அம்பானி: Untersuchungen Zum Vokabular Der Galloromania Aufgrund Von Nichtliterarischen Texten; Mit Besonderer Berücksichtigung Mittellatein. Urkunden (Beihefte Zur Zeitschrift Für Romanische Philologie Ser. #115)

by என். சொக்கன்

"இந்தியாவில் தொழில்முனைவோராக விரும்புபவர்களுக்கெல்லாம் முக்கிய ஆதர்சமாகத் திகழ்பவர் திருபாய் அம்பானி. மிகச் சாதாரணப் பின்னணியிலிருந்து தொடங்கி படிப்படியாக முன்னேறி ரிலையன்ஸ் எனும் மாபெரும் சாம்ராஜ்ஜியத்தை உருவாக்கியவர் திருபாய் அம்பானி. துணிமணி வியாபாரத்திலிருந்து ஆரம்பித்து, அதன்பின் துணிகளைத் தயாரித்து, பின் பாலியெஸ்டர் வியாபாரம், பாலியெஸ்டர் உற்பத்தி, அதன்பின் பாலியெஸ்டர் உற்பத்திக்கான மூலப்பொருள்களை உருவாக்குவது, அந்த மூலப்பொருள்களின் ஆதாரமான பெட்ரோலிய சுத்திகரிப்பு, அங்கிருந்து பெட்ரோலையே தரையிலிருந்தும், கடலுக்கு அடியிலும் தோண்டுவது என்று படிப்படியாக, பார்த்துப் பார்த்து தன் தொழிற்சாலைகளைக் கட்டியவர். அம்பானி 70 mm அளவுக்கு விரிந்த திரையில் கனவு கண்டார். பிரம்மாண்டமாக மட்டுமே யோசித்தார். அதன் விளைவுதான் இன்று ரிலையன்ஸ் இந்தியாவிலேயே மிகப்பெரிய தனியார் நிறுவனமாக உள்ளது. ஆனால் இத்தனையும் அதிர்ஷ்டத்தால் வந்ததல்ல. உழைப்பால், தைரியத்தால், முயற்சியால் வந்தது. அதே சமயம் காலத்துக்குத் தகுந்தாற்போல அரசுகளையும் அதிகாரிகளையும் தனக்குச் சாதகமாக வளைத்துக் கொள்வதன் மூலமும் அரசு உத்தரவுகளை தன் வசதிக்கேற்றவாறு புரிந்துகொள்வதன் மூலமும் அம்பானி தன் நிறுவனத்தை வளர்த்தார். அம்பானி, தன்னை எதிர்ப்பவர்களை அவர்களது ஆயுதங்களைக் கொண்டே மழுங்கடித்தார். இன்றைய காலகட்டத்தில் திருபாய் அம்பானியின் சில செயல்கள் நமக்கு ஏற்புடையதாக இருக்காது. ஆனால் அவரது விடாமுயற்சி, தன்னம்பிக்கை, இந்தியா மீதான பற்று, சக ஊழியர்கள் மீதான மரியாதை, தொழில் மீதான ஆழ்ந்த பக்தி ஆகியவை இன்றைக்கும் நம் அனைவருக்கும் வழிகாட்டக் கூடியவை. இந்தப் புத்தகம் அம்பானியின் வாழ்க்கை வரலாறு மட்டுமல்ல, கடந்த நாற்பதாண்டுகளில் இந்தியாவின் தொழில்துறையின் வரலாறும் இதில் அடங்கியிருக்கிறது. எந்தவொரு சுய முன்னேற்ற நூலைக் காட்டிலும் பன்மடங்கு அதிகமான பலனை இந்தப் புத்தகத்தினைப் படிப்பதன் மூலம் ஒருவர் அடைய முடியும். இது நிஜமான வாழ்க்கை, வெறும் ஏட்டுச் சுரைக்காய் அல்ல." கிழக்கு பதிப்பகம் | Kizhakku pathippagam

