Think Like a Programmer : An Introduction to Creative Problem Solving

The real challenge of programming isn’t learning a language’s syntax – it’s learning to creatively solve problems so you can build something great. In this one-of-a-kind text, author V. Anton Spraul breaks down the ways that programmers solve problems and teaches you what other introductory books often ignore: how to Think Like a Programmer. Each chapter tackles a single programming concept, like classes, pointers, and recursion, and open-ended exercises throughout challenge you to apply your knowledge.

Food and Brain Health

Food and Brain Health

Nature has gifted mankind with a plethora of flora bearing fruits, vegetables and nuts. The diverse array of bioactive nutrients present in these natural products plays a pivotal role in prevention and cure of various brain related or neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer‘s disease (AD), Parkinson‘s disease, ageing and other neuronal dysfunctions. Accumulated evidence suggests that naturally occurring phyto-compounds, such as polyphenolic antioxidants found in fruits, vegetables, herbs and nuts, may potentially protect neuro-degeneration, and improve memory, cognitionand other brain functions.

Understanding The Universe: From Quarks To Cosmos

Understanding The Universe: From Quarks To Cosmos

The Big Bang, the birth of the universe, was a singular event. All of the matter of the universe was concentrated at a single point, with temperatures so high that even the familiar protons and neutrons of atoms did not yet exist, but rather were replaced by a swirling maelstrom of energy, matter and antimatter. Exotic quarks and leptons flickered briefly into existence, before merging back into the energy sea.This book explains the fascinating world of quarks and leptons and the forces that govern their behavior. Told from an experimental physicist’s perspective, it forgoes mathematical complexity, using instead particularly accessible figures and apt analogies.

An Open Book : What and How Young Children Learn From Picture and Story Books

An Open Book : What and How Young Children Learn From Picture and Story Books

Looking at and listening to picture and story books is a ubiquitous activity, enjoyed by many young children and their parents. Well before children can read for themselves they are able to learn from books. Looking at and listening to books increases children’s general knowledge, understanding about the world and promotes language acquisition. Capitalising on children’s natural love of books, recent research indicates that both socio-pragmatic and cognitive mechanisms underlie what and how young children benefit from looking at and listening to picture and story books.

Between Stage and Screen: Ingmar Bergman Directs

Between Stage and Screen: Ingmar Bergman Directs

Ingmar Bergman is worldwide known as a film and stage director. Yet no-one has attempted to compare his stage and screen activities. In Between stage and screen Egil Törnqvist examines formal and thematical correspondences and differences between a number of Bergman’s stage, screen, and radio productions. In the prologue Bergman’s spiritual and aesthetic heritage and his position in the twentieth century media landscape is outlined. In the epilogue the question is answered to what extent one can speak of Bergman’s directorial ‘method’ irrespective of the chosen medium.

Sportdiktatur : Bewegungskulturen im nationalsozialistischen Österreich

Sportdiktatur : Bewegungskulturen im nationalsozialistischen Österreich

Primäre Intention des Buches ist die Reduktion des enormen österreichischen Forschungsdefizit zur Aufarbeitung des Sportlebens unter dem NS-Regime. Daher wird der gesamte Bereich des Sportes im Territiorium Österreichs zwischen 1938 und 1945 dargestellt: Der Breiten- und Spitzensport, Massen- und Minderheitensport, den Vereins- und Jugendsport sowie der Sport der Formationen. Auf Grund der Materialfülle wird die Überblicksdarstellung von einer Detailanalyse zu drei Zeitpunkten begleitet: In den Monaten nach dem “Anschluss”, rund um den Kriegsbeginn und in der Endphase des Regimes nach Stalingrad.
