Description : Everyone has been talking about the mobile web in recent years, and more of us are browsing the web on smartphones and similar devices than ever before. But most of what we are viewing has not yet been updated for mobile presentation. How can designers bring more of the web up to speed with the capabilities of today's mobile devices? In Mobilizing Web Sites: Develop and Design, author and designer Kristofer Layon addresses that elephant in the room --the many existing web sites that we manage on a day-to-day basis-- and walks through techniques that web designers can use to make these legacy web sites better-suited for mobile viewing. By focusing on content strategy and the mobile UI experience, web designers can use HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to design mobile presentations of legacy, standards-based web sites. The techniques of gradual mobile improvement are all that a designer needs to help the existing web be more mobile.

Description : This volume argues that international human rights law has made a positive contribution to the realization of human rights in much of the world. Although governments sometimes ratify human rights treaties, gambling that they will experience little pressure to comply with them, this is not typically the case. Focusing on rights stakeholders rather than the United Nations or state pressure, Beth Simmons demonstrates through a combination of statistical analyses and case studies that the ratification of treaties leads to better rights practices on average. Simmons argues that international human rights law should get more practical and rhetorical support from the international community as a supplement to broader efforts to address conflict, development, and democratization.

Description : Internationally operating nongovernmental organisations, NGOs, are increasingly involved in international politics and policy making. In many respects their involvement resembles activities and policies that, until recently, were typical of traditional national authorities. This book is about the reasons for which NGOs can and the reasons for which NGOs cannot be considered as rightful participants in international governance. It tries to deliver rationally defensible starting points for the discussion and the assessment of claims for the legitimacy of their organizations and activities. The book focuses on the question: What conditions must ideally be met for an organization to be called truthfully legitimate, be it or be it not as a matter of fact perceived as legitimate by the public? This does not mean that empirically descriptive questions are left aside. Practical feasibility is important even to a thoroughly normative conception of legitimacy. For that reason and for heuristic purposes, large parts of this book are dedicated to the ways in which NGOs and stakeholders perceive NGO legitimacy.

Description : Today, it is estimated there are over 200,000 volunteers in police work throughout the United States. Although the need for such volunteers has never been greater, there is a lack of published materials regarding the nature of volunteer police work and how qualified citizens may augment police services. American Volunteer Police: Mobilizing for Security provides a selective overview of the history, organizations, operations, and legal aspects of volunteer police in various U.S. states and territories. Designed to help police leaders adopt or modify their own volunteer programs, the book: Highlights what average Americans have done and are currently doing to safeguard their communities Presents contributions of police and safety volunteers at all levels of government—including the work of FEMA volunteers, the Civil Air Patrol, and the Coast Guard Auxiliary Examines youth involvement in contemporary police departments Discusses a variety of legal matters concerning volunteer participation in policing Includes the latest Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) standards concerning auxiliary and reserve police Explores new roles for volunteer police, including the treatment of homeless persons, the prevention of human trafficking, violence prevention in schools, immigration and border protection, and the establishment of college-level reserve police officer training cadet programs Framed by modern concerns for homeland security and community safety, the book places the topic in historical and international contexts. It will serve as a catalyst for the development of courses as well as growth in the number of qualified volunteer police, a necessary resource for homeland security. A 103-page online instructional manual is available for instructors who have adopted this book. It includes model answers to each of the review questions found at the end of each chapter as well as additional student exercises and related updated references.
