Get paid to travel to exotic places that few people ever get to see. Visit the Caribbean, Bahamas, America, Australia, Europe, Hawaii, Alaska, Africa, Canada, the Far East, the Pacific, the Mediterranean - even the Arctic! * Earn a great tax-free income! * Meet new people and make amazing friends of all nationalities! * Work in a luxurious and elegant 5-star environment! * Escape the "rat race" of home. And enjoy possibly the most amazing, satisfying and life-changing experience you ́ll ever have! My name is Neil Maxwell Keys, and in the next few minutes I ́d like to show you how you can quickly and easily land yourself a job on one of the worlds most luxurious cruise ships. Best of all, you can do this even if you have little or no experience in anything. A few years ago I tried hard to get a cruise ship job. It seemed the ideal way to save some money and travel the world while having some serious fun-in-the-sun! "Unfortunately I soon discovered that getting a job on a cruise ship is one of the hardest, most frustrating things you can do!" I scrambled night and day to find anything I could that would help me. But frustrating searches on the internet only turned-up ́dodgy ́ looking websites selling nothing but outdated addresses...phone numbers that didn ́t work... websites that no longer existed...and lots of false promises. And so-called agencies "guaranteed" me a job...but ONLY if I paid them a hefty fee! "I spent over $300 and wasted 12 months wandering around the Internet trying to get a job on a cruise ship. Don ́t make the same mistakes as me!" No one seemed to know anything. And nobody seemed to want to help without trying to take a big chunk of my hard-earned money. But it gets worse, much worse because I found that when I did manage to get through to the cruise lines...I ALWAYS got rejected! In fact I have a whole heap of rejection letters I could show you, that I received one after the other. Each time I got rejected, it crushed my feelings like a grape. Maybe this has happened to you too? You see, I knew that cruise lines hire 9,000 to 15,000 new staff PER YEAR just to keep up with all the new ships being launched. And yet I couldn ́t even get one lousy job! I concluded that this was a "closed" industry. And unless you knew anyone who already worked on a cruise ship and who was prepared to get you in...or you had a lot of money and were willing to pay big for it...then your chance of success was almost zero. I was about to give up on my dream when by complete accident... ...I discovered some startling 'secrets' about cruise ship jobs that anyone could use to get hired in the shortest time possible! The first time I applied these secrets the tables turned so dramatically it made my head spin. You see, now cruise line companies were calling ME with job offers - and I didn't know who to choose! Now, after several glorious years of working on some of the most desirable cruise ships in the world, I have traveled to many parts of South America, most of the islands of the Caribbean (my favorite being Barbados!) I have visited several islands of the Bahamas and much of Florida and the Keys, even Alaska. I made many great friends of all different nationalities and experienced tons of fantastic times and rare moments I ́ll treasure forever - and I got paid for it! And I can show YOU how to do all of this too - much quicker than it took me! You see,when I stopped working at sea I stayed in the industry as a cruise ship recruitment consultant. I worked for some of the most desirable cruise lines in the world, including: Carnival Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, NCL, Holland America, Cunard and many more! What's more, I am solely responsible for helping thousands of people just like you get the job of their dreams - working onboard a luxury cruise ship, traveling the world while having the time of their lives! Heck, I even got people cruise ship jobs on the most famous and glamorous vessel in the world... ...the legendary QE2! "I joined the QE2 today as an Assistant Waitress. I just wanted to say that it's thanks to you that I am sitting on this ship right now - ready to embark on the most exciting times of my entire life! Thanks again." Sarah Williams, United Kingdom Here are just a FEW more reasons why you might enjoy the cruise ship lifestyle... * FREE excursions that passengers pay hundreds of dollars to do! Including; helicopter rides over Alaskan glaciers, Swimming with dolphins, whale watching, rain forest & island safaris, hovercraft rides over the Everglades, exploring ancient and modern cities, party & drinking cruises, free passes to top tourist attractions, elephant