    Abstract: In this Web 2.0 era, small business owners are at a severe disadvantage because they have minimal, if any, knowledge, about Internet marketing.

This do-it-yourself book provides the know-how that's needed to win business in cyberspace while eliminating the need for a large marketing budget. In just an hour or two a week, the small business owner will gain control of his or her Internet marketing campaign, using the step-by-step method Perlman presents. Specifically, readers will learn the keys to improving their search-engine ranking (the critical driver of traffic to a Website), how to create and manage blogs and e-newsletters and, finally, the secrets to a successful, sales-driven website.

    Abstract: Innovative strategic management solutions for today's market Strategic Value Management addresses common problems among business managers and other professionals involved in thinking about developing and managing organizations. In it, author Juan Pablo Stegmann integrates all strategic management and business strategy into an innovative standard that introduces key metrics to strategic management and stock value creation. He argues that most complex business issues can be reduced to the three dimensions of stock value creation-profits, sales growth, and capital-that are linked to three critical strategic management decisions-competition, innovation, and resources. His new approach indicates that every strategy has a clear dollar metric, which can measure its consequences of the strategies in terms of stock value. Competitive and growth strategies are analyzed along with economic, financial, dynamic, and contingent approaches Includes a companion CD-ROM, which contains Stegmann's proven model for strategic management and stock value creation Ethical consequences of strategic decisions are introduced-showing how ethics are linked to long-term stock value creation Explains the roots of the current financial crisis by examining the link between the financial world and strategic management, and proposes possible solutions For any looking to enhance their understanding of this discipline, Strategic Value Management offers a new conceptual model for thinking about business strategy and its link to stock value creation.

    Abstract: A fascinating, research-based look at the impact of social media on businesses and consumers around the world, and what's in store for the future Social Media. You've heard the term, even if you don't use the tools. But just how big has social media become? Social media has officially surpassed pornography as the top activity on the Internet. People would rather give up their e-mail than their social network. It is so powerful that it is causing a macro shift in the way we live and conduct business. Brands can now be strengthened or destroyed by the use of social media. Online networking sites are being used as giant, free focus groups. Advertising is less effective at influencing consumers than the opinions of their peers. If you aren't using social media in your business strategy, you are already behind your competition. Explores how the concept of ""Socialnomics"" is changing the way businesses produce, market, and sell, eliminating inefficient marketing and middlemen, and making products easier and cheaper for consumers to obtain Learn how successful businesses are connecting with consumers like never before via Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and other social media sites A must-read for anyone wanting to learn about, and harness the power of social media, rather than be squashed by it Author Erik Qualman is a former online marketer for several Top 100 brands and the current Global Vice President of Online Marketing for the world's largest private education firm Socialnomics is essential book for anyone who wants to understand the implications of social media, and how businesses can tap the power of social media to increase their sales, cut their marketing costs, and reach consumers directly.

    Abstract: Coaching Brain in Mind Foundations for Practice David Rock and Linda J. Page, PhD Discover the science behind brain-based coaching By understanding how the brain works, coaching professionals can better tailor their language, strategies, and goals to be in alignment with an individual's "hard-wired" way of thinking. Written by two well-known coaching professionals, David Rock and Linda Page, Coaching with the Brain in Mind presents the tools and methodologies that can be employed by novice and experienced coaches alike to create an effective-and ultimately more rewarding-relationship for both coach and client. This informative guide to the neuroscience of coaching clearly demonstrates how brain-based coaching works in practice, and how the power of the mind can be harnessed to help an individual learn and grow. Illustrated with numerous case examples and stories, this book is organized for immediate use by professionals in their client work. Coverage includes: A succinct but comprehensive overview of the major scientific and theoretical foundations for coaching and their implications for practice How the language of coaching-setting goals, making connections, becoming more aware, seeking breakthroughs, and taking action-parallels what neuroscientists tell us about how the brain operates Neuroscience as a natural platform for the ongoing development of coaching Building on the existing foundation of coaching by adding neuroscience as an evidence base for the profession, Coaching with the Brain in Mind shows that it is possible to become a better professional coach by understanding how the brain works. As well, the authors, through their research, present that an understanding of neuroscience research, however new and speculative, can help coaches and leaders fulfill their potential as change agents in the lives of others.

