Expert Political Judgment: How Good Is It? How Can We Know?

FREEDownload : Expert Political Judgment: How Good Is It? How Can We Know?

Expert Political Judgment: How Good Is It? How Can We Know? by Philip E. Tetlock
English | 2006 | ISBN: 0691128715, 0691123020 | 352 pages | EPUB | 5 MB

Expert Political Judgment: How Good Is It? How Can We Know?
The intelligence failures surrounding the invasion of Iraq dramatically illustrate the necessity of developing standards for evaluating expert opinion. This book fills that need. Here, Philip E. Tetlock explores what constitutes good judgment in predicting future events, and looks at why experts are often wrong in their forecasts.

Tetlock first discusses arguments about whether the world is too complex for people to find the tools to understand political phenomena, let alone predict the future. He evaluates predictions from experts in different fields, comparing them to predictions by well-informed laity or those based on simple extrapolation from current trends. He goes on to analyze which styles of thinking are more successful in forecasting. Classifying thinking styles using Isaiah Berlin's prototypes of the fox and the hedgehog, Tetlock contends that the fox–the thinker who knows many little things, draws from an eclectic array of traditions, and is better able to improvise in response to changing events–is more successful in predicting the future than the hedgehog, who knows one big thing, toils devotedly within one tradition, and imposes formulaic solutions on ill-defined problems. He notes a perversely inverse relationship between the best scientific indicators of good judgement and the qualities that the media most prizes in pundits–the single-minded determination required to prevail in ideological combat.

Clearly written and impeccably researched, the book fills a huge void in the literature on evaluating expert opinion. It will appeal across many academic disciplines as well as to corporations seeking to develop standards for judging expert decision-making.

Bridges: The science and art of the world’s most inspiring structures

FREEDownload : Bridges: The science and art of the world’s most inspiring structures

Bridges: The science and art of the world's most inspiring structures by David Blockley
English | 2010 | ISBN: 0199543593 | 329 Pages | PDF | 2 MB
The Brooklyn Bridge, London's Tower Bridge, Sydney's Harbour Bridge, San Francisco's Golden Gate–bridges can be breathtakingly monumental structures, magnificent works of art, and vital arteries that make life vastly easier.

Bridges: The science and art of the world’s most inspiring structures
In Bridges , eminent structural engineer David Blockley takes readers on a fascinating guided tour of bridge construction, ranging from the primitive rope bridges (now mainly found in adventure movies), to Roman aqueducts and the timber trestle railway bridges of the American West, to today's modern marvels, such as the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge, which has the largest span in the world. Blockley outlines the forces at work on a bridge–tension, compression, and shear–and the basic structural elements that combat these forces–beams, arches, trusses, and suspensions (or BATS). As he does so, he explores some of the great bridges around the world, including such lesser-known masterpieces as the Forth Railway Bridge (featured in Alfred Hitchcock's The Thirty-Nine Steps ), and describes some spectacular failures, such as the recent bridge collapse in Minnesota or the famous failure of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in 1940. For instance, Blockley discusses the London's Millennium Bridge–the blade of light across the Thames–which displayed an alarming wobble when opened. He explains that when people walk, they not only exert force directly forward, but also exert a lesser force to the side, and the Millennium Bridge engineers did not consider this tiny lateral movement in their otherwise meticulous design. Amazingly enough, this minor omission caused a wobble severe enough to close the bridge for two years. Bridge building is a magnificent example of the practical use of science. But as Blockley shows in this illuminating book, engineers must go beyond science, blending technical experience and creativity to build the spans that connect us all.

Hall of Mirrors: The Great Depression, The Great Recession, and the Uses-and Misuses-of History

FREEDownload : Hall of Mirrors: The Great Depression, The Great Recession, and the Uses-and Misuses-of History

Hall of Mirrors: The Great Depression, The Great Recession, and the Uses-and Misuses-of History by Barry Eichengreen
English | 2015 | ISBN: 0199392005 | 520 pages | PDF | 22 MB

Hall of Mirrors: The Great Depression, The Great Recession, and the Uses-and Misuses-of History
The two great financial crises of the past century are the Great Depression of the 1930s and the Great Recession, which began in 2008. Both occurred against the backdrop of sharp credit booms, dubious banking practices, and a fragile and unstable global financial system. When markets went into cardiac arrest in 2008, policymakers invoked the lessons of the Great Depression in attempting to avert the worst. While their response prevented a financial collapse and catastrophic depression like that of the 1930s, unemployment in the U.S. and Europe still rose to excruciating high levels. Pain and suffering were widespread.

The question, given this, is why didn't policymakers do better?

Hall of Mirrors, Barry Eichengreen's monumental twinned history of the two crises, provides the farthest-reaching answer to this question to date. Alternating back and forth between the two crises and between North America and Europe, Eichengreen shows how fear of another Depression following the collapse of Lehman Brothers shaped policy responses on both continents, with both positive and negative results. Since bank failures were a prominent feature of the Great Depression, policymakers moved quickly to strengthen troubled banks. But because derivatives markets were not important in the 1930s, they missed problems in the so-called shadow banking system. Having done too little to support spending in the 1930s, governments also ramped up public spending this time around. But the response was indiscriminate and quickly came back to haunt overly indebted governments, particularly in Southern Europe. Moreover, because politicians overpromised, and because their measures failed to stave off a major recession, a backlash quickly developed against activist governments and central banks. Policymakers then prematurely succumbed to the temptation to return to normal policies before normal conditions had returned. The result has been a grindingly slow recovery in the United States and endless recession in Europe.

