This book takes a cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural look at mass appraisal expertise for property valuation in different market conditions, and offers some cutting- edge approaches. The editors establish an international platform and present the scientific debate as well as practical feasibility considerations. Heretic and orthodox valuation methods are assessed based on specific criteria, partly technical and partly institutional. Methodological evaluation is approached using two types of criteria: operational concerns about how to determine property value differentials between spatial and functional units of real estate in a valid and reliable way (technical criteria); and the kind of market circumstances being operated in (institutional criteria). While technical criteria are relatively well-researched, there is little theoretically informed work on the connection between country context and selection of property appraisal methods. The book starts with an examination of current mass property appraisal practices, presenting case studies from widely differing markets - from the American and Dutch, where regression-based methods have been used successfully for some time; to the Eastern European and other emerging economies, where limitations have to be compensated by focusing on the modelling assumptions. The second part of the book looks at sophisticated modelling approaches, some of which represent combinations of elements from two or more techniques. Whatever the exact modelling approach, the requirements are always high for the quality of the data and suitability of the method. In the final section, methods are evaluated and compared according to technical criteria and against institutional contexts.With its exceptionally wide coverage of valuation issues, Mass Appraisal Methods: an international perspective for property valuers addresses property valuation problems common to different countries and approaches applicable in both developed and emerging economies.

"Red Alert is a 1958 novel by Peter George about nuclear war. The book was the basis for Stanley Kubrick's film, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. Kubrick's film differs significantly from the novel in that it is a comedy. Originally published in the UK as Two Hours to Doom - with George using the pseudonym 'Peter Bryant' - the novel deals with the apocalyptic threat of nuclear war and the almost absurd ease with which it can be triggered."--Wikipedia.

One museum, two thieves, and the Boston underworld—the story behind the lost Gardner masterpieces and the art detective who swore to get them back Shortly after midnight on March 18, 1990, two men broke into the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston and committed the largest art heist in history. They stole a dozen masterpieces, including one Vermeer, three Rembrandts, and five Degas. But after thousands of leads, hundreds of interviews, and a $5-million reward, not a single painting has been recovered. Worth a total of $500 million, the missing masterpieces have become the Holy Grail of the art world and one of the nation's most extraordinary unsolved mysteries. Art detective Harold Smith worked on the theft for years, and after his death, reporter Ulrich Boser inherited his case files. Traveling deep into the art underworld, Boser explores Smith's unfinished leads and comes across a remarkable cast of characters, including the brilliant rock 'n' roll art thief; the golden-boy gangster who professes his innocence in rhyming verse; the deadly mobster James "Whitey" Bulger; and the Boston heiress Isabella Stewart Gardner, who stipulated in her will that nothing should ever be changed in her museum, a provision followed so closely that the empty frames of the stolen works still hang on the walls. Boser eventually cracks one of the biggest mysteries of the case and uncovers the identities of the men who robbed the museum nearly two decades ago. A tale of art and greed, of obsession and loss, The Gardner Heist is as compelling as the stolen masterpieces themselves.

"For Love's Sake Only" The last thing Charlotte Sane expects to find at a Rodeo is her dream man, but even she can't deny the instant attraction that leads her straight into the arms of a handsome cowboy named Ty Wilcox. The two have nothing in common. Nothing except insane, inexplicable, but undeniable desire. Ty knows from the instant they first kiss that he and Charlotte are meant to be together. Proving it to strong-willed Charlotte? A whole different bull-ride. The headstrong beauty is running scared, but she's got another thought coming if she thinks Ty will let her walk away. "The Blacker the Berry" Tamara Holifield could never have guessed one little favor would change her entire world, but it does. When her best friend Charlotte's husband Ty asks her to come out to visit and cheer up the homebound pregnant woman, she readily agrees. The only problem with Ty's plan is Tamara's lack of a car. Luckily for her, he has a solution, in the form of his best friend, lawyer Russell Crichton. Russell could never have imagined doing a favor for Ty would alter his perception of beauty or disrupt his entire life, but it does. Starting up a new venture is going to take time and focus and the last thing he needs is the distraction of his sexy carpooler. Russell never believed he would be attracted to a plus-size woman, nor did city-slicker Tamara think she would ever have anything in common with a white cowboy, but sizzling sex soon changes both their minds. Now, if they can look past their obvious differences, they might just find out that the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice. "Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable."

Why did the size of the U.S. economy increase by 3 percent on one day in mid-2013—or Ghana’s balloon by 60 percent overnight in 2010? Why did the U.K. financial industry show its fastest expansion ever at the end of 2008—just as the world’s financial system went into meltdown? And why was Greece’s chief statistician charged with treason in 2013 for apparently doing nothing more than trying to accurately report the size of his country’s economy? The answers to all these questions lie in the way we define and measure national economies around the world: Gross Domestic Product. This entertaining and informative book tells the story of GDP, making sense of a statistic that appears constantly in the news, business, and politics, and that seems to rule our lives—but that hardly anyone actually understands. Diane Coyle traces the history of this artificial, abstract, complex, but exceedingly important statistic from its eighteenth- and nineteenth-century precursors through its invention in the 1940s and its postwar golden age, and then through the Great Crash up to today. The reader learns why this standard measure of the size of a country’s economy was invented, how it has changed over the decades, and what its strengths and weaknesses are. The book explains why even small changes in GDP can decide elections, influence major political decisions, and determine whether countries can keep borrowing or be thrown into recession. The book ends by making the case that GDP was a good measure for the twentieth century but is increasingly inappropriate for a twenty-first-century economy driven by innovation, services, and intangible goods.
