Message From FBI Director James B Comey: This past year, the FBI and its partners again addressed a wide range of national security and criminal threats. Together, we responded to numerous crisis incidents, such as the terrorist bombings of the Boston Marathon and the shootings at the Navy Yard in Washington, DC. We confronted a continued surge of cyber attacks against targets ranging from everyday citizens to our largest and most successful businesses. And we stopped those who would strike at the heart of our communities-from violent gangs and white-collar criminals to child predators and corrupt public officials. A glimpse of the challenges we faced-and what we achieved together-can be found in this latest edition of The FBI Story, our annual collection of news and feature articles from the Bureau's public website. Here you can read about some of our most successful recent major investigations and operations. These include a three-day nationwide sweep targeting child prostitution in which we identified and rescued more than 100 young victims and arrested more than 150 pimps; the rescue of a 5-year-old boy held captive in a heavily armed bunker in Alabama; and uncovering of the largest domestic bribery and bid-rigging scheme in the history of federal contracting cases-one that siphoned more the $30 million dollars of taxpayer money. This edition of the FBI Story also highlights some of the Bureau's remarkable capabilities. You will find a multi-part series on our elite Hostage Rescue Team-which marked its 30th anniversary this past year-and a feature on the Terrorist Explosive Device Analytical Center (TEDAC)-an FBI-established, multi-agency operation that celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2013.

Annotation The scope of the July 1999 conference covers Brownian ratchets, stochastic resonance, biomedicine, semiconductors, electronic devices, lasers, turbulence, and spectroscopy. Among the topics of the 66 papers are quantum stress tensor fluctuations, signatures of electron-electron interaction in nanoelectric device shot noise, the scale invariance of 1/f noise, Parrondo's paradoxical games, and what physicists can contribute to economics. Other topics include additive noise and noise-induced nonequilibrium phase transitions, entropy generation in computation and the second law of thermodynamics, high frequency noise modeling in MOSFETs, a percolative approach to resistance fluctuations, short time-scales in the Kramers problem, activated escape of driven systems, and numerical methods for systems excited by white noise.

An estimated 800,000 children are reported missing each year in the United States. Only one in 10,000 are found dead. Yet unsolved child murders are almost a daily occurrence--of nearly 52,000 juvenile homicides between 1980 and 2008, more than 20 percent remain open. Drawing on FBI reports, police and court records, and interviews with victims' families, this book provides details and evidence for 18 unsolved cases from 1956 to 1998.

Two subjects continue to fascinate people the Old West and a good mystery. This book explores and examines twenty-one of the Old West's most baffling mysteries, which lure the curious and beg for investigation even though their solutions have eluded experts for decades.
