2. Housing and Financial Stability

Housing and Financial

Pengarang : Alan Brener

Imprint : London : Routledge, 2020
Mukasurat : 273


The book addresses the relationship between housing policy, credit and financial instability in light of the recent global financial crisis and proposes both short and long-term solutions. Although it is not known where the next crisis will come from, history suggests that it will have credit and property at its source. Thus, it is important that the UK and other countries look more broadly at what should be done in terms of policies, institutions and tools to make the housing market and mortgage lenders more resilient against a future crisis. This book sets out a number of workable proposals. Central to this work are questions relating to the quantitative macroprudential measures, such as loan-to-value (LTV) and debt-to-income (DTI) restrictions, and whether these can be used to any significant extent in western democracies and, if employed, whether they are likely to be effective. In particular, the book questions the political legitimacy of their use and the potential consequences for the institutions, such as central banks, promulgating such policies. Preserving financial stability in very uncertain market conditions is of key importance to central bankers and other regulators, and macroprudential policy is a rapidly growing subject for both legal and economics study.
This book will therefore be of interest to financial professionals, policymakers and academics.

4. BIM for Facility Managers

BIM Facility

Pengarang : Paul Teicholz

Imprint : New Jersey : Wiley, 2013
Mukasurat : 332

Sinopsis :

A practical look at extending the value of Building Information Modelling (BIM) into facility management. It is from the world's largest international association for professional facility managers
Building owners and facility managers are discovering that Building Information Modelling (BIM) models of buildings are deep reservoirs of information that can provide valuable spatial and mechanical details on every aspect of a property. When used appropriately, this data can improve performance and save time, effort, and money in running and maintaining the building during its life cycle. It can also provide information for future modifications. For instance, a BIM could reveal everything from the manufacturer of a light fixture to its energy usage to maintenance instructions.
BIM for Facility Managers explains how BIM can be linked to facility management (FM) systems to achieve very significant life-cycle advantages. It presents guidelines for using BIM in FM that have been developed by public and private owners such as the GSA. There is an extensive discussion of the legal and contractual issues involved in BIM/FM integration. It describes how COBie can be used to name, capture, and communicate FM-related data to downstream systems. There is also extensive discussion of commercial software tools that can be used to facilitate this integration.
This book features six in-depth case studies that illustrate how BIM has been successfully integrated with facility management in real-life projects at:
• Texas A&M Health Science Centre
• USC School of Cinematic Arts
• MathWork's new campus
• Xavier University
• State of Wisconsin Facilities
• University of Chicago Library renovation

BIM for Facility Managers is an indispensable resource for facility managers, building owners and developers alike.

Mukasurat : 306

Sinopsis :

Around the world, hundreds of thousands of supervisors and leaders provide coaching, supervision and leadership to staff every day of the year, yet the majority of supervisors have never attended formal training about how to be an effective supervisor and leader.

Supervision is fundamental to ensure that employees meet the requirements of their role, feel supported and valued, and engage in ongoing growth and development.

8. Successful Ph.D, Anyone?

Successful PhD

Pengarang : Ng Siew Imm

Imprint : Serdang : UPM, 2019
Muka surat : 132

Sinopsis :
When we first wrote Ph.D anyone?, we were motivated by the desire to share our own Ph.D. experiences with you. Our first version, Ph.D anyone? Was based on essential topics for doctoral students, topics that we considered as important survival skills needed as a Ph.D student. We were pleased to hear from our readers how our book had helped them in their own Ph.D journey and how much it had impacted them. Motivated by the acceptance of our first book, we decided to embark on this second book, Successful Ph.D, Anyone? Showcases five completion stories of our own students; their difficulties, joys and how they succeeded in their Ph.D journeys. We felt it was essential to have our students share their experiences to inspire readers so that they know the Ph.D is not an impossible journey, if we have the right attitude, motivation and strategies.
As you read each chapter, you will probably get a sense of the hard work, sacrifices and challenges encountered during each student’s journey.
Having said that, each of them graduated and have gone on to become successful people in their own chosen fields. Our students who have written their experiences consist of two full-time Ph.D students, a working adult and two international students. These students were carefully chosen for their diverse experiences; for we believe no two Ph.D journeys are ever alike. We started each chapter with the student’s experiences which is followed by our observations as their supervisors.

Sinopsis :

Risau berat badan naik? Bawa pinggan makanan anda kepada para dietitian ini!

Dietitian paling takut apabila orang lain tengok pinggan atau apa yang kami suap ke dalam mulut. Ya lah, kami beriya beri nasihat jangan makan begitu begini, tiba-tiba kami pula makan banyak?

Kadangkala orang lain yang bawa lari pinggan apabila kami datang. Takut kami pula yang kira kalori mereka. Segan dan risau kami kata, “Hmmm.. makan macam ni, bila nak kurus?” Walaupun ada saja yang tak hairan kalau kami membebel - hari ini makan, esok lusa diet lah, kan?

Kebanyakan masa, kami juga seperti anda. Makan apabila lapar, makan macam-macam apabila ada jamuan, tidak merungut apa yang dihidang biarpun tidak sihat atau berkalori tinggi.

Kami mungkin tidak dapat lari daripada mencongak kalori yang ada pada makanan kerana telah terbiasa berbuat demikian. Jangan risau, kami lakukan diam-diam sahaja.

Tetapi, jika anda datang untuk dapatkan nasihat pemakanan dan gaya hidup sihat, kami tidak akan ragu memberinya. Cuma, kalau kami kenal anda lebih rapat, mungkin sambil nasihat itu kami cubit-cubit lemak di perut anda sikit.
