Are we our brains? How can you map the mind? Can brain scans read our minds?Based on Rob Newman's live stand-up show and new BBC Radio 4 series, his thought-provoking new book explores the scientific breakthroughs that have turned received ideas of brain science upside down. After imagining volunteering for a brain-imaging experiment meant to locate the part of the brain that lights up when you're in love, comedian Robert Newman emerged with more questions than answers. In Neuropolis Newman argues that the current claim that the brain is just a complicated computer derives from science, but from a combination of philosophical stowaways and a version of evolutionary biology that owes little to Darwin. He questions why brain science is devoted to such a peculiarly reductionist world view, when really exciting advances in neuroscience go untold, such as awe-inspiring discoveries about the origins of memory in ancient oceans. He also shows that our brains are inextricably and profoundly intertwined with our bodies, the natural world and the world we have made, including hilarious accounts of his own participation in neurological experiments. Debunking the common, even brainless interpretations of brain science, he celebrates the more intriguing and underreported advances in neuroscience with zest and wit.

The essays in The Humanities in the Age of Information and Post-Truth represent a defense of the social function of the humanities in today's society. Edited by Ignacio Lopez-Calvo and Christina Lux, the volume explains different ways in which the humanities and the arts, beyond their intrinsic and nonfunctional value, may be a valuable tool in our search for social justice, human empathy, freedom, and peace, all the while helping us answer many of the twenty-first century's big questions. Some essays explore the ways in which the humanities may help us imagine a different, more just world, and articulate politically effective mechanisms to achieve such goals. Others address the place of the humanities and the arts amid the ontological and epistemological uncertainties constantly produced in a fast-changing world. While the reader may suspect that these types of lucubration are a desperate reaction to decreased public funding for the humanities worldwide, a decreased enrollment of students, or anxiety over the future of our profession, there is in this volume a coherent argument for the continued need, perhaps more now than ever, to invest in humanities education if we are to have informed and socially conscious citizens rather than just willing consumers and obedient workers. Furthermore, the essays prove that the humanities and the arts are, after all, not a luxury but an integral part of a complete scholarly education.
This pathbreaking work uses the approaching conclusion of the
second millennium as a context for discussing questions concerning
temporal division and narrative continuity. It investigates
assumptions about teleology and eschatology while exploring the
ways in which temporal division affects the creation and production
of cultural texts and, reciprocally, the ways in which narrative
techniques, forms, and conventions shape, explain, and justify
Ward Edwards and J. Robert Newman clearly explain Multiattribute Utility Technology (MAUT), a technique that facilitates decision making by identifying and weighting the objectives of the stakeholders in a specific decision.
In recent years, MEMS have revolutionized the semiconductor industry, with sensors being a particularly buoyant sector. Smart MEMS and Sensor Systems presents readers with the means to understand, evaluate, appreciate and participate in the development of the field, from a unique systems perspective.The combination of MEMS and integrated intelligence has been put forward as a disruptive technology. The full potential of this technology is only evident when it is used to construct very large pervasive sensing systems. The book explores the many different technologies needed to build such systems and integrates knowledge from three different domains: MEMS technology, sensor system electronics and pervasive computing science.Throughout the book a top-down design perspective is taken, be it for the development of a single smart sensor or that of adaptive ad-hoc networks of millions of sensors.For experts in any of the domains named above the book provides the context for their MEMS based design work and an understanding of the role the other domains play. For the generalist (either in engineering or computing) or the technology manager the underpinning knowledge is provided, which can inform specialist decision making.
A swashbuckling, rolicking tale of espionage, intrigue, and adventure, that also smartly investigates the pervasive forces of corporations and capitalism Elizabethean England is a Golden Age of trade and art; merchants and poets from across the world pack London s streets. There s a new commodity people need oil. And young Nat Bramble knows just where to get it. Nat and Darius Nouredini, a poet in a wrestler s body, set off in search of the secret oil well under the abandoned Temple of Mithras in Persia. But their venture lights a trail of fire which will follow Nat all the way back to England, where he becomes caught in the crossfire of a war between the crown and the first corporations of London."
Security and Access Control Using Biometric Technologies presents an introduction to biometrics or the study of recognizing individuals based on their unique physical or behavioral traits, as they relate to computer security. The book begins with the basics of biometric technologies and discusses how and why biometric systems are emerging in information security. An emphasis is directed towards authentication, authorization, identification, and access control. Topics covered include security and management required to protect valuable computer and network resources and assets, and methods of providing control over access and security for computers and networks. Written for a broad level of readers, this book applies to information system and information technology students, as well as network managers, security administrators and other practitioners. Oriented towards the practical application of biometrics in the real world, Security and Access Control Using Biometric Technologies provides the reader with a realistic view of the use of biometrics in the ever-changing industry of information security.
If you're wondering why an entire book is devoted to one fruit, the pomegranate, wonder no more. With its complex qualities, including its highly concentrated supply of antioxidants, its ability to regulate hormones and its anti-bacterial, antifungal and antiviral qualities, this fruit stands out in high profile, even among all the marvels of contemporary natural medicine and therapeutic nutrition.
This book investigates why the pomegranate deserves to be called the "The Most Medicinal Fruit" and discusses how pomegranate can help:
This book, also, reveals the natural slimming properties of pomegranate and its beneficial effect on the appearance and elasticity of the skin and gives specific advice on how consumers can get the most comprehensive results from this complex fruit.
After many centuries in which the pomegranate's medical usefulness was revered but then forgotten in the stampede of pharmaceuticals, the pomegranate is again approaching center stage as a modern-day fountain of health.
