The most complete, authoritative technical guide to the FreeBSD kernel’s internal structure has now been extensively updated to cover all major improvements between Versions 5 and 11. Approximately one-third of this edition’s content is completely new, and another one-third has been extensively rewritten. Three long-time FreeBSD project leaders begin with a concise overview of the FreeBSD kernel’s current design and implementation. Next, they cover the FreeBSD kernel from the system-call level down–from the interface to the kernel to the hardware. Explaining key design decisions, they detail the concepts, data structures, and algorithms used in implementing each significant system facility, including process management, security, virtual memory, the I/O system, filesystems, socket IPC, and networking. This Second Edition • Explains highly scalable and lightweight virtualization using FreeBSD jails, and virtual-machine acceleration with Xen and Virtio device paravirtualization • Describes new security features such as Capsicum sandboxing and GELI cryptographic disk protection • Fully covers NFSv4 and Open Solaris ZFS support • Introduces FreeBSD’s enhanced volume management and new journaled soft updates • Explains DTrace’s fine-grained process debugging/profiling • Reflects major improvements to networking, wireless, and USB support Readers can use this guide as both a working reference and an in-depth study of a leading contemporary, portable, open source operating system. Technical and sales support professionals will discover both FreeBSD’s capabilities and its limitations. Applications developers will learn how to effectively and efficiently interface with it; system administrators will learn how to maintain, tune, and configure it; and systems programmers will learn how to extend, enhance, and interface with it. Marshall Kirk McKusick writes, consults, and teaches classes on UNIX- and BSD-related subjects. While at the University of California, Berkeley, he implemented the 4.2BSD fast filesystem. He was research computer scientist at the Berkeley Computer Systems Research Group (CSRG), overseeing development and release of 4.3BSD and 4.4BSD. He is a FreeBSD Foundation board member and a long-time FreeBSD committer. Twice president of the Usenix Association, he is also a member of ACM, IEEE, and AAAS. George V. Neville-Neil hacks, writes, teaches, and consults on security, networking, and operating systems. A FreeBSD Foundation board member, he served on the FreeBSD Core Team for four years. Since 2004, he has written the “Kode Vicious” column for Queue and Communications of the ACM. He is vice chair of ACM’s Practitioner Board and a member of Usenix Association, ACM, IEEE, and AAAS. Robert N.M. Watson is a University Lecturer in systems, security, and architecture in the Security Research Group at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory. He supervises advanced research in computer architecture, compilers, program analysis, operating systems, networking, and security. A FreeBSD Foundation board member, he served on the Core Team for ten years and has been a committer for fifteen years. He is a member of Usenix Association and ACM.

Man is the greatest creature on the face of the earth. He is the intellectual being who can subject all other beings to serve him. The greatest thing in this man is his mind by which he reached the moon, dove into the depths of the oceans, and achieved the scientific miracles.Today, we enjoy these achievements as man managed to communicate with the whole world instantly in voice and image. Despite these numerous and great achievements, wars, tragedies, suffering, pains, and diseases are still increasing in all corners of the world; we have not been able to put an end to them yet, let alone the fact that we most of the times are the cause of them.If man, who made the computer in a stimulation of the human mind, has reached the latest operating systems of this computer, so what is the most efficient human operating system that can repair man and be suitable for him?And also in your own selves; can you not see? (Quran 51:21)

Conscious Language: The Logos of Now ~ The Discovery, Code, and Upgrade To Our New Conscious Human Operating System
How much power do our words really carry? Is it possible that our words-the air that we invite into the deepest recesses of our body and then carefully expel through the sacred organ of our vocal chords-have a power that is so great that it was intentionally confused over 5,000 thousand years ago? What would it mean to re-discover the secret of the language that heals our deepest hurts, breathes life into our greatest joys, and literally creates Reality itself? The result of over thirty years of research and the experiences of many thousands of people, Conscious LanguageTM - The Logos of NOW is the premier guide to conscious language in the 21st Century. Through 17 concise chapters, the pioneering work of Robert Tennyson Stevens masterfully leads us on a step-by-step journey in the new science of Conscious Languaging; the science of choosing the words that express our true intent, and knowing that our words are the quantum templates of health, abundance, peace and relationships! - Excerpt of foreword by Gregg Braden, New York Times Best selling author of: The Divine Matrix, The God Code, Secrets of the Lost Mode of Prayer, and The Isaiah Effect. Our outcome in Mastery Systems is to give tools and techniques for individuals to know their own highest choices in any situation, to express their choices with ease and clarity, and to have full-body alignment (head and heart) in their choices. Mastery of ourselves begins with using Conscious LanguageTM. Imagine installing on your inner "heart drive" a new Conscious Human Operating System which keeps you aware and awake to self-sabotage before it can act. Imagine a human computer virus checker which finds all those pesky viruses and limiting beliefs, lies, doubts and agreements with limitation and offers each limitation to your awareness for upgrading. The virus is called the Babel Virus. The upgrade is called Pure Speech (Conscious LanguageTM).

What Is Gravity?: The Enigma of Motion or Its Operating Systems and the Origin of Nuclear Gravitational Forces
Physics and philosophy seek to understand the reality of nature, the philosophical roots of physical events that bind the discrete parts of matter into one system. This manuscript places the problem of gravity into the larger context of philosophy and cosmology, unites philosophy and physics, more precisely, the areas where these two fields overlap. The problem of gravity can be solved only by means of the formula g1*w2=g2*w1, that calculates energy of gravity in macro and micro systems of nature and gives the design of real physical processes (Chapters 5,6,7). Cosmic space due to the submission of the celestial bodies to the law of universal equilibrium possesses gravitational forces in the kaleidoscope of common integrated areas, and their detailed calculations are useful for space exploration programs (Chapters 5,6,8). Using the new formula any physicist can calculate the gravitational nuclear forces (Chapter 7, examples 2,4,5). This book was created not only for students and professors of science or philosophy but also any reader who is interested to know what is the real picture of the world we live in.

Seventeen-year-old Thomas Van Zandt has finally figured out how to safely bring his extraordinary inner abilities outside his own body to help others. He can hook up his nervous system to someone else and help them heal. It’s heady stuff, this healing business, and sometimes, Thomas feels like he’s playing God.But God doesn’t make mistakes. And Thomas is not God.Tessa, Thomas’s girlfriend, has Huntington’s Disease, a rare genetic disorder that will soon turn her brain to mush. Thomas can heal her symptoms, but to cure her, he must figure out how to alter her genetics. So he starts experimenting on himself…And in a moment of crisis, Thomas makes a huge mistake: He accidentally replaces his genes with Tessa’s and loses his ability to control his autonomic nervous system.When Thomas discovers that his friend Tyrion has been growing human babies in the lab as specimens, and that the resulting research could bring back his abilities and also save Tessa, he’s faced with a decision:Is Tessa’s life and his abilities worth sacrificing his principles?AND, is it right to sacrifice a few for the good of the many?
