Globalization is one of the characterizing patterns of the 21st century. Rapid advancements taking place worldwide have resulted in improvement of developing nations around the globe. Progression, a decrease in the cost of transportation, and innovations in this matter have led to much more convenient circumstances - that is, the movement to remote areas and work with partners living abroad has become very much easier. It´s difficult to think about any part of present-day life that globalization does not impact or touch somehow. The rising tide of globalization assumes a developing part in business, culture, nature, human relocation designs, worldwide advancement, legislative issues, and science and innovation. The numerous generous advantages of globalization incorporate higher normal livelihoods, more prominent advancement, wealthier social trades, and enhanced ways of life around the globe. This is a very condensed introduction to globalization. Want to know more about it? Listen to this audiobook, which talks about these topics: Introduction to globalization Pros and cons of globalization Impact of globalization in developed countries Examples of globalized businesses ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Andrea Jordani. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/057317de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

In The Genesis, the final volume in the Evolution River Series, humans and their descendants, the Homakuwans, struggle to rebuild after a string of meteorites destroy the ecology of the Earth causing massive extinctions. Using genetic technology, they accomplish in a century what nature does in millennia, and civilization is preserved, but almost 90% of the human population dies. They create machines to assist them that become a race of mechanical beings, Mechs. Conflict breaks out between the civilization of the United World Government and those outside of that control. The Homakuwans, learn that humanity must continue along the path that evolution has set them on, but they incorporate a novel solution to preserve the race that created them. The descendants of the descendants of humans expand their civilization into the Universe, where they grow and join the Universal Mind. New dimensions open up to them as they move beyond the physical, and they evolve again. The flow of evolution reaches its destination, and begins anew.

Propaganda has become an inescapable part of modern American society. On a daily basis, news outlets, politicians, and the entertainment industry - with motives both dubious and well-intentioned - launch propagandistic appeals. In Propaganda and American Democracy, eight writers explore various aspects of modern propaganda and its impact. Contributors include leading scholars in the field of propaganda studies: Anthony Pratkanis tackles the thorny issue of the inherent morality of propaganda; J. Michael Sproule explores the extent to which propaganda permeates the US news media; and Randal Marlin details the methods used to identify, research, and reform the use of propaganda in the public sphere. Other chapters incorporate a strong historical component. Mordecai Lee deftly analyzes the role of wartime propaganda, while Dan Kuehl provides an astute commentary on former and current practices, and Garth S. Jowett investigates how Hollywood has been used as a vehicle for propaganda. In a more personal vein, Asra Q. Nomani recounts her journalistic role in the highly calculated and tragic example of the ultimate act of anti-American propaganda perpetrated by al-Qaeda and carried out against her former colleague, Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. Propaganda and American Democracy offers an in-depth examination and demonstration of the pervasiveness of propaganda, providing citizens with the knowledge needed to mediate its effect on their lives. The book is published by Louisiana State University Press. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff D. Konrad. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/088044de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.

Design Issues for Service Delivery Platforms - ...
79,72 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Martin Bergaus investigated Service Delivery Platforms (SDP), focussing on their challenges and design aspects from a users perspective. Qualitatively he incorporated user experience in SDP research, developing a Grounded Theory (GT) then set out parameters needed when developing SDP investigations from a user viewpoint, before technical implementation. This study indicates usability factors for future SDP systems and contributes to the exploratory framework represented by the six GT categories. The results of this study benefit Information Systems (IS) experts developing SDP based ICT systems and those interested in practical applications of GT. Martin Bergaus, Ph.D., teaches as an associate lecturer at the University of Applied Science and Technical University in Vienna. His current research interests focuses on a qualitative research using Grounded Theory in the field of Information Systems. He has professional experiences within the ICT and company start up.

Science and Hypothesis
88,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Science and Hypothesis is a classic text in history and philosophy of science. Widely popular since its original publication in 1902, this first new translation of the work in over a century features unpublished material missing from earlier editions. Addressing errors introduced by Greenstreet and Halstead in their early 20th-century translations, it incorporates all the changes, corrections and additions Poincare made over the years. Taking care to update the writing for a modern audience, Poincare´s ideas and arguments become clearer and closer to his original meaning, while David Stump´s introduction gives fresh insights into Poincare´s philosophy of science. By approaching Science and Hypothesis from a contemporary perspective, it presents a better understanding of Poincare´s hierarchy of the sciences, with arithmetic as the foundation, geometry as the science of space, then mechanics and the rest of physics. For philosophers of science and scientists working on problems of space, time and relatively, this is a much needed translation of a ground-breaking work which demonstrates why Poincare is still relevant today.

Bayesian Optimization for Materials Science
49,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book provides a short and concise introduction to Bayesian optimization specifically for experimental and computational materials scientists. After explaining the basic idea behind Bayesian optimization and some applications to materials science in Chapter 1, the mathematical theory of Bayesian optimization is outlined in Chapter 2. Finally, Chapter 3 discusses an application of Bayesian optimization to a complicated structure optimization problem in computational surface science. Bayesian optimization is a promising global optimization technique that originates in the field of machine learning and is starting to gain attention in materials science. For the purpose of materials design, Bayesian optimization can be used to predict new materials with novel properties without extensive screening of candidate materials. For the purpose of computational materials science, Bayesian optimization can be incorporated into first-principles calculations to perform efficient, global structure optimizations. While research in these directions has been reported in high-profile journals, until now there has been no textbook aimed specifically at materials scientists who wish to incorporate Bayesian optimization into their own research. This book will be accessible to researchers and students in materials science who have a basic background in calculus and linear algebra.
