Emily is running from fame. Once a worldwide singing sensation, she has spent the last five years hiding from her past in a tiny mountain town.

Enter North, the bearded man Emily almost runs over on a remote road. Starving and exhausted, he has no memories and nowhere to go. As North moves into Emily’s home, the gentle giant begins to give Emily back her sense of hope and direction.

With North’s past a mystery and Emily’s past a tragedy she’s desperately fighting to keep hidden, the odds are against them. When Emily discovers who North truly is, will she accept his love, or run again?

"I step into a blue funk,'' British author and filmmaker Jarman writes early on in this screenplay of of his final--and award-winning--film, which deals with his gradual loss of sight due to complications from AIDS. As a movie, Blue was powerful, disturbing and experimental, devoid of visual images while presenting the voices of Jarman and several actors speaking over a blue screen for more than an hour. As a text, it offers a briefer, more personal and poignant experience. Jarman's writing hovers between poetry and prose, images and metaphors tumbling over one another: "My mind bright as a button but my body falling apart--a naked light bulb in a dark and ruined room.'' The author, who wrote previously about his illness in Modern Nature and At Your Own Risk , careens through a variety of topics, randomly etching whatever is on his mind, from Marco Polo, Czar Ivan, van Gogh and Sarajevo to many things blue: jeans, sky, water and delphiniums. More than just the record of an artist losing his sight, this is a look at how a man accepts his impending death with fear, hope, humor and understanding. "Blue is darkness made visible,'' writes Jarman, who died in February 1994 at the age of 52.

As in the title phrase—borrowed from a 17th century poem by Robert Herrick—in which “several” is used to individuate, questions of singularity and the plural, of subjectivity and the collective, pervade this dream-quick poetry. In A Several World there are glimpses of an “us down here”—in a city state, in a valley town, in an open clearing, in the understory—and, by various projections, there is frequent attainment of an aerial vantage, a supervisory perspective. The wish to be out of the weeds, to imagine one can see the thing in whole, and, conversely, the wish to be overseen, even to be overlooked, further animate the poetic shuttling between late pastoral and conceptual project. Landscape here is spatial theater and, blowing through like new weather, a choreography recruits certain standalone selves: solidarity beginning in an erotics of attunement, catching likenesses. “Pick me up can also be as frequency and antennae do.”

A. E. Stallings has established herself as one of the best American poets of her generation. In addition to a lively dialogue with both the contemporary and ancient culture of her adopted homeland, Greece, this new collection features poems that, in her inimitable voice, address the joys and anxieties of marriage and motherhood. This collection builds on previous accomplishments with some longer poems and sequences of greater philosophical scope, such as “On Visiting a Borrowed Country House in Arcadia.” Stallings possesses the rare ability to craft precise poems that pulsate with deeply felt emotion. Like the olives of the title, the book embraces the bitter but savory fruits of the ancient tree, and the tears and sweetness we harvest in our temporary lives. These poems show Stallings in complete command of her talent, able to suggest the world in a word.

In 1984, the Board of Directors of Vancouver City Savings determined to take steps to secure their dominant position in the British Columbia and Canadian credit union movement. As Chief Executive Officer at the time, I felt it was propitious that Fraser Smith had targeted VanCity to champion his unique financial strategy for mortgage owners in Canada. The Smith Manoeuvre, as it was to become known, was simple and elegant. We attracted many new customers over the years by virtue of our support of the program. My question back then still stands today "Why isn't every Canadian making his mortgage tax deductible?" Perhaps the publishing of "The Smith Manoeuvre" will make it happen.

Aux prises avec un quota de peur au forfait illimité, l’héroïne de Trash anxieuse s’électrocute sans arrêt à ses pensées.

Sa mère voyage en Italie avec sa nouvelle concupiscente. Son père pleure sous la douche. L’empreinte carbone de la planète explose. Ses amies l’ont ditchée. Elle se heurte à l’écoanxiété, à la rénoviction, aux influenceurs, au virelangue des médias sociaux, aux contradictions morales de notre époque.

Heureusement, il y a Régis, son ami sans-abri, et la serveuse monoparentale du casse-croûte ; Orion à la voix de verveine et les lettres de sa tante Jeanne, nomade autour du monde ; l’écriture salvatrice et les actes de rébellion ; la joie qui s’éparpille et le futur à cultiver.

