More Details..

Understanding Risk to Wildlife from Exposures to Per- and Polyfluorinated Alkyl Substances (PFAS) provides the most recent summary of toxicity data relevant to mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians and provides values for use in risk assessment applications. Predicting the bioaccumulation of PFAS in terrestrial wildlife (including humans) has proven to be extremely complex. As a group, they act differently than traditional non-ionic organic molecules where they can breakdown and reform, while some are demonstrated to be extremely persistent. Where sufficient data are provided, the book establishes toxicity reference values (TRVs), which are derived to assist in characterizing environmental sources and making risk-based decisions. Features: Provides toxicity reference values (TRVs) for vertebrates (mammals, birds, amphibians) for PFAS where sufficient data are available, and includes objective supporting background information. Assigns a level of confidence to each TRV to provide the risk assessor with an understanding of the relative uncertainty associated with each value. Presents toxicity data through the use of scatter diagrams and in table format for quick review and assessment. Provides values relevant for screening and decision making   This book serves as a useful aid for those industries that have contaminated sites with PFAS, consultants tasked with evaluating risks at those sites, and regulatory agencies at various governmental levels that need to know how much is considered safe for wildlife. It will also appeal to researchers with an interest in filling the current toxicological data gaps for PFAS exposure.

This book is a comprehensive, thematic survey of the history of education throughout the world, from ancient times to the present day. Education in World History analyzes patterns of religious and cultural influence in classical societies, as well as the ways in which conquest, trade and cross-cultural contacts helped to shape educational change in post-classical societies. From Confucius, through to the Greeks and the Egyptians, Mark S. Johnson first takes an integrated look at ancient education, and the development of various education traditions. Considering the ways in which early modern states and religious movements helped to shape ethnic, religious and national identities through increasingly formal institutionalized education, he then examines how colonialism influenced education in the modern era. Finally, the volume goes on to discuss the rise of vocationalism, the decline - in some places - of religious education, and the effects of globalization on education. Suitable for introductory courses and students new to the subject, this concise and lively study reconsiders the history of education from the perspective of world and comparative history.

This book sets out a theoretical framework for thinking about equality as a cultural artefact and process, drawing on work from the GRACE (Gender and Cultures of Equality in Europe) project. In revisiting and reframing conventional questions about in/equality it considers the processes through which in/equalities have come to be regarded as issues of public concern, the various ways that equalities have been historically defined, and how those ideas and imaginings of equalities are produced, embodied, objectified, recognized and contested in and through a variety of cultural practices and sites. Bringing together an international and interdisciplinary group of contributors, the book will be of interest to scholars from across the humanities and social sciences, including anthropology, sociology, and women’s and gender studies.

More Details..

Today's digital economy is uniquely dependent on the Internet, yet few users or decision makers have more than a rudimentary understanding of the myriad of online risks that threaten us. Cyber crime is one of the main threats to the integrity and availability of data and systems. From insiders to complex external attacks and industrial worms, modern business faces unprecedented challenges; and while cyber security and digital intelligence are the necessary responses to this challenge, they are understood by only a tiny minority. In his second book on high-tech risks, Mark Johnson goes far beyond enumerating past cases and summarising legal or regulatory requirements. He describes in plain, non-technical language how cyber crime has evolved and the nature of the very latest threats. He confronts issues that are not addressed by codified rules and practice guidelines, supporting this with over 30 valuable illustrations and tables. Written for the non-technical layman and the high tech risk manager alike, the book also explores countermeasures, penetration testing, best practice principles, cyber conflict and future challenges. A discussion of Web 2.0 risks delves into the very real questions facing policy makers, along with the pros and cons of open source data. In a chapter on Digital Intelligence readers are provided with an exhaustive guide to practical, effective and ethical online investigations. Cyber Crime, Security and Digital Intelligence is an important work of great relevance in today's interconnected world and one that nobody with an interest in either risk or technology should be without.
