Sustainability can be interpreted as the principle that practices in engineering have to be implemented with respect to constraints in energy and materials and waste minimization. Sustainable science and engineering will provide the basis to solutions to the changing environment. This book is about the matrix of solutions and actions that can be used to help humankind face the challenges of the changing world. This is not a traditional engineering text for engineering students, with worked examples and quantitative problems. Instead, it presents lots of global problems, which lends itself first to a conceptual solution, which may be followed by real practical solutions for implementation. For students, conceptual solutions may be required in the form of essays and presentations. This book is the reference for both engineers and non-engineers who want to participate fully in the betterment of the world.

The scope of the International Journal of Applied Behavioral Economics (IJABE) encompasses how preferences, attitude, and behavioral issues influence economic agents involved in business and organizations. Special attention is given to the impact that globalization and digitalization have on businesses and organizations from a behavioral point of view. An interdisciplinary approach is required, as economics, psychology, sociology, and anthropology are domains that contribute to understanding complex economic behavior, its triggers, and its practical implications. The journal encourages practice-oriented research papers from academics and reflective papers from practitioners, as well as case studies. Both quantitative and qualitative research papers are welcomed, as well as research that uses innovative methodologies to explore new insights in the field and theory. This issue contains the following articles: Experience and History: An Experimental Approach to Generational Heterogeneity Loss Aversion on the Links: Penalized Pro Golfers Fall Prey to Decision Bias Adherence: A Behavioral Economists' View

The International Journal of Actor-Network Theory and Technological Innovation (IJANTTI) publishes research articles covering a wide range of topics related to Actor-Network Theory (ANT) and its use as a means of exploring socio-technical phenomena. An important goal for the journal is to facilitate publication of the body of research relating to the use of Actor-Network Theory as a means of understanding various socio-technical phenomena and providing examples and case studies of technological innovation. The journal facilitates the distribution of a wide range of research of this type. Much, but not all, of this research relates to the implementation and use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), as these inevitably involve interactions between technology and people. This is the area in which ANT is particularly useful and articles along these lines are encouraged. Other areas of special interest are the use of ANT as an analytical framework for research in education and in nursing. This journal covers a range of topics related to ANT. These topics include the development of Actor-Network Theory itself, as well as case studies of its use to assist in the explanation of various socio-technical phenomena. It also includes topics relating to technological innovation, both those using ANT as an explanatory framework and those using other approaches. This issue contains the following articles: Where to Now for Research into the First Year Experience at University?: Reassembling the First Year Experience Is it The Soul of a New/Lost Machine? When Technology Draws Society: Distributed Trust in Horizontal Infrastructure Understanding the Implementation of IT Governance Arrangements and IT Infrastructure Using Actor Network Theory

To remain relevant and in demand in today’s visually driven world, image makers must learn to craft both still photographs and motion in order to attract clients. While there are many similarities between photography and cinematography, there are key aspects of shooting motion—such as sound and camera movement, to name just two—that are uncharted territory for most photographers. In Filmmaking Essentials for Photographers: The Fundamental Principles of Transitioning from Stills to Motion , Emmy Award–winning photographer and filmmaker Eduardo Angel helps you begin your journey to becoming as capable and confident with creating works of motion as you are with photographing still images. Filmmaking Essentials for Photographers covers a wide range of tools, techniques, resources, and tips that offer practical input on how to transition to motion. This is not an in-depth book on editing, directing, or even lighting. Instead, the goal of this book is to cover the fundamental aspects of filmmaking from a straightforward nuts-and-bolts perspective. You will learn all about: • How to switch to a “filmmaker’s brain”: engage with a crew, understand the director’s and director of photography’s roles, and work with a script, shot lists, and storyboards • The basics of composition for motion: framing continuous shots, establishing a scene, and creating perspective and movement • The role of lighting, including how it is used to tell a story and how it directs the viewer’s attention • The crucial part that sound plays in motion, including music and soundscapes • How to use the right gear for the job: from cameras and lighting gear to microphones, rigs, and key accessories • The art and craft of editing: the post-production workflow, how to organize your assets, and how to deconstruct the editing process • Color theory and how you can use it to enhance the story you are telling • How to do more with less—no matter the budget Increasingly, opportunities come to those who can create content for clients that need both stills and motion. To that end, the final chapter of the book covers those business opportunities that will open up to you with your newfound skills in motion: from multimedia projects, educational content, and interviews, to independent short films, stock video footage, and commercials.