Oscillant entre l’acidité et la tendresse, la crudité et la sensibilité, la revendication et l’indulgence, mêlant dans une narration éclatée dialogues caustiques, scénarios de sitcom et poésie, la voix de Sarah Lalonde nous écorche et nous console tout à la fois.

Embedded systems are a ubiquitous component of our everyday lives. We interact with hundreds of tiny computers every day that are embedded into our houses, our cars, our toys, and our work. As our world has become complex, so have the capabilities of the microcontrollers embedded into our devices. The ARM® CortexTM M family, first introduced in 2003, is much powerful than the devices available previously. The purpose of this book is to present the design methodology to train young engineers to understand the basic building blocks that comprise devices like a cell phone, an MP3 player, a pacemaker, antilock brakes, and an engine controller.

This book, now in its 8th printing, is the second in a series of three books that teach the fundamentals of embedded systems as applied to the TM4C123/MSP432E family of microcontrollers. The three books are primarily written for undergraduate electrical and computer engineering students. They could also be used for professionals learning the ARM platform. The first book Embedded Systems: Introduction to ARM Cortex M Microcontrollers is an introduction to computers and interfacing focusing on assembly language and C programming. This second book focuses on interfacing and the design of embedded systems. The third book Embedded Systems: Real Time Operating Systems for ARM Cortex M Microcontrollers is an advanced book focusing on operating systems, high speed interfacing, control systems, and robotics.
An embedded system is a system that performs a specific task and has a computer embedded inside. A system is comprised of components and interfaces connected together for a common purpose. This book presents components, interfaces and methodologies for building systems. Specific topics include the architecture of microcontrollers, design methodology, verification, hardware/software synchronization, interfacing devices to the computer, timing diagrams, real time operating systems, data collection and processing, motor control, analog filters, digital filters, real time signal processing, wireless communication, and the internet of things.

This book employs many approaches to learning. It will not include an exhaustive recapitulation of the information in data sheets. First, it begins with basic fundamentals, which allows the reader to solve new problems with new technology. Second, the book presents many detailed design examples. These examples illustrate the process of design. There are multiple structural components that assist learning. Checkpoints, with answers in the back, are short easy to answer questions providing immediate feedback while reading. Simple homework, with answers to the odd questions on the web, provides detailed learning opportunities. The book includes an index and a glossary so that information can be searched. The most important learning experiences in a class like this are of course the laboratories. Each chapter has suggested lab assignments. More detailed lab descriptions are available on the web. Specifically, look at the lab assignments for EE445L and EE445M.
There is a web site accompanying this book Posted here are ARM KeilTM uVision® projects for each the example programs in the book. Code Composer StudioTM versions are also available for most examples. You will also find data sheets and Excel spreadsheets relevant to the material in this book.
These three books will cover embedded systems for ARM® CortexTM M microcontrollers with specific details on the TM4C123 and TM4C1294/MSP432E401Y. Most of the topics can be run on the low cost TM4C123. Ethernet examples can be run on the MSP432E401Y. In these books the term TM4C will refer to any of the Tiva line of TI ARM® CortexTM M based microcontrollers. Although the solutions are specific for the TM4C family, it will be possible to use these books for other ARM derivatives.

In this "hilarious burlesque of detective fiction" (New York Times), Tommy and Tuppence Beresford adopt the methods and manners of every major literary detective from Hercule Poirot to Sherlock Holmes to piece together an increasingly complex series of delightfully different-and deadly-misdeeds.

Coveting the petroleum of another country is against the rules of international law — yet if accomplished surreptitiously, under the cover of some laudable action, it's a bonanza. This is the basis of "the petroleum game," where countries jockey for control of the world's oil and natural gas. It's an ongoing game of rivalry among global and regional countries, each pursuing its own interests and using whatever tools, allies and organizations offer possible advantage.John Foster has spent his working life as an oil economist. He understands the underlying role played by oil and gas in international affairs. He identifies the hidden issues behind many of the conflicts in the world today. He explores military interventions (Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria), tensions around international waterways (Persian Gulf, South China Sea), and use of sanctions or political interference related to petroleum trade (Iran, Russia, Venezuela).
