Praise for Blind Spots «Shelton's open and candid style inspires trust among readers. Management teams and those making career choices can push their effectiveness up a notch with her skilled approach to facing blind spots and moving beyond them.» —Rick McNutt, Executive Vice President, National City Bank «Blind Spots gives individuals a comprehensive, but very manageable, set of tools and strategies to see themselves differently. The stories of people whose lives have been changed by Shelton's principles and techniques enhance the strategies she presents. This is a compelling book with the power to improve lives dramatically.» —Eleta A. Jones, PhD, LPC, Assistant Director, Center for Professional Development, University of Hartford «Shelton's approach to identifying blind spots goes to the heart of effective leadership. Such interest arose from this work that requests poured in for not only follow-on training regarding Blind Spots, but also for developmental coaching. Six months later, people are still talking about Blind Spots.» —Jack Bergquist, Vice President, Kaman Aerospace «When I recognized my blind spots that made me underestimate my entrepreneurial strengths, I was able to move forward to launch a successful company. This book is a must for building resilience to face the challenges of a start-up.» —Marilyn Nemarich, entrepreneur and owner, Marilyn's Pies «This book can teach you how to see inside yourself. As I was reading it, I kept thinking of the song On a Clear Day You Can See Forever. Learning about your blind spots leads to clear sight, which can create possibilities for innovation and growth.» —Jane Hunt, Assistant Vice President for Executive Development, The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc.

In this book we show how seemingly ideal boards, those with "best practice" size, composition, and structure, can still fail to provide good governance simply because they fall victim to problems inherent in all groups. While having groups of board members provide corporate oversight is probably necessary, and even advantageous in some respects, groups have a dark side too. Tendencies that occur in group behavior can destroy or obscure the talents even of highly intelligent, energetic, and well-intended individuals, causing collective blind spots, biases, and inefficiencies that can render boards ineffective. Groups often perceive risks differently from the way individual group members do and collectively fail to see problems where they really exist.
Blind identification consists of estimating a multi-dimensional system only through the use of its output, and source separation, the blind estimation of the inverse of the system. Estimation is generally carried out using different statistics of the output. The authors of this book consider the blind identification and source separation problem in the complex-domain, where the available statistical properties are richer and include non-circularity of the sources – underlying components. They define identifiability conditions and present state-of-the-art algorithms that are based on algebraic methods as well as iterative algorithms based on maximum likelihood theory. Contents 1. Mathematical Preliminaries. 2. Estimation by Joint Diagonalization. 3. Maximum Likelihood ICA. About the Authors Eric Moreau is Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Toulon, France. His research interests concern statistical signal processing, high order statistics and matrix/tensor decompositions with applications to data analysis, telecommunications and radar. Tülay Adali is Professor of Electrical Engineering and Director of the Machine Learning for Signal Processing Laboratory at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, USA. Her research interests concern statistical and adaptive signal processing, with an emphasis on nonlinear and complex-valued signal processing, and applications in biomedical data analysis and communications. Blind identification consists of estimating a multidimensional system through the use of only its output. Source separation is concerned with the blind estimation of the inverse of the system. The estimation is generally performed by using different statistics of the outputs. The authors consider the blind estimation of a multiple input/multiple output (MIMO) system that mixes a number of underlying signals of interest called sources. They also consider the case of direct estimation of the inverse system for the purpose of source separation. They then describe the estimation theory associated with the identifiability conditions and dedicated algebraic algorithms. The algorithms depend critically on (statistical and/or time frequency) properties of complex sources that will be precisely described.
'Boyd on form is the ultimate in immersive fiction, and Love is Blind is Boyd at the top of his game . . . magnificent' Sunday Times 'A finely judged performance: a deft and resonant alchemy of fact and fiction, of literary myth and imagination' Guardian Book of the Week This is William Boyd's sweeping, heart-stopping new novel. Set at the end of the 19th century, it follows the fortunes of Brodie Moncur, a young Scottish musician, about to embark on the story of his life. When Brodie is offered a job in Paris, he seizes the chance to flee Edinburgh and his tyrannical clergyman father, and begin a wildly different new chapter in his life. In Paris, a fateful encounter with a famous pianist irrevocably changes his future - and sparks an obsessive love affair with a beautiful Russian soprano, Lika Blum. Moving from Paris to St Petersburg to Edinburgh and back again, Brodie's love for Lika and its dangerous consequences pursue him around Europe and beyond, during an era of overwhelming change as the nineteenth century becomes the twentieth. Love is Blind is a tale of dizzying passion and brutal revenge; of artistic endeavour and the illusions it creates; of all the possibilities that life can offer, and how cruelly they can be snatched away. At once an intimate portrait of one man's life and an expansive exploration of the beginning of the twentieth century, Love is Blind is a masterly new novel from one of Britain's best loved storytellers. 'Boyd is back on a form few of ...

Deep Purple Rises Over Japan 30 Minute Concert Recorded Live At The Budokan Hall, Japan On December 15, 1975 Never Released Before - Fully Restored In HD And Newly Mixed In 5.1 Audio 01. Burn 02. Love Child 03. Smoke On The Water 04. You Keep On Moving 05. Highway Star Gettin' Tighter - 80 Minute Music Documentary This is the first Blu-ray to document Deep Purple's turbulent last year before the band originally split in 1976, and includes exclusive new interviews with Glenn Hughes and founding member Jon Lord who open the lid to the problems that beset the band as they toured the world: Death, drugs and devastation, which led to their eventual disbandment. Archived footage from the tour includes interviews with Tommy Bolin, David Coverdale and Ian Paice, while rare and previously unreleased concert footage includes performances of Purple classics 'Smoke On The Water', 'Burn' and 'Highway Star'. Live versions of 'Love Child' and 'You Keep On Moving' from the MKIV line-up's one and only album 'Come Taste The Band' also featured as part of the previously unreleased film 'Deep Purple Rises Over Japan' - included in full, within this Blu-ray. Other highlights of this extraordinary and powerful documentary include film from the start of the tour in Hawaii, through New Zealand & Australia, plus the coup de grace recently discovered, previously unseen footage from the infamous concerts in Jakarta, Indonesia. Possibly the darkest point in Purple's career that saw the band ripped off t...
