Measurement and Modeling of Silicon Heterostructure Devices When you see a nicely presented set of data, the natural response is: “How did they do that; what tricks did they use; and how can I do that for myself?” Alas, usually, you must simply keep wondering, since such tricks-of- the-trade are usually held close to the vest and rarely divulged. Shamefully ignored in the technical literature,... Heaven Is Empty: A Cross-Cultural Approach to
In the past few decades, discussions on the role of religion in shaping the
interconnections of politics, society, and culture have acquired a particular
urgency. Since the end of the Cold War, after 9/11, and even more so with
the surge of IS, religion has come to occupy a central position in discourses
