This is the first book to provide a molecular level explanation of how the senses work, linking molecular biology with sensory physiology to deduce the molecular mechanism of a key step in sensory signal generation. The editors have assembled expert authors from all fields of sensory physiology for an authoritative overview of the mechanisms of sensory signal transduction in both animals and plants. They systematically cover phototransduction, chemosensory transduction, mechanotransduction, temperature and pain perception, as well as specialized receptors for electrical and magnetic signals. Required reading for biologists, physiologists and medical researchers with an interest in sensory physiology.

This book focuses attention on groups of performing people that are unique aesthetic objects, the focus of an artist’s vision, but at the same time a collective being; a singular, whole mass that exists and behaves like an individual entity. This text explores this unique experience, which is far from rare or special. Indeed, it is pervasive, ubiquitous and has, since the dawn of performance, been with us. Surveying installation art from Vanessa Beecroft & Kanye West, Greek tragedy, back-up dancing groups and even the mass dance of clubbing crowds, this text examines and names this phenomenon: Aesthetic Collectives. Drawing on a range of methods of investigation spanning performance studies, acting theory, studies of atmosphere and affect and sociology it presents an intervention in the literature for something that has long deserved its own attention. This book will be of great interest to scholars, students and practitioners in performance studies, theatre, live art, sociology (particularly of groups and subcultures), cultural studies and cultural geography.

Although multiple sclerosis and other disorders of myelin formation and repair are most commonly associated with adults, they can also occur in infants, children and adolescents. Up to 5 percent of those with MS experience symptoms before the age of 18, and the number of cases diagnosed is rising. There is a lack of awareness about these diseases in childhood, however, even amongst pediatric neurologists and MS specialists. Demyelinating Disorders of the Central Nervous System in Childhood provides comprehensive coverage of these diseases, highlighting throughout the differences between management in childhood and in adults. With sections dedicated to the diagnosis, course, treatment and biology of pediatric MS, detailed chapters on other childhood demyelinating diseases, including acute disseminated encephomyelitis, optic neuritis, acute complete transverse myelitis and neuromyelitis optica, are also provided. Essential reading for pediatric neurologists and MS specialists, this book will also be valuable reading for adult neurologists and pediatricians.

