Elements of Preparedness

by J McDonald

Are you prepared? It’s a simple question that can lead to more questions such as ‘What should I be prepared for?’, ‘Why should I bother preparing?’, ‘How prepared should I be?’ and many others. While there are a lot of great books available that can show you how to start a fire with a couple of sticks, skin a deer with your bare teeth or fight off a zombie horde, many of them assume those are things that should be important to you without explaining why. ‘Elements of Preparedness’ focuses on the ‘why’ and ‘what’ of of being prepared and provides a structured approach to understanding the critical elements necessary to survive, the types of events that may be relevant to you, how those events can impact your survival and what you should consider doing to prepare. It goes beyond simple lists of what you should buy or learn and discusses the underlying reasons for being prepared, how various types of events can affect you and the various supporting activities that can significantly improve your preparedness investment.

The Plight of Older Workers: Labor Market Experience after Plant Closure in the Swiss Manufacturing Sector (Life Course Research and Social Policies)

by Isabel Baumann

This open access book examines the economic, social, and psychological consequences of manufacturing plant closure at the individual level. Using an original data set of over 1,200 workers from Switzerland who lost their manufacturing jobs after the financial crisis of 2008, the author analyzes the determinants of reemployment, the sector of reemployment, and the change in wages over a two year period. 

In addition, coverage also explores how plant closure affects the social relationship between a displaced worker and his or her significant other, which includes a discussion of the coping strategies on the household level as well as how changes in a worker’s social and occupational life affects overall satisfaction. 

Readers will discover that the burden of structural change disproportionately falls on the shoulders of workers aged 55 and older who often face substantial barriers when trying to return to employment. A larger portion of this group experience long-term unemployment and those who do manage to find a new job often suffer disproportionate wage loss.

This result is intriguing in the context of the current demographic change and contradicts the common assumption that young and low-qualified individuals are at greatest risk of unemployment. Advanced ageâ??and not low educationâ??appears to be the primary obstacle to workers finding job satisfaction after being laid off because of market conditions.

Cold cases are such an intriguing phenomenon that it’s easy to forget how rare they actually are. Only a few of the countless crimes committed every year become truly cold cases. The fact is that most crimes are relatively straightforward to solve, and it’s probably for this very reason that so many of us crave a real “who done it” mystery. It is the cases with random twists and unknown dimensions that capture our imagination more than any others.

All sorts of things can happen when a murder is committed, leaving us puzzled as we just can’t seem to figure out how the crime happened. However, with the capabilities of contemporary science and different ways of thinking in people throughout the ages and places, even these crimes can get solved! Check out fifteen such cases which will get your gears turning. Some of the cases included inside:
-Krystal Beslanowitch
-Anna Palmer
-Suzanne Nauman
-The Crackhead killings
-and many more

And if that’s indeed what brought you to this book, you can rest assured that it contains some of the most spine-chilling, eyebrow-raising, and head shaking cold cases you could ever imagine. And rememberâ??these aren’t fictitious figments of some rabid writer’s imagination. This is real life, and real people who spent years languishing in the forensic files of investigators waiting for the day they’d see justice. And that’s the other great thing about all of the cold cases presented in this bookâ??each and every one of them has been solved!
