As a software engineer, you recognize at some point that there's much more to your career than dealing with code. Is it time to become a manager? Tell your boss he’s a jerk? Join that startup? Author Michael Lopp recalls his own make-or-break moments with Silicon Valley giants such as Apple, Netscape, and Symantec in Being Geek -- an insightful and entertaining book that will help you make better career decisions.
The purposes of this handbook are to provide a forum for presentation of the
current state of knowledge about women in business and management and
to specify the directions for future research that will be most constructive
for advancing the representation, treatment, quality of life and success of
women who work in these fi elds. In this sense, we hope that the Handbook
on Women in Business and Management will serve as a reference for recent
advances in research and theory, informing both scholars and those with a
general interest in the subject....

Audience: Students should write for a range of audiences and adapt their style and
tone so that it is appropriate to the task and audience. Students must be able to take
into consideration an audience’s characteristics, such as its background knowledge,
its interests, and its potential objections to an argument. Strong, effective writing can
overcome or at least influence an audience’s biases and address its limitations.
Success in writing and winning grants comes through practice-based effort,
sustained enthusiasm, tenacity, and a commitment to turn temporary set-
backs (i.e., proposal rejections) into renewed efforts and grant awards.
Few educators or librarians begin their professional careers prepared to par-
ticipate in the grant seeking process. As their careers evolve, they recognize
and understand economic realities. Without supplemental funding, schools
and their media centers are often forced to choose between essential and
E-mail and the Internet now make day to day to
communication easier to organise, but distance

action plan with proper phases; to plan meetings
carefully; to specify deliverables and to keep to

The ﬁrst chapter (236) in this volume of the Handbook on the Physics and Chem-
istry of Rare Earth is a recapitulation of the scientiﬁc achievements and contri-
butions made by the late Professor LeRoy Eyring (1919–2005) to the science of
the lanthanide oxides in which the lanthanide element has a valence equal to or
greater than three. Although LeRoy had a broad range of interests in the chemistry
of the rare earths and actinides the main focus of his outstanding scientiﬁc career
was concerned with the lanthanide higher oxides. This chapter was written by Dr.
Engineers apply mathematics and sciences such as physics to find suitable solutions to problems or to make improvements to the status quo. More than ever, engineers are now required to have knowledge of relevant sciences for their design projects. As a result, they may keep on learning new material throughout their career.

It is unlikely that a person would wake up one morning and
say, “Grief, what a concept, I think I’ll make it my life’s work.”
That is not how it happened for either of us. We are John W.
James and Russell Friedman, and together we represent the
Grief Recovery Institute.
Here is a little outline of our lives, the institute, and the evolution
of The Grief Recovery Handbook.
John was thrust painfully into this arena by the death of a
child in 1977. After discovering a successful process for completing
his grief, he continued his career in the solar energy
Microscopy is a servant of all the sciences, and the microscopic examination
of minerals is an important technique which should be mastered by
all students of geology early in their careers. Advanced modern textbooks
on both optics and mineralogy are available, and our intention is
not that this new textbook should replace these but that it should serve
as an introductory text or a first stepping-stone to the study of optical
The result of months of intensive investigations and inquiries by a specially appointed bipartisan panel, The 9/11 Commission Report is one of the most important historical documents of the modern era. And while that fact alone makes it worth owning, it is also a chilling and valuable piece of nonfiction: a comprehensive and alarming look at one of the biggest intelligence failures in history and the events that led up to it. The commission traces the roots of al-Qaeda's strategies along with the emergence of the 19 hijackers and how they...
