Contents presented here are not intended to make humans feel good about themselves, nor their futures. It provides little support to business as usual in relations between humans and nature. Many depict this relation with metaphorical hope as in always seeing glasses as half-full. Others are more pessimistic and see glasses as half-empty. Neither will find comfort herein. The reality outlined herein is closer to a glass as empty, and covered with stains. While harsh, continuance of ever-expanding environmental deterioration promises to be much harsher. One consequence of deterioration is climate change as it emerged in 1977 near the end of a study presented in this book. Climate change was a proposed consequence of the way in which humans lived via ever expanding industrialization to meet growing human needs and exploding human wants. The study began with a focus on approaches to regulating industrialization pollution. Increasing legalistic regulation was then seen as the best means to control expanding deterioration of the environment, if and when the situation might become dire. Tougher laws and stricter governance were presumed to be available to protect the conditions necessary for life. The study was begun in 1975 while based at the Stockholm School of Economics, Institute of International Business. It was funded by corporate and governmental interests. It attracted leaders from the private and public sectors in several countries. Company selections were based on those who owned production facilities in several countries, facilities with similar technology making similar products resulting in similar pollution. In this way we could document pollution flows in order to evaluate differing governmental regulations. Results surprised all involved, including the researchers. The US was presumed to be very effective in environmental pollution regulations. Research results showed the opposite. It was found to rely too much on unknowledgeable lawyers and incomprehensible legalese all based on reductionist analysis in search of cause-effect logic. Significant success was instead found where the role of 2-dimensional paper laws was greatly restricted. Such was replaced by the authority of human self-governance pursuing 3-dimensional innovation with recognition of 4-dimensional limitations. Study results recommended replacing legal order with a negotiated order. This was thought to better track the systemic processes of deterioration, processes the analytic couldn’t see. This was seen to have encouraged the needed business as unusual. Results were presented to OECD as part of their discussion of different approaches to managing environmental deterioration. Results were also presented in a dissertation for a PhD in Systems Sciences, Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. Reviewers were concerned about two items. First was that environmental deterioration may be better understood via deeper analysis, not broader synthesis. Second was that climate change evolving from further environmental deterioration was speculative. It needed to be dropped. In addition, the Wharton dean of the time refused to approve the work. He did not see a relation between environmental deterioration and business, and he believed students needed to concentrate on business as usual before wondering off into the unusual. Since that time relations between man and nature have not improved, nor have relations between men and between men and themselves. We now face the ultimate of Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 and Gregory Bateson’s Double Bind. Business as usual will end in no business. The essence of the 1979 work was recently tested via posting a question on the Member Community Blog Site of the 120,000 member American Association for the Advancement of Science. The question was: Humans are changing the context for life on our planet to the negative. Does anyone see a source for hope? More than 800 responses were posted by scientists. Few saw evidences for hope in the current human project as climate changed. David Hawk has been a professor in many universities in many countries.

In this book the author makes a case for legalized physician-assisted dying. Using the latest data from Oregon and the Netherlands, he puts a new slant on perennial debate topics such as "slippery slopes," "the integrity of medicine," and "sanctity of life." This book provides an in-depth look at how we die in America today. It examines the shortcomings of our end-of-life system. You will learn about terminal torture in hospital ICUs and about the alternatives: hospice and palliative care. The author scrutinizes the good, the bad, and the ugly. He provides a critique of the practice of palliative sedation. The book makes a strong case that assisted dying complements hospice. By providing both, Oregon now has the best palliative-care system in America. This book, above all, may help you or someone you care about navigate this strange landscape we call "end of life." It can be an informed guide to "a good death" in the age of hospice and high-tech medical intervention.