100 Betriebe für Ressourceneffizienz: Band 2 – Praxisbeispiele und Erfolgsfaktoren

by Joa Bauer Marlene Preiss Christian Haubach Hannes Spieth Institute for Industrial Ecology INEC Mario Schmidt

In weiteren 50 Unternehmensbeispielen wird vorgestellt, wie man in der Produktion Energie und Material einsparen kann. Das Projekt wurde in Baden-Württemberg mit der Unterstützung der Wirtschaftsverbände und der Landesregierung durchgeführt und ist ein Leitprojekt der Landesstrategie Ressourceneffizienz. Die Beispiele dienen gleichermaßen Mitarbeitern aus Unternehmen, Fachleuten und Hochschulangehörigen, die wissen wollen, wo man in der Praxis ansetzen kann, wenn Ressourceneffizienz umgesetzt werden soll.

100 Betriebe für Ressourceneffizienz - Band 1: Praxisbeispiele aus der produzierenden Wirtschaft

by Christian Haubach Joa Bauer Hannes Spieth Mario Schmidt Institute for Industrial Ecology INEC

Das Buch stellt ca. 50 aktuelle Beispiele vor, wie in produzierenden Betrieben Energie und Materialien eingespart werden können. Sie dienen zur Anschauung, mit welchen Maßnahmen man in modernen Unternehmen noch Potenziale für Ressourceneffizienz schöpfen kann. Das Buch richtet sich an Praktiker in Betrieben und Beratungsunternehmen, ist aber auch für den Hochschulbereich als praxisnahe Einführung in das Thema Ressourceneffizienz geeignet.Die eingesetzten Materialien machen fast 43 Prozent der Kosten eines durchschnittlichen Industriebetriebs in Deutschland aus. Die Personalkosten liegen dagegen bei nur 22 Prozent, die Energiekosten sogar bei nur 2 Prozent. Wenn ein Unternehmen Kosten sparen will, so muss es vor allem den Materialeinsatz berücksichtigen und ressourceneffizient produzieren. Das entlastet gleichzeitig die Umwelt und verringert die Abhängigkeit von knappen Rohstoffen.Die Umsetzung von Ressourceneffizienz ist nicht ganz einfach. Zwar gibt es in der Produktion zahlreiche Ansatzpunkte, oftmals bei Prozessinnovationen oder in der Produktentwicklung. Jedoch veröffentlichen nur wenige Unternehmen ihre Maßnahmen und Einsparpotenziale. Damit fehlen in der Praxis oft Lernbeispiele, von denen aber einige explizit in diesem Werk aufgeführt sind.Wie man sieht, kann Ressourceneffizienz in der Produktion und bei Produkten auch als Erfolgsfaktor für viele Unternehmen betrachtet werden. In dem Projekt 100 Betriebe für Ressourceneffizienz zeigen engagierte Unternehmen aus Baden-Württemberg ihre Lösungen. Durchgeführt wurde das Projekt von einem kompetenten Team der Hochschule Pforzheim, der Universität Stuttgart und der Landesagentur Umwelttechnik BW. Unterstützt haben es führende Wirtschaftsverbände in Baden-Württemberg.

by Lynda Gratton Andrew Scott

What will your 100-year life look like?Does the thought of working for 60 or 70 years fill you with dread?

12 Essential Abilities Of Extraordinary People

Just because we're not born with them, it doesn't mean we can't learn to become that way. If you want to become an effective person, regardless of where you stand in life's continuum – a college student, a working professional, an entrepreneur or a CEO- this book is for you. It will be you mentor; explaining, demonstrating and guiding you through each of this trait which make great people. If you want to work on yourself – go for it.

1759: The Year Britain Became Master of the World

by Frank McLynn

Although 1759 is not a date as well known in British history as 1215, 1588, or 1688, there is a strong case to be made that it is the most significant year since 1066. In 1759 - the fourth year of the Seven Years War - the British defeated the French in arduous campaigns on four continents and also achieved absolute mastery of the seas.Drawing on a mass of primary materials - from texts in the Vatican archives to oral histories of the North American Indians - Frank McLynn shows how the conflict between Brtiain and France triggered the first 'world war', raging from Europe to Africa; the Caribbean to the Pacific; the plains of the Ganges to the Great Lakes of North America. It also brought about the War of Independence, the acquisition by Britain of the Falkland Islands and, ultimately, the French Revolution.

