Cooking is ultimately about preparing food with heat. Therefore, the more temperature control you have, the more control you have over the outcome. Sous Vide is the most precise and forgiving of today's cooking methods. This book is a guide to that Sous Vide cooking.Although the name "Sous Vide" may sound unfamiliar, it shouldn't. Instead it simply refers to a cooking method that has actually been around in some form since our ancestors started experimenting with fire! Over the years that Sous Vide method has continually evolved and become better understood until it has formed today's extraordinarily user friendly, versatile, safe and efficient cooking technique perfect for both home and professional kitchens. Combined with roasting, searing and other more well known methods, Sous Vide cooking produces results that can't be replicated any other way. Whether readers are just starring to learn about Sous Vide cooking or are already well acquainted, this book will provide the information needed to expand their kitchen horizons with ease. More specifically, the book presents the fundamentals behind all key aspects of the Sous Vide concept including equipment and packaging, vacuum packaging, cooking times and temperatures and safety. It also includes a wide array of tested recipes chosen for their core techniques which can be easily combined and expanded to form an unsurpassed repertoire of meal sensations that can not be created any other way.The book was developed by Philip Preston with the support of his culinary team at PolyScience, a leading innovator in precise temperature control. That team loves to cook and is constantly exploring all aspects of the culinary arts and sciences for ideas to help readers easily, consistently and cost effectively create signature dining experiences, anytime they want. In turn, the world's most accomplished kitchen experts now depend on PolyScience for their precise temperature control and other kitchen products to turn their culinary visions into realities. Many of those culinary stars have contributed to this book in order to help readers take control of their kitchens.

Highlights key research currently being undertaken within the field of telepresence, providing the most detailed account of the field to date, advancing our understanding of a fundamental property of all media - the illusion of presence; the sense of “being there” inside a virtual environment, with actual or virtual others. This collection has been put together by leading international scholars from America, Europe, and Asia. Together, they describe the state-of-the-art in presence theory, research and technology design for an advanced academic audience. Immersed in Media provides research that can help designers optimize presence for users of advanced media technologies such as virtual and augmented reality, collaborative social media, robotics, and artificial intelligence and lead us to better understand human cognition, emotion and behaviour.

Immersed tunnels have been around for more than a century but remain a relatively unknown form of tunnel construction. For waterway crossings they are an effective alternative to bored tunnels and bridges, particularly in shallower waters, soft alluvial soils, and earthquake-prone areas. Successful implementation requires a thorough understanding of a wide variety of civil engineering disciplines and construction techniques. Immersed Tunnels brings together in one volume all aspects of immersed tunnels from initial feasibility and planning, through design and construction, to operation and maintenance. Get Valuable Insights into Immersed Tunnel Engineering from Expert Practitioners The book presents design and construction principles to give a full appreciation not only of what is involved in an immersed tunnel scheme but also how potential problems are dealt with and overcome. It examines important factors that have to be considered, particularly environmental implications and mechanical and electrical systems. It also gives practical examples of how specific techniques have been used in various projects and highlights issues that designers and constructors should be aware of. In addition, the book discusses operation and maintenance and reviews contractual matters. These aspects are described from the viewpoint of two experienced practitioners in the field who have a wealth of experience on immersed tunnel projects worldwide. As tunnels are increasingly being adopted as engineering solutions around the world, this unique and extensively illustrated reference explores the wide variety of immersed tunnel techniques available to designers and constructors. It provides essential insight for anyone involved, or seeking to be involved, with immersed tunnel projects.

Immersed in Paradise is the story of a beautiful young woman torn between love and an ambition to serve humanity. Her relationship with her high school sweet heart had endured, even though they were separated during college, and, after graduation three months before September 11, 2001, they each found jobs in law enforcement in Washington. All went well for two years, until Chuck accepted an appointment to become a Federal Agent at Fort Story. Reluctant to be separated, but not ready for marriage, she requested a transfer to work in Norfolk, and secured unpaid leave to attend a language school in Cost a Rica to think things over during his training. While in Central America, she traveled extensively, bonded with her host family, and disappointed several male admirers. She worked with disadvanted children,, sometimes with heart-rending results, and was overwhelmed by the impact of poverty on them, and those she saw while traveling. When her visa expired, she returned home with a greater appreciation of her life, and would forever cherish her memories of the surrogate family of charismatic Italians who had taken her into their home and their hearts!

"Over the next few decades, immersive media could fundamentally change the ways humans engage in entertainment, communication, and social interaction. The current volume takes a step towards understanding this potential paradigm shift, combining insights from pioneers of the field of ‘presence’ with bright young scholars who bring a new perspective." —Jeremy Bailenson, Stanford University, USA "This book provides an indispensable contribution to scholars in communication studies, computer science and psychology interested in the modes of being present in different media, and offers a careful historical and theoretical framework to the state-of-the-art research."—Anna Spagnolli, University of Padova, Italy "Bracken and Skalski have assembled a collection of works from the world’s foremost authorities on telepresence, a topic that has gone understudied for years. Someone has finally assembled a comprehensive volume on the subject. This book is a must not only for those interested in telepresence, but for mass communication scholars of all kinds."—Kenneth A. Lachan, University of Massachusetts, Boston, USA Immersed in Media highlights the increasing significance of telepresence in the media field. With contributions representing diverse disciplines, this volume delves into the topic through considerations of popular media types and their effects on users. Chapters in the work explain how the experience of presence can be affected by media technologies, including television, video games, film, and the Internet. They also discuss how presence experience mediates or moderates commonly studied media effects, such as enjoyment, persuasion, and aggression. These discussions are accompanied by overviews of the current state of presence research and its future. Ultimately, this work establishes the crucial role of telepresence in gaining a complete understanding of the uses and effects of popular media technologies.
