John Tournour, known to his many listeners and fans as JT the Brick, is one of the biggest sports radio personalities in America. Making it as a sports radio host is almost impossible, and JT went about it in a fearless way, leaving a lucrative position as a Merrill Lynch stockbroker to pursue his dream. But Tournour's hardest challenge would come when his best friend and mentor, Andrew Ashwood was diagnosed with cancer. THE HANDOFF is about JT the Brick's rise to sports radio stardom, and how his entire view of life changed as his best friend fought a losing battle to a deadly disease. As Andrew heroically endured chemotherapy treatment after treatment, Tournour was at his side, marveling at his friend's bravery and trying to be there for him as best he could. THE HANDOFF is about facing your fears, the power of connection, and the incredible lessons Tournour learned from his dear friend.
Themes: Hi-Lo, Sports, urban teens, Track, Running. Finding the "right book" for struggling learners is essential to build both confidence and proficiency. Reading supports must be seamless, so that struggling readers are not stigmatized. The District 13 series does just that--written using carefully chosen vocabulary and simple sentences, the novels offer compelling teen stories about characters that interest young adult readers. Using sports as a backdrop, these edgy and mature titles confront issues that are of great importance to urban teens, especially teenaged boys: Coming of age, dating, fitting in, friendships, drugs, self-esteem, and school. Straightforward plots move readers through the 48-pages of text quickly and efficiently with satisfying resolutions. Synopsis: All Xavier heard was two laps. He just started running! He ran the first lap as fast as he could. He passed everyone! But by the second lap, he was winded. It was hard to breathe. He had no energy. Everyone passed him.
Wifi, WiMAX, and Cellular Multihop Networks presents an overview of WiFi-based and WiMAX-based multihop relay networks. As the first text to cover IEEE 802.16j multihop hop relay technology, this revolutionary resource explores the latest advances in multi-hop and ad-hoc networking. Not only does this reference provide the technological aspects, but also the applications for the emerging technology and architectural issues. Ranging from introductory material to advanced topics, this guidebook is essential for engineers, researchers, and students interested in learning more about WiFi and WiMAX multihop relay networks.
An ideal starting point for anyone wanting to learn about nextgeneration wireless networks Gives important insights into the design of wireless IPnetworks Illustrates the standards and network architectures defined byleading standards bodies (including MWIF, 3GPP and 3GPP2) Discusses protocols in four key areas: signaling, mobility,quality of service, and security The authors have a good deal of experience in this field, andhave many patents pending in the area of wireless networking

This mathematically rigorous overview of physical layer wireless communications is now in a 4th, fully revised and updated edition. The new edition features new content on 4G cellular systems, 5G cellular outlook, bandpass signals and systems, and polarization, among many other topics, in addition to a new chapters on channel assignment techniques. Along with coverage of fundamentals and basic principles sufficient for novice students, the volume includes finer details that satisfy the requirements of graduate students aiming to conduct in-depth research. The book begins with a survey of the field, introducing issues relevant to wireless communications. The book moves on to cover relevant discrete subjects, from radio propagation, to error probability performance, and cellular radio resource management. An appendix provides a tutorial on probability and random processes. The content stresses core principles that are applicable to a broad range of wireless standards. New examples are provided throughout the book to better explain the more complex material to the reader. Additional problems have also been added to those already appearing at the ends of the chapters to make the book more suitable for course instruction.

Through personal stories and expert examples by those who served, The Handoff is the answer to a long-neglected need of preparing the next generation for the burdens of protecting the freedoms of this great nation.
Here are the refereed proceedings of the EUC 2006 workshops, held in conjunction with the IFIP International Conference on Embedded and Ubiquitous Computing in Seoul, Korea, August 2006. The book presents 102 revised papers spanning six workshops: network-centric ubiquitous systems (NCUS 2006), security in ubiquitous computing systems (SecUbiq 2006), RFID and ubiquitous sensor networks (USN 2006), trustworthiness, reliability and services in ubiquitous and sensor networks (TRUST 2006), embedded software optimization (ESO 2006), and multimedia solution and assurance in ubiquitous information systems (MSA 2006).
Within a hard handoff procedure of a mobile terminal from a first radio sector to a second radio sector, a handoff manager requests the allocation of network resources associated with the second radio sector for the mobile terminal. If the second radio sector does not have sufficient network resources to support the mobile terminal, the handoff manager instructs the mobile terminal to switch into a dormant mode. By doing this, the handoff manager can delay the disconnection of the packet data session until there is sufficient network resources or until an internal packet data protocol error occurs due to a request timing out. In the case that sufficient resources become available, the handoff manager instructs the mobile terminal to return to a connected mode. One advantage of this procedure is the reduced need to re-establish a data packet session in cases that there is a temporary lack of sufficient network resources during a hard handoff. Contents are put together from publicly available documents from USPTO and Google Scholar.
This work presents a thorough review of the state-of-the-art techniques for maintaining QoS support for multimedia services over wireless networks. Several novel ideas and algorithms on integrated connection- and packet-level QoS, dynamic radio resource management, and multimedia QoS-aware services are described. Special emphasis is given to the following: -Mathematical models for analyzing connection-level and packet-level QoS, -Radio resource management schemes for TDMA and CDMA systems, -QoS-aware call admission control and seamless handoff schemes, -Dynamic call admission control for CBR and VBR traffic, -Markov decision process and linear programming techniques for optimal call admission control policy design. Radio Resource Management for Multimedia QoS Support in Wireless Networks will be of great interest to research scientists and graduate students working in the areas of wireless networks and QoS issues for multimedia traffic and related areas.