safari rides and much, much more! (This is not hype. I have done thousands of dollars worth of free excursions!). * Parties galore! Cabin parties, deck parties, beach parties, crew-bar parties often with free food and drink. This is where the REAL fun happens! Boy, have I got some fond memories :-) * Dirt cheap drinks for crew members (as low as $1 for a cocktail!) * Your own "crew" bar. The best bar on the ship where you ́ll meet and make many great friends - even partners! * Get paid weekly in US dollars - CASH! (Nothing beats the feeling of being handed wads of crisp dollar bills at the end of each week!) * Zero expenses. Nothing. Zippo. Nadda. This means you get to keep ALL the money you earn - every cent! * Use of state-of-the-art facilities (Including, high-tech gymnasium with sauna, Jacuzzi ́s & steam rooms!) Not to mention the superb sports facilities which can be available to crew (volleyball, basketball, racquetball, outdoor and indoor pools and jogging track!) * Free room, board and more free food than you can eat! * Reduced travel rates even FREE cruises for family and friends to come out and visit you (trust me - they ́ll LOVE you forever for this one!) * Airfare paid to and from your ship! ...The benefits go on and on! Perhaps this sounds like a pipe dream to you? Maybe too good to be true? It really isn ́t, you know. This is exactly how thousands of other people are choosing to live their lives right now, as we speak. This is exactly the life that YOU too could be living! And get this. More than 130,000 people of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds are employed in this industry. People who ́ve quit the rat-race of home and are enjoying incredible life experiences, earning good money with none of the hassle of normal everyday living. No bills to pay, no cooking, no cleaning and no commitments (other than their job, of course!) What's more, they've discovered that it's a great way to travel the world for several months at a time - without the hassle, expense and danger of doing it alone. "Why shouldn't YOU be the one having fun in the sun?" Best of all, the good news is that there ́s absolutely nothing stopping you from joining them. No barriers at all. This is an industry where age, sex or race is NOT an obstacle. There is zero prejudice towards any particular groups of people. Whether you ́re male, female, young, old, black, white, Asian, gay, straight. You ́ll have exactly the same opportunities as the next person. Indeed, my first ship had 72 different nationalities working onboard - this is what makes it so unique, special and exciting! So there ́s plenty of opportunity - if you know what to do and how to go about it. "Just a short note to let you know things are going great and I have adapted well to the ship life. So far it has been an excellent and worthwhile experience - getting to see and explore so many different places, but also interacting with so many different cultures that work onboard is great. Thanks once again for all your help." Ann-Marie McInaw, Ireland If what you ́ve read so far doesn ́t get your juices flowing... If you don ́t feel a buzz of excitement building within you... if your mouth isn ́t watering at the prospect of experiencing this superb lifestyle... then maybe you should look elsewhere? I honestly don ́t think this is for you. On the other hand... If you ́re the type of person that aspires to a bit more in life...if you want travel, adventure and romance! And you want to meet people and make friends from all around the world...if you want to visit unique, exotic islands that few people ever get to see and enjoy amazing life experiences... ...and you're someone who wants something to tell the kids when they ́re older. And stories to make your friends at home jealous while they ́re stuck in their boring, tedious routines...but most importantly - you ́re someone who is prepared to work hard and play hard... Then this is definitely for you and you ́ll never regret it! Fact is, although there are 130,000 people working on cruise ships right now...it ́s one of the hardest industry's to get into...so unless you have access to the RIGHT information and know how to use it correctly - you ́re going to struggle. "Imagine if you had someone who REALLY knows what they ́re doing to guide you!" For the first time ever I've blown-open my personal vault. I ́ve left nothing to chance. I ́ve poured every possible little detail, all of my closely-guarded secrets...I ́ve scraped together all of my direct contacts...all of my little-known tricks, tips and previously un-disclosed information - into one complete never-seen-before package...

