This contributed volume arose from the idea of assembling scientists from space research and ground development, time transfer techniques and radio science missions, the time-frequency community, and both the geodesy-geophysics and solar system exploration communities. Such a fusion of diverse interests in these fields related to time measurement has rarely, if ever, been achieved. The topics covered in these papers include clocks, time transfer, technology, and the applications of high-precision clocks in Earth Sciences, Fundamental Physics, Astrophysics, and Solar System exploration. This book will be of major interest to all those involved in the implementation and utilization of space-based high precision timing for a wide range of applications. Originally published in Space Science Reviews in the Topical Collection "High Performance Clocks with Special Emphasis on Geodesy and Geophysics and Applications to Other Bodies of the Solar System"

Thomas Sanchez's international bestseller, Mile Zero, set in Key West, was hailed by the Washington Post as a ""holy terror of a book of immense power and passion,"" lauded by Vanity Fair as ""mythmaking and magisterial,"" and acclaimed by the New York Times as ""dazzling."" Sanchez returns to Key West, America's famous southernmost continental point, with a heart-racing ecological thriller. The exotic island city of the Florida Keys is being terrorized by murders committed by a mysterious voodoo assassin. With each new kill, it becomes clear that the skeleton-clad executioner has an ecological agenda. The novel propels us through a complex maze populated by defenders of America's only continental reef, rapacious developers, ruthless scammers, destroyers of marine life, and common people engaged in heroic acts to save their paradise. Everyone dreads being the killer's next victim as the clock counts down to the end of hurricane season and a final dramatic explosion of fear and rage. With canny perception and striking revelations, American Tropic illuminates a world of dark desires, hidden truths, and colliding destinies.

A careful, methodical young data analyst for a California insurance company, John Walker knows when people will marry, at what age they will most likely have children, and when they will die. All signs point to a long successful career--until Max Stillman, a gruff security consultant, appears without warning at the office. It seems a colleague with whom Walker once had an affair has disappeared after paying a very large death benefit to an impostor. Stillman wants to find and convict her; Walker is convinced the woman is innocent. Now Walker teams up with Stillman on an urgent north-by-northeast race--relentlessly leading to a pay-off that just might shock the life out of him.

The experiences of joining and leaving organizations permeate most people's lives in the 21st century. This book provides a framework for increasing our understanding of those experiences using a mixture of specific examples, scholarly findings, and theoretical concepts and models. Each chapter begins with a realistic scenario that illustrates its concepts and theories. Then the chapters explore the entire socialization process from anticipatory socialization, in which individuals choose occupations and organizations to join, to voluntarily or involuntarily exit from those same organizations. In between, chapters examine the process of entering organizations, learning their culture, developing personal relationships, and experiencing individual transitions, like promotions, and organizational transitions, like mergers and acquisitions, as part of the ongoing socialization process. It expands the study of socialization by considering socialization of organizational volunteers as well as paid employees, and by exploring the ways that work-family issues and new technologies influence the socialization process. Throughout, particular attention is paid to the role and importance of communication in these experiences. The book's organization allows scholars, students, and organizational participants in every walk of life to increase their understanding of their organizational experiences. It will be particularly useful for those studying organizational communication, business and management.

Married and living in England under the name Michael Schaeffer, the assassin known as the Butcher's Boy is the target of a Mafia hit team sent to exact revenge for his deadly campaign against the Balacontano family years earlier. Schaeffer kills all three attackers, but he knows more will come and needs to find whoever sent them to end it once and for all.
Soon Elizabeth Waring, now high up in the Organized Crime Division of the Justice Department, receives a surprise late-night visit from the Butcher's Boy. Knowing she keeps track of the Mafia, he asks her who the three men work for. Not knowing they have been murdered, she gives him a name: Frank Tosca, an aspirant to the Balacontano throne. In exchange, he tells her about a murder Tosca committed over twenty years ago. So begins a new assault on organized crime, and the uneasy alliance between the Butcher's Boy and Waring, who trade current information for old secrets.
As the Butcher's Boy works his way ever closer to his quarry in an effort to protect his new way of life, Waring finds herself in a race against time, either to convince him to become a protected informant or to take him out of commission for good.

