Although studies indicate the assumption of one single European market, other research emphasizes European countries have distinct market identities. Meanwhile, as individual countries begin to have a more widespread understanding of culture, global culture still remains unshared between countries. Consumption Culture in Europe: Insight into the Beverage Industry brings the most relevant theories about culture and European market segmentation as well as providing updated data for the evaluation and analyses of the European consumption patterns in the beverage market. This comprehensive collection is an essential tool for policy-makers and those interested in end-markets and consumer affairs.

Insight Into Information is based on sixty years of research on the Secret Messages and Hidden Maps Inside of Information. These several levels of subtle, subliminal and secret meanings provide reverberating, resonant echoes in all information much as the background music in movies but with more levels of meaning in these fields: science, religion, literature, entertainment, TV, advertising, technology and literally all fields of endeavor at home, at work, in school and at play. Many have already benefited from this information. The author, a retired clinical and rehabilitation psychologist, used this information in his private, clinical and consulting practice in schools and industry. This new, proven research shows: The helpful hidden hooks from which you can benefit. You will learn the inborn universal maps which influence and guide all of us in marvelous ways--including the name GOD on the human head and face. The harmful, deceptive hooks inside of words of which you are not aware but which can influence you. The word now is an example, as in buy now: Now is an anagram of won and own. These anagrams puzzle our brain and set up delays which advertisers want and to get you to participate in the anagram game. You will learn how to avoid such hidden hooks. Don't be cheated. Know these hidden hooks, control your choices and make well informed decisions. The Table of contents lists the chapters which describe the many ways you can benefit from knowing these hidden messages and secret maps in religion; health and healing; fun and entertainment; advertising; merchandising; education; communications; literature and the hidden influences inside of names. The Afterword at the end of the book tells the story of how the author became interested, did the research, used the research with patients and organizations, and wrote the book: the when, where, why and how of the origin of the information in this book.

This book focuses on novel approaches for thoracic computed tomography (CT) image registration and determination of respiratory motion models in a range of patient scenarios. It discusses the use of image registration processes to remove the inconsistencies between medical images acquired using different devices. In the context of comparative research and medical analysis, these methods are of immense value in image registration procedures, not just for thoracic CT images, but for all types of medical images in multiple modalities, and also in establishing a mean respiration motion model. Combined with advanced techniques, the methods proposed have the potential to advance the field of computer vision and help improve existing methods. The book is a valuable resource for those in the scientific community involved in modeling respiratory motion for a large number of people.

Cutting-Edge Techniques to Better Analyze and Predict Complex Physical Phenomena Geometric Modeling and Mesh Generation from Scanned Images shows how to integrate image processing, geometric modeling, and mesh generation with the finite element method (FEM) to solve problems in computational biology, medicine, materials science, and engineering. Based on the author’s recent research and course at Carnegie Mellon University, the text explains the fundamentals of medical imaging, image processing, computational geometry, mesh generation, visualization, and finite element analysis. It also explores novel and advanced applications in computational biology, medicine, materials science, and other engineering areas. One of the first to cover this emerging interdisciplinary field, the book addresses biomedical/material imaging, image processing, geometric modeling and visualization, FEM, and biomedical and engineering applications. It introduces image-mesh-simulation pipelines, reviews numerical methods used in various modules of the pipelines, and discusses several scanning techniques, including ones to probe polycrystalline materials. The book next presents the fundamentals of geometric modeling and computer graphics, geometric objects and transformations, and curves and surfaces as well as two isocontouring methods: marching cubes and dual contouring. It then describes various triangular/tetrahedral and quadrilateral/hexahedral mesh generation techniques. The book also discusses volumetric T-spline modeling for isogeometric analysis (IGA) and introduces some new developments of FEM in recent years with applications.

The notion of the painting as an art object is a relatively recent invention. The Self-Aware Image offers an impressive and complex account of the origins and development of this invention from the late Renaissance through the end of the baroque age. In comparison to the old image characterized by its preeminently liturgical function and its display in a predetermined space, the painting as the new image is increasingly autonomous and movable. As a modern art object, the painting becomes the focus of an aesthetic contemplation through its insertion into a gallery or a collection. As a result of the Protestant iconoclasm and the advancement of scientific knowledge, the essence and role of the image is put into question and thematized not only by theologians and scholars, but especially by artists. The painting thus becomes a field of visual experimentation in which art reflects on itself, its potential, its limits, its truth, and its nothingness. The representation of windows, doors, niches, mirrors, and paintings enable artists to embed the image within the image, to frame the fictiveness of the image in order to deceive, puzzle, and challenge the beholder. The pictorial devices through which artists introduce their authorial self into the image and stage the making of the image itself form the foundation of a new poetics: the poetics of metapainting. First published in French in 1993, Victor Stoichita's Self-Aware Image has become a classic of the history of art. This new, updated, and improved English edition marks the twentieth anniversary of a work that radically changed the perception of seventeenth-century art and that constitutes an ever-valid reference for contemporary scholarship. An introduction by Lorenzo Pericolo illustrates the great importance of the book for our comprehension of baroque painting.

German curator Peter Friese has been intrigued by his country's ability to atone for some of the crimes of the Nazi era while other atrocities remain buried in the national subconcious. To explore the idea of the transformability of memory, Friese selected 12 diverse contemporary artists from various countries-each of whom had at some time produced art reflecting on the Holocaust-to elaborate on the role of art in exploring such layered and complex issues. Included are noted artists Christian Boltanski, General Idea, Shimon Attie and Jochen Gerz, among others, and eight in-depth essays. A thought-provoking exhibition catalog.

Shame Images Of God And The Cycle Of Violence In Adults Who Experienced Childhood Corporal Punishment

Theoretically rich and empirically sound, this provocative study demonstrates that shame, a history of childhood corporal punishment, and certain religious beliefs are contributing factors to the cycle of violence that can occur over generations in families. Good begins her study with a thorough survey of the psychological and pastoral literature that deals with issues surrounding shame, corporal punishment, and beliefs about God. She then describes the results of her research that involved having individuals complete questionnaires on childhood punishment, religious practices, and feelings about suicide and depression. These results were then compared with those from tests designed to measure shame, guilt, and violence between adult partners. Good's research suggests that higher levels of violence and shame correspond with punitive images of God and that childhood corporal punishment may result in a higher incidence of adult depression. This fascinating work provides insight into psychological issues that affect many adults today and will be of interest to anyone who is concerned with healing the wounds of those who suffered through childhood violence.

Fuel Plume Image Mixing Analysis Formulation With Proper Treatment Of Non Constant Velocity Flowfields

A previously developed technique allows an estimate of integral mixing to be obtained from an image of laser scattered light from particle seeded fuel in the hypervelocity flow through a scramjet combustor. This previous mixing analysis formulation contains an assumption of a constant velocity flowfield across the plane of the fuel plume image. For high-speed scramjet combustors, the velocity flowfield is quite uniform and an assumption of constant velocity works well. Applying this same mixing analysis to fuel plume images obtained from a mid-speed scramjet combustor makes it desirable to remove the constant velocity assumption. This is due to the non-uniform velocity flowfields present in mid-speed scramjet combustors. A new formulation of the mixing analysis methodology is developed and presented so that the technique can be applied to mid-speed scramjet combustor without the need to assume a constant velocity flowfield.
