In Flash Boys, Michael Lewis alleged that the entire U.S. stock market is rigged. This is an extraordinarily serious accusation. If it is true that a conspiracy of stock exchanges, banks, regulators and high-frequency traders has rigged the market, this has profound implications for every aspect of our financial system. It's rather surprising, then, that this book alleging a vast high-frequency trading conspiracy included no high-frequency traders. Flash Boys lacks a single insider's account, and it shows. Electronic trading is extremely complicated, and if you neglect to talk to any electronic traders, you're probably going to get it wrong. Flash Boys: Not So Fast, written by a former high-frequency trading executive and regulatory compliance expert, provides the missing insider's perspective on today's stock market and answers the question of whether or not Michael Lewis is right. Not So Fast reviews the alleged scams described by Lewis and applies the same rigorous analysis that real trading strategies are subjected to, methodically walking through them step by step and explaining what is actually possible in today's markets and what is not. Extensively researched and documented, Not So Fast provides a clear, accurate picture of how today's markets operate, including what works, what doesn't work, and what changes need to be made.

“Dr. Gundry is a true trailblazer, always at the forefront of scientific knowledge. The Plant Paradox shows the world what pioneer thinking is about and is a must-read book for anyone interested in being as healthy as nature has designed them to be.” -Alejandro Junger MD, New York Times bestselling author of Clean, Clean Gut and Clean Eats“The Plant Paradox elegantly explains how plants defend themselves from being consumed by humans, and how eating the wrong ones at the wrong times immeasurably hurts our health. An eye-opening read.” -Mehmet Oz, MD, Professor of Surgery, New York Presbyterian/Columbia UniversityMost of us have heard of gluten-a protein found in wheat that causes widespread inflammation in the body. Americans spend billions of dollars on gluten-free diets in an effort to protect their health. But what if we've been missing the root of the problem In The Plant Paradox, renowned cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry reveals that gluten is just one variety of a common, and highly toxic, plant-based protein called lectin. Lectins are found not only in grains like wheat but also in the “gluten-free” foods most of us commonly regard as healthy, including many fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and conventional dairy products. These proteins, which are found in the seeds, grains, skins, rinds, and leaves of plants, are designed by nature to protect them from predators (including humans). Once ingested, they incite a kind of chemical warfare in our bodies, causing inflammatory reactions that can lead to weight gain and serious health conditions.At his waitlist-only clinics in California, Dr. Gundry has successfully treated tens of thousands of patients suffering from autoimmune disorders, diabetes, leaky gut syndrome, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases with a protocol that detoxes the cells, repairs the gut, and nourishes the body. Now, in The Plant Paradox, he shares this clinically proven program with readers around the world.The simple (and daunting) fact is, lectins are everywhere. Thankfully, Dr. Gundry offers simple hacks we easily can employ to avoid them, including:· Peel your veggies. Most of the lectins are contained in the skin and seeds of plants; simply peeling and de-seeding vegetables (like tomatoes and peppers) reduces their lectin content.· Shop for fruit in season. Fruit contain fewer lectins when ripe, so eating apples, berries, and other lectin-containing fruits at the peak of ripeness helps minimize your lectin consumption.· Swap your brown rice for white. Whole grains and seeds with hard outer coatings are designed by nature to cause digestive distress-and are full of lectins.With a full list of lectin-containing foods and simple substitutes for each, a step-by-step detox and eating plan, and delicious lectin-free recipes, The Plant Paradox illuminates the hidden dangers lurking in your salad bowl-and shows you how to eat whole foods in a whole new way.

The book presents new effective digital algorithms for processing audio and tonal signals characterized by high natural redundancy. The redundancy is fully preserved in headers of compressed audio frames in MPEG-1 Layer 2 format. Extensive computer modeling proved that it is possible to detect and correct all catastrophic errors in three fields of a frame header. It was suggested that a Hamming error detection code with parity bits be used on the encoder end and transmitted over the existing low-speed channel to the decoder. By correcting errors in frame headers one can significantly reduce requirements to the signal-to-noise ratio of satellite digital channels used for radio or TV audio broadcasting.Strong correlation between digital samples of an audio signal presented in the non-linear PCM format makes detectable errors in the most significant bits of sample codes perceived as �crackling�. To make sure that no double threshold excess occurs (i.e. no two disturbances of opposite signs exceed the threshold values set for the first signal derivative), the distorted sample is replaced with the previous one.The notion of interval "spectrum" is introduced for intervals between successive points where digital samples change sign. Knowing the sign bit of the PCM code, one can roughly estimate the width of the signal�s frequency spectrum and distinguish between music, speech and signaling tones. The book demonstrates feasibility of quick adaptation of sampling rate to the content of broadcast programs.An adaptive speech compression algorithm based on time-domain compression technique is analyzed. By using this algorithm, one can ensure recognition of isolated words with speech compression rate as high as 30 while maintaining acceptable quality of sound.The proposed error correction algorithms are described in detail in the Appendix. As a bonus, the software package implementing those algorithms along with 12 compressed audio files that represent different types of content can be downloaded for free fromhttps://www.dropbox.com/sh/s6ll5nxyga6vrnu/AACsuq8ehSK67adZZoctDD_-a?dl=0. The software allows simulating introducing, detection and correction of three types of catastrophic errors in the headers of compressed sound frames in MPEG-1 Layer-2 format.This book is addressed to researchers, practicing engineers and graduate students interested in adaptive digital processing of telecommunication signals with natural redundancy.

