Choice modelling : the state-of-the-art and the state-of-practice : proceedings from the inaugural International Choice Modelling Conference by Stephane Hess( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of papers, by leading researchers in the field, provides an excellent view of the current state of research and applications. Exciting new techniques are presented, and realistic solutions are offered to issues that arise in applied work. It is an admirably rich volume, offering valuable insights for all readers of choice modeling. Kenneth Train, University of California, Berkeley and NERA Economic Consulting, Inc., San Francisco, California, US. Im an enthusiastic fan of the ICMC, where researchers are friendly, genuinely interested in learning from and helping one another. There is much to learn because each discipline brings a different perspective to the field and to theoretical and applied problems in decision-making and choice behavior. The ICMC embodies the philosophy that most real choice problems are complex and require a cross-disciplinary approach. The papers in this volume represent an eclectic cross-section of the topics covered by key researchers in the field. I look forward to getting our PhD students and postdocs stuck into them. Jordan Louviere, University of Technology Sydney, Australia. Choice modelling has been one of the most active fields in economics over recent years. This valuable new book contains leading contributions from academics and practitioners from across the different areas of study where choice modelling is a key analytical technique, drawn from a recent international conference. Choice models explain the behaviour of individuals by quantifying their values, responses and perceptions of attributes describing the various options (alternatives) available to them. Policy makers and planners have long since recognised the potential of using choice models for guidance purposes, with applications in fields as diverse as transport analysis, healthcare, telecommunications, public service evaluation and energy. The unique mix of theoretical and applied chapters will appeal to academics, students, researchers and practitioners in various fields, as well as anyone with a general interest in the subject

Crime and insecurity : the governance of safety in Europe by Adam Crawford( )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concerns over insecurity have become central issues in political debates across Europe and the western world, and crucial changes have followed in the wake of these concerns. This book contributes to an understanding of these developments
Being : developments in contemporary metaphysics by Royal Institute of Philosophy( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is it for an object to persist through time? Do things have essences? What is the relation between an object and its parts? Are objects more real than their parts, or vice versa? Could there be spatio-temporally coincident objects? Do we need an ontology of truth-makers? These interrelated questions reflect the central concerns of contemporary metaphysics, which in recent years has seen an intensification of interest in ontological issues. They are the focus of the essays collected in this volume, which arose from the Being: Developments in Contemporary Metaphysics conference held at the University of Leeds in September, 2006"--Back cover

Genetic engineering. how genes are engineered( Visual )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does cDNA differ from normal DNA? Can a bullet really implant genes? And why is a gene for bioluminescence so valuable to researchers? This program answers those and other questions as it introduces the process of genetic engineering. Dr. David Cove deftly explains how reverse transcriptase is used to isolate genes, how isolated genes are cloned, how cloned genes are delivered via benign virus or "DNA gun," and how the effects of delivered genes are tracked by reporter genes
Genetic engineering. how DNA works( Visual )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Any discussion of genetic engineering first requires a knowledge of how organisms replicate. In this program, Dr. David Cove describes the structure and function of DNA as he covers how coding sequences and promoters work together to create proteins from amino acids. DNA's remarkable suitability as a medium for duplicating the blueprints of life both rapidly and accurately in a simple yet precise language is emphasized
Life Cycles by Anne Sparrowhawk( Visual )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The life cycles of plants, animals, and humans are studied close-up in this outstanding biology program. Narrated film action scenes show plant and animal reproduction, then show the budding of leaves, and the emergence of baby chicks from their shell. The growth stage depicts a caterpillar's metamorphosis into a butterfly, and a tadpole's emergence as a frog. Mature penguins, sheep, ducks, and baboons forage for food, while plants drink in sunlight and humans find their food at the supermarket! Decomposing fruit and bread are used as examples of how the final life cycle, death, produces new life-in these cases, bacteria and mold
Genetic engineering. applications and issues( Visual )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many scientists and consumers believe that genetic engineering will vastly improve life on Earth, while others believe it will spell the ruin of the planet. What are the facts behind the rhetoric and the hysteria? In this program, Dr. David Cove surveys past and probable future applications of genetic engineering while calmly presenting possible benefits and liabilities. The case is stated for genetically modified crops; microorganism-produced human insulin; engineered vaccines, which involve no disease-causing microbes; and the diagnosis and cure of gene-based diseases. The concept of risk assessment is also defined
Perineal Repair after Childbirth( Visual )

3 editions published between 1993 and 2017 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program provides a detailed study of the anatomy of the perineal area, the disruption that occurs from an episiotomy or a tear made during childbirth, and the surgery necessary to repair the damage. In-depth commentary, detailed diagrams, and actual step-by-step reconstructive surgery combine to create an extremely thorough treatment of this subject
Oxygen in the metal and gaseous fuel industries : the plenary lectures of the first BOC Priestley Conference by BOC Priestley Conference( Book )

5 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plant Biology( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using animated diagrams, time-lapse photography, and scanning electron microscopy, this program concisely examines several key areas of plant biology. Topics discussed include cyclical and predatory plant movement, the role of stomata in transpiration and the diffusion of carbon dioxide, the mechanics of "light reaction" photosynthesis, the regulation of plant growth through hormones such as auxin and cytokinin, and hormonal growth responses to environmental stimuli. A laboratory demonstration of plant cloning, including cell extraction, callus growth, and hormone treatment, is presented as well
Microbes in Action( Visual )

3 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program presents seven practical demonstrations of microbes in action
Tuberculosis : Its Origins and Effects( Visual )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a detailed medical overview of one of the world's most feared killers. It uses actual body organs and excellent microscopy to illustrate the lecture. The various types of the disease discussed are primary, secondary, non-pulmonary, open, military, and bovine tuberculosis, and Pott's disease. Subtopics include epithelioid cells, Langhans giant cell, granuloma, hypersensitivity reaction, and casseous necrosis. Tuberculosis meningitis and bronchial tuberculosis are examined as complications of the more basic strains. Vaccines and how they work are also addressed
Modeling Satellite Motion( Visual )

2 editions published between 1997 and 2017 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using computer graphics, this program examines the problem of finding the radius of the orbit of a geosynchronous satellite using Newton's laws
Modeling Circular Motion( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program follows up on the ideas and problems presented in Mechanics in Action by using an amusement park ride to model circular motion. The aim is to introduce and develop the idea of mathematical modeling and show how real-world problems can be solved by a modeling process. Beginning with a review of circular motion, the assumptions that must be made to simplify the problem and set up the circular motion model are examined in a classroom. Analysis is carried out through the use of computer graphics. The result is a thorough solution of the original problem. More suggestions are provided for teachers on further circular motion problems
Mechanics in Action( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program uses computer graphics and live demonstrations to introduce Newton's laws and their application for solving problems in mechanics. Aristotle's model of force and motion is compared with Newton's. Amusement park rides, an antique car, and an expansion bridge are used to demonstrate the laws
Epidural Techniques in Childbirth( Visual )

2 editions published between 1997 and 2017 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this program, obstetric anesthetist Dr. Martin Dresner explains the principles and method of epidural analgesia with the aid of an anatomical model and diagrams and then performs the technique on a patient prior to her elective cesarean section. The different uses of epidurals in obstetrics are also covered, as are the common side effects and potential dangers. Misplacement of the needle or catheter is also addressed
