3.2.1 Ever-changing labels

A few years from now, there will undoubtedly be new labels for people with learning disabilities and mental health problems, and other groups who are seen to need care. This is because new labels which are intended to de-stigmatise get contaminated by some of the negative attitudes attached to the condition they are describing.

2.3 Conclusion

In this course we have used the Blackwater to identify the theme of environmental response. Responses involve the interaction of human and natural processes. For example, the rise in sea level experienced in the estuary is partly natural readjustment after the Ice Age and partly a response to greenhouse gas emissions caused by human activity. This rise has brought about two forms of response: human responses to change in the environment and responses made by the environment.

This unit looks at the way people identify and become attached to places, buildings and objects. It also analyses how this attachment can impact on personal well-being. Understanding this is important in assessing the care people of all ages need and how this care should be delivered.

Gram-Schmidt Orthogonalization
A set of n vectors each with n values may form a basis for a vector space. However, in general these are not normalized (length is 1) nor are they orthogonal. A procedure to form an orthonormal basis for the vector space is called Gram-Schmidt orthonormalization. This site cotains a tool that computes the orthonormal basis numerically with the full precision of the floating point numbers.
