This volume from the successful Macromolecular Symposia series presents the contributions from the IUPAC-sponsored International Symposium on "Radical Polymerization: Kinetics and Mechanism", held in Il Ciocco, Italy, in September, 2006. This was the fourth within the series of so-called SML conferences, which are the major scientific forum for addressing kinetic and mechanistic aspects of free-radical polymerization and controlled radical polymerization. SML IV again marked an important step forward toward the better understanding of the kinetics and mechanism of radical polymerization, which is extremely relevant for both conventional and controlled radical polymerization and for people in academia as well as in industry. Here, top international authors, such as K. Matyjaszewski, T. P. Davis and T. Fukuda, present their latest research. The five major themes covered were: Fundamentals of free-radical polymerization, heterogeneous polymerization, controlled radical polymerization, polymer reaction engineering, and polymer characterization.
It's southern California in the early Sixties, and Charlotte is a teenager, which is bad enough. She also has strange grandparents, with whom she lives, a schizophrenic ventriloquist alcoholic mother who appears and disappears regularly from her life, and only vague information about the father who died before Charlotte was born. With so much craziness in the family, Charlotte figures, whether it's "nature" or "nurture," she's doomed. In Failure to Zigzag, Jane Vandenburgh gracefully zigzags between hilarity and sorrow as she recounts Charlotte's attempts to grow up and to practice "sanity as a form of revenge."

Erganzungsheft zu Grammatik der Sprache Gudeas von Lagas. Gudea (auch Gudea von Lagas) war ein Stadtfurst (Ensi) des sumerischen Staates Lagas, der nach gegenwartigem Forschungsstand wahrscheinlich um 2141 v. Chr. bis ca. 2122 v. Chr. regierte. Er ist durch mehrere uberlieferte Statuen, die uberwiegend aus Diorit hergestellt wurden, sowie durch diverse Inschriften auf Zylindern und Kegeln - hier vor allem Bauhymnen - die bekannteste sumerische Personlichkeit und eine der bekanntesten Personen der Geschichte Mesopotamiens uberhaupt.upt.
