The Worst Street in London

Halfway up Commercial Street, one block away from Spitalfields Market, lies an anonymous service road. The average pedestrian wouldn't even notice it existed. But unlikely though it may seem, this characterless, 400ft strip of tarmac was once Dorset Street - the most notorious thoroughfare in the Capital: the worst street in London and the resort of Protestant fire-brands, thieves, con-men, pimps, prostitutes and murderers, most notably Jack the Ripper. Spitalfields as a whole is now a vibrant and fashionable place to live, work and play: the home of artists and artisans, just as it was when the Huguenots settled there. However, as dusk falls, the seemingly indelible, sordid side of this fascinating part of London begins to emerge once again as the unknowing descendants of Mary Kelly, Mary Ann Austin and Kitty Ronan and others begin to ply their trade around the hallowed walls of Christ Church. All signs of Dorset Street, ' the worst street in London', may all but have disappeared from the map but its legacy is too powerful to ever be entirely erased. This book chronicles the rise and fall of this remarkable street, from its promising beginnings at the centre of the 17th Century silk weaving industry through its gradual descent into iniquity, vice and violence to its final demise at the hands of the demolition men. Its remarkable history gives a fascinating insight into an area of London that has, from its initial development, been a cultural melting pot - the place where many thousands of immigrants became Londoners. It also tells the story of a part of London that, until quite recently, was largely left to fend for itself, with truly horrifying results.

A History of Rome (Classic Reprint)

It advances somewhat in the manner of a widening series of concentric circles: first a single city among a group of kindred communities in theL atin plain bounded by the Tiber, theS abine and Volscian hills, and the Tuscan sea: then a united Latin power, with the city of Rome as its head: then a power embracing the whole of I taly, and extending its control over theM editerranean coast-lands: and, finally, a world-empire, including within its citizenship a great variety of races, united in a common allegiance to the Roman Emperor, and enjoying a common civilisation. In the achievement of this result, which was fully attained by the middle of the third century after Christ, the native Romans took other peoples into partnership with them their near kindred of theL atin stock first of all: then the other races of I taly, Umbrians, Samnites, Etruscans, and Greeks: and then, by a continuous process of enfranchisement, the inhabitants of their conquered territories beyond I taly, inS pain, Gaul, theD anubian lands, Greece and the Graecised eastern countries, and northern A frica. All these peoples, in the end, called themselves Romans, and shared in the benefits and the burdens of the Roman civilisation :thus about the middle of the first century A.D. we find S. Paul, by descent a Jew, by nativity aC ilician ofT arsus, claiming the liberties and privileges of a Roman citizen as his birthright.

Hard Road to Glory

'The biggest success story from our gym,' said legendary trainer Brendan Ingle, whose string of champions includes Naseem Hamed. Brendan Ingle might have added that skinny Johnny Nelson, from the wrong side of Sheffield, was also the least likely to succeed. But Nelson had a stubbon streak. Determined not to let his early failures stop him, he went into exile, taking fights all over the world to learn his craft. Finally - nine years being booed out of the ring - he earned the respect of everyone.

In ferner Zukunft.

Die Claifex, in der die Menschen seit Jahrhunderten gesetzlose Nomaden waren, ist dank der Nefilim untergegangen. Doch auch in den Vereinigten Welten bleibt das Schicksal der Menschheit ungewiss, denn ihre Heimat, die Erde, ist unbewohnbar. Wä:hrend sich dunkle Mä:chte erheben, die nicht nur die Menschheit zu vernichten drohen, geben einige Tapfere nicht auf, weiter um Gaia und die Vereinigten Welten zu kä:mpfen.

Auf der Erde konnten Iason und seine Gefä:hrten eine Basis auf dem Sü:dseeatoll Huahine errichten, aber noch bleibt der grö:ß:te Teil der verwü:steten Erde unbewohnbar - ein Problem, fü:r dessen Lö:sung vor allem finanzielle Mittel fehlen.
Als den Kalypso-Werken allerdings ein besonders groß:er Auftrag in Aussicht gestellt wird, entsteht Skepsis gegenü:ber den Auftraggebern. Sie benö:tigen 72.000 der erfolgreichen Gaia-Modelle: Verwendungszweck geheim. Um auszuschließ:en, dass die angeforderten Roboter zu Kriegszwecken verwendet werden, entsendet Demi Tomasi Iason und seine Crew zu den Jolaski Tarn.
Im Jolask-System angekommen, entdecken sie die im Bau befindliche Quontuur - ein Raumschiff, dessen ungeheuerliche Grö:ß:e den Nefilim Musashi vermuten lä:sst, dass es nur militä:rischen Zwecken dienen kann. Iason als erfahrener Schatzsucher hat hingegen eine ganz andere Vermutung ...
Innerhalb kü:rzester Zeit werden Iason und seine Gefä:hrten in eines der aufregendsten Abenteuer verwickelt, das sie bisher erlebt haben und insbesondere Iason muss schließ:lich auf schmerzvolle Weise erfahren, was fü:r ihn das Wichtigste im Leben ist ... wird er am Ende die Kraft finden, um weiter fü:r die Freiheit aller Lebewesen in der VerWel zu kä:mpfen?

The Duke Divinity School Review, Vol. 41: Winter 1976 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Duke Divinity School Review, Vol. 41: Winter 1976

This issue of the Review is about preaching. In recent years, preaching has been ridiculed, maligned, and dispossessed even by those whose ordination sets them aside for the ministry of word. The prologue of the gospel of John calls the chief actor in all things The Word, and the great reformers viewed this whole area as absolutely central in the life of the church. Yet preaching has seemed empty and futile for many persons in ministry, and they have hoped for more significant activities such as counseling, edu cation, community action, small groups, etc. These are vital minis tries, but they have not yet displaced preaching as an integral part of the life of the Church.

There are many evidences of the enduring power and mystery of preaching and some suggestions that we are now in a renaissance of interest and purpose relative to true preaching. The articles that follow will encourage all those who have anything at all to do with the word preached and heard to lift high their expectations for the place of the pulpit in the Christian Church.

Carlyle Marney, who has helped many preachers to discover a dialogical learning - teaching - preaching - being in the community of faith, describes vividly and helpfully The Fundaments of Com petent Ministry. He suggests that the word competent could be changed to pastoral or preaching (the Fundaments of Preaching Ministry).

Some new resources for Biblical preaching are related to the ecumenical lectionary - (cocu Vatican Council 11 declared that at mass the treasures of the Bible should be opened up more lavishly so that richer fare might be provided for the faithful at the table of God's word. The development of a new Roman Catholic lectionary beginning in 1970 followed. American Protes tants, some of them consulted in the preparation of said lectionary, considered the Roman Catholic Lessons as they revised their own books of worship. There is sufficient unity in the resulting lection aries of several traditions to allow an inter-denominational publi cation of aids for interpreting the Lessons of the Church Year. This series of twenty-five books entitled Proclamation is reviewed by Lloyd Bailey, and the matter of lectionary preaching is addressed.

Applied Latin: A Course for Beginners (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Applied Latin: A Course for Beginners

After an experience of several years teaching in College and High School, the author has become convinced that the present First Year books do not satisfy modern needs in the teaching of Latin nor do they handle the subject in a manner that produces 'the greatest good for the greatest number' of students.

I. The Beginners' books in present use have been written too much for the small number of students who intend to go to College, and too little for the great number who study Latin only during two or three years of High School work.

Within the last few years the makers of High School curricula have been forced to pay more attention to the demands of the great mass of students who go no further than the High School. Courses more nearly related to their needs in later life as citizens and workers have been adopted. Traditional courses which gained reputations as valuable only for College students have been disregarded by the authorities and neglected by the students. Latin, especially, has been attacked as an educational luxury, because laymen have thought that the net results of the study do not justify the outlay of so much valuable time. Too often no definite advance could be pointed out as the result of the first year's study even by the teachers.

