Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Global Shift is - quite simply - the definitive work on economic globalization. The extensive use of graphics, lack of jargon, and clear definition of terms has made it the standard work for the social sciences. The Seventh Edition has been completely updated using the latest available sources. It maps the changing centres of gravity of the global economy and explains the global financial crisis. Each chapter has been extensively rewritten and new material introduced to explain the most recent empirical developments; ideas on production, distribution, consumption; and corporate governance. Global Shift provides: * The most comprehensive and up-to-date explanation of economic globalization available, examining the role of transnational corporations, states, labour, consumers, organizations in civil society, and the power relations between them. * A clear guide to how the global economy is being transformed through the operation of global production networks involving transnational corporations, states, interest groups and technolog. * Extended discussion of problems and institutions of global governance in the context of the global economic crisis and of the role of corporate social responsibility. * A suite of extensive online ancillaries for both students and lecturers, including author videos, case studies, lecture notes, and free access to specially selected journal articles related to each chapter. There is only one definitive guide to economic globalization for the social sciences: Peter Dicken's Global Shift is it.

Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

We are living in a .com world. The old rules are changing, but it is not yet clear what the new rules are. Everything is in flux, and the speed and complexity of the changes are difficult for many of us to absorb. Futurists, historians, and social scientists tell us the transition to a networked economy is the biggest shift in the way the world functions since the Industrial Revolution. The people working today are the bridge generation, spanning the gap between the old and new ways of doing business. The business and professional world is working feverishly to learn how to change its business strategies to capitalize on this .com world. A great deal of attention is directed at the external business issues of designing, marketing, selling, and delivering goods and services in the networked environment. But the internal infrastructure and culture changes that are needed to deliver on those new business strategies have received very little attention so far. Culture.com tackles the question of how to create a corporate culture that matches the new .com business strategy. It explains how a company' s internal culture must adapt to complement, support, and be properly aligned with the organization's external business strategy. And it shows how failure to adapt can undermine, or even destroy, a company's ability to carry out its objectives. Culture.com is a highly practical guide to the pressing corporate culture issues that face every e--business, from .com start--ups to traditional organizations making the transition into the clicks--and--mortar world. * Explains the 9 key characteristics of a .com culture that are vital for all organizations. * Offers practical tips and strategies to ensure that your corporate culture can be a competitive advantage, rather than a liability, in the .com world. * Provides hands--on advice on changing your corporate culture to reflect the new realities of e--business: debugging on the fly, rapid risk taking and decision making, developing a culture of collaboration, building corporate culture in virtual organizations, and much more. * Shows how to break old organizational habits that no longer fit in the world of e--business, and how to learn now ways to think, believe, and behave. * Features examples and interviews from a wide range of companies, government settings, and not--for--profits. Praise for Culture.com "What a simple, yet profound, understanding of culture! This is a wise, practical and important guide in navigating todaya s a dot coma whitewater world." -- Dr. Stephen R. Covey, the author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People "At last someone has paid attention to that most powerful force called a culturea at just the right time. As has always been the case, either we manage culture or it manages us. As we go deeper into this new world of bricks and clicks, it is imperative that we rededicate ourselves to the creation and survival of exceptional business cultures." -- Jim Hammock, CEO and Chairman, Hire.com "Fast--paced and readable, Culture.com combines examples from successful .com companies with practical tips to guide executives struggling to build lasting corporations in the virtual settings of the global economy. The authors are well ahead of most business school research." -- David O. Porter, Professor of Management and former Dean, School of Management, University of Alaska, Fairbanks; Founding Director of the Idaho Department of Commerce "Competing in the e--business world requires companies to shape their corporate culture to implement their business strategies. The authors of Culture.com have recognized this reality and provide practical tips, real--world stories, and smart guidance vital to executives, managers, and employees alike." -- J.W. Marriott, Jr., Chairman and CEO, Marriott International "Culture.com is a much--needed, practical, and complete guide to help companies make the transition in todaya s workplace in order to survive and succeed. Focusing on the use of every individuala s creative power, talents, and experience has been lacking, is needed, and this book shows the way." -- John D. Baker, President, John D. Baker & Associates, and retired Vice President, Commercial, Mars, Inc. "With the speed and complexity of the business environment today, Culture.com is a lighthouse beacon offering direction out of the fog and uncertainty. It provides all of us who are journeying to new places a solid bearing and sage advice to chart a safe course." -- Janice Wismer, Vice President, Human Resources, Canadian Tire Retail "No matter where you are in an organization, or who you work for, having a a livinga corporate culture in place that supports the values of what you believe in--and is demonstrated every day in your actions--is key to the degree of your success. It is the deciding factor between just succeeding, and being great. Developing and living those values that are at the core of your culture, is the challenge we all face. It requires continuous learning and change. Culture.com can help you with this." -- Bruce Freeman, Vice President and Information Officer, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway

