Agriculture in a regional, spatial and dynamic context: An agent-based representation of policy response By Martin Damgaard
eBook (PDF): $0.00
The recent reform of the CAP introduced significant changes for the European agricultural sector. The implications of the change on the structure of farms in the European landscape have been the... More > epicenter from which the research presented originates. Here particularly with a focus on the spatial and temporal results of different CAP reform options. Therefore the incorporation of Geographic Information System into the applied agent-based model AgriPoliS has been a part of the present study. Furthermore an extensive analysis of the spatial sensitivity of the model has been performed showing the model to be stable in its results. Having presented an opportunity to evaluate the reliability of AgriPoliS the foundation is laid for investigating the effects different CAP-reform options have on the structural development in three European regions. The investigation of the three regions enables at the same time one to see how the same CAP reform options propagate differently within the different European regions.< Less
Avoiding Vietnam: The U.S. Army’'s Response To Defeat In Southeast Asia By Conrad C. Crane & Strategic Studies Institute
Paperback: $15.96
Prints in 3-5 business days
As American operations against terrorism spread around the globe to places like Afghanistan and the Philippines, an increasing tendency has been for commentators to draw parallels with past... More > experience in Vietnam. Even soldiers on the ground have begun to speak in such terms. Dr. Conrad Crane analyzes the Army’s response to that defeat in Southeast Asia and its long-term impact. Contrary to the accepted wisdom that nations which lose wars tend to learn best how to correct their mistakes, he argues that Americans tried to forget the unhappy experience with counterinsurgency by refocusing on conventional wars. While that process eventually produced the powerful force that won the Persian Gulf War, it left an Army with force structure, doctrine, and attitudes that are much less applicable to the peace operations and counterterrorism campaign it now faces.< Less
Improvised Explosive Devices in Iraq, 2003-09: A Case of Operational Surprise and Institutional Response [Enlarged Edition] By Andrew Smith et al.
Paperback: $18.49
Prints in 3-5 business days
Surprise is a familiar term in military writings and is enshrined in most nations’ doctrine. Surprises that emerge in tactics, however, can also operate at the strategic and operational levels... More > and are particularly dangerous because they can test the relevance and adaptability of military forces and the ‘institutional’ defense establishments that create, develop, and sustain them. A military establishment that is too slow to recognize and respond to such surprises places its nation’s interests at grave risk. Western nations are contemplating major reductions in defense spending, with consequent limitations on force structure. As the range of enemy capabilities that a force will be able to match, qualitatively and quantitatively, becomes smaller, the potential for operational and strategic surprise will increase. A key conclusion from this analysis is the critical role of strategic leadership in recognizing the scale of surprise and in forcing the necessary institutional response.< Less
Blast-resistance Benefits of Seismic Design - Phase 2 Study: Performance Analysis of Structural Steel Strengthening Systems By Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
Paperback: $20.51
Prints in 3-5 business days
This series of publications was developed in response to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the New York World Trade Center and the subsequent events that led to the formation of DHS and an... More > increased emphasis on preparedness and mitigation of terrorism-related hazards. One issue that FEMA began shortly after that was to examine whether lessons learned in response to natural hazards could be effectively applied to protect building occupants from human threats. Important similarities between seismic and blast loadings (e.g., both can impose extreme horizontal forces on a structure within a small time frame) lend themselves to such examination.< Less
[ebook] Theoretical Studies of Structure-Function Relationships in Kv Channels: Electrostatics of the Voltage Sensor By Alexander Peyser

Building Partner Capacity / Security Force Assistance: A New Structural Paradigm [Enlarged Edition] By Scott G. Wuestner
Paperback: $18.49

The Civil Response Corps (CRC) would function much like our military reserve. It would ease the burden on the Armed Forces by allowing the hiring of civilians with critical skills to serve on... More > missions abroad when America needs them. The CRC is a product of the efforts of State Department’s Coordinator for Reconstruction and Stabilization (S/CRS). The core mission of S/CRS is to lead, coordinate, and institutionalize U.S. Government civilian capacity to prevent or prepare for post-conflict situations, and to help stabilize and reconstruct societies in transition from conflict or civil strife, so they can reach a sustainable path toward peace, good governance, and a market economy. As the General Purpose Force looks forward to expanding roles in Irregular Warfare, Foreign Internal Defense, Security Assistance and Stability Operations, does the U.S. Army or the Department of Defense have the proper force structure and minimal capability to fight and win through all phases of conflict?< Less

By calculating the partition function computed from the electrostatic energy, I compute expectations of charge displacement, energetics, probability distributions of translation & rotation and Maxwell stress for S2, S3 & S4 arrangements. A ‘paddle’ model is rejected on electrostatic grounds. On the other hand, a ‘sliding helix’ model with three local counter-charges, a protein dielectric coefficient of 4 and a 2/3 interval of counter-charge positioning relative to the S4 α-helix period of positive residues is electrostatically reasonable, comparing well with Shaker. These ‘sliding helix’ models compare favorably with experimental results for mutant charge experiments on Shaker. Movies: https://sites.google.com/site/alexpeyserthesis< Less

Clinical Laboratories: The Practical Application of a Theoretical Model for the Early Detection and Initial Response to a Covert Large-Scale Bio-Terror Assault with Anthrax Spores. By Leslie J. King, Ph.D.

In this study, the researcher performed a meta-analysis of published research articles containing keywords for the early detection and initial response to a large-scale covert attack with anthrax.... More > The meta-analysis results were used to formulate a model for the early detection and initial response for clinical laboratories. The research model was then compared to data collected from clinical laboratory administrators who took part in a semi-structured interview pertaining to the current clinical laboratory practices from various clinical laboratory settings in a Midwest city of approximately one million citizens. The research findings of this study resulted in identifying that the American public remains vulnerable to a large-scale covert attack with anthrax. This is because the traditional beliefs, standard operating procedures, and the need to make a profit dictate the clinical laboratory profession, not the increasing threat of a biological attack and the danger to the American public.< Less
