Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

Psychology for As Level Psychology Press
This thoroughly revised and updated second edition of Psychology for AS Level takes into account all the amendments to the AQA-A syllabus since the last edition was produced. The text is mapped more closely to the specification, making this an ideal resource for students following the course. This edition has responded effectively to changes made by AQA to the exam format. It is now necessary for students to demonstrate understanding of twenty-five key research topic areas, through knowledge of related experiments and studies. Questions may require students to present appropriate studies either in APFCC format (Aims, Procedures, Findings, Conclusions and Criticisms), or with awareness of the wider theoretical and methodological context. Both methods of presentation are featured in Psychology for AS Level (Second Edition), with twenty-five Key Studies mentioned discursively throughout the text supported by new stimulus material, and in APFCC format in an appendix at the back for easy reference. AQA have also identified a list of specific Key Terms which students may be required to define. Definitions of these Key Terms are highlighted in boxes on relevant pages, as well as identified in the comprehensive glossary at the back. In addition to encompassing the most up-to-date syllabus developments, this book retains both the easy writing style and effective features of the previous edition. It includes discussion points, illustrations, case studies and detailed chapter summaries to enhance the study of the six key areas of memory, childhood attachment, stress, abnormality, social influence and research methods and consequently will be a valuable textbook for any student covering psychology at AS level.
Just-in-Time Algebra Review: A new feature in this edition are algebra "boxes" in the margin that remind students of key facts and procedures, such as the quadratic formula, at the point in the material that such procedures will be useful. For students needing additional work on algebra topics, an extensive algebra review is included in an appendix. This appendix includes worked examples and applied practice problems for the student. Students are advised throughout the text when it might be appropriate to consult this material. |Focused Topic Coverage: The focus of the text has been sharpened by eliminating topics not covered in many courses. Chapter 8, Sequences and Series, and Chapter 9, Trigonometric Functions, of the sixth edition have been removed from the seventh edition.|Realistic Examples: Each topic in the textbook is motivated by realistic worked examples. Many new practical examples have been added to the Seventh Edition, and many existing examples have been modified throughout the text. In particular, examples introducing key topics such as the limit, the derivative, and the integral have been carefully rewritten with an eye toward realism.|NetTutor: Now, let your students access real-time math tutoring on-line!

NetTutor is FREE and an invaluable aid for all students: it's the study partner who always has the answer.|Applications: Solving applied problems is the core focus of an applied calculus course. The authors believe that topics should be applied to practical problems very soon after they are introduced, and a strong attempt has been made to put this belief into effect in the eighth edition. methods are provided for dealing both with both routine computations and practical problems. These problem-solving methods and strategies are introduced in examples and are followed by both end of section exercises and extensive set of review problems at the end of each chapter. All concepts covered in the text are applied to a variety of practical situations from business and economics and the social, managerial, environmental, and life sciences. For easy reference, an applications index is also provided.|Referenced Examples and Exercises: Every chapter includes a number of referenced examples and problems that are based on journal articles or information found in texts. Some of these problems are routine and others challenging, but all are tied to issues of practical interest relating mathematics to the real world. |Exercises: Always a recognized strength in earlier editions, this text provides students with ample opportunities to practice problem-solving strategies. All exercise sets are carefully graded so that the more routine exercises are placed first in the exercise set, followed by more challenging exercises and applications. Exercise sets follow each section, and Review Exercises follow each chapter. |Writing Exercises: Every exercise set includes writing problems, delineated by an icon, that are related to issues raised in the examples and exercises. These problems ask students to communicate about mathematics using words, not just symbols. Additionally, they challenge students' critical thinking skills and invite them to research topics on their own. Usually, there is no set answer to these problems, and individual responses may vary. |Definitions: Key concepts and definitions are set off in shaded boxes for easy referencing by the student|Think About It Essays: Each chapter ends with an essay designed to introduce modeling procedures based on referenced journal articles. These essays provide background information on an applied situation and then invite students to answer a series of "bite-sized" questions culminating in a question of some importance in the social, managerial, or biological sciences. In this way, students are introduced to ideas and methods that might otherwise be beyond the scope of the text. Answers to these problems are found in the Instructor's Manual. |Technology: The use of technology in conjunction with this text is entirely optional. In the Seventh Edition of the text, Explore! boxes were introduced to guide students in the use of graphing utilities to study the concepts and procedures of calculus. These Explore! boxes have been extensively revised in this edition, and new explorations included. Additionally, each chapter ends with an Explore! Update, which contains hints for using a graphing utility and solutions to selected Explore! box exercise. Each problem set also includes numerous problems involving the use of a calculator that are denoted by a calculator icon.
