Winnie-the-Pooh is the most popular children's book in the world. Icelandic is a language read and spoken by three hundred thousand people in Iceland and a few thousand people in Europe and America plus a few in an Icelandic colony in Manitoba Canada. Icelandic may be the oldest language in the world that is still spoken unchanged. The Icelanders have tried to keep the language the same as it was when Iceland was first settled in 874 AD. The Icelandic Sagas can easily be read by every educated Icelander. They describe the early settlement of Greenland and Vinland in America which is believed to have been Nova Scotia.This translation of Winnie-the-Pooh follows the original book closely. The purpose of this book is to help Icelandic speakers learn English and to help English speakers learn Icelandic. To have a translation as close as possible to the original is the most useful. Bangsimon is the Icelandic name for Winnie-the-Pooh. Bangsi is the Icelandic word for teddy-bear. Mon means “my”. So, Bangsimon means “My Teddy-Bear”. There are several books about Winnie-the-Pooh in Iceland. Icelandic children call their teddy bears “Bangsimon”. Bangsimon is a traditional name for Winnie-the-Pooh in Iceland. It is not just the name given to it by the translator. The rabbit is Kaninka. Christopher Robin is Jakob Kristófer. Ishi Press has reprinted translations of Winnie-the-Pooh into 17 languages thus far. We have published it in Russian, Bulgarian, German, Dutch, Armenian, Polish, S...

Master's Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Health Science, California State University, Northridge, language: English, abstract: This project focused on implementing a needs assessment to measure baseline knowledge of college females on fertility awareness and to see if there was an interest for a curriculum addressing fertility awareness. The sample consisted of one hundred and fifty-seven (N = 157) college females who were given a needs assessment on their knowledge of the menstrual cycle, self-efficacy in interpreting fertility biomarkers, and desire for educational opportunities in fertility awareness. Statistical analysis showed a small correlation between an increase in age and self-efficacy in fertility awareness and Hispanic/Latinos scored significantly higher than Black/African Americans on the self-efficacy scale. The results of the needs assessment also indicated a desire for an educational opportunity in fertility awareness. Four content experts validated the curriculum that was created from the needs assessment, using a 10-point Likert scale. Future research needs to focus on racial and ethnic discrepancies on knowledge of the menstrual cycle and health education programs need to focus on menstrual and fertility awareness education for adult women.

Petri Nets were defined for the study of discrete events systems and later extended for many purposes including dependability assessment. In our knowledge, no book deals specifically with the use of different type of PN to dependability. We propose in addition to bring a focus on the adequacy of Petri net types to the study of various problems related to dependability such as risk analysis and probabilistic assessment. In the first part, the basic models of PN and some useful extensions are briefly recalled. In the second part, the PN are used as a formal model to describe the evolution process of critical system in the frame of an ontological approach. The third part focuses on the stochastic Petri Nets (SPN) and their use in dependability assessment. Different formal models of SPN are formally presented (semantics, evolution rules…) and their equivalence with the corresponding class of Markov processes to get an analytical assessment of dependability. Simplification methods are proposed in order to reduce the size of analytical model and to make it more calculable. The introduction of some concepts specific to high level PN allows too the consideration of complex systems. Few applications in the field of the instrumentation and control (l&C) systems, safety integrated systems (SIS) emphasize the benefits of SPN for dependability assessment.

The purpose of the study was to demonstrate that creative artwork by K-12 students can be empirically assessed using quantitative measures that are consistent with the philosophical assumptions of authentic learning and with the means and ends of art, and that these measures can reliably assess student art growth. A further goal was to provide a rationale for the assessment of student art as an essential part of the K-12 instructional program and to encourage art teachers to take responsibility for and assume a leadership role in the assessment of art learning in the school and the school district. Assessing Expressive Learning: *reports on current assessment methods but also stresses a time-tested portfolio assessment process that can be used or adapted for use in any K-12 art classroom; *includes the assessment instruments used in the study and several case studies of art teachers using electronic portfolios...

Online and blended learning requires the reconstruction of instructor and learner roles, relations, and practices in many aspects. Assessment becomes an important issue in non-traditional learning environments. Assessment literacy, i.e., understanding assessment and assessment strategies, is critical for both instructors and students in creating online and blended environments that are effective for teaching and learning. Instructors need to identify and implement assessment strategies and methods appropriate to online or blended learning. This includes an understanding of the potential of a variety of technology tools for monitoring student learning and improving their teaching effectiveness. From the students’ perspective, good assessment practices can show them what is important to learn and how they should approach learning; hence, engaging them in goal-oriented and self-regulatory cognitions and behaviors.The book targets instructors, instructional designers, and educational leaders who are interested in understanding and implementing either summative or formative assessment in online and blended learning environments. This book will assist the relevant audience in the theory and practice of assessment in online and blended learning environments. Providing both a research and practice perspective, this book can help instructors make the connection between pedagogy and technology tools to maximize their teaching and student learning. Among the questions addressed in this ...