Developing Person Centred Practice

Person-centred care is the idea that the healthcare professional shifts their focus from routine tasks and processes to the individual needs of the patients. It has been highlighted as the cornerstone of high quality care. But whilst few practitioners intend to work in a non-person-centred way, for reasons such as priorities, organisational policies, workplace culture and resources, a person-centred approach can be very difficult to achieve. This book provides a practice-focused exploration of how the ideas of person-centeredness can be developed and incorporated in to everyday practice: - It forms each chapter around an engaging case study, with examples from adult and child health, mental health, learning disabilities and many more. - It introduces the theoretical basis of person-centred care, including the benefits it has for working environments, staff and patients. - It demonstrates how meaningful practice development partnerships can be made with patients, including who to involve and how to involve them. - It takes the reader through the steps of developing a person-centred ethos- from encouraging people to participate in the development, to evaluating the progress and sustaining it in the long run. With clear and accessible guidance through the use of chapter overviews, key points, activities and web-based resources, this is an important book for anyone interested in developing a person-centred approach to care.

Inventory Management Careers

Many students complete their secondary schooling unsure of the career path they wish to pursue. Still very few complete post-secondary education knowing their chosen career path. Information to guide students on choosing their career paths is not readily available locally. The few career guidance showcases put on by the school system falls short of providing meaningful information for students. The importance of knowing at an early stage the pathway to a chosen career is invaluable as it saves time, worry, anxiety and financial resources. This is where Dawn French and her Careers series come in. Whether you are a parent, a student or someone looking to a new career, this series provides invaluable information on the common career pathways in Saint Lucia. The information presented is simple to understand and straight to the point. The series provides information on academic qualifications/skills requirements, educational institutions, scholarship/financial aid opportunities, an interview primer and potential employment opportunities. I encourage everyone interested in pursuing a career to get their hands on a copy of their chosen Career book. This little investment will pay off huge dividends in the long term as it will guide you in pursuing your chosen career.

The Wit and Wisdom of London brings together their best and most memorable quotations, a treasury of the cleverest, the wittiest, and the bawdiest sayings of the city's greatest residents.

Carved in Stone: The History of Stone Mountain (Civil War Georgia)

In 1915 the United Daughters of the Confederacy leased the land and commissioned Gutzon Borglum, later the sculptor of Mount Rushmore, to carve the Lost Cause memorial on the mountain where the second Ku Klux Klan was resurrected by William J. Simmons. Proceeding intermittently over six decades, the project was given added impetus in the wake of the South's massive resistance to racial integration. Capitalizing on this impulse, the state of Georgia funded the completion of the project in 1958 for use as a tourist attraction. Opening as a theme park in 1970, Stone Mountain now draws some five million visitors a year, exceeded only by the Disney theme parks in Orlando, Florida. David Freeman's Carved in Stone narrates the development of Stone Mountain from natural wonder to historic site to recreational park. This elegantly written story recounts the fits and starts of the Stone Mountain project, tracing the mountain's changing meaning over time. Readers of Georgia history and enthusiasts of Confederate iconography will find Freeman's work a fascinating story.

A History of Cannon Mountain: Trails, Tales, and Ski Legends

More than a dozen members of the U.S. Ski Hall of Fame--whose contributions to the sport include historic racing feats, the development of ski techniques and designing countless ski areas across the country and around the world--have called Cannon their home hill. Join author and longtime Cannon skier Meghan McCarthy McPhaul on the slopes of this historic mountain.

Once I Gazed at You in Wonder: Poems (Walt Whitman Award of the Academy of American Poets)

Alice Fulton, the judge for the 1998 Walt Whitman Award, calls :Once I Gazed at You in Wonder : ldquo:quite simply, the most endearing book I rsquo:ve read in some time. rdquo: Readers of this audacious and, yes, endearing collection will agree. Jan Heller Levi has said that her poems are not confessions but conversations. Here, then, are her conversations with the world. What sets Levi apart, however, is that she lets the world answer back. Difficult fathers, ineffectual mothers are forgiven: ex-lovers are blessed. Sophisticated but never jaded, this poet looks in wonder beyond the self: a cup of coffee in one of New York rsquo:s ubiquitous Greek diners can launch Levi into a meditation on truth versus compassion: a suite of elegies for her mother takes us from a hospital corridor to the studio of a television talk show where God is the guest: a poetry reading in which she shares the stage with a folk singer illustrates Levi rsquo:s gift for illuminating the absurd textures of late-twentieth-century existence.

With the narrative drive of great fiction, the consolations of philosophy, and the rigor of art, :Once I Gazed at You in Wonder :marks the entrance of a much-needed new voice and vision in the conversation that is American poetry.

Compassionate Vietnamese American Ceos: How Six High-Tech Entrepreneurs Achieve Bottom Line Success by Leading with Their Hearts

Much has been written on how to build and grow successful corporations. And yet, traditionally, management gurus often hesitated to explore the role that culture played in corporate success and growth. Recently however, and especially in our straitened economic climate, it has become more acceptable to surmise that culture does indeed play a significant role and to explore alternate, culturally-infused paths to corporate success.

Author Lena Tran is right on the money in her new book from Happy About, Compassionate Vietnamese American CEOs. She explores the role of culture, particularly Vietnamese culture, in creating business success. Interviewing several community visionaries--including one billionaire and a couple of millionaires--who worked for major high-tech enterprises, Lena explores the cultural context and values they brought to bear to build happy and successful companies, even in turbulent economic times. Using a rigorous and analytic interview approach, she describes how success can be hinged on core values built upon cultural beliefs, family traditions and time-honored, culturally-contextual leadership practices.

The author's purpose is to nurture an understanding of the deep connections between culture and corporate success, and at the same time tell an interesting and engaging story. In this she succeeds with remarkable ease and clarity. She narrates how each of her interviewees sought to blend their deep-rooted cultural beliefs with western leadership theories and practices of business management. She reveals how, consciously or subliminally, core values linked to cultural beliefs and family traditions shaped leadership practices. Vietnamese culture has always focused on respect for others and self, consideration for employees, 'saving face' for families and a faith in karma and Lena expertly shows how these can serve as cornerstones to create happy, cohesive and successful companies. Compassionate Vietnamese American CEOs, a great read under any circumstances, becomes doubly relevant in today's economic scenario.

Men of Modest Substance: House Owners and House Property in Seventeenth-Century Ankara and Kayseri (Cambridge Studies in Islamic Civilization)

This is a study of two contrasting towns in Anatolia in the seventeenth century. As house ownership was widespread, data concerning value, description, location and ownership of dwellings constitute a valid manner of approaching urban society as a whole. Through her use of documents from the kadi registers of Ankara and Kayseri, Dr Faroqui follows changes in patterns of house ownership over approximately a century. The urban society thus revealed differs from the patterns generally associated with the 'Islamic city' model. Townsmen often bought real estate without selecting a quarter inhabited by their co-religionists, which throws light on the Muslim majority's attitude to the Christian minority. However examples of wealthy and poor quarters were not known. The kadi registers also indicate that despite passing through a period of crisis early in the century, both cultures managed a fairly rapid recovery from this.

When the Facts Change: Essays, 1995-2010

In an age in which the lack of independent public intellectuals has often been sorely lamented, the historian Tony Judt played a rare and valuable role, bringing together history and current events, Europe and America, what was and what is with what should be. In When the Facts Change, Tony Judt s widow and fellow historian Jennifer Homans has assembled an essential collection of the most important and influential pieces written in the last fifteen years of Judt s life, the years in which he found his voice in the public sphere. Included are seminal essays on the full range of Judt s concerns, including Europe as an idea and in reality, before 1989 and thereafter: Israel, the Holocaust and the Jews: American hyperpower and the world after 9/11: and issues of social inclusion and social justice in an age of increasing inequality.
Judt was at once most at home and in a state of what he called internal exile from his native England, from Europe, and from America, and he finally settled in New York between them all. He was a historian of the twentieth century acutely aware of the dangers of ethnic exceptionalism, and if he was shaped by anything, it was the Jewish past and his own secularism. His essays on Israel ignited a firestorm debate for their forthright criticisms of Israeli government polices relating to the Palestinians and the occupied territories. Those crucial pieces are published here in book form for the first time, including an essay, never previously published, called What Is to Be Done? These pieces are suffused with a deep compassion for the Israeli dilemma, a compassion that instilled in Judt a sense of responsibility to speak out and try to find a better path, away from what he saw as a road to ruin.
When the Facts Change also contains Judt s homages to the culture heroes who were some of his greatest inspirations: Amos Elon, Francois Furet, Leszek Kolakowski, and perhaps above all Albert Camus, who never accepted the complacent view that the problem of evil couldn't lie within us as well as outside us. Included here too is a magnificent two-part essay on the social and political importance of railway travel to our modern conception of a good society: as well as the urgent text of What Is Living and What Is Dead in Social Democracy, the final public speech of his life, delivered from a wheelchair after he had been stricken with a terrible illness: and a tender and wise dialogue with his then-teenage son, Daniel, about the different outlooks and burdens of their two generations.
To read When the Facts Change is to miss Tony Judt s voice terribly, but to cherish it for what it was, and still is: a wise, human, deeply informed view on our most pressing concerns, delivered in good faith.'

