Graveyard Blues the shift moment when the future begins
From midnight to 0200 are the hours that the streets are usually still moving with the bright headlights, from mostly cars flashing in the one direction and the red taillights flashing about in the other direction, giving the darkness an eerie and sometimes grotesque mingling of flashing multi-colored neon lights of businesses with the haze of streetlights. The excitement of the night to come is highlighted with the manmade Aurora Borealis of dancing hews. At 2 a.m. the bars close down, therefore, the restaurant's alcohol drinks stop flowing. Now the streets are less filled with the kind of traffic that started that morning. Most of the business lights are dimmer, but not all. Mixed with a small amount of employees returning home from their late night shift are the cars returning from the bars. When graveyard begins and when the day darkens, many peace officers fall or are killed in the course of their job to protect the public while you are in your home safe. The hunt begins for criminals and we find them with handguns, knives, and all kinds of weapons. This is the time the drug addict's dope is taken. This book describes the danger for the officer when he must solve the problems before he leaves to handle another call. The reader will understand when darkness arrives; the danger increases. It is a lonely shift as the deputy slowly drives his patrol until while looking for criminal activity in his area. Now the cat and mouse game begins as he is fighting fatigue and trying t...

Nativist Notions the shift moment when the future begins
This is an analysis of flank and shift effects in political sociology that focuses on migrant parties in eight European countries. In a positive radical flank effect the radical party makes the moderate and mildly-threatening parties look good. In turn, that moderate party then gains power or at least many of their ends. A negative radical flank effect occurs when the actual or perceived association of the moderate party with the radical party causes the moderate party to lose support. Radical shift effects are when the moderate or conservative party shifts its policy toward the radical direction. In this case, the radical party may become a coalition partner with the moderate or conservative party. And conservative or moderate shift is when the radical party shifts its policy toward a more moderate direction in order to assume power or court votes.

Time Travel: A History the shift moment when the future begins
From the acclaimed author of The Information and Chaos, here is a mind-bending exploration of time travel: its subversive origins, its evolution in literature and science, and its influence on our understanding of time itself. The story begins at the turn of the previous century, with the young H. G. Wells writing and rewriting the fantastic tale that became his first book and an international sensation: The Time Machine. It was an era when a host of forces were converging to transmute the human understanding of time, some philosophical and some technological: the electric telegraph, the steam railroad, the discovery of buried civilisations, and the perfection of clocks. James Gleick tracks the evolution of time travel as an idea that becomes part of contemporary culture - from Marcel Proust to Doctor Who, from Jorge Luis Borges to Woody Allen. He investigates the inevitable looping paradoxes and examines the porous boundary between pulp fiction and modern physics. Finally, he delves into a temporal shift that is unsettling our own moment: the instantaneous wired world, with its all-consuming present and vanishing future.

Nature's Shift the shift moment when the future begins
In the not-so-distant future, when biology is changing the human form and structure, Peter Bell the Third renews his friendship with Rowland Usher. In the new House of Usher that Rowland is creating in the Orinoco Delta, Usher is conducting experiments in genetics. Rowland's twin sister, Magdalen, who has committed suicide for reasons that no one understands, suddenly begins "haunting" the house. But this can be no supernatural apparition, no manifestation of the "afterlife." So what then has Magdalen become--if indeed this "ghost" is really her? A marvelous new novel in this long-running series by a master of biological extrapolation.

The Future University the shift moment when the future begins
The model of the Future University presented in this book is one stemming from a Corporate, Virtual and Global discourse. Each of these themes is examined and modelled in detail before the implications are drawn out for the future student and future academic. Futures methodology is employed to make the case for change, and the discourses are mapped in terms of dominant discourses, emerging discourses and a preferred, normative futures discourse. The book questions the concept of the ''idea'' of a university, and also asks the question ''better for whom'' when considering a normative future discourse.

Coherent control of the Goos-Hanchen shift the shift moment when the future begins
This book contains all the information about a coherent control of the lateral shift or Goos-Hanchen shift. The coherent control of the Goos-Ha?nchen shift has been investigated when a probe light is incident on a cavity which contains dispersive atomic medium. We consider different atom-field configurations for the intracavity atomic medium, i.e., electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT), Raman gain process and double Lamda (duplicated two-level). The sub- and super-luminal pulse propagation which correspond to normal and anomalous dispersion, respectively, through a dispersive atomic medium can be coherently controlled without changing the structure. This is due to the manipulation of group index of the dispersive atomic medium via different parameters associated with the driving fields, i.e., intensity, detuning and phase shift.
