Product Description
In this, a collection of profiles of the famous, infamous, and nearly famous of the last quarter century, the writers and editors of "Philadelphia" magazine have assembled some of the greatest writing from the pages of their magazine. Included in this reader are essays on athletes, like Mike Schmidt and Dr. J; captains of industry, including Brian Roberts; and of course, the politicians: Governor Rendell, Mayor Goode, and many other civic leaders. Performers and personalities, like Patti LaBelle and Terry Gross, also fill the pages, sometimes with their own words, and sometime presented through the writing of some our city's most gifted journalists. "The Philadelphia Reader" will be the book to read in the city this year, and is an indispensable handbook to knowing the great cast of players that have given our city its characters and our stories. ...

Product Description
Bob Huber's transparent honesty and faithful obedience to God shine through in his first book,
"From American Dream to God's Destiny." Bob's journey from computer-whiz and business
owner, to life of service with his family in an orphanage in Mexico, will inspire and encourage
readers to believe that God has a destiny for their own lives, and that stepping into that destiny
brings true fulfillment. Interwoven with the Huber's journey, is the moving and bittersweet story
of Juan--the Mexican boy who was destined to become their "son."
"From American Dream to God's Destiny" is a story of love, faith and surrender that will stir you
to uncover God's call for your own life. I know that Bob and his family will find a special place
in your heart--as they did in my own.
Deborah Porter Editor, FaithWriters' Magazine Coordinator and Editor, FaithWriters Writing
Bob Huber is a full time missionary along with his wife and children in Northern Mexico. Bob
holds bachelor and master degrees from Krannert School of Management at Purdue University
and had a successful career in business before God called him to the foreign mission field at age
Bob worked as the controller of a manufacturing company after college and later started a payroll
software company in his garage. The business grew rapidly and still continues to grow today.
Believing that it is God's will for their lives, the Hubers left their home and families and went to
a poor orphanage in Mexico where they helped care for more than 100 children. They later
served as the directors of a new orphanage they helped found, and continue to reach out to needy
children and youth in Mexico.

Product Description
Diplomarbeit, die am 30.10.2002 erfolgreich an einer Fachhochschule in Deutschland im Fachbereich Betriebswirtschaft eingereicht wurde. Einleitung: Der Internationale Währungsfonds wurde geschaffen um Wachstum und Wohlstand seiner Mitglieder zu sichern und zu mehren. Er sollte nach den Jahren der Weltwirtschaftskrise durch Bereitstellung von Hilfskrediten für Stabilität und Sicherheit sorgen. Doch für was steht der IWF heute? Der Fonds ist nun seit über zehn Jahren ins Fadenkreuz der öffentlichen Kritik geraten. Er hat sich für viele zum Feindbild gewandelt. Er steht heute für einen ungerechten und unmenschlichen Globalisierungsprozess, gegen den, wie zuletzt in Genua, Hunderttausende auf die Straßen gehen. Die Aktionen des IWF stehen wie noch nie im Fokus der Öffentlichkeit und werden von allen Seiten harsch kritisiert. Zu den Dauergegnern des Fonds vom linken politischen Spektrum haben sich seit einigen Jahren auch Kritiker aus dem konservativem Lager gesellt und es scheint, als würden seine Aktionen bereits vorher zum Scheitern verurteilt. Für die einen ist er der Verkünder des amerikanischen "Raubtier-Kapitalismus", für die anderen der "Geldautomat" wirtschaftlich schlecht geführter Länder mit korrupten und diktatorischen Regimen. Praktisch für jede Seite ist der IWF eine "böse" Institution. Regierungen sehen sich durch seine Kreditprogramme in ihrer Souveränität verletzt. Globalisierungsgegner kritisieren ihn für seine unsozialen Strukturanpassungs- und Sparprogramme. Marktfundamentalisten sehen in ihm den Brandstifter der letzten Wirtschaftskrisen, da er die Märkte am effizienten Funktionieren hindere. Politiker der G7 Staaten sehen ihre Gelder ohne Wirkung verschwendet. Man könnte sagen, der IWF ist der unbeliebteste "Feuerwehrmann" der Welt. So hat es der IWF im vergangenen Jahrzehnt geschafft, fast alle negativen Schlagzeilen aus der Weltwirtschaft mit seinem Namen zu verbinden. Dabei sind vor allem die ... Read more

This book is comprised of articles written by Mr. Huber which appeared in the Howland Quarterly, theMayflower Quarterly (published by the General Society of Mayflower Descendants), Piligrim News, ornewsletters of various state Mayflower societies.

Mr. Huber feels that some Mayflower descendants attach a little too much importance to their Pilgrim heritageand that a little humor or spoofing goes a long way in bringing them back to reality. With this book Mr. Huberhas injected humor into the lives of the Pilgrims as well as some of their descendants. This book is notcompletely humorous for Mr. Huber has added a good deal of factual information about many of theMayflower descendants. The articles were carefully researched before being published in the various journals.

