The IMF is the first economic institution in line to protect countries from the effects of financial crises and to insulate the world economy from possible systemic risk. However, many argue that the IMF is insufficiently equipped to do this job, while others argue almost the opposite: the IMF's well-intentioned actions induce other countries to take risks which increase their exposure from both universities and the multilateral agencies, combines rigourous economic analysis with insider perspectives on key policy debates. It analyses the Asian and Argentine financial crises of the late 1990s, issues of policy ownership, the more general quest for financial stability and governance of the IMF. It is an essential reference for anyone interested in the role of international financial institutions in our globalised economy.

The study of animal viruses contributes to the general understanding of the molecular basis of viral infection. The emergence of the SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) virus in the human population, coming from an animal source, highlights the importance of animals in harboring infectious agents. In addition, it has been recognized recently that influenza viruses, which persist in their natural avian host, can directly infect humans. In this book, an international panel of leading virologists provide a state-of-the-art overview of the field, comprehensively detailing the current understanding of viruses, their replication, evolution, and interaction with the host. The authors emphasize strategic and methodological aspects of current research, and provide key related references. Topics include foot-and-mouth disease virus, Pestivirus, Arteriviridae, Coronaviruses (including SARS), Herpesviridae, Paramyxoviridae, influenza viruses, Reoviridae, porcine circoviruses, Asfarviridae and much more.

The Message of the Kingdom

You’ve heard the lies. Now, learn the truth - if you dare! Prepare yourself for a real eye opener! Take off your rose colored glasses before you read this one, because it is probably the most controversial and revealing book ever written! The truth is more precious than the purest gold, and it has been said: the “truth is stranger than fiction”. The latter is very true in Satan’s world of lies and deception, as will be revealed, for this book shakes the very foundations of most world religions, age old philosophies, and creation theories. However, only the emotionally mature, the truly open minded, and the intellectually brave should explore this book, for the knowledge obtained can alienate as well as enlighten those who discover these truths! There is much truth to be found in these pages, but this book was not written for the masses but for the “few who seek” and love the truth more than their own lives! We are now in The End of Days! The last five years of increase in intensity and number of hurricanes, tornadoes, droughts, and floods (caused mostly by global warming!) plus a significant increase in famine, incurable diseases, terrorism, and instability in the Middle East attest to that conclusion! It’s time for the truth in religion, politics, UFO’s, extraterrestrials, creation theories, and the future of mankind and Planet, Earth! Lies and myth have been perpetuated throughout the centuries. With the dawning of a new era, it is time the predestined purpose and nature of humanity and the true identity and nature of The Creator be revealed to those who desire and seek it. The reader will discover how Satan “has deceived the whole world” through false teachers and mistranslation. Evolution and Creationism (or Creation Science) along with other scientific methods are merged into an easy to understand synthesis, for both have some validity in the creation of the universe. “The straight and narrow way” that leads to eternal life is made plain and easy to understand, and it is the same religion found in The Messiah’s message expressed nearly 2000 years ago, which, believe it or not is not and was not: Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, nor most versions of Judaism! The Creator is described as all knowing and omnipotent in spirit as well as in physical and scientific terms. For example, he and his host have the power to appear and disappear as Spirit Beings, or they can choose to take physical form and travel about the universe in their “chariots of fire” via wormholes at incredible speeds. Time and space are of no consequence to The Eternal One and his Heavenly Host, for they have long ago conquered both. They rule and nurture all life in the universe and will soon return to rule Planet Earth, when “The Seed” they have planted has come into fruition. At his Messiah’s coming, his “clouds of glory” will be so numerous, “the sun will be darkened and the moon will not shed its light”! Earthquakes, floods, droughts, tornadoes, hurricanes, volcanoes, famine, disease, wars, terrorism, and economic woes will continue to increase in intensity and frequency as the Four Horsemen of The Apocalypse come to full gallop as the time of the end approaches. The author predicted the recent increase in terrorism and natural disasters with the first edition of this book in 1996, which was drafted in 1989! Time is running out for man as we know him! A relatively rare breed of human will “inherit the earth” as “The Wheat” described in Matthew 5:3-10 & 13:23 planted as his “seed of righteousness” 6,000 years ago in Adam. NOTE: This book does not call for any violence, Jihad, or “Holy War” against any government or religion. For, “those who live by the sword shall die by the sword”. Vengeance is mine says “The Most High”, and when his “Day of Indignation” has come, rest assured, vengeance will be duly executed! For, “they come from a far country, from the end of Heaven - even the Most High and the weapons of indignation to destroy the whole land” (Isaiah 13:5). “Behold, they shall come with fire and chariots like the whirlwind” (Isaiah 66:15). And what do these chariots look like? “Their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel” (Ezek 1:16). Now look again at the front cover! Get the picture - what the “clouds of glory” really look like? The reader will discover the science behind magic and the truth behind myth. This is a last chance calling for those who love truth and are found worthy to be “saved” from the coming destruction and allowed to live in the coming wonderful world and rule with the Messiah for 1000 years. This writing constitutes fulfillment of the prophecy of the “Message of the Kingdom” as correctly translated in Mark 13:10 & Matthew 24:14, which is to be published/preached into all the world” just before The End of The Age.

In the fifteen years since the U.S. Army Space Command (USARSPACE) was activated, soldiers from this command have pioneered innovative and revolutionary ways for employing space capabilities on behalf of the warfighter. At the time this history was sent to press, Army space soldiers were deployed worldwide in support of a variety of critical missions. Army space support units were present during combat operations in Afghanistan in 2001 and Iraq in 2003, providing force enhancement, missile attack warning, and information operations support to commanders in the U.S. Central Command area of operations. Other Army space soldiers, working in both the United States and overseas, delivered the worldwide long-haul satellite communications support and other space products needed to maintain an effective military deterrent in Korea and other areas. As these examples attest, Army space soldiers are today playing an important role across the entire spectrum of operations. This history considers the establishment and subsequent evolution of the Army Space Support Team (ARSST) organization, created to provide space products and expertise to field units, thereby enhancing their intelligence and operational planning capabilities. This history focuses on the period from 1986 to 1998, when a handful of soldiers and civilians experimenting with new technologies and concepts sought to leverage the "ultimate high ground" on behalf of the land force. The history discusses the hard-won lessons learned through repeated deployments and exercises, calling attention to their illustrations and setbacks as well as to their many successes. Ultimately, it seeks to explain how those early visionaries established a foundation for the progress that the Army has achieved over the past five years, as illustrated by the importance of space in today's land combat operations, and how these early lessons continue to provide valuable insights for the Army as it transforms for the future.
