Living in a world that is increasingly 'on the move' means that many of us now rely on mobile devices, social media, and networking technologies to coordinate togetherness with our social networks even when we are apart. Nowhere is this phenomenon more evident than in the emerging practices of 'interactive travel'. Today's travellers are more likely than ever to pack a laptop or a mobile phone and to use these devices to stay in touch with friends and family members - as well as to connect with strangers and other travellers - while they are on the road. New practices such as location-aware navigating, travel blogging, flashpacking and Couchsurfing now shape the way travellers engage with each other, with their social networks, and with the world around them.
Travel Connections prompts a rethinking of the key paradigms in tourism studies in the digital age. Interactive travel calls into question longstanding tourism concepts such as landscape, the tourist gaze, hospitality, authenticity and escape. The book proposes a range of new concepts to describe the way tourists inhabit the world and engage with their social networks in the twenty-first century: smart tourism, the mediated gaze, mobile conviviality, re-enchantment and embrace.
Based on intensive fieldwork with interactive travellers, Travel Connections offers a detailed account of this emerging phenomenon and uncovers the new forms of mediated and face-to-face togetherness that become possible in a mobile world. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of sociology, tourism and hospitality, new media, cosmopolitanism studies, mobility studies and cultural studies.
At the start of 2005, 18 months after his wife Loretta lost her battle with cancer, Ray Uzanas sold his house in Rhode Island and began a journey of self discovery, renewal, and adventure. Ray's was a 21st century odyssey where he not only came to accept his past loss but also passionately and privately experienced the challenges and joys of traveling around the lower 48 states. For 20,000 miles, over a period of nearly six months, Uzanas crossed the country on its less traveled byways with little advance planning, using only the logistics of the situation and his interests to determine his route. Finding the elusive Venus fly trap growing in the wild, sleeping in a tree hut in the forest of Georgia, solo hiking within the barren White Sands of NM, encountering a curious and hungry bear in Sequoia, talking photography with a former Ansel Adams student in Mendocino, often crossing the path of Lewis & Clark's 1803/05 expedition, observing the predator/prey drama in Yellowstone's Lamar Valley, meeting tribal elders of the Crow Indians in Montana, participating in a Nebraska cattle auction, walking the Field of Dreams baseball diamond - and much more - are part of his unforgettable odyssey. His visits to such places as Wounded Knee, South Dakota, his (strictly investigational) stop at a Nevada brothel, and exploration of several dinosaur fossil beds provide insightful, provocative perspectives. Uzanas takes the reader on a trip to both the well-known and the off beat treasures of U.S. history and culture, and he accomplishes this with unbridled curiosity and enthusiasm. Ray's odyssey is a personal memoir and travelogue that stimulates the reader's sense of adventure and learning. It will be especially inspirational to baby boomers, retirees, and young people interested in independent travel, and it is one man's attempt to cope with the loss of a loved one.
This book provides a chronological introduction to the electromagnetic theory of light, using selected extracts from classic texts such as Gilbert'sDe Magnete, Franklin's Experiments and Observations on Electricity, and Huygens'Treatise on Light. Particular attention is given to the works of Faraday, Maxwell and Heaviside, scientists who unified the formerly separate disciplines of electricity, magnetism and light. Their electromagnetic theory-developed during the 19th century-would lead to the invention of modern radar, electrical power grids, and telecommunication networks.
Each chapter of this book begins with a short introduction followed by a reading selection. Carefully crafted study questions draw out key points in the text and focus the reader's attention on the author's methods, analysis and conclusions. Numerical and laboratory exercises at the end of each chapter test the reader's ability to understand and apply key concepts from the text.
Electricity, Magnetism and Light is the third of four volumes in A Student's Guide through the Great Physics Texts. This book grew out of a four-semester undergraduate physics curriculum designed to encourage a critical and circumspect approach to natural science while at the same time preparing students for advanced coursework in physics.
This book is particularly suitable as a college-level textbook for students of the natural sciences, history or philosophy. It can also serve as a textbook for advanced high-school or home-schooled students, or as a thematically-organized source-book for scholars and motivated lay-readers. In studying the classic scientific texts included herein, the reader will be drawn toward a lifetime of contemplation.
Have you ever dreamed of travelling around the world? Not merely on a shoestring but one that is multi-threaded that keeps on expanding and increasingly colourful and fulfilling. This is a story of a woman who made a modern day pilgrimage and spiritual journey as she traveled through India, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia not only on a budget but totally dependent on divine providence, trusting that all that she needs will be provided by God, by the universe. She found a way to balance her childhood Christian faith with new lessons and values of intention, law of attraction and gratitude. What began as a journey in physical miles ended up in spiritual mileage-into knowing herself, thus overcame fears and found herself. The journey included moments of just Being vs Doing, and coming to seeing human beings, herself and others as channels of love, peace and joy. A great story for those starting their own exploration of themselves and spirituality Website: www.RunWaters.blogspot.com
