AFTER YOU CALL EMERGENCY AND BEFORE IT ARRIVES It is those vital moments, those few minutes, sometimes those golden seconds during which, proper first aid is administered that decides between life and death. We are in a world where everything is on the move at high speeds. In these times of advanced technology and heavy loads, terrorist activities and natural disasters galore, anything can happen anywhere and anyhow to anybody. Caution is restricted to the boards. Factories, construction sites, in the fields and on the roads or just about anywhere has become a place of threat. Every area has become an accident prone zone. IN CASE OF EMERGENCY (ICE) - YOU HAVE TO ACT FAST AND BE PREPARED. Everyone should know about first aid - the life saving essential tool - for others and for yourselves learn first aid techniques – it helps and saves lives. This book is designed as precisely as possible in bullets. Keep this book handy along with a first aid kit. This book would be of great help to service oriented or social service organizations that may want to work as volunteers during relief operations, to train themselves and others.

At DART'09, held in conjunction with the 2009 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI 2009) and Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT 2009) in Milan (Italy), practitioners and researchers working on pervasive and intelligent access to web services and distributed information retrieval met to compare their work ad insights in such fascinating topics. Extended and revised versions of their papers, together with selected and invited original contributions, are collected in this book. Topics covered are those that emerged at DART'09 as the most intriguing and challenging: (i) community oriented tools and techniques as infrastructure of the Web 2.0; (ii) agent technology applied to virtual world scenarios; (iii) context aware information retrieval; (iv) content based information retrieval; and (v) industrial applications of information retrieval. Every chapter, before discussing in depth the specific topic, presents a comprehensive review of related work and state of the art, in the hope of this volume to be of use in the years to come, to both researchers and students.

When you hear “in home care provider,” what is your first thought? I am hoping to provide some answers for that question in this book. I hope that you find the information helpful, and that your loved one gets the best care that they deserve. Okay, you hire someone to come in to be an in home care provider to a dependent family member or loved one. What type of things are you expecting them to know how to do—this is really something that you need to think about. Do you expect them to be able to cook meals without having to teach them? Do you expect them to be able to use a toaster to make toast? Wonder why I ask this question, the answers are inside this book. Do these professionals know basic safety? Do they really know what to do in an emergency? Can the care providers read and write? Can they understand what you say when you speak? An in-home care provider is not a nurse. An in-home care provider is not a medical professional. An in-home care provider is someone who is hired to provide aide to someone, who is unable to provide for their own basic needs. An in-home care provider is a person who is hired to be essentially a helper to the person they are with. To help them do the things that they are no longer able to do by themselves. The in-home care provider is hired so that the client, who is elderly or disabled, can stay in their own home, rather than in a care facility.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the research on anomaly detection with respect to context and situational awareness that aim to get a better understanding of how context information influences anomaly detection. In each chapter, it identifies advanced anomaly detection and key assumptions, which are used by the model to differentiate between normal and anomalous behavior. When applying a given model to a particular application, the assumptions can be used as guidelines to assess the effectiveness of the model in that domain. Each chapter provides an advanced deep content understanding and anomaly detection algorithm, and then shows how the proposed approach is deviating of the basic techniques. Further, for each chapter, it describes the advantages and disadvantages of the algorithm. The final chapters provide a discussion on the computational complexity of the models and graph computational frameworks such as Google Tensorflow and H2O because it is an important issue in real application domains. This book provides a better understanding of the different directions in which research has been done on deep semantic analysis and situational assessment using deep learning for anomalous detection, and how methods developed in one area can be applied in applications in other domains. This book seeks to provide both cyber analytics practitioners and researchers an up-to-date and advanced knowledge in cloud based frameworks for deep semantic analysis and advanced anomaly detection using cognitive and artificial intelligence (AI) models.

Living theory is a way of making use of personal accounts of experienced practice. As the Pac-Man perspective on organisational change helps the change agent articulate the personal values he is committed to and how these values may be resisted in practice, living theory is useful for developing knowledge that has a practical impact on self-improvement and social change, but it is also a type of theory that is difficult to publish in academic outlets. As a consequence of this, publishing Pac-Man living-theory research becomes a Pac-Man game in itself, with the journal editors as one of the four adversary gatekeepers, but it is a rewarding game for those who want to contribute both theoretically and practically on how to make the world a better place.

"Governing Knowledge Commons argues that innovation policymaking should be based on a deeper understanding of what makes commons institutions work. It borrows from and builds on Elinor Ostrom's Nobel Prize-winning research on natural resource commons to propose a case study framework adapted to the unique attributes of knowledge and information. Eleven contributed case studies and two theoretical responses explore knowledge commons across a wide variety of scientific and cultural domains"--Unedited summary from book cover.

It has been argued that the reason seventy percent of all IT projects fail is due to lack of a formal system for guiding and monitoring IT decisions. Organisations having explicit IT governance systems are generally twice as successful as those with poor governance, given the same strategic objectives, but implementing IT governance can be difficult. In this book, Dr. Ogland looks at the public sector and argues that the implementation of IT governance has to be done through bootstrapping. The bootstrap algorithm (BA) is a time-tested approach that is known to work, but it is an approach that breaks with much of the logic of the public sector bureaucracy and is expected to be met with resistance. By analysing patterns in a study of trying to convince a Norwegian public sector organisation to implement IT governance through the use of the BA, the book is able to provide rich insights on what causes failure and how to make the implementation process succeed.
