Mechanics of Impression Evidence

Mechanics of Impression Evidence PDF Author: David S. Pierce
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9781439813720
Category : Law
Languages : en
Pages : 241

Book Description
As forensic technology becomes more sophisticated, courts are demanding more scientific content and juries are expecting meticulous confirmation of facts alleged. Greater attention is now paid to increasingly finer details and improved methods of describing every form of evidence. Applying physics, chemistry, and engineering to the process of analysis and interpretation, Mechanics of Impression Evidence reflects the shift to these heightened standards and offers a starting point for significant change in the way that impression evidence is considered, utilized, and presented. Concepts discussed in this groundbreaking text include: The three-dimensional nature of the human fingerprint and a shift toward a more holistic image of the surface of friction skin Dimensional stability and striation mark issues, which can change the way footwear outsoles are evaluated and compared The research and development of electrostatic scans that could possibly save lives and locate or describe evidence as never before The growing availability of new measurement techniques that can improve evidence testimony The use of personal experimentation to support conclusions or confirm that which is otherwise considered fact Making use of logic and science to question our approach to impression evidence, this volume begins with simple ideas and basic notions and uses these building blocks to suggest and consider potentially controversial changes in the way evidence is located, interpreted, compared, and presented.

Learn & Unlearn PDF Author: Surendra Verma
Publisher: New Holland Publishing Australia Pty Limited
ISBN: 9781742575964
Category : Self-Help
Languages : en
Pages : 208

Book Description
The book provides up-to-date information on various topics of general interest. Unlearning is not the same as forgetting. It requires fundamental changes to our mental processes and a relentless willingness to pursue new ways. It's far more difficult than learning as it challenges old values and beliefs. But it opens up new realties and possibilities by unleashing creative energy to experience others and ourselves in absolutely different ways. A lifetime of learning cannot be erased easily. Therefore, the quest to embrace new knowledge and unlearn old skills and behaviours is a road full of potholes. The old wisdom is that we learn best from our mistakes. Please do consult a health professional before you act on any health and diet information in this book. -- Surendra Verma
