Book Summary: This book analyses the possibilities and limitations that sub-national actors face when developing diplomatic activities in the Arctic region. Sub-national actors, such as civil society groups and sub-national governments or administrations, have been active in international relations for decades. They face specific political and economic limitations on the international scene as non-sovereign entities. This book investigates how these actors have developed their international presence in the Arctic region. It analyzes the diplomatic activities of states, provinces, regional administrations, and multilateral forums made of sub-national governments to offer comparative insights on the strategies, interests, and activities of sub-national governments. Alaska, Scotland, Quebec, Yakutsk, and Indigenous People’s organizations are among the examples covered in this book that have forged bilateral and multilateral relations to promote and defend their interests and values. Moreover, sovereign states are often using these sub-national actors to further their own interests, as exemplified in this book in how Russia and China harnessed the potential of sub-national governments to align with their Arctic policies. The volume will be useful to academics and graduate students of Arctic politics, international relations, comparative politics, comparative federalism, foreign policy, and global governance.

Book Summary: During the past decade there has been an explosion in computation and information technology. With it have come vast amounts of data in a variety of fields such as medicine, biology, finance, and marketing. The challenge of understanding these data has led to the development of new tools in the field of statistics, and spawned new areas such as data mining, machine learning, and bioinformatics. Many of these tools have common underpinnings but are often expressed with different terminology. This book describes the important ideas in these areas in a common conceptual framework. While the approach is statistical, the emphasis is on concepts rather than mathematics. Many examples are given, with a liberal use of color graphics. It should be a valuable resource for statisticians and anyone interested in data mining in science or industry. The book’s coverage is broad, from supervised learning (prediction) to unsupervised learning. The many topics include neural networks, support vector machines, classification trees and boosting---the first comprehensive treatment of this topic in any book. This major new edition features many topics not covered in the original, including graphical models, random forests, ensemble methods, least angle regression & path algorithms for the lasso, non-negative matrix factorization, and spectral clustering. There is also a chapter on methods for “wide” data (p bigger than n), including multiple testing and false discovery rates. Trevor Hastie, Robert Tibshirani, and Jerome Friedman are professors of statistics at Stanford University. They are prominent researchers in this area: Hastie and Tibshirani developed generalized additive models and wrote a popular book of that title. Hastie co-developed much of the statistical modeling software and environment in R/S-PLUS and invented principal curves and surfaces. Tibshirani proposed the lasso and is co-author of the very successful An Introduction to the Bootstrap. Friedman is the co-inventor of many data-mining tools including CART, MARS, projection pursuit and gradient boosting.

Militant Democracy

Category : Political Science

Book Summary: This book aims to present a comprehensive theory of militant democracy and to answer questions such as: How can a democracy protect itself against its own downfall? And when is intervention against antidemocrats justified? Against the backdrop of historical and current examples, this book examines a variety of theories from philosophers and legal scholars such as Karl Loewenstein, Karl Popper and Carl Schmitt as well as contemporary alternatives. It compares their interpretations of democracy and militant democracy, discusses how helpful these references are, and introduces two largely forgotten theorists to the militant democracy debate: George van den Bergh and Milan Markovitch. Militant Democracy then sets out to build a novel theory of democratic self-defence on the basis of democracy’s capacity for self-correction. In doing so, it addresses the more classic and current criticisms of the concept, while paying specific attention to the position of the judge, the legal design and effectiveness of party bans, and the national and supranational procedural safeguards that can safeguard the careful application of militant democracy instruments. Militant Democracy seamlessly combines political philosophy, political science and constitutional law to offer a new perspective on democratic self-defence. This book is essential reading for scholars and students of political theory, jurisprudence, democracy, extremism and the history of ideas.

