The close supervision of adolescents dramatically reduces the incidence of risky sexual behavior, drug and alcohol use, and other activities that could negatively affect one's health and well-being. Because of the strong correlation between parental monitoring and a child's welfare, social workers, psychologists, child development specialists, and other professionals who work with children now incorporate monitoring into their programs and practice. A definitive resource providing the best research and techniques for productive supervision within the home, this volume defines and develops the conceptual, methodological, and practical areas of parental monitoring and monitoring research, locating the right balance of closeness and supervision while also remaining sensitive to ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Assembled by leading experts on childrearing and healthy parent-child communication, Parental Monitoring of Adolescents identifies the conditions that best facilitate parental knowledge, ideal interventions for high-risk youth, and the factors that either help or hinder the monitoring of an adolescent's world. The volume also sets a course for future research, establishing a new framework that evaluates the nature and approach of monitoring within the parent-adolescent relationship and the particular social realities of everyday life.

Was garantiert uns Wohlstand und sozialen Frieden? Wie ein Mantra kommt die Antwort aus Politik und Wirtschaft: Wachstum, Wachstum, Wachstum! Aber dürfen wir das noch glauben angesichts der Verwerfungen der jüngsten Finanz- und Wirtschaftskrisen - und angesichts der ökologischen Schäden, die unser Wirtschaften produziert? Unsere gesamte Wirtschaftsordnung baut auf ewigem Wachstum auf - aber nun brauchen wir einen anderen Motor, sagt der britische Ökonom Tim Jackson. Er hat im Auftrag der britischen Regierung den Zusammenhang von Wachstum und Wohlstand untersucht. In der aktuellen Debatte sticht seine Analyse hervor: Jackson fordert nicht weniger als die Entwicklung einer neuen Wirtschaftsordnung, die auf einem anderen Wohlstandsbegriff beruht. Ein Maß dafür, wie die Bedürfnisse und Wünsche der Menschen befriedigt werden, müsse darin ebenso eingehen wie die gerechte Verteilung von Waren und Dienstleistungen. Jacksons brisantes Buch, das nun erstmals auf Deutsch erscheint, zählt schon jetzt zu den wichtigsten Publikationen der Postwachstumsökonomie. In griffigem Stil entwickelt der Autor eine glasklare Analyse der aktuellen Situation und der Blockaden, die uns daran hindern, etwas zu ändern. Er entwickelt konkrete Überlegungen für eine nachhaltige Ökonomie und entwirft die glaubwürdige Vision einer blühenden menschlichen Gesellschaft innerhalb der bestehenden ökologischen Schranken.

Diese Droge, die man auf Arrakis im großen Stil abbaut, verleiht Menschen die Gabe, in die Zukunft zu sehen, und bildet damit die Grundlage der interstellaren Raumfahrt.

Diese erkennen in ihm den lange vorhergesagten Messias, und Paul rüstet sich zu einem gnadenlosen Rachefeldzug ...

One of the first textbooks in this emerging important field of ecology. Most of ecology is about metabolism: the ways that organisms use energy and materials. The energy requirements of individuals – their metabolic rates – vary predictably with their body size and temperature. Ecological interactions are exchanges of energy and materials between organisms and their environments. So metabolic rate affects ecological processes at all levels: individuals, populations, communities and ecosystems. Each chapter focuses on a different process, level of organization, or kind of organism. It lays a conceptual foundation and presents empirical examples. Together, the chapters provide an integrated framework that holds the promise for a unified theory of ecology. The book is intended to be accessible to upper-level undergraduate, and graduate students, but also of interest to senior scientists. Its easy-to-read chapters and clear illustrations can be used in lecture and seminar courses. Together they make for an authoritative treatment that will inspire future generations to study metabolic ecology.

Techniques and theory for processing otoliths from tropical marine fish have developed only recently due to an historic misconception that these organisms could not be aged. Otoliths are the most commonly used structures from which daily, seasonal or annual records of a fish’s environmental history are inferred, and are also used as indicators of migration patterns, home range, spatial distribution, stock structure and life history events. A large proportion of projects undertaken on tropical marine organisms involve removal and processing of calcified structures such as otoliths, statoliths or vertebrae to retrieve biological, biochemical or genetic information. Current techniques and principles have evolved rapidly and are under constant modification and these differ among laboratories, and more particularly among species and within life history stages. Tropical fish otoliths: Information for assessment, management and ecology is a comprehensive description of the current status of knowledge about otoliths in the tropics. This book has contributions from leading experts in the field, encompassing a tropical perspective on daily and annual ageing in fish and invertebrates, microchemistry, interpreting otolith microstructure and using it to back-calculate life history events, and includes a treatise on the significance of validating periodicity in otoliths.

How to close the gap between strategy and execution Two-thirds of executives say their organizations don’t have the capabilities to support their strategy. In Strategy That Works, Paul Leinwand and Cesare Mainardi explain why. They identify conventional business practices that unintentionally create a gap between strategy and execution. And they show how some of the best companies in the world consistently leap ahead of their competitors. Based on new research, the authors reveal five practices for connecting strategy and execution used by highly successful enterprises such as IKEA, Natura, Danaher, Haier, and Lego. These companies: • Commit to what they do best instead of chasing multiple opportunities • Build their own unique winning capabilities instead of copying others • Put their culture to work instead of struggling to change it • Invest where it matters instead of going lean across the board • Shape the future instead of reacting to it Packed with tools you can use for building these five practices into your organization and supported by in-depth profiles of companies that are known for making their strategy work, this is your guide for reconnecting strategy to execution.
