12. The New Storytellers

Slice PDF May 14, 2014
<p>Chapter 12</p><p>The New Storytellers</p><p>Women and men everywhere are behaving in an unprecedented way: audaciously taking responsibility for the whole human family and the future of life on the planet.</p><p>—HAZEL HENDERSON1</p><p>Small actions and choices can have major, although unpredictable, effects in determining what comes next. Among the possibilities is that the thousands of experiments and millions of choices to live more consciously will coalesce into a new civilization that fosters community, provides possibilities for meaning, and sustains life for the planet.</p><p>—SARAH</p><p>VANGELDER2</p><p>in the new story ordinary people are taking charge, assuming responsibility for themselves and their communities, and withholding their power from the institutions that have abandoned life for money. Each story involves its own heroes putting their modest means, and sometimes even their lives, on the line in service to the well-being of the whole.</p><p>What sets the more interesting of these stories apart from conventional stories of civic responsibility and acts of charity is the extent to which they involve people working together as communities to make conscious choices and take a stand against powerful establishment forces in order to create a future that places life ahead of money. Each story contributes to building a new consciousness of neglected possibilities that may extend far beyond the place of its origin.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/608603-the-post-corporate-world-life-after-capitalism">See more</a>

Standardowe moduły biblioteczne

Slice ePub September 23, 2014
<p>Standardowe moduły biblioteczne są zawsze dostępne, ale trzeba je zaimportować, by można było ich używać w modułach klienckich. Aby uzyskać do nich dostęp, należy skorzystać z jednego z poniższych formatów:</p><p><code>import</code> <em><code>moduł</code></em> i pobieranie nazw atrybutów (<em><code>moduł</code></em><code>.</code><em><code>nazwa</code></em>);</p><p><code>from</code> <em><code>moduł</code></em> <code>import</code> <em><code>nazwa</code></em> i używanie nazw modułu bez ich kwalifikowania (<em><code>nazwa</code></em>);</p><p><code>from</code> <em><code>moduł</code></em> <code>import *</code> i stosowanie nazw modułu bez ich kwalifikowania (<em><code>nazwa</code></em>).</p><p>Aby na przykład stosować nazwę <code>argv</code> z modułu <code>sys</code>, należy użyć instrukcji <code>import sys</code> i posługiwać się nazwą <code>sys.argv</code> lub instrukcji <code>from sys import argv</code> i korzystać z nazwy <code>argv</code>. Pierwsza, pełna forma — <em><code>moduł</code></em><code>.</code><em><code>nazwa</code></em> — jest używana tylko w nagłówkach zawartości list w celu zapewnienia kontekstu na wielostronicowych listingach. W opisach często jest wykorzystywana tylko <em><code>nazwa</code></em>.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/763073-python-leksykon-kieszonkowy-wydanie-v">See more</a>

11. Advanced Calculations

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>In the previous two chapters, you learned loads of ways calculations can make your databases work harder for you. But the functions you've learned so far can't make your databases work much <em>smarter</em>. For example, what if you want to add a five-percent delinquency charge to invoices over a month old? You could do it in any number of ways, from sorting invoice records to creating a special "past due balance" field. But they all either make extra work for the person using the database, or give you yet another field to worry about every time you tweak, troubleshoot, or repurpose the database. The most elegant solution is to let the database figure out for itself when an invoice is past due. In other words, you want to create a calculation that makes a <em>decision</em> based on current data, whatever it may be. This chapter shows you how to give your calculations that brainpower by using logical functions and other advanced techniques.</p><p>Before you read on, now's a good time to download a fresh copy of the working database. This chapter refers to some layouts and fields that your copy may not have. download a copy of this chapter's sample file at</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/363043-filemaker-pro-9-the-missing-manual-the-missing-manual">See more</a>

Chapter Six: The Accident

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p> <i>Chapter Six</i> </p><p>The Accident</p><p>When I woke up, it took a few seconds for me to remember where I was. Then I jumped up to see what everyone was doing.</p><p>One of the shepherds was making breakfast—some kind of pancake-things cooked on a flat stone in the fire. I ate mine so fast I barely noticed what they tasted like. I couldn’t wait to bring the sheep out to graze.</p><p>It was great fun to go with Benjamin and help him watch his sheep, get water from the well, and talk about everything!</p><p>Late in the afternoon, Hannah came up next to me as we walked with the sheep.</p><p>“Caleb,” she said in a low voice, “we need to figure out how to get home.”</p><p>“Oh, yeah. We forgot to ask about where the nearest phone is. But, Hannah, this is fun!” I said.</p><p>“Mom and Dad are going to be worried!” Hannah said.</p><p>“Well, we don’t know how we got here, and we don’t have any money to get a plane to fly home, so what can we do?” I asked.</p><p>“Caleb, I don’t think we could take a plane home even if we had the money,” said Hannah. The sound in her voice made me look at her—she was worried.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/440141-shepherds-to-the-rescue-gospel-time-trekkers-1">See more</a>

18. Securing, Managing, and Deploying Your Rails Projects

Source: Learning Rails
Slice ePub May 29, 2014
<p>When most people think about building a web application, they think about the design, programming, debugging, testing, and all the work that has to happen before an application goes live. Writing the codewhile, of course, criticalisnt the only major technology puzzle that has to get solved before an application runs. Bringing that application to the public (or even to an intranet) requires a few more critical steps that are as much about system administration as about code. The Rails framework approach is quite different from the usual CGI or PHP approach, so there are a fair number of Rails-specific issues you need to address.</p><p>First, you need to be prepared to battle the hostile nature of the Web. Every publicly exposed application will be tested and tried by a variety of visitors that you may not want or like, and even private applications sometimes face challenges from users. Using Rails isnt particularly dangerous, and a lot of key techniques for protecting your applications from harm have already been covered. Nonetheless, its worth reviewing some Rails features that can be especially helpful.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/364239-learning-rails">See more</a>