Book Summary: Secret societies have both fascinated and frightened people for hundreds of years. Often the infamous Illuminati is mentioned as the core of conspiracies which span the globe. The Illuminati is actually a historical secret society which had goals of revolutions and world domination dating back to the 1770s. Since then, rumors and conspiracy theories involving the Illuminati continue to spread, sometimes finding their way into popular novels like Dan Brown's Angels & Demons and Hollywood movies like Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. Some men have even come forward claiming to be former members, offering details of what they allege are the inner workings of the organization. When you sift through all of the information available on the subject, you may be surprised that the truth is stranger than fiction. In The Illuminati: Facts & Fiction, conspiracy and occult expert Mark Dice separates history from Hollywood and shows why tales of the secret society won't die. - Original Writings and Documents - Purported Texts - Freemasonry's Connections - The Georgia Guidestones - Alleged Victims and Defectors - Aliens and Reptillians - Activists and Eyewitnesses - Fictional books - Fictional films - TV references - The Music Industry - Mainstream Media Manipulation - Documentary Films - Pre Illuminati Organizations - The Luciferian Doctrine - The Federal Reserve - Skull and Bones - The Bilderberg Group - Bohemian Grove - The Council on Foreign Relations - The Franklin Cover-up - Sex Magic - Election Fraud - The Necronomicon - The Church of Satan - The Secret Doctrine - Emerald Tablet - The Book of Thoth - The Book of Dzyan - The Report From Iron Mountain - Protocols of the Elders of Zion - The Holy Grail - MK-ULTRA Documents - The Satanic Bible - The Secret Doctrine - David Rockefeller's Memoirs - Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism - Secret Societies and Subversive Movements - Occult Theocrasy - Externalization of the Hierarchy - None Dare Call It Conspiracy - Magick: In Theory and Practice - Bloodlines of the Illuminati - The Lexicon of Freemasonry - Morals and Dogma - The Secret Teachings of All Ages - Myron Fagan - Edith Miller - Gary Allen - Abbe Barruel - Nesta Webster - Anthony J.

Book Summary: “An important work for anyone interested in warship design, the naval side of World War II in the Mediterranean, or modern Italian history.”—New York Military Affairs Symposium For its final battleship design Italy ignored all treaty restrictions on tonnage and produced one of Europe’s largest and most powerful capital ships, comparable with Germany’s Bismarck class, similarly built in defiance of international agreements. The three ships of the Littorio class were typical of Italian design, being fast and elegant, but also boasting a revolutionary protective scheme—which was tested to the limits, as all three were to be heavily damaged in the hard-fought naval war in the Mediterranean; Roma had the unfortunate distinction of being the first capital ship sunk by guided missile. These important ships have never been covered in depth in English-language publications, but the need is now satisfied in this comprehensive and convincing study by two of Italy’s leading naval historians. The book combines a detailed analysis of the design with an operational history, evaluating how the ships stood up to combat. It is illustrated with an amazing collection of photographs, many fine-line plans, and colored artwork of camouflage schemes, adding up to as complete a monograph on a single class ever published. Among warship enthusiasts, battleships enjoy a unique status. As the great success of Seaforth’s recent book on French battleships proves, that interest transcends national boundaries, and this superbly executed study is certain to become another classic in the field. “A very impressive piece of work.”—History of War “An essential book for all naval history enthusiasts.”—Firetrench

