Expert Political Judgment: How Good Is It? How Can We Know? by Philip E. Tetlock
English | 2006 | ISBN: 0691128715, 0691123020 | 352 pages | EPUB | 5 MB

Expert Political Judgment: How Good Is It? How Can We Know?
The intelligence failures surrounding the invasion of Iraq dramatically illustrate the necessity of developing standards for evaluating expert opinion. This book fills that need. Here, Philip E. Tetlock explores what constitutes good judgment in predicting future events, and looks at why experts are often wrong in their forecasts.

Tetlock first discusses arguments about whether the world is too complex for people to find the tools to understand political phenomena, let alone predict the future. He evaluates predictions from experts in different fields, comparing them to predictions by well-informed laity or those based on simple extrapolation from current trends. He goes on to analyze which styles of thinking are more successful in forecasting. Classifying thinking styles using Isaiah Berlin's prototypes of the fox and the hedgehog, Tetlock contends that the fox–the thinker who knows many little things, draws from an eclectic array of traditions, and is better able to improvise in response to changing events–is more successful in predicting the future than the hedgehog, who knows one big thing, toils devotedly within one tradition, and imposes formulaic solutions on ill-defined problems. He notes a perversely inverse relationship between the best scientific indicators of good judgement and the qualities that the media most prizes in pundits–the single-minded determination required to prevail in ideological combat.

Clearly written and impeccably researched, the book fills a huge void in the literature on evaluating expert opinion. It will appeal across many academic disciplines as well as to corporations seeking to develop standards for judging expert decision-making.

Homeland Security and Private Sector Business: Corporations' Role in Critical Infrastructure Protection by Elsa Lee
2009 | ISBN: 1420070789 | English | 302 pages | PDF | 3 MB

Homeland Security and Private Sector Business: Corporations’ Role in Critical Infrastructure Protection
The challenge in combating terrorism is not that any of us could die tomorrow in an attack, but that we cannot seem to perform the basic functions of diagnosing and treating the problem so that it is manageable. Given this, and because public and private sector partnerships are critical to the success of this management, identifies the role the private sector plays in securing our homeland and offers strategies to aid in the fight against national and international threats.

Organized to take into consideration differing leadership and management styles, organizational cultural change barriers, and team dynamics, the information is structured to appeal to most adult learning styles, ensuring effective communication of critical messages. Using helpful case studies and exercises, the author presents invaluable instruction on how to establish, implement, and reinforce terrorism awareness and regulatory compliance with national critical infrastructure interests. Comprehensive in scope, the book reviews threat factors, risk mitigation, readiness plans, prevention approaches, human factors, and training methods. It concludes with insights into the limitations businesses must respect as they adjust to this new paradigm.

A recognized expert in terrorism deterrence and counterintelligence methods, Elsa Lee brings her 28 years of experience in counterterrorism, counterintelligence, and counterespionage investigations to inform the discussion. Organizations which integrate her recommendations into their internal corporate strategies will not only contribute to Homeland Security efforts, but will also ultimately improve business continuity, resiliency, and operational and financial security for the corporation.

Perception Gaps between Headquarters and Subsidiary Managers: Differing Perspectives on Subsidiary Roles and their Implications by Andrea Daniel and Prof. Dr. Stefan Schmid
Publisher: Gabler, Betriebswirt.-Vlg | ISBN: 3834920711 | edition 2010 | PDF | 300 pages | 2 mb

Perception Gaps between Headquarters and Subsidiary Managers
In the past decades, the notion of differentiated subsidiary roles within multinational network corporations has inspired a considerable amount of research. Surprisingly, the question of whether headquarters and subsidiary managers perceive a certain subsidiary's role in the same way has been neglected. Andrea Daniel not only compares headquarters and subsidiary managers' perceptions of a subsidiary's role, but she analyzes the implications of perception gaps for the headquarters-subsidiary relationship. The author develops a novel conceptual framework that allows to examine headquarters-subsidiary relationships and, in particular, the subsidiary role concept. This framework proposes headquarters-subsidiary conflict as the main implication of perception gaps.

