Laser tracking system (LTS) is one of the most powerful measurement and tracking instruments, and it has been widely used in accurate target tracking and measurement process in commercial or military applications in recent years. However traditionally, most approaches on the LTS provided very little detailed and complete information on building, developing, testing and troubleshooting processes for the LTS. To fill this gap, this book provides very detailed descriptions and analyses, both theoretically and practically, on optical, echanical, electronic and computer control programs in how to build and implement a real LTS with a complete set of documents. Some novel approaches, such as self-calibration of tracking gimbals and fuzzy logic control, are also covered in the book. A technical manual that provides detailed practical designs and considerations is also included. With the help of this book, a college student, researcher and engineer can build a real LTS more easily and conveniently.

Despite dating from the 4th century BC, The Art of Rhetoric continues to be regarded by many as the single most important work on the art of persuasion. As democracy began emerging in 5th-century Athens, public speaking and debate became an increasingly important tool to garner influence in the assemblies, councils, and law courts of ancient Greece. In response to this, both politicians and ordinary citizens became desperate to learn greater skills in this area, as well as the philosophy behind it. This treatise was one of the first to provide just that, establishing methods and observations of informal reasoning and style, and has continued to be hugely influential on public speaking and philosophy today. Aristotle, the grandfather of philosophy, student of Plato, and teacher of Alexander the Great, was one of the first people to create a comprehensive system of philosophy, encompassing logic, morality, aesthetics, politics, ethics, and science. Although written over 2,000 years ago, The Art of Rhetoric remains a comprehensive introduction for philosophy students into the subject of rhetoric, as well as a useful manual for anyone today looking to improve their oratory skills of persuasion.
The slyly funny, sweetly moving memoir of an unconventional dad’s relationship with his equally offbeat son - complete with fast cars, tall tales, homemade explosives, and a whole lot of fun and trouble Misfit, truant, delinquent. John Robison was never a model child, and he wasn’t a model dad either. Diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome at the age of 40, he approached fatherhood as a series of logic puzzles and practical jokes. When his son, Cubby, asked, ´´Where did I come from?” John said he’d bought him at the Kid Store and that the salesman had cheated him by promising Cubby would ´´do all chores”. He read electrical engineering manuals to Cubby at bedtime. He told Cubby that wizards turned children into stone when they misbehaved. Still, John got the basics right. He made sure Cubby never drank diesel fuel at the automobile repair shop he owns. And he gave him a life of adventure: By the time Cubby was 10, he’d steered a Coast Guard cutter, driven a freight locomotive, and run an antique Rolls Royce into a fence. The one thing John couldn’t figure out was what to do when school authorities decided that Cubby was dumb and stubborn - the very same thing he had been told as a child. Did Cubby have Asperger’s too? The answer was unclear. One thing was clear, though: By the time he turned 17, Cubby had become a brilliant chemist - smart enough to make military-grade explosives and bring state and federal agents calling. Afterward, with Cubby facing up to 60 years in prison, both father and son were forced to take stock of their lives, finally coming to terms with being ´´on the spectrum” as both a challenge and a unique gift. By turns tender, suspenseful, and hilarious, this is more than just the story of raising Cubby. It’s the story of a father and son who grow up together. 1. Language: English.

Practically Radical is a manifesto for change and a manual for making it happen in an era when change is the name of the game. Businesspeople everywhere are engaging in a dramatic ´´rethink´´ of how they lead, work, and get results. In an age of fierce competition and stubborn recession, the status quo just doesn´t cut it. But how do you break new ground when there is so much pressure to do things the same way as everyone else? Using his years of experience and thought leadership in the business world, the cofounder and founding editor of one of the world´s most admired business magazines, Fast Company, offers radical ideas and practical advice to help you fix what´s wrong with your organization, launch new initiatives with the best chance to succeed, and rethink the logic of leadership itself. Practically Radical goes deep inside twenty-five for-profit companies and nonprofit organizations to find out how they´ve made remarkable strides in tough circumstances. They include IBM, Zappos, Swatch, the Girl Scouts, Interpol, big-city hospitals, fast-growing banks, and high-flying airlines. These organizations have answered the make-or-break questions facing leaders in every field: Do you see opportunities the competition doesn´t see? The most successful organizations embrace one-of-a-kind ideas in a world filled with me-too thinking. Do you have new ideas about where to look for new ideas? Practices that are routine in one field can be revolutionary when they migrate to another field. Are you the most of anything? Companies used to be comfortable in the middle of the road. Today, the middle of the road is the road to ruin. Are you getting the best contributions from the most people? It may be lonely at the top, but change is not a game best played by loners. 1.
