Rotating machinery (eg pumps, motors, compressors) is normally manufactured to precise measurements but there comes a point when the costs of manufacture mean that further precision is not cost-effective and thus any slight imbalance inherent in the machine will need to be attended to after manufacture. When such machinery is in operation, often at very high speeds of thousands of revs per minute, any imbalance will set up vibration and often noise. In addition, such imbalance will cause extra wear and loss of efficiency in the machine. The answer is to balance the affected parts of the machine so that it operates smoothly and efficiently. This book is a practical account of such balancing techniques e.g how to balance a rotor, how to set up and verify performance of a balancing machine, and procedures for on-site balancing. In addition, other common causes of vibration will be covered e.g. misalignment, bad bearings and looseness. This book is the distillation of a successful course run by the author and developed over 20 years. University engineering departments do not teach balancing techniques beyond the very basic, and there is a need for educators and engineers to have a practical book available on the topic. · A practical book which will help the reader understand the importance of balance in today's high technology world · Outlines the history of dynamic balancing and other vibration reduction techniques · Profusely illustrated throughout

The aim of this study is to investigate the ways piano teachers can use improvisation to enrich learning in the studio lesson context. Using action research, the findings from this study revealed innovative pedagogical approaches that can contribute to community piano pedagogues' teaching toolkits. Improvisation proved to be a powerful mechanism for transformative learning, enhancing musical identity, motivation, knowledge, and ability, through incentivising learning. However, improvisation itself did not achieve the outcomes for students. Pedagogue expertise in balancing student and teacher centered learning through a range of teaching and learning strategies proved pivotal to meaningful learning in this research. Finally, action research was an effective research method, allowing the student voice to be heard, while bridging the gap between academic theory and actual practice.

If a fundamental goal of schooling is to prepare young people for the unknowable future, why do we assign students so many clearly defined tasks with predetermined solutions? According to educator and creativity expert Ronald A. Beghetto, the best way to unleash students' problem solving and creativity—and thus prepare them to face real-world problems—is to incorporate complex challenges that teach students to respond productively to uncertainty. In this thought-provoking book, Beghetto explains How to foster "possibility thinking" to help students open up their thinking in creative, sometimes counterintuitive ways. The process of lesson unplanning, a way of transforming existing lessons, activities, and assignments into more complex classroom challenges. Four basic action principles that teachers and students can use to design and solve complex challenges both inside and outside the classroom. The steps for creating legacy challenges, which require students to identify a problem, develop a solution, and ensure that their work makes a lasting contribution. With planning forms and detailed sample activities, this practical guide will enable teachers at every grade level to design a full range of challenges in any subject area. Invite uncertainty into your classroom—and discover what your students are capable of.

From youth culture to adolescent sexuality to the consumer purchasing power of children en masse, studies are flourishing. Yet doing research on this unquestionably more vulnerable—whether five or fifteen—population also poses a unique set of challenges and dilemmas for researchers. How should a six-year-old be approached for an interview? What questions and topics are appropriate for twelve year olds? Do parents need to give their approval for all studies? In Representing Youth, Amy L. Best has assembled an important group of essays from some of today’s top scholars on the subject of youth that address these concerns head on, providing scholars with thoughtful and often practical answers to their many methodological concerns. These original essays range from how to conduct research on youth in ways that can be empowering for them, to issues of writing and representation, to respecting boundaries and to dealing with issues of risk and responsibility to those interviewed. For anyone doing research or working with children and young adults, Representing Youth offers an indispensable guide to many of the unique dilemmas that research with kids entails. Contributors include: Amy L. Best, Sari Knopp Biklen, Elizabeth Chin, Susan Driver, Marc Flacks, Kathryn Gold Hadley, Madeline Leonard, C.J.

Een absolute aanrader voor moderne bedrijven die vooruit willen!;;;Innoveren kan op duizend en één manieren. De kunst is om op zoek te gaan naar uw eigen stijl en uw eigen 'road to innovation' die de balans houdt tussen creativiteit en discipline;;;De verschillende niveaus van innovatie op een rijtje: het team en de mensen, projecten, business units, ondernemingen en ecosystemen;;;Het geheel is een overzicht van een reeks inspirerende innovatiestrategieën, maar de hoofdstukken kunnen ook perfect apart gelezen worden Innovations are everywhere - and they matter. They matter because they change our lives, for better or worse, and because they are the source of long-term growth. But is innovation always the best policy? Is 'now' necessarily the best time to innovate? And how exactly should we go about it? This book seeks to provide the answers to some of these questions. It is not a detailed manual for innovation, since experience suggests that there is no such thing as a simple set of successful innovation recipes, which work at all times and in all places. For this reason, the book - written for practising managers and students of company-level innovation- uses a case-based methodology from which readers can learn practical lessons. At the same time it provides examples of creative approaches followed by less publicly well-known, high-impact SME innovators, or by leading well-established firms applying less known, high-impact innovation strategies. It shows how innovators as diverse as Bongo, GreenPan, Studio 100, Cronos, Belgacom Mobile, Arteconomy, QOD, Sigasi, VIB, Janssen Pharmaceutica, and Alcatel-Lucent - companies which range from big to small, high-tech to low-tech, new to old, product-based to service-based, well known to less well known - have succeeded in completing their innovation journey. The cases discuss topics as varied as creativity, growth, product leadership, business model change, as well as finance and commercialisation. There are many possible roads to innovation. Successful innovation means defining your own road. The purpose of this book is to help you plan your journey along your own particular route. www.thebalancingactofinnovation.com

‘Re-balancing China’ addresses three key sets of issues in China’s political economy. Part One provides an analysis of the profound effect of the global financial crisis upon China’s economy, as well as the positive impact of the massive rescue package that was implemented in response to the crisis. Part Two focuses on the challenge of globalization for China’s industrial policy. After more than two decades of industrial policy, China still has a negligible number of large firms that are competitive in global markets. China’s experience presents a fundamental challenge to traditional concepts of industrial policy and development. Part Three examines China’s international relations – in particular, its relationship with the US and the interactions between the two countries in the East and South China Seas.
