Most available literature on cockroaches deals with domestic pests and the half dozen or
so other species that are easily and commonly kept in laboratories and museums. It reflects
the extensive efforts undertaken to find chinks in the armor of problematic cockroaches,
and the fact that certain species are ideal for physiological and behavioral investigations
under controlled conditions. These studies have been summarized in some
excellent books, including those by Guthrie and Tindall (1968), Cornwell (1968),Huber
et al. (1990), Bell and Adiyodi (1982a), and Rust et al. (1995).
In the fullness of time, our progress in understanding the natural order
advances through the process of science, and psychology is no exception.
To gain perspectives on this progress, one needs to take the long view of
a historian. In so doing, one will come to appreciate the role of great
ideas and creative individuals, while at the same time realizing that our
cumulative progress is greater than any one idea or individual.
We exploit and extend the Generative Lexicon Theory to develop a formal description of adnominal constituents in a lexicon which can deal with linguistic phenomena found in Japanese adnominal constituents. We classify the problematic behavior into "static disambiguation" and "dynamic disambiguation" tasks. Static disambiguation can be done using lexical information in a dictionary, whereas dynamic disambiguation requires inferences at the knowledge representation level. 1 Introduction Natural language processing must disambiguate polysemous constituents in the input sentences. ...
At its core, Driving Technical Change is a fantastic book about design patterns. In it, Terrence Ryan clearly outlines common, problematic personalities—“skeptics”—and provides proven solutions for bringing about progressive change. It is certainly an unfortunate fact of human behavior that people are oftentimes resistant to implementing best practices; however, using Terry’s book as a guide, you will now be able to identify why people push back against change and what you can do to remain successful in the face of adversity....
Birthmarks are among the most common types of anomalies encountered by the pediatrician
in practice. Moreover, they are a source of significant concern for parents
regardless of whether they are associated with an underlying systemic abnormality.
Pediatricians are often called upon in the neonatal period to establish the diagnosis
and direct management. Recognition of the types of birthmarks that require additional
evaluation or herald a potentially problematic course is essential when examining an
The heightened interest in pain management is making the need for appropriate boundary setting
within the clinician–patient relationship even more apparent. Unfortunately, it is impossible to
determine before hand, with any degree of certainty, who will become problematic users of pre-
scription medications. With this in mind, a parallel is drawn between the chronic pain management
paradigm and our past experience with problems identifying the “at-risk” individuals from an
infectious disease model.
