Excerpt from Effective Expression: A Textbook on Composition and Rhetoric for the Four Years of High School and the First Year of College We trust we have made the book self-explanatory. We have emphasized getting ready to write in an introductory chapter, for it is the best approach to the subject; we have treated the fundamental prin ciples and the rhetorical qualities, vitally, for too often they have been but empty words; we have shown the philosophy of the paragraph and the topic-sentence, together with the relation of the topic-sentence to the method of development, for the paragraph is the unit of the composition, and mastery of it goes far toward mastery of the whole subject. We have corrected the popular conception that rhetoric is flowery writing by showing that it is the art of effective writing; we have shown that diction, grammar, the use of figures of speech, and the study of poetry are essential for all who would so handle pure, crude facts, the raw material, as to make the finished product effective. We have shown that oral composition is best treated along with written composition and that such a method both saves time and increases efficiency. The chapter on The Finished Product reveals the importance of bringing the knowledge of literature to bear upon our writing, and shows how and what to read until one has formed his own taste and needs less guidance.

The production of proteins in mammalian cells is an important tool in numerous scientific and commercial areas. For example, proteins for human therapy, vaccination or diagnostic applications are typically produced in mammalian cells. Gene cloning, protein engineering, biochemical and biophysical characterization of proteins also require the use of gene expression in mammalian cells. Other applications in widespread use involve screening of libraries of chemical compounds in drug discovery, and the development of cell-based biosensors. This book presents a state-of-the-art comprehensive coverage of the technical aspects of gene expression in mammalian cells, written by experienced scientists working at the forefront of the field.

As the 21st century ushers in the era of Common Core State Standards, the goal of teaching expands from a basic transmission of facts to the development of cognitive skills that equip students to achieve more of their unique potential. This seminal book focuses on five essential concepts from neuroeducation that should underlie all teaching decisions: (1) neuroplasticity, findings that the structure and function of the brain change in response to learning; (2) potential, the capacity for all students to make learning gains; (3) malleable intelligence, which stands in opposition to traditional views of fixed intellect; (4) the Body-Brain System, the role of physical fitness, healthy nutrition, and positive emotions in facilitating learning; and (5) metacognition, teaching students to think about their thinking. To support classroom implementation, these discussions include vignettes, examples, teaching strategies, reflective questions, and connections between brain-based learning principles and the Common Core. The text concludes by unmasking myths and misconceptions that may obscure these core concepts.


The purpose of the work in rhetoric is to acquaint the student , chiefly through the
study of good models , with the fundamental principles of effective expression in
writing . No attempt is made to lay down a philosophy of style , but such ...

The field of sex therapy has experienced tremendous growth in the last 20 years . The use of the term "sex therapy" for most clinicians brings several well-known therapists to mind and is associated with the treatment of a fairly limited number of sexual problems. The view of sex therapy as a profession has had both positive and negative consequences. The editor’s state that the purpose in writing and editing this book was to build on the work of individually oriented sex therapy by adding the systems perspective. This book, then, represents an attempt at the integration of sex and marital or systems therapy.

An exploration of the way videogames mount arguments and make expressive statements about the world that analyzes their unique persuasive power in terms of their computational properties. Videogames are an expressive medium, and a persuasive medium; they represent how real and imagined systems work, and they invite players to interact with those systems and form judgments about them. In this innovative analysis, Ian Bogost examines the way videogames mount arguments and influence players. Drawing on the 2,500-year history of rhetoric, the study of persuasive expression, Bogost analyzes rhetoric's unique function in software in general and videogames in particular. The field of media studies already analyzes visual rhetoric, the art of using imagery and visual representation persuasively. Bogost argues that videogames, thanks to their basic representational mode of procedurality (rule-based representations and interactions), open a new domain for persuasion; they realize a new form of rhetoric. Bogost calls this new form "procedural rhetoric," a type of rhetoric tied to the core affordances of computers: running processes and executing rule-based symbolic manipulation. He argues further that videogames have a unique persuasive power that goes beyond other forms of computational persuasion. Not only can videogames support existing social and cultural positions, but they can also disrupt and change these positions themselves, leading to potentially significant long-term social change. Bogost looks at three areas in which videogame persuasion has already taken form and shows considerable potential: politics, advertising, and learning.

“Each item in Slatkin’s Effective Python teaches a self-contained lesson with its own source code. This makes the book random-access: Items are easy to browse and study in whatever order the reader needs. I will be recommending Effective Python to students as an admirably compact source of mainstream advice on a very broad range of topics for the intermediate Python programmer.” —Brandon Rhodes, software engineer at Dropbox and chair of PyCon 2016-2017 It’s easy to start coding with Python, which is why the language is so popular. However, Python’s unique strengths, charms, and expressiveness can be hard to grasp, and there are hidden pitfalls that can easily trip you up. Effective Python will help you master a truly “Pythonic” approach to programming, harnessing Python’s full power to write exceptionally robust and well-performing code. Using the concise, scenario-driven style pioneered in Scott Meyers’ best-selling Effective C++, Brett Slatkin brings together 59 Python best practices, tips, and shortcuts, and explains them with realistic code examples. Drawing on years of experience building Python infrastructure at Google, Slatkin uncovers little-known quirks and idioms that powerfully impact code behavior and performance. You’ll learn the best way to accomplish key tasks, so you can write code that’s easier to understand, maintain, and improve. Key features include Actionable guidelines for all major areas of Python 3.x and 2.x development, with detailed explanations and examples Best practices for writing functions that clarify intention, promote reuse, and avoid bugs Coverage of how to accurately express behaviors with classes and objects Guidance on how to avoid pitfalls with metaclasses and dynamic attributes More efficient approaches to concurrency and parallelism Better techniques and idioms for using Python’s built-in modules Tools and best practices for collaborative development Solutions for debugging, testing, and optimization in order to improve quality and performance

How long will this planet go on? How long will the universe last? Scientists give projected answers based on knowledge of universal physical laws. They talk of billions of years. When Christians take part in worship they express belief in what are called the Last Things--Death, Judgment, Heaven, Hell, concepts based on the Scriptures. Can these beliefs be held on to? Concerning future events the Bible presents diverse and even incredible ideas that are held by Christians. This book is an attempt to interpret the Bible in a credible way and to encourage faith in God's purposes.
