CADWALLADER COLDEN

This is the first complete biography of Cadwallader Colden (1688-1776), one of the most accomplished intellectual and political figures in the American colonies before the Revolution. As the longest-serving Lieutenant Governor of New York he was intimately involved in the tumultuous political life of the times. His History of the Five Indian Nations (1727) was the first English history of the Iroquois and a popular book both in the colonies and in Europe. Colden was also a trained physician. Though he never practiced, he significantly improved the public health of the colony. Furthermore, he was an internationally recognized botanist, the author of the first scientific paper published in the colonies, and an accomplished cartographer who published the first map in the colony of New York. A prolific letter writer, Colden corresponded with many of the major intellectuals of his day, including Benjamin Franklin and Samuel Johnson. In addition, he wrote extensively on a wide range of topics, including philosophy, history, the natural sciences, and mathematics. Why has this distinguished individual fallen into obscurity? As an ardent royalist he was the most vilified of the colonial leaders and was even burned in effigy. This well-researched and long-overdue biography tells the fascinating story of this multifaceted colonial Renaissance man.

Women on Kazantzakis: Biography and Fiction Women on Kazantzakis: Biography and Fiction Новинка

Women on Kazantzakis: Biography and Fiction

Nikos Kazantzakis (1883-1957), an eminent Modern Greek writer, had the advantage of having a number of biographies written about him, four of which were by women writers who were more or less intimately related to him. Taking into account that in Greece biography has not flourished as a genre and that very few Modern Greek writers/ poets constitute an exception to this rule, their biographies still tending to be written by foreign scholars rather than Greek ones, the case of Kazantzakis as a biographee of so many writers, and Greek biographers at that, is something of a phenomenon.The aim of this thesis is to undertake a comparative examination of the four biographies in order to establish the degree of objectivity eventually achieved by each of them. Issues concerning biography and objectivity, the representation of women in Kazantzakis'' novels and lastly, (auto)biography and fiction will inform the examination of the biographies and place their analysis in a wider and more theoretical framework. This book is believed to contribute to the existing bibliography on Kazantzakis since for the first time a detailed study of the Kazantzakis biographies written by women is provided.

Intellectual Property Protection for Computer Software

Revision with unchanged content. This book explores the reform of intellectual property regulation policies with respect to computer software within two advanced industrial nations after 1980. A comparative case analysis of the United States and Japan provides insight as to how advanced industrial nations have responded to market forces, competing private interests, and international pressure for policy harmonization in the construction and implementation of intellectual property regulation reforms. This study shows that ideological and structural arrangements of state institutions have influenced the extent of liberalization in intellectual property policy, and the preservation of equilibrium between individual rights and public interests in the establishment of intellectual property.

A Room of One's Own A Room of One's Own Новинка

A Room of One's Own

A Room of One's Own is Virginia Woolf's most powerful feminist essay, justifying the need for women to possess intellectual freedom and financial independence. Based on a lecture given at Girton College, Cambridge, the essay is one of the great feminist polemics, ranging in its themes from Jane Austen and Carlotte Bronte to the silent fate of Shakespeare's gifted (imaginary) sister and the effects of poverty and sexual constraint on female creativity. Virginia Woolf is regarded as a major twentieth-century author and essayist, a key figure in literary history as a feminist and modernist, and the centre of 'The Bloomsbury Group'. Between 1925 and 1931 Woolf produced what are now regarded as her finest masterpieces, from Mrs Dalloway (1925) to the poetic and highly experimental novel The Waves (1931). She also maintained an astonishing output of literary criticism, short fiction, journalism and biography, including the playfully subversive Orlando (1928) and A Room of One's Own (1929). If you enjoyed A Room of One's Own, you might like Woolf's Orlando, also available in Penguin Modern Classics.

Intellectual Property Management in Techno-Economic Paradigm

In the current techno-economic paradigm , IPR affect organisations at the micro as well as macro economic levels. In fact, with development in the area being so pertinent to the global scenario and with the influence of multiple disciplines, it has become important for organisations to formulate strategies and policies to manage intellectual property. Issues like valuation and accounting of intellectual property now top the priority list of technology intensive organisations. Intellectual asset procurements are now ensuring a great number of acquisitions and take-overs. Organisations face dilemma over the transfer of technology and choice of entry in a domestic or a foreign isle. Licensing an intellectual property, direct entry or sharing intellectual property through joint ventures has become a difficult choice for organisations of international stature. The current research is an initiator to address a pool of managerial, legal and economic concerns about strategy, valuation and accounting, controls and audits, and about managing intellectual property as a key source for differentiation as an innovative and wealth creating organisation.

The Cinematic Essay The Cinematic Essay Новинка

The Cinematic Essay

The cinematic essay, also known as the essay film, is an extension of the documentary genre which replaces the impossible task of objectivity with a more subjective, argumentative approach. Until the recent growth in digital technology, which has decreased the financial burden associated with the cost of film stock and other aspects of production, essayistic cinema was mostly created by professional filmmakers, who approach thesis-driven arguments through a visual medium to achieve what documentary pioneer John Grierson described as “the creative treatment of actuality” (Winston, 19). Yet in recent years the development of digital cameras and editing equipment has made it possible for amateur filmmakers, including those involved in academia, to craft essay films with the same efficiency and quality of their professional predecessors.

