New to metal detecting? Want to start hunting without a long learning curve? This QuickStart Guide is short and to the point, intended to get the reader familiar with metal detectors, their operation and accessories, then into the field to find great stuff. Those who already have a detector and a few accessories can start reading this book over breakfast and be out in the field hunting productively before lunch.
This isn't an exhaustive guide to everything you'll ever want to know about metal detecting. It's not a complete course in treasure hunting. It's a quick but thorough read from a detectorist who's been swinging a machine long enough to know how to do it successfully, but who hasn't forgotten what it feels like to be just beginning and needing a way to start smart.
The 108-page softcover contains everything you need to get out there for a productive hunt:
The handy pocket-sized book is intended to be used, not just read. It has a film-laminated cover, providing greater durability for use in the field, and its 5 x 8 size is easy to fit in your field bag. It retails for $7.95 and readers will find extended information at its website, Detecting101.com.
Stylist of the stars and successful fashion designer, Leila Darkchylde, is on top of the world - in her professional life that is. Her love life sucks. She expected to spend another Singles Awareness Day, er, Valentine's Day alone when she receives an unexpected package. When Leila opens the giant cardboard box it is to find none other than the masochistic, bass guitarist Morg Di Morte, of the heavy metal band The Necromancers. Morg is naked and tied up with red ribbon like some kind of present. This is only the first of many strange surprises in store for Leila this crazy, topsy-turvy Valentine's Day! This is the illustrated version which contains ink drawings done by author KuroKoneko Kamen.
The tandem cold rolling of metal strip is a large, highly complex nonlinear multivariable process the control of which poses a significant engineering challenge. Existing controllers have proven to be susceptible to disturbances and uncertainties in process variables and attempts to increase robustness to these phenomena have had their own drawbacks so a new approach is needed.
Tandem Cold Metal Rolling Mill Control deals primarily with a novel and practical advanced method for control of tandem cold metal rolling processes based on the recently emerging state-dependent Riccati equation technique. Background material is presented to assist the reader with a general control background to appreciate the significance and practical advantages of the new advanced control scheme over conventional and more recently proposed advanced techniques. A short history of tandem cold rolling is followed by descriptions of various types of cold rolling processes and a basic mathematical model of the process. The diverse conventional and advanced control methods and their advantages and disadvantages are compared, and a detailed treatment of the theoretical and practical aspects of the state-dependent algebraic Riccati equation technique given. The specific details of the new procedure are described in a manner not requiring detailed expertise in the control of tandem cold rolling. The results of simulations performed to verify the control model and overall system performance with the new controller coupled to the process model are included. Simulation results and data derived from actual operating mills are compared so as to make concrete the improvements in performance using the new method. Additionally, material is included which shows the new technique to be capable of extension to the control of a broad range of large-scale complex nonlinear processes.
Engineers working with control systems in the metal processing industries will find that the advanced control ideas promulgated here will be of considerable benefit in increasing the robustness of their systems and, therefore, the consistency of their products. Tandem Cold Metal Rolling Mill Control will also interest academics and graduate students interested in advanced automatic control and its practical application and in the uses of the state-dependent Ricatti equation in particular.
If you are feeling lost, can't make sense of life, Peter MacDonald has been there too. This is his story and how he discovered, that in the middle of his lostness, God had never lost Him and his awakening to Gods amazing plan for his life. It could be your story."God Help Me To Find My Way" is a inspirational book exploring how God has a plan for our lives, A plan for good and not for evil, a plan for You to have a future, a plan to have hope. God Help Me: Help Me God to find my Way is written to account for a logical thought process in the journey of discovery of how God wants good to prevail in your life. When we are at the end of ourselves, we cry out, Help Me God to Change My Life. We need to be open in that moment to let God speak to us and hear what He says to us. Help Me God To find My Way is intended to shine a light of revelation on our hearts to reveal to us how to find the direction we so desperately seek. God is just waiting for us to seek Him with an honest desire so he can reveal Himself to US.If You feel alone, lost or unhappy with life, this book could just be what you need to find your way.
Paramagnetic transition metal ions provide the opportunity for application of a wide variety of spectroscopic techniques. Although spectroscopic techniques are not as well known as conventional nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), they provide detailed information centered on the active site itself. This book describes the application of paramagnetic resonance techniques to a number of important systems in metallobiochemistry. Simultaneously, this volume provides information on novel experimantal methods and theoretical approaches to understanding the structure and function of metalloenzymes and other metallobiomolecules. The specific techniques described include electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy, and its derivative techniques, electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) and electron spin echo envelope modulation (ESEEM). These latter two techniques directly probe the nuclear environment of the paramagnetic active site, without interference from magnetically active nuclei that are not involved in the active site. Magnetic circular dichroism (MCD), which links magnetic resonance and oprical spectrospoy, is also described. The application of MCD to problems in metallobiochemistry is growing rapidly, yet uhere are few sources that clearly describe this complex technique. This volume provides several approaches involving MCD. Finally, this book also includes a wide variety of biological systems including heme proteins, iron-sulfur proteins, molybdopterins, manganese proteins, and copper proteins, as well as non-protein biological molecules, such as ribozymes.
