A new voice in comics is incisive, funny, and fiercely feminist. ´´The mental load. It´s incessant, gnawing, exhausting, and disproportionately falls to women. You know the scene--you´re making dinner, calling the plumber/doctor/mechanic, checking homework and answering work emails--at the same time. All the while, you are being peppered with questions by your nearest and dearest ´where are my shoes?, ´do we have any cheese?...´´´ --Australian Broadcasting Corp on Emma´s comic In her first book of comic strips, Emma reflects on social and feminist issues by means of simple line drawings, dissecting the mental load, ie all that invisible and unpaid organizing, list-making and planning women do to manage their lives, and the lives of their family members. Most of us carry some form of mental load--about our work, household responsibilities, financial obligations and personal life; but what makes up that burden and how it´s distributed within households and understood in offices is not always equal or fair. In her strips Emma deals with themes ranging from maternity leave (it is not a vacation!), domestic violence, the clitoris, the violence of the medical world on women during childbirth, and other feminist issues, and she does so in a straightforward way that is both hilarious and deadly serious.. If you´re not laughing, you´re probably crying in recognition. Emma´s comics also address the everyday outrages and absurdities of immigrant rights, income equality, and police violence. Emma has over 300,000 followers on Facebook, her comics have been. shared 215,000 times, and have elicited comments from 21,000 internet users. An article about her in the French magazine L´Express drew 1.8 million views--a record since the site was created. And her comic has just been picked up by The Guardian. Many women will recognize themselves in THE MENTAL LOAD, which is sure to stir a wide ranging, important debate on what it really means to be a woman today.
This book will be useful to students and designer of air conditioning system as calculation of cooling load used to design the air conditioning system and finding the capacity of the air conditioner. The cooling load calculation is necessary because of no one wants a system that is too small because then it won´t be able to provide the cool air you need. A system that is too large will cool the air too quickly, disabling it from properly dehumidifying your home. This will leave your living spaces feeling cool and clammy.
The term composite can be defined as a combination of two or more dissimilar materials having a distinct interface between them such that the prosperities of the resulting material are superior to the individual constituent components. A composite laminate is two or more laminae bonded together to act as an integral structural element. Laminae principal material directions are oriented to produce a structural element capable of resisting load in several directions. From the analysis it is found that as the number of layers of a laminate increases in a given thickness, the strength of the laminate increases. It is also found that the location and angles of the principle material direction effect the strength of rectangular laminate, but it is not affecting the strength of a square laminate plate. On the application of the lateral load the outside laminae are subjected to higher stress than inner laminae and first ply failure occurs in outside laminae then to inside laminae.
Nach seiner Verhaftung lautet das Urteil für Taschendieb Jake Dokins: Verbannung - ans Ende der Welt. In den Kolonien von New South Wales bei Sydney soll er die nächsten 17 Jahre schuften. Zur gleichen Zeit geraten sein alter Freund Oliver Twist und dessen neue Bekannte Hannah Shuller durch einige unglückliche Zufälle in Sydneys Armenhaus. Gemeinsam mit einem Jungen namens Whil gelingt es Jake sich zu befreien und Oliver und Hannah aus den Fängen der Behörden zu retten. Fürs Erste beschließen die vier Kinder zusammenzubleiben. Sie kommen in einem alten Theater unter. Doch um zu überleben, müssen sie stehlen gehen. Für Jake heißt das: zurück auf die Straße. Aber dann taucht Kelly auf, die ihm mit ihrer Gang von Kinderdieben gehörig Konkurenz macht.
Loadbearing systems are the basis of any structure. In order to provide architecture students with an easily understandable introduction to the field of supporting structures, this volume begins with the fundamentals of loads and forces and then moves on to building components and finally to loadbearing systems, together with their characteristic attributes. Subjects: Loads; Forces; Structural building components; Supporting structures and systems; Presizing. Tragsysteme sind Grundlage jedes Bauwerks. Um Architekturstudenten das Fachgebiet Tragkonstruktion verständlich zu vermitteln, werden zunächst die Grundlagen zu Lasten und Kräften erläutert, um darauf aufbauend Bauteile und im Weiteren verschiedene Tragsysteme vorzustellen und mit ihren typischen Eigenschaften zu verdeutlichen. Themen: Lasten Kräfte Tragkonstruktive Bauteile Tragwerke und -systeme Vorbemessung
