  • I’m always amazed where I find ideas and support for book projects, invariably in the oddest of places. Who’d have thought that the very earnest young man I interviewed for The 80% Minority five years ago from Mountain Equipment Co-Op would become a crucial member of my company’s team, let alone become my talented co-author. Sean’s retail expertise, but more importantly, his innate understanding of women consumers never ceases to amaze me. He teaches me every day.

  • I thank everyone who provided expert advice on technical matters and everyone who offered comments on the papers, book reviews, talks, interviews, and draft manuscript that eventually turned into this book. I have benefited enormously from their feedback. It not only improved the book significantly but guided the direction of my research in crucial ways. I would like to thank each one by name, but unfortunately I cannot. Even were they not too numerous to list, they include many audience members and reviewers whose names I do not know.

  • The idea of a book to help neurologists prepare for the oral part of the Neurology Board Examination stemmed from numerous exchanges with colleagues on how they prepared for this important exam. Nobody seemed to have the magic formula to maximize their chances of passing and there were wide disparities of opinion on what they considered the best preparation. Some recommendations were based on often inaccurate impressions, others were the distorted product of their stressful experience while taking the test.

  • Many have gone above and beyond the call of duty to make this special issue possible. The editorial team at Forced Migration Review has been the anchor on which we have all relied. The authors of the articles and those who submitted pieces we could not include deserve special recognition. Their work was done after-hours, often in the field during time they did not have. Ricardo Ernst, my fellow guest editor, has been an able partner responding with feed- back from all corners of the globe.

  • This guidance summarises current best practice. However, careful and detailed briefing and design development are crucial to ensure the best solution is developed for the particular needs of each school. The information in this document, therefore, is simply a starting point and a checklist for schools and their design teams, rather than a presentation of final designs.

  • The central idea of evidence-based education—that education policy and practice ought to be fashioned based on what is known from rigorous research—offers a compelling way to approach reform efforts. Recent federal trends reflect a growing enthusiasm for such change. Most visibly, the No Child Left Behind Act requires that “scientifically based [education] research” drive the use of federal education funds at the state and local levels. This emphasis is also reflected in a number of government and nongovernment initiatives across the country.

  • The Law did not produce a philosophical conversion for me as much as it created order in my thinking about liberty and just human conduct. Many philosophers have made important contributions to the discourse on liberty, Bastiat among them. But Bastiat’s greatest contribution is that he took the discourse out of the ivory tower and made ideas on liberty so clear that even the unlettered can understand them and statists cannot obfuscate them. Clarity is crucial to persuading our fellowman of the moral superiority of personal liberty....

  • We present a discriminative structureprediction model for the letter-to-phoneme task, a crucial step in text-to-speech processing. Our method encompasses three tasks that have been previously handled separately: input segmentation, phoneme prediction, and sequence modeling. The key idea is online discriminative training, which updates parameters according to a comparison of the current system output to the desired output, allowing us to train all of our components together.

  • A good dictionary contains not only many entries and a lot of information concerning each one of them, but also adequate means to reveal the stored information. Information access depends crucially on the quality of the index. We will present here some ideas of how a dictionary could be enhanced to support a speaker/writer to find the word s/he is looking for. To this end we suggest to add to an existing electronic resource an index based on the notion of association.
