The author presents a theory whereby nets, terms and formulas represent concurrent process at three levels of abstractions: Petri nets are used to describe all details of the operational machine behavior of processes Algebraic process terms such as Calculus of Communicating Systems (CCS) or Communicating Sequential Processes (CSP) two of озщжл the main models for parallel programming, are used to describe the architecture of processes, i e how they can be composed from subprocesses Logical formulas of a first-order trace logic are used to describe the safety and liveness aspects of the communication behavior of processes as required by their users The main emphasis and technical contribution of this theory are transformations for a top-down design of concurrent processes starting with formulas and proceeding through terms to nets.

This research study seeks to understand the nature of organisational change with respect to offshore outsourcing of information technology services in a multinational pharmaceutical company, and to examine the effectiveness of approaches used to manage this change so that lessons may be drawn from these experiences Despite the abundant literature озщмм on effective organisational change management, the key factors that need to be managed properly at different stages of the offshore outsourcing process are not well understood The research adopts a processual view to paint a broad picture of the issues involved in these different stages A generic process model of change, based on the review of the change literature, was first developed to represent how change was intended to occur This model focuses on the following four stages in the change process: context, diagnosis and planning, implementation, and institutionalisation The research employs an interpretive case study approach and draws on fieldwork from three independent information systems departments (cases) of the company, where offshore outsourcing programmes were implemented Qualitative data from semi-structured interviews, direct observation and document analysis are analysed by applying the generic process model to produce a detailed account of the way in which change was managed in the case organisations The findings reveal that a combination of contextual factors, both external and internal to the company, influenced the adoption and use of offshore outsourcing in the case organisations Externally, the economic forces were found to be the main catalyst for the change, while internally the role of the executive leadership and the lack of internal resources further explain the motivations behind the adoption of offshore outsourcing The study illustrates that achieving successful outcomes from offshore outsourcing activities critically depends on the organisation adequately addressing a number of factors, such as conveying a sense of urgency, developing and communicating the vision, identifying the benefits of change and how they will be delivered, generating short-term wins, providing education and training, developing a fit between the change and organisational culture, etc , throughout the change process The findings also highlight the effects of offshore outsourcing on the case organisations, including change in job roles and responsibilities and organisational learning activities that enable corrective actions to improve change management efforts An important contribution of this research is the development of a model providing a more comprehensive understanding of the change process associated with the implementation of offshore IT outsourcing Recommendations for policy makers and change managers to improve change management practice based on the research findings, as well as recommendations for further research, form a significant part of the conclusions.

In system design (in particular, industrial control systems), there is, and has been, a continuous need to sense real-world analog quantities (such as temperature, pressure, or humidity), make computations with them, and then perform some action with the result In today's systems, the computations need to be made at increased speeds and the озщмч accuracy with which the computations must be made, even as the speed increases, must be the same or higher as time progresses The advent of the microcontroller, and its extensive use in all types of control applications, many of them battery powered, has led to new control system design approaches Rather than computing using analog quantities, the analog quantities are sensed, conditioned, and converted to digital, processed digitally, and then converted back to an analog output, which is then used to perform the necessary output action This practical textbook covers the latest techniques in microcontroller-based control system design It is aimed at engineering students and engineers new to working with microcontrollers It covers the fundamentals of: 1 Sensors and the electrical signals they output 2 The design and application of the electronic circuits that receive and condition (change or modify) the sensor analog signals 3 The design and application of the circuits that convert analog signals to digital and digital signals to analog 4 The makeup and operation of a microcontroller and how to program it 5 The application of electronic circuits for system power control The book, written by an experienced microcontroller engineer and textbook author, is suitable for community college students, technical school students, technicians and engineers just being introduced to microcontroller system design It is an introductory book, focusing on real-world implementation of a basic control system, with real-world circuit examples Readers will find clearly written discussion coupled with lots of illustrations They will also find worked-out examples that illustrate principles within each chapter and quizzes to aid understanding Besides these specifics, a hands-on project, suitable for an electronics microcontroller laboratory course, using the popular and low-cost TI MSP430 microcontroller, is discussed in detail The accompanying CD-ROM contains microcontrollers application notes, code for the software examples, and problem solutions * Seasoned Texas Instruments designer provides a ground-up perspective on embedded control systems * Pedagogical style provides a self-learning approach with examples, quizzes and review features * CD-ROM contains source code and more!.