    Abstract: Treats joint source and channel decoding in an integrated way Gives a clear description of the problems in the field together with the mathematical tools for their solution Contains many detailed examples useful for practical applications of the theory to video broadcasting over mobile and wireless networks Traditionally, cross-layer and joint source-channel coding were seen as incompatible with classically structured networks but recent advances in theory changed this situation. Joint source-channel decoding is now seen as a viable alternative to separate decoding of source and channel codes, if the protocol layers are taken into account. A joint source/protocol/channel approach is thus addressed in this book: all levels of the protocol stack are considered, showing how the information in each layer influences the others. This book provides the tools to show how cross-layer and joint source-channel coding and decoding are now compatible with present-day mobile and wireless networks, with a particular application to the key area of video transmission to mobiles. Typical applications are broadcasting, or point-to-point delivery of multimedia contents, which are very timely in the context of the current development of mobile services such as audio (MPEG4 AAC) or video (H263, H264) transmission using recent wireless transmission standards (DVH-H, DVB-SH, WiMAX, LTE). This cross-disciplinary book is ideal for graduate students, researchers, and more generally professionals working either in signal processing for communications or in networking applications, interested in reliable multimedia transmission. This book is also of interest to people involved in cross-layer optimization of mobile networks. Its content may provide them with other points of view on their optimization problem, enlarging the set of tools which they could use. Pierre Duhamel is director of research at CNRS/ LSS and has previously held research positions at Thomson-CSF, CNET, and ENST, where he was head of the Signal and Image Processing Department.

    Abstract: Appropriez-vous le système Android conçu par Google pour équiper les téléphones mobiles et les netbooks et affranchissez-vous des limites habituelles : accédez à toutes les couches basses du système pour exécuter un shell, développer des scripts, installer des modules Linux... L'image système étudiée dans ce livre est tirée du prototype Android fourni pour les TP d'un cours ambitieux donné en 2009 à l'École Polytechnique, "Composants d'un système informatique", visant à présenter toutes les couches d'un ordinateur, depuis l'interface utilisateur jusqu'au noyau. Les travaux pratiques présentaient un sérieux défi : les élèves utilisaient chacun leur propre ordinateur portable (avec l'hétérogénéité que cela implique, en terme de systèmes d'exploitations, notamment), mais devaient tous pouvoir faire les exercices portant sur des programmes Java, des scripts shell, des modules Linux... Après avoir envisagé plusieurs solutions, le choix se porta sur Android, qui n'existait à l'époque que sous la forme d'un émulateur. Cette plate-forme permettait à tous les élèves d'utiliser le même système, et gérait directement le langage Java. Mais en l'état, il n'était pas possible d'accéder aux couches Linux, ni d'écrire des scripts et d'utiliser un shell. Il fut donc décidé de modifier l'image système d'Android pour pouvoir s'affranchir de ces limites. Le prototype qui fut fourni aux élèves ressemblait fort à l'image système étudiée dans ce livre.

    Abstract: Présentation Manager à cerveau total Pourquoi pouvons-nous faire preuve d'intelligence et d'efficacité dans certaines situations et nous montrer parfaitement inaptes dans telles autres ? Selon le modèle développé par Ned Herrmann et inspiré des découvertes en neurosciences, chacun agit en fonction de préférences cérébrales qui conditionnent la manière de se comporter et d'apprendre. Représenté sous la forme d'un cercle divisé en quatre quadrants, ce modèle détermine quatre grandes familles de traitement de l'information : logique, organisé, émotif, intuitif. Spécialiste du sujet, Stéphane Demilly propose aux managers de mieux cerner les préférences et les talents de leurs collaborateurs afin de déterminer les activités dans lesquelles ils seront les meilleurs et les plus épanouis. En parcourant cet ouvrage, chaque manager découvrira un outil simple et efficace d'analyse des comportements humains et parviendra enfin à mettre en musique les talents de chacun. Au sommaire Les composantes de l'approche Hermann L'approche Hermann : un transfert métaphorique de la neurologie vers le comportemental...