If you like to read about the Mayflower passengers or their descendants, this book is for you. ... Read more

Product Description
Bioconductor is a widely used open source and open development software project for the analysis and comprehension of data arising from high-throughput experimentation in genomics and molecular biology. Bioconductor is rooted in the open source statistical computing environment R.This volume's coverage is broad and ranges across most of the key capabilities of the Bioconductor project, including importation and preprocessing of high-throughput data from microarray, proteomic, and flow cytometry platforms:Curation and delivery of biological metadata for use in statistical modeling and interpretationStatistical analysis of high-throughput data, including machine learning and visualizationModeling and visualization of graphs and networksThe developers of the software, who are in many cases leading academic researchers, jointly authored chapters. All methods are illustrated with publicly available data, and a major section of the book is devoted to exposition of fully worked case studies.This book is more than a static collection of descriptive text, figures, and code examples that were run by the authors to produce the text; it is a dynamic document. Code underlying all of the computations that are shown is made available on a companion website, and readers can reproduce every number, figure, and table on their own computers. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars extremely helpful, but suffers from multiple author problem
This book is great for helping you get started analyzing all types of microarrays in R.However, the chapters are written by several different authors which causes the book to be a little disorganized.This is probably the case with many books that have contributed chapters.In the end, the technical information is there, sometimes you just have to visit a couple of different chapters.

1-0 out of 5 stars it's not well organized
I find this book is not so good for people without any gene or microarray experiment background. It didn't even give clear definition of the basic concepts.
Another problem is that it's not well organized because every chapter is written by different authors who have different interest and preference and use slightly different terms for the same thing.

2-0 out of 5 stars technically accurate but pedagogically flawed
If you're like me, you came upon this book because you decided to use R for analysis of microarray data, but you're mired in its gory and frustrating details.

Yes, you need a reference book. But not this one, and certainly not this edition.Better documentation can be found elsewhere (dare I say online?).

The code examples given are technically accurate and run as advertised, but they are of the "monkey see, monkey do" variety.They provide little intuition for how to use R for oneself, outside the covers of this text.For example, Chapter 23 discusses linear models for microarray data (using the "limma" package), and several code examples contain the parameter 'adjust = "fdr"'.The reader is never enlightened that this refers to a "false discovery rate" adjustment.

In other cases, example code is simply missing.Chapter 21 covers the Rgraphviz graphing library, with a figure showing the three common graphical layouts -- but no example code for producing these graphs is given (I had to find it outside the book).

For those trying to use R for computational biology, I recommend getting an overview of the R programming language first (Venables and Ripley's book "Modern Applied Statistics with S" is a great text), and only then wading into references such as this one, if at all.

4-0 out of 5 stars Book contains many chapters to help get you started
I purchased this book to learn specific details and look at applications for the functions present in bioconductor.I have had trouble applying some of the chapters to custom data because they are written for specific microarray/data formats.Overall, this book is a good value because it contains examples of how bioconductor can be used to aid in hypothesis testing, but I struggle to apply what I have read to the different types of data I have.The section on Statistical analysis for genomic experiments and the section on gaphs and networks should be the reason you purchase this book. They are very helpful and interesting. The case studies were not very helpful in my opinion. ... Read more

Product Description

Bioconductor software has become a standard tool for the analysis and comprehension of data from high-throughput genomics experiments. Its application spans a broad field of technologies used in contemporary molecular biology. In this volume, the authors present a collection of cases to apply Bioconductor tools in the analysis of microarray gene expression data. Topics covered include

* import and preprocessing of data from various sources

* statistical modeling of differential gene expression

* biological metadata

* application of graphs and graph rendering

* machine learning for clustering and classification problems

* gene set enrichment analysis

Each chapter of this book describes an analysis of real data using hands-on example driven approaches. Short exercises help in the learning process and invite more advanced considerations of key topics. The book is a dynamic document. All the code shown can be executed on a local computer, and readers are able to reproduce every computation, figure, and table.

We are permanently debating ideas.This book is a great piece to cross pollinate more conventional management books.Very insightful examples and well thought discussion frameworks.Useful for those engaged in complex organizational set ups that require carefully staged discussions.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's a shame...
...that this book has a current sales rank of around 520,000 on Amazon. Effective communication is the key to all success in life, and that goes beyond just being 'comfortable' in front of a group. My book, The Confident Speaker, became a New York Times bestseller because people are hungry for advice on how to overcome crippling anxiety as they present their message to an expectant audience. This book by Alfred C. Snider is a wonderful companion to mine because it teaches you how to become a 'psychologist' of language and communication in general. The Confident Speaker

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Argumentation and Debate Text at a Great Price
I am currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Houston-Downtown teaching Communication Studies.I was recently assigned to teach argumentation and debate for the Fall of 2006.In the past I have used Freeley (now w/Steinberg) and Rieke and Sillars (now w/Peterson), but both of those books are in the $80 range.As most of our students work and tend to be the first in their respective families to go to college (we are a federally recognized Hispanic serving institution), expenses do matter.I noticed Dr. Snider's updating of Influencing through Argument seemed very affordable.

Frankly, it's quite a bit more approachable that some other argumentation texts, which should make it a much better read for my students.The section on research is particularly good for novice undergraduate researchers, and the section immediately following it on the use of evidence is simply outstanding.

