Free PDF Ebooks Defining Body Language

Free PDF Ebooks Defining Body Language
The science of body language is a fairly recent study, dating primarily from around 60 years ago, although body language itself is, of course, as old as humans. Psychologists, zoologists, and social anthropologists have conducted detailed research into the components of body language – part of the larger family known as non-verbal behaviour.

If you’re quiet for a moment and take the time to pay attention to body language movements and expressions that silently communicate messages of their own, you can cue in on gestures that convey a feeling and transmit a thought. If you pay close attention, you can identify gestures that you automatically associate with another person, which tell you who she is. In addition, you may notice other types of gestures that reveal a person’s inner state at that moment.

Free PDF Ebooks Healthy Weight Loss
Does this sound familiar? You got tired of hearing your doctor and family bug you about losing weight to prevent or manage type 2 diabetes. So, you got a two-week diet plan from a friend. You started gung-ho. The first few days were great. Then you found there were nights you didn’t have time to fix your food and the family dinner. By the weekend your family wanted to have pizza. And the diet went out the door when you left for your favorite pizza place.

Many people try to lose weight, but fewer people lose weight and keep it off. This happens for several reasons. Sometimes people aim to lose too much weight too fast. Or they try to follow a food plan that isn’t how they can eat long term. Reality is that losing weight in a healthy way and learning how to to keep it off for years, is not easy. It takes a new way of thinking. Are you ready?

Download Free PDF Ebooks Math Problem Solving For Middle School Students With Disabilities
These are typical textbook problems that middle school students should be able to solve with ease. However, many students, especially students with learning disabilities (LD), have difficulty solving even simple mathematical word problems like the ones above. These students most likely have not acquired the skills and strategies needed to “decide what to do” when they are confronted with problems in their math textbooks or cannot apply the skills and strategies they do have to solve math problems in school and in their daily lives. This brief focuses on teaching middle school students how to solve mathematical word problems. The following frequently asked questions provide the framework for the brief.

PDF Ebooks Music and the brain: disorders of musical listening

Download Free PDF Ebooks Music and the brain: disorders of musical listening
The study of the brain bases for normal musical listening has advanced greatly in the last 30 years. The evidence from basic and clinical neuroscience suggests that listening to music involves many cognitive components with distinct brain substrates. Using patient cases reported in the literature, we develop an approach for understanding disordered musical listening that is based on the systematic assessment of the perceptual and cognitive analysis of music and its emotional effect. This approach can be applied both to acquired and congenital deficits of musical listening, and to aberrant listening in patients with musical hallucinations. Both the bases for normal musical listening and the clinical assessment of disorders now have a solid grounding in systems neuroscience

Download Free PDF Ebooks Artificial Intelligence as a Positive and Negative Factor in Global Risk
By far the greatest danger of Artificial Intelligence is that people conclude too early that they understand it. Of course this problem is not limited to the field of AI. Jacques Monod wrote: "A curious aspect of the theory of evolution is that everybody thinks he understands it." (Monod 1974.) My father, a physicist, complained about people making up their own theories of physics; he wanted to know why people did not make up their own theories of chemistry. (They do.) Nonetheless the problem seems to be unusually acute in Artificial Intelligence. The field of AI has a reputation for making huge promises and then failing to deliver on them. Most observers conclude that AI is hard; as indeed it is. But the embarrassment does not stem from the difficulty. It is difficult to build a star from hydrogen, but the field of stellar astronomy does not have a terrible reputation for promising to build stars and then failing. The critical inference is not that AI is hard, but that, for some reason, it is very easy for people to think they know far more about Artificial Intelligence than they actually do.

Finally, this paper presents Trillium’s solutions which enable wireless communications and Internet infrastructure equipment manufacturers to develop 3G network elements for quick and efficient deployment.

Third Generation (3G) mobile devices and services will transform wireless communications into on-line, real-time connectivity. 3G wireless technology will allow an individual to have immediate access to location-specific services that offer information on demand. The first generation of mobile phones consisted of the analog models that emerged in the early 1980s. The second generation of digital mobile phones appeared about ten years later along with the first digital mobile networks. During the second generation, the mobile telecommunications industry experienced exponential growth both in terms of subscribers as well as new types of value-added services. Mobile phones are rapidly becoming the preferred means of personal communication, creating the world's largest consumer electronics industry.

Download Free PDF Ebooks Programming Linux Games
This PDF Ebook is for anyone who wants to learn how to write games for Linux. I assume that you know the basics of working with Linux; if you know enough to start X, open a terminal, copy around, and are up a text editor, you're good to go. I also assume that you have a reasonable grasp of the C programming language. Flip through the book and see if you can decipher the syntax of the examples. We'll go through all of the necessary library calls, so don't worry if you see a bunch of unfamiliar function names, but you should be able to understand the majority of the actual code. No prior experience with multimedia programming is assumed, so don't worry if you've never had the perverse pleasure of hacking a graphics register or shoving a pixel into memory. All in good time!

