Описание: В 1966 году в Национальной библиотеке в Мадриде были обнаружены два манускрипта, написанные Леонардо. Когда-то они не были учтены при каталогизации, и об их существовании не было известно. Этим двум манускриптам дали условные названия «Мадридский кодекс I» и «Мадридский кодекс II».
«Мадридский кодекс I» состоит из 192 листов 1490—1499 годов написания, содержащих изображения различных механизмов и изложения теории механики. Хотя работа и посвящена механике, в ней есть заметки по астрономии и по оптике.
«Мадридский кодекс II» был создан Леонардо в 1503—1505 гг. и состоит из 158 листов. Он собрал исследования в области геометрии, такие, например, как «квадратуры круга». Кроме этого, в нём содержатся работы по перспективе и оптике. В книге можно найти эскизы морских и топографических карт, рассматриваются проблемы военной техники и архитектуры. Самое интересное в этом кодексе — неосуществлённый проект изменения русла реки Арно, эскизы фрески «Битва при Ангиари» и конного памятника Франческо Сфорца.

Boys are also over-represented, especially those who are over the age of 10 years. In recent years, concern has been expressed about providing short breaks to children who have complex health needs, not only because of the knowledge that is needed to provide good care but also because of anxiety about litigation if something goes wrong. This is a particular issue if the person providing the care is not a parent and is not a registered nurse. Such concerns have led some local authorities to introduce restrictive policies that prohibit placements with any non-parent carer who is either an employee of the authority or an agent of it.

In Kirp’s view, these reflect a cultural tradition of individualism by which the USA is stereotyped. In contrast, UK practice is dominated by what Kirp calls ‘professionalization’, wherein stra­ tegically placed or dominant professional groups control or act as ‘gatekeepers’ to procedures, processes, resources and so on. A much more important point remains however. There is a range of somewhat bewildering, confusing and sometimes contradictory legislation, the cumulative effect of which would seem to be hindering rather than helping to support individuals experiencing special educational needs, by diverting pro­ fessionals away from their principal task of delivering such support.
