I would not say things are going well, exactly. I live in a burnt-out car under a bridge, surrounded by rubbish. When Ruadan shows up to bring me back to the Institute, I leap at the chance. That is, until he throws me into the dungeons. I’m on the naughty list, and the mentor who once trained me is cold as ice. Now, I must pass every single trial or the Institute’s executioners will rip me to pieces. Good thing I can handle it. I was the queen of the gladiator ring, and I do not go down easily. This will be part of a four-audiobook series to be continued.Court of ShadowsCourt of DarknessCourt of NightCourt of DreamsThis audiobook is from the Demons of Fire and Night world. 1.

Author Philip Dray on this edition of Fresh Air. Philip Dray is the author of the book At the Hands of Persons Unknown: The Lynching of Black America. Dray chronicles the incidents of lynching: from 1882-85 the number of whites lynched exceeded the number of blacks. But after 1886 the number of blacks lynched exceeded that of whites. And not until 1952 did a year pass without a single recorded lynching. He looks at the perpetrators and the groups and individuals who courageously took a stand against it (the NAACP, Ida Wells, and W. E. B. Du Bois) and the legacy it left behind. Dray researched his book at the Tuskegee Institute, where records about lynchings have been kept from 1882. Dray is also the coauthor of We Are Not Afraid: The Story of Goodman, Schwerner, and Chaney and the Civil Rights Campaign for Mississippi. (Broadcast date: January 21, 2002) 1. Language: English.

Start using Kubernetes in complex big data and enterprise applications, including Docker containers. Starting with installing Kubernetes on a single node, the book introduces Kubernetes with a simple Hello example and discusses using environment variables in Kubernetes. Next, Kubernetes Microservices with Docker discusses using Kubernetes with all major groups of technologies such as relational databases, NoSQL databases, and in the Apache Hadoop ecosystem.The book concludes with using multi container pods and installing Kubernetes on a multi node cluster. "a concise but clear introduction to containers, Docker and Kubernetes, using simple real-world examples to pass on the core concepts, via repetition, and is a very useful enabler." 10/10Dave Hay MBCS CITP: review for BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT (http://www.bcs.org/content/conWebDoc/58512)What You Will LearnInstall Kubernetes on a single nodeSet environment variablesCreate multi-container pods using DockerUse volumesUse Kubernetes with the Apache Hadoop ecosystem, NoSQL databases, and RDBMSsInstall Kubernetes on a multi-node clusterWho This Book Is ForApplication developers including Apache Hadoop developers, database developers and NoSQL developers.
Communication and Power Engineering are the proceedings of the joint International conferences organized by IDES in the year 2016. The aim of these conference proceedings is to bringing together the researchers, scientists, engineers, and scholar students in all areas of Computer Science, Power Engineering, Electrical & Electronics and provides an international forum for the dissemination of original research results, new ideas and practical development experiences, focused on both theory and practices. The conference deals with the frontier topics in the Computer Science, Electrical and Electronics Engineering subjects.The Institute of Doctors Engineers and Scientists - IDES is formed to promote, and organize technical research Meetings, Conference, Discussions, Seminars, Workshops, Study tours, Industry visits, and to publish professional Journals, Magazines and Newsletters, and to carry on research and development on the above fields, and to research, design, and develop products or materials and projects.There are total 35 research papers included in this book covering all the frontier topics in Computer Science, Electrical and Electronics Engineering subjects. The authors of each chapter are researchers from various universities.
