Whatever you're trying to learn about the world—as a journalist or as an informed citizen— public records often hold the key. But what records, where? And how to get them? It starts with understanding the Freedom of Information Act, but what you really need are strategies for dealing with the officials who stand between you and the information you seek. Gaining access to records is an art, one that requires an organized approach and a good understanding of human behavior.

Social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, and Flickr allow users to connect with one another and share information with the click of a mouse or a tap on a touchscreen—and have become vital tools for professionals in the news and strategic communication fields. But as rapidly as these services have grown in popularity, their legal ramifications aren't widely understood. To what extent do communicators put themselves at risk for defamation and privacy lawsuits when they use these tools, and what rights do communicators have when other users talk about them on social networks? How can an entity maintain control of intellectual property issues—such as posting copyrighted videos and photographs—consistent with the developing law in this area? How and when can journalists and publicists use these tools to do their jobs without endangering their employers or clients? In Social Media and the Law, eleven media law scholars address these questions and more, including current issues like copyright, online impersonation, anonymity, cyberbullying, sexting, and WikiLeaks. Students and professional communicators alike need to be aware of laws relating to defamation, privacy, intellectual property, and government regulation—and this guidebook is here to help them navigate the tricky legal terrain of social media.

Reconnecting Marketing to Markets

The historical link between marketing and markets, prevalent until the 1960s, has given way to the view of marketing as a portable set of tools applicable to markets and non-markets alike. By re-establishing the connection between the two, this book examines the argument that marketing produces markets: marketing practices and theories play a very significant role in the production of markets and the kinds of entities and phenomena that populate markets. This interdisciplinary book brings together theoretical and empirical contributions from marketing and economic sociologists to analyse and develop novel approaches to interpreting the relationship between marketing theory, marketing practices, and markets across a variety of market settings and countries.

Prokrastination ist in der heutigen Zeit ein weit verbreitetes Phänomen: Aufschieberitis. Statt sich den anstehenden Aufgaben und Verpflichtungen zu widmen, werden diese beharrlich vor sich hergeschoben. Vor lauter Optionen sehen viele nicht mehr das Wesentliche. Schluss mit Prokrastination zeigt den Ausweg aus Demotivation, Frustration, Chaos und Stress. Das Ziel ist innere Motivation, Aktionsfähigkeit, Effektivität und Zufriedenheit in Beruf und im Privatleben. Petr Ludwig überträgt die neuesten wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse in die Praxis und räumt mit Halbwahrheiten und Mythen im Bereich der Persönlichkeitsentwicklung auf. Er erklärt, warum Aufgaben überhaupt aufgeschoben werden und wie man sich immer wieder aufs Neue motivieren kann. Anhand acht konkreter Instrumente kann jeder lernen, die eigene Vision zu finden, neue Gewohnheiten zu entwickeln, Aufgaben und Zeit zu organisieren und mit Misserfolgen umzugehen – damit nachhaltig mit der Prokrastination endlich Schluss zu machen.