    Abstract: Part of a series of core databooks within the William Andrew Plastics Design Library, Fatigue and Tribological Properties of Plastics and Elastomers provides a comprehensive collection of graphical multipoint data and tabular data covering fatigue and tribology. The concept of fatigue is very straightforward: if an object is subjected to a stress or deformation, and it is repeated, the object becomes weaker. This weakening of plastic material is called fatigue. Tribology is the science and technology of surfaces in contact with each other and therefore covers friction, lubrication and wear. The reduction of wear and fatigue and the improvement of lubrication are key bottom-line issues for engineers and scientists involved in the plastics industry and product design with plastics. Fatigue and Tribological Properties of Plastics and Elastomers, 2e, is an update of all that has changed in the world of plastics since the 1st edition appeared nearly 15 years ago, and has been reorganized from a polymer chemistry point of view. A hard-working reference tool: part of the daily workflow of engineers and scientists involved in the plastics industry and product design with plastics The reduction of wear and fatigue and the improvement of lubrication are key bottom-line issues The data in this book provide engineers with the tools they need to design for low failure rates

    Abstract: An Entirely New Way to Look at Human Resources in the Public Sector What makes a good worker? Why do some people naturally do well at their jobs while others struggle? These questions are at the heart of the human resource (HR) profession. And while there is no shortage of theories about how people achieve success, no one has explained the entire body of HR theories. Until now. In A Human Resources Framework for the Public Sector, Dixon Southworth offers a fresh, new perspective on HR management with the first comprehensive theoretical framework for work performance, tying human resource theories, concepts, and concerns to public administration. With the introduction of the Work Performance Framework (WPF), Southworth offers a roadmap for work performance in the nonprofit and public sectors that focuses on three fundamental objectives of HR programs and services: build human resource capacity, build performance, and build community.

    Abstract: Présentation Dans cet e-book, 58 optiques Nikon compatibles avec le boîtier numérique D90 à capteur 16 x 24 mm de 12 millions de pixels sont présentées et analysées selon leur piqué, leur vignetage, leur aberration chromatique et leur distorsion. Chaque fiche présente ces résultats, qui sont identiques à ceux obtenus avec le D300 à capteur similaire, et commente les performances et l'usage que l'on peut attendre de ces optiques. Le D90 n'étant pas compatible avec la mesure de la lumière des anciennes optiques manuelles des années 1960 à 1980, ce sont les modèles autofocus qui ont été retenus dans ce recueil, qui intègre bien entendu la gamme Nikon DX spécialement destinée aux reflex numériques à petit capteur. Un large choix de focales de 10 à 300 mm est passé en revue, y compris les récentes optiques manuelles à décentrement compatibles avec le D90. L'auteur, qui a une longue expérience des matériels Nikon et des évaluations d'optiques, présente aussi les principaux atouts du boîtier D90 et les réglages de base que l'on peut utiliser pour réussir ses images. Au sommaire Le système reflex Nikon À l'origine le mythique Nikon F L'apogée des boîtiers manuels La révolution de l'autofocus Les premiers reflex Nikon numériques Le choix initial du format DX La gamme amateur expert Les modèles DX de 12 millions de pixels Nikon DX et compatibilité des optiques Découvrir et configurer le Nikon D90 Découverte de l'appareil Quelques réglages à maîtriser Qualité et taille d'image Optimisation d'image Exposition et D-Lighting Sensibilité et bruit numérique Les mesures et la qualité optique La mesure du piqué Les tests en format A3 à 254 dpi La variabilité du piqué selon le logiciel L'influence de l'aberration chromatique Des défauts de piqué moins quantifiables Le vignetage La distorsion Les défauts propres à un exemplaire d'une optique Apprécier la qualité globale ?

    Abstract: Discover how technology is affecting your business, and why typical security mechanisms are failing to address the issue of risk and trust. Security for a Web 2.0+ World looks at the perplexing issues of cyber security, and will be of interest to those who need to know how to make effective security policy decisions to engineers who design ICT systems - a guide to information security and standards in the Web 2.0+ era. It provides an understanding of IT security in the converged world of communications technology based on the Internet Protocol. Many companies are currently applying security models following legacy policies or ad-hoc solutions. A series of new security standards (ISO/ITU) allow security professionals to talk a common language. By applying a common standard, security vendors are able to create products and services that meet the challenging security demands of technology further diffused from the central control of the local area network. Companies are able to prove and show the level of maturity of their security solutions based on their proven compliance of the recommendations defined by the standard. Carlos Solari and his team present much needed information and a broader view on why and how to use and deploy standards. They set the stage for a standards-based approach to design in security, driven by various factors that include securing complex information-communications systems, the need to drive security in product development, the need to better apply security funds to get a better return on investment. Security applied after complex systems are deployed is at best a patchwork fix. Concerned with what can be done now using the technologies and methods at our disposal, the authors set in place the idea that security can be designed in to the complex networks that exist now and for those in the near future. Web 2.0 is the next great promise of ICT - we still have the chance to design in a more secure path. Time is of the essence - prevent-detect-respond!

