KILLER T is a synthetic virus with a 90 percent mortality rate, and the terrorists who created it want a billion dollars before they'll release a vaccine. Terrifying. Romantic. Huge in scope. KILLER T is a story for our times. Harry and Charlie are teenagers whose lives are shaped by a society that's shifting around them. He is a lonely Brit in his first term at a Las Vegas high school. She is an unlikely friend who gets accused of mixing a batch of explosives that blew up a football player.The two of them are drawn together at a time when gene editing technology is starting to explode. With a lab in the garage anyone can beat cancer, enhance their brain to pass exams or tweak a few genes for that year-round tan and perfect beach body. But in the wrong hands, cheap gene editing is the most deadly weapon in history. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Sims.

The conference is a forum for researchers and practitioners working on various aspects of integer programming and combinatorial optimization. The aim is to present recent developments in theory, computation, and applications in these areas. The scope of IPCO is viewed in a broad sense, to include algorithmic and structural results in integer programming and combinatorial optimization as well as revealing computational studies and novel applications of discrete optimization to practical problems.
Master's Thesis from the year 2004 in the subject Health Science, grade: sehr gut, University of Bonn (Mathematisch-Naturwissenschaftliche Fakultät), 116 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Malaria as a disease of the poorest in the world is on the global agenda. Many different groups take efforts in order to tackle malaria. Facing the fact that mainly children and pregnant women present the biggest problems it is difficult to maintain a logical way in order to improve the malaria situation. Therefore, organization and coordination of the efforts is an area of improvement. For example, various Public Private Partnerships have partly identical missions (e.g. GAVI and MVI), and there is good reason for combining their efforts and save administrative resources. The first step in a logic chain should be to provide better diagnostic features for the correct detection of malaria with the consequence of an adequate treatment. Country surveillance programs need to be set up in order follow resistance patterns, treatment effects, demographic patterns etc. In parallel better therapeutic and preventive measures need to be developed in order to win the race against resistance of vectors as well as parasites. All these efforts need to be planned, coordinated, managed and regulated. This requests one global coordinator with an 'umbrella function' that defines rules for all partners involved and manages the cooperation. The umbrella function should sit within a non-profit organization with long-term experience in the field, in other words the UN and more precisely the WHO. Cooperating partners can be of very different origins like industry, governments, private and public foundations, NGOs, etc. Many of these organizations already exist, but their efforts are partly the same, some themes are left out the scope. Therefore, the general recommendation would be to better streamline existing initiatives, partly redefine their mission and vision and make optimal use of existing resources.
Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Computer Science - Commercial Information Technology, grade: 2.0, University of Applied Sciences Bonn-Rhein-Sieg ; Rheinbach, language: English, abstract: Cloud computing is gaining importance in the industry and specially within small and medium-sized companies due to the many benefits in terms of cost savings, faster time to market, scalability, cost flexibility and optimization of resources. Today, cloud computing is considered as the next IT revolution and the number of articles, books, papers and technical reports flood the literature. Within the scope of this master thesis, relevant cloud computing applications for small- and medium- sized companies are identified and the key success factors for adoption of cloud computing services are analyzed based on the empirical investigation performed as part of this work. Finally, the benefits and constraints of the different cloud computing service models are presented including also the state-of-the-art research in the cloud computing area and a summary of the most important results.
Master's Thesis from the year 2003 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: German Foreign Policy, grade: 8 (of 10), University of Amsterdam (FMG), 15 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: If we look back at more than a decade of united Germany's foreign policy, there seems to be a shift away from the former military `culture of restraint`. Throughout the 1990s, German troops have been increasingly deployed in military operations `out of area` and for the first time since the Second World War participated in combat missions in the Kosovo War in 1999. Consequently, the 'FRG has read the signs of the new time and feels ready to take on the role of a European power'. Has the reunited country actually gained power? Has the removal of the last boundaries of German sovereignty triggered a quest for more political autonomy that manifests itself in an increased military activity? Does this comparatively more `permissive` use of force indicate a fundamental shift away from former traditional principles of the Bonn Republic? Or does the Berlin Republic head toward a militarized German foreign policy in the context of Euro-Atlantic hegemony? It is Germany's security policy as a cornerstone of foreign policy that I am going to examine between 1990 and 2003 to be able to make some inferences of foreign policy changes. Secondly, by looking of some factors that might have had an impact on these eventual changes one might additionally gain some further implications. The aim of this thesis is therefore twofold: I intend to contribute with this work to the debate whether since reunification change or continuity prevails in German foreign policy, while I additionally attempt a causal analyses of new elements in it. The scope of that debate will be in so far enhanced as it tries to generate causal inferences as well.
