Technology, Institutions and Labor: Manufacturing Automobiles in Argentina and Turkey

Technology, Institutions and Labor: Manufacturing Automobiles in Argentina and Turkey By Fulya Apaydin
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 231 Pages | ISBN : 3319771035 | 3.28 MB

In this book Fulya Apaydin argues that labor responses to dramatic technological change are influenced by the political institutions of the Global South more than any other factor. In addressing vocational education programs – which are highly relevant in understanding how labor unrest is governed in developing settings – she makes two important contributions. Firstly, she offers a new theoretical framework to understand labor mobilization and de-mobilization patterns, rethinking vocational education as a key transmission belt for manufacturing labor consent. Secondly, she provides a systematic comparison of skill formation schemes and their implications on labor mobilization in federal and unitary systems. With a focus on Argentina and Turkey, two case studies are provided in which technology has provoked differing levels of strikes, walkouts and extended protest.

All that Neal Page wants to do is to get home for Thanksgiving. His flight has been cancelled due to bad weather, so he decides on other means of transport. As well as bad luck, Neal is blessed with the presence of Del Griffith, shower curtain ring salesman and all-around blabbermouth who is never short of advice, conversation, bad jokes, or company. And when he decides that he is going the same direction as Neal….

EAC Rip | FLAC (tracks+.cue, log) ~ 521.90 Mb | 76:48 | Scans included
Bop, Hard Bop | Country: USA | Label: Prestige/Fantasy - PRCD-24263-2

The Modern Jazz Disciples weren't a group for very long; 14 of the 15 masters they recorded for Prestige between 1959 and 1960 are present on this compilation of their only two releases. Praised by Cannonball Adderley and Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis (the latter who helped get them their record deal), this fine quintet deserved a better fate. Leader Curtis Peagler is a Charlie Parker-influenced alto saxophonist, while the other major soloist, William "Hicky" Kelley, plays the rarely heard normaphone, a sort of valve trombone built shaped somewhat like an alto sax. Both men are strong soloists and also engage in some sensitive interplay on occasion.

Elementary Mechanics Using Matlab: A Modern Course Combining Analytical and Numerical Techniques (Repost)

Elementary Mechanics Using Matlab: A Modern Course Combining Analytical and Numerical Techniques By Anders Malthe-Sørenssen
English | PDF,EPUB | 2015 | 592 Pages | ISBN : 3319195867 | 22.22 MB

This book – specifically developed as a novel textbook on elementary classical mechanics – shows how analytical and numerical methods can be seamlessly integrated to solve physics problems. This approach allows students to solve more advanced and applied problems at an earlier stage and equips them to deal with real-world examples well beyond the typical special cases treated in standard textbooks.
