Summary:

This book takes a look at fully automated, autonomous vehicles and discusses many open questions: How can autonomous vehicles be integrated into the current transportation system with diverse users and human drivers? Where do automated vehicles fall under current legal frameworks? What risks are associated with automation and how will society respond to these risks? How will the marketplace react to automated vehicles and what changes may be necessary for companies? Experts from Germany and the United States define key societal, engineering, and mobility issues related to the automation of vehicles. They discuss the decisions programmers of automated vehicles must make to enable vehicles to perceive their environment, interact with other road users, and choose actions that may have ethical consequences. The authors further identify expectations and concerns that will form the basis for individual and societal acceptance of autonomous driving. While the safety benefits of such vehicles are tremendous, the authors demonstrate that these benefits will only be achieved if vehicles have an appropriate safety concept at the heart of their design. Realizing the potential of automated vehicles to reorganize traffic and transform mobility of people and goods requires similar care in the design of vehicles and networks. By covering all of these topics, the book aims to provide a current, comprehensive, and scientifically sound treatment of the emerging field of “autonomous driving".

Summary:

Scores of talented and dedicated people serve the forensic science community, performing vitally important work. However, they are often constrained by lack of adequate resources, sound policies, and national support. It is clear that change and advancements, both systematic and scientific, are needed in a number of forensic science disciplines to ensure the reliability of work, establish enforceable standards, and promote best practices with consistent application. Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States: A Path Forward provides a detailed plan for addressing these needs and suggests the creation of a new government entity, the National Institute of Forensic Science, to establish and enforce standards within the forensic science community. The benefits of improving and regulating the forensic science disciplines are clear: assisting law enforcement officials, enhancing homeland security, and reducing the risk of wrongful conviction and exoneration. Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States gives a full account of what is needed to advance the forensic science disciplines, including upgrading of systems and organizational structures, better training, widespread adoption of uniform and enforceable best practices, and mandatory certification and accreditation programs. While this book provides an essential call-to-action for congress and policy makers, it also serves as a vital tool for law enforcement agencies, criminal prosecutors and attorneys, and forensic science educators.

Summary:

Alex Davies tells the dramatic, colorful story of the quest to develop driverless cars—and the fierce competition between Google, Uber, and other companies in a race to revolutionize our lives. The self-driving car has been one of the most vaunted technological breakthroughs of recent years. But early promises that these autonomous vehicles would soon be on the roads have proven premature. Alex Davies follows the twists and turns of this story from its origins to today. The story starts with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which was charged with developing a land-based equivalent to the drone, a vehicle that could operate in war zones without risking human lives. DARPA issued a series of three “Grand Challenges” that attracted visionaries, many of them students and amateurs, who took the technology from Jetsons-style fantasy to near-reality. The young stars of the Challenges soon connected with Silicon Valley giants Google and Uber, intent on delivering a new way of driving to the civilian world. Soon the automakers joined the quest, some on their own, others in partnership with the tech titans. But as road testing progressed, it became clear that the challenges of driving a car without human assistance were more formidable than anticipated. Davies profiles the industry’s key players from the early enthusiasm of the DARPA days to their growing awareness that while this spin on artificial intelligence isn’t yet ready for rush-hour traffic, driverless cars are poised to remake how the world moves. Driven explores this exciting quest to transform transportation and change our lives.

Summary:

The robot population is rising on Earth and other planets. (Mars is inhabited entirely by robots.) As robots slip into more domains of human life--from the operating room to the bedroom--they take on our morally important tasks and decisions, as well as create new risks from psychological to physical. This makes it all the more urgent to study their ethical, legal, and policy impacts. To help the robotics industry and broader society, we need to not only press ahead on a wide range of issues, but also identify new ones emerging as quickly as the field is evolving. For instance, where military robots had received much attention in the past (and are still controversial today), this volume looks toward autonomous cars here as an important case study that cuts across diverse issues, from liability to psychology to trust and more. And because robotics feeds into and is fed by AI, the Internet of Things, and other cognate fields, robot ethics must also reach into those domains, too. Expanding these discussions also means listening to new voices; robot ethics is no longer the concern of a handful of scholars. Experts from different academic disciplines and geographical areas are now playing vital roles in shaping ethical, legal, and policy discussions worldwide. So, for a more complete study, the editors of this volume look beyond the usual suspects for the latest thinking. Many of the views as represented in this cutting-edge volume are provocative--but also what we need to push forward in unfamiliar territory.

Summary:

The New York Times bestseller that gives readers a paradigm-shattering new way to think about motivation from the author of When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing Most people believe that the best way to motivate is with rewards like money—the carrot-and-stick approach. That's a mistake, says Daniel H. Pink (author of To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Motivating Others). In this provocative and persuasive new book, he asserts that the secret to high performance and satisfaction-at work, at school, and at home—is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world. Drawing on four decades of scientific research on human motivation, Pink exposes the mismatch between what science knows and what business does—and how that affects every aspect of life. He examines the three elements of true motivation—autonomy, mastery, and purpose-and offers smart and surprising techniques for putting these into action in a unique book that will change how we think and transform how we live.