Assume Nothing

With this intimate series of images, Rebecca Swan launches an inquiry into the understanding of gender across cultures, nations, and generations. Assume Nothing features frank and arresting images of twenty-five participants, along with their candidand sometimes heartrendingcomments about what it has meant to exist outside of traditional gender identities. The participants range in age from twenty to sixty. They are Haitian American, Samoan New Zealander, Maori, European Australian, Aboriginal, and African English. They are gay, lesbian, straight, bisexual, and pansexual. In terms of gender, they are transsexuals, gender queers, eunuchs, sister girls, drag kings and queens, and the alternative gender roles traditional to Maori and Samoan cultures. In their blurring of boundaries, Swan s images ask readers to examine their assumptionsand even, at moments, their own sexuality. They reveal the harm that results from forcing living bodies to conform to preexisting roles and capture a deeper reality of struggle, uncertainty, and process. Above all, they point the way to the creation of a new vocabulary of gender and a world of increased tolerance where, when it comes to gender, nothing is assumed.'

Misty The Freeway Foxhound: The Dog Who Became A Legend

Misty the Freeway Foxhound was so named, because it was on a cold misty November morning that she was first sighted. Looking like a discarded old plastic milk jug to passersby, the dog had curled up to sleep in the mud and snow near a lightpost beside a busy interstate highway.Speculation had it that Misty had once been someone's pet. Perhaps they had let her out of the car at the interchange truck stop and she'd wandered off? Since she wasn't wearing a collar with a name tag, maybe she'd been dumped there deliberately?When her story made the local newspapers, one man immediately came forward and insisted the dog's real name was Patsy Cline. He said that his initials had been tattooed inside both her ears. The man further contended that Patsy had never returned home from the last fox hunt they'd been on.A supposed second owner also claimed to have lost Misty while on a fox hunt. He said she had been called Patches.Whatever her real name was, everyone felt sorry for the handsome looking hound with tan ears and a big brown spot on her side. Many people carried food and water to her, but no one ever got close enough to touch her.Several people attempted to capture Misty, but she always managed to 'outfox them', so to speak. She'd lie in one place, then quickly dart away from anyone she felt came too close.As time went by, one thing became perfectly clear. This dog had made a spot near the interstate her home and she had no intention of leaving until her master returned for her. Sadly for Misty, that day never came.This book is not just a story about an old man and a dog, or a lost dog living near an interstate. It explores the phenomenon of unconditional love that flows both ways between human beings and their animal companions. Whether you are a young or a young-at-heart reader, 'Misty the Freeway Foxhound' is bound to touch you in some way.

Killing Me Softly?: An examination of the depiction of violence in the early films of Jean-Luc Godard (1960-1967)

Jean-Luc Godard's early films proved the adage that all you need to make a movie is 'a girl and a gun'. Whether in crime thrillers like the era-defining A Bout de Souffle (1960) or philosophical science-fiction masterworks like Alphaville (1965), the Nouvelle Vague auteur alternated between romance and action. The violence that peppers Godard's early films seems 'muted', however, prompting this exhaustive study of the director's techniques for depicting violence. Gunshots and car crashes happen off-screen, bottles are smashed silently on victims' skulls, and fistfights are played for laughs. Working with close reference to films including A Bout de Souffle, Vivre Sa Vie, Alphaville, Pierrot le Fou, Weekend and Le Mé:pris, this is a challenging academic study of the early work of one of cinema's greatest living directors. NEW EDITION: This book includes a bonus essay on Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 2001 film Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amé:lie Poulain.

The Trouble Boy

In the tradition of Bright Lights, Big City and Less Than Zero, Tom Dolby has written a searing debut novel about going after what you really want without losing yourself in the process. Powerfully written, keenly felt, The Trouble Boy heralds an exciting new voice in fiction.



'This is about fame and celebrity and the lengths to which people will go to have a taste of it. . .'




At twenty-two, Toby Griffin wants it all--fame, fortune, an Oscar-winning screenplay and a good-looking boyfriend by his side. For now, what he's got is a freelance writing job at a tanking online magazine, a walk-up sublet in the East Village and 'the boys,' a young posse of preppy Upper East Siders with a taste for high fashion, top-shelf liquor and other men.




But for Toby, downing vodka cranberries and falling in and out of lust with a series of guys he knows as Subway Boy, Loft Boy and Goth Boy is getting old. That all changes when Toby gets the chance of a lifetime--working as a personal assistant to hip, ruthless film mogul, Cameron Cole. In this decadent, drug-fueled world of VIP lounges, endless networking and relentless hype, Toby discovers that nothing is what is seems and that anything and anyone can be spun into PR gold. Though he's making friends with all the right people. Toby realizes that succeeding in Manhattan isn't as easy as he thought--until the one tragic night that changes his future forever and puts him in a position of power he never could have imagined.




But with Toby's name suddenly becoming Page Six material, his life is coming unglued. And as his professional contacts betray him and his friends reveal troubling secrets, his choices become that much harder--and that much more important. Now, in his first year on his own, Toby Griffin is about to learn the price of getting everything he ever wanted.


'What really makes Toby's world so familiar--along with the author's lively, often-hilarious eye for even the most mundane social details--is the crisp prose and the snappy story.'

Narrative of the Transactions, Imprisonment, and Sufferings of John Connolloy, an American Loyalist, and Lieutenant-Colonel in His Majesty's Service: ... of Congress, in His Treatment and Detention

Excerpt from Narrative of the Transactions, Imprisonment, and Sufferings of John Connolloy, an American Loyalist, and Lieutenant-Colonel in His Majesty's Service: In Which Are Shewn, the Unjustifiable Proceedings of Congress, in His Treatment and Detention

Here I had an opportunity of observing the great difference between the petite guerre of the Indians, and the military system of the Europeans, and how essentially necessary it was for a good soldier in this service to be master of them both. Animated by a strong desire to make myself worthy to serve my King and country on future occasions, after peace was established with the Indians, I explored our newly acquired territory, visited the various tribes of native Americans, studied their different manners and customs, under¬:took the most toilsome marches with them through the extensive wilds of Canada, and depended upon the precarious chaos for my subsistence for months successively. A perseverance in these preliminary duties of a good soldier taught me to endure hardships, and gave me agility of body, and an aptitude to enterprise, very proper to form a partizan officer.

Delighted with the soil and climate, I afterwards fixed my residence beyond the Apalachian mountains in West Augusta county, and as numbers were daily emigrating thither from the middle Colonies, I was active in encouraging the new settlers: these soon acquired property, the spirit of industry increased, cultivation and improvements were extended, and establishments, scarcely credible, arose from the midst of a wilderness, and spread for more than one hundred miles down the river Ohio. To be at the head of a new settlement was not the only object I had in view. During the preceding war, France had sent her soldiers from Canada, and by seizing this country, and erecting Fort Du Quesne (now Fort Pitt) had given great disturbance to Virginia, and the Middle Colonies in general. This new settlement precluded the possibility of renewing the like ravages from Louisiana, now the only avenue through which we were vulnerable, in case of future hostilities with the House of Bourbon.

Perestroika in Perspective: The Design and Dilemmas of Soviet Reform (Princeton Legacy Library)


Mikhail Gorbachev's perestroika is a historic effort at restructuring the troubled Soviet economy. Wide-ranging in scope, harnessed with cultural and political reforms, it raises intriguing and important questions: Are Gorbachev's ideas different from the Kosygin-Brezhnev reform of 1965 that came to naught? What kinds of problems do the Russians have in understanding the market system? Who opposes perestroika? Do Gorbachev's proposals threaten his own future as Soviet leader? How does perestroika relate to a more general environment of openness, of glasnost? What happened at the June 1988 Party Conference? And, above all, is the old order really giving way to a new one? Or does Gorbachev aim at 'capitalist icing on a socialist cake'?.


