Big Data is a new field, with many technological challenges to be understood in order to use it to its full potential. These challenges arise at all stages of working with Big Data, beginning with data generation and acquisition. The storage and management phase presents two critical challenges: infrastructure, for storage and transportation, and conceptual models. Finally, to extract meaning from Big Data requires complex analysis. Here the authors propose using metaheuristics as a solution to these challenges; they are first able to deal with large size problems and secondly flexible and therefore easily adaptable to different types of data and different contexts. The use of metaheuristics to overcome some of these data mining challenges is introduced and justified in the first part of the book, alongside a specific protocol for the performance evaluation of algorithms. An introduction to metaheuristics follows. The second part of the book details a number of data mining tasks, including clustering, association rules, supervised classification and feature selection, before explaining how metaheuristics can be used to deal with them. This book is designed to be self-contained, so that readers can understand all of the concepts discussed within it, and to provide an overview of recent applications of metaheuristics to knowledge discovery problems in the context of Big Data.

Nikola Tesla, Thomas Commerford Martin The Inventions, Researches and Writings of Nikola Tesla, with Special Reference to His Work in Polyphase Currents and High Potential Lighting

2011 Reprint of 1894 Edition. Special care has been taken to render the numerous illustrations in this edition as true to the original as possible. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. "The Inventions, Researches and Writings of Nikola Tesla" is a book compiled and edited by Thomas Commerford Martin detailing the work of Nikola Tesla. The book is a comprehensive compilation of Tesla's work and profusely illustrated. Written at the end of the 19th century, the book is a record of Tesla's pioneering activities, research, and works. Tesla is recognized as one of the foremost electrical investigators and inventors. At the time of publication, the book was the "bible" of every electrical engineer practicing the profession. The book includes Tesla's lectures, miscellaneous articles and discussions, and makes note of all his inventions up to the date of publication, particularly polyphase motors and the effects obtained with currents of high potential and high frequency. The book demonstrates that Tesla continued on the scientific frontier, barely pausing for an instant to work out details of utilization that may have at once been obvious to him. Wherever possible his own language was employed in the writing of the book.

Thomas Ramey Watson The Necessity of Symbols

What Body? You still believe the body is a temple for the spirit? Then read Thomas Ramey Watson and be delighted and appalled with him! The Necessity of Symbols plays again and again on the sacredness of the body-the body in love, the body in ecstasy of spirit and memory, even the body of Christ in communion. Like the forgotten troubadours, the poet gives a credible poetic ground that loving the beloved's body is close to loving God, or at least appreciating the universe. "Knot Intrinsicate" celebrates a woman's power:I am seventeen- you, soft-voiced Guenevere. But a Russian doll, you held inside Mary, hawk of Catholicism, and Cleopatra, salad of the crescent world: eaten-undone-whole again. In a long poem that summarizes loss of job, loss of wife, loss of environment (Colorado), the poet holds psalms and songs in memory step by step of the way, shoring up the many threats to his spiritual life ("A Book of Hours"):My mind stayed on echoes: whether one eats God's words, or wakes within them- does upheaval always follow? In the poem, "Holy Communion," the poet does not scruple to equate the host with two lovers, who, as the poem progresses are separated, however, with the finite limits between them implicitly contrasted to God's infinite love: "Broken from you, / I am set on a shelf." However, the lover remains an inspiration: Rising past the fragrance of ankles and thighs, lingering on chest and neck, to pause on tiny moles like ...

George W. Carey Relation of the Mineral Salts of the Body to the Signs of the Zodiac

2013 Reprint of 1930 Edition. Exact facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. George Washington Carey (1845-1924) was an American physician known for a number of 1910s 'Chemistry of Life' publications, a subject which he referred to as biochemistry, particularly his 1919 "The Chemistry of Human Life". Carey combined a mixture of religion, astrology, physiology, anatomy, and chemistry, themed particularly with a mineral-based theory of human disease, to develop his theories. Carey is popular among the new-age and homeopathic circles. In the context of a person viewed as a "human molecule", Carey was the first to state that a person's body is a "chemical formula in operation." This title is the first part: "Relation of the Mineral Salts of the Body to the Signs of the Zodiac", of this classic and later publication; "The Zodiac and the Salts of Salvation." With the renewed interest in homeopathy, increased study of astrology and the entrance of the Aquarian Age, this book has gained more importance. It is an attempt to answer all the questions regarding the cell salts.

Michael Spörke Living with the myth of Janis Joplin

To many people, Big Brother and the Holding Company has always meant Janis Joplin. Big Brother, who gave Janis a platform for success by giving her the freedom and the energy to develop her musical style, were considered amateurish and unprofessional by many reviewers. Simply put, Janis Joplin's fame and glory overshadowed the band. This book tells the band's story, how difficult it was to find an identity separate from Joplin's towering talent. Big Brother and the Holding Company were and are far more than a Janis Joplin backup band. Big Brother were the pioneers of the San Francisco sound and are among the outstanding representatives of psychedelic music. This book describes the life story of each of the members of Big Brother: where they came from, what their roots were, how they see their time with Janis Joplin, and what they experienced afterwards. It has been written with the close participation of the musicians themselves.

It is commonly assumed that the rise of modern democracies put an end to the spectacular and ceremonial aspects of political rule that were so characteristic of monarchies and other earlier regimes. The medieval idea that the king had two bodies – a mortal physical body and an eternal political body – strikes us today as alien and remote from our understanding of politics: with the transition from monarchy to modern representative democracy, the idea of the body politic was abandoned. Or was it? In this remarkable and highly original book Philip Manow shows that the body politic, though so often pronounced dead, remains alive in modern democracies. It is just one of the many ideas that we have inherited from our predecessors and that continue to shape our modern forms of political life. Why did the semi-circle become the main seating plan for modern parliaments? Why do we think that parliament should mirror the diversity of society? Why does the president's motorcade always have more than one identical-looking Cadillac? Why do we pay so much attention to the physical features and appearance – the body – of our political leaders today? In answering these and other questions Manow sheds fresh light on the pre-modern origins of our modern political institutions and practices and shows convincingly that all political power – including democracy – requires and produces its own political mythology.
