DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, bestselling author of Peace is Every Step and one of the most respected and celebrated religious leaders in the world, delivers a powerful path to happiness through mastering life's most important skill. How do we say what we mean in a way that the other person can really hear? How can we listen with compassion and understanding? Communication fuels the ties that bind, whether in relationships, business, or everyday interactions. Most of us, however, have never been taught the fundamental skills of communication—or how to best represent our true selves. Effective communication is as important to our well-being and happiness as the food we put into our bodies. It can be either healthy (and nourishing) or toxic (and destructive). In this precise and practical guide, Zen master and Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh reveals how to listen mindfully and express your fullest and most authentic self. With examples from his work with couples, families, and international conflicts, The Art of Communicating helps us move beyond the perils and frustrations of misrepresentation and misunderstanding to learn the listening and speaking skills that will forever change how we experience and impact the world.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Science communication, as a multidisciplinary field, has developed remarkably in recent years. It is now a distinct and exceedingly dynamic science that melds theoretical approaches with practical experience. Formerly well-established theoretical models now seem out of step with the social reality of the sciences, and the previously clear-cut delineations and interacting domains between cultural fields have blurred. Communicating Science in Social Contexts examines that shift, which itself depicts a profound recomposition of knowledge fields, activities and dissemination practices, and the value accorded to science and technology. Communicating Science in Social Contexts is the product of long-term effort that would not have been possible without the research and expertise of the Public Communication of Science and Technology (PCST) Network and the editors. For nearly 20 years, this informal, international network has been organizing events and forums for discussion of the public communication of science.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Science and technology are embedded in virtually every aspect of modern life. As a result, people face an increasing need to integrate information from science with their personal values and other considerations as they make important life decisions about medical care, the safety of foods, what to do about climate change, and many other issues. Communicating science effectively, however, is a complex task and an acquired skill. Moreover, the approaches to communicating science that will be most effective for specific audiences and circumstances are not obvious. Fortunately, there is an expanding science base from diverse disciplines that can support science communicators in making these determinations. Communicating Science Effectively offers a research agenda for science communicators and researchers seeking to apply this research and fill gaps in knowledge about how to communicate effectively about science, focusing in particular on issues that are contentious in the public sphere. To inform this research agenda, this publication identifies important influences â€" psychological, economic, political, social, cultural, and media-related â€" on how science related to such issues is understood, perceived, and used.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

In this book, W. John Smith enlarges ethology's perspective on communication and takes it in new directions. Traditionally, ethological analysis has focused on the motivational states of displaying animals: What makes the bird sing, the cat lash its tail, the bee dance? The Behavior of Communicating emphasizes messages. It seeks to answer questions about the information shared by animals through their displays: What information is made available to a bird by its neighbor's song, to a cat by its opponent's gesture, to a bee by its hivemate's dancing? What information is extracted from sources contextual to these displays? How are the responses to displays adaptive for recipients and senders? What evolutionary processes and constraints underlie observed patterns of animal communication? Smith's approach is deeply rooted in the ethological tradition of naturalistic observations. Detailed analysis of observed displays and display repertoires illuminates the theoretical discussion that forms the core of the book. A taxonomy and interpretative analysis of messages made available through formalized display behavior are also developed. Smith shows that virtually all subhuman animal displays may be interpreted as transmitting messages about the communicator--not the environment--and, more specifically, that messages indicate the kinds of behavior the displaying animal may choose to perform. The most widespread behavioral messages are surprisingly general, even banal, in character; yet they make public information that is not readily available from other sources and that would otherwise be essentially private to the communicator. Taken along with information from sources contextual to the displays, the messages made available may permit responses that are markedly specific. By taking advantage of contextual specificity, a species expands the capacity of its display behavior to be functional in numerous and diverse circumstances. After developing the concept of messages and discussing their forms, the responses made to them, and the functions engendered, Smith turns to the evolution of display behavior--the ways in which acts become specialized for communication and the nature of the evolutionary constraints affecting the ultimate forms of displays. He revises the traditional ethological concept of displays, and in a final chapter develops the further concept of formalized interactions. Here he extends the discussion to formal patterns of behavior that, unlike displays, are beyond the capabilities of individual performers. Human nonverbal communication, which is considered from time to time throughout the book, provides the richest examples of communication flexibly structured at this level of complexity.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Corporations large and small, political figures, artists, and organizations: all of them need public relations to make their products or services known, to stimulate interest in a brand name, or to build the right image. As a result, recognition of the importance of communications is steadily growing, and interest in working in the PR field is on the rise. But those who want to enter the profession can't forget that making a name for oneself takes skill, diplomacy, creativity, and well-focused training. In this lively guide, Tiziana Rocca, an undisputed public-relations leader, shares her approach and her vision for the profession. Rocca begins with a series of reflections on the nature and the goals of PR, then turns to an examination of key aspects of professionalism: service quality, relationships with clients, and the human values that must be reinforced on a day-to-day basis. A large section of the book is dedicated to issues related to marketing and publicity, to managing information, and to the profession's concrete aspects: the creation of successful events, the modern art of entertaining, practical work tools and strategies, and effective collaboration with coworkers and team members. Experience, ideas, guidelines, and tips: Rocca's guide is a decisive leg up for anyone who wants to stand out in the complex and diverse world of communications.

Language: en

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

This book asks and answers the question of what communication research and other social sciences can offer that will help the global community to address climate change by identifying the conditions that can persuade audiences and encourage collective action on climate. While scientists often expect that teaching people the scientific facts will change their minds about climate change, closer analysis suggests this is not always the case. Communication scholars are pursuing other ideas based on what we know about influence and persuasion, but this approach does not provide complete answers either. Some misconceptions can be corrected by education, and some messages will be more powerful than others. The advent of the Internet also makes vast stores of information readily available. But audiences still process this information through different filters, based on their own values and beliefs – including their understanding of how science works. In between momentous events, media coverage of climate tends to recede and individuals turn their attention back to their daily lives. Yet there is a path forward: Climate change is a social justice issue that no individual – and no nation – can solve on their own. A different sort of communication effort can help.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

This book gives a practical approach to modeling and analyzingcommunication protocols using UML 2. Network protocols are alwayspresented with a point of view focusing on partial mechanisms andstarting models. This book aims at giving the basis needed foranybody to model and validate their own protocols. It follows apractical approach and gives many examples for the description andanalysis of well known basic network mechanisms forprotocols. The book firstly shows how to describe and validate the mainprotocol issues (such as synchronization problems, client-serverinteractions, layer organization and behavior, etc.) in an easy andunderstandable way. To do so, the book considers and presents themain traditional network examples (e.g. unidirectional flows,full-duplex com-munication, error recovering, alternating bit).Finally, it presents the outputs resulting from a few simulationsof these UML models. Other books usually only focus either on teaching UML or onanalyzing network protocols, however this book will allow readersto model network protocols using a new perspective and integratingthese two views, so facilitating their comprehension anddevelopment. Any university student studying in the field of computing science,or those working in telecommunications, embedded systems ornetworking will find this book a very useful addition.
