New Essays admin These recent old ages, cordial reception industry, more peculiarly, hotel concerns have shown huge differences in its industry growing.
This research is part of a much larger monograph study that is under contract with Boydell and Brewer Press. I found these records quite dense and somewhat unwieldy. Records for cases against individuals with the last names ranging from Aa-Ar totaled over Most likely I will have to adjust my plans to use these records in my monograph.
The research I completed at the York City Archives was much more fruitful. I was able to go through the city court records in a couple of days, and found a few key examples to incorporate into my monograph. Despite numerable advances in the study of popular politics, we still know remarkably little about how ordinary English men and women responded to the transformations that accompanied the regicide, the creation of a republic, and the rise of the Cromwellian Protectorate.
The book delves into the spaces where every day practices, social interactions, and power struggles intersected with the macro-politics of regime change. Tussles at local alehouses, encounters with excise collectors in the high street, and contests over authority at the marketplace reveal how the sites and scenes of everyday life became places where national politics were felt in the most ordinary of activities.
Using a series of case studies from counties, boroughs, and the London metropolis, I argue that factional discourses and shifting power relations complicated traditional patterns of social interaction that supported the social and political orders.
Men and women who discussed unwelcome taxes by the market stall, griped over policies at the victualing house, and were pointedly silent before state pageants expressed their disaffection through acts of protest that threatened to provoke new divisions or redefine old conflicts.
Localized disaffection was broadcast beyond communities in newsbooks, pamphlets, and broadsides, shaping political rhetoric that refashioned grassroots grievances to promote royalist desires. Grassroots agitation—from disaffected mutters to ritualistic violence against officials—formed an integral part of the broad political culture that shaped debates over governance during one of the most volatile decades in British history.
Phenomena in the physical, biological and social spheres of existence, can, theoretically, be modeled and simulated in a computing device with arbitrary precision, given unlimited computational resources which are not available in practice.
In addition, every phenomenon can be interpreted as a computation running of a programperformed by some sub-system of the physical universe. Starting from this computational perspective, we propose that the problem of consciousness can also be investigated as a computational problem, in carrying out a scientific program aimed at building artificial entities that show verifiable emergence of consciousness.
Our hypothesis is that consciousness in an artificial device is unlikely to manifest itself originating in a detached computer, but rather in a humanoid robotic device that has full sensory capacities and is capable both of active interaction with its physical environment and of full sentence communication with humans.
As a result, we propose that in an attempt to create artificial, man-made devices that are capable of acquiring true consciousness, we need to build a small society of fully sentient robots that are maximally inter-operational with their environment, with humans and with each other, that have the following features: A learning-enabled, self-restructuring, artificial neural network-based central cognitive organ "brain".
A global communication subsystem of the brain that separates conscious sensation from unconscious by filtering out conflicting sensations, in order to form a coherent view of the robots' environment.
The ability of abstraction by generalization to allow memory forming, storage and retrieval. The ability to recognize and synthesize human language, in form of full sentence communication. We present preliminary simulation results regarding the learning ability aspect of the proposed central neural organ.Electronic Government Design - Ake Gronlund.
Uploaded by liamoguitar Comparative Study on Rational Thinking and Creative Thinking Post-Modern Decision Making Lars-Erik Janlert provides an essay on decision making in the face of profound IT use.
in analogy with how industrial machine production superseded manual machine . In our study, each of these factors (quality, network size, and privacy assurance) is examined separately for its influence on intention to adopt mobile apps, intention to disclose information.
He graduated in with High Honors in comparative religion from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. More recently, he co-founded and still co-chairs the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
He was the first to apply the term Cyberspace to the "place" it presently describes. Study abroad programs led her to Mexico where she lived with a Mayan community to study Mayan anthropology and to Chile where she interned with the Youth Socialist Party.
After college Heather moved to Washington, DC where she worked by day at the Pew Center for Civic Journalism. "Comparative Study of urban morphologies between Green Bay, WI, Albacete, Spain, and Llomza, Poland" Grant in Aid of Research Spring I have since completed a draft of my essay and submitted it to the editors of a volume on North Carolina during World War I, which received an advanced contract from the University of Tennessee Press.
This study developed and tested a model of online consumer behavior that links the actual decision to purchase from virtual stores to attitude toward virtual stores. Attitude was modeled based on a set of antecedents, namely perceived security, peer influence, behavioral control, and usefulness.
