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.

Information Systems Theory Springer, Berlin
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Why do IS research submissions either demonstrate an inappropriate use of existing theories and/or models or lack it completely? Perhaps because there are so many theories that come from so many disparate disciplines, from computer science through sociology. It is subsequently not an easy task for researchers to find adequate information on a theory of interest in order to further understand it and apply it in a new research context. Consequently, the researchers use various papers that are available, which have utilized the theory of interest but, again, these papers either do not present a full account of the theory or, based on the authors needs, they present a slightly modified and fragmented version of the particular theory. §Although such a severe deficiency exists in a vital area of IS knowledge, apart from an AIS Wiki site (Schneberger & Wade, 2009) and a recently edited volume by Dwivedi which contains in-depth coverage on a limited number of theories, no attempt has been made to provide a comprehensive and in-depth account, coverage and collection of many prominent theories, models and related research approaches appropriate to IS research. A literary and meta-analytic collection of theories will provide a valuable aid to IS research, IS researchers and practitioners and IS students. §The overall mission of the proposed book is to provide a comprehensive understanding and coverage of the various theories, models and related research approaches utilized within Information Systems research. To achieve the overall mission, the proposed book will fulfill the following objectives: §To provide a descriptive understanding of the various theories and models applicable to study IS/IT management related issues. §To outline and describe, for each of the various theories and models, independent and dependent constructs, reference discipline/originating area, originating author(s), seminal articles, level of analysis (i.e. firm, individual, industry) and links with other theories. §To provide a critical review/ meta-analysis of IS/IT management articles which have utilized a particular theory/model.§To establish a link between a particular theory/model and research approaches/methods used in IS research. §To provide examples/descriptions of real world applications of the various theories on the basis of empirical studies. §To provide an understanding of traditional and contemporary methods for testing and building the theories and models.
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.
Bark Canoes and Skin Boats of North America Skyhorse Publishing
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Everything you need to know about the nearly lost art of bark and skin craft. The bark canoes of the North American Indians, particularly those made of birch bark, were among the most highly developed manually propelled primitive watercraft of their time. They could be used to carry heavy loads in shallow streams but were light enough to be hauled long distances over land. Built with Stone Age tools from available materials, their design, size, and appearance were varied to suit the many requirements of their users. Upon arrival in North America, European settlers began using the native-made craft for traveling through the wilderness. Even today, canoes are based on these ancient designs. Bark Canoes and Skin Boats of North America combines historical background with easy-to-understand, practical instructions. Author Edwin Tappan Adney, born in 1868, devoted his life to studying canoes and was practically the sole scholar in his field. His papers and research have been assembled by a curator at the Smithsonian Institution and illustrated with black-and-white line drawings, diagrams, and photos. Included here are measurements, detailed drawings, construction methods, and models. The book covers canoes from Newfoundland to the Pacific Ocean, as well as umiaks and kayaks from the Arctic. Bark Canoes and Skin Boats of North America is not only a must-have for boatbuilding hobbyists, but also for those with a fascination for the history behind them.
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.

New Approaches to Circle Packing in a Square Springer, Berlin
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
This book presents an overview of recent results achieved in solving the circle packing problem. It provides the reader with a comprehensive view of both theoretical and computational achievements. Illustrations of problem solutions are shown, elegantly displaying the results obtained.In one sense, the problem of finding the densest packing of congruent circles in a square is easy to understand: it is a matter of positioning a given number of equal circles in such a way that the circles fit fully in a square without overlapping. But on closer inspection, this problem reveals itself to be an interesting challenge of discrete and computational geometry with all its surprising structural forms and regularities. As the number of circles to be packed increases, solving a circle packing problem rapidly becomes rather difficult. To give an example of the difficulty of some problems, consider that in several cases there even exists a circle in an optimal packing that can be moved slightly while retaining the optimality. Such free circles (or "rattles ) mean that there exist not only a continuum of optimal solutions, but the measure of the set of optimal solutions is positive! This book summarizes results achieved in solving the circle packing problem over the past few years, providing the reader with a comprehensive view of both theoretical and computational achievements. Typically illustrations of problem solutions are shown, elegantly displaying the results obtained.§Beyond the theoretically challenging character of the problem, the solution methods developed in the book also have many practical applications. Direct applications include cutting out congruent two-dimensional objects from an expensive material, or locating points within a square in such a way that the shortest distance between them is maximal. Circle packing problems are closely related to the "obnoxious facility location problems, to the Tammes problem, and less closely related to the Kissing Number Problem. The emerging computational algorithms can also be helpful in other hard-to-solve optimization problems like molecule conformation.The wider scientific community has already been involved in checking the codes and has helped in having the computational proofs accepted. Since the codes can be worked with directly, they will enable the reader to improve on them and solve problem instances that still remain challenging, or to use them as a starting point for solving related application problems.§Audience§This book will appeal to those interested in discrete geometrical problems and their efficient solution techniques. Operations research and optimization experts will also find it worth reading as a case study of how the utilization of the problem structure and specialities made it possible to find verified solutions of previously hopeless high-dimensional nonlinear optimization problems with nonlinear constraints.
Pattern Recognition Approach to Electromyography Data VDM Verlag Dr. Müller
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
EMG classification is widely used in electric control of mechanically developed prosthesis, robots development, clinical application etc. It has been evaluated for years, but the main goal of this research is to develop an easy to implement and fast to execute pattern recognition method for classifying signals used for human gait analysis. This method is based on adding two new temporal features (form factor and standard deviation) for EMG signal recognition and using them along with several popular features (area under the curve, wavelength function-pathway and zero crossing rate) to come up with a low complexity suitable feature extraction. Results are presented for EMG data and a comparison with existing methods is made to validate the applicability of the foregoing method. It is shown that the best combination in terms of accuracy and time performance is given by spectral and temporal extraction features along with neural network recognition algorithm. Ideas from this thesis could be useful for any kind of biomedical signal recognition such as recognizing abnormal EMG, ECG, EEG sets as well for searching already scanned signals.