Preface “The deaf listens to words of the mute; For only the soul can underastand the unsaid and the unheard words. People were divided into seventy-two languages and borders arose.” These lines belong to a Turkish thinker who lived in the 13th century. UNESCO declared 2021 as ‘The Year of Yunus Emre’ for the 700th anniversary of his death. In this book, we have also a short story dedicated to Yunus Emre. The teachers and students collaborating to make real a mutual dream discovered the wordless language stronger than any borders. We have a mutual dream with the young authors from seven different countries: to create a multilingual book. We published our first book last year on 23rd April 2020. Printed books were delivered to the young authors studying in partner schools. In the second year of our project, we created short stories with children from Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Croatia, Poland, Romania and Türkiye. Our students wrote many short stories and 65 of them were selected to be published in this book. We created an audiobook library with that stories. All the stories were narrated in their mother tongues, and we add English audio for selected stories. Also, stories are illustrated by the students from different countries. We also have a collaborative story this year, each part of the story was written by eTwinners studying in different schools. It consists of 13 parts. Nihal, the main character, needs to find an extinct plant, but it’s harder for her to find someone to rely on. We travelled with her in different countries and times to learn more about her adventure. It took seven months to complete that collaborative story. We used English as a common language during the meetings, but we created opportunities for our students to use their mother tongues too. We experienced multilingualism with our students and parents, they become familiar with different languages and cultures. Through our language-friendly project, we want to encourage students to develop an interest in different languages and cultures by welcoming and valuing all languages spoken. By creating a story, a child can channel their emotions and decide on how to behave in challenging situations they might encounter. While creating a story, the author shows empathy with the characters, expresses different emotions experienced by characters, or overcomes a difficult situation that a character encountered. This may help a child to express how they feel and understand how others feel. Storytelling is a way of self-discovery and self-expression, their feelings can be demonstrated throughout the child’s words. Creating a story can also develop language skills. The mother tongue education is a raison d’être for the schools. Because when learners develop their mother tongue, they are simultaneously fostering a whole host of other essential skills, such as critical thinking and literacy skills. Children with a strong mother tongue can easily pick up a second language and can transfer these skills to a second language. These children often display a deeper understanding of themselves and their environment. That affects every aspect of their lives, including their academic achievement. It has become a requirement to have language skills in addition to being a specialist within a particular field. I’d like to thank the teachers of Ali Tekinsoy Secondary School and my distinguished colleagues from partner schools for encouraging and inspiring their students to contribute to our second multilingual book named “Stories of Lights in the Sky-2”. More than a hundred students built this book with their words, lines and voices. They were brave enough to represent their schools by sending their stories to a book that has been read in more than fifty countries. We wish the best for them and hear their names again even years afters. Ahmet ARSLAN Editor Önsöz "Dilsizler haberini, kulaksız dinleyesi Dilsiz kulaksız sözün, can gerek anlayası Yetmiş iki dil saçtı, araya sınır düştü” Bu dizeler 13. yüzyılda yaşayan bir Türk düşünürüne aittir. UNESCO, 2021 yılını ölümünün 700. yıldönümü anısına ’Yunus Emre Yılı' olarak ilan etti. Bu kitapta Yunus Emre'ye adanmış bir kısa öykümüz de var. Şiirdeki gibi ortak hayalimiz için birlikte çalıştığımız öğretmen ve öğrencilerle, aradaki sınırları kaldıracak güçlü bir dil inşa ettik. Yedi farklı ülkeden genç yazarlarla paylaştığımız bir hayalimiz vardı; çok dilli bir kitap oluşturmak. İlk kitabımızı geçen yıl 23 Nisan'da yayımladık ve farklı ülkelerdeki genç yazarlarımıza basılı kitaplarını ulaştırdık. Projemizin ikinci yılında İrlanda, Portekiz, İspanya, Hırvatistan, Polonya, Romanya ve Türkiye'den çocuklarla kısa öyküler oluşturduk. Öğrencilerimiz birçok kısa öykü yazdılar ve 65 kısa öykü bu kitapta yayınlanmak üzere seçildi. Bu öykülerle faklı dillere öğrencilerimizin aşina olmasını sağlayacak bir sesli kitap kütüphanesi oluşturduk. Tüm öyküler ana dillerinde seslendirildi ve seçilen bazı öyküler için İngilizce seslendirme de ekledik. Ayrıca, öyküler farklı ülkelerdeki öğrenciler tarafından resmedildi. Proje boyunca etkileşimi artırmak adına mümkün olduğunca görevleri çapraz olarak dağıttık. Bu yıl geçen yıldan farklı olarak işbirlikçi bir öykümüz de var, öykünün her bölümü farklı okullarda okuyan öğrencilerce yazıldı. Bu öykü 13 bölümden oluşmaktadır. Öyküde kahramanımız Nihal, soyu tükenmiş bir bitkiyi bulmak için bir maceraya atılıyor, ancak güvenecek birini bulmak onun için daha zor. Macerasının devamını öğrenmek için birlikte farklı ülke ve zamanlarda yolculuk yaptık. 7 ayda yazılan öykümüzü beğenerek okuyacağınızı düşünüyorum. Bunun yanında öğrenci ve öğrenciler birçok toplantı yaptık, İngilizceyi ortak bir dil olarak kullandığımız toplantılarda öğrencilerimizin anadillerini de birbirinden öğrenmeleri için fırsatlar yarattık. Öğrencilerimiz ve velilerimiz çok dilliliği tecrübe etti, farklı dil ve kültürlere aşina oldular. Dil dostu projemizle, konuşulan tüm dilleri memnuniyetle karşılıyor ve değer vererek öğrencilerimizi farklı dillere ve kültürlere ilgi duymaya teşvik etmek istiyoruz. Kurgu oluşturmak çocuğun duygularını yönetebilmesine ve karşılaşabileceği zorlu durumlarda nasıl davranacağına karar verebilmesine olanak sağlar. Bir öykü oluştururken, yazar karakterleriyle empati kurar, karakterlerin yaşadığı farklı duyguları okuyucuya aktarır veya bir karakterin karşılaştığı zor bir durumun üstesinden birlikte gelir. Bu, bir çocuğun nasıl hissettiğini ifade etmesine ve başkalarının nasıl hissettiğini anlamasına yardımcı olabilecek bir çalışmadır. Öykü anlatımı, kendini keşfetme ve ifade etmenin emin bir yoludur, çocukların iç dünyası kelimeleri vasıtasıyla ortaya dökülür. Bir öykü kurgulamak dil becerilerini de geliştirebilir. Ana dil eğitimi okulların var oluş sebebidir. Çünkü öğrenciler anadillerini geliştirdiklerinde, aynı anda eleştirel düşünme ve okuryazarlık becerileri gibi bir dizi diğer temel becerileri geliştirirler. Güçlü bir ana dili olan çocuklar kolayca ikinci bir dil edinebilir ve bu becerileri ikinci bir dile aktarabilirler. Bu çocuklar genellikle kendileri ve çevreleri hakkında daha derin bir algılama düzeyine ulaşabilirler. Bu, akademik başarıları da dahil olmak üzere hayatlarının her yönünü etkiler. Belirli bir alanda uzman olmanın yanı sıra dil becerilerine sahip olmak bir gereklilik haline gelmiştir. Ali Tekinsoy Ortaokulu öğretmenlerine ve ortak okullardan seçkin meslektaşlarıma, öğrencilerini “Gökyüzündeki Işıkların Öyküsü-2” adlı ikinci çok dilli kitabımıza öğrencilerimizi katkıda bulunmaya teşvik ettikleri ve ilham verdikleri için teşekkür ediyorum. Yüzden fazla öğrenci bu kitabı kelimeleri, çizgileri ve sesleri ile inşa etti. Okullarını temsil etme özgüvenine sahip olan öğrencilerimiz, öykülerini elliden fazla ülkede okunan bir kitaba gönderdiler. Onların gelecekleri için en güzelini diliyoruz ve yıllar sonra isimlerini tekrar duymayı umut ediyoruz. Ahmet ARSLAN Editör 19.05.2021