Although this isn't a reference manual in the traditional sense, chapters 4, 5, 6, and 8 provide reference boxes for most of the API functions we cover. I hope that even experienced multimedia programmers can and something useful here. I will not discuss 3D programming in this book. There are already plenty of excellent books on OpenGL, and only a small bit of OpenGL programming is directly related to Linux. However, I will demonstrate how to use SDL as an efective replacement for the GLUT toolkit; see page 140.

Download PDF Ebooks Linux vs. Windows: A comparison of application and platform innovation incentives for open source and proprietary software platforms+
The PDF paper analyzes and compares the investment incentives of platform and application developers for Linux and Windows. We find that the level of investment in applications is larger when the operating system is open source rather than proprietary. The comparison of the levels of investment in the operating systems depends, among others, on reputation effects and the number of developers. The paper also develops a short case study comparing Windows and Linux and identifies new directions for open source software research.

Download Free PDF Hackproofing MySQL
MySQL claims to be the world's most popular open source database, and with good reason. It is free, runs on a wide variety of platforms, is relatively simple, easy to configure and performs well even under significant load. By comparison to some other popular database management systems, configuring it is quite simple, but there are still a sufficiently wide variety of security-relevant configuration issues to make securing it a challenge.

This Free PDF Ebooks is a brief outline of common attacks on MySQL and the steps that a MySQL administrator can take to defend against them.

MySQL AB actively maintain several versions of their database software, and determining which version to install can be somewhat confusing. From a security point of view the decision is further complicated by the fact that additional security features are often available in 'alpha' versions but not in the current 'production' version.

Free PDF Ebook Bronchial Asthma and Acupuncture

Free PDF Ebook Bronchial Asthma and Acupuncture

This paper reviews a number of clinical trials and outcome studies on the use of acupuncture to treat asthma. None of the trials had a large sample size and they suffer from the problems common to all acupuncture trials, such as what constitutes appropriate treatment and a suitable “control”. The outcome studies avoid some of these problems but many lack rigour or adequate description of measurements used. This paper reviews the trials that appeared most sound in methodological terms, together with those outcome studies that had relatively large samples. The trials are divided into two groups: those treating patients as part of normal clinical management and those treating patients suffering an induced asthma attack. The
findings for the first group are inconsistent, particularly as regards objective measures of lung function. There is, however, evidence that acupuncture can improve patients’ subjective experience of their symptoms, reduce their use of medication and improve immunological parameters. The smaller number of trials of induced asthma is more consistently positive.

Download Free PDF Ebook General Issues in House Design
ONE OF THE MISTAKES that home designers — yes, even green home designers — make is failing to step back and look at the big picture. Instead, they quickly get into specifics about materials, construction details, and which appliances to buy. A better idea is to begin your design process by considering a number of broad, overarching issues. Whether you have hired a designer or are designing your home yourself, begin with the big issues, then zero in on the details. This chapter examines a few of these general issues, focusing on those that can help to make your home environmentally friendly.
IS A STAND-ALONE, SINGLE-FAMILY HOUSE WHAT YOU REALLY WANT?
Since the 1940s, the American dream has been the single-family home. Billions of dollars in advertising, countless television shows, and a wide range of government policies have fueled our desire for that brandspanking new, single-family suburban home. For many, this image is rounded out by a shiny SUV parked in the driveway out front, a Sunday afternoon on the riding lawnmower, and a backyard deck looking out on their own “little piece of paradise.” Indeed, there is much to be said for owning a single-family home on its own lot. You have privacy. You and your family make the decisions about how your house looks, how it’s landscaped, and the protection provided by your little oasis. You’re in charge.

Advanced Linux Programming
GNU/Linux has taken the world of computers by storm.At one time, personal computer
users were forced to choose among proprietary operating environments and applications. Users had no way of fixing or improving these programs, could not look “under the hood,” and were often forced to accept restrictive licenses. GNU/Linux and other open source systems have changed that—now PC users, administrators, and developers can choose a free operating environment complete with tools, applications, and full source code.
A great deal of the success of GNU/Linux is owed to its open source nature. Because the source code for programs is publicly available, everyone can take part in development, whether by fixing a small bug or by developing and distributing a complete major application.This opportunity has enticed thousands of capable developers worldwide to contribute new components and improvements to GNU/Linux, to the point that modern GNU/Linux systems rival the features of any proprietary system, and distributions include thousands of programs and applications spanning many CDROMs or DVDs.
