This excellently illustrated book adopts an evidence-based approach to evaluate the efficacy of different techniques for the imaging and treatment of patellofemoral pain, instability, and arthritis. The aim is to equip practitioners with an informative guide that will help them to manage disorders of the patellofemoral joint by casting light on the many issues on which a consensus has been lacking. The opening chapters supply essential background information and explain the role of various imaging modalities, including radiography, CT, MRI, and bone scan. The various conservative and surgical treatment approaches for each of the three presentations - pain, instability, and arthritis - are then described and assessed in depth, with precise guidance on indications and technique. Postoperative management and options in the event of failed surgery are also evaluated. Throughout, careful attention is paid to the literature in an attempt to establish the level of evidence for each imaging and treatment method. The new edition has been thoroughly updated, with inclusion of additional chapters, in order to present the latest knowledge on biomechanics, diagnosis, surgical techniques, and rehabilitation.

Backcover Being a certified bibliophile and a professional geek, I have more shelf space devoted to books on software methods than any reasonable human should possess. Balancing Agility and Discipline has a prominent place in that section of my library, because it has helped me sort through the noise and smoke of the current method wars.--From the Foreword by Grady BoochThis is an outstanding book on an emotionally complicated topic. I applaud the authors for the care with which they have handled the subject.--From the Foreword by Alistair CockburnThe authors have done a commendable job of identifying five critical factors--personnel, criticality, size, culture, and dynamism--for creating the right balance of flexibility and structure. Their thoughtful analysis will help developers who must sort through the agile-disciplined debate, giving them guidance to create the right mix for their projects.--From the Foreword by Arthur Pyster Agility and discipline: These apparently opposite attributes are, in fact, complementary values in software development. Plan-driven developers must also be agile; nimble developers must also be disciplined. The key to success is finding the right balance between the two, which will vary from project to project according to the circumstances and risks involved. Developers, pulled toward opposite ends by impassioned arguments, ultimately must learn how to give each value its due in their particular situations. Balancing Agility and Discipline sweeps aside the rhetoric, drills down to the operational core concepts, and presents a constructive approach to defining a balanced software development strategy. The authors expose the bureaucracy and stagnation that mark discipline without agility, and liken agility without discipline to unbridled and fruitless enthusiasm. Using a day in the life of two development teams and ground-breaking case studies, they illustrate the differences and similarities between agile and plan-driven methods, and show that the best development strategies have ways to combine both attributes. Their analysis is both objective and grounded, leading finally to clear and practical guidance for all software professionals--showing how to locate the sweet spot on the agility-discipline continuum for any given project. 0321186125B10212003 Foreword by Grady Booch.

A Concise Introduction to Project Management , ...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

A concise introductory guide to project management. This guide provides a simple method for managing small to medium-sized projects. Let's first define what a project is. We start with a formal definition. “A project is a unique event, with a defined start and end. It is a temporary structure, created to achieve some change - a new or changed product, a specific value, a different way of doing something or an objective”. Even if you've done something very similar before, something about each project will be unique - the location, the resources used, the time, the cost - something will make the event unique. A project is work that is planned to bring about change in a structured and effective way: Projects have different sizes, resource needs, budgets, and risks. They go from planning a holiday, constructing a garden shed, moving staff from one office to another, teaching people how to use a new piece of equipment or software, or building a ship, to rolling out a new procedure for form-filling. All of these need the same basic structure, tailored to the size of the project.  PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio. 1.

Maize is the third most important crop in the world agricultural economy after wheat and rice with an area of 168.26 million hectares with a production of 854.59 million tonnes with average productivity of 5120 kg / ha. Weed management in maize is carried out by manual, mechanical and chemical methods, among which chemical method is the most economical and effective tool to suppress weeds in order to get healthy crop stand and good yield. Advancement in biotechnological research enables genetic engineering to enhance production and minimize crop yield losses through development of crops that are tolerant to insects and herbicides. Genetically modified crops are the most rapidly adopted technology in agricultural history due to the social and economic benefits. Major yield reducing factors for maize cultivation are weeds and insects. Transgenic corn hybrids with stacked event (TC1507 X NK603) were developed for preventing yield losses of corn and improve the productivity. The stacked product having both insect protection and herbicide tolerant traits will provide protection to the crop against target pests and also provide effective weed management system to farmers.

Indicators of Community Resilience

Disasters are defined as a crisis event in which the demands being placed on a human system, by the event, exceed the systems capacity to respond .The disaster literature has generally focused at the individual level and fails to take into account the context in which individuals live and where the disaster occurred.Few studies utilize residents within a disaster community to define the factors that are relevant to their disaster experience especially in Australian settings. This book aims to understand disaster communities and what factors indicate a communities resilience. Results indicate the relative importance of self-efficacy to the experience of stress and growth in disasters and that different styles of coping are inextricably linked to each other.Contributions of this study indicate that for emergency management organizations there is no universal method of practice.Local communities need to be understood in terms of their contexts to effectively develop and implement prevention programs and aid resilience. This book will be useful for those in the emergency management field, social scientests and methodologists.

Recent research in video surveillance has shown an increasing focus in creating reliable systems for observing humans' appearance, movements and activities, thus providing analytical information for advanced human behavior analysis. In order for the system to function, it requires robust method for detecting and tracking human from a given input of video streams. In this book, a human detection technique suitable for video surveillance is presented. The techniques proposed include adaptive frame differencing for background subtraction, contrast adjustment for shadow removal, and shape based approach for human detection. The tracking technique on the other hand uses correspondence approach. Event Based Video Retrieval (EBVR) system is proposed for efficient surveillance data management and automated human recognition. Proposed human detection and tracking are integrated with EBVR into a complete automated surveillance system which produces good result and real-time performance especially in non-crowded scene and handles automated human recognition with unique ID assignment accurately. This book could serve as an introduction for new researchers in this field.

Hybrid Management in a Hierarchy Organization
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In this book, the problem of management in an organization with a hierarchical structure is modeled as a hybrid multi-layer switching control problem. A novel approach is proposed to transfer a management problem to a control system problem. The supervisory control of a Discrete-Event System (DES) is used for decision making in the organization. This method takes advantage of the hierarchical structure of an organization to find the optimal solution in terms of achieving the desired scopes of the project while minimizing the resources (time and cost). Although the problem formulation is explained for a hierarchical organization, the method is general enough to be applied to any team collaboration problem including the flat structure organizations. In fact, this methodology improves the monitoring and controlling phase of the project management.
