Making Space: How the Brain Knows Where Things Are
Knowing where things are seems effortless. Yet our brains devote tremendous computational power to figuring out the simplest details about spatial relationships. Going to the grocery store or finding our cell phone requires sleuthing and coordination across different sensory and motor domains. Making Space" traces this mental detective work to explain how the brain creates our sense of location. But it goes further, to make the case that spatial processing permeates all our cognitive abilities, and that the brain s systems for thinking about space may be the systems of thought itself. Our senses measure energy in the form of light, sound, and pressure on the skin, and our brains evaluate these measurements to make inferences about objects and boundaries. Jennifer Groh describes how eyes detect electromagnetic radiation, how the brain can locate sounds by measuring differences of less than one one-thousandth of a second in how long they take to reach each ear, and how the ear s balance organs help us monitor body posture and movement. The brain synthesizes all this neural information so that we can navigate three-dimensional space. But the brain s work doesn t end there. Spatial representations do double duty in aiding memory and reasoning. This is why it is harder to remember how to get somewhere if someone else is driving, and why, if we set out to do something and forget what it was, returning to the place we started can jog our memory. In making space the brain uses powers we did not know we have."

Building Rules: How Local Controls Shape Community Environments And Economies

Building Rules: How Local Controls Shape Community Environments And Economies by Kee Warner
English | 2001 | ISBN: 0813339235 | 216 Pages | PDF | 23 MB
Urban and suburban growth is a burning local issue for communities across the United States and many other parts of the world.

Building Rules: How Local Controls Shape Community Environments And Economies
Concerns include protecting habitats, high costs of infrastructure, social inequalities, traffic congestion and more intangible worries about "quality of life." Citizens pressure public officials to intensify development regulations, flying in the face of local "growth machines." Builders and growth boosters oppose regulation as unfair and bad for local economies. Based on a systematic comparative study of urban areas in Southern California, this book provides a much-needed examination of the true impacts of local development controls, including the ways that they have and have not made a difference. The authors draw general implications for communities elsewhere and how to better understand theories of growth and urban governance.

The Escape Manifesto: Quit Your Corporate Job. Do Something Different! by Escape The City
English | 2013 | ISBN: 0857083627 | 280 pages | EPUB | 0,7 MB

The Escape Manifesto: Quit Your Corporate Job. Do Something Different!
Rob, Dom and Mikey were fed up with the corporate treadmill. When they decided to change careers, they looked for a website to help them escape – except there wasn't one. So they started their own. Three years later and they have started a movement called Escape the City. Over 100,000 people have joined www.escapethecity.org in pursuit of exciting and unconventional careers. They are the first online start-up in the world to raise more than £500,000 in investment equity crowdfunding – and they did this entirely from their own membership.

The Escape Manifesto is the book that the guys wish they had read three years ago on the London Underground when they were commuting back and forth from their corporate cubicles. It is an inspirational call to action, packed with practical advice and encouragement. If you work in a corporate job that doesn't make you tick and you have ever wondered whether there is more to life, this book is for you. Step off the corporate treadmill – find an exciting job, start your own business, or go on a big adventure. Stop dreaming, start planning and do something different!

High Scoring Baseball by Todd Guilliams
English | 2012 | ISBN: 1450416195 | 240 pages | PDF | 12,7 MB
What is the definition of a high-scoring offense? How do you measure a player's offensive productivity? How do you keep your team on track throughout the course of a long season?

High Scoring Baseball
High-Scoring Baseball is the definitive guide for establishing an aggressive, opportunistic, and disciplined offense. Inside you'll find detailed coverage of the four offensive team goals and the six ways to create offensive pressure that gives every team a chance to be high scorers.

Then go inside the numbers for an in-depth analysis of run production. Discover the most common predictors for achieving a big inning, the importance of getting the lead-off hitter on, and the importance of collecting free bases. You'll identify the most effective strategies based on specific game situations as well as the proper mental approach and physical adjustments to execute in those situations.

Offense is more than a player's batting average or a team's ability to hit the long ball. It's all about run production. It's a player's ability to achieve a high-quality at-bat and a team's ability to create a big inning. High-Scoring Baseball will change the way you see and play the game.

Chaotic Synchronization: Applications to Living Systems

FREEDownload : Chaotic Synchronization: Applications to Living Systems

Erik Mosekilde, "Chaotic Synchronization: Applications to Living Systems"
English | ISBN: 9810247893 | 2002 | 440 pages | PDF | 30 MB

Chaotic Synchronization: Applications to Living Systems
Interacting chaotic oscillators are of interest in many areas of physics, biology, and engineering. In the biological sciences, for instance, one of the challenging problems is to understand how a group of cells or functional units, each displaying complicated nonlinear dynamic phenomena, can interact with one another to produce a coherent response on a higher organizational level. This book is a guide to the concept of chaotic synchronization. The topics covered range from transverse stability and riddled basins of attraction in a system of two coupled logistic maps, over partial synchronization and clustering in systems of many chaotic oscillators, to noise-induced synchronization of coherence resonance oscillators. Other topics treated in the book are on-off intermittency and the role of the absorbing and mixed absorbing areas, periodic orbit threshold theory, the influence of a small parameter mismatch, and different mechanisms for chaotic phase synchronization. The biological examples include synchronization of the bursting behaviour of coupled insulin-producing beta cells, chaotic phase synchronization in the pressure and flow regulation of neighbouring functional units of the kidney, and homoclinic transitions to phase synchronization in microbiological reactors. This book should be of interest to students and researchers interested in applying new concepts of chaotic synchronization and clustering to biological systems.
