Kasper von Greyerz "Religion and Culture in Early Modern Europe, 1500-1800"
Oxford University Press | 2007-10-22 | ISBN: 0195327667 | 320 pages | PDF | 2 MB

Religion and Culture in Early Modern Europe, 1500-1800
In the pre-industrial societies of early modern Europe, religion was a vessel of fundamental importance in making sense of personal and collective social, cultural and spiritual exercises. Developments from this era had immediate impact on these societies, much of which resonates to the present day. Published in German seven years ago, Kaspar von Greyerz important overview and interpretation of the religions and cultures of Early Modern Europe now appears in the English language for the first time. He approaches his subject matter with the concerns of a social anthropologist, rejecting the conventional dichotomy between popular and elite religion to focus instead on religion in its everyday cultural contexts. Concentrating primarily on Central and Western Europe, von Greyerz analyzes the dynamic strengths of early modern religion in three parts. First, he identifies the changes in religious life resulting from the Protestant Reformation and Catholic Counter-Reformation. He then reveals how the dynamic religious climate triggered various radical and separatist movements, such as the Anabaptists, puritans, and Quakers, and how the newfound emphasis on collective religious identity contributed to the marginalization of non-Christians and outsiders. Last, von Greyerz investigates the broad and still much divided field of research on secularization during the period covered. While many large-scale historical approaches to early modern religion have concentrated on institutional aspects, this important study consciously neglects these elements to provide new and fascinating insights. The resulting work delves into the many distinguishing marks of the period: religious reform and renewal, the hotly debated issue of "confessionalism", social inclusion and exclusion, and the increasing fragmentation of early modern religiosity in the context of the Enlightenment. In a final chapter, von Greyerz addresses the question as to whether early modern religion carried in itself the seeds of its own relativization.

High Noon in the Automotive Industry

FREEDownload : High Noon in the Automotive Industry

High Noon in the Automotive Industry by Helmut Becker
English | 2006 | ISBN: 3540258698 | 273 Pages | PDF | 3 MB
This book was born from curiosity. To begin with, it was the curiosity of an economist who studied in the 60's in an environment which has subsequently developed from national into global economics.

High Noon in the Automotive Industry
Who has to recognize that politicians, scholars and large segments of society oblivious to supranational authorities and e- nomic globalization forces continue to labour under the notion that they are still fully autonomous and sovereign when shaping national economic policy. And pretend as though their own national state were still the "m- ter in its own house" that despite unbridled market economics could c- tinue to dictate to the economy and companies how to live and in which "rooms". All that has become fiction. The laws of globalization diminish the – noeuvring space for shaping national economic policy. Even if many folks today don't want to hear it: The issue is no longer achieving what is soc- politically desirable for the own society but rather the optimal adaptation of society and social benefits to the politically practicable.

Building Rules: How Local Controls Shape Community Environments And Economies

FREEDownload : Building Rules: How Local Controls Shape Community Environments And Economies

Building Rules: How Local Controls Shape Community Environments And Economies by Kee Warner
English | 2001 | ISBN: 0813339235 | 216 Pages | PDF | 23 MB
Urban and suburban growth is a burning local issue for communities across the United States and many other parts of the world.

Building Rules: How Local Controls Shape Community Environments And Economies
Concerns include protecting habitats, high costs of infrastructure, social inequalities, traffic congestion and more intangible worries about "quality of life." Citizens pressure public officials to intensify development regulations, flying in the face of local "growth machines." Builders and growth boosters oppose regulation as unfair and bad for local economies. Based on a systematic comparative study of urban areas in Southern California, this book provides a much-needed examination of the true impacts of local development controls, including the ways that they have and have not made a difference. The authors draw general implications for communities elsewhere and how to better understand theories of growth and urban governance.

Modern Art: A Very Short Introduction by David Cottington
English | 2005-05-26 | ISBN: 0192803646 | PDF | 152 pages | 3,6 MB

Modern Art: A Very Short Introduction
Public interest in modern art continues to grow, as witnessed by the spectacular success of the Tate Modern in London and the Bilbao Guggenheim. engages general readers, offering them not only information and ideas about modern art, but also explaining its contemporary relevance and history. The book focuses on interrogating the idea of "modern" art by asking such questions as: What makes a work of art qualify as modern, or fail to? How has this selection been made? What is the relationship between modern and contemporary art? Is "postmodernist" art no longer modern, or just no longer modernist? In either case, why–and what does this claim mean, both for art and the idea of "the modern?"
Cottingham examines many key aspects of this subject, including the issue of controversy in modern art, from Manet's Dejeuner sur L'Herbe (1863) to Picasso's Les Demoiselles, and Tracey Emin's Bed (1999). He also looks at the role of the dealer from the main Cubist art dealer Kahnweiler, to Charles Saatchi.

