The primary objective in the ninth edition of Retailing Management is to inform students about the exciting new developments in the retail industry. Retailing has evolved into a high tech, global, growth industry. Retailers like Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Amazon, Starbucks, and Kroger are some of the most admired and sophisticated businesses in the world. The developments in the industry are providing challenging and rewarding opportunities for students interested in retailing careers and companies supporting the retail industry such as IBM, Procter & Gamble, and Google. In preparing this edition, the authors focused on five important developments: (1) the use of big data and analytical methods for decision making, (2) the application of social media and smart phones for communicating with customers and enhancing their shopping experience, (3) the issues involved in utilizing a mobile channel and providing a seamless multichannel experience for customers, (4) the engagement in corporate social responsibility activities - the consideration of society when making business decisions, and (5) the impact of globalization on the retail industry. We are pleased to announce the addition of Professor Dhruv Grewal, The Toyota Chair of Commerce and Electronic Business, and Professor of Marketing at Babson College to the Retailing Management author team. Dhruv brings years of academic experience to the project, as evidenced by dozens of retailing-related articles that he has co-authored. He also co-edited the Journal of Retailing from 2001 to 2007 with Michael Levy, a close colleague and collaborator for over 20 years.

Three scorching-hot tales of femdom domestic discipline! This scorching-hot bundle features three stories of femdom wives and domestic discipline! Included in the bundle: Natalia’s Nutcracking Lesson Natalia doesn´t think twice as she teaches an opportunistic mugger a lesson he will struggle to forget. The mugger had pinned Natalia´s husband against the wall, demanding his belongings, his power quickly diminished as Natalia´s nut crunching knee connected with his crotch. Natalia’s husband quickly becomes aroused at the power his wife held, and it´s not long before he is pushing his wife´s button. Hoping to feel the wrath of her knee first hand. Trampling the Bank Manager Tanya is shell-shocked at the bank manager’s decision to reject her loan application. The busty blonde is dressed for the ultimate persuasion, but instead of using her seductive tools for good, she instead uses them for evil. She forces the bank manager to the floor of his own office and proceeds to humiliate him, trampling across every inch of his body until he caves in and eventually submits to her loan request. Facesitting Bully Lisa can´t shake a stressful afternoon shopping after she was cut off by another driver. The reserved wife had kept her bullying past hidden from her husband. But when she finds her anger too much to contain, she finds her husband willingly turning into her volunteer as she itches to relieve her younger years of bullying and dominating men! 1.

For computer-security courses that are taught at the undergraduate level and that have as their sole prerequisites an introductory computer science sequence (e.g., CS 1/CS 2). A new Computer Security textbook for a new generation of IT professionals. Unlike most other computer security textbooks available today, Introduction to Computer Security, 1e does NOT focus on the mathematical and computational foundations of security, and it does not assume an extensive background in computer science. Instead it looks at the systems, technology, management, and policy side of security, and offers students fundamental security concepts and a working knowledge of threats and countermeasures with ?just-enough? background in computer science. The result is a presentation of the material that is accessible to students of all levels. Features + Benefits Accessible to the general-knowledge reader. Authors Goodrich and Tamassia recognize that prerequisites for an extensive background in CS and mathematics are not only unnecessary for learning but also arguably contribute to a reduction in enrollments and a shortage of computer-security experts. Therefore, the authors assume only the most basic of prerequisite knowledge in computing, making this text suitable for beginning computer science majors, as well as computer science minors and non-majors. Teaches general principles of computer security from an applied viewpoint. In this new text, the authors cover specific computer security topics while providing necessary material on the foundations of computing needed to understand these topics. As a result, students learn about vital computer security topics such as access control, firewalls, and viruses as well as a variety of fundamental computer-science concepts like algorithms, operating systems, networking, and programming languages. Topics covered include: o Common cyberattacks including viruses, worms, Trojan horses, password crackers, keystroke loggers, denial of service, spoofing, and phishing. o Techniques for identifying and patching vulnerabilities in machines and networks as well methods for detecting and repairing infected systems. o Fundamental building blocks of secure systems such as encryption, fingerprints, digital signatures and basic cryptographic protocols. o Human and social aspects of computer security, including usability, interfaces, copyright, digital rights management, social engineering, and ethical issues. A practical introduction that will prepare students for careers in a variety of fields. This text encourages students to think about security issues and to deploy security mechanisms early in designing software applications or in making software purchase/ deployment decisions. This skill will be appreciated by future employers--who may include corporations in the financial, healthcare and technology sectors--for whom the security of software applications is a critical requirement. The material in the text will also provide readers with a clear understanding of the security ramifications of using computers and the Internet in their daily lives (e.g., for online banking and shopping), as well as the potential threats to individual privacy (as seen in recent debates on electronic voting, for example), and possibly to democracy itself, that may arise from inappropriate use of computer security technology. Projects The authors provide a collection of creative, hands-on projects at three levels of difficulty that can be used both in computer security and computer security-related courses. A wide set of options will allow instructors to customize the projects to suit a variety of learning modes and lab resources. In each project, students are given a realistic, though simplified, version of a working system with multiple vulnerabilities and a list of allowed attack vectors. They may be asked to work in ?break-it? mode, which will require students to attack a system by developing exploits that take advantage of the discovered vulnerabilities, or they may be asked to work in ?fix-it? mode in which the student hardens the system by developing mechanisms for removing or mitigating the vulnerabilities. SUPPLEMENTS A collection of slide presentations created by the authors each suitable for a one-hour lecture, covering all the course topics. The presentations will include links to relevant resources on the web and will have extensive notes. The slide presentations have been created in a standard file format compatible

The story of the Internet begins in the early 1960s, when Russia launched Sputnik 1, the first artificial earth satellite. Afraid of the technological potential of the Russians, the United States Department of Defense formed the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), in order to develop US science and technology, and in particular its application in the military. In order to share information between different US military and research institutions, a network was established between different computers. A government agency called RAND developed the idea of a decentralized network - so if one location was attacked, the others would still be able to connect to each other. This network, known as ARPANET, was built by a company called BBN. The first email program was created by BNN in 1972.
