This new edition of a bestseller book addresses the complexities of disaster preparedness and business continuity. Updated with the latest statistics, the new edition includes an overview of natural disasters, coverage of computer and data protection expanded to include cyber-attacks on the private sector, and information on managing data privacy. It also includes the latest information on dirty bombs, chemical and biological agents and weapons, disaster planning and recovery issues, regulatory influences and emergency preparedness. This reference highlights the importance of prevention as well as controlling the effects of a disaster on a company's operations.
This monograph is devoted to theoretical and experimental study of inhibitory decision and association rules. Inhibitory rules contain on the right-hand side a relation of the kind "attribut = value". The use of inhibitory rules instead of deterministic (standard) ones allows us to describe more completely infor- tion encoded in decision or information systems and to design classi?ers of high quality. The mostimportantfeatureofthis monographis thatit includesanadvanced mathematical analysis of problems on inhibitory rules. We consider algorithms for construction of inhibitory rules, bounds on minimal complexity of inhibitory rules, and algorithms for construction of the set of all minimal inhibitory rules. We also discuss results of experiments with standard and lazy classi?ers based on inhibitory rules. These results show that inhibitory decision and association rules can be used in data mining and knowledge discovery both for knowledge representation and for prediction. Inhibitory rules can be also used under the analysis and design of concurrent systems. The results obtained in the monograph can be useful for researchers in such areas as machine learning, data mining and knowledge discovery, especially for those who are working in rough set theory, test theory, and logical analysis of data (LAD). The monograph can be used under the creation of courses for graduate students and for Ph.D. studies.

I was soul searching, and as a result I came up with these two booklets: Volume I, "Steps Toward Healthier and Happier Relationships," and Volume II, "Unraveling Inner Conflicts." These breakthroughs led me to understand how people relate to each other on a daily basis. This helped me to learn some of the dynamics of human relationships in relation to my own experience. The cowardly lion in "The Wizard of Oz" needed courage. And I needed the courage to write and publish the thoughts about my recovery. These two booklets will enlighten and inspire one to take charge of their rehabilitation towards their recovery. Beverly Johnson, a native New Yorker, she is still in recovery and sustaining her mental health. She has been an invited speaker at several major New York City hospitals and universities to lecture about her recovery.
