8 Signal Traffic - Lisa Parks & Nicole Starosielski
Auteur : Lisa Parks & Nicole Starosielski
Genre : Arts et disciplines linguistiques
The contributors to Signal Traffic investigate how the material artifacts of media infrastructure--transoceanic cables, mobile telephone towers, Internet data centers, and the like--intersect with everyday life. Essayists confront the multiple and hybrid forms networks take, the different ways networks are imagined and engaged with by publics around the world, their local effects, and what human beings experience when a network fails.

Some contributors explore the physical objects and industrial relations that make up an infrastructure. Others venture into the marginalized communities orphaned from the knowledge economies, technological literacies, and epistemological questions linked to infrastructural formation and use. The wide-ranging insights delineate the oft-ignored contrasts between industrialized and developing regions, rich and poor areas, and urban and rural setting

10 The Mastermind - Evan Ratliff
Auteur : Evan Ratliff
Genre : Droit
GQ's Best Books of 2019.

'A hidden world filled with high-tech gangsters and drug kingpins and double-crossers and stone-cold hitmen. As fascinating as it is terrifying.’
David Grann, author of Killers of the Flower Moon and The Lost City of Z

The Mastermind tells the incredible true story of Paul Le Roux, the frighteningly powerful creator of a 21st Century cartel, and the decade-long global manhunt that finally brought his empire to its knees.

From its origins as a prescription drug network, supplying hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of painkillers to online customers, Le Roux’s business evolved into a sprawling multinational conglomerate engaged in almost every conceivable aspect of criminal mayhem. Yachts carrying $100 million in cocaine. Safe houses in Hong Kong filled with gold bars.

11 Traffic - J.H. Mori
Auteur : J.H. Mori
Genre : Poésie
The truth behind Traffic is anything but exuberant, and quickly manifests into a spirit of attitude and starkness. Literally, it can place people at their absolute worst, or absolute best. On the other hand, metaphorically, traffic constructs obstacles, blockages and an inordinate amount of intrinsic frustration. Evident throughout this collection of poetry, J.H. Mori introduces us to his perspective regarding the pattern of hopes’ presence in grief.

Speed. Bump. Speed. Traffic considers the history and philosophy of roundabouts, speed bumps, the pedestrian mall, and other efforts to manage traffic.

From no leads, to one shadowy figure, the trail takes them through Singapore to Bangkok, India and Saudi Arabia, interspersed with visit's to the kidnap victim and how she copes with her situation.

15 Traffic - Tom Vanderbilt
Auteur : Tom Vanderbilt
Genre : Sociologie
Get stuck in ... Why do some people become demons when they get behind a wheel? Why does the other lane always move faster? Why do New Yorkers jaywalk (and nobody does in Cophenhagen)? And why should you never drive with any beer-drinking, divorced doctors named Fred?

Driving is about far more than getting from A to B. As Tom Vanderbilt's brilliant, curiosity-filled book shows, it's actually the key to deciphering human nature and ... well, pretty much everything. From the etiquette of horn-honking to bumper stickers you should avoid, from gridlock in ancient Rome to why getting rid of road signs actually reduces accidents, Traffic will change the way you see yourself, and other people (and not just through your windscreen).

16 Seventy-Two Virgins - Boris Johnson
Auteur : Boris Johnson
Genre : Romans et littérature
Seventy-Two Virgins is a comic political novel, with similar appeal to Stephen Fry or Ben Elton, written by one of Britain's most popular politicians. It is Boris Johnson’s first novel and was widely acclaimed on publication.

The American President, on a State Visit to Britain is giving a major address to a top-level audience in Westminster Hall. Ferocious security – with some difficulties in communication – is provided by a joint force of the United States Secret Service and Scotland Yard. The best sharpshooters from both countries are stationed on the roof of the Parliament buildings.

