Applied Economics

by Sowell

This revised and updated edition adds a chapter on the economics of immigration and includes interesting examples and analysis designed for general readers. The chapter on the economics of housing is up to date, exploring the recent subprime mortgage crisis and the role of "creative" financing. But the chapter on the economics of medical care, while expanded to cover the issue of organ transplants, appears to have been written before many of the issues arose in the current debate about paying for health care. Other chapters focus on labor, the economics of discrimination, and the economic development over time of various nations. Includes a sources section with the references written more in a text style. Sowell is a Scholar in Residence at the Hoover Institution. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)

Applied Ethics in Mental Health Care: An Interdisciplinary Reader

by Hila Rimon-Greenspan Artur L. Caplan Dominic A. Sisti

This book discusses some of the most critical ethical issues in mental health caretoday, including the moral dimensions of addiction, patient autonomy and compulsory treatment,privacy and confidentiality, and the definition of mental illness itself. Although debates overthese issues are ongoing, there are few comprehensive resources for addressing such dilemmas in thepractice of psychology, psychiatry, social work, and other behavioral and mental health careprofessions. This book meets that need, providing foundational background for undergraduate,graduate, and professional courses. Topics include central questions such asevolving views of the morality and pathology of deviant behavior; patient competence and thedecision to refuse treatment; recognizing and treating people who have suffered trauma; addiction asillness; the therapist's responsibility to report dangerousness despite patient confidentiality; andboundaries for the therapist's interaction with patients outside of therapy, whether in the form oftennis games, gift-giving, or social media contact. For the most part the selections addresscontemporary issues in contemporary terms, but the book also offers a few historic or classicessays, including Thomas S. Szasz's controversial 1971 article "The Ethics of Addiction. "Contributors include Laura Weiss Roberts, Frederic G. Reamer, Charles P. O'Brien, and ThomasMcLellan.

Applied Kinesiology, Revised Edition

by Robert Frost George J. Goodheart

The revised edition of the best-selling book on Applied Kinesiology, Applied Kinesiology, Revised Edition introduces a diagnostic method that uses manual muscle testing to assess the body's "Triad of Health"--structure, chemistry, and psyche. To perform a muscle test, the practitioner applies light pressure that the client then resists. If the client cannot resist the pressure, the muscle "tests weak," indicating a structural problem or imbalance that needs to be resolved. Further applications include working with a muscle that tests strong "in the clear" as a diagnostic tool to determine the effect of stimuli including touch, nutrients, medicines, allergens, emotions, poor posture, and stressful memories. Opening with a detailed description of the history and applications of Applied Kinesiology, the book covers the theory, procedure, and intepretation of the muscle test including diagnosis and correction techniques for areas of weakness. Thirty-three muscle tests for different areas of the body are accompanied by instructive photographs with superimposed anatomical drawings that demonstrate the method and various treatment points. A useful appendix includes a glossary of anatomical terms and special vocabulary; a step-by-step plan for conducting a session; and a list of contacts and sources for Applied Kinesiology materials. Offering a new preface and additional techniques in the areas of manual medicine, orthomolecular medicine, and psychology, this revised edition shares the author's discoveries as well as anecdotal observations to stimulate further research. Table of Contents:Foreword; Introduction; Chapter 1: From Biomechanics to Applied Kinesiology; Chapter 2: Scientific Principles of Applied Kinesiology; Chapter 3: The Muscle Test; Chapter 4: Pretests; Chapter 5: Diagnosis and Correction Techniques; Chapter 6: Muscle Tests; Chapter 7: Applied Kinesiology and Manual Medicine; Chapter 8: Applied Kinesiology and Orthomolecular Medicine; Chapter 9: Applied Kinesiology and the Psyche; Chapter 10: Personal Discoveries and Garnered Methods for Further Consideration; Appendices; Index

Applied Linguistics and Primary School Teaching

by Sue Ellis Elspeth Mccartney

Modern primary teachers must adapt literacy programmes and ensure efficient learning for all. They must also support children with language and literacy difficulties, children learning English as an additional language and possibly teach a modern foreign language. To do this effectively, they need to understand the applied linguistics research that underpins so many different areas of the language and literacy curriculum. This book illustrates the impact of applied linguistics on curriculum frameworks and pedagogy. It captures the range of applied linguistics knowledge that teachers need, and illustrates how this is framed and is used by policy makers, researchers, teacher educators and the other professions who work with teachers in schools. It considers how to effect professional development that works. It is essential reading for primary teachers but also for speech and language therapists, educational psychologists, learning support teachers and all those doing language or literacy research in the primary classroom.

Applied Nonparametric Statistics in Reliability

by M. Luz Gámiz Bo Henry Lindqvist Nikolaos Limnios K. B. Kulasekera

Nonparametric statistics has probably become the leading methodology for researchers performing data analysis. It is nevertheless true that, whereas these methods have already proved highly effective in other applied areas of knowledge such as biostatistics or social sciences, nonparametric analyses in reliability currently form an interesting area of study that has not yet been fully explored. Applied Nonparametric Statistics in Reliability is focused on the use of modern statistical methods for the estimation of dependability measures of reliability systems that operate under different conditions. The scope of the book includes: smooth estimation of the reliability function and hazard rate of non-repairable systems; study of stochastic processes for modelling the time evolution of systems when imperfect repairs are performed; nonparametric analysis of discrete and continuous time semi-Markov processes; isotonic regression analysis of the structure function of a reliability system, and lifetime regression analysis. Besides the explanation of the mathematical background, several numerical computations or simulations are presented as illustrative examples. The corresponding computer-based methods have been implemented using R and MATLAB®. A concrete modelling scheme is chosen for each practical situation and, in consequence, a nonparametric inference procedure is conducted. Applied Nonparametric Statistics in Reliability will serve the practical needs of scientists (statisticians and engineers) working on applied reliability subjects.

Applying Computational Intelligence

by Arthur Kordon

The flow of academic ideas in the area of computational intelligence is impacting industrial practice at considerable speed. Practitioners face the challenge of tracking, understanding and applying the latest techniques, which often prove their value even before the underlying theories are fully understood. This book offers realistic guidelines on creating value from the application of computational intelligence methods. In Part I, the author offers simple explanations of the key computational intelligence technologies: fuzzy logic, neural networks, support vector machines, evolutionary computation, swarm intelligence, and intelligent agents. In Part II, he defines the typical business environment and analyzes the competitive advantages these techniques offer. In Part III, he introduces a methodology for effective real-world application of computational intelligence while minimizing development cost, and he outlines the critical, underestimated technology marketing efforts required. The methodology can improve the existing capabilities of Six Sigma, one of the most popular work processes in industry. Finally, in Part IV the author looks to technologies still in the research domain, such as perception-based computing, artificial immune systems, and systems with evolved structure, and he examines the future for computational intelligence applications while taking into account projected industrial needs. The author adopts a light tone in the book, visualizes many of the techniques and ideas, and supports the text with notes from successful implementations. The book is ideal for engineers implementing these techniques in the real world, managers charged with creating value and reducing costs in the related industries, and scientists in computational intelligence looking towards the application of their research.
