Major revelations about the US government's drone program - best-selling author Jeremy Scahill and his colleagues at the investigative website The Intercept expose stunning new details about America's secret assassination policy. When the US government discusses drone strikes publicly, it offers assurances that such operations are a more precise alternative to troops on the ground and are authorized only when an "imminent" threat is present and there is "near certainty" that the intended target will be killed. The implicit message on drone strikes from the Obama administration has been trust, but don't verify. The online magazine The Intercept exploded this secrecy when it obtained a cache of secret slides that provide a window into the inner workings of the US military's kill/capture operations in Afghanistan, Yemen, and Somalia. Whether through the use of drones, night raids, or new platforms yet to be employed, these documents show assassination to be central to US counterterrorism policy. The classified documents reveal that Washington's 14-year targeted killing campaign suffers from an overreliance on flawed signals intelligence, an apparently incalculable civilian toll, and an inability to extract potentially valuable intelligence from terror suspects. This campaign, carried out by two presidents through four presidential terms, has been deliberately obscured from the public and insulated from democratic debate. The Assassination Complex allows us to understand at last the circumstances under which the US government grants itself the right to sentence individuals to death without the established checks and balances of arrest, trial, and appeal. The book includes original contributions from Glenn Greenwald and Edward Snowden.

If you enjoy creepy true tales about ghosts, demons, and the paranormal then this book is for you. This is just the book you were looking for, but never found, at Halloween. An excerpt - To my utter amazement, the windows behind me suddenly rattled and with a loud cracking noise, blew wide open. A rush of air entered the flat, blowing her hair back and scattering the pile of poems all around the room. Her eyes, probably like mine, widened in total shock and awe. Then, the pièce de résistance, the huge paper Leonardo Da Vinci "Last Supper" picture, pinned to the wall with pins, suddenly billowed off from that wall behind her, passed over her head and landed on the coffee table in front of her. It actually flew against the wind from the window to get there. Another - We both watched as the figure turned its head disturbed, stood up and then glided over and out through the wall. Another - Then, the first footstep and creak of the bottom stair. My heart was beating as if to burst. Another long sigh and another step. Another - The figure was now so close to me that I could see its appalling face - a skull with dark eye sockets. This book is a collection of true events - all strange and all are true. When people say that "fact is stranger than fiction" - they aren't joking. My Haunted Life - the first in a creepy three-part series by the host of My Haunted Life Too website, G. Michael Vasey...keep the lights on! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alan Philip Ormond. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/055586/bk_acx0_055586_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

The Power of Rolfing: What Rolfing Structural I...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Ida Rolf, PhD, invented a soft-tissue manipulation technique that not only transforms our physical bodies but can transform our lives. Through the precise releasing of chronic tension stored in the fascial system, a body can rejuvenate. The Power of Rolfing explains the hows and whys in ways that a client (or potential client) can understand. Taking the science and principles of Rolfing structural integration (SI), Owen Marcus weaves an explanation that explains what we often intuitively know but have never had a way to apply. He also dives into what Rolfing SI can and can't do. Owen explains how Rolfing SI excels at turning around issues of stress, structure, and soft tissue. Removing the limits you have is not enough; you need to learn two simple behaviors that will enhance your Rolfing SI and guarantee you permanently integrate those changes. Rolfing SI is no longer for the privileged few. You don't need to be an elite athlete to benefit. Chronic pain or even simply a desire to revitalize an aging body brings more people to Rolfing than ever before. Discover how Rolfing SI could be the best investment you can make. Owen Marcus has been a Rolfer since 1980. Owen ran a holistic medical clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona, for 17 years, where he participated in Rolfing SI research conducted by Arizona State University. His staff of Rolfers, therapists, and physicians assisted Olympic and professional athletes. Owen developed a straightforward approach to creating the most change in the shortest time possible. Owen's passion for helping others through Rolfing SI came from his own experience: After being Rolfed himself, he was an inch taller and had lost 15 pounds of tense, overworked fascia. All those beliefs about how we are stuck with the bodies we inherit went out the window. He continues to enjoy practicing Rolfing SI in Sandpoint, Idaho. His website, align.org, is a leading resource on Rolfing SI. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Lofbomm. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/065099/bk_acx0_065099_sample.mp3.