To answer these questions and others, Padma Desai, a distinguished pioneer in the modern econometric analysis of the Soviet economy, has distilled from Gorbachev's myriad decrees the outlines of his strategy for doing away with the Soviet Union's long-term economic malaise. Focusing on the key areas of industry, agriculture, services, and foreign trade, she discusses specific blueprints for change and evaluates the possibilities for their success. Skillfully combining charts, photographs, cartoons, and quotes, this book offers a unique and coherent view of the strategy underlying Gorbachev's reform efforts to date--and does so gracefully and with sparkle, in terms completely understandable to the layperson.

FLOW-LIKE MASS MOVEMENTS IN PYROCLASTIC SOILS

Flow-like mass movements are among the most severe natural hazards. They often cause catastrophic consequences when involving pyroclastic soils. These soils are widespread all over the world, also in very high populated regions. Modelling the triggering mechanisms of these landslides is a fundamental step for the hazard assessment. Several approaches are available which, however, must be systematically checked through their application to well documented case histories. In this PhD Dissertation (University of Salerno, 2006) a general discussion is provided for these phenomena. Then, a case study is selected from Southern Italy, where huge rainfall-induced flow- like mass movements caused 159 victims in May 1998. Based on geology, engineering geology, geotechnics and geomechanics, a multidisciplinary approach is used for the analysis of the occurred landslides at different scales. Their triggering mechanisms are individuated and their geomechanical modelling is performed through limit equilibrium, uncoupled and hydro-mechanical coupled stress-strain analyses. The obtained results are compared with those available from other models.

Mary Shelley: A Literary Life (Literary Lives)

Much of Mary Shelley's life reads like a compilation of some of the most lurid and sensationalist novels of her time. After the stormy years of her relationship with Percy Shelley, Mary went on to raise her one surviving son on her own, never sure of the loyalty of friends, threatened and intimidated by her dead husband's father. John Williams offers a thoughtful assessment of her literary achievement, set against the background of the evolution of the English novel in the politically volatile years of the early nineteenth century.

Genetic Fuzzy Systems: Evolutionary Tuning And Learning Of Fuzzy Knowledge Bases (Advances in Fuzzy Systems - Applications and Theory)

In recent years, a great number of publications have explored the use of genetic algorithms as a tool for designing fuzzy systems. Genetic Fuzzy Systems explores and discusses this symbiosis of evolutionary computation and fuzzy logic.The book summarizes and analyzes the novel field of genetic fuzzy systems, paying special attention to genetic algorithms that adapt and learn the knowledge base of a fuzzy-rule-based system. It introduces the general concepts, foundations and design principles of genetic fuzzy systems and covers the topic of genetic tuning of fuzzy systems. It also introduces the three fundamental approaches to genetic learning processes in fuzzy systems: the Michigan, Pittsburgh and Iterative-learning methods. Finally, it explores hybrid genetic fuzzy systems such as genetic fuzzy clustering or genetic neuro-fuzzy systems and describes a number of applications from different areas. Genetic Fuzzy System represents a comprehensive treatise on the design of the fuzzy-rule-based systems using genetic algorithms, both from a theoretical and a practical perspective. It is a valuable compendium for scientists and engineers concerned with research and applications in the domain of fuzzy systems and genetic algorithms.

Establishing a brand name is the goal of anyone introducing a new product, and maintaining a brand over time is even more profitable. Established brands are now major corporate assets, as shown when Philip Morris bought Kraft for four times its book value.The Handbook of Brand Management explains the ins and outs of managing brand names in today's fast-changing, competitive marketplace. Developed by marketing expert David Arnold to answer managers' actual questions about brands, this essential guide combines expert advice with the stories of thirteen successful companies from around the world.This book describes how to research, target, budget, and promote new brand. It presents detailed analyses of marketing plans used in situations both good (how did Anheuser-Busch introduce Michelob Dry so successfully?) and bad (how could Perrier survive the benzene scare?).For established brands, managers learn tactics to reverse a market-share decline, to extend brands internationally, and to appraise a brand name's financial value. They find insights in the examples of Schering-Plough 'stretching' the Coppertone brand to include sunscreens for children, Birds Eye freezing out competitors by how it positioned a new meal in consumers' minds, and many other popular brand-name products.

Developments in Plastics Technology-3: Volume 3

Because of the sheer size of the plastics industry, the title Developments in Plastics Technology now covers an incredibly wide range of subjects or topics. No single volume can survey the whole field in any depth and so what follows is therefore a series of chapters on selected topics. The topics were selected by us, the editors, because of their immediate relevance to the plastics industry. When one considers the materials produced and used by the modern plastics industry, there is a tendency to think of the commodity thermoplastics (such as poly(vinyl chloride) or polyethylene): the thermosetting materials are largely ignored. Because of this attitude we are very pleased to include in this volume a chapter which deals with the processing of a thermosetting material, i.e. the pultrusion of glass reinforced polyester. The extrusion of plastics is, of course, a very important subject but an aspect which is often overlooked is the need to remove volatile matter during processing: for this reason we have included a chapter on devolatilisation. Current industrial practice is towards materials modification and this attitude is reflected in the chapters on the transformation of ethylene vinyl acetate polymers and the use of wollastonite in two important thermoplastics. When assessing the performance of materials, there is a tendency to concentrate on short-term mechanical tests and ignore such topics as fatigue and longer-term testing. We are therefore very pleased to include a chapter on this subject.

Thames Bridges Then and Now (River and Waterway Heritage)

Thames Bridges - this may prompt many to think of the London bridges which span the river - Tower Bridge, Hammersmith Bridge and the Hungerford Bridges to name but a few. Yet in this stunning new book, Neil Davenport explores the Thames bridges - past and present - from its source in Gloucestershire out to the North Sea. His many images are supported by additional information on Acts of Parliament, Thames authorities and Highway and Bridge authorities. The river Thames has a rich history and its bridges are very much a part of this. These include the Radcot Bridge. Dating from 1154, the three arch masonry bridge is the oldest remaining bridge across the Thames today. Moving in an upstream order, the author presents road, rail and footbridges. In total the main stream is crossed by 180 bridges. Given the stretches where it is divided into two or more streams and allowing for islands, the total number of bridges to cross the Thames is almost double this figure.The bridges vary greatly in size, appearance and date but they embody almost all of the architectural and structural techniques for bridge building so far. Their structure and architecture is supported by illustrations and drawings old and new from a variety of sources. This book includes the 2002 Hungerford Bridges, making it the most up-to-date authority on the subject, and a highly enjoyable book for anyone who has lived along the river or who has a particular affection for/memory of any of the bridges, past or present.

Foreign Investment, International Law and Common Concerns (Routledge Research in International Economic Law)

Increasingly, transnational corporations, developed countries and private actors are broadening the boundaries of their investments into new territories, in search of a higher return on capital. This growth in direct foreign investment involves serious concerns for both the investor and host state. Various exponents of international civil society and non-governmental organisations persuasively claim that such growth in foreign investments constitutes potential and serious hazards both to the environment and the fundamental rights and freedoms of local populations.

This book explores from an international law perspective the complex relationship between foreign investments and common concerns, i.e. values that do not coincide, or do not necessarily coincide, with the interests of the investor and of the host state. It pays particular attention to the role of the main international development banks in reconciling the needs of foreign investors with the protection of common concerns, such as the environment, human rights and labour rights. Among its collection of essays, the volume asks how much 'regulatory space' investment law leaves: whether international investment law is an effective means of balancing contrasting interests, and whether investment arbitration currently constitutes a mechanism of global governance.

In collecting the outlooks of various experts in human rights, environmental and international economic law, this book breaks new ground in exploring how attention to its legal aspects may help in navigating the relationship between foreign investment and common concerns. In doing so, the book provides valuable insights into the substantive issues and institutional aspects of international investment law.

