The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software

Code

What do flashlights, the British invasion, black cats, and seesaws have to do with computers? In CODE, they show us the ingenious ways we manipulate language and invent new means of communicating with each other. And through CODE, we see how this ingenuity and our very human compulsion to communicate have driven the technological innovations of the past two centuries. Using everyday objects and familiar language systems such as Braille and Morse code, author Charles Petzold weaves an illuminating narrative for anyone who’s ever wondered about the secret inner life of computers and other smart machines. It’s a cleverly illustrated and eminently comprehensible story—and along the way, you’ll discover you’ve gained a real context for understanding today’s world of PCs, digital media, and the Internet. No matter what your level of technical savvy, CODE will charm you—and perhaps even awaken the technophile within.

Decoding the Ethics Code

A Practical Guide for Psychologists

Decoding the Ethics Code

Decoding the Ethics Code: A Practical Guide for Psychologists introduces psychologists to the 2002 American Psychological Association's Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct. The book helps psychologists apply the Ethics Code to the constantly changing scientific, professional, and legal realities of the discipline. Author Celia B. Fisher addresses the revised format, choice of wording, aspirational rationale, and enforceability of the code and puts these changes into practical perspective for psychologists. The book provides in-depth discussions of the foundation and application of each ethical standard to the broad spectrum of scientific, teaching, and professional roles of psychologists. This unique guide helps psychologists effectively use ethical principles and standards to morally conduct their work activities, avoid ethical violations, and, most importantly, preserve and protect the fundamental rights and welfare of those whom they serve.

Code of Practice for the Selection of Subcontractors

Code of Practice for the Selection of Subcontractors

This code of practice is one of a set of documents from the CIB aimed at improving the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of the construction industry. It should be used in conjunction with the other documents in the series. 1~ The good practice recommended should be observed in commercial relationships throughout the contractual chain and throughout the duration of a construction project. Subcontractors can be selected by competitive tendering, by negotiation or as a result of partnering or a joint venture arrangement. Competitive tendering is complex and requires everyone involved to follow a common set of procedures; inevitably it occupies the bulk of this code. In competitive tendering for small or simple works all the steps described are required but many may take place I formally, and these are indicated by dotted lines in the diagrams which accompany each section of the code. Negotiation, partnering or joint ventures should all be carried out in the same spirit of good practice although specific procedures will vary. For competitive tendering to be effective in providing good value for money it must be seen to be fair and the processes by which decisions are reached must be as open as possible. This applies to all forms of subcontractor selection.
