The health and economic devastation caused by COVID-19 has revealed that most countries’ national health systems are inadequate to cope with pandemics. These are global challenges that call for global responses. At the heart of this book is a bold new proposal to create a global pandemic playbook that can be quickly deployed when the next pandemic strikes. Countries and their experts must collaborate to create early warning systems, preparedness, prevention, responses and containment. But who should pay the cost? Anne Kabagambe, a former Executive Board director for the World Bank Group, explores the options, and argues that to fail to learn from COVID-19 and neglect to create a global playbook now would cost far more when the next pandemic strikes.

Deliver enterprise data analytics success by following Prashanth’s prescriptive and practical techniques. Today, organizations across the globe are looking at ways to glean insights from data analytics and make good business decisions. However, not many business enterprises are successful in data analytics. According to Gartner, 80% of analytics programs do not deliver business outcomes. Mckinsey consulting says, less than 20% of the companies have achieved analytics at scale. So, how can a business enterprise avoid analytics failure and deliver business results? This book provides ten key analytics best practices that will improve the odds of delivering enterprise data analytics solutions successfully. It is intended for anyone who has a stake and interest in deriving insights from data analytics. The three key differentiating aspects of this book are: · Practicality. This book offers prescriptive, superior, and practical guidance. · Completeness. This book looks at data analytics holistically across the four key data analytics domains - data management, data engineering, data science, and data visualization. · Neutrality. This book is technologically agnostic and looks at analytics concepts without any reference to commercial analytics products and technologies. Dr. Southekal proves why he is one of the leading thinkers on data and analytics today. ‘Analytics Best Practices’ is an indispensable guide for business leaders and those looking to get into the analytics field on the nuances, challenges, and immense opportunities with data. Douglas B. Laney Principal, Data & Analytics Strategy, Caserta, and author of “Infonomics” Dr. Southekal’s book is a treasure trove of best practices and practical examples from the field of Data Analytics. Upen Varanasi CEO & Co-Founder, Riversand Technologies What I like about this book is its focus on real-world best practices with an extensive set of practical tips and tricks.

How the politicization of the pandemic endangers our lives—and our democracy COVID-19 has killed more people than any war or public health crisis in American history, but the scale and grim human toll of the pandemic were not inevitable. Pandemic Politics examines how Donald Trump politicized COVID-19, shedding new light on how his administration tied the pandemic to the president’s political fate in an election year and chose partisanship over public health, with disastrous consequences for all of us. Health is not an inherently polarizing issue, but the Trump administration’s partisan response to COVID-19 led ordinary citizens to prioritize what was good for their “team” rather than what was good for their country. Democrats, in turn, viewed the crisis as evidence of Trump’s indifference to public well-being. At a time when solidarity and bipartisan unity were sorely needed, Americans came to see the pandemic in partisan terms, adopting behaviors and attitudes that continue to divide us today. This book draws on a wealth of new data on public opinion to show how pandemic politics has touched all aspects of our lives—from the economy to race and immigration—and puts America’s COVID-19 response in global perspective. An in-depth account of a uniquely American tragedy, Pandemic Politics reveals how the politicization of the COVID-19 pandemic has profound and troubling implications for public health and the future of democracy itself.

This book examines the role of law and policy in addressing the public health crisis of COVID-19 and offers reforms that could improve pandemic preparedness for future outbreaks. Focusing on a number of countries most expected to provide agility and organization in their crisis response – the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom and Taiwan – the book shows how failures in leadership from governments, executives, and institutions created a vacuum that was quickly filled by naysayers, conspiracy theorists, vaccine hucksters, and fake news generators. Through the key themes of healthcare, leadership, security, and education, the chapters address critical questions: Why have masks become such a polarizing force? How do you self-isolate if you don’t have a home? How should equitable triage models for overwhelmed frontline healthcare workers be developed? Can we utilize artificial intelligence to educate the public about manipulated information they access concerning the pandemic? The book was written during the pandemic and weaves in to each chapter vignettes with personal revelations from a broad range of countries, including some also grappling with poverty, war, natural disasters, or revolution. It will appeal to academics, professionals, and policymakers interested in how law and health policy can converge on solutions for global infectious disease. It is suitable for use in upper-level courses.
