Cloud Computing: An Introduction

This overview of cloud computing in a “self-teaching” format, contains state-of-the art chapters with tips and insights about cloud computing, its architecture, applications, information on securityand privacy, and numerous case studies. It includes questions for discussion and “Cloud Computing Lab Experiments”to help in mastering its complex services and technologies. Recent research shows that cloud computing willbe worth billions of dollars in new investments. Organizations are flocking to the cloud services to benefit from the elasticity, self-services, resource abundance, ubiquity, responsiveness, and cost efficiencies that it offers. Many government and private universities have already migrated to the cloud. The next wave in computing technology, expected to usher in a new era, will be based on cloud computing.

C Programming: A Self-Teaching Introduction

Unlike many C programming books written by C programmers, this brief, self-teaching introduction was written by an instructor familiar with the needs of students. The book defines key programming terms as it teaches the basics of C programming. It contains numerous real world programming examples showing first the algorithm, immediately followed by the program for the algorithm, and then, its output. End of chapter exercises with “hints” help to review and master the material under discussion. An appendix with fifteen “C Lab projects” with their solutions is also included.Features•Defines key programming terms as it teaches the C programming language•Covers major topics such as arrays and pointers, structures and unions, file handling, and more•Includes numerous real world programming examples showing first the algorithm, followed by the program itself, then the desired outputBrief Table of Contents1: C-Overview. 2: Programming Using C. 3: Arrays And Pointers. 4: Structures and Unions. 5 File Handling In C.

Journey Through the Mirror: Book Two of the Rising World Trilogy

Following Journey Into the Flame—“a spiritual adventure of the first order” (New York Times bestselling author Felix Palma)—comes the second part in a post-apocalyptic trilogy about a set of ancient books that hold the key to humanity’s survival.In 2030, after the Great Disruption brought humanity to the brink of a second dark age, the Chronicles of Satraya were discovered, restoring hope in the world. But the secret powers in their pages remained largely unknown. There were some, however, who understood them. The Reges Hominum, the Kings of Men, a clandestine group influencing history from the shadows, sought to use their hidden gifts to regain world control. But their plans were foiled by an unlikely group: Alain Perrot, an eccentric old man and former member of the Council of Satraya; Special Agent Valerie Perrot, his daughter; and Logan Ford, a young painter who discovered he was the son of one of the Chronicles’ original finders, long since murdered in an effort to protect them. Soon, seemingly unrelated global events pull Logan and his allies into another contest with those enemies determined to bring a rising world back down. The earth’s still-recovering energy supply is put at risk. Illnesses spread. Earthquakes without epicenters shatter the land. And the only things holding the world together are the Chronicles, connected to a series of scattered, hidden mirrors around the globe. With T.R. Williams’s trademark excitement, mystery, magic, and deep wisdom, the second book in the Rising World trilogy ensures that you will never look at your reflection the same way again.

Don't Disturb the Dead: The Story of the Ramsay Brothers

In the 1970s and 80s a period of churn in Hindi films, when commercial cinema was at its Amitabh Bachchan-fuelled peak and art-house movies were truly pushing the envelope theRamsay brothers burst on to the scene with their horror film-making spree. They were subaltern films (of a sort), yes. Disruptive too. The industry refused to acknowledge them, and indeed hardly knew what to make of the movies, but the audience took to them with gusto.All these decades later, the family name remains synonymous with horror movies in India even among those who have never watched a Ramsay flick. But who were these film-makers really? Where did they come from? What impelled them? How did they pull it off? Don t Disturb the Dead is the story of their cinema, their methods and madnesses, about horror movies as a business model, and more. It is also an open-minded and affectionate ode to the disreputable Ramsay films, and to a family that was once a genre in itself.Through interviews with members of the family, the people they worked with, and through archival material on their work, the book traces the legend of the Ramsay brothers one of themost fascinating families in cinema anywhere and one whose contribution to cinema deserves to be recognized.

Music, Masti, Modernity: The Cinema of Nasir Husain

Nasir Husain by every appraisal as great a film-maker as Mehboob Khan or Raj Kapoor, Bimal Roy or Guru Dutt, Yash Chopra or Manmohan Desai yet unforgivably under-appreciated. His career as writer director producer, spanning nearly five decades, has shaped commercial Hindi cinema as it exists today. In fact, he remains to this day one of Hindi cinema s most commercially successful figures. Akshay Manwani takes the first big step to restore that balance with Music, Masti, Modernity: The Cinema of Nasir Husain.Starting off as a writer with films like Shabnam, Anarkali, Munimji and Paying Guest, Nasir Husain debuted as a director in 1957 with the smash-hit Tumsa Nahin Dekha. Over the next twenty years, he delivered one musical blockbuster after another, including Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hai, Phir Wohi Dil Laya Hoon, Teesri Manzil, Caravan, Yaadon Ki Baaraat and Hum Kisise Kum Naheen. The flamboyance and style of his films came to define the Hindi masala entertainer, replete with drama, comedy, action and great music. After a few blips in the 1980s, Husain bounced back strongly with his writing for Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak and Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, winning over a whole new generation. Music, Masti, Modernity examines the broad tropes of Husain s films, and also the enduring song-and-music sequences that were essential to his cinema. Through interviews conducted with a number of prominent industry insiders, such as Aamir Khan, Mansoor Khan, Asha Parekh, Javed Akhtar, Karan Johar, Farah Khan and Aditya Chopra, Husain s own family members, as well as film studies scholars, the book contextualizes Husain s legacy. We see him finally as more than the director of fun, frothy films; we see him as an important auteur of Hindi cinema.
