The fourth addition to the
Ponderables series, Physics: An Illustrated History of the Foundations Science follows famous scientists and other experts through the ages as they unravel the fabric of the universe to reveal the array of fundamental forces, intangible articles, and indestructible energy that make up one of our core scientific studies. Filled with glorious color photos, imagery and diagrams, this authoritative volume even includes a simple physics guide and timeline that add new context to the fresh mysteries such as Higgs Boson, supersymmetry, and dark energy. Biographies of the great physicists plus 100 chronological articles on the history of physics build on the popular
Who did what when?
In a world where technology and science have become familiar and exciting subjects, Physics finally lays wide open one of science s more mystifying facets, the knowledge without which everything else from astronomy to zoology would simply be meaningless conjecture.
There is a history of humankind, a deep account of the rising and falling of human cultures, to be written around the simple fact that food rots. It’s one of those problems so deep in human history and so intrinsic to human experience that, admittedly, we hardly notice it anymore. But from the days of Cain (who was, you remember, both the first murderer and the first city builder in the Bible) all the way down to our own time, the problem of keeping food fresh has been a ceaseless motor of culture—like the noise of the... Think of it this way: The first question of early human existence is “What will we eat today. Chilled , the recent book by Tom Jackson, tries to tell this story by tracing the history of refrigeration, the attempt to slow spoilage through cold. And fair enough: Cooling has always been one of the approaches to food preservation and, in modern times, perhaps the most important. But wouldn’t a history of salt tell much the same story, albeit with entirely different particulars. A history of vinegar, too. If the history of civilization is, in many ways, a history of food—and if the history of food is, in many ways, a history of preservation—then all these stories are going to have the same basic arc. You could explain the rise of Mediterranean culture, for example, by the geographical area’s successful domestication of chickens. It’s not a complete explanation or even much of a convincing one—but the ability to keep chickens did help change the way people fed themselves. To slaughter cows and horses, even sheep and goats, is to be left with a great weight of meat that must somehow be preserved, while chickens are just a day’s worth of food. To slaughter a chicken is to eat today and still have the remaining chickens to eat in the coming days. Besides, chickens produce eggs, just as cows provide milk, for ongoing food. As it happens, modern refrigeration has been the only really successful way humans have found to extend the shelf-life of eggs (as anybody who has ever tasted dehydrated eggs knows). Much earlier in history, cheese allowed the preservation of milk through controlled bacterial growth—and this same history of civilization, especially Europe’s, could be told in the parallel rise of dairy farming and a population that could digest... These deep roots of civilization are what fascinate in the histories of drying, salting, corning, fermenting—even the handful of attempts to preserve with alkalines, from the Mayans’ nixtamalization of corn into hominy to the Scandinavians’...

To demonstrate what a baseball bat looks like, I guess, Tom Jackson brought one onto the set of ESPN's NFL pregame show. Now we all know what a baseball bat is. Thanks, Tom Jackson. * * *. presents: Odell Beckham Jr. deserved a suspension