If It's a Choice, My Zygote Chose Balls: Making...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Jeremy Hooper is known for blending passion and wit, making the case for LGBT equality worldwide. In If It's a Choice, My Zygote Chose Balls: Making Sense of Senseless Controversy, Jeremy continues that style, blending a unique mix of memoir and social commentary that argues for equal rights based on relatable human principles. Hooper leads readers through his own life story, revealing the positive and unnecessarily encumbered aspects of growing up gay in contemporary society. The noted author and activist writes in a sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, but always sharply informed style, opening a window into the realities of family rejection and acceptance. Whether offering direct guidance for would-be straight allies or sharing the inner monologue of a boy who knew who he was long before early adulthood would allow him to own it, Hooper provides a wealth of insight and argument to push the equality conversation forward. As someone who spends 10 to 12 daily hours slogging through the "culture war" for his celebrated website, Jeremy Hooper knows better than anyone how far the LGBT community still has to go in order to obtain full equality. At the same time, his focused lens led him to believe that some of the usual LGBT activism has isolated the fight and stories, leaving much of the continued struggle to go unrealized by the population at large. So Hooper's answer is to present relatable tales that are just as proactive in changing hearts and minds as any textbook gay rights treatment, but doing so in a package that pops with universal heart and wit. Hooper calls out the "B.S." for what it is, while keeping an equal focus on uniting folks from all walks of life for the common causes of peace, equality, acceptance, and, ironically enough - family values. All of this while remembering to keep his tongue in or around the cheek region. Written to engage and entertain, as well as inspire further discussion and action, th 1. Language: English.

A Spotter's Guide to Toilets
9,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Loos with incredible views, lavish lavatories, outstanding outhouses - all are featured in this pictorial guide to the world's most stunning toilets. Whether they're high-tech or arty, amusing or amazing, each toilet has a photo and a description of its location. More than 100 restrooms to remember are featured, from Antarctica to Zambia. As any experienced traveller knows, you can tell a whole lot about a place by its bathrooms. Whatever you prefer to call them - lavatory, loo, bog, khasi, thunderbox, dunny, bathroom, restroom, washroom or water closet - toilets are a (sometimes opaque, often wide-open) window into the secret soul of a destination. It's not just how well they're looked after that's revealing, but where they are positioned and the way they've been conceptualised, designed and decorated. Toilets so often transcend their primary function of being a convenience to become a work of art in their own right, or to make a cultural statement about the priorities, traditions and values of the venues, locations and communities they serve. The lavatory is a great leveller - everyone feels the call of nature, every day - but being ubiquitous doesn't make it uniform. Around the planet (and beyond it, see page 12), toilets have followed various evolutionary pathways to best suit their environment. In these pages you'll find porcelain pews with fantastic views, audacious attention-seeking urban outhouses, and eco-thrones made from sticks and stones in all sorts of wild settings, from precipitous mountain peaks to dusty deserts. So, wherever you're reading this, we hope you're sitting comfortably.

Global Marketing
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The World has become so much smaller than it was in the middle of the 20th century that the distinction between "domestic" and "international" marketing has become irrelevant. No practitioner of marketing who has a website whether a veteran or a new graduate- is sheltered from becoming "global" by virtue of the appropriately called World-Wide Web. A Home Page is a window open to everybody, anywhere. The Web is the culmination of a process of rapid advances in worldwide communication and transportation. Academias, authors and businesses are rushing to prepare the 21st century marketers to handle the technological aspects of this revolution. Few, however, are addressing the fact that the discipline of Marketing itself, as it used to be taught (The Marketing Mix, a.k.a "The Four P s", etc.), needs to change to reflect that going "global" adds a new dimension which elements change in every country or market and are totally outside the control of the marketer (Economy, Geography, Culture and the Law), hence this book s theme ("Two-Dimensional Marketing").

Improvement of MX-CIF Quadtree
32,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

When performing a search with MX-CIF quadtree, all the objects in the nodes which intersect a search-window will be taken as primary results, and then relations between the primary results and search-window are judged by an exact query. The amount of primary results is an important factor to affect time cost of query. This monograph inspected the advantages and drawbacks of the original MX-CIF quadtree compared with other structures, and proposed an improved MX-CIF quadtree which reduces the time cost of query by decreasing the number of the primary results in planar environment. The performance between MX-CIF quadtree and our structure in the ways of index, update, query, and memory usage are compared by benchmark tests. All the programs and datasets of the experiments proposed in this book are disclosed on our website, which also encompasses MyEclipse workspace for practical further developments of your own in easy reproduction. We believe this monograph will be your practical concise companion handbook with respect to spatial indexing in dynamic environments.
