The little prince

TO LEON WERTH I ask the indulgence of the children who may read this book for dedicating it to a grownup. I have a serious reason: he is the best friend I have in the world. I have another reason: this grown-up understands everything, even books about children. I have a third reason: he lives in France where he is hungry and cold. He needs cheering up. If all these reasons are not enough, I will dedicate the book to the child from whom this grown-up grew. All grownups were once children—although few of them remember it. And so I correct my dedication: TO LEON WERTH WHEN HE WAS A LITTLE BOY

101 TIPS AND TECHNIQUES FOR COOKING LIKE A CHEF

This is a book that I wrote about the popular foods used by our people in the Negev. I wrote my article and explained the ways of making these foods and how to prepare them, and arranged his chapters according to the types of food, which are made from dairy products under their own section, which are made from grains or plants that fall under another section and so on. With the rest. Some of these articles have already been published in Akhbar Al-Naqab newspaper, and I naturally reviewed them before and again, but I have also carefully reviewed them and added a sentence here and a word there, like everyone who is keen to do it and the quality of what it offers people. The reader has fallen on some indignities, and excuse that we are human beings and perfection for us and perfection for God alone. Our goal was not to make this book a cookbook about ingredients and how to prepare food, but we wanted to document these things that bind our present to our past, to remember how our people were convinced of a little, how they adapted to the circumstances and the nature of the environment in which they lived, and how they followed the path of contentment and lived on The subsistence, and how these circumstances led to the rooting of the habit of generosity in them and the villages of the guest, and all the qualities related to the generosity, in addition to mutual respect and lend a hand and help. In conclusion, here is the book of folk food in your hands with fat and meat and authentic heritage material

Princess Polly's Playmates

IF it was only true that castles COULD be enchanted, then I'd surely think Sherwood Hall was one," said the little girl with soft, dreamy eyes. "You'd think Sherwood Hall was what?" questioned the other little girl, who had paused to rest her foot upon a stone, while she tied the ribbons of her shoe. "An enchanted castle!" "Why Vivian Osborne! You're always thinking of fairy tales," was the quick reply, and she laughed as if the idea were impossible. "Now Leslie Grafton," Vivian replied, "you just come here, and look where Sherwood Hall shows between the trees.

The End of the Affair

Set in London during and just after World War II, Graham Greene's The End of the Affair is a pathos-laden examination of a three-way collision between love of self, love of another and love of God. The affair in question involves Maurice Bendrix, a solipsistic novelist, and a dutifully married woman, Sarah Miles. The lovers meet at a party thrown by Sarah's dreary civil-servant husband, and proceed to liberate each other from boredom and routine unhappiness. Reflecting on the ebullient beginnings of their romance, Bendrix recalls: "There was never any question in those days of who wanted whom--we were together in desire". Indeed, the affair goes on unchecked for several years until, during an afternoon tryst, Bendrix goes downstairs to look for intruders in his basement and a bomb falls on the building. Sarah rushes down to find him lying under a fallen door, and immediately makes a deal with God, whom she has never particularly cared for: "I love him and I'll do anything if you'll make him alive... I'll give him up forever, only let him be alive with a chance... People can love each other without seeing each other, can't they, they love You all their lives without seeing You". Bendrix, as evidenced by his ability to tell the story, is not dead, merely unconscious, and so Sarah must keep her promise. She breaks off the relationship without giving a reason, leaving Bendrix mystified and angry. The only explanation he can think of is that she's left him for another man. It isn't until years later, when he hires a private detective to ascertain the truth, that he learns of her impassioned vow. Sarah herself comes to understand her move through a strange rationalisation. Writing to God in her journal, she says: "You willed our separation, but he [Bendrix] willed it too. He worked for it with his anger and his jealousy, and he worked for it with his love. For he gave me so much love, and I gave him so much love that soon there wasn't anything left, when we'd finished, but You". It's as though the pull toward faith were inevitable, if incomprehensible--perhaps as punishment for her sin of adultery. In her final years, Sarah's faith only deepens, even as she remains haunted by the bombing and the power of her own attraction to God. Set against the backdrop of a war-ravaged city, The End of the Affair is equally haunting as it lays forth the question of what constitutes love in troubling, unequivocal terms. --Melanie Rehak

