Warum weniger mehr ist Mit praktischen Anleitungen

Pubpsher: Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag
Leichter leben Viele von uns setzen sich selbst enorm unter Druck, um unterschiedlichsten Ansprüchen zu genügen. Für das, was uns wirklich am Herzen liegt, finden wir kaum Zeit. Stress ist unausweichlich, aber steuerbar, daher empfiehlt Sháá Wasmund: Schluss mit den To-do-Listen, Schluss damit, immer möglichst viel auf einmal tun zu wollen. Sie zeigt, an welchen Stellschrauben man drehen muss, um beruflich wie privat gesünder und zufriedener durchs Leben zu gehen – indem man sich fokussiert, die richtigen Prioritäten setzt und Prozesse verschlankt. Weniger ist mehr: Das ist eine wohltuend entlastende Erkenntnis. Mit Handlungsanleitungen, Achtsamkeitstechniken und Übungen, ansprechend illustriert.

Fifty Years of Condensed Matter Physics
Author: Nai-Phuan Ong,Ravin Bhatt,Ravin N. Bhatt
Pubpsher: Princeton University Press
This book presents articles written by leading experts surveying several major subfields in Condensed Matter Physics and related sciences. The articles are based on invited talks presented at a recent conference honoring Nobel laureate Philip W. Anderson of Princeton University, who coined the phrase "More is different" while formulating his contention that all fields of physics, indeed all of science, involve equally fundamental insights. The articles introduce and survey current research in areas that have been close to Anderson's interests. Together, they illustrate both the deep impact that Anderson has had in this multifaceted field during the past half century and the progress spawned by his insights. The contributors cover numerous topics under the umbrellas of superconductivity, superfluidity, magnetism, electron localization, strongly interacting electronic systems, heavy fermions, and disorder and frustration in glass and spin-glass systems. They also describe interdisciplinary areas such as the science of olfaction and color vision, the screening of macroions in electrolytes, scaling and renormalization in cosmology, forest fires and the spread of measles, and the investigation of "NP-complete" problems in computer science. The articles are authored by Philip W. Anderson, Per Bak and Kan Chen, G. Baskaran, Juan Carlos Campuzano, Paul Chaikin, John Hopfield, Bernhard Keimer, Scott Kirkpatrick and Bart Selman, Gabriel Kotliar, Patrick Lee, Yoshiteru Maeno, Marc Mezard, Douglas Osheroff et al., H. R. Ott, L. Pietronero et al., T. V. Ramakrishnan, A. Ramirez, Myriam Sarachik, T. Senthil and Matthew P. A. Fisher, B. I. Shklovskii et al., and F. Steglich et al.

Of all the Cambridge Platonists, Henry More has attracted the most scholar ly interest in recent years, as the nature and significance of his contribution to the history of thought has come to be better understood. This revival of interest is in marked contrast to the neglect of More's writings lamented even by his first biographer, Richard Ward, a regret echoed two centuries after his 1 death. Since then such attention as there has been to More has not always served him well. He has been dismissed as credulous on account of his belief in witchcraft while his reputation as the most mystical of the Cambridge 2 school has undermined his reputation as a philosopher. Much of the interest in More in the present century has tended to focus on one particular aspect of his writing. There has been considerable interest in his poems. And he has come to the attention of philosophers thanks to his having corresponded with Descartes. Latterly, however, interest in More has been rekindled by renewed interest in the intellectual history of the seventeenth century and Renaissance. And More has been studied in the context of seventeenth-cen tury science and the wider context of seventeenth-century philosophy. Since More is a figure who belongs to the Renaissance tradition of unified sapientia he is not easily compartmentalised in the categories of modern disciplines. Inevitably discussion of anyone aspect of his thought involves other aspects.

Creating High Value Micro/Nanoelectronics Systems

Category: Technology & Engineering
In the past decades, the mainstream of microelectronics progression was mainly powered by Moore's law focusing on IC miniaturization down to nano scale. However, there is a fast increasing need for "More than Moore" (MtM) products and technology that are based upon or derived from silicon technologies, but do not simply scale with Moore’s law. This book provides new vision, strategy and guidance for the future technology and business development of micro/nanoelectronics.
The proceedings of a symposium commemorating the 450th anniversary of Thomas More's death and the 50th anniversary of his canonization, Interpreting Thomas More's Utopia presents four leading Morean scholars on various aspects central to understanding More's masterpiece. An introduction by Governor Mario M. Cuomo in which he assesses More's influence on his career in public life precedes this stimulating discussion. The contributions, in order of appearance, are A Personal Appreciationby Mario M. Cuomo, The Argument of Utopiaby George M. Logan, The Key to Nowhere: Pride and Utopiaby Thomas I. White, Utopia and Martyrdomby Germain Marc'hadour, and The Idea of Utopia from Hesiod to John Paul IIby John C. Olin.
