Yancey , , Part personal memoir, part public health manifesto, and part poetry, Yancey's warmth and enthusiasm shine through this book. I'm betting that she can convince anyone that moving more is not only good for health, but easy and lots of fun to do. Yancey provides the tools to get America moving, in a very accessible style with the scientific research to back it up. Her call to incorporate short exercise breaks into routine, daily activities is one step that can create a true wellness society.
Toni Antronette Yancey has influenced and impacted community health and fitness in a number of profound ways! Her book is a must read for anyone interested in living a longer, healthier, and more fulfilling life. Recently, at the First AME Church of Los Angeles, we incorporated a quick but effective fitness interlude into all three of our Sunday worship services. The enthusiastic response from our congregation was tremendous! Yancey, for waking us up to the dangers of our sedentary lives and for awakening our desire to get into better physical shape. It can work equally well in the corporate boardroom, school classroom, or for fans at a sporting event for that matter.
It is a great place to start if we don't want to leave anyone behind. I'm all for breaking our national inertia with a musical beat and a smile on our faces. Yancey writes on a topic about which she is both passionate and knowledgeable. Doable in just about any setting, "Instant Recess" could get America moving again. Yancey poignantly shows why 'instant recesses' are needed by corporate Americans, educators, public health and medical professionals.
This isn't just a simple how-to book, but also a how-come. Most are smiling, some outright laughing as they rediscover the joy of moving. Thankfully, Toni captures the essence of that joy in her book, along with the practical guidance necessary to help anyone start making physical activity a part of their life and their community again.
Yancey's got the recipe for success to help turn around the epidemic of inactivity in our country. Finally we have a book that shows Americans how to build that strong base of fitness, 10 minutes of hip hopping at a time. Now, if you'll excuse me. It's time for me to take my "Instant Recess.

Thomas , , Rhys and Rhodri Trolleys, Sonia Greenwell , , Building the Unstructured Data Warehouse: Architecture, Analysis, and Design, William H. Inmon, Krish Krishnan , , Learn essential techniques from data warehouse legend Bill Inmon on how to build the reporting environment your business needs now!
Answers for many valuable business questions hide in text. How well can your existing reporting environment extract the necessary text from email, spreadsheets, and documents, and put it in a useful format for analytics and reporting? Transforming the traditional data warehouse into an efficient unstructured data warehouse requires additional skills from the analyst, architect, designer, and developer. This book will prepare you to successfully implement an unstructured data warehouse and, through clear explanations, examples, and case studies, you will learn new techniques and tips to successfully obtain and analyze text.
Master these ten objectives: Build an unstructured data warehouse using the step approach Integrate text and describe it in terms of homogeneity, relevance, medium, volume, and structure Overcome challenges including blather, the Tower of Babel, and lack of natural relationships Avoid the Data Junkyard and combat the Spider's Web Reuse techniques perfected in the traditional data warehouse and Data Warehouse 2. Chapter 1 defines unstructured data and explains why text is the main focus of this book. The sources for text, including documents, email, and spreadsheets, are described in terms of factors such as homogeneity, relevance, and structure.
Chapter 2 addresses the challenges one faces when managing unstructured data. These challenges include volume, blather, the Tower of Babel, spelling, and lack of natural relationships. This chapter emphasizes the importance of storing integrated unstructured data in a relational structure. We are cautioned on both the commonality and dangers associated with text based on paper. Chapter 3 begins with a timeline of applications, highlighting their evolution over the decades.
Eventually, powerful yet siloed applications created a spider's web environment. This chapter describes how data warehouses solved many problems, including the creation of corporate data, the ability to get out of the maintenance backlog conundrum, and greater data integrity and data accessibility. There were problems, however, with the data warehouse that were addressed in Data Warehouse 2. This chapter discusses the DW 2. The unstructured data warehouse is defined and benefits are given.
There are several features of the conventional data warehouse that can be leveraged for the unstructured data warehouse, including ETL processing, textual integration, and iterative development. Chapter 4 focuses on the heart of the unstructured data warehouse: This chapter has separate sections on extracting text, transforming text, and loading text.
The chapter emphasizes the issues around source data. There are a wide variety of sources, and each of the sources has its own set of considerations. Extracting pointers are provided, such as reading documents only once and recognizing common and different file types. Transforming text requires addressing many considerations discussed in this chapter, including phrase recognition, stop word filtering, and synonym replacement.
Loading text is the final step. There are important points to understand here, too, that are explained in this chapter, such as the importance of the thematic approach and knowing how to handle large volumes of data. Two ETL examples are provided, one on email and one on spreadsheets. Chapter 5 describes the 11 steps required to develop the unstructured data warehouse. The methodology explained in this chapter is a combination of both traditional system development lifecycle and spiral approaches. Chapter 6 describes how to inventory documents for maximum analysis value, as well as link the unstructured text to structured data for even greater value.
The Document Inventory is discussed, which is similar to a library card catalog used for organizing corporate documents. This chapter explores ways of linking unstructured text to structured data. The emphasis is on taking unstructured data and reducing it into a form of data that is structured. Related concepts to linking, such as probabilistic linkages and dynamic linkages, are discussed. Chapter 7 goes through each of the different types of indexes necessary to make text analysis efficient.
Indexes range from simple indexes, which are fast to create and are good if the analyst really knows what needs to be analyzed before the indexing process begins, to complex combined indexes, which can be made up of any and all of the other kinds of indexes. Chapter 8 explains taxonomies and how they can be used within the unstructured data warehouse. Both simple and complicated taxonomies are discussed. Techniques to help the reader leverage taxonomies, including using preferred taxonomies, external categorization, and cluster analysis are described. Real world problems are raised, including the possibilities of encountering hierarchies, multiple types, and recursion.
Chapter 9 explains ways of coping with large amounts of unstructured data. Techniques such as keeping the unstructured data at its source and using backward pointers are discussed. The chapter explains why iterative development is so important. Ways of reducing the amount of data are presented, including screening and removing extraneous data, as well as parallelizing the workload.
Chapter 10 focuses on challenges and some technology choices that are suitable for unstructured data processing. The traditional data warehouse processing technology is reviewed. In addition, the data warehouse appliance is discussed. Chapters 11, 12, and 13 put all of the previously discussed techniques and approaches in context through three case studies: Piper Creative Writing Center in Tempe, Arizona to raise community awareness about cancer and the need for research to find a cure. The collection of works includes a variety of essays, inspirational non-fiction, speeches, poetry, childrens stories, memoir entries, science fiction, and historical fiction.

