Guoan Luo Systems Biology for Traditional Chinese Medicine

The application of systems biology methods to Traditional Chinese Medicine Emphasizing the harmony of the human body with the environment, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has evolved over thousands of years. It is a systemic theory derived from clinical experience, the philosophy of holism and systematology, and the belief that man is an integral part of nature. Systems Biology for Traditional Chinese Medicine describes how the latest methods in systems biology can be applied to TCM, providing a comprehensive resource for the modernization and advancement of TCM as well as general drug discovery efforts. It is the first comprehensive work to propose a system-to-system research methodology to study the interaction between TCM and the human body and its applications in drug research and development. Using three popular traditional Chinese medicines—Shuanglongfang, Qingkailing, and Liushenwan—as examples, the authors set forth case examples demonstrating how to find material groups, perform efficacy screenings, and conduct safety evaluations of TCM. The book also: Describes the mechanisms of TCM at the molecular and systems levels using chemomics, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and bioinformatics Places modern scientific technologies within the context of TCM, helping drug researchers improve experimental designs and strategies Illustrates how a systems biology approach is compatible with TCM's traditional, holistic therapeutic strategies and treatment modalities Presents topics of current interest, such as integrated global systems biology and the application of chemometrics research to herbal medicines This book not only opens a new pathway for the continued development of TCM, but also for systems biology. In addition, it fosters collaboration and discussion among Eastern and Western scientists by applying systems biology to TCM.

Hugo Kubinyi Scaffold Hopping in Medicinal Chemistry

This first systematic treatment of the concept and practice of scaffold hopping shows the tricks of the trade and provides invaluable guidance for the reader's own projects. The first section serves as an introduction to the topic by describing the concept of scaffolds, their discovery, diversity and representation, and their importance for finding new chemical entities. The following part describes the most common tools and methods for scaffold hopping, whether topological, shape-based or structure-based. Methods such as CATS, Feature Trees, Feature Point Pharmacophores (FEPOPS), and SkelGen are discussed among many others. The final part contains three fully documented real-world examples of successful drug development projects by scaffold hopping that illustrate the benefits of the approach for medicinal chemistry. While most of the case studies are taken from medicinal chemistry, chemical and structural biologists will also benefit greatly from the insights presented here.

Fedir Androshchuk Images of power. Byzantium and Nordic Coinage centure 995-1035

This study is devoted to a group of Scandinavian imitations of a type of miliaresia of Basil II and Constantine VIII struck between AD 977 and 989. The imitations were produced during the first half of eleventh century, i.e. later than the circulation of their Byzantine prototypes. Apart from Scandinavia, similar imitations were struck in the area of the Taman peninsula in southern Russia. What was the reason for imitating these Byzantine coins? Did the imitators and people of Scandinavia understand the effigies on these coins? Why were some Anglo-Saxon and Byzantine coins chosen as the prototypes for the oldest Scandinavian coinage? Is there any connection between the Scandinavian and Russian imitations of Basil II and Constantine VHI's coins? This book addresses these questions and contains a catalogue with descriptions of all of the types of Scandinavian imitations of Byzantine coins, and details relating to dating and find circumstances, as well as plates with enlarged photographs of the coins studied by the author.

Sharon Leece China Living

No longer is Chinese style considered traditional. In this rapidly-changing nation, the pioneering spirit of a new China manifests itself in cutting-edge design and architecture. An insatiable appetite for creative new directions is leading designers to infuse their work with a fresh vision rooted in Chinese culture but totally of the moment. The traditional aesthetic values of elegance, subtlety and proportion and a deep-rooted sense of China's ancient culture and art are still evident-but modern materials and techniques now form the cornerstones of new design movements."China Living" looks at the full array of architecture and interiors, from high-rises to artistic retreats in former industrial buildings to refurbished courtyard homes-the array of lifestyle and design options in China is as varied as the country itself. From Beijing's creative formalism to Shanghai's energetic glamour and Hong Kong's latest technological and cultural fusion - all of the homes in this book exemplify different facets of an emerging identity that is uniquely Chinese and yet has global appeal.

Anthony Scaramucci Hopping over the Rabbit Hole. How Entrepreneurs Turn Failure into Success

Develop the Scaramucci mindset that drives entrepreneurial success Hopping over the Rabbit Hole chronicles the rise, fall, and resurgence of SkyBridge Capital founder Anthony Scaramucci, giving you a primer on how to thrive in an unpredictable business environment. The sheer number of American success stories has created a false impression that becoming an entrepreneur is a can't-miss endeavor—but nothing could be further from the truth. In the real world, an entrepreneur batting .150 goes directly to the Hall of Fame. Things happen. You make a bad hire, a bad strategic decision, or suffer the consequences of an unforeseen market crash. You can't control what happens to your business, but you can absolutely control how you react, and how you turn bumps in the road into ramps to the sky. Anthony Scaramucci has been there and done that, again and again, and has ultimately come out on top; in this book, he shares what he wishes he knew then. Your chances of becoming an overnight billionaire are approximately the same as your chances of being signed to the NBA. Success is hard work, and anxiety, and tiny hiccups that can turn into disaster with a single misstep. This book shows you how to use adversity to your ultimate advantage, and build the skills you need to respond effectively to the unexpected. Learn how to deal with unforeseen events Map a strategic backup plan, and then a backup-backup plan Train yourself to react in the most productive way Internalize the lessons learned by a leader in entrepreneurship For every 23-year-old billionaire who just created a new way to send a picture on a phone, there are countless others who have failed, and failed miserably.

Maria Rudova Chinese Popular Prints / Китайская народная картина. Альбом

For many centuries the Chinese have decorated their homes on New Year's Eve with brightly-coloured pictures printed on paper, which were made specially for the occasion. In the nineteenth century the prints received the name of nianhua or New Year pictures. The emergence of nianhua as an art form was due largely to technical advances in the field of xylography, or woodblock printing, and to its various applications and growing popular-ity. Its origin can be traced back to the fifth century A. D. when printed icons and Taoist amulets somewhat similar to nianhua began to be produced in Buddhist and Taoist monasteries. Classical Chinese painting also exerted a great influence on the development of woodblock engraving and, consequently, on nianhua art. Traditional Chinese painting, which is closely linked to calligraphy, developed a certain repertory of subjects and artistic devices which were later absorbed by nianhua art. Some historical processes which gradually led to the emergence of this art form can be illustrated by a number of works of art preserved from the past. Although only a few of them have reached us, and there remain substantial temporal gaps between the surviving works, they nevertheless may be used as examples reflecting a general course of nianhua development as an independent art form. These common tendencies are the selection of subject-matter covering different aspects of Chinese life, the choice of artistic means based on simplified form of xylography (con...
