Uncertain Victory: Social Democracy and Progressivism in European and American Thought, 1870-1920

Among 1870 and 1920, generations of eu and American intellectuals created a transatlantic neighborhood of philosophical and political discourse. doubtful Victory, the 1st comparative research of principles and politics in France, Germany, the U. S. , and nice Britain in the course of those fifty years, demonstrates how a couple of thinkers from diversified traditions converged to create the theoretical foundations for brand spanking new courses of social democracy and progressivism.

Sample text

Larson presented a portable wireless sensor to detect object usage in existing homes that (1) is easy to use and easy to install, (2) extends battery life for longitudinal deployments by combining two sensing modalities, and (3) minimizes false positives due to adjacent movement of objects and environmental noise. The sensor parameters suggested err on the side of sensitivity to object usage to minimize false negatives because offline filtering could further reduce false positives. However, the sensor parameters can be modified allowing researchers to trade real vs.

1. 1 Hardware Design The object usage sensor nodes developed in this work are built upon an existing wireless sensing infrastructure [10]. This sensing platform uses a featherweight MAC protocol in combination with a star network topology to save energy, simplify usage, and permit simultaneous reception from high and low sampling rate sensors. More details can be found in [10]. 6). Moreover, the hardware and software principles on which the object usage sensors are based and presented in this work could also be used to improve sensor performance and battery life for sensor nodes using state-of-the-art mesh networking protocols.

These same sensor characteristics will also be desirable once the sensor technology migrates from use in research to use in commercial ubiquitous computing applications. At first glance, the problem of recognizing object usage from object motion might appear trivial. g. 5Hz) motion, vibration, tilt, or accelerometer sensor to a wireless node. The device would transmit an object ID wirelessly when significant movement is observed by simply thresholding the motion, vibration, tilt, or acceleration signal, where the threshold is determined in an object independent manner (since setting object-dependent thresholds in the field increases installation complexity).