This is an inquiry into the intellectual career of Sayyid Qub(1906-1966),an Egyptian poet,educator,journalist,literary critic and a leading but highly controversial intellectual of contemporary Islamic movements in Egypt, the Arab and Islamic worlds. Qutb was imprisoned with many of the rank and file of the Society of Muslim Brothers from 1954-1964 and was subsequently rearrested and tried in 1965 and 1966 for allegedly leading an underground apparatus which was conspiring to overthrow the late President Nasser's regime by force...His controversial work Ma'alim fi al-tariq(Milestones on the Road),1964,was utilized by the Egyptian state security's prosecutor's office in building its case against him and was instrumental in sending him to the gallows in August 1966. Qutb's execution only created a new "martyr" for the contemporary Islamic movement. Qutb's writings have become an integral part of Islamic resurgence since the 1967 Arab defeat and the failures of Arab regimes to build viable social justice in Arab societies. The impact of Qutb's thought on global jihadists such as Physician Ayman Al-Zawahiri of Al-Qa'eda is examined.

An African (Auto)biography. Ama Ata Aidoo's Literary Quest

In 1991 Ama Ata Aidoo’s novel Changes. A Love Story was awarded the prestigious Commonwealth Writers’ Prize. She was not a novice writer at all; her writing career had started almost twenty years earlier and her presence in the world of African letters was indisputable. This novel meant the definitive critical recognition of Aidoo’s work worldwide. However, for Changes to come to light, a set of earlier texts authored by Aidoo had to be written. These earlier texts are the focus of study of An African Auto(Biography). Ama Ata Aidoo’s Literary Quest. It is in those other texts where Aidoo’s voice, perennially imbibed with Africanness and femaleness is being shaped and this voice cries out amid the contradictions, ambiguities and desires of the postcolonial arena. Her (auto)biography is a journey into the strangeness that builds the African independent nation and one that challenges Western tradition but in this nation-building process, her experience as a woman is paramount. An African Auto(Biography) explores the creative strategies employed by an African woman to write Africa in the two decades following the independence of her country, Ghana, former British Gold Coast.

Intellectual Property Rights in Biotechnology Innovations

Intellectual property is the delicate product of the mind’s work. The nations worldwide generally recognize four different courses for protecting intellectual property: copyright, trademark, trade secret and patent. These courses are non-exclusive, and under appropriate state of affairs, one possibly will get hold of multiple forms of protection for the same tract of intellectual property. Intellectual property has the powers of personal property. Accordingly, it may be purchased, assigned, licensed, pledged or transferred in the same manner as other forms of personal property. In recent few years, advancements in Biotechnology lead to the development of variously economically and commercially important inventions. Patent protection for such biotechnology innovations is an incalculably vital matter of apprehension.

Intellectual Capital

This thesis examines the concept of intellectual capital and its effect on share prices as a means to solve the lemons problem existent in current capital markets. In order to see whether intellectual capital could be part of a solution to combat this problem, the VAICTM was employed to determine the relevance of intellectual capital in relation to the stock price. The results of the regressions carried out show that the VAICTM is significant and provides increased explainability in the variation of stock prices. This leads to the conclusion that intellectual capital is an important determinant of share returns. Time comparisons of the R2 of calendar year regressions yielded no definitive conclusions regarding the conjecture that there was increased relevance of the measure of intellectual capital over time. Altogether, the results point towards the hypothesized relation between intellectual capital information and share returns. This indicates that high quality companies that wish to seek external financing in a market facing the lemons problem would benefit from the increased disclosure of intellectual capital information.

The concept of intellectual capital is gaining increased attention in recent years in the wake of emerging service and knowledge based industries. It has become imperative for any company to measure and actively manage intellectual capital. This book aims to provide insight into the concepts and measures of intellectual capital, factors affecting intellectual capital, and derives a value added intellectual coefficient from variables like revenue, expenditures, and investment in capital, including human capital, in the context of a service industry, viz-a-viz the banking sector. The study gives evidence to the notion of intellectual capital through the use of statistical data by measuring the value of intellectual capital and its impact on the performance of Nepalese Commercial Banks. This book may be useful for students, lecturers, researchers, and business executives worldwide.

Dear Mister Essay Writer Guy: Advice and Confessions on Writing, Love, and Cannibals

The personal essay has never been more popular, with the likes of Lena Dunham and Mindy Kaling breathing new life into the genre. This innovative guide to crafting modern personal essays and creative nonfiction came about when acclaimed author and professor Dinty W. Moore solicited playful writing questions from today's top writers. He then penned witty responses in the format of a "Dear Sugar"-style advice column, illustrating each response with an original, humorous sample essay. In chapter 1, Phillip Lopate asks, "I am curious how you deal honestly with male-female relations in general and specifically your past girlfriends on the page without coming off as a male chauvinist pig," and Mister Essay Writer Guy pens a sage response and example essay dishing--respectfully--on all his exes. Cheryl Strayed asks for advice about her em-dash addiction, Julianna Baggott worries that to be a great writer you must become an alcoholic, Judith Kitchen looks for an excuse to exaggerate the truth to make it more interesting, and so on. Filled with modern examples of the creative forms nonfiction can take--including scribbled cocktail napkins, Facebook posts, and Google Map pins--this gifty little book is a hilarious relief for all essayists, memoirists, and creative nonfiction writers in distress.