The methodology of science is of a crucial importance for the building of science as a whole as well as for the forming of the different scientific branches. That is, it seeks (among other things) to find out what is the nature of the “scientific image of the world,” what is the substance of the “scientific law,” what methods and procedures could and should be used within scientific research. In the field of social sciences, these issues are also associated with the question of the nature of clarifying statements that social sciences provide. Are the statements of social sciences similar to the explanations from natural sciences, or is it rather a revelation of the meaning and understanding of social phenomena based on a clarification of the system of rules? Is social cognition by its nature a causal explanation and is it rather an interpretation? All these are questions of the methodological nature that show the way towards the answer with respect to the character of the resulting scientific statement based on the examined issues, and based on what the given scientific statement provides evidence. This publication attempts to look for the answers to these questions and to establish possible grounds for their solutions.

This book offers postgraduate and early career researchers in accounting and information systems a guide to choosing, executing and reporting appropriate data analysis methods to answer their research questions. It provides readers with a basic understanding of the steps that each method involves, and of the facets of the analysis that require special attention. Rather than presenting an exhaustive overview of the methods or explaining them in detail, the book serves as a starting point for developing data analysis skills: it provides hands-on guidelines for conducting the most common analyses and reporting results, and includes pointers to more extensive resources. Comprehensive yet succinct, the book is brief and written in a language that everyone can understand - from students to those employed by organizations wanting to study the context in which they work. It also serves as a refresher for researchers who have learned data analysis techniques previously but who need a reminder for the specific study they are involved in.

If indeed scientists and technologists, especially economists, set much of the agenda by which the future is played out, and I think they do, then the student of scientific methodology and public ethics has at least three options. He can embrace certain scientific methods and the value they hold for social decisionmaking, much as Milton Friedman has accepted neoclassical econom ics. Or, he can condemn them, regardless of their value, much as Stuart Hampshire has rejected risk-cost-benefit analysis (RCBA). Finally, he can critically assess these scientific methods and attempt to provide solutions to the problems he has uncovered. As a philosopher of science seeking the middle path between uncritical acceptance and extremist rejection of the economic methods used in policy analysis, I have tried to avoid the charge of being "anti science". Fred Hapgood, in response to my presentation at a recent Boston Colloquium for the Philosophy of Science, said that my arguments "felt like" a call for rejection of the methods of risk-cost-benefit analysis. Not so, as Chapter Two of this volume should make eminently clear. All my criticisms are construc tive ones, and the flaws in economic methodology which I address are uncovered for the purpose of suggesting means of making good techniques better. Likewise, although I criticize the economic methodology by which many technology assessments (TA's) and environmental-impact analyses (EIA's) have been used to justify public projects, it is wrong to conclude that I am anti-technology.

Modern philosophy has benefited immensely from the intelligence, and sensitivity, the creative and critical energies, and the lucidity of Polish scholars. Their investigations into the logical and methodological foundations of mathematics, the physical and biological sciences, ethics and esthetics, psychology, linguistics, economics and jurisprudence, and the social science- all are marked by profound and imaginative work. To the centers of empiricist philosophy of science in Vienna, Berlin and Cambridge during the first half of this century, one always added the great school of analytic and methodol ogical studies in Warsaw and Lwow. To the world centers of Marxist theoretical practice in Berlin, Moscow, Paris, Rome and elsewhere, one must add the Poland of the same era, from Ludwik Krzywicki (1859-1941) onward. American socialists and economists will remember the careful work of Oscar Lange, working among us for many years and then after 1945 in Warsaw, always humane, logical, objective. In this volume, our friend and colleague, Jerzy J. Wiatr, has assembled a representative set of recent essays by Polish social scientists and philosophers. Each of these might lead the reader far beyond this book, to look into the Polish Sociological Bulletin which has been publishing Polish sociological studies in English for several decades, to study other translations of books and papers by these authors, and to reflect upon the interplay of logical, phenomenological, Marxist, empiricist and historical learning in modern Polish social understanding.

This book both argues for, and demonstrates, a new turn to dialectic. Marxs Capital was clearly influenced by Hegels dialectical figures: here, case by case, the significance of these is clarified. More, it is argued that, instead of the dialectic of the rise and fall of social systems, what is needed is a method of articulating the dialectical relations characterising a given social whole. Marx learnt from Hegel the necessity for a systematic development, and integration, of categories; for example, the category of value can be fully comprehended only in the context of the totality of capitalist relations. These studies thus shed new light on Marxs great work, while going beyond it in many respects.This publication has also been published in paperback, please click here for details"
