide range of written and spoken exercises. Grammar is presented not as an end in itself, but as a tool essential to enjoying French, understanding native speakers and communicating effectively with them. Literary texts and poems are taken from renowned French authors such as Albert Camus, Zola, André Malraux, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Stendhal and Jacques Prévert. News sources include Libération, Le Point, Marianne, and Le Monde Diplomatique, in addition to articles from regional papers such as Ouest-France and La Voix du Nord. Lifestyle articles are included from magazines such as Elle. This fourth edition has been updated to include new extracts from writers such as Christiane Rochefort , Raymond Queneau and Roch Carrier. In addition to extra exercises within the book, this new edition is supported by a companion website that offers a wealth of additional interactive exercises to practise and reinforce the material covered. French Grammar in Context is aimed at intermediate and advanced students and is ideal for both independent and class-based study.

We describe an ecient Particle-Mesh algorithm for the Connection Machine CM-5. Our particular method parallelizes well and the computation time per time step decreases as the particles become more clustered. We achieve oating-point computation rates of 4{5 MFlops/sec/processing node and total operations (the sum of oating-point and integer arithmetic plus communications) of 5{10 MOps/sec/processing node. The rates scale almost linearly from 32 to 256 processors. Although some of what we discuss is speci c to the CM-5, many aspects (e.g., the computation of the force on a mesh) are generic to all implementations, and other aspects (e.g., the algorithm for assignment of the density to the mesh) are useful on any parallel computer.

Parallel P3M with exact calculation of short range forces

A P3M (Particle-Particle, Particle-Mesh) algorithm to compute the gravitational force on a set of particles is described. The gravitational force is computed using Fast Fourier Transforms. This leads to an incorrect force when the distance between two particles is of the order of a grid cell.

Theory of Local Times

A model of a stationary universe is proposed. In this framework, time is defined as a local and quantum-mechanical notion in the sense that it is defined for each local and quantum-mechanical system consisting of finite number of particles. The total universe consisting of infinite number of particles has no time associated. It is a stationary bound state of the total Hamiltonian of infinite degrees of freedom. The quantum mechanics and the theory of general relativity are consistently united in this context if one uses this notion of local and quantum-mechanical time. As one of the consequences, the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox is resolved. The Hubble red-shift is explained as a consequence of general relativity which is consistent with quantum mechanics. This does not require us to argue on the beginning nor the end of the universe. The universe just exists without time.

From the epoch of recombination (z  10 3 ) till today, the typical den- sity contrasts have grown by a factor of about 106 in a Friedmann universe with = 1. However, during the same epoch the typical gravitational po- tential has grown only by a factor of order unity. We present theoretical arguments explaining the origin of this approximate constancy of gravita- tional potential. This fact can be exploited to provide a new, powerful, approximation scheme to study the formation of nonlinear structures in the universe. The essential idea of this method is to evolve the initial dis- tribution of particles using a gravitational potential frozen in time. We carry out this scheme for several standard models including the CDM and HDM and show that the results match quite well with those obtained by exact numerical simulations. We compute di erent statistical measures of clustering and compare them for the description of nonlinear evolution.

Feasibility study of a Superheated Superconducting Granule detector for cold dark matter search

The presented results are part of a feasibility study of a Superheated Supercon- ducting Granule (SSG) device for weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) detection. The sensitivity of SSG to nuclear recoils has been explored irradiat- ing SSG detectors with a 70MeV neutron beam proving that energy thresholds of ∼1keV can be reached in 30µm Zn and 17µm Sn granules. The successful irradiation experiments with neutrons encouraged us to plan a prototype SSG dark matter detector. The status of the project will be presented and the ex- pected counting rate for spin-independent WIMP interactions in SSG detectors will be discussed.

Quantum Squeezing and Cosmological Entropy Production †

The entropy growth in a cosmological process of pair production is completely determined by the associated squeezing parameter, and is insensitive to the num- ber of particles in the initial state. The total produced entropy may represent a significant fraction of the entropy stored today in the cosmic black-body radiation, provided pair production originates from a change in the background metric at a curvature scale of the Planck order.

This is a book that I wrote about the popular foods used by our people in the Negev. I wrote my article and explained the ways of making these foods and how to prepare them, and arranged his chapters according to the types of food, which are made from dairy products under their own section, which are made from grains or plants that fall under another section and so on. With the rest. Some of these articles have already been published in Akhbar Al-Naqab newspaper, and I naturally reviewed them before and again, but I have also carefully reviewed them and added a sentence here and a word there, like everyone who is keen to do it and the quality of what it offers people. The reader has fallen on some indignities, and excuse that we are human beings and perfection for us and perfection for God alone. Our goal was not to make this book a cookbook about ingredients and how to prepare food, but we wanted to document these things that bind our present to our past, to remember how our people were convinced of a little, how they adapted to the circumstances and the nature of the environment in which they lived, and how they followed the path of contentment and lived on The subsistence, and how these circumstances led to the rooting of the habit of generosity in them and the villages of the guest, and all the qualities related to the generosity, in addition to mutual respect and lend a hand and help. In conclusion, here is the book of folk food in your hands with fat and meat and authentic heritage material

Comment créer un business sur Internet qui rapporte

Je me nomme Sylvain Wealth. Je suis âgé de 35 ans, et je gagne entièrement ma vie sur Internet depuis plusieurs années. Beaucoup de gens me connaissent comme un blogueur à succès qui voyage partout dans le monde. D'autres me considèrent comme le mentor qui leur a ouvert les portes d'un business florissant en ligne. Mais qui suis-je vraiment ? J'ai découvert le business internet en 2008. À cette période, j'étais encore livreur pour un restaurant. Je travaillais pour le restaurant pendant les journées, et le soir, je me concentrais sur mes activités en ligne. Je dois l'avouer... Mes débuts n'ont pas toujours été faciles. En effet, n'ayant aucune expérience dans le domaine, j'ai dû me former seul en faisant des recherches sur Internet, en lisant des articles de blogs et des tonnes d'ebooks sur comment réussir en ligne.