Miller, Kashani-Sabet, Sagebiel Patient-Centered Cure Assessment. A Methodology to Assess Whether Medical Interventions Succeed in Curing Individual Patients

3539 руб.
This book is the third in our series describing patient-centered methodologies (PCM). It focuses on both the curative potential and the successful curative impact of medical interventions. It introduces an assessment procedure through which the curative impact of some particular medical intervention against a progressive and potentially fatal disease such as cancer may be ascertained.The assessment procedure’s conclusions are probabilistic in nature. They are generated on an individually tailored, patient-by-patient basis. The curative efficacy of a medical intervention is calculated as a time-phased probability for each separate patient. The intervention’s overall curative efficacy is also calculated, probabilistically, for a given patient population.Suppose that a patient is diagnosed with some form of cancer. Suppose, further, that the patient undergoes a medical intervention known to possess some curative potential, but not guaranteed to cure everybody. For how long after the intervention must that patient wait with no evidence of further disease progression before concluding that the intervention was successful? How much time must elapse with no evidence of disease before concluding that the cancer has been beaten and, therefore, that the patient was cured? The assessment procedure introduced in this book attempts to answer precisely this question.Patient-centered diagnosis, prognosis, and cure assessment all rely on a methodology that generates individually tailored pro...

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Tourism, grade: 2,6, Heidelberg International Business Academy, language: English, abstract: Despite the fact that horse-based tourism is popular as a high-impact recreational activity, this research field has received little attention. Although motivation theories have been related to jobs and tourism in general, little is known about the target groups of equestrian tourists. The purpose of this study is to investigate, how the Landsmót affect the motivation of the German Icelandic Horse community regarding their decision to travel to Iceland. Special focus was put on their individual motivation to visit the Landsmót and the resulting impact on their final travel decision.To identify correlations between tourist motivation and destination choice, the study is based on a cross-sectional explanatory research purpose, using a mixed-model research method which consists of a survey and an archival research.Responses from 222 German Icelandic Horse community members were used in order to answer the research questions. The results illustrate, regardless of gender, that equestrian tourists of the German Icelandic Horse community were mostly motivated by entertainment and aesthetic needs, rather than escape or self-esteem. However, comparisons based on the colonial cup race study by Daniels and Norman (2005) show significant differences in the motivation need of group affiliation. No direct correlation exists between the travel motiva...

As demands for accountability escalate, assessment continues to evolve as a central aspect of student affairs administration. Experience clearly indicates that without a robust portfolio of assessment activities, the services, programs, and activities of a student affairs division are at risk of being reassigned to other organizational units on campus—or, in a tight budgetary environment, being eliminated. This sourcebook reminds student affairs educators of the importance of developing an assessment program and explores topics that will add depth and richness to such a program. From specific metrics to broad strategies for developing collaborative activities involving academic and student affairs, it shows how to integrate valuable resources into the assessment process and how to use that process to enhance the student experience. The authors also take the largest view, offering advice on developing an institutional culture of assessment and planning future actions that will best serve students during their collegiate years. This is the 142nd volume of this Jossey-Bass higher education quarterly series. An indispensable resource for vice presidents of student affairs, deans of students, student counselors, and other student services professionals, New Directions for Student Services offers guidelines and programs for aiding students in their total development: emotional, social, physical, and intellectual.

There are two Olmetas in Corsica, both in the north, both on the west coast, both perched high like an eagle's nest, both looking down upon those lashed waters of the Mediterranean, which are not the waters that poets sing of, for they are as often white as they are blue; they are seldom glassy except in the height of summer and sailors tell that they are as treacherous as any waters of the earth. Neither aneroid nor weather-wisdom may, as a matter of fact, tell when a mistral will arise, how it will blow, how veer, how drop and rise, and drop again. For it will blow one day beneath a cloudless sky, lashing the whole sea white like milk, and blow harder tomorrow under racing clouds.

Offers solutions and best practices to respond to recurrent problems and contemporary challenges in the field Since the publication of the first edition of Environmental Impact Assessment in 2003, both the practice and theory of impact assessment have changed substantially. Not only has the field been subject to a great deal of new regulations and guidelines, it has also evolved tremendously, with a greater emphasis on strategic environmental, sustainability, and human health impact assessments. Moreover, there is a greater call for impact assessments from a global perspective. This Second Edition, now titled Impact Assessment to reflect its broader scope and the breadth of these many changes, offers students and practitioners a current guide to today's impact assessment practice. Impact Assessment begins with an introduction and then a chapter reviewing conventional approaches to the field. Next, the book is organized around recurrent problems and contemporary challenges in impact assessment process design and management, enabling readers to quickly find the material they need to solve tough problems, including: How to make impact assessments more influential, rigorous, rational, substantive, practical, democratic, collaborative, ethical, and adaptive How each problem and challenge-reducing process would operate at the regulatory and applied levels How each problem can be approached for different impact assessment types—sustainability assessment, strategic environmental assessment, project-level EIA, social impact assessment, ecological impact assessment, and health impact assessment How to link and combine impact assessment processes to operate in situations with multiple overlapping problems, challenges, and impact assessment types How to connect and combine impact assessment processes Each chapter first addresses the topic with current theory and then demonstrates how that theory is applied, presenting requirements, guidelines, and best practices. Summaries at the end of each chapter provide a handy tool for structuring the design and evaluation of impact assessment processes and documents. Readers will find analyses and new case studies that address such issues as multi-jurisdictional impact assessment, climate change, cumulative effects assessment, follow-up, capacity building, interpreting significance, and the siting of major industrial and waste facilities. Reflecting current theory and standards of practice, Impact Assessment is appropriate for both students and practitioners in the field, enabling them to confidently respond to a myriad of new challenges in the field.
