America Needs to Give a Damn What if America's greatest president was chosen by this generation? What if America's greatest economic revolution was seen by this generation? What if America put evil on its heels, on the run, and on the ash heap of history? Are those things possible? Absolutely, but it starts with "giving a damn". Bold, authentic, and refreshing. In 13 Reasons to Give a Damn In 2016, Brian Bosché combines his extensive knowledge of news and politics with his experience in media. He outlines 13 Reasons why Americans from across the political spectrum need to "give a damn" in 2016. Brian believes that America's greatest strength is brokenness. Our nation's debt, problems, and division has prepared us to become a strong, united front of greatness. It's not just about 2016, but that's where it begins. In each chapter, Brian digs deeper than the 30-second sound bites and media spin to get to the root causes of America's brokenness - and how it will lead to our country's restoration. Restoration begins with you. Are you ready to "give a damn" about America? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Bosché.

By turns funny, romantic, erotic, and sad, this evocative novel brilliantly recreates the landscape of late adolescence, when friendships seem eternal and loves reincarnate. Set in Arkansas but first published in Amsterdam, Clicking Beat on the Brink of Nada (published under the title of Cody in the United States) quickly won praise from reviewers and fans across Europe and North America. So beautiful, brave, and ahead of its time that William S. Burroughs was an early fan. Clicking Beat remains remarkably current and continues to be unique in coming-of-age literature.  "A haunting vision of young friendship shattered by an outrageously cruel world. Keith Hale’s novel aches with adolescent first loves. It is tender, funny, and true." (William S. Burroughs) "Don’t overlook Keith Hale’s Clicking Beat on the Brink of Nada. Hale commands much of J.R. Ackerley’s honesty, intimacy, and ease of style. Real warmth." (Jonathan Williams)  "Poetically evokes the pathos of early friendships and the frailty of adolescent dreams." (The Advocate)"Keith Hale has given his novel characters with tenderness, wit, and humanity. You should rush to purchase this book - a remarkable novel that deserves wide readership." (Bay Area Reporter)"Top of the heap of gay fiction." (Gay Community News)"The message transcends common reality.... The author charts the victory of substance over appearance, of everlasting truths over transient physical relationships. His characters give off warmth and forthrightness in equal portions." (This Week in Texas, Houston)"One of the best of its generation, this novel is beautifully written, exciting (and sexy), and full of incident and charm. Even minor characters are treated with Dickensian relish." (Gay Star, Belfast)"A novel about individualism, the right to be whatever you want to be. … This book should be read by kids a 1.

Troubleshooting Java Performance
37,44 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Troubleshoot the most widespread and pernicious Java performance problems using a set of open-source and freely-available tools that will make you dramatically more productive in finding the root causes of slow performance. This is a brief book that focuses on a small number of performance anti-patterns, and you'll find that most problems you encounter fit into one of these anti-patterns. The book provides a specific method in a series of steps referred to as the "P.A.t.h. Checklist" that encompasses persistence, alien systems, threads, and heap management. These steps guide you through a troubleshooting process that is repeatable, that you can apply to any performance problem in a Java application. This technique is especially helpful in 'dark' environments with little monitoring.Performance problems are not always localized to Java, but often fall into the realms of database access and server load. This book gives attention to both of these issues through examples showing how to identify repetitive SQL, and identify architecture-wide performance problems ahead of production rollout. Learn how to apply load like an expert, and determine how much load to apply to determine whether your system scales. Included are walk-throughs of a dozen server-side performance puzzles that are ready to run on your own machine. Following these examples helps you learn to:Assess the performance health of four main problems areas in a Java system: The P.A.t.h. Checklist presents each area with its own set of plug-it-in-now toolsPinpoint the code at fault for CPU and other bottlenecks without a Java profilerFind memory leaks in just minutes using heapSpank, the author's open-source leak detector utility that is freely available from heapSpank.orgThe repeatable method provided in this book is an antidote to lackluster average response times that are multi-second throughout the industry. This book provides a long absent, easy-to-follow, performance training regimen that will benefit anyone programming in Java. What You'll LearnAvoid the 6 most common ways to mess up a load testDetermine the exact number of threads to dial into the load generator to test your system's scalabilityDetect the three most common SQL performance anti-patternsMeasure network response times of calls to back-end systems ('alien systems')Identify whether garbage collection performance is healthy or unhealthy and whether delays are caused by problems in the old or new generation, so you know which generation needs to be adjustedWho This Book Is ForIntermediate and expert Java developers and architects. Java experts will be able to update their skill set with the latest and most productive, open-source Java performance tools. Intermediate Java developers are exposed to the most common performance defects that repeatedly show up in Java applications, ones that account for the bulk of slow-performing systems. Experts and intermediates alike will benefit from the chapters on load generation.

