Sorting through a key code – whether it is the INTERNATIONAL PLUMBING, MECHANICAL, OR FUEL GAS CODES® - can be a daunting task. So when a code update occurs, you may feel even more overwhelmed. Fortunately, there is a resource that will break down all three of these codes so that readers can easily identify key changes and their real-world applications. SIGNIFICANT CHANGES TO THE INTERNATIONAL PLUMBING CODE®, INTERNATIONAL MECHANICAL® CODE AND INTERNATIONAL FUEL GAS CODE® 2012 edition addresses more than 125 of the most crucial changes contained in these codes. Each change analysis features the affected code sections and identifies the type of change: newly added text, a modification of the existing language, or deleted text. Accompanying each change are detailed illustrations and practical examples, which clarify some of the technical jargon and make the content more relevant. The book's attention to detail, its logical organization, and its thorough yet concise coverage all make it an ideal tool for transitioning from the 2009 codes to the new 2012 versions.

Take away the uncertainty about applying the International Residential Code® (IRC®) with this user-friendly guide from the BUILDING CODE BASICS series. Unlike other books on the market, Building Code Basics Residential uses simplified, non-code language and logical topic organization to make complex code concepts more understandable. It avoids the technical language associated with the IRC® and instead features code references and descriptive illustrations and tables to explain code fundamentals. Chapters progress in the order of construction, from site-work and foundations through to fire- and life-safety and environmental requirements of a finished residence. Also included are requirements for plumbing, mechanical, fuel gas, electrical systems, and equipment. Building Code Basics Residents fills the existing gap for technically accurate, highly illustrative residential code resources, making it an ideal resource for both beginning and experienced code users to ensure compliance.

Der stumme Frühling erschien erstmals 1962. Der Titel bezieht sich auf das eingangs erzählte Märchen von der blühenden Stadt, in der sich eine seltsame, schleichende Seuche ausbreitet … Das spannend geschriebene Sachbuch wirkte bei seinem Erscheinen wie ein Alarmsignal und avancierte rasch zur Bibel der damals entstehendenÖkologie-Bewegung. ZumerstenMal wurde hier in eindringlichem Appell die Fragwürdigkeit des chemischen Pflanzenschutzes dargelegt. An einer Fülle von Tatsachen machte Rachel Carson seine schädlichen Auswirkungen auf die Natur und die Menschen deutlich. Ihre Warnungen haben seither nichts von ihrer Aktualität verloren.

Ein großes Epos über die Sklaverei – der bekannteste Roman der Nobelpreisträgerin. Sethe - die auf der Flucht aus der Sklaverei ihr Leben riskierte, ihren Mann verlor und ein Kind begraben musste, die unvorstellbares Leid ertrug und dennoch nicht den Verstand verlor - lebt seit langem in einem kleinen Haus am Rande von Cincinnati, wo sie die Vergangenheit auszulöschen versucht. Doch im Haus Nr. 124 der Bluestone Road treibt ein Spuk sein Unwesen: Der widerspenstige Geist von Sethes Tochter, die vor achtzehn Jahren ums Leben kam, will nicht vergessen werden. Das Kleinkind, dessen Tod Sethe nicht überwinden kann, starb namenlos; sein Grab trägt allein das Wort "Menschenkind". Als Paul D eines Tages vor Sethes Tür steht, reißt er alte Wunden wieder auf - und setzt so einen schmerzhaften Heilungsprozess in Gang... „Menschenkind“ wurde von den Juroren der New York Times zum besten amerikanischen Roman der letzten 25 Jahre gewählt.

Es ist das Enthüllungsbuch, das die Präsidentschaft von Donald Trump erschüttert: Michael Wolffs «Feuer und Zorn» ist ein eindrucksvolles Sittengemälde der amerikanischen Politik unter Trump. Im Mittelpunkt ein Präsident, den seine Mitarbeiter wie ein kleines Kind behandeln, und der umgeben ist von Inkompetenz, Intrigen und Verrat. Der Bestseller-Autor Wolff beschreibt das Chaos, das in den ersten Monaten im Weißen Haus geherrscht hat, er enthüllt, wie nah die Russland-Verbindung an Trump herangerückt ist und wie es zum Rauswurf des FBI-Chefs Comey kam. Und er liefert erstaunliche Details über das Privatleben dieses Präsidenten. Über zweihundert Interviews hat Wolff mit den engsten Mitarbeitern des US-Präsidenten geführt, darunter auch der ehemalige Chef-Berater Stephen Bannon: Noch nie ist es einem Journalisten gelungen, das Geschehen im Weißen Haus so genau nachzuzeichnen. Herausgekommen ist das einzigartige Porträt eines Präsidenten, der selbst nie damit gerechnet hat, die Wahl zu gewinnen. Michael Wolffs Bericht aus dem Weißen Haus unter Trump ist in den USA ein Bestseller: ein aktuelles politisches Buch, das das sich wie ein Königsdrama von Shakespeare liest.

Dieses eBook: "Peer Gynt" ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen. Peer Gynt ist ein 1867 von Henrik Ibsen geschriebenes dramatisches Gedicht. Die Hauptfigur ist der junge Bauernsohn Peer Gynt, der mit Lügengeschichten versucht, der Realität zu entfliehen. So verdrängt er, dass sein Vater, der einst sehr angesehene Jon Gynt, Hof und Habe durch Misswirtschaft und zahlreiche Alkoholeskapaden verloren hat. In Peers Fantasiewelt ist die heruntergekommene Behausung jedoch nach wie vor ein strahlender Palast. Auch seinen eigenen Nichtsnutz verklärt er zu Heldenhaftigkeit. So schildert er seiner Mutter Aase einen halsbrecherischen Ritt auf einem "Bock" über einen Grat, möglicherweise der Besseggen oberhalb des Gjendesees im norwegischen Gebirge Jotunheimen. Von seiner Mutter wird Peer überbehütet und glorifiziert, doch soll er immer ihre Version des Lebens teilen. Auf der Suche nach Liebe und Abenteuer findet er sich bald in einer Welt von Trollen und Dämonen wieder. Er entführt Ingrid, die Braut eines anderen. Gleichzeitig verliebt er sich in die aus pietistischem Elternhaus stammende Solvejg, die ihn anfangs nicht erhört, sich ihm später jedoch anschließt. Henrik Johan Ibsen (1828-1906) war ein norwegischer Schriftsteller und Dramatiker.