Martin Rivas, Alberto Blest Gana , , Written shortly after a decade of civil conflict, it is an indispensable source for understanding politics and society in nineteenth-century Chile.
The hero of the story is Martin Rivas, an impoverished but ambitious youngster from the northern mining region of Chile, who is entrusted by his late father to the household of a wealthy and influential member of the Santiago elite. While living there, he falls in love with his guardian's daughter. The tale of their tortuous but ultimately successful love affair represents the author's desire for reconciliation between Chile's antagonistic regional and class interests.
Indeed, many critics have interpreted Martin Rivas as a blueprint for national unity that emphasizes consensus over conflict. In addition to providing commentary about the mores of Chilean society, Blest Gana documents the enormous gap that existed between the rich and poor classes. An invaluable text for its portrayal of contemporary social, political, and class conditions, Martin Rivas illustrates the enriching influence that romanticism had on nineteenth-century Chilean literature.

The Complete Correspondence , Peter C. Erb , , , Between and Henry Edward Manning and William Ewart Gladstone maintained a correspondence, broken only for a decade from and from Tracing as it does the shifting relationships between two such major figures over the greater part of the nineteenth century, the collection provides substantial insights into debates on Church-State realignments in the s and s, the entanglements of Anglican Old High Churchmen and Tractarians from the early years of the Oxford Movement to , and the relationships between Roman Catholics and the British Government over Italian, Irish, educational, and other political and religious issues in the latter half of the nineteenth century.

Perfetti, Laurence Rieben, Michel Fayol , , , This distinctive cross-linguistic examination of spelling examines the cognitive processes that underlie spelling and the process of learning how to spell. The chapters report and summarize recent research in English, German, Hebrew, and French. Framing the specific research on spelling are chapters that place spelling in braod theoretical perspectives provided by cognitive neuroscience, psycholinguistic, and writing system- linguistic frameworks.
Of special interest is the focus on two major interrelated issues: An important dimension of the book is the interweaving of these basic questions about the nature of spelling with practical questions about how children learn to spell in classrooms. It thus brings together schooling and learning issues with modern cognitive research in a unique way. In parts of the United States it can also bring an image of specialized wizardry and school room competition, the "spelling bee.
Beneath these popular images, spelling is a human literacy ability that reflects language and nonlanguage cognitive processes. This collection of papers presents a sample of contemporary research across different languages that addresses this ability. To understand spelling as an interesting scientific problem, there are several important perspectives. First, spelling is the use of conventionalized writing systems that encode languages. A second asks how children learn to spell. Finally, from a literacy point of view, another asks the extent to which spelling and reading are related.
In collecting some of the interesting research on spelling, the editors have adopted each of these perspectives. Many of the papers themselves reflect more than one perspective, and the reader will find important observations about orthographies, the relationship between spelling and reading, and issues of learning and teaching throughout the collection.
