Timekeeping is an essential activity in the modern world, and we take it for granted that our lives are shaped by the hours of the day. Yet what seems so ordinary today is actually the extraordinary outcome of centuries of technical innovation and circulation of ideas about time. Shaping the Day is a pathbreaking study of the practice of timekeeping in England and Wales between 1300 and 1800. Drawing on many unique historical sources, ranging from personal diaries to housekeeping manuals, Paul Glennie and Nigel Thrift illustrate how a particular kind of common sense about time came into being, and how it developed during this period. Many remarkable figures make their appearance, ranging from the well-known, such as Edmund Halley, Samuel Pepys, and John Harrison, who solved the problem of longitude, to less familiar characters, including sailors, gamblers, and burglars. Overturning many common perceptions of the past-for example, that clock time and the industrial revolution were intimately related-this unique historical study will engage all readers interested in how 'telling the time' has come to dominate our way of life.

The ladder to success is a lot easier to climb without the excess baggage of flabby arms, chests, and waist. Furthermore, the increased stress that arises from increasing business responsibilities can be more readily overcome by a man who is in peak shape than one who isn’t. Just as hard work in the business world can be its own reward, so is working out. In fact, shaping up not only ensures robust health and a longer life, but it improves a man’s ability to bring about and enjoy business success by looking good, feeling good, and making good impressions on business colleagues. The Businessman’s Minutes-a-Day Guide To Shaping Up is more than another book of exercise and diet tips. It addresses the problems a businessman faces in finding time to exercise, in setting goals for training, and in changing eating habits that make gaining or losing weight difficult. The Businessman’s Minutes-a-Day Guide To Shaping Up includes: • exercise programs developed for a variety of needs and body structures • knowledgeable recommendations on training equipment and on training at home, at a gym, or on the road • training programs for improved sports performance • expert advice on the prevention and treatment of training injuries, jet lag, stress and anxiety, and even eye strain • a primer on the basics of nutrition, proper food combining, and vitamin and mineral supplementation • an account of one businessman’s training under Dr. Columbu’s direction that provides valuable insights on sticking to a training program, managing time, and setting goals

Healthcare systems have been in a state of flux for a number of years now due to increasing digitalization. Medicine itself is also facing new challenges, and how to maximize the possibilities of artificial intelligence, whether digitalization can help to strengthen patient orientation, and dealing with the issue of data quality and completeness are all issues which require attention, creativity and research. This book presents the proceedings of the 64th annual conference of the German Association for Medical Informatics, Biometry and Epidemiology (GMDS 2019), held in Dortmund, Germany, from 8 - 11 September 2019. The theme of this year’s conference is Shaping Change – Creative Solutions for Innovative Medicine, and the papers presented here focus on active participation in shaping change while ensuring that good scientific practice, evidence and regulation are not lost as a result of innovation. The book is divided into 8 sections: biostatistics; healthcare IT; interoperability - standards, classification, terminology; knowledge engineering and decision support; medical bioinformatics and systems biology; patient centered care; research infrastructure; and sociotechnical systems / usability and evaluation of healthcare IT. The book will be of interest to all those facing the challenges posed by the ongoing revolution in medicine and healthcare.

Shaping Modern Shanghai provides a new understanding of colonialism in China through a fresh examination of Shanghai's International Settlement. This was the site of key developments of the Republican period: economic growth, rising Chinese nationalism and Sino-Japanese conflict. Managed by the Shanghai Municipal Council (1854-1943), the International Settlement was beyond the control of the Chinese and foreign imperial governments. Jackson defines Shanghai's unique, hybrid form of colonial urban governance as transnational colonialism. The Council was both colonial in its structures and subject to colonial influence, especially from the British empire, yet autonomous in its activities and transnational in its personnel. This is the first in-depth study of how this unique body functioned on the local, national and international stages, revealing the Council's impact on the daily lives of the city's residents and its contribution to the conflicts of the period, with implications for the fields of modern Chinese and colonial history.

This is an unusual study of the way in which New Zealand television presents local news. It takes a well-known and often controversial annual event, the Waitangi Day commemorations, and explores in considerable detail how this has been handled from 1990 to 1995. As well as giving an illuminating picture of how television news is produced, it also offers insights into the way in which Maori issues are treated by mainly Pakeha news teams and the powerful if often unconscious shaping of attitudes towards race relations and biculturalism presented by television news programmes.

How computer professionals and communities can work together to shape sociotechnical systems that will meet society's challenges. Information and computer technologies are used every day by real people with real needs. The authors contributing to Shaping the Network Society describe how technology can be used effectively by communities, activists, and citizens to meet society's challenges. In their vision, computer professionals are concerned less with bits, bytes, and algorithms and more with productive partnerships that engage both researchers and community activists. These collaborations are producing important sociotechnical work that will affect the future of the network society. Traditionally, academic research on real-world users of technology has been neglected or even discouraged. The authors contributing to this book are working to fill this gap; their theoretical and practical discussions illustrate a new orientation—research that works with people in their natural social environments, uses common language rather than rarefied academic discourse, and takes a pragmatic perspective. The topics they consider are key to democratization and social change. They include human rights in the "global billboard society"; public computing in Toledo, Ohio; public digital culture in Amsterdam; "civil networking" in the former Yugoslavia; information technology and the international public sphere; "historical archaeologies" of community networks; "technobiographical" reflections on the future; libraries as information commons; and globalization and media democracy, as illustrated by Indymedia, a global collective of independent media organizations.