Titanic

James Cameron was the big winner at Oscar night in Los Angeles in March 1998. His 1997 movie was named Best Picture, winning ten other Oscars, too. As Cameron held up the Oscar, he repeated a famous line from the movie: "I'm the king of the world!" He later joked that "size does matter." It was a dream that Cameron had for a long time. He loved history and he was always interested in the story of the Titanic. Cameron's early movies - for example, The Terminator and Aliens - were full of action. Titanic had plenty of action, too, but the heart of the movie was a love story. Cameron chose two young actors for this. Leonardo DiCaprio played Jack Dawson. Born in 1974, DiCaprio was first seen on TV at the age of five. He became famous in the 1990s with movies like What's Eating Gilbert Grape? and This Boy's Life. Work on Cameron's Titanic was long and difficult for DiCaprio. Kate Winslet played Jack's lover, Rose. The British actress was also born in 1974. Winslet was not interested in small parts in Hollywood movies. She wanted to act in the theater. But soon Kate was in the biggest movie that was ever made. While Cameron was making the movie, not everybody was so sure about its success. It took a long time to make the movie. As it continued, the cost went up and up. It finally cost between $185,000,000 and $200,000,000. The movie's opening was changed from summer of 1997 to December. Many newspapers and magazines wrote stories about the movie like "Titanic Sinks." Titanic was more expensive than any other movie:

My Little Ghost

Very young children like to feel safe. They like the same things to happen every day; they like the same people around them. They like what they know, and are often afraid of what they don't know. Avusi is worried. Why does his mama work in a house full of ghosts - white ghosts? I live in a small village on the coast in Papua New Guinea. My name is Avusi. My Mama, she works in town, looking after somebody's children. Every morning I wake up to the sound of my Mama getting ready for work, and I am filled with a feeling of sadness. 'Mama, can I come with you?' 'No, my brave little man, you cannot come.' 'But I don't want to stay here by myself,' I cry. 'Your Bubu will be here to look after you, and you have all the other children in the village to play with.' I watch unhappily as my mother goes down the wooden steps of our hut and disappears into the morning fog. That night, while my mother was putting me to bed, I asked her about her job. 'Mama, is it true there are lots of ghosts where you work?' 'Why? Who told you a story like that?' she asked. 'Bubu Man said you work in a house full of white ghosts.' 'Don't listen to that old man. One day he'll frighten you to death. I don't work in a house of white ghosts, is that clear?' 'Yes, Mama.' 'So, I guess that means you're not coming with me to work tomorrow... because you think I work in a house full of ghosts.' 'No, I want to come, I want to come, please!' I said. 'OK, OK, you can come,' she laughed. Next day I got up at the same time as the sun. 'Mama, Mama, wake up!' I called, running into my mother's room. 'You're going to be late for work.'

The Chain

You just dropped off your child at the bus stop. A panicked stranger calls your phone. Your child has been kidnapped, and the stranger explains that their child has also been kidnapped, by a completely different stranger. The only way to get your child back is to kidnap another child within 24 hours. Your child will be released only when the next victim's parents kidnap yet another child, and most importantly, the stranger explains, if you don't kidnap a child, or if the next parents don't kidnap a child, your child will be murdered. You are now part of The Chain. She’s sitting at the bus stop checking the likes on her Instagram feed and doesn’t even notice the man with the gun until he’s almost next to her. She could have dropped her school bag and run across the marshes. She’s a nimble thirteen-year-old and she knows all the swamps and quicksands of Plum Island. There’s a little morning sea fog and the man is big and clumsy. He’d be nervous about pursuit and he’d certainly have to give up the chase before the school bus came at eight o’clock.