Book Summary: For many years, I have pondered who these symbolic creatures are and this Harlot & Mother of Harlots were in the book of Revelation, and for some time I must confess, I thought the same as many that the Pope was the Beast. However, the Pope for the Beast just did not fit right with me from a financial aspect. To me the Pope certainly fitted the bill on a religious point of view and financially from the history of selling “apostles” bones and the various books that talked about the history of the Pope’s and the Roman church as a whole. Catholic so I found out means universal, Therefore the Roman Catholic Church is really the Roman Universal Church. Every time one says Catholic Church, they are saying Universal Church and therefore one should address the Catholic Church as the Roman Catholic Church. As I moved on in life and become an insurance advisor, financial planner then “stockbroker” and in Christian life the whole financial system was the beast including the Roman Catholic Church at least in part. Why I say in part is because I believe that John 3 v16 is true, which reads “God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever should believe, would not perish but receive everlasting life” Barry & Austin Gumm 11 | P a g e Introduction Now that is quite a deal, just believe – trust and obey and you get to live forever without pain, sickness and sorrow. Cannot buy it, cannot give it, cannot own it, cannot work for it, just believe, trust and obey and it yours no matter what you done in the past. What an incredible deal! Still I wanted to know what these signs meant, and have done for 32 years. Then in the last couple of weeks from around 1st May 2014 to mid-2014 it all came together for me in just two weeks. God showed to me, lead me to places on the Internet some of which I had physically been to, and seen when I was just 9 or 10 years old. I can still remember seeing the Beast’s / Harlots Cup when I was aged just 9 years old, on display in the London Museum and thinking why would you make or drink out of a cup that large? I was just nine so the Cup looked enormous to me. Off course the answer came some 41 to 42 years later, if you are going to cause that much hurt and harm to people you need a large cup and constantly refill it. This is another book I am incredible appreciative that the Lord God of Heaven and Earth and the ones to come should choose me.. In fact one could have known most of what Revelation 17 was talking about in full from 1954! Why has so many missed the Beast’s cup described in Revelation 17 including myself for so long……. I mean millions of people have seen it yet it is almost impossible to find one talking and unveiling it as it were to the world. Why have millions of people and probably tens of Thousands of Priests and pastors missed it? I do not have the answer maybe it has something to do with the words on the placard that says “Royal Cup” and they discounted the Images Gold and Pearls and did not compare to Revelation 17. One of the Images on the Cup is a Beast! If I had lived in England past the age of 11 and become Born Again, I would have gone and found it a lot earlier, but never mind it is being declared to the world now. This book is going to cover a lot aspects mentioned in the book of Revelation. It will cover at least in part, some of the other books and scriptures as well. What I am not going to do is what most other Christian writers have done and that is “prove” their thoughts by quoting other scriptures, which may seem to relate but quite often do not. Having said that I think there is one scripture that I may actually do that in this book. As I improved the introduction on the 21st June 2014, I brought a book at Lifehouse Church Coffs Harbour and devoured the book 250 pages in 2.5 hours I took it back and said I would pay for it as I had read it. What I read for the first 155 pages was confusion I felt like throwing it in the bin! It was a New York best seller! Not Lifehouse fault at all the writer was from the USA, Life house just had it in their book shop. The chap that wrote tried to prove his view with scriptures backing up scriptures. How let me ask you a question and let’s say you have a analytical personality and you are trying to access God is real. You read a scripture, then another to back that up that sort of fits and then another to back up the last one, then another that backs up that one, but then you end up where you started. How do you know what is True? And that is what this book was like. Then I thought about it, well I be around for 32 years, so this book may be alright for a person who has not been saved for as long as I have. Then I remembered the words someone told me you have to read multiple books that have different views have a complete understanding. Sound's logical. Then comes the question well how many to prove what? In the financial markets I discovered the No:1 Top Secret and I can mathematically calculate a projection, a future price with a greater accuracy than 99.????%. Yes I measure it to the forth decimal point! Something I have not seen anyone do except those who have read my books! Not one broker advertises his success rate. And for good reason they do not know the mathematical truth in the markets as related to what God has Created. Now if I can do that with the Law of Vibration and Harmony on the financial markets (anyone) then why can I not do that with God and his Universe and more to the point his mathematical Musical Clock called our Solar System? I can and you will see me prove it in this book. I mean God wrote the book of Numbers, God’s Word the Holy Bible has been proven mathematically true by Ivan Panin and his Bible Numerics.1 Then off course there is Bible Code that is said to unveil mathematical secrets (words and names) hidden numerically in the words of the Bible2 1 2 Now if those things are true why quote scripture on scripture on scripture and end up with a book that is not proven mathematically and just end up with a lot of quotes, for some this is enough and certainly the best way to approach God is to ask him However either straight away or later it is nice to have proof. Now God gives proof personally, just ask him and he will prove himself to you. However that is not the subject of this book, but rather, a look at Revelations and prove the scriptures TRUE with simple mathematics of the Solar System. After all God said Genesis 1 V14 KJV And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves. Luke 21 v 25 ESV Now God has made them for signs, in the Sun, Moon and Stars. Now God has made them for signs, what signs, how can we use them? The Solar System has been there since Genesis chapter one.Let’s think about that for thousands of years the planets of our Solar System have been going around the Sun and around the Earth (all but three) which are the Sun, Mercury and Venus and are perfectly ordered. Therefore they have to comply with the mathematics that God has used to order their way as it were. He could not have them bumping into earth could you imagine if Jupiter hit earth, bang everyone wiped out. NO God set them in cycles that were mathematically correct! Therefore the mathematics of the Solar System are far better to use for past present and future signs than any man made calendar. Farmers today in 2014 still use the seasons and moons to plant crops, fisherman on fish on certain moons and so on.3 Therefore in this book everything where possible is backed up and proven and future events to come are mathematically analysed. Why Mathematically? Well numbers do not lie. There are a few different calendars that you can go by, but the mathematics of God’s Musical Clock our Solar System cannot be altered or changed in any way unless God changes them! 3 Which he has done twice, once with Joshua4 and once with King Hezekiah5. AND with Hezekiah the Sun went backwards 10 steps or 10 degrees. God has made a wonderful orchestrated clock for use to use and verify events in the past, present and future. Another reason I like this method so much is said so beautifully by a Scottish Physicist Lord Kelvin back in 1883. 6I often say that when you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely, in your thoughts, advanced to the stage of science, whatever the matter may be. I just love that quote, God has many numbers in his Holy Bible and every Number and Cycle can be found in the Solar System. Including 144 and 153 fishes.

