Losing the signal : the untold story behind the extraordinary rise and spectacular fall of Blackberry

"In 2009, BlackBerry controlled half of the smartphone market. Today that number is less than one percent. What went so wrong? Losing the Signal is a riveting story of a company that toppled global giants before succumbing to the ruthlessly competitive forces of Silicon Valley. This is not a conventional tale of modern business failure by fraud and greed. The rise and fall of BlackBerry reveals the dangerous speed at which innovators race along the information superhighway. With unprecedented access to key players, senior executives, directors and competitors, Losing the Signal unveils the remarkable rise of a company that started above a bagel store in Ontario. At the heart of the story is an unlikely partnership between a visionary engineer, Mike Lazaridis, and an abrasive Harvard Business school grad, Jim Balsillie. Together, they engineered a pioneering pocket email device that became the tool of choice for presidents and CEOs. The partnership enjoyed only a brief moment on top of the world, however. At the very moment BlackBerry was ranked the world's fastest growing company internal feuds and chaotic growth crippled the company as it faced its gravest test: Apple and Google's entry in to mobile phones. Expertly told by acclaimed journalists, Jacquie McNish and Sean Silcoff, this is an entertaining, whirlwind narrative that goes behind the scenes to reveal one of the most compelling business stories of the new century"-- Provided by publisher.

Private Markets, Fashion Trends, Prison Camps, Dissenters and Defectors. North Korea is one of the most troubled societies on earth. The country's 24 million people live under a violent dictatorship led by a single family, which relentlessly pursues the development of nuclear arms, which periodically incites risky military clashes with the larger, richer, liberal South, and which forces each and every person to play a role in the "theater state" even as it pays little more than lip service to the wellbeing of the overwhelming majority. With this deeply anachronistic system eventually failed in the 1990s, it triggered a famine that decimated the countryside and obliterated the lives of many hundreds of thousands of people. However, it also changed life forever for those who survived. A lawless form of marketization came to replace the iron rice bowl of work in state companies, and the Orwellian mind control of the Korean Workers' Party was replaced for many by dreams of trade and profit. A new North Korea Society was born from the horrors of the era one that is more susceptible to outside information than ever before with the advent of k-pop and video-carrying USB sticks. This is the North Korean society that is described in this book. In seven fascinating chapters the authors explore what life is actually like in modern North Korea today for the ordinary "man and woman on the street." They interview experts and tap a broad variety of sources to bring a startling new insider's view of North Korean society from members of Pyongyang's ruling families to defectors from different periods and regions, to diplomats and NGOs with years of experience in the country, to cross-border traders from neighboring China, and textual accounts appearing in English, Korean and Chinese sources. The resulting stories reveal the horror as well as the innovation and humor which abound in this fascinating country.

Historical dictionary of librarianship

May 27, 2015
Quinn, Mary Ellen, 1949-
Lanham : Rowman & Littlefield, [2014]
xliv, 319 pages ; 24 cm.
Chronology -- The dictionary -- Appendix 1. American Library Association accredited library and information studies master's programs from 1925 through the present -- Appendix 2. Library schools, libraries, and librarians outside the United States.
Although librarianship as an organized profession dates back only as far as the mid-19th century, the history of libraries is much older; people have been engaged in pursuits that we recognize as librarianship for thousands of years. This book traces librarianship from its origins in ancient times through its development to control the flood of information in the modern world to its profound transformation in response to the new technologies of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Historical Dictionary of Librarianship focuses on the modern profession of librarianship, emphasizing the period beginning in the mid-19th century. Mary Ellen Quinn relates the profession's history through a chronology, an introduction, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section contains more than 300 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, libraries around the world, and notable organizations and associations. This book is an excellent reference for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about librarianship. -- from back cover.

