###### In the News (Sat 16 Jun 18)

 FCW.com - Fisher searches for the optimal organization Fisher and Paul Brinkley, deputy undersecretary of Defense for business transformation, created BTA according to management principles they developed when they worked together in California in the private sector. Fisher and Brinkley go back to the 1990s tech boom when Brinkley, an executive at JDS Uniphase, was Fisher’s BearingPoint client. Fisher wrote that organizations should eliminate the role of the chief information officer, which he described as “totally ineffective.” CIOs are IT people untrained for leading management reform. www.fcw.com /article97876-03-12-07-Print&printLayout   (900 words)

 DefenseLINK News: Fisher House Founder Dies; Military Loses Stalwart Friend Fisher's remains were buried at Temple Israel Cemetery in Hastings on the Hudson, Westchester County, N.Y. Memorial services were attended by military and civilian dignitaries, including Secretary of the Navy Richard Danzig, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Henry Shelton and other senior defense leaders. Calling Fisher "an American patriot" in a June 4 message, Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen said his death "is a great loss to this country and the Department of Defense." A construction job knee injury caused Fisher to flunk the Marine Corps physical in 1942. Fisher helped all Americans repay the tremendous debt we owe to the men and women who every day risk their lives to defend our nation and advance the cause of freedom around the world," President Clinton said in a statement June 4. www.dod.gov /news/Jun1999/n06101999_9906102.html   (561 words)

 Fisher 95 Their personal style included incredible variation in pace within a day, from relaxed playfulness and leisure to intense urgency and efficiency, even at the same moment, as in the case of one CEO who talked with the office on a speaker phone while lounging or exercising at home. Fifth, in the final three chapters, rare late-stage leaders and organizations are portrayed, and readers are invited to make their own beliefs about the nature of the good life explicit by comparing them to four elements that we believe characterize a late-stage definition of the good life.

 [No title] Additional Qualitative Data In the two anomalous cases, where the organization transformed but the CEO has been measured at a pre-Strategist stage, a thicker description shows that the CEO has treated the consultant and one or more team members who are measured at the Strategist/Leader stage as close confidantes. In the second case where the organization transformed even though the CEO did not measure at the Strategist stage (#6 in Table 2), the CEO worked unusually closely with the consultant for several years, inviting his influence in all aspects of the meeting-to-meeting operation of the senior management team. But, in the case of transforming power, which is neither widely understood, nor widely practiced, the special legitimation and company-wide voice of the CEO is likely to be critical in sustaining transformational processes until the time when results persuade an increasing proportion of the workforce to commit more fully and internally to the new order. www2.bc.edu /~torbert/Org%20Trans%20&%20CEO.DOC   (6206 words)

 Gravesite of Alice Fisher Alice Fisher was an early nursing pioneer: born in England, she trained at the Nightingale Training School at St. Thomas Hospital and served as a superintendent in several United Kingdom Hospitals before coming to the United States in 1884. The transformation of "Old Blockley" under Miss Fisher's control, exemplifies why the concept of trained nurses was accepted in the late nineteenth century. Miss Fisher is still honored today as nurses in the Philadelphia area hold an annual procession to the Woodland Cemetery where she is buried. www.aahn.org /gravesites/fisher.html   (262 words)

 Rooke/WRT 95 In this paper, we discuss what appears to be one critical variable in successful organizational transformation toward becoming a learning organization: the ego development stage of the CEO and his or her senior advisers. The key paradox of transformational praxis--that developmental theory highlights and that the action inquiry approach to practice enacts--is that no kind of power (coercive, referent, legitimate, or expert) can generate personal or organizational transformation when it is exercised unilaterally (Torbert, 1991). In the second case where the organization transformed even though the CEO did not measure at the Strategist stage (#6 in Table 4), the CEO worked unusually closely with the consultant for several years, inviting his influence in all aspects of the meeting-to-meeting operation of the senior management team. www2.bc.edu /~torbert/8_rooke_wrt95.html   (6080 words)

