This book explores the governance of the UK, and the process of constitutional change, between Scotland's independence referendum in September 2014 and the UK general election in May 2015. The book contrasts the attitudes of the public, captured through an original survey, with those of politicians, civil servants, and civic leaders, identified through over forty interviews. It pays particular attention to two case studies involving recent changes to the UK's governing arrangements: the Smith Commission and the transfer of further powers to the Scottish Parliament, and Greater Manchester's devolution deal that has become a model for devolution across England. It also considers the issue of lowering the voting age to 16, contrasting the political attitudes of younger voters in Scotland with those in the rest of the UK. The book will be of interest to students and scholars of UK politics, devolution, constitutional change, public attitudes, and territorial politics.
A compilation of spiritual poems inspired by the universal Spirit that binds us together, produced to keep in mind the often overlooked Joy and purpose of our journey back home. It is meant to extend the knowledge of the pure Love that is present and given to all life, to help express this Truth that lives in all of us and to remind us that, at the core of our being, there is a light of Love that eternally flows within each and every one of us. Most importantly, these words help to inspire that light, invigorate those who hear its voice and aid in the process of taking on this grand adventure toward the remembrance of our Spirit.
A PRELUDE TO THE POETRYMaking poem is an art,An art that encourages us to spill out our emotions and dreams, hope, ideals and aspirations,An art that cure the pains of An ailing heart, Pacifies a trouble mind, Ignites a dying soul,An art that enlightens a gloomy face, gives hope to a pessimistic heart, And brings energy to a retiring soul. by: K.A.M An excerpt from the Poem... "ENDEARMENT" "It is a sweet scent of a rose, That tingle one's senses, Bringing one's soul to its greatest height, It is ENDEARMENT... the magic for unfading love."Lifted from the poem... "DESTINY" "At the midst of the whirling winds, And at the heights of the soaring sea, Life ends, most believe, Yet my friend, it is where life, really begins."An encouraging portion of the poem... "LIFE'S MYSTERY" "LIFE, maybe Like day and night, With sun and stars and moon to light, With rains and storms, That may bring darkness to your sight Yet, always remember... there's a rainbow afterwards."
As a spectroscopic method, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) has seen spectacular growth over the past two decades, both as a technique and in its applications. Today the applications of NMR span a wide range of scientific disciplines, from physics to biology to medicine. Each volume of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance comprises a combination of annual and biennial reports which together provide comprehensive of the literature on this topic. This Specialist Periodical Report reflects the growing volume of published work involving NMR techniques and applications, in particular NMR of natural macromolecules which is covered in two reports: "NMR of Proteins and Acids" and "NMR of Carbohydrates, Lipids and Membranes". For those wanting to become rapidly acquainted with specific areas of NMR, this title provides unrivalled scope of coverage. Seasoned practitioners of NMR will find this an in valuable source of current methods and applications. Specialist Periodical Reports provide systematic and detailed review coverage in major areas of chemical research. Compiled by teams of leading authorities in the relevant subject areas, the series creates a unique service for the active research chemist, with regular, in-depth accounts of progress in particular fields of chemistry. Subject coverage within different volumes of a given title is similar and publication is on an annual or biennial basis.

Crosby, International Space University e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org For the sixth annual ISU Symposium the theme was "Smaller Satellites: Bigger Business? Concepts, Applications and Markets for Micro/Nanosatellites in a New Information World". Thus, the Symposium addressed the crucial question: are small satellites the saviour of space programmes around the world It did this from the unique perspective of the International Space today? University - the interdisciplinary, international and intercultural perspective. This Symposium brought together a variety of people working on small satellites - engineers, scientists, planners, providers, operators, policy makers and business executives, together with representatives from regulatory bodies, from national and international organizations, and from the finance sector, and also entrepreneurs. Discussion and debate were encouraged, based on the papers presented and those published here.
