Irving Kirsch has the world doubting the efficacy of antidepressants. Do they work, or are they no better than placebos? Like his colleagues, Kirsch spent years referring patients to psychiatrists to have their depression treated with drugs. Eventually, however, he decided to investigate for himself just how effective the drugs actually were. With 15 years of research, Kirsch demonstrates that what everyone “knew” about antidepressants is wrong; what the medical community considered a cornerstone of psychiatric treatment is little more than a faulty consensus. But The Emperor’s New Drugs does more than just criticize: it offers a path society can follow to stop popping pills and start proper treatment. About the author: Irving Kirsch, PhD, a native of New York City, is a professor of psychology at the University of Hull, United Kingdom, as well as professor emeritus at the University of Connecticut. He lives in Hull, England. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Powers. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/blak/005033/bk_blak_005033_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
I have written about them all from Lashley to Hebb and Freud to Hull. You name a theorist and chances are I have written in depth and in detail about their theory. Now it's my turn to share my theoretical intellections which are creatively and uniquely my own. This collection of theories and terminologies includes twenty-seven new terms. The creation of new terms and theories is no easy task I can assure you, but I hope you can enjoy my intellections as a contribution to the psychology community and betterment to social science. 1.

By the time the Revolutionary War started, military confrontations between the world powers had become so common that combat was raised to the status of a fine art, consuming a large portion of time for adolescent males in training and comprising a sizeable component of the economy. Weaponry was developed to a degree of quality not accessible to most North Americans, and European aristocrats were reared in the mastery of swordsmanship with an emphasis on the saber for military use. Nations such as France undoubtedly had an elevating effect on America’s capacity to make formal war, and Lafayette is the most famous foreigner to serve in the Continental Army, but one of the most important individuals who arrived was a Polish nobleman named Tadeusz Kościuszko, who had military and engineering experience. Raised in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, Hull’s increasing fame is accessible in large part due to his association with Kościuszko, who is still a hero across America today for helping design and construct the defenses of West Point, among other things. Serving as Kościuszko’s orderly for a period of 50 months in nearly every major battle, Hull was described by noted historian Gary Gary Nash as a great “unnoticed American”. Nash further speaks of Hull’s service to the Continental Army at the side of Kościuszko as the core of his “hidden importance”. By the end of the war, Hull had served for six years and two months in Washington’s army, receiving a badge of honor for his extended service, and precious discharge papers signed by the commanding general himself. Beyond that unique professional collaboration and personal friendship, the savvy orderly set an example to all free blacks by achieving a lifestyle unthinkable for many white residents of Stockbridge or any American community. Likewise, excellence as an orderly to a high-ranking officer is not the most memorable story for an American biography; rather, Hull’s influence on Kościuszko’s worldvi 1. Language: English.

As finite-life organisations, Housing Action Trusts (HATs) offer a unique opportunity for the analysis of Conservative urban policy. They were established in 1988 by the Conservative government as the cutting edge of urban policy. By the time the first HAT was established in Hull in 1991, the Conservative government had adopted a much more holistic and welfarist attitude to urban regeneration. Community involvement was seen to facilitate the regeneration process, an approach that led HATs to incorporate a range of social and economic policies into their development programmes. Although only six HATs were established, these employed a wide range of community development models, leading to varying success. An analysis of the different approaches offers valuable lessons for community development policy. The main lesson is that sustainability can only be achieved if organisations adopt a genuine participatory, bottom- up approach to community development.
This book belongs to the Computer Vision domain, more specifically, to the area of Three-Dimensional (3D) Vision. The 3D information of the surrounding environment perceived by human eyes is one of the most important kinds of information offered by sight. Thus, a large effort has been developed by the scientific community throughout time in the development of methods that make possible the acquisition of a scene (or object) using techniques of Computer Vision. Computational methods were developed to obtain 3D models of the human body from image sequences. On both the image pixel information is transformed into 3D spatial coordinates. The images are acquired by moving the camera or the object to be reconstructed, without imposing severe restrictions, on either the movement involved or on the illumination conditions. The first method adopts the Stereo Vision approach, in which a depth map of scene objects is recovered. The second method is based on a volumetric approach for Shape-from-Silhouettes, which constructs a 3D shape estimate (Visual Hull) of an object. The methods were assessed using objects with dissimilar textures, shapes and sizes, including real human body structures.
The book is based on formal researches about zero-failure data to adopte comprehensive E-Bayes method to study hull reliability. Also, based on zero-failure data of hull life, when zero-failure data of hull life subjects to two-parameter Weibull distribution, we studied the relationship between reliability and life of various structure hulls. The book offers hull reliability assessment method for shipyards and ship consumers under zero-failure of hull life condition, which are comprehensive E-Bayes estimation method, lower confidence limit estimation of hull reliability model and lower confidence limit estimation of hull reliable life model. Using E-Bayes method, we estimated hull failure rate under zero-failure data and failure data conditions respectively, and we got the comprehensive failure rate of hull by their weighted composite. Thus, we got the hull comprehensive reliability. We aim to bring some new ideas to the community and professionals in Reliability Analysis for hull.

