When civilization needs someone to run generating stations three kilometres below the surface of the Pacific, it seeks out a special sort of person for its Rifters program. It recruits those whose histories have pre-adapted them to dangerous environments, people so used to broken bodies and chronic stress that life on the edge of an undersea volcano would actually be a step up. Nobody worries too much about job satisfaction; if you haven't spent a lifetime learning the futility of fighting back, you wouldn't be a rifter in the first place. It's a small price to keep the lights going, back on shore.But there are things among the cliffs and trenches of the Juan de Fuca Ridge that no one expected to find ...

SELECTED ESSAYS

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. These facts few psychologists will dispute, and their admitted truth must establish for all time the genuineness and dignity of the weirdly horrible tale as a literary form. Against it are discharged all the shafts of a materialistic sophistication which clings to frequently felt emotions and external events, and of a naïvely insipid idealism which deprecates the æsthetic motive and calls for a didactic literature to "uplift" the reader toward a suitable degree of smirking optimism. But in spite of all this opposition the weird tale has survived, developed, and attained remarkable heights of perfection; founded as

ذاكرة ميت

لأنها لو فعلت تحولت إلى بيوت، وصارت أقل فخامة من البيوت التى نقطنها.. نحن نشعر بأن المكان لنا، عندما نحشر فى أحد زوايا خزانته كيساً ما.. أو عندما نضع الحذاء تحت الطاولة أو نرتب أشياءنا الصغيرة كمقص الأظافر مثلاً فى أماكن غريبة.. عندما تضعين الكتاب تحت مخدتك وأنت توقنين أنك لن تضطرى لتبديل مكانه غداً عندما تغادرين الغرفة.. فالمكان باق وكل شيء محتفظ بذاكرته.

Keto-Adaptation and Endurance Exercise Capacity, Fatigue Recovery, and Exercise-Induced Muscle

A ketogenic diet (KD) could induce nutritional ketosis. Over time, the body will acclimate to use ketone bodies as a primary fuel to achieve keto-adaptation. Keto-adaptation may provide a consistent and fast energy supply, thus improving exercise performance and capacity. With its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties, a KD may contribute to muscle health, thus preventing exercise-induced fatigue and damage. Given the solid basis of its potential to improve exercise capacity, numerous investigations into KD and exercise have been carried out in recent years. This narrative review aims to summarize recent research about the potential of a KD as a nutritional approach during endurance exercise, focusing on endurance capacity, recovery from fatigue, and the prevention of exhaustive exercise-induced muscle and organ damage.

Energy Return on Investment (EROI) of Brazilian Coal Production

The rapid growth in energy demand globally sets the need for studies that evaluate the capacity of a fuel to provide an energy surplus after accounting for all the energy needed to make it available for society. The energy indicator known as energy return on investment (EROI) has been widely used for that purpose, analyzing both renewable and non-renewable fuels ability to provide useful energy. However, there are no study which estimate the EROI for Brazilian fossil fuel production. In this sense, the goal of this study is to calculate the EROI for Brazilian coal production, analyzing how much surplus energy this fuel yield after accounting the energy necessary to its extraction, processing and transportation. The results show that the EROI value highly depends on the data source, with values ranging from 30 to 57 for the Santa Catarina States’ coal production and going as high as 115 for the Rio Grande do Sul States’ coal production. LCA software SimaPro was also used as a way to estimate the EROI for Brazilian coal production due to its extensive database. Results from both methods are in agreement when considering only the extraction and processing steps, but diverge when the transportation energy costs are added. Differences in the transportation process are the probable cause for the discrepancies in the EROI value. Despite this difference, both methods show that the Brazilian coal is a net energy source.