Prisoner for peace

Every day was a lonely, dangerous fight for freedom. Suu could not move freely even in her own home. Aung San Suu Kyi was born in 1945 to a rich and important family in Burma (now Myanmar). Her father was killed when she was only two years old. But her young life was happy and comfortable. When she was fifteen, the family moved to India. Suu became very interested in her mother s political work there. She understood the power of politics from an early age. While studying in Oxford, Suu met Michael Aris, a handsome, young Englishman. Michael soon fell in love with Suu's Asian good looks and her bright intelligence. They married, and then traveled and worked in Asia for a few years together. Finally, they returned to England to live a simple, happy life with their two sons. But Suu could not forget her history, her family, and her people in Burma. She understood now that her father was killed during his fight for Burma's freedom. During the 1970s and 1980s, too, there were many problems in Burmese politics. As she read the newspapers, Suu remembered her father's courage. In 1988 Suu visited her sick mother in Burma. It was a very difficult time for the country because the army wanted to form a new government. Many people were afraid of the future. Thousands of people, young and old, came into the streets to make their opinions known. But the army wanted power-they did not want to listen. They were ready to fight. Later that year, the army killed thousands of ordinary people. Suu knew that she had to choose between her comfortable, happy life with her family in Oxford and a difficult and dangerous life in Burma. Her mother was dying. Suu decided that she must continue her father's good work. Suu understood a lot about international history and politics. She wanted to use the ideas of people like Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi.

Fighting for The Forest

Chico was well aware that the forest should be investigated carefully. So cautiously as the people of the forest did many years ago. The Amazon Forest is one of the most wonderful places on the planet. It is big, old and there are many animals and plants including rare species. Here is the larger part of the fresh water reserves on the planet. Chico was born in Brazil. There were no schools in the tropics, and he began to work hard at the age of ten. He did the same thing as the others. Everybody collected useful materials in the forest and sold them in the city. As a child, the boy did not think about the world outside the forest. But when he grew up, he realized, that the Earth is much larger than his beautiful tropical forest.

Secret Codes

The most common codes and ciphers are in your wallet and they are used every day. Do you use secret codes? Do you look for and understand strange symbols? Do you send and receive messages that only a few other people can understand? You are probably not a spy, but you certainly use a great number of secret codes, ciphers, symbols and messages. Everyone does! For example, which of these symbols makes you think of the word stop? Most of these symbols for stop are familiar around the world, but some symbols have different meanings for different people. The colour red might mean stop or danger to some people, but in China it often means let's celebrate. Symbols for ideas like stop are not meant to be secret. Many codes are just shorter or faster ways of explaining other ideas. A stop sign really says, 'Please wait here for a moment and look around. Are you sure there are no other cars or people that might cause you to have an accident?' It would take too long to read all this at every corner. Even language is a code. Although you can read the words in this book, you probably could not understand a common word like stop in more than a few languages. Other languages might look like secret codes to you. On the other hand, you may use or invent a new language that older people do not understand. Do you understand the word codes in text messaging? For example, do you understand this message? GR8 2 C U * This is not meant to be secret code, but many people do not understand it.

One of the missing

Searing was a brave man. He worked alone and he did his work well. He had sharp eyes and ears. He could see far into the distance. And he often heard sounds that other people could not hear. Now he moved silently through the forest toward the enemy regiment. In his hands, he carried a powerful rifle. Searing could shoot extremely well. When Searing reached the edge of the forest, he stopped. He got down on his hands and knees and crawled forward slowly. He was looking for the enemy's picket line. Pickets guarded the men of their regiment. They dug holes-rifle-pitsin the ground around the edge of their camp. The pickets sat in the rifle-pits and aimed their guns at the enemy. Usually, there were three or four men together in each rifle-pit. The pickets took turns to sleep. While one man watched, the other men slept. Scaring was looking for small mounds of earth on the ground. The mounds would show Searing where the Confederates had dug their riflepits. The mounds would also show him where the enemy had positioned its picket line.

