The AfPak Channel, ForeignPolicy.com, March 22, 2011; The strategy of having the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) take over the security burden from the U.S. and NATO forces is now a centerpiece of President Obama's Afghanistan policy. But as decision makers continue to push hard for a speedy "Afghanization" of the conflict, serious thought should be given to the current policy paradox of trying to rapidly expand an already unmanageable indigenous military force structure while aggressively pursuing information security organs, namely static militias and various community defense forces.

Tipo: Artigo de Revista Científica
Newton's Method is used to find roots of differentiable functions, and is easily adapted to find critical points of twice-differentiable functions. Students often rely on the numerical results of Newton's Method without a complete analysis of the function. We offer a function that when used in a lab setting using technology allows the students to gain further insights into the use of Newton's Method.

Contemporary South Asia, 1997, vol. 6, no. 1.; Pakistan has been gradually liberalizing its economy. Like many less developed countries in the 1980s Pakistan had a large government sector, measured both in terms of its direct involvement in the productive structure (government enterprises), also through its interference (price controls) in the market system.

Tipo: Refereed Journal Article
Population Bulletin of the UN Economic Commission for West Asia, June 1985.; Until recently, development was widely regarded as a largely economic phenomenon. As a result, the main quantitative indicator of.' a country's development status was its gross domestic product. While this index does measure one of the key aspects of development, the accumulation of wealth and productive power, it is clearly inadequate as an indicator of the country's social and institutional characteristics and level of progress. In particular, pure economic measures of development are often quite weakly connected to some of the demographic determinants of fertility and mortality, themselves presumed to be a function as well as determinant of economic growth (Adelman and Morris 1965). Nowhere is the discrepancy between per capita income and the normal patterns of demographic change more obvious than in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia's Islamic Growth Model: Applications to Monetary and Banking Policy

Tipo: Refereed Journal Article
Journal of Social, Political and Economic Studies, Summer 1985.; Perhaps no other area of Islamic economic thought has been more misunderstood than that concerning the role of the rate of interest. Any economic system concerned primarily with the welfare of the individual must not only encourage allocative efficiency, but~also promote economic growth if it is to avoid social injustice, economic stagnation and widespread unemployment. 1 The method of state allocation utilized in the eastern block countries is one' possible way of avoiding the widespread use of interest rates. Given that complete or near complete socialization of the means of production that this system requires is contrary to the individualistic moralistic philosophy of Islam, the Saudi government is, given its concern for the welfare of the economy, left with little choice but to somehow direct savings through the organized capital markets to the private sector.

Middle East Policy, Spring 2003.; Since 9/ 11, investigations into the al-Qaeda financial network have led to several notable successes in the United States and Europe. Much of this achievement in the United States has resulted from strengthening the financial investigatory powers of domestic law-enforcement agencies and coordinating them through the Treasury Department's new Foreign Terrorist Asset Tracking Center. In other countries, the Paris-based Financial Action Task Force, for example, is helping to coordinate the tracking of terrorist funds through the global banking system and cracking down on countries that fail to improve transparency and regulation.

A Security Domain Model for Static Analysis and Verification of Software Programs

Tipo: Artigo de Revista Científica
Unauthorized information flows can result from malicious software exploiting covert channels and overt flaws in access control design. To address this problem, we present a precise, formal definition for information flow that relies on control flow dependency tracing through program execution, and extends Dennings’ and follow-on classic work in secure information flow [7][19][27]. We describe a formal security Domain Model (DM) for conducting static analysis of programs to identify illicit information flows, access control flaws and covert channel vulnerabilities. The DM is comprised of an Invariant Model, which defines the generic concepts of program state, information flow, and security policy rules; and an Implementation Model, which specifies the behavior of a target program. The DM is compiled from a representation of the program, written in a domain-specific Implementation Modeling Language (IML), and a specification of the security policy written in Alloy. The Alloy Analyzer tool is used to perform static analysis of the DM to automatically detect potential covert channel vulnerabilities and security policy violations in the target program.

The article of record as published may be found at http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/186281.186480; Technological changes continue to appear at an astonishing pace and are growing in complexity. Furthermore, corporate and government emphasis is on downsizing, empowerment, reengineering of processes, and changing organizational structures. These new initiatives address changes business processes in light of changing economic and political environments. Information technologies will be used to an increasing extent to leverage other scare resources in an effort to meet these changing business requirements during the 90's and beyond.

Tipo: Conference Paper
The Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) is a military university educating officers from the United States and 40 foreign countries. To investigate the NPS information environment a large study obtained data on the range of information needs and behaviors of NPS personnel. The specific aim of the study was to supply organizational units with qualitative data specific to their client base, enabling them to improve campus systems and information services. Facilitators from the NPS Organizational Support Division conducted eighteen (18) focus groups during Spring Quarter 1998. Transcribed focus group sessions were analyzed using NUDIST software to identify key issues and results emerging from the data set. Categories of participants' information needs were identified, including an analysis of key information issues across the NPS campus. Use of Internet resources, other trusted individuals, and electronic indexes and abstracts ranked high among information sources used by NPS personnel. A picture emerges of a campus information environment poorly understood by the academic community. The three groups (students, staff and faculty) articulated different concerns and look to different sources to satisfy their information needs. Participants' information seeking problems centered on: (1) housing...

Tipo: Artigo de Revista Científica
Reprinted from Tidskrift i Sjöväsendet Issue 1/2015; As U.S. Navy forces focus on littoral operations, there is a need to explore force structure and capabilities that address operations in the global littorals with and without support of traditional blue water force structure from the U.S. Navy’s key naval partners. This Navy force, optimized for littoral operations will act independently within the complex littoral zone and against sophisticated threats and it will act as a force multiplier in the application of traditional blue water capabilities adjacent to the littorals.
