Triple systems are among the simplest combinatorial designs, and are a natural generalization of graphs. They have connections with geometry, algebra, group theory, finite fields, and cyclotomy; they have applications in coding theory, cryptography, computer science, and statistics. Triple systems provide in many cases the prototype for deep results in combinatorial design theory; this design theory is permeated by problems that were first understood in the context of triple systems andthen generalized. Such a rich set of connections has made the study of triple systems an extensive, but sometimes disjointed, field of combinatorics. This book attempts to survey current knowledge on the subject, to gather together common themes, and to provide an accurate portrait of the huge variety of problems and results. Representative samples of the major syles of proof technique are included, as is a comprehensive bibliography.

The concept of the 'triple bottom line' (TBL) - the idea that business activity can simultaneously deliver financial, social and environmental benefits - was introduced in the early 1990s. A decade on, The Triple Bottom Line: Does it All Add Up? brings together the world's leading experts on corporate responsibility to assess the implications, benefits and limitations of the TBL. This collection provides a review of what has already been achieved in stimulating change in corporate culture and bringing businesses to an appreciation of the importance and benefits of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and good environmental performance. It further explores the conceptual and practical limits of the metaphor of the TBL and sets out what can be achieved through regulation and legislation, presenting detailed professional procedures for environmental accounting and management and social auditing. The contributors' wealth of experience and insight provides a vivid picture of how much attention is now being focused by businesses on delivering more than just financial targets, and they clearly outline the necessary steps for successfully continuing along this trajectory.

Gene, Organism, and Environment

One of our most brilliant evolutionary biologists, Richard Lewontin here provides a concise, accessible account of what his work has taught him about biology and about its relevance to human affairs. In the process, he exposes some of the common and troubling misconceptions that misdirect and stall our understanding of biology and evolution. Rejecting the notion that genes determine the organism, which then adapts to the environment, he explains that organisms, influenced in their development by their circumstances, in turn create, modify, and choose the environment in which they live.

The Triple Agent

The al-Qaeda Mole who Infiltrated the CIA

A stunning narrative account of the mysterious Jordanian who penetrated both the inner circle of al-Qaeda and the highest reaches of the CIA, with a devastating impact on the war on terror. In December 2009, a group of the CIA’s top terrorist hunters gathered at a secret base in Khost, Afghanistan, to greet a rising superspy: Humam Khalil al-Balawi, a Jordanian double-agent who infiltrated the upper ranks of al-Qaeda. For months, he had sent shocking revelations from inside the terrorist network and now promised to help the CIA assassinate Osama bin Laden’s top deputy. Instead, as he stepped from his car, he detonated a thirty-pound bomb strapped to his chest, instantly killing seven CIA operatives, the agency’s worst loss of life in decades. In The Triple Agent, Pulitzer Prize–winning reporter Joby Warrick takes us deep inside the CIA’s secret war against al-Qaeda, a war that pits robotic planes and laser-guided missiles against a cunning enemy intent on unleashing carnage in American cities. Flitting precariously between the two sides was Balawi, a young man with extraordinary gifts who managed to win the confidence of hardened terrorists as well as veteran spymasters. With his breathtaking accounts from inside al-Qaeda’s lair, Balawi appeared poised to become America’s greatest double-agent in half a century—but he was not at all what he seemed. Combining the powerful momentum of Black Hawk Down with the institutional insight of Jane Mayer’s The Dark Side, Warrick takes the readers on a harrowing journey from the slums of Amman to the inner chambers of the White House in an untold true story of miscalculation, deception, and revenge. From the Hardcover edition.

