✏Bloom Book Summary : Huck, a young man from Weston, Mississippi, sits alone in a diner, pondering the misery of his life. The weather is dreary, much like Huck's life at the moment. An elderly gentleman joins him for a cup of coffee while riding out the storm. Huck's life will never be the same. Bloom has been described as a mixture of The Notebook and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. With its unique twist on the genre, you will find yourself in love with the characters. Love, loss, friendship, and betrayal play out against the backdrop of the deep South. Bloom is the story of a young man's struggle with life, a kindly old soul's wisdom, and a love so powerful that even darkness cannot prevail in the lives of the willful. Full of raw emotion, and a stark, but real view of life, Bloom is a story guaranteed to resonate with readers on many levels, and shows we are more than the sum of our experiences. What people are saying about Bloom: " I (& many others I'm sure) totally get the point!! Struggle, sweetness, magnolias, friendship, redemption, love...." "This book moved me to tears. Sad, happy, and everything in between. True life, true love." "I cried out loud, and I laughed out loud. What a beautiful story!" "I want more!" There is nothing in the world like a wedding in July. Especially if that wedding is in a church in the country. This particular church just happened to be the oldest one in Reid County, just outside of Weston, Mississippi. The wedding plans had been ramping up for months, and it was finally the day. Huck looked out and imagined what it would be like later when the guests packed in the church, and all the guests would be dressed in their best. But for now, it was quiet. The women always take priority on the wedding day; the men just have to show up and do as they are told. Everyone knows that weddings are run by the women. As long as the men do as they are told, all will be OK. Huck had butterflies in his stomach. He had dreamed of this day for so long, and he couldn’t believe it was finally here. There was a time that he didn’t believe that a day like today could happen. Huck heard some of the women coming in the back of the church. He decided that he should get out of the way and let them get settled. He walked out of the front doors of the church and toward the pasture that sat to the west of the church and toward the split rail fence that separated the church from the pasture. Two sides of the pasture were lined with magnolia trees that were in the final stages of bloom. Their petals had fallen over the course of the last week or so and made a surreal picture of white and pink carpeting along the edges of the field of green. Huck walked toward the fence, the journal that he had been carrying all morning under his arm. One hop over and he was walking through the trees. He sat down under a sizeable magnolia and faced the church. This day was happy for so many reasons, but he felt the full weight of it all of a sudden. He had not read the journal in a long time and with today being the start of a new chapter, it felt like a good time to reflect. There were so many times that could not have turned out well. Life has a way of knocking the breath of you when you look back on it. Joy and sadness are close kin. Huck closed his eyes and thought about that day back then. The day that he thought he could not go on. The day that the dreams had finally caught up to him. He flipped open the journal and began to read.

✏Analysis of Rubber and Rubber like Polymers Book Summary : The first edition of this book (1958) described an analytical situation which had existed for a number of years for maintaining quality control on vulcanizates of natural rubber although the situation had recently been disturbed by the introduction of a range of synthetic rubbers which required identification and quantitative estimation. For the former purpose 'wet' chemistry, based on various imperfectly understood organic reactions, was pressed into service. Alongside this was the first introduction of instrumental analysis, using the infrared spectra of either the polymers or, more usually, their pyrolytic products to 'fingerprint' the material. The identification of a range of organic accelerators, antioxidants and their derivatives which had been intro duced during the 1920s and 30s was, in the first edition, dealt with by a combination of column chromatography and infrared spectroscopy or by paper chromatography. Quantitative procedures were, however, still classical in the tradition of gravimetric or volumetric assays with an initially weighed sample yielding, after chemical manipulation, a carefully precipitated, dried and weighed end product, or a solution of known composition whose weight or titre, as a percentage of the initial sample, quantified the function being determined. The second edition of this work (1968) consolidated the newer techni ques which had been introduced in the first without adding to them although, in other applications of analytical chemistry, instrumental analysis had already brought about a transformation in laboratory practice.

✏Bloom Book Summary : A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK Mycora: technogenic life. Fast-reproducing, fast-mutating, and endlessly voracious. In the year 2106, these microscopic machine/creatures have escaped their creators to populate the inner solar system with a wild, deadly ecology all their own, pushing the tattered remnants of humanity out into the cold and dark of the outer planets. Even huddled beneath the ice of Jupiter's moons, protected by a defensive system known as the Immunity, survivors face the constant risk of mycospores finding their way to the warmth and brightness inside the habitats, resulting in a calamitous "bloom." But the human race still has a trick or two up its sleeves; in a ship specially designed to penetrate the deadly Mycosystem, seven astronauts are about to embark on mankind's boldest venture yet-the perilous journey home to infected Earth! Yet it is in these remote conditions, against a virtually omnipotent foe, that we discover how human nature plays the greatest role in humanity's future. Reviews "Tense, dynamic, intelligent... terrifyingly vivid" -David Brin "An ingenious yarn with challenging ideas, well-handled technical details, and plenty of twists and turns." -Kirkus Reviews "BLOOM is tense, dynamic, intelligent, offering a terrifyingly vivid view of how technology can rocket out of our control" -David Brin, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of The Uplift War "A view of mankind's future and the universe reminiscent of Arthur C. Clarke." -The Denver Post "In nearly every passage, we get another slice of the science of McCarthy's construction, and a deeper sense of danger and foreboding... McCarthy develops considerable tension." -San Diego Union-Tribune "The Mycora are an astonishingly original concept, one of the most chilling versions of nanotechnology yet envisioned. McCarthy has a real talent for hard-SF concepts and thriller plotting." -Science Fiction Age "Although set in the twenty-second century, this transcendent tale of close encounters with awesome life forms echoes current anxieties over the godlike manipulations of bioengineering.... A wallop of a finale." -Publishers Weekly "McCarthy combines straightforward SF adventure with a generous dose of speculative science in this simply told story, which pits a few courageous individuals against an unknown (though once familiar) universe." -Library Journal About the Author Engineer/Novelist/Journalist/Entrepreneur Wil McCarthy is a former contributing editor for WIRED magazine and science columnist for the SyFy channel (previously SciFi channel), where his popular "Lab Notes" column ran from 1999 through 2009. A lifetime member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, he has been nominated for the Nebula, Locus, Seiun, AnLab, Colorado Book, Theodore Sturgeon and Philip K. Dick awards, and contributed to projects that won a Webbie, an Eppie, a Game Developers' Choice Award, and a General Excellence National Magazine Award.

✏Bloom Book Summary : Starting from the botanical crazes inspired by Linnaeus in the eighteenth century, and exploring the variations it spawned--natural history, landscape architecture, polemical battles over botany's prurience--this study offers a fresh, detailed reading of the courtship novel from Jane Austen to George Eliot and Henry James. By reanimating a cultural understanding of botany and sexuality that we have lost, it provides an entirely new and powerful account of the novel's role in scripting sexualized courtship, and illuminates how the novel and popular science together created a cultural figure, the blooming girl, that stood at the center of both fictional and scientific worlds.
