Circadian rhythms are biological processes or clocks that exist in each one of our cells. Programmed to turn genes on or off at different times of the day or night, they influence every aspect of our health from weight and energy levels through to resistance to disease and infection, and how well we sleep.Now, in The Circadian Code, this new science is revealed, showing that the timings of our day (when we eat, sleep, exercise, work) are more crucial than we ever thought before. And that, most importantly, if your daily schedule is out of sync with your circadian rhythms, you can fix it!Whether you are a shift worker, a frustrated dieter, someone suffering from sleep problems or chronic illness, whatever your health concern, The Circadian Code is the key to unlocking your health.

Excerpt from Physiological Archives, Vol. 2: Hull Physiological LaboratoryLiving matter 15 a collective term for the quality common to all living organisms. Comparative physiology alone enables us to dis criminate between the general properties of living matter and the func tions of specific organs, such as the blood, the nerves, the sense organs, chlorophyll, etc. Nothmg has retarded the progress of physiology and pathology more than the neglect of comparative physiology. Com parative physmlogy shows that secretion is a general function of all living orgamsms and occurs even where there is no circulation. Hence it was a przori false and a waste of time to attempt to explain secretion from the expenments on blood pressure. Oxidations occur regardless of circulation and it was apriori a waste of time to consider the blood as the seat of oxidation. Comparative physiology has shown that the reactions of animals to light are identical with the heliotropic phenomena in plants. Hence it is a mistake to ascribe such reactions asthe flying of the moth into the flame to specific functions of the brain and the eyes. Sleep is a phenomenon which occurs in insects and plants, and it would be a waste of time to attempt an explanation of sleep on the basis of phenomena of circulation. The best interests of physiology and pathology demand that the systematic development of Comparative physiology be one of the physiological problems of today.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundred...

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: In this thesis it was shown that it is possible to set-up a very fast and flexible realtime controller using only off-the-shelf components on a PC platform. To best fit the requirements, the used hardware and software has been chosen carefully and compared with other market products. After evaluating the timing and handling structure, the real-time controller and the system drivers were implemented using the 'C' program language. To ensure flexibility, this program has been tested on two different hardware configurations. Timing analyses and measurements are compare for the two configurations. All code is written to be easy to understand and quickly learned by students. To prove the system capabilities, a PI control algorithm has been implemented to control the torque of a DC machine. The system ran on a 333 MHz PII with algorithm times of about 600ns and an overall sampling rate of 20kHz. This very flexible system, together with the real time operating system of RTLinux and Linux, makes it possible to build a control platform for power electronics which can be easily adapted to fit almost every requirement in a very short time. The superior computation power of standard PCs (and the possibility to upgrade the CPU) is a decisive advantage to common DSP solutions - especially when system cost is an important factor. The use of open source operating systems enables full control and survey of the whole system. Software and utilities for almost all...

There comes a point in our lives where we need to sit back and take time to reflect on all the things that led us to where we are standing in this exact moment. Most commonly, we will not take that moment to reflect until we are knee deep in the quicksand of our hardest times. When we are at this point, we tend to feel as if there is no way out of the current situation. To us, it is as if the lights at the end of the tunnel were only a myth used to convince us to continue further into the darkness until we become forever lost. For those of us that never give up, we have experienced the proof that every rocky road eventually smooths out and no storm lasts forever. For those of us that are currently standing in the quicksand, the poetry within the pages of this book will provide a brief synopsis of hard times, good times, difficult realizations, the enjoyment, and indulgence of natureÕs incredible beauty, and a coming to faith that there is something greater, not only than us, but also within us.

The jackknife is a resampling method that uses subsets of the original database by leaving out one observation at a time from the sample. The paper develops fast algorithms for jackknifing inequality indices with only a few passes through the data. The number of passes is independent of the number of observations. Hence, the method provides an efficient way to obtain standard errors of the estimators even if sample size is large. We apply our method using micro data on individual incomes for Germany and the US.

