Recalibration:Fine-tuning how we view money and finances to achieve long-term happiness Bryant S. Bonner
The Netherlands is a small but highly densely populated country on the West coast of Europe. Having lost its colonial empire, it is devoid of much weight in foreign politics and the focus of Dutch politics over the last half century has therefore shifted to establishing and maintaining a Welfare State. In doing this, the Dutch frantically try to reconcile a competitive economy with a high degree of social protection. These efforts are made in a continuous process of corporatist bargaining between the Government and the social partners with a view to reaching agreements, often called the Poldermodel. It leads Dutch lawmakers to a never ending fine tuning of the laws of the Welfare State, also in the arena of labour law, in which often remarkable compromises are born, such as the concept of ´flexicurity´. All this made The Netherlands a kind of a ´social laboratory´, anxiously watched by numerous foreign observers, who - in evaluating its products - keep oscillating between ´the Dutch disease´ and ´the Dutch miracle´. This book gives an outline of the actual state of labour law and the laws governing its system of industrial relations in The Netherlands.
World´s only humbucker frame tunerFinally, even electric guitarists do not have to worry about forgetting or losing their tuning devices. A perk once reserved for certain acoustic guitars equipped with onboard tuners has now become available for electric guitars as well. Even as you play, you can now fine-tune the instrument with just one inconspicuous press of a button . . . and just like that, you’re done! The impressive advantages lie close at hand or, better put, within view. Shadow´s E-Tuner HB-T allows you to transform any humbucker electric guitar and turn it into an instrument with accurate onboard tuning. The Shadow SH E-Tuner HB-T sits inconspicuously inside a humbucker frame, can easily meet even the greatest of musical demands and yet remains affordable. The device never affects or reduces the value of an instrument’s essential sound. Neither do any fine adjustments made to pickup electronics get altered in any way. The Shadow SH E-Tuner HB simply – and in a way that goes beyond the instrument itself – rings true. Installation, as you might expect, is straightforward. As the SH E-Tuner HB-T replaces the original frame of your humbucker there is no woodworking required, and a prized instrument can at any time be restored to its original state. The E-Tuner is available in three versions: For curved-top guitars: SH HB-T CT (-B for black or -C for cream) For flat-top guitars: SH HB-FT (-B for black or -C for cream) For tremolo guitars: SH HB-T TR (-B for black or -C for cream) Wherever and whenever you need it, the Shadow SH E-Tuner HB is always ready. Whether on stage, backstage, at rehearsal, in the studio, while practicing at home or jamming with friends . . . finally, electric guitars can be tuned with both perfect accuracy and lightening fast speed. The Shadow SH E-Tuner HB responds quickly and precisely and – thanks to its chromatic functioning – allows for all conceivable alternate tunings, including open tunings. Its multicolored LEDs are unfailingly easy to read, even in very bright surroundings, and its operation – thanks to single-button turn-on and automatic shut-off – is entirely straightforward. In addition, there is little reason to worry about battery life: with a maximum power usage of 6mA, a single button cell lasts through roughly 2000 tunings of approximately one minute each. This battery is located in the electronics compartment of the guitar within a protective shell (included with the device); replacement of the battery, when necessary, is a snap and can be accomplished in practically no time at all.
Media Type : Book/CD SetLevel : BeginningMusical Genre : BluegrassNumber of pages : 152The idea here is to help coordinate the pickers so you all have solos to play and they can be played in the same key. What a concept - a Band in the Book. Within these pages you will find solos for the entire band: lead guitar, rhythm guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle and bass. The mandolin and fiddle share the same tunings so their solos are just written once for both. If you are just starting out and you are having difficulty-finding solos for your level - look no more. These solos are written for the beginner level student assuming you can already play a few simple solos or lead breaks. This series will help you to learn solos on multiple instruments, help organize ensemble play, help develop a steady sense of timing and give you hours of enjoyment as well.

