Education and philosophy go hand-in-hand. It is through the power of knowledge, our Philosophers laid a foundation of educational theories, and set a stepping stone for the modern day education system and educational institutions. This book gives a comprehensive account of the fundamental theories laid by the philosophers, and the society’s role in shaping them up. Beginning with explaining the theories like Idealism, Naturalism, Pragmatism, and so on, the book moves on to the Philosophers (Indian and Western) and their contribution to the world of education. The book further goes on explaining the contribution of the society and community in overall development of a child. Besides, the chapters elucidate the role of institutions like school, college and home in inculcating the values in a child. The concluding chapters delve on the concepts of Secularism, Democracy and National integration vis-à-vis education. Designed for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of Education, the book will be equally beneficial for the teachers and educationists.

Few empirical studies have focused on women in prison. In the last few years, though, a number of studies have demonstrated that there are fundamental differences between male and female prisoners in an ever-changing penal system. Consequently, there has been a need for more comprehensive studies of female offenders for three primary reasons: (1) imperative research gaps remain to be bridged; (2) the female prison experience is not constant; and (3) prison rates for female offenders, especially minority offenders, have increased considerably in the last few years. A central goal of this book, then, is to provide a balance to the existing literature and research on female prisoners in the United States and, to an extent, abroad, focusing primarily on female offenders and using data gathered from the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. The book utilizes a comprehensive investigative approach by equating the experience of female offenders by the totality of circumstances within an historical, institutional, political, and ideological context. The critical objective is to offer an inclusive analysis of the things that are considered by female inmates to be the most significant before, during, and after their incarceration, as a way of better understanding the reasons that lead to their first incarceration as well as subsequent incarcerations. By reading this book, the reader will have a greater understanding of the many challenges facing female inmates, as well as the relationship between inmates, correctional officers and, by extension, society in general. Also provided is a series of policy recommendations throughout the book, particularly in the concluding chapter and epilogue.

This monograph provides a comprehensive source of analysis and research on alternative investments in the wealth management process, with a special focus on Poland and Eastern Europe. It presents the characteristics that distinguish alternative investments from traditional investments and illustrates the benefits and risks involved in the former. The experience gained in developed countries is extremely valuable for the analysis of both the Polish and Eastern European financial markets. In the theoretical part of the book, key aspects of alternative investments are collected, systematized and developed; subsequently, in the empirical part the results of selected studies on the alternative investment sector around the world are examined. Lastly, the book’s findings are applied to the context of alternative financial investments in Poland, investigating the preferences for alternative investments in the country, which is the largest market in Central and Eastern Europe. Not only of theoretical interest, these insights have a high application value, making the book an essential resource for scholars, practitioners and policymakers alike.

"A COMPREHENSIVE STUDY OF METEOROLOGY AND CLIMATOLOGY" The atmosphere is a complex medium, and its mechanism and process are sometimes very complicated. Its nature however is generally expressed in terms of only a few variables, which are measurable. The data thus recorded provides the raw materials for understanding both temporary (weather) and long term (climate) atmospheric conditions. The variables can be through of as the elements of weather and climate. The most important are: temperature content, pressure and wind. These are the basic ingredients of weather and climate. Measuring how they vary in time and space makes it possible to decipher at least partly the complexities of weather dynamics and climatic patterns. Variation in the climatic elements is frequent, if not continuous over Earth. Such variations are caused by, or at least strongly influenced by certain semi permanent attributes of our planet, which are often referred to as controls. The physical conditions and processes are constantly taking place in the atmosphere and they are subjected to periodic changes over time. The atmosphere reacts by producing an infinitive variety of conditions and phenomena known as collectively as weather. It is the sum of temperature, humidity, cloudiness, precipitation, pressure, winds, storms and other atmospheric variables for a short period of time. "A Comprehensive Study of Meteorology and Climatology" is the book which is specially developed through maximization of simplification of basic concepts and aspects of weather and climate for bringing clear understanding to the readers. This makes its content easily accessible to all geographers (meteorologists, climatologists) and students in all levels; secondary schools, high schools, colleges and universities. This book has been written with the strong aim of helping geographers and alike in getting in-depth understanding and improving their knowledge and skills in all issues of Meteorology and Climatology. FRANK PHILEMON (Mwl.) is an educator and teacher (Mwalimu) of geography subject at Ministry of Education and Vocational Training (MoEVT) in Tanzania. He is also the author of other three bestselling books - Secret of Success in Entrepreneurship, Human population and Development and Human and Economic Geography. The author is confident that this book will be an invaluable asset for schools, colleges and universities and that students as well as teachers and lecturers will find it useful in making the teaching and learning process easier, pleasant and more fruitful.

Die 'Teacher Education and Development Study: Learning to Teach Mathematics (TEDS-M)' der International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) war die erste international-vergleichende Studie, die den tertiären Bildungssektor mit standardisierten Testungen in den Blick nahm. Die Studie verglich die am Ende der Mathematiklehrerausbildung erreichten Kompetenzen von Lehrkräften für die Primarstufe und die Sekundarstufe I in 16 Staaten. Deutschland beteiligte sich mit repräsentativen Stichproben von Mathematiklehrkräften für die Primarstufe bzw. die Sekundarstufe I im letzten Jahr ihrer Ausbildung aus allen Bundesländern sowie einer repräsentativen Stichprobe von Lehrerausbildenden in entsprechenden Ausbildungsgängen. Diese Skalendokumentation enthält - soweit freigegeben - die Instrumente aller TEDS-M-Befragungen und -Testungen in deutscher und englischer Sprache (einschl. Kodierleitfäden). Für die Verwendung in weiteren Studien werden die Fragen zur Person ebenso dokumentiert wie die Fragen zu den Überzeugungen und Lerngelegenheiten der angehenden Lehrkräfte sowie der Lehrerausbildenden. Die Skalendokumentation stellt so auch ein unverzichtbares Hilfsmittel dar, um mit den kürzlich freigegebenen TEDS-M-Datensätzen Sekundäranalysen durchführen zu können. Darüber hinaus können der Skalendokumentation die wichtigsten Kennwerte zu den TEDS-M-Ergebnissen entnommen werden: Häufigkeiten, Mittelwerte, Standardfehler, verschiedene Verteilungsmaße und die Anteile fehlender Werte.

Diese Ernährung geht zu Herzen! "Herzerkrankungen sind vermeidbar. Und wer bereits darunter leidet, kann ihr Fortschreiten stoppen und die heimtückischen Folgen rückgängig machen. Der Schlüssel zum Erfolg liegt in der Ernährung." Caldwell B. Esselstyn war Olympiasieger im Achter, erfolgreicher Chirurg und anerkannter Präventivmediziner - vor allem aber ist er ein Pionier. Sein revolutionäres Herz-Ernährungsprogramm - rein pflanzlich, ohne Fette, vegan - hat seine Wirksamkeit in über zwei Jahrzehnten und vielen Studien bewiesen. Die Teilnehmer seiner ersten Studie sind auch heute - 20 Jahre später! - trotz schlechter Prognosen immer noch frei von Beschwerden. Esselstyns Botschaft ist dabei so einfach wie radikal: Wer anders isst, erkrankt erst gar nicht am Herzen. Und wer seine Ernährung nach einem Herzinfarkt umstellt, hat beste Chancen, ohne Medikamente und ohne Operation ein gutes, gesundes Leben zu führen. Probieren Sie es aus - und gewinnen Sie so Lebensqualität und Wohlbefinden zurück.
