Positively M.A.D. is a series of short stories about real people doing real things to have an impact. While the stories will leave you inspired, I was touched by the insights that follow each story. The insights provide you that author's view of the principles that guide people to making a difference.
How real are the women characters in Hindi films? This is something to debate about because values, ideals,
principles; morals have dominated the frame-work in which these films are placed. Thus, women rather than
being depicted as normal human beings are elevated to a higher position of being ideal who can commit no
wrong. Their grievances, desires, ambitions, feelings, perspectives are completely missing from the scene. They
are really portrayed as the „other‟ because they are shown as not belonging to this real and worldly life.
The State’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining effective internal control over
compliance with requirements of laws, regulations, contracts, and grants applicable to federal programs.
The main purpose of this report is to present the diversity and wealth of experience
that savings banks have developed throughout Europe in the field of socially respon-
sible activities. It illustrates this joint commitment with concrete case studies from
a range of European countries, offering an overview of the fields in which savings
banks are active, and providing examples of what they concretely do, how they inno-
vate to adhere to stakeholders’ needs and diversify their initiatives.
The main purpose of this report is to provide an update to a previous Royal
College of Psychiatrists document, Mental Health of Students in Higher
Education, published in 2003. Over the past decade, the demographics of the
student population have undergone many changes that are of relevance to
the provision of mental healthcare. The numbers of young people in higher
education have expanded and they have become more socially and culturally
The purpose of writing this book is to produce a text suitable for students
in Further and/or Higher Education who are required to learn how to
use the computer-aided design (CAD) software package AutoCAD®
2011. Students taking examinations based on CAD will find the contents
of the book of great assistance. The book is also suitable for those in
industry wishing to learn how to construct technical drawings with the
aid of AutoCAD 2011 and those who, having used previous releases of
AutoCAD, wish to update their skills to AutoCAD 2011....
Since the advent of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, systems with amagnetic field
intensity of 1.5 tesla (T) have been deemed the gold standard for different clinical applications
in all body areas. Ongoing advances in hardware and software have made
theseMRsystems increasingly compact, powerful and versatile, leading to the development
of higher magnetic field strength MRsystems (3.0 T) for use in clinical practice
and for research purposes. As usually occurs with a new technology, 3.0 T MR
imaging units will probably follow the same development trends in the years to
Silicon Carbide (SiC) and its polytypes have been a part of human civilization for a
long time; the technical interest of this hard and stable compound has been realized in
1885 and 1892 by Cowless and Acheson for grinding and cutting purpose, leading to its
manufacture on a large scale. The fundamental physical limitations of Si operation at
higher temperature and power are the strongest motivations for switching to wide
bandgap (WBG) semiconductors such as SiC for these applications.
The primary purpose of this book is to help scientists and engineers working intensively with computers to become more productive, have more fun, and increase the reliability of their investigations. Scripting in the Python programming language can be a key tool for reaching these goals [27,29]. The term scripting means diﬀerent things to diﬀerent people. By scripting I mean developing programs of an administering nature, mostly to organize your work, using languages where the abstraction level is higher and programming is more convenient than in Fortran, C, C++, or Java.
