Representing Kink - Fringe Sexuality and Textuality in Literature, Digital Narrative, and Popular Culture (Hardcover): Sara K.... Representing Kink - Fringe Sexuality and Textuality in Literature, Digital Narrative, and Popular Culture (Hardcover)

Representing Kink raises awareness about nonnormative texts and non-normative erotic practices and desires. It defines "kink" broadly, encompassing a range of "inappropriate" texts and practices and understanding it in frequent reference to nonnormative erotic fantasies and experiences. Kink is treated as both a set of practices as well as a category of texts at the nexus of subject and form. In addition to canonical texts that take up erotic and marginalized themes, the collection also studies forms that are themselves fringe and feature kink: taboo literature, self-published erotica, SM narratives, fan fiction, role-playing games, and other disavowed texts. The purpose of this study is to focus attention on the margins of an already marginalized subject, in order to highlight the extent to which nonnormative textuality and eroticism both shape and are shaped by our culture. It sheds light on a category of subjects that is at once mainstream in the form of texts such as Fifty Shades of Grey and yet nevertheless repeatedly disparaged and undertheorized. This book advocates for conversations about kinky texts that transcend dichotomous frameworks of good and bad, and normal and deviant, thinking instead in new, theoretically rigorous and flexible directions.

Non-Line-of-Sight Radar is the first book on the new and exciting area of detecting and tracking targets via radar multipath without direct-line-of-sight (DLOS). This revolutionary capability is finding new applications in the tracking of objects in non-line-of-sight (NLOS) urban environments including detection and tracking of UAVs. This book brings together for the first time all the essential underpinnings and techniques required to develop and field a viable NLOS radar. It presents many examples, including electromagnetic radiation propagation in urban NLOS environments, extracting building location and morphology from readily available terrain databases, predictive ray-tracing techniques, and multi-target NLOS tracking. Readers will learn how to apply radar to urban tracking that was previously deemed impossible. The book shows how real-time physics calculations can be incorporated into the radar processor, and how existing radar hardware can be adopted for non-line-of-sight radar use without major upgrades. Including results from both high-fidelity, physics-based simulations and actual flight test data, this book establishes the efficacy of NLOS radar in practical applications.

Be the most effective CIO you can be--by learning from the best in the business

Today's Chief Information Officers must be an entirely new breed of technology leader. With ever-changing demands from the business, and in an increasingly technology-centric business environment, CIOs must find game-changing innovations and process improvements that make a real impact on the bottom line. Business executives need their CIOs to be real partners--speaking the language of the business and donning their strategist caps--not just commodity managers. Those IT leaders who fail to break out of the order-taker, utility manager mold will, simply put, be looking for a new job.

In "Confessions of a Successful CIO: How the Best CIOs Tackle Their Toughest Business Challenges," current and future CIOs will gain invaluable perspectives from the stories of today's best IT leaders. These acclaimed leaders--each profiled in their own chapter--explain the toughest business decision they had to make, and how the outcome influenced and impacted their leadership style. These in-depth anecdotes take the reader inside some of the most challenging business climates imaginable and chronicle how these elite CIOs made the decisions that mattered.Read detailed case studies of how some of the best CIOs have handled their most challenging business problemsLearn how the best CIOs anticipate changes to their business and respond--before the business comes knockingExplore how these top-flight CIOs make critical decisions around strategy and IT to not only benefit their companies, but in some cases, to save them from becoming obsolete.Analyze their perspectives on managing people, crises and balancing the risks and rewards of their "bet the farm" strategies

"Confessions of a Successful CIO" is the new playbook for learning how to take risks, respond to crises, and create more value from IT. Each chapter presents a different challenge, giving present-day and future IT leaders the chance to examine, analyze and learn so that they can be just as successful as the CIOs they're reading about.

Go along with the Colonel on this nostalgic trip back to the 1950's and life growing up in the Midwest. Follow him on his solo trek across Europe and the year that made him a man in the Aviation Cadet Program. Next it's many a day in Vietnam over the course of the war and the hardships faced by the aviators and their families on a daily basis. Life in the "fast lane" or five years in the Pentagon gives the reader a close look at the many challenges faced by the Staff Officer in the "building." Finally, the harrowing experience of life in a high school classroom for 19 years caps off the interesting adventure. Lt. Col. Watson amassed almost 5,000 hours flight time with 1,300 of it being combat time in Vietnam. He was "in country" for over 500 days covering parts of 1965,1966,1968,1969,1970,1971,1972, and 1973. He was decorated 39 times including the Legion of Merit, the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, 12 Air Medals, 2 Commendations Medals, and the Vietnam Cross of Gallantry just to mention a few. His travels took him north of the Arctic Circle to the southernmost tip of South America, all over Europe and the Far East with stops in 68 countries on 6 continents. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this most interesting story of an Air Force Officer and his travels in support of our national interests.
