Excerpt from In a Steamer Chair: And Other Ship-Board Stories Mr. George Morris stood with his arms folded on the bulwarks of the steamship City of Buffalo, and gazed down into the water. All around him was the bustle and hurry of passengers embarking, with friends bidding good-by. Among the throng, here and there, the hardworking men of the steamer were getting things in order for the coming voyage. Trunks were piled up in great heaps ready to be lowered into the hold; portmanteaus, satchels, and handbags, with tags tied to them, were placed in a row waiting to be claimed by the passengers, or taken down into the staterooms. To all this bustle and confusion George Morris paid no heed. He was thinking deeply, and his thoughts did not seem to be very pleasant. There was nobody to see him off, and he had evidently very little interest in either those who were going or those who were staying behind.

The First International Conference on Concrete Repair, Rehabilitation and Retrofitting (ICCRRR 2005) was held in Cape Town, South Africa, from 21-23 November 2005. The conference was a collaborative venture by researchers from the South African Research Programme in Concrete Materials (based at the Universities of Cape Town and The Witwatersrand) and The Construction Materials Section at Leipzig University in Germany.
The conference has come at an opportune moment for concrete construction worldwide and sought to focus on an increasingly important aspect in modern infrastructure provision and retention: that of appropriately repairing, maintaining, rehabilitating, and if necessary retrofitting existing infrastructure with a view to extending its life and maximising its economic return. The conference Proceedings contain papers, presented at the conference, and classified into a total of 15 sub themes which can be grouped under the four main themes of (i) Concrete durability aspects, (ii) Condition assessment of concrete structures, (iii) Concrete repair, rehabilitation and retrofitting, and (iv) Performance monitoring and health assessment. The major interest in terms of submissions exists in the fields of concrete durability aspects in connection with material compositions, NDE/NDT and measurement techniques, repair methods and materials, and structural strengthening and retrofitting techniques. The large number of high-quality papers presented and the wide range of relevant topics covered confirm that these Proceedings will be a valued reference for many working in the important fields of concrete durability and repair and that they form a suitable base for discussion and provide suggestions for future development and research.
The third set in the successful History of Water Series focuses on the most pressing global water issues: urbanisation, international water law, food security and climate change. As more and more of the world population live in urban environments what effect will this have on our capacity to meet growing water demands? And as demand for water increases, and climate change threatens the water security of already water scarce regions, how can we devise systems of water sharing and transboundary water governance that will meet the challenges presented by increased competition for our most precious natural resource? The volumes in Series III of the pioneering History of Water Series present an original and multidisciplinary perspective, by many of the leading water experts of the day, on the vital water issues now challenging the planet.
Air travel et cetera portrays people and their diverse behaviours in public places. Every travel, for the author, is an opportunity for cultural exploration and the book showcases interesting people behaviours imbibed from different lands and cultures. It is all about life in airports, train stations, trains, beaches and highways. Body language of the late guests dashing into airports, stereotyped behaviours inside aircrafts, slices of life that cross our ways in the mundane world and finer emotions of the nature can all be found in the book. That life is a big canvas and every moment a celebration is what the author has tried to convey through the work.
