Mallepogu Bala Sunkanna New Directions in Dalit Culture

There can be no people without a culture. Every group of people respect and feel proud of their own culture. There are strong cultural differences between any two groups in the world, that means those groups are not only distinctly different, but have come from different geographical places. Hence, they are different in racial, religious, ritualistic, social and cultural backgrounds. But, the two groups existing in the same place or adjacent areas for long times of history, and in spite of their co-existence for long time, if the two groups have distinctly different cultures, unacceptable to each-other, then there is some thing wrong. Dalits and "upper" caste Hindus in India are two such groups living in the same places all over the country for nearly three thousand years, still they are different, looking completely in different directions in many respects and cannot digest or accept the presence of each other. The book discusses the Dalits' assertion and their new cultural identity, in order to defy the hegemony of the "upper" caste Hindus. In the process the Dalits are in the middle stage between what they were in the past and what they intend to be in the near future.

Diversity is defined as those numerous elements of difference between groups of people that play significant roles in social institutions, including (but not limited to) race and ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic class, sexual orientation, and culture. Since doctoral degree recipients go on to assume roles as faculty and educators, diversity in doctoral programs is significant. By supporting graduate diversity across the academic disciplines, universities ensure that the nation’s intellectual capacities and opportunities are fully realized. The authors consider diversity broadly from multiple perspectives, from race and ethnicity to institutional type, academic discipline, and national origin. They demonstrate how diversity operates through these venues and definitions, and hope to stimulate a conversation about a key aspect of American higher education. This volume is the 163rd volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Higher Education. Addressed to presidents, vice presidents, deans, and other higher education decision makers on all kinds of campuses, New Directions for Higher Education provides timely information and authoritative advice about major issues and administrative problems confronting every institution.

Reinhold Ebertin Directions. Co-Determinants of Fate Reinhold Ebertin Directions. Co-Determinants of Fate Новинка

Reinhold Ebertin Directions. Co-Determinants of Fate

The author appropriately terms planetary directions as co-determinants of fate. Rather than view directions as simply fateful, he sees them as life companions along with the many other circumstances, conditions, and influences that shape life and human destiny.With this central philosophy in mind, the author first defines planetary directions and their significance in astrological forecasting. More than 100 examples illustrate the important planetary factors involved in both favorable and unfavorable relationships, separations, births, miscarriages, accidents and injuries, illness and surgery, and success and failure. There are also chapters devoted to directions involving Mars-Jupiter, Jupiter-Pluto, Uranus-Pluto, Mars-Neptune, and Saturn-Sun.Extensive appendices include a quick reference guide for directions involved in many specific life events.

Bauman Zygmunt Culture in a Liquid Modern World

4142.88 руб. или Купить в рассрочку!
In its original formulation, ‘culture' was intended to be an agent for change, a mission undertaken with the aim of educating ‘the people' by bringing the best of human thought and creativity to them. But in our contemporary liquid-modern world, culture has lost its missionary role and has become a means of seduction: it seeks no longer to enlighten the people but to seduce them. The function of culture today is not to satisfy existing needs but to create new ones, while simultaneously ensuring that existing needs remain permanently unfulfilled. Culture today likens itself to a giant department store where the shelves are overflowing with desirable goods that are changed on a daily basis – just long enough to stimulate desires whose gratification is perpetually postponed. In this new book, Zygmunt Bauman – one of the most brilliant and influential social thinkers of our time – retraces the peregrinations of the concept of culture and examines its fate in a world marked by the powerful new forces of globalization, migration and the intermingling of populations. He argues that Europe has a particularly important role to play in revitalizing our understanding of culture, precisely because Europe, with its great diversity of peoples, languages and histories, is the space where the Other is always one's neighbour and where each is constantly called upon to learn from everyone else.

Artur Sahakjan A Review of Recent Advancements in Deep Reinforcement Learning

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2018 in the subject Computer Science - Commercial Information Technology, grade: 1.0, University of Duisburg-Essen, language: English, abstract: Reinforcement learning is a learning problem in which an actor has to behave optimally in its environment. Deep learning methods, on the other hand, are a subclass of representation learning, which in turn focuses on extracting the necessary features for the task (e.g. classification or detection). As such, they serve as powerful function approximators. The combination of those two paradigm results in deep reinforcement learning. This thesis gives an overview of the recent advancement in the field. The results are divided into two broad research directions: value-based and policy-based approaches. This research shows several algorithms from those directions and how they perform. Finally, multiple open research questions are addressed and new research directions are proposed.

