📝The Missing Ink Book Synopsis : When Philip Hensher realized that he didn’t know what a close friend’s handwriting looked like, he felt that something essential was missing from their friendship. But does it really matter that typing and texting have largely taken the place of passionate love letters, secret diary entries and postcards home? From the crucial role of handwriting in a child’s development, to the novels of Dickens and Proust – and whether a person’s writing really reveals their true personality – The Missing Ink goes in search of the stories and characters that have shaped our handwriting, and how it in turn has shaped us.

📝The Case of the Missing Miner Book Synopsis : “I’ve gotten most of what I need to finance the trip,” Jim said eagerly. “I just need your share to help cover the cost of supplies and travel. “I put in 5,000 myself. If you give me 5,000 more it will be enough to get everything I need. See, I’ve got it all planned out.” Jim eagerly handed over a list of the supplies he would need for the trip and their costs. Mr. Broderick had to admit that it was a pretty thorough list. Kendall waited for his turn to see the list. He knew his dad would show it to him and Jamie. After all, he had asked them to join him in this meeting. Kendall felt proud of that. Their father believed enough in their sleuthing abilities to ask their help in something he wasn’t sure of. And you couldn’t ever be sure of anything where Jim Michaels was concerned. Jim was their father’s cousin. He was a great guy, but he liked to get involved in some strange adventures. This was no exception. Jim had dropped by and told them about a letter he had bought. The letter was written by an old prospector who was looking for gold in Alaska. He had found it, but hadn’t been able to bring the gold out. Find out if the letter is real or a fake. See if you can solve this 15-minute mystery before the Brodericks do. Similar to the old Encyclopedia Brown mysteries, these short mysteries give kids all the clues they need to solve the mystery, before revealing the answer on the last page, helping kids learn common sense and attention to detail.

đź“ťA Canon of Empty Fathers Book Synopsis : A Canon of Empty Fathers: Paternity in Portuguese Narrative is the first book-length study that analyzes the repeated and peculiar deployment of the father figure in Portuguese narratives from the nineteenth century to the present day. In it, Phillip Rothwell argues for a specifically Portuguese tendency toward what he terms empty paternity - a corruption of the Lacanian paternal function that has surfaced continuously in Portuguese culture from the fifteenth century onward.

📝Engineering Applications of Neural Networks Book Synopsis : A cursory glance at the table of contents of EANN 2009 reveals the am- ing range of neural network and related applications. A random but revealing sample includes: reducing urban concentration, entropy topography in epil- tic electroencephalography, phytoplanktonic species recognition, revealing the structure of childhood abdominal pain data, robot control, discriminating angry and happy facial expressions, ?ood forecasting, and assessing credit worthiness. The diverse nature of applications demonstrates the vitality of neural comp- ing and related soft computing approaches, and their relevance to many key contemporary technological challenges. It also illustrates the value of EANN in bringing together a broad spectrum of delegates from across the world to learn from each other’s related methods. Variations and extensions of many methods are well represented in the proceedings, ranging from support vector machines, fuzzy reasoning, and Bayesian methods to snap-drift and spiking neurons. This year EANN accepted approximately 40% of submitted papers for fu- length presentation at the conference. All members of the Program Committee were asked to participate in the reviewing process. The standard of submissions was high, according to the reviewers, who did an excellent job. The Program and Organizing Committees thank them. Approximately 20% of submitted - pers will be chosen, the best according to the reviews, to be extended and - viewedagainfor inclusionin a specialissueofthe journalNeural Computing and Applications. We hope that these proceedings will help to stimulate further research and development of new applications and modes of neural computing.

đź“ťPhotoshop Elements 5 The Missing Manual Book Synopsis : Anyone still think that Adobe Photoshop Elements is a toy version of the real thing? As the most popular photo-editing program on the market, Photoshop Elements not only has Photoshop's marvelous powers, but also has capabilities the mothership lacks. Each new version includes more tools designed specifically for today's consumer digital photo enthusiasts. The latest edition, Photoshop Elements 5, solidifies the reputation of this superb and inexpensive product with new scrapbook features, a link to online photo services, and many other improvements. In fact, there's so much to Photoshop Elements that it can be quite confusing at times. That's precisely why our Missing Manuals are the bestselling books on the topic. Adobe provides a pamphlet and some help files; our book, now in its fifth edition, carefully explains every feature the program has to offer (something no other book has done) by putting each one into a clear, easy-to-understand context. Photoshop Elements 5: The Missing Manual covers the Windows version of Adobe's workhorse and gives you the low down on a host of new features: Learn to create multiple page documents, custom photo layouts with frames, and highly customized layouts for scrapbook projects Master the new editor for Layer Styles, which lets you customize individual layers in a photo "Attach" your photos to areas of a Yahoo! Map so your friends and family can see the pictures you took in specific places Author Barbara Brundage also introduces you to a new sophisticated tool called "Curves" to adjust the color and contrast in your photos, and shows you how to burn multi-session CDs and DVDs. As always, she lets you know which features work well, which don't, and why -- all with a bit of wit and good humor. Although the book progresses from simple to complex tasks, you can easily jump around to learn specific techniques, such as creating photomontages (composites), restoring old photos, preparing images for the Web, and archiving. More than a dozen downloadable images let you practice using the editing tools right away!
