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 1.

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. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff D. Konrad. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/088044de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.

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.

Food Science and the Culinary Arts is a unique reference that incorporates the principles of food and beverage science with practical applications in food preparation and product development. The first part of the book covers the various elements of the chemical processes that occur in the development of food products. It includes exploration of sensory elements, chemistry, and the transfer of energy and heat within the kitchen. The second part looks in detail at the makeup of specific foodstuffs from a scientific perspective, with chapters on meat, fish, vegetables, sugars, chocolate, coffee, and wine and spirits, among others. It provides a complete overview of the food science relevant to culinary students and professionals training to work in the food industry. Provides foundational food science information to culinary students and specialists Integrates principles of food science into practical applications Spans food chemistry to ingredients, whole foods, and baked and mixed foods Includes a comprehensive glossary of terms in food science Mark Gibson undertook his PhD in food management, environmental sustainability, and food security at Manchester Metropolitan University (United Kingdom). Dr. Gibson is currently an invited assistant professor at the Institute for Tourism Studies (IFT) Macau, China SAR, and is presently lecturing students in all areas of food production, management and hospitality, business strategy, and governance and sustainability. He is also the program leader (coordinator) of the Culinary Arts Management degree course at the institute, where he is continuing to develop the new 4-year culinary degree course that incorporates many elements of food science.

Professional Issues in Forensic Science will introduce students to various topics they will encounter within the field of Forensic Science. Legal implications within the field will focus on expert witness testimony and procedural rules defined by both legislative statute and court decisions. These decisions affect the collection, analysis, and court admissibility of scientific evidence, such as the Frye and Daubert standards and the Federal Rules of Evidence. Existing and pending Forensic Science legislation will be covered, including laws governing state and national DNA databases. Ethical concerns stemming from the day-to-day balancing of competing priorities encountered by the forensic student will be discussed. Such competing priorities may cause conflicts between good scientific practice and the need to expedite work, meet legal requirements, and satisfy clients wishes. The role of individual morality in Forensic Science and competing ethical standards between state and defense experts will be addressed. Examinations of ethical guidelines issued by various professional forensic organizations will be conducted. Students will be presented with examples of ethical dilemmas for comment and resolution. The management of crime laboratories will provide discussion on quality assurance/quality control practices and the standards required by the accreditation of laboratories and those proposed by Scientific Working Groups in Forensic Science. The national Academy of Sciences report on Strengthening Forensic Science will be examined to determine the impact of the field. Professional Issues in Forensic Science is a core topic taught in forensic science programs. This volume will be an essential advanced text for academics and an excellent reference for the newly practicing forensic scientist. It will also fit strategically and cluster well with our other forensic science titles addressing professional issues. Introduces readers to various topics they will encounter within the field of Forensic Science Covers legal issues, accreditation and certification, proper analysis, education and training, and management issues Includes a section on professional organizations and groups, both in the U.S. and Internationally Incorporates effective pedagogy, key terms, review questions, discussion question and additional reading suggestions