For many decades Japan enjoyed great success with its export-oriented economy and the outsourcing of its foreign policy to the United States under the US security umbrella Its role in the world was simple, and times were good But times have changed: With the end of the Cold War, a shrinking domestic population, global instabilities after 9-11, the озщну financial crisis, and other seismic shifts, Japan now faces a more complicated world In this groundbreaking and provocative discussion, three foreigners who have lived and worked in Japan – a Canadian, a Frenchman and a Spaniard – argue that Japan has much to gain by pursuing a more engaged, outward-looking, multilateral posture in its region and globally While the country will continue to enjoy good relations with the West, the time has come for Japan to embrace its Asian heritage and future, as well as its own potential contribution to world affairs A globally engaged, more open Japan, the authors argue, is win-win-win: good for Japan, good for Asia, and good for the world If Japan is truly to become a global citizen, however, it must not only reach out more to the world, it must also admit more of the world – new ideas, people, and capital from afar – on its own soil But is Japan - are Japanese - prepared to do so?.

"Of course I want a home," writes Mary Elizabeth Williams, "I'm American " Gimme Shelter is the first book to reveal how this primal desire, "encoded into our cultural DNA," drove our nation to extremes, from the heights of an unprecedented housing boom to the depths of an unparalleled crash As a writer and parent озщпн in New York City, Williams is careful to ground her real-estate dreams in the reality of her middle-class bank account Yet as a person who knows no other way to fall in love than at first sight, her relationship with the nation's most daunting housing market is a passionate one Williams's house-hunting fantasy quickly morphs into a test of endurance, as her search for a place to live and a mortgage she can afford stretches into a three-year odyssey that takes her to the farthest reaches of the boroughs and the limits of her own patience "Welcome to the tracks," she declares at the outset of yet another weekend tour of blindingly bad, wildly overpriced properties "Let's go to the wrong side of them, shall we?" As her own quest unfolds, Williams simultaneously reports on the housing markets nationwide Friends and family members grapple with real estate agents and lenders, neighborhood and quality-of-life issues, all the while voicing common concerns, as expressed by this Maryland working parent of three: "The market was so hot, there were no houses We looked for years at places the owners wouldn't even clean, let alone fix up "How frustrating is the process? Williams likens it to hearing "the opening bars of a song you think is 'Super Freak ' And then it turns out to be 'U Can't Touch This '" Told in an engaging blend of factfinding and memoir, Gimme Shelter charts the course of the real estate bubble as it floated ever upward, not with faceless numbers and documents but with the details of countless personal stories -- about the undeniable urge to put down roots and the lengths to which we'll go to find our way home.

Book DescriptionThe systems engineering method proposed in this book, which is based on Abstract State Machines (ASMs), guides the development of software and embedded hardware-software systems seamlessly from requirements capture to actual implementation and documentation The method bridges the gap between the human understanding and озщрч formulation of real-world problems and the deployment of their algorithmic solutions by code-executing machines Within a single conceptual framework it covers design, verification by reasoning techniques, and validation by simulation and testing ASMs improve current industrial practice by using accurate high-level modeling and by linking the descriptions at the successive stages of system development in an organic and efficiently maintainable chain of rigorous and coherent system models at stepwise-refined abstraction levels In several industrial projects the ASM method has proven its superiority compared to the popular UML methodology when designing complex parallel or dynamic systems This book combines the features of a textbook and a handbook: the reader will find detailed explanations, proofs, and exercises as well as numerous examples and real-world case studies Researchers will find here the most comprehensive description of ASMs available today and professionals will use it as a "modeling handbook for the working software engineer " As a textbook it supports self-study or it can form the basis of a lecture course The book is complemented by a CD containing the whole book text, additional course material, solutions to exercises, and additional examples Even more information can be found on the related website maintained by the authors: http://www di unipi it/AsmBook/.