Bachelor Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 2,0, International University of Applied Sciences Bad Honnef - Bonn, language: English, abstract: The comprehensive application of human resource controlling (HRC) instruments for measuring the contribution of human resource management (HRM) to corporate success is already fully implemented in larger corporations. In small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), however, HRC is predominantly insufficiently used. Knowing that, the research focused on components and possible approaches for HRC in SMEs. The research methodology combines the evaluation of relevant academic literature and primary data uncovered out of four expert interviews. The collected data revealed that the application of the controlling process which contains goal definition, performance measurement and comparison, variance analysis and corrective actions can enhance effectiveness and efficiency of HRM activities. Accordingly, an integrated HRC requires instruments which are operational and strategically aligned, relevant, goal and future oriented. Assessing the impact of HRM activities, possible controlling instruments are the balanced scorecard with its learning and growth perspective mainly important for HRM and the human resource scorecard (HRSC) which evaluates HRM activities in the scope of value creation for workforce success. Related measurements are, for instance, the audit and analytical approach, the full-time equivalent, the human resource portfolio and applications out of human capital management. Having compared HRC in larger corporations and SMEs, the research concludes that possible approaches for HRC should be implemented by executing a project and for further improvement of already existing HRC systems the introduction of a HRSC might be appropriate. Finally, HRC in SMEs should be based on an integrated HRM in order to evaluate and control HR activities operationally and strategically. Key words: Human resource management, HR-Controlling, Small and medium-sized enterprises
The editors and authors dedicate this book to Bernhard Korte on the occasion of his seventieth birthday. We, the editors, are happy about the overwhelming feedback to our initiative to honor him with this book and with a workshop in Bonn on November 3&#8211;7,2008.Althoughthiswouldbeareasontolookback,wewouldratherliketolook forward and see what are the interesting research directions today. This book is written by leading experts in combinatorial optimization. All - pers were carefully reviewed, and eventually twenty-three of the invited papers were accepted for this book. The breadth of topics is typical for the eld: combinatorial optimization builds bridges between areas like combinatorics and graph theory, submodular functions and matroids, network ows and connectivity, approximation algorithms and mat- matical programming, computational geometry and polyhedral combinatorics. All these topics are related, and they are all addressed in this book. Combi- torial optimization is also known for its numerous applications. To limit the scope, however, this book is not primarily about applications, although some are mentioned at various places. Most papers in this volume are surveys that provide an excellent overview of an activeresearcharea,butthisbookalsocontainsmanynewresults.Highlightingmany of the currently most interesting research directions in combinatorial optimization, we hope that this book constitutes a good basis for future research in these areas.
Magisterial in scope and scrupulous in its investigation and attribution of sources, Church and Ethical Responsibility in the Midst of World Economy will take its place as an important document that contributes much in terms of prophetic praxis--it challenges those who are comfortably complacent and unwilling to be disturbed. ''This book is minjung theology gone global! It is wise, rich, complex, amazingly learned, and passionate in its call for a prophetic Christian approach to global economics.'' --Stephen Bevans, Professor of Mission and Culture, Catholic Theological Union ''Chung provides the reader not only with an overview of Christian thought on capitalism, but also with a lively explication of and conversation with more than a century of secular political and economic perspectives on capitalism. Helpfully, Chung also broadens the religious contributions beyond Christianity, including Confucianism, Daoism, and Buddhism in the conversation. Students of social ethics, pastors, teachers, and laypeople will all benefit from this informed and timely book.'' --Heidi Hadsel, President and Professor of Social Ethics, Hartford Seminary ''Chung creatively constructs a usable theological tradition to challenge the assumption of the economic status quo as our inevitable future, integrating interreligious and cross-disciplinary resources in the struggle. How can the ecumenical church serve as leaven for imagining and implementing alternatives to global business as usual?'' --Craig L. Nessan, Academic Dean and Professor of Contextual Theology, Wartburg Theological Seminary ''In a situation characterized by global crisis and increasing injustice of the world economy, Chung analyzes the responsibility of the church in the development of modern capitalism. At the same time he describes critical potential within the biblical tradition to enable the church's protest against an unjust world economy. The book represents an important and well-informed contribution to a critique of global capitalism from the perspective of postcolonial theology and economic theory.'' --Andreas Pangritz, Professor of Systematic Theology and Director of the Ecumenical Institute, University of Bonn, Germany ''Challenging shallow sloganeering and simplistic and superficial analysis, Chung offers in this thoughtful and thought-provoking work a serious and sustained investigation of the underpinning and overarching economic structures that are an indispensable part of the world in which we live, a world in which we are constantly impacted by these realities. This is a work that is addressed not only to those who are part of the institution that is called the church, but to all those who are willing to pay heed to, and be transformed by, a movement that was called into being by one who paid with his life for his stance against greed, dominion, and the lack of justice.'' --Rev. Dr. J. Jayakiran Sebastian Dean of the Seminary and H. George Anderson Professor of Mission and Cultures at The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia Paul S. Chung is Associate Professor at Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota. His books related to a prophetic theology of God's mission, transcultural hermeneutics, and justice in the public sphere include The Cave and the Butterfly (2010) and Liberating Lutheran Theology (together with Ulrich Duchrow and Craig L. Nessan, 2011), among others.