The crustaceans are ecologically and economically important organisms. They constitute one of the dominant invertebrate groups on earth, particularly within the aquatic realm. Crustaceans include some of the preferred scientific model organism, profitable aquaculture specimen, but also invasive nuisance species threatening native animal communities throughout the world. Chemoreception is the most important sensory modality of crustaceans, acquiring important information about their environment and picking up the chemical signals that mediate communication with conspecifics.Significant advances have been made in our understanding of crustacean chemical communication during the past decade. This includes knowledge about the identity, production, transfer, reception and behavioral function of chemical signals in selected crustacean groups. While it is well known that chemical communication is an integral part of the behavioral ecology of most living organisms, the intricate ways in which organisms allocate chemicals in communication remains enigmatic. How does the environment influence the evolution of chemical communication? What are the environmental cues that induce production or release of chemicals? How do individuals economize production and utilization of chemicals? What is the importance of molecule specificity or mix of a molecule cocktail in chemical communication? What is the role of chemical cues in multimodal communication? How does the ontogenetic stage, the sex or the physiological status of an individual affect its reaction to chemical cues? Many of these questions still represent important challenges to biologists. Crustaceans are ecologically and economically important. They are fished and farmed extensively for food and are model organisms for scientific research. However, as invasive species, some crustaceans also threaten native communities world-wide. Social interactions of these primarily aquatic invertebrates are generally mediated through chemicals. Hence, the study of chemical communication by crustaceans is fundamental to understanding their biology and developing strategies to manage and protect them. Research in this area also promises discoveries of new waterborne natural products. This book provides the first comprehensive synthesis of current knowledge on crustacean chemical communication. Leading experts review different aspects of chemical communication and share their fascination with their research with the reader. Opening with an overview of the challenges and concepts of crustacean chemical communication research, the book proceeds to explore signal transmission and reception, and neural processing. The behavioral context of chemical communication is reviewed for the best-studied species. Recent advances in the molecular identification of crustacean chemical signals are presented, followed by discussions of their possible applications in aquaculture and management. Additional chapters provide complementary knowledge from other taxa (fish, insects) and topics (multimodal communication, deception, ecotoxicology), highlighting opportunities for future research. The book is richly illustrated and avoids technical jargon, making it accessible to a broad readership including researchers and students of ecology, evolution, behavior, and neurobiology, as well as non-scientists interested in fisheries, aquaculture, and environmental management. This excellent and comprehensive volume fills a major gap in the field of chemical ecology and behavioral physiology. The editors assembled an outstanding group of expert contributors. - Bert Hölldobler, Arizona State University and University of Würzburg The topics are timely, the reviews current and the approach refreshingly synthetic. I see this book being useful for many years to come to the entire community of aquatic chemical ecologists. - Peter W. Sorensen, University of Minnesota The chapters are lucidly written by the outstanding experts in their fields. The book is a must-read for all those interested in the underwater world. - Jelle Atema, Boston University and Woods Hole Oceanographic InstitutionABOUT THE EDITORSThomas Breithaupt is a lecturer in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Hull (UK) where he studies the mechanisms and evolution of chemical communication and orientation in crustaceans and fish.Martin Thiel is professor of Marine Biology at Universidad Católica del Norte in Coquimbo (Chile) where together with his students he uses crustaceans as model organisms to study the evolution of social behavior in the sea.