This book presents a new law of human behavior founded by the author some twenty-five years ago but not proclaimed as a law until now. It has taken the past twenty-five years to accumulate evidence sufficient to "move" what was originally a tentative postulation to the status of an indisputable law- a relationship that applies across all people in all situations. This Law of Escalating Marginal Sacrifice (LEMS) states that when a person exerts more and more effort pursuing a job, task, or goal, the negative outcomes, or costs experienced by the person, as a result of the higher effort exerted, rise at an increasing rate--the rate of increase accelerating rapidly as one's effort capacity is approached. Such a relationship, between the effort exerted and the perceived costs associated with that effort, has profound implications for managing people in the workforce. Further, this relationship provides a vital framework for integrating the theory of the firm with the theory of individual behavior-a synthesis too long neglected.

In 1792, the same year as the appearance of Mary Wollstonecraft's "A Vindication of the Rights of Woman," an anonymous treatise was published in German using Enlightenment principles to argue for equal rights for women in the domestic, political and religious spheres. The author was later revealed to be Theodor Gottlieb von Hippel, a friend of Kant and governing mayor of Koenigsberg, who, unlike Wollstonecraft, appealed mainly to men to loosen the bonds of women. The work also contained perhaps the first anthropological study examining the origin of the dominance of men. Translated into English as "On Improving the Status of Women," the work appears here for the first time in complete form in English, along with Hippel's collected writings on the status of women, from his very early Freemason address to his last novel. Included also are lengthy notes for a second addition of "On Improving the Status of Women," as well as the most complete biography of the author in English. Hippel is here depicted as a writer who, perhaps more than any other man in history, championed the cause of women's rights throughout his life, and as one of the earliest and most profound thinkers on the subject.

Language is the species-specific human version of the animal system of communication. In contrast to non-human animals, language enables humans to invent a plurality of possible worlds; reflect upon signs; be responsible for our actions; gain conscious awareness of our inevitable mutual involvement in the network of life on this planet; and be responsibly involved in the destiny of the planet. The author looks at semiotics, the study of signs, symbols, and communication as developing sequentially rather than successively, more synchronically than diachronically. She discusses the contemporary phenomenon that people in today's society have witnessed and participated in, as part of the development of semiotics. Although there is a long history preceding semiotics, in a sense the field is, as a phenomenon, more "of our time" than of any time past. Its leading figures, whom Petrilli examines, belong to the twentieth and twenty-first century. Semiotics is associated with a capacity for listening. This capacity is also the condition for reconnecting to and recovering the ancient vocation of semiotics as that branch of medical science relating to the interpretation of signs or symptoms. The pragmatic aspect of global semiotics studies the impact of language or signs on those who use them, and looks for consequences in actual practice. In this respect, Petrilli theories that the task for semiotics in the era of globaliation is nothing less than to take responsibility for life in its totality. Susan Petrilli is the Seventh Thomas A. Sebeok Fellow of the Semiotic Society of America and professor in the Department of Signs, Language and Communication at the University of Bari, Italy. In addition, she is the author of numerous books, including Semiotics Unbounded (with Augusto Ponio) and Translation Translation. John Deely is professor of philosophy at the Center for Thomistic Studies, University of St. Thomas and managing editor of The American Journal of Semiotics. He is the author of numerous books including The Impact on Philosophy of Semiotics and What Distinguishes Human Understanding.
It would be better if the hotel times the promotion 14-45 days before the check-in date – not too early so it would be noticed by potential customers and not too late in order to allow them to use the promotion.

Time windows play a major role in balancing BSSs since stations must not be visited to early or too late due to the request pattern. If one delivers bikes to a station too early, the station may congest and return requests fail.

This book reports on an operational management approach to improving bike-sharing systems by compensating for fluctuating demand patterns. The aim is to redistribute bikes within the system, allowing it to be “actively” balanced. The book describes a mathematical model, as well as data-driven and simulation-based approaches. Further, it shows how these elements can be combined in a decision-making support system for service providers. In closing, the book uses real-world data to evaluate the method developed and demonstrates that it can successfully anticipate changes in demand, thus supporting efficient scheduling of transport vehicles to manually relocate bikes between stations.
