Waking in Tears, 18 December 1966 (UD, 186/2/49)

Elizabeth Jennings Carcanet Press Ltd. PDF

Early advent this, and expectation.

A child, a voice will come from coldness.

Maybe a star will fall,

I am uncertain always.

Hold it, let it not corrode,

Shave off the rough edges of it and you have gold and warmth.

I dare that bird to be demure.

Someone should shout and rejoice.


I cannot speak the words I want to say

Because the languages betray too much.

I cannot tell you in a proper way

How love is still but allied to mere touch.

Always there is an absence and delay.

I handle gently what I want to clutch.

You teach me how to speak and how to lay

Words side by side. I have none of my own

You teach me what I want to write and say.

You see, the wishes and the speech have gone.

Simply with eyes and hands you touch and teach.

And I am lost and all the words are done.

The gift of tongues must take us out of reach.

Waking in Tears

This has never happened before –

Waking up crying

Sobbing and crying

Yet not remembering the nightmare.

When it happened last week I

Ran down the corridor

Looking for someone,

To ask for the Night Sister

The Broussards’ house in Beaumont stands empty and silent as the busy traffic of this thriving city in southeast Texas zips by. The blooming magnolia trees appear sad as they stand guard around it. Chessie Taylor lives in a comfortable house surrounded with big fig trees in the side yard. Chessie cooked for the Broussard family for fifty-five years, and of course this is her home.

Mr. and Mrs. Joe Broussard built this spacious home in 1909 for their family of eleven. Needless to say, it was brimming over with the activities of nine healthy children and is remembered as one of the happiest houses in this area. Papa Joe would beam broadly when his entire brood was around the big dining table. Even after the children married, this house was still the gathering place for all of them on special occasions such as birthdays, christenings, and Christmas, and the usual lively pace was even more lively with the hustle of twenty-six grandchildren and more than sixty great-grandchildren.

Joe Broussard was not only the patriarch of this fine family but a very strong force in the development and progress of the Beaumont area. When Joe was a young man, he tended cattle on his mother’s homeplace. He was also the home gardener, for he loved the soil and trusted it. He decided there were big things to be done in farming in that part of Texas. Lumber had been the mainstay in Beaumont in those days, but the pine and cypress trees had pretty well been cut out, and this land, bereft of its timber, was almost abandoned.

Mining Infrequent Patterns of Two Frequent Substrings from a Single Set of Biological Sequences

Abstract— This paper is devoted to considering mining infrequent patterns from biological sequences. Two typical approaches to find infrequent patterns are model-driven and data-driven, and each of them has advantages and disadvantages. As a mixed approach, FPCS (Finding Peculiar

Composite Strings) was proposed in a literature, where two substrings x and y are decided by given data and their concatenation xy is evaluated in a model-driven manner.

Although its effectiveness has already shown, it requires the background set of sequences, in addition to the target set.

In this paper, we propose another approach for infrequent patterns, which, given a single set of sequences, finds string patterns of two substrings frequent in the set. Therefore, the proposed approach is simpler than FPCS. Using biological features, such as RNA, of popular bacterial DNA sequences, the effectiveness of the proposed approach is evaluated. For

A. PythonAnywhere

Harry J. W. Percival O'Reilly Media ePub

Are you planning to use PythonAnywhere to follow along with this book? Here’s a few notes on how to get things working, specifically with regards to Selenium/Firefox tests, running the test server, and screenshots.

If you haven’t already, you’ll need to sign up for a PythonAnywhere account. A free one should be fine.

The next thing is that PythonAnywhere is a console-only environment, so it doesn’t have a display in which to pop up Firefox. But we can use a virtual display.

In Chapter 1, when we write our first ever test, you’ll find things don’t work as expected. The first test looks like this, and you can type it in using the PythonAnywhere editor just fine:

But when you try and run it (in a Bash console), you’ll get an error:

The fix is to use Xvfb, which stands for X Virtual Framebuffer. It will start up a “virtual” display, which Firefox can use even though the server doesn’t have a real one.

If, instead, you see "ImportError, no module named selenium“, do a pip3 install --user selenium.

13. DNS and DHCP

Brian Svidergol O'Reilly Media ePub

Active Directory is tightly coupled with the Domain Name System (DNS) name resolution service. Windows clients and domain controllers alike use DNS to locate domain controllers that are housed in a particular site or that serve a particular function (such as a global catalog server). Each domain controller registers numerous resource records (RRs) in DNS to advertise its services as a domain controller, global catalog server, PDC Emulator, and so on.

One of the innovative uses of Active Directory is as a store for DNS data. Instead of using the primary and secondary zone transfer method, or even the more recent NOTIFY method (RFC 1996) to replicate zone data between non-AD integrated DNS servers, AD integrated zones store the zone data in Active Directory and use the same replication process used to replicate other data between domain controllers. The one catch with AD integrated zones is that the DNS server must also be a domain controller, and overloading DNS server responsibilities on your domain controllers may not be something you want to do if you plan to support a large volume of DNS requests. You can integrate forward lookup zones, reverse lookup zones, and stub zones into Active Directory. Stub zones are used to maintain information about remote DNS zones and to reduce zone transfer traffic across WAN links. Additionally, you can use a GlobalNamesZone (GNZ), a manually maintained zone that is used to provide short name resolution on a DNS network: GNZ allows clients to resolve a hostname such as server1 via DNS instead of a fully qualified domain name such as For a detailed description of resource records, zone types, and much more on DNS, see Chapter8 of Active Directory, Fifth Edition, by Brian Desmond et al. (OReilly).
