The scientific impulse can be said to have existed forever. But only with the written word did there emerge a record of speculations about how and why things happen. Middle Eastern civilizations developed ways to measure and describe (e.g., math and the alphabet); Greek philosophers classified natural objects and studied cause and effect. This is the story of ancient science from Asia to the Mediterranean Basin. The Science and Discovery series recreates history´s 4,000-year journey to better understand the world through scientific means. It is a story of vested interests and independent thinkers, experiments and theories, change and progress. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Edwin Newman.

The environment is an amazing gift of nature to the mankind. It consists of many small and big organisms, which reside together in this environment. They follow a proper food chain and live together. In past few decades, after the development of mankind and the different techniques, humans have developed in every field. This development is a positive aspect, but there came a time when these different aspects of development have harmed the environment. There are many adverse effects of the human deeds on the environment, and humans are continuously exploiting the natural resources of the Earth. This exploitation has led to the depletion of natural resources such as coal, iron, minerals, oils, etc. To understand the fact that environment and its components are precious, a thorough discussion is done here. This will provide a basic idea of the environment, the environmental science, and the ways by which environment can be saved. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrea Giordani.

If the planet Krypton had a gravitational field strong enough to account for Superman´s amazing strength, would it be possible to launch a rocket ship from the planet´s surface? Assuming that the Flash could actually travel at the speed of light, would any villain ever stand a chance against him? Could evolution actually produce X-Men? The Science of Superheroes takes a lighthearted but clearheaded look at the real science behind some of the greatest superhero comic books of all time, including Spider-Man, Batman, the Fantastic Four, and many more. Each chapter presents the origin of one or more superheroes and asks intriguing questions that lead to fascinating discussions about the limits of science, the laws of nature, and the future of technology. If gamma rays can´t turn a 128-pound weakling into the Incredible Hulk, what could? Are Spider-Man´s powers really those of a spider? Could a person ever breathe water like a fish? From telepathy to teleportation, from cloning to cosmic rays, this vastly entertaining romp through the nexus of science and fantasy separates the possible from the plausible and the barely plausible from the utterly ridiculous. You´ll discover the connection between black holes and green lanterns; what Galileo could have told Professor Pym about the stresses caused by shrinking and growing; and how many of Batman´s ´´inventions´´ anticipated actual technological developments. You´ll learn how comic book writers use ´´technobabble´´ to create seemingly credible explanations of improbable superpowers and bizarre events. The Science of Superheroes celebrates the ingenuity and imagination of the writers and artists behind the greatest superheroes, and offers helpful suggestions on how some characters´ origin stories could be made more believable. It offers immensely enjoyable and informative listening for anyone who loves science, superheroes, or both. The Science of Superheroes is also ava... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Oliver Wyman.

Though medical science began with the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates, dissection and the study of the human body was prohibited for religious reasons until the Renaissance. Only in 1628 did William Harvey theorize that blood circulates in the body; germs weren´t discovered until the 19th century. Since then, surgery and drugs have greatly reduced deaths and pain from accident and disease. Genetic research and biotechnology hold the promise of even greater advances in the 21st century. The Science and Discovery series recreates one of history´s most successful journeys: 4,000 years of scientific efforts to better understand and control the physical world. Science has often challenged and upset conventional wisdom or accepted practices; this is a story of vested interests and independent thinkers, experiments and theories, change and progress. Aristotle, Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Newton, Darwin, Einstein, and many others are featured. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Edwin Newman.

A revealing and provocative look at the current state of global science. We take the advance of science as given. But how does science really work? Is it truly as healthy as we tend to think? How does the system itself shape what scientists do? The Secret Life of Science takes a clear-eyed and provocative look at the current state of global science, shedding light on a cutthroat and tightly tensioned enterprise that even scientists themselves often don´t fully understand. The Secret Life of Science is a dispatch from the frontlines of modern science. It paints a startling picture of a complex scientific ecosystem that has become the most competitive free-market environment on the planet. It reveals how big this ecosystem really is, what motivates its participants, and who reaps the rewards. Are there too few scientists in the world or too many? Are some fields expanding at the expense of others? What science is shared or published, and who determines what the public gets to hear about? What is the future of science? Answering these and other questions, this controversial audiobook explains why globalization is not necessarily good for science, nor is the continued growth in the number of scientists. It portrays a scientific community engaged in a race for limited resources that determines whether careers are lost or won, whose research visions become the mainstream, and whose vested interests end up in control. The Secret Life of Science explains why this hypercompetitive environment is stifling the diversity of research and the resiliency of science itself and why new ideas are needed to ensure the scientific enterprise remains healthy and vibrant.

From everyday stress to severe trauma, many obstacles to a full life can be overcome by developing what Dr. Daniel J. Siegel calls ´´mindsight,´´ our ability to perceive the mind and literally redirect the flow of energy and information within our brains. Through this powerful capacity for insight and empathy, we can ´´rewire´´ crucial connections, create dynamic linkages, and open ourselves to relationships in a new way. Based on thirty years of work with patients and on research drawn from nearly a dozen scientific fields, Mindsight brings these concepts alive through vivid case histories that show what happens when mindsight is missing, and how it can be strengthened in nine essential areas. Listeners of My Stroke of Insight or The Brain that Changes Itself will discover new ideas about memory, emotion, trauma and brain-mind integration - plus a richer sense of their own humanity. 1.
