Can women have meaningful careers in tech? Are diversity efforts in Silicon Valley failing? Should women avoid working for technology companies? Alana Karen was annoyed every time she saw the latest headline questioning women's survival in tech. She pictured a new graduate deciding on her career and only having one-sided articles to help make her decision. She saw colleagues roll their eyes at books about C-level women in tech and heard jokes about how inaccessible those stories sounded. She wondered how women could feel like they belonged if they didn't see themselves reflected in the media. Inspired by women she knows in tech—women with diverse backgrounds, education, and ambitions—she wrote The Adventures of Women in Tech to fill that gap. A twenty-year tech company veteran and leader, Alana Karen brilliantly and systematically replaces what we think we know about women in tech with more than eighty women's stories of what it's honestly like to join, lead, and thrive in today's top technology companies. The Adventures of Women in Tech delves into why we join tech, the challenges we face, and the skills and support we need to succeed and stay in an often challenging environment. In twelve chapters filled with intimate stories, insights, and advice from women working in technology companies and start-ups, Alana Karen demonstrates that we all belong in tech.
Such are the under-handed (but always extremely serious) ways of the ultra-modern generation of educated hi-tech criminals—. CHAPTER EIGHT (INFLAMMABLE REAL ESTATE) Judy Sibling had been hanging.
Author: Gary White
Publisher: Xlibris Corporation
Now, Judy Sibling was a downright mess (but a totally survivable one), and with absolute certainty (at times) an altogether delightful mess at that ! On a good day she might just luck out and put on a matching pair of socks, (and in this book we shall also talk extensively about her not so good days----). But Judy Sibling was a genius at some things, such as lawerin' and finding missing persons. As a down-right awesome sleuth, no equal existed to match her positive percentage regardless of how haphazard her efforts would appear to be to any outside observers. For the complete enjoyment of this exciting story, you need to be informed that Judy Sibling graduated from law school at the rather tender young age of 18, after six years of intensive study at the prestigious Tennvalina University. Judy was by far the youngest (and also the sharpest) student ever to graduate from Tennvalina University and she did so with honors (after being awarded a full scholarship from Realsmart High School), it is fitting to say, the most notable high school in the entire area. Needless to say her family and very many friends were extremely proud of her and all were anxious to see the actual improvements to the world they correctly imagined could happen upon this sharp, attractive little female's exciting entrance into adult-hood----! You are in for many exciting surprises as Judy is constantly getting herself into(and back out of----!) situations you never even dreamed imaginable----! But it had been positively the worst year of Judy Sibling's career. She had desperately tried (but with only a certain degree of success) to defend one of her former high school class mates Henry Strongdorf in a second degree murder trial that simply, absolutely, refused to go their way. The problem was, although Henry had professed to be completely innocent of the matter, the gun allegedly used to commit the murder in question had no doubt been discovered by the state investigators to be under the front seat of poor Henry Strongdorf's pick-up truck, and although Henry's fingerprints were actually never found on the weapon, the barrel of the of the pistol was covered with dried blood that proved to be of the same type as the blood type of the deceased! Helen Riffraf's mutilated body (or, a least what was left of it) had been found at the bottom of a deep ravine about 15 miles from town. Stray dogs had made a point to chew both her ears off and there was but a hole where one of her eyes used to be. Pieces of half-rotten flesh were all that was left to cover her internal organs, while the length of time that the carcass (for quite obvious reasons) remained in that particular location had contributed such a negative impact on the locally surrounding air quality that it had become nearly impossible to breath in the area without noticeably gasping for that non- existent breath of fresh air. (I wonder if the city morgue stinks half as bad) ?

What does it take to lead and manage your company’s tech? Becoming an effective IT leader and manager presents a host of challenges—from anticipating emerging technologies, to managing relationships with senior executives, vendors, and employees, to communicating with the board. A good IT leader must also be a strong business leader. This book—now thoroughly updated with a new preface by the authors and current tech details and terminology—invites you to accompany new CIO Jim Barton as he steps up to leadership at his company. You’ll get a deeper understanding of the role of IT in your own organization as you see Jim struggle through a tough first year, handling (and fumbling) all kinds of management challenges. Although fictional, the scenarios are based on the authors’ long experience working with real-life companies across industries and sectors. The Adventures of an IT Leader is both an insightful story and an instructive guidebook. You can read it from beginning to end or treat it as a series of cases, skipping around to different chapters that address your most pressing needs. (For example, if you need to learn about crisis management and security, read chapters 10–12.) You can also test yourself and think about how to use the book’s lessons in your own company by reading the authors’ “Reflection” questions at the end of each chapter. This book is your indispensable manual for IT management and leadership, no matter what business you’re in.

After three years under the thumb of a cretinous boss who’s sucked all the joy out of working a 9-to-5 job, twenty-eight-year-old Kendall Whitney has had enough. She flees San Francisco, her annoying roommates, and her overbearing mother, and takes refuge in Bozeman, Montana, where it feels like the big sky’s the limit. Safely ensconced in her best friend’s guest room, she promptly launches a three-pronged plan: to live alone for the first time in her life, develop a successful graphic design career, and figure out what she wants in a relationship. She embarks upon Operation Kendall Independence, only to realize that she doesn’t know the first thing about adulting. Hangovers, homemaking, freelancing, friendships, and modern cowboys bent on monogamy . . . it’s enough to send a single girl running for the gin & tonics. With self-deprecating charm and endearing humor, Adventures of an Urban Homesteader is the raucous and heartwarming diary of a young woman who’s determined to seek stability and security on her own terms, and to make her own safety net in case she fails.

Author: Howard J. Wiarda
Professor Howard J. Wiarda, a leading academic expert on foreign policy, comparative politics, and international affairs, is the author of more than eighty books. Wiarda has traveled to many of the world’s most troubled and exciting places. Now, in the more personal accounts of his global travels, he recalls his foreign research adventures, the countries visited, and the people he met and interviewed along the way. Wiarda’s new four-volume set, Exploring the World: Adventures of a Global Traveler, details his travels and foreign adventures since 2006. In these travel books, he tells the stories that lie behind the research, offers his impressions of the countries and regions he has explored, and considers how and why some have been successful and others not. Volume I in this new series tells the story of Wiarda’s 2010 circumnavigation of the globe. Volume II focuses on Europe and the continued importance of European regionalism—despite the bumper stickers advertising “Europe Whole and Free.” Volume III deals with Latin America and questions whether the region is really as democratic as we would like it to be. Volume IV provides Wiarda’s analysis of Asia’s economic miracles while also recounting his recent visits to the Persian Gulf and his assessment of modernization and development in the Islamic world. Insightful and entertaining, Wiarda’s travel narratives offer commentary on important and interesting sites all over the world.