Visit AutomateWithASAP.com for more info Creating a test environment can be a painful exercise consisting of many hours of downloading, installing, waiting, and configuring.

PowerShell for Systems Administrators | Automate VirtualBox With ASAP User Guide
Multiply that by 'x' if you are building a test environment with multiple systems. Unfortunately, if an install or test is botched the process will need to be completed again. The work isn't hardit's just time consuming.

Unfortunately, if you have limited resources, creating multiple test environments can be a pain. ASAP was created to address this issue.

ASAP will allow you to create multiple disposable environments that can be run locally on a Windows system using Oracle's VirtualBox.

ASAP was created with PowerShell and can be scripted to setup a test environment using a preconfigured configuration file.

I have taken concepts from gaming industry and applied the model to ASAP. Think of ASAP as a system for building test environments. ASAP is the gaming system and the configuration file is the game. Multiple configuration files can be setup to run different test environments depending on your needs. The power of ASAP is that is uses PowerShell and VirtualBox's command line tools to automate the process so you don't have to worry about it. All that is needed is a base OS and a configuration file. ASAP will do the rest.

Managing Supply Chain Risk

FREEDownload : Managing Supply Chain Risk

Managing Supply Chain Risk (International Series in Operations Research & Management Science) by ManMohan S. Sodhi and Christopher S. Tang
English | ISBN: 1461432375 | 2012 | 351 pages | PDF | 5,3 MB

Managing Supply Chain Risk
"Supply Chain Risk Management is an issue that many companies face and yet few companies know how to deal with it in a systematic and pragmatic manner. While avoiding and reducing supply chain risks are certainly preferable, developing ways to restore and stabilize supply chain operations rapidly after a major disruption is critical for managing global supply chains. Sodhi and Tang present important concepts, frameworks, strategies, and analyses that are essential for managing supply chain risks. Not only does this book suggest some practical ways to work with different partners to manage the risks that are present in a global supply chain, it creates a framework that would enable practitioners to engage researchers to work on this important area." -Thomas A. Debrowski, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Operations, Mattel, Inc. "When a firm outsources its operations to external suppliers, the firm is vulnerable to major and rare disruptions that can occur at any link in the global supply chain. Because these disruptions rarely occur, few firms take commensurable actions to identify, assess, mitigate and respond to various types of supply chain risks. By introducing frameworks and concepts along with several case studies and a review of academic literature, Sodhi and Tang treat this important subject with practical relevance and academic rigor. This book will bring practitioners and researchers to develop effective and efficient ways to manage supply chain risks." -Marshall L. Fisher, UPS Professor, Professor of Operations and Information Management and Co-Director of Fishman-Davidson Center for Service and Operations Management, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania "This book ties observations in practice to methodologies and research. The rich case examples motivated the approaches and methodologies used to mitigate risks, and in the course of doing so, Sodhi and Tang provided insights on existing and new research opportunities. As a result, this book is highly relevant to both practitioners and academics. Also, the book is also written with management lessons on how risks can be mitigated, and how risks can be contained once disruptions have occurred. As such, it is also a book for management to gain insights and to develop management skills." -Hau L. Lee, Thoma Professor of Operations, Information and Technology and Director of the Stanford Global Supply Chain Management Forum, Graduate School of Business, Stanford University "As companies have extended their supply chains globally and as the face increasing resource issues, they face a number of new risk challenges. While there are various case studies written about supply chain risks, this book gives a comprehensive treatment of the subject with clarity. The concepts and frameworks developed by Sodhi and Tang in this book would create awareness of this important and yet not well understood subject, and strategies described in this book would stimulate practitioners to develop a holistic approach for identifying, assessing, mitigating, and responding to different types of supply chain risks." -Nick Wildgoose, Global Supply Chain Proposition Manager, Zurich Insurance
