      Serotonin : molecular biology, receptors and functional effects : 2nd Satellite meeting on serotonin : Papers.

      Summary
      • The Second IUPHAR Satellite Meeting on Serotonin was held under the auspices of the Serotonin Club in Basel, Switzerland in July 1990. The scope was wide, ranging from molecular biology through in vitro and in vivo pharmacology to new drug tools and their clinical signifi- cance. There were three invited review lectures, by J. M. Palacios, D. I. Wallis and A. Kaumann, and S. Peroutka gave the first Serotonin Club Irvine H. Page Lecture. The rest of the oral programme was put together by the Scientific Organizing Committee based on volunteered research contributions. The invited review lecturers, the platform speak- ers and selected poster contributors were invited to write up their contributions for inclusion in this volume. Most complied and this book is the result of their efforts. When instructing the authors prior to the meeting, we emphasized that selected new data should be put in the context of the literature findings. In this way we hoped to achieve topicality yet preserve the review perspective which facilitates its appreciation by the non-special- ist. It was truly a pleasure to read the interesting papers which resulted and to prepare them for publication. We believe they convey to a remarkable degree the spirit of what was generally felt to be a highly stimulating exchange of information on matters serotonergic which took place in Basel last July.

      Summary
      • Fans of Vicki Cobb's unique blend of humor, science, and hands-on activities will have tons of fun with How to Really Fool Yourself. Kids won't be able to believe their eyes--not to mention their ears, noses, hands, and tongues! Packed with all-new illustrations and a delightful new design, this book features over 70 activities to fool all five senses. Each illusion is followed by a fascinating "Why You're Fooled" section that explains the science and history behind the "magic." Illusions of touch, taste, hearing, smell, and sight include: the Incredible Shrinking Sugar Cube, Flavorless Coffee, Movie-Style Sound Effects, Making Circles from Straight Lines, and many more The hardcover edition of How to Really Fool Yourself has sold 90,000 copies A Main Selection of the Primary Teachers' Book Club
      • Review: "Interesting, informative, and fun."--School Library Journal "Clear and lively ... links the puzzles to scientific fact."--ALA Booklist "Simple and direct, suitably lighthearted... This unpretentious account might just win over a couple of investigators of the future!"--Scientific American
      • Review: Since Martin Gardner's Perplexing Puzzles and Tantalizing Teasers (1969), most optical illusion collections have seemed redundant. But Cobb expands the concept of illusions; discusses them in groups that make her collection more than just one trick after another; includes illusions to fool the senses of touch, taste, sound, and motion as well as ordinary optical ones; and introduces some real sanity-benders kids will want to try on their friends. When you are not discombobulating your senses to demonstrate some scientific principle, you can pick up a list of sound effects and how to create them, or try out Cobb's invitation to "be your own stroboscope," making horizontal bars seem to appear on a TV screen or a rotating black-and-white disc on a turntable seem to stop spinning. What you do is hum a note "around a bass A fiat." A guaranteed mind-spinner. (Kirkus Reviews)

