This book is a direct outgrowth of my experiences teaching C++ to professional programmers. I've found that most students, after a week of intensive instruction, feel comfortable with the basic constructs of the language, but they tend to be less sanguine about their ability to put the constructs together in an effective manner.

The accounting department is a cost center. It does not directly generate revenues,
but rather provides a fixed set of services to the rest of a company, and is asked to
do so at the lowest possible cost. Consequently, the accounting staff is called
upon to process transactions, write reports, create new processes or investigate
old ones—while doing so as an ever-shrinking proportion of total expenses.

Being a leader is tougher than ever! Workplaces are more complex and competitive. Change is occurring at the speed of light. Work relationships need to be built in broader, matrixed, and more global organizations. Today’s leaders need new skills and more support to respond to the challenges and opportunities that rocket their way like water out of a fire hose. I have great respect for the people who take on the role of leader.
Great leaders are able to make a significant difference. They shape results and our work experience. Being a leader can also be a stressful and thankless job....
Few will deny that the increasingly omnipresent nature of the World Wide
Web in the workplace is dramatically revolutionizing the manner in which we
work. The advantages of the World Wide Web are the ability to gather, communicate,
distribute, share, and store information publicly in real time (Davis
& Naumann, 1999). The reach and range of the World Wide Web is phenomenal
(Evans & Wurster, 2000) and employees have increasingly been given
access to it in the workplace.
Tips for Giving Effective Presentations
Below are a few tips offered by seasoned speakers to help you get started or just brush up on giving effective presentations. Start with a style that is comfortable to you. As you get more experience, you can build on your skills. Good speakers, like other performers, must rehearse. They master their subject matter so it is second nature. This frees them to pay attention to the audience, to make eye contact, and to avoid distracting mannerisms, such as saying “uh” or “basically.
QuickSteps books are recipe books for computer users. They
answer the question “How do I...?” by providing quick sets
of steps to accomplish the most common tasks in a particular
program. The sets of steps are the central focus of the book.
QuickSteps sidebars show you how to quickly do many small
functions or tasks that support the primary functions. Notes,
Tips, and Cautions augment the steps, yet they are presented
in such a manner as to not interrupt the fl ow of the steps.
The area of gastrointestinal oncology is an active one. Both clinical research and basic
research have come together and changed the diagnostic and treatment protocols for a
number of deadly malignancies. A multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and treatment
appears to be the best paradigm; it allows for each individual medical specialty to
apply their knowledge and expertise in an expeditious and effective manner.
The all-too-common conditions this woman and her children face illustrate how health programs and weak systems in
many developing countries are not meeting needs. Although health services may be available, too often they are of poor
quality and are provided in an uncoordinated or ad hoc manner. Often, they are organized around funding sources or
diseases, rather than in a way that addresses the broader needs of the populations they seek to serve.
Pharmacologically induced sedation has become pervasive throughout
medical practice to accomplish diagnostic and minor therapeutic procedures
effectively and humanely. As diagnostic techniques and technical procedures
become more complex, the need for sedation in patients with varied
co-morbid conditions, in diverse settings produces a series of questions
regarding safety and effectiveness.
Knowledge transfer within an organization may be
thought of as the process by which an organization
makes available knowledge about routines to its
members, and is a common phenomenon that can
be an effective way for organizations to extend
knowledge bases and leverage unique skills in a
relatively cost-effective manner. With the increasing
resource-based focus in strategy research,
knowledge and ways to develop and leverage it
have become key strategic issues (Barney, 1991;
There was a need to bring
this information together in a single volume, as much of the key recent developments
have been dispersed throughout the biomedical literature, largely in specialized
journals. Since, as in the past, important developments in immunosuppressive
therapy in one branch of medicine (i.e. transplantation) are likely to benefit another
I also wish to thank Prof. Dr. Thomas Dyllick, the co-advisor of my dissertation. His intellec-
tual capacity always enabled him to provide constructive feedback and orientation, which he
always presented in a very friendly manner. And whenever I myself had doubts about any
particular weakness in my dissertation, I could be sure he had already identified it. Finally,
my thanks go to Prof. Dr. Christoph Lechner who – without having a formal role in my dis-
sertation – never hesitated to challenge my thoughts and provide helpful feedback.
Data networks developed as a result of business applications that were written for microcomputers. At that
time microcomputers were not connected as mainframe computer terminals were, so there was no efficient
way of sharing data among multiple microcomputers. It became apparent that sharing data through the use of
floppy disks was not an efficient or cost-effective manner in which to operate businesses.
Presentations play an important role in both your education and career at all levels. Presentations include the integration of all skills -- reading, writing, listening, speaking, and research -- to make oral and visual communication serve an aim. In education, the aim can be to give new or cumulative information, and in the business world, to introduce new products or services and/ or revamp existing ones.
