Improving Memory and Study Skills Herrmann, D: Improving Memory
This text is designed to serve as a primary text for teaching the science of studying to university and other students. Divided into five main sections, 13 chapters deal with: (1) Fundamentals, including scientific findings concerning learning and studying, and the physiological and psychological basis of memory; (2) Physical and emotional state when studying/taking exams; (3) How best to store and remember information; (4) Using the environment and things around us to help; (5) Integrating the above. Improving Memory and Study Skills is based on the latest research, including that of the authors, on how students study, learn, and remember. The authors collectively have over 100 years of experience in teaching and research about how students can learn more efficiently. This text presents both the rationale and the methods that have led to a new and successful multimodal approach to developing memory and study skills. Not only is the book full of practical recommendations for both teaching and learning these skills. In addition, the scientific reasons for the suggested procedures are clearly laid out, and the explanations in turn are grounded in practical examples. Each of the 13 chapters is rounded off by a concise summary of the most salient points, and the book itself is completed by a comprehensive glossary, and full author and subject indexes.

A provocative look at research and practice in suicide prevention - a "must read" for all concerned. This provocative and erudite book highlights theoretical and methodological challenges that have plagued and continue to plague the field of suicidology. The basic premise is that recent research has not served to advance our understanding of suicidal behavior, but tends to repeat older research, often apparently without awareness that we are often merely "reinventing the wheel". As the authors maintain: "Very little of consequence has appeared in suicidology for many years - no new theory and no ground-breaking research." The book discusses the contributions that each of the major disciplines have made to suicidology (is there a misplaced devotion to Durkheim's 100-year-old theories?), and provide an overview of research and theories in some typical areas. Drawing from this, specific recommendations as to what researchers and theorists can do in the future to advance our understanding of suicide and suicide prevention are offered. It is hoped that these recommendations will stimulate research and theorizing so that our understanding of suicide will progress.

American artist Ed Ruscha began making prints and drawings consisting of one word or phrase in the late 1950s and has continued to explore the language-based imagery that has become a hallmark of his work. Pictured here are 500 of his "word" drawings which transcend their apparent randomness to become visual icons of universal emotions and places known and imagined. Full color.

Die Geschichte der Kunst Gombrich, E: Geschichte d. Kunst
Sir Ernst Gombrich gilt als einer der größten und unkonventionellsten Kunsthistoriker seiner Zeit, der in zwei unterschiedlichen Lebensbereichen zu Ruhm und Auszeichnung gelangte: als Gelehrter, der die Kunst dem Menschen nahe brachte, und als Pionier, der die Wahrnehmung aus dem Bereich der Psychologie auf die Betrachtung der Kunst übertrug. Sein bekanntestes Buch, Die Geschichte der Kunst, wurde zum ersten Mal vor 60 Jahren veröffentlicht und erscheint nun in der 16. Ausgabe. Es ist eines der einflussreichsten Bücher über Kunst, das je geschrieben wurde.
Asymptote, an award-winning New York City -- based architectural firm, expands the boundaries of traditional architectural practice with work that ranges from buildings and urban design to computer-generated environments. Recognized internationally as both leading-edge architects and virtual-reality artists as well as sought-after critics and teachers, Asymptote partners Lise Anne Couture and Hani Rashid have emphasized research into cultural trends and technological influences as the core of their practice. The firm has completed or is overseeing projects around the world, with commissions as diverse as a trading floor for the New York Stock Exchange; a multimedia research park in Kyoto, Japan; a modular furniture system for the Knoll furniture company; a music theater in Graz, Austria; and a new center for art and technology for the Guggenheim Museum in SoHo, New York. Designed and written by the partners, Asymptote is the first book to fully document their "real world" (as opposed to virtual) projects.In mathematical terms, the word "asymptote" is defined as a line that a given curve gets closer and closer to, but never touches, as it gets further from the origin towards infinity. In architectural terms, Asymptote is the Manhattan-based architectural design and research practice established by Lise Anne Couture and Hani Rashid in 1989.Rashid and Couture's work is intriguing because it draws inspiration from a wide range of sources not traditionally associated with architecture -- among them the design of airline interiors, sporting equipment, and organic systems like seashells and honeycombs; and various means of communicating and disseminating information. Their projects areconcerned as much with light, speed, and traversing virtual boundaries as with "real-world" geometries and building systems. Hani Rashid is one of the founding instructors in the "paperless studio" curriculum at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, a progra
Personality Assessment. Methods and Practices
This highly regarded book, now in its third, fully revised edition, is a survey of concepts, methods, procedures, and materials concerning the assessment of personality. It emphasizes the means and methods of assessment, but theories, research, and issues concerning human personality that have influenced psychological assessment are also considered. It is designed primarily for use in a one-semester course on personality assessment at the upper undergraduate or beginning graduate level. In addition to being a textbook, this volume is a useful source book, providing coverage of a wide range of instruments and procedures, a comprehensive glossary, an appendix of test publishers and addresses, an extensive bibliography, and complete indexes of authors, subjects, and tests. These features add to the book's value as a reference source for professional psychologists and researchers in the behavioral sciences. Each of the 13 chapters of the book ends with a summary, a set of exercises and activities, and a list of suggested readings for further study of the topic.
- Berlin-based sculptor, photographer and installation artist Olafur Eliasson (b.1967) creates works that explore the relationships between human beings, nature and technology - The artist re-creates fragments of the natural environment: icebergs at the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, a wind tunnel at the Louisiana Museum in Humlebaek, Denmark - Eliasson uses immaterial sensations such as temperature, smell, taste, air and magnetic waves for his sculptural elements - Nominated in 2002 for the prestigious Hugo Boss prize, in 2003-4 Eliasson earned rave reviews for his representation of a giant sun and sky at Tate Modern in London

A high proportion of couples in western industrialized countries are unable to have children, and in many cases these couples need psychosocial support. This book describes a range of counseling and therapy approaches that can be used in a variety of circumstances. The approaches described here provide concrete assistance and advice on psychosocial interventions for all professionals who are active in reproductive medicine, fertility treatment, and counseling or therapy for couples. The book introduces the most recent knowledge about psychosomatic treatment of fertility disorders, and describes assessment methods that can be used in everyday practice by those providing both medical treatment and counseling for fertility disorders. On the basis of numerous case examples, various different approaches to counseling and therapy are described, including, for example, specific approaches that can be taken by primary care or family physicians, or how to approach the problems in couples with different cultural backgrounds. A manual for gynecologists in the final chapter provides concrete advice and guidelines for a holistic, psychosomatic course of treatment for childless couples.
