This carefully crafted ebook: ´´The Religious Affections´´ is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. A Treatise Concerning Religious Affections is a famous publication written in 1746 by Jonathan Edwards describing his philosophy about the process of Christian conversion in Northampton, Massachusetts, during the First Great Awakening, which emanated from Edwards´ congregation starting in 1734. Edwards wrote the Treatise to explain how true religious conversion to Christianity occurs. Edwards describes how emotion and intellect both play a role, but ´´converting grace´´ is what causes Christians to ´´awaken´´ to see that forgiveness is available to all who have faith that Jesus´ sacrifice atones for all sins.
Offers a detailed projection of the consequences of the Trump administration and a forward-thinking analysis of how enlightened ideas can be defended from the issues they currently face. This follows ´´Financial Times´´ columnist Luce´s ´´Time To Start Thinking´´.
Fashion is ever-changing, and while some styles mark a dramatic departure from the past, many exhibit subtle differences from year to year that are not always easily identifiable. With overviews of each key period and detailed illustrations for each new style, How to Read a Dress is an authoritative visual guide to women´s fashion across five centuries. Each entry includes annotated color images of historical garments, outlining important features and highlighting how styles have developed over time, whether in shape, fabric choice, trimming, or undergarments. Readers will learn how garments were constructed and where their inspiration stemmed from at key points in history - as well as how dresses have varied in type, cut, detailing and popularity according to the occasion and the class, age and social status of the wearer. This lavishly illustrated book is the ideal tool for anyone who has ever wanted to know their cartridge pleats from their Récamier ruffles. Equipping the reader with all the information they need to ´read´ a dress, this is the ultimate guide for students, researchers, and anyone interested in historical fashion.
This detailed volume includes protocols that represent the breadth of microbial metabolomics approaches to both large-scale and small-scale experiments with intention of highlighting techniques that can be used for applications ranging from environmental microbiology to human disease. Utilizing mass spectrometry as their primary measurement tool, the chapters explore microbial metabolomics, metabolism and microbial physiology, metabolite sample preparation, current analytical techniques used to profile primary and secondary metabolites and lipids, as well as establishing data analysis workflows for targeted metabolomics, untargeted metabolomics, analysis of metabolic fluxes, and genome-scale models. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include introduction to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step readily reproducible protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and practical, Microbial Metabolomics: Methods and Protocols serves as an ideal reference for both novice and advanced users and can be adapted to similar analytical platforms or customized to suit the needs of the researcher.
Need to move a relational database application to Hadoop? This comprehensive guide introduces you to Apache Hive, Hadoop?s data warehouse infrastructure. You?ll quickly learn how to use Hive?s SQL dialect?HiveQL?to summarize, query, and analyze large datasets stored in Hadoop?s distributed filesystem. This example-driven guide shows you how to set up and configure Hive in your environment, provides a detailed overview of Hadoop and MapReduce, and demonstrates how Hive works within the Hadoop ecosystem. You?ll also find real-world case studies that describe how companies have used Hive to solve unique problems involving petabytes of data. * Use Hive to create, alter, and drop databases, tables, views, functions, and indexes * Customize data formats and storage options, from files to external databases * Load and extract data from tables?and use queries, grouping, filtering, joining, and other conventional query methods * Gain best practices for creating user defined functions (UDFs) * Learn Hive patterns you should use and anti-patterns you should avoid * Integrate Hive with other data processing programs * Use storage handlers for NoSQL databases and other datastores * Learn the pros and cons of running Hive on Amazon?s Elastic MapReduce
This book provides up-to-date descriptions of the various areas of applied bioinformatics, from the analysis of sequence, literature, and functional data to the function and evolution of organisms. Bioinformatics is a relatively new field of research. It evolved from the requirement to process, characterize, and apply the information being produced by DNA sequencing technology. The production of DNA sequence data continues to grow exponentially. At the same time, improved bioinformatics such as faster DNA sequence search methods have been combined with increasingly powerful computer systems to process this information. Methods are being developed for the ever more detailed quantification of gene expression, providing an insight into the function of the newly discovered genes, while molecular genetic tools provide a link between these genes and heritable traits. Genetic tests are now available to determine the likelihood of suffering specific ailments and can predict how plant cultivars may respond to the environment. The steps in the translation of the genetic blueprint to the observed phenotype is being increasingly understood through proteome, metabolome and phenome analysis, all underpinned by advances in bioinformatics. Bioinformatics is becoming increasingly central to the study of biology, and a day at a computer can often save a year or more in the laboratory. The volume is intended for graduate-level biology students as well as researchers who wish to gain a better understanding of applied bioinformatics and who wish to use bioinformatics technologies to assist in their research. The volume would also be of value to bioinformatics developers, particularly those from a computing background, who would like to understand the application of computational tools for biological research. Each chapter would include a comprehensive introduction giving an overview of the fundamentals, aimed at introducing graduate students and researchers from diverse backgrounds to the field and bring them up-to-date on the current state of knowledge. To accommodate the broad range of topics in applied bioinformatics, chapters have been grouped into themes: gene and genome analysis, molecular genetic analysis, gene expression analysis, protein and proteome analysis, metabolome analysis, phenome data analysis, literature mining and bioinformatics tool development. Each chapter and theme provides an introduction to the biology behind the data describes the requirements for data processing and details some of the methods applied to the data to enhance biological understanding.
Twenty-five years ago, Michael Green, John Schwarz, and Edward Witten wrote two volumes on string theory. Published during a period of rapid progress in this subject, these volumes were highly influential for a generation of students and researchers. Despite the immense progress that has been made in the field since then, the systematic exposition of the foundations of superstring theory presented in these volumes is just as relevant today as when first published. A self-contained introduction to superstrings, Volume 1 begins with an elementary treatment of the bosonic string, before describing the incorporation of additional degrees of freedom: fermionic degrees of freedom leading to supersymmetry and internal quantum numbers leading to gauge interactions. A detailed discussion of the evaluation of tree-approximation scattering amplitudes is also given. Featuring a new preface setting the work in context in light of recent advances, this book is invaluable for graduate students and researchers in general relativity and elementary particle theory.