Переводчик: Михаил Звонарев Начав с изучения давно утративших смысл франкмасонских церемониалов, исследователи истории масонства Кристофер Найт и Роберт Ломас, авторы озщуы мирового бестселлера "Второй мессия", провели уникальное по своим масштабам историческое расследование После кропотливых поисков они сумели установить личность человека, которого потомки со временем начали называть Хирамом Абифом, легендарным архитектором Иерусалимского Храма и основоположником Братства вольных каменщиков Основываясь на исторических документах и вещественных свидетельствах, дошедших до нашего времени, создатели этой книги утверждают: миф об убийстве архитектора Хирама основан на вполне реальных зловещих событиях, которые произошли несколько тысяч лет назад и оставили след в масонских ритуалах Проследив тянущуюся через века сакральную традицию, Найт и Ломас определили, что истинное учение Иисуса Христа, основанное на тайнах Хирама, было искажено во времена раннего христианства, но вновь вернулось в мир после первых Крестовых походов вместе с рыцарями Храма, вызвав к жизни целый ряд ересей и тайных обществ Авторы уверены, что религиозный геополитический триллер, веками разворачивавшийся в Старом и Новом Свете, не утратил динамизма и в наши дни Авторы Кристофер Найт Christopher Knight Роберт Ломас Robert Lomas.

In 2006, a team led by the English economist Sir Nicholas Stern issued a striking report that analyzed the economic dimensions of global climate change and called for immediate collective action to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions This seminal report poses the critical question of how much emissions should be reduced within specific timeframes озщфд To answer the challenge of finding a best-practices approach, Global Warming and the World Trading System looks at the economic aspects of GHG emissions and seeks a policy method to reduce them without adversely affecting global trade The book begins with a survey of relevant data--such as emissions reports per sector--and evaluates current US climate policy options, focusing on the intricacies of specific Congressional bills In this vein, this study examines whether the competitiveness provisions now under consideration are compatible with the rules of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and explores the pragmatic opportunities the WTO should capitalize on in order to accomplish two goals simultaneously: (1) Ensure policy space for countries to limit national GHG emissions without sacrificing the competitive position of their own industries (2) Preserve an open trading system relatively free of discrimination and opportunistic protectionist measures Should governments use trade measures to encourage other countries to cooperate in the adoption of environmental policies? The authors anticipate the potential negative environmental and economic outcomes as well as the disputes over violation of GATT articles This book addresses how to avoid serious setbacks in an effort to reduce emissions without compromising the status of both domestic and international carbon-intensive industries Most importantly, the book considers what can be done by environmental organizations to head off conflict with the WTO.

Amazon comIn 1930 a disaffected young photographer in New York pointed his camera at two workers shoving a huge sign reading DAMAGED into a truck With that image, Walker Evans gave birth to the quirky, edgy genre of street photography Yes, this is the same Walker Evans famous for eye-level photographs of Alabama sharecroppers, rural churches and озщцэ roadside signs The special appeal of Walker Evans is thatin addition to nearly 200 classic photographsit offers new images and fresh assessments of his work, based on diaries, letters, field notes and unpublished negatives acquired a decade ago by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York The engagingly written essays by four specialists all bump up against the contradictory impulses of this meticulous, aloof yet curiously passionate artist A self-described "gray man," he hated color photography Yet the photographs from his final years--he died in 1975--include strikingly offbeat Polaroids of the glum or startled faces of friends and acquaintances Four decades earlier, too inhibited to confront strangers directly, he hid a camera in his coat to capture the slack faces of subway riders Despite the unadorned power of his images of people, Evans had a deeper connection to vernacular architecture and roadside signs He photographed these everyday subjects straight on, at eye level, deliberately opting for the most deadpan approach Yet the images are imbued with Evans' unique sensitivity to subtle visual rhythms Influenced by Surrealism, he freely cropped photographs to shift the viewers perspective Despite his ardent scrutiny of the American scene in the 1930s, Evans stood apart from politics and disdained both sentimentality and social criticism His omnivorous appetite for the culture of his time was tempered by the sober documentary influence of nineteenth century photographers Eugène Atget and Matthew Brady For all its shrewd commentary, this beautifully produced book discusses Evans' life only insofar as it illuminates the story of the photographs More detailed accounts are available in biographies by James R Mellow and Belinda Rathbone --Cathy CurtisBook Description A tenant farmer's deprivation-lined face Antebellum homes that have seen better days The display windows of small-town main streets The early subway commuter Billboards The images made by photographer Walker Evans (1903-1975) are icons of national identity that have shaped Americans' views of themselves and directly influenced importantcurrents of modern art This major catalogue--published to accompany a retrospective exhibition originating at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and traveling to San Francisco and Houston--presents the full range of Evans's work, from his 1920s black-and-white street scenes of anonymous urban dwellers to the color photographs of signs and letter forms from his final years Soon after he returned from Paris to New York City in 1927, Evans began contributing to the development of American photography He captured the substance of people and buildings with a spare elegance that is utterly unpretentious His gaze is serious but often amused as well, direct yet never simple During the 1930s, Evans traveled throughout the South to chronicle the effects of economic hardship The time that he and writer James Agee spent with Alabama sharecropper families yielded an evocative, honest record of the Great Depression, which was published in book form as Let Us Now Praise Famous Men (1941) Evans then turned his lens back on New Yorkers, photographing subway riders with a camera hidden in his coat He continued to influence American self-perception as staff photographer for Fortune from 1945 until he accepted a professorship at Yale in 1965 Evans--who always chose art over what he criticized as artiness--wrote, in Photography (1969), "Whether he is an artist or not, the photographer is a joyous sensualist, for the simple reason that the eye traffics in feelings, not in thoughts This man is in effect a voyeur by nature; he is also reporter, tinkerer, and spy " Although his work has received many awards, been enshrined in the best museums, and been exhibited on several continents, Evans's total corpus is only now being fully examined This important book revises our appreciation of Evans by presenting previously unknown material in an accessible context Essays by Maria Morris Hambourg, Jeff L Rosenheim, Doug Eklund, and Mia Fineman offer novel insights into the sources and legacy of Evans's work The result is a superb exploration of what was achieved by one of our finest, mostly deeply American artists.

