An industry training men in the art of seduction -- estimated to be worth $100 million USD -- encourages its clients to treat women and themselves as commodities in a sexual marketplace, a new study has found.
When Mount St. Helens erupted 38 years ago today, it not only dramatically transformed more than 200 square miles that previously contained vast forests, fast-flowing streams, and sparkling mountain lakes, it also created unprecedented research opportunities for scientists. Nearly four decades later, much of what has been learned at this living laboratory is revealed in a new book that presents key science lessons and messages from the volcano.
The book presents simple information that enhances the reader's understanding about various aspects of fractional calculus.
This book presents information about the application of the 'interest rate model' for risk management goals. When using this model to generate interest rate scenarios for the risk management, the scenarios should be generated with the real probabilities, so called the real-world measure. For this purpose, the interest rate model should be specified under the real-world measure, which is called the 'real-world model' in practice.
This edited volume addresses psychedelic science from three different viewpoints. The first addresses the way social scientists and historians treat the history of psychiatry and healing, the second describes psychedelic substances and their effects on the human body, and the third dimension focuses on the use of psychedelics in traditional healing.
The lack of maintainability considerations during the design and construction stages lead to building defects which accounts to billions of dollars expenditures throughout the building's lifecycle. Can we really reduce the cost of maintaining a building? Michael Yit Lin Chew, Ashan Asmone and Sheila Conejos believe so.
Despite massive breakthroughs in the field of neuroscience over the last century, one area continues to baffle both scientists and philosophers: How do molecules, cells, neurotransmitters and other brain 'stuff' create the abstract experience of self-awareness?
If you follow either traditional news sources or social media, you would have heard strikingly different assertions about climate change. Is it a 'hoax created by the Chinese' or 'the most urgent issue confronting the world' today? Answering such questions requires some understanding of how science is done, on the one hand, and specifically the state-of-the-art of the relevant science. And 'Science of the Earth, Climate and Energy' does just that.
'Technology Roadmapping' is a product of collaboration between the book editor, Tugrul Daim and industry experts around the world. The book provides a framework for decision-makers in technology-driven organizations to manage technology.
Leaders in applied computational organic chemistry review the state-of-the-art in the field and offer practical advice for computing structures and reactivity of organic molecules of relevance to synthetic, biological and materials organic chemistry.
