Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I wrote a book about my grandfather, who was the kindest, gentlest man I ever met. I traced his life from the Yiddish-speaking Jewish Quarter of Czernowitz to the killing fields of Transnistria and the concentration camps. #2 Yankel Wiesenfeld-Reiner, a Jewish man living in Czernowitz, Ukraine, was trying to sneak home before morning prayers. He was caught by his friend Zushe, who was against him attending Zionist meetings. #3 In 1926, a young Romanian man named Nicolae Totu pulled a revolver on a Jewish student named David Falik, killing him. The killer was paraded through town by his friends, adorned with ribbons and the flag of Romania. #4 Yankel and his friends attended Betar meetings, where they learned about the Zionist dream of returning to their ancestral homeland. They planned their escape from under the fascist jackboot and lived as free Jews in a new, revitalized Israel.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The Bible, in the singular, does not exist. Different communities have different Bibles, and they have them in different orders, languages, and books. #2 The Bible was used in the past to promote and defend different ideologies, and it continues to be used that way today. When read through Christian lenses, the Old Testament points to Jesus. When read through Jewish lenses, the Tanakh speaks to Jewish experience, without Jesus. #3 The term Bible is derived from the Greek word ta biblia, which means the books. The term implies that a particular collection of books has priority. There is no such thing as the Bible; different religious communities have different Bibles. #4 The term Old Testament is problematic, as it strips this work of its Christian context. To refer to the Jewish Bible, we use the medieval term Tanakh, an acronym of Torah (Hebrew instruction; the first five books, also known as the Pentateuch), Nevi’im (Hebrew prophets), and Ketuvim (Hebrew writings).

Handbook of Nanomaterials for Wastewater Treatment: Fundamentals and Scale up Issues provides coverage of the nanomaterials used for wastewater treatment, covering photocatalytic nanocomposite materials, nanomaterials used as adsorbents, water remediation processes, and their current status and challenges. The book explores the major applications of nanomaterials for effective catalysis and adsorption, also providing in-depth information on the properties and application of new advanced nanomaterials for wastewater treatment processes. This is an important reference source for researchers who need to solve basic and advanced problems relating to the use of nanomaterials for the development of wastewater treatment processes and technologies. As nanotechnology has the potential to substantially improve current water and wastewater treatment processes, the synthesis methods and physiochemical properties of nanomaterials and noble metal nanoparticles make their performance and mechanisms efficient for the treatment of various pollutants. Explains the properties of the most commonly used nanomaterials used for wastewater treatment Describes the major nanoscale synthesis and processing techniques for wastewater treatment Assesses the major challenges for using nanomaterials on a mass scale for wastewater treatment

Zvi Griliches' Contribution to the Theory of Human Capital

The paper discusses Zvi Griliches' contribution to the estimation of the earning function. The topic was the central theme of Griliches' research agenda during the 70s. Griliches played a major role in the ability- schooling controversy of the time. He was instrumental in repelling the attack of the revisionists' on the Theory of Human Capital, and the claim that the schooling effect in the earning function is merely an artifact of the true ability' and family background' effects. Griliches lacked at the time the proper data to prove unequivocally that the ability bias plays only a minor role in the estimation of the rate of return to schooling. He was, however, able to show that the seemingly foolproof evidence of his opponents suffers from serious biases due to the endogeneity and the measurement errors in the schooling variable. His assertion that the standard OLS estimator is biased downward, rather than upward, has been shown true by future research.

Environmental remediation technologies to control or prevent pollution from hazardous waste material is a growing research area in academia and industry, and is a matter of utmost concern to public health, to improve ecology and to facilitate the redevelopment of a contaminated site. Recently, in situ and ex situ remediation technologies have been developed to rectify the contaminated sites, utilizing various tools and devices through physical, chemical, biological, electrical, and thermal processes to restrain, remove, extract, and immobilize mechanisms to minimize the contamination effects. This handbook brings altogether classical and emerging techniques for hazardous wastes, municipal solid wastes and contaminated water sites, combining chemical, biological and engineering control methods to provide a one-stop reference. This handbook presents a comprehensive and thorough description of several remediation techniques for contaminated sites resulting from both natural processes and anthropogenic activities. Providing critical insights into a range of treatments from chemical oxidation, thermal treatment, air sparging, electrokinetic remediation, stabilization/solidification, permeable reactive barriers, thermal desorption and incineration, phytoremediation, biostimulation and bioaugmentation, bioventing and biosparging through ultrasound-assisted remediation methods, electrochemical remediation methods, and nanoremediation, this handbook provides the reader an inclusive and detailed overview and then discusses future research directions. Closing chapters on green sustainable remediation, economics, health and safety issues, and environmental regulations around site remediation will make this a must-have handbook for those working in the field.