Andrija Puharich – Tesla, Water Car, Aliens ,Psychedelics, ELF, Telepathy [16 mp4, 7 mp3, 23 pdf]
Andrija Puharich – (born Karel Puharic, February 19, 1918 – January 3, 1995) was a medical and parapsychological researcher, medical inventor and author, known as the person who brought Israeli Uri Geller and Dutch-born Peter Hurkos (1911-1988) to the United States for scientific investigation. Born in Chicago, Illinois, he was the son of poor Croatian immigrants. His father had entered the U. S. in 1912 as a stowaway. At home Karel's parents always called him "Andrija," which apparently wasn't his name at birth but just his parents' nickname for him. When Karel, as a young boy, started attending school, his parents enrolled him under the name "Henry Karl Puharich," feeling he would be more easily accepted with that name than with the foreign-sounding name "Karel Puharic."[1] Thereafter he often signed his name as "Henry Karl Puharich." He didn't start using his nickname "Andrija" as his first name until sometime in the later part of his life. In 1947, Puharich graduated from the Northwestern University School of Medicine. His residency was completed at Permanente Hospital in California, where he specialized in Internal Medicine. Puharich was a U.S. Army officer in the early 1950s. During that time, he was in and out of Edgewood Arsenal Research Laboratories and Fort Detrick, meeting with various high-ranking officers and officials, primarily from the Pentagon, CIA, and Naval Intelligence.[2] The Edgewood Arsenal is currently officially called the Edgewood Area of Aberdeen Proving Ground.

Of his many books, Puharich wrote a supportive biography of Uri Geller, a paranormal case he investigated with the help of Itzhak Bentov, among others. Before that he investigated favorably the Brazilian psychic surgeon Ze Arigo. Puharich also investigated Mexican psychic surgeon Pachita. One of his books is The Sacred Mushroom: Key to the Door of Eternity, describes his work with psychics. In 1960, Puharich investigated materialization seances at Camp Chesterfield and discovered the use of cheesecloth being used to fake ectoplasm.[3] Two of the most famous of Puharich's over 50 patents were devices that assist hearing – the "Means For Aiding Hearing" U.S. Patent 2,995,633 and "Method And Apparatus For Improving Neural Performance In Human Subjects By Electrotherapy" U.S. Patent 3,563,246". He was also granted a U.S. Patent 4,394,230 in 1983 for a "Method and Apparatus for Splitting Water Molecules." His research included studying the influence of extremely low frequency ELF electromagnetic wave emissions on the mind, and he invented several devices allegedly blocking or converting ELF waves to prevent harm. Puharich claimed he had investigated the effects of a low frequency radiation beam that the Soviet Union had been testing. According to Puharich the beam was based on the work of Nikola Tesla and could be used as a weapon to control people. He also claimed the beam was responsible for climatic disturbances, earthquakes, Legionnaires' disease and violent riots. Puharich wrote Tesla was contacted several times by extraterrestrials.[4] Dr. Andrija Puharich played himself on Perry Mason, in the episode, "The Case of the Meddling Medium," in 1961. He conducted a series of three tests to help determine the ESP of Mason's client accused of murder. During the third test the actual murderer was exposed. While working in Mexico, Puharich married and was later divorced by the future founder and director of The American Visionary Art Museum, Rebecca Alban Hoffberger.

Hermans – Memories of a Maverick, Andrija Puharich (1998)

This book is about the richness, the excitement, the ecstasies and the agonies of the life of Dr. Andrija Puharich. Hampered by poverty, scarred by personal tragedies, he etched his way doggedly from football star, and outstanding student through medical school, on to establish The Round Table Foundation in Maine for parapsychological research, to medical discoveries, resulting in over 75 patents. A maverick, a dedicated researcher, a rebel scientist, Andrija Puharich was both scorned by colleagues, and revered and encouraged by those gifted with foresightedness, including Aldous Huxley. His research expeditions ran the full gamut from initial experiments with Eileen Garrett and Peter Hurkos in the Faraday Cage, to filmed forays into the secrets of the sacred mushroom rites of the Chatino Indians of Mexico, to Brazil to do investigative research on the healer Pachita and Arigo, the famous "surgeon of the rusty knife", to the Kahuna priests of Hawaii, to Israel to study Uri Geller, and the long lasting investigation into the mysteries of UFO's. Andrija Puharich was never satisfied with one-dimensional observation. He participated in the secret rites, partook of the sacred mushroom, and let himself be operated on by Arigo and Pachita. He was a foremost authority on E.L.F. (extremely low frequency magnetic fields) pollution, and its effects on human organisms. As a medical doctor, physicist and inventor, he is in every "Who's Who" of noteworthy scientists. He conducted scientific research of Nobel prize quality, and published numerous scientific papers. During his final years, Dr. Puharich dedicated all his time developing countermeasures against – the genetic damage of E.L.F. signals. He developed a comprehensive theory of the state of well being based on a central frequency of near-8Hz for the homeostatic control of cell division. He was probably the first to detail the scope for further research with dolphins involving novel electromagnetic mechanisms (including scalars), since then followed by top researchers worldwide. He described, on the basis of experimental research, an advanced theory of subatomic physics. He successfully conducted reversal of tumors with superoxide anions and ozone. Being considered too far out, or too ahead of his time, he was by then largely ignored by Academia and earlier colleagues. His passing means the loss of a quiet, sincere explorer of the reaches of human possibilities.

