Salt and Light became a book many years after Eberhard Arnold’s death. Its chapters were compiled and translated by members of the Bruderhof communities from articles, talks, and lectures from the years 1915–1935. Arnold grappled with the Sermon on the Mount his whole adult life. His relentless faithfulness to its demands bore practical fruit in a community movement that is still thriving today. Although Arnold was addressing a Germany in political and social ferment, his words are not bound to time and place. They direct us out of our bankruptcy to a new, revolutionary way.
During the last thirty years of his life, Albert Einstein sought relentlessly for a so-called unified field theory—a theory capable of
describing nature's forces within a single, all-encompassing, coherent framework. Einstein was not motivated by the things we
often associate with scientific undertakings, such as trying to explain this or that piece of experimental data. Instead, he was driven
by a passionate belief that the deepest understanding of the universe would reveal its truest wonder: the simplicity and power of the
principles on which it is based.
We live in an era where success is often defined by over-achievement in either our professional or personal lives. When we focus too much on our business or professional goals, our relationships can suffer. Likewise, when we ignore our professional development needs, our job security or business can be put at risk. We’re thrown into a constant state of unbalance between the relentless and competitive corporate work ethic, the “need-it-now” mentality encouraged by our dependency on technology, and the desire to see, do, and achieve more each day ...

This book is the result of relentless hard work on the part of
many talented people. While conducting research for the
book and developing content, we had the pleasure of meeting
and working with many marketers and hearing their stories—
many of which became the foundations for case studies in this book:
Lisa Gregg at American Express, Tim Riesterer at Ventaso, and
David Perry at Aspen Skiing Company.
Mobile and Wireless Communications have been one of the major revolutions of the late
twentieth century. We are witnessing a very fast growth in these technologies where mobile
and wireless communications have become so ubiquitous in our society and indispensable
for our daily lives. The relentless demand for higher data rates with better quality of services
to comply with state-of-the art applications has revolutionized the wireless communication
field and led to the emergence of new technologies such as Bluetooth, WiFi, Wimax, Ultra
Written by Microsoft software legend Juval Lowy, Programming WCF Services is the authoritative introduction to Microsoft's new, and some say revolutionary, unified platform for developing service-oriented applications (SOA) on Windows. Relentlessly practical, the book delivers insight, not documentation, to teach developers what they need to know to build the next generation of SOAs.
The need for computers and devices to communicate across a network is one of the key
ingredients of enterprise programming. In its relentless goal to simplify programming,
the .NET Framework includes a slew of new networking classes that are logical, efficient,
Changes that were unforeseen prior to the 1970s are now sweeping the field of manufacturing.
Competition from outside the United States is driving the forces of change. There is a relentless push for improvement in total quality, which includes the quality of service to the customer.
II In the movie Pi, Max Cohen is a brilliant number theorist trying to detect

The nowadays ubiquitous and effortless digital data capture and processing capabilities offered by the majority of devices, lead to an unprecedented penetration of multimedia content in our everyday life. To make the most of this phenomenon, the rapidly increasing volume and usage of digitised content requires constant re-evaluation and adaptation of multimedia methodologies, in order to meet the relentless change of requirements from both the user and system perspectives.
What are the compelling reasons for carrying out dynamic speech modeling? We provide the answer in two related aspects. First, scientific inquiry into the human speech code has been relentlessly pursued for several decades. As an essential carrier of human intelligence and knowledge, speech is the most natural form of human communication. Embedded in the speech code are linguistic (as well as para-linguistic) messages, which are conveyed through four levels of the speech chain.
In Profit and Loss, Mises explains how cost accounting is the critical institution that ferrets out social waste and ensures that resources are directed to their most highly valued ends, and how entrepreneurs respond to price signals. His presentation is systematic, relentless, and logical — Mises is capable of nothing less.
This book has a simple purpose: to explore the various dimensions of social inequality
that currently afflict the game of football in Britain. The contributors have written
variously against a background of euphoric public discourse about football, with waning
concern about football hooliganism, a string of new stadiums, the incessant tinkling of
cash registers at the top clubs and relentless media invocations of ‘the beautiful game’.
Relentless assaults on the frontiers of CMOS technology over several decades
have produced a marvel of a technology. The world we live in has been changed
by complex integrated circuits now containing a billion transistors with line
widths of less than 100 nm, fabricated in plants costing several billion dollars.
This microelectronics revolution was made possible only through the dedication
and ingenuity of many specialized experts with detailed knowledge of their crafts.
The marketplace for business schools today is characterized by relentless change. Increasing
competition from nonaccredited schools and globalization of the business education market
are among the root causes of the instability. Management education is at risk, and industry-
wide leadership is needed to position business schools to respond to emerging priorities
This report lays the foundation for this long-term initiative.
This is the way it was meant to be. Well, not all pixellated and virtual or
(at best) home-printed, but integrated, dammit, a single novel in a single
package, and fuck the beancounters and their Solomonesque book-splitting
travesties. We aren't in the old-school economy any more, Toto—
we're giving this stuff away now, and you can judge it for better or worse
as a single standalone entity. You may agree with Publisher's Weekly and
call this the capstone to one of the major works of hard-sf in the new century.
Richard Kadrey is a novelist, freelance writer, and photographer based
in San Francisco. Kadrey's first novel, Metrophage, was published in
hardcover in 1988 by Victor Gollancz Ltd., and went on to various other
American and foreign printings in paperback. Mac Tonnies' Cyberpunk/
Postmodern Book Reviews calls Metrophage "one of the quintessential
1980s cyberpunk novels," going on to describe "a gritty acid-trip through
an ultraviolent L.A. where nothing is what it seems… .

In recent history, H5N1 first appeared in 1997 in Hong Kong’s wet markets (live bird
markets) and chicken farms. Its spread was contained in Hong Kong at that point
following the culling of all poultry in the region. In 2003 the same virus resurfaced -
suggesting it had never been eradicated - and spread relentlessly across East Asia,
decimating the poultry population. In 2005, an outbreak in migratory wild birds in
Qinghai Lake, China killed 6000 birds (Normile 2006b).
