Learning from Leonardo: Decoding the Notebooks of a Genius
eonardo da Vinci was a brilliant artist, scientist, engineer, mathematician, architect, inventor, writer, and even musician—the archetypal Renaissance man. But he was also, Fritjof Capra argues, a profoundly modern man. Not only did Leonardo invent the empirical scientific method over a century before Galileo and Francis Bacon, but Capra's decade-long study of Leonardo's fabled notebooks reveal him as a systems thinker centuries before the term was coined. He believed the key to truly understanding the world was in perceiving the connections between phenomena and the larger patterns formed by those relationships. This is precisely the kind of holistic approach the complex problems we face today demand. Capra describes seven defining characteristics of Leonardo da Vinci's genius and includes a list of over forty discoveries Leonardo made that weren't rediscovered until centuries later. Leonardo pioneered entire fields—fluid dynamics, theoretical botany, aerodynamics, embryology. Capra's overview of Leonardo's thought follows the organizational scheme Leonardo himself intended to use if he ever published his notebooks. So in a sense, this is Leonardo's science as he himself would have presented it. Leonardo da Vinci saw the world as a dynamic, integrated whole, so he always applied concepts from one area to illuminate problems in another. For example, his studies of the movement of water informed his ideas about how landscapes are shaped, how sap rises in plants, how air moves over a bird's wing, and how blood flows in the human body. His observations of nature enhanced his art, his drawings were integral to his scientific studies, and he brought art and science together in his extraordinarily beautiful and elegant mechanical and architectural designs. Obviously, we can't all be geniuses on the scale of Leonardo da Vinci. But by exploring the mind of the preeminent Renaissance genius, we can gain profound insights into how best to address the challenges of the 21st century.

European Identity (Contemporary European Politics)

FREEDownload : European Identity (Contemporary European Politics)

Jeffrey T. Checkel, Peter J. Katzenstein "European Identity (Contemporary European Politics)"
Cambridge University Press | English | 2009-02-23 | ISBN: 0521883016 | 280 pages | PDF | 1 MB

European Identity (Contemporary European Politics)
Why are hopes fading for a single European identity? Economic integration has advanced faster and further than predicted, yet the European sense of 'who we are' is fragmenting. Exploiting decades of permissive consensus, Europe's elites designed and completed the single market, the euro, the Schengen passport-free zone, and, most recently, crafted an extraordinarily successful policy of enlargement. At the same time, these attempts to de-politicize politics, to create Europe by stealth, have produced a political backlash. This ambitious survey of identity in Europe captures the experiences of the winners and losers, optimists and pessimists, movers and stayers in a Europe where spatial and cultural borders are becoming ever more permeable. A full understanding of Europe's ambivalence, refracted through its multiple identities, lies at the intersection of competing European political projects and social processes.

Beginning SQL Server for Developers, 4 edition

FREEDownload : Beginning SQL Server for Developers, 4 edition

Robin Dewson, "Beginning SQL Server for Developers, 4 edition"
English | ISBN: 1484202813 | 2015 | 684 pages | PDF | 26 MB

Beginning SQL Server for Developers, 4 edition
Beginning SQL Server for Developers is the perfect book for developers new to SQL Server and planning to create and deploy applications against Microsoft's market-leading database system for the Windows platform. Now in its fourth edition, the book is enhanced to cover the very latest developments in SQL Server, including the in-memory features that are introduced in SQL Server 2014.

Within the book, there are plenty of examples of tasks that developers routinely perform. You'll learn to create tables and indexes, and be introduced to best practices for securing your valuable data. You'll learn design tradeoffs and find out how to make sound decisions resulting in scalable databases and maintainable code.

SQL Server 2014 introduces in-memory tables and stored procedures. It's now possible to accelerate applications by creating tables (and their indexes) that reside entirely in memory, and never on disk. These new, in-memory structures differ from caching mechanisms of the past, and make possible the extraordinarily swift execution of certain types of queries such as are used in business intelligence applications. Beginning SQL Server for Developers helps you realize the promises of this new feature set while avoiding pitfalls that can occur when mixing in-memory tables and code with traditional, disk-based tables and code.

Beginning SQL Server for Developers takes you through the entire database development process, from installing the software to creating a database to writing the code to connect to that database and move data in and out. By the end of the book, you'll be able to design and create solid and reliable database solutions using SQL Server.

Takes you through the entire database application development lifecycle
Includes brand new coverage of the in-memory features
Introduces the freely-available Express Edition
What you'll learn
Install SQL Server
Build database applications from start to finish
Accelerate applications via the in-memory features
Write stored code to execute directly in the database server
Back up, recover, and otherwise maintain your database

Connect to your database from client languages such as C# and VB .NET
Who this book is for

Beginning SQL Server for Developers is ideal for developers starting out with SQL Server 2012 or 2014. There is no prerequisite background in developing database applications. Developers from other platforms and those brand new to database programming alike will find in Beginning SQL Server for Developers an excellent introduction to using and programming Microsoft's database platform.

Critical Entertainments: Music Old and New

FREEDownload : Critical Entertainments: Music Old and New

Critical Entertainments: Music Old and New by Charles Rosen
English | Dec 30, 2001 | ISBN: 0674006844 | 336 Pages | DJVU | 6 MB
An extraordinarily gifted musician and writer, Charles Rosen is a peerless commentator on the history and performance of music. Critical Entertainments brings together many of the essays that have established him as one of the most influential and eloquent voices in the field of music in our time.

Critical Entertainments: Music Old and New
These essays cover a broad range of musical forms, historical periods, and issues–from Bach through Brahms to Carter and Schoenberg, from contrapuntal keyboard music to opera, from performance practices to music history as a discipline. They revisit Rosen's favorite subjects and pursue some less familiar paths. They court controversy (with strong opinions about performance on historical instruments, the so-called New Musicology, and the alleged "death" of classical music) and offer enlightenment on subjects as diverse as music dictionaries and the aesthetics of stage fright. All are unified by Rosen's abiding concerns and incomparable style. In sum, Critical Entertainments is a treasury of the vast learning, wit, and insight that we have come to expect from this remarkable writer. It will delight all music lovers.
