Book Summary:

Streamlined Design Solutions Specifically for NoC To solve critical network-on-chip (NoC) architecture and design problems related to structure, performance and modularity, engineers generally rely on guidance from the abundance of literature about better-understood system-level interconnection networks. However, on-chip networks present several distinct challenges that require novel and specialized solutions not found in the tried-and-true system-level techniques. A Balanced Analysis of NoC Architecture As the first detailed description of the commercial Spidergon STNoC architecture, Design of Cost-Efficient Interconnect Processing Units: Spidergon STNoC examines the highly regarded, cost-cutting technology that is set to replace well-known shared bus architectures, such as STBus, for demanding multiprocessor system-on-chip (SoC) applications. Employing a balanced, well-organized structure, simple teaching methods, numerous illustrations, and easy-to-understand examples, the authors explain: how the SoC and NoC technology works why developers designed it the way they did the system-level design methodology and tools used to configure the Spidergon STNoC architecture differences in cost structure between NoCs and system-level networks From professionals in computer sciences, electrical engineering, and other related fields, to semiconductor vendors and investors – all readers will appreciate the encyclopedic treatment of background NoC information ranging from CMPs to the basics of interconnection networks. The text introduces innovative system-level design methodology and tools for efficient design space exploration and topology selection. It also provides a wealth of key theoretical and practical MPSoC and NoC topics, such as technological deep sub-micron effects, homogeneous and heterogeneous processor architectures, multicore SoC, interconnect processing units, generic NoC components, and embeddings of common communication patterns.

Book Summary:

One of the greatest challenges faced by designers of digital systems is optimizing the communication and interconnection between system components. Interconnection networks offer an attractive and economical solution to this communication crisis and are fast becoming pervasive in digital systems. Current trends suggest that this communication bottleneck will be even more problematic when designing future generations of machines. Consequently, the anatomy of an interconnection network router and science of interconnection network design will only grow in importance in the coming years. This book offers a detailed and comprehensive presentation of the basic principles of interconnection network design, clearly illustrating them with numerous examples, chapter exercises, and case studies. It incorporates hardware-level descriptions of concepts, allowing a designer to see all the steps of the process from abstract design to concrete implementation. Case studies throughout the book draw on extensive author experience in designing interconnection networks over a period of more than twenty years, providing real world examples of what works, and what doesn't. Tightly couples concepts with implementation costs to facilitate a deeper understanding of the tradeoffs in the design of a practical network. A set of examples and exercises in every chapter help the reader to fully understand all the implications of every design decision.

Book Summary:

As a longtime US Navy and Marine Corps Chaplain, afloat and ashore, author Benny J. Hornsby is familiar with both the realities of the battlefield and the challenges of everyday living. A Navy Chaplain’s Devotions for Afloat and Ashore seeks to provide inspiration for military personnel as well as anyone who is lonely, depressed, or far from home. This volume is also a valuable source of real-world illustrations for ministers and other public speakers. Hornsby wrote these devotions over the course of a thirty-six-year career on active duty in the US Navy Chaplain Corps, including extended duty on six different Navy ships and several shore installations. These devotions were presented onboard ship; at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland; and in Navy and Marine Corps chapels, hospitals, and prisons around the world. While most were presented in formal religious settings, some appeared in newspapers, magazine articles, unit newsletters, computer bulletin boards, and impromptu Bible studies in difficult places, such as the battle zones of Vietnam, Panama, and Lebanon, as well as on the radio program “Brother Benny, Your Radio Pastor.”

Book Summary:

A child of the 1970s Permissive Society, Tuesday Penrose is truly a Human Barnacle. She attaches herself to a rock of security ensuring financial freedom, and waits for the high tide of human plankton. Ensnaring a new man every night, her appetite is voracious, depraved. She is immoral and amoral in equal measure and knows the meaning of neither word. Deploring the excesses of the Permissive Society, the traditional social fabric is under assault. For many, Tuesday exemplifies the rampant libertine excesses of the unfettered young generation. But set against this New Wave, life in the wider world continued. In the South Pacific, a luxury hotel in the Maldives is destroyed by a tsunami. Guests and staff are transferred to the partner hotel in Nauru. The most recent staff appointment is barmaid Tuesday Penrose, and here the Human Barnacle is confronted by the established values. When even exorcism by the priest Carolingus fails to rid Tuesday of her demons, it is up to a most unlikely reformed reprobate, Macedonian brigand Konstantin Kolper, to show Tuesday an alternative freedom. It is a Battle Royal and the demons within fight expulsion with all their force. Tuesday’s future and her fate hang in the balance.

