Kay Hamilton has been quietly recruited by the Callahan Group, a quasi-governmental agency charged with accomplishing special missions--off the grid. But before Kay's completed her training, she's sent to a hostile province in Afghanistan, where a mission turns unexpectedly and explosively violent. Barely escaping with her life, Kay follows a trail of deception and murder, finding herself at the center of an international plot she begins to question those she loves, those she works for, and her own faith in justice.

Timothy Smith argues that the French economic and social model is imploding on itself despite good intentions. Bad policies and vested interests that exploit the rhetoric of 'solidarity' and the specter of globalization have prevented necessary changes from being effected. Making frequent comparisons with the U. S. , U. K. , Canada, Scandinavia, Germany and the Netherlands, Smith argues that change need not follow the inegalitarian U. S. or British paths in order to lead to a more balanced French society.
Currently, due to the high flow in air traffic, automatic tools for managing the air space become to be important in order to make easy the decision making by the air traffic controlling staff. In this environment, the mathematical optimization is presented as a strong discipline to tackle the different problems involved in the big project known as Air Traffic Management. In this environment, the aircraft collision avoidance takes a prominent place being so much important for a right distribution of the air traffic flow. This book presents two mathematical optimization models based on a geometric construction that allows the conflict detection and resolution. Some algorithmic approaches for problem solving are presented, as well as the results of a broad computational experience with realistic sized instances. The difficulty of the problem together with the need of obtaining a good solution in almost real-time makes the problem an interesting challenge for researching.
Liza McCullen will never escape her past. But the unspoilt beaches and tight-knit community of Silver Bay offer the freedom and safety she craves - if not for herself, then for her young daughter, Hannah. Until Mike Dormer arrives as a guest in her aunt s hotel, and the peace of Silver Bay is shattered. The mild-mannered Englishman with his too-smart clothes and disturbing eyes could destroy everything Liza has worked so hard to protect: not only the family business and the bay that harbours her beloved whales, but also her conviction that she will never love - never deserve to love - again.
This book provides an assessment of the risks to human health associated with consumption of fish from Laguna de Bay. Fish samples of bangus, bighead carp, dalag, kanduli, and tilapia collected during the wet and dry seasons were analyzed for cadmium, lead, mercury, arsenic, and chromium. Estimates of health risks were summarized according to non-carcinogenic and carcinogenic health effects. Non-carcinogenic Hazard Quotient values of five heavy metals showed that lead is the most urgent pollutant of concern from all sampling locations in the lake. Elevated health risk for mercury was also evident in the west and central bay particularly for dalag and kanduli species. Among the five heavy metals only arsenic is a confirmed human carcinogen through the oral route of exposure. The highest life time cancer risk for arsenic was computed for tilapia from sampling station 2B (dry season) with risk value of 8. 5E-04 or an excess of 85 cancer cases per 100,000 population. From the point of view of human health protection, fish products from the lake particularly bangus, bighead carp, dalag, kanduli and tilapia are not fit for long-term human consumption.
