The substantial burden of death and disability that results from interpersonal violence, road traffic injuries, unintentional injuries, occupational health risks, air pollution, climate change, and inadequate water and sanitation falls disproportionally on low- and middle-income countries. Injury Prevention and Environmental Health addresses the risk factors and presents updated data on the burden, as well as economic analyses of platforms and packages for delivering cost-effective and feasible interventions in these settings. The volume's contributors demonstrate that implementation of a range of prevention strategies-presented in an essential package of interventions and policies-could achieve a convergence in death and disability rates that would avert more than 7.5 million deaths a year.

ما هي بالضبط اللحظة التي تحـول أثناءهـا مـن إنسـان سـوي تمامًا، وعادي، يأمن له الناس، ويبادلونه تلك المشاعر العادية بين الإنسان والإنسان- إلى كائن يبادله الآخرون مشاعر غريبة، مشاعر لا تكون إلا بين الإنسان والوحش؟ والمشاعر العاديـة ليست دائمًا "حبًا"، إنهـا قـد تـكـون كراهيـة، أو حقدًا، أو لا مبالاة؛ لكنهـا تظـل في إطـار العـلاق بين الإنسان والإنسـان، بمعنى أن طرفيهـا يتبادلان علاقات "بشرية" بين اثنين ينتميان لنفـس النـوع، لكـن الخُـط خـلـق بينـه وبين الآخريـن نوعًا غريبًا مـن العلاقـة، طرفاهـا: التجبر گـوحـش مـن ناحيته، والخـوف الغريـب مـن ناحيـة النـاس، وهكـذا تعامـل الناس مـعـه كمـا لـو كانـوا يتعاملون مع "كائن"، لا ينتمي لدنيا البشر، يخافونه أبلغ الـوان الخـوف، ويرهبون مجـرد ذكـر اسـمه، ويتعاملـون مـعـه كظاهـرة مرعبة مـن ظواهر الطبيعـة؛ لا يستطيعون لها صدًا، ولا يقدرون على مواجهتها.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the veteran political journalist and 60 Minutes correspondent, a deep dive into the history, evolution, and current state of the American presidency, and how we can make the job less impossible and more productive—featuring a new post-2020–election epilogue “This is a great gift to our sense of the actual presidency, a primer on leadership.”—Ken Burns Imagine you have just been elected president. You are now commander-in-chief, chief executive, chief diplomat, chief legislator, chief of party, chief voice of the people, first responder, chief priest, and world leader. You’re expected to fulfill your campaign promises, but you’re also expected to solve the urgent crises of the day. What’s on your to-do list? Where would you even start? What shocks aren’t you thinking about? The American presidency is in trouble. It has become overburdened, misunderstood, almost impossible to do. “The problems in the job unfolded before Donald Trump was elected, and the challenges of governing today will confront his successors,” writes John Dickerson. After all, the founders never intended for our system of checks and balances to have one superior Chief Magistrate, with Congress demoted to “the little brother who can’t keep up.” In this eye-opening book, John Dickerson writes about presidents in history such a Washington, Lincoln, FDR, and Eisenhower, and and in contemporary times, from LBJ and Reagan and Bush, Obama, and Trump, to show how a complex job has been done, and why we need to reevaluate how we view the presidency, how we choose our presidents, and what we expect from them once they are in office. Think of the presidential campaign as a job interview. Are we asking the right questions? Are we looking for good campaigners, or good presidents? Once a candidate gets the job, what can they do to thrive? Drawing on research and interviews with current and former White House staffers, Dickerson defines what the job of president actually entails, identifies the things that only the president can do, and analyzes how presidents in history have managed the burden. What qualities make for a good president? Who did it well? Why did Bill Clinton call the White House “the crown jewel in the American penal system”? The presidency is a job of surprises with high stakes, requiring vision, management skill, and an even temperament. Ultimately, in order to evaluate candidates properly for the job, we need to adjust our expectations, and be more realistic about the goals, the requirements, and the limitations of the office. As Dickerson writes, “Americans need their president to succeed, but the presidency is set up for failure. It doesn’t have to be.”


Designing Electronic Product Enclosures

This text explains the process of the design of product electronic enclosures. These products typically contain a printed circuit board. The text takes the reader from the original idea for a product, through the shipment in quantity to a customer. For the product enclosure designer, this proceeds through design layout, material selection, prototype building, testing, and ongoing design improvement. The book presents a substantive and lucid treatment of the structural, thermal, user-interface, assembly, quality control, and cost considerations of the product enclosure. Of special note is a discussion on the regulatory issues involved with the design of a product. A main thrust of the text is on the "commercialization" aspects of electronic products, that is, when an enclosure is needed for the product to meet environmental and certification requirements globally. The book targets the broadest audience tasked to design/manufacture an enclosure, from mechanical/industrial engineers to designers and technicians. While the intent of the text is not to provide a complete understanding of relevant physical phenomena addressed (strength of materials, shock and vibration, heat transfer), the book provides a ready reference on how and where these key properties may be considered in the design of most electronic enclosures. Elucidates successful enclosure design for electronic products, defining the design team and the definition of success Explains the processes for building enclosures, including printed circuit board layout (mechanical considerations) and optimal object placement, structural considerations, material selection, and user interface design Includes treatment of serviceability, product environments, standards and testing, cooling techniques as well as guidelines for Electromagnetic Compliance (EMC) standards and testing required to pass FCC/CE Reinforces design concepts presented with relevant solved problems

First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.