Most can remember a time when you knew that things were Out of yOur Hands. I can recount several times in my life when I did not know what to do; when I felt overwhelmed by grief or pain haunted my heart. At times, I wanted to give up. In my desperation, I would cry out to God, “Help me, please...”. Each time, although I may not have realized His presence at the time, God touched my life with His loving hand and helped me get through when I could not see any way out. Out of yOur Hands shares two of my experiences as well as those of others, who like you and I, have realized that some things this side of Heaven are out of our hands. The stories that others share in this book offer hope and encouragement to look to and trust God; to remember that His loving hands not only control the universe—they reach out in love to help us. Although not everyone who shares their story in this book professes the same religion and/or believes the same as me, the God of Abraham created each of us. He loves us and tells us that we are to love one another. Because I am a Christian, however, I cannot compromise my belief that God sent His Only Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for our sins; that He lives today; that He is: “The way, the truth, and the life”—the only way to God. As others like me read the stories in Out of yOur Hands, I pray each one senses the presence of God’s hand not only in this work birthed by love—but in their hearts.

As legislations have become stricter and the competition on markets is getting stronger, companies facing return flows strive for the implementation of efficient and cost-effective reverse logistic procedures. At the same time, when managing reverse logistics, they are not only confronted with a high degree of uncertainties concerning the quality, quantity and timing or the product returns, but also with a dynamically changing environment. Various aspects, such the increasing amount of return flows, shorter repair and lead times as well as increasing disposal costs, affect the reverse logistic system and need to be managed proficiently. Additionally, handling product returns requires supportive computer aided modelling tools that are capable of handling the dynamic and complex characteristics of the reverse logistic system and allow an improved estimation of the impact of a changing environment and management decisions. For the purpose of this study, the system dynamics modelling approach has been identified as particularly suitable for illustrating the system in question with a special focus on understanding the dynamic behaviour over time. A generic system dynamics model has been exemplarily created and simulated using the program iThink. The model comprises end-to-end processes of the main reverse logistic activities related to customer returns and has been used for studying the strategic design and optimization of the reverse logistic system. In order to consider relevant...

The Only Freedom reveals the possibility of attaining a state of permanent freedom. It is not the freedom we experience when we recover from some disease, for in that state we always know or expect that some other ailment can afflict us. It is not the freedom from lack that a wonderful new job or large inheritance may bring, for these also can fail us. The freedom described in The Only Freedom is a freedom already within us, but which can be reached only through the discipline of knowing the truth – the truth about God, man, and the nature of error – and standing firmly in the principles behind these truths. As Goldsmith says, “If we are not abiding in the Word and letting the Word abide in us, all the evils of this world can come near our dwelling place.”Throughout this book Goldsmith shows us how to find “the liberty of the sons of God” within ourselves. He says that it may not be easy, but that freedom and fulfillment will be the end result: “Wherever there is a realization of God, man is given his freedom, not only spiritual freedom, but a spiritual freedom which becomes evident as physical, mental, moral and financial freedom.”[Note: The Only Freedom is the collection of the 1981 Infinite Way Letters.]

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject Politics - Political Theory and the History of Ideas Journal, grade: A, Stellenbosch Universitiy, course: Comparative Political Economy, 20 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The primary aim of this paper is to provide a detailed analysis of the manner in which important current trends will shape the future of the division of labour and the world system as a whole. The implications of the major political (loss of sovereignty), technological, cultural (globalisation vs. identity), environmental (population growth) and economic trends that the current generation faces will be considered; thereafter looking at its impact on the global division of labour. This will be followed by a thorough analysis of what the nature and structure of the world system will look like in 2025. The paper will end off with a prediction of what the balance of power in the system will be around this time, looking at several candidates for possible hegemony. The argument posed in this essay is that the world system is undergoing a transitional phase, whereby the system could potentially collapse and be replaced by another one, although this is not likely to occur as early as 2025. The other argument is that the ushering in of a new hegemon is a lengthy process, one that will probably not have taken root by this time; thus 2025 will almost certainly be characterized by a multipolar system.[...]

H. P. Lovecraft Letters to C. L. Moore and Others

2352 руб.
This latest volume of H. P. Lovecraft’s complete unabridged correspondence is unique in that it contains a substantial amount of letters by one of his most distinctive later colleagues—the weird writer C. L. Moore, whose stories mingling fantasy and sexuality were among the most striking contributions to Weird Tales in the 1930s. Lovecraft’s letters to Moore survive only fragmentarily, but Moore wrote more than 60,000 words of letters to Lovecraft, and these are now published for the first time, revealing a vivid imagination and keen analytical mind who held her own in debates with her older colleague. Lovecraft introduced Moore to her future husband and writing partner, Henry Kuttner, whose own brief correspondence is included here. Fritz and Jonquil Leiber were already married when Jonquil wrote to Lovecraft, as Fritz was too shy to approach him. There ensued a lively correspondence with both individuals that lasted less than a year, but was filled with profound discussions of the nature of weird fiction. Lovecraft wrote a long, detailed letter analyzing Leiber’s early novella “Adept’s Gambit,” and Leiber revised the story accordingly. Lovecraft also engaged in a short correspondence with Harry O. Fischer, who initially collaborated with Leiber in conceiving the Fafhrd and Gray Mouser series of fantasy tales. This volume also prints the complete letters to a little-known correspondent, Frederic Jay Pabody. These letters have surfaced only recently, and they show Lovecraft a...

Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Computer Science - Internet, New Technologies, grade: Merit , Middlesex University in London, course: MSc in Telecommunication Engineering , language: English, abstract: GSM is one of the greatest wireless technologies in the world because of the benefits it provides to its users in saving time and its ability in speeding signals. Unfortunately, under the GSM system, the signal interference which users might experience when moving from one coverage area to another presents a real problem. The main objective of this project was to investigate and simultaneously resolve the problem of the GSM handover system. This project is explaining the mechanism of the signal transmits and handover from one antenna to another taken into consideration that transmission may vary according to the type of the handover. The project attempted then to introduce and compare between all these different types of handover, and decide the ideal type for reserving the signal from any cut or interference. The location of the MS is really the core in tackling the signal interference problem under the system. Therefore, the optimal timing and distance between handover facilities was calculated to solve the problem. The focus of this project is on vertical handover and specially the time before vertical handover. Later on, the project also showed the calculations concerning timing and distance between antennas (or coverage areas) by taking into account t...

Explore the inevitable collapse of the fiat monetary system Paper Money Collapse: The Folly of Elastic Money, Second Edition challenges the mainstream consensus on money and monetary policy. While it is today generally believed that the transition from 'hard' and inflexible commodity money (such as a gold standard) to entirely flexible and potentially unlimited fiat money under national central banks allows for superior economic stability, Paper Money Collapse shows that the opposite is true. Systems of highly elastic and constantly expanding money are not only unnecessary, even for growing economies, they are always extremely destabilizing. Over time, they must lead to substantial imbalances, including excessive levels of debt and distorted asset prices, that will require ever faster money production to sustain. Ultimately, however, there is no alternative to a complete liquidation of these distortions. Based on insights of many renowned economists and in particular of the Austrian School of Economics, the book explains through rigorous logic and in precise language why our system of flexible fiat money is incompatible with a market economy and therefore unsustainable. Paper money systems have always led to economic disintegration—without exception—throughout history. It will not be different for our system and we may be closer to the endgame than many think. The updated second edition incorporates: A new introduction and an extended outlook section that discusses various «endgames» Responses to criticisms, alternative views, and a critical assessment of 'solutions' Comments on recent policy trends, including attempts to exit the 'easy money' policy mode An evaluation of new crypto-currency Bitcoin Paper Money Collapse: The Folly of Elastic Money, Second Edition clarifies the problem of paper money clearly and eloquently, and proposes multiple routes to a solution.

It is a particular story, wedded to its time and place, and at the same time contains universal truths, a testament to the human spirit and the gifts of the author."—Ray Mouton, attorney, author of In God's House.“The title hints of poetry, perhaps mystery.

This book is also being dedicated to those who search for the truth about our relationships as human beings, and to those who are willing to join the fight against all who inspire the negative voices that divide us. Have we learned anything from the past or present that will able us to move forward in a way that all mankind can finally join together in the true meaning of the word brotherhood? Or will it lead to our demise because of those who turn a deaf ear to the one who speaks the truth? Remember, the decisions we make will affect all who come after us. Or do we really care about the things we say or do that will stagnate the positive mental growth of future generations? Only time will tell!

Pure Moments is a book of just that. Moments in life that I don’t want to forget or experiences that God spoke to me through over the years. Sometimes, I would sense the Holy Spirit telling me to write in the middle of the night. The words would come and I knew it wasn’t me. However, it usually had to do with something I was going through at the time; things like motherhood, parenting, grieving, and marriage. These words would just flow onto the paper. I pray these poems remind us of how special moments can be. Whether it is in good times or bad, God will always be there for us. They may be words you want to pass on or express; however, didn’t know how. Words that will encourage you in your journey.It’s those moments in life that are precious. We just need to take the time to notice and capture them. God will bring us through, bless us with beauty, give us wisdom, or comfort us when we need it.For the joyful moments that come that we want to remember or the times when you need to know someone else felt that way too. May these poems bless you and speak to your heart as they did mine.God bless you.