Painting beyond Pollock

May 27, 2015
Falconer, Morgan.
374 pages : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 30 cm
Introduction -- Things Must Be Pulverized - Abstract Expressionism -- Wounded Painting - Informel In Europe And Beyond -- Witnesses - Post-War Figurative Painting -- Against Gesture - Geometric Abstraction -- Post-Painting Part I - After Pollock -- Anti-Tradition - Pop Painting -- A Transcendental High Art - Neo-Expressionism and its Discontents -- Post-Painting Part II - After Pop -- New Figures - Pop Romantics.
Painting, with its endless capacity for reinvention, continues to occupy a privileged position in Western art. Since the mid-20th century, new practices have pushed art into territories such as performance and installation, leading some critics and artists to declare painting irrelevant or even finished. But these developments have, in fact, driven painting to new heights of innovation and interest, making these seventy years arguably the most lively in its history. Morgan Falconer tells the story beginning with Jackson Pollock and the Abstract Expressionists on both sides of the Atlantic, proceeds through postwar abstraction in France, social realism in East Germany, the end of geometric abstraction in Europe, American post-painterly abstraction, the handmade ready-mades of Rauschenberg and Johns, Pop's rise in Britain and the US, painting's confrontations with photography in the 1960s and beyond, the return of expressionism in the 1980s, new approaches to Pop in the 1990s and 2000s, and the continued variety of some of the most recent paintings to be made by a younger, 'post-medium' generation of artists. Painting Beyond Pollock is an illuminating guide for both specialists and enthusiasts of painting, written in language that is intelligent and accessible.

Reeves, Judy, 1942-
Novato, California : New World Library, [2015]
249 pages ; 22 cm
"In her years as a writing coach, Judy Reeves has found twin urges in women. They yearn to reclaim a true nature obscured by traditional roles and to write about, through, and beyond this process. Reeves herself experienced this need, which informed her most popular workshop and now this workshop in a book. Reeves focuses consecutively on the cycles that make up a woman's life, from Wild Child, Mother/Sister/Daughter, and Loves and Lovers to explorations of creative work, friendship communities, and how the Wise Woman encounters death. Intensely practical, Wild Women, Wild Voices answers common female needs and wants with specific and inspiring activities, exercises, and writing prompts. With true empathy, Reeves offers women permission and instruction on "going wild" with joyful purpose. "-- Provided by publisher.

"A tantalizing selection of stories from some of the best female authors who've helped define the modern vampire. Bram Stoker was hardly the first author-- male or female-- to fictionalize the folkloric vampire, but he defined the modern iconic vampire when Dracula appeared in 1897. Blood Sisters collects a wide range of fantastical stories from New York Times bestsellers Charlaine Harris, Holly Black, Nancy Holder, Catherynne M. Valente, and Carrie Vaughn, and critically acclaimed writers Chelsea Quinn Yarbro and Tanith Lee, all of whom have left their indelible and unique stamps on the vampire genre. Whether they are undeniably heroes and heroines or bloodthirsty monsters (or something in between), the undead are a lively lot." -- Provided by publisher.

Mob cop : my life of crime in the Chicago Police Department

Pascente, Fred, 1942-2014.
Chicago, Illinois : Chicago Review Press, 2015.
vii, 328 pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrataions ; 24 cm
"Former Chicago police officer and mafia associate Fred Pascente is the man who links Tony Spilotro, the protagonist of Nicholas Pileggi's Casino and one of Chicago's most notorious mob figures, to William Hanhardt, chief of detectives of the Chicago Police Department. Pascente and Spilotro grew up together on Chicago's near West Side, and as young toughs they were rousted and shaken down by Hanhardt. While Spilotro became the youngest made man in Chicago Outfit history, Pascente was drafted into the army and then joined the police department. Soon taken under Hanhardt's wing because of his connections, Pascente served as Hanhardt's fixer and bagman on the department for more than a decade. At the same time, Pascente remained close to Spilotro, making frequent trips to Las Vegas to party with his old friend while helping to rob the casinos blind. Mob Cop tells about the decline of traditional organized crime in the United States, and it reveals information about the inner workings of the Outfit that have never been publicly released. Fred Pascente's positions as an insider on both the criminal and law enforcement fronts makes this story a matchless tell-all. "-- Provided by publisher.