Photo Sex offers both an expanded vision of the nature of photography--that fine art photography legitimately includes the subject of unapologetic sex--and an expanded vision of the nature of sex--that sex involves more than sexual intercourse and its attendant foreplay, more than the pursuit of orgasm The premise is that each photo in the book озщшк is a sexual photograph in this sense This, of course, begs the question, "What is sex?" a question that each person will answer differently Photo Sex collectively offers the author/photographer's personal perspective on what is included in the sexual realm--a perspective which is fairly broad A wide audience for photography views sex in a more complex, subtle, and interesting way than commercial pornography can offer This broad audience includes women as well as men, and people of all ages, ethnicities, and sexual orientations who are interested in exploring sex in depth, rather than reducing its complexity and wonder to cliches Photo Sex is inclusive in its choice of both subjects and subject matter, with images of middle-aged and older people as well as youth, of heavy people as well as thin, of people who represent a broad range of genders, ethnicities, sexual tastes, and sexual orientations The photos confirm that all sorts of "ordinary" people are both sexy and sexual Автор Дэвид Стейнберг David Steinberg.

Book DescriptionWith this book of color photographs of the polished hearts of stones portrayed as natural paintings, BILL ATKINSON completes his transition from whiz kid of Silicon Valley to high priest of Silica After helping to usher in the age of personal computing by designing the graphical user interface of the Macintosh computer, Atkinson озщшо turned his visual and technical talents to nature photography While shooting in the Painted Desert, Atkinson became intrigued with the brilliant colors in the petrified wood littering the ground He brought home some polished rock slabs, photographed them in natural color and without magnification, and was enthralled The photographs looked more like paintings of forgotten dreams than either rocks or photographs Atkinson went on to borrow and photograph thousands of art-quality stones at gem shows From these thousands of stones, Atkinson has picked for WITHIN THE STONE those seventy-two that yielded the most striking, the most poetic, and the most ineffable images Many of the photographs suggest the styles of particular masters of modern painting: Klee, Klimt, Turner, OKeefe To accompany these images, the publisher commissioned seventy literary pieces for WITHIN THE STONE from seven top writers, each one accomplished in both scientific and artistic fields Each writer was asked to free-associate with his or her ten assigned photographs as though they were Rorschach patterns on steroids The seven contributors are DIANE ACKERMAN (poet andpsychologist), PHILIP BALL (Nature editor and dramatist), JOHN HORGAN (science writer and philosopher), ANDREW REVKIN (New York Times reporter and screenplay writer), DORION SAGAN (science writer and novelist), TYLER VOLK (biologist and architect), and DAVID ZINDELL (science fiction novelist and mathematician) In an appendix to WITHIN THE STONE, professional lapidaries SI and ANN FRAZIER and mineral scientist ROBERT HUTCHINSON provide a detailed description and commentary for each specimen.

