First impression: not sure yet, could be good, could be cut and pasted from the Wolfram documentation. ( Aren't most computer books written like that? )
As is the case with all programming books, once you are profound in a language, books seem redundant because you can basically dream the manual anyway. The Manual. Oddly enough, books, ( including manuals ) aren't popular among those who are still learning a language ( or should I say platform ).
Welcome to my book, which I hope you will enjoy. I also hope you learn
many things that will help you for the rest of your life.
Have you ever noticed the shape of the average American compared to that
of the average Asian? There are more obese people in America than any other
country and the problem is growing rapidly. This trend is the result of poor diet
and inappropriate lifestyles. Fortunately, we are finally waking up to what the
Asian cultures can teach us in terms of health care (acupuncture, herbology, tai
chi, etc.); now it is time to learn what they have discovered about...
High cooking temperature and thus high pressure is needed when alcohols are
used as cooking chemicals. Methanol has been used as an additive in kraft,
sulphite and soda pulping. However, the use of methanol may be hazardous,
since methanol is a highly flammable and toxic chemical. Demonstration plants
using the alkaline sulphite-anthraquinone-methanol process (ASAM) (Patt &
Kordsachia 1986, Khristova et al. 2002, Patt et al. 1999) and the soda pulping
method with methanol (Organocell) (Schroeter & Dahlmann 1991) have been
After being informed about the annual outbreak and findings from the literature review, focus
groups discussed two questions: “How do you think the bacteria are being transmitted to the
small babies?” and “What could we do to prevent this transmission?” The women in the
focus groups identified hygiene breaks, either during refrigeration or during the long hours of
cleaning the chitterlings, as the likely method of transmission to children. Both interventions
were evaluated in home cleaning and cooking trials, and in laboratory studies.
This paper presents an unsupervised topic identiﬁcation method integrating linguistic and visual information based on Hidden Markov Models (HMMs). We employ HMMs for topic identiﬁcation, wherein a state corresponds to a topic and various features including linguistic, visual and audio information are observed. Our experiments on two kinds of cooking TV programs show the effectiveness of our proposed method.
Most foods contain some folate. The highest concentrations are found in liver, yeast, spinach, other greens, and nuts (100 µg/100 g). The total folate content of an average Western diet is ~250 µg daily, but the amount varies widely according to the type of food eaten and the method of cooking. Folate is easily destroyed by heating, particularly in large volumes of water. Total-body folate in the adult is ~10 mg, the liver containing the largest store. Daily adult requirements are ~100 µg, so stores are only sufficient for 3–4 months in normal adults and severe folate deficiency may...

Locked volar plating for complex distal radius fractures: Patient reported outcomes and satisfaction
RE Anakwe*, LAK Khan, RE Cook, JE McEachan
Background: Distal radius fractures are common. The increasing prevalence of osteoporosis contributes to frequently complex articular injuries sustained even after low energy falls. The best method of treating complex type C distal radius fractures is debated.
