The fifth book in the “outstanding” (Romantic Times) Elemental Assassin fantasy series featuring Gin Blaco, who by day is a waitress at a Tennessee BBQ joint, and by night is a tough female assassin. Old habits die hard for assassins. And I plan on murdering someone before the night is through. Killing used to be my regular gig, after all. Gin Blanco, aka the Spider, assassin-for-hire. And I was very, very good at it. Now, I’m ready to make the one hit that truly matters: Mab Monroe, the dangerous Fire elemental who murdered my family when I was thirteen. Oh, I don’t think the mission will be easy, but turns out it’s a bit more problematic than expected. The bitch knows I’m coming for her. So now I’m up against the army of lethal bounty hunters Mab hired to track me down. She also put a price on my baby sister’s head. Keeping Bria safe is my first priority. Taking Mab out is a close second. Good thing I’ve got my powerful Ice and Stone magic—and my irresistible lover, Owen Grayson—to watch my back. This battle has been years in the making, and there’s a good chance I won’t survive. But if I’m going down, then Mab’s coming with me . . . no matter what I have to do to make that happen.

The war had been going on for nearly a year and the Sirian Empire had a huge advantage in personnel and equipment. Earth needed an edge. Which was where James Mowry came in. If a small insect buzzing around in a car could so distract the driver as to cause that vehicle to crash, think what havoc one properly trained operative could wreak on an unuspecting enemy. Intensively trained, his appearance surgically altered, James Mowry is landed on Jaimec, the ninety-fourth planet of the Sirian Empire. His mission is simple: sap morale, cause mayhem, tie up resources, wage a one-man war on a planet of eighty million. In short, be a wasp. First published in 1957, WASP is generally regarded as Eric Frank Russell's best novel, a witty and exciting account of a covert war in the heart of enemy territory.