Capitalizing on Change: A Social History of American Business (The Luther H Hodges Jr and Luther H Hodges Sr Series on Business, Society and the State) артикул 2558e.
Americans love "this year's model," relying on the "new" to be always "improved " Enthusiasm for the new, says Stanley Buder, is essential to American business, where innovation and change stoke the engines of economic energy To really understand the history of business in America, he argues, we must understand озщйъ the intertwining dynamics of social and business values In a history spanning over three hundred years, Buder examines the enveloping expansion of the market economy, the laggardly use of government to modify or control market forces, the rise of consumerism, the shifting role of small business, and much more He concludes with the explosive development of business in the 1990s and its aftermath of crises and scandal Along the way, he analyzes the ways American social values foster an entrepreneurial ethos and why the identification of change with progress provides a distinctive and provocative theme in American life Buder studies American business as not only an engine of wealth accumulation but also an important generator and reflector of American values Capitalizing on Change is the first full-length business history in recent years to make this relationship clear. footwea2009 г Твердый переплет, 568 стр ISBN 0807832316.

The Bull Inside the Bear: Finding New Investment Opportunities in Todays Fast-Changing Financial Markets артикул 2568e.
The meltdown in the credit markets, the decline in housing prices, and the turmoil in the stock market has rocked the world of the everyday investor The idea that home ownership and the stock market are the best long-term investments suddenly has been thrown into question Bearish investment experts are touting historical research that suggests озщкй both real estate values and the stock market could stagnate for years to come, thus imperiling the retirement planning of millions of Americans In The Bull Inside the Bear, investment manager and former Federal Reserve economist Rob Stein argues that the economy is entering uncharted water and investors need to actively manager their portfolios to take advantage of new opportunities and avoid risky sectors No longer can investors simply rely on a "buy and hold" strategy The key will be to stay nimble and be ready to increase stock holdings if the economy recovers strongly and be ready to substantially reduce stock holdings if the current problems continue to weigh down economic performance Moreover, investors must be open to weighting their portfolios in favor of hot sectors depending on economic and financial market performance Stein argues that it will take several years for the credit markets to stabilize following the crash of the Greenspan-driven credit expansion, which will make investing far more volatile and unpredictable than previously But by adroitly moving in and out of exchange-traded funds, individual investors will be able to prosper in this new and challenging investment environment.

With Purpose: Going from Success to Significance in Work and Life артикул 2580e.
The definition of success changes as you grow in life As a child, it meant pleasing your parents; in high school, it may have meant good grades or popularity; as a professional, success usually means a good salary and the respect of others But what about the years after your initial goals have been pursued and met? What does success mean then? Leisure озщлъ or legacy? For more and more people, it's about making things better and about improving the world in a lasting, significant way—about changing people's lives and altering the course of history for the better There's an environment to protect and communities to strengthen There are minds to change and hearts to win There are examples to set and legacies to leave—your legacy With Purpose is for the bold, for the dreamers who act It's an urging on why you should commit to have a lasting impact on the world, and it's a manifesto on what you can do to maximize that impact, regardless of whether or not you think you have the resources to do it: you do It will inspire you, show you how to identify your strengths, and make your next success a significant one.

India's Political Economy: The Gradual Revolution (1947-2004) артикул 2606e.
This book addresses the fundamental paradox of India's political economy: how can the goals of economic growth and reduction of economic and social disparities be reconciled without unleashing the disruptive violence of a direct attack on the propertied castes and classes The author illuminates the contradiction between the practice of accommodative озщод politics and the commitment to social change that characterized India's development policies Using data from interviews conducted over a 30-year period, Professor Frankel analyses the strategy of democratic social transformation adapted from Gandhi's two-pronged approach: class accommodation combined with an indirect attack on the social basis of exploitation She examines the failures in implementation of basic social reform that led India during the post-Nehru period into an economic and political impasse The author shows how these failures not only limited India's progress toward economic growth and social justice, but also disrupted the political consensus that had made a stable democracy possible The new chapters engage critically with the economic liberalization programme that India initiated since 1991.

