The Angels Weep is the third best-selling book in Wilbur Smith's Ballantyne Novels - an epic exploration into the dark past of colonial Africa. At the dawn of a new century, the pioneers of Rhodesia have staked their claims and stocked their farms in the land they have carved as their own. But in the hills, the Matabele indunas are preparing for the bloody rebellion which will scar the opponents for ever - and etch for them the same tragic legacy for generations to come.... The dramatic story of the Ballantynes concludes in The Leopard Hunts in Darkness. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elliot Chapman.

Comebacks and flip flops - historical and contemporary - that capture the current era of snarky humor. It’s impossible to go a full day without using snark, so why fight it? Snark is everywhere, from television to movies to everyday life. This lively collection provides hours of entertainment - better than an Etch A Sketch, and more fun than Silly Putty! At the heart of it, being in a state of snark can be one of the most useful tools at one’s disposal and hence (yes, I used “hence”), a powerful way to get what you want. With snark, you can catch people completely off-guard, and royally piss them off. Included here is the Snark Hall of Fame, the Best Snarky Responses to Everyday Dumbassness, and much more. It’s a book that will make you laugh. It’s a book that will make someone else cry. It’s a book every student of the American psyche (that’s all of us, Sparky) needs to have. Let loose. Let your inner anger become a positive rather than a negative, but most of all, have fun. (Yeah, like that’s something you know how to do.) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bernard Setaro Clark.

This book evaluated the shear bond strength of zirconia bonded to dentin specimens using a self etch dual cure resin cement after various surface treatments of zirconia. Twenty zirconia rods (3 9 2.5 mm) were prepared from zirconia blocks and assigned into 5 groups for the following surface treatments. (1) Group I: Control (C) no treatment (2) Group II: airborne-particle abrasion (APA),(3) Group III: hydrofluoric acid etching (HF), (4) Group IV: hydrofluoric acid etching followed by silanation (HF/S), and (5) Group V: application of zirconia primer(Z). Dentin Specimens were prepared from extracted molars stored in 0.5% chloramine-T. Zirconia rods were bonded to dentin using resin cement (Multilink Speed),then light polymerized. The specimens tested for failure were tested using the notched shear bond test method in a universal loading apparatus. One way ANOVA followed by Tukey HSD for cell means were used to analyze the data(=0.05). The highest values were obtained with group V (Z) (8.66 MPa) followed by group II (APA) (6.71 MPa), and group IV (HF/S) (4.41 MPa). The least values were obtained for group III (HF) (3.88 MPa) with no significant difference (P value 0.53) between group.
The technological challenges have reached the micron and nano range. One technique to fabricate structures in this range is sputtering, particularly focused ion beam (FIB) milling. The need to understand significance of sputtering is based on the various applications of sputtering for structuring in technology. A great advantage of focused ion beam milling compared to other etch processes is the possibility to structure work materials which have a complex geometrical features. Moreover, the sputtering does not produce any thermal damage to the work material. The applications of FIB milling that have yet to be realized are endless. The motivation to write a book in the area of FIB milling was gained by observing the superiority of FIB milling process over the other contemporary processes. The materials to be fabricated by FIB milling has never pose a limitation. Though the different materials have been fabricated by FIB milling, some materials still require intensive research from the machinability point of view. In this book, the focus has been made on the machinability aspects of the materials which are useful in fabrication of microtools, micro surgical manipulators, etc.
