Trash Can Days
Jake Schwartz is not looking forward to middle school. Puberty feels light years away, he's not keen on the cool clothes or lingo, and he has the added pressure of preparing for his bar mitzvah. The only saving grace is that Danny Uribe, his lifelong best friend, will be by his side. . . .
Or will he? Since Danny's summer growth spurt, there's been a growing distance between him and Jake. Dannyis excited to explore all that junior high has to offer-especially the girls (and most notably Hannah, Jake's older sister). But gang life has its allure, and he soon finds himself in over his head.
Meanwhile, Hannah is dealing with her own problems; being queen bee is not easy. The other girls are out for blood, and boys are so. . .exhausting. Danny surprises her with his maturity, but can her reputation survive if she's linked to a sevvy? And what would Jake think about his sister hooking up with his best friend?
Dorothy Wu could not care less about junior high drama. She is content staying in her bedroom and writing epic stories of her adventures as a warrior mermaid maiden. But that changes when she discovers the school's writing club. There, she meets a young lad with heroic potential and decides that life outside of her fantasy world just might have some appeal.
Ultrashort Laser Pulse Phenomena
Ultrashort Laser Pulse Phenomena serves as an introduction to the phenomena of ultrashort laser pulses and describes how this technology can be applied in areas such as spectroscopy, medical imaging, electromagnetism, optics, and quantum physics. Combining the principles with experimental techniques, the book serves as a guide to designing and constructing femtosecond systems.
The second edition has updated and expanded its content, and includes more examples of ultrashort sources and a more comprehensive fundamentals chapter. Diagnostic techniques and applications involving sensors, mode-locked lasers, and imaging have been fully revised to include current technologies.
Written in a tutorial style, this book is suitable for senior undergraduate and graduate students as well as engineers and scientists working in the areas of optics, spectroscopy, optical imaging, photochemistry, and ultrafast science and engineering.
*Provides an easy to follow guide through "faster than electronics" probing and detection methods
*THE manual on designing and constructing femtosecond systems and experiments
*Discusses essential technology for applications in micro-machining, femtochemistry, and medical imaging
An extraordinary inside account of what it's like growing up in a hoarder's house.
'To start: it was just me and my mom. I am an only child, and she is a single parent. My mother is a trash hoarder. Ever since I can remember the house was always messy and stunk. At around age 9ish I noticed that something was wrong. My friends' houses didn't look like mine, and I wasn't allowed to have friends over for a slumber party. I started throwing bags of trash away every day, just to have my mom freak out when she got home: "Where did those papers go? There was a coupon in there for _____" or "Why did you throw those away? We can still use those," referring to stained/moth-eaten cloth scraps. I was trying to clean her room one day, and found newspapers from before I was born. We didn't eat at home anymore because the fridge was disgusting, and she used the sink as a trash can, so it got clogged. We always ate out, we never had a home-cooked meal, and I've never had a family dinner at a dinner table.
To top things off my mom was morbidly obese (400+ lbs), she liked being naked around the house, and she was a bed wetter. She liked sitting on our leather couch naked. I stopped sitting on it years before I left; I had a stool in the corner of the living room. That is what I sat on, and that alone. I kept that corner as clean as I could. Made sure there was foot space, and that there wasn't dust on the walls. That was my corner, my space.
It never seemed to matter though, eventually that spot would get overrun with trash too...'
