It was capable of being used against up to 6 different targets each. This made it capable of simultaneously destroying 24 targets 1 F-14. Their targeting component was a self radar generating system.

Longlisted for the National Book Award | New York Times BestsellerA former Wall Street quant sounds an alarm on the mathematical models that pervade modern life and threaten to rip apart our social fabric.We live in the age of the algorithm. Increasingly, the decisions that affect our lives—where we go to school, whether we get a car loan, how much we pay for health insurance—are being made not by humans, but by mathematical models. In theory, this should lead to greater fairness: Everyone is judged according to the same rules, and bias is eliminated.But as Cathy O’Neil reveals in this urgent and necessary book, the opposite is true. The models being used today are opaque, unregulated, and uncontestable, even when they’re wrong. Most troubling, they reinforce discrimination: If a poor student can’t get a loan because a lending model deems him too risky (by virtue of his zip code), he’s then cut off from the kind of education that could pull him out of poverty, and a vicious spiral ensues. Models are propping up the lucky and punishing the downtrodden, creating a “toxic cocktail for democracy.” Welcome to the dark side of Big Data.Tracing the arc of a person’s life, O’Neil exposes the black box models that shape our future, both as individuals and as a society...
Praise for Leadership for a Better World "What a powerful, very needed, and welcome sequel to A Social Change Model for Leadership Development Guidebook.

Stephanie McClure and Cherise A. Harris’s Second Thoughts on Race in the United States: Hoodies, Model Minorities, and Real Americans is an edited collection of short essays that address the most common misconceptions about race held by students (and by many in the United States, in general)―it is a "one-stop shopping" reader on the racial topics most often pondered by students and derived from their interests and concerns. There is no existing reader that summarizes the research across a range of topics in a consistent, easily accessible format and considers the evidence against particular racial myths in the language that students themselves use.

Galco International was founded by Richard N. Gallagher in 1969 as a small family business in Chicago, Illinois. Known then as the famous jackass leather company, Gallagher specialized in holsters constructed of horsehide. In 1980 the business was moved from Chicago to its present home in Phoenix, Arizona, and in 1983 the name of the company was changed to galco International. ALREADY famous for high quality and innovative designs, galco gained worldwide notoriety when the jackass shoulder system became a recurring character on the popular 1980's TV Series Miami vice. In the new century, galco continues to be a favorite choice of Hollywood, appearing in more films and TV shows than any other holster maker. Perhaps more importantly, galco remains a Major force in real-world firearms usage. Law enforcement personnel around the nation and across the world - from local departments to the largest Federal agencies - are issued and use galco products. Galco's array of law enforcement products ranges from concealment holsters to rifle slings approved by the National Tactical officer's Association.
