This book describes the evolving CBRN risk landscape and highlights advances in the “core” CBRN technologies, including when combined with (improvised) explosive devices (CBRNe threats). It analyses how associated technologies create new safety and security risks, challenging certain assumptions that underlie current control regimes. The book also shows how technologies can be enablers for more effective strategies to mitigate these risks. 21st-century safety and security risks emanating from chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear materials – whether resulting from natural events, accidents or malevolent use - are increasingly shaped by technologies that enable their development, production or use in ways that differ from the past. Artificial intelligence, the use of cyberspace, the revolution in the life sciences, new manufacturing methods, new platforms and equipment for agent delivery, hypersonic weapons systems, information tools utilised in hybrid warfare – these and other technologies are reshaping the global security environment and CBRN landscape. They are leading to a growing potential for highly targeted violence, and they can lead to greater instability and vulnerability worldwide. At the same time, technology offers solutions to manage CBRN risks. Examples are faster detection, more accurate characterisation of the nature and origin of CBRN agents, new forensic investigation methods, or new medical treatments for victims of CBRN incidents. New educational concepts help to foster a culture of responsibility in science and technology and strengthen governance. New training methods help develop practical skills to manage CBRN risks more effectively. The book concludes that there is a growing need for a holistic framework towards CBRN risk mitigation. Traditional arms control mechanisms such as global, regional or bilateral treaties and export controls are still needed, as they provide a necessary legal and institutional framework. But laws and technology denial alone will not suffice, and institutional mechanisms can at times be weak. Given the pace of technological progress and the diffusion of critical knowledge, tools and materials, policymakers must accept that CBRN risks cannot be eliminated altogether. Instead, society has to learn to manage these risks and develop resilience against them. This requires a “softer”, broadly based multi-stakeholder approach involving governments, industry, the research and development communities, educators, and civil society. Furthermore, educating policymakers that cutting-edge technologies may seriously affect global strategic stability could create incentives for developing a more creative and contemporary arms control strategy that fosters cooperation rather than incremental polarisation.

The Ancient Wisdom is a body of pure knowledge of God and creation that has existed for millenniums. It has been in existence since time began, long before the appearance of any of today's major religions. Although ancient in source, it has a philosophical integrity that is as relevant in today's life as it has been in every previous period of time. No irreconcilable leaps of faith are required. No mysteries. All is knowable. The wisdom contained herein is that which has always been previously communicated to interested spiritual aspirants who sought it out. This book continues that tradition.

Description: Private higher education is perhaps the most rapidly growing segment of postsecondary education worldwide. In this collection, the authors provide a multifaceted and comparative analysis of private higher education and consider both broad issues and specific case studies. The only book currently available to lend an international focus to this subject, it examines such topics as accreditation, funding, and the impact of the market in the context of Latin American, European, and Asian higher education, and is a unique and invaluable study for researchers and policymakers alike. Including case studies from Hungary, India, Mexico, Chile, and Malaysia, this book offers new perspectives on such key issues as the relationship of private higher education to social and economic development, competition among institutions, and the association between government and private universities. As private higher education has the potential to provide postsecondary access while limiting public expenditure, it is a significant subject that has thus far been accorded only the narrowest attention. This groundbreaking collection analyzes for the first time its implications in a variety of countries, both developed and developing.

The editors of this volume point out that globalization calls for global history--history that treats the planet as a single complex entity. Several of the chapters address the origins of globalization's first wave in the 19th century, focusing on the interrelationship between economics and the spread of three pioneering inventions: the steam engine, the telegraph and the telephone. Others chronicle the late twentieth-century textile and bicycle industries, the development of the ATM machine, railroad modernization in France, major software disasters and the culturally empowering effects of the cassette tape. And three authors make fundamental arguments about the nature of globalization's changes: how the ties binding Europeans have evolved from patronage to connections to networks, how global interconnectedness has eliminated differences in the perception of time, and how the key to understanding the dynamics of globalization lies in the local application of standardized technology.

One of the greatest challenges to be faced in the 21st century is to effect a well integrated and environmentally acceptable solution for urban transportation. Considerable technical developments have taken place in recent years with the emergence of new and more advanced vehicular and transportation systems. There is also increasing pressure on the government to resolve transportation problems which have such an important effect on our society.

WHAT IS TSOG? It's the "Tsarist Occupational Government", those wonderful folks in Washington B.C. (oops, sorry, that's D.C.) who, OF COURSE, always have your best interest at heart. Of course. "TSOG" is Bob's most powerful political statement to date. What is happening RIGHT NOW to human freedom? What in the world is the U.S. doing with a drug TSAR(!) who routinely and gleefully destroys millions of lives and bullies the governments of the rest of the world into prosecuting an insane war on [some] drugs? How did a Nazi spy come to have an enormous influence on current U.S. foreign policy? Will the 'war on terrorism' put the last nail in the coffin of YOUR rights? Would Hannibal Lecter make a better president than George W. Bush? Bob's keen wit skewers those who are forcing us all into slavery, and warns us that there is little time left. How long will it be before Bob's books are banned as 'literary terrorism'?

The myth of Prometheus has long served as a symbol of the industrialization and individualism of the modern world, yet Arthur Mitzman aims to demonstrate an alternative conception emphasizing creativity over productivity, and a harmonious union with nature rather than its technocratic conquest.
