Study and Design of Differential Microphone Arrays
Microphone arrays have attracted a lot of interest over the last few decades since they have the potential to solve many important problems such as noise reduction/speech enhancement, source separation, dereverberation, spatial sound recording, and source localization/tracking, to name a few. However, the design and implementation of microphone arrays with beamforming algorithms is not a trivial task when it comes to processing broadband signals such as speech. Indeed, in most sensor arrangements, the beamformer output tends to have a frequency-dependent response. One exception, perhaps, is the family of differential microphone arrays (DMAs) who have the promise to form frequency-independent responses. Moreover, they have the potential to attain high directional gains with small and compact apertures. As a result, this type of microphone arrays has drawn much research and development attention recently. This book is intended to provide a systematic study of DMAs from a signal processing perspective. The primary objective is to develop a rigorous but yet simple theory

for the design, implementation, and performance analysis of DMAs. The theory includes some signal processing techniques for the design of commonly used first-order, second-order, third-order, and also the general Nth-order DMAs. For each order, particular examples are given on how to form standard directional patterns such as the dipole, cardioid, supercardioid, hypercardioid, subcardioid, and quadrupole. The study demonstrates the performance of the different order DMAs in terms of beampattern, directivity factor, white noise gain, and gain for point sources. The inherent relationship between differential processing and adaptive beamforming is discussed, which provides a better understanding of DMAs and why they can achieve high directional gain. Finally, we show how to design DMAs that can be robust against white noise amplification.

The Strengths Model: A Recovery-Oriented Approach to Mental Health Services, 3 edition

FREEDownload : The Strengths Model: A Recovery-Oriented Approach to Mental Health Services, 3 edition

The Strengths Model: A Recovery-Oriented Approach to Mental Health Services, 3 edition by Charles A. Rapp and Richard J. Goscha
English | 2011 | ISBN: 0199764085 | 352 pages | PDF | 2 MB

The Strengths Model: A Recovery-Oriented Approach to Mental Health Services, 3 edition
Presenting a compelling alternative to the traditional medical approach, The Strengths Model demonstrates an evidence-based approach to helping people with a psychiatric disability identify and achieve meaningful and important life goals. Since the first edition of this classic textbook appeared, the strengths model has matured into a robust vision of mental health services. Both a philosophy of practice and a specific set of tools and methods, the strengths model is designed to facilitate a recovery-oriented partnership between client and practitioner. This completely revised edition charts the evolution of the strengths model, reviews the empirical support behind it, and illustrates the techniques and values that guide its application.

Features new to this edition:
– An extensive update of the strengths literature, focusing on recovery as the dominant paradigm in mental health services
– Richly drawn case vignettes demonstrating the application of methods
– Integration of empirical research and consumers' own experiences
– Completely updated strengths assessment and fidelity scales
– In-depth discussions and examples guide practitioners from theory to applied practice
– Descriptions of how to teach and successfully supervise large-scale implementations of strengths model work

For social workers and other mental health specialists working with clients to move beyond the disabling effects of mental illness to a life filled with meaning, purpose, and identity, this remains the crucial text.

Palaces and Power in the Americas: From Peru to the Northwest Coast

FREEDownload : Palaces and Power in the Americas: From Peru to the Northwest Coast

Jessica Joyce Christie, Patricia Joan Sarro, "Palaces and Power in the Americas: From Peru to the Northwest Coast"
2006 | ISBN-10: 0292709846, 029272599X | 432 pages | PDF | 16 MB

Palaces and Power in the Americas: From Peru to the Northwest Coast
Ancient American palaces still captivate those who stand before them. Even in their fallen and ruined condition, the palaces project such power that, according to the editors of this new collection, it must have been deliberately drawn into their formal designs, spatial layouts, and choice of locations. Such messages separated palaces from other elite architecture and reinforced the power and privilege of those residing in them. Indeed, as Christie and Sarro write, "the relation between political power and architecture is a pervasive and intriguing theme in the Americas." Given the variety of cultures, time periods, and geographical locations examined within, the editors of this book have grouped the articles into four sections.The first looks at palaces in cultures where they have not previously been identified, including the Huaca of Moche Site, the Wari of Peru, and Chaco Canyon in the U.S. Southwest. The second section discusses palaces as "stage sets" that express power, such as those found among the Maya, among the Coast Salish of the Pacific Northwest, and at El Tajin on the Mexican Gulf Coast. The third part of the volume presents cases in which differences in elite residences imply differences in social status, with examples from Pasado de la Amada, the Valley of Oaxaca, Teotihuacan, and the Aztecs. The final section compares architectural strategies between cultures; the models here are Farfan, Peru, under both the Chimu and the Inka, and the separate states of the Maya and the Inka. Such scope, and the quality of the scholarship, make "Palaces and Power in the Americas" a must-have work on the subject.

Citizens at the Centre: Deliberative Participation in Healthcare Decisions By Elizabeth Barnett, Celia Davies, Margaret Wetherell
Publisher: Po.,licy Pres,,s 2006 | 304 Pages | ISBN: 1861348037 , 1861348029 | PDF | 1 MB

Citizens at the Centre: Deliberative Participation in Healthcare Decisions
Involving citizens in policy decision-making processes – deliberative democracy – has been a central goal of the Labour government since it came to power in 1997. But what happens when members of the public are drawn into unfamiliar debate, with unfamiliar others, in the unfamiliar world of policy making at national level? This book sets out to understand the contribution that citizens can realistically be expected to make. Drawing on the lessons from an ethnographic study of a public involvement initiative in the health service – the Citizens Council of NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) – the book: explores the practical realities behind the much-quoted faith in 'deliberation' that underpins so many models of public involvement; presents the analysis of sixty four hours of video and audiotape capturing a warts-and-all picture of deliberation in action; sets deliberative participatory initiatives within a broad inter-disciplinary context; challenges politicians, policy-makers and academics to develop more realistic approaches to democratic innovation.
