Soft Target Hardening: Protecting People from Attack
Terrorist attacks occur daily and are increasingly being aimed at civilian populations around the world. Battlefield lines have been redrawn to include churches, schools, hospitals, and malls. This breach of moral boundary is shocking and invokes fear-two primary goals of terrorism.
Although there is an increase in soft target activity-or attacks on places of worship, study, and leisure-there is hesitation to explore such susceptibility in the United States. starts the national dialogue by providing case studies, best practices, and methodologies for identifying soft target vulnerabilities and reducing risk in the US. Offering deterrence and mitigation techniques from more than 275 sources, this comprehensive book:

Explores US cultural nuances contributing to the country turning a psychological blind eye toward soft target threats
Assesses the attractiveness of soft target threats presented by foreign and domestic terror groups and drug trafficking organizations
Analyzes the unique vulnerabilities of churches, schools, hospitals, malls, sporting and recreational events, and other soft targets
Gives an overview of soft target hardening tactics from global hotspots, including first-person accounts and photographs
Introduces the concept of effects-based hardening, derived from the military model of effects-based operations
Discusses emerging soft target challenges such as insider threats, kidnapping, and use of human shields
Evaluates the likelihood of the use of weapons of mass destruction against civilian-centric venues
is a must read for those who secure, own, and operate soft target facilities, and for citizens who want to protect themselves and their families from attack.

Novel Methods in Soft Matter Simulations
English | Physics, Mechanics | 15. March 2004 | ISBN-10: 3540209166 | 393 pages | Djvu | 3 mb
Soft matter and biological systems pose many challenges for theoretical, experimental and computational research.

Novel Methods in Soft Matter Simulations
From the computational point of view, these many-body sytems cover variations in relevant time and length scales over many orders of magnitude. Indeed, the macroscopic properties of materials and complex fluids are ultimately to be deduced from the dynamics of the microsopic, molecular level. In these lectures, internationally renowned experts offer a tutorial presentation of novel approaches for bridging these space and time scales in realistic simulations. This volume addresses graduate students and nonspecialist researchers from related areas seeking a high-level but accessible introduction to the state of the art in soft matter simulations.

Otherwise Engaged: How Leaders Can Get a Firmer Grip on Employee Engagement and Other Key Intangibles

FREEDownload : Otherwise Engaged: How Leaders Can Get a Firmer Grip on Employee Engagement and Other Key Intangibles

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.

Essentials of Plastic Surgery

FREEDownload : Essentials of Plastic Surgery

Essentials of Plastic Surgery By Jeffrey E. Janis
2007 | 941 Pages | ISBN: 1576262081 | scanned PDF | 42 MB

Essentials of Plastic Surgery
is destined to become a favorite with all students of plastic surgery, whether residents in training or experienced practitioners. Small enough to fit in a lab coat pocket, but comprehensive enough to cover the essential topics in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, this exceptional manual is just the resource that you have been looking for. It will prove invaluable as a quick reference in daily practice, when studying for the boards, or simply as a refresher when confronting a difficult clinical problem.

This book evolved from the outstanding plastic surgery training program at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas where Dr. Janis trained and is on staff. Contributors are drawn from current residents and fellows from the program who share their practical, hands-on experience.

Concise Yet Comprehensive Coverage
This practical manual provides essential information in a convenient and easily accessible outline format. Composed of 88 chapters, the book is divided into 7 separate sections:
Fundamentals and Basics
Skin and Soft Tissue
Head and Neck
Breast
Trunk and Lower Extremity
Hand, Wrist, and Upper Extremity
Aesthetic Surgery

Unlike many handbooks, this book does not skimp on aesthetic surgery information; face lift, neck lift, fillers, and breast augmentation are given equal time with reconstructive topics such as wound healing, flaps, and microsurgery. A detailed bibliography is included at the end of each chapter to direct the reader to additional resource material.

