From Ethan Hawke, four-time Academy Award nominee—twice for writing and twice for acting—an unforgettable fable about a father's journey and a timeless guide to life's many questions. A knight, fearing he may not return from battle, writes a letter to his children in an attempt to leave a record of all he knows. In a series of ruminations on solitude, humility, forgiveness, honesty, courage, grace, pride, and patience, he draws on the ancient teachings of Eastern and Western philosophy, and on the great spiritual and political writings of our time. His intent: to give his children a compass for a journey they will have to make alone, a short guide to what gives life meaning and beauty.

A Knight in Rusty Armor

There was one with rules for a knight school, a map of another kingdom, a treaty, and a marriage certificate, which at the time I thought was pretty useless. Nevertheless, the scrolls would look good in my own library.

An Invitation to Cognitive Science provides a point of entry intothe vast realm of cognitive science, offering selected examples of issues and theories from many ofits subfields. All of the volumes in the second edition contain substantially revised and as well asentirely new chapters. Rather than surveying theories and data in the mannercharacteristic of many introductory textbooks in the field, An Invitation to CognitiveScience employs a unique case study approach, presenting a focused research topic in somedepth and relying on suggested readings to convey the breadth of views and results. Each chaptertells a coherent scientific story, whether developing themes and ideas or describing a particularmodel and exploring its implications. The volumes are self contained and can beused individually in upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses ranging from introductorypsychology, linguistics, cognitive science, and decision sciences, to social psychology, philosophyof mind, rationality, language, and vision science.

Master GUI programming in Tkinter as you design, implement, and deliver ten real-world applications from start to finish About This Book Conceptualize and build state-of-art GUI applications with Tkinter Tackle the complexity of just about any size GUI application with a structured and scalable approach A project-based, practical guide to get hands-on into Tkinter GUI development Who This Book Is For Software developers, scientists, researchers, engineers, students, or programming hobbyists with basic familiarity in Python will find this book interesting and informative. People familiar with basic programming constructs in other programming language can also catch up with some brief reading on Python. No GUI programming experience is expected. What You Will Learn Get to know the basic concepts of GUI programming, such as Tkinter top-level widgets, geometry management, event handling, using callbacks, custom styling, and dialogs Create apps that can be scaled in size or complexity without breaking down the core Write your own GUI framework for maximum code reuse Build apps using both procedural and OOP styles, understanding the strengths and limitations of both styles Learn to structure and build large GUI applications based on Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture Build multithreaded and database-driven apps Create apps that leverage resources from the network Learn basics of 2D and 3D animation in GUI applications Develop apps that can persist application data with object serialization and tools such as configparser In Detail Tkinter is the built-in GUI package that comes with standard Python distributions. It is a cross-platform package, which means you build once and deploy everywhere. It is simple to use and intuitive in nature, making it suitable for programmers and non-programmers alike. This book will help you master the art of GUI programming. It delivers the bigger picture of GUI programming by building real-world, productive, and fun applications such as a text editor, drum machine, game of chess, media player, drawing application, chat application, screen saver, port scanner, and many more. In every project, you will build on the skills acquired in the previous project and gain more expertise. You will learn to write multithreaded programs, network programs, database driven programs and more. You will also get to know the modern best practices involved in writing GUI apps. With its rich source of sample code, you can build upon the knowledge gained with this book and use it in your own projects in the discipline of your choice. Style and approach An easy-to-follow guide, full of hands-on examples of real-world GUI programs. The first chapter is a must read as it explains most of the things you need to get started with writing GUI programs with Tkinter. Each subsequent chapter is a stand-alone project that discusses some aspects of GUI programming in detail. These chapters can be read sequentially or randomly depending upon the readers experience with Python.

The Book of the Knight Zifar (or Cifar), Spain's first novel of chivalry, is the tale of a virtuous but unfortunate knight who has fallen from grace and must seek redemption through suffering and good deeds. Because of a curse that repeatedly deprives him of that most important of knightly accoutrements -- his horse -- Zifar and his family must flee their native India and wander through distant lands seeking to regain their rank and fortune. A series of mishaps divides the family, and the novel follows their separate adventures -- alternatively heroic, comic, and miraculous -- until at length they are reunited and their honor restored. The anonymous author of Zifar based his early fourteenth-century novel on the medieval story of the life of St. Eustacius, but onto this trunk he grafted a surprising variety of narrative types: Oriental tales of romance and magic, biblical stories, moralizing fables popular since the Middle Ages, including several from Aesop, and instructions in the rules of proper knightly conduct. Humor in the form of puns, jokes, and old proverbs also runs through the novel. In particular, the foolish/wise Knave offers a comic contrast to the heroic Knight, whom he must continually rescue through the application of common sense. Zifar was to have an important influence on later Spanish literature, and perhaps on Cervantes' great tale of a knight and his squire, Don Quixote. All those with an interest in Spanish literature and medieval life will be grateful for Mr. Nelson's excellent translation, which brings to life this extraordinary early novel.

Readings in Machine Learning

Readings in Machine Learning

In DT , pieces and knight pieces have separate move rules , making it easy to enforce the sliding piece constraint . In DI flann , it is not so clear how this constraint can be represented , since a single rule is used for all pieces .

The ability to learn is a fundamental characteristic of intelligent behavior. Consequently, machine learning has been a focus of artificial intelligence since the beginnings of AI in the 1950s. The 1980s saw tremendous growth in the field, and this growth promises to continue with valuable contributions to science, engineering, and business. Readings in Machine Learning collects the best of the published machine learning literature, including papers that address a wide range of learning tasks, and that introduce a variety of techniques for giving machines the ability to learn. The editors, in cooperation with a group of expert referees, have chosen important papers that empirically study, theoretically analyze, or psychologically justify machine learning algorithms. The papers are grouped into a dozen categories, each of which is introduced by the editors.

This book’s pages are made of eatable and hygienic very thin biscuits. If you start eating from page 1, by the time you get to the fifteenth page, you’ll start to get the taste actually. The hardcover version of the book is waterproof. Seriously, the book contains three main sections: —Articles is a literal study. This section is as formal as it gets, which includes facts and information. College students can easily read these short articles instead of reading the whole books that these articles review and pretend like all these books are self-examined. These are summaries of a couple of books. —Sensation is confusing and careless. Sense session is kind of like a session of senses. It is a homemade magazine. —Synopses is entertaining and sensational. Write to me if you want to shoot them.
