Als der Zürcher Pflastersetzer Hans Rüegger in seiner kleinen Druckerei 1515 einen gewissen Christoph Froschauer als Gesellen einstellte, war der Buchdruck noch kaum älter als heute das Internet. Froschauer übernahm die Druckerei und legte 1519 den Grundstein zu Orell Füssli. Seine gedruckten Bücher waren damals High-Tech und erfolgreiches Geschäftsmodell. Ein halbes Jahrtausend ist seither vergangen, Drucken ist Orell Füsslis Kernkompetenz geblieben. Hier erschienen grosse Werke der Reformation, wie die Zwingli-Bibel, oder die ersten deutschen Übersetzungen von William Shakespeare. Es wurden Landkarten gedruckt, bevor Galileo Galilei geboren war. Die Firma entwickelte den einzigartigen Photochrom-Druck. Und nicht nur im Banknotendruck, sondern auch beim Schweizer Pass werden international wegweisende Entwicklungen aus dem firmeneigenen Sicherheitsdruck angewendet. Die Festschrift präsentiert anhand von zehn Druckerzeugnissen das eindrückliche Portfolio von Orell Füssli seit 1519, dessen Bandbreite von Büchern bis zur Banknote reicht.

A strange assortment of characters inhabit these poems, including George Mackay Brown, Johnny Cash, William Dampier, a lion-keeper in wartime Afganistan, and a shipload of sailors in a Shetland churchyard. The long central work of the collection provides an elegiac meditation on the life and death of a young soldier who succumbed to hypothermia during the Napoleonic Wars. Finally, and quite unexpectedly, the poem 'Googlisms' provides an outpouring of quirky definitions from a website that collects information from the search engine Google.
New Science Theory by Vincent Wilmot is basically the New-Science-Theory.com website as on 1 January 2019, for changes since then visit the site which has a Sitemap noting updates. Especially good for those interested in physics, it concentrates chiefly on the four great physicists Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, Rene Descartes and William Gilbert. Also here are fine sections covering Galileo, Kepler, History of Science, Philosophy of Science, Gravity, Light, Standard Model, String Theory, Probability Science and General Image Theory.

From Robin Sickles: As I indicated to you some months ago Professor William Horrace and I would like Springer to publish a Festschrift in Honor of Peter Schmidt, our professor. Peter's accomplishments are legendary among his students and the profession. I have a bit of that student perspective in my introductory and closing remarks on the website for the conference we had in his honor this last July. I have attached the conference program from which selected papers will come (as well as from students who were unable to attend). You will also find the names of his students (40) on the website. A top twenty economics department could be started up from those 40 students. Papers from some festschrifts have a thematic link among the papers based on subject material. What I think is unique to this festschrift is that the theme running through the papers will be Peter's remarkable legacy left to his students to frame a problem and then analyze and examine it in depth using rigorous techniques but rarely just for the purpose of showcasing technical refinements per se. I think this would be a book that graduate students would find invaluable in their early research careers and seasoned scholars would find invaluable in both their and their students' research.
The first book is basically the New-Science-Theory.com site as on 1 January 2018, for changes since then visit the website with its Sitemap noting updates. It is especially good for those interested in physics theory, concentrating chiefly on the four great physicists William Gilbert, Rene Descartes, Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein - and also having fine sections on Galileo, Kepler, History of Science, Gravity, Light, String Theory, Standard Model Physics, Probability Science, Philosophy of Science and General Image Theory Science. The second book is a new improved English translation of William Gilbert's banned Latin 1600 'De Magnete' or 'On The Magnet'. This is rather easier to read than its two earlier translations, and significantly helps to clarify Gilbert's 'attraction' physics which Newton put as one of the two mathematized physics options and which he is believed to have privately favoured. It is basically a novel signal-response or remote-control physics that may still have relevance.
