'Cell Survival and Cell Death, 2e' provides a comprehensive update on the cell signaling that underlies the main cell death programs (apoptosis, pyroptosis, and necroptosis) and how this knowledge is driving the development of therapeutic drugs to treat some human diseases. Contributors describe in detail the molecular mechanisms of cell death signaling and the myriad players involved, including death receptor-ligand systems, BCL-2 family proteins, caspases, inflammasomes, gasdermin, MLKL, RIPK1, A20, and XIAP.
It started life as the concept drawing for a mobile 'status update' tool only geeks could love. Now we cannot imagine a world without Twitter, its hashtags, and the worldwide movements it has helped create. A new book tracks its journey.
In established democracies with long experience of democracy, the risk of democratic breakdown, in the face of a crisis like the current corona-crisis, is low.

University of Illinois classics professor Clara Bosak-Schroeder writes about how the ancient Greeks thought about natural resources and how it is relevant to responding to climate change today.
Understanding Obesity: From its Causes to impact on Life presents an overview of the main contributing factors to obesity: from social and behavioral determinants throughout the life course, influences from before we are born to what we eat (not only nutrients and non-nutrient compounds with impact on body weight but also food contaminants), which bacteria colonize our gut, and how and how much we spend energy we accumulate.
Liutex-based and Other Mathematical, Computational and Experimental Methods for Turbulence Structure is a new book published by Bentham Science and edited by Chaoqun Liu and Yisheng Gao. The core of this book is a collection of papers presented in the 13th World Congress of Computational Mechanics (WCCM2018), Symposium 704, Mathematics and Computations for Multiscale Structures of Turbulent and Other Complex Flows, New York, United States on July 27, 2018.
Two authors representing environmental geomorphology and historical archaeology collaborated in an investigation that aimed to examine the material culture still evident in urban burial sites with dated, upstanding headstone memorials.
New book explores human's endeavours to measure the age of the Earth -- the biblical story, geology's response, Darwin's contribution, Kelvin's cooling Earth model, and modern science.
A new free children's book gently introduces the ideas of genetics and DNA in the form of a bedtime story.