Modular Programming with JavaScript

Programming in the modular manner is always encouraged for bigger systems―it is easier to achieve scalability with modular programming. Even JavaScript developers are now interested in building programs in a modular pattern. Modules help people who aren’t yet familiar with code to find what they are looking for and also makes it easier for programmers to keep things that are related close together. Designing and implementing applications in a modular manner is highly encouraged and desirable in both simple and enterprise level applications. This book covers some real-life examples of modules and how we can translate that into our world of programming and application design. After getting an overview of JavaScript object-oriented programming (OOP) concepts and their practical usage, you should be able to write your own object definitions using the module pattern. You will then learn to design and augment modules and will explore the concepts of cloning, inheritance, sub-modules, and code extensibility. You will also learn about SandBoxing, application design, and architecture based on modular design concepts. Become familiar with AMD and CommonJS utilities. By the end of the book, you will be able to build spectacular modular applications in JavaScript. What You Will Learn Understand the important concepts of OOP in JavaScript, such as scope, objects, inheritance, event delegation, and more Find out how the module design pattern is used in OOP in JavaScript Design and augment modules using both tight augmentation and loose augmentation Extend the capabilities of modules by creating sub-modules using techniques such as cloning and inheritance Move from isolated module pieces to a cohesive, well integrated application modules that can interact and work together without being tightly coupled See how SandBoxing is used to create a medium for all the modules to talk to each other as well as to the core Use the concepts of modular application design to handle dependencies and load modules asynchronously Become familiar with AMD and CommonJS utilities and discover what the future of JavaScript holds for modular programming and architecture

The Discovery of Two FU Orionis Objects in L1641

We have obtained spectra of the reflection nebulosity illuminated by two heavily embedded IRAS sources in the L1641 molecular cloud, Re 50 and IC 430 (V883 Ori). Examination of these spectra in combination with their other properties indicates that these objects are FU Orionis objects. Our spectrum of L1551 IRS 5 confirms the FU Ori classification made for this star by Mundt et al. (1985).

SINUSOIDAL GRAVITATIONAL WAVES FROM THE NUCLEI OF ACTIVE GALAXIES

It is believed that most quasars and galaxies present two common features: the presence in their core of a supermassive object, and the experience of one or more encounters with other galaxies. In this scenario, it is likely that a substantial fraction of active galactic nuclei harbour a supermassive binary, fueled by an accretion disk. These binaries would certainly be among the strongest sources of sinusoidal gravitational waves. We investigate their evolution considering, simultaneously, the accretion of the black hole’s masses from the disk, and the gravitational waves emitted during the orbital motion. We also consider other astrophysical scenarios involving a coalescing binary with non constant masses.

The Giver of Stars

Alice Wright marries handsome American Bennett Van Cleve hoping to escape her stifling life in England. But small-town Kentucky quickly proves equally claustrophobic, especially living alongside her overbearing father-in-law. So, when a call goes out for a team of women to deliver books as part of Eleanor Roosevelt's new traveling library, Alice signs on enthusiastically. The leader, and soon Alice's greatest ally, is Margery, a smart-talking, self-sufficient woman who's never asked a man's permission for anything. They will be joined by three other singular women who become known as the Packhorse Librarians of Kentucky. What happens to them - and to the men they love - becomes an unforgettable drama of loyalty, justice, humanity, and passion. These heroic women refuse to be cowed by men or by convention. And though they face all kinds of dangers in a landscape that is at times breathtakingly beautiful, at others brutal, they're committed to their job: bringing books to people who have never had any, arming them with facts that will change their lives. Based on a true story rooted in America's past, The Giver of Stars is unparalleled in its scope and epic in its storytelling. Funny, heartbreaking, enthralling, it is destined to become a modern classic - a richly rewarding novel of women's friendship, of true love, and of what happens when we reach beyond our grasp for the great beyond.
