Research into cellulose nanocrystals is currently in an exponential growth phase, with research into potential applications now strengthened by recent advances in nanomanufacturing. The possibility of routine commercial production of these advanced materials is now becoming a reality. Cellulose Nanocrystals: Properties, Production and Applications provides an in-depth overview of the materials science, chemistry and physics of cellulose nanocrystals, and the technical development of advanced materials based on cellulose nanocrystals for industrial and medical applications. Topics covered include: • A comprehensive treatment of the structure, morphology and synthesis of cellulose nanocrystals. • The science and engineering of producing cellulose nanocrystals and the challenges involved in nanomanufacturing on a large industrial scale. • Surface/interface modifications of cellulose nanocrystals for the development of novel biomaterials with attractive structural and functional properties. • The scientific bases for developing cellulose-based nanomaterials with advanced functionalities for industrial/medical applications and consumer products. • Discussions on the (i) reinforcing potential of cellulose nanocrystals in polymer nanocomposites, (ii) utilization of these nanocrystals as efficient templates for developing tunable photonic materials, as well as (iii) applications in sustainable electronics and biomedicine. Cellulose Nanocrystals: Properties, Production and Applications will appeal to audiences in the physical, chemical and biological sciences as well as engineering disciplines. It will be of critical interest to industrialists seeking to develop sustainable new materials for the advanced industrial economies of the 21st century, ranging from adaptive “smart” packaging materials, to new chiral, mesoporous materials for optoelectronics and photonics , to high-performance nanocomposites for structural applications.

From the A-list bodyworker, trainer, and alignment expert dubbed “the body whisperer” by Goop comes Taller, Slimmer, Younger—a powerfully simple daily foam roller routine to help you sculpt longer, leaner muscles, stand an inch taller, look ten pounds slimmer, and renew your body and mind. Are you ready to roll? ALIGN YOUR BODY, ALIGN YOUR LIFE There’s a new buzzword in the fitness world: fascia. It’s the connective tissue that wraps around your muscles and organs and helps keep everything in place. But in our increasingly busy and often stressful lives, tension and toxins are often stored within our fascia, resulting in serious long-term consequences including poor posture, excess weight, acute anxiety, and chronic pain. Fitness and alignment expert Lauren Roxburgh—who has worked with such stars as Gwyneth Paltrow, Gabby Reece, Melissa Rauch, and Baron Davis—has the solution to keep your fascia supple, flexible, and strong. Using only a foam roller, you can reshape and elongate your muscles for a leaner, younger look, while also releasing tension, breaking up scar tissue, and ridding yourself of toxins. In just fifteen minutes a day, Roxburgh’s 21-day program will guide you through a simple series of unique rolling techniques that target ten primary areas of the body, including the shoulders, chest, arms, legs, hips, butt, back, and stomach. The result is a healthy, balanced, aligned body that not only looks but feels fantastic. Advance praise for Taller, Slimmer, Younger “As an athlete with a lifelong passion for fitness and wellness, I am always looking to get an edge in my body, and Lauren Roxburgh has helped me do just that. Lauren’s philosophy will rejuvenate your body and spirit, helping you look and feel lighter and brighter, reducing stress and tension, while dramatically improving your stance in your body and also in your life!”—Gabby Reece, U.S. beach volleyball champion “This book is sure to become the body bible for anyone who wants to live a healthy, fit, and balanced life.”—Melissa Rauch, actress, The Big Bang Theory and True Blood “Lauren’s method has rejuvenated my spirit, giving me more energy and strength, which has allowed me to perform better on and off the court.”—Baron Davis, two-time NBA all-star “Lauren’s method sculpts the body’s soft tissues, slimming and streamlining whatever part you work. She’s a ‘body whisperer!’”—Goop “If you’ve never tried foam rolling, I highly recommend it. [Lauren Roxburgh’s] program is designed to improve posture, release tension and stress, activate and strengthen the core, and heal from the inside out. When I was a model, I used a foam roller to lengthen my muscles. I’m so excited to get back into it once I give birth! Oh, and Goop dubbed her ‘The Body Whisperer.’ Enough said.”—MollySims.com

PAIN? POOR POSTURE? ANXIETY? CHRONIC EXHAUSTION? The issue may be your tissue! Your connective tissue, also known as fascia, may be the primary source of your problems. Since fascial restrictions don't show up on medical scans (X-rays, MRIs, etc) they are commonly overlooked as potential causes for pain and dysfunction but they wreak havoc on the body. This book will teach you the basics of fascia and share many examples of how Myofascial Release (MFR) as taught by John F. Barnes, PT can restore the fascial system to optimal health and function.

A hilarious and biting memoir from the actor, comedian and Saturday Night Live alumni David Spade. David Spade is best known for his harsh “Hollywood” Minute Sketches on SNL, his starring roles in movies like Joe Dirt and Tommy Boy, and his seven-year stint as Dennis Finch on the series Just Shoot Me. Now, with a wit as dry as the weather in his home state of Arizona, the “comic brat extraordinaire” tells his story in Almost Interesting. First Taking fans back to his childhood as a wannabe cool younger brother and recounting his excruciating road-tour to fame—when he was regularly mistaken for a ten year-old, Spade then dishes about his time crisscrossing the country as a comedian, for low-paying gigs and dragging along his mother’s old suitcase full of props. He also covers his years on SNL during the beloved Rock/Sandler/Farley era of the 1990s, including his close working relationship and friendship with Chris Farley and brags about the ridiculous perks that fame has brought into his life, including the constant fear of being fired, a crazy ex-assistant who attacked him while he was sleeping, a run-in with Eddie Murphy on the mean streets of Beverly Hills, and of course an endless supply of hot chicks. Sometimes dirty, always funny, and as sharp as a tack, Almost Interesting reminds you why David Spade is one of our generation’s favorite funny guys.

"Alejandro Chaban, creator of the Yes You Can! diet plan, shares his seven essential steps for shedding emotional weight in this deeply personal and inspirational account of how he mastered his thoughts to heal his soul. Before Alejandro Chaban became a health and wellness icon and one of the most trusted Hispanic celebrities, he had an unhealthy relationship with food and his self-image. He suffered from obesity as a child which led to ruthless bullying and, subsequently, anorexia and bulimia. But even after he lost 150 pounds, he realized his newfound figure did not bring him happiness. He was still weighed down by the negative feelings that he had always associated with food. With this revelation came a life-altering shift in his mindset. He realized that he needed to make the change for himself and not for anyone else. From that day forward, a weight was lifted from his mind, and that made all the difference. In Think Skinny, Feel Fit, Alejandro shares the seven steps that were essential in helping him master his mind and lose emotional weight. These steps, grounded in positive thinking and self-commitment, have helped countless people to start living happier, healthier lives. Readers will learn the effects of emotional weight and how to identify mental obstacles, set goals and create affirmations, change your habits for good, and so much more. And if you need a little extra encouragement, Chaban provides personal anecdotes and success stories to give that extra boost and help you create a positive change in your day-to-day life. Now, you can say "Yes!" to taking care of yourself the way you deserve"--