Islamic asset management system has been implemented over the past few years, but there is no system that combines all types of Islamic assets in one single system. The existing system only focused on the management of the specific asset. In our country, there is only one web-based system for zakat management, whereas the other asset management like fidiah, waqaf and heritage only as a stand-alone system. This will lead to waste of time and effort for users where they have to go to various places to manage their assets. Personal Islamic Asset Management System using Object-oriented approach is a portal that integrates the personal management of Islamic assets which intend to solve all of aforementioned problems. It has detailed information about Islamic asset management including various functions for zakat, heritage, fidiah and kifayah. The Personal Islamic Asset Management System using object-oriented approach also provides the counter information and archived engine to search for related documents. This thesis contributes to the management of personal Islamic assets as well as using object-oriented software engineering.

Myths are our collective dreams, our inspiration and our aspiration; they are the sacred stories that guide us in living a conscious life. One of the most beloved myths of the West is that of King Arthur and his Companions of the Round Table, and we find in this work that the spiritual teachings embodied in this myth are the same as those of the chakra system of the East. Both map the development of human consciousness from conception to self-realization. Arthur of Britain transports us to the landscape and the time of King Arthur while opening our hearts to the power of myth to transcend time and space. A retelling of some of the legends correlates the events of Arthur's life with the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual challenges that he, and we, encounter at each chakra. Guided meditations use the archetypal symbols in the myth to help us negotiate those challenges, and bring into consciousness the wisdom and self-healing power that we all carry within. This work is a valuable contribution to both the spiritual and mythological literature as it provides a bridge between the two and highlights the similarities, rather than the differences, of diverse traditions.Also, this book is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

The continuous observation of the load currents in three different phases of distribution transformers, fixation of its average values on real time basis, mathematical model development with the above average value as base factor are the basic steps of this method, which subsequently leads to a time based dynamics. The validation of the so developed model is done by experimenting in a working system.

‘O brave new world, That has such people in’t!’ Shakespeare, The Tempest New scientific developments are changing the world, but whether the world of our children and grandchildren will be the hell of Huxley’s Brave New World or the sheltered paradise described by Shakespeare depends on how we choose to use these developments. That choice will frequently be driven by our appreciation of what human beings really are. In this thought-provoking book Pete Moore presents an antidote to the scientific reductionism that so frequently seeks to narrow any definition of our species by single features, such as our genes or the ability of our brains. This exploration of the nature of humanity reveals the rainbow spectrum that makes us who we are. Through discussions with individuals whose lives help us to focus on individual aspects of our make up, Moore explores the difficult issues that are facing us. This book provides a timely reminder that technology cannot be separated from its impact on real people and how their lives are changed for the better or worse. Medical developments offer tremendous opportunities for good, but if we lose sight of what it is to be human they also have the ability to be used for very dangerous, even evil purposes. We have a chance to influence this future. We should not ignore the challenge. DR PETE MOORE is a medical journalist and an official rapporteur at Windsor Castle and the House of Lords. He is the author of Blood and Justice (0470 848421, Hbk / 0470 84844 8 Pbk).

This is also dedicated to all our fellow C-130 aircrews of past, present, and future and to the instructors who taught us how to handle critical situations in and out of combat well. Without your skills and knowledge, we as crew members would not be able to accomplish the delicate and dangerous missions put on us. Your leadership, personalities, and instruction will always be remembered. Know that we understand your direction and teaching of each phase of instruction you put us through. This is dedicated to Lockheed Martin for creating such a magnificent airplane. Your knowledge, experience and passion to not only help, but want to build an unbelievable airplane is great.

When we try to comprehend the measured concept of time, we are confronted by its vastness. To compare a 4 billion year old rock in your hand to the 20 million year old stones that lie scattered around the Earth is unbearably abstract to relate to. The same goes for when we try to relate to space, and the changes all known forms undergo: A body aging, buildings deteriorating, or the radical tectonic transformations of our planet as exemplified by marine fossils discovered at the top of Mount Everest, which bear witness to the fact that the highest peak of the Earth today, was once the deepest depth of the ocean. Time and space are the coordinates that together create a body of life in any given form. Anything that has a form is subject to change in one way or the other – just with different life spans in time and space. The Beige Book - On Time and Space is devoted to holding this abstract vastness, not as numbers or any measurable form, but as a feeling. Beige is the colour of the remains of something, when all other colours are gone. It is the colour of our bones, ruins, and deserts of sand. This book wishes to provide us with a space to understand through feeling that there were lives before us, civilisations before us, and that one day we will literally become beige as well. This space holds the humility of life by placing it into perspective to remind us that while we may lose ourselves in our present time and space, this is just one moment in a much greater span of exist...