Book Summary:

Time, Literature and Cartography after the Spatial Turn argues that the spatial turn in literary studies has the unexplored potential to reinvigorate the ways in which we understand time in literature. Drawing on new readings of time in a range of literary narratives, including Vladimir Nabokov’s Ada and James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake, Adam Barrows explores literature’s ability to cartographically represent the dense and tangled rhythmic processes that constitute lived spaces. Applying the insights of ecological resilience studies, as well as Henri Lefebvre’s late work on rhythm to literary representations of time, this book offers a sustained examination of literature’s “chronometric imaginary”: its capacity to map the temporal relationships between the human and the non-human, the local and the global.

Book Summary:

This book targets engineers and researchers familiar with basic computer architecture concepts who are interested in learning about on-chip networks. This work is designed to be a short synthesis of the most critical concepts in on-chip network design. It is a resource for both understanding on-chip network basics and for providing an overview of state of-the-art research in on-chip networks. We believe that an overview that teaches both fundamental concepts and highlights state-of-the-art designs will be of great value to both graduate students and industry engineers. While not an exhaustive text, we hope to illuminate fundamental concepts for the reader as well as identify trends and gaps in on-chip network research. With the rapid advances in this field, we felt it was timely to update and review the state of the art in this second edition. We introduce two new chapters at the end of the book. We have updated the latest research of the past years throughout the book and also expanded our coverage of fundamental concepts to include several research ideas that have now made their way into products and, in our opinion, should be textbook concepts that all on-chip network practitioners should know. For example, these fundamental concepts include message passing, multicast routing, and bubble flow control schemes.

Book Summary:

From 25 September through 17 November 2016, I was fortunate to serve as the Rabbi aboard the Holland America flagship, Amsterdam. The ship embarked from Seattle, Washington, and at the journey's end, arrived in San Diego, California. Each port of call, from Vancouver, British Columbia, to the Hawaiian Islands, then to the deep Pacific, were all spectacular. Fiji, the French Polynesian islands of Tahiti, Mo'orea, Rarotonga in the Cook Islands, and Nuku Hiva in the Marquesas, made the voyage a fantastic experience. I briefly review each location's 'history', and if applicable, Jewish history and presence, and then describe my visit. Each of these elements encapsulates another facet of this voyage. Of special meaning was my visit to the only Synagogue in the deep Pacific, Ahava v’Achvah, House of Love and Unity, in Papeete, Tahiti. Jewish passengers who accompanied me for the Friday evening Shabbat Service were enthralled by the beauty, warmth, consideration, and invitation of this small, but vibrant, Jewish community. The moments we spent with them were the high point for those who came for this time of worship and celebration. This voyage was a special time and I share these moments in this descriptive book.

Book Summary:

Charles and King have been convinced that their purpose in life now was more important than their past endeavors to bring peace and safety to the world. Those adventures have been vividly told in our previous three publications. Please see the Preface. It had been a year since the publishing of their third book—The Sharp Sword. The accurate research contained therein sharply concluded: that most ancient book in the world, The Bible—all though written by men, must have been inspired by God. Now in this publication, Confrontation, it was found that The Sharp Sword had been having a wide circulation. Organizations had been requesting more information and personal interviews: religious organizations inquired; philosophic groups; atheistic and agnostic believers; even a mythological society had responded. Therefore Confrontation with the world’s religious-philosophic communities became their determination. Their conclusions were of earthshaking importance. They were confident that the Bible clearly discloses God’s purpose in creating and also his activity throughout history and down to this eventful period in which we live. Can these conclusions be true—really? An academic delving into the Bible’s contents; a non emotional, non prejudiced study uncovers real reality which overrides the present superficial reality is that smothering daily life.

Book Summary:

How did his mischievous childhood foretell later events? How did the rebellious St. Louis teenager fare in the Navy during World War II? (He chose the Navy because they allegedly had clean sheets every night.) Stationed in the South Pacific, he was the youngest chief petty officer at 19 and written up in Navy annals. He drove fleet cars for a four-striper and ferried visiting entertainers to their performances on the island. Ernie describes exciting moments as a professional race car driver, winning many races driving open wheels, midgets, and stock cars in NASCAR’s predecessor races. In the 1960s, he booked big-name entertainers into St. Louis arenas and stadiums, eventually producing his own million-selling record. You’ll never guess what happened when he booked the Beatles into Busch Stadium. What did he think about his acting in films and television? And what will you find (literally) in the palms of his hands? Whether it’s racing cars, booking name entertainers, or charming his way through the Navy, Ernie’s unique perspective and vivid memories will lighten your day.

