This grandfather of all people-skills books was first published in 1937. It was an overnight hit, eventually selling 15 million copies. How to Win Friends and Influence People is just as useful today as it was when it was first published, because Dale Carnegie had an understanding of human nature that will never be outdated. Financial success, Carnegie believed, is due 15 percent to professional knowledge and 85 percent to "the ability to express ideas, to assume leadership, and to arouse enthusiasm among people." Carnegie says you can make someone want to do what you want them to by seeing...

Surface water treatment is a controversial issue. A healthy balance between possible risks, such as
immediate microbiological contamination and long-term carcinogenic effects due to dsinfection byproducts,
and the treatment costs is required. Another issue of concern relates to drinking water
standards, whch seem unreasonably strict in some countries and practically absent in others. The price
people are required to pap for their water varies with the standards.
[ Team LiB ] Using Email Attachments As more and more people get broadband connections to the Internet and mailbox size limits increase, including attachments, especially large ones, on email messages is something few of us think twice about these days. It's easier for the sender to attach the file to the email than it is to provide a link to a download on a public server. And it's often easier for the recipient to download the file with his email than to download it from a server. Many corporations delete all attachments from incoming email in an effort to...

In the past, the government often tried to ensure that we pay "a fair rate" of interest by
implementing usury ceilings or limits on the rates that lenders can charge. During the 1980s
there was a general trend toward eliminating or raising these limits as policy-makers
reacted to the high inflation and record interest rates of the late 1970s. During the early
1990s, however, the trend reversed as some suggested that caps should be placed on credit
card rates, which remained at historically high levels while other key interest rates declined

Lotfi Zadeh, the father of fuzzy logic, coined the phrase computing with words (CWW) to describe a methodology in which the computation objects are words drawn from a natural language. This text explains how to implement CWW for making subjective judgments using the three components of a Perceptual Computer (encoder, CWW engines, and decoder) and then providing detailed applications. The coverage divides the content into application chapters and detail chapters, including brief summaries of detail chapters for readers more interested in applications.
When people ask me what I do, in addition to telling them I can show them: I can pull out
my cell phone and demonstrate some of the games I’ve written for it. It’s a great time to be
a software developer because a pastime that’s so much fun—writing games for cell phones
and mobile devices—is now a huge growth industry.
The number of cell phones worldwide is well over
