2 Measuring Creativity in the Classroom - Steven E. Stemler

4 Measuring the World - Daniel Kehlmann
Auteur : Daniel Kehlmann
Genre : Historical
Measuring the World marks the debut of a glorious new talent on the international scene. Young Austrian writer Daniel Kehlmann’s brilliant comic novel revolves around the meeting of two colossal geniuses of the Enlightenment.
     Late in the eighteenth century, two young Germans set out to measure the world. One of them, the aristocratic naturalist Alexander von Humboldt, negotiates jungles, voyages down the Orinoco River, tastes poisons, climbs the highest mountain known to man, counts head lice, and explores and measures every cave and hill he comes across. The other, the reclusive and barely socialized mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss, can prove that space is curved without leaving his home. Terrifyingly famous and wildly eccentric, these two polar opposites finally meet in Berlin in 1828, and are immediately embroiled in the turmoil of the post-Na

5 The Geography of Bliss - Eric Weiner
Auteur : Eric Weiner
Genre : Essays & Memoirs
Part travel memoir, part humor, and part twisted self-help guide, The Geography of Bliss takes the reader across the globe to investigate not what happiness is, but WHERE it is.

Are people in Switzerland happier because it is the most democratic country in the world? Do citizens of Qatar, awash in petrodollars, find joy in all that cash? Is the King of Bhutan a visionary for his initiative to calculate Gross National Happiness? Why is Asheville, North Carolina so damn happy?

In a unique mix of travel, psychology, science and humor, Eric Weiner answers those questions and many others, offering travelers of all moods some interesting new ideas for sunnier destinations and dispositions.

6 Let. It. Go. - Karen Ehman
Auteur : Karen Ehman
Genre : Christianity
Many women are wired to control. You’re the ones who make sure the house is clean, the meals are prepared, the beds are made, the children are dressed, and everyone gets to work, school, and other activities on time.

But trying to control everything can be exhausting, and it can also cause friction with your friends and family.

This humorous, yet thought-provoking book guides you as you discover for yourself the freedom and reward of living a life “out of control,” in which you allow God to be seated in the rightful place in your life. Armed with relevant biblical and current examples (both to emulate and to avoid), doable ideas, new thought patterns, and practical tools to implement, Let It Go will gently lead you out of the land of over-control and into a place of quiet trust.

A companion video-based study for small groups is also available.

8 Measuring Landscapes - Andre Botequilha Leitao, Joseph Miller, Jack Ahern & Kevin McGarigal
Auteur : Andre Botequilha Leitao, Joseph Miller, Jack Ahern & Kevin McGarigal
Genre : Art & Architecture
This practical handbook bridges the gap between those scientists who study landscapes and the planners and conservationists who must then decide how best to preserve and build environmentally-sound habitats. Until now, only a small portion of the relevant science has influenced the decision-making arenas where the future of our landscapes is debated and decided. The authors explain specific tools and concepts to measure a landscape's structure, form, and change over time. Metrics studied include patch richness, class area proportion, patch number and density, mean patch size, shape, radius of gyration, contagion, edge contrast, nearest neighbor distance, and proximity. These measures will help planners and conservationists make better land use decisions for the future.

9 You Should Have Left - Daniel Kehlmann & Ross Benjamin
Auteur : Daniel Kehlmann & Ross Benjamin

A screenwriter, his wife, and their four-year old daughter rent a house in the mountains of Germany, but something isn’t right. As he toils on a sequel to his most successful movie, the screenwriter notices that rooms aren’t where he remembers them—and finds in his notebook words that are not his own.

10 Economic Complexity: Measuring the Intangibles - Matthieu Cristelli, Andrea Tacchella & Luciano Pietronero
Auteur : Matthieu Cristelli, Andrea Tacchella & Luciano Pietronero
Genre : Finance
New economic theories must be strongly data-driven in order to  provide a more concrete scientific grounding for Economics.