(www.canammissing.com) People have been disappearing under mysterious circumstances for centuries. During the last 150 years the media has covered many of these cases and has attempted to put a rational spin on a very unusual event.After 3+ years and 7000 hours of intensive research there is a new paradigm being presented on people missing in the wilds of North America. "Missing 411" identifies 28 clusters of missing people who have vanished in remote areas of the continent. The finding is a troubling fact questioning why and how these people have disappeared. Some of the victims are found and tell a very interesting and mind bending story of their experience, others are never found, a fact that confounds searchers and law enforcement.There are many children that have disappeared under highly unusual circumstances. After weeks of searching and failing to find any evidence of the child being in a remote location, many parents and law enforcement draw the conclusion that the victim was kidnapped, yes, taken by someone lurking in remote areas of our national parks, forests, farms and even ranches.There are two editions of this research, "Missing 411-Eastern United States" and "Missing 411-Western United States." The eastern United States copy has a list of every person who is listed in each book as well as a final conclusion to the investigation. You will be shocked by the lack of interest and documentation that many of our governmental bodies have committed to missing people. After reading these books you will never look at our wildlands the same.Chapters;1.Introduction1A. Clusters1B. Unique Factors in Disappearances2. Missing People3. Unique Groups of Missing People3A.

Index"Major news organizations do a deplorable job of covering major stories and issues which are deemed too unusual or too far outside the box. Chances are, they will find a way to trivialize or ignore the disturbing evidence accumulated by David Paulides, a former law man turned investigative journalist. The paper trail uncovered by Paulides through sheer doggedness is impressive, the evidence indisputable. People are vanishing without a trace from our national parks and forests, yet government agencies are saying nothing. At a minimum, this story deserves space on the front page of every newspaper in the country, and it warrants a formal high level inquiry by the federal agencies whose files leave little doubt that something very strange is unfolding in our wilderness."George Knapp, Host, Coast to Coast AM

Forty years ago, Israeli psychologists Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky wrote a series of breathtakingly original studies undoing our assumptions about the decision-making process. Their papers showed the ways in which the human mind erred, systematically, when forced to make judgments in uncertain situations. Their work created the field of behavioral economics, revolutionized Big Data studies, advanced evidence-based medicine, led to a new approach to government regulation, and made much of Michael Lewis's own work possible. Kahneman and Tversky are more responsible than anybody for the powerful trend to mistrust human intuition and defer to algorithms. The Undoing Project is about a compelling collaboration between two men who have the dimensions of great literary figures. They became heroes in the university and on the battlefield-both had important careers in the Israeli military-and their research was deeply linked to their extraordinary life experiences. Amos Tversky was a brilliant, self-confident warrior and extrovert, the center of rapt attention in any room; Kahneman, a fugitive from the Nazis in his childhood, was an introvert whose questing self-doubt was the seedbed of his ideas. They became one of the greatest partnerships in the history of science, working together so closely that they couldn't remember whose brain originated which ideas, or who should claim credit. They flipped a coin to decide the lead authorship on the first paper they wrote, and simply alternated thereafter. This story about the workings of the human mind is explored through the personalities of two fascinating individuals so fundamentally different from each other that they seem unlikely friends or colleagues. In the process they may well have changed, for good, mankind's view of its own mind.

"A dazzling reconsideration of the language and translation of the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, from the acclaimed scholar and translator of classical literature (oThe best translation of The Aeneid, certainly the best of our timeo-Ursula Le Guin; oThe first translation since Dryden that can be read as a great English poem in itselfo-Garry Wills, The New York Review of Books), and author of Paul Among the People (oAstonishing . . . superbo-starred Booklist). a The King James Bible is considered the definitive and most accurate English translation of the Bible. But while its comparatively easy to read language allowed it to become accessible to millions of people who were barred by a lack of knowledge of the more esoteric Greek, Latin, and Hebrew versions, much gets lost in translation-particularly in tone and lyricism. Even the most commonly accepted Ancient Greek and Latin translations fail to maintain all of the intricacies of the original Hebrew text. a In The Face of Water, Sarah Ruden brilliantly, elegantly celebrates and translates the Bible's original languages and looks at how passages have been misunderstood over the centuries, at how the most commonly accepted English translations have been lacking in the intent of the original text. Ruden reveals both the poetry and lyricism-earthy, mysterious, infused with wit-that has made the Bible the compelling piece of literature it has been for more than a millennium. a Cross-referencing the popular King James interpretation of the Bible with Ruden's own direct translation of the ancient Hebrew, the author demonstrates with deftness and agility, the musicality of some of the most popular passages-the Lord's Prayer, Ezekiel's Dry Bones, and more."