      Summary
      • GET TO THE FUTURE FIRST! LEVERAGE STRATEGIC NOVELTY (SN) TO TRANSFORM AND DOMINATE YOUR MARKET * Become an "outlier organization": recognize huge opportunities in novelty, and act fast and first * Listen for the tremors already building beneath your markets * Learn from winning "outlier" business models, organizational forms, markets, products, and services Today, the companies that rise rapidly to dominance are the outliers. They're radically novel where it matters: whether in business models, products, services, or some other key driver of value. Strategic Innovation reveals how to think like these vanguard organizations-and become one of them. You'll discover how to borrow the lenses and insights of companies operating right at the edge of conventional industry dynamics and boundaries...where opportunities are underdefined, predictions unstable, and the greatest opportunities exist. Using linked case studies and a proven three-step methodology, the authors guide you through uncovering Strategic Novelty (SN) with explosive potential...executing quickly...and learning and tweaking relentlessly to amplify your impact. If you keep doing what everyone else is doing, you may succeed-but not greatly, and not for long. If you want to create, transform, and dominate your market, you need to think and act like an outlier. Learn how. Now. Before someone does it to you. Right now, all around you, there's an explosion of new business models, new product/service categories, and new organizational forms. It's a veritable Cambrian Explosion of business life, led by outlier organizations you've never even heard of. Many will remain practically invisible to the incumbents in their markets...until they suddenly explode into dominance. What do they share? A fundamental commitment to Strategic Novelty (SN). Now, in Strategic Innovation, leading innovation strategists Liisa V(TM)likangas and Michael Gibbert show you how to leverage SN to become your industry's winning disruptor. You'll master SN through case studies from leading outlier organizations in areas ranging from 3D printing to crowd financing and resource-constrained innovation. Each case is original, previously unpublished, and based at least in part on the authors' direct experiences. Through these cases, you'll explore how each company's story is playing out: sometimes in failure, but often in massive success. You'll discover why incumbents rarely notice outliers in time, and how to keep it from happening to you. Perhaps most valuable of all, the authors help you extrapolate the likely impact of any novelty, so you can tell the difference between promising opportunities and those destined to fail. The proven methodology for profiting from Strategic Novelty (SN) Three steps + powerful tools to: Identify the WOW What excites you? Unsettles you? What does that mean? What does it say about you? Execute the SO WHAT? Choose and apply the strategic ideas most likely to enrich your organization Amplify the OOMPH Experiment, learn, and lead to maximize the impact of novelty
      • Review: "This book makes an important contribution to new thinking about products and markets that do not yet exist. We know that strategies that worked in the previous industry transformation rarely work in the next one. This book shows the companies and strategies that will build the future." -Jouko Ahvenainen, Chairman and Founder, Grow VC Group "Anyone can spot a winner with hindsight. As readers of business literature we eagerly follow the mainstream in digesting retrospective tales of excellence from proven performers. This book attempts to beat the crowd in turning to accounts of promising outliers in the midst of white heat emergence where performance outcomes are still undefined. That's interesting! It is delivered through a varied set of rich cases, written from multiple vantage points with also external commentators. The prose that binds it all together is fresh, witty, and full of zest. Yeah! Wow! Oomph!" -Professor Arne Carlsen, BI Norwegian Business School "Getting past the conventional wisdom is critical and this important new work shows how to use strategic novelty to challenge your thinking." -Bill Guns, CEO, Strategic Business Insights "From Silicon Valley to Scandinavia and practically everywhere in between, Liisa V(TM)likangas is a pioneer in the realm of studying, supporting, and identifying early stage innovations across sectors. The collection of authors that she has gathered here represents an incredible cross-section of perspectives on innovation around the world, and offer an illuminating view into the frequently misunderstood world of innovations in both technology and social practice." -David Evan Harris, Research Director, Institute for the Future "Competitive environment is increasingly not only complicated but complex. Linear, accepted, strategies of the past, which might have worked in complicated only competition, no longer work. This book gives vanguard thoughts on how to build strategic novelty to paddle the chaotic flow of the new-complex-environment." -Jussi Jaakonaho, Software Integrity Group, Synopsys Inc.; Toolcrypt Group and Former Chief Advisor, Enterprise Risk and Security for Nokia. "This book reveals the importance of spotting outliers while their radically creative business models and practices represent opportunities, before they become mainstream when everyone, including your competitors, is copying them." -Soren Kaplan, best-selling author of Leapfrogging, and founder of InnovationPoint "An intriguing selection of companies that may help shape the future." -Roland Kupers, University of Oxford and co-author of Complexity and the Art of Public Policy "This book addresses an important topic-the study of outliers-that is long due." -Professor Arie Lewin, Duke University "Strategic Innovation is a thought-provoking book about the quiddity of outlier organizations. The authors have a razor-sharp eye for the hidden markers that reveal strategic novelty as it unfolds. In this book, the authors introduce a methodology that unravels the concept of prediction outliers: how uniquely different companies with unconventional business models have lingering, staggering, and industry-wide effects. As in her previous writings, Ms V(TM)likangas once again contributes a nuanced and insightful outlook for understanding effective business innovation." -Claudia Medina, Consultant in learning technologies "Learning from outliers is THE challenge of the 21st century. Not because today is more complex than yesterday or tomorrow, but because right now we want to embrace diversity, anchor resilience in diversification, and find ways to align our capabilities to our aspirations for freedom. As the authors of this important book argue, the capacity to appreciate strategic novelty requires sense making that goes beyond the search for averages and the aggregation of common denominator statistics that obscure and ignore outliers. Getting better at learning from outliers is essential if humanity wants to take advantage of the richness of complex emergence." -Riel Miller, former Head of Foresight, UNESCO "In a world of accelerating change and opportunity, innovation matters more than ever. Yet the greatest potential for disruption lies not in new products and services, but in models that challenge how business is done. That's why learning from outliers to build strategic novelty is the next big management methodology-and mindset." -Nancy R. Murphy, Director of Experience Design and Communications, Worldview Stanford "Strategic Innovation delivers on three important promises: a fresh view of innovation 'before' it is obvious, a deep focus on organizations and business model innovation as the key focus, and a series of actionable steps to identify and implement on such 'strategic novelty' in your firm or agency. Great insights, excellent and varied case examples, and realistic 'what to do now'." -Marc J Ventresca, Strategy and Innovation faculty, University of Oxford and Wolfson College "A refreshing new look at how you can learn from the outliers who are pushing envelope on new business models. Read this book and you will never look at strategy the same way again!" -Peter Williamson, Professor, International Management, University of Cambridge

