Dieses Buch betrifft uns alle Sie waren notwendig, um Fortschritte gegen Krebs und AIDS zu erzielen. Klonen und Genforschung wäre ohne sie nicht möglich gewesen. Kurz: Die größten Erfolge der Medizin der letzten Jahrzehnte basieren auf der Entdeckung der HeLa-Zellen. Hinter dem Kürzel verbirgt sich eine Frau namens Henrietta Lacks. Die Afroamerikanerin aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen starb 1951 jung an Gebärmutterhalskrebs. Zuvor wurden ihr ohne ihr Wissen Zellproben entnommen, die sich überraschenderweise vermehrten. Damit war der entscheidende Durchbruch in der Zellkulturforschung geschafft. Die prämierte Wissenschaftsjournalistin Rebecca Skloot stellt in ihrem brillant verfassten Buch wichtige Jahrzehnte der Medizingeschichte vor und wirft dabei immer wieder ethische Fragen auf. Sie erzählt die tragische Familiengeschichte der Lacks’, die von Rassismus und mangelnden Bildungschancen geprägt ist. Ihr Buch ist eine gekonnte Mischung aus Biografie, Medizingeschichte, Debattenbuch und beachtlichem Enthüllungsjournalismus.

Ensure Basel III compliance with expert analysis specific to Islamic Finance Islamic Capital Markets and Products provides a thorough examination of Islamic capital markets (ICM), with particular attention to the products that they offer and the legal and regulatory infrastructure within which they operate. Since Islamic banks act as asset managers, attention is paid to the regulatory challenges which they face in the light of Basel III, as regards both eligible capital and liquidity risk management. The authors of the chapters are professionals and practitioners, and write from experience. The editors also contributed to some of the chapters. The markets and products covered include Islamic equities, Islamic investment certificates (Sukūk) which are Shari'ah compliant alternatives to conventional bonds, and Islamic Collective Investment Schemes. The coverage of legal and regulatory issues includes an examination of the implications for ICM of securities laws and regulations and of Basel III, as well as collateralisation issues. Shari'ah compliance aspects, in terms both of the selection criteria for Islamic equities and of the 'purification' of impermissible components of income, are also examined in some detail, as are the implications of Basel III for eligible capital in general and for Shari'ah compliant capital instruments in particular. A similar analysis is also made of the implications of the Basel III requirements for liquidity risk management and high quality liquid assets (HQLA), including Shari'ah compliant HQLA. The book concludes with three case studies, two describing the ICM in Malaysia and Bahrain and a third which describes Sukūk issued as Shari'ah compliant capital instruments, followed by brief concluding remarks by the editors.

Warum scheitern so viele Startups und neue Produkte? Und wie kann man die Chancen deutlich erhohen, mit einer Innovation erfolgreich zu sein? Als Antwort auf diese Fragen hat Ash Maurya die in diesem Buch vorgestellte Methode entwickelt, die auf Strategien des Lean Management und der agilen Entwicklung aufbaut und speziell auf Innovationsprozesse zugeschnitten ist. Der Trick besteht darin, fruhzeitig, konsequent und in allen Projektphasen potenzielle Kunden in den Entwicklungsprozess einzubeziehen und das eigene Geschaftsmodell immer wieder zu hinterfragen. Ein entscheidendes Tool ist dabei die "Lean Canvas," ein Template, das eine einfache Visualisierung des Businessplans ermoglicht und erheblich einfacher zu erfassen und zu uberarbeiten ist als die ublichen, viele Seiten starken Konzeptpapiere. Ash Maurya hat die Methode anhand eigener Projekte entwickelt und erfolgreich getestet. In Running Lean erlautert er sie ganz praktisch mit Schritt-fur-Schritt-Anleitungen anhand eines konkreten Beispiels. Alle Schritte konnen einfach nachvollzogen und auf die eigenen Innovationsprojekte angewandt werden. Die Lean Canvas sowie die Fragebogen fur Kundeninterviews lassen sich direkt aus dem Buch ubernehmen. Ein Problem identifizieren, das viele Menschen umtreibt, und eine Losung dafur definieren. Die Kunden in den gesamten Entwicklungsprozess einbinden. Das Produkt / die Idee kontinuierlich testen, in immer kurzeren Iterationszyklen. Erkennen, wann die Marschrichtung geandert werden sollte. Entwicklungsgeschwindigkeit, Erkenntnisprozesse und Ausrichtung optimieren. Den idealen Zeitpunkt fur Finanzierungsrunden finden.