Then a stolen ambulance runs into trouble with the Parking Authorities. A hapless Member of Parliament, having mislaid his crucial pass, is barred from Westminster, his bicycle regarded as a potential lethal weapon. And a man going by the name of Jones, although born

18 Blockchain in Healthcare: Innovations that Drive Sustainable Health Outcomes and Efficiency - David Metcalf
Auteur : David Metcalf
Genre : Informatique
Blockchain technology is more than just digital money and crypto-currency. Like the Internet, blockchain allows people to exchange data, information and money, but in a way that is more secure, verifiable, and transparent without the need of a “trusted” third party (peer-to-peer) intermediary. Many industries will be reshaped by the new trusted data models enabled and inspired by blockchain – healthcare is no exception. In fact, healthcare may hold the greatest opportunities for meaningful use of the technology. Early pioneers have explored some of the first use cases for medical payments, electronic health records, HIPAA/data privacy, drug counterfeiting, and credentialing of healthcare professionals. We have only begun to scratch the surface in how to automate the complexities of today’s healthcare systems and design new systems which focus on trust, transparency and the alignm

19 Tubes - Andrew Blum
Auteur : Andrew Blum
Genre : Internet
An engaging, narrative tour behind the scenes of our everyday lives to see the dark beating heart of the Internet itself.

We are all connected now. But connected to what, exactly? In Tubes, journalist Andrew Blum takes readers on a fascinating journey to find out.

When former Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska famously described the Internet as “a series of tubes,” he seemed hopelessly, foolishly trapped in an old way of knowing the world. But he wasn’t wrong. After all, as Blum writes, the Internet exists: for all the talk of the “placelessness” of our digital age, the Internet is as fixed in real, physical places as any railroad or telephone ever was. It fills enormous buildings, converges in some places and avoids others, and it flows through tubes under ground, up in the air, and under the oceans all over the world. You can map it, you can smell it,

21 TrafficKing - Conchita Sarnoff
Auteur : Conchita Sarnoff
Genre : Criminologie
Advocate and abolitionist Conchita Sarnoff risked her life to tell the truth about a Wall Street billionaire hedge fund manager who is now a level-3 registered sex offender.

TrafficKing uncovers a child sex trafficking case of epic proportions and the longest-running human trafficking case in U.S. legal history—more poignant than the Lewinsky case, Watergate scandal, and Profumo affair combined. Eleven years after the registered level-3 sex offender was arrested, four cases associated with his 2005 criminal investigation remain open. The pedophile was not prosecuted under The Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA), a law enacted in Florida in 2000. In this gripping exposé, Sarnoff finds out why. 

TrafficKing is a true story exposing the dark side of the human condition: avarice, lust, power, and influence ped

23 Something is Rotten in Blue Velvet ... an Exploration of David Lynch's Blue Velvet Via Shakespeare's Hamlet. - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
This article explores David Lynch's controversial 1986 film Blue Velvet, through its unexpected parallels with Shakespeare's Hamlet. The article lays out the narrative and symbolic parallels between the two texts, including their plot similarities, the Oedipal dramas inherent to each, their remarkably similar use of imagery and their respective use of the madonna/whore dichotomy in their treatment of women. The striking parallels between the film and Shakespeare's tragedy are used to elaborate on the existing reception of the film, to support the argument that the film's conclusion is a parodic, rather than happy, ending. **********

24 Self-Knowledge (Essay) - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
The aspiration to self-knowledge was at the centre of all reflection for the classical Greek philosophers. All knowledge or desire for knowledge, which is not merely instrumental, must proceed only from a genuine passion, a genuine awareness of what one is and could be. While there is in our time an unusual emphasis on the self, nothing better characterises that emphasis than the denial of the possibility of self-knowledge. This denial has deep roots in the fundamental theses of modern thought, which in turn issue from a critique of the classics. If we wish to think seriously about ourselves, our most urgent task is to re-examine these respective viewpoints. I

25 Mind over Gut? Hypnotherapy and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (Medicine) - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
Almost two thousand years ago the Greek philosopher Aristotle (384-323 BCE) was concerned with the connection between psychological processes and the underlying physiological phenomenon. He postulated that the body and the mind exist as facets of the same being, with the mind being simply one of the body's functions. In the seventeenth century Rene Descartes (1596-1650), also known as the father of modern philosophy, theorised that the mind and the body are separate and distinct substances. He stated that the mind is conscious and non-spatial whilst the body is spatial but not conscious. He also thought that these two substances interacted via the pineal gland. While this latter theory has long prevailed, (1) we now know that Aristotle's theory has credence. States of mind do indeed directly affect the body, and the body can directly interact with the brain and mind. This has been nicely