Excerpt from book: CHAPTER III THE PURPOSE OF WOMANHOOD In due course we shall have to discuss the little that is yet known and to discuss the much that is asserted by both sides, for this or that end, regarding the differences between men and women. By this we mean, of course, the natural as distinguished from the nur- tural differences—:to use the antithetic terms so usefully adapted by Sir Francis Galton from Shakespeare. Our task, we shall soon discover, is not an easy one: because it is rarely easy to disentangle the effects of nature from those of nurture, all the phenomena, physical and psychical, of all living creatures being not the sum but the product of these two factors. The sharp allotment of this or that feature to nature or to nurture alone is therefore always wholly wrong: and the nice estimation of the relative importance of the natural as compared with the nurtural factors must necessarily be difficult, especially for the case of mankind, where critical observation, on a large scale, and with due control, of the effects of environment upon natural potentialities is still lacking. But here, at least, we may unhesitatingly declare and insist upon, and shall hereafter invariably argue from, the one indisputable and all-important distinction between man and woman. We must not committhe error of regarding this distinction as qualitative so much as quantitative: by which is meant that it really is neither more nor less than a difference in the proportions of two kinds of vital expenditure. Nor must we commit the still graver error of asserting, without qualification, that such and such, and that only, is the ideal of womanhood, and that all women who do not conform to this type are morbid, or, at least, abnormal. It takes all sorts to make a world, we must remember. Further, the ...

Baby's Blues

Susan is a career woman with a seemingly perfect life, complete with sensitive husband and a brand new bundle of joy on the way. Beginning at the moment a very pregnant Susan goes into labor, the play follows her journey as she becomes a new mother, with a frighteningly inexplicable newborn to care for. Employing both realistic and surrealistic elements, BABY'S BLUES explores one woman's descent into postpartum depression, but also brings into focus the difficult challenge of becoming a mother for the first time, as well as the fine line that sometimes exists between health and madness. 'BABY'S BLUES makes a strong impact through powerful dialogue ... It takes an emotional dilemma and winds it tighter and tighter and tighter to a wrenching peak, leaving us vibrating with the final impact ... BABY'S BLUES has undoubted immediacy.' -Christopher Rawson, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette 'Tammy Ryan's fiercely emotional and darkly disquieting play takes a frank and sympathetic look at one mother's descent into serious psychosis brought on by the birth of her first child. Ryan works overtime to keep the story real yet understandable. It's a tensely orchestrated hundred minute journey unrelieved by intermission, yet there are moments of humor and irony.' -Alice T Carter, Tribune Review

The Writings of James Russell Lowell : The old English dramatists. 1895 Volume 12

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1895 edition. Excerpt: ...To uphold that falsehood: sacred innocence Is fled your bosom. Signior, I must tell you, To draw the picture of nnkindness truly Is to express two that have dearly loved And fall'n at variance: 't is a wonder to me, Knowing my interest in the fair Jolenta, That you should love her. Ere. Compare her beauty and my youth together And you will find the fair effects of love No miracle at all.' They fight, and both fall mortally wounded, as it is supposed. Ercole is reported dead, and Contarino dying, having first made a will in favor of Jolenta. Romelio, disguised as a Jew, to avenge the injury to himself in the death of Ercole, and to make sure that Contarino shall not survive to alter his will, gets admission to him by bribing his surgeons, and stabs him. This saves his life by reopening the old wound and letting forth its virus. Of course both he and Ercole recover, and both conceal themselves, though why, it is hard to say, except that they are not wanted again till towards the end of the play. Romelio, unaware of his mother's passion for Contarino, tells her, as a piece of good news she will be glad to hear, of what he has done. She at once resolves on a most horrible and unnatural revenge. Her speech has a kind of savage grandeur in it which Webster was fond of showing, for he rightly felt that it was his strongest quality, though it often tempted him too far, till it became bestial in its ferocity. It is to be observed that he was on his guard here, and gives us a hint, as you will see, in a highly imaginative passage, that Leonora's brain was turning:--' I will make you chief mourner, believe it. Never was woe like mine. O, that my care And absolute study to preserve his life Should be his absolute ruin! Is he gone, then? There is no plague i'...

The Forum, Vol. 45: January, 1911 June, 1911 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Forum, Vol. 45: January, 1911 June, 1911

'The Revelations of Devout and Learn'd
Who rose before us, and as Prophets Burn'd,
Are all but stories, which, awoke from Sleep,
They told their comrades, and to Sleep return'd.'

The history of civilization is a history of wandering, sword in hand, in search of food. In the misty younger world we catch glimpses of phantom races, rising, slaying, finding food, building rude civilizations, decaying, falling under the swords of stronger hands, and passing utterly away. Man, like any other animal, has roved over the earth seeking what he might devour: and not romance and adventure, but the hunger-need, has urged him on his vast adventures. Whether a bankrupt gentleman sailing to colonize Virginia or a lean Cantonese contracting to labor on the sugar plantations of Hawaii, in each case, gentleman and coolie, it is a desperate attempt to get something to eat, to get more to eat than he can get at home.

It has always been so, from the time of the first pre-human anthropoid crossing a mountain-divide in quest of better berry-bushes beyond, down to the latest Slovack, arriving on our shores to-day, to go to work in the coal mines of Pennsylvania. These migratory movements of peoples have been called drifts, and the word is apposite.

Defences in Contemporary International Criminal Law (International and Comparative Criminal Law)

In an area of law so thoroughly politicized, culturally freighted and passionately punitive, there is need for an extraordinary measure of protection for the accused if we are to pay more than lip service to justice. Defenses in Contemporary International Criminal Law ventures farther into this uneasy territory than any previous work, offering a meticulous analysis of the case law in the post World War II Military Tribunals and the ad hoc tribunals for Rwanda and the Former Yugoslavia, with particular attention to the defenses developed, their rationales, and their origins in various municipal systems. It analyzes the defense provisions in the charters and statutes underlying these tribunals and the new International Criminal Court. Dr. Knoops' conceptual reach not only includes the defenses recognized in the field's jurisprudence and scholarship (superior orders, duress, self-defense, insanity, necessity, immunity of States) but also presents a strong case for the incorporation of genetic and neurobiological data into the working assets of the international criminal defense attorney.

Letting Go: A Memoir

Kelley has two passions –: her children and world peace –: so when her first-born decides to join the army during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, she is torn between her commitment to non-violence and her devoted role as mother. Letting Go tells the story of an every day woman, who won't let the debilitating chronic migraines that have inflicted her since childhood interfere with her innate sense of social justice and her passion for world peace through love. When she gets pregnant while in college, however, she puts her ambitions on hold to devote herself as a mother. The physical pain she has endured for so long coupled with the emotional stress she feels over her son's venture into military life nearly take her life as she struggles to find the balance between her idealistic fight for world peace and her daily battle for inner peace.

Hollywood Legend: The Johnny Duncan Story

In 'Hollywood Legend: The Johnny Duncan Story,' Johnny Duncan and author Richard Lester take the reader on a journey from a depression-era farm in Missouri, to Hollywood during the golden age of the movie studios, and then back to the family home in Missouri. Johnny Duncan still remembers walking to school barefoot in worn jeans, as his parents struggled to avoid losing their farm and going to 'the poor house.' Against all odds, Johnny turned an Irish two-step into polished dance routines that would wow Vaudeville and attract the attention of Hollywood talent scouts. Shortly after arriving in Hollywood as a teenager, Johnny found himself cast in movies with June Carlson, Humphrey Bogart, Spencer Tracy, Jimmy Cagney, and Marlon Brando. As an adult, he lived next to Audie Murphy, his weekend hunting companion. Johnny's big break came in 1949 when he was cast as Robin in the serial adventures of Batman Robin. More movie roles followed, and then he started appearing on the new medium of television. Johnny's story will thrill and amaze all who love movies and the iconic stars who made them. He was there, working and socializing with them, and his memories are destined to become a fascinating addition to the history of Hollywood.