Design Enhances Readability and Practicality

This handbook's design and organization allow quick and easy reading. The outline format permits optimal coverage of information and facilitates retention and understanding. Bulleted lists, tables, boxes, and numerous illustrations help to illuminate key points and important information. In addition, the two-color design increases the text's readability and makes it easier to locate information.

No other plastic surgery handbook provides as much information in such a compact format.

Body Wisdom: Natural Health in You

FREEDownload : Body Wisdom: Natural Health in You

Body Wisdom: Natural Health in You by Mrs. Beatrice RD Hair MAED
English | Dec 22, 2014 | ISBN: 1503147312 | 158 Pages | EPUB/MOBI/AZW3/PDF (Converted) | 21 MB
IS YOUR LIFESTYLE free of toxins? Toxins are man-made chemicals that your body is not naturally geared to handle. Body Wisdom-Natural Health in You will help you re-organize your kitchen, foster the development of a healthier attitude, modify your behavior to achieve your goals, brainstorm dietary needs and identify suitable meal replacements and find easy, tasty recipes to get you started.

Body Wisdom: Natural Health in You
This book is based on the premise that our bodies absorb too many man-made toxins. This cannot be stopped entirely; however, it can be minimized through awareness and with an effective plan. Genetics load the gun, but lifestyle is what pulls the trigger. The ultimate goal is healthy body equilibrium. An illness needs sugar and toxins to survive, so the solution is to not open the door to illness. Chronic consumption of refined sugar, such as those in soft drinks and many of the pre-made sugar treats provide the groundwork for disease. Changing what you eat is the key here. The average American adult eats about twenty-two teaspoons of sugar a day; many of these sugars are hidden in our processed foods. Remove toxins from your kitchen, and focus on keeping your digestive track healthy. How will you know what to throw out? You have to use all tools available to you to discover what you need to eat and what you need to avoid. What helped me was to toss out anything with white refined sugar, soy, flour, gluten, corn, and most dairy. The goal is to eat so deliciously that you will not miss anything you have removed from your diet. You will want to do a little research on your condition – to discover what nature has provided to help you heal. If you are healing high cholesterol, your diet could include almonds, olive oil, pumpkin seeds and green tea. If you are healing cancer, foods to include are cruciferous vegetables, non-hormone-treated meats, fruits, seeds, grains, nuts and dark chocolate–see my sugar free, toxic free, dairy free recipe on page 130. Food is your medicine. I am very grateful for modern medicine, for excellent emergency care and powerful medical help but, as a nation, are we doing enough to ward off preventable diseases? Millions of Americans each year are diagnosed with a dangerous disease. One out of every four Americans will be diagnosed with cancer! One out of every eight women in America will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Once you have a disease, you will pay top dollar to treat it. Why not invest in an organic, toxin free, preventative plan? After your kitchen changeover, how do you eat the new food? I have included some meal replacement ideas. Your meal replacement plan will be unique to you. You will create meal replacements for what you normally eat and Body Wisdom-Natural Health in You will help you. Negative feelings such as dread, fear, anxiety and worry cause your body to react as if a tiger were coming after you. The point here is that negative thoughts and feelings are unhealthy and should be avoided. When your cortisol and adrenalin are in high gear, your body automatically shuts down your digestive system. Monitoring and changing your thoughts is crucial. Let's create your own behavior modification plan. This is a tool I have successfully used for students of all ages at my tutoring franchise over 6,000 times. If you make yourself accountable, you will stay with the program. The key to behavior modification is a combination of things-right thinking and a support person. This person will not allow you to sabotage yourself. We all modify behavior at our own pace. Do not lose heart if you fail to complete the first eight weeks successfully. It took many years to get where you are now, and it will take time to arrive at your new destination. Life is a learning journey. You do not have to be an A+ student to succeed. Go at your own pace. Even changing one bad habit is a great accomplishment. If you learn from your failures, they become a part of your success.
