On the evening of March 28, 1956, Steve Garvey's father, a Greyhound bus driver in the Tampa Bay area, asked his young son if he'd like to accompany him as he drove the Brooklyn Dodgers to a spring-training game with the New York Yankees. For Garvey, a baseball-card collector and an aspiring Little Leaguer, the opportunity stretched beyond his wildest imagination and marked the beginning of a legendary career and life in baseball.Garvey spent five years (1956-1961) as a bat boy, mostly for the Brooklyn Dodgers and briefly for the New York Yankees and the Detroit Tigers. The fact that he would go on to become a first baseman with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and one of the most successful players of his era, is like something out of a Hollywood script. My Bat Boy Days is his moving collection of indelible memories, fascinating profiles, and lessons learned - about the game and about life - from heroes such as Jackie Robinson, Sandy Koufax, and Mickey Mantle. My Bat Boy Days is for the generation of fans who remember the Boys of Summer and for the generation who grew up watching Steve Garvey play for the love of the game. Garvey's story is perfect for sharing with children and grandchildren who are just now getting to know and love the game. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alpha Trivette.

'An essential guide to one of the most pressing modern issues.' HANNAH FRY'Essential reading for those of us who click 'agree' ten times a day.' JONATHAN WOLFFThe first book to call for the end of the data economy. Carissa Veliz exposes how our personal data is giving too much to big tech and governments, why that matters, and what we can do about it.Have you ever been denied insurance, a loan, or a job? Have you had your credit card number stolen? Do you have to wait too long when you call customer service? Have you paid more for a product than one of your friends? Have you been harassed online? Have you noticed politics becoming more divisive in your country? You might have the data economy to thank for all that and more. The moment you check your phone in the morning you are giving away your data. Before you've even switched off your alarm, a whole host of organisations have been alerted to when you woke up, where you slept, and with whom. Our phones, our TVs, even our washing machines are spies in our own homes.Without your permission, or even your awareness, tech companies are harvesting your location, your likes, your habits, your relationships, your fears, your medical issues, and sharing it amongst themselves, as well as with governments and a multitude of data vultures. They're not just selling your data. They're selling the power to influence you and decide for you. Even when you've explicitly asked them not to. And it's not just you. It's all your contacts too, all your fellow citizens. Privacy is as collective as it is personal.Digital technology is stealing our personal data and with it our power to make free choices. To reclaim that power, and our democracy, we must take back control of our personal data. Surveillance is undermining equality. We are being treated differently on the basis of our data.What can we do? The stakes are high. We need to understand the power of data better. We need to start protecting our privacy. And we need regulation. We need to pressure our representatives. It is time to pull the plug on the surveillance economy. Insightful, terrifying, practical: Privacy is Power highlights the implications of our laid-back attitude to data and sets out how we can take back control.If you liked The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, you'll love Privacy is Power because it provides a philosophical perspective on the politics of privacy, and offers very practical solutions, both for policymakers and ordinary citizens.
MAchine Readable Catalogues (MARCs) are designed keeping in view functions like, printing bibliographies, card catalogues, data exchange, resource sharing using database management system (DBMS). These functions are directly or indirectly influenced by the choice of cataloguing code used. There are various cataloguing codes, MARC formats, and DBMS softwares like AACR2R, MARC21 and WINISIS respectively, used together for effective functioning of information systems. While trying to bring various MARCs under MARC21 umbrella for standardization / internationalisation, some problems were overlooked. MARC21 design, inherits rules of AACR2 card cataloguing & ISBD punctuations which often resulted in data redundancy. The very machine philosophy and principles of DBMS is rather undermined. This book is an attempt to identify such problems and resolve the same by offering an alternate approach. It deals with issues of compatibility of AACR2R, MARC21 and WINISIS. This book, it is hoped, will help in efficiently designing and developing bibliographic databases in WINISIS using AACR2R, following the bibliographic tag codes of MARC21.

