Die Geschichte von Ötzi, dem Mann aus dem Eis, in landschaftsgetreuen Bildern. Südtirol - sein Lebensraum vor etwa 5300 Jahren vom Sonnenberg im unteren Vinschgau bis zum Similaun im Schnalstal mit den Besonderheiten der Kupferzeit: Schalensteine, Klumperplatten, Menhire, Siedlungen ... Das Leben in der Gemeinschaft mit Festen und Ritualen sowie der Arbeit der Hirten und Jäger. 1991 wurde sein mumifizierter Leichnam am Tisenjoch am Alpenhauptkamm in den Ötztaler Alpen zufällig durch das Ehepaar Simon entdeckt. Wieso war Reinhold Messner als einer der Ersten an der Fundstelle? Wieso wurde der Sensationsfund von der Ötztaler Bergwacht geborgen und zunächst nach Innsbruck gebracht und kam erst später nach Bozen? Alles Fragen, die der Comic authentisch beantwortet. La storia di Ötzi, l´uomo dei ghiacci, raccontata e inserita in paesaggi realistici. Il Sudtirolo, habitat di Ötzi 5300 anni fa, tra il Monte Sole in Bassa Venosta e il Similaun in Val Senales, con informazioni e curiosità dell´eneolitico: coppelle, ´´Klumperplatten´´, menhir, insediamenti... la vita della comunità tra feste e rituali. Il lavoro dei cacciatori e dei pastori. Nel 1991, i coniugi Simon trovarono casualmente sul giogo Tisenjoch sullo spartiacque principale delle Alpi Venoste, il corpo mummificato di Ötzi. Come mai fu Reinhold Messner uno dei primi presenti sul luogo del ritrovamento? Perché la sensazionale scoperta fu tenuta nascosta dal servizio di soccorso alpino dell´Ötztal e la mummia fu portata inizialmente a Innsbruck per essere trasferita solo successivamente a Bolzano? Sono le domande alle quali il fumetto risponde con originalità. The story of Ötzi the Iceman in images that reflect the landscape. South Tyrol, where Ötzi lived about 5300 years ago, from Sonnenberg mountain in lower Vinschgau to Similaun in the Schnals valley, with features that are characteristic of the Copper Age: cup-marked stones, ´´klumperplatten´´ (large horizontal stone slabs with a second stone on top), menhirs, settlements .... Life in the community with feasts and rituals and the work of the herdsmen and hunters. In 1991, Ötzi´s mummified corpse was found by a couple, the Simons, near the Tisenjoch pass on the main Alpine ridge in the Ötztal Alps. Why was Reinhold Messner one of the first people at the discovery site? Why was this sensational find retrieved by the Ötz Valley mountain rescue team, brought to Innsbruck initially and only later to Bolzano? These are all questions to which the comic will provide genuine answers.

