Book excerpt: “Anyone who enjoyed [the] thrilling tales of “Indiana Jones” will enjoy this book…” —David A. McCormick The Saudi king is dying, and a successor must be chosen from the next generation, the grandsons of the assassinated Abdul Aziz and the founder of the kingdom. One prince, His Royal Highness Rashid Abdul Aziz is determined to rule, but royal blood is not enough. He needs to demonstrate he is worthy of the crown. If his wife can find the first Qur’an, used by the Prophet, Prince Rashid will be the next king. The prince fears, however, that the exquisite find won’t be enough. Secretly, he orders terrorists to eliminate his half-brothers and cousins. Rashid needs someone he can trust. He asks Amy Prowers to assist his wife, Princess Hassa, on the excavation and to validate the finding. Though Amy is not an archaeologist, her aunt’s private international organization, the Committee, has access to experts in the ancient city of Ubar in the Empty Quarter. Eager to help her deceased husband’s friend, Prince Rashid, Amy arrives and discovers there is more at stake than ancient cultures. The kingdom is a breeding ground for a new generation of terrorists. A secret sect called the Black Princes put Amy’s life at risk as she becomes a participant in her friend’s quest for the Saudi throne.
Download Free Adventures of a Bystander PDF by Peter Drucker Full Book and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-07-12 with total page 356 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Peter Drucker's lively and thoughtful memoirs are now available in paperback with a new introduction by the author. He writes with wit and spirit about people he has encountered in a long and varied life, including Sigmund Freud, Henry Luce, Alfred Sloan, John L. Lewis, and Marshall McLuhan. After beginning with his childhood in Vienna during and after World War I, Drucker moves on to Europe in the 1920s and early 1930s, describing the imminent doom posed by Hitler and the Nazis. He then goes on to describe London during the 1930s, America during the New Deal era, the World War II years, and beyond. According to John Brooks of The New York Times Book Review, "Peter Drucker is at a corner cafe, delightfully regaling anyone who will listen with tales of what must be one of the more varied—and for a practitioner of such a narrow skill as that of management counseling, astonishing—of contemporary professional lives." Dorothy Rabinowitz of the Washington Post writes, "The famous are here as well as the infamous.... All are the beneficiaries, for better or for worse, of Drucker's unerring eye for psychological detail, his remorseless curiosity, and his imaginative sympathy.... Drucker's book appears in a stroke to have restored the art of the memoir and of the essay." Adventures of a Bystander reflects Drucker's vitality, infinite curiosity, and interest in people, ideas, and the forces behind them. His book is a personal and informal account of the rich life of an independent man of letters, a life that spans eight decades and two continents. It will be of interest to scholars and professionals in the business world, historians, sociologists, and admirers of Peter Drucker.

Download Free Toward the Next Generation of Bystander Prevention of Sexual and Relationship Violence PDF by Victoria L. Banyard Full Book and published by Springer. This book was released on 2015-09-03 with total page 118 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This briefs integrates and synthesizes an array of research about who helps others and under what conditions and discusses the implications of this research for a bystander intervention focused prevention agenda to reduce sexual and relationship violence in schools and communities. It combines an examination of bystander helping behavior in the specific context of sexual and relationship violence with social psychological research on bystander behavior outside that context in order to inform prevention efforts. This briefs is designed for researchers, practitioners, and students concerned about violence prevention and who are interesting in bystander intervention as a promising prevention strategy. Connections between research and practice are the foundation of this briefs. The briefs addresses the following questions: What is the promise of a bystander approach to violence prevention? Where does it fit within the spectrum of sexual and relationship violence prevention? How do we expand theoretical models of helping behavior to the unique context of interpersonal violence? How can we bring in research from other areas of health behavior change and developmental research on violence to inform a broader bystander action model? It provides a new synthesis and model of bystander interaction. It outlines a strategic plan for new research and next steps in prevention practices.

