The Listener

  10/02/2012       maaxx      0 Comments

In his final days on this earth, John Godfrey built a beautiful sanctuary which had inscribed above its portal: The Man Who Listens. Although kept behind closed curtains, He would reveal himself to those who were truly in need and suffering people were drawn to this place at all hours of the day and night.The Listener is Taylor Caldwells inspiring story of how ordinary people find the inner peace they desperately need. Each chapter is a modern parable of someone who has lost faith in themselves, the people close to them, or the world in general. True peace, hope and happiness were restored to all who poured out their soul to Him.

Fever Dream(BDSM Ballet#2)

  10/02/2012       filuaa      0 Comments

Petra Hewitts the top ballerina in the world, and The Great Rubio her obvious counterpart, so why does she want to strangle him whenever hes around? Hes haughty, abrupt, demanding-and alarmingly sexy. Petra knows Rubio is dangerous to her heart, to her peace of mind, and worst of all, to her career, but his rough flirtation compels her. When she gets a chance to play with him at a BDSM party, their professional partnership takes a feverish left turn. After that, any attempts to keep him at arms length falter in the face of his obstinate sexuality. Rubios methods are ruthlessly erotic as he introduces her to the pleasures of sadism, bondage, pain, and submission. The more Petra tries to resist him, the more she craves his strength and control. But as they play their sensual games of dominance and submission, career pressures mount, and an overzealous fan brings dangerous tension to their relationship. Soon, the dream gives way to the stark reality of her vulnerability. Maybe, just maybe, some risks are too terrifying to take.

Micro-Organisms in Foods: Microbial Ecology of Food Commodities

  10/02/2012       humancool77      0 Comments

Microbiology of Foods 6: Microbial Ecology of Food Commodities was written by the ICMSF, compris- ing 19 scientists from II countries, plus 12 consultants and 12 chapter contributors. This book brings up to date Microbial Ecology of Foods, Volume 2: Food Commodities (1980, Academic Press), taking account of developments in food processing and packaging, new ranges of products, and foodborne pathogens that have emerged since 1980. The overall structure of each of the chapters has been retained, viz. they cover: (i) the important properties of the food commodity that affect its microbial content; (ii) the initial microbial flora at slaughter or harvest; (iii) the effect of harvesting, transportation, processing and storage on the microbial content; and (iv) the means of controlling processes and the microbial content. The section on Choice of Case has not been included in this 2nd edition, reflecting the changed emphasis in ensuring the microbi- ological safety of foods. At the time of publication of Microbial Ecology of Foods, Volume 2: Food Commodities, control of food safety was largely by inspection and compliance with hygiene regulations, coupled with end-product testing.Such testing was put on a sound statistical basis through sampling plans introduced in Microorganisms in Foods 2: Sampling for Microbiological Analysis: Principles and Specific Applications (2nd edition 1986, University of Toronto Press).

Prestižní laboratoře anglického institutu pro výzkum bakterií a virů sice byly odjakživa trnem v oku bojovníkům za práva zvířat, ale nikdo neočekával, že dojde k brutálnímu útoku a ke zničení veškerého vybavení i vypuštění všech laboratorních zvířat. Místo nich je v kleci nalezen umučený vedoucí výzkumu profesor Devon. Kam zmizelo šest pokusných opic, patrně infikovaných smrtelným virem?

Magnitude and Delay Approximation of 1-D and 2-D Digital Filters

  10/02/2012       rikson      0 Comments

There are more than 100 books on Circuit Analysis, Network Synthesis, Ana log and Digital Filters and Signal Processing written at the undergraduate and graduate level and a few more written as Reference and Handbooks. When and if they discuss the design of analog and digital filters, they treat mainly the approximation of the magnitude response of the filters and very little of their phase or group delay response. There is hardly any discussion of designing fil ters that simultaneously approximate the magnitude and group delay response of the filters. Thus most of the books routinely discuss Butterworth, Chebyshev and sometimes the Cauer or elliptic function response of the lowpass prototype filters, followed by the transformations to design highpass, bandpass and band stop filters-all of them approximating their magnitude response only. Due to the rapid progress from analog to digital communication and data transmission that has taken place in recent years, there is a greater need for designing filters that approximate both the magnitude and group delay requirements. So also is the need to design 2-dimensional digital filters, particularly those used in image processing, that approximate prescribed magnitude as well as constant group delay responses. A lot of research work has been published in professional jour nals on the design of these filters in the last 10-15 years.

Wyatts Woods

Three-hundred-and-fifty years ago, a Potawatomi Indian boy named Red Eagle carved a small bear out of limestone. It was lost during a legendary battle at Fort Mechingan, somewhere deep in the woods of what is now Door County, Wisconsin. Although searchers have tried, no sign of the fort has ever been found. While spending the summer in Door County, a boy named Wyatt decides to look for it. Meanwhile, a Potawatomi boy named Robert listens to the story of his ancestor, Red Eagle. Robert wonders, too, what happened to the fort and the carving. Finding them will unforgettably connect Wyatt, Robert and Red Eagle. But as the summer draws to an end Wyatt has still not found the fort, despite lots of help from woodland animal friends and his loyal yellow lab, Bailey. Will Fort Mechingan – and the carved bear – remain buried forever in Wisconsins Northwoods?

Flights of Nancy

  10/02/2012       neet3      0 Comments

Also posted on This Chick Reads*Copy provided by author in exchange for an honest review*Lets get something straight, Jennifer Gilby Roberts is a great chick lit author and creates uberfun chick lit stories. Few months ago I read another short story by her, Wedding Hells and absolutely enjoyed it. I found it hilarious and think its definitely one of the best short stories I have ever read.Naturally, I had high expectations for Flights of Nancy. I was immediately drawn by the cover, its very chic and girly, and Im such a huge sucker for pretty covers.The story is cute though pretty unrealistic, but I didnt mind that really. Nancy dreams of becoming a chef and having her own restaurant. When she was younger she was predicted (by a fortune teller) shes gonna meet Mr. Right on her very 24th birthday. So, the big day is here and somewhat strange (but cute) guy comes into her life with a very weird (but oh so cool) offer. He offers her a stay in a 5* hotel in Greece, and theres no catch - he just needs some company. Could he be her Mr. Right? Why is it then she doesnt feel the spark?Ok, as I said, being offered a trip to Greece by a stranger and accepting does sound silly and unrealistic. But, Im not gonna over analyze it because its obvious that this is humor and main intention is to entertain and make you laugh.Nancy is sweet and though its a short read I could actually feel her energy. I do find it hard to connect with characters from short stories/novellas because I almost always feel I didnt have the space and time to get to know them well. Of course, if there were more pages I could see more sides of her personalty, but still I saw the big picture and what I saw I definitely liked. Nancy is pretty upbeat and such a sweet girl. Bit naive too, but then again shes only 24 and has her whole life ahead of her. I cheered for her and wanted her to have her HEA and make her dream come true (become a chef). I did expect few more laughs, because like I said Wedding Hells was hilarious, but still its fun and enjoyable. Easy and short, it will definitely cheer you up after a long and exhausting day.
