This book explains how the performance of modern cellular wireless networks can be evaluated by measurements and simulations With the roll-out of LTE, high data throughput is promised to be available to cellular users. In case you have ever wondered how high this throughput really is, this book is the right read for you: At first, it presents results from experimental research and simulations of the physical layer of HSDPA, WiMAX, and LTE.
Next, it explains in detail how measurements on such systems need to be performed in order to achieve reproducible and repeatable results. The book further addresses how wireless links can be evaluated by means of standard-compliant link-level simulation.
The major challenge in this context is their complexity when investigating complete wireless.
«Серед темної ночі» Бориса Грінченка – перша частина дилогії, повість, у якій поєднуються морально-філософські та соціальні проблеми***. Перу автора належать й інші твори, зокрема, «Батько та дочка», «На розпутті», «Пан Коцький», «Без хліба», «Каторжна», «Сам собі пан» тощо. Борис Грінченко відомий як талановитий письменник, який працював у жанрах прози, поезії та драматургії.
Якщо визначати жанр нового роману Володимира Войновича, то його можна назвати «роман-бомба», бо одразу після публікації він неодмінно вибухне. Адже письменник у ньому говорить про таке, про що у російському середовищі воліють мовчати – хто ж захоче відверто визнавати свої помилки та вади, зізнаватися в абсурдному устрої російського життя? …А починається все з того, що автора, від імені якого йде оповідь, вкусив кліщ. Витягти його.
Поланік знову шокує, і цього разу – божевільними ідеями навіть більше, ніж табуйованою лексикою. Щоб їх сприйняти, треба мати міцні нерви.
Або таке саме непроникно чорне почуття гумору, як у автора. Чи, може, просто бути одним із мільйонів його фанатів? Бо ніхто краще за Чака Поланіка не вміє вмикати почуття.
Не душевні, як інші, а брутально фізіологічні. У цих двадцяти трьох оповіданнях ви будете чути тріск електричного струму,.
Книга об умении манипулировать всеми риторическими средствами и методами для того, чтобы в процессе переговоров или выступления оппонент или аудитория пришли к необходимому для вас выводу. О способности отличать, в каком контексте и при каких вопросах ваши аргументы ничего не значат или, наоборот, являются решающими. Автор рассказывает, как устранять противоречия и давать «красную нить» каждому разговору, превращать.

Witches are dangerous. They can kill you with a look, or a word.
They can send their friend the Devil after you in the shape of a dog or a cat. They can make a clay picture of you, then break it… and a few weeks later you are dead.
Today, of course, most people don\'t believe in witches. But in 1612 everybody was afraid of them.
Young Jennet Device in Lancashire knew a lot about them because she lived with the Witches of Pendle. They were her family….
Right now, all over the world, people are using energy. As we drive our cars, work on our computers, or even cook food on a wood fire, we probably do not stop to think about where the energy comes from. But when the gas is gone and there is no more coal – what then? Scientists are finding new answers all the time. Get ready for the children whose running feet make the energy to bring water to their village; for the power station that uses warm and cold water to make energy; for the car that saves energy by growing like a plant…

The wind is strong on the Yorkshire moors. There are few trees, and fewer houses, to block its path.
There is one house, however, that does not hide from the wind. It stands out from the hill and challenges the wind to do its worst.
The house is called Wuthering Heights. When Mr Earnshaw brings a strange, small, dark child back home to Wuthering heights, it seems he has opened his doors to trouble.
He has invited in something that, like the wind, is safer kept out of the house.

There has never been so much pressure on nonprofit boards of directors to achieve a level of accountability that meets public and stakeholder expectations. Member-serving association boards may be especially challenged by their more complex affiliate structures and a greater emphasis on representative governance.
