This book provides an in-depth look at the life of one of country music's least recognized -- but most iconic and influential performers and business owners. Given unprecedented access to Tompall, his story is told through his own words and through the words of those who knew him best as the result of many lengthy interviews. In addition to providing never-before known information about Tompall, this book provides historical information about Nashville and gives a glimpse of what country music was like during the 1960s up to the 1990s. This book does not tell the story of a perfect person. Rather, it shares information about a very amazing man. If you are a "classic" or an "outlaw" country music fan this book is a must read. Even if you are not a country music fan, if you enjoy themes portraying one man's stand against the establishment you will not want to miss this highly acclaimed gem. Tompall often stood alone in his fight for artistic freedom for Nashville musicians in the 1970s and he paid the price. While many of his peers, like Waylon and Willie, were heavily promoted, Tompall fell by the wayside and became the "forgotten outlaw."

From former special agent in charge for the Office of Organized Crime and Labor Racketeering, Miami Organized Crime Strike Force and Secretary of Labor for the State of Florida Hugo D. Menendez comes an intriguing fiction that provides a true picture of illicit activities. Violation of Trust is a vivid portrayal of how organized crime individuals and organized crime connected labor union offi cers cooperate to embezzle union and health welfare funds to the disadvantage of union members and employers—as well as forcing unions on employees. Based on actual criminal investigations of Organized Crime and Labor Racketeering conducted by Mr. Menendez and members of his staff for the U. S. Department of Justice’s Miami Organized Crime Strike Force, this book follows the story of Giovanni Pelusa or “Pel” whose life changes forever when he became entangled in the world of organized crime and labor racketeering. From birth, Pel’s future had been predetermined. First, by his size and secondly, the infl uence his father’s profession had on him. Though he was a loving son and outwardly a decent individual, he was a born enforcer. He had no regard for the pain or even the death he infl icted on others. In trying to become his father, he became entangled in the world of organized crime and labor racketeering. Pel sold his services as other professional individuals sell theirs. His success in the field of muscle for the racketeers provided him with a measure of wealth. His height and strength turned out to be his undoing. Like a ghost, the tall man appeared to be present at many crime scenes. Trying to save himself by turning as an informer cost him dearly instead. His actions led to the unraveling of one of the largest organized crime and labor racketeering conspiracies in the United States.

Most textbooks on business process management focus on either the nuts and bolts of computer simulation or the managerial aspects of business processes. Covering both technical and managerial aspects of business process management, Business Process Modeling, Simulation and Design, Second Edition presents the tools to design effective business processes and the management techniques to operate them efficiently. New to the Second Edition Three completely revised chapters that incorporate ExtendSim 8 An introduction to simulation A chapter on business process analytics Developed from the authors’ many years of teaching process design and simulation courses, the text provides students with a thorough understanding of numerous analytical tools that can be used to model, analyze, design, manage, and improve business processes. It covers a wide range of approaches, including discrete event simulation, graphical flowcharting tools, deterministic models for cycle time analysis and capacity decisions, analytical queuing methods, and data mining. Unlike other operations management books, this one emphasizes user-friendly simulation software as well as business processes, rather than only manufacturing processes or general operations management problems. Taking an analytical modeling approach to process design, this book illustrates the power of simulation modeling as a vehicle for analyzing and designing business processes. It teaches how to apply process simulation and discusses the managerial implications of redesigning processes. The ExtendSim software is available online and ancillaries are available for instructors.

When faced with productivity problems in the workplace, engineers might call for better machines, and management might call for better-trained people, but ergonomists call for a better interface and better interaction between the user and the machine. Introduction to Ergonomics, 2nd Edition, provides a comprehensive introduction to ergonomics as the study of the relationship between people and their working environment. The author presents evidence from field trials, studies and experiments that demonstrate the value of ergonomics in making the workplace safer, more error resistant, and compatible with users' characteristics and psychological and social needs. Evidence for the effectiveness of each topic is incorporated throughout the book as well, which helps practitioners to make the case for company investment in ergonomics. In addition, the author outlines international standards for ergonomics that influence engineering and design and pave the way for a more precise form of practice. Extensively revised and updated, this second edition explains the main areas of application, the science that underpins these applications, and demonstrates the cost-effectiveness of implementing the applications in a wide variety of work settings.