The Molecular Basis of Cancer Springer, Berlin
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
This book aims to describe the current state of knowledge and possible future developments in a number of major areas of research into the nature, causes and treatment of cancer. The contributing authors have been encouraged to discuss their subjects at the molecular level. It will become apparent to the reader that considerable developments in the understanding of the fundamental nature of cancer, in molecular terms, are constantly being made. This is particularly the case in the area of oncogene research where differences between tumour and normal cells can now be defined in terms of altered expression of DNA sequences. An understanding of the methods available for detecting cancer, of the process of carcinogenesis and of the means available for treating cancer can only be achieved with a precise knowledge of the basic biochemical and molecular processes involved. Since it is all to easy for the research scientist to become totally absorbed within the specialised area of research in which he is involved, the first chapter is an attempt to encourage a broader field of vision by introducing the clinician's view of the cancer problem, which illustrates the broad spectrum of basic problems that need to be solved by the cancer researcher.
Testing Cahps Health Plan Perf Random House Children`s Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
The Agency for Health Care Policy and Research, now the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), initiated the Consumer Assessment of Health Plans Study (CAHPS) project in 1995 to develop and test methods to provide consumers with comparative information on performance of health plans as reported by current health plan enrollees. In collaboration with the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), RAND conducted a CAHPS demonstration with the Florida Medicaid program to test applications of plan performance reports in the Medicaid sector. Both paper and computer-based report formats were designed and tested in field applications in Volusia County, Florida. Evidence was found that failures in any of four dimension of a consumer information strategy can impede consumer use of the information. These dimensions are (1) the types, amounts, and display of the plan performance information itself; (2) design of the report medium, including the paper report document and the software and hardware of the Decision Helper; (3) the physical environment in which the information is provided to potential users; and (4) timing of information availability relative to when plan choices are being made. Both appropriate timing and ease of use of plan performance information influenced whether Florida Medicaid consumers used the reports. For the computer-based system, computer literacy was not a barrier for Medicaid recipients, but attention to details in the system design and physical environment were critically important factors. Results of this work have been applied in subsequent demonstrations with the New Jersey and Iowa Medicaid programs.
Software for Dependable Systems National Academies Press
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
The focus of Software for Dependable Systems is a set of fundamental principles that underlie software system dependability and that suggest a different approach to the development and assessment of dependable software. Unfortunately, it is difficult to assess the dependability of software. The field of software engineering suffers from a pervasive lack of evidence about the incidence and severity of software failures; about the dependability of existing software systems; about the efficacy of existing and proposed development methods; about the benefits of certification schemes; and so on. There are many anecdotal reports, which-although often useful for indicating areas of concern or highlighting promising avenues of research-do little to establish a sound and complete basis for making policy decisions regarding dependability. The committee regards claims of extraordinary dependability that are sometimes made on this basis for the most critical of systems as unsubstantiated, and perhaps irresponsible. This difficulty regarding the lack of evidence for system dependability leads to two conclusions: (1) that better evidence is needed, so that approaches aimed at improving the dependability of software can be objectively assessed, and (2) that, for now, the pursuit of dependability in software systems should focus on the construction and evaluation of evidence. The committee also recognized the importance of adopting the practices that are already known and used by the best developers; this report gives a sample of such practices. Some of these (such as systematic configuration management and automated regression testing) are relatively easy to adopt; others (such as constructing hazard analyses and threat models, exploiting formal notations when appropriate, and applying static analysis to code) will require new training for many developers. However valuable, though, these practices are in themselves no silver bullet, and new techniques and methods will be required in order to build future software systems to the level of dependability that will be required.