Low Power Analog CMOS for Cardiac Pacemakers : Design and Optimization in Bulk and SOI Technologies (The International Series in Engineering and Computer Science) артикул 2618e.
Book DescriptionPower reduction is a central priority in battery-powered medical implantable devices, particularly pacemakers, to either increase battery lifetime or decrease size using a smaller battery Low Power Analog CMOS for Cardiac Pacemakers proposes new techniques for the reduction of power consumption in analog integrated circuits озщпх Our main example is the pacemaker sense channel, which is representative of a broader class of biomedical circuits aimed at qualitatively detecting biological signals The first and second chapters are a tutorial presentation on implantable medical devices and pacemakers from the circuit designer point of view This is illustrated by the requirements and solutions applied in our implementation ofan industrial IC for pacemakers There from, the book discusses the means for reduction of power consumption at three levels: base technology, power-oriented analytical synthesis procedures and circuit architecture At the technology level, we analyze the impact that the application of the fully depleted silicon-on-insulator (FD SOI) technology has on this kind of analog circuits The basic building block levels as well as the system level (pacemaker sense channel) are considered Concerning the design technique, we apply a methodology, based on the transconductance to current ratio that exploits all regions of inversion of the MOS transistor Various performance aspects of analog building blocks are modeled and a power optimization synthesis of OTAsfor a given total settling time (including the slewing and linear regions) is proposed At the circuit level, we present a new design approach of a class AB output stage suitable for micropower application In our design approach, the usual advantages of the application of a class AB output stage are enhanced by the application of a transconductance multiplication effect These techniques are tested in experimental prototypes of amplifiers and complete pacemaker sense channel implementations in SOI and standard bulk CMOS technologies An ultra low consumption of 110 nA (0 3µ W) is achieved in a FD SOI sense channel implementation Though primarily addressed to the pacemaker system, the techniques proposed are shown to have application in other contexts where power reduction is a main concern.

Fault Injection Techniques and Tools for Embedded Systems Reliability Evaluation (Frontiers in Electronic Testing) артикул 2622e.
Book DescriptionOur society is faced with an increasing dependence on computing systems, not only in high tech consumer applications but also in areas (e g , air and railway traffic control, nuclear plant control, aircraft and car control) where a failure can be critical for the safety of human beings Unfortunately, it is accepted that large digital озщпь systems cannot be fault-free Some faults may be attributed to inaccuracy during the development, while others can come from external causes such as environmental stress Radiations, electromagnetic interference and power glitches are some of the most common causes of transient faults As a consequence, the past years have seen a growing interest in methods for studying the behaviour of computer-based systems when faults occur, and several approaches have been proposed to evaluate the dependability properties of a computer-based system Fault Injection, i e , the artificial injection of faults into a computer system in order to study its behaviour, emerged as a viable solution, and has been deeply investigated by both academia and industry Different techniques have been proposed and some of them practically experimented Fault Injection Techniques and Tools for Embedded Systems Reliability Evaluation intends to be a comprehensive guide to Fault Injection techniques used to evaluate the dependability of a digital system The description and the critical analysis of different Fault Injection techniques and tools will be authored by key scientists in the field of system dependability and fault tolerance.

Not Everyone Gets A Trophy: How to Manage Generation Y артикул 2636e.
This book will frame Generation Y (children born between 1978-1991) for corporate leaders and managers at time when the corporate world is desperate to recruit and retain worked in this age group It will debunk dozens of myths, including that young employees have no sense of loyalty, won't do grunt work, won't take direction, want to interact only озщси with computers, and are only about money This book will make a unique contribution in four key ways: It will disprove the idea that the key to recruiting, retaining, and managing this generation is to somehow make the workplace more "fun " To the contrary, Tulgan argues that the key to winning the respect of this generation, and getting the best effort out of them, is to carefully manage their expectations by never downplaying any negative aspect of a job He will show managers how this Generation thinks transactionally in all negotiations For them it's about what they will do for you today and what you will do for them today, not tomorrow, not five years from today, but today He will explain why they have no interest in tying their futures to your corporation But he will also make clear that they do have a well thought-out plan for themselves, one that requires that every job they take build up their skill sets, so they become more valuable employees for someone else--if and when you do not fulfill your end of the bargain, or drag your feet in doing so But most of all, it will explain to corporate leaders that for this generation their personal life comes first, so that each job they take must accommodate itself to some need defined by their personal life Tulgan argues that until you know the personal need the job can satisfy for a potential employee, you and the applicant may be talking past each other Those needs are so beyond the imagination of most bosses that Tulgan devotes a third of the book to explaining how they affect the job decisions of this generation.