Queen Of Bones

Praise for Queen of Bones “A surprising journey . . . The intricate plot and the descriptions of today’s Cuban culture and society make this novel an entertaining and illuminating read.” — NBC News “Dovalpage wields her considerable authorial skill in this intricately plotted tale of jealousy, revenge, and the dark side of love.” —Isabella Maldonado, award–winning author of the Veranda Cruz mysteries “Queen of Bones is a fast-paced, richly layered tour de force. The twists, turns, and  santería rituals that abound in this complex noir will please crime readers and armchair travelers alike. Bravo, Teresa Dovalpage! Encore!” —Lucha Corpi, author of the Gloria Damasco mysteries “A lesser-known Cuba, with the kind of details that make it a home rather than a holiday, so an ocean breeze can carry a tinge of exhaust fumes. And it’s a suspense-filled Cuba, in which a door closing can sound like a gun shot . . . If you’re keen to explore Havana, heap a spoonful of Teresa Dovalpage’s storytelling onto your plate, and dig in!” — Chicago Review of Books “A vivid portrait of Cuba’s capital.” — Mystery Scene Magazine “Cuban-born New Mexico resident Dovalpage adeptly draws on her heritage, intertwining her native country's tumultuous history with the contemporary experiences of the Cuban diaspora. While the collision of past and present produces fatal results, the ensuing labyrinthine journey provides readers with plenty of compelling diversions along the way.” — Shelf Awareness “A story that blends intricate legwork in the name of investigating with a meditation on the meaning of family, nation, and home.” — Crime Reads “[An] enticing second Havana mystery . . . Dovalpage skillfully evokes the lights and shadows of life in Cuba . . . Vibrant supporting characters such as Padrino, a Santería priest, and Lt. Marlene Martínez, a police detective, lend color. This moving tale of love, loss, greed, and betrayal will also appeal to non-mystery readers.” — Publishers Weekly 'Cuba shines here, as Havana native Dovalpage contrasts its politics and society over a generation, making this a good bet for armchair travelers as well as mystery buffs.'  — Booklist “A truly atmospheric mystery that delves deep into the theme of homecoming and all the secrets we think we leave behind. The novel’s greatest strength lies in Dovalpage’s excellent portrayal of an island nation that has retained its unique cultural identity even as it adapts to the times, and its parallel to protagonist Juan Chiong’s own personal development . . . a rich exploration of Cuban life through the lens of a murder mystery.” — Criminal Element “Deftly unfolding details within the action, she reveals Cuba and its people as rich with fascination and depth . . . Dovalpage's writing hints at the possibility that she will be to Cuba what Donna Leon has become for Venice.” —New York Journal of Books Praise for Teresa Dovalpage “Amusing, observant . . . [A] devastating depiction of prejudice in 1980s Cuba.” —The Miami Herald 'Dovalpage's first crime novel is a well-cooked stew of culture and cuisine . . . [A] stunningly unexpected conclusion.' —The Taos News  “A rich and perceptive portrayal of daily life in Cuba.” —Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel '[A] dazzling culinary mystery . . . Those expecting a traditional food cozy will be happily surprised.'  —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
