One morning, long ago, John woke up and decided he wanted to write a book on theories
and techniques in counseling and psychotherapy. He thought, “Of all the classes I
teach, I love teaching theories and techniques best, so I should write a textbook.”
John then began using a cognitive self-instructional problem-solving strategy (see
Chapter 8). He identified the problems associated with existing theories and techniques
textbooks and formulated possible solutions.
Clear differences between the missions and goals of the press and those of the military, particularly centering around the issues of access and operational security, make historical tensions between the two unsurprising and complete avoidance of tension unlikely. However, significant overlaps, including core goals of
Students can learn historical and geographical terms in context. With high-interest history and geography articles even below average students and reluctant learners will understand words such as archeologist, fossil, emperor, eon, nomads, glaciers, dipolmat, artifact, and more.
Our first chapter puts LTE into its historical context, and lays out its requirements and key
technical features. We begin by reviewing the architectures of UMTS and GSM, and
by introducing some of the terminology that the two systems use. We then summarize
the history of mobile telecommunication systems, discuss the issues that have driven the
development of LTE, and show how UMTS has evolved first into LTE and then into an
enhanced version known as LTE-Advanced. The chapter closes by reviewing the standardization
process for LTE....
Everyone is familiar with money. Yet few realise that currently contentious
issues and financial difficulties are not new. On the contrary, most are firmly
rooted in the past and when examined help to put current economic problems
into historical context.
This book presents a detailed history of money from Charlemagne’s reform
in approximately AD 800 to the end of the Silver Wars in 1896. It also offers a
summary of twentieth century events and an analysis of how the past relates to
Six Sigma is one of the most important and popular developments in the quality field. It has saved huge amounts of money and improved the customer experience for a large number of organizations across the world, yet it is applied in an inconsistent and often reductive fashion in many companies. This has led to criticism in the literature and a number of abandoned implementations. This study guide is designed to provide an overview of the key elements, important historical context and current debates in the field of Six Sigma. It aims to give a coherent view of the underlying principles,...
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a big field, and this is a big book. We have tried to explore the
full breadth of the field, which encompasses logic, probability, and continuous mathematics;
perception, reasoning, learning, and action; and everything from microelectronic devices to
robotic planetary explorers. The book is also big because we go into some depth.
The subtitle of this book is “A Modern Approach.
English literature is an interesting subject which provides us a broad view
of England with the trandition culture, and people within a concrete social
and historical context.
The life and strange surprizing adventures of Robinson Crusoe is a novel
by Daniel Defoe, first published in 1719, and sometimes regarded as the
first novel in English.
This study guide is designed to provide an overview of the key elements, important historical context and current debates in the field of Quality Management. It aims to give a coherent view of the underlying principles of quality management, and how these relate to practical application in a range of organizations. The tools and techniques which support the principles are not covered in detail in this guide, More information on these can be found in the companion guide: “Six Sigma: Principles and Practices” also available at Bookboon.com....
Model based testing is the most powerful technique for testing hardware and software systems. Models in Hardware Testing describes the use of models at all the levels of hardware testing. The relevant fault models for nanoscaled CMOS technology are introduced, and their implications on fault simulation, automatic test pattern generation, fault diagnosis, memory testing and power aware testing are discussed.
The world suffers no shortage of accounting texts. The
many I’ve read over the past 25 years have helped me audit,
prepare, use, and explain corporate financial statements.
Missing in this lettered journey has been a work that
provides context for accounting’s six divisive issues: inflation,
volatility, intangibles, debt, options, and earnings. A brief history
of accounting can fill this void.
Students and practitioners study textbooks designed to explain
the how’s of accounting.
robably the best introduction to our book is the conclusion of another
book. The other book is Something New Under the Sunby historian J. R.
McNeill argues that the Preacher in Ecclesiastes remains mostly
but not completely right—there is indeed “nothing new under the sun” in
the realm of vanity and wickedness. But the place of humankind within the
natural world is not what it was. The enormity and devastating impact of the
human scale on the rest of creation really is a new thing under the sun. And
it greatly amplifies the consequences of vanity and wickedness.
Th is book examines how Isaac Newton’s reputation was utilized, and altered,
by British men of science in biographies and historical studies published
between 1820 and 1870.2 A detailed analysis of these works and the contexts
in which they were produced demonstrates the contemporary signifi cance of
these portraits for the scientifi c community.
This book deals with an Ayyubid-Mamluk Egyptian jurist's attempt to come to terms with the potential conflict between power, represented in the state, and authority, represented in the schools of law, particularly where one school enjoys a privileged status with the state. It deals with the history of the relationship between the schools of law, particularly in Mamluk Egypt, in the context of the running history of Islamic law from the formative period during which ijtihad was the dominant hegemony into the post-formative period during which taqlid came to dominate....
.ETHICS AND THE UNIVERSITY
Ethics and the University brings together two closely related topics, the practice of ethics in the university (“academic ethics”) and the teaching of practical or applied ethics in the university.
MACROECONOMICS: HYPOTHESES, HISTORICAL CONTEXTS AND ECONOMIC POLICIES
Hiểu biết các lý thuyết kinh tế vĩ mô, điểm mạnh, yếu và đặc biệt là tính thời điểm lịch sử của chúng. Vận dụng học thuyết nào vào hoàn cảnh kinh tế xã hội của Việt Nam để phát triển nền kinh tế bền vững trong dài hạn, chứ không phải là "quá nóng" trong ngắn hạn hoặc liên tục trục trặc trong dài hạn là nhiệm vụ rất quan trọng của các nhà nghiên cứu và hoạch định chính sách kinh tế vĩ mô....
The global environment is changing rapidly, partly in response to economic
globalization. These global changes are clearly evident at the local level, even in
the quality of air that people breath. In some high income countries air quality
has been improving, due to a combination of de-industrialization, improved
technologies and environmental regulation. However, advances in the science of
epidemiology suggest that even air that would until recently have been
considered ‘clean’ may contain pollutants that are hazardous to people’s health.
would like to introduce this encyclopedia of psychology
by focusing on both twenty-first century
and more distant historical contexts, while additionally
highlighting the scope and depth of the work of
psychologists, their students, and their supporters.
As reading these volumes will show, psychology is a
diverse and large field. It is also a science. I remind
readers that most of the research described in these
volumes is completed through the silent contributions
of tens of thousands of volunteers as well as
nonhuman animal participants.
It is not always evident why economic growth takes root in one area over another.
Even within a single region, some communities may outpace their neighbors in
securing the economic growth that leads to an enhanced quality of life. Although
some commonalities in these situations may be identifiable, many communities
possess similar assets and implement apparently similar economic development
plans, yet have experiences that are vastly different—perhaps even diametrically
Photograph* of Faith from space show no political boundaries, reminding us that national distinctions arc
man made. But the agencies responsible for those pictures, other missions to Earth orbit, and probes to deep space
are inevitably national or multinational. Each has its own set of constituencies, procedures, capabilities, and