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich BWL - Marketing, Unternehmenskommunikation, CRM, Marktforschung, Social Media, Note: 2,23, Verwaltungs- und Wirtschafts-Akademie Gottingen, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Neben zahlreichen Optimierungsansatzen fur das Fuhren von Verkaufsgesprachen hat sich in den letzten Jahren auch die Neurolinguistische Programmierung einen festen Platz in den Optimierungsansatzen gesichert. Dieser vielfach als Pseudowissenschaft verschriene Ansatz, welcher aus der Psychotherapie abgeleitet ist, bietet Modelle und Techniken, die es dem Verkaufer ermoglichen sollen, den Kontakt zum Kunden zu optimieren und seinen Verkaufserfolg nachhaltig zu optimieren. Was aber ist wirklich dran an NLP? Bietet es wirklich einen sinnvollen Ansatz und praktikable Methoden? Handelt es sich um ein ernst zu nehmendes Modell oder ist doch reine Schalatanerie?... NLP bietet hier dem Verkaufer Techniken, die es ihm erleichtern sollen, seinen Job erfolgreich zu machen und seine eigenen Ziele leichter zu erreichen. Diese Techniken sind erlernbar und konnen entweder sofort oder zumindest relativ schnell angewendet werden. Speziell kann ein Verkaufer durch NLP kurzfristig lernen die optimale psychische Verbindung zum Kunden aufzubauen und entsprechende Massnahmen zu ergreifen, wenn die Chemie zwischen beiden nicht stimmt. Dabei geht es auch darum, den Gefuhls- und Denktypus des Kunden zu erkennen und mit ihm in der fur ihn angenehmen Sprache zu kommunizieren. Auch werden Techniken vermittelt, die es dem Verkaufer ermoglichen, die echten Bedurfnisse des Kunden zu ermitteln, auch wenn dieser sich selber nicht im Klaren daruber ist. Hier werden kleinste Abweichung in Aussagen und Korpersprache analysiert und hinterfragt. ... Unser individuelles, sprachliches Bild der Welt entsteht durch den Ablauf von drei universellen Gestaltungsprozessen, Generalisierung, Tilgung und Verzerrung.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Bauhaus-Universitat Weimar (Fakultat Medien), Veranstaltung: Seminar, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In dieser Arbeit wird die 152. Szene, Kapitel Funf: Revenge Of The Giant Face" unter den Aspekten der Narration und Fokalisierung untersucht. Die Szene schliesst die Strange der Auftrage der Figuren Donnie, Omar, Shosanna, Goebbels und Hitler. Shosanna Dreyfuss' Kino wird zur Premiere des Films Stolz Der Nation" zum Schauplatz der Rache und zum Ort des Untergangs der Antagonisten Goebbels und Hitler. Durch das Verriegeln des Kinosaals in vorherigen Szenen, entsteht aus narrativer Logik und aus theoretischer Sicht ein abgeschlossener Raum. Die Explosion dieses Schauplatzes wirkt symbolisch als Verbrennen des Propaganda-Kinos fur sich. In Anbetracht des historischen judischen Widerstandes und des inszenierten judischen Widerstand soll das Credo Wie Schafe zur Schlachtbank"1 als fiktive Offerte an den Zuschauer verstanden werden. Die Konsequenz fur diese Filmanalyse soll in der Frage Wie hat es der Regisseur getan?" als Leitfrage fungieren. Mit es" sei hier die Abstraktion des Tyrannenmordes als politischer Mord an Adolf Hitler bezeichnet. Die Inszenierung durch die Regie wird als Prozess durch den Akteur Regisseur verstanden. Da die Regie die Prozesse der Filmproduktion vereint, wirkt hiernach nur dieser Akteur als Erzahler und ist nach Barthes tot2. Die Unterschiede zwischen den Dialogen im Drehbuch3 und denen im Film zeichnen die Szene auch im intermedialen Kontext als Schlusselszene aus. Unter dem Apekt der Intermedialitat veroffentlichte der Hauptdarsteller Eli Roth den Stolz Der Nation" als eigenstandigen Kurzfilm4. Dieser Punkt soll weiter die Bedeutung der Szene und des Films im Film betonen. ...] 1Vgl. Link: http: //books.google.de/books?id=DHaziny_uJAC&pg=PA76#v=onepage&q&f=true (07.04.2013, 18:27 Uhr) 2Vgl.

In the tradition of "The Lost City of Z" and "Skeleton in the Zahara," "Astoria" is the thrilling, true-adventure tale of the 1810 Astor Expedition, an epic, now forgotten, three-year journey to forge an American empire on the Pacific Coast. Peter Stark offers a harrowing saga in which a band of explorers battled nature, starvation, and madness to establish the first American settlement in the Pacific Northwest and opened up what would become the Oregon Trail, permanently altering the nation s landscape and its global standing.

Six years after Lewis and Clark began their journey to the Pacific Northwest, two of the Eastern establishment s leading figures, John Jacob Astor and Thomas Jefferson, turned their sights to founding a colony akin to Jamestown on the West Coast and transforming the nation into a Pacific trading power. Author and correspondent for "Outside" magazine Peter Stark recreates this pivotal moment in American history for the first time for modern readers, drawing on original source material to tell the amazing true story of the Astor Expedition.

Unfolding over the course of three years, from 1810 to 1813, "Astoria" is a tale of high adventure and incredible hardship in the wilderness and at sea. Of the more than one hundred-forty members of the two advance parties that reached the West Coast one crossing the Rockies, the other rounding Cape Horn nearly half perished by violence. Others went mad. Within one year, the expedition successfully established Fort Astoria, a trading post on the Columbia River. Though the colony would be short-lived, it opened provincial American eyes to the potential of the Western coast and its founders helped blaze the Oregon Trail.

Six years ago, Jack Till helped Wendy Harper disappear. But now her ex-boyfriend and former business partner, Eric Fuller, is being framed for her presumed murder in an effort to smoke her out, and Till must find her before tango-dancing assassins Paul and Sylvie Turner do.
The Turners are merely hired to do a job, though, and prefer to remain anonymous. When they find that a middleman has let the true employer know their identities, finishing the job is no longer enough. Their fee just went up. And now they must double-cross the man who wants Wendy dead before he can double-cross them--if their jealousy and cold-blooded calculations don't result in a fatal lovers' quarrel first.
With masterful plotting and unnerving psychological insight, Thomas Perry delivers another mesmerizing thrill ride.