Summary:

From Erin Brockovich to Enron, whistleblowers who “challenge abuses of power that betray the public trust” have proven to be an unfortunate necessity in modern business culture. Their efforts to report crimes, fraud, and dangers to public health and safety have saved millions of lives and billions of dollars of shareholder value – and had we heeded the warnings of whistleblowers, perhaps disasters such as the Bernie Madoff scandal and the Lehman Brothers meltdown could have been averted. Recent federal legislation in finance and health reform have cemented legal protections and mechanisms for whistleblowing. This book provides a thorough guide and history to the whistleblower's legal rights. The ultimate survival guide, it provides advice on getting help and finding allies, warns that retaliation is often the reward for "committing the truth" and shows how to weather the storm. With extensive legal texts, sample letters, resources, and information on upcoming whistleblower reforms, this is the ultimate source on the subject.

Summary:

There is a popular belief that the pharmacological properties of heroin draw users inexorably towards regular dependent use and personal degeneration. However, there is evidence that some people manage long-term use without falling into chaotic, or even dependent, using patterns. These users tend to be excluded from studies of drug use, which typically draw participants from treatment services or from the criminal justice system, and little is known either about the risks that they face or the methods they use to manage their heroin use. This report is based on a study of users who manage their long-term heroin use. It documents the users' perception of their heroin use as non-problematic and outlines how they controlled the drug - such as not-injecting, limiting the days on which they used heroin and not buying the drug if they did not have the money - and their reasons for controlling its use. The report also discusses the circumstances surrounding the users' initiation into drug use, particularly heroin, and examines the influence of cultural, social and economic factors on their habit. Occasional and controlled heroin use suggests that sustained heroin use does not necessarily lead to dependency and, where it does, it does not always cause major problems. The authors argue that much public and policy understanding of heroin use in grounded in inaccurate and narrow stereotypes and suggest that the techniques used by non-problematic heroin users could be used to inform conventional treatment services for those with drug problems that are out of control.

Moderne Diplomatie wirkt heute in viele Bereiche des modernen Lebens hinein. Sie ist zugleich selbst neuen Einflüssen ausgesetzt. Faktoren, die unsere Gesellschaften verändern, verändern auch unser Regierungshandeln, auch in der Außenpolitik, seien es Digitalisierung, emotionalisierte Sensibilitäten unserer Öffentlichkeiten oder nicht-staatliche internationale Akteure. Derartige Entwicklungen müssen von der Diplomatie aufgenommen werden, damit sie weiter als Instrument einer Regierung funktionieren kann. Regierungen sollten Wege finden, zwischen den neuen Bedürfnissen der Gesellschaft und den Notwendigkeiten legitimen Regierungshandelns zu vermitteln. Das Ziel sollte sein, als souveräner Staat handeln zu können und zugleich das Potential der tiefgreifenden gesellschaftlichen Veränderungen zu nutzen.

Summary:

What is the desire of your heart? To become physically in better shape? To find inner peace in a world that seems like it is always in crisis? To lose weight and fit into your clothes? To eat healthier, bringing you more energy for life? To become more spiritually centered with yourself and God? Over the last thirty years, my desire was to stop smoking, run a marathon, write a novel, lose 20 pounds and build a healthy, loving marriage. I would never have believed I could achieve such "unattainable" goals. But, I did! I then asked myself the question, "How was I able to reach these goals even though they had seemed so unattainable?" I discovered there were six principles that I had implemented in each situation. I have created a 40-day journal using these six themes. I believe implementing these principles will help as you strive to improve your life. Each day, this book will offer a devotional meditation, with a space for you to write down your reflections. There will also be places where you can record what you ate and what physical activity you accomplished. At the end of each week, you can review how you did and your progress in accomplishing your goals.

Summary:

This book is written in the style of the great Napoleon Hill. Think about this. With all of the success books out there, why don't we have more successful people? Too many success books simply rehash conventional wisdom. The truly great success books, such as Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich", instead enable life-challenging success breakthroughs because they identify and describe in powerful detail the thinking patterns and principles of the world's most successful individuals. The only way to do this is to study the world's most successful individuals, as Napoleon Hill has done. And as I have done as well. For over two decades, I have devoted myself to studying and interviewing the most successful individuals across varying fields so that I could see and learn for myself the principles which sets them apart in terms of their success. And that is what I share with you here. Get ready to throw out many of the things that you thought you knew about success. Let's start at the beginning with a simple truth. Success is hard. Very Hard. Very very very hard. We all know that, once we have had a little bit of experience and are honest with ourselves. We all want to be more successful, but let's face it, sometimes we just don't know how. It's because, as they say, "We don't know what we don't know." So we make the same mistakes over and over again(often without fully realizing it until later). And then we blame ourselves(or others) in regard to why things didn't turn out as we had hoped, or planned. It's this simple. If you want to increase your level of success, read this book. We all go through the same struggles. This book-simply but powerfully - is your instruction manual on how to overcome them. Read this book and in 60 days you won't even recognize the person you used to be. And neither will your family and friends. This is the type of change that allows you to get the things you really want in life. The things previously outside your reach. The things you saw others gain and achieve, but never seemed to be able to get for yourself. That can change today. We all know that a few better ideas can accelerate one's success substantially. Successful people take their better ideas and know how to leverage them further - and execute them better than other people do. Once you understand the processes that successful people utilize to do this, you can very quickly ramp up your own success as well. Everybody struggles. Successful people struggle just like unsuccessful people but they learn and use the success principles to overcome the difficulties in their lives to reach their goals. Success breeds confidence, making it easier overtime. If you don't want to keep making the same mistakes over and over again, you need to understand and understand well what these success principles are. That is what this book provides to you.