27 Seerstory (Essay) - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
The indoor rivers became a pool around the library, a design that was supposed to encourage us to end up there whenever our thoughts gathered weight. I beached myself in that archive more than was typical of someone who had the talent, however. Another reason to suspect I was a cloud that would pass without giving. My current failure was history. Marshall was trying to teach me a new version of it, but his gift was unusually strong, so he was able to leave most out. He didn't believe in accounts that included chronology, people or events, which didn't preserve much. Only raw concepts mattered to my teacher, and he described the way they mutated as they migrated from philosophy to species categorisation, or perhaps found a niche in physics. 'Think of precedence in terms of ideashapes,' he'd said. On the rare occasions when he mentioned a philosopher's name, it was solely to blame him (

28 'Ticking the Faith Box': Reinterpreting the Place of Conservative Christianity in Australian Electoral Politics (Case Study) - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
Since the decline of sectarianism in post-war Australian society, Australian political culture has become increasingly characterised by its secularity. As tensions between Catholic and Protestant Australians began to diminish in the 1960s, discussion about the role of religion in public life also receded into the background; the variety of ways in which religion continues to influence political behaviour in Australia, both within and without the walls of federal parliament, ceased to be the subject of substantive scholarly inquiry. (1) As Marion Maddox observed in 2001, most political scientists have assumed that in post-sectarian Australian politics there is 'little to say about religion, and that little not very interesting'. (2) This consensus has slowly crumbled in the years since the election of John Howard's Coalition government in 1996, however, and has given way to a revival of d

32 It Ain't over 'Til ...?(The Political Connotations of the Curtain Call) (Critical Essay) - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
The absence of a curtain call, like many absences, speaks more loudly than its presence. This paper emerges in response to Brink Productions/Budgie Lung Theatre's performance of Sarah Kane's 4.48 Psychosis in Adelaide, October 2004. Struck by the vehement response of a proportion of the audience to the failure of the actors to return to the emptied stage to 'take a bow', I began to ponder the crucial, liminal position of this act that has long survived the disappearance of the actual curtain itself. As a result of this informal musing, I suggest that the absent curtain call is not mere aesthetic conceit, but political choice. **********

34 Melodrama, Social Spectatorship and the Modern Social Problem Film (Essay) ("America: River's Edge", "Falling Down" and "Kids") (Critical Essay) - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
This article concerns research pertaining to my PhD, and is an attempt to apply a contractual reading to three recent examples of the social problem film in America: River's Edge (Tim Hunter, 1986), Falling Down (Joel Schumacher, 1993) and Kids (Larry Clark, 1995). I suggest that the modern social problem film obligates its audience to perform a morally responsible act of spectatorship as a means of resecuring the social bond within the collective realm of the audience. This is contrasted with a second contractual reading of the films, in which the realm of moral responsibility and 'vision' is seen to be limited to the narrative rather than the social domain represented by the viewing of the spectator. By outlining the different contractual effects created by melodrama and social spectatorship in relation to Kids, River's Edge and Falling Down, this article seeks to complicate the kinds

INTRODUCING THE PROJECT It was these sentences which captured me, and got me started on the train of thought that has now evolved into the writing before you. I was transfixed, mesmerised by the possibilities and theoretical turns in front of me, triggered by these few words. In the writing of her piece 'Grease cowboy fever: Or, the making of Johnny T', K Bradford engaged with her work as a Drag King through both her daily persona, with almost schizophrenic interjections from her Drag King persona, Johnny T. (2) At that point, I saw a humour I recognised--one similar to my own, and one I came to realise lay in Camp. But beyond that, I saw evidence of my experiences of Drag Kinging--from the audience--and I wanted to know more, I wanted to find my experiences and desires reflected in this kind of work. I searched. I found nothing that did it justice, that said the things I felt when I, as

The national borders of present-day Sudan were first drawn when the Egyptian proxy authorities of the Ottoman Empire annexed the land around the southern Nile in 1820, and were later adopted by the British when they began ruling Sudan in condominium with Egypt in 1899. (1) But those borders were drawn with scant regard for the cultural complexities of the people within them--Arab Muslims in the Saharan north, African animists in the southern plains--so that political instability has plagued Sudan almost from the instant of its inception. (2) As the mid-twentieth century unravelling of the British Empire precipitated Sudanese independence, speculation arose that north and south might achieve independence as two distinct nations; but ultimately a split between them never eventuated, and in 1956 the borders of the newly-independent nation were virtually identical to the Ottoman borders of m

