Coma-reimagined for the twenty-first century from the undisputed king of medical thrillers. Lynn Peirce, a fourth-year medical student at South Carolina´s Mason-Dixon University, thinks she has her life figured out. But when her otherwise healthy boyfriend, Carl, enters the hospital for routine surgery, her neatly ordered life is thrown into total chaos. Carl fails to return to consciousness after the procedure, and an MRI confirms brain death. Devastated by Carl´s condition, Lynn searches for answers. Convinced there´s more to the story than what the authorities are willing to reveal, Lynn uses all her resources at Mason-Dixon-including her initially reluctant lab partner, Michael Pender-to hunt down evidence of medical error or malpractice. What she uncovers, however, is far more disturbing. Hospitals associated with Middleton Healthcare, including the Mason-Dixon Medical Center, have unnervingly high rates of unexplained anesthetic complications and patients contracting serious and terminal illness in the wake of routine hospital admissions. When Lynn and Michael begin to receive death threats, they know they´re into something bigger than either of them anticipated. They soon enter a desperate race against time for answers before shadowy forces behind Middleton Healthcare and their partner, Sidereal Pharmaceuticals, can put a stop to their efforts once and for all.

A guide on the OSSEC Host-based Intrusion Detection system. It shows how to install and configure OSSEC on the operating system of your choice and provide detailed examples to help prevent and mitigate attacks on your systems. This book is the definitive guide on the OSSEC Host-based Intrusion Detection system and frankly, to really use OSSEC you are going to need a definitive guide. Documentation has been available since the start of the OSSEC project but, due to time constraints, no formal book has been created to outline the various features and functions of the OSSEC product. This has left very important and powerful features of the product undocumented...until now! The book you are holding will show you how to install and configure OSSEC on the operating system of your choice and provide detailed examples to help prevent and mitigate attacks on your systems. -- Stephen Northcutt OSSEC determines if a host has been compromised in this manner by taking the equivalent of a picture of the host machine in its original, unaltered state. This ´´picture´´ captures the most relevant information about that machine´s configuration. OSSEC saves this ´´picture´´ and then constantly compares it to the current state of that machine to identify anything that may have changed from the original configuration. Now, many of these changes are necessary, harmless, and authorized, such as a system administrator installing a new software upgrade, patch, or application. But, then there are the not-so-harmless changes, like the installation of a rootkit, trojan horse, or virus. Differentiating between the harmless and the not-so-harmless changes determines whether the system administrator or security professional is managing a secure, efficient network or a compromised network which might be funneling credit card numbers out to phishing gangs or storing massive amounts of pornography creating significant liability for that organization. Separating the wheat from the chaff is by no means an easy task. Hence the need for this book. The book is co-authored by Daniel Cid, who is the founder and lead developer of the freely available OSSEC host-based IDS. As such, readers can be certain they are reading the most accurate, timely, and insightful information on OSSEC. Nominee for Best Book Bejtlich read in 2008!

Joel Sternfeld verdanken wir nicht weniger als die Wiederentdeckung der Farbe für die Kunstfotografie. Ab Ende der 1970er Jahre machte er unter dem Begriff ´´New Color´´ von sich reden. Mit der Kamera zog Sternfeld durch Städte und Landschaften und dokumentierte in der Tradition des unauffälligen Beobachters die Eigenarten und die sozialen Entwicklungen seines Landes. Dieser Katalog zur Ausstellung im Museum Folkwang bietet einen Gesamtüberblick über sein Werk, das sich konsequent mit Phänomenen des eigenen Landes auseinandersetzt. Joel Sternfeld, geboren 1944 in New York, gilt als einer der bedeutendsten Fotografen der Gegenwart. Im Steidl Verlag sind erschienen: Treading on Kings (2002), American Prospects (2003, Reprint), Sweet Earth (2006), When it changed (2007), Oxbow Archive (2008), Walking the High Line (2009) und iDubai (2010). Ausstellung: 16. Juli bis 23. Oktober 2011, Museum Folkwang, Essen
This is Arthur Elgort s first comprehensive book, showing his world-renowned fashion imagery alongside his personal work. The book spans Elgort s five-decade career and illustrates his longevity as an emulated fashion photographer. His lively and casual shooting style is significantly influenced by a lifelong love of music and dance, particularly jazz and ballet. Elgort s 1971 debut in British Vogue created a sensation in the fashion world where his soon-to-be iconic snapshot style and emphasis on movement and natural light transcended norms of fashion photography. Elgort subsequently rose to fame working for such distinguished magazines as American, French and Italian Vogue, Interview, GQ, Life and Rolling Stone; and shooting advertising campaigns for fashion labels including Chanel, Valentino and Yves Saint Laurent. Arthur Elgort was born in 1940 and raised in New York City. He attended Stuyvesant High School, and Hunter College where he initially studied painting before switching to photography, which he took to naturally. Elgort s numerous books include Personal Fashion Photographs (1983) and the bestseller Models Manual released during the supermodel boom in 1994. Elgort has also directed two films, Texas Tenor: The Illinois Jacquet Story (1992), and the documentary Colorado Cowboy (1993) which portrays legendary cowboy Bruce Ford and won the award for Best Cinematography at the Sundance Film Festival in 1994. In 2011 Elgort received the Board of Directors Special Tribute Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
