Welcome to Black Cat Weekly #23. Lots of good stuff this time—highlighted by a novel from Golden Age mystery author Rufus King, Duenna for a Murder. Plus a few novellas, and lots of great short stories, a solve-it-yourself mystery from Hal Charles, and great selections from Michael Bracken (Laird Long’s “Taken for a Ride”—which qualifies as both a mysery and a fantasy story) and Barb Goffman (Michael Allan Mallory’s “Random Harvest”). On the science fiction side, the Cynthia Ward Presents story is missing this week, but that’s only because we have a fantastic alternate-history story from Cynthia herself! Check out her “On Stony Ground.” Plus an epic disaster story from Allan Danzig, a fantasy from Unknown by Lester del Rey and James H. Beard, a space-based tale by Richard Wilson, and a miniature military SF story from Larry Tritten. Here’s the complete lineup: Mysteries / Suspense / Adventure: “Soul Searching,” by Laird Long [short story] “A Fine Kettle of Fish,” by Hal Charles [Solve-It-Yourself Mystery] “Dead Wrong,” by Frank Kane [short story] “Taken for a Ride,” by Hulbert Footner [short novel] “Random Harvest,” by Michael Allan Mallory [Barb Goffman Presents short story] Duenna to a Murder, by Rufus King [novel] Science Fiction & Fantasy: “On Stony Ground,” by Cynthia Ward [short story] “Corrigan’s Homunculi,” by Larry Tritten [short story] “Carillon of Skulls,” by Lester del Rey and James H. Beard [short story] “Abel Baker Camel,” by Richard Wilson [short story] “The Great Nebraska Sea,” by Allan Danzig [short story]
Mallory's excited to play basketball, but even when she tries she can't make a basket. Will she let her teammates down? Or is there more to being part of a team than winning the game?
Oushuu Hiizumi, Akina's ancestor and head of the Hiizumi clan of eld, has descended in a form only the gods could have predicted! At last, the truth behind Oushuu's tuning of the branch family is revealed—a tragic tale of a man with powers too great for any mortal to bear, and the loneliness that ate away at his soul. And in another shocking reveal, Enjin Hiizumi's shadowy origins finally come to light!
Many people have met their end while facing the She-Devil and her sword... and usually, that's the end of it. But now, Sonja is compelled by a minor god to compensate a man for the death of his eldest son. To settle the score, she'll have to retrieve a family heirloom from a vicious beast... but it could be worse. (After all, some heroes are forced to perform twelve labors, not just one!) Monsters, treasure, swordplay and gods -- all in "The Axe at the Top of the Mountain!"
A Redactional Study of the Book of Isaiah 13-23 argues that a series of programmatic additions were made to the oracles concerning the nations in Isaiah 13-23 during the late-exilic period by the same circle of writers who were responsible for Isaiah 40-55. These additions were made to create continuity between the ancient oracles against the nations from the Isaiah tradition and the future fate of the same nations as the late-exilic redactor(s) foresaw. The additions portray a two-sided vision concerning the nations. One group of passages depicts a positive turn for certain nations while the other group of passages continues to pronounce doom against the remaining nations. This double-sided vision is set out first in Isaiah 14 surrounding the famous taunt against the fallen tyrant. 14:1-2, before the taunt, paints the broad picture of the future return of the exiles and the attachment of the gentiles to the people of Israel. After the taunt and other sayings of YHWH against his enemies, 14:26-27 extends the sphere of the underlying theme of 14:4b-25a, namely YHWH's judgement against boastful and tyrannical power(s), to all nations and the whole earth. The two sides of this vision are then applied accordingly to the rest of the oracles concerning nations in chapters 13-23. To the nations that have experienced similar disasters as the people of Israel, words of hope in line with 14:1-2 were given. To the nations that still possessed some prominence and reasons to be proud, words of doom in line with 14:26-27 were decreed.

When Deadpool cashes in by franchising out his look, Stingray, Masacre, Solo, Foolkiller, Terror and Slapstick suit up as the Mercs for Money! But theyre all about to learn that Deadpool is a terrible boss, and the risky missions Wade assigns just arent worth the cash hes (barely) paying! Before long the M4M are revolting, and a new squad forms with Domino calling the shots! Then, remember back during the original Secret Wars, when Deadpool found the symbiotic costume that would later bond with Spider-Man? No? Well, the costume remembers and months later when Spidey rejects it, the costume tracks down DP again! Witness an untold story from Wade Wilsons past as Deadpool goes back in black!
When Tricia Bennett, the First Daughter of the country's first "green" president, arrives at Walla Walla, Natalie is assigned to show her the ropes. Walla Walla is going green this summer, so Tricia should fit right in. But when a national newspaper shows up on camp grounds and finds a pile of used Styrofoam containers behind the girls' bunk, somehow Natalie gets the blame. And you'll never believe who the culprit is!
The present work describes an integrated computational model of airflow as well as particle dispersion, breakage and deposition in a Dry Powder Inhaler, DPI. The integrated model combines computational fluid dynamics, CFD, an Eulerian/Lagrangian model for particle motion and deposition, and a particle-wall collision model, which are employed to determine the parameters of a multi-compartment model of the DPI. Dynamic population balance models are solved in the compartment model to determine the breakup and deposition of particle agglomerates in the DPI during inhalation. This approach provides detailed information on the dispersion and deposition of powder particles in the DPI connecting formulation properties to key outflow features, e.g. emitted mass and fine particle fraction.
CO2 capture and sequestration (CCS) is a major means to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, especially from centralized energy conversion sites. Many studies have been conducted either on the CO2 capture side or on the sequestration side, but research on CO2 transport, which connects the capture side and the sequestration side, is rather limited. CO2 capture sites and sequestration sites are usually not geographically located in the same region, thus planning and design of CO2 transport infrastructure must be considered before capture and sequestration activities are conducted. Previously, some studies have been conducted to address the optimal planning problem of CO2 pipelines network via a source-sink match approach, which is applicable to early stages of CCS development when the total amount of CO needed to be transported is rather small. However, in scenarios with large amount of CO to be transported, the source-sink match approach appears to be less efficient. In this manuscript, we propose a superstructure based modelling and optimization framework for optimal planning of CO2 transport pipelines network, where all CO2 emissions sources and sequestrations sites can be connected by pipelines, and pump stations can also be built along pipelines to maintain the pressure of CO transported. We also provide a case study of a region in North China, with 45 emissions sources and four sequestration sites. Different configurations of pipelines network are illustrated in scenarios with low, medium, and high CO2 capture rates.
