This book explores the challenges faced by the Japanese economy and the Japanese banking industry following the financial crisis that emerged around the turn of the last millennium. The author explores how the Japanese financial crisis of the late 1990s engendered huge restructuring efforts in the banking industry, which eventually led to even more sweeping changes of the economic system and long-term deflation in the 2000s. The discussion begins with an overview of the unconventional monetary policy launched by the Bank of Japan at this time, while banking administrative policies maintained their strict code of governance. The author describes how, just as recovery seemed possible, the twin disasters of the Lehman shock and the Great East Japan Earthquake buffeted the recovering economy, and pushed Japan again into deflation. The book also looks to the very recent past, with the sudden advent of Abenomics in 2013, with its three-pronged approach, which was intended to break the deflationary mindset. Finally, the author projects what the future of the banking industry in Japan might encompass, as looming demographic changes gradually threaten both the economy and the banking industry. Mitsuhiko Nakano is a Professor at St. Andrews University in Japan. His research interests focus specifically on the themes of banking and business systems, banking management, and financial administration policy. Having worked at a major bank during the period of time covered in this book, he uses his own extensive practical experience to analyse the economic effects of banking.

This book presents a detailed discussion of intelligent techniques to measure the displacement of buildings when they are subjected to vibration. It shows how these techniques are used to control active devices that can reduce vibration 60-80% more effectively than widely used passive anti-seismic systems. After introducing various structural control devices and building-modeling and active structural control methods, the authors propose offset cancellation and high-pass filtering techniques to solve some common problems of building-displacement measurement using accelerometers. The most popular control algorithms in industrial settings, PD/PID controllers, are then analyzed and then combined with fuzzy compensation. The stability of this combination is proven with standard weight-training algorithms. These conditions provide explicit methods for selecting PD/PID controllers. Finally, fuzzy-logic and sliding-mode control are applied to the control of wind-induced vibration. The methods described are supported by reports of experimental studies on a two-story building prototype. This book is a valuable resource for academic researchers interested in the effects of control and mechatronic devices within buildings, or those studying the principles of vibration reduction. Practicing engineers working on the design and construction of any sort of high-rise or vulnerable building and concerned with the effects of either wind or seismic disturbances benefit from the efficacy of the methods proposed. Wen Yu received the B.S. degree from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in 1990 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees, both in Electrical Engineering, from Northeastern University, Shenyang, China, in 1992 and 1995, respectively. From 1995 to 1996, he served as a Lecturer in the Department of Automatic Control at Northeastern University, Shenyang, China. In 1996, he joined CINVESTAV-IPN, Mexico, where he is currently a professor in the Departamento de Control Automatico. He held research positions with the Instituto Mexicano del Petroleo from 2002 to 2003. He was a senior visiting research fellow at Queens University Belfast from 2006 to 2007, a visiting associate professor at University of California Santa Cruz from 2009 to 2010. He also holds a visiting professorship at Northeastern University in China from 2006 until now. Dr.Wen Yu serves as an associate editor of Neurocomputing, and Journal of Intelligent and Fuzzy Systems. He is a member of Mexican Academy of Science.
Deputy Sheriff James Darcy has been chasing after Jude since high school, when she showed up out of nowhere and gave him a black eye for picking on a freshman. For just as long, Jude has been running away from James and all the things he makes her feel. As Johnson County begins to burn around them in the midst of scandal, they will have to sideline their chase and work together to save The Stables, their friends, and the entire county from the fires of corruption. The corruption in Johnson County runs deep and old, though, and it will force Jude and James to dredge up unwanted memories and face misunderstood pasts if they have any hope of building a future together. Set in Texas, The Stables is a Contemporary Romance series with light BDSM elements and mature themes. James The first thought that crosses my mind as my boot heels clack against the old wooden porch is that I really shouldn´t be here. In fact, I should probably be anywhere but here. God have mercy, I´ve finally lost my damn mind. Fisting my shaking hand, I knock three times on the door. A heavy sigh exhales as the hand falls back to my side, and my heart races against my chest. So many times, I´ve thought about this moment. About being here where I shouldn´t be. About giving in to what I´ve wanted for so long. And before this house, this porch and this quaint neighborhood, it was the five trailers over from my mom´s, in Alvarado´s only official trailer park. Back then, we´d both been dirt poor and fighting to raise our heads against circumstances. Back then, Jude still didn´t give me the time of day unless she was beating my ass for being an idiot. Why is it on Friday nights I can play the Dom as easy as second nature, but the rest of the time I´m dancing to the crack of her whip? I´m a bit of a Switch, I know, but I´m no pure submissive. Except when it comes to Judith, and it´s so damn confusing. Jude Once again, I´m running. Sitting there, in Crow´s warm, strong arms had set my heart racing. I wonder if he could feel it pounding against my chest; if he knew that samba rhythm was for him. My heart has always skipped a little beat when he´s near – ever since that first day in the parking lot of Alvarado High, when I punched him in the gut for picking on a freshman. Then, we´d ended up on the same bus home and got off at the same trailer park – the only one in Alvarado´s picturesque rural paradise. He teased me about my ripped jeans and the yellow ribbon in my hair. I gave him a black eye. I swear it was love at first sight. Twelve years later, and I´m still in love with that damn crow. Twelve years later, and I´m still running away from him.
When most women go through a mid-life crisis, they start a diet, get plastic surgery, or have an affair. My life went to the dogs...and horses...and llamas... and did I mention happy hour with the goats? My urban world came apart, so I took a leap of faith and crash-landed on a dilapidated would-be horse farm on the flat, windy, treeless prairie of Colorado. It was a place where white horses turn pink at sunrise and I didnt have to worry about locking the back entry to the house, because the door was missing. The biggest social event of any week was greeting the trash man on Tuesday. And what should I do about the deceased llama in the laundry room? Any decent midlife crisis has a quality of time travel, in this case swinging back to my childhood farm and my disconnected, secretive family, then forward to the animals who became my family on the prairie. My dogs and horses were soon joined by some line-dancing llamas and a biker-gang of goat kids, defying gravity and every other rule. I rescued an abused donkey who told me he was Ernest, and Windy, an un-wanted chestnut mare who became our beloved herd matriarch. Even Fred, the duck lived by a code. Its the memoir of my bittersweet transition from a mid-life orphan to a modern pioneer woman, building an entirely different kind of family farm. Stable Relation appeals to all animal lovers, midlife survivors, and anyone whose parents had problems of their own. Its told in a strong, bittersweet voice, sharing life and death on a small farm and the healing power of animals: James Herriot meets Janette Walls.
