"Rock Mass Classifications - A Practical Approach in Civil Engineering" was written in response to the many unanswered questions regarding this subject. Questions such as - Is Classification reasonably reliable? Can it be successful in crisis management of geohazards? Can a single Classification system be general for all rock structures? Is Classification a scientific approach? Laborious field research was undertaken in the Himalayan mountains by a team of scientists from the Central Mining Research Institute (CMRI), University of Roorkee (UOR), Central Soil and Material Research Station (CSMRS), U.P. Irrigation Research Institute (UPIRI), and Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI) to answer these questions. The results obtained from the research work were systematically compiled to produce this book which bears particular relevance to civil, mining and petroleum engineers and geologists.
A love story for the ages. After seventy years of married bliss, Eli and Ellie Ragsdale adore each other more with each passing day. But Father Time has been tapping their shoulders. Bound by a timeless, unconditional love for one another, the Ragsdales cling to life's final days. We slip into their privacy to peek in on those quiet moments they share, their hobbies and throng of chatty friends when unexpected events open a door to one of life's unanswered questions: When it's over, what's next? In rapid succession, Ellie's health deteriorates. Peaceful routines are disrupted. Estranged adult children remain distant. Simple tasks impossible. Exhaustion. And a mysterious rock. A touching story about more than just love for another. For those who surround us. For family and God. Much more

The early years of a Scottish Demonologist. First demonic cases. Studying in Rome.
Significant advances have been made in non-explosive rock breaking techniques in the past two decades. This monograph focuses specifically on environmental-friendly rock excavating using chemical, thermal, hydraulic, electric and hybrid systems. For the first time, a comprehensive overview of the theoretical concepts and state-of-the-art practical developments has been compiled and presented based on these emerging techniques.
