Every endeavour is covered by some fault, just as ?re is covered by smoke. Therefore one should not give up the work born of his nature, even if such work is full of fault. – The Bhagvad-Gita (18.48) This book is the outcome of the research and developmentcontributions of partners from three different continents, Asia, Europe, America, coming from universities, research centers, industrial partners and SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprise), all of them collaborating in MAGNET (My Adaptive Personal Global Net) and MAGNET Beyond project supported by European Commission within the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). The project was focusing on a secure user-centric approach developingsecure Personal Networks in multi-network,multi-device, and multi-user environments. The innovative concept of Personal Network (PN), which was introduced and developed in MAGNET, ?nds in this book the ?rst con?rmation of the success that the future of wireless communications is bound to achieve. The importance of this book is not only related to being the ?rst work on PNs, it also gives an overview of operation of a big project, like MAGNET, and in fact the organisation of the book re?ects how then project itself has been structured.
Magnetism is a force that attracts some substances toward others. All magnets
have a north and a south pole. Only opposite ends of magnets attract, so north
ends are attracted to south ends. Like ends push away from, or repel, each other.

Electrical and magnetic forces are so much a part of our everyday lives, that we don’t often think about how they work or how they are related. Before digital music players and eBook readers were commonplace, though, scientists put a lot of effort into discovering just what these forces were and how to harness their energy in ways that would make life easier. Through their experimentation, they discovered the connection between electrical and magnetic forces. They found ways to bring electricity to people who wanted it. Today, we benefit from these discoveries, but there are always new things to discover! Whether you try the experiments and activities in this book for fun or for a science fair project, you’ll get an up-close look at the forces of electricity and magnetism. Enjoy each of the shocking activities in this book as you discover the pull of science!

Real Stories of Nursing Research: The Quest for Magnet Recognition demonstrates how direct care nurses in clinical settings can overcome their fear and conduct nursing research studies that impact and improve patient care. Highlighting research in Magnet-designated hospitals located in all types of settings, this reference includes studies that have used quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-method designs. This text takes real nurses stories and their research abstracts and shows that staff nurses really can do research. Including helpful hints from experts like librarians, statisticians, and IRB reviewers who show the reader how to make the research journey smoother, Real Stories of Nursing Research addresses overcoming fears of research and is an essential text for any nurse or hospital seeking magnet status.

The Encyclopedia of Deception examines lying from multiple perspectives drawn from the disciplines of social psychology, sociology, history, business, political science, cultural anthropology, moral philosophy, theology, law, family studies, evolutionary biology, philosophy, and more. From the “little white lie,” to lying on a resume, to the grandiose lies of presidents, this two-volume reference explores the phenomenon of lying in a multidisciplinary context to elucidate this common aspect of our daily lives. Not only a cultural phenomenon historically, lying is a frequent occurrence in our everyday lives. Research shows that we are likely to lie or intentionally deceive others several times a day or in one out of every four conversations that lasts more than 10 minutes. Key Features: More than 360 authored by key figures in the field are organized A-to-Z in two volumes, which are available in both print and electronic formats. Entries are written in a clear and accessible style that invites readers to explore and reflect on the use of lying and self-deception. Each article concludes with cross references to related entries and further readings. This academic, multi-author reference work will serve as a general, non-technical resource for students and researchers within social and behavioral science programs who seek to better understand the historical role of lying and how it is employed in modern society.