Liquid Steel Its Manufacture and Cost (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from Liquid Steel Its Manufacture and Cost In preparing this treatise I have attempted, with the help of Mr. Gladwyn, to set forth and compare the various items of cost in the different processes of steel manufacture of any commercial importance. Its perusal, I hope, will stimulate a closer study of this most essential side of steel manufacture. It is generally accepted that where metallurgical and engineering research does not aim at improving the quality and reducing the cost of steel products, its business interest to the manufacturer is of little moment. Several standard works on the metallurgy of steel, to which reference has been made in the following pages, deal in some measure with the cost of steel manufacture, but so far as I am aware no previous attempt has been made to compare systematically the costs of all the steel-making processes, having in view their metallurgical and engineering significance. It is my belief, as the outcome of several years' experience in the construction and management of modern steel works, that the facts given herein will be welcomed by steel manufacturers, managers, engineers, metallurgists, chemists, draughtsmen, and all others who are interested in the efficient equipment and control of steel works. Information and data of practical use to steel makers generally are given, including - 1. The analyses and costs of iron ores, pig irons, refractory materials, fluxes, ferro-alloys and fuels, all of which are principally arranged in tabular form for easy reference. 2. The composition of charges for different classes of steel, with particulars of the finishing additions required. 3. Details of the construction, arrangement, and cost of furnaces and plant. 4. Methods of assembling steel works' costs and details concerning the value of labour and the costs of living in various industrial countries. It is, however, particularly desired to emphasise the importance of the study of costs in steel manufacture to students of metallurgy. A systematic treatment of the subject, not only as applied to iron and steel, but to all metals worked commercially, might be introduced as part of the metallurgical course at universities and other educational institutions. The subject has already received some attention in the high schools of Germany and in the U.S.A., and I was pleased to learn from Dr. Hamerschlog while on a recent visit to the Carnegie Technical Institute, Pittsburg, U.S.A., that the importance of teaching students the money value of materials in the raw and manufactured states, together with their physical and chemical values, was being recognised.

Coal: the chance or the trap to Polish energy security? Wydawnictwo MM Marek Makuliński
KSIĄŻKI > Literatura obcojęzyczna
The authors strive to introduce the newest materials and data on coal extraction and production, which helps the readers understanding the changes in the subject matter. Coal is an important primary fuel throughout the world and research has spread from coal liquefaction and gasification to technologies for developing clean coal. The extractive nature of mining operations in the EU member states creates a variety of impacts on the environment before, during and after mining operations. The extent and nature of impacts can range from minimal to significant depending on a range of factors associated with each mine. Such factors include: the characteristic of the ore body; the type of technology and extraction methods used in mining and the on-site processing of minerals; and the sensitivity of the local environment. The environmental impacts of mining, although significant, are generally confined to local areas around the Europe. The publication is structured in the way that does not require professional knowledge of coal - mining industry. The effort were made to keep specific terminology to a minimum, due to used approach presenting. This book is intended as a reference for both graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in international relations and national security studies. It attempts to cover complicated topic of coal production as completely as possible, in order to provide the average reader with the environmental fundamentals and the current state of technology in coal extraction. This book discusses e.g. the main environmental impacts of mineral mining, such as wastes, and the rate of resource use (where the supply of minerals depends on the rate of resource use, which is affected by the economic life of mineral deposits and the rate at which new reserves are discovered). The book also summarizes environmental management initiatives, such as the use of legislation, environmental impact assessments, environmental protection expenditure, rehabilitation and industry self-regulation in the EU. Each chapter is organized in clear and schematic way, therefore making it easy for all readers and students to follow. If the reader wish to know more about the specific topic, the references in the text will help find relevant documents and articles.