Perhaps most importantly, this book is also an amazing value, even at it's list price of 24.95 (and can usually be had for less than that) which my students should very much appreciate.

Product Description
A uniquely intimate portrait of John F. Kennedy, Jr., from his closest friend

For twenty-five years, William Noonan and John F. Kennedy, Jr., were best friends. Sharing an adolescence in Hyannisport, Massachusetts, the two frequented beach bonfires and the Monday night yacht-club dances, took road trips, shared albums, sneaked cigarettes on the widow’s walk of John’s house, and scored beer together. And as they grew older, John and Billy never lost the connection they forged in the Kennedy compound as two young boys who had both tragically lost their fathers.

A humble and touching memoir, Forever Young uncovers the private John F. Kennedy, Jr., from the matchless vantage point of a longtime childhood friend. Forever Young is packed with never-revealed details of John and Carolyn Bessette’s courtship and wedding, the launch of George, John’s unusually close relationship with his mother Jackie, and the heartbreaking aftermath of the plane crash off Martha’s Vineyard that killed John, Carolyn, and Carolyn’s sister. Noonan also shares the more ribald episodes, including John’s many famous conquests, skirmishes with paparazzi, and his stint as People’s "Sexiest Man Alive." The definitive story of the son of Camelot, Forever Young is a touching and revelatory tribute to a friendship between two men—and a life cut devastatingly short. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting tale of male friendship and celebrity
This is a good book, filled with personal anecdotes about JFK, Jr. and his life.The narrative is intimate and frank which makes it feel authentic.An interesting take on an interesting guy, who left us way too soon.

1-0 out of 5 stars CAN I RATE THIS BOOK NO STARS???
After reading the book ( and then the Amazon reviews ) I feel justified in rating it "no stars".

Noonan has penned a self aggrandizing, utterly tiresome, story of his imagined friendship with John Jr.

His elitist tone is downright irritating. How nice for him that he can float around the Cape Cod islands on his pal's yachts. Like he contributed Something to the welfare of man.

From any standpoint this book is a "Dont Buy"

4-0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed this book.
I enjoyed this book tremendously. I could imagine JFK Jr. and Billy Noonan conversing just like it was described on these pages. Very realistic and true to life. I appreciated the fact the events were not glossed over, and glamorized. Worth reading. I've read it a couple times already.

5-0 out of 5 stars JFK Jr. Through His Friends Eyes
I loved this book!It was well written and had a lot of humor in it.I loved reading about his college years and the time he spent living in NY.It is very apparent that Jackie Kennedy Onassis did an AWESOME job raising her children...as John is grounded, ambitious, loyal, and dedicated enriching the lives of others...on top of being some serious guy candy (there were pictures in the book).I definately recommend it as it is a testament to this great man from one of his closest friends.

1-0 out of 5 stars It's more about Billy than John
Difficult to stay awake or believe this slow-paced / grueling 7 CD's set. It quickly becomes obvious that Billy is selling Billy as John's "best friend" (BFF!) - even though John did not ask Billy to be his best man. Hummmm.

I do not doubt Billy knew John, however, there are many more clues that caused one to believe his story is embellished.

Seriously, what a disappointment. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
This is a great reference book for everyone who is envolved is the music prodiction area (beginners and professionals). Lots of details but it isn't tiring to read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gives you a great overview!
I believe a lot of people are being unreasonably harsh in their reviews about this book. I do not know if this is because they could not understand what was written in it or maybe they thought they knew more than the author, I am not sure what the reason is, but this book contains a very good overview of the principles of audio. It explains somewhat thoroughly certain aspects of the audio production process and is a wonderful tool for audio technology students, such as myself.

Giving a low rate because of typos is irrelevant. If you want perfect grammar buy yourself a grammar book. If you wish the latest information about the latest gadgets do not refer to a book, books cannot update their informations, instead refer to the internet. If you want a good guide that will contain a lot of never changing information (such as frequency bands, basic audio principles and such), then this is your book. A lot of useful information has been compiled here and has been laid out with understanding and even some humor.

I like this book a lot and I believe it could be a very powerful tool to serious audio professionals and students. Of course, this is not the ONLY good book in this sphere, it is just a very good one.

I hope this review helps you in your search.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but it's the best option out there
So, after reading numerous semi-negative reviews, I had to write to say that when used as intended (as a textbook for an audio recording class) this book stands head and shoulders above the competition.As someone who has worked in pro audio for 17 years and taught it at the University level for about 12 years, I have examined every available textbook out there and keep coming back to this one.Yes, it's too in-depth for someone trying to learn on their own without the benefit of a teacher.Yes, it may be a little too oversimplified for someone who already knows the ins and outs of microphone theory, wave propagation, studio acoustics, etc.And yes, there are a few sections that don't really belong in this book.But for guided study of the science of audio recording, you will not find a more comprehensive text anywhere.

1-0 out of 5 stars How stupid is this!!
How can I review this book when I never received it. The seller took my order and when I followed up 2 weeks later to ask about the shipping date, admitted that they didn't have it in stock. A total waste of my time! Amazon should do a better job of monitoring these third party vendors. ... Read more
