When a girl loses the class pet (and her homework), her excuses become increasingly silly and far-fetched, and her efforts to find the ferret are giggle-inducing. Fans of Guinea Dog will love this hilarious Jennings story.
How many excuses are there for not doing homework? Let us count the ways: Giant lizards invaded the neighbour-hood. Elves hid all the pens. And then there was that problem with carnivorous plants...The excuses go on and on, each more absurd than the next and escalating to hilarious heights. Featuring detail-rich illustrations by illustrator Benjamin Chaud, this book is guaranteed to amuse kids and their parents, not to mention anyone who has experienced a slacker student moment - and isn't that everyone?
In No Excuses Detox, Megan Gilmore presents a collection of 100 satisfying, family-friendly recipes developed with speed, convenience, and optimum digestion in mind. Because enjoying what you eat on a daily basis is crucial to maintaining health goals, these recipes for comfort food favorites--from Freezer Waffles, Sloppy Joe-Stuffed Sweet Potatoes, and Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks to Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookies and Pumpkin Bars with Maple Pecan Glaze--taste just as good as their traditional counterparts. By addressing the reasons people fail to stick to a healthy diet--"I'm too busy to cook," "Healthy food is expensive," "I have a family of picky eaters to feed," "If it's good for me, it probably won't taste good or fill me up"--this beautifully packaged and artfully photographed book gives readers no excuse to not eat well year-round.
Homework has always been a controversial issue since the beginning of education. Teachers have always considered it as one of the major educational tools; homework has been used in various forms. Doing homework has always been difficult for students. They have always suffered from doing homework especially in the initial years of their education. Even they sometimes ask their parents to do it for them. Gradually, they will face more problems. Homework has been given various names. Some call it the factor of activity, practice, internalization, and educational creativity; some others call it as disaster; a group consider it as the factor for instability of the family and the dispute between parents; some extremists call it an educational monster that ruins learners’ talents, tendencies and motivations in the era of the third wave; they consider it as a psychological torture for students.

The amount of collected data is increasing all the time in the world. Even though computers are getting faster and faster, large databases still need better and more accurate methodologies for them to be useful in practice. Some techniques are not feasible to be applied to very large databases or are not able to provide the necessary accuracy. This book focuses on two aspects encountered with databases, time series prediction and missing value imputation. Accurate prediction of future values is heavily dependent not only on a good model, which is well trained and validated, but also preprocessing, input variable selection or projection and output approximation strategy selection. On the other hand, missing values can be a nuisance, but can also be a prohibiting factor in the use of certain methodologies and degrade the performance of others. Hence, missing value imputation is a very necessary part of the preprocessing of a database. Furthermore, even though the accuracy is always the main requisite for a good methodology, this book touches the aspect of computational time, which has to be considered with the accuracy in order to reach good results.
In rural Devon, six-year-old Joanna Mason witnesses an appalling crime. Thirty years later the man convicted of the crime is released from prison. In Edinburgh, sixteen-year-old Reggie works as a nanny for a G.P. But Dr Hunter has gone missing and Reggie seems to be the only person who is worried. Across town, Detective Chief Inspector Louise Monroe is also looking for a missing person, unaware that hurtling towards her is an old friend -- Jackson Brodie -- himself on a journey that becomes fatally interrupted.
Sometimes ignorance excuses, sometimes it does not. Whether ignorance can be used as an excuse is controversial. Can ancient slaveholders be excused for owning slaves because they did not know that slavery is wrong? Sixteen new essays explore various ways of defining the line between ignorance that excuses and ignorance that does not.
Homework - дебютный студийный альбом французского электронного дуэта Daft Punk выпущен 20 января 1997 года. Считается смесью стилей хаус, техно, фанк и эйсид-хаус. Альбом произвёл сильное влияние и подогрел интерес к французскому хаусу среди других музыкантов, играющих в том же стиле.
A new approach is presented for handling missing values in multi-level agent-based simulation (MABS) at micro-level by using truth tables and logical relations. Although micro-level simulation is a vast field to use logical relations with truth tables to find missing values but it takes values into account at individual levels. We used databases in form of tables to extract missing values. We have defined logical relations according to scenario by interacting with truth tables to find appropriate missing values. In this research we have concluded that missing values would be handled in different ways, such as: Artificial neural network, K-nearest neighbor, Statistical method and Data mining; etc… These methods have not facilitated in finding appropriate missing values as we saw in literature. We have created a method that can find missing values and produce good results. We have run our method on a specific scenario to check the efficiency of input handling that motivated us to arrange database in a proper way to handle missing values along.
