People are dependent on the ocean and coasts and their resources for their survival and well-being. Coastal ecosystems of the Nordic countries, such as kelp forests, blue mussel beds, eelgrass meadows and shallow bays and inlets, provide a number of supporting, provisioning, regulating, and cultural ecosystem services to both the local communities as well as the wider population who benefit from them. The study has focused on examining these coastal values through selected examples, and recommend possible applications and relevance for the management of the Nordic coastal areas and their resources. The project has also identified key gaps in the knowledge and suggests where further work should be emphasized.

Sir Isaac Newton (1642–1726) was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist and theologian who has been considered by many to be the greatest and most influential scientist who ever lived. His monograph Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica, published in 1687, laid the foundations for most of classical mechanics. In this work, Newton described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion, which dominated the scientific view of the physical universe for the next three centuries. Newton showed that the motion of objects on Earth and that of celestial bodies is governed by the same set of natural laws: by demonstrating the consistency between Kepler's laws of planetary motion and his theory of gravitation he removed the last doubts about heliocentrism and advanced the scientific revolution. The Principia is generally considered to be one of the most important scientific books ever written, both due to the specific physical laws the work successfully described, and for its style, which assisted in setting standards for scientific publication down to the present time. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_newton)<br /><br />This eBook is taken from a chapter in Sir Robert Stawell Ball's Great Astronomers (2nd edition, 1907).

"Inspiring on so many levels." Philippa Rees, author of 'Involution'.<br /><br />"Why would anyone move into a tent and live on a mountain with no power, no water, and no permanent shelter to speak of?<br /><br />Something has to have gone wrong."<br /><br />Back in 2011, Atulya K Bingham ran out of money and found herself camping alone on Mud Mountain, a remote hill in southern Turkey. The adventure changed her profoundly. Eventually, she built a house out of mud, installed solar power, and lived mortgage free for five years. Then in 2016 things began to go wrong once more.<br /><br />In 2012 Atulya began documenting her experiences. The Mud Mountain Blog started out as a personal log, but over the years grew into something else. Something that reached far wider. The magic of Mud Mountain began to touch others. This is an edited compilation of those blog articles.
