As the Internet has become an integral tool of businesses, company policies on Internet usage have become as common as policies regarding vacation days or sexual harassment. A 2005 study by the American Management Association and ePolicy Institute found that 76% of companies monitor employees’ use of the Web, and the number of companies that block employees’ access to certain Web sites has increased 27% since 2001 (1). Unlike other company rules, however, Internet usage policies often include language authorizing companies to secretly monitor their employees, a practice that raises questions about rights in the Thesis asserts Orlov’s main point. workplace. Although companies often have legitimate concerns that lead them to monitor employees’ Internet usage—from expensive security breaches to reduced productivity—the benefits of electronic surveillance are outweighed by its costs to employees’ privacy and autonomy. While surveillance of employees is not a new phenomenon, electronic surveillance allows employers to monitor workers with Summary and long quotation are introduced with a signal phrase naming the author. unprecedented efficiency.

The need for Electronic Access Controls has grown manifold in the wake of threats becoming increasingly complex. The threat to the public and private properties are coming both - from the cross border and their own citizens. EACS market includes authentication systems, intruder alarm and perimeter security systems as they monitor as well as prevent malicious activities. The main differences are that authentication systems are placed in-line and able to actively prevent intrusions that are detected using intruder alarms and perimeter security systems. As a consequence, the EACS market is witnessing a positive growth and increased adoption across the globe. EACS market is estimated to reach $16.3 billion by 2017, growing at a CAGR of 7.0% from 2012 to 2017. North America is leading the total EACS market; followed by APAC and Europe respectively. However, in APAC, revivals of stalled construction projects and infrastructural boom have opened new avenues for EACS market. The sudden civil uprisings in the Middle East and Africa are compelling the governments and enterprises to rethink of their security measures
This section introduces the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN), developed under the coordination of the Object Management Group. Version 2 of this international standard introduces a series of modiﬁcations, including a new extension of the acronym. BPMN used to stand for Business Process Modeling Notation. In Version 2, the standard also deﬁnes a meta-model, so that Business Process Meta Model and Notation would have been a valid choice. Unfortunately, the term meta was dropped, resulting in the rather imprecise oﬃcial extension we now see in this section’s heading. In the remainder of this book, we will mostly use the acronym. The intent of the BPMN for business process modelling is very similar to the intent of the Uniﬁed Modeling Language for object-oriented design and analysis. To identify the best practices of existing approaches and to combine them into a new, widely accepted language. The set of ancestors of BPMN includes graph-based and Petri-net-based process modelling languages, such as UML activity diagrams and event-driven process chains. While these modelling languages focus on diﬀerent levels of abstraction, ranging from a business level to a more technical level, the BPMN aims at supporting the complete range of abstraction levels, from a business level to a technical implementation level. This goal is also laid out in the standards document, which states that “The primary goal of BPMN is to provide a notation that is readily understandable by all business users, from the business analysts that create the initial drafts of the processes, to the technical developers responsible for implementing the technology that will perform those processes, and ﬁnally, to the business people who will manage and monitor those processes. Thus, BPMN creates a standardized bridge for the gap between the business process design and process implementation.” The BPMN deﬁnes several diagram types for specifying both process orchestrations and process choreographies. Since this chapter focuses on orchestrations, only business process diagrams and collaboration diagrams are discussed in this section. Diagram types regarding process choreographies, that is, conversation diagrams and choreography diagrams, will be discussed in the next chapter. To classify the level of support that a particular BPMN software tool provides, the standard introduces so called conformance classes.

