The groundbreaking follow-up to the New York Times bestseller The Great Stagnation The United States continues to mint more millionaires and billionaires than any country ever. Yet, since the great recession, three quarters of the jobs created here pay only marginally more than minimum wage. Why is there growth only at the top and the bottom? Renowned economist and bestselling author Tyler Cowen explains that high earners are taking ever more advantage of machine intelligence and achieving ever-better results. Meanwhile, nearly every business sector relies less and less on manual labor, and that means a steady, secure life somewhere in the middle—average—is over. In Average is Over, Cowen lays out how the new economy works and identifies what workers and entrepreneurs young and old must do to thrive in this radically new economic landscape.

Following the publicity around the Baby Peter tragedy in 2008, Cafcass (the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service) experienced a significant and sustained increase in demand for its services, receiving around 34 per cent more care cases in 2009-10 than the previous year. This led to chaos across the family justice system, and exposed Cafcass as an organisation that was not fit for purpose in dealing with the increased number of cases. Although judges in the family court are satisfied with the quality of the advice and reports that Cafcass's family court advisers provide, Cafcass has failed to get to grips with fundamental weaknesses in its culture, management and performance. Ofsted inspections reported an inadequate service. Allocation of cases to courts is slow, data held is inaccurate, sickness absence is unacceptably high and staff morale is low. Cafcass was only able to respond to the increase in demand through the use of temporary measures (duty allocations) which allowed it to do less work or to delay work on cases. Transitional arrangements, pending the outcome of the Family Justice Review, aim to continue reducing delays in allocating cases, while minimising the use of duty allocations. The Committee does not share the Department's confidence that the substantial organisational problems will be overcome by 2011. Strong leadership, renewed energy and focused committed are needed to sort this situation out if Cafcass is to become the world-class organisation it aspires to be.

How people perceive you at work has always been vital to a successful career. Now with the internet, social media, and the unrelenting hum of 24/7 business, the ability to brand and promote yourself is more crucial than ever. Schawbel shows readers how to navigate this new environment as an employee and lays out what managers are really looking for. Unveiling exclusive new research on the modern workplace, Schawbel breaks down the outdated mores of getting ahead and lays out a practical guide for building an outstanding career in an age of personal marketing, economic uncertainty and constant adaptation to new technologies. Shedding light on the disconnect between Gen Y and their managers, and revealing new findings on the most important skills required for management roles, professional development at work, networking, self-promotion, and social media's role in the workplace, Promote Yourself also gives readers the most critical skill necessary today: an awareness of their unique strengths and how to differentiate themselves.

Called the greatest storms on the planet, hurricanes of the North Atlantic Ocean often cause tremendous social and economic upheaval in the United States, Mexico, and the Caribbean. And with the increasing development of coastal areas, the impact of these storms will likely increase. This book provides a comprehensive analysis of North Atlantic hurricanes and what they mean to society. It is intended as an intermediary between hurricane climate research and the users of hurricane information. Topics include the climatology of tropical cyclones in general and those of the North Atlantic in particular; the major North Atlantic hurricanes, focusing on U.S. landfalling storms; the prediction models used in forecasting; and societal vulnerability to hurricanes, including ideas for modeling the relationship between climatological data and analysis in the social and economic sciences.
