This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to effectively curb and control incidences of bullying either at school or at other venues. The lessons and pointers contained herein couldn't have come at a more appropriate time, given the steady rise of cases of bullying. As it were, bullying is a menacing problem that has been proven to cause not only physical pain and short-term anxiety, but also lifelong consequences with adverse effects on one's mental and emotional growth. This problem is exacerbated by the increasingly troubling ubiquity of cyberbullying, where the same nasty bullying behavior is carried over to an entirely new platform - this time, the Internet. Given young people's predilection to go online as digital natives, it comes as no surprise that the World Wide Web becomes, by itself, an extension of their real world, one that is more insidious because of its inherently viral and damning nature. It is therefore imperative for parents to take on a more proactive role in ensuring that their children are adequately protected from, or else aware of how to deal with, bullying. There should be systems in place to contain incidences of bullying before they morph into something worse, and these safeguards should naturally begin at home. 1. Language: English.

Is it possible for the economy to grow without the environment being destroyed? Will our lifestyles impoverish the planet for our children and grandchildren? Is the world sick? Can it be healed? Less than a lifetime ago, these questions would have made no sense. This was not because our ancestors had no impact on nature - nor because they were unaware of the serious damage they had done. What people lacked was an idea: a way of imagining the web of interconnection and consequence of which the natural world is made.In this fascinating book, Paul Warde, Libby Robin, and Sverker Sörlin trace the emergence of the concept of the environment following World War II, a period characterized by both hope for a new global order and fear of humans' capacity for almost limitless destruction. It was at this moment that a new idea and a new narrative about the planet-wide impact of people's behavior emerged, closely allied to anxieties for the future.With the rise of "the environment", the authors argue, came new expertise, making certain kinds of knowledge crucial to understanding the future of our planet. The untold history of how people came to conceive, to manage, and to dispute environmental crisis, The Environment is a must-listen book for anyone who wants to help protect the environment from the numerous threats it faces today. 1.

A groundbreaking exploration of how cyberspace is changing the way we think, feel, and behave. Mary Aiken is the world's leading expert in forensic cyberpsychology - a discipline that combines psychology, criminology, and technology to investigate the intersection where technology and human behavior meet. In this, her first book, Aiken has created a starting point for all future conversations about how the Internet is shaping development and behavior, societal norms and values, children, safety, security, and our perception of the world. Cyberspace is an environment full of surveillance, but who is looking out for us? The Cyber Effect offers a fascinating and chilling look at a future we can still do something about. Drawing on her own research and extensive experience with law enforcement, Mary Aiken covers a wide range of subjects, from the impact of screens on the developing child to the explosion of teen sexting and the acceleration of compulsive and addictive behaviors online (gaming, shopping, pornography). She examines the escalation of cyberchondria (anxiety produced by self-diagnosing online), cyberstalking, and organized cybercrime in the deep web. Aiken provides surprising statistics and incredible but true case studies of hidden trends that are shaping our culture and raising troubling questions about where the digital revolution is taking us. The Cyber Effect will upend your assumptions about your online life and forever change the way you think about the technology you, your friends, and your family use. Listeners will gain a new understanding of the rapid change taking shape around us and come away with critical tools to become part of this very necessary conversation. 1. Language: English.

Modern World Wide Web provides a variety of services ranging from e-mail and social networking to banking and shopping. It is difficult for service providers to manage these Internet services, because: (1) they exhibit complex structural organization, where component middleware (such as Java EE) is often used as building platform, and (2) complex session-oriented client behavior makes it hard to predict what impact service management mechanisms will have on application behavior. This book presents several new and novel Internet service management techniques that target two interconnected goals: (1) providing improved Quality-of-Service guarantees to the service clients, and (2) optimizing server resource utilization. These mechanism are representatively chosen to validate the claim that exposing and using detailed information about how clients use Internet services enables mechanisms that achieve the range of goals listed above. This book should be useful to all professionals working in the area of Internet services, or anyone else who may be interested in the latest developments in this exciting area of distributed computing systems research and practice.
This book examines Information and Communication Technology (ICT) use in workplace environments in Norway and the United States. Despite the appropriateness and timeliness of the World Wide Web and Internet as topics of study today, little is known about how people actually use a full range ICTs in naturalistic settings. This investigation primarily addresses the following research question: How do workers use ICTs to meet business objectives when a full array of ICTs is available to them? The data, targeting high-end ICT users, includes 72 semi-structured, in-depth individual interviews 36 in the U.S. and 36 in Norway. A Grounded Theory approach was chosen for its ability to generate descriptive and explanatory accounts of contemporary organizational ICT-use behavior by advanced users.
