When Dave Barry goes mano a mano with the Information Superhighway, it's guaranteed to be a rip-roaring adventure. This self-proclaimed computer geek and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist starts with the motto, "Never read the instructions," and slides from there into the world of hardware, software, Windows 95, and the critical issue of RAM ("the bottom line is, if you're a guy, you cannot have enough RAM"). He also shares the wisdom he's gained from forays into cyberspace, including how to use Internet shorthand to chat with total strangers who may be boring and stupid, and a wide selection of very unusual Web sites. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Shadoe Stevens. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/dove/000093/bk_dove_000093_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Queer Online
32,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This collection draws together contemporary research into queer theory and practices, as they intersect with new media and communication technologies. It provides a synthesis of critical debates in these fields followed by empirical analyses of current and historical internet activities. These include, among others, a study of changing leathersex identities as meeting spaces moved from bars to online chat rooms, an investigation of the dynamics of racial identity as social sites moved from text-based to visually-based media and the tensions between community and audience identities inherent in commercial affinity portals. The chapters investigate the relations between the technical, legal and industrial organization of online media and the queer practices that they facilitate. While scholarly and theoretically rigorous, its rich empirical detail makes Queer Online vital reading for activists and members of queer communities, in the academy and beyond.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The text is fully annotated and includes a separate table of contents for the novel to assist readers in locating specific episodes or passages. Hardy's hand-drawn map of Wessex and the manuscript title page for the first edition of his novel are also included. Hardy and the Novel includes seven poems by Hardy that provide greater insight into his ethos; selections from Michael Millgate's biography of Hardy that depict the relationship between episodes in Tess of the D'Urbervilles and events in the author's life; and excerpts from Grindle and Gatrell's introduction to the 1983 edition that discuss Hardy's revision process in both manuscripts and early printed editions of the novel. Criticism features three contemporary reviews of the novel not printed in the earlier Norton editions, including the first feminist review of Tess of the D'Urbervilles.

Gose, Jr., Peter R. Morton, and Gillian Beer address Hardy's debt to Charles Darwin, perhaps the single most important influence on Hardy's thought and imagination; Raymond Williams's essay presents a Marxist perspective; and Adrian Poole discusses the significance of Hardy's wisdom concerning "the trouble men's words have with women and the trouble women have with men's words." A Chronology, new to this edition, and a Selected Bibliography are included.

This study started from the question how does learning occur in human life . In particular, I am interested in learning that takes place continuously anywhere at any time rather than learning that is occurred by being taught by others. This study interpreted critical reflection as learning that continuously occur in anywhere at any time i.e. as informal learning, and then analyzed the process how it takes place in human life. To find out how critical reflection occurs, this study focused on factory workers critical reflection while working on the shop floor. Using ethnography methodology I analyzed the observed and interviewed data of factory workers working life in order to examine critical reflection as informal learning. In this process, I used Cultural Historical Activity Theory (CHAT) as the theoretical framework in order to elaborate the process that critical reflection occurs while working.

Internet Risk @ School
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The scale and speed with which the internet has entered schools in recent years is striking. Alongside claims regarding the revolutionary potential of this technology has been a constant concern about online dangers such as pornography, chat-lines, hate-sites, drug/bomb making websites, copyright violation and network security. Addressing these issues this book reviews school e-safety documentation before drawing on empirical research undertaken in eight UK schools in the primary, secondary and post-16 education sectors. The nature of risk, the problematic interpretation of online material, student risk taking, attempts to control internet use and subsequent resistance strategies are examined from a sociological perspective. This work will be of interest to both undergraduates and postgraduates in sociology, applied anthropology, social policy or education studies, intrigued by issues of risk, surveillance or social control in schools. Furthermore, this book provides useful insights for educationalists, experienced teachers and classroom trainees who are interested in delving into the issues surrounding child e-safety in a critical manner.

Customer relationship management (CRM) is a concept that has been giving opportunity to both internal and external customers of an organization in exploring critical information. The contact center is a unit of CRM that helps in integrating valuable information through company s telephone system, chat groups, Interactive voice response, facsimile transmission, electronic data interchange, voice over internet, web sites and e-mail touch points. All these will result in satisfying customer self services for new product purchases, assist in up-selling and cross-selling and creating customer loyalty, value and profitability. Disappointedly, despite the enormous increasing acknowledgement of CRM importance, very little literatures have focused on the impact of CRM applications on inbound contact center performance. This book argued on the need for managers to relook into their over concentrations on operational variables as a measure of efficiency. It also explains the positive impacts of knowledge management and technology based CRM on first call resolution (FCR) and caller satisfaction within the inbound contact centers. Key benefits for practitioners and academia are also discussed.