Download Free Bystander CPR PDF by Anette Nord Full Book and published by Linköping University Electronic Press. This book was released on 2017-10-31 with total page 112 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Background: It has been proved that bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) saves lives; however, which training method in CPR is most instructive and whether survival is affected by the training level of the bystander have not yet been fully described. Aim: To identify the factors that may affect 7th grade students’ acquisition of CPR skills during CPR training and their willingness to act, and to describe 30-day survival from outof- hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) after bystander CPR and the actions performed by laymen versus off-duty medically educated personnel. Methods: Studies I–III investigate a CPR training intervention given to students in 7th grade during 2013–2014. The classes were randomized to the main intervention: the mobile phone application (app) or DVD-based training. Some of the classes were randomized to one or several additional interventions: a practical test with feedback, reflection, a web course, a visit from elite athletes and automated external defibrillator (AED) training. The students’ practical skills, willingness to act and knowledge of stroke symptoms, symptoms of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and lifestyle factors were assessed directly after training and at 6 months using the Laerdal PC SkillReporting system (and entered into a modified version of the Cardiff test scoring sheet) and a questionnaire. The Cardiff test resulted in a total score of 12–48 points, and the questionnaire resulted in a total score of 0–7 points for stroke symptoms, 0–9 points for symptoms of AMI and 0– 6 points on lifestyle factors. Study IV is based on retrospective data from the national quality register, the Swedish registry of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, 2010-2014. Results: A total of 1339 students were included in the CPR training intervention. The DVD-based group was superior to the app-based group in CPR skills, with a total score of 35 (SD 4.o) vs 33 (SD 4.2) points directly after training (p<0.001) and 33 (SD 4.0) vs 31 (SD 4.2) points at six months (p<0.001). Of the additional interventions, the practical test with feedback had the greatest influence regarding practical skills: at six months the intervention group scored 32 (SD 3.9) points and the control group (CPR only) scored 30 (SD 4.0) points (p<0.001). Reflection, the web course, visits from elite athletes and AED training did not further increase the students’ acquisition of practical CPR skills. The students who completed the web course Help-Brain-Heart received a higher total score for theoretical knowledge in comparison with the control group, directly after training: stroke 3.8 (SD 1.8) vs 2.7 (SD 2.0) points (p<0.001); AMI 4.0 (SD 2.0) vs 2.5 (SD 2.0) points (p<0.001); lifestyle factors 5.4 (SD 1.2) vs 4.5 (SD 2.0) points p<0.001. Most of the students (77% at 6 months), regardless of the intervention applied, expressed that they would perform both chest compressions and ventilations in a cardiac arrest (CA) situation involving a relative. If a stranger had CA, a significantly lower proportion of students (32%; p<0.001) would perform both compressions and ventilations. In this case, however, many would perform compressions only. In most cases of bystander-witnessed OHCA, CPR was performed by laymen. Off-duty health care personnel bystanders initiated CPR within 1 minute vs 2 minutes for laymen (p<0.0001). Thirty-day survival was 14.7% among patients who received CPR from laymen and 17.2% (p=0.02) among patients who received bystander CPR from off-duty health care personnel. Conclusions: The DVD-based method was superior to the app-based method in terms of teaching practical CPR skills to 7th grade students. Of the additional interventions, a practical test with feedback was the most efficient intervention to increase learning outcome. The additional interventions, reflection, web course, visit from elite athletes and AED did not increase CPR skills further. However, the web course Help-Brain-Heart improved the students’ acquisition of theoretical knowledge regarding stroke, AMI and lifestyle factors. For OHCA, off-duty health care personnel bystanders initiated CPR earlier and 30-day survival was higher compared with laymen bystanders.

Download Free Bystander behaviors in peer victimization PDF by Björn Sjögren Full Book and published by Linköping University Electronic Press. This book was released on 2020-12-16 with total page 128 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: När elever blir utsatta för kränkningar finns ofta andra elever närvarande som åskådare. Dessa åskådare kan anta olika sociala roller: de kan assistera eller förstärka de som utsätter, försvara de som blir utsatta eller förbli passiva. Syftet med den här avhandlingen var att undersöka hur elevers åskådarbeteenden vid kränkningssituationer hänger samman med moraliskt disengagemang, elev-lärarrelationer och tillit till sin egen och klassens förmåga att försvara de som blir utsatta. Självrapporterade enkätdata samlades in från elever i årskurs 4–8 och analyserades med hjälp av olika statistiska metoder såsom flernivåanalys och strukturella ekvationsmodeller. Resultaten visar att de tre åskådarbeteendena hänger samman med faktorer på både individ- och klassnivå. Att assistera och förstärka de som utsätter hade starkast samband (positivt) med moraliskt disengagemang. Att försvara de som blir utsatta och att förbli passiv hade starkast samband (positivt respektive negativt) med självtillit. Resultaten pekar också på att det positiva sambandet mellan att försvara utsatta och självtillit går åt båda håll: försvararbeteenden predicerar självtillit och självtillit predicerar försvararbeteenden. I enlighet med socialkognitiv teori visar den här avhandlingen på betydelsen av att beakta ett komplicerat mönster av faktorer på olika nivåer när man studerar elevers åskådarbeteenden. Peer victimization most often occurs in the presence of bystanders, who play different social roles. They may assist or reinforce those who victimize, defend those who are victimized, or remain passive. The aim of this thesis was to investigate how students’ bystander behaviors in peer victimization are associated with moral disengagement, efficacy beliefs, and student-teacher relationship quality. Self-report questionnaire data were collected from students in grades 4 to 8, and were analyzed using different statistical methods, such as multilevel modeling and structural equation modeling. The findings show that the three types of bystander behaviors are associated with both individual- and classroom-level characteristics. Assisting and reinforcing those who victimize were most strongly associated (positively) with moral disengagement. Defending those who are victimized and remaining passive were most strongly associated (positively and negatively, respectively) with self-efficacy to defend victims. The findings also indicate that the positive association between students’ defending bystander behaviors and their self-efficacy to defend is bidirectional: defending predicts self-efficacy and self-efficacy predicts defending. In line with social cognitive theory, this thesis highlights the importance of considering a complex pattern of factors at different levels when addressing students’ bystander behaviors.

