A comprehensive guide to computer assisted exercises <p> Readers can turn to this indispensable reference guide for comprehensive and lucid coverage of the operational, technical, and organizational knowledge needed to harness successful and constructive computer assisted exercises (CAX) and war games. It is geared also toward large civilian organizations that are looking to teach and test their strategies and procedures without the added cost of manpower. Divided into two clear parts, the book covers: <ul> <li> <p> Fundamentals and Theory—conflict and warfare; probability and statistics; simulation; distributed simulation; and experimentation and analysis <li> <p> Combat Modeling, Computer Assisted Exercises, and Practice—CAX architectures; CAX process; combat modeling; CAX support tools; communications/information system issues, technical risks, and risk miti-gation; and exercise centers and facilities </ul> <p> Computer Assisted Exercises and Training: A Reference Guide is indispensable reading for research engineers, computer scientists, software engineers working with modeling and simulation, homeland security specialists, staff in simulation training centers, military strategists and commanders, and many others.

Making your own shampoos is not a new idea, in fact, it has been done by women and homemakers for thousands of years, before today's mass produced chemical based shampoos became available. A revival of interest in green living and healthy alternative products over the last few years has prompted a desire in many people to make their own shampoos and conditioners. The two biggest benefits of doing this is because of the huge savings that can be made by doing so and also to escape the horrific chemicals almost all commercial shampoos, conditioners and body products in general contain. The last chapter of this book details some of the harmful chemicals contained in many shampoos that should be avoided.
Introduction to Computer Science Using Python: A Computational Problem-Solving Focus,recommended by Guido van Rossum, the creator of Python (?This is not your average Python book?I think this book is a great text for anyone teaching CS1?). With a focus on computational problem solving from Chapter 1, this text provides numerous hands-on exercises and examples, each chapter ending with a significant-size program demonstrating the step-by-step process of program development, testing, and debugging. A final chapter includes the history of computing, starting with Charles Babbage, containing over 65 historical images. An end-of-book Python 3 Programmers? Reference is also included for quick lookup of Python details. Extensive instructor materials are provided for those adopting for classroom use, including an instructors? manual, over 1,000 well-developed slides covering all fundamental topics of each chapter, source code, and test bank.Â
