Sometimes, retribution is a slippery slope towards self-destruction. When the General Invites Molly and her crew to the ArchAngel, it's not long before news also arrives of a serious threat to the Federation. It falls to Molly and her team to deal with the threat, which winds up in an intense hostage situation. Meanwhile, back on Sark, Molly’s team helps Chaakwa along with her unconventional help to bring her father's killers to justice. Can Molly handle everything thrown at her? --- PLEASE NOTE --- Inside this book is cursing, amusing cursing, but cursing nonethe. If bad language offends you, perhaps this book is not for you. Set on the foundation laid by the Kurtherian Gambit Series, Awakening tells an entirely new story in the Age of Expansion--when the Etheric Empire is fast becoming the Etheric Federation with all of the trials and tribulations that come with bringing together different peoples, systems, and ideals.
How the chip industry has responded to a series of crises over the past twenty-five years, often reinventing itself and shifting the basis for global competitive advantage.
For decades the semiconductor industry has been a driver of global economic growth and social change. Semiconductors, particularly the microchips essential to most electronic devices, have transformed computing, communications, entertainment, and industry. In Chips and Change, Clair Brown and Greg Linden trace the industry over more than twenty years through eight technical and competitive crises that forced it to adapt in order to continue its exponential rate of improved chip performance. The industry's changes have in turn shifted the basis on which firms hold or gain global competitive advantage.
These eight interrelated crises do not have tidy beginnings and ends. Most, in fact, are still ongoing, often in altered form. The U.S. semiconductor industry's fear that it would be overtaken by Japan in the 1980s, for example, foreshadows current concerns over the new global competitors China and India. The intersecting crises of rising costs for both design and manufacturing are compounded by consumer pressure for lower prices. Other crises discussed in the book include the industry's steady march toward the limits of physics, the fierce competition that keeps its profits modest even as development costs soar, and the global search for engineering talent. Other high-tech industries face crises of their own, and the semiconductor industry has much to teach about how industries are transformed in response to such powerful forces as technological change, shifting product markets, and globalization.
Chips and Change also offers insights into how chip firms have developed, defended, and, in some cases, lost global competitive advantage.
Osmanlı padişahlarından belki de en çok tartışılanıdır Sultan II. Abdülhamid. Kimileri “Kızıl Sultan” diyor, kimileri “Ulu Hakan”… Siyasi hayatı ve tercihleri sürekli tartışılıyor.
Ve bu tartışmalar, daha ziyade sancılı saltanat yıllarındaki siyasi olaylar, anlaşmalar, yürütülen “denge politikası” üzerinden yapılıyor. Peki şimdi, kişisel hayatı ve bıraktığı eserler üzerinden “insan Abdülhamid”e doğru bir yolculuğa ne dersiniz? Talha Uğurluel, Sultan II. Abdülhamid’in kişisel tarihindeki detaylar üzerinden İmparatorluğun son günlerini anlatıyor. * Sultan II. Abdülhamid hangi tarikata mensuptu? * Annesizliğini kimin şefkatli kucağında avuttu? * Çok erken vefat eden kardeşlerinin hatıralarını nasıl yaşattı? * Şehzadeliğinde, saltanat yıllarına nasıl hazırlandı? *Hamidiye Şişli Etfal Hastanesi’nin arkasındaki acılı hikâye neydi? *Kudüs’teki Yafa Kapısı’nı neden yıktırdı? *Louis Pasteur’e Mecidî Nişanı’nı neden verdi? *Bir selam-ı şahâne ile emperyal İngiliz siyasetini nasıl engelledi? *Yıldız Sarayı’ndaki marangozhanede sanatkâr elleriyle neler üretti? * Tartışılan II. Abdülhamid- Mehmet Âkif ilişkisinin iç yüzü neydi? * Ziya Paşa ve Namık Kemal, Abdülhamid’in çağrısı üzerine vatanlarına dönerken Prens Sabahaddin ve Mahmud Celaleddin Paşa anlaşmamakta neden ısrar etti? Talha Uğurluel, Sultan II. Abdülhamid Han’ın gayri resmi tarihini gün yüzüne çıkarıyor, “Bir Dehanın İzleri”ni sürüyor.
This Palgrave Pivot argues that basic income at a decent level is, in fact, affordable.
The contributors approach the topic from the perspectives of three different countries--Canada, Switzerland, and Australia--to overcome objections that a universal program to keep all citizens above the poverty line would be too expensive to implement. They assess the complex array of revenue sources that can make universal basic income feasible, from the underestimated value of public program redundancies to new and so far unaccounted publicly owned assets.
Latest work of Wang Shuo, a Chinese writer once extremely popular for pioneering the "literature of the hooligans". This new book features some of the writer's selected diaries and two short stories (Horrible Thinking, and Days After My Death). Published in Dec 2007, it became an instant bestseller in the literature field in China.
A crisis has arisen. In the first book of the series, THE FORTRESS IN ORION, Pretorius and his Dead Enders kidnapped the real General Michkag and substituted a clone who had been raised and trained in the Democracy.
But now they find that the clone likes being the most powerful man in the hundred-world Traanskei Coalititon - and having been raised on Earth, he knows how humans think and react. This becomes a many-layered problem for Pretorius and what is left of his Dead Enders.
As the only humans on a totally militarized alien world, they must first find where the best-guarded member of the enemy's military - Michkag - is hiding and how many aliens, or regiments, or divisions, are guarding him, and then they must find a way past all his lines of defense to kill or capture him.