    Abstract: Within every picture is a hidden language that conveys a message, whether it is intended or not. This language is based on the ways people perceive and process visual information. By understanding visual language as the interface between a graphic and a viewer, designers and illustrators can learn to inform with accuracy and power. In a time of unprecedented competition for audience attention and with an increasing demand for complex graphics, Visual Language for Designers explains how to achieve quick and effective communications. It presents ways to design for the strengths of our innate mental capacities and to compensate for our cognitive limitations.

    Abstract: The Manual of Engineering Drawing has long been the recognised as a guide for practicing and student engineers to producing engineering drawings and annotated 3D models that comply with the latest British and ISO Standards of Technical Product Specifications and Documentation. This new edition has been updated to include the requirements of BS8888 2008 and the relevant ISO Standards, and is ideal for International readership; it includes a guide to the fundamental differences between the ISO and ASME Standards relating to Technical Product Specification and Documentation. Equally applicable to CAD and manual drawing it includes the latest development in 3D annotation and the specification of surface texture. The Duality Principle is introduced as this important concept is still very relevant in the new world of 3D Technical Product Specification. Written by members of BSI and ISO committees and a former college lecturer, the Manual of Engineering Drawing combines up to the minute technical information with clear, readable explanations and numerous diagrams and traditional geometrical construction techniques rarely taught in schools and colleges.

    Abstract: Written by leading market risk academic, Professor Carol Alexander, Value-at-Risk Models forms part four of the Market Risk Analysis four volume set. Building on the three previous volumes this book provides by far the most comprehensive, rigorous and detailed treatment of market VaR models. It rests on the basic knowledge of financial mathematics and statistics gained from Volume I, of factor models, principal component analysis, statistical models of volatility and correlation and copulas from Volume II and, from Volume III, knowledge of pricing and hedging financial instruments and of mapping portfolios of similar instruments to risk factors. A unifying characteristic of the series is the pedagogical approach to practical examples that are relevant to market risk analysis in practice. All together, the Market Risk Analysis four volume set illustrates virtually every concept or formula with a practical, numerical example or a longer, empirical case study. Across all four volumes there are approximately 300 numerical and empirical examples, 400 graphs and figures and 30 case studies many of which are contained in interactive Excel spreadsheets available from the the accompanying CD-ROM . Empirical examples and case studies specific to this volume include: Parametric linear value at risk (VaR)models: normal, Student t and normal mixture and their expected tail loss (ETL); New formulae for VaR based on autocorrelated returns; Historical simulation VaR models: how to scale historical VaR and volatility adjusted historical VaR; Monte Carlo simulation VaR models based on multivariate normal and Student t distributions, and based on copulas; Examples and case studies of numerous applications to interest rate sensitive, equity, commodity and international portfolios; Decomposition of systematic VaR of large portfolios into standard alone and marginal VaR components; Backtesting and the assessment of risk model risk; Hypothetical factor push and historical stress tests, and stress testing based on VaR and ETL. "The ebook version does not provide access to the companion files".

    Abstract: For this new edition of the best-selling Learn to Program , Chris Pine has taken a good thing and made it even better. First, he used the feedback from hundreds of reader e-mails to update the content and make it even clearer. Second, he updated the examples in the book to use the latest stable version of Ruby, and also to use code that looks more like real-world Ruby code, so that people who have just learned to program will be more familiar with common Ruby techniques. Not only does the Second Edition now include answers to all of the exercises, it includes them twice . First you'll find the "how you could do it" answers, using the techniques you've learned up to that point in the book. Next you'll see "how Chris Pine would do it": answers using more advanced Ruby techniques, to whet your appetite as well as providing sort of a "Rosetta Stone" for more elegant solutions.

