Growing up in Mississippi in the forties, fifties and sixties, Britton Mosley, Sr. became accustomed to terrorism because of the color of his skin. But, as a native citizen of the United States in the nineteen century, never would he have imagined that terrorism would come from law enforcement and political figures right here in these United States of America. There is a new generation of terrorism in Mississippi that state and local government support-wrongful convictions based on fabricated evidence. While working as a correctional officer at South Mississippi Correctional Institute in Leakesville, Mississippi, Britton Mosley, Sr. saw firsthand the disproportionate incarceration of people of color for petty, non violent offenses. He also was an eyewitness to the mental and physical barbaric brutality against prison inmates. Being an advocate of human rights and inmate rehabilitation, he spoke out against such abuse, and became the target of retaliation from high-ranking prison officials and fellow coworkers in the form of two attempted drug set-ups. In "Fabricating Evidence: Drug Set-up/Cover-up of a Correctional Whistleblower" you will experience the injustice endured by Britton Mosley, Sr., and the emotional toll it took on him. Read the compelling evidence, the fabrication of evidence and the blackballing of an upstanding, law-abiding citizen who only wanted to do his job.
The book states that in the last quarter of the twentieth century, a new class of materials called Geo-synthetics emerged which led to significant revolution in the design of geotechnical and geo-environmental systems. Geotextiles extend the service life of roads, increase their load carrying capacity and reduce rutting and other distresses. The effectiveness of geotextiles in stabilization and separation roles with flexible pavements has been extensively researched.
Recognizing the vast potentiality of this developed Bituminized Jute Paving Fabric (BJPF) as overlay on existing pavements to reinforce and partially substitute the bitumen mastic, a strong desire of sharing the findings stimulated by the author to write this comprehensive technical handbook. The author firmly believes that this book will at least partially fulfill the requirements of the interested engineering students and practicing engineers and may prompt them to delve deeper into the subject to explore new avenues for its use and to refine the existing design methodologies.
Highly Commended at the BMA Book Awards 2013
Extreme Tissue Engineering is an engaging introduction to Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (TERM), allowing the reader to understand, discern and place into context the mass of scientific, multi-disciplinary data currently flooding the field.Â It is designed to provide interdisciplinary, ground-up explanations in a digestible, entertaining way, creating a text which is relevant to all students of TERM regardless of their route into the field.
Organised into three main sections: chapters 1 to 3 introduce and explain the general problems;Â chapters 4 to 6 identify and refine how the main factors interact to create the problems and opportunities we know all too well; chapters 7 to 9 argue us through the ways we can use leading-edge (extreme) concepts to build our advanced solutions.
Students and researchers in areas such as stem cell and developmental biology, tissue repair, implantology and surgical sciences, biomaterials sciences and nanobiomedicine, bioengineering, bio-processing and monitoring technologies - from undergraduate and masters to doctoral and post-doctoral research levels - will find Extreme Tissue Engineering a stimulating and inspiring text.
Written in a fluid, entertaining style, Extreme Tissue Engineering is introductory yet challenging, richly illustrated and truly interdisciplinary.