He finds himself caught up in a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. "The Lord of the Rings "tells of the great quest undertaken by Frodo Baggins and the Fellowship of the Ring: Gandalf the wizard; the hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam; Gimli the dwarf; Legolas the elf; Boromir of Gondor; and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider. J.R.R. Tolkien's three volume masterpiece is at once a classic myth and a modern fairy tale a story of high and heroic adventure set in the unforgettable landscape of Middle-earth."

"Blood Meridian reads like a conflation of the Inferno, the Iliad, and Moby-Dick . . . an extraordinary, breathtaking achievement." --Independent (London) "Sepich lets us see how Cormac McCarthy went about crafting what he built, with the result that Blood Meridian . . . becomes more a wonderment than ever. This is constructive scholarship at its best." --Shelby Foote Blood Meridian (1985), Cormac McCarthy's epic tale of an otherwise nameless "kid" who in his teens joins a gang of licensed scalp hunters whose marauding adventures take place across Texas, Chihuahua, Sonora, Arizona, and California during 1849 and 1850, is widely considered to be one of the finest novels of the Old West, as well as McCarthy's greatest work. The New York Times Book Review ranked it third in a 2006 survey of the "best work of American fiction published in the last twenty-five years," and in 2005 Time chose it as one of the 100 best novels published since 1923. Yet Blood Meridian's complexity, as well as its sheer bloodiness, makes it difficult for some readers. To guide all its readers and help them appreciate the novel's wealth of historically verifiable characters, places, and events, John Sepich compiled what has become the classic reference work, Notes on Blood Meridian. Tracing many of the nineteenth-century primary sources that McCarthy used, Notes uncovers the historical roots of Blood Meridian. Originally published in 1993, Notes remained in print for only a few years and has become highly sought-after in the rare book market, with used copies selling for hundreds of dollars. In bringing the book back into print to make it more widely available, Sepich has revised and expanded Notes with a new preface and two new essays that explore key themes and issues in the work. This amplified edition of Notes on Blood Meridian is the essential guide for all who seek a fuller understanding and appreciation of McCarthy's finest work.

Extravagant, whimsical, and hot-tempered, Elizabeth was the epitome of power, both feared and admired by her enemies. Dubbed the "pirate queen" by the Vatican and Spain's Philip II, she employed a network of daring merchants, brazen adventurers, astronomer philosophers, and her stalwart Privy Council to anchor her throne—and in doing so, planted the seedlings of an empire that would ultimately cover two-fifths of the world. In <em>The Pirate Queen</em>, historian Susan Ronald offers a fresh look at Elizabeth I, relying on a wealth of historical sources and thousands of the queen's personal letters to tell the thrilling story of a visionary monarch and the swashbuckling mariners who terrorized the seas to amass great wealth for themselves and the Crown.

When the Eurozone collapsed in 2010, Greece faced a 300 billion euro black hole: the largest debt in history. In response, the EU imposed yet more loans on Greece under conditions of crushing austerity, money that flowed straight back to commercial banks in Frankfurt whose greed had caused the crisis. In 2015, their country ravaged by the cuts, the Greek people elected a new government with a mandate to reject the so-called bail-out. The man charged with making their case in Europe was Yanis Varoufakis. What ensued was one of the most spectacular and controversial battles in financial history, ending ultimately in Varoufakis's resignation. But no one actually knows what went on during those negotiations because Eurogroup discussions are held in secret. In this explosive account, Varoufakis reveals all: an extraordinary tale of brinkmanship and backstabbing that exposes the shocking reality of how power is wielded behind the scenes at the EU. It is a document that will shake the economic establishment to its foundations.

Copley's Essentials of Accounting for Governmental and Not-for-Profit Organizations, 12e is best suited for those professors whose objective is to provide more concise coverage than what is available in larger texts. The main focus of this text is on the preparation of external financial statements which is a challenge for governmental reporting. The approach in this edition is similar to that used in practice. Specifically, day to day events are recorded at the fund level using the basis of accounting for fund financial statements. Governmental activities are recorded using the modified accrual basis. The fund-basis statements are then used as input in the preparation of government-wide statements. The preparation of government-wide statements is presented in an Excel worksheet.
