St. Eustatius

Slice ePub May 25, 2014
<p> Like Saba, Sint Eustatius (hereafter Statia) is a reminder of what the Caribbean was like before the islands were overrun with tourists and mega-resorts. The small island has a population of only 2,000 residents and a bounty of natural beauty on land and sea. But see it now. Statia reported a 25tel. jump in visitors in 2006 and its secrets are slowly being uncovered by modern day adventurers and day-trippers from St. Kitts and St. Martin. </p><p> The major topographic feature on Statia is The Quill, a 1,968-ft dormant volcano with an interior crater that forms a terrarium for the lush rainforest within. The islands volcanic history spawned fantastic beauty above and below sea level, where lava blocks and flows created interesting shapes for coral to glom onto. The dive environment today is rich in sea life studiously protected by the St. Eustatius National Park (STENAPA) system. </p><p> Another attraction of this dot in the Caribbean is its history as a lively trading port. It was also the first foreign entity to formally recognize the United States as a country during the Revolutionary War. Because there has not been rampant development, many of the historical buildings and artifacts have remained intact and, fortunately, the powers-that-be recognize the value in preserving and protecting the islands past. The buildings and artifacts provide a look at life in the Colonial period, and ongoing archeological digs are still uncovering the islands valued history. </p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/615485-st-martin-sint-maarten-island">See more</a>

17. Internationalization

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>Internationalizing an application means making it world-ready. There are two processes involved:</p><p>The process of designing an application so that it can adapt to different cultures</p><p>The process of translating the application's resources for a specific culture</p><p>Internationalizing an application requires explicit planning during the initial design. It generally consists of three steps:</p><p>Designing for globalization by ensuring the application is culture and language neutral. In other words, any content whose display depends on culture or language cannot be hardcoded in the HTML or program code.</p><p>Designing for localization by ensuring that no data that is culture-or language-specific is contained in the code and that the required data is obtained from resource files.</p><p>Creating specific resource files to support each culture and language.</p><p>A few samples of internationalization are included. If you need to internationalize an application, you would do well to obtain training or purchase one of the many books dedicated to the subject.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/363083-asp-net-2-0-cookbook">See more</a>

8. Controlling Puppet Agent

Slice ePub August 16, 2014
<p>In the previous chapter, we showed how to use Puppet to install and configure MCollective. In this chapter, we’re going to show you how MCollective can:</p><p>Use the Puppet classes applied to the node in filters</p><p>Use facts known by Puppet in filters</p><p>Query, start, stop, and restart the Puppet agent</p><p>Run the Puppet agent with special command-line options</p><p>Query and make changes to the node using Puppet resources</p><p>If you are using Puppet, you will be quite happy with the level of control MCollective gives you. MCollective allows new ways of using Puppet that simply aren’t possible from agent, cron-run, or even command-line usage of Puppet.</p><p>The first thing we need to do is install the MCollective Puppet agent. Installation of this is identical to the agents we installed in Chapter 5. Since we know you have Puppet installed, we’ll dispense with the command-line installation and show you to do it with Puppet: </p><p>If you use Hiera, you can install the agent with a simple listing of the Puppet agent in the <code>mcollective::plugin::agents</code> array. In this example, we’re going to show you an example where we set the Puppet agent dependencies to ensure that the Puppet client is installed on the host:</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/747233-learning-mcollective-parallel-server-management-in-puppet-and-chef">See more</a>

APPENDIX B. Books for children and young people

Slice ePub May 22, 2014
<p>Below I present a brief synopsis of some books written for children on the subjects of death and dying. I review the death theses reflected in each story in terms of dimensions of the “mature concept” of death (e.g. finality, universality, dysfunctionality), as well as the dimensions that go “beyond the mature concept” of death (e.g. continuity, and connection) presented in Chapter Two. I also address each story’s approach to mourning, grieving, and managing the effects of loss. The words in bold reflect the particular death theses and approaches to mourning emphasized in each story.</p><p>•   Althea. (1982). <i>When Uncle Bob Died.</i> London: Dinosaur Publications.</p><p> <i>Death theses</i> </p><p>When Uncle Bob dies, the young boy in the story learns that death is caused by illness and old age, that it is <b>final </b>and <b>universal, </b>and that all function ceases.</p><p>Having had the opportunity to remember his uncle by talking with his parents, he also learns how the dead person can <b>live on in our memories.</b></p><p> <i>Mourning</i> </p><p>The mourners in the story experience both sadness and anger, and it is acknowledged that we sometimes pretend that the dead person will come back, to help ourselves feel better. The family attends the funeral, where they are able to say goodbye. <b>Talking </b>and <b>remembering </b>Uncle Bob helps so that they can carry <b>on with life, </b>which includes times of joy and pleasure.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/254512-psychosocial-practice-within-a-residential-setting">See more</a>

1. Female sexual perversion

Slice ePub May 22, 2014
<p>I</p><p>HAVE FOUND MYSELF recalling are mark made to me a long time ago by a man given to reflections on the oddities of the human race. He thought it remarkable that, even though the two sexes had looked at each other throughout all recorded time, they still seemed unable to understand each other. I wonder if this sour half-truth is not partly justified by the tendency of each sex to project on to the other its expectations of its own kind? In a world where it has been the prerogative of men to teach and to write books, this would partly account for the continued poverty of our understanding about the predicaments of women. It is not that women have been neglected, rather that false assumptions have been made and women as well as men have been ready to accept them. However, these assumptions may have different origins.</p><p>Psychoanalysis gave us access to the unconscious mind and to the motivations underlying our actions. Then we optimistically believed that we had been enriched in our understanding of the opposite sex and were nearer to a mutual self-knowledge. This proved to be a premature assumption; the search for this enlightenment is still in a developmental stage.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/325151-mother-madonna-whore-the-idealization-and-denigration-of-motherhood">See more</a>
