Matty ist zurück! Der Eiskunstläufer Matty Marcus hat kein olympisches Gold errungen, aber er hat das Herz von Rancher Rob Lovely gewonnen. Nachdem Rob seine Ranch verkauft und Matty seine Schlittschuhe an den Nagel gehängt hat, haben die beiden ein neues Leben in New York City begonnen. Jetzt hat Matty eine neue Herausforderung als Eiskunstlauftrainer angenommen und Robs zweite Karriere als Physiotherapeut sollte alles sein, wovon er geträumt hat. Aber in der brutalen Hitze ihres dritten Sommers in der Stadt sehnt sich Rob nach dem weiten, offenen Land, und die Intensität des Stadtlebens erweckt Mattys Dämonen. Matty fordert immer intensivere BDSM-Szenen, während Rob darum kämpft, die Kontrolle zu behalten. Aber der Großstadtdschungel erdrückt ihn und seine Bewältigungsstrategien lösen sich auf. Ihre Liebe ist tief, aber Rob wird zugeben müssen, was er wirklich will, bevor sie beide ins Chaos stürzen.

With the contributions from leading national and international scholars and practitioners, this volume provides a "state-of-the-art" look at ID, addressing the major changes that have occurred in nearly every aspect of ID in the past decade and provides both theory and "how-to" information for ID and performance improvement practitioners practitioners who must stay current in their field. This volume goes beyond other ID references in its approach: it is useful to students and practitioners at all levels; it is grounded in the most current research and theory; and it provides up-to-the-minute coverage of topics not found in any other ID book. It addresses timely topics such as cognitive task analysis, instructional strategies based on cognitive research, data collection methods, games, higher-order problem-solving and expertise, psychomotor learning, project management, partnering with clients, and managing a training function. It also provides a new way of looking at what ID is, and the most comprehensive history of ID ever published. Sponsored by International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI), the Handbook of Improving Performance in the Workplace, three-volume reference, covers three core areas of interest including Instructional Design and Training Delivery, Selecting and Implementing Performance Interventions, and Measurement and Evaluation.

Since the attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, there have been dramatic changes in homeland security theory, policy, and practice. Widely available chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, high yield explosive, and cyberspace security materials, technologies, and equipment often have dual uses. Preventing rogue states and terrorist organizations from acquiring these materials is a necessary but formidable challenge. Additionally, the cyber domain has grown tremendously and may be used to target key infrastructure and resources. In addition to these threats, dramatic weather changes have caused unusual and devastating shifts in weather patterns, which in turn have triggered catastrophic events. The establishment of All-Hazard Training Centers in the 10 Federal Emergency Management Agency regions to train civil support team weapons of mass destruction emergency responders for chemical, biological radiological, nuclear, explosive, and cyberspace events or natural catastrophes are becoming a necessity in light of these threats.This paper proposes establishment of All-Hazard Training Centers (AHTC) in the 10 Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regions to train CST and WMD emergency responder for CBRNE-C events or natural catastrophes.

A mind-boggling investigation of the allpervasive, constantly morphing presence of the Pentagon in daily life—a real-world Matrix come alive Here is the new, hip, high-tech military-industrial complex—an omnipresent, hidden-in-plain-sight system of systems that penetrates all our lives. From iPods to Starbucks to Oakley sunglasses, historian Nick Turse explores the Pentagon's little-noticed contacts (and contracts) with the products and companies that now form the fabric of America. Turse investigates the remarkable range of military incursions into the civilian world: the Pentagon's collaborations with Hollywood filmmakers; its outlandish schemes to weaponize the wild kingdom; its joint ventures with the World Wrestling Federation and NASCAR. He shows the inventive ways the military, desperate for new recruits, now targets children and young adults, tapping into the "culture of cool" by making "friends" on MySpace. A striking vision of this brave new world of remote-controlled rats and super-soldiers who need no sleep, The Complex will change our understanding of the militarization of America. We are a long way from Eisenhower's military-industrial complex: this is the essential book for understanding its twenty-first-century progeny.

Der unbestreitbar talentierte Eiskunstläufer Matty Marcus ist willens, alles für seinen olympischen Traum zu opfern, aber sein Mangel an Disziplin hat ihn schon einmal Gold gekostet. Jetzt steht er unter Druck. Er braucht einen Trainer, der ihn bei der Stange halten kann, aber gute Trainer sind nicht billig und Matty kann es sich nicht leisten, im Spiel zu bleiben, ganz egal, wie unbedingt er gewinnen will. Als ein lukrativer Job als Housesitter ihn ins ländliche Montana führt, tut Matty sein Bestes, um seinen Trainingsplan aufrechtzuerhalten. Die Ortsansässigen sind überraschend tolerant, was seinen exzentrischen Stil betrifft. Vor allem der gutaussehende junge Rancher Rob Lovely, der sehr viel mehr als ein typischer Cowboy ist. So wie Matty eine starke Hand braucht, damit er auf dem Eis sein Bestes gibt, zeigt Rob ihm, wie stark er sein kann, wenn er im Bett die Kontrolle aufgibt. Mit neugefundenem Selbstbewusstsein trainiert er noch härter, um an die Spitze zu kommen. Aber der Wettkampf läuft nach einem Zeitplan und um seinen olympischen Traum zu verwirklichen, muss Matty zu seinem neuen Trainer nach New York City gehen und Rob zurücklassen. Jetzt sieht er sich dem ultimativen Test gegenüber. Hat er während seiner Trainingssaison wirklich gelernt, wie man gewinnt – auf dem Eis und im Leben?

From the Foreword: The following account represents a significant look at a half century of U.S. Marine Corps effort in the Sierra Nevada mountain range of California. This has been and is still the location of the Corps cold weather and mountain training facility. Over time the needs and demands for Marines and units prepared to operate under these conditions waxed and waned with the real world requirements of deployed forces. This was reflected in the realities of conflicts in the Korean Peninsula, the Cold War's northern and southern flanks, and in the current Global War in Terrorism fight in Afghanistan and elsewhere. While the future is often uncertain, this firm look at the past is useful to show how previous challenges have prompted creative and innovative responses. This is as much a story of evolution as an institution.--p. iii.

Many complex systems in civil and military operations are highly automated with the intention of supporting human performance in difficult cognitive tasks. The complex systems can involve teams or individuals working on real-time supervisory control, command or information management tasks where a number of constraints must be satisfied. Decision Making in Complex Environments addresses the role of the human, the technology and the processes in complex socio-technical and technological systems. The aim of the book is to apply a multi-disciplinary perspective to the examination of the human factors in complex decision making. It contains more than 30 contributions on key subjects such as military human factors, team decision making issues, situation awareness, and technology support. In addition to the major application area of military human factors there are chapters on business, medical, governmental and aeronautical decision making. The book provides a unique blend of expertise from psychology, human factors, industry, commercial environments, the military, computer science, organizational psychology and training that should be valuable to academics and practitioners alike.