Like the first edition of this book, the second edition also covers three main objectives ¿ to provide a comprehensive resource to individuals, including novice, IT/Non-HP-UX administrators, and HP-UX administrators who intend to take the new HP Certified Systems Administrator exam HP0-095 and pass it; to provide a quick and valuable on-the-job resource to HP-UX administrators, administrators of other UNIX operating systems, IT managers, programmers, and DBAs working in the HP-UX environment; and to provide an easy-to-understand guide to novice and IT/non-HP-UX administrators who intend to learn HP-UX from the beginning. This book contains 38 chapters and is structured to facilitate readers to grasp concepts, understand implementation procedures, understand basic troubleshooting, learn command syntax, configuration files, and daemons involved. The 38 chapters are divided into three key areas: UNIX Fundamentals, HP-UX System Administration, and HP-UX Network Administration. 1. UNIX Fundamentals (chapters 1 to 6 and 23) covers the basics of UNIX. Most information is not specific to a particular UNIX flavor, rather includes general UNIX concepts, file manipulation and security techniques, vi editor, shell and awk programming, basic commands, and other essential topics. Unlike many other similar books, a chapter on shell scripting is presented after covering HP-UX System Administration area. This is done purposely to supply readers with practical examples based on the knowledge they gain from UNIX Fundamentals and HP-UX System Administration chapters. 2. HP-UX System Administration (chapters 7 to 22) covers the HP-UX-specific system administration concepts and topics, including system partitioning and HP-UX installation; software and patch management; user and group administration; LVM and VxVM management; file system and swap administration; system shutdown and startup procedures; kernel configuration and reconfiguration techniques; backup and restore functions; printer and print request management, job automation and process control; and system logging and performance monitoring. 3. HP-UX Network Administration (chapters 24 to 38) covers HP-UX network administration concepts and topics, such as OSI and TCP/IP reference models; network hardware overview and LAN card administration; IP subnetting and routing techniques; basic network testing and troubleshooting; internet services and sendmail; time synchronization (NTP) and resource sharing (NFS, AutoFS, and CIFS) services; naming (DNS, NIS, and LDAP) and boot services; automated installation techniques and high-availability concepts; and system security and hardening. Each chapter begins with a list of major topics to be covered in the chapter and ends with a summary. Throughout the book, tables, figures, screen shots, and examples are given for explanation purposes. The output generated because of running commands and shell scripts is highlighted in light grey background to differentiate from surrounding text. The book includes several appendices, one of which contains 672 practice exam questions. Answers to practice exam questions and tables of commands, important files, and service daemons are included in appendix area as well.

This book begins with my day of sentencing. I had been practicing law in Henderson, North Carolina for ten years and on this day I am in court for armed bank robbery. I share what this day was like as well as prison life. While confined, I came to the realization that I was a compulsive gambler. I share my background of growing up in a small rural area in Eastern North Carolina and the details of how my gambling began and more specifically the card game of poker. Recounting and sharing many aspects of my life were painful but then there were other aspects that were a joy. Sharing my mental hospital experience and the sharing of the crime were difficult. But sharing where I am now and how blessed I have been were moments of joy. It is about this thirty-six year old lawyer who had been practicing law for ten years but because of unwise choices, flawed judgment, terrible foresight and bad habits, eventually ends up in prison. I end this book by attempting to show that in the face of adversities, one can still overcome and be successful, if he has the determination, perseverance and faith. The book in not intended to be a detailed autobiography but rather a life of gambling; especially, the card game of poker.
The time invested.... At the young age of 12, Kaydee Harrison wanted an adventure, to dream of far off places, and a pen pal seemed the perfect way to do that. She started writing to a girl in England only to have her address passed on to a boy named Duncan, and that moment changed her life. Ten years later, sharing thoughts and dreams through pen and paper has brought them closer than ever. When Duncan sends Kaydee a scarf for her 22nd birthday and a card expressing his love for her, she's happy but her hopes are shattered when he mentions his grade school friend Mara has come to visit him at Oxford. Is she really just a friend? Unexpected jealousy torments her thoughts. The chance taken.... With her father's health failing and pressure mounting to run the family business, she needs to escape. Kaydee finds herself on a plane to see if the fantasy of Duncan can be turned into a reality. Could this one chance at love change her life? Or will it be the one decision that tears their friendship apart? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Zimmerman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/081990/bk_acx0_081990_sample.mp3.

Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) technology is becoming a standard feature of computer systems that support mission-critical services like file sharing, mail exchange, or Web servers. RAID offers two benefits to these essential systems: improved I/O performance and fail-safe data storage. Although bandwidth problems on networks are well documented, the internal data transfer bottleneck that exists at the hardware level in each system can also leave you with perplexing performance issues. RAID is a cost-effective and easy-to-manage way to alleviate this bandwidth problem by distributing the I/O load seamlessly across multiple disks and controllers. RAID also provides uninterrupted data access through disk mirroring and parity algorithms. That means systems can remain online even during a disk or controller failure. RAID is scalable, making it robust enough for large, high-traffic sites and small, critical systems. By using RAID, system administrators can combine single disks into terabytes worth of data storage. Managing RAID on Linux covers everything system administrators need to know to put together a system that can support RAID. You will learn about the different types of RAID, along with associated technologies and issues, and how to choose the best RAID system for your needs. With a step-by-step, hands-on approach, the author guides you through the installation of either Linux software RAID or a hardware RAID card. The book shows how to build an array and optionally install a high-performance file system. Contents include: An introduction to RAID and Linux - Planning and architecture of your RAID system - Building a software RAID - Software RAID tools and references - Building a hardware RAID - Performance and tuning of your RAID system - RAID has become the low-cost solution of choice to deal with the ever-increasing demand for data storage space. Written for system administrators, power users, tech managers, and anyone who wants to learn about RAID technology, Managing RAID on Linux sidesteps the often-confusing vendor-specific approach you'll find elsewhere to give you the straight story on RAID. Even non-Linux users will find this book full of valuable material.