      Summary
      • Some expedition members questioned Peary's decision to take a black man on the final leg of the journey. Others defended it, citing Henson's popularity with the Inuit, whose language and skills he'd mastered. Upon their return, Peary received wide recognition from the National Geographic Society and the U.S. government for his attainment of the Pole, but Henson was largely ignored, except in the Black community. In later years, Henson received much deserved acclaim for his twenty-three-year contribution to Peary's expeditions. This definitive 100th anniversary edition will be enhanced with material from The Explorer Club's archives, including reference to Henson's correspondence with the club and photographs of Henson ephemera. It also contains a list of Henson's honors and a bibliography of celebratory accounts of his achievements.
      • Review: "The fascinating and exciting diary of an extraordinary explorers." --"Commonweal" "An original document. . . . One of the giants of polar exploration, Henson had the graceful modesty of genuinely big men. . . . The world would know even more about him now if his commander, Peary, had been less an egotist and more generous in sharing credit for his discovery of the North Pole." --"Book World"

      Summary
      • The pragmatist philosopher Jane Addams (1860-1935) is celebrated as the founder of Hull House, the settlement house for disadvantaged people in Chicago, where for many years she put into practice her progressive ideas for social reform. Addams was also deeply involved in international peace efforts. Remaining a pacifist throughout World War I, she was a founder of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom and went on to receive the Nobel Peace Prize in 1931. Her books and essays on peace are frequently cited but long out of print and hard to obtain. Interest in Jane Addams is rapidly growing. As the American government withdraws from international treaties, her call for international law and cooperation has a new relevance. And in our increasingly dangerous world, her call for peace is being heard again. This volume contains the most complete collection ever made of Addam's essays, articles, and speeches on peace and international relations, written between 1899 and 1935.

      Summary
      • Environmentalists often predict an Apocalypse is coming: The earth will heat up like a greenhouse. We will run out of energy. Overpopulation will lead to starvation and war. Nuclear winter will kill all plants and animals. During the past fifty to one hundred years, Americans have heard many prophecies of doom, such as the Club of Rome report predicting the world economy would crash about the year 2020. These do not come as complete surprises without any warnings. Sometimes the United States simply ignores the threats, but other times it makes plans to prevent them. This provocative book asks whether American planning is different for dangers that are truly apocalyptic-ones that could end life on the planet or at least modern economic prosperity. This provocative book begins by asking whether American planning is different for dangers that are truly apocalyptic-ones that could end life on the planet or at least modern economic prosperity. It goes on to ask why Americans ignore so many problems like the greenhouse effect or an oil shortage or nuclear war, problems that have been forecast many times. Then when the United States does plan, why do those plans often go astray?
      • Review: "Davis has served in the US government and as a consultant on energy and environmental issues for some three decades. Picking up on America's love affair with apocalypse, inherited from the Puritans, he discusses four threats that could destroy the world as we know it: global climate change, nuclear war, over-population, and the energy crisis." - Reference & Research Book News "Davis provides a critical assessment of how Americans go about understanding environmental catastrophes, including the formulation of plans for averting or mitigating the expected outcomes. He examines the reason why Americans often ignore impending dangers, even apocalyptic ones based on rigorous scientific and mathematical analysis, and why government solutions and policies often fail to deal realistically with their potential consequences for future generations of people and ecosystems...This is an important book to read in order to learn how people, Americans in particular, go about framing or avoiding issues that have dire consequences for the quality of human life. Recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections." - Choice