Inhaltsangabe:Problemstellung: In Zeiten der zunehmenden Globalisierung und steigender Naturkatastrophen in Verbindung mit der globalen Erderwärmung wird der Fokus international auf einen schonenden und ergiebigeren Umgang mit den Umweltressourcen gerichtet. Zurzeit produziert die Menschheit irreversible ökologische Schäden, die sich in Form von Zerstörung der Ozonschicht, Klimawandel oder Überfischung der Weltmeere auftreten. Nachfolgende Generationen können diese Schäden nicht wieder rückgängig machen und müssen mit den Konsequenzen leben ohne ein Wahlrecht zu haben. Jeder Mensch ist auf irgendeine Art und Weise von unternehmerischen Aktivitäten betroffen und ist daher an den relevanten Informationen interessiert. Dieser Wissensbedarf nach Informationen über bspw. Arbeitsverhältnissen, Umweltbewusstsein oder effizienten Verbrauch von Ressourcen wird mit der Nachhaltigkeitsberichterstattung gedeckt. Grund hierfür ist nicht die einseitige Fokussierung auf finanzielle Zahlen, sondern auch ökologischen und sozialen Informationen. Die Entwicklungen seit der Konferenz in Rio de Janeiro mit der Verabschiedung der Rio Deklaration und der Agenda 21 zeigen, dass Unternehmen langfristig ihre Handlungen in Richtung „sustainability development“ ausrichten müssen. Zielsetzung der nachhaltigen Entwicklung ist die gegenwärtigen Bedürfnisse der Bevölkerung zu decken und dabei für zukünftige Generationen die Chance zu erhalten ihre Forderungen nach einem akzeptablen Lebensstandard befriedigen zu können. Aktuelles öffentliches Informationsinteresse könnte im Bereich Arbeitspolitik bestehen, wie bspw. Ausschreibungen von Ausbildungsplätzen. Hierfür sind neue Betrachtungsweisen und innovative Lösungsansätze erforderlich. Gerade für Geschäftsprozesse sind neue Ansätze in den Bereichen Technologien und Management mit Fokus auf die Auswirkungen auf die Umwelt notwendig. Je früher sich Unternehmen mit dem Nachhaltigen Aspekt auseinander setzten, desto einfacher ist später die Umsetzung im Bereich Reporting. Laut dem Europäischen Parlament ist es realistisch, den Energiebedarf der Bevölkerung ab dem Jahr 2020 mit 25 Prozent der regenerativen Energiequellen zu decken. Durch diesen Ansatz ist die Aufforderung der nachhaltigen Wertentwicklung auf Basis der ökologischen, ökonomischen und sozialen Ebene realisiert. Jedoch muss diese Handlungsweise weltweit ausgeweitet werden. Die Idee dieser Berichterstattung ist nicht neu entstanden, sondern wurde nur neu aufgerollt. [...]

Three allegories—an Odysseus (Homer) allegory, a man-machine symbiosis (Arthur Clarke) allegory, and a Zarathustra (Nietzsche) allegory—are simultaneously concealed and revealed by well over 200 highly imaginative and sometimes devilishly clever symbols. In bringing Kubrick's secrets to light, Wheat builds a powerful case for his assertion that 2001 is the "grandest motion picture ever filmed."

Love him or hate him, Triple H does what he wants, when he wants to do it. And now, for the first time anywhere, he tells you how he does it—and how you can, too. More than a personal account of life in and out of the ring, Making the Game: Triple H’s Approach to a Better Body is Triple H’s verbal and visual blueprint for building your body. The leader of Evolution discusses how “a jones for bodybuilding and a love for wrestling” morphed a skinny, 135-pound fourteen-year-old from Nashua, New Hampshire, into one of the biggest superstars ever to dominate World Wrestling Entertainment. But be warned—the “Cerebral Assassin” has zero tolerance for anything less than a hundred percent effort. He's spent the past twenty years living by the philosophy that training results in improved strength and conditioning, self-discipline, and an ability to focus on setting goals. This book isn't for big mouths who'd rather exercise their egos than their deltoids. Besides offering step-by-step exercises for both novice bodybuilders and those looking to radically advance their workout, Making the Game weighs in on the science behind progressive-training resistance and rest-pause techniques; the significance of exercise form over volume; the truth behind achieving “six-pack abs”; the dangers of overtraining and “skullcrushing” exercises that risk injury; and how creativity can go a long way in your workout. Triple H sees it as his mission to provide the guidelines for you to follow in the months and years ahead. And if there's one thing he knows how to do, it’s succeed. It's time to stop playing The Game...and time to start Making The Game.