Rare event probability (10 -4 and less) estimation has become a large area of research in the reliability engineering and system safety domains. A significant number of methods have been proposed to reduce the computation burden for the estimation of rare events from advanced sampling approaches to extreme value theory. However, it is often difficult in practice to determine which algorithm is the most adapted to a given problem. Estimation of Rare Event Probabilities in Complex Aerospace and Other Systems: A Practical Approach provides a broad up-to-date view of the current available techniques to estimate rare event probabilities described with a unified notation, a mathematical pseudocode to ease their potential implementation and finally a large spectrum of simulation results on academic and realistic use cases. Provides a broad overview of the practical approach of rare event methods. Includes algorithms that are applied to aerospace benchmark test cases Offers insight into practical tuning issues Dr. Jerome Morio is a research engineer at Onera, the French Aerospace Lab, based in the System Design and Performance Evaluation department. He obtained a Ph.D. degree in physics from the University Aix-Marseille Paul Cézanne (France) in 2007 and defended his habilitation to supervise research in 2013. He is also a lecturer at ISAE and ENAC in probability and statistics. His main research interests include rare event probability estimation, sensitivity analysis, and uncertainty management.
Fast auf den Tag genau zwei Jahre nach der Markteinführung der überaus erfolgreichen D7100 hat Nikon den Nachfolger D7200 vorgestellt. Das neue Modell baut auf dem bewährten Konzept auf und führt dieses weitgehend fort. Spektakuläre Neuerungen sind daher zwar nicht auszumachen, eine Justierung diverser Stellschrauben hingegen schon. Der bewährte 24-Megapixel-CMOS-Sensor, der für maximale Detailauflösung weiterhin ohne Tiefpassfilter verbaut wird, hat ein Tuning erfahren, das dessen Bildresultate bei hohen ISO-Empfindlichkeiten nochmals besser macht. Passend dazu hat Nikon der D7200 eine überarbeitete Version des Autofokus-Moduls namens ´´Multi-CAM 3500 II´´ spendiert; nach wie vor kommen satte 51 Fokusmessfelder mit 15 Kreuzsensoren zum Einsatz. Die markanteste Verbesserung gegenüber dem Vorgängermodell ist der erweiterte Messbereich, der nun bis minus drei Lichtwerte (-3 LW) hinabreicht und somit auf dem exzellenten Niveau der D750 liegt. Das Wi-Fi-Modul zur Fernsteuerung der Kamera per Smartphone ist bereits in die Kamera eingebaut und muss nicht mehr gesondert erworben werden. Auch das Kameramenü hat eine gründliche Überarbeitung erfahren; einige Menüpunkte wurden im Vergleich zum Vorgängermodell sinnvoll neu positioniert. Jedoch wollen die zahlreichen Möglichkeiten der Nikon zielsicher beherrscht werden. Fachautor Hessler, langjähriger Test & Technik-Chef einer großen deutschen Foto-Fachzeitschrift, leistet dabei wertvolle Hilfe. In angenehm zu lesendem Stil führt er den Leser an die Kamera heran. Der Autor arbeitet die Besonderheiten der Kamera heraus, führt ausführlich durch die verschiedenen Betriebsarten und weist den Weg zum besseren Fokussieren, Belichten und Blitzen. Eigene Kapitel zu Live View und Video, zum optimalen Weißabgleich, zur Fernsteuerung mit dem Smartphone, zu Picture Control sowie zu den Themen Zubehör, passende Objektive und nützliche Software runden den Inhalt des Buches ab. Jedes Kapitel reichert Hessler mit vielen wertvollen Tipps und Tricks aus seinem Erfahrungsschatz an. Zudem gelingt es dem Autor, seine Begeisterung für die D7200 auf den Leser zu übertragen, so dass dieser in relativ kurzer Zeit und mit großem Vergnügen das Maximum aus seiner Kamera herausholen kann AUSZUG AUS DEM INHALT: Die D7200 im Detail Objektivratgeber Zubehör zur D7200 Passende Systemblitze Drahtlose Blitzsteuerung Die ersten Fotos schießen Scene-Programme Klassische Aufnahmemodi Live View Effects Video Picture Control Wi-Fi Richtig Fokussieren Richtig Belichten Richtig Blitzen Optimaler Weißabgleich Software-Tipps