Today English is a language that is almost uninflected, but this has not always been the case. The Old English language had many inflectional distinctions, which got almost totally lost throughout time. In this research paper I will show the different states of the inflectional system in the Old, Middle, Early Modern and Modern English. Furthermore, there will be shown and clarified the dramatic loss of inflectional distinctions in the English language. The tables in this research paper are partly adapted from books, partly slightly modified and partly created on my own by summarizing information of texts or results of this research paper in a table.

Steve Chandler, bestselling author of 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself, has created this newest title for the many of us who are time challenged throughout the day. Chandler's Time Warrior gives us a revolutionary, non-linear approach for dealing with time, as bold as it is fresh and new. Forget whatever "guidebooks" you may have read on time management or personal productivity. Time Warrior is much more than tips and tricks. Steve Chandler has given us an invitation - as well as a challenge - to become something far greater than we are now. To become, in essence, a "style tracker" rather than a "time tracker." Tracking your cognitive style is what makes you a Time Warrior, for only your unique cognitive style can liberate you from the treadmill of linear, limited time. This book takes you on a 101-chapter journey intended to transmute the base metals of ordinary linear time-consciousness into the gold of the Time Warrior's non-linear vision. You will learn to create for yourself a newfound and more powerful cognitive style that will make time tracking, multi-tasking and other clock-subservient behaviors an unsavory and distant memory.

Project Report from the year 2012 in the subject Library Science, Information- / Documentation Science, Kampala International University (computer studdies), course: none, language: English, abstract: For many years, universities & colleges have used file based / manual system to manage library use. Whereas this was quite efficient for some time, due to the expansion of the library and increase in the number of students, the system wastes a lot of time especially when searching for a particular book or resource. In response to this problem, more librarians have been added (employed), and this has escalated the cost of managing the library. This inefficiency, led to the study that was aimed at automating the book keeping function of the library.A study was carried out at Kampala International University Dar salaam Campus and it was discovered that the manual system had inefficiencies ranging from time wastage, high cost of operation in terms of human resources, long search time, data redundancy among others. A computer based library management system was developed using visual studio. The new system allows the user to add books into the system, search for books from the system database, track member information, manage borrowing among others.By automating library operations, the university will enjoy the advantages of using databases and transaction processing systems.

These are wise poems that penetrate the mind with their brutal honesty. Again and again, we are broken and mended and again broken because ours is a world 'built on enslaved sweat,' a world where 'all the tragedies of the world are a silence.' This book is the voice of thousands who cannot tell their own stories. Kirsten is a brave poet, seeking to restore to us that world that was lost, a world she has seen not only in her dreams.

Dr. Moore's book concentrates on deliverance and healing. The process focuses on areas that are distinct from social, physical, and material. Spiritual areas encompass matters experienced in the unseen spiritual realm of the mind, emotions and will.What the secular world calls mental health is referred to as spiritual health in Christianity. It is commonly known as Christian spiritual health, or simply Christian health. Christian spiritual health encompasses mental health, emotional health, and the health of the individual's will (inner drive, passion, zeal, self-control). Dr. Moore not only explains these subjects in great detail within this book but also gets to the root causes of these issues.Dr. Moore believes our spiritual makeup is a personal treasure which deserves more attention than our physical makeup because it determines our outcomes not only in this life, but also in the life to come when Christ returns. Holy Wars: Root Causes will equip you with effective spiritual health principles.Holy Wars: Root Causes explains how we exist in three in parts - spirit, soul and body. The spirit part of us is what relates to the soul which in turn relates with the body. We are made in God's image in our spiritual makeup. Our physical bodies are only for the purpose of physical dealings on this physical earth.Dr. Thomas Moore is a Christian Psychologist and Psychotherapist. Dr. Moore is best known for his work in the world of spiritual warfare.