Summary:

Edible insects have always been a part of human diets, but in some societies there remains a degree of disdain and disgust for their consumption. Insects offer a significant opportunity to merge traditional knowledge and modern science to improve human food security worldwide. This publication describes the contribution of insects to food security and examines future prospects for raising insects at a commercial scale to improve food and feed production, diversify diets, and support livelihoods in both developing and developed countries. Edible insects are a promising alternative to the conventional production of meat, either for direct human consumption or for indirect use as feedstock. This publication will boost awareness of the many valuable roles that insects play in sustaining nature and human life, and it will stimulate debate on the expansion of the use of insects as food and feed.

The book is highly recommended for every student and scholar in the field of environmental governance. Martin Jänicke, Freie Universität Berlin, Germany Partnerships have emerged as a critical best practice in the pursuit of sustainability. Glasbergen, Biermann and Mol s book explores the partnership issue from a variety of empirical and theoretical perspectives highlighting how to understand them and what (not) to do. Highly recommended. Daniel C. Esty, Yale University, US This significant study discusses the emergence of partnerships for sustainable development as an innovative, and potentially influential, new type of governance. With contributions from leading experts in the field, the partnership paradigm is discussed and the contributors explore the process, extent and circumstances under which partnerships can improve the legitimacy and effectiveness of governance for sustainable development. Scientific research on partnerships within the context of governance theory is fairly new, and there is a clear need to systemize a knowledge base to further define the international research agenda. In addition, there is an urgent demand from governments and international organizations, as well as from non-governmental actors, for strategic insights to build upon their activities in this field. This book is designed to address the questions, debates and agendas related to this new mode of governance. This multi-disciplinary book brings together unique perspectives from organizational theory, policy science, sociology and political science. As such, it will be warmly welcomed by academics of environmental policy and politics as well as scholars and researchers interested in governance for sustainable development. It will also appeal to public policy scholars.

In this stimulating how-to book, a scientist Dr. Dan Swan (D.Engr.) provides an answer to one of life's most important questions, "How in the world does one find miracles?" When a miracle occurred in his life in 1994 at a time when he desperately needed it. This miracle caused a series of revelations that ultimately led him down a spiritual path, completely changing his busy life, his scientific mindset and the way he viewed this chaotic world. Taking the reader on a fascinating tour of his real-life experience, Dr. Swan explains how he began his spiritual journey by learning hands-on energy healing in order to help save his father who had suffered a major stroke. Through his real-life experience as an energy healer, using the healing power from God, he found that miracles happened to patients who were ordinary people like you and him. He witnessed that miracles do happen many times to people who are in desperate need. From his experience, he shows in this book that anyone can become an energy healer and be able to heal loved ones and family members. People of all religious faiths as well as non-believers can transform their physical bodies to Light bodies using the healing power from God. In fact, all major religions including Christianity, Hinduism, and Buddhism, encourage people to make the higher transformation to a union with God or Universal Consciousness. And, he shows the reader step-by-step of how to do it. Using Dr. Swan's method, the spiritual journey can be completed in a short period of time. He successfully merges new scientific findings with ancient wisdom, resulting in an easy-to- understand guide for someone at any spiritual level. Readers will learn from leading quantum physicists and medical doctors, as well as spiritual teachers from around the world. Dr. Swan's instructions set the stage for a spiritual voyage of self-discovery.

Summary:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER If you want to build a better future, you must believe in secrets. The great secret of our time is that there are still uncharted frontiers to explore and new inventions to create. In Zero to One, legendary entrepreneur and investor Peter Thiel shows how we can find singular ways to create those new things. Thiel begins with the contrarian premise that we live in an age of technological stagnation, even if we’re too distracted by shiny mobile devices to notice. Information technology has improved rapidly, but there is no reason why progress should be limited to computers or Silicon Valley. Progress can be achieved in any industry or area of business. It comes from the most important skill that every leader must master: learning to think for yourself. Doing what someone else already knows how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. But when you do something new, you go from 0 to 1. The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. Tomorrow’s champions will not win by competing ruthlessly in today’s marketplace. They will escape competition altogether, because their businesses will be unique. Zero to One presents at once an optimistic view of the future of progress in America and a new way of thinking about innovation: it starts by learning to ask the questions that lead you to find value in unexpected places.
