Forensic Evidence: Science and the Criminal Law is intended to serve as an introduction
and guide to the appreciation and understanding of the significant historical,
contemporary, and future relationship between the world of the forensic sciences
and the criminal justice system. This book is not intended to be a close study of
forensic science, nor was it ever conceived as becoming one. It is devoted to a study
of the judicial response to uses of forensic science in the investigation, prosecution,
and defense of a crime....
Evidence-based practice has become a common expression in the helping
professions over the last decade. Beginning with medicine and moving to
fi elds such as psychology and social work, the number of books on evidencebased
practice has grown signifi cantly. What makes this book different? This
book is aimed at preservice and in-service school-based mental health service
providers, such as school counselors, school psychologists, and school
social workers. It is not a research book. It is a book about research-infused
This second edition of the popular book Evidence-based Sports Medicine builds on the features that made the first edition such a valuable text and provides a completely up-to-date tool for sports medicine physicians, family practitioners and orthopedic surgeons.

Evidence-based medicine (EBM) has been famously characterized by
David Sackett as the “conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current
best evidence in making decisions about individual care.” The central
in EBM of the importance of integrating individual clinical expertise
with the best available external evidence provides a helpful framework for
providers navigating the uncertainty inherent in patient care.
The evidence based medicine movement, which arose in McMaster University in
Canada in the 1990s, has steadily grown to influence health-care professions other
than medicine where it is recognised as evidence based practice. It is now widely
accepted as a fundamental tenet where health care is available in developed
country settings and the prevailing medical system is one of western medicine.
The importance of evidence in defining policy and practice in the UK health
system and others is acknowledged and, probably, enduring....
Research on the discovery of terms from corpora has focused on word sequences whose recurrent occurrence in a corpus is indicative of their terminological status, and has not addressed the issue of discovering terms when data is sparse. This becomes apparent in the case of noun compounding, which is extremely productive: more than half of the candidate compounds extracted from a corpus are attested only once. We show how evidence about established (i.e.
This paper focuses on mining the hyponymy (or is-a) relation from large-scale, open-domain web documents. A nonlinear probabilistic model is exploited to model the correlation between sentences in the aggregation of pattern matching results. Based on the model, we design a set of evidence combination and propagation algorithms.
For five months now all people who read at all have been reading about the horrible war that is devastating
Europe and shedding the best blood of the people of five great nations. In fact, they have had no time to read
anything else, and everything that is published about it is seized upon with great avidity. No wonder, then,
that Mr. James M. Beck's book, The Evidence in the Case, published by G. P. Putnam's Sons, which has
grown out of the article by him contributed to the New York Times Sunday Magazine, has been warmly
welcomed both here and in England as a...
A common theme in all criminal investigations, and one of the most important throughout this text, is the collection of physical evidence. While the topic of physical evidence is addressed in several chapters of this lecture, the chapter specifically focuses on the techniques used to identify, collect, package, and store particular types of physical evidence for subsequent examination.

The book is designed for rapid point-of-care consultation and is ideal for residents, fellows, and practitioners who operate in a fast-paced environment.
Word Sense Disambiguation remains one of the most complex problems facing computational linguists to date. In this paper we present a system that combines evidence from a monolingual WSD system together with that from a multilingual WSD system to yield state of the art performance on standard All-Words data sets. The monolingual system is based on a modiﬁcation of the graph based state of the art algorithm In-Degree.
We propose a novel algorithm for inducing semantic taxonomies. Previous algorithms for taxonomy induction have typically focused on independent classiﬁers for discovering new single relationships based on hand-constructed or automatically discovered textual patterns. By contrast, our algorithm ﬂexibly incorporates evidence from multiple classiﬁers over heterogenous relationships to optimize the entire structure of the taxonomy, using knowledge of a word’s coordinate terms to help in determining its hypernyms, and vice versa. ...