We may have lived knowing that the world around us operates in a way as if we observe them to be. This knowledge of how the universe operates, based primarily of our observations, has enabled us to predict actions and motions and allowed us to build machines and equipments that have made our lives easier and more enjoyable. The field that allowed us to do that is classical physics. The world, however, is advancing and our knowledge of how things are expands over time. We have discovered in the last few decades that these sets of rules that we have devised can perfectly describe the large-scale world but cannot accurately define the behaviors of particles in the microscopic world. This necessitated another field to explain the different behavior in the microscopic world: quantum physics.

The Limits of History

1500 руб.
History casts a spell on our minds more powerful than science or religion. It does t root us in the past at all, but instead flatters us with the belief in our ability to recreate the world in our image. It is a form of self-assertion that brooks opposition or dissent and shelters us from the experience of time. So argues Constantin Fasolt in The Limits of History, an ambitious and path-breaking study that conquers history's power by carrying the fight into the center of its domain. Fasolt considers the work of Hermann Conring (1606-81) and Bartolus of Sassoferrato (1313/1457), two antipodes in early modern battles over the principles of European thought and action that ended with the triumph of historical consciousness. Proceeding according to the rules of rmal historical analysis-gathering evidence, putting it in context, and analyzing its meaning - Fasolt uncovers limits that kind of history can cross. He concludes that history is a ritual designed to maintain the modern faith in the automy of states and individuals. God wants it - the old crusaders would have said. The truth, Fasolt insists, only begins where that illusion ends. With its probing look at the ideological underpinnings of historical practice, The Limits of History demonstrates that history presupposes highly political assumptions about free will, responsibility, and the relationship between the past and the present.Издательство: The University of Chicago Press

Philip Weinstein Simply Faulkner

652 руб.
Nobel Laureate and two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner William Faulkner (1897–1962) was one of America’s greatest and most celebrated writers, whose work reflects and, at the same time, questions the South's most deeply held values. His novel The Sound and the Fury is frequently cited as one of the best books of all time, and all of his works powerfully explore complex societal and family issues that continue to be relevant in our own day. Yet, because of his decidedly difficult, stream-of-consciousness style, Faulkner’s books remain sadly unknown to many readers. In Simply Faulkner, author Philip Weinstein not only helps us understand these challenging works, but also explains why Faulkner had to write them as he did, in an effort to capture the sheer abundance and unruliness of life. Further, in his exploration of the author’s own colorful life—including decades of working for a film industry he despised—Weinstein reveals a fascinating connection between Faulkner’s troubled personal biography and his groundbreaking fiction.The goal of Simply Faulkner is not to simplify the author, but, rather, to create a framework that allows us to comprehend him in his own idiosyncratic way. It strives to show us the real Faulkner—warts and complications and all—and to demonstrate why his brilliant masterpieces still speak to us in a deeply meaningful way.

Colin S. Gray, Strategic Studies Institute, U.S. Army War College Thucydides Was Right. Defining The Future Threat

1902 руб.
To define future threat is, in a sense, an impossible task, yet it is one that must be done. In this monograph, Dr. Colin S. Gray explains that the only sources of empirical evidence accessible to us are the past and the present. We cannot obtain understanding about the future from the future. Dr. Gray draws noticeably upon the understanding of strategic history obtainable from Thucydides' great History of the Peloponnesian War. The monograph advises prudence as the operating light for American definition of future threat, and the author believes that there are historical parallels between the time of Thucydides and our own that can help us avoid much peril. The future must always be unpredictable to us in any detail, but the many and potent continuities in history's great stream of time can serve to alert us to what may well happen in kind.

9627 руб.
The timing of work over the day or week is fundamental to the nature of paid work and the interaction between work and leisure. However, due to data limitations, little research has been done on the timing of work in Australia. The Australian Time Use Survey, conducted nationally by the Australian Bureau of Statistics in 1992 and 1997, provides a unique opportunity to examine actual work timing arrangements in the Australian workforce.The first half of the book examines the incidence, characteristics and growth of work at non-standard times of day during the 1990s, a period of substantial structural and institutional change in the Australian labour market. The second half investigates how dual earner couples with children coordinate their work schedules to reduce their dependence on formal child care. The findings show that the traditional gender division of household labour is evident in the work timing patterns of Australian couples, but for couples where both work full-time, this may be an inefficient response to economic incentives. The book will be of use to academics and policy makers with an interest in the Australian labour market and work and family issues.