Embracing Christian Spirituality with Emotional Core Therapy

In my new book on spirituality I demonstrate how Christians can incorporate the most effective, scientifically proven psychology approach available worldwide to treat relationship stress, gain peace, happiness,and stay spiritually centered. What can we do every day to stay spiritually centered with Christ? Learn to release stress. See below. EMOTIONAL CORE THERAPY AND THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD As you begin the journey to understand the Emotional Core Therapy process please keep in mind the scientific method. The scientific method is a process for creating models of the natural world that can be verified experimentally. The scientific method requires making observations, recording data, and analyzing data in a form that can be duplicated by other scientists. The subject of a scientific experiment has to be observable and reproducible. Observations may be made with the unaided eye or any other apparatus suitable for detecting the desired phenomenon. The apparatus for making a scientific observation has to be comprised of well-known scientific principles. The scientific method requires that theories be testable. If a theory cannot be tested, it cannot be a scientific theory. The scientific method requires and relies on direct evidence. This means evidence that can be directly observed and tested. Scientific experiments are designed to be repeated by other scientists and to demonstrate unequivocally the point they are trying to prove by controlling all the factors that could influence the results. Source (Scientificpsychic.com/Scientific Method) Here are the four steps to the scientific method and the Emotional Core Therapy process. 1). Observation made both visually and with scientific equipment Stress affects both the mind and body. There exists a cause and effect relationship with stress. Oftentimes this stress can be uncomfortable for humans. 2) Formulation of a hypothesis to explain the phenomenon in the form of a causal mechanism/method/approach. Many psychology methods (REBT, CBT, ACT, DBT, etc.), religious approaches (Buddhism, 12 steps, etc.), and educational programs (Smart Recovery) have attempted to fully and completely explain via a model, how this cause and effect relationship with stress occurs. Up until this point in time, we have not had a model in the world that can successfully depict how this stress occurs each and every time. To their credit, many of these methods partially work and have contributed greatly to humanity. See Wiki.com for information on all the psychology methods and techniques mentioned in this book. With the invention/discovery of Emotional Core Therapy (ECT) we now have a psychology method that accurately can depict this causal relationship between stress and humans through my Eight Step Emotional Core Therapy Flowchart. With ECT, we now have a psychology approach that identifies and treats the root cause of psychological stress. The root cause is the temporary arousal of one of the four true emotions (joy, grief, fear, and relief). ECT also shares and borrows many psychological techniques from the aforementioned approaches. 3) Test the hypothesis. I have tested the Eight Step Flowchart thousands of times in many venues including my clinical practice as well as training other professionals. The ECT process works accurately to depict the situational stress affecting humans. Anytime someone experiences psychological stress, aspects of each of the eight steps of the Emotional Core Therapy Flowchart will be utilized and affected. Why does this phenomenon happen when one experiences stress? The Emotional Core Therapy process highlights and identifies the key components of the root cause of stress. Anyone can test the model which is utilized extensively in this book. 4) Establish a theory based on repeated verification of the results. Billions of people suffering relationship stress can be helped by Emotional Core Therapy. Learn to love Jesus and release stress with this new book.

Black Beauty: Aesthetics, Stylization, Politics

Previous work discussing Black beauty has tended to concentrate on Black women's search for white beauty as a consequence of racialization. Without denying either the continuation of such aesthetics or their enduring power, this book uncovers the cracks in this hegemonic Black beauty. Drawing on detailed ethnographic research amongst British women of Caribbean heritage, this volume pursues a broad discussion of beauty within the Black diaspora contexts of the Caribbean, the UK, the United States and Latin America through different historical periods to the present day. With a unique exploration of beauty, race and identity politics, the author reveals how Black women themselves speak about, negotiate, inhabit, work on and perform Black beauty. As such, it will appeal not only to sociologists, but anyone working in the fields of race, ethnicity and post-colonial thought, feminism and the sociology of the body.

The Eddie Cochran Story: Three Steps to Heaven

(Book). Outrageously talented, remarkably handsome, internationally renowned, and dead at the age of 21. More than 40 years after the tragic car crash that killed him, Eddie Cochran remains one of rock and roll's most lamented 'What Ifs.' A trailblazing guitarist, gifted vocalist, hit-making composer and arranger, and budding whiz-kid producer, Cochran quickly ascended from Midwestern obscurity in the late '50s to become one of nascent rock and roll's leading lights. He penned or recorded many of the most recognized songs in rock history 'Summertime Blues,' 'Nervous Breakdown,' 'Somethin' Else,' 'C'mon Everybody,' 'Twenty Flight Rock,' 'Sittin' in the Balcony' songs whose distinctive sound and defiant, often wryly humorous lyrics have been eagerly digested, analyzed and lovingly reinterpreted by generations of rockers after him, from The Beatles to the Sex Pistols, The Who to U2. Three Steps to Heaven: The Eddie Cochran Story co-authored by Cochran's nephew, also a gifted musician is the first American biography of this uniquely American rock legend, who was among the first to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The book is a detailed portrait of Cochran's personal and professional triumphs and travails, with fascinating insight into the rock pioneer's life that only a family member can provide. 33 B/W photographs: Pdf.

The Knights Templar and the Protestant Reformation

We are quickly approaching the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation which by 'most' accounts began in 1517 with Martin Luther's 95 Theses and was completed (or ended) in 1648 with the Treaty of Westphalia. Moreover we are also approaching the 700th anniversary of the end of the Knights Templar with the burning at the stake of the last Templar Grand Master Jacques de Molay in 1314. So what better time to review both as they interrelate to one another? Did you know that 'pre-Protestants' such as the Waldensians were being burned at the stake 300 years before Martin Luther's 95 theses? Did you know that the Knights Templar and their mysterious disappearance most likely played a role in the protection/germination of the seeds that would lead to Protestantism? As my Masters of History thesis I was told to tackle a 'challenging' subject that might even go against the 'status quo' of established historicity: not only have I attempted to do this, but I was dumbfounded by some of the discoveries I have found along the way linking the Knights Templar to Protestantism 200 years earlier than Martin Luther. *Even more awakening is how applicable and necessary many of these 'monk-like' themes are today in our increasingly post-Christian world. 'The restoration of the church must surely depend on a new kind of monasticism, which has nothing in common with the old but a life of uncompromising discipleship, following Christ according to the Sermon on the Mount. I believe the time has come to gather people together to do this.' - Dietrich Bonhoeffer James Stroud has undergraduate studies in both History and Religious Studies as well as post graduate studies in Theology/History at APUS, Trinity Seminary, Biola and the University of Arkansas.

A social history drawn from primary sources, this book chronicles, in comprehensive detail, the story of American women from 1900 to 1920, the period known as the Progressive Era.

It describes the domestic lives of ordinary women, as well as their working lives, both in and out of the home.

Ferrari by Mailander

Be it a road car or racing car, no automobile can match Ferrari for sheer iconic glamour and excitement. One man had unique access to the company, its people and its products during the years from 1950 to 1955 when Ferrari surged from a brash newcomer to a dominant force in Grand Prix and sports cars. Rodolfo Mailander here presents his intimate portraits of this stirring era with the help of his friend Karl Ludvigsen, whose world famous Library holds the Mailander archive. Enhancing appreciation of Rodolfo Mailanders insightful images is commentary by the photographer himself and by Ludvigsen, who has been a friend of Mailander for almost 50 years. Both men contribute introductions that set the scene for this story of the formative years of one of the greatest automotive marques. A treat for the Ferrari enthusiast is a tabulation of serial numbers of the cars illustrated, provided by renowned Ferrari expert Marcel Massini.

The 2016 Report on Heavyweight On-Highway Touring Motorcycles: World Market Segmentation by City

This report was created for global strategic planners who cannot be content with traditional methods of segmenting world markets. With the advent of a 'borderless world', cities become a more important criteria in prioritizing markets, as opposed to regions, continents, or countries. This report covers the top 2000 cities in over 200 countries. It does so by reporting the estimated market size (in terms of latent demand) for each major city of the world. It then ranks these cities and reports them in terms of their size as a percent of the country where they are located, their geographic region (e.g. Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East, North America, Latin America), and the total world market.

In performing various economic analyses for its clients, I have been occasionally asked to investigate the market potential for various products and services across cities. The purpose of the studies is to understand the density of demand within a country and the extent to which a city might be used as a point of distribution within its region. From an economic perspective, however, a city does not represent a population within rigid geographical boundaries. To an economist or strategic planner, a city represents an area of dominant influence over markets in adjacent areas. This influence varies from one industry to another, but also from one period of time to another.