The comparison of these measures with monetary figures, as the Gross Domestic Products or the Income per capita, uncovers new information to assess the hidden potential of growth and development of countries 
This work is intended as an introduction to both the scientific activity and business-oriented applications of the framework and methodologies presented. 
Economic complexity permits to acknowledge that Finance and Economics are two highly connected aspects of the same general problem and provides a framework to discuss, both from a conceptual and practical

14 Measuring Strategies in Tactile Coordinate Metrology (Carl Zeiss Academy Metrology) - Robert Roithmeier
Auteur : Robert Roithmeier
Genre : Encyclopedias
Today, there is hardly any workpiece whose form parameters cannot be measured by means of coordinate measuring machines. The universal use of these machines allows a wide range of application of this technology which, however, increases inevitably the complexity of its handling.
The numerous options of the machine-specific operating software on the one hand and the various theoretical considerations regarding a target-oriented treatment of measuring jobs on the other hand result in the fact that the measuring results obtained from the same coordinate measuring machine on the same workpiece under similar conditions may differ. 
In Order to increase the comparability of measuring results, it is necessary to provide the operators of coordinate measuring machines –in addition to a well-founded AUKOM training – with procedure options for planning, performing, evaluating a

Genre : Christianity
In this six-session women’s small group Bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately), Karen Ehman provides practical, biblically based steps for letting go of the need to control.

And trying to control it all is not only exhausting, but can also cause us to lose friends and sometimes, the affection of our families.

36 Methods for Measuring Greenhouse Gas Balances and Evaluating Mitigation Options in Smallholder Agriculture - Todd S. Rosenstock, Mariana C. Rufino, Klaus Butterbach-Bahl, Lini Wollenberg & Meryl Richards
Auteur : Todd S. Rosenstock, Mariana C. Rufino, Klaus Butterbach-Bahl, Lini Wollenberg & Meryl Richards
Genre : Agriculture
​​This book provides standards and guidelines for quantifying greenhouse gas emissions and removals in smallholder agricultural systems and comparing options for climate change mitigation based on emission reductions and livelihood trade-offs. Globally, agriculture is directly responsible for about 11% of annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and induces an additional 17% through land use change, mostly in developing countries. Farms in the developing countries of sub-Saharan Africa and Asia are predominately managed by smallholders, with 80% of land holdings smaller than ten hectares. However, little to no information exists on greenhouse gas emissions and mitigation potentials in smallholder agriculture.  Greenhouse gas measurements in agriculture are expensive, time consuming, and error prone, challenges only exacerbated by the heterogeneity of smallholder systems and la

38 The Dance of Time - Michael Judge
Auteur : Michael Judge
Genre : Europe
Did you know that the ancient Romans left sixty days of winter out of their calendar, considering these two months a dead time of lurking terror and therefore better left unnamed? That they had a horror of even numbers, hence the tendency for months with an odd number of days? That robed and bearded druids from the Celts stand behind our New Year’s figure of Father Time? That if Thursday is Thor’s day, then Friday belongs to his faithful wife, Freya, queen of the Norse gods? That the name Easter may derive from the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring, Eostre, whose consort was a hare, our Easter Bunny? 
Three streams of history created the Western calendar—first from the Sumerians, then from the Celtic and Germanic peoples in the North, and finally from Palestine with the rise of Christianity. Michael Judge teases out the contributions of each stream to the shape of the calenda

41 Measuring Empathy in the 21st Century: Development of an Empathy Index Rooted in Social Cognitive Neuroscience and Social Justice (Report) - Social Work Research
Auteur : Social Work Research
Genre : Social Science
Instruments currently being used to measure empathy do not reflect the recent neuroscientific scholarship on mirror neurons and the importance of self-awareness and emotion regulation in experiencing the fullest extent of empathy. The authors describe a theoretical framework for the initial development and pilot application of an empathy self-report instrument, the Empathy Assessment Index (EAI). The EAI is based on a comprehensive definition of empathy that is rooted in social cognitive neuroscience, developmental psychology, and social work's commitment to social justice. The authors present reliability, concurrent validity, and data reduction and refinement results from the first administration of the index. Four of the five EAI subscales had excellent internal consistency and test-retest reliability. Three subscales were tested for concurrent validity. The exploratory factor analysis

Later, Stewart introduces new ratios that make EVA much more powerful and much easier to use than ever before.

"While it is usually helpful to launch improvement programs, many such programs soon get bogged down in detail.

This is the time to get some data."
Watts S. Humphrey, from the Foreword

50 New Methods for Measuring and Analyzing Segregation - Mark Fossett
Auteur : Mark Fossett
Genre : Social Science
This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license.