3) For The Record #170 – Plan Nine from Berchtesgaden (1999)

FTR #170 With the end of the millennium drawing near, it is increasingly important to be aware of possible political manipulation of people's apocalyptic fears and hopes. In that context, a channeling cult called "The Nine" bears particular examination. Purporting to be the "Ennead" (the nine gods of ancient Egypt), they have links to many different individuals and institutions including: Andrija Puharich (connected to the CIA's mind control programs of the 50s and 60s), Russians associated with the Gorbachev regime in the former USSR, the Esalen Institute and numerous New Age organizations. This organization espouses a racist, ariosophist philosophy that maintains that all of the Earth's peoples are descended from The Nine (and, consequently, superior) except for the black race (who are, consequently, inferior.) With the New Age movement growing and with 42% of American college graduates believing that we have been visited by space aliens, the danger that the views of The Nine could achieve widespread acceptance and lead to genocide is not one that should be too readily cast aside. (It should be noted that there is convincing evidence that so-called UFOs are real, but do not come from outer space. Should they be deployed in conjunction with other types of secret technology, the views of The Nine could be reinforced in a very convincing way.) As noted above, Andrija Puharich, whose organization has done much to promote The Nine, was involved with the CIA mind-control programs. Those programs were initiated from a research base developed by the Nazis in World War II. The program concludes with a brief look at Savitri Devi, a post-war Nazi mystic who has achieved considerable influence in the New Age movement. (Recorded on 9/19/99.)

4) An INSCOM Beyond Excellence – Army High Performance Task Force Report Documents

A 19-page report acquired via a Freedom of Information Act request to the Department of the Army asking for any openly-acknowledged collaboration between The Monroe Institute and Army intelligence. INSCOM was the central institution in Jon Ronson's "The Men Who Stare At Goats," later made into a film of the same name, and is infamous for attempting to create "psychic super warriors."

Big Data Made Easy: A Working Guide to the Complete Hadoop Toolset (PDF)

Michael Frampton, "Big Data Made Easy: A Working Guide to the Complete Hadoop Toolset"
English | ISBN: 1484200950, 1484200969 | 2015 | 392 pages | PDF | 15 MB
Many corporations are finding that the size of their data sets are outgrowing the capability of their systems to store and process them. The data is becoming too big to manage and use with traditional tools. The solution: implementing a big data system.
As Big Data Made Easy: A Working Guide to the Complete Hadoop Toolset shows, Apache Hadoop offers a scalable, fault-tolerant system for storing and processing data in parallel. It has a very rich toolset that allows for storage (Hadoop), configuration (YARN and ZooKeeper), collection (Nutch and Solr), processing (Storm, Pig, and Map Reduce), scheduling (Oozie), moving (Sqoop and Avro), monitoring (Chukwa, Ambari, and Hue), testing (Big Top), and analysis (Hive).

Big Data Made Easy: A Working Guide to the Complete Hadoop Toolset (PDF)
The problem is that the Internet offers IT pros wading into big data many versions of the truth and some outright falsehoods born of ignorance. What is needed is a book just like this one: a wide-ranging but easily understood set of instructions to explain where to get Hadoop tools, what they can do, how to install them, how to configure them, how to integrate them, and how to use them successfully. And you need an expert who has worked in this area for a decade-someone just like author and big data expert Mike Frampton.

Big Data Made Easy approaches the problem of managing massive data sets from a systems perspective, and it explains the roles for each project (like architect and tester, for example) and shows how the Hadoop toolset can be used at each system stage. It explains, in an easily understood manner and through numerous examples, how to use each tool. The book also explains the sliding scale of tools available depending upon data size and when and how to use them. Big Data Made Easy shows developers and architects, as well as testers and project managers, how to:
Store big data
Configure big data
Process big data
Schedule processes
Move data among SQL and NoSQL systems
Monitor data
Perform big data analytics
Report on big data processes and projects
Test big data systems

Big Data Made Easy also explains the best part, which is that this toolset is free. Anyone can download it and-with the help of this book-start to use it within a day. With the skills this book will teach you under your belt, you will add value to your company or client immediately, not to mention your career.

What you'll learn
How to install and employ Hadoop

How to install and use Hadoop-related tools like Hive, Storm, Pig, Solr, Oozie, Ambari, and many others
How to set up and test a big data system
How to scale the system for the amount of data at hand and the data you expect to accumulate
How those who have spent their careers in the SQL database world can apply their skills to building big data systems
Who this book is for

This book is for developers, architects, IT project managers, database administrators, and others charged with developing or supporting a big data system. It is also for a general IT audience, anyone interested in Hadoop or big data, and those experiencing problems with data size. It's also for anyone who would like to further their career in this area by adding big data skills.