In what follows, I summarize the economic potential for the world's major cities for 'heavyweight on-highway touring motorcycles' for the year 2016. The goal of this report is to report my findings on the real economic potential, or what an economist calls the latent demand, represented by a city when defined as an area of dominant influence. The reader needs to realize that latent demand may or may not represent real sales. For many items, latent demand is clearly observable in sales, as in the case for food or housing items. Consider,

A Teacher's Guide to Understanding the Trinity

Why is the doctrine of the Trinity important? Is it just one more thing to memorize and forget about later, or is it something much more?This concise, in-depth book explores this seemingly elusive doctrine, its history, and its meaning to the life of faith. With exceptional insight and scholarly precision, Samuel Powell brings this doctrine into sharp focus and demonstrates that more than an ancient relic of the church, the doctrine of the Trinity is woven into the fabric of almost everything Christians believe. At the very nexus of salvation, the Trinity is a stirring and poignant model for love and relationship within community.

Innovation Acceptance: The Case of Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems

Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) provide the opportunity to increase road safety and driving comfort. Reviewing existing empirical work on comparable innovations, Patrick Planing derives potential acceptance constructs, which together with the results of thirty-two semi-structured interviews, have constituted the basis for a survey instrument that was consequently administered to a sample of over 400 participants from the target population. The resulting regression model shows that perceived safety and comfort benefits are most decisive for the acceptance of ADAS, while desire to exert control was found to most strongly support resistance to this technology.

Tag Man (Joe Gunther Mysteries)

'Archer Mayor's Vermont police procedurals are the best thing going...' New York Times Book Review

Across Brattleboro, Vermont, rich people (some with dark secrets) are waking up in their high security, alarm-equipped homes to find a Post-it note stuck to their bedside tables reading, 'You're it.' There is little sign of disturbance anywhere, nothing stolen (that anyone admits, ) and only a bit of expensive food eaten as a signature. The Press loves the story and dubs the burglar the Tag Man.

But who is he? And what's he actually doing? In fact, he's quickly running for his life, for what he discovers in one of these houses appears to be proof of a heinous string of murders. But is it? Joe Gunther, struggling to recover from a devastating personal loss, leads his VBI team to untangle the many conflicting pieces of evidence, while the burglar himself struggles for survival in the no-man's-land between the police and the villains. With no one knowing what to believe, or who to trust, with Tag Man running for his life in a way he never imagined possible, as no one knows who's watching as they sleep, or who truly did what, the Tag Man is critically acclaimed author Archer Mayor at his very finest.

The Almighty King: New translations of forgotten manuscripts finally reveal the truth about the not so Virgin Mary, the Holy Grail and the Bloodline of Jesus Christ

What is the truth behind the story of the Immaculate Conception? Where did Jesus go during the ‘:Lost Years’: and who exactly was his mortal father? The Almighty King sets out to answer these puzzling questions, questions that have baffled the greatest of religious historians for almost two thousand years. Backed by meticulous and groundbreaking research, this remarkable reassessment of the history of Christ delivers on all its promises, with the reader being drawn directly into the investigative process. As any good detective knows, evidence is most effectively evaluated by stepping back, and when the classic Christian picture is augmented by the lost secrets of the Ancient Welsh manuscripts, this approach reaps staggering rewards. Now, for the first time in history, a viable name has been assigned to the real Almighty King and the whole truth about the life of Jesus is at last available for all to see.

Guide to High Definition Video Production, The: Preparing for a Widescreen World

The REBO Guide to High Definition Video Production is the first and only book on high definition video to focus on production, not politics. It's a practical book about what it really takes to produce programming in high definition video starting from the very earliest days of production right on out to the most up-to-date techniques and equipment.

Given the inevitability of the widescreen market acceptance of some form of high-resolution, widescreen video transmission, film and video production professionals will find the book's emphasis on the real-life issues involved in using high definition in film-style and live, multi-camera productions invaluable in `Preparing for a Widescreen World'.

The book is organized into sections based on the major components of a production--from Production through Post Production, Engineering, Creative Considerations--and includes the experiences, insights, and anecdotes of some of the most experienced High Definition producers, directors, DPs, and engineers in the world. The Guide...was written to appeal to people with various levels of technical knowledge. It includes an introductory section on video technology, anecdotal non-technical case studies, and the hard-core technical information that producers and engineers need to know to get their jobs done.

REBO has led the way in field-testing new equipment and ground-breaking applications for all aspects of high definition video technology since 1986. The company remains the only independent concern in the world involved in every aspect of high definition from production, post production, and programming through education, to research and applied technology development. Each year REBO is recognized internationally by a diverse body of professionals for its achievements. Accolades include the Prix du Court Metrage award for Best Fiction Short at the Cannes International Film Festival: special recognition from NASA for the first high definition videotaping of the shuttle launch: and, for six straight years, the highest awards at the International Electronic Cinema Festival in Montreux and Tokyo.

Lessons of My Life (Classic Reprint)

The world is a comedy to those that think, a tragedy to those who feel. Horace Walpole. Horace Walpole only said that because even he was insular. For mainlanders Hfe has become all tragedy, and it is high time that the reasons were realised. I have written this book because I have something to say on that. Dr. Johnson was surely wrong in affirming that no man but a blockhead ever wrote, except for money :on the other hand we all write to be read, to please more than we vex, though some people ought to be vexed. We have had as much as we can afford of those resolved to ruin or to rule the state. I have therefore thought it opportune to collect a small and preliminary instalment of the lessons that I have learned in a long course of service. I hope that no one will be put off if I write of them with feeling. Contrary to our most cherished tradition there is no merit in being a fish. I remember a comment appended by Lord Balfour to one of my early and eager memoranda :T ome the chief interest of this subject is the passion which it appears to excite in the breasts of otherwise honest men. It is at least not my intention to stir up any cuttle-fish disputants. My purpose has been to write a collection of chapters that need not even be read consecutively though it is desirable to do so, for they lead in due order to a series of linked conclusions and to let each of them converge on our greatest problem. I write with experience in pohtics but without pretensions in Uterature. I have definite views in the first field. My impressions in the second are those of a plain man jotted down at intervals in lifes journey, and shared, I think, by other plain men, who can now see how they fitted the po Htical puzzle. That of course is now though not always at the time, their chief interest to me. I hope that the combination may seem equally clear to my readers. Anyone can any

Briefwechsel mit Daniel Bernoulli (Leonhard Euler, Opera Omnia)

Im Jahre 1727 ging der erst zwanzigjä:hrige Leonhard Euler an die neu gegrü:ndete Akademie der Wissenschaften in St. Petersburg, vermittelt durch seinen Basler Lehrer Johann I Bernoulli und dessen Sohn Daniel (1700–:1782), der dort bereits wirkte. Eulers Briefwechsel mit Daniel Bernoulli intensivierte sich, als dieser 1733 nach Basel zurü:ckkehrte, und wurde auch nach Eulers Wechsel an die Berliner Akademie im Jahre 1741 fortgesetzt. Im Zusammenhang mit der Publikation von Johann Bernoullis :Hydraulik :1742 und mit einem Preisausschreiben der Berliner Akademie 1746 kam es zu Spannungen: zwischen 1750 und 1767 wurden nur noch wenige Briefe ausgetauscht, meist vermittelt durch Bernoullis Bruder Johann II und dessen Sohn Johann III. Mit Eulers Rü:ckkehr nach Russland und der von ihm vermittelten Wiederherstellung von Daniel Bernoullis Verhä:ltnis zur Petersburger Akademie wurde die Korrespondenz wieder aufgenommen –: zunehmend durch Eulers Sohn Johann Albrecht und seinen aus Basel stammenden Assistenten Niklaus Fuss.

Die insgesamt 191 Briefe dieser Korrespondenzen und einige dazugehö:rige Dokumente –: darunter Daniel Bernoullis kurze Autobiographie von 1776 –: werden hier zum Teil erstmals verö:ffentlicht: mit Ü:bersetzungen vieler Stü:cke in modernes Deutsch, Kommentaren zu den darin angesprochenen Fragestellungen –: vor allem aus Physik und Astronomie –: und einem ausfü:hrlichen Registerteil. Der Band bietet wesentliche Einblicke in die Biographien zweier grosser Wissenschafter und in das akademische Leben ihrer Zeit.

