An anthology of asemic handwriting( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Anthology of Asemic Handwriting is the first book-length publication to collect the work of a community of writers on the edges of illegibility. Asemic writing is a galaxy-sized style of writing, which is everywhere yet remains largely unknown. For human observers, asemic writing may appear as lightning from a storm, a crack in the sidewalk, or the tail of a comet. But despite these observations, asemic writing is not everything: it is just an essential component, a newborn supernova dropped from a calligrapher's hand. Asemic writing is simultaneously communicating with the past and the future of writing, from the earliest undeciphered writing systems to the xenolinguistics of the stars; it follows a peregrination from the preliterate, beyond the verbal, finally ending in a postliterate condition in which visual language has superseded words. An Anthology of Asemic Handwriting is compiled and edited by Tim Gaze from Asemic magazine and Michael Jacobson from The New Post-Literate blog

The money trail : finding, following, and freezing terrorist finances by Matthew Levitt( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While mounting an individual terrorist attack costs relatively little, money remains of critical importance for terrorist organizations. Without it, terrorist groups would be incapable of maintaining the broad infrastructure necessary to run an effective organization. As such, finding means to quickly and securely raise, launder, transfer, store, and gain access to funds remains a top priority for all terrorist groups, from al-Qaeda and its various globally oriented affiliates to regionally focused groups like Hamas and Hizballah. Terrorist finance is also an area of rapid change, as terrorist organizations seek actively to evade governmental scrutiny and take advantage of emerging technologies. The shift in the nature of the global terrorist threat -- from a centralized al-Qaeda to a franchise model -- has had an impact on terrorist financing as well. Until the September 11 attacks, combating terrorist financing was not a strategic priority for the U.S. government. But in the wake of the attacks, the United States dramatically heightened its focus on combating terrorist financing, employing an aggressive, multifaceted response in which it designated and froze the assets of numerous terrorist financiers and support networks, prosecuted individuals and entities for providing material support, and increased its focus on "following the money" as a means of collecting financial intelligence. The U.S. government also made a variety of structural and organizational changes to better address this key concern. The United States was hardly alone in its new focus on terrorist financing: many other countries followed suit. The European Union established terrorist blacklists, among other actions, and a number of the Persian Gulf countries put regulatory regimes in place to govern this arena. The private sector's role -- and its importance -- in the global efforts to combat terrorist financing also increased. While the United States led the international charge on these issues, two international organizations, the United Nations and the Financial Action Task Force, also deserve credit for the scale of the global response since September 11. Despite this progress, a number of obstacles remain, handicapping international efforts to combat terrorist financing

David Markham was a star, beloved by many, but understood by few. Now his story has fallen into the hands of the younger brother who spent his whole life in David's shadow. But for Alex, this is not a tribute. It's a chance to tell the world the real story-- the dark story; the one no one knows. The one no one wants to know.--From publisher description

Terrorist dropouts : learning from those who have left by Michael Jacobson( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For policymakers, understanding what motivates members of terrorist or extremist organizations to leave is critical to designing effective programs to encourage them to make the break. Nonetheless, several patterns emerge that should give policymakers cause for optimism. First, it is clear that many of those who have left terrorist and extremist organizations have done so without being harmed or even threatened. And second, these organizations are often hit hard when leadership defections take place. A close study of the numerous cases presented in this study shows several ways in which the U.S. government can encourage and even accelerate the dropout phenomenon. The recommendations given here can be broken down into three broad areas: public messaging, partnerships with nongovernmental actors, and counterradicalization program development

Law-Related Education and the Illinois Institute for Public Understanding about the Law by Michael Jacobson( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines the development of law-related education (LRE), discusses the extent of its implementation in rural Illinois, and describes the efforts made by the Illinois Institute for Public Understanding About the Law (IIPUAL) in bringing LRE to rural schools. The goals of LRE are to provide students with an understanding of the law and legal processes and to improve their citizenship skills by equipping them with knowledge of both their rights and responsibilities. Concerns about providing LRE in rural schools include geographic location and the inability of rural schools to pay for the programs. Nevertheless, rural youth have as many or more problems than urban youth and could benefit as much as urban youth from LRE. A survey conducted by the IIPUAL confirms the low status of LRE in rural schools. Administrators consistently commented that, if given the opportunity, their districts would make LRE a part of their curriculum. Other activities of the IIPUAL include establishing a library of LRE instructional materials available for loan to rural schools; implementation of satellite programming and seminars; and partnerships between Western Illinois University and rural schools in program implementation and teacher training. This report concludes that LRE programs contribute to the prevention of delinquent behavior in young people and help decrease recidivism rates for those already in juvenile detention. (LP)

CTC Sentinel. Volume 1, Issue, July 2008( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent months, there has been a spate of seemingly good news in the counter-terrorism arena, as former terrorist leaders and clerics have renounced their previous beliefs. Former Egyptian Islamic Jihad head Sayyid Imam al-Sharif (also know as Dr. Fadl), whose treatises al-Qaida often cited to justify its actions, has written a new book rejecting al-Qaida's message and tactics. Shaykh Salman bin Fahd al-Awda, an extremist cleric whose incarceration in the 1990s by the Saudis reported helped inspire Usama bin Ladin, "How much blood has been spilt? How many innocent people, children, elderly, and women have been killed ... in the name of al Qaeda?" in the United Kingdom, former members of the radical group Hizb al-Tahrir (also spelled Hizb-ut-Tahrir) established the Quilliam Foundation, which describes itself as "Britain's first Muslim counter-extremism think tank."
Food Scorecard by Michael F Jacobson( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The importance of establishing good eating habits in youth as a means for laying the foundation of health in later life is discussed. This booklet contains charts that list nutritional scores for many common foods. These scores are measures of the overall nutritional content and value of the foods. Foods receive points for protein; vitamins a, b-2 (riboflavin), b-3 (niacin), and c; iron and calcium; complex carbohydrates--starch, fiber, and naturally occurring sugars; and polyunsaturated fats. Foods lose points for high fat content, added sugar, cholesterol, and salt.
