Heist Society

Автор: Ally Carter

When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her to the Louvre… to case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie travelled to Austria… to steal the crown jewels. When Kat turned fifteen, she planned a con of her own — scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. But now her dad’s life is on the line, and Kat must go back to the world she tried so hard to escape…

Searching and Analyzing Intellectual Property on the Internet

Searching and Analyzing Intellectual Property on the Internet

Автор: Lance Reich

This thesis concerns the usage of intelligent agents to search the Internet to identify possible infringements of and legal impediments to the procurement of intellectual property, such as existing or proposed patents, trademarks, and copyrights. The agent can utilize any of the known artificial intelligence models, such as expert systems, case-based reasoning, and fuzzy logic, and can return a ranked list of located data relevant to the searched intellectual property. A trademark search agent model is proposed that will account for differences between an input trademark, expand the search terms in an expansive heuristic manner, locate relevant data based upon the input and expanded terms, and return the most relevant terms located in a hierarchical format of relevancy. A patent intelligent search agent is proposed which can simulate the combinatory logic used by patent examiners to reject patent applications as being merely a collection of known elements.

Ireland’s Evolving Constitution 1937-1997

Автор: Edited by Tim Murphy and Patrick Twomey

To mark the sixtieth anniversary of the Constitution of the Republic of Ireland, this important collection of essays includes a wide range of contributions on the most significant aspects of Irish constitutional law and jurisprudence. In addition to political and legal commentators, leading academics in the fields of philosophy, history and political geography assess the history and future of the Constitution from the perspectives of their particular disciplines. The resulting blend of arguments offers a serious and sometimes controversial set of insights into the changing role of the constitution in light of social and political change in Ireland over the past 60 years.

Боги среди людей

Боги среди людей

Автор: Кейт Аткинсон

В высшую лигу современной литературы Кейт Аткинсон попала с первой же попытки: ее дебютный роман «Музей моих тайн» получил престижную Уитбредовскую премию, обойдя «Прощальный вздох мавра» Салмана Рушди, а цикл романов о частном детективе Джексоне Броуди, успевший полюбиться и российскому читателю («Преступления прошлого», «Поворот к лучшему», «Ждать ли добрых вестей?», «Чуть свет, с собакою вдвоем»), Стивен Кинг окрестил «главным детективным проектом десятилетия». И вот за поразительным мировым бестселлером «Жизнь после жизни», рассказывавшим, как методом проб и ошибок наконец прожить XX век правильно, следует его продолжение — «Боги среди людей». И если Урсула Тодд прожила много жизней, то ее брат Тедди — лишь одну, зато очень длинную. Он изучал в Оксфорде поэзию Уильяма Блейка, а потом убирал урожай в южной Франции, он за штурвалом четырехмоторного «галифакса» бомбил Берлин, а потом уверился, что среди людей есть боги: ведь, по выражению Эмерсона, сам человек — это рухнувшее…

Juxtaposing Autonomy and Paternalism in Private Law

Juxtaposing Autonomy and Paternalism in Private Law

Автор: Edited by Anthony Ogus and Willem H van Boom

Selecting an appropriate balance in the law between autonomy and paternalism is an important and difficult task, requiring a careful consideration of moral, political and economic values. This collection deals with the task at both general and specific levels, locating itself within the broader context of the relationship between law and market forces. Concepts are defined and analysed, in particular the distinction between the coercive approach of ‘hard paternalism’ in the law, and the ‘nudge’ approach of ‘soft paternalism’. Attention is then focused on how the tensions between the concepts are resolved in the law of contract, where deficient information and mistakes can justify an interventionist approach. Besides overviews of the issues within the general law of contract, and historical studies of the relevant principles in the common law and Roman law, the book also includes studies of specific areas, notably insurance contracts and consumer bankruptcy. The authors, from North…

Leading with a Limp: Take Full Advantage of Your Most Powerful Weakness

Leading with a Limp: Take Full Advantage of Your Most Powerful Weakness

Автор: Dan B. Allender

Put your flawed foot forward. Pick up most leadership books and you’ll find strategies for leveraging your power and minimizing your areas of weakness. But rather than work against your weakness, why not draw from a deeper well of strength? God favors leaders who make the most of the power that comes from brokenness. Go ahead and take full advantage of your flaws. The most effective leaders don’t rise to power in spite of their weakness; they lead with power because of their weakness. It is their authenticity in limping leadership that compels others to follow them. Flawed leaders are successful because they’re not preoccupied with protecting their image. They are undaunted by chaos and complexity. And they are ready to risk failure in moving an organization from what is to what should be. If you are a leader — or if you have been making excuses to avoid leading-find out how to get the most from your weakness. A limping leader is the kind of person God uses to…