    Abstract: For every new project or high-profile assignment, there is a mile-long line of wannabes waiting to grab the brass ring. But those consistently at the forefront have something truly extraordinary in common. You know them at first sight: teammates or colleagues, direct reports or bosses who radiate enthusiasm, positive energy, and inspiration. Even when confronted with circumstances that work against them they, Glow with an attitude that inspires others, fosters a great working experience for themselves and everyone around them, and creates empowering relationships. And Lynda Gratton can make sure you’re one of them. In her book Hot Spots, Gratton explored how pockets of energy and innovation are created in organizations. Now she zeroes in on how you can become a source of energy and innovation yourself. Drawing on years of original research, Gratton identifies three principles that people who Glow live by: they cultivate a cooperative mind-set, they are adept at reaching across traditional boundaries—what Lynda calls “jumping across worlds”—to gain great new ideas and powerful insights, and they are able to ignite inspiration and energy in others. For each principle, Gratton outlines three actions anyone can take to put it into practice, illustrated with dozens of examples and personal stories. Easy-to-use tools enable you to evaluate where you are now and measure your progress. Success isn’t about just working harder—there’s always someone out there who will put in longer hours. But if you can learn to Glow, you will add tremendous value to your organization in a way that will make your work more satisfying and fulfilling.

    Abstract: In their bestselling work The Extraordinary Leader , performance thought leaders John Zenger and Joseph Folkman revealed the 16 key competencies that separate the top 10 percent of leaders from the rest. Since that book’s publication, they and coauthor Scott Edinger discovered, through an extensive study conducted over four years, that leaders who possessed the ability to inspire and motivate outperformed all others. The authors found that the impact of inspiring and motivating others is consistent across different kinds of organizations and within different cultures. The Inspiring Leader reveals the authors’ newest proprietary research on how top leaders inspire teams to greatness. It discusses the behaviors exhibited by the most successful leaders and includes advice on how to implement them. Drawing from statistically significant data and objective empirical evidence, the book shows how to: Establish a clear vision and direction Use the power of emotions Create stretch goals for your team Foster innovation and risk taking Encourage teamwork and collaboration Champion change, and much more Zenger, Folkman, and Edinger lay out the strategies and concepts used by the world’s greatest leaders to motivate their teams. With The Inspiring Leader as your guide, you will learn how to put those strategies to work in your own business.

    Abstract: Why Programs Fail: A Guide to Systematic Debugging is proof that debugging has graduated from a black art to a systematic discipline. It demystifies one of the toughest aspects of software programming, showing clearly how to discover what caused software failures, and fix them with minimal muss and fuss. The fully updated second edition includes 100+ pages of new material, including new chapters on Verifying Code, Predicting Erors, and Preventing Errors. Cutting-edge tools such as FindBUGS and AGITAR are explained, techniques from integrated environments like Jazz.net are highlighted, and all-new demos with ESC/Java and Spec#, Eclipse and Mozilla are included. This complete and pragmatic overview of debugging is authored by Andreas Zeller, the talented researcher who developed the GNU Data Display Debugger(DDD), a tool that over 250,000 professionals use to visualize the data structures of programs while they are running. Unlike other books on debugging, Zeller's text is product agnostic, appropriate for all programming languages and skill levels. The book explains best practices ranging from systematically tracking error reports, to observing symptoms, reproducing errors, and correcting defects. It covers a wide range of tools and techniques from hands-on observation to fully automated diagnoses, and also explores the author's innovative techniques for isolating minimal input to reproduce an error and for tracking cause and effect through a program. It even includes instructions on how to create automated debugging tools. The text includes exercises and extensive references for further study, and a companion website with source code for all examples and additional debugging resources is available. The new edition of this award-winning productivity-booster is for any developer who has ever been frustrated by elusive bugs Brand new chapters demonstrate cutting-edge debugging techniques and tools, enabling readers to put the latest time-saving developments to work for them Learn by doing. New exercises and detailed examples focus on emerging tools, languages and environments, including AGITAR, FindBUGS, Python and Eclipse

    Abstract: The need for effective public transport is greater than ever in the 21st century. With countries like China and India moving towards mass-automobility, we face the prospects of an environmental and urban health disaster unless alternatives are found. It is time to move beyond the automobile age. But while public transport has worked well in the dense cores of some big cities, the problem is that most residents of developed countries now live in dispersed suburbs and smaller cities and towns. These places usually have little or no public transport, and most transport commentators have given up on the task of changing this: it all seems too hard. This book argues that the secret of 'European-style' public transport lies in a generalizable model of network planning that has worked in places as diverse as rural Switzerland, the Brazilian city of Curitiba and the Canadian cities of Toronto and Vancouver. It shows how this model can be adapted to suburban, exurban and even rural areas to provide a genuine alternative to the car, and outlines the governance, funding and service planning policies that underpin the success of the world's best public transport systems.
