Daniel is trapped in Ubo. He has no idea how long he has been imprisoned there by the roaches. Every resident has a similar memory of the journey: a dream of dry, chitinous wings crossing the moon, the gigantic insects dropping swiftly over the houses; the creatures, like a deck of baroquely ornamented cards, fanning themselves from one hidden world into the next. And now each day they force Daniel to play a different figure from humanity’s violent history, from a frenzied Jack the Ripper to a stumbling and confused Stalin, to a self-proclaimed god executing survivors atop the ruins of the world. As skies burn and prisoners go mad, identities dissolve as the experiments evolve, and no one can foretell their mysterious end.

A blend of science fiction and horror, award-winning author Steve Rasnic Tem’s new novel is a chilling story exploring the roots of violence and its effect on a possible future. Daniel is trapped in Ubo. He has no idea how long he has been imprisoned there by the roaches. Every resident has a similar memory of the journey to Ubo: a dream of dry, chitinous wings crossing the moon, the gigantic insects dropping swiftly over the houses of the neighborhood, passing through walls and windows as if by magic, or science. The creatures, like a deck of baroquely ornamented cards, fanning themselves from one hidden world into the next. And now each day they force Daniel to play a different figure from humanity’s violent history, from a frenzied Jack the Ripper to a stumbling and confused Stalin to a self-proclaimed god executing survivors atop the ruins of the world. The scenarios mutate day after day in this camp somewhere beyond the rules of time. As skies burn and prisoners go mad, identities dissolve as the experiments evolve, and no one can foretell their mysterious end.

The Manual sets out an internationally agreed framework for the compilation and reporting of statistics on international trade in services in the broad sense. It addresses the growing need, including in international trade negotiations and agreements, for more detailed, comparable, and comprehensive statistics on this type of trade in its various forms. The recommendations will enable countries to progressively expand and structure the information they compile in an internationally comparable way. The Manual conforms with and explicitly relates to the System of National Accounts 1993 and the fifth edition of the IMF’s Balance of Payments Manual. It is published jointly by the United Nations, European Union, IMF, OECD, UNCTAD, and World Trade Organization.

From a study of knowledge of the sea among indigenous cultures in the South Seas to inquiries into the subject of sea monsters, from studies of Pacific currents to descriptions of ocean-going research vessels, the sixty-three essays presented here reflect the scientific complexity and richness of social relationships that characterize ocean-ographic history. Based on papers presented at the Fifth International Congress on the History of Oceanography held at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (the first ICHO meeting following the cessation of the Cold War), the volume features an unusual breadth of contributions. Oceanography itself involves the full spectrum of physical, biological, and earth sciences in their formal, empirical, and applied manifestations. The contributors to Oceanographic History: The Pacific and Beyond undertake the interdisciplinary task of telling the story of oceanography’s past, drawing on diverse methodologies. Their essays explore the concepts, techniques, and technologies of oceanography, as well as the social, economic, and institutional determinants of oceanographic history. Although focused on the Pacific, the geographic range of subjects is global and includes Micronesia, East Africa, and Antarctica; the bathymetric range comprises inshore fisheries, coral reefs, and the "azoic zone." The seventy-one contributors represent every continent of the globe except Antarctica, bringing together material on the history of oceanography never before published.

Results of the analysis of two long-period noise samples from Tonto Forest Seismological Observatory (TFO) and three from Uinta Basin Seismological Observatory (UBO) are presented. Analysis methods include single channel power density spectra, determination of multichannel coherences, and computation of two-dimensional frequency-wavenumber spectra. Results are compared to results obtained earlier from the Montana Large Aperture Seismic Array; the noise fields at the three sites are found to be generally similar. Comparison of array processing methods for the UBO and TFO data indicate that little more than 2 db noise suppression improvement above the 6-7 db obtainable by beamsteer processing can be expected from multichannel filter processing. There is some evidence of acoustically coupled low-frequency propagating noise in the TFO data. (Author).

The role of data management becomes more and more crucial in a totally connected world. Having the right data at the right time at the right place is therefore one of the most challenging research issues we face in the coming years. This Festschrift volume is devoted to Hartmut Wedekind on the occasion of his 70th birthday and comprises a total of 18 articles discussing a broad spectrum of issues related to data management. All articles are (co-)authored by academic children and grandchildren of Hartmut Wedekind and therefore reflect the multifaceted selection of academic topics that he explored, discussed, and published on during his academic life. All articles are clustered into four different parts, focusing on motivation and modeling issues, infrastructural services, application design, and finally different applications. The scope of the articles reaches from visionary illustrations of data management in a connected world through core database techniques in the context of database caching, notification services, etc., to the design and description of data-intensive applications.