Dear reader, This ITB World Travel Trends Report 2013/14 was again commissioned by ITB Berlin from IPK International, organisers of the 21st annual World Travel Monitor® Forum, held at San Giuliano Terme, near Pisa, Italy, in late October 2013. The report covers the main trends in outbound travel demand for the first eight months of 2013 together with estimates for the full year and also contains initial forecasts for 2014, as presented at the Pisa forum (as it is widely known). In addition, it focuses on various topics and market segments that were discussed at the forum. These include the role of mobile technology and social media, the growing youth travel market, trends in the hospitality sector, the potential of Africa and perspectives on sustainability. As the following sections make clear, the world travel industry achieved good growth this year despite the uncertain world economy. Outbound travel grew by 4% in terms of trips while spending grew by 6%. Emerging markets such as China and Russia were again the top success stories with high growth rates for outbound travel while Asia and Europe performed well as tourist destinations. The outlook for 2014 is rosy with a 4-5% growth forecast by IPK’s World Travel Monitor for outbound travel as the world economy gradually improves. Emerging markets will remain the main growth drivers next year but both Europe and North America are expected to show solid growth as well. As usual, the Pisa forum was organised in co-operation with the European Travel Commission (ETC). Some 50 experts from around the world, including all regions of Europe, along with North and South America and parts of Asia-Pacific, took part. They represented international organisations, national and regional tourism organisations and associations, international research institutes and private companies from travel and tourism and related sectors. ITB Berlin is delighted to continue its close association with IPK International and the Pisa forum for the ninth consecutive year. In March 2014 at the ITB Berlin Convention, Rolf Freitag will present updated figures for 2013 as well as current forecasts for 2014. In the meantime, we wish you happy reading!

This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC rules, Operation of this device is subject to the following conditions: 1. This device may not cause harmful interference. 2. This device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation. Installation: The WMT-3000 transmitter is used with the Dakota Alert WR-3000 receiver. The WMT-3000 transmitter uses a passive infrared (PIR) detector to detect people, vehicles or large animals at the monitored location. When the transmitter detects an object, it will send a signal to the receiver, which will sound one of four different tones (Classical, Westminster Chime, Ding Dong, or Whistle) for a few seconds. The transmitter can be used as a driveway alarm, or in the back yard to monitor around tool sheds or patios. Operation: (Always test unit prior to installation) 1. Connect a 9-volt alkaline battery to the transmitter. 2. For maximum range between the transmitter and receiver, the transmitter should be mounted on a wooden post or tree (steel posts may cause interference with the radio signal). Although the maximum range is about 600 feet, obstructions such as hills, trees, metal siding and stucco can reduce the range… Note: The transmitters and receivers are preset at the factory. DO NOT change settings, unless changing the tune or experiencing false signals. 1. When looking at the PIR you will see clips on the sides of the plastic case. Push one of the clips away from the center of the case and lift out the PIR and the plastic backing. You will now be looking inside of the case at the radio transmitter (figure 2)
How the products works: Because of its patented magnetometer sensor transmitter system, the Driveway Monitor will only be triggered by cars or trucks - not people, animals and so forth. When a vehicle passes the Motion Alert® Sensor Transmitter next to the driveway, the receiver unit inside the office or home sounds a chime and flashes the alert light. The earth has a uniform magnetic field around it. A vehicle creates a slight disturbance in the earth’s field. The sensor transmitter detects this disturbance and transmits a signal to the receiver. Before you start: Refer to this drawing to become familiar with all the parts. The Solar Sensor Transmitter must be placed in an area that receives partial or full sunlight. For both models, be sure the location of the sensor transmitter is at least 25’ back from the main road. For a typical 12’ wide driveway, it is recommended 12”MOUNTING TUBE the sensor transmitter be no more than 3’ away from the driveway (see drawing). Additional sensor transmitters may be required for driveways exceeding 12’. Sensor transmitter may be placed up to 1,000 feet away from receiver; however, range may vary depending upon environment and use of wireless telephones, wireless routers and other similar devices. 1. Place cap on tube. 2. Insert stake to opposite end of tube. 3. Place the tube (stake side down) into the ground within 3’ of the driveway and more than 25’ from the road. 4. Gently hammer the cap side of the tube until stake is firmly in the ground. 5. Remove cap and place sensor transmitter on tube. 6. The sensor transmitter should have a clear line-of-site to the receiver to improve performance. 7. Place the sensor transmitter so the vehicle does not pass between it and the receiver. STI recommends the use of the stake and tube included with your Driveway Monitor. However, if you choose to mount the unit to an alternate mounting device, please be sure the device is stable. STI does not recommend mounting the sensor transmitter to a tree or a metal fence or gate. ...
