Description : From Barbie and Action Man to guns via bicycles, perfume and trainers, The gendered object is an intriguing collection of new writing on the way in which objects of everyday life are made socially acceptable and 'appropriate' for women or men. What does the Strawberry Shortcake doll tell us about views of the adult female body? When does the necktie become anti-establishment? How does a woman relate to a washing machine? And can a hearing aid really be gendered? These questions are answered and many others raised in this entertaining study of design for men and women.
Description : Ella likes running and climbing and jumping - but she does not like her nappy! It's time to learn how to be a potty superstar. Join Ella on her journey to becoming a potty superstar and learn all about potties, washing hands and accidents. Soon, you'll have a potty superstar of your own! Toddler Triumphs will reassure, encourage and celebrate the successes (and sometimes accidents!) of toddlers learning to use the potty. Tabbed pages encourage toddlers to turn the pages themselves, and the funny text and bright art will have little ones coming back to the book over and over again.
Description : This textbook on Python programming is meant for all interested people in Python- from beginners to those seeking to graduate to the advanced level, researchers, professionals, aspiring data analysts and data visualizers. Based on Python 3.X, the textbook covers the basic essential components in understanding of pythons and a dozen of Python libraries such as NumPy, SciPy, sympy, and pandas. Each concept is explained with help of codes, solved examples, figures and screenshots followed by exhaustive chapter-end exercises. Advanced topics, such as, matplotlib, mapping applications like base map and folium, natural language tool kit (NLTK), gensim and vector space model can be accessed online along with solutions to chapter-end questions, more assignments and power point presentations. Few highlights: comprehensive coverage of Model AICTE syllabi concept clarity with screenshots and solved examples gives logical explanations to programming algorithms each example code tested on Python 3.X interpreter or Jupyter notebook all codes can be accessed and practices on GitHub.

Description : Stochastic processes and diffusion theory are the mathematical underpinnings of many scientific disciplines, including statistical physics, physical chemistry, molecular biophysics, communications theory and many more. Many books, reviews and research articles have been published on this topic, from the purely mathematical to the most practical. This book offers an analytical approach to stochastic processes that are most common in the physical and life sciences, as well as in optimal control and in the theory of filltering of signals from noisy measurements. Its aim is to make probability theory in function space readily accessible to scientists trained in the traditional methods of applied mathematics, such as integral, ordinary, and partial differential equations and asymptotic methods, rather than in probability and measure theory.
Description : In the UK's current climate of budget cuts and policy changes, local government officials need to be aware of best practice in both broadcasting their services and responding to crises in their communities. Meanwhile, changes in the media - from the rise of social media, to web access for older consumers - present new challenges for local councils about how to best convey their key messages and protect their 'brand'. Full of expert advice, tools and case studies from a variety of sources, PR and Communication in Local Government and Public Services is a practical reference guide to delivering professional public relations for both communications and the delivery of local services. It offers a detailed analysis of the issues that are unique to this challenging and fast-moving environment, whilst reinforcing the importance of effective and meaningful communication to both local democracy and the planning and delivery of quality services. About the PR in Practice series: Published in collaboration with the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR), the PR in Practice series comprises accessible, practical introductions to day-to-day issues of public relations practice and management. The series' action-oriented approach keeps knowledge and skills up to date.
