The 100 Best Books of All Time Many publishers have lists of 100 best books, defined by their own criteria. This article enumerates some lists of "100 best" books for which there are fuller articles. Among them, Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels (Xanadu, 1985) and Modern Fantasy: The 100 Best Novels (Grafton, 1988) are collections of 100 short essays by a single author, David Pringle, with moderately long critical introductory chapters also by Pringle. For publisher Xanadu, Science Fiction was the first of four "100 Best" books published from 1985 to 1988.

Devadoss, S.L. and O'Rourke, J.: Discrete and Computational Geometry (eBook and Hardcover). Discrete geometry is a relatively new development in pure mathematics, while computational geometry is an emerging area in applications-driven computer science. Their intermingling has yielded exciting advances in recent years, yet what has been lacking until now is an undergraduate textbook that bridges the gap between the two. Discrete and Computational Geometry offers a comprehensive yet accessible introduction to this cutting-edge frontier of mathematics and computer science. This book covers traditional topics such as convex hulls, triangulations, and Voronoi diagrams, as well as more recent subjects like pseudotriangulations, curve reconstruction, and locked chains. It also touches on more advanced material, including Dehn invariants, associahedra, quasigeodesics, Morse theory, and the recent resolution of the Poincaré conjecture. Connections to real-world applications are made throughout, and algorithms are presented independently of any programming language.

How to Cite a President Trump Tweet - EasyBib Blog The use of innovative technology by presidents to address the nation isn’t a new concept. Abraham Lincoln was one of the first presidents to use the telegram, Franklin Roosevelt spoke via radio through his Fireside Chats, and Harry Truman was the first president to broadcast on TV. It isn’t too surprising that our Commander-in-Chief can now be coined as the “Commander-in-Tweet.” President Donald Trump’s excessive use of Twitter has kept us up-to-date on his promises, goals, and thoughts on pretty much every topic from jobs, international relations, and even celebrity meetups. To cite a tweet from President Trump, or “Trump Tweet,” locate the following pieces of information: His Twitter handle (@realDonaldTrump or @POTUS)The full tweet including any hashtagsThe date and time the tweet was postedThe URL or direct link to the tweet (this can be found by clicking on the three dots at the bottom right of his tweets)

Mendeley now performs one way sync with zotero...I prefer zotero...still looking for the perfect system. Still limiting I generating reports. What researcher asks for a notes report one reference at a time?! by kbpc172 Jan 5

Thanks for the reminder emma.b I've used Zotero for a long time now and meant to add - have rectified this now :) by drbazuk Nov 21

I prefer zotero performed by the CHNM (George Masson University), very involved in Open Access; a large users community. by emma.b Sep 8

ohh. ok. it looked pretty inclusive when I pearled it. do you know of a better site? by dietrichmad Sep 7

Until publishers begin attaching accurate metadata to their downloadable PDFs Mendeley will be a nonstarter. Mendeley has virtually no information about what people are reading because the STM Publishers never through to add metadata to their PDFs. Now, beacuse of the massive number of PDFs that have already been published without metadata, it is too costly for the Publishers to go back and reenrich their PDFs. by nbrothers Sep 6

Nothing specific, was just curious. I tried it out for a few days, but am not convinced yet. Maybe it will take me some more time dabbling with it. Thanks for the offer though! by dutchital Aug 31