-----

In 1727 Leonhard Euler, at the age of twenty, joined the recently founded Imperial Russian Academy of Sciences: his appointment had been negotiated by his teacher Johann I Bernoulli at Basel and Johann's son Daniel (1700–:1782), who already worked at St. Petersburg. Euler's correspondence with Daniel Bernoulli intensified when Bernoulli returned to Basel in 1733 and was continued after Euler's move to Berlin in 1741. In the context of the publication of Johann Bernoulli's :Hydraulics :(1742) and a prize competition of the Berlin Academy in 1746 tension arose between the two: from 1750 to 1767 only few letters were exchanged, most of them by Daniel's brother Johann II and nephew Johann III acting as intermediaries. After Euler's return to Russia and the re-establishment of Daniel Bernoulli's membership in the Petersburg Academy that he mediated, the correspondence was resumed, now increasingly through Euler's son Johann Albrecht and his Basel-born assistant Niklaus Fuss.

The 191 letters of these correspondences and some related documents –: including Daniel Bernoulli's short autobiography from 1776 –: are being edited here, partly for the first time: with German translations of many pieces, commentaries on the physical and astronomical topics addressed in the letters, and extensive indices.

The volume offers important insights into the biographies of two great scientists and into the academic life of their time.

The Free World

Welcome to Rome. It is the summer of 1978, and the Krasnansky family, bickering, tired and confused, are supposed to be passing through. Alongside thousands of other Soviet Jewish refugees - among them criminals, dissidents and refuseniks - they await passage to their new homes in the West. But escaping Communism is not so easy, especially when some of the Krasnanskys insist on bringing it with them, and even more so when their sponsor in the USA lets them down and they find that they're no longer passing through at all. On the contrary, they're stuck.

Welcome, then, to the waiting room of your life, and to a tragic yet comic tale of reckless brothers and long-suffering sisters, ailing parents and innocent children, of love affairs and criminal liaisons, of a wonderfully troubled family and a perpetually wandering people, and their epic search for a home: somewhere, anywhere - or Canada, as it turns out.

The New Testament in the Original Greek: Volume 1 (Cambridge Library Collection - Biblical Studies)

The publication in 1881 of The New Testament in the Original Greek, by the Cambridge scholars Brooke Foss Westcott (1825–:1901) and Fenton John Anthony Hort (1828–:1892), marked the culmination of twenty-eight years of work and an innovation in the theory and methods of New Testament textual criticism. This first of two volumes contains a detailed discussion of the theories and methods behind the reconstructed text, sets out the editors' theory of text-types, and justifies their choice to break with the dominant use of the Textus Receptus. It argues for the Neutral Text, represented by the uncials Codex Vaticanus and Codex Sinaiticus, as being the earliest and least corrupt form. Westcott and Hort's claim to reconstruct the 'original text' may seem extravagant today but according to Bruce Metzger theirs was the 'most noteworthy critical edition of the Greek Testament ever produced by British scholarship'.

Beyond Sputnik: U.S. National Science Policy in the Twenty-first Century

This is the indispensable survey of U.S. national science policy: key players, concepts, and processes. It lays out the requirements for maintaining American scientific and technological preeminence into the 21st century. Science and technology are responsible for almost every advance in our modern quality of life. Yet science isn't just about laboratories, telescopes and particle accelerators. Public policy exerts a huge impact on how the scientific community conducts its work. ''Beyond Sputnik'' is a comprehensive survey of the field, for use as an introductory textbook in courses and a reference guide for lawmakers, scientists, journalists and advocates seeking to understand the science policymaking process. A series of detailed case studies in each chapter - on topics from cloning and stem cell research to homeland security and science education - offer readers the opportunity to study real instances of policymaking at work. Authors and experts Homer Neal, Tobin Smith and Jennifer McCormick propose practical ways to implement sound public policy in science and technology, and highlight how these policies will guide the results of scientific discovery for years to come.

Grammarians and Grammatical Theory in the Medieval Arabic Tradition (Variorum Collected Studies)

Professor Baalbaki deals here with the Arabic grammatical tradition and the analytical methods of the medieval Arab grammarians. The essays included open new perspectives on the most authoritative work on Arabic grammar, Sibawayhi's tome or Kitab, on the relation between grammatical study and other areas of linguistic enquiry such as Qur'anic readings and stylistics, and on the techniques which the grammarians employed to explain and rationalize usage and to incorporate within their system the vast body of dialectal material which the corpus comprises. The author has sought to highlight the central position which Arabic grammar enjoys within the wider Arab culture, and in so doing has examined several aspects of a legacy which has been revered over a millennium and which forms to this very day the backbone of the teaching of grammar in the Arab world.

In a small fishing village in Connecticut known as Watch Hill, walking on the beach at sunset has become a rather enjoyable pastime for Wayne Minor.

Suddenly, the residents begin to die one by one, as this quiet town becomes a place of terror. Everyone begins to wonder where the blooms are coming from and who is behind leaving them for the residents to find. Nobody is safe from the deadly blooms.

A grandmother of five, Laura Burke has always been a storyteller. She is writing her next novel, End of the Trail. Publisher's website: http://sbpra.com/LauraBurke

Aufbau wettbewerbsfähiger Ratingagenturen auf EU-Ebene

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich BWL - Bank, Bö:rse, Versicherung, Note: 1,3, Universitä:t Potsdam, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Ausgehend von der Subprime-Krise untersucht die Arbeit die Mö:glichkeit die dominante Marktmachtstellung der „:Big Three' durch den Aufbau wettbewerbsfä:higer Ratingagenturen auf der EU-Ebene zu entschä:rfen, um zukü:nftige Fehlentwicklungen im Ratingmarkt mit negativen Auswirkungen auf die globale Konjunkturentwicklung zu unterbinden. Das Ziel besteht darin, ein Lö:sungskonzept zu entwickeln, das eine Strategie aufzeigt auf welche Art und Weise die europä:ischen Ratingagenturen ihre Wettbewerbsfä:higkeit gegenü:ber den „:Big Three' verbessern kö:nnen. Im ersten Schritt wird die aktuelle Wettbewerbssituation auf dem Ratingmarkt analysiert, um herauszufinden inwieweit sich die Marktdominanz der „:Big Three' verä:ndert hat und worin die Ursachen fü:r ihre Dominanz zu finden sind. Im zweiten Schritt werden die Interessenkonflikte der Bezahlmodelle betrachtet, um zu erarbeiten, welche Herausforderungen sich hieraus fü:r die europä:ischen Ratingagenturen ergeben. Aus den Erkenntnissen ü:ber die Bezahlmodelle soll beurteilt werden, welches Modell fü:r die Wettbewerbsfä:higkeit der europä:ischen Ratingagenturen besser geeignet ist. Im dritten Schritt werden die gesetzlichen Rahmenbedingungen und Regularien auf dem Ratingmarkt thematisiert. Daraus soll deutlich werden, welche regulatorischen Herausforderungen sich fü:r die Ratingagenturen auf der EU-Ebene ergeben. Aus den erarbeiteten Erkenntnissen soll mittels einer theoretisch-konzeptionellen Untersuchung ein Lö:sungskonzept als Ergebnis erstellt werden. Dieses Lö:sungskonzept soll beschreiben wie es den europä:ischen Ratingagenturen gelingen kö:nnte an Wettbewerbsfä:higkeit gegenü:ber den drei etablierten Ratingagenturen zu gewinnen, um deren Marktmachtstellung zu entschä:rfen.

Skyemist: A Cat

SkyeMist was a beautiful tortoise-seal point mixture with pale blue eyes. She came from the pound when she was six months old. She passed away when she was only nine. Like most Siamese, she started out almost white and grew darker as she aged. She was a thinking cat, as opposed to an intuitive cat. She vanished when strangers came in, but she was not shy at home. She was smart and ornery. But, when she would see a dripping cat go by outside in the rain, she was glad to be warm at home. She was glad to be part of a family. M. E. Powell has a college BA in History/Humanities. She works and reads a lot. She has spent around fifty years with cats. She resides in Long Beach, California.
