  • Information security does not guarantee the safety of your organization or your information or your computer systems. Information security cannot, in and of itself, provide protection for your information. That being said, information security is also not a black art. There is no sorcery to implementing proper information security and the concepts that are included in information security are not rocket science. In many ways, information security is a mindset. It is a mindset of examining the threats and vulnerabilities of your organization and managing them appropriately.

  • Wireless communications is rapidly becoming one of the ubiquitous technological underpinnings of modern society (such as electric power, fossil fuels, automobiles, etc.). Few people think about the technology within their mobile phones, remote controls, garage door openers, GPS navigation devices, and so on. They are always at hand and reliably work for the user. Yet even within the electrical engineering (EE) community, radio communication techniques have a reputation as a “Black Art” that can only be successfully practiced by “RF people”. This is changing, albeit slowly.

  • The definition of gender roles is so central in Afghan society and culture, that any perceived or planned changes require consultations not only with the household but also with the larger community. Men and women to a large extent share the same cultural ethos and values, including their conception of gender roles, and they seek to validate these within their communities. Years of turmoil have furthermore left communities to their own devices, strengthening the inherent distrust of external authorities and increased reliance upon conservative values.

  • If we live, we die. It is that simple and that complex. If we love someone or even like him or her a lot, it hurts when he or she dies, and we feel a sense of loss. Sometimes the hurt is manageable and we are able to regroup, rebound, and move on with our lives, holding on to memories or feelings about the dead person. Sometimes we are not able to move forward, getting immersed in the sadness and pain of our loss. Fortunately, there are people who are trained to help those who get stuck on their journey from loss....

  • The key driver of the Financial Crisis of 2007–2008 is the interplay of the following six forces, each of which can be linked to the misperception, misunderstanding, and the active hiding of the risks of consequential but low probability events (“Black Swans”) by those that stood to benefit from the obscuring of consequential risk. Other diagnoses, for example those of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, focus more on epiphenomenal aspects of the crisis such as excessive borrowing, risky investments, opacity of markets, or failures of corporate governance.

  • Within the past decade, scholars have begun to reveal the important role African American midwives played in the reproductive experiences of southern women, both black and white. This book is a contribution to the documentation of that African American presence. It is also a requiem to the knowledge, skills, and beliefs that have been lost. If, thanks to the classic movie Gone with the Wind, popular imagery has the African American woman faced with the prospect of having to help deliver a baby being completely hysterical, then recent scholarship counters that portrayal.

  • The decline of print on paper spans beyond just newspapers. The proportion reading a magazine in print yesterday has declined over the same period (26% in 2000, 18% today). And as email, text messaging and social networking become dominant forms of communication, the percentage saying they wrote or received a personal letter the previous day also has fallen, from 20% in 2006 to 12% currently. There has been no decrease in recent years in the percentage reading a book on a typical day, but a growing share is now reading through an electronic or audio device. ...
