Der Memory Man ist zurück! Seit einem Unfall kann Amos Decker, der Memory Man, nichts mehr vergessen. Fast wäre er an den unlöschbaren Bildern seiner traumatischen Vergangenheit zerbrochen. Aber nun hat er ein neues Lebensziel gefunden: Innerhalb einer Spezialeinheit des FBI klärt er ungelöste Schwerverbrechen. In seinem ersten Fall geht es um Melvin Mars, der seit zwanzig Jahren in der Todeszelle sitzt. Er soll seine eigenen Eltern ermordet haben. Doch Stunden vor seiner geplanten Exekution taucht ein Mann auf und behauptet, der Schuldige zu sein. Kann Decker ihm glauben? Ist Melvin Mars unschuldig und muss vor der Todesstrafe bewahrt werden? Oder wird ein hochgefährlicher Mörder auf freien Fuß gesetzt? Als ein Mitglied aus Deckers Team plötzlich spurlos verschwindet, zeigt sich bald, dass der Fall eine noch viel tiefergehende gesellschaftliche Sprengkraft birgt.

In his #1 New York Times bestseller Memory Man, David Baldacci introduced the extraordinary detective Amos Decker-the man who can forget nothing. Now, Decker returns in a spectacular new thriller . . . THE LAST MILE Convicted murderer Melvin Mars is counting down the last hours before his execution--for the violent killing of his parents twenty years earlier--when he's granted an unexpected reprieve. Another man has confessed to the crime. Amos Decker, newly hired on an FBI special task force, takes an interest in Mars's case after discovering the striking similarities to his own life: Both men were talented football players with promising careers cut short by tragedy. Both men's families were brutally murdered. And in both cases, another suspect came forward, years after the killing, to confess to the crime. A suspect who may or may not have been telling the truth. The confession has the potential to make Melvin Mars--guilty or not--a free man. Who wants Mars out of prison? And why now? But when a member of Decker's team disappears, it becomes clear that something much larger--and more sinister--than just one convicted criminal's life hangs in the balance. Decker will need all of his extraordinary brainpower to stop an innocent man from being executed.

Der Markt für Onlineportale, die Produkte für EndkonsumentInnen verkaufen, ist in den vergangenen Jahren mit unglaublicher Geschwindigkeit gewachsen. Dabei ist es äußerst interessant zu beobachten, dass Güter des nicht täglichen Gebrauches wie Bücher, Textilien, Musik und Elektronik wesentlich häufiger im Vergleich zu Lebensmitteln online bestellt werden. In dieser Studie sollen die Besonderheiten hinsichtlich der Zustellung von Lebensmittel zu den EndkonsumentInnen anhand mehrerer Gesichtspunkte eingehend analysiert werden. Sie versucht vor allem die Herausforderungen und die Potentiale der Zustellung von Lebensmittel zu untersuchen. Zentrale Forschungsfragen sind hierbei die Möglichkeiten der derzeit existierenden Zustellungsmöglichkeiten der Onlinelebensmittelhändler, der Einfluss der Ausgestaltung der Logistik, die Präferenzen der Konsumenten an die Zustellung und, in welchen Zustellmethoden ein zukünftiges Potential liegen mag.

The last mile is the longest... In the final book in the acclaimed Lithia Trilogy, Kat has new losses to mourn but also new reasons to live. On the brink of new beginnings, she is back together with Roman, their relationship deepening more and more even as she wonders whether she may still harbor feelings for Alex. Yet Kat finds it difficult to focus on such things as college and romance, with terror still haunting the hills of Lithia and threatening the entire town. As several recent earthquakes baffle scientists and put residents on edge, it seems that something more dangerous may be looming in Lithia’s future. Trying to balance a busy life while keeping Lithia safe isn’t easy—and soon Kat realizes that nothing is a higher priority than saving her hometown, along with its abundance of land and animals, from devastation. The only problem is that she can’t find a way to do this without leaving Lithia forever—or risking her own life and the lives of those she loves. And her future with Roman appears as unsteady as the ground under her feet… In a novel that weaves together stories of love, the environment, and Shakespeare, the natural and supernatural worlds collide in this stunning conclusion to the Lithia Trilogy. Don't miss the other two books in the Lithia Trilogy: Out of Breath and The Ghost Runner.

Viewed from a global scale, steady progress has been made in reducing extreme poverty—defined by the $1.25-a-day poverty line—over the past three decades. This success has sparked renewed enthusiasm about the possibility of eradicating extreme poverty within a generation. However, progress is expected to become more difficult, and slower, over time. This book will examine three central changes that need to be overcome in traveling the last mile: breaking cycles of conflict, supporting inclusive growth, and managing shocks and risks. By uncovering new evidence and identifying new ideas and solutions for spurring peace, jobs, and resilience in poor countries, The Last Mile in Ending Extreme Poverty will outline an agenda to inform poverty reduction strategies for governments, donors, charities, and foundations around the world.

Due to the latest catastrophes caused by both man and nature, humanitarian logistics has received increasing interest from academics, practitioners and specialists. These interests are increased as well by an expanding market of disaster relief and by the fact that disaster relief supply chains are complex and dynamic, not to mention that they have a lot of uncertainties that make operations very complicated. Especially in disaster relief, the supply chains have to be fast, agile and flexible in order to rapidly provide the appropriate amount, and type of emergency supplies, to minimize human suffering or death. The last mile distribution is the final stage of the disaster relief supply chain, i.e. the delivery of relief supplies from local distribution centres to beneficiaries affected by disasters.The aim of this paper is to give an overview of supply chains in disaster relief, identify the main problems of the last mile distribution in disaster relief operations, describe optimization possibilities of the private sector, and examine the applicability for disaster situations.