Book Summary:

"Have you ever seen a total solar eclipse?" If the question caused you to search your memory, the correct answer would have been "no." A common response is: "Yes--I saw one, it was about 90% partial eclipse where I lived." A 90% partial eclipse is indeed a remarkable phenomenon, but true totality leaves all else in the shade, in all senses of the phrase. Ask the question of anyone who has experienced the full sensation of being obliterated by the moon's shadow, and they will reply "yes"--without hesitation--and continue with a monologue describing the overwhelming experiences and unique phenomena that ensued. On 21 August 2017 millions of people across the United States witnessed "The Great American Eclipse" of the Sun. The moment it was over, people around the world were asking questions: what caused the weird shadows and colors in the build up to totality? Were those ephemeral bands of shadows gliding across the ground in the seconds before totality real or an optical illusion? Why this, what that, but above all: where and when can I see a total solar eclipse again? Eclipses: What Everyone Needs to Know helps explain the profound differences between a 99.99% partial eclipse and true totality, and inform readers how to experience this most beautiful natural phenomenon successfully. It covers eclipses of sun, moon, and other astronomical objects, and their applications in science, as well as their role in history, literature, and myth. It describes the phenomena to expect at a solar eclipse and the best ways to record them--by camera, video, or by simple handmade experiments. The book covers the timetable of upcoming eclipses, where the best locations will be to see them, and the opportunities for using them as vehicles for inspiration and education. As a veteran of seven total solar eclipses, physicist Frank Close is an expert both on the theory and practice of eclipses. Eclipses: What Everyone Needs to Know is a popular source of information on the physics of eclipses.

Book Summary:

A gripping tale of exploration aboard H.M.S. Challenger, an expedition that laid the foundations for modern oceanography From late 1872 to 1876, H.M.S. Challenger explored the world’s oceans. Conducting deep sea soundings, dredging the ocean floor, recording temperatures, observing weather, and collecting biological samples, the expedition laid the foundations for modern oceanography. Following the ship’s naturalists and their discoveries, earth scientist Doug Macdougall engagingly tells a story of Victorian-era adventure and ties these early explorations to the growth of modern scientific fields. In this lively story of discovery, hardship, and humor, Macdougall examines the work of the expedition’s scientists, especially the naturalist Henry Moseley, who rigorously categorized the flora and fauna of the islands the ship visited, and the legacy of John Murray, considered the father of modern oceanography. Macdougall explores not just the expedition itself but also the iconic place that H.M.S. Challenger has achieved in the annals of ocean exploration and science.

Book Summary:

A new history of globalization and empire at the crossroads of the Pacific. Located halfway between Hawai‘i and Australia, the islands of Samoa have long been a center of Oceanian cultural and economic exchange. Accustomed to exercising agency in trade and diplomacy, Samoans found themselves enmeshed in a new form of globalization after missionaries and traders arrived in the middle of the nineteenth century. As the great powers of Europe and America competed to bring Samoa into their orbits, Germany and the United States eventually agreed to divide the islands for their burgeoning colonial holdings. In Coconut Colonialism, Holger Droessler examines the Samoan response through the lives of its workers. Ordinary Samoans—some on large plantations, others on their own small holdings—picked and processed coconuts and cocoa, tapped rubber trees, and built roads and ports that brought cash crops to Europe and North America. At the same time, Samoans redefined their own way of being in the world—what Droessler terms “Oceanian globality”—to challenge German and American visions of a global economy that in fact served only the needs of Western capitalism. Through cooperative farming, Samoans contested the exploitative wage-labor system introduced by colonial powers. The islanders also participated in ethnographic shows around the world, turning them into diplomatic missions and making friends with fellow colonized peoples. Samoans thereby found ways to press their own agendas and regain a degree of independence. Based on research in multiple languages and countries, Coconut Colonialism offers new insights into the global history of labor and empire at the dawn of the twentieth century.

Book Summary:

‘A witty, sometimes heart-stopping, and always engrossing path from “boy pilot” to elite aviator.’ – Jaundiced Eye columnist, William Saunderson-Meyer Robert Schapiro always wanted to fly. Challenging anti-Semitic bullying, mockery and fierce rivalry, he realised his dream by earning his wings in the South African Air Force and going on to command C-47 Dakotas in the Border War. He joined South African Airways (SAA) in 1979, soon learning it was a time when SAA crews were dominated by the ‘Royal Family’ – captains who thought themselves above the rules and who spent time overseas on drinking binges or coaxing air hostesses to be their ‘airline wives’. When sanctions forced SAA to cut back on its routes, he was seconded to Japan’s Nippon Cargo Airlines, routinely flying between New York and Tokyo and grappling with often-hilarious cultural misunderstandings as he adapted to a Japanese style of operations. Schapiro is disarmingly frank about life as an international pilot. He divulges near misses, emergency landings, navigation errors, passenger shenanigans (seat sex, anyone?), how pilots control rowdy travellers and absorbing detail about the technique of flying different aircraft types. Uplifting and humorous, his memoir offers a rare slice of aviation history.
