Tattoo artist Geoff Gilchrest is convinced his life is some sort of cosmic joke. Why else would a hemophiliac also be a masochist? He's given himself more than one elbow bleed since puberty just doing what guys do when alone and bored, so forget about whips and chains. How many partners would contemplate playing with someone even a mild flogging could kill? Gallery owner Robin Brady knows he can deliver what Geoff needs: to be taken to the edge of danger but never beyond. But Robin came to Saugatuck to get away from the leather scene and heal from a betrayal by his former sub, so he's not sure he should get involved with Geoff. His ambivalence isn't helped by the fact that Geoff's unwillingness to communicate about his well-being hits Robin in some very raw places. Geoff's hemophilia isn't the obstacle he thinks it is. Instead, a lack of trust-on both their parts-is what could end them before they have a chance to begin.

An organization's risk culture is shaped by its willingness to take risks in pursuit of its strategic goals. A proactive, risk tolerant and risk aware culture is increasingly recognized as an essential component of successful organizations. Managing Cultural Risk addresses how to change attitudes and responses to the way in which risks are identified, assessed and controlled, and it explains how to determine how much risk taking is acceptable. Risk consultant John Humphries offers techniques for developing risk awareness and management, and he looks at how cross-cultural issues can also affect risk taking in multinational firms. Senior managers and risk practitioners will learn to analyze why different risk cultures work or don't work, consider the different emotional and underlying factors associated with an intolerant and risk averse culture and use plans, and assessments to diagnose and measure their risk culture. With in-depth case studies practical tools, Managing Cultural Risk explains how to adapt an organization's risk culture to suit its needs and objectives.

Recent progress in the field of recommender systems has led to increases in the accuracy and significant improvements in the personalization of recommendations. These results are being achieved in general by gathering more user data and generating relevant insights from it. However, user privacy concerns are often underestimated and recommendation risks are not usually addressed. In fact, many users are not sufficiently aware of what data is collected about them and how the data is collected (e.g., whether third parties are collecting and selling their personal information). Research in the area of recommender systems should strive towards not only achieving high accuracy of the generated recommendations but also protecting the user's privacy and making recommender systems aware of the user's context, which involves the user's intentions and the user's current situation. Through research it has been established that a tradeoff is required between the accuracy, the privacy and the risks in a recommender system and that it is highly unlikely to have recommender systems completely satisfying all the context-aware and privacy-preserving requirements. Nonetheless, a significant attempt can be made to describe a novel modeling approach that supports designing a recommender system encompassing some of these previously mentioned requirements. This thesis focuses on a multi-agent based system model of recommender systems by introducing both privacy and risk-related abstractions into traditional recommender systems and breaking down the system into three different subsystems. Such a description of the system will be able to represent a subset of recommender systems which can be classified as both risk-aware and privacy-preserving. The applicability of the approach is illustrated by a case study involving a job recommender system in which the general design model is instantiated to represent the required domain-specific abstractions.
