Amaro Book Description :

Featuring more than 100 recipes, Amaro is the first book to demystify the ever-expanding, bittersweet world, and is a must-have for any home cocktail enthusiast or industry professional. The European tradition of making bittersweet liqueurs--called amari in Italian--has been around for centuries. But it is only recently that these herbaceous digestifs have moved from the dusty back bar to center stage in the United States, and become a key ingredient on cocktail lists in the country’s best bars and restaurants. Lucky for us, today there is a dizzying range of amaro available—from familiar favorites like Averna and Fernet-Branca, to the growing category of regional, American-made amaro. Starting with a rip-roaring tour of bars, cafés, and distilleries in Italy, amaro’s spiritual home, Brad Thomas Parsons—author of the James Beard and IACP Award–winner Bitters—will open your eyes to the rich history and vibrant culture of amaro today. With more than 100 recipes for amaro-centric cocktails, DIY amaro, and even amaro-spiked desserts, you’ll be living (and drinking) la dolce vita.

Theoretical Foundations of Corporate Finance Book Description :

Corporate finance is the area of finance that studies the determinants of firms' values, including capital structure, financing, and investment decisions. Although there are several excellent texts in corporate finance, this is the first to focus on the theoretical foundations of the subject in a consistent and integrated way at the Ph.D. level. In addition to a textbook for advanced graduate students, it can also serve as a general reference to researchers and sophisticated practitioners. The material presented is carefully selected with an eye to what is essential to understanding the underlying theory, ensuring that this text will remain useful for years to come. The book is divided into three parts. The first section presents the basic principles of valuation based on the absence of arbitrage, including a discussion of the determinants of the optimal capital structure based on the seminal results of Modigliani and Miller. The second section discusses the implications of agency problems and information asymmetries to capital structure, giving particular attention to payout policy and to debt contract design. The concluding portion presents different ways of restructuring capital, including going public, going private using stock repurchases or leveraged buyouts, and mergers and acquisitions. Each chapter includes exercises that vary in difficulty, with suggested solutions provided in an appendix. This book will assuredly be the standard doctoral- and professional-level explication of corporate finance theory and its appropriate applications.

Odd Woman Out Book Description :

After enduring two broken marriages, a failed suicide attempt, and adulterous affairs, author R. Renee Amaro sets out to discover the true purpose of her life. In August 2000, she pulls up roots in America and spreads her wings across five continents-from Africa to Asia and Europe to Australia. Odd Woman Out: Black Girl Abroad is a fish-out-of-water tale about life outside of the United States as experienced by an African American woman, specifically in Taiwan where Amaro teaches English as a second language. During her adaptation to her new life and her new self, Amaro rises and falls several times but is continually able to pick up the pieces and move on. Through self-love, determination, and a long walk with God, Amaro overcomes her past life of promiscuity, adultery, self-hatred, and fear. From dancing with Zulu warriors and sitting in the prison cell of Nelson Mandela to living, loving, and learning in Taiwan, Odd Woman Out will stimulate thought, provoke change, and challenge the status quo in the minds of individuals-especially young African Americans.

Background and Aims:About half of acute stroke patients treated with mechanical thrombectomy (MT) do not show clinical improvement despite successful recanalization. Early arterial reocclusion (EAR) may be one of the causes that explain this phenomenon. We aimed to analyze the predictors and clinical relevance of EAR after successful MT.Methods:A consecutive series of patients treated with MT from a prospective single-center acute stroke reperfusion registry were retrospectively reviewed. Specific inclusion criteria for this analysis were 1/ successful recanalization after MT (mTICI=2b-3) and 2/ the availability of a pre-treatment perfusion-CT and follow-up MRI. EAR was defined as TIMI=0-1 in the follow-up Angio-MRI. Multivariate regression models were used to analyse the predictors of reocclusion, as well as its association with infarct growth, final infarct volume and clinical outcome at 90 days (ordinal distribution of the modified-Rankin scale scores).Results:Overall, 197 patients fulfilled inclusion criteria, from whom 11 (6%) suffered EAR. In univariate analysis, EAR was associated with non-cardioembolic etiology (p=0.04), better pre-treatment collaterals (p=0.045), and recanalization beyond 4.5h from stroke onset (p=0.05). According to outcome variables, EAR was associated with greater infarct growth (p=0.001), greater final infarct volume (p=0.002) and worse clinical outcome (p=0.019). In multivariate analysis controlled by confounders (including age, baseline NIHSS/glucose/collaterals, cardioembolism and time to recanalization), EAR was independently associated to worse clinical outcome (OR=4.6; 95%CI=1.3-15.8; p=0.016).Conclusions:Although uncommon, EAR might hamper the benefits of successful recanalization after MT. Further study is warranted to assess strategies aimed to prevent this complication.

Agent Based Computing Book Description :

Multi-agent systems (MAS) often deal with complex applications that require distributed problem solving. In many applications, the individual and collective behaviour of the agents depends on the observed data from distributed sources. This book discusses a number of research issues concerned with the use of Multi-Agent Systems for Data Mining (MADM), also known as agent-driven data mining. In addition, optimisation algorithms are very important in modern research and industrial areas. This book examines one multi-population co-genetic algorithm (MPAGA) with double chain-like agent structure to realise parallel optimisation, combining chain-like agent structure and multi-population parallel searching. Furthermore, this book proposes an efficient modular artificial neural network (ANN) architecture for the intelligent decision making of a robot in a robot soccer systems with different team configurations. Other chapters review the use of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology with supply chain agents and then analyse the security requirements, describe how to design and implement a large-scale multi-agent simulation software, and provide a framework of evacuation simulation for urban hazards such as flooding with effective agent's interaction tools with other agents and the physical environment.
