In today's organization, the old safety paradigms are no longer enough. Previous safety performance gains have leveled off and leaders are now tasked with navigating issues that their predecessors never anticipated: Stalling or increasing rates of high-severity injuries, greater technical complexity, increased legal accountability, and a looming shortage of qualified safety expertise, just to name a few. So where do we go from here? Global safety leader BST shares a new framework for creating comprehensive safety excellence: The Zero Index. Outlining 10 critical disciplines practiced by the world's safest organizations, the Zero Index provides a road map for safety as strategy and practical steps for getting from where you are now to the state where safety is "Who we are."

Metamaterials:Theory, Design, and Applications goes beyond left-handed materials (LHM) or negative index materials (NIM) and focuses on recent research activity. Included here is an introduction to optical transformation theory, revealing invisible cloaks, EM concentrators, beam splitters, and new-type antennas, a presentation of general theory on artificial metamaterials composed of periodic structures, coverage of a new rapid design method for inhomogeneous metamaterials, which makes it easier to design a cloak, and new developments including but not limited to experimental verification of invisible cloaks, FDTD simulations of invisible cloaks, the microwave and RF applications of metamaterials, sub-wavelength imaging using anisotropic metamaterials, dynamical metamaterial systems, photonic metamaterials, and magnetic plasmon effects of metamaterials.

The consumer price index (CPI) measures the rate at which the prices of consumer goods and services are changing over time. It is a key statistic for economic and social policymaking and has substantial and wide-ranging implications for governments, businesses, and households. This important and comprehensive Manual provides guidelines for statistical offices and other agencies responsible for constructing CPIs, and explains in-depth the methods that are used to calculate a CPI. It also examines the underlying economic and statistical concepts and principles needed for making choices in efficient and cost-effective ways, and for appreciating the full implications of those choices.

The 2016 Global Hunger Index (GHI) presents a multidimensional measure of national, regional, and global hunger, focusing on how the world can get to Zero Hunger by 2030. The developing world has made substantial progress in reducing hunger since 2000. The 2016 GHI shows that the level of hunger in developing countries as a group has fallen by 29 percent. Yet this progress has been uneven, and great disparities in hunger continue to exist at the regional, national, and subnational levels. Levels of hunger are still serious or alarming in 50 countries. The highest hunger levels are still found in Africa south of the Sahara and South Asia. Although GHI scores for these two regions have declined over time, the current levels remain close to the alarming category. Africa south of the Sahara has achieved the largest absolute improvement since 2000 and South Asia has also seen a sizable reduction—but the decline in hunger must accelerate in these regions if the world is to achieve Zero Hunger by 2030. The 2016 report, with an essay from United Nations Special Adviser David Nabarro, hails the new paradigm of international development proposed in the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which envisages Zero Hunger by 2030, as one goal among 17, in a holistic, integrated, and transformative plan for the world. To get to Zero Hunger while leaving no one behind, the 2016 GHI highlights the importance of identifying the regions, countries, and populations that are most vulnerable to hunger and undernutrition so progress can be accelerated there.

Leading experts explore the exotic properties and excitingapplications of electromagnetic metamaterials Metamaterials: Physics and Engineering Explorations givesreaders a clearly written, richly illustrated introduction to themost recent research developments in the area of electromagneticmetamaterials. It explores the fundamental physics, the designs,and the engineering aspects, and points to a myriad of excitingpotential applications. The editors, acknowledged leaders in thefield of metamaterials, have invited a group of leading researchersto present both their own findings and the full array ofstate-of-the-art applications for antennas, waveguides, devices,and components. Following a brief overview of the history of artificialmaterials, the publication divides its coverage into two majorclasses of metamaterials. The first half of the publicationexamines effective media with single (SNG) and double negative(DNG) properties; the second half examines electromagnetic band gap(EBG) structures. The book further divides each of these classesinto their three-dimensional (3D volumetric) and two-dimensional(2D planar or surface) realizations. Examples of each type ofmetamaterial are presented, and their known and anticipatedproperties are reviewed. Collectively, Metamaterials: Physics and EngineeringExplorations presents a review of recent research advancesassociated with a highly diverse set of electromagneticmetamaterials. Its multifaceted approach offers readers acombination of theoretical, numerical, and experimentalperspectives for a better understanding of their behaviors andtheir potentialapplications in components, devices, and systems.Extensive reference lists provide opportunities to exploreindividual topics and classes of metamaterials in greaterdepth. With full-color illustrations throughout to clarify concepts andhelp visualize actual results, this book provides a dynamic,user-friendly resource for students, engineers, physicists, andother researchers in the areas of electromagnetic materials,microwaves, millimeter waves, and optics. It equips newcomers witha basic understanding of metamaterials and their potentialapplications. Advanced researchers will benefit fromthought-provoking perspectives that will deepen their knowledge andlead them to new areas of investigation.

This book covers water quality indices (WQI) in depth – it describes what purpose they serve, how they are generated, what are their strengths and weaknesses, and how to make the best use of them. It is a concise and unique guide to WQIs for chemists, chemical/environmental engineers and government officials. Whereas it is easy to express the quantity of water, it is very difficult to express its quality because a large number of variables determine the water quality. WQIs seek to resolve the difficulty by translating a set of a large number of variables to a one-digit or a two-digit numeral. They are essential in communicating the status of different water resources in terms of water quality and the impact of various factors on it to policy makers, service personnel, and the lay public. Further they are exceedingly useful in the monitoring and management of water quality. With the importance of water and water quality increasing exponentially, the importance of this topic is also set to increase enormously because only with the use of indices is it possible to assess, express, communicate, and monitor the overall quality of any water source. Provides a concise guide to WQIs: their purpose and generation Compares existing methods and WQIs and outlines strengths and weaknesses Makes recommendations on how the indices should be used and under what circumstances they apply