Hall of Mirrors is both a major work of economic history and an essential exploration of how we avoided making only some of the same mistakes twice. It shows not just how the "lessons" of Great Depression history continue to shape society's response to contemporary economic problems, but also how the experience of the Great Recession will permanently change how we think about the Great Depression.

The Myth of the Strong Leader: Political Leadership in the Modern Age

FREEDownload : The Myth of the Strong Leader: Political Leadership in the Modern Age

The Myth of the Strong Leader: Political Leadership in the Modern Age by Archie Brown
2014 | ISBN: 0465027660 | English | 480 pages | EPUB | 0.65 MB

The Myth of the Strong Leader: Political Leadership in the Modern Age
All too frequently, leadership is reduced to a simple dichotomy: the strong versus the weak. Yet, there are myriad ways to exercise effective political leadership?as well as different ways to fail. We blame our leaders for economic downfalls and praise them for vital social reforms, but rarely do we question what makes some leaders successful while others falter. In this magisterial and wide-ranging survey of political leadership over the past hundred years, renowned Oxford politics professor Archie Brown challenges the widespread belief that strong leaders ? meaning those who dominate their colleagues and the policy-making process ? are the most successful and admirable.

In reality, only a minority of political leaders will truly make a lasting difference. Though we tend to dismiss more collegial styles of leadership as weak, it is often the most cooperative leaders who have the greatest impact. Drawing on extensive research and decades of political analysis and experience, Brown illuminates the achievements, failures and foibles of a broad array of twentieth century politicians. Whether speaking of redefining leaders like Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, and Margaret Thatcher, who expanded the limits of what was politically possible during their time in power, or the even rarer transformational leaders who played a decisive role in bringing about systemic change ? Charles de Gaulle, Mikhail Gorbachev and Nelson Mandela, among them ? Brown challenges our commonly held beliefs about political efficacy and strength.

Overturning many of our assumptions about the twentieth century's most important figures, Brown's conclusions are both original and enlightening. The Myth of the Strong Leader compels us to reassess the leaders who have shaped our world ? and to reconsider how we should choose and evaluate those who will lead us into the future.

Body Wisdom: Natural Health in You

FREEDownload : Body Wisdom: Natural Health in You

Body Wisdom: Natural Health in You by Mrs. Beatrice RD Hair MAED
English | Dec 22, 2014 | ISBN: 1503147312 | 158 Pages | EPUB/MOBI/AZW3/PDF (Converted) | 21 MB
IS YOUR LIFESTYLE free of toxins? Toxins are man-made chemicals that your body is not naturally geared to handle. Body Wisdom-Natural Health in You will help you re-organize your kitchen, foster the development of a healthier attitude, modify your behavior to achieve your goals, brainstorm dietary needs and identify suitable meal replacements and find easy, tasty recipes to get you started.

Body Wisdom: Natural Health in You
This book is based on the premise that our bodies absorb too many man-made toxins. This cannot be stopped entirely; however, it can be minimized through awareness and with an effective plan. Genetics load the gun, but lifestyle is what pulls the trigger. The ultimate goal is healthy body equilibrium. An illness needs sugar and toxins to survive, so the solution is to not open the door to illness. Chronic consumption of refined sugar, such as those in soft drinks and many of the pre-made sugar treats provide the groundwork for disease. Changing what you eat is the key here. The average American adult eats about twenty-two teaspoons of sugar a day; many of these sugars are hidden in our processed foods. Remove toxins from your kitchen, and focus on keeping your digestive track healthy. How will you know what to throw out? You have to use all tools available to you to discover what you need to eat and what you need to avoid. What helped me was to toss out anything with white refined sugar, soy, flour, gluten, corn, and most dairy. The goal is to eat so deliciously that you will not miss anything you have removed from your diet. You will want to do a little research on your condition – to discover what nature has provided to help you heal. If you are healing high cholesterol, your diet could include almonds, olive oil, pumpkin seeds and green tea. If you are healing cancer, foods to include are cruciferous vegetables, non-hormone-treated meats, fruits, seeds, grains, nuts and dark chocolate–see my sugar free, toxic free, dairy free recipe on page 130. Food is your medicine. I am very grateful for modern medicine, for excellent emergency care and powerful medical help but, as a nation, are we doing enough to ward off preventable diseases? Millions of Americans each year are diagnosed with a dangerous disease. One out of every four Americans will be diagnosed with cancer! One out of every eight women in America will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Once you have a disease, you will pay top dollar to treat it. Why not invest in an organic, toxin free, preventative plan? After your kitchen changeover, how do you eat the new food? I have included some meal replacement ideas. Your meal replacement plan will be unique to you. You will create meal replacements for what you normally eat and Body Wisdom-Natural Health in You will help you. Negative feelings such as dread, fear, anxiety and worry cause your body to react as if a tiger were coming after you. The point here is that negative thoughts and feelings are unhealthy and should be avoided. When your cortisol and adrenalin are in high gear, your body automatically shuts down your digestive system. Monitoring and changing your thoughts is crucial. Let's create your own behavior modification plan. This is a tool I have successfully used for students of all ages at my tutoring franchise over 6,000 times. If you make yourself accountable, you will stay with the program. The key to behavior modification is a combination of things-right thinking and a support person. This person will not allow you to sabotage yourself. We all modify behavior at our own pace. Do not lose heart if you fail to complete the first eight weeks successfully. It took many years to get where you are now, and it will take time to arrive at your new destination. Life is a learning journey. You do not have to be an A+ student to succeed. Go at your own pace. Even changing one bad habit is a great accomplishment. If you learn from your failures, they become a part of your success.
