Russell Mullins has left intelligence work. When his wife died of cancer, Rusty quit the Secret Service to repurpose his life. He joins a private protection company in Washington, DC, and is assigned to guard Paul Luguire, a Federal Reserve executive and chief liaison with the US Treasury. Mullins and Luguire form a strong friendship. So when a police detective calls in the middle of the night with word of Luguire’s suicide, Mullins doesn’t buy it. His doubts are reinforced by Amanda Church, a former Secret Service colleague now in the Federal Reserve’s cybersecurity unit. She uncovered a suspicious financial transaction initiated by Luguire only days before his death. He authorized the transfer of unrequested funds from the Federal Reserve to a regional bank. Even stranger, after Luguire’s suicide, Amanda finds the transaction has been erased from Federal Reserve records; the regional bank now shows the money wired from an offshore account in the name of Russell Mullins. Someone is setting Rusty up. And when the bank president is murdered, Mullins rockets to the top of the suspect list.In an age of Wall Street meltdowns and a downgraded US credit rating, the secretive Federal Reserve is compromised. Mullins and Church don’t know whom to trust. Evidence points to an external terrorist attack, but the web of deceit appears woven from within and threatens to destroy the heart of America’s financial system. Twelve targets are known. The clock is ticking. What, or who, is the thirteenth? Mark de Castrique is a veteran of the television and film industry and serves as an adjunct professor at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. 1. Language: English.

A thorough and comprehensive guide to the theoretical, practical, and methodological approaches used in survey experiments across disciplines such as political science, health sciences, sociology, economics, psychology, and marketingThis book explores and explains the broad range of experimental designs embedded in surveys that use both probability and non-probability samples. It approaches the usage of survey-based experiments with a Total Survey Error (TSE) perspective, which provides insight on the strengths and weaknesses of the techniques used.Experimental Methods in Survey Research: Techniques that Combine Random Sampling with Random Assignment addresses experiments on within-unit coverage, reducing nonresponse, question and questionnaire design, minimizing interview measurement bias, using adaptive design, trend data, vignettes, the analysis of data from survey experiments, and other topics, across social, behavioral, and marketing science domains.Each chapter begins with a description of the experimental method or application and its importance, followed by reference to relevant literature. At least one detailed original experimental case study then follows to illustrate the experimental method's deployment, implementation, and analysis from a TSE perspective. The chapters conclude with theoretical and practical implications on the usage of the experimental method addressed. In summary, this book:Fills a gap in the current literature by successfully combining the subjects of survey methodology and experimental methodology in an effort to maximize both internal validity and external validityOffers a wide range of types of experimentation in survey research with in-depth attention to their various methodologies and applicationsIs edited by internationally recognized experts in the field of survey research/methodology and in the usage of survey-based experimentation --featuring contributions from across a variety of disciplines in the social and behavioral sciencesPresents advances in the field of survey experiments, as well as relevant references in each chapter for further studyIncludes more than 20 types of original experiments carried out within probability sample surveysAddresses myriad practical and operational aspects for designing, implementing, and analyzing survey-based experiments by using a Total Survey Error perspective to address the strengths and weaknesses of each experimental technique and methodExperimental Methods in Survey Research: Techniques that Combine Random Sampling with Random Assignment is an ideal reference for survey researchers and practitioners in areas such political science, health sciences, sociology, economics, psychology, public policy, data collection, data science, and marketing.

Probiotic Bacteria and Their Effect on Human He...

Our microflora is an individual personal feature, providing a distinct tag to individuals. However, our intestinal microbiome is strongly affected by genetic, nutritional, and other external factors, and evolves with age. An effect of different microbial patterns on health appears very likely as there seem to be specific changes of intestinal microflora associated with various diseases. Specific microbial tags may thus be used as biomarkers of disease: to diagnose it, to monitor its evolution, and eventually to predict its response to treatment. This scenario opens the opportunity for targeting intestinal microflora using probiotics, both for prevention and treatment of an increasing number of conditions. Probiotic therapy is applied either as an adjunct to other treatments or as primary therapy, and evidence of efficacy is accumulating in several conditions, affecting either the intestine or nonintestinal organs. This publication provides an update on probiotics directed at physicians, biologists, biotechnologists, and researchers working in the food industry and agriculture, as well as in the environmental and basic sciences.

