Breeds of Beef Cattle

Description: "The question most frequently asked about cattle usually pertains to the breed which should be used in a certain community or under certain conditions. All breeds are not similar; some have superior points to others, and a certain breed may be better suited to conditions existing in one locality or one State than any other breed. For this reason it is well to find out which breed is best suited to local conditions, and to induce as many farmers as possible to raise that breed, because of the better prices which maybe secured from the sale of a uniform product and the ease with which suitable breeding stock may be obtained near home. Some information is presented herewith which will help to answer some of the questions which arise as to the value of the various breeds of cattle." -- title page

Brochure for the Dekker Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, 2nd edition, 6 volumes set

Description: Brochure for the second edition where the preface states: The science of the ultra small nanoscience has dramatically exploded during the last few years, and the technologies operating with ultra small things the nanotechnologies acquired quickly a firm position in today s world of business, technological development, and public perception. Several factors contributed to the acceleration of scientific knowledge and technological progress in the last decades, among which the rapid development of fast computers, availability of high-resolution analytical techniques, and the progress of molecular biology and genetics are probably the most important. The result was an unprecedented expansion of the frontiers of science, which empowered the human genius with unlimited options of top-down and bottom-up methods for manipulation of materials structure and control of properties at multiple levels, from atomic to molecular, supramolecular, and biomolecular. Already a distinctive mark of 21st century, nanoscience and nanotechnology will certainly have a steadily increasing influence on the quality of life and the environment of this Planet for centuries to come.
