Two approaches to prehistoric numeracy are analyzed and compared. The first uses traditional archaeological methods and criteria to examine and characterize marks on prehistoric artifacts for the purpose of assessing whether they were notations. The second uses a theoretical framework in which cognition is extended—meaning that material forms are a...

The number of road collisions have plateaued over the past decade, both in the UK and worldwide. One problem is that most road safety investigations focus on the immediate, sharp-end factors rather than delving into the deeper, blunt-end, systems factors. It is argued that the contributions of both of these types of factors need to be understood be...

Traditional notions of learning, teaching, schooling, and leading, contribute to the inequity and injustice found in schools. In this study, autoethnography was used as a process and product to explore one leader’s journey opening and leading a new “alternative” school as the school’s principal. These experiences create the backdrop of a larger nar...

The collaborative filtering recommendation technique (CFR) is one of the techniques used in recommended systems, in which the most proximal neighbours to a target user are selected. Their profiles are used to predict rating for items as yet unrated by that target user. However, malicious users inject fake user profiles to destroy the security and r...

Forecasting support systems (FSSs) support demand planners in important forecasting decisions by offering statistical forecasts. However, planners often rely on their judgment more than on system-based advice which can be detrimental to forecast accuracy. This is caused by a lack of understanding and subsequent lack of trust in the FSS and its advi...

Traditional materials have a lower commercial impact than thermoelectric (TE) nanostructure materials. These materials have advanced to the point that a thermoelectric generator (TEG) may be built using them. Bi2Te3-xSex (0.10 ≤ X ≤ 1.80) nanostructure materials would overcome the constraint of Bi2Te3 for TEG manufacturing in advanced TE technology...