 Castles in the Sand - The Life and Times of Carl Graham Fisher - by Mark S. Foster- A new book from the University ... This definitive biography of Fisher, abundantly illustrated and written in an engaging style, captures the headiness of the period. Mark Foster traces Fisher’s transformation of the South Florida landscape into a tourist’s dream of golf, polo, deep sea fishing, and luxury hotels and his animation of that dream with bronzed lifeguards, bathing beauties flashing new swimsuit styles, and visiting dignitaries who generated a stream of tantalizing headlines. Foster also treats Fisher’s troubles with labor and with Miami businessmen, his attempted development of Montauk on Long Island, New York, and the collapse of the entire Fisher enterprise in the wake of the 1926 hurricane and the great stock market crash of 1929. www.upf.com /Fall2000/foster.html   (387 words)

 BioMed Central | Full text | Joint analysis of two microarray gene-expression data sets to select lung adenocarcinoma ... Fisher's Linear Discrimination (FLD) is a traditional classification method that has computational efficiency, while Random Forests (RF), as proposed recently by Breiman [ 8, 9 ] is based on growing an ensemble of trees (classifiers) on bootstrapped samples, which improves the classification accuracy significantly. Because of this, we proposed a distribution transformation method to transform the two data sets to a similar distribution. Fisher's method is to transform the multivariate data G to one dimension by the linear combination of α www.biomedcentral.com /1471-2105/5/81   (5963 words)

 [No title]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26) ABSTRACT Transformation of Escherichia coli with Dictyostelium discoideum genomic DNA containing integrated shuttle vectors in multicopy, tandemly duplicated format resulted in the establishment of the linear plasmid molecules as circular monomeric replicons. The transformation efficiencies were comparable to those obtained with circular plasmid DNA and the recovered plasmids were free of deletions and rearrangements. Digestion of the genomic DNA prior to the transformation using restriction enzymes that cut within the inserted plasmids reduced the transformation efficiency dramatically and a high proportion of the recovered plasmids carried deletions. www.dictybase.org /newsletter/Vol_7(1996)/CSM-News.v7.%236   (455 words)

 MICROSTRUCTURAL ASPECTS OF MARTENSITE TRANSFORMATION IN COARSE-GRAINED Fe-31.1 Pct Ni-0.02 Pct C - Storming Media Abstract: The microstructural aspects of martensite formation which are relevant to the description of the transformation kinetics were determined by quantitative metallography methods. A modification of the Chen-Winchell model was advanced which allows an 'average' description of the change in the plates radius along the transformation. Fisher's equation was also found to yield a similar type of description of the variation of the plates volume. www.stormingmedia.us /18/1894/D189411.html   (188 words)

 A short course in Eiffel   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26) The duality transformation is applied to the Fisher zeroes near the ferromagnetic critical point in the q>4 state two dimensional Potts model. A requirement that the locus of the duals of the zeroes be identical to the dual of the locus of zeroes in the thermodynamic limit (i) recovers the ratio of specific heat to internal energy discontinuity at criticality and the relationships between the discontinuities of higher cumulants and (ii) identifies duality with complex conjugation. This locus, together with the density of zeroes is then shown to be sufficient to recover the singular part of the thermodynamic functions in the thermodynamic limit. www.maths.tcd.ie /report_series/abstracts/tcdm9707.html   (142 words)

 Pattern and component cells This is a variance-stabilizing transformation which is necessary for our further analysis of the data. With the Fisher z-transformation, the result is a space in which the absolute differences between numbers are meaningful. Here, the variance-stabilizing Fisher z-transformation has modified the space such that absolute differences in the z-scores are meaningful (which is the reason the significance lines are now straight). www.cnbc.cmu.edu /~masmith/reprints/thesis_html/node55.html   (324 words)

 EileenChang For Fisher, the methodology used by these historians was both a cause and a symptom of this problem. Ironically for someone attempting to demystify the Revolution, Fisher was engaged in some myth-making of his own. Thus, by reassessing the theory and practice of citation in early national historiography, this paper seeks at once to revise the conventional narrative of American historiography, and to shed light on the political and social transformations of the early republic. www.h-net.org /~shear/s99abs/EileenCheng.htm   (471 words)
