Designing Modern Britain

British culture is marked by indelible icons—red double-decker buses, large oak wardrobes, and the compact sleekness of the Mini. But British industrial and product design have long lived in the shadows of architecture and fashion. Cheryl Buckley here delves into the history of British design culture, and in doing so uniquely tracks the evolution of the British national identity. Designing Modern Britain demonstrates how interior design, ceramics, textiles, and furniture craft of the twentieth century contain numerous hallmark examples of British design. The book explores topics connected to the British design aesthetic, including the spread of international modernism, the eco-conscious designs of the 1980s and 1990s, and the influence of celebrity product designers and their labels. Buckley also investigates popular nostalgia in recent times, considering how museum and gallery exhibitions have been instrumental in reimagining Britain’s past and how the heritage industry has fueled a growing trend among designers of employing images of British culture in their work. A thoughtful look at the aesthetic heritage of a nation that has left its footprint around the globe, Designing Modern Britain will be a valuable text for students and professionals in design.

Camouflage isn't just a type of clothing that hunters and soldiers wear to blend into natural surroundings. Animals have camouflage, too. Camouflage often relies on colors, but patterns help animals blend in, too. The leaf-tailed gecko uses the color and patterns on its body to conceal itself from predators. Its body mimics the leaves of the trees in which it lives. Many predators use camouflage to sneak up on their prey. This book explores the many different animals that employ camouflage and how this incredible adaptation has developed over time.

Abstract: "This thesis is devoted to the Earth Mover's Distance (EMD), an edit distance between distributions, and its use within content-based image retrieval (CBIR). The major CBIR problem discussed is the pattern problem: Given an image and a query pattern, determine if the image contains a region which is visually similar to the pattern; if so, find at least one such image region. An important problem that arises in applying the EMD to CBIR is the EMD under transformation (EMDG̲) problem: find a transformation of one distribution which minimizes its EMD to another, where the set of allowable transformations G is given. The problem of estimating the size/scale at which a pattern occurs in an image is phrased and efficiently solved as an EMDG̲ problem. For a large class of transformation sets, we also present a monotonically convergent iteration to find at least a locally optimal transformation. Our pattern problem solution is the SEDL (Scale Estimation for Directed Location) image retrieval system. Three important contributions of SEDL are (1) a general framework for finding both color and shape patterns, (2) the previously mentioned scale estimation algorithm using the EMD, and (3) a directed (as opposed to exhaustive) search strategy."

Early Childhood Curriculum for All Learners: Integrating Play and Literacy Activities is designed to teach early childhood professionals about the latest research on play and early literacy and then to show them practical methods for adapting this research to everyday classroom practices that will encourage the development of learning skills. The authors link solid, play-based research to specific developmentally appropriate practices. By combining these two areas, the text demonstrates that academic learning and play activities are highly compatible, and that children can and do develop academic skills through play. In addition, the text focuses on socio-dramatic play, a recently acknowledged, essential aspect of child-initiated play interactions. It provides specific strategies that link these interactive behaviors with the early academic skills needed for the initial primary grades. Implementation of the information presented in this book will enable children to experience a richer transition into primary education classrooms.

In Green Equilibrium, Christopher Wills explains the rules by which ecosystems maintain a diversity of interdependent species, in particular the balance of predators and prey. Wills is both an eminent academic and a hugely experienced field-biologist. In presenting the concept of 'green equilibrium', he draws on a fascinating range of examples, including coral reefs off the densely populated Philippines, the isolated and densely forested valleys of Papua New Guinea, the changing Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, and a Californian ranch being allowed to return to a wild state. In each case he assesses the impact of modern changes and attempts at conservation on these delicately balanced ecosystems. Wills shows how human populations, too, are an integral part of the picture. We now know from genetic evidence that over the course of history, as humans spread out of Africa, populations adapted as a result of environmental conditions. Striking new evidence indicates that some human populations carry genes from past encounters with other hominids (Neanderthals and Denisovans), as well as genetic adaptations to local hazards such as malaria. Wills argues that the most effective approaches to conserving green equilibria come out of evolutionary insights, and from close involvement of the local communities who have lived and adapted to them.
