Download or read book The Switch written by Dave Luton and published by Lulu.com. This book was released on 2012-03 with total page 57 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A world dictator who calls himself "the Chosen One" forces all his citizens to have implanted a switch which was invented by Hitler for the purpose of facilitating genocide and euthanasia. He claims to have more benign purposes than Hitler, but some people, including the book's narrator aren't buying. This story ends on a positive note as the story's main character overcomes depression and suicidal urges to find a purpose in life. However, the book's underground publisher issues a somber warning to the reader and to all who dare possess this book. Like George Orwell's novel 1984, this book is meant, at least in part, as a condemnation of totalitarianism, regardless of the ideology. However, this novel does reflect the author's personal disenchantment with capitalism. NOTE: THIS BOOK IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR MINORS DUE TO ITS SENSITIVE CONTENT.

Book excerpt: In his bestselling book QBQ! The Question Behind the Question, John G. Miller revealed how personal accountability helps to create opportunity, overcome obstacles, and achieve goals by eliminating blame, complaining, and procrastination. The result? Stronger organizations, more dynamic teams, and healthier relationships. Now Miller takes readers to the next level to show how they can use the power of the QBQ! and personal accountability every day. When a light switch is flipped the flow of energy that is released reaches the lightbulb in an instant, bringing it to life. Similarly, asking the right kind of question-a QBQ-is the first step to empowering what Miller calls the Advantage Principles-five essential practices that will lead to a richer experience in every aspect of life: - LEARNING: live an engaged and energized life through positive personal growth and change - OWNERSHIP: attain goals by becoming a solution-oriented person who solves problems - CREATIVITY: find new ways to achieve by succeeding "within the box" - SERVICE: build a legacy by helping others succeed - TRUST: develop deep and rewarding relationships With compelling real-life stories and keen insights, Miller demonstrates how anyone can find success and satisfaction by "flipping the switch."

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The main theory in this book is the fact that humans as a species have stopped evolving in-vivo. They are evolving in-caput. It means that humans by developping technology turn themselves into a never ending list of sub-species. The dynamics of in-caput evolution are modelled in Julia and described in detail in this book. All equations are described and Julia code listings are present in this book. The conclusions coming from those equations are the following: We have seen that “in caput evolution” can define the way by which the homo sapiens species operates. Defining with allometric equations, the “in caput evolution” is possible. In that case, the most plausible equation models succeed in defining the current humanity s-curve, with a time extension from -2000 CE to 6000 CE. All of a sudden, the current s-curve became visible. It is the technology that fuels this “in caput evolution” s-curve. The technology level allows us to predict the human population during the s-curve and the human lifespan. Interestingly the quarter-power law, so crucial in allometry, stay the course also in this case. If we believe in those equations, then the corresponding s-curves of the human population and technology level went through their maximum growth points during the last few decades. Therefore we have switched from growing growth to decreasing growth. Those were the years of the switch for this s-curve that can be defined as “the technarian age jump”. It is possible to plot factor population function of the technology level factor, which shows the functional response of humanity during the technarian age jump. It usually is not easy to diverge a lot from a functional response. But there are two sides to the functional response. One is the crowded side. Where there is more population and fewer resources, the other side is the smart side. They both go to the same point, but one side is the smarter and safer side. In front of factor population and factor technology level, it is possible to extend the definition of species fitness beyond simply the factor population but also the factor technology level into it. Life is a succession of s-curves reversely falling into negentropy. Before the "technarian age jump" s-curve, humanity went through the venatorian s-curve and the agrarian s-curve. Simplified models of venatorian, agrarian and technarian societies have been done to evaluate if dynamic societal movements could impact the main s-curve. But societal movements likely have only a limited impact on the overall humanity functional response. However, there has been an exciting result modelling the agrarian society. It appears that its well-documented plural centenarian instability cycle might actually be generated by elite over reproduction but also end especially by the elite loss of efficiency. The discovered allometry equations enable us to estimate that humans are right now the equivalent of a 98% material aggregation and 2% molecular aggregation. At the end of the technarian s-curve, they will be 99.5% material and 0.5% molecular. That is if nothing changes. But things will change. The new s-curve is getting started. It will be the one of The Singularity. It is unknown when and how it will play out. It is unknown if in the middle there will be a long or very long asymptotic phase, but it will be a crucially important and exciting time. Hopefully, humanity will fulfil its destiny of being a “Proteromonic” species.

This book was released on 2011-03-07 with total page 156 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This IBM® Redbooks® publication covers the IBM System Storage® SAN32B-E4 Encryption Switch, which is a high-performance stand-alone device designed to protect data-at-rest in mission-critical environments. In addition to helping IT organizations achieve compliance with regulatory mandates and meeting industry standards for data confidentiality, the SAN32B-E4 Encryption Switch also protects them against potential litigation and liability following a reported breach. Data is one of the most highly valued resources in a competitive business environment. Protecting that data, controlling access to it, and verifying its authenticity while maintaining its availability are priorities in our security-conscious world. Increasing regulatory requirements also drive the need for adequate data security. Encryption is a powerful and widely used technology that helps protect data from loss and inadvertent or deliberate compromise. In the context of data center fabric security, IBM provides advanced encryption services for Storage Area Networks (SANs) with the IBM System Storage SAN32B-E4 Encryption Switch. The switch is a high-speed, highly reliable hardware device that delivers fabric-based encryption services to protect data assets either selectively or on a comprehensive basis. The 8 Gbps SAN32B-E4 Fibre Channel Encryption Switch scales nondisruptively, providing from 48 up to 96 Gbps of encryption processing power to meet the needs of the most demanding environments with flexible, on-demand performance. It also provides compression services at speeds up to 48 Gbps for tape storage systems. Moreover, it is tightly integrated with one of the industry-leading, enterprise-class key management systems, the IBM Tivoli® Key Lifecycle Manager (TKLM), which can scale to support key life-cycle services across distributed environments.