Nano, Quantum and Molecular Computing : Implications to High Level Design and Validation артикул 2650e.
Book DescriptionOne of the grand challenges in the nano-scopic computing era is guarantees of robustness Robust computing system design is confronted with quantum physical, probabilistic, and even biological phenomena, and guaranteeing high reliability is much more difficult than ever before Scaling devices down to the level of single electron озщтй operation will bring forth new challenges due to probabilistic effects and uncertainty in guaranteeing 'zero-one' based computing Minuscule devices imply billions of devices on a single chip, which may help mitigate the challenge of uncertainty by replication and redundancy However, such device densities will create a design and validation nightmare with the shear scale The questions that confront computer engineers regarding the current status of nanocomputing material and the reliability of systems built from such miniscule devices, are difficult to articulate and answer We have found a lack of resources in the confines of a single volume that at least partially attempts to answer these questions We believe that this volume contains a large amount of research material as well as new ideas that will be very useful for some one starting research in the arena of nanocomputing, not at the device level, but theproblems one would face at system level design and validation when nanoscopic physicality will be present at the device level.

Shomei Tomatsu : Skin of the Nation артикул 2716e.
Amazon comA beer bottle that withstood the atom bomb blast in Nagasaki is the subject of Shomei Tomatsu's most famous photograph Mysterious and repulsive, the object looks like a deformed fetus In a career spanning more than 50 years, Tomatsu has created strikingly ambiguous images that hint at tensions simmering below the surface of Japanese озщшм life Shomei Tomatsu: Skin of the Nation is the first English-language survey of this brilliantly idiosyncratic photographer's work Grouped by theme, morethan 100 images contain subtle layers of meaning On a Tokyo street in 1962, an abandoned high-heeled shoe, a cigarette butt, and a crumpled piece of tinfoil (likely from a stick of American chewing gum) are bitter souvenirs of a night on the town A fewyears later, Tomatsu captured the sense of isolation that envelops both a lone protestor and a shadowy group of policemen In Okinawa, Tomatsu photographed both the U S military presence and the traditional way of life that persisted into the 1970s--glimpsed in the breeze-stirred motion of a curtain against a window or the sight of prowling dogs in the hazy morning sun Leo S Rubinfien's revelatory essay about the photographer and his work has a lyrical grace that approaches poetry Sandra S Phillips deftly summarizes the shift from American-influenced photojournalism of the immediate postwar era to the subjective approaches of a younger generation John W Dower adds further historical context, including the disquieting fact thatdue to U S censorshipphotographs of the devastation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were not published in Japan until 1952 Excerpts from Tomatsu's own vivid writings add another layer of insight The handsomely designed book accompanies a retrospective exhibition of Tomatsus work at the Japan Society Gallery in New York (through Jan 2, 2005), which will travel to Washington, D C , San Francisco and Winterthur, Switzerland --Cathy CurtisBook Description Japan’s brilliant and influential postwarphotographer Shomei Tomatsu (b 1930) has created some of the most dramatic images in the history of photography Many of his photographs have become icons of the twentieth century This important book is the first in-depth English-language study of Tomatsu’s work Richly illustrated and handsomely designed, it features more than one hundred plates representing—in ten thematic sections—the full range of his career Tomatsu emerged in the 1950s with his sensitive pictures of postwar Japan In the 1960s the artist turned his camera to the aftermath of the atomic bomb and the lingering presence of the U S military in his homeland In subsequent decades his lens has captured the elation of Japan’s economic boom and the problems inspired by his culture’s increasing westernization Throughout, Tomatsu’s pictures have consistently resonated not only with Japanese society but also with American culture Included in this book are essays by distinguished scholars on all aspects of the artist’s life and career as well as a selection of brief excerpts from Tomatsu’s own writings, many of which have never appeared in English Skin of the Nation (the book’s subtitle) is both a literal and metaphorical reference to the surfaces that have appeared in countless pictures throughout Tomatsu’s career For the artist, skin is more than just a surface, it is a kind of map in which one can read the story of Japan—its essence and its future.

Andreas Gursky: Photographs артикул 2722e.
Book DescriptionIn his large-format colour photos Gursky usually portrays vast panoramic views: "complete" townscapes, "endless horizons", huge factory halls and packed rooms, frequently from a birds eye view, always from a great distance The people in these tableaux, reminiscent of the landscape paintings of romanticism озщшщ in terms of composition and lighting, are reduced to the size of tiny decorative figures, whose "individuality" seems to drown in the "ornamentation of the masses " Devoid of any trace of reproach or intention to psychologize, Gurskys portraits of exteriors and interiors capturing scenes of work and leisure are subtle descriptions of the condition of our society Our book, the first major monograph of Gurskys photographic work since 1984, is now available again.