International Arbitration in Switzerland

Book Summary: A convenient, neutral location, with a long-standing tradition of arbitration, arbitration-friendly legislation, arbitration-supportive courts, and an exemplary infrastructure – for all of these reasons, parties often choose Switzerland as their preferred seat of arbitration. Switzerland continues to therefore play a leading role in the field of arbitration. This book, since its first edition in 2004, has been widely used as a peerless practitioners’ guide to international arbitration in Switzerland. Keeping in line with the first edition, this second edition describes in detail each phase of arbitral proceedings, from drafting the arbitration clause to challenge and enforcement of the award. The second edition continues to pay close attention to all aspects, including procedure before the arbitral tribunal, interim measures, confidentiality, the mediation alternative, and many other topics. The new edition has been extensively revised to take fully into account the newly amended Swiss Rules of International Arbitration, as well as numerous changes internationally, such as the revised ICC Rules and the revised UNCITRAL Rules. Many new decisions of the Swiss Federal Tribunal relating to arbitration are also considered, as is legal commentary. The second edition also features a chart comparing major institutional arbitration rules on all aspects of the arbitral process covered by those rules. There are also two entirely new chapters – one on the legislative framework of Swiss arbitration law, and one addressing costs of arbitration. The approach throughout is rigorously practice-oriented, adding theoretical support whenever necessary. With the help of this book, practitioners will proceed confidently as they approach such tasks as the following: drafting an effective arbitration clause and choosing between ad hoc and institutional arbitration; understanding the manner in which arbitral proceedings can be structured and evaluating what is best suited to their needs; weighing the possibilities of interim relief at their disposal; anticipating the duration and costs of proceedings; and assessing post-award options. Whilst focusing on the latest developments in international commercial arbitration, International Arbitration in Switzerland includes sections on sports arbitration (with a focus on the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne) and on Swiss-based public international law dispute settlement mechanisms, such as those of the WTO and the UNCC. The book provides useful answers to concrete questions that in-house lawyers, outside counsel, and arbitrators are confronted with when practicing international arbitration in Switzerland. With its wealth of practical expertise and up-to-date information, it will enable foreign in-house and external counsel to make the appropriate choices and decisions. It will be indispensable for all practitioners and academics interested in arbitration in Switzerland.

Book Summary: Det här ingen bok för barn eller känsliga personer. Boken är tänkt för en mogen publik. En mental thriller för hjärnan. "Baksidan" av den här boken, är att alla dess likheter med verkligheten, kan vara en ren tillfällighet... eller? Handlingen ses från insidan, som är baksidan, av de scenarier som anges på framsidan. Dåtid, nutid eller framtid... dikt eller verklighet? Allt i en enda tidlös röra. Med ett - eller fler - budskap. Oljekris - Klimathot - Nytt betalningssystem - Chip - Ny världsordning... Finns det en gemensam nämnare? Vad har dessa i så fall gemensamt? Spelar de ett spel med oss, mot en oviss utgång? Är vi brickor, medspelare eller motspelare, i ett spel som ingen ens vet att det spelas, utom de som styr spelet? Började spelet i vår tid, redan innan vi kunde ana det? Har spelet har gått så långt, att ingen kan stoppa det? Den röda realistiska tråden leder fram till slutet av boken. Men där boken slutar, fortsätter du, in i den verklighet som boken avslöjar. DÄR... är du just nu, mitt i den... Men känner inte till den, vet inte att du är i den... förens du läst boken. Läs den inte! ... eller? Att läsa boken är att stå på ruta ett... och kasta tärningen... "... formidabelt kunnige kritiske tänkaren slår till igen!" Läs" begrunda!, (Bo Edvardsson, Docent; Psykologi).

Book Summary: What happens when digital innovation meets migration? Roaming Africa considers how we understand modern-day mobility in Africa, where age-old routes strengthen the resilience of people roaming the continent for livelihoods and security, assisted by mobile communication. Digital mobility expands connectivity around the world, and also in Africa. In this book, the authors show that mobility, resilience and social protection in the digital age are closely related. Each chapter takes a close look at the migration dynamics in a specific context, using social theory as a lens. This book adopts a critical perspective on approaches in which migration is regarded merely as a hazard. Edited by distinguished scholars from Africa and Europe, this volume, the second in a four-part series Connected and Mobile: Migration and Human Trafficking in Africa, compiles chapters from a diverse group of young and upcoming scholars, making an important contribution to the literature on migration studies, digital science, social protection and governance.
