Whiskey Oscar Seven Bravo Wo7b A Tale Of Cambodia 1993 from the Author: O. B. Wright. NEVER BEFORE TOLD WO7B...the call sign for a team of expats sent to extract foreign nationals from Cambodia in May,1993. With a staged civil war beginning, and bound by agreement to have no armed troops in Cambodia, the US found its citizens scattered throughout Cambodia and called on men for help that could not be linked to it if captured or killed. Revealed are the international politics and why this team was sent to rescue an American Doctor and his daughters from capture by the Khmer Rouge. From a nightclub in Bangkok, to the horrors of the Cambodian jungle, each scene is vividly described. WO7B is a discovery of the driving forces of the region, their secrets and the actions of those caught in the storm created by the new bureaucracy seated behind the desks of the next generation UN. Articles within describe the UN's press for the elections before the house of cards fell in. A brief bio of Pol Pot explains how he rose to the equal height of Hitler in Hell. Maps and photos.

Improving Mathematics At Work from the Author: Celia Hoyles. Improving Mathematics at Work questions the mathematical knowledge and skills that matter in the twenty-first century world of work, and studies how the use of mathematics in the workplace is evolving in the rapidly-changing context of new technologies and globalisation. Through a series of case studies from the manufacturing and financial service sectors, the authors argue that there has been a radical shift in the type mathematical skills required for work – a shift not yet fully recognised by the formal education system, or by employers and managers. Examining how information technology has changed mathematical requirements, the idea of Techno-mathematical Literacies (TmL) is introduced to describe the emerging need to be fluent in the language of mathematical inputs and outputs to technologies and to interpret and communicate with these, rather than merely to be procedurally competent with calculations. The authors argue for careful analyses of workplace activities, looking beyond the conventional thinking about numeracy, which still dominates policy arguments about workplace mathematics. Throughout their study, the authors answer the following fundamental questions: What mathematical knowledge and skills matter for the world of work today? How does information technology change the necessary knowledge and the ways in which it is encountered? How can we develop these essential new skills in the workforce? With evidence of successful opportunities to learn with TmL that were co-designed and evaluated with employers and employees, this book provides suggestions for the development of TmL through the use of authentic learning activities, and interactive software design. Essential reading for trainers and managers in industry, teachers, researchers and lecturers of mathematics education, and stakeholders implementing evidence-based policy, this book maps the fundamental changes taking place in workplace mathematics.

Bloody Words from the Author: David Matas. News is never neutral. From the Holocaust to Bosnia and Rwanda, the twentieth century has taught us that the modern struggle for human rights must all too often be fought in the arena of propaganda. In Bloody Words: Hate and Free Speech David Matas argues the right to freedom from incitement to hatred and its impact on free speech in modern society. The modern world's already overwhelming capacity for communicating seems to now grow exponentially. In our world of twenty-four-hour global stock trading, incessant consumer polling, and unfettered media access, information is immediate, direct, and often profound in its effect. Do the misuses of this power, by governments as well as fringe elements, require us to reconsider how we define and value free speech? In a civil and democratic society, how do we resolve the conflict between our notions of hate crimes and freedom of expression? In his thorough and articulate book, David Matas examines the need for boundaries on hate speech and how these intersect with such other fundamental rights as freedom of expression, freedom of religion, and academic freedom. From the ineffective hate laws of the German Weimar Republic to the excesses of South Africa's hate speech laws, he considers the practicalities of legislation, and with modern examples from real-life cases and special attention to the internet, options for not just preventing the promotion of hatred, but for promoting universal respect for human rights.
