  • ISBN : 1481261827
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

Tipping Points as evidenced in global events are, in many ways, influenced by media. DATA MINING for predicting and analyzing world events. This just released, ground-breaking book: DATA MINING: PREDICTING TIPPING POINTS by Dr Philip Gordon, Ph.D, details three case studies which were selected on the basis of common Tipping Point Attributes: Each involved media contagiousness and stickiness during their development and, each arrived at a "dramatic moment in time," which could only be characterized by the phenomenon of Tipping Points. Three recent case studies explore the leading edge technologies of DATA MINING and the theory of TIPPING POINTS: The first case study, the 2008 Presidential Campaign of Barack Obama was chosen to examine a narrower scope and timeframe for the application of the analysis. In contrast to the second case study, the International Financial Crisis of 2007-2010, which involves a broader data study period to identify trends and more complex issues. The third study, Climate Change was included as consideration because the data mining research and analysis revealed critical relationships between Media Impact and Global Events. As the issue of Climate Change is still evolving, Dr Gordon provides a Data Mining and Tipping Point Theory methodology for analyzing and predicting our planets' most pressing Global Tipping Points. Review Comments: "The genius of the formulation of DATA MINING: PREDICTING TIPPING POINTS is that it takes explicit account of the role of social media and the internet at facilitating bifurcations and promoting dynamical instability. In effect, we have trimmed a few feet of tail off the kite. As a reader, I was informed and educated as to the factors which conspire to influence stability / instability in complex social systems. ...the book does a good job of making sense of past bifurcations and dynamical instabilities, namely political instability, our perception of global climate change, and international economic crises...my compliments on a truly insightful Media Tipping Points." -Prof. Dr. (med.) Peter S. Geissler, A.B., B.S., M.S., M.Phil., Ph.D. (Yale) M.A., M.Eng., M.S., Ph.D., M.S., M.D., M.Phil.(Cantab) "A truly fascinating book that (teaches) a whole new way of thinking about major events and how the media can influence them. - Being a political junkie I was heavily into the media coverage of the 2008 Obama election and the global financial meltdown both via TV and the blogosphere. I now find myself looking for the tipping points and stickiness factors as other key events unfold. Usually, I have trouble reading theoretical books but this one was an easy read and if you want supporting data then the references are there. This could become a solid reference for those in the media who truly want to understand what they are reporting. Highly recommended and I look forward to Dr. Gordon's ongoing analysis of (future) events." -Dr. Ralph Moorhouse, Ph.D. Political junkie, Expert: natural polymers for industries "The application of Data Mining and Tipping Point Theory to media and global events, particularly the financial crisis and climate change, is a fascinating one." -Dr. Serge Besanger, PhD Expert, International Monetary Fund ..".very interesting application (of the Tipping Point Theory)...potential opportunity for predicting other global events, i.e.: Egyptian crisis and perhaps, even terrorism activities." -Dr. Adam AJLANI, PhD Professor, Sciences Politic and Political Consultant, France TV1

Book Description :

The Tipping Point By: Justin Roberts Ishwar Dhoni, a diplomat with a pleasantly undemanding job in twenty-seventh century Europe, is sent on assignment to the Earth Administration’s outpost on the North American continent after getting too close to his superior’s daughter. In North America, Ishwar finds himself on the outskirts of a civilization that collapsed five hundred years earlier. Through his reading and discussions with others at the outpost, he discovers a society that began to worship both God and guns with equal fervor — and continues to do so. As Ishwar and his new love interest, the archaeologist Carmen Loure, venture away from the outpost to learn more about the civilization, they encounter civilians trying to flee North America — and also the people hunting them. The Tipping Point is both a gripping thriller and a thoughtful analysis of the United States’ present-day gun culture.

  • ISBN : 1401929249
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

We solve our problems based upon the way we think of ourselves and the world. From peak energy and peak debt to failing economies and the realities of climate change, everyday life is showing us where we’ve outgrown the thinking of the past. It’s also showing us where big changes in the world mean big changes in our lives. Through dramatic shifts in our jobs, our relationship to money, our health, and even our homes, it’s clear that our lives are changing in ways we’ve never seen, to a degree that we’re not prepared for, and at speeds that we’ve never experienced. It’s also clear that the thinking of the past is no longer enough to meet our needs today. A new, healthy, and sustainable world is emerging, and our ability to accept what it offers begins with our willingness to: • Honestly acknowledge the facts of what we’re up against. • Embrace the new discoveries that reveal the role of cooperation in nature and human communities. • Create resilience in our lives, families, and communities based upon five proven and sustainable principles. • Through easy-to-understand science and the wisdom traditions of the past, The Turning Point identifies the extremes in the world that are reshaping our lives, the keys to thrive in the midst of the transformation, and the strategies to get us there.