Photoshop CC and Lightroom rocky nook
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom are central to almost all photographic workflows. Each new version of the software is a milestone in the development of these vital imaging tools, and the 2014 releases are no exception. Photographers often feel overwhelmed when starting with Photoshop; the sheer number of tools and options make it difficult for the novice and intermediate user alike. There is no shortage of instructional books, yet very few direct the user to the most significant aspects of the program in a way that reflects a real workflow for the photographer. Adobe Certified Instructor Steve Laskevitch has leveraged his experience as a teacher and practitioner to create a guide that provides a clear and effective workflow for editing photographs in the 2014 release of Photoshop CC and its companions Bridge, Camera Raw, and Lightroom 5. Focusing on the critical elements of a workflow rather than covering every arcane feature, this book is designed to get you working quickly in these applications. Along the way, the various applications are presented side-by-side so that a user of one may learn how to use the other: a kind of workflow Rosetta Stone. Or, if you're new to it all, this book will be your roadmap, helping you decide which way to go. In addition to the essential features of these programs, Laskevitch covers new features specific to the new releases, including: Lightroom mobile Dramatically improved RAW image processing, including the new Radial Filter and retouching of irregular shapes Photoshop's Improved Blur Gallery (Tilt-Shift, Iris, Field. and Radial Blur tools), Add selective focus, and bokeh effects Recomposing or retouching photos with even more content-aware editing and retouching tools Automatic straightening of image content Camera shake reduction Improved perspective correction Broader video support

