Now You See It: How the Brain Science of Attention Will Transform the Way We Live, Work, and Learn

"As scholarly as [it] is . . . this ebook approximately schooling occurs to double as an positive, even exciting, summer season learn. " —The manhattan Times

A awesome mixture of technology and its real-world software, Now you notice It sheds mild on one of many maximum difficulties of our ancient second: our faculties and companies are designed for the final century, now not for a global during which expertise has reshaped the way in which we expect and research. during this knowledgeable and confident paintings, Cathy N. Davidson takes us on a travel of the way forward for paintings and schooling, introducing us to visionaries whose groundbreaking rules will quickly have an effect on each enviornment of our lives, from colleges with curriculums outfitted round games to places of work that use digital environments to coach staff.

Science with Astronomical Near-Infrared Sky Surveys: Proceedings of the Les Houches School, Centre de Physique des Houches, Les Houches, France, 20–24 September, 1993

Amazing development in near-infrared detection expertise and in real-time photo processing has led astronomers to begin venture all-sky surveys within the 1--2 mum variety (project DENIS in Europe and 2MASS within the U. S. A. ), surveys with the intention to have a substantial effect in numerous parts of astronomy.