This thoroughly revised and updated Fourth Edition of a time-honored text provides the reader with a comprehensive introduction to the field of scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDS) for elemental microanalysis, electron backscatter diffraction analysis (EBSD) for micro-crystallography, and focused ion beams. Students and academic researchers will find the text to be an authoritative and scholarly resource, while SEM operators and a diversity of practitioners - engineers, technicians, physical and biological scientists, clinicians, and technical managers - will find that every chapter has been overhauled to meet the more practical needs of the technologist and working professional. In a break with the past, this Fourth Edition de-emphasizes the design and physical operating basis of the instrumentation, including the electron sources, lenses, detectors, etc. In the modern SEM, many of the low level instrument parameters are now controlled and optimized by the microscope´s software, and user access is restricted. Although the software control system provides efficient and reproducible microscopy and microanalysis, the user must understand the parameter space wherein choices are made to achieve effective and meaningful microscopy, microanalysis, and micro-crystallography. Therefore, special emphasis is placed on beam energy, beam current, electron detector characteristics and controls, and ancillary techniques such as energy dispersive x-ray spectrometry (EDS) and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD). With 13 years between the publication of the third and fourth editions, new coverage reflects the many improvements in the instrument and analysis techniques. The SEM has evolved into a powerful and versatile characterization platform in which morphology, elemental composition, and crystal structure can be evaluated simultaneously. Extension of the SEM into a ´´dual beam´´ platform incorporating both electron and ion columns allows precision modification of the specimen by focused ion beam milling. New coverage in the Fourth Edition includes the increasing use of field emission guns and SEM instruments with high resolution capabilities, variable pressure SEM operation, theory, and measurement of x-rays with high throughput silicon drift detector (SDD-EDS) x-ray spectrometers. In addition to powerful vendor- supplied software to support data collection and processing, the microscopist can access advanced capabilities available in free, open source software platforms, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH) ImageJ-Fiji for image processing and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) DTSA II for quantitative EDS x-ray microanalysis and spectral simulation, both of which are extensively used in this work. However, the user has a responsibility to bring intellect, curiosity, and a proper skepticism to information on a computer screen and to the entire measurement process. This book helps you to achieve this goal. Realigns the text with the needs of a diverse audience from researchers and graduate students to SEM operators and technical managers Emphasizes practical, hands-on operation of the microscope, particularly user selection of the critical operating parameters to achieve meaningful results Provides step-by-step overviews of SEM, EDS, and EBSD and checklists of critical issues for SEM imaging, EDS x-ray microanalysis, and EBSD crystallographic measurements Makes extensive use of open source software: NIH ImageJ-FIJI for image processing and NIST DTSA II for quantitative EDS x-ray microanalysis and EDS spectral simulation. Includes case studies to illustrate practical problem solving Covers Helium ion scanning microscopy Organized into relatively self-contained modules - no need to ´´read it all´´ to understand a topic Includes
A l´image d´Al Uzza, mythique déesse nabatéenne de la Jordanie antique, l´oeuvre de Dominique Lemaître met en évidence contrastes de couleurs et de dynamiques, violence et méditation.La percussion y trouve ainsi une place tantôt en osmose, tantôt en opposition avec le piano, alternant un jeu soliste toujours contrôlé, mélodique avec les peaux, parfois chaotique comprenant également ponctuations, résonances méditatives, brisures ou soutiens au phrasé pianistique.Celui-ci accompagne souvent la percussion dans sa démarche au moyen de résonances fondues mais tient un rôle nettement prédominant dans la partie centrale, d´un caractère cérémonial. Ainsi les longues phrases, ponctuées de nuances contrastées génèrent de nouvelles couleurs en se combinant aux différents timbres percussifs.Thierry MiroglioNomenclature des instruments:6 Tom Toms (échelonnés du grave à l´aigu)3 Tam Tams (grave, medium, aigu)3 cloches plaque (grave, medium, aigu - éventuellement les cloches plaque peuvent être remplacées par des instruments métalliques à longues résonances)1 jeu de crotales 2 octavesLes Tam Tams et les cloches plaque pourront être placées sur un portique à 2 étages.Baguettes:4 baguettes de vibraphone medium / dures (Ref.

A foremost thinker on science and religion argues that an adequate understanding of cosmic history requires attention to the emergence of interiority, including religious aspiration Over the past two centuries scientific advances have made it clear that the universe is a story still unfolding. In this thought-provoking book, John F. Haught considers the deeper implications of this discovery. He contends that many others who have written books on life and the universe - including Stephen Hawking, Stephen Jay Gould, and Richard Dawkins - have overlooked a crucial aspect of cosmic history: the drama of life´s awakening to interiority and religious awareness. Science may illuminate the outside story of the universe, but a full telling of the cosmic story cannot ignore the inside development that interiority represents. Haught addresses two primary questions: what does the arrival of religion tell us about the universe, and what does our understanding of the cosmos as an unfinished drama tell us about religion? The history of religion may be ambiguous and sometimes even barbarous, he asserts, but its role in the story of cosmic emergence and awakening must be taken into account.
