The sharing of nuclear weapons technology between states is unexpected, because nuclear weapons are such a powerful instrument in international politics, but sharing is not rare. This book proposes a theory to explain nuclear sharing and surveys its rich history from its beginnings in the Second World War.
Sharing is central to how we live today: it is what we do online; it is a model of economic behaviour; and it is also a type of therapeutic talk. Sharing embodies positive values such as empathy, communication, fairness, openness and equality. The Age of Sharing shows how and when sharing became caring, and explains how its meanings have changed in the digital age. But the word ?sharing? also camouflages commercial or even exploitative relations. Websites say they share data with advertisers, although in reality they sell it, while parts of the sharing economy look a great deal like rental services. Ultimately, it is argued, practices described as sharing and critiques of those practices have common roots. Consequently, the metaphor of sharing now constructs significant swathes of our social practices and provides the grounds for critiquing them; it is a mode of participation in the capitalist order as well as a way of resisting it. Drawing on nineteenth-century literature, Alcoholics Anonymous, the American counterculture, reality TV, hackers, Airbnb, Facebook and more, The Age of Sharing offers a rich account of a complex contemporary keyword. It will appeal to students and scholars of the internet, digital culture and linguistics. Nicholas John is Assistant Professor at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Todays economic system, premised on the sale of physical goods, does not fit the information age in which we live. The capitalist order requires the maintenance of an artificial scarcity in goods that have the potential for near infinite and almost free replication. The sharing of informational goods through distributed global networks - digital libraries, file-sharing, live-streaming, free software, free-access publishing, the free-sharing of scientific knowledge, and open-source pharmaceuticals - not only challenges the dominance of a scarcity-based economic system, but also enables a more efficient, innovative, just and free culture. In a series of seven explorations of contemporary sharing, Matthew David shows that in each case sharing surpasses markets, private ownership and intellectual property rights in fostering motivation, creativity, innovation, production, distribution and reward. In transforming the idea of an information economy into an information society, sharing connects struggles against inequality and poverty in developed and developing countries. Challenging taken-for-granted justifications of the status quo, Sharing debunks the tragedy of the commons and makes the case for digital network sharing as a viable mode of economic counterpower, prefiguring a post-capitalist society.

Newly submissive wife is shared with another woman as Charlotte Edwardss horny Wife Sharing series continues. Suzi, was an ordinary housewife who nearly lost her husband through being boring in the bedroom and decided to do something about it. In this story, she is introduced to the pleasures of women for the first time when her husband arranges a surprise liaison with another couple. Extract: My wife of twelve years, Suzi had always been close to the boil sexually and a reluctant submissive. Her recent weight loss of nigh on four stone had, however, not just transformed her physically from attractive and comely to drop dead gorgeous but also turned the heat up both on her sexuality and submissive nature. There was no longer any question of her refusing me anything! Her innocent face always giving her a youthful look, Suzi now appeared at least ten years younger than her thirty-six and even found herself being asked to prove her age in pubs and clubs. I finished my Champagne and Suzi took that as the signal I intended it to be to knock back her own drink, walk across the room and stand passively by my side, shedding her robe on the way.
