Born on November 5th 1850 in Johnstown, Wisconsin, Ella Wheeler was the youngest of four children. She began to write as a child and by the time she graduated was already well known as a poet throughout Wisconsin. Regarded more as a popular poet than a literary poet her most famous work 'Solitude' reflects on a train journey she made where giving comfort to a distressed fellow traveller she wrote how the others grief imposed itself for a time on her 'Laugh and the world laughs with you, Weep and you weep alone'. It was published in 1883 and was immensely popular. The following year, 1884, she married Robert Wilcox. They lived for a time in New York before moving to Connecticut. Their only child, a son, died shortly after birth. Here we publish one of her many poetry books, the classic Maurine, that so endeared her to her audience. Ella died of breast cancer on October 30th, 1919.
I feel that this is a unique book of poetry, because it takes the reader on a journey of the Heroic Poet Errant. Like a wandering knight, the Poet falls into the pits of despair, crawls out, and gains a truer, more affirmed sense of Self. Spin The Wheel was written at a time when I believed that life was "suffering." As stated in the "Four Noble Truths" of the Buddhist Dharma, the truth of "Dukha" is that life is anxious, unsatisfactory and suffering. I sought refuge in the Three Jewels to bring my spirit mental clarity and centeredness in a world full of drama. The process of writing this poetic story began my path to salvation. And now I am ready to share it with you.Writing this story allowed for the exploration of enlightened thinking and the examination of our human drama. This fostered my appreciation that we are all divine and that we are all connected, spiritually and physically. We are all one upon Earth - together.I hope this book finds you when you can use it the most. Let the journey begin.
In 1625 Lady Eleanor Davies' life took a dramatic turn when, by her account in 1641, a "Heavenly voice" told her "There is Ninteene yeares and a halfe to the day of Judgement, and you as the meek Virgin". That same year she published her first treatise, A Warning to the Dragon, initiating her controversial career as a writer of prophetic tracts. Between 1641 and 1652 she would produce some 66 of them, using the Bible to gauge the cosmic significance of events, great and small, taking place in her nation and in her personal life. They focus on a complex of personal and political events that Lady Eleanor thought indicated the fast approach of the "last days" foretold by the biblical prophets Daniel and John of Patmos. A complement to Teresa Feroli's facsimile edition of Eleanor Davies' pre-1640 texts (Ashgate, 2000), this pair of volumes reproduces 60 texts from the corpus of 66 printed between 1641 and 1652.
Why is knowledge of soil stress and deformation state important for off-road locomotion? How do you measure soil stress and deformation under wheel loads? What are the actual values of stresses and deformation in soil or snow under a passing wheel? Providing answers to these questions and more, Dynamics of Wheel-Soil Systems: A Soil Stress and Deformation-Based Approach is a practical reference for anyone who works with experiment design and data analysis of soil stress and deformation measurements under vehicle load.
Based on the author's 15 years of experience in field experimentation on wheel-soil dynamics, the book describes methods and devices for soil stress and deformation measurements and presents numerical data from full-scale field experiments. These methods offer practical solutions to methodological problems that may arise during the design and preparation of field experiments.
A valuable reference on an important area of terramechanics, this book shows how to analyze and model wheel-soil interactions to create more effective designs for a range of vehicle types.
