The New York City Fire Department, like the entire fire service, has been proven to be a primary stakeholder in Homeland Security. The mindset of firefighters is influenced by traditional and expected roles that are not fully considerate of the challenges accompanying the “new enemy” of terrorism. A fundamental deficiency is herein identified as the manner in which information is managed. The FDNY must adapt so as to recognize information as an entity that must be collected, saved and utilized holistically for greater preventative and response capabilities. It must adopt lessons learned by others in the pursuit of better information management. These needs also exist, to a great extent, within the national fire service. This thesis will use a detailed analysis of existing FDNY information systems, a review of the criticality of information to past events, and the perspectives of FDNY firefighters to identify common denominators of deficiency. It will examine the manner in which . . .

Landscape ecology is the science of linking patterns and processes across scale in both space and time. Thus landscape ecology is, in a real sense, the foundational science for addressing the central issues of sensitive dependence of ecological process on spatial and temporal variability. This chapter reviews the historical origins and evolution of landscape ecology, discusses its current scope and limitations, and then anticipates the following chapter by looking forward to identify how the field could best expand to address the central challenges of ecological prediction in spatially complex, temporally disequilibrial, multi-­scale ecological systems.

American federalism, which shapes the roles, responsibilities, and interactions among and between the federal government, the states, and local governments, is continuously evolving, adapting to changes in American society and American political institutions. The nature of federalism relationships in surface transportation policy has also evolved over time, with the federal government’s role becoming increasingly influential, especially since the Federal-­Aid to Highway Act of 1956 which authorized the interstate highway system. In recent years, state and local government officials, through their public interest groups (especially the National Governors Association, National Conference of State Legislatures, National Association of Counties, National League of Cities, U.­S. Conference of Mayors, and American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials) have lobbied for increased federal assistance for surface transportation grants and increased flexibility in the use . . .

This book is about a topic which affects almost everyone. So-­called taxation, which is getting increasingly out of hand in many countries of the world, is robbing us of the freedom to direct our lives ourselves. Instead, we are forced into a system where bureaucrats paid well by the taxpayers determine our lives more and more incisively.

In order to evaluate taxes adequately, we will have a closer look at the following aspects:
a. What methods are used to raise taxes?
b. How high are the taxes?
c. How simple or complicated is tax law(lessness)?
d. Who is privileged in taxation and who is disadvantaged?
e. What are taxes used for?

If that is not enough, we will also show why taxes, namely the money that the government has taken from you in an extortionate manner, are even used massively against you. With your taxes you pay, for example, for your own surveillance and thus the destruction of your privacy. That is only one of many examples.

We will also show you . . .

War, genocide, and foreign occupation have taken their toll on Cambodia. These events have demolished infrastructure, overturned ruling parties, and led to the deaths of millions. Although these events are now past, many of the resulting ramifications still linger. One such remnant of the past are the landmines--­abundant in number and pervasive in their propagation, landmine-­related contamination continues to impact lives more than 30 years after the last war effort. The residual ordnance problem in Cambodia is being confronted by a team of well-­intentioned, motivated, and hardworking professionals. Current efforts, however, do not consider, account for, or target economic vulnerabilities that individuals and family structures encounter. This study analyzes the relationship between economic vulnerability and landmine-­related incidents. Specific accountability for vulnerability is . . .

A timely consideration of both the history and the current challenges facing practice-­based film training, Educating Film-­Makers is the first book to examine the history, impact, and significance of film education in Britain, Europe, and the United States. Film schools, the authors show, have historically focused on the cultivation of the film-­maker as a cultural activist, artist, or intellectual – fostering creativity and innovation. But more recently a narrower approach has emerged, placing a new emphasis on technical training for the industry. The authors argue for a more imaginative engagement and understanding of the broader social importance of film and television, suggesting that critical analysis and production should be connected. Examining current concerns facing practice-­based film education in the digital era, this book is indispensable for both film teachers and students alike.

Excerpt

Sharra gazed out of the large window in his quarters. He had never grown tired of the splendid view even though he had seen it his entire life. There before his eyes lay the enormous bright orange ball of Anshar or, as the humans called it, Saturn. Its surface was swirled with ever changing forms and patterns as storms, fueled by strong winds, swept gigantic clouds through its atmosphere. The gas giant dominated the blackness of space and a myriad of stars brilliantly twinkled through the countless rings which seemed to go on forever. He sighed at the sheer beauty of it all.

Still a young man by long-­lived Anunnaki standards, Sharra was an instructor of Early Earth History . . .
