What do Barbie dolls, Nokia phones, and American Express credit cards have in common? They all represent a powerful business model called pyramid profit. How about Intel, Microsoft, and Stephen King? They all exploit another model called value chain position profit. The Art of Profitability reveals the invisible but important governing principles that can mean the difference between business failure and success. Writing with wit and provocative insight, best selling author Adrian Slywotzy tells the story of eccentric strategy teacher David Zhao and his young student. Each of the book´s chapters presents a lesson from the exuberant and always challenging master - and a profit paradigm that will open your mind to the many ways to make profit happen. You´ll understand - from a different perspective - how your company and your competitors generate profit, which business models can be best applied to your profit-making strategy, what specific actions your organization can take in the next ninety days to improve its bottom line, and more. With scores of examples from today´s global marketplace, a weekly assignment, and an eclectic business reading list ranging from Obvious Adams to Einstein´s Dreams, The Art of Profitability invites anyone in business to engage in the lively exchange between mentor and protégé. Enter the classroom. Discover the art. And learn which form of profitability will help your company succeed today and grow tomorrow. 1. Language: English.

Sun Tzu´s The Art of War is one of the world´s most influential books about leadership. It has been read and utilized not only by military professionals and generals, but by CEOs of companies, by teachers and pastors, and by many in leadership positions. Those who want to be successful leaders should follow Sun Tzu´s teachings. While his book is focused on war and battle, it can be translated easily to modern day life. The lessons Sun Tzu teaches are vital to manage a successful business or any venture. The Art of War has influenced politics and war for centuries and even has applications in business and sports. Sun Tzu was a military general and a renowned strategist and philosopher. Much of what he wrote in The Art of War came from his experience on the battle field. Sun Tzu was born in 544 BC and died in 496 BC. These years were known as the Spring and Autumn period in ancient Chinese history. His birth name was Sun Wu and he was known by the name Changqing. He was given the name ´´Sun Tzu” as an honorary title meaning ´´Master Sun”. Sun Tzu is known to have served king Helü of Wu starting in 512 BC. Sun Tzu had many victories that inspired him to write The Art of War. Many military leaders and strategists utilized Sun Tzu´s work in the Warring States period in Chinese history, when the seven nations of Zhao, Qi, Qin, Chu, Han, Wei, and Yan all battled for control over large Chinese territories. Many copies of The Art of War are filled with stories of battles telling of Sun Tzu´s teachings as examples of how his influence over these leaders led them to victory. 1. Language: English.

Synthetic Biology provides a framework to examine key enabling components in the emerging area of synthetic biology. Chapters contributed by leaders in the field address tools and methodologies developed for engineering biological systems at many levels, including molecular, pathway, network, whole cell, and multi-cell levels. The book highlights exciting practical applications of synthetic biology such as microbial production of biofuels and drugs, artificial cells, synthetic viruses, and artificial photosynthesis. The roles of computers and computational design are discussed, as well as future prospects in the field, including cell-free synthetic biology and engineering synthetic ecosystems. Synthetic biology is the design and construction of new biological entities, such as enzymes, genetic circuits, and cells, or the redesign of existing biological systems. It builds on the advances in molecular, cell, and systems biology and seeks to transform biology in the same way that synthesis transformed chemistry and integrated circuit design transformed computing. The element that distinguishes synthetic biology from traditional molecular and cellular biology is the focus on the design and construction of core components that can be modeled, understood, and tuned to meet specific performance criteria and the assembly of these smaller parts and devices into larger integrated systems that solve specific biotechnology problems. Includes contributions from leaders in the field presents examples of ambitious synthetic biology efforts including creation of artificial cells from scratch, cell-free synthesis of chemicals, fuels, and proteins, engineering of artificial photosynthesis for biofuels production, and creation of unnatural living organisms Describes the latest state-of-the-art tools developed for low-cost synthesis of ever-increasing sizes of DNA and efficient modification of proteins, pathways, and genomes Highlights key technologies for analyzing biological systems at the genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic levels which are especially valuable in pathway, whole cell, and multi-cell applications Details mathematical modeling tools and computational tools which can dramatically increase the speed of the design process as well as reduce the cost of development.
China am Ende der Ming-Dynastie, das Land wird von dem skrupellosen Yu terrorisiert. Hoffnung in der Bevölkerung keimt auf, als sich Martial-Arts-Meister und Freiheitskämpfer Zhao (Jet Li) zum Ziel setzt, mit der Korruption und Unterdrückung aufzuräumen. Im Wüsten-Gasthaus ´Dragon Gate´ trifft Yu auf Zhao und seine Kämpfer sowie auf eine Gruppe trinkfester Mongolen, die darauf warten, dass ein mächtiger Sandsturm eine sagenumwobene Stadt aus Gold freilegen wird. Die Gier steht allen ins Gesicht geschrieben, und so kommt es zum ultimativen und tödlichen Kampf... Regisseur und Produzent Tsui Hark ist der unumstrittene Meister der Martial-Arts-Epen und hat mit ´A Chinese Ghost Story´ und ´Once Upon A Time in China´ Filmgeschichte geschrieben. Auch ´The Flying Swords Of Dragon Gate´ ist ein opulenter und bildgewaltiger Wirbelsturm voller Action und Dramatik. Ausgezeichnet mit mehreren ´Asian Film Awards´ und ´Hong Kong Film Awards´.
