Women

Author: Bernard Chapin
Publisher: iUniverse
ISBN: 9780595443604
Release Date: 2007-09
Genre: Social Science

In Women: Theory and Practice, Bernard Chapin challenges the accepted theories of feminism and sexual equality in this thought-provoking, revolutionary look at the battle of the sexes in the twenty-first century. This book captures the true essence of today's apocryphal gap between men and women and how it affects not only the workplace, but also romantic relationships and the interactions of men and women everywhere. Chapin introduces a truly contrarian argument against society's current atmosphere of political correctness. He also makes a convincing case for the hidden damage caused by the women's movement and the popular mindset that women are no longer just the fairer sex, they are the better sex. Chapin questions the rationale behind policies and laws created to protect women's rights and to construct equality in the workplace. Chapin describes society's current backlash against men and how it has created a culture that has wrongly declared women to be intellectually, morally, and emotionally superior. Women: Theory and Practice provides a clear, rational argument against a popular socio-political atmosphere that has turned women into demi-gods, and men into second class citizens.

Theory and Practice

Author: J?rgen Habermas
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9780745694184
Release Date: 2015-10-07
Genre: Political Science

Theory and Practice is one of Habermas's major works and is widely recognized as a classic in contemporary and social and political theory. Through a series of highly original historical studies, Habermas re-examines the relations between philosophy, science and politics. Beginning with the classical doctrine of politics as developed by Aristotle, he traces the changing constellation of theory and practice through the work of Machiavelli, More, Hobbes, Hegel and Marx. He argues that, with the development of the modern sciences, politics has become increasingly regarded as a technical discipline concerned with problems of prediction and control. Politics has thus lost its link with the practical cultivation of character, that is, with the praxis of enlightened citizens. Theory and Practices includes a major re-assessment of Marx's work and of the status of Marxism as a form of critique. In an important concluding chapter Habermas examines the role of reason and the prospects for critical theory in our modern scientific civilization.

ISBN: 0080556019
Release Date: 2010-07-26
Genre: Computers

Reconfigurable Computing marks a revolutionary and hot topic that bridges the gap between the separate worlds of hardware and software design— the key feature of reconfigurable computing is its groundbreaking ability to perform computations in hardware to increase performance while retaining the flexibility of a software solution. Reconfigurable computers serve as affordable, fast, and accurate tools for developing designs ranging from single chip architectures to multi-chip and embedded systems. Scott Hauck and Andre DeHon have assembled a group of the key experts in the fields of both hardware and software computing to provide an introduction to the entire range of issues relating to reconfigurable computing. FPGAs (field programmable gate arrays) act as the “computing vehicles to implement this powerful technology. Readers will be guided into adopting a completely new way of handling existing design concerns and be able to make use of the vast opportunities possible with reconfigurable logic in this rapidly evolving field. Designed for both hardware and software programmers Views of reconfigurable programming beyond standard programming languages Broad set of case studies demonstrating how to use FPGAs in novel and efficient ways

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783662029701
Release Date: 2013-03-14
Genre: Technology & Engineering

High reliability, maintainability, and safety are expected from complex equipment and systems. To build these characteristics into an item, failure rate and failure mode analyses have to be performed early in the design phase, starting at the com ponent level, and have to be supported by a set of design guidelines for reliability and maintainability as well as by extensive design reviews. Before production, qualification tests of prototypes must ensure that quality and reliability targets have been reached. In the production phase, processes and procedures have to be selec ted and monitored to assure the required quality level. For many systems, availabi lity requirements must also be satisfied. In these cases, stochastic processes can be used to investigate and optimize availability, including logistical support. This book presents the state of the art of the methods and procedures necessary for a cost and time effective quality and reliability assurance during the design and production of equipment and systems. It takes into consideration that: 1. Quality and reliability assurance of complex equipment and systems requires that all engineers involved in a project undertake a set of specific activities from the definition to the operating phase, which are performed concurrently to achieve the best performance, quality, and reliability for given cost and time schedule targets.

The book begins with the editors� introduction to the state of the field, providing an overview of both current and developing lines of research, and builds on this foundation to look at this research more closely, grouped around three different sections: Queer Theorizing of Translation; Case Studies of Queer Translations and Translators; and Queer Activism and Translation. This interdisciplinary approach seeks to not only shed light on this promising field of research but also to promote cross fertilization between these disciplines towards further exploring the intersections between queer studies and translation studies, making this volume key reading for students and scholars interested in translation studies, queer studies, politics, and activism, and gender and sexuality studies.
