COBIT Security Baseline
This guide, based on COBIT 4.1, consists of a comprehensive set of resources that contains the information organizations need to adopt an IT governance and control framework. COBIT covers security in addition to all the other risks that can occur with the use of IT. COBIT Security Baseline focuses on the specific risk of IT security in a way that is simple to follow and implement for the home user or the user in small to medium enterprises, as well as executives and board members of larger organizations.
Personal Spiritual Revival
Many believers have backslidden. Some have turned away completely while others have turned away only in small degrees. Many will honestly say, "I have lost that love which I first had for the Lord." Many are prepared to say that, but they are not willing to take radical steps to put things right. They see the need to repent; they desire to repent, but they do not repent, for they do not pay the price of repentance. We believe, however, that there are some who truly hunger for the Lord and desperately want to come out of their backsliding and walk in close proximity with Him. It is for such people that this book has been written. We pray that the Lord should cause this book to fall into the hands of those who need it and that He should revive such ones and bring them into His glory.

Thomas the Tank Engine started life as a character in a bedtime story created by the Reverend Wilbert Awdry for his young son Christopher and remains a much-loved character today.
Compact Numerical Methods for Computers
This second edition of Compact Numerical Methods for Computers presents reliable yet compact algorithms for computational problems. As in the previous edition, the author considers specific mathematical problems of wide applicability, develops approaches to a solution and the consequent algorithm, and provides the program steps. He emphasizes useful applicable methods from various scientific research fields, ranging from mathematical physics to commodity production modeling. While the ubiquitous personal computer is the particular focus, the methods have been implemented on computers as small as a programmable pocket calculator and as large as a highly parallel supercomputer. New to the Second Edition Presents program steps as Turbo Pascal code Includes more algorithmic examples Contains an extended bibliography The accompanying software (available by coupon at no charge) includes not only the algorithm source codes, but also driver programs, example data, and several utility codes to help in the software engineering of end-user programs. The codes are designed for rapid implementation and reliable use in a wide variety of computing environments. Scientists, statisticians, engineers, and economists who prepare/modify programs for use in their work will find this resource invaluable. Moreover, since little previous training in numerical analysis is required, the book can also be used as a supplementary text for courses on numerical methods and mathematical software.
Design and Validation of Computer Protocols
This volume discusses the fundamental problems of designing logically consistent methods of communication between multiple computer processes. Standard protocol design problems, such as error control and flow control, are covered in detail, but also structured design methods and the construction of formal validation models. The book contains complete listings and explanations of new protocol validation and design tool called SPIN. Author is in charge of protocol design at Bell Labs. Professionals who bought Tanenbaum's COMPUTER NETWORKS, 2/E and Comer's TCP/IP will buy this. This is the first book to cover automated protocol design and validation tools extensively.
This second edition of Adaptive Filters: Theory and Applications has been updated throughout to reflect the latest developments in this field; notably an increased coverage given to the practical applications of the theory to illustrate the much broader range of adaptive filters applications developed in recent years. The book offers an easy to understand approach to the theory and application of adaptive filters by clearly illustrating how the theory explained in the early chapters of the book is modified for the various applications discussed in detail in later chapters. This integrated approach makes the book a valuable resource for graduate students; and the inclusion of more advanced applications including antenna arrays and wireless communications makes it a suitable technical reference for engineers, practitioners and researchers. Key features: • Offers a thorough treatment of the theory of adaptive signal processing; incorporating new material on transform domain, frequency domain, subband adaptive filters, acoustic echo cancellation and active noise control. • Provides an in-depth study of applications which now includes extensive coverage of OFDM, MIMO and smart antennas. • Contains exercises and computer simulation problems at the end of each chapter. • Includes a new companion website hosting MATLAB® simulation programs which complement the theoretical analyses, enabling the reader to gain an in-depth understanding of the behaviours and properties of the various adaptive algorithms.
Waters has teamed up with art critic Hainley to offer a provocative and personal interpretation of sex and sexuality today through the window of contemporary art. They discuss a range of recent works of art, from graphic depictions of the body to abstract images.

More than ten years ago, the first genetically modified foods took their place on the shelves of American supermarkets. But while American consumers remained blissfully unconcerned with the new products that suddenly filled their kitchens, Europeans were much more wary of these “Frankenfoods.” When famine struck Africa in 2002, several nations refused shipments of genetically modified foods, fueling a controversy that put the issue on the world's political agenda for good. In Food Fray, esteemed molecular biologist Dr. Lisa H. Weasel brings readers into the center of this debate, capturing the real-life experiences of the scientists, farmers, policymakers and grassroots activists on the front lines. Here she combines solid scientific knowledge and a gripping narrative to tell the real story behind the headlines and the hype. Seminal and cutting-edge, Food Fray enlightens and informs and will allow readers to make up their own minds about one of the most important issues facing us today.
