Library Technology Reports (vol. 48, no. 4) This issue of Library Technology Reports presents an overview of current developments in Semantic Web technology that provide the foundations for making library data accessible on the Semantic Web. Author Karen Coyle introduces basic Semantic Web concepts and then describes the metadata activities and developer tools that are being used to create Semantic Web applications. She points readers to projects within and beyond the library community that are a source of metadata elements and controlled vocabularies. For software developers, she describes available software tools in the nascent world of linked data and the Semantic Web.
The year is 2375 and the world is finally emerging from strife and war to present a unified struggle for peace. Life has returned to normal and once again, technology's focus can move from war and bullets to peace...and pleasure. Sexuality has changed, disease and unwanted pregnancies now controlled. Riding close on the heels of this new sexuality are the B.O.B.s Battery Operated Boyfriends a cybernetic invention created to please and pleasure. Life-size, life-like, the most sensual, most creatively arousing sex toys ever to be created were programmed for sex and were the answer to every woman's or man's dreams. Into this new world of heightened sexuality, erotic romance has re-emerged. Written and led by free-spirited sensualist Elyiana Richards, it has taken the world by storm. But Elyiana, living a contented existence far from the perks of conventional society, never dreamed she would experience a B.O.B., never thought that her greatest fantasy to be touched, to be held by one certain man would ever come true, especially in the way it did. Neither did her nemesis, The MacDougal, leader of Cyber-Tronics, creator of the B.O.B. Full of repressed sexuality and smoldering sensuality, The MacDougal, a man who has closed off his emotions and his needs, now leads the most advanced sexual design ever envisioned by man. But when the man re-awakens, and the BOB sleeps once again, The MacDougal will remember what the BOB discovered that there is nothing more sensual, more sensuous or heated, than love and the arousal that builds from it.

Nie było w Czarnobylu katastrofy elektrowni jądrowej – to legenda rozwinięta przez Rosjan dla przykrycia znacznie mroczniejszej tajemnicy. Zamiast opadu radioaktywnego, na Polskę i Europę spada substancja odwracająca kierunek entropii – i oto z ziemi powstają postaci z coraz głębszych warstw historii Polski.

The U.S. healthcare system is now spending many millions of dollars to improve "patient safety" and "inter-professional practice." Neverthe, an estimated 100,000 patients still succumb to preventable medical errors or infections every year. How can health care providers reduce the terrible financial and human toll of medical errors and injuries that harm rather than heal? Beyond the Checklist argues that lives could be saved and patient care enhanced by adapting the relevant ons of aviation safety and teamwork. In response to a series of human-error caused crashes, the airline industry developed the system of job training and information sharing known as Crew Resource Management (CRM).
Under the new industry-wide system of CRM, pilots, flight attendants, and ground crews now communicate and cooperate in ways that have greatly reduced the hazards of commercial air travel. The coauthors of this book sought out the aviation professionals who made this transformation possible. Beyond the Checklist gives us an inside look at CRM training and shows how airline staff interaction that once suffered from the same dysfunction that too often undermines real teamwork in health care today has dramatically improved. Drawing on the experience of doctors, nurses, medical educators, and administrators, this book demonstrates how CRM can be adapted, more widely and effectively, to health care delivery.
The authors provide case studies of three institutions that have successfully incorporated CRM-like principles into the fabric of their clinical culture by embracing practices that promote common patient safety knowledge and skills.They infuse this study with their own diverse experience and collaborative spirit: Patrick Mendenhall is a commercial airline pilot who teaches CRM; Suzanne Gordon is a nationally known health care journalist, training consultant, and speaker on issues related to nursing; and Bonnie Blair O'Connor is an ethnographer and medical educator who has spent more than two decades observing medical training and teamwork from the inside.
