Titul: Wind and solar power systems design, analysis, and operation

Autor: Mukund R. Patel     


Wind and solar energy are pollution-free sources of abundant power. Recent technological breakthroughs have made them highly competitive with conventional coal and nuclear power, and organizations in Europe, Africa, India, China, and South America are all building utility-scale wind and solar power plants. Since publication of the first edition of Wind and Solar Power Systems, this industry has continued to boom, making this update necessary. With reorganization and the inclusion of new chapters and sub-chapters that describe new technologies developed during the last five years, the second edition will continue to provide a quick update on the cutting-edge technology of renewable power systems.

Titulo: The mismeasure of man

Autor: Stephen Jay Gould


"The definitive refutation to the argument of The Bell Curve. When published in 1981, The Mismeasure of Man was immediately hailed as a masterwork, the ringing answer to those who would classify people, rank them according to their supposed genetic gifts and limits.Yet the idea of biology as destiny dies hard, as witness the attention devoted to The Bell Curve, whose arguments are here so effectively anticipated and thoroughly undermined. In this edition, Stephen Jay Gould has written a substantial new introduction telling how and why he wrote the book and tracing the subsequent history of the controversy on innateness right through The Bell Curve. Further, he has added five essays on questions of The Bell Curve in particular and on race, racism, and biological determinism in general. These additions strengthen the book's claim to be, as Leo J. Kamin of Princeton University has said, "a major contribution toward deflating pseudo-biological 'explanations' of our present social woes." (GoogleBooks)

Poor economics : a radical rethinking of the way to fight global povertyWorldCat 


Titulo: Poor economics: a radical rethinking of the way to fight global poverty

Autor: Abhijit V. Banerjee, Esther Duflo 

Palavras-chave: Ciencias sociais/Economia internacional/Assistencia economica-- Países desenvolvidos/Pobreza--Prevenção


"Billions of government dollars, and thousands of charitable organizations and NGOs, are dedicated to helping the world's poor. But much of the work they do is based on assumptions that are untested generalizations at best, flat out harmful misperceptions at worst. Banerjee and Duflo have pioneered the use of randomized control trials in development economics. Work based on these principles, supervised by the Poverty Action Lab at MIT, is being carried out in dozens of countries. Their work transforms certain presumptions: that microfinance is a cure-all, that schooling equals learning, that poverty at the level of 99 cents a day is just a more extreme version of the experience any of us have when our income falls uncomfortably low. Throughout, the authors emphasize that life for the poor is simply not like life for everyone else: it is a much more perilous adventure, denied many of the cushions and advantages that are routinely provided to the more affluent"

High levels of psychological well-being amongst employees translate into good news for the organization, including lower sickness-absence levels, attraction and retention of talented people, and more satisfied customers, clients, or service users. People with higher levels of psychological well-being work better, live longer and have happier lives. Engagement and well-being can sustain each other and lead to a healthier and more productive organization, a win-win for employees and employers. - jacket flap.