Download Free Products Liability Law PDF by Mark Geistfeld Full Book and published by Aspen Publishing. This book was released on 2021-10-07 with total page 800 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Products Liability Law, Second Edition, by prolific tort scholar Mark Geistfeld, represents the “next generation” of casebooks on products liability. Earlier texts focused on the relative merits of strict liability and negligence, embodied in the apparently competing liability frameworks of the consumer expectations test in the Restatement (Second) of Torts and the risk-utility test in the Restatement (Third) of Torts. The majority of courts, however, have incorporated the risk-utility test into the framework of consumer expectations. By providing balanced coverage of both consumer expectations and the risk-utility test, the casebook keeps pace with ongoing developments in the case law and moves beyond the battles that largely defined products liability in the twentieth century. In addition to teaching students how liability rules protect consumer expectations via comprehensive application of the risk-utility test, this innovative casebook underscores the importance of doctrinal history, the psychology of evaluating product risks, and the role of products liability in the modern regulatory state. Students will learn how courts have applied established doctrines to novel problems ranging from the relevance of scientific evidence in toxic-tort cases to the distribution of defective products on the Amazon online marketplace. To further illustrate this dynamic, the casebook has twenty-nine problems with associated analysis involving the liability issues likely to be raised by the emerging technology of autonomous vehicles. Finally, the casebook reinforces students’ knowledge of fundamental tort principles while developing specialized expertise and a deeper understanding of the torts process. New to the Second Edition: A dozen new main cases updating older case law, providing coverage of new issues not addressed in the First Edition, and/or improving upon the analysis provided by the associated case in the First Edition Retention of the majority of main cases from the first edition, with revisions to the ensuing notes incorporating relevant case law developments A reorganized and updated chapter covering the controversy over the relative merits of the consumer expectations and risk-utility tests Comprehensive discussion of the tort version of the implied warranty—the genesis of the consumer expectations test—and its relation to product malfunctions and the risk-utility test A new chapter addressing the existence of the tort duty and identifying the difference between patent dangers and patent defects Reorganization of the chapter on factual causation, emphasizing the continuity of evidentiary problems running across different types of cases, ranging from the heeding presumption in warning cases, to market-share liability, to proof of both general and specific causation in toxic-tort cases Professors and students will benefit from: Classroom-tested materials taught for over 20 years by an award-winning professor Interesting cases that illustrate both the traditional and contemporary character of products liability litigation; cases are followed by extensive notes Each chapter addressing doctrinal issues concludes with problems on autonomous vehicles. The full set of 29 problems provides students with the necessary background for understanding liability issues posed by this emerging technology. Each problem is followed by the author’s analysis of the associated issues, cross-referenced to the relevant casebook material.

This book was released on 2007 with total page 182 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This report addresses a complex and controversial issue: the human health risks associated with the use of agricultural pesticides. Some people are extremely concerned about their potential exposure to pesticides, arising because they occupy properties adjacent to farmland or because they have (or have had) access to such land, for example when using footpaths. The official position in the UK in response to these concerns has been that a robust approach to the assessment of human health risks associated with pesticide exposure already exists; and that there is no scientific case for taking additional measures, such as the introduction of no-spray buffer zones, to protect members of the public who may be in the vicinity of a sprayed area. But those who consider themselves to be adversely affected by pesticide spraying have not been reassured, and have continued to campaign for the adoption of more precautionary measures.