Trust for Intelligent Recommendation Springer, Berlin
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Recommender systems are one of the recent inventions to deal with the ever-growing information overload in relation to the selection of goods and services in a global economy. Collaborative Filtering (CF) is one of the most popular techniques in recommender systems. The CF recommends items to a target user based on the preferences of a set of similar users known as the neighbors, generated from a database made up of the preferences of past users. In the absence of these ratings, trust between the users could be used to choose the neighbor for recommendation making. Better recommendations can be achieved using an inferred trust network which mimics the real world friend of a friend recommendations. To extend the boundaries of the neighbor, an effective trust inference technique is required. §This book proposes a trust interference technique called Directed Series Parallel Graph (DSPG) that has empirically outperformed other popular trust inference algorithms, such as TidalTrust and MoleTrust. For times when reliable explicit trust data is not available, this book outlines a new method called SimTrust for developing trust networks based on a user s interest similarity. To identify the interest similarity, a user s personalized tagging information is used. However, particular emphasis is given in what resources the user chooses to tag, rather than the text of the tag applied. The commonalities of the resources being tagged by the users can be used to form the neighbors used in the automated recommender system. Through a series of case studies and empirical results, this book highlights the effectiveness of this tag-similarity based method over the traditional collaborative filtering approach, which typically uses rating data. §Trust for Intelligent Recommendation is intended for practitioners as a reference guide for developing improved, trust-based recommender systems. Researchers in a related field will also find this book valuable.
Aspect-Oriented Software Development with Use Cases Addison-Wesley Educational Publishers Inc
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
"A refreshingly new approach toward improving use-case modeling by fortifying it with aspect orientation." -Ramnivas Laddad, author of AspectJ in Action "Since the 1980s, use cases have been a way to bring users into software design, but translating use cases into software has been an art, at best, because user goods often don't respect code boundaries. Now that aspect-oriented programming (AOP) can express crosscutting concerns directly in code, the man who developed use cases has proposed step-by-step methods for recognizing crosscutting concerns in use cases and writing the code in separate modules. If these methods are at all fruitful in your design and development practice, they will make a big difference in software quality for developers and users alike. -Wes Isberg, AspectJ team member"This book not only provides ideas and examples of what aspect-oriented software development is but how it can be utilized in a real development project." -MichaelWard, ThoughtWorks, Inc."No system has ever been designed from scratch perfectly; every system is composed of features layered in top of features that accumulate over time. Conventional design techniques do not handle this well, and over time the integrity of most systems degrades as a result. For the first time, here is a set of techniques that facilitates composition of behavior that not only allows systems to be defined in terms of layered functionality but composition is at the very heart of the approach. This book is an important advance in modern methodology and is certain to influence the direction of software engineering in the next decade, just as Object-Oriented Software Engineering influenced the last." -Kurt Bittner, IBM Corporation"Use cases are an excellent means to capture system requirements and drive a user-centric view of system development and testing. This book offers a comprehensive guide on explicit use-case-driven development from early requirements modeling to design and implementation. It provides a simple yet rich set of guidelines to realize use-case models using aspect-oriented design and programming. It is a valuable resource to researchers and practitioners alike." -Dr. Awais Rashid, Lancaster University, U.K., and author of Aspect-Oriented Database Systems "AOSD is important technology that will help developers produce better systems. Unfortunately, it has not been obvious how to integrate AOSD across a project's lifecycle. This book shatters that barrier, providing concrete examples on how to use AOSD from requirements analysis through testing." -Charles B. Haley, research fellow, The Open University, U.K. Aspect-oriented programming (AOP) is a revolutionary new way to think about software engineering. AOP was introduced to address crosscutting concerns such as security, logging, persistence, debugging, tracing, distribution, performance monitoring, and exception handling in a more effective manner. Unlike conventional development techniques, which scatter the implementation of each concern into multiple classes, aspect-oriented programming localizes them. Aspect-oriented software development (AOSD) uses this approach to create a better modularity for functional and nonfunctional requirements, platform specifics, and more, allowing you to build more understandable systems that are easier to configure and extend to meet the evolving needs of stakeholders. In this highly anticipated new book, Ivar Jacobson and Pan-Wei Ng demonstrate how to apply use cases-a mature and systematic approach to focusing on stakeholder concerns-and aspect-orientation in building robust and extensible systems. Throughout the book, the authors employ a single, real-world example of a hotel management information system to make the described theories and practices concrete and understandable. The authors show how to identify, design, implement, test, and refactor use-case modules, as well as extend them. They also demonstrate how to design use-case modules with the Unified Modeling Language (UML)-emphasizing enhancements made in UML 2.0-and how to achieve use-case modularity using aspect technologies, notably AspectJ. Key topics include * Making the case for use cases and aspects * Capturing and modeling concerns with use cases * Keeping concerns separate with use-case modules * Modeling use-cases slices and aspects using the newest extensions to the UML notation * Applying use cases and aspects in projects Whatever your level of experience with aspect-oriented programming, Aspect-Oriented Software Development with Use Cases will teach you how to develop better software by embracing the paradigm shift to AOSD.

Program Evaluation Springer, Berlin
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
This book is written to help human service program administrators either in terpret or conduct program evaluations. Our intended audience includes admin istrators and those students being trained for careers in human services administration. Our focus is on persons interested in assessing programs in which people work with people to improve their condition. The book's title, Program Evaluation: A Field Guide for Administrators, describes how we hope you use this book-as a tool. In writing the book, we have attempted to meet the needs of persons who have to conduct program evaluations as well as those who must use those evaluations. Hence, we have attempted to make the book "user friendly. " You will find, for example, numer ous guidelines, cautions, and specific suggestions. Use the book actively. Our primary motive is to help administrators make better decisions. In fact, the primary reason for program evaluation is to help program administrators make good decisions. These decisions often must balance the goals of equity (or fairness in the distribution of goods and services among people in the economy), efficiency (obtaining the most output for the least resources), and political feasi bility. Take, for example, the administrator who must decide between a new program favored by some of the program's constituents, and maintaining the status quo, which is favored by other constituents.
