MARGO - Multiproxy Approach for the Reconstruction of the Glacial Ocean surface summarizes the results of the MARGO international working group, with the aim to develop an updated and harmonised reconstruction of sea surface temperatures and sea-ice extent of the Last Glacial Maximum oceans. The MARGO approach differs from previous efforts by developing and consistently applying measures of various aspects of reconstruction reliability, and by combining faunal and geochemical proxies. In 14 papers, the volume provides a comprehensive review of earlier work and a series of new, proxy-specific reconstructions based on census counts of planktonic foraminifera, diatoms, radiolaria and dinoflagellate cysts as well as on Mg/Ca measurements in planktonic foraminifera. The approach of harmonising the calibration and application of different proxies is described in detail, various paleothermometry techniques and their results are compared and the challenge of treating sparsely sampled data as the basis for ocean circulation models is addressed. The use of stable oxygen isotope composition of foraminiferal shells as a proxy for past sea water composition is comprehensively reassessed, and a new approach to the transfer function paleothermometer is presented. This volume represents a landmark contribution to the understanding of ice-age oceanography as well as the proxies used to reconstruct past ocean states. The results will form the basis for forcing and validation of ocean circulation models. New regional reconstructions of Last Glacial Maximum ocean temperatures and sea ice cover Compilation of new calibration and fossil datasets as well as documentation of techniques and approaches to paleoenvironmental reconstructions Comparison of techniques, proxies and modelling approaches

Margo Veillon, one of Egypt's best loved artists, here presents a sampling of her work from throughout her career, as represented in a legacy bequeathed to the American University in Cairo. The collection includes work from across the decades of her career as well as across a variety of media. Although Margo has lived part of her life in Europe, it is clearly Egypt that has held her imagination in all these long years of artistic innovation. One strand of her work is characterized by an ability to capture and depict the energy of a specific moment in time, be it a toss of wheat in the air to separate the chaff, the stoic bride in a wedding procession, or a horse dancing in a tent at a mulid. The stones, sands, and constantly changing light of the desert have been the inspiration for many years for another major line of artistic expression. And a third strand has been her exploration of all that can be seen, not seen, and sensed in one place, in her remarkable series of Global Perspectives. These threads and others no less individual and innovative make up the extraordinarily rich tapestry of Margo Veillon's artistic career, as brought together in the AUC Permanent Collection.

Αυτή εδώ είναι η ιστορία της Μάργκο Κρουπ, μιας έφηβης απ' τα μεσοδυτικά που αφήνει την πατρίδα της, το Μάουντ Πλέζαντ του Μίσιγκαν, για να πάει στο Χόλλυγουντ. Στο τέλος του δρόμου βρίσκονται ο Σήζαρ, ο νεαρός Μεξικανός που ερωτεύεται τρελά, κι ο Μαξ, ένας φανατικός κινηματογραφόφιλος που μανατζάρει ένα ροκ συγκρότημα, τους Gringos, καθώς κι ο Γκρεγκ Τζόουνς, ένας πρώην ρόουντι των Grand Funk που γράφει τ' απομνημονεύματά του· και κάμποσοι άλλοι παράξενοι κι ευάλωτοι άνθρωποι που γεμίζουν, άθελά τους, τη ζωή της Μάργκο με τρυφερότητα, αναστάτωση και απόγνωση. Και παρ' όλο που η Φτωχή Μάργκο μιλάει για το πώς είναι να είσαι νέος, κι ανήσυχος και έκπληκτος μέσα στη μεγαλούπολη, δεν πρόκειται για ένα μυθιστόρημα πάνω στο σεξ, τα ναρκωτικά και το ροκ εν ρολ, αλλά μάλλον για το χρονικό μιας ενηλικίωσης, μιας ελεύθερης πτώσης κι ενός ανεκπλήρωτου έρω

In the third volume of this beloved graphic novel series, Drew Weing delivers a fresh and funny take on the age-old battle between kids and closet-dwelling monsters. As the assistant to Margo Maloo, Charles has gone on assignment in some pretty interesting locations. He's been to a vampire's lair, an ogre's den, and even a monster grocery store! But he's never been to the Downside, Echo City's underground monster metropolis that is super mysterious and DEFINITELY off-limits to kids. But a settlement of giant spiders is about to be dynamited by unwitting construction workers—and, coincidentally, one of those giant spiders "accidentally" bites Charles. His cure and the spiders' salvation lie in the Downside—if Charles and Margo can make it in time.
