This book gives authoritative answers for the fi rst time ever: • Psychiatric analysis of Marilyn’s 16 personality and mental illnesses • The ways she struggled with mental illness to survive and excel as an actress • How her mental disorders played into the hands of incompetent doctors • How the treating psychoanalyst’s mental illness led to her death • Who the killer was and why he did it

Structures and Architecture

Release Date: 2016-10-14
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Although the disciplines of architecture and structural engineering have both experienced their own historical development, their interaction has resulted in many fascinating and delightful structures. To take this interaction to a higher level, there is a need to stimulate the inventive and creative design of architectural structures and to persuade architects and structural engineers to further collaborate in this process, exploiting together new concepts, applications and challenges. This set of book of abstracts and full paper searchable CD-ROM presents selected papers presented at the 3rd International Conference on Structures and Architecture Conference (ICSA2016), organized by the School of Architecture of the University of Minho, Guimarães, Portugal (July 2016), to promote the synergy in the collaboration between the disciplines of architecture and structural engineering. The set addresses all major aspects of structures and architecture, including building envelopes, comprehension of complex forms, computer and experimental methods, concrete and masonry structures, educating architects and structural engineers, emerging technologies, glass structures, innovative architectural and structural design, lightweight and membrane structures, special structures, steel and composite structures, the borderline between architecture and structural engineering, the history of the relationship between architects and structural engineers, the tectonics of architectural solutions, the use of new materials, timber structures and more. The contributions on creative and scientific aspects of the conception and construction of structures, on advanced technologies and on complex architectural and structural applications represent a fine blend of scientific, technical and practical novelties in both fields. This set is intended for both researchers and practitioners, including architects, structural and construction engineers, builders and building consultants, constructors, material suppliers and product manufacturers, and other experts and professionals involved in the design and realization of architectural, structural and infrastructural projects.

Genre: Law

La nouvelle édition du Cours de droit hospitalier s'accompagne d'une refonte importante de l'ouvrage. Elle fait suite aux nombreuses évolutions qu'a récemment connues cette matière du droit de la santé. En premier lieu, le cours prend en compte l'impact des lois du 26 janvier 2016 de modernisation de notre système de santé et du 2 février 2016 créant de nouveaux droits pour les personnes en fin de vie. Parmi ses multiples dispositions, la première loi réforme l'organisation de notre système de santé, y promeut notamment la notion de parcours de santé, renforce la coopération des hôpitaux publics désormais réunis en groupements hospitaliers de territoire (GHT) et restaure un service public hospitalier. La seconde traduit l'évolution de notre droit sur la question difficile de la fin de vie. S'agissant des droits des malades, l'ouvrage mentionne également les dernières évolutions des textes et de la jurisprudence concernant l'information des personnes sur leur santé, la circulation des données de santé, le dossier médical, le principe du secret, le traitement des données personnelles par les nouvelles technologies. Les plus récentes réflexions portant sur la bioéthique sont exposées, notamment en matière de procréation médicalement assistée et de prélèvement d'organes. Enfin, dans le domaine de la responsabilité médicale, cette nouvelle édition intègre la création de l'action de groupe en santé et les décisions de jurisprudence nouvelles sur l'exercice médical en établissement de santé.
