The misuse of an organization's information systems by employees, whether through error or by intent, can result in leaked and corrupted data, crippled networks, lost productivity, legal problems, and public embarrassment. As organizations turn to technology to monitor employee use of network resources, they are finding themselves at odds with workers who instinctively feel their privacy is being invaded. The Visible Employee reports the results of an extensive four-year research project, covering a range of security solutions for at-risk organizations as well as the perceptions and attitudes of employees toward monitoring and surveillance. The result is a wake-up call for business owners, managers, and IT staff, as well as an eye-opening dose of reality for employees.

Murphy schauderte, als er einen der Aufzüge in den Dakota Apartments betrat. Dieses Haus hat eine düstere Aura, dachte er. Er sah die Männer und Frauen an, die sich mit ihm zusammen in die enge Kabine gequetscht hatten. Er schwitzte. Seit drei Wochen wohnte er in Apartment 234 D, 12. Stock. Vorgeblich war er ein ganz normaler Mieter. In Wahrheit war er im Auftrag des Ordens vom Weißen Licht hier, der auch das Apartment für ihn angemietet hatte. Ein blassgesichtiger Mann lockerte die Krawatte und stierte Murphy an. Ein Blick von geradezu beunruhigender Intensität... So dunkle Augen, ging es Murphy durch den Kopf. Wie schwarze Löcher mitten in einem Cluster heller Riesensonnen. Murphy glaubte die Anwesenheit magischer Energien zu spüren. Ganz kurz nur. Diese Empfindung dauerte nicht länger als den Bruchteil einer Sekunde. Irgend etwas stimmt nicht mit diesem Mann, dachte Murphy. Er sah Murphy direkt an, verzog das Gesicht und bleckte die Zähne wie ein Raubtier. Seine Augen!, durchzuckte es Murphy. Im nächsten Moment waren sie vollkommen schwarz. Nichts Weißes war mehr in ihnen zu sehen. Ein dumpfes Knurren drang aus seiner Kehle. Ein Laut, wie man ihn kaum einem menschlichen Wesen zuordnen mochte. In dieses Knurren hinein mischten sich Worte. "NATANETA PARANODOR EYET..."

Lincoln's Autocrat

The Life of Edwin Stanton

Edwin M. Stanton (1814-1869), one of the nineteenth century's most impressive legal and political minds, wielded enormous influence and power as Lincoln's Secretary of War during most of the Civil War and under Johnson during the early years of Reconstruction. In the first full biography of Stanton in more than fifty years, William Marvel offers a detailed reexamination of Stanton's life, career, and legacy. Marvel argues that while Stanton was a formidable advocate and politician, his character was hardly benign. Climbing from a difficult youth to the pinnacle of power, Stanton used his authority--and the public coffers--to pursue political vendettas, and he exercised sweeping wartime powers with a cavalier disregard for civil liberties. Though Lincoln's ability to harness a cabinet with sharp divisions and strong personalities is widely celebrated, Marvel suggests that Stanton's tenure raises important questions about Lincoln's actual control over the executive branch. This insightful biography also reveals why men like Ulysses S. Grant considered Stanton a coward and a bully, who was unashamed to use political power for partisan enforcement and personal preservation.

Whether used for aviation, manufacturing, oil and gas extraction, energy distribution, nuclear or fossil fuel power generation, surveillance or security, all control rooms share two common features. The people operating them are often remote from the processes that they are monitoring and controlling and the operations work 24/7. The twin demands of remote and continuous operation place special considerations on the design of central control rooms. Human Factors in the Design and Evaluation of Central Control Room Operations provides an analysis of Human Factors and Ergonomics in this complex area and the implications for control room staff. This information contained within this book can then be used to design, assessed and evaluate control rooms. Taking an integrated approach to Human Factors and Ergonomics in the control room environment, the book presents fourteen human factors topics: competencies, training, procedures, communications, workload, automation, supervision, shift patterns, control room layout, SCADA interfaces, alarms, control room environment, human error, and safety culture. Although there are many resources available on each of these topics, this book the information together under one cover with a focus on central control room operations. Each chapter is self-contained and can be read in any order, as the information is required.

In addition, the book bridges the gap in our knowledge and enhances engineering applications in medicine. This cutting-edge work presents the use of veins as arterial grafts and discusses the role of vein valves in graft stenosis. The book illustrates aneurysm formation, growth, and rupture, using pressure vessel principles. This new work details the investigation of, amongst other topics, aortic dissection, showing for the first time that the aortic root mechanics plays a vital role in the development of this pathology.