The 1772–73 British Credit Crisis (Palgrave Studies in the History of Finance)

by Paul Kosmetatos

Nowadays remembered mostly through Adam Smith’s references to the short-lived Ayr Bank in the Wealth of Nations, the 1772-3 financial crisis was an important historical episode in its own right, taking place during a pivotal period in the development of financial capitalism and coinciding with the start of the traditional industrialisation narrative. It was also one of the earliest purely financial crises occurring in peacetime, and its progress showed an impressive geographical reach, involving England, Scotland, the Netherlands and the North American colonies. This book uses a variety of previously unpublished archival sources to question the bubble narrative usually associated with this crisis, and to identify the mechanisms of financial contagion that allowed the failure of a small private bank in London to cause rapid and severe distress throughout the 18th century financial system. It re-examines the short and turbulent career of the Ayr Bank, and concludes that its failure was the result of cavalier liability management akin to that of Northern Rock in 2007, rather than the poor asset quality alleged in existing literature. It furthermore argues that the Bank of England’s prompt efforts to contain the crisis are evidence of a Lender of Last Resort in action, some thirty years before the classical formulation of the concept by Henry Thornton.

1991 How P. V. Narasimha Rao Made History: How P.v. Narasimha Rao Made History

by Sanjaya Baru

P. V. Narasimha Rao (or PV as he was popularly known) has been widely praised for enabling the economic reforms that transformed the country in 1991. From the vantage point of his long personal and professional association with the former prime minister, bestselling author Sanjaya Baru shows how PV’s impact on the nation’s fortunes went way beyond the economy. This book is an insider’s account of the politics, economics and geopolitics that combined to make 1991 a turning point for India. The period preceding that year was a difficult one for India: economically, due to the balance of payments crisis; politically, with Rajiv Gandhi’s politics of opportunism and cynicism taking the country to the brink; and globally, with the collapse of the Soviet Union, its ally.It was in this period that the unheralded PV assumed leadership of the Indian National Congress, took charge of the central government, restored political stability, pushed through significant economic reforms and steered India through the uncharted waters of a post-Cold War world. He also revolutionized national politics, and his own Congress party, by charting a new political course, thereby proving that there could be life beyond the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty. 1991 marked the end of an era and the beginning of another. It was the year that made PV. And it was the year PV made history.

2052: A Global Forecast for the Next Forty Years

by Jorgen Randers

Forty years ago, The Limits to Growth study addressed the grand question of how humans would adapt to the physical limitations of planet Earth. It predicted that during the first half of the 21st century the ongoing growth in the human ecological footprint would stop-either through catastrophic "overshoot and collapse"-or through well-managed "peak and decline." So, where are we now? And what does our future look like? In the book 2052, Jorgen Randers, one of the coauthors of Limits to Growth, issues a progress report and makes a forecast for the next forty years. To do this, he asked dozens of experts to weigh in with their best predictions on how our economies, energy supplies, natural resources, climate, food, fisheries, militaries, political divisions, cities, psyches, and more will take shape in the coming decades. He then synthesized those scenarios into a global forecast of life as we will most likely know it in the years ahead. The good news: we will see impressive advances in resource efficiency, and an increasing focus on human well-being rather than on per capita income growth. But this change might not come as we expect. Future growth in population and GDP, for instance, will be constrained in surprising ways-by rapid fertility decline as result of increased urbanization, productivity decline as a result of social unrest, and continuing poverty among the poorest 2 billion world citizens. Runaway global warming, too, is likely. So, how do we prepare for the years ahead? With heart, fact, and wisdom, Randers guides us along a realistic path into the future and discusses what readers can do to ensure a better life for themselves and their children during the increasing turmoil of the next forty years.
