First published in 1980, Transitions was the first book to explore the underlying and universal pattern of transition. Recently named one of the 50 most important self-help books of all time, Transitions remains the essential guide for coping with the inevitable changes in life. Transitions takes listeners step-by-step through the three perilous stages of any life passage, explaining how each stage can be understood and embraced. Offering an elegantly simple yet profoundly insightful roadmap for successfully navigating change and moving into a hopeful future, the process is ever relevant and applicable today. Among the subjects covered: Endings. Every transition begins with one. Too often we misunderstand them, confuse them with finality: "That's it, all over, finished!" Yet how we recognize endings is key to how we can begin anew. The Neutral Zone. The second hurdle of transitions: a seemingly unproductive "time-out" when we feel disconnected from people and things in the past and emotionally unconnected to the present. Yet the neutral zone is really a time of reorientation. How can we make the most of it? The New Beginning. In transitions, we come to beginnings only at the end, when we launch new activities. To make a successful new beginning requires more than simply persevering. It requires an understanding of external signs and inner signals that point the way to the future. 1. Language: English.

Everything you need to know about the craft of the wise. Witchcraft is a vibrant, nature-based spiritual practice that is alive and well in our modern times, just as it has been throughout history. It’s also an enormous topic that can be overwhelming for those who are just starting to explore it. There’s so much to learn, and there are many differing perspectives on what is "correct" or "incorrect" in terms of knowledge and practice. Truly, it may be the one of the most confounding of all forms of spirituality! Modern Witchcraft and Magic for Beginners, by best-selling author Lisa Chamberlain, was created to provide a fact-based, neutral orientation to launch you on your quest for knowledge. Whether you choose to call yourself a Witch, a Wiccan, both, or neither, this audiobook will help you navigate the various opinions, definitions, and perspectives you’ll find in the wide, wide world of the Craft. You’ll find: An overview of the historical and cultural contexts in which contemporary Witchcraft has evolved A debunking of common misconceptions about Witchcraft as it is practiced today Core beliefs and practices found among a variety of forms of the Craft Clear distinctions between Wiccan, Traditional, and Eclectic paths Core concepts underlying the "why" and "how" of magic A brief look at a few common magical techniques - visualization, invocation, and candle magic Some example workings for you to try, if you feel so inclined Suggested references for those who want to explore these topics further Whether your curiosity about the Craft is intellectual, spiritual, or both, you’ll find plenty of useful information in Modern Witchcraft and Magic for Beginners. If you're ready to explore this fascinating realm, listen to this audiobook! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kris Keppeler.

Is it possible to test the impact of commercial likeability on short-term brand equity and recall, and therefore test commercials pre-launch on their effectiveness? Prior research shows that it is hard to measure brand equity and recall by observing the commercial likeability, as outcomes differ significantly. A model to test commercials pre- launch is, however, still desirable as even minor refinements can have a definite impact on a campaigns effectiveness. Following traditional and tested methods, this study develops a model to pre- test commercials before being launched on television. This study further emphasizes that companies should make use of different commercial likeability. As annoying, neutral and appealing commercials all result in a different outcome, companies can choose which commercial to use depending their purpose.
The Imager for Magnetopause-to-Aurora Global Exploration (IMAGE) is a NASA Explorer mission that is the first space mission dedicated to imaging of the Earth's magnetosphere. IMAGE was launched from Vandenberg AFB into an elliptical polar orbit by a Delta II launch vehicle on March 25, 2000. The two-year prime sci entific mission of IMAGE began on May 25, 2000 after instrument commissioning was successfully completed. IMAGE has now been approved for operation until October 1,2005, and an additional two-year extension is now being considered by NASA. The papers in this volume represent many of the scientific results obtained dur ing the IMAGE prime mission and include some of the early correlative research with ground-based measurements, measurements from other spacecraft such as Cluster II, and relevant theory and modeling programs. All of the reported work is related to the overall IMAGE science objective: How does the magnetosphere respond globally to the changing conditions in the solar wind? IMAGE addresses this question with multi-spectral imaging of most of the important plasma pop ulations of the inner magnetosphere, combined with radio sounding of gradients of total plasma content. The new experimental techniques fall into the following areas: neutral atom imaging (NAI) over an energy range from 10 eV to 500 keY for detection of ionospheric outflow, the plasma sheet, and the ring current; far ultraviolet (FUV) imaging at 121-190 nm for detection of precipitating protons and the global aurora; extreme ultraviolet (EUV) imaging at 30.
The 19th ESLAB Symposium on 'The Sun and the Heliosphere in Three Dimensions' was held in Les Diablerets (Switzerland) on 4-6 June 1985. Organised almost exactly ten years after the Goddard Space Fl i ght Center Sympos i um dea 1 i ng with the Sun and the i nterp 1 anetary medium in three dimensions, the aim of this Symposium was not only to review the progress made in understanding the three-dimensional structure and dynamics of the heliosphere, but also to look ahead to the scientific return to be expected from the Ulysses mission. Scheduled for launch in May 1986, the scientific instrumentation on board Ulysses will shed light on the conditions and processes occurring away from the ecliptic plane, thereby adding literally a new dimension to our understanding of the only stellar plasmasphere to which we have direct access. The scientific programme of the Symposium was built around a series of invited review papers dealing with aspects of the corona and its influence on the interplanetary medium via transient ejecta, the solar wind, energetic solar particles and galactic cosmic rays, interplanetary dust and neutral gas. These invited talks were supplemented by a number of contributed and poster papers. With the exception of three contributed talks and Wibberenz' review of coronal and acceleration of energetic particles, all papers propagation presented at the Symposium are included in this volume.
In the summer of 2000 the German geo-research satellite CHAMP was launched into orbit. Its innovative payload arrangement and the low initial orbit allow CHAMP to simultaneously collect and almost continuously analyse precise data relating to gravity and magnetic fields at low altitude. In addition, CHAMP also measures the neutral atmosphere and ionosphere using GPS techniques. Three years after launch, more than 200 CHAMP investigators and co-investigators from all over the world met at the GeoForschungsZentrum in Potsdam to present and discuss the results derived from the extensive data sets of the mission. The main outcome of this expert meeting is summarized in this volume. The book offers a comprehensive insight into the present status of the exploitation of CHAMP data for Earth system research and practical applications in geodesy, geophysics and meteorology.

On 12 April 1961 Yuri Gagarin became the first man to orbit the Earth. One month later, President John F. Kennedy challenged the American nation to land a man on the Moon before the decade was out. On 16 July 1969, Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin set off in Apollo 11 to attempt this audacious mission, and succeeded magnificently. This book tells the story of Apollo 11, starting with crew selection and training, the choice of the landing site, and the assembly of the space vehicle, then a detailed account of the mission, featuring the lunar landing and moonwalk, and a review of how our knowledge of the Moon's history was revolutionised as a result. The story is enlivened by dialogue between the astronauts in space and the flight controllers in Mission Control. TOC:Part I.