39 A 'Flight from Reality'?: The Bolshevik Party, The New Economic Policy and Karl Mannheim's Theory of 'Utopian False-Consciousness' (Report) - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
In the winter of 1923, prior to his final and inexorable fall from grace within the Bolshevik Party, Leon Trotsky wrote a pamphlet entitled The New Course. Reflecting upon the 'problem' of the peasantry and warning of the corrupting influence of 'bureaucratism' within the Party, The New Course gave voice to Trotsky's fears for the future of the 'proletarian revolution' in Russia. (2) Chastising the Bolshevik Party's leadership for betraying its own revolutionary tradition, the pamphlet was a blunt challenge to the ruling bloc in the Politbureau. Trotsky's call for the adoption of a 'new course', however, was not indicative of a reassessment of the party's ideology or utopian aspirations. Instead Trotsky called the party to adhere more faithfully, in both word and in action, to the Marxist-Leninist theory upon which the October Revolution had been premised. Marxism-Leninism, Trotsky wrote

40 Writing the Lake Boga Failure (Lake Boga Mission Station, Victoria, Australia) (Essay) - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
This article examines three people's interpretations of the events surrounding the 1856 closure of the Lake Boga mission station, a Moravian-run Aboriginal mission station in Northern Victoria. Writing (history) is a political act and the events or factors that different people emphasise in their writings inform the reader of the writers' biases and also of the intents behind their stances. By analysing the reasons behind their biases before these histories are combined, a more complex and richer understanding of events can be created. While this piece is not singling out a wrong to write/right, it will suggest that writing from one perspective, although not 'wrong', is a simplistic way of understanding the truth of history. When I first saw the theme of this issue of Traffic--Write the Wrongs--I searched through my mental filing cabinets trying to locate one specific point in my field o

41 Re-Membering Psycho: Aesthetic Regimes and Affective Resonances in the Bourne Identity (Report) - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
I am watching Doug Liman's 2002 film The Bourne Identity. (1) I am approximately a quarter of the way through and the amnesiac protagonist Jason Bourne arrives at his unfamiliar Paris apartment with Marie, his newly acquired female sidekick. She asks to use his bathroom. It should be a fairly innocuous moment: taking a shower is perhaps the most quotidian of human undertakings. However, the legacy of that shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 film Psycho (2) imposes itself on my memory; it seems embedded in the texture of Liman's film. As in the films of Alfred Hitchcock, 'cinema asserts itself as aberration of movement and dispossession of point of view'. (3) The camera is restlessly searching out its subject in each shot. The intensifying pace of the editing, the fragmented framing, the cinematic cuts that fragment the body of Bourne--which offer me a multiplicity of perspectives fro

42 Hordes and Massed Machines: Samuel Huntington in Russia (History) - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
This article seeks to examine Huntingdon's 'clash of civilisations' thesis in the context of Russian attitudes towards Asia and the Russian Empire's Muslim populations. The Russian experience is particularly apposite because of Russia's geopolitical position and the ongoing debate that this has caused about whether Russia is part of Europe, Asia or Eurasia and how--in making a positive ideological identification with one of these--the 'other' is constructed in Russian cultural and intellectual history. While there are some similarities between early Russian attitudes to Mongol rule and the 'clash of civilisations' thesis, this essay attempts to show Huntingdon's limits by emphasising the importance of political and cultural continuity and hybridity in Russian attitudes towards its Muslim and pagan populations.

43 Doing the Right Thing (Essay) - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
The existence of variations in how medicine is practised is well known to patients, doctors and health administrators. My paper opens with a description of a real clinical event (names have been changed), and then presents evidence of the presence and extent of practice variations for hysterectomy. I outline the difficulties faced by Evidence Based Medicine in supporting best practice. Using the theoretical framework of connectionism, I then introduce and discuss evidence that the hospital medical culture has a significant influence on clinical decision-making. I conclude with a discussion of the broader implications of this research. PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT

44 Each Time I'm Reminded of It, I Feel As Though I Need Therapy': Australian Football, Tragedies and the Question of Catharsis (Essay) - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
We wouldn't think anything of tragedy if we did not have a deeply ingrained sense of order already there to be affronted. Tragedy in life, as art ... exposes by violation our mostly unconscious assumptions about how the world should be; and how often we take it for granted that it is as it should be (a world, say, without our death already in it). Adam Phillips (2) 'Ask any Western Bulldogs supporter at random the worst moment of their footy life and the answer will almost certainly be: The Loss. Western Bulldogs vs Adelaide [Crows], Preliminary Final, September 20, 1997 ... The losing spin of the roulette wheel on which Bulldogs people had invested everything.' (3) So began Marty Gleeson in late 2007 for a piece titled 'Ten years of torment: 1997 ... from drought-breaker to heart-breaker' for the summer edition of Inside Football.

