Privacy on the Ground Book Review:

An examination of corporate privacy management in the United States, Germany, Spain, France, and the United Kingdom, identifying international best practices and making policy recommendations. Barely a week goes by without a new privacy revelation or scandal. Whether by hackers or spy agencies or social networks, violations of our personal information have shaken entire industries, corroded relations among nations, and bred distrust between democratic governments and their citizens. Polls reflect this concern, and show majorities for more, broader, and stricter regulation—to put more laws “on the books.” But there was scant evidence of how well tighter regulation actually worked “on the ground” in changing corporate (or government) behavior—until now. This intensive five-nation study goes inside corporations to examine how the people charged with protecting privacy actually do their work, and what kinds of regulation effectively shape their behavior. And the research yields a surprising result. The countries with more ambiguous regulation—Germany and the United States—had the strongest corporate privacy management practices, despite very different cultural and legal environments. The more rule-bound countries—like France and Spain—trended instead toward compliance processes, not embedded privacy practices. At a crucial time, when Big Data and the Internet of Things are snowballing, Privacy on the Ground helpfully searches out the best practices by corporations, provides guidance to policymakers, and offers important lessons for everyone concerned with privacy, now and in the future.

The View from the Ground Book Review:

An anthology spanning six decades of on-the-scene journalism from “one of the most eloquent witnesses of the twentieth century” (Bill Buford, Granta). For nearly sixty years, Martha Gellhorn traveled the globe to report on the tumult and extremity of life in the twentieth century. The View from the Ground, as Gellhorn explains, “is a selection of articles written during six decades; peace-time reporting. That is to say, the countries in the background were at peace at the moment of writing; not that there was peace on earth.” Included here are accounts of America during the Depression, Israel and Palestine in the 1950s, post-Franco Spain, protests at the White House, domestic life in Africa, and Gellhorn’s return to Cuba after a forty-one-year absence—among many other topics. Informed by the horrors of fascism in Spain and Germany, the modern terror in Central America, and by the courage of those who stand up to the thugs both in an out of government, The View from the Ground is a singular act of testimony that, like its companion volume, The Face of War, is “an eloquent, unforgettable history of a chaotic century” (San Francisco Chronicle).

Down in the Ground Book Review:

Dying is not merely the domain of the dead; it is a shared experience. What remains after someone has passed are the memories, that reflections of the past and those who have passed, and the challenges everyone faces in the wake of loss. Down in the Ground is a collection of short, flash fiction stories that examine the ways in which individuals deal with grief and loss, not as morbid reactions but as attempts to understand what they are experiencing. From the cradle to the grave, Down in the Ground is a study in the complex creativity we use to address grief and to challenge death so that life can triumph.

A Hole in the Ground Owned by a Liar Book Review:

A divorced shop teacher buys a Colorado gold mine sight unseen in this raucous novel from the screenwriter of Doc Hollywood and The Manchurian Candidate. Lee Garrison, a high school shop teacher in Evergreen, Colorado, managed to survive his messy divorce only to find himself in a full-on midlife crisis. Looking for a way to distract himself on weekends and the now painfully long summer vacation, Lee buys a gold mine off the internet—a real, honest-to-God mine, complete with tall tales of riches, a history of disappointment, and a couple of Pakistani-by-way-of-Jackson-Hole prospectors willing to kill for its contents. With the frequently unwanted help of a band of locals, Lee becomes a weekend warrior, attempting to work the mine and studiously avoid the daily grind of his life. There are the Pakistanis, of course, along with his brother Grant, just released from prison, who is trying in his dubious way to pull Lee from his midlife funk. And then there’s his ex-wife Lorraine, her slick boyfriend Stan, and the lovely yet mysterious Rayna—the first woman Lee has wanted to date since his divorce. In Daniel Pyne’s uproarious style, A Hole in the Ground Owned by a Liar is part mystery and part gold-infused tall tale with a lively cast of odd-ball characters and one highly unexpected payout.

The Measurement of Heat Flow in the Ground and the Theory of Heat Flux Meters Book Review:

The behavior of heat flux meters has been examined by experimental, electrical analogue and numerical means. The results indicate the more general applicability of the flux meter equation first proposed by Philip (1961) for the special case of spheroidal meters, provided certain precautions are taken. The purely geometric parameter appearing in this equation has been related to meter shape and a functional connection has been suggested. It is proposed that pairs of thermal sensors be used to monitor thermal conductivity continuously and the use of nonuniform 'focusing' heat flux meters is recommended in cases where the physical cross section of a thermopile should remain small compared to the resultant thermal cross section. Finally a number of calibration techniques are reported, including the use of a novel radiation enclosure in which meters are temporarily tested as net radiometers, (Author).

Follow Me to Ground Book Review:

Palm Beach Post, BuzzFeed, and LitHub’s Most Anticipated of 2020 A haunted, surreal debut novel about an otherworldly young woman, her father, and her lover that culminates in a shocking moment of betrayal—one that upends our understanding of power, predation, and agency. Ada and her father, touched by the power to heal illness, live on the edge of a village where they help sick locals—or “Cures”—by cracking open their damaged bodies or temporarily burying them in the reviving, dangerous Ground nearby. Ada, a being both more and less than human, is mostly uninterested in the Cures, until she meets a man named Samson. When they strike up an affair, to the displeasure of her father and Samson’s widowed, pregnant sister, Ada is torn between her old way of life and new possibilities with her lover—and eventually comes to a decision that will forever change Samson, the town, and the Ground itself. Follow Me to Ground is fascinating and frightening, urgent and propulsive. In Ada, award-winning author Sue Rainsford has created an utterly bewitching heroine, one who challenges conventional ideas of womanhood and the secrets of the body. Slim but authoritative, Follow Me to Ground lingers long after its final page, pulling the reader into a dream between fairy tale and nightmare, desire and delusion, folktale and warning.
