What I write in this book is an expose of NSA and CIA spy operations. Read how a UBS employee got caught up in an expose of NSA domestic spying that led to either riches or jail. Tells the story of being mistaken for a CIA agent. After getting mistaken for a rogue CIA agent, he got setup, and nearly killed but escaped the spy and police dragnet. Alarmed at offers of $200,000 per year and not wanting to accept the offers for fear of them being another setup, he ignored, ""An offer he couldn't refuse."" When he turned down double the last offer, he got sent home in California by the U.S. Embassy. Another UBS employee Christopher Meilli exposed theft of Holocaust survivors money and deposit records. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Mr. Meilli was asked about moneylaundering in the belief he was me and that I had flown from Tokyo to Zurich and infiltrated UBS security to get the goods on them. Check out the memoir that got used by a 20th Century Fox production that won award and millions.

The incredible true story of the PI Moms scam and the small-time reporter who exposed it: “A jaw-dropping tale of ambition, crime, and reality TV” (Ira Glass, host of NPR’s This American Life). In 2010, an unbelievable story came across the desk of Diablo magazine lifestyle reporter Pete Crooks. The pitch went like this: Retired cop Chris Butler ran a private investigation firm in Concord, California, staffed entirely by soccer moms. Sexy and smart, these women were the real-life Charlie’s Angels—trained in investigation, self-defense, and weaponry. Butler and his PI Moms had already been featured in People magazine and on Dr. Phil. Now Butler’s publicist was offering Crooks an opportunity to ride along with them as they prepared to start filming a reality TV show. But after the ride-along, and a few mysterious emails, Crooks found himself chasing a very different kind of story. It turned out the “sting” he’d witnessed had been an elaborate setup. The more he learned about Butler’s operation, the more Crooks realized he was in far over his head—deep in the underbelly of fraud, police corruption, drug-dealing, and people willing to do anything for fame. “You are going to laugh a lot . . . Only a true noir fan could have done such a bang-up job.” —Beth Lisick, New York Times–bestselling author of Everybody into the Pool

“A throwback Southern California mystery in modern pinstripes . . . A treat for readers of mystery or baseball novels.” —KIRKUS REVIEWS Johnny Adcock is an aging Major League pitcher with the perfect retirement plan—he moonlights as a private investigator. Major League Baseball, as it turns out, is a prime source of employment for a philosophically inclined, discreet detective who has both the brains and the brawn to handle the unique problems of professional athletes. Those infamous baseball salaries attract gangsters, hustlers, and predators of every persuasion who prey on the outsized egos of primetime stars. When players, coaches, agents, or wives have a problem they can't make public, they call Johnny Adcock. On the team bus after a game, teammate Frankie Herrera confides in Adcock that he has a “problem with his wife.” What sounds like the standard story of a pro athlete's marriage gone sour quickly turns into the most dangerous case of Adcock's second career when Frankie is killed in a car accident, leaving far too many questions unanswered. The investigation takes Adcock into uncharted territory, drawing him into a deadly ring of murder, porn, Mexican cartels, and a conspiracy that threatens to become the biggest scandal to hit baseball since HGH and steroids. A new heavy hitter on the thriller scene, T. T. Monday takes readers inside a rich and highly entertaining world where crime and baseball intersect and delivers a debut that moves like a 96-mile-an-hour fastball. From the Hardcover edition.

A MEDDLING MOM--who's been trying to set me up all summer.Now, I understand it's not a crime for a mother to want her child to fall in love, but when she makes it her relentless MISSION, the heinous act should be classified as a misdemeanor at least.Of course, my mom, the evil matriarch in the devil's leggings, made her final stab at finding a girl for me days before I went back to college.And I hate to admit it, but she saved a doozy for last. A titan in black skinny jeans. A boss of nonchalance. And a girl who would not only turn my life upside down, but do it while juggling a soccer ball, looking effortlessly gorgeous around campus, and is one hundred percent against relationships. Of any sort. Thanks, Mom.

The first day she was sitting by herself - I felt sorry for her. After all, it couldn't be easy wrangling all the testosterone at Wingmen Inc as one of the only female office managers. The second day she literally counted her carrots during break - she had seven by the way, right along with seven sips of her drink in between taking seven tiny little bites of the first carrot. Now I'm not one to brag, or maybe I am, but math and science fascinate me, so do problems. And this woman screamed puzzle from the way she ducked her head every time anyone looked at her, to the way she counted food and tapped the table when she didn't think anyone was watching. I'd like to think I took pity on her that day when, in fact, she was the one that took pity on me and asked if I needed a friend. She assumed I had a learning disability since I'd been staring so damn hard. Things would have ended there, except, my bosses need someone to test the new Wingmen App and since I was the only single guy on the floor - I was nominated, right along with the only single woman, the same one who thinks I need to use my fingers to count. Apparently rumors of my sexcapades throughout college reached even her ears, because she wants nothing to do with me, which makes beta testing a bitch. I have thirty days to win her over and prove myself to my bosses. One thing's for certain, I'm going to have to buy a hell of a lot of carrots.

The book considers the lot-sizing and scheduling problem for flexible flow line production facilities. Flexible flow lines are flow lines with parallel machines on some or all production stages. They can be found in a vast number of industries. A three-phased solution approach is presented that solves the integrated lot-sizing and scheduling problem in a hierarchical manner. The approach is able to handle several important features relevant in industrial practice, such as back-orders and setup carry-over. The developed solution procedures solve practically sized problems in a relatively short amount of time. One of the procedures is based on a novel mixed integer programming (MIP) model, which employs integer variables instead of binary variables. This makes it possible to find (near-)optimal solutions using standard algorithms such as CPLEX. Another procedure uses two nested Genetic Algorithms. An application of the framework in the semiconductor industry is given.

In 1988, the British government launched the Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine, even though central figures knew that the vaccine could cause brain damage, autism, and other problems. The Setup traces the extended efforts made by drug companies, with help from the British government, to cover up their responsibility for putting a vaccine known to be damaging on the market. It details the way public relations companies, social media, legal teams, judges, and reporters all utilized covert media tactics and public statements to deceive, ultimately leading to the British General Medical Council (GMC) initiating the famous trial against Andrew Wakefield, Professor Walker-Smith, and Dr. Simon Murch. The vaccine was on the market for over four years, but the parents of the nearly 1,600 affected were not only excluded from that trial but are still awaiting their day in court. Instead, they have all had to shoulder an immense financial burden and many have become the subject of court actions over spurious charges. The trial also destroyed Wakefield’s reputation—despite the fact that within months, a high court judge declared Walker-Smith innocent on the grounds that the GMC panel, acting as jury, had misunderstood the evidence. Any parent whose child has become sick after a vaccine will appreciate the dedication of investigator Martin J. Walker, and his exposure of a cover-up the British government and pharmaceutical companies hoped to hide forever.
