The Scottish Economy Kenneth Gibb 2017-07-06 The Scottish economy is at the heart of contemporary constitutional and public policy debates. This substantial new edited collection, the first comprehensive and authoritative analysis for more than 60 years, is a timely update on the classic volume of the same name edited by Sir Alec Cairncross in 1954. It is data rich, and offers links to updatable data and leading indicators of the Scottish economy including measures of public finances, distributional evidence and growth. Readers will find a series of easy to follow chapters covering the Scottish economy from every angle – oil and gas, health, education, finance, rural Scotland, inequality, climate change, gender and work, housing, infrastructure and cities. Each sector-based chapter explores the main issues, draws out key empirical facts and considers policy challenges that lie ahead. This book includes: an historical account of the development of the Scottish economy; the trajectory of economic policy in Scotland; reviews of the current fiscal position and the wider economic landscape; and also an intriguing insight into the emerging distinctive approach to Scottish public policy. This book brings together evidence and high quality research by experts on the Scottish economy in a politically neutral, accessible and non-technical way. The volume will assist readers in navigating their way through the many political debates about constitutional and economic futures that are underway in modern Scotland and the UK. A website also exists to accompany The Scottish Economy - In today's inter-connected world, it makes sense to have a book on the Scottish economy supplemented by online access to important data, information and evidence as a means of keeping material current.

Southern Missions Charles Reagan Wilson 2006 This book places the religious history of the American South in a global context. The global connections of southern religion reflect a tradition within the American South that historians have failed to examine. This study sweeps from the diversity of Christian and Jewish groups in the colonial South to the contemporary migration of ethnic groups and their religious traditions previously little known in the South. Perhaps most notably, gender emerges as a key analytical category for understanding the global reach of religion in the American South.
Agent Intelligence Through Data Mining Andreas L.

Meaningful Stuff Jonathan Chapman 2021-08-03 An argument for a design philosophy of better, not more. Never have we wanted, owned, and wasted so much stuff. Our consumptive path through modern life leaves a wake of social and ecological destruction--sneakers worn only once, bicycles barely even ridden, and forgotten smartphones languishing in drawers. By what perverse alchemy do our newest, coolest things so readily transform into meaningless junk? In Meaningful Stuff, Jonathan Chapman investigates why we throw away things that still work, and shows how we can design products, services, and systems that last. Obsolescence is an economically driven design decision--a plan to hasten a product's functional or psychological undesirability. Many electronic devices, for example, are intentionally impossible to dismantle for repair or recycling, their brief use-career proceeding inexorably to a landfill. A sustainable design specialist who serves as a consultant to global businesses and governmental organizations, Chapman calls for the decoupling of economic activity from mindless material consumption and shows how to do it. Chapman shares his vision for an "experience heavy, material light" design sensibility. This vital and timely new design philosophy reveals how meaning emerges from designed encounters between people and things, explores ways to increase the quality and longevity of our relationships with objects and the systems behind them, and ultimately demonstrates why design can--and must--lead the transition to a sustainable future.

Mining Software Engineering Data for Software Reuse Themistoklis Diamantopoulos 2020-03-30 This monograph discusses software reuse and how it can be applied at different stages of the software development process, on different types of data and at different levels of granularity. Several challenging hypotheses are analyzed and confronted using novel data-driven methodologies, in order to solve problems in requirements elicitation and specification extraction, software design and implementation, as well as software quality assurance. The book is accompanied by a number of tools, libraries and working prototypes in order to practically illustrate how the phases of the software engineering life cycle can benefit from unlocking the potential of data. Software engineering researchers, experts, and practitioners can benefit from the various methodologies presented and can better understand how knowledge extracted from software data residing in various repositories can be combined and used to enable effective decision making and save considerable time and effort through software reuse. Mining Software Engineering Data for Software Reuse can also prove handy for graduate-level students in software engineering.

Problems in Programming Andrej Vitek 1991-11-12 The book compiles solved problems from the high-school computer science competitions in Slovenia. The solutions are grouped by their subject into the following chapters: easy problems, comoputing, recursive functions, sorting and arranging, graphs, process control in real-time, computer graphics and other problems. Each chapter begins with an introduction, giving the common details of the solutions that follow in chronological order. The introductions and the themselves, embody the answers into a wider realm from which the problem originates, and reveal some of the background, that led to the formulation of the exercise. The programs, accompanying the solutions, indicate the esential characteristics of the proper programming style. The detailed analyses, accompanying some of the solutions, indicate that perfect programming requires not only the knowledge of a programming language, a bit of good will and a little of common sence, but quite a lot more.

Teaching Fundamental Concepts of Informatics Juraj Hromkovič 2009-12-02 The International Conference on Informatics in Secondary Schools: Evolution and Perspective (ISSEP) is an emerging forum for researchers and practitioners in the area of computer science education with a focus on secondary schools. The ISSEP series started in 2005 in Klagenfurt, and continued in 2006 in Vilnius, and in 2008 in Torun. ́ The 4th ISSEP took part in Zurich. This volume presents 4 of the 5 invited talks and 14 regular contributions chosen from 32 submissions to ISSEP 2010. The ISSEP conference series is devoted to all aspects of computer science teaching. In the preface of the proceedings of ISSEP 2006, Roland Mittermeir wrote: “ISSEP aims at educating ‘informatics proper’ by showing the beauty of the discipline, hoping to create interest in a later professional career in c- puting, and it will give answers di?erent from the opinion of those who used to familiarize pupils with the basics of ICT in order to achieve computer lit- acy for the young generation. ” This is an important message at this time, when several countries have reduced teaching informatics to educating about current softwarepackagesthatchangefromyeartoyear. ThegoalofISSEPistosupport teaching of the basic concepts and methods of informatics, thereby making it a subject in secondary schools that is comparable in depth and requirements with mathematics or natural sciences. As we tried to present in our book “Algori- mic Adventures.

Academic Writing and Publishing James Hartley 2008-04-22 Academic Writing and Publishing will show academics (mainly in the social sciences) how to write and publish research articles. Its aim is to supply examples and brief discussions of recent work in all aspects of the area in short, sharp chapters. It should serve as a handbook for postgraduates and lecturers new to publishing. The book is written in a readable and lively personal style. The advice given is direct and based on up-to-date research that goes beyond that given in current textbooks. For example, the chapter on titles lists different kinds of titles and their purposes not discussed in other texts. The chapter on abstracts instructs the reader on writing structured abstracts from the start.
