Data will not help you if you can’t see it where you need it. Or can’t collect it where you need it. Upon these principles, wearable technology was born. And although smart watches and fitness trackers have become almost ubiquitous, with in-body sensors on the horizon, the future applications of wearable computers hold so much more. A trusted reference for almost 15 years, Fundamentals of Wearable Computers and Augmented Reality goes beyond smart clothing to explore user interface design issues specific to wearable tech and areas in which it can be applied. Upon its initial publication, the first edition almost instantly became a trusted reference, setting the stage for the coming decade, in which the explosion in research and applications of wearable computers and augmented reality occurred. Written by expert researchers and teachers, each chapter in the second edition has been revised and updated to reflect advances in the field and provide fundamental knowledge on each topic, solidifying the book’s reputation as a valuable technical resource as well as a textbook for augmented reality and ubiquitous computing courses. New Chapters in the Second Edition Explore: Haptics Visual displays Use of augmented reality for surgery and manufacturing Technical issues of image registration and tracking Augmenting the environment with wearable audio interfaces Use of augmented reality in preserving cultural heritage Human-computer interaction and augmented reality technology Spatialized sound and augmented reality Augmented reality and robotics Computational clothing From a technology perspective, much of what is happening now with wearables and augmented reality would not have been possible even five years ago. In the fourteen years since the first edition burst on the scene, the capabilities and applications of both technologies are orders of magnitude faster, smaller, and cheaper. Yet the book’s overarching mission remains the same: to supply the fundamental information and basic knowledge about the design and use of wearable computers and augmented reality with the goal of enhancing people’s lives.

It goes beyond the daily struggles of life with a teenager, to illuminate the underlying spirit, which lies at the heart of the family. This heartfelt guide gives parents the guidance they need, to connect with their teens. Soulful parenting is not a set of techniques or rules. Techniques address the symptoms, not the root of the issue. True family growth cannot be reduced to a catchy acronym or set of exercises. Soulful Parent Soulful Teen: Moving from Control to Care goes beyond the questions of, "What do I do if . . ." to address the larger questions. How do we: Find the joy in our parenting that seems to hover tantalizingly just out of reach. Reconnect the gentle heartfelt bond we once felt with our children to our often-irascible teens? Transform our family ties that bind into wings that help them fly? Live more rewarding, more sanctified, more focused, and more peaceful lives? Millions of parents are looking for a spiritual solution to what society has deemed a secular concern. Soulful Parent Soulful Teen: Moving from Control to Care fills that need, and acts as an inspiration to all who love a teen and desire God's fullest blessings for them. Within these pages is a compass for the journey - a blueprint for what that future can look like if we allow our children to reach the depth of their calling; if we accept the magnitude of our own; if we have the soul to carry on. Soulful Parent Soulful Teen is for every parent who loves a teen, and wants to see that child reach the full potential of God's grace.

Plus de 150 oeuvres de 18 artistes venant de Malaisie, des Philippines et d'Indonésie. Ces oeuvres montrent la production la plus récente du sud-est asiatique, entre spontanéité, engagement politique et vitalité désespérée. Livre en anglais. Eighteen artists from Malaysia, the Philippines and Indonesia. More than 150 works that document the most recent artistic production of southeast Asia, amid spontaneity, political engagement and desperate vitality. The reality in which this numerous group of artists operate is efficaciously exemplified in a work by Yee I-Lann : two men with astonished expressions arrive at a coast (or are they still on the high seas ?) followed by a mythological bird, the bearer - perhaps - of good luck. Primo Marella writes in the introduction : "It seems that the destiny of South East Asia, at least as far as art is concerned, is inversely proportional to that of the international economic situation and to the consequent ability to react in the face of the difficulties it triggers in people. Some years ago, at the height of a flourishing economy that affected the whole world, Asia in particular, this territory, which includes Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines suffered one of the worst catastrophes in the history of humanity. Today an international crisis of as yet unknown proportions is affecting the whole world, overwhelming not only the banks and the most productive areas, but also the Asian art that had chiefly emerged over recent years. Now from this subcontinent a generation of artists with uncommon qualities is making its name, attracting the interest and involvement of markets, institutions and enthusiasts as never before on this territory".

The definitive biography of the world’s number-one reality star, Kim Kardashian West—the savvy entrepreneur and fashion forward woman who has defined fame for today’s generation—from the UK's leading celebrity biographer. A thoroughly modern woman, Kim Kardashian West, the daughter of headline-making lawyer Robert Kardashian, grew up like a princess in a Beverley Hills mansion. As a young girl, Kim’s ambition was to appear on The Real World, the groundbreaking hit series. But reality proved even bigger than her dreams, when just a few years later she became the star of her own smash show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. While Keeping Up with the Kardashians took us into Kim’s privileged world and made her a household name, the details of her life story—murder, elopement, domestic violence, a sex tape, a quickie divorce, religious worship, and unbelievably glamorous designer fashions—played out like an X-rated version of the 1980s soap opera Dynasty. But Kim’s story has only just begun. Married for a second time—to one of the biggest stars on the planet, Kanye West—she has begun her own dynasty with the birth of daughter, North, and another baby due in November 2015. Filled with delicious, painstakingly researched, eye-popping detail, KIM uncovers what it took for Kim to rise to the top—and how she intends to stay there. Sean Smith offers a multidimensional portrait of this remarkable woman, exploring her childhood, her family, her turbulent love life, and her glitzy multi-millionaire lifestyle. From her fabulous fashion-sense, to her world-famous physique, to her devotion to her family, including her relationship with her stepparent, Bruce Jenner and his transition to Caitlyn Jenner, this sensational, addictive biography tells the unvarnished truth about the undisputed Queen of Celebrity—the real story of Kim Kardashian.

Private Tutoring Across The Mediterranean

Private tutoring—supplementary, out-of-school instruction offered at a fee to individuals or groups—represents a substantial household expenditure, even in systems that claim to have free public education. It plays out across, alongside, and even within some school systems. Emerging as a ‘shadow education’, private tutoring now operates as a system and industry crossing national, regional, and social-class boundaries. Private tutoring is provided through different modes of delivery including the internet. Policy makers, parents, teachers, trade unions, corporations, community associations, and students are implicated in the private tutoring industry. The debates over private tutoring are therefore part of the larger struggles over the ends of education in just and equitable societies. The authors in this volume address diverse national settings of private tutoring across the Mediterranean, and examine its political, economic, social, and cultural underpinnings. They draw on a range of conceptual frameworks, and deploy a variety of research methods to problematize the multifaceted relationships between tutoring, learning, and equity. The volume captures a multiplicity of voices, and focuses on some of the central challenges facing education in pluralistic societies

However, as these essays will reveal, this socialization is not all benign. Instead, this book reveals a corporate media increasingly trapped by the demands to inform, entertain, and make a profit - often at times distorting reality by transforming criminals into heroes, assassination theories into fact, and participatory government into a spectator sport.