On the Foundations of Dynamic Coalitions

Dynamic Coalitions denote a temporary collaboration between different entities to achieve a common goal. A key feature that distinguishes Dynamic Coalitions from static coalitions is Dynamic Membership, where new members can join and others can leave after a coalition is set. This thesis studies workflows in Dynamic Coalitions, by analyzing their features, highlighting their unique characteristics and similarities to other workflows, and investigating their relation with Dynamic Membership. For this purpose, we use the formal model of Event Structures and extend it to faithfully model scenarios taken as use cases from healthcare. Event Structures allow for workflows modeling in general, and for modeling Dynamic Membership in Dynamic Coalitions as well through capturing the join and leave events of members. To this end, we first extend Event Structures with Dynamic Causality to address the dynamic nature of DCs. Dynamic Causality allows some events to change the causal dependencies of other events in a structure. Then, we study the expressive power of the resulting Event Structures and show that they contribute only to a specific kind of changes in workflows, namely the pre-planned changes. Second, we present Evolving Structures in order to support ad-hoc and unforeseen changes in workflows, as required by the use cases. Evolving Structures connect different Event Structures with an evolution relation which allows for changing an Event Structure during a system run. We consider different approaches to model evolution and study their equivalences. Furthermore, we show that the history of a workflow should be preserved in our case of evolution in Dynamic Coalitions, and we allow for extracting changes from an evolution to support Process Learning. Third, to capture the goals of DCs, we equip Evolving Structures with constraints concerning the reachability of a set of events that represents a goal. The former extensions allow for examining the changes and evolutions caused by members, and examining members’ contributions to goal satisfaction, through their join and leave events. Finally, we highlight many modeling features posed as requirements by the domain of our Dynamic-Coalition use cases, namely the healthcare, which are independent from the nature of Dynamic Coalitions, e.g. timing. We examine the literature of Event Structures for supporting such features, and we identify that the notion of Priority is missing in Event Structures. To this end, we add Priority to various kinds of Event Structures from the literature. Furthermore, we study the relation between priority on one side, and conjunctive causality, disjunctive causality, causal ambiguity and various kinds of conflict on the other side. Comparing to Adaptive Workflows, which are concerned with evolutions of workflows that occur as a response to changes, e.g. changes in the business environment or exceptions, this thesis shows that Dynamic-Coalition workflows are not only Adaptive but also Goal-Oriented. Besides, it adds one extra trigger for evolution in workflows—unique to Dynamic Coalitions—namely the join of new members who contribute to goal satisfaction in a Dynamic Coalition. Finally the thesis contributes to bridging the gap in modeling between theory and domain experts by supporting step-by-step modeling applied regularly in healthcare and other domains. Dynamische Koalitionen (DKen) bezeichnen eine temporäre Kollaboration zwischen verschiedenen Entitäten zum Erreichen eines gemeinsamen Ziels. Ein Schüsselaspekt, welcher dynamische Koalitionen von statischen Koalitionen unterscheidet ist die dynamische Mitgliedschaft, durch die neue Mitglieder hinzu- kommen und andere die Koalitionen verlassen können, nachdem sie entstanden ist. Diese Arbeit studiert Workflows in dynamische Koalitionen durch eine Analyse ihrer Eigenschaften, das Herausstellen ihrer einzigartigen Charakteristika und Ähnlichkeiten zu anderen Workflows und durch eine Untersuchung ihrer Beziehung zu dynamischer Mitgliedschaft. In diesem Sinne nutzen wir das formales Model der Ereignisstukturen (ESen) und erweitern es, um Fallstudien aus der Medizin angemessen zu modellieren. ESen erlauben sowohl eine generelle Workflow Modellierung als auch eine Darstellung von Eintritt- und Austrittereignissen von Mitgliedern. Zu diesem Zweck erweitern wir ESen zuerst um Dynamische Kausalität, um die dynamische Natur von DKs abzubilden. Dynamische Kausalität erlaubt bestimmten Ereignissen die kausalen Abhängigkeiten anderer Ereignissen in einer Struktur zu verändern. Dann untersuchen wir die Ausdrucksstärke der resutierenden ESen und zeigen, dass sie nur eine spezifische Art der Veränderung abbilden, die sogenannten vorgeplanten Veränderungen. Als Zweites präsentieren wir Evolving in ESen um ad-hoc- und unvorhergesehene Veränderungen zu unterstützen, wie es durch unsere Fallstudien benötigt wird. Evolving in ESen verbinden verschiedene ESen mit einer Relation, welche eine Veränderung einer ES während eines Ablaufes erlaubt. Wir ziehen verschiedene Ansätze der Modelevolution in Betracht und untersuchen ihre Äquivalenzen. Des Weiteren zeigen wir, dass in unserem Fall der Evolution in DKen die Geschichte eines Workflows erhalten bleiben muss und wir ermöglichen das Extrahieren von Veränderungen einer Evolution, um Process Learning zu unterstützen. Drittens: Um die Ziele von DKen abzubilden, fügen wir den Evolving in ESen mit Einschränkungen bezüglich der Erreichbarkeit einer Menge von Ereignissen hinzu, welche das Ziel repräsentieren. Die genannten Erweiterungen erlauben es sowohl die Änderungen und Evolutionen, die vom Mitgliedern verursacht werden als auch die Beiträge der Mitglieder zur Zielerreichung durch deren Entritt- und Austrittereignissen zu untersuchen. Schlussendlich, stellen wir viele Modellierungseigen- schaften dar, welche von den DK-Fallstudien aus der Medizin benötigt werden und unabhängig von der Natur der DKen sind, wie z.B. Timing. Wir untersuchen die Literatur zu ESen bezüglich Unterstützung für solche Eigenschaften und stellen fest, dass der Begriff Priorität in ESen fehlt. Daher fügen wir Priorität zu verschiedenen ESen aus der Literatur hinzu. Des Weiteren untersuchen wir die Beziehungen von Priorität auf zu Konjunktiver Kausalität, disjunktiver Kausalität, kausal Uneindeutigkeit und verschiedenen Formen von Konflikt. Im Vergleich zu Adaptive Workflows, welche sich mit der Evolution von Workflows beschäftigt, die als Reaktion auf Veränderungen entsteht, wie z.B. Veränderungen im Business Environment oder Exceptions, zeigt diese Arbeit das DKen nicht nur adaptiv sondern auch zielorientiert sind. Außerdem fügt sie einen zusätzlichen Auslöser für Evolution in Workflows hinzu, welcher ausschließlich DKen eigen ist: das Hinzukommen neuer Mitglieder welche zur Ziel- erreichung der DK beitragen. Zuletzt trägt diese Arbeit bei, die Lücke der Modellierung zwischen der Theorie und den Domänenexperten zu überbrücken, in dem sie eine Schritt-für-Schritt Modellierung unterstützt, welche regelmäßig in der Medizin und anderen Bereichen angewand wird.

A young woman becomes paralyzed and must become a brainship¾and find her Brawn, her human soul mate, so that she can discover a cure for her illness. Tia Cade is a headstrong, smart, and very normal girl until she contracts a terrible illness that leaves her with the bare semblance of life. Tia's only hope: to become the oldest person ever to train to be one of the legendary star travelers, the brainships. But now that Tia is free of her ravaged body, there still remains the task of finding the right partner to be her Brawn, the human element every brainship requires. And when the disease that debilitated Tia threatens thousands more, selecting a Brawn who is her true soul mate may allow Tia to find the origin of the terrible plague¾and perhaps even a cure.

Now a major motion picture starring Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike, Toni Collette, and Christopher Plummer The international bestseller with more than two million copies sold “Once upon a time there was a young psychiatrist called Hector who was not very satisfied with himself. . . . And so he decided to take a trip around the world, and everywhere he went he would try to understand what made people happy or unhappy.” Hector travels from Paris to China to Africa to the United States, and along the way he keeps a list of observations about the people he meets. Combining the winsome appeal of The Little Prince with the inspiring philosophy of The Alchemist, Hector’s journey around the world and into the human soul is entertaining, empowering, and smile-inducing—as winning in its optimism as it is wise in its simplicity.
