Bridges: The science and art of the world's most inspiring structures by David Blockley
English | 2010 | ISBN: 0199543593 | 329 Pages | PDF | 2 MB
The Brooklyn Bridge, London's Tower Bridge, Sydney's Harbour Bridge, San Francisco's Golden Gate–bridges can be breathtakingly monumental structures, magnificent works of art, and vital arteries that make life vastly easier.

Bridges: The science and art of the world’s most inspiring structures
In Bridges , eminent structural engineer David Blockley takes readers on a fascinating guided tour of bridge construction, ranging from the primitive rope bridges (now mainly found in adventure movies), to Roman aqueducts and the timber trestle railway bridges of the American West, to today's modern marvels, such as the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge, which has the largest span in the world. Blockley outlines the forces at work on a bridge–tension, compression, and shear–and the basic structural elements that combat these forces–beams, arches, trusses, and suspensions (or BATS). As he does so, he explores some of the great bridges around the world, including such lesser-known masterpieces as the Forth Railway Bridge (featured in Alfred Hitchcock's The Thirty-Nine Steps ), and describes some spectacular failures, such as the recent bridge collapse in Minnesota or the famous failure of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in 1940. For instance, Blockley discusses the London's Millennium Bridge–the blade of light across the Thames–which displayed an alarming wobble when opened. He explains that when people walk, they not only exert force directly forward, but also exert a lesser force to the side, and the Millennium Bridge engineers did not consider this tiny lateral movement in their otherwise meticulous design. Amazingly enough, this minor omission caused a wobble severe enough to close the bridge for two years. Bridge building is a magnificent example of the practical use of science. But as Blockley shows in this illuminating book, engineers must go beyond science, blending technical experience and creativity to build the spans that connect us all.

Profit and Principle: Hugo Grotius, Natural Rights Theories and the Rise of Dutch Power in the East Indies, 1595-1615 By Martine Julia Van Ittersum, Hugo Grotius
Publisher: B.r.i.l.l Acad..emic 2006 | 608 Pages | ISBN: 9004149791 | PDF | 5 MB

Profit and Principle: Hugo Grotius, Natural Rights Theories and the Rise of Dutch Power in the East Indies, 1595-1615
This monograph is a study of the interaction of politics and political theory in The Netherlands in the early seventeenth century. Its focal point is the Dutch jurist Hugo Grotius, who developed his rights and contract theories for the benefit of the United Dutch East India Company, otherwise known as the VOC (Vereenighde Oostindische
Compagnie). Grotius can be regarded as one of the founding fathers of the First Dutch Empire, the seventeenth century global trading network that centered upon the United Provinces, particularly Holland and Zeeland, yet stretched all the way to the Russian port of Murmansk in the north, the Japanese harbor of Nagasaki in the east, Cape Town in the south and New Amsterdam, nowadays known as New York, in the west.

Otherwise Engaged: How Leaders Can Get a Firmer Grip on Employee Engagement and Other Key Intangibles by John Guaspari
English | Feb 23, 2015 | ISBN: 1938548337 | 168 Pages | EPUB/MOBI/AZW/PDF (Converted) | 6 MB
Ask leaders what their biggest challenge is, and they're likely to say: "It's the people part of the job the soft stuff the so-called intangibles." And for years, honorable, intelligent leaders have been making good-faith, well-funded efforts to address this challenge.

Otherwise Engaged: How Leaders Can Get a Firmer Grip on Employee Engagement and Other Key Intangibles
But they invariably come up short. And when they do, they try again. And then again. And yet again. Otherwise Engaged shines a bright light on the cause of this challenge: a fundamental misunderstanding of the true nature of the intangibles. It's a how-to book in that it focuses on the too-often overlooked first step in any such effort: How to stop doing the things that cause people to dis-engage. Once leaders gain a better, deeper understanding of the true nature of the intangibles, they'll discover that they already know what to do in order to be more effective in this domain. No need to master new knowledge or techniques. No need for the excess baggage that comes with big, organization-wide programs or initiatives. Otherwise Engaged shows leaders how to get a grip on the intangibles. Through a story told in a light, humorous style, the author helps readers discover what the problem is. In the process, they'll develop a felt need to challenge the assumptions under which they've been working and to become more open to the possibility of considering a different way. Readers will discover: -How to recognize and embrace the fact that the Intangibles are intangible -Why employee engagement can be a trap and how to avoid it -How to create a culture where employees feel empowered -Why leaders so often do the wrong things to elicit trust and respect -Why good faith efforts to promulgate values throughout an organization can be ineffectual and, in some cases, even damaging The book offers specific, prescriptive steps to more effectively deal with the intangibles, showing readers how to become Otherwise Engaged: by adopting an approach to engagement that's other than the traditional one, and by insuring that this approach has a laser-sharp focus on how what's done (and not done) and said (and not said) affects the other person.

Expert Oracle SQL: Optimization, Deployment, and Statistics EPUB
is about optimizing individual SQL statements, especially on production database systems. This Oracle-specific book begins by assuming you have already identified a particular SQL statement and are considering taking steps to improve its performance. The book describes a systematic process by which to diagnose a problem statement, identify a fix, and to implement that fix safely in a production system. You'll learn not only to improve performance when it is too slow, but also to stabilize performance when it is too variable. You'll learn about system statistics and how the Cost-Based Optimizer uses them to determine a suitable execution plan for a given statement. That knowledge provides the foundation from which to identify the root cause, and to stabilize and improve performance. Next after identifying a problem and the underlying root cause is to put in place a solution. explains how to apply various remedies such as changing the SQL statement, adding hints, changing the physical design, and more, and how they can be brought to bear on fixing a problem once and for all. Rolling a change out smoothly is an important topic when dealing with tuning and optimization. does not let you down in this critical area. The book contains two chapters of good information from an experienced professional on how to safely deploy changes into production so that your systems remaining running and available throughout the deployment process.

Burning Japan: Air Force Bombing Strategy Change in the Pacific

FREEDownload : Burning Japan: Air Force Bombing Strategy Change in the Pacific

Burning Japan: Air Force Bombing Strategy Change in the Pacific by Daniel T. Schwabe
English | Jan 1, 2015 | ISBN: 1612346391 | 280 Pages | EPUB/MOBI/AZW3/PDF (Converted) | 11 MB
Between the grinding battles of the Philippines, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa and the finality of the atomic bomb strikes on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the U. S. Air Force conducted a bombing campaign against the Japanese home islands that escalated to new levels of destruction.

Burning Japan: Air Force Bombing Strategy Change in the Pacific
Burning Japan is an investigation of how and why the air force shifted its tactics against Japan from a precision bombing strategy to area attacks. The guiding doctrine of the 1930s and 1940s called for focused attacks on specific targets deep behind enemy lines. Eager to prove itself, the nascent Army Air Force at first lauded the indispensability of strategic bombardment in areas otherwise unreachable by the army or navy. But when strategic bombing failed to yield the desired results in Europe and in initial efforts against Japan, the United States switched tactics, a shift that culminated in the area firebombing of nearly every major Japanese metropolis and the burning of sixty-six cities to the ground.

Daniel T. Schwabe closely examines the planning and implementation of these incendiary missions to determine how an organization dedicated to precision decided on such a dramatic change in tactics. Ultimately, Schwabe maintains, this strategic reimagining helped create a comprehensive offensive strategy that did immense amounts of destruction which crippled Japan and brought an end to World War II.