45 Envisioning an Indulgence: Dracula (1897) & Van Helsing (2004) (Critical Essay) - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
This paper argues that a sub-theme of pro-Catholicism exists in Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula. The only people who destroy the Count are a Catholic, protected by Catholic sacraments and an Indulgence from a Church authority, and apparently partly converted Protestants. The possibility is addressed that Stoker, despite being considered a confirmed Protestant, wrote Dracula as an understated work of propaganda promoting the proselytisation of Protestants to Catholicism, and that the motion picture Van Helsing (2004), being a rare example of a screen adaptation so informed, suggests a foregrounding of this pro-Catholic sub-theme is possible. Despite the possibility that Dracula's antagonist is the most enduring and widely adapted of any modern literary creation, and that Irishman Bram Stoker's 1897 novel is arguably replete with Catholic allegory, no stage or screen adaptation faithfu

46 Really-Existing Nostalgia? Remembering East Germany in Film (Critical Essay) - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
The man. The woman. The adolescent. These three characters are the narrative centres of three films set in the German Democratic Republic (or GDR): The Lives of Others, Good Bye Lenin! and Sonnenallee, respectively. (1) Each of these films reflects and has also, through domestic box office success, played a role in debates around the history and memory of this former communist state. In this sense, these characters each embody circulating ideas of the GDR citizenry: the sullen yet stoic face of bureaucratic repression (the Stasi); the once gleaming and hopeful, now fragile face of communist ideology; the nostalgic dreamer, conflating the political and the personal. Each of these stereotypes embodies what has been a dominant representation of the GDR at some stage over the past two decades--in the past nineteen years, the GDR and its former citizens have been understood in differently emp

47 Oscar Wilde: A Celebrity in the Making (Essay) - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
Oscar Wilde has received much biographical attention, both popular and scholarly, since his death in 1900. With such interest in the figure of Wilde, one's initial feeling might be that all sources available concerning Wilde had surely been located and 'exhausted'. During the past two years, however, new source material has entered the public domain from a private collection. This source has provided my thesis with a new insight into Oscar Wilde and his lecture tour of America in 1882. The nineteenth-century scrapbook bequeathed to the British Library in 2005 casts the most significant new light on the early career of Oscar Wilde. The volume of advertising materials, newspaper and magazine clippings compiled by Wilde's American tour manager, Colonel W F Morse, contains material which presents a career in the making and a very conscious construction of a modern celebrity.

48 Wu Xia Pian and the Asian Woman Warrior (Cinema) (War Movies) - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
This paper challenges the assertion of Western film criticism that the Asian woman warrior is a new phenomenon. Rather, I suggest that because of its exposure to early Hollywood interpretations of the Asian woman, Western film criticism has a conventional view of Asian women, and hence this is a possible reason why the Asian woman warrior garnered interest amongst film critics. What I have done here is to provide a flashback to the presentation and treatment of women in Chinese wu xia pian or martial arts films. The purpose of this paper is to show that while Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon/Wo Hu Cang Long (2000) may have captured the imagination of Western audiences because of its strong and powerful fighting Asian women, the figure of the woman warrior in wu xia pian is not unusual or unique. Rather, she is a quintessential character in wu xia pian and Chinese psyche. **********

50 Exposing the Failings of Our Betters: Bad Laws Don't Improve with Age (Supreme Court of Victoria: King V Smail, 1958) (Essay) - Traffic (Parkville)
Auteur : Traffic (Parkville)
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
A continuing tension exists between practising lawyers (practitioners and judges) who are unable to choose which cases make up their work and the academic gadflies who may cherry-pick. The standard academic method is to treat most decisions of the lower courts as beneath contempt, decisions of the appeal courts as obviously unsound, and to begrudge those of the highest court as right but for the wrong reasons (and to delight in pointing out the logical flaws). This gadfly offers his analysis of a 'wrong' decision in land law that has stood for nearly half a century and recently been reaffirmed as 'correct'. INTRODUCTION
