When preparing this new edition for the press, my first inclination was to withdraw a few puzzles that appeared to be of inferior interest, and to substitute others for them. But, on second thoughts, I decided to let the book stand in its original form and add extended solutions and some short notes to certain problems that have in the past involved me in correspondence with interested readers who desired additional information. I have also provided—what was clearly needed for reference—an index.

In 1996, as South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission was beginning its hearings, Nicholas Gcaleka, a healer diviner from the town of Butterworth in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa, set off on a journey to retrieve the skull of Hintsa, the Xhosa king.

I have been asked how much of this tale of modern freebooters is true? In exactly which States have such

law-makers? Have sheriffs "hidden under the bed" and "handy men" bluffed the press? Have vast domains of
timber lands been stolen in blocks of thousands and hundreds of thousands of acres through "dummy"
entrymen? Have the federal law officers been shot to death above stolen coal min...
A mathemalical model is presented that describes heat and moisture transfer during the holpressing of MDF. The model includes conduction of heat between the press platens and the central layer of the mattress, phase change of water from the adsorbed to the vapor state and the convective heat and mass transfer through the edges of the mattress. This approach results in a three-dimensional unsleady-state problem in which the properties of the wood fibers, water and the wood-water system are dependent on temperature, mattress moisture content and steam pressure.
Clear differences between the missions and goals of the press and those of the military, particularly centering around the issues of access and operational security, make historical tensions between the two unsurprising and complete avoidance of tension unlikely. However, significant overlaps, including core goals of

This is the first dictionary entirely devoted to new words and meanings to

tradition of the Supplement to the Oxford English Dictionary in attempting
to record the history of some recent additions to the language, but,
unlike the Supplement, it is necessarily very selective in the words,
phrases, and meanings whose stories it sets out to tell and it stands as
an independent work, unrelated (except in the resources it...