Intensive tilapia co-culture is the commercial production of various species of tilapia in conjunction with one or more other marketable species. Tilapia are attractive as a co-cultured fish because of their potential to improve water quality, especially in penaeid shrimp ponds, by consuming plankton and detritus and by altering pathogenic bacterial populations while increasing marketable production. Following introductory chapters covering ecological aspects of co-culture, tilapia feeding habits, historical use, and new models, Tilapia in Intensive Co-Culture is divided into co-culture in freshwater and marine environments. Co-culture core information is presented on Vibrio control, high-rate aquaculture processes, aquaponics, tilapia nutrient profile, and tilapia niche economics and marketing in the U.S, and with carp, catfish, freshwater and marine shrimp in the Americas, the Middle East, and Asia. Tilapia in Intensive Co-Culture is the latest book in the prestigious World Aquaculture Society (WAS) Series, published for WAS by Wiley Blackwell. It will be of great use and interest to researchers, producers, investors and policy makers considering tilapia co-culture in terms of environmental and economic sustainability.

While the term benchmarking is commonplace nowadays in institutional research and higher education, less common, is a solid understanding of what it really means and how it has been, and can be, used effectively. This volume begins by defining benchmarking as “a strategic and structured approach whereby an organization compares aspects of its processes and/or outcomes to those of another organization or set of organizations to identify opportunities for improvement.” Building on this definition, the chapters provide a brief history of the evolution and emergence of benchmarking in general and in higher education in particular. The authors apply benchmarking to: Enrollment management and student success Institutional effectiveness The potential economic impact of higher education institutions on their host communities. They look at the use of national external survey data in institutional benchmarking and selection of peer institutions, introduce multivariate statistical methodologies for guiding that selection, and consider a novel application of baseball sabermetric methods. The volume offers a solid starting point for those new to benchmarking in higher education and provides examples of current best practices and prospective new directions. This is the 156th volume of this Jossey-Bass series. Always timely and comprehensive, New Directions for Institutional Research provides planners and administrators in all types of academic institutions with guidelines in such areas as resource coordination, information analysis, program evaluation, and institutional management.

Bernard N. Fonlon Challenge of Culture in Africa. From Restoration to Integration

This book was first published as a two-part essay in 1965 and 1967 in ABBIA - Cameroon Cultural Review - under the title 'Idea of Culture'. Its main argument is that indigenous Africans cultures must be the foundation on which the modern African cultural structure should be raised; the soil into which the new seed should be sown; the stem into which the new scion should be grafted; the sap that should enliven the entire organism. This culture, the object of imperialist mockery and rejected, needs rehabilitation. However, such rehabilitation of African culture cannot be a mere archaeological enterprise. It will not answer to dig up the past and live it as it was. Not only is African culture not without its imperfections, times change and African culture must adapt itself, at every turn, to the changing times. In restoring African culture, it is imperative to steer clear of two extremes: on the one hand, the imperialist arrogance which declared everything African as only fit for the scrap-heap and the dust-bin, and, on the other hand, the overly enthusiastic and rather naive tendency to laud every aspect of African culture as if it were the quintessence of human achievement.

From Beijing's creative formalism to Shanghai's energetic glamour and Hong Kong's latest technological and cultural fusion - all of the homes in this book exemplify different facets of an emerging identity that is uniquely Chinese and yet has global appeal.

We'll to the Woods No More

A delightful period piece of Paris in the late 1880's, We'll to the Woods No More (Les lauriers sont coupes) retains its importance as the first use of the monologue interieur and the inspiration for the stream-of-conscious-ness technique perfected by James Joyce. Dujardin's charming tale, told with insight and irony, recounts what goes on in the mind of a young man-about-town in love with a Parisian actress. Mallarme described the poetry of the telling as "the instant seized by the throat." Originally published in France in 1887, the first English translation (by Joyce scholar Stuart Gilbert) was published by New Directions in 1938. In 1957 Leon Edel's perceptive historical essay reintroduced the book as "the rare and beautiful case of a minor work which launched a major movement." With this publication as a New Directions paper book, a new generation of readers can enjoy one of the milestones of modern literature.
