“Globalisation has made a dramatic if belated foray into Calcutta, once considered the Second City of the Raj and India’s cultural capital. The most visible of its impacts has been a rapid change in the city’s skyline.
The outlines of the Victoria Memorial Hall, Howrah Bridge and the Ochterlony Monument (today’s Sahid Minar) that once ruled Calcutta’s horizon, have been fast overshadowed by the jagged contours of high-rise and mid-rise buildings and towers -- masses of aesthetically-dead concrete. By contrast, the city’s built heritage inherited from pre-independence times may be in the last stages of ruination but the buildings bear traces of the glamour that once won Calcutta the sobriquet of ‘City of Palaces’.
Although often conceived by European architects, without the skill and(less)
She was the first female war correspondent and covered combat during the Second World War. The first American to be allowed into the Soviet Union, she travelled through the country documenting its rapid industrialization, and even managed to photograph Joseph Stalin at the Kremlin.
Some of Margaret’s most celebrated photographs were taken in India and Pakistan in 1947-48, as the two countries marched towards freedom from British colonial rule. She photographed the times and the leaders, including Mahatma Gandhi (who called her his ‘torturer’) and Muhammed Ali Jinnah.
She was eyewitness to the migration of millions and the mayhem of communal violence that accompanied the subcontinent’s partition into two independent nations. This body of work forms the focus(less)

It successfully answers all questions from the area of computer networking and internet operation. After giving a brief explanation of how the underlying hardware works and discussing modulating a carrier, asynchronous, character-oriented data transmission, it defines terms such as bandwidth and baud.
It introduces ten motivation for using packets, and then describes characteristics used to categorize networks as: LANs, local loops, WANs, public or private, connection oriented or connectionless, as well as basic network topologies and wiring schemes. Finally it includes a discussion of both general and specific applications by describing the client-server model(less)

Index. "Biotechnology is the culmination of more than 8,000 years of human experience using live organisms and the process of fermentation to make useful products.
It can be viewed as a group of useful, enabling technologies with wide and diverse applications in the industry, commerce and environment. Historically, biotechnology evolved as an artisanal skill rather than a science, exemplified in the manufacture of beers, wines, cheese etc.
Today biotechnology is applied to manufacturing processes used in health care, food and agriculture, industrial processes and environmental cleanup, among other applications. This book offers a comprehensive description of the applications(less)
