Ebola, das tödliche Virus

Richard Prestons populärwissenschaftlicher Tatsachen-Thriller liest sich spannender als jeder Horror-Roman. Preston berichtet darin über die ersten Infektionen mit dem Ebola-Virus vor über vierzig Jahren. Sein Tatsachenthriller von 1998 ist immer noch hochaktuell, wie die schreckliche Ebola-Epidemie in Zentralafrika gerade zeigt. Ebola gehört zu den gefährlichsten Killerviren. Diese aus dem Afrikanischen Regenwald stammenden sogenannten „Filoviren“, können einen Menschen auf grausamste Art und Weise töten. Das Virus löst innerhalb weniger Tage die inneren Organe auf, und der Erkrankte verblutet von innen. Das Virus ist zudem extrem ansteckend, und weltweit gibt es immer noch kein wirksames Heilmittel dagegen. Deshalb ist es nicht auszuschließen, dass die Menschheit eines Tages einer Seuche wie Ebola erliegen könnte. Preston schildert, wie der Ebola-Erreger über Affen, die für medizinische Versuche importiert wurden, schließlich nach Amerika kommt. In einem kleinen Labor in Reston, USA, verbreitet er Angst und Schrecken. Als sich die Seuche unter den im Quarantänelager zusammengepferchten Affen ausbreitet, rufen die Betreiber der Anlage die Gesundheitsbehörden zu Hilfe. Bald müssen die Wissenschaftler feststellen, dass sich das Virus inzwischen nicht nur durch Kontakt, sondern auch durch die Luft verbreiten kann.

The three most important things to evaluate when selecting Chemical Protective Clothing (CPC) are 1) evidence of degradation of the garment exposed to a chemical; 2) breakthrough time, and 3) permeation rate. Because proper CPC selection must be based on permeation and degradation tests performed upon specific manufacturer products, you need an information source that enables you to access test results quickly and easily. Chemical Protective Clothing Permeation/Degradation Database is that source. It is the world's largest international CPC database, containing over 10,000 results from tests of more than 660 chemicals and mixtures against more than 250 CPC models. Every test result has a complete reference source. Use Chemical Protective Clothing Permeation/Degradation Database as a supplement to your Material Safety Data Sheets to help select the best garments for your particular needs. It will be just as important to use this information to evaluate your existing stock of CPC to determine which chemicals they should not be used with. Furthermore, the powerful searching capabilities built into the database programs help to provide rapid responses in emergency situations, especially when used on portable computers. In fact, searches are even accessible from the U.S. Coast Guard's CameoTM 3 Navigator. ,text>The MacintoshTM version of Chemical Protective Clothing Permeation/Degradation Database can be used on Macintosh Plus, SE, Portable, or any Macintosh II computer with 1 MB (2 MB or more recommended) RAM and a hard drive. You should have Hypercard Version 2.0 or higher and at least 2 MB of available hard drive disk space to use the programs.

F. Scott Fitzgerald: Der große Gatsby, Neuausgabe 2018 || Wir befinden uns an der Ostküste der USA, im Jahr 1922. Es ist die aufregende Zeit der "Roaring Twenties", als in New York Wolkenkratzer aus dem Boden wachsen und die Menschen lebenshungrig den Tanz auf dem Vulkan üben. Auf Long Island lebt man in mondäner Dekadenz, die harten Seiten des Lebens haben hier keinen Platz. Der junge Börsenmakler Nick Carraway bezieht auf der Halbinsel, die New York vorgelagert ist, ein kleines Haus, das er sich mit seinem schmalen Salär gerade noch leisten kann. In der Villa seines Nachbarn werden alle paar Tage monströse Partys mit Hunderten von Gästen gefeiert; der Gastgeber aber, ein gewisser Gatsby, bleibt im Hintergrund. Doch eines Tages steht Gatsby mit seinem riesigen Wagen vor Carraways Häuschen und bittet ihn wenig später um einen merkwürdigen Gefallen ... || Fitzgeralds Kultbuch wurde mehrmals verfilmt, u. a. 1974 mit Robert Redford und 2013 mit Leonardo DiCaprio als Gatsby.