Making Good Financial Regulation - Towards a Po...

How can we mitigate the risk that the financial regulatory process may unduly favour narrow industry interests at the expense of the public? The global financial crisis brought the close interaction between policymakers and financial industry players in the regulation of financial markets under the spotlight, and highlighted the risk that this proximity may distort the content of regulatory policies away from the public interest. However, while references to the concept of 'regulatory capture' have permeated much of the discourse on financial regulation, a debate regarding policy measures which could be introduced to strengthen the integrity of the policymaking process in finance has struggled to emerge. This publication makes a contribution towards addressing this gap. It combines the perspectives of academics, former regulators, financial industry practitioners, representatives of consumer groups and non-financial end users, and policymakers from outside finance, to discuss the aspects of the policymaking process in finance which may divert the content of regulatory policies away from the public interest, as well as available policy solutions to mitigate this risk. 'Driven by hubris, greed and stupidity bankers led the charge off the cliff. But where were the regulators? Why did they not see it coming? Why did they not prevent it? Why did they trust bankers to know what was best for banking? In short, how could regulators have been so dumb as to believe that bankers were so smart? This book supplies answers to these questions. It explores the ways in which regulators can sometimes be captivated, co-opted and conned by those they regulate. Best of all, it suggests a number of actionable policies to mitigate the problem.' Robert Jenkins (external member of the Financial Policy Committee of the Bank of England and Adjunct Professor, Finance at London Business School)

Living in Limbo
38,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Description: Limbo has traditionally been viewed as a place between heaven, on the one hand, and purgatory and hell, on the other, to which the patriarchs, who lived under the old law, and babies who died before being baptized into the Christian faith have been consigned. Like purgatory, it is a dark place but not deprived of grace. Now that the Roman Catholic Church has declared that limbo is not an official church teaching, the idea of limbo has been freed from ecclesiastical constraints and available for reflection on the human condition on this side of the grave. Living in Limbo by Donald Capps and Nathan Carlin focuses on the acute limbo situations that are an integral part of human life, including the vicissitudes of growing up, of forming committed relationships, of finding employment and staying employed, of undergoing life-threatening illnesses, and of experiencing dislocation and doubt. Using cases and examples of real-life persons, the book identifies the forms of distress likely to occur throughout the duration of the limbo experience, and it also identifies the internal and external resources that individuals draw upon as they cope with the stresses and uncertainties of living in limbo. Drawing on the traditional view, especially reflected in Christian art, that Christ descends into limbo to comfort and liberate its occupants, Living in Limbo comes down on the side of hope versus despair. In reading about other limbo dwellers, readers will meet themselves-or someone they love and care about-and will be encouraged by the very fact that they are not alone. Although it is not a pleasant place to be, limbo is not a place of solitary confinement, and one derives strength and resilience from the presence of the others. Endorsements: ''In this stimulating work we are invited to look at the margins of our lives for those disorienting experiences that often remain unexplored. By identifying common limbo experiences and their core elements the authors assist us in navigating a dimension of life that is very often neglected. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a concrete understanding of these complex life experiences.'' --Phil C. Zylla Academic Dean and Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology McMaster Divinity College ''With a trove of compelling and vivid narratives of lived experience, Donald Capps and Nathan Carlin illustrate quite powerfully the possibility of cultivating a spirit of hopefulness and resilience even when our lives are most acutely in a state of confusion and disorientation. Through the creative application of the resources of the Christian faith, this book effectively addresses, with compassion and humor and wisdom, the many different states of 'limbo' familiar to all of us.'' --Kirk A. Bingaman Assistant Professor and Director of Pastoral Care and Counseling Fordham University ''This book breathes new psychological and religious life into the ancient theological doctrine of 'Limbo,' recently disowned by the Catholic Church. Readers will find new sources of hope, insight, and solidarity in the limbo situations of people struggling to find their way along this journey we call life.'' --Thomas R. Cole McGovern Chair in Medical Humanities University of Texas--Houston Health Science Center Medical School About the Contributor(s): Donald Capps is Professor of Pastoral Psychology (Emeritus) and Adjunct Professor at Princeton Theological Seminary.
