Description: Making Sense of Inner Sense ‘Terra cognita’ is terra incognita. It
is difficult to find someone not taken abackand fascinated by the
incomprehensible but indisputable fact: there are material systems
which are aware of themselves. Consciousness is self-cognizing
code. During homo sapiens’s relentness and often frustrated search
for self-understanding various theories of consciousness have been
and continue to be proposed. However, it remains unclear whether
and at what level the problems of consciousness and intelligent
thought can be resolved. Science’s greatest challenge is to answer
the fundamental question: what precisely does a cognitive… more…

Protective Operations: A Handbook for Security and Law Enforcement (by Glenn McGovern)



Author(s): Glenn McGovern
Publisher: CRC Press
Publish date: 2011-03-22
ISBN-10: 1439851719
ISBN-13: 9781439851715
Language: English
Description:
Protective Operations: A Handbook for Security and Law
Enforcement is designed as a reference for law
enforcement and security organizations tasked with protecting the
welfare of an individual or groups of individuals. To be
effective and professional, protective operations require the
incorporation of a variety of skill sets. However, many
departments and jurisdictions have only limited resources and
training available. Filling this void, the book identifies issues
particular to local law enforcement — and the private security
teams that may be called in later — and offers suggestions and
guidance for confronting… more…

Reconciliation of Geometry and Perception in Radiation Physics (FOCUS Series) (by Benoit Beckers, Pierre Beckers)



Publisher: Wiley-ISTE
Publish date: 2014-06-30
ISBN-10: 1848215835
ISBN-13: 9781848215832
Language: English
Description: Reconciliation of Geometry and Perception in Radiation
Physics approaches the topic of projective geometry as it
applies to radiation physics and attempts to negate its negative
reputation. With an original outlook and transversal approach, the
book emphasizes common geometric properties and their potential
transposition between domains. After defining both radiation and
geometric properties, authors Benoit and Pierre Beckers explain the
necessity of reconciling geometry and perception in fields like
architectural and urban physics, which are notable for the
regularity of their forms and the complexity of their interactions.
