Still mourning the loss of Lucas Nelson, the boy she loved in secret for years, seventeen-year-old Emmy Martin turns to her passion for mountain biking to try to fill the empty void in her life. But just when things start looking up, Emmy discovers her mom has been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s. Confused and angry, she throws herself into mountain biking like never before. She wants to improve on the trails, get a sponsor, and finally beat her nemesis, Whitney. When Cole Evans, a boy from school who usually doesn’t care about anything but himself, offers to train her for the biggest race of the season, she accepts, determined to beat Whitney. The more time she spends with Cole, the more she realizes he’s different than she’d expected, and, to her surprise, she’s falling for him. Torn between the deep feelings she still has for Lucas and her growing ones for Cole, she knows she must choose a path. As she drifts further away from her family and closer to her dream of being sponsored, a terrible accident threatens any semblance of peace and happiness she has left. Instead of closing herself off to the people she loves, Emmy must learn to rely on those she has pushed away if she’s going to have any chance of picking up where she left off before the accident.

The world is on the precipice of energy innovation. As we strive toward cleaner fuels, some technologies will rise and others will fall. Will the Tesla Roadster and the Nissan Leaf go the way of the 1890s’ Morrison Electric? The new rock stars of the transportation industry are radical entrepreneurs with visions that may change the landscape of energy as drastically as computers changed the landscape of communication. Electric vehicles (EVs) are steadily gaining acceptance. Countries like Norway, France, India, and China have stated that they will abandon sales and manufacturing of conventional vehicles by 2025–2030 in favor of EVs. Eberhart’s expert book provides everything we need to know to engage in the debate over EVs versus internal combustion vehicles. He skillfully sorts fact from fiction, puts valuable research at our finger tips, and offers us a glimpse of what the world might look like in 2050 with a potential worldwide population of 9.6 billion people and over 530 million EVs on our roads. The future has never seemed more like science fiction. We’ve seen hydrogen fuel-cell-powered trains (“hydrail”), autonomous drones, the first prototypes and working models of electric jets, and vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) vehicles. Uber promised to lift intercity EVs to the sky with its Elevate program, and smaller startups have demonstrated ingenious contraptions for human-powered flight. Eberhart envisions a successful energy revolution where we learn from our mistakes and solve our puzzles, as we work toward a future that allows us to be conscientious, powerful, and energy-savvy all at the same time. Are EVs really the holy grail of energy solutions—power without fossil fuel? Are EVs here to stay?

This book is a comprehensive introduction to analog computing. As most textbooks about this powerful computing paradigm date back to the 1960s and 1970s, it fills a void and forges a bridge from the early days of analog computing to future applications. The idea of analog computing is not new. In fact, this computing paradigm is nearly forgotten, although it offers a path to both high-speed and low-power computing, which are in even more demand now than they were back in the heyday of electronic analog computers.

This is the digital version of the printed book (Copyright © 2008). Adrenaline junkies, dead fish, project sluts, true believers, Lewis and Clark, template zombies . . . Most developers, testers, and managers on IT projects are pretty good at recognizing patterns of behavior and gut-level hunches, as in, “I sense that this project is headed for disaster.” But it has always been more difficult to transform these patterns and hunches into a usable form, something a team can debate, refine, and use. Until now. In Adrenaline Junkies and Template Zombies, the six principal consultants of The Atlantic Systems Guild present the patterns of behavior they most often observe at the dozens of IT firms they transform each year, around the world. The result is a quick-read guide to identifying nearly ninety typical scenarios, drawing on a combined one-hundred-and-fifty years of project management experience. Project by project, you’ll improve the accuracy of your hunches and your ability to act on them. The patterns are presented in an easy-reference format, with names designed to ease communication with your teammates. In just a few words, you can describe what’s happening on your project. Citing the patterns of behavior can help you quickly move those above and below you to the next step on your project. You’ll find classic patterns such as these: News Improvement Management by Mood Ring Piling On Rattle Yer Dags Natural Authority Food++ Fridge Door and more than eighty more! Not every pattern will be evident in your organization, and not every pattern is necessarily good or bad. However, you’ll find many patterns that will apply to your current and future assignments, even in the most ambiguous circumstances. When you assess your situation and follow your next hunch, you'll have the collective wisdom of six world-class consultants at your side.

The present book could be entitled and characterized in following way too: “The easiest, safest and combined Way to open chakras (to reach Nirvana or to awaken Kundalini), which author learned about existence of chakras only after he opened them”. An author of the present book elaborated logically and intuitively absolutely unique the only possible recommendations to reach spiritual realization (opening chakras) by the best in the author’s sincere opinion Way. The author opened 6 from 7 existing chakras as a result of two-year special pleasant very effective very much facilitated combined occupations. Please, compare: The most specialized discipline for the fastest opening chakras – Sahaja yoga needs the same two years but of unpleasant occupations to open at least one chakra. The author achieved fantastic results in intellectual games and he felt himself as the happiest person. As though the effect of eternal superconductivity of energy in his body was observed. All his organs worked like a clock. There were objective and very pleasant feelings of that all his organs were washed by energy from chakras and that he will live 1000 years (it will be especially important for you if you are not so young). It gives all grounds to believe that rare and optimum from the point of view of internal pleasure and health and from the point of view of external productivity (see below about increasing intellectual level) opening majority of chakras was observed at the author. The author even considers his level of development as further spiritual development after known at present levels of spiritual development. This level was reached by the author in two weeks after his Ajna chakra opened. It happened so fast because he did not stop following to entire without exceptions recommendations described in the present book after his Ajna chakra opened. All these circumstances represent mentioned in the title of the present book meaning indicators distinguishing the described in the given book Way to opening chakras from known ways. However, author’s chakras were opened during one month only since he made two mistakes led to two closings of chakras. The author opened chakras after the first mistake again but, unfortunately, he could not open chakras after the second mistake. Both mistakes and other cautions are described in the present book not to let you make mistakes. The present document has such impact characteristic as perfect, most probably, the best guide for professional players and certainly all other ones. The author’s experience and his former wife’s one say that mediocre player who opened chakras according to just this document begins to play such games as chess, (lawn) tennis and Preference (card game) on professional and very, very successful level. Most probably, the majority of players will reach the same success playing other games. This circumstance represents one of mentioned in the title of the present book meaning indicators distinguishing the described in the given book Way to open chakras from known ways. Thus, very substantial increase of author’s intellectual level, in that period when his 6 chakras were opened, was expressed in his great successes in games chess, (lawn) tennis and Preference (card game). Author’s former wife also opened her Ajna chakra and, just after it, she won a match with a professional (!!!) (lawn) tennis player (a woman). Their match passed in 1990 within the limits of competition, in which the Physical Culture Institute, which author’s former wife studied in, participated.