Mature sciences have been long been characterized in terms of the “successfulness”, “reliability” or “trustworthiness” of their theoretical, experimental or technical accomplishments. Today many philosophers of science talk of “robustness”, often without specifying in a precise way the meaning of this term. This lack of clarity is the cause of frequent misunderstandings, since all these notions, and that of robustness in particular, are connected to fundamental issues, which concern nothing less than the very nature of science and its specificity with respect to other human practices, the nature of rationality and of scientific progress; and science’s claim to be a truth-conducive activity. This book offers for the first time a comprehensive analysis of the problem of robustness, and in general, that of the reliability of science, based on several detailed case studies and on philosophical essays inspired by the so-called practical turn in philosophy of science.

A woman has invited 25 women and 25 men to come and listen to her talk about her book and ask them whether or not to publish it. In a small square room, she finds 23 men have arrived. She stays outside the room and speaks to them telepathically about relationships, honouring the female principle and the meaning of life. What does the story of the Garden of Eden mean? Later she comes into the room and educates them about the role of women and raising the men’s consciousness. She embodies light and takes them into another mental realm. She tests their ideas, surprises and shocks them to help them evolve. One of them finds that the book on the lectern is blank. In the end we realize she hasn’t written a book, but lived it. Maghzi states: This book is one woman's vision which has been reduced to a readable form. This book is about a woman who raises her voice on behalf of those women who have suffered through the centuries! This book is about cutting selfish self's rough and uneven edges in order to become wiser and smarter to circle the wiser and smarter beloved!

Algebra, with Arithmetic and Mensuration, from the Sanskrit of Brahmagupta and Bhaskara was one of the earliest fruits of the European encounter with the scientific heritage of India. Colebrooke's work first appeared in 1817 and remains useful even today. This work contains English translations of two classics of Indian mathematics, namely Bhaskara's Lilavati and Bijaganita. These are supplemented by the twelfth and eighteenth chapters of Brahmagupta's Brahmasphutasiddhanta. These translations are enriched by copious extracts from various commentaries by Gangadhara, Suryadasa, Ganesa and Rama-krsna on the Lilavati; by Krsna Daivajna and Ramakrsna on the Bijaganita. He also made use of the Persian translations of the mathematical treatises. 'The preface seeks to situate Indian Algebra in the context of development in other parts of the world.

CHERISHED MEMORIES takes a memorable journey back to New Orleans of the 1950s. Professor Beverly Jacques Anderson shares stories from her childhood and from her elementary school classmates, providing a fascinating look at the experience of growing up in the Creole culture of the Seventh Ward of New Orleans. This culture indelibly shaped the character, personality, and aspirations of Anderson and her elementary school classmates, many of whom became hard working, family-oriented, service–oriented, productive, self-assured citizens. Creole culture in the Seventh Ward was rooted in close family ties, hard work, creativity, high expectations, independence, the Golden Rule, Catholicism, shared language/manner of speaking, and a shared sense of belonging to a unique community. Teachers, parents, and principals—all African Americans—valued education and set high standards for student achievement. According to interviews with twelve of the author’s classmates, these beliefs, along with the unwavering support of parents and teachers, helped to produce competitive individuals in all walks of life. The Creole culture was also rooted in racial, ethnic, and religious segregation that affected individuals in surprising ways. Anderson also examines the history of public and Catholic education for children of color in the Seventh Ward of New Orleans and addresses the impact of the school on the community and vice versa. Explore this fascinating community and its educational history with Cherished Memories.
