This is the book that market strategists have been waiting for to position themselves in global markets and take advantage of the opportunities that demographic bonuses and deficits offer to them and their products. It is also a book for teachers and students of consumer behaviour to grasp the importance of the life cycle as a framework that shapes the demand for goods and services determined by changes in social, economic and physical functioning. It gives insights into gendered consumer behaviour and cohort effects. It presents a range of views on consumer behaviour and how demographic perspectives enhance these perspectives. The book offers conceptual and analytical tools that can be used in the assessment of population characteristics as determinants of market size, composition and potential for a variety of products. It offers organising frameworks as well as empirical evidence of consumer behaviour in clusters of markets, with different rates of population growth and age . . .

"New Visions of Nature" focuses on the emergence of these new visions of complex nature in three domains. The first selection of essays reflects public visions of nature, that is, nature as it is experienced, encountered, and instrumentalized by diverse publics.  The second selection zooms in on micro nature and explores the world of contemporary genomics. The final section returns to the macro world and discusses the ethics of place in present-­day landscape philosophy and environmental ethics. The contributions to this volume explore perceptual and conceptual boundaries between the human and the natural, or between an ‘out there’ and ‘in here.­’ They attempt to specify how nature has been publicly and genomically constructed, known and described through metaphors and re-­envisioned in terms of landscape and place. By parsing out and rendering explicit these divergent views, the volume asks for a re-­thinking of our relationship with nature.

This is the first comprehensive estate-­planning guide for those living with a chronic disease or disability. This book is targeted at those planning for the disbursement of their estates, no matter their size.­Estate-­planning is crucial for those living with a chronic disease or disability: individuals must express their preferences whether to receive long-­term care at home rather than in a nursing home in the event that they become more disabled, and it is more important for one who has a chronic illness to name a power of attorney. Estate Planning for People with a Chronic Condition or Disability covers all of those topics plus: How to write your will How to determine how much life insurance your family needs How to figure out whether you need a living trust Learn about powers of attorney When to work with a lawyer, if you need to The book also includes downloadable sample forms for: Power of Attorney Living Will Designation of Proxy for Financial and Health Decisions

Getting It Done was written for those who have answered the call to public service. Now, in this revised edition, the editors of IBM’s Center for The Business of Government series have assembled a comprehensive guide to navigating the current environment of government, and what government leaders ought to know to survive and thrive with respect to the ways it’s evolved over the years.

This volume gathers together 14 interviews with M A K Halliday, the founder of systemic functional linguistics (SFL), recorded over four decades � the most recent of which was conducted in 2011 and published here for the first time. In these engaging conversations with colleagues Halliday explores his own development as a student of language in Britain and China, the evolution of SFL theory around the world, its place in the field of general linguistics and its many sites of application. The dialogic mode enacted here allows Halliday to touch on many points of personal history and intellectual challenge that have not been addressed in formal publications (in his books or collected papers), including answers to the many thought-­provoking questions his colleagues had waited sometimes years to ask. Accordingly each chapter offers a fresh illuminating window on the innovative thinking and assured convictions of this towering figure in linguistics.

User Modeling and Adaptation for Daily Routines is motivated by the need to bring attention to how people with special needs can benefit from adaptive methods and techniques in their everyday lives. Assistive technologies, adaptive systems and context-­aware applications are three well-­established research fields. There is, in fact, a vast amount of literature that covers HCI-­related issues in each area separately. However, the contributions in the intersection of these areas have been less visible, despite the fact that such synergies may have a great impact on improving daily living.­Presenting a comprehensive review of state-­of-­the-­art practices on user modeling and adaptation for people with special needs, as well as some reflections on the challenges that need to be addressed in this direction, topics covered within this volume include the analysis, design, implementation and evaluation of adaptive systems to assist users with special needs to take decisions and fulfil daily . . .

This book applies to the scientific area of electronic design automation (EDA) and addresses the automatic sizing of analog integrated circuits (ICs). Particularly, this book presents an approach to enhance a state-­of-­the-­art layout-­aware circuit-­level optimizer (GENOM-­POF), by embedding statistical knowledge from an automatically generated gradient model into the multi-­objective multi-­constraint optimization kernel based on the NSGA-­II algorithm. The results showed allow the designer to explore the different trade-­offs of the solution space, both through the achieved device sizes, or the respective layout solutions.

In an age when partisan politics has reached a deafening—and arguably impotent—pitch, how does the real work of politics get done? This book opens the door on backroom politics and gives readers an insider’s perspective on the efforts of policymakers from three presidential administrations to get past the naysayers and effect real and lasting policy changes.­The editors take a comparative approach, offering a thorough overview of policymaking during the Clinton and George W. Bush administrations, with further discussion of President Obama’s successful and failed attempts to build coalitions and get past no. The contributors, a national network of prominent political scientists, reveal the sausage-­making of politics and policy. Readers can almost see the political players in the proverbial smoke-­filled room, shirtsleeves rolled up and BlackBerrys in hand, developing the strategies and hammering out the compromises designed to hold the party base while winning over independent . . .

Après la microéconomie et la macroéconomie, voilà la mésoéconomie, « l'économie de branche ». Elle s'est beaucoup développée ces dernières années en France et hors de France, tant dans le domaine de l'analyse économique de l'actualité que dans celui de l'histoire économique. À l'intérieur de l'équipe de recherche de Frédéric Mauro, le groupe de travail de Soline Alemany a su réunir une série d'études sur les transports et leurs liens avec le commerce en Amérique latine aux XIXe et XXe siècles. La vision qui en résulte est celle des observateurs venus de l'extérieur : essentiellement française et nord-­américaine. On remarquera l'importance des chemins de fer et des ports, les deux instruments de la révolution industrielle et de ses prolongements dans la moitié méridionale du Nouveau Monde. On sera aussi frappé par le problème de l'investissement, le premier qui se pose dans cette grande aventure. Problème d'actualité, lié aujourd'hui à celui de la dette externe...
