Features new analysis of Hector Zamora's oeuvre alongside a discussion of his topical, site-specific work created for the 2020 Roof Garden Commission at The Met The work of Mexican artist Hector Zamora engages with urban or built environments, both disrupting and rearticulating the viewer's interaction with the site. Lattice Detour, his most recent intervention, commissioned by The Met for its Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden, is fabricated from terracotta bricks produced in Mexico and transported to New York. This compact volume, the first book in English on Zamora, presents images and analysis of the new artwork, setting its creation in the context of his past work. An interview with Zamora sheds further light on his formation as an artist, his process, and his inspirations.
The original and creative universe of the artist and designer Candela Cort is visually summarized in the pages of this book. A sample of his hats, necklaces, headdresses, collages, bracelets and collars that she builds from x-rays, corrugated cardboard, brass wire, ribbons, elastic rubber, plastic or buttons. Every object is unique and inspired by everyday life. All in them is exceptional, daring and, at the same time, subtle, delicate and ethereal.
Spanish time travel thriller starring Karra Elejalde as Hector, a married middle-aged man who ventures to investigate when he sees a naked woman in the woods near his new home while looking through his binoculars.

However, it soon transpires that there's no way out as Hector realises he has become an accomplice in a crime of his own making...
The work of Elinor and Vincent Ostrom represents a distinctive contribution to the study of political economy, public policy and administration, collective action, and governance theory. Efforts to present a comprehensive overview of the Bloomington School that grew around the Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis (now renamed the Ostrom Workshop), which they founded more than 40 years ago, received new impetus with the award of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Science to Elinor Ostrom in 2009. Since then, renewed attempts have been made to map the Ostroms' contributions to theories of polycentric governance and collective action, and to multi-methods and comparative institutional analysis of ways of managing social and ecological systems, common pool resources, public economies, and metropolitan reform. The open-ended and multiform nature of the Ostroms' research program defies a single comprehensive overview; yet, it is a stimulus towards both creativity and disciplinary cross-fertilization in social science research. What sets this volume apart is that it brings together theory and practice, models and work on the ground, design and creativity, empirics and norms, to outline the significance of the Ostroms' research program for the future. Each contribution to the volume takes the Ostromian perspective as the point of departure, amplifies it and explores the ground for future work by engaging with other approaches and areas of research with which the Bloomington School has some affinities. This way of testing and extending the ideas and methods of the Ostroms is particularly appropriate since their research program, initiated and nurtured through the Workshop, has always been in-between different fields and sub-fields in the social sciences (political science, economics, public administration, law, history, anthropology), cultivating a strong interdisciplinary way of doing research and exploiting the virtuous circle between theory, analysis, model building, and empirical research. Engaging in a creative dialogue with ideas and methods of other research programs is a way of sharpening one's analytic tools, while renovating one's own vision of social research. This volume is a way of thinking through and beyond the Bloomington School.
This book explores the traditional use of Ilex paraguariensis, a plant that is widely distributed in South America. Thanks to its purported properties, it has been used for centuries in the form of teas with a variety of names, including: 'yerba mate' (Argentina), 'chimarrao' (Brazil), and others. Ilex paraguariensis and its teas (also referred to as 'mate teas') are well known because of their alleged pharmacological effects in numerous common conditions, including obesity, osteoporosis, constipation, arthritis, and hypertension. These effects are generally ascribed to yerba mate teas because the botanical species contains bioactive and stimulating substances like caffeine (originally dubbed 'mateine'), various alkaloids, and several phenolic acids. Interestingly, the chemical profiles of these teas can fluctuate over time, creating serious production problems. As a result, it is difficult to reliably determine their safety and health effects on humans. In response to the global interest in these products, this book offers a reference guide to 'yerba mate'/'chimarrao' teas. It analyzes their chemical profiles, discusses their bioactive features, and addresses their safety and health effects. In addition, since the cultural heritage of yerba mate has greatly contributed to its international success, the book also provides information on its historical legacy, regulatory aspects, and the global market.
This book constitutes the refereed post-proceedings of the First PASCAL Machine Learning Challenges Workshop, MLCW 2005. 25 papers address three challenges: finding an assessment base on the uncertainty of predictions using classical statistics, Bayesian inference, and statistical learning theory; second, recognizing objects from a number of visual object classes in realistic scenes; third, recognizing textual entailment addresses semantic analysis of language to form a generic framework for applied semantic inference in text understanding.
