5. Key Glossary Terms

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>In this section, I've defined a few terms that you'll encounter over and over in this book. Read the list below to become familiar with any new terms and refresh your memory on the rest. I've presented the concepts in the order you need to understand them, building one on top of the other.</p><p><strong>Wi-Fi</strong>: <em>Wi-Fi</em> refers to the set of wireless networking standards that encompasses all of Apple's AirPort products, and thousands of wireless networking products made by other firms. Wi-Fi provides a test-based way of ensuring that devices work in a consistent way using four IEEE 802.11 Working Group standards: 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11a, and 802.11n (B, G, A, and N, respectively)</p><p><strong>802.11n and Draft N</strong>: The most recent Wi-Fi addition is <em>802.11n</em>, which is currently in the final stages of development at the IEEE group. <em>Draft N</em> is the name used by the Wi-Fi testing group to indicate that a device conforms to the latest interoperable set of guidelines for 802.11n. Almost everyone now simply calls this standard 802.11n, even though the final steps for approval haven't been voted on. There's no chance of any change.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362090-take-control-of-your-802-11n-airport-network">See more</a>

Architecture: Cave-Temples and Temples

Source: Art of India
Slice PDF June 06, 2014
<p>The Medieval Period in the North of India</p><p>Architecture: Cave-Temples and Temples</p><p>While the most characteristic and distinctive sculptures of Gupta age occur in Northern India, the rock-cut shrines and monasteries of the Deccan are adorned with numerous sculptures more or less closely related to those of the north. These as a whole are later and must be considered as intermediate between the Gupta work and the later medieval. At Ajanta, interest having been concentrated chiefly on the paintings, the accounts of the sculptures are meagre and detailed photographs are scarce.</p><p>The numerous sculptures in Cave XXVI include a gigantic recumbent Dying Buddha, seven metres in length, bearing a general resemblance to the fifth-century image at Kasia in the</p><p>Gorakhpur District, U.P. The most notable sculpture on the walls is the large and crowded composition representing the Temptation of Buddha, which Dr. Burgess describes as ‘beautiful’, adding that</p><p>‘several of the faces are beautifully cut’. The subject is also treated at Ajanta in fresco and at Borobudur, Java, in sculpture. The fantastically dressed hair, characteristic of the period, worn by several of the figures in the Ajanta sculpture should be noted. The elephants are well drawn, as usual.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/615977-art-of-india">See more</a>

CHAPTER ELEVEN: Bridging the gap: experiences at the interface of primary care and a psychotherapy institution

Slice ePub May 26, 2014
<p> <i>Sue Blake</i> </p><p>The problem with belonging to two institutions is that neither side fully understands the perspective of the other; working across boundaries is difficult and can be dispiriting at times, but there are great rewards when human connections are achieved.</p><p>In the summer of 2001 I was appointed to work as a senior lecturer in primary care in the Adult Department of the Tavistock Clinic. This is a challenging position, at the interface of two important and well-established specialities within the health service— mental health and primary care—made all the more demanding by the recent changes in organization and a requirement on both sides to coordinate services. I am based in the Clinic for half of the week; for the rest of my time I am a partner in a large, busy inner-city practice in north Islington, where I have worked for over twelve years. Before working as a GP, I was a psychiatrist for many years, and during that time I also trained as a psychoanalytical psychotherapist. So I have a foot in several camps, which could be experienced as having split loyalties and creating confusion in my professional identity. To work effectively across the boundary, it has been important to me personally—having combined poten-160</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/247019-reflecting-on-reality-psychotherapists-at-work-in-primary-care">See more</a>

46. The Future of Videoconferencing

Slice ePub May 15, 2014
<p> 131 </p><p><br> Unquestionably, we live in a world in which video has come to play a major role. Most people are comfortable with videos that monitor behavior for security purposes. Video cameras record all types of crimes: convenience store robberies, police abuse of citizens, accidents, bribes, plane hijackings, and even abuse of a child by a babysitter. The public looks forward to broadcasts of “accidental” videotape that shows an event captured live that the participants thought was private.</p><p>Now video has moved into the business world as a communication device. Future VC applications will be far-reaching and can only be imagined today. One day in the future it will be commonplace for us to eat a meal with a group of friends at one hotel dining room while another group of friends thousands of miles away dines at a second hotel—and it will appear as if we were all seated at one long table. (A group of California entrepreneurs is currently seeking venture capital for this application.)</p><p>Wireless technology will introduce even greater possibilities for videoconferencing. Think of all the wireless applications being used today; then imagine a future that includes video images. For example, videoconferencing on a PDA will happen. It is just a matter of time.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/246599-smart-videoconferencing-new-habits-for-virtual-meetings">See more</a>

25. Clarissa: "No Matter What"

Slice ePub May 24, 2014
<p>Clarissa D. was born prematurely to a thirty-one-year-old mother who had had several miscarriages. She had her cervix sutured in order to carry this baby. When she went into labor at twenty-seven weeks, the sutures were removed and the two-pound baby was delivered. The infant survived despite many complications. She was in severe distress with Apgar scores of 5 at one minute, 7 at five minutes, requiring oxygen for resuscitation. Respiratory distress ensued and, for seven weeks, Clarissa was given constant artificial respiratory support with a tube in her throat and numerous medications. Jaundice appeared and, on the second day, an exchange transfusion was necessary. She received phototherapy for five more days. She required pulmonary surgery and developed an infection and pneumonia, for which she received antibiotics for fourteen days. Despite all of these complications, Clarissa survived and was placed in room air at the age of thirty-five weeks, eight weeks after her birth. At this time, we were able to start following her with our assessment techniques. She still had respiratory problems and evidence of cerebral hemorrhage, which we suspected might have left her with mild neurological damage.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/310429-the-earliest-relationship-parents-infants-and-the-drama-of-early-attachment">See more</a>
