Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Yankee Station was a point in the Gulf of Tonkin off the coast of Vietnam used by the U.S. Navy aircraft carriers of Task Force 77 to launch strikes in the Vietnam War. While its official designation was "Point Yankee," it was universally referred to as Yankee Station. Carriers conducting air operations at Yankee Station were said to be "on the line" and statistical summaries were based on days on the line. The name derived from it being the geographic reference point "Y", pronounced "Yankee" in the NATO phonetic alphabet. In turn the term Point Yankee derived from the launch point for "Yankee Team" aerial reconnaissance missions over Laos conducted in 1964. It was located about 190 km due east of Dong Hoi, at 17° 30'' N and 108° 30'' E.

Two major challenges facing the world and Nigeria in particular are the need to satisfy the escalating demand for energy, and also deal with the degrading environmental impacts of energy production and usage. Green energy investments have been proposed as a viable solution to this energy crisis, however, a major factor hindering the comprehensive design and assessment of solar and wind energy conversion systems is adequate information on the solar radiation characteristics and wind pattern of the region in which the systems are to be located. This study, focused on Nigeria, investigated, in a geographic information system, the spatial and seasonal variation in wind and solar energy over Nigeria, using the United States National Aeronautical Space Agency s surface meteorology and solar energy (version 6) dataset. Comparing ground measured and satellite derived data at 35 locations within Nigeria, the study concluded that remote sensing is a reliable method for analyzing solar energy for this data sparse region. The book is designed to provide a knowledge base for scientists to launch major national initiatives to promote the design of site-specific wind and solar energy systems.

Why do so many global strategies fail&#151,despite companies' powerful brands and other border-crossing advantages? Seduced by market size, the illusion of a borderless, &#147,flat" world, and the allure of similarities, firms launch one-size-fits-all strategies.But cross-border differences are larger than we often assume, explains Pankaj Ghemawat in Redefining Global Strategy . Most economic activity&#151,including direct investment, tourism, and communication&#151,happens locally, not internationally.In this &#147,semiglobalized" world, one-size-fits-all strategies don't stand a chance. Companies must instead reckon with cross-border differences. Ghemawat shows you how&#151,by providing tools for:- Assessing the cultural, administrative, geographic, and economic differences between countries at the industry level and deciding which ones merit attention.- Tracking the implications of particular border-crossing moves for your company's ability to create value.- Creating superior performance with strategies optimized for adaptation (adjusting to differences), aggregation (overcoming differences), and arbitrage (exploiting differences), and for compound objectives.In-depth examples reveal how companies such as Cemex, Toyota, Procter & Gamble, Tata Consultancy Services, IBM, and GE Healthcare have adroitly managed cross-border differences&#151,as well as how other well-known companies have failed at this challenge.Crucial for any business competing across borders, this book will transform the way you approach global strategy.

From an expert in adolescent psychology comes a groundbreaking, timely, and necessary guide for parents of the 2.2 million young adults in America who are struggling to find their way in the world. In Dr. Mark McConville's decades of experience as a family clinical psychologist, perhaps no problem has been more fraught than that of young adults who fail to successfully transition from adolescence into adulthood. These kids--technically adults--just can't get it together: They can't hold a job, they struggle to develop meaningful relationships, and they often end up back in their parents' spare bedroom or on the couch. In fact, studies show that 1 in 4 Americans aged 25 to 34 neither work nor attend school, and it's a problem that spans all socioeconomic and geographic boundaries. McConville investigates the root causes of this problem: Why are modern kids "failing to launch" in ever-increasing numbers? The key, McConville has found, is that they are struggling with three critical skills that are necessary to make the transition from childhood to adulthood--finding a sense of purpose, developing administrative responsibility, and cultivating interdependence. In Failure to Launch, McConville breaks these down into achievable, accessible goals and offers a practical guide for the whole family, to help parents instill those skills in their young adults--and to get their kids into the real world, ready to start their lives.