Four years ago, Jeremy and Alice committed the ultimate taboo. After being forced to share a bed during a family reunion, brother and sister crossed the line from siblings to lovers. Swept up in a sexual fever hotter than either had felt before, they struggled to keep their relationship a secret from their family. Now Alice is married, and Jeremy is an award-winning author, but their feelings for each other havent faded. Can they leave the past behind, or will they rekindle their forbidden romance?----- PG Excerpt -----Her fingers slid over my tricep as I sat down at the counter again. You were always in good shape, she said. Dont play the false modesty card with me.No, no, no, I shot back. Youre the one who keeps saying shes gross. Thats the pot calling the kettle black.Oh? She took a sip of cocoa. So youre saying were both super-ultra-mega-hot and should stop pretending to be mere mortals?Weve already established youre a garbage person. Just be satisfied that youre a better looking garbage person than most.She tried not to smile too much into her mug. You do think I look okay, though?I squeezed her hand. What do you want me to say? Tell me what it is and Ill say it, but weve already agreed that we... Saying the rest was harder than I thought. I felt the lump rise in my throat.She chanced another shy glance in my direction. I know, she said. I know, I just...everything thats happened over the last year... She shut her eyes tight, trying to squeeze the memories out of her ears. Ive thought about you so many times. And I wanted to call just to hear your voice. But I didnt, because I was worried youd... I thought maybe you were mad at me.Not mad, I said. Just the opposite. We opened a door and it was tough going back through it.This time the glance wasnt shy at all. It was honest and sad, and steadfast. I never went back through the door, Jeremy.It was a relief to hear her say that. What wed shared four years ago was deeper and more powerful than any relationship Id ever had. I spent a long time trying to let that go, I said. Yeah... She set down her mug and pulled a loose bang behind her ear. Is it okay if I stay here, though? Not for long, just...for now?Of course, I said. I told you that.And whats the rule about sleeping in the same bed?I hadnt expected that, but there it was. For the first time she looked like her old self; she had that same mischievous smile Id grown up with, loved, and then loved in a whole new way when wed become more than siblings. The uncomfortable lump in my throat was joined by an even more uncomfortable lump in my pants, and my heart started to race. Do you really think thats a good idea, I said, after what happened last time?She nodded vigorously. No, yeah, totally. I was just joking. I know thats not appropriate. Just trying to lighten the mood.I frowned at her, and she shot a mocking frown back at me. I was the first one to break, and it was good to see her smile again. Will you hug me again, at least? she asked. I did, and she rested her face against my chest again, carefully avoiding the wet spot from last time. And make me a fire, she said in her most petulant voice. I demand a fire, big brother.It was cute, but she had already begun playing a dangerous game. The way she said big brother would always carry with it a dirty, ulterior meaning. She hadnt called me that for years. Not since the last time we were alone together on a winter night just like this...
Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich BWL - Marketing, Unternehmenskommunikation, CRM, Marktforschung, Social Media, Note: 2,3, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Diese Arbeit untersucht den Bereich des Economy Shares und des gemeinschaftlichen Konsums. Zu Beginn wird die Definition des Konsumentenverhaltens anhand der theoretischen, in der Literatur verfügbaren Modelle erörtert. Anschließend wird der gemeinschaftlichen Konsum anhand der Literatur von Botsman und Rogers untersucht und als 4Prinzipen und 3Systeme Modell dargelegt. Nachfolgend wird das Prinzip der Economy Share erörtert und deren Nach- und Vorteile gegenübergestellt. Die Verbreitung der Economy Share wird anhand des Internets und Mobiler Geräte aufgezeigt. Als wichtigster Treiber zur Verbreiterung wird die Mundpropaganda genannt. Das Ende der Arbeit bildet die Erstellung von zwei Praxisbeispielen zur Implementierung der Share Economy als Teilbereich in Unternehmen. Die Unternehmen erlangen durch die Implementierung des Sharing Economy-Teilbereichs einen Mehrwert.
This book focuses on the current research on the dynamic spectrum sharing for efficient spectrum resource utilization, which covers the overlay spectrum sharing, underlay spectrum sharing and database-assisted spectrum sharing related research issues. Followed by a comprehensive review and in-depth discussion of the current state-of-the-art research literature and industry standardization, this book first presents a novel overlay spectrum sharing framework for dynamic utilization of available cellular frequency bands, formulates the dynamic spectrum sharing problem as a dynamic resource demand-supply matching problem, and accordingly develops a distributed fast spectrum sharing algorithm to solve the resource matching problem. A self-awareness power control approach for multi-hop routing selection is proposed, which can establish an effective and practical routing selection optimization in secondary access networks and minimize the interference to primary users. Finally, this book offers dynamic secondary access scheme for database-assisted spectrum sharing networks, which is targeted to support the prosperous wireless multimedia networking applications by leveraging the TV white spaces of geolocation databases while satisfying QoS guarantees of secondary users. The overlay spectrum sharing, underlay spectrum sharing, and database-assisted white spaces spectrum sharing research results that are presented in this book provide useful insights for the design of next generation wireless access networks. This book motivates a new line of thinking for efficient spectrum resource utilization and performance enhancements of future wireless access applications.
