The #1 New York Times Bestseller! A hot and hilarious new romantic comes from the author of smash hits MISTER O and BIG ROCK... I’ve been told I have quite a gift. Hey, I don’t just mean in my pants. I’ve got a big brain too, and a huge heart of gold. And I like to use all my gifts to the fullest, the package included. Life is smooth sailing... Until I find myself stuck between a rock and a sexy roommate, which makes for one very hard…place. Because scoring an apartment in this city is harder than finding true love. So even if I have to shack up with my buddy’s smoking hot and incredibly amazing little sister, a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do. I can resist Josie. I’m disciplined, I’m focused, and I keep my hands to myself, even in the mere five-hundred square feet we share. Until the one night she insists on sliding under the covers with me. It’ll help her sleep after what happened that day, she says. Spoiler—neither one of us sleeps. Did I mention she’s also one of my best friends? That she’s brilliant, beautiful and a total firecracker? Guess that makes her the full package too. What’s a man stuck in a hard place to do?

The Simulation of Thermomechanically Induced Stress in Plastic Encapsulated IC Packages

This book is motivated by the need to understand and predict the complex stress distributions, transfer mechanisms, warpage, and potential failures arising from the encapsulation of devices in plastic. Failures like delaminations, package cracking, and metal shift occur due to the build-up of residual stress and warpage in the packages because of the TCE mismatch between the package materials as the package cools from its molding temperature to room temperature. The correct use of finite element tools for these problems is emphasised. F.E. techniques are used to predict the internal package stress distribution and help explain the stress transfer mechanism between the die, die paddle, and plastic after molding. Out-of-plane shear stress components are shown to be responsible for experimentally observed metal shift patterns on the die surface. Delaminations dramatically alter the internal stress state within a package, increasing the tensile stress in the plastic and so the likelihood of plastic cracks, the stress on wire bonds, and the incidence of wire bond failure. The application of F.E. techniques to predict the post-mold warpage of both thermally enhanced PQFPs and TQFPs is described. Simulations of a thermally enhanced PQFP warpage based on standard modelling assumptions alone fail to predict either the magnitude or its direction correctly. The modelling assumptions need to be modified to include the chemical shrinkage of the molding compound to enable accurate predictions of package warpage to be made, particularly when the packages are asymmetric in structure. Microsystem packaging in both plastic and 3D package body styles is reviewed. Although microsystem packaging is derived from IC packaging, additional requirements for microsystems, not common to IC packaging are highlighted. The assembly stresses on a novel microsystem, incorporating a micromachined silicon membrane pump integrated into a 3D plastic encapsulated vertical multichip module package (MCM-V), are analysed.

The clothing sector has traditionally been a gateway to export diversification and industrial development for low-income countries (LICs) due to its low fix costs, relatively simple technology, and labor-intensive nature. It has served to absorb large numbers of unskilled, and mostly female, workers and build capital and know-how for more technologically advanced activities within and across sectors. But the environment for global clothing trade has changed significantly which may condition the role the sector can play in promoting export diversification and industrial development in LICs today. Main drivers have been the rise of global buyers and their global sourcing strategies, the phase out of quotas in the Multi-Fiber Arrangement (MFA), and, more recently, the global economic crisis. In the context of these changes, this study analyzes how the clothing sector can still provide a gateway to export diversification and industrial development for LICs today. The key objectives of this study are to assess main developments in the global clothing sector associated with the Multi-Fiber Arrangement (MFA) phase out, global buyers and their sourcing strategies, and the global economic crisis; analyze challenges that LICs are facing in the post-quota and post-crisis world in entering and upgrading within global clothing value chains; and identify policy recommendations to increase the competitiveness of LIC clothing exporters as well as to further their integration into and improve their positions within global clothing value chains. For the study interviews with buyers in the US, the EU and South Africa as well as case studies in Sub-Saharan African LICs (Kenya, Lesotho and Swaziland), Cambodia and Bangladesh were conducted. The study finds that global consolidation in the clothing sector has increased entry barriers at the country and firm level. This has created new challenges to LIC suppliers as low labor costs and preferential market access are not enough to be competitive in the clothing sector today. Suppliers with broad capabilities have been able to develop strategic relationships with global buyers. Marginal or new suppliers are entering the global value chains through intermediaries, but face limited upgrading opportunities. FDI plays an important role in integrated LICs into global clothing value chains, yet it needs to be used in a way that promotes and upgrades local clothing industries. Overall, the clothing sector still provides opportunities for export diversification and industrial development. However, this requires pro-active policies to increase the competitiveness and local embeddedness of LIC clothing exporters.

Why do Jews win so many Nobel Prizes and Pulitzer Prizes? Why are Mormons running the business and finance sectors? Why do the children of even impoverished and poorly educated Chinese immigrants excel so remarkably at school? It may be taboo to say it, but some cultural groups starkly outperform others. The bestselling husband and wife team Amy Chua, author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, and Jed Rubenfeld, author of The Interpretation of Murder, reveal the three essential components of success – its hidden spurs, inner dynamics and its potentially damaging costs – showing how, ultimately, when properly understood and harnessed, the Triple Package can put anyone on their chosen path to success.

The lives loves and deaths of splendidly unreasonable inventors is a brilliant analysis of 30 inventors who changed the world. Coller observes that personality type dictates the potential for success in bringing inventions to fruition. Few people have the full package of skills required to make a success of their idea and failure results when an individual who excels in one area of competence attempts to become all things. Coller focuses on the people, rather than the inventions, and the way in which they did or did not succeed in bringing their visions to fruition. On one level The lives loves and deaths of splendidly unreasonable inventors is a collection of fascinating stories; on another level these stories are an unconventional look at the inventive process that created such life-changing products as the telephone, the sewing machine, dynamite, the cinema, the safety razor and vulcanized rubber for tyres. Only historical figures are included, allowing Coller to examine the complete arc of their lives, from early ideas and experiments to success, and often eventual failure. Each of the stories, all of which are personal, colourful and packed with quirky nuggets of information, illustrates a particular aspect of the inventive personality.
