Assuming the risk : the mavericks, the lawyers, and the whistle-blowers who beat big tobacco by Michael Orey( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michael Orey recounts the unprecedented defeat of big tobacco. In 1985, Nathan Horton, a building contractor in rural Mississippi, developed a chronic ache in his left shoulder. A year and a half later, he was dead from lung cancer. In his final, painful months, Horton had filed suit against the manufacturer of the cigarettes he had smoked for more than thirty years. Horton, who was black, found a most unlikely lawyer to pursue his cause with near-religious zeal: Don Barrett, an arch-segregationist in his youth and an unapologetic defender of the Old South. When he took up his dying neighbor's case, Barrett knew full well that no tobacco company had ever paid a cent to anyone who claimed that smoking had harmed their health." "The individuals joining forces in Mississippi included a washed-up actor-turned-paralegal who copied thousands of pages of internal company documents; a Gulf Coast lawyer whose almost accidental foray into asbestos litigation had made him a multimillionaire; and the state's maverick attorney general, who authorized a pioneering suit against the tobacco industry to make it pay for the health care costs of smoking." "In detail, journalist Michael Orey tells how these people came together and did what no one else before them had: defeat the tobacco industry."--Jacket

Three Years of Intelligent Tutoring Evaluation a Summary of Findings by Michael Orey( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Over the past 3 years, a variety of studies in intelligent tutoring system (ITS) effectiveness have been conducted. A summary is provided of the research into the use of POSIT, MALM, and the Mobile Subscriber Remote-Telephone Terminal (MSRT) Tutor. POSIT is an ITS for the tutoring of whole-number subtraction. It assumes that the learning of a cognitive skill builds from declarative knowledge. MALM, which makes use of some of the latest computer-based instructional technologies, was designed so that problem solving in an Army communications network can be explored in a computer environment. The MSRT Tutor teaches operating procedures for one of the Army's mobile telephones. Studies conducted with each of these ITS systems suggest that an ITS has the potential for being effective for instruction, especially with procedural knowledge. An ITS may be used as a change device to change the role of the classroom teacher from one that is largely disciplinary to one that is more facilitative. Help and error feedback seem to be the most useful features of an ITS. The use of off-the-shelf development packages is a great boost to the use of ITSs, since hours of design and development can be cut short. (SLD)
