In this gripping thriller from the New York Times best-selling author of Out of the Ashes, an Islamic extremist is on a quest for vengeance after his only son is killed, and it's up to Op-Center to stop his lethal plot. General Bob Underwood - a special presidential envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL - is en route to the Syrian city of al-Bukamal when a rocket-propelled grenade strikes the side of his Humvee, and the heavily armored convoy comes under attack. The general's bodyguard is brutally murdered, and Underwood himself is kidnapped. Hours later the president and top officials watch in horror from the Oval Office as the general is viciously beheaded by an ISIL leader - broadcast on live television through a direct feed from Al Jazeera. The world is stunned by the bloody scene but even more so that this supposedly loose-knit terrorist organization was able to orchestrate a lethal attack on the world's most powerful military. American forces go into high gear on land and sea to retaliate, but when the ISIL leader's son is killed in an American bombing raid, his rage knows no bounds, and he determines to wreak vengeance on the American homeland itself. With everything in the balance, Op-Center must assemble both its domestic strike force as well as its international intervention force - built around a seasoned squad operating out of the secretive unit that captured Osama bin Laden - to stay one step ahead of a ruthless enemy. 1.

The exponential growth of interconnection networks transformed the communication process into an important area of research. One of the fundamental types of communications is one-to-all communication, i.e. broadcasting. Broadcasting is an information dissemination process, in which one node, called the originator, disseminates a message to all other nodes by placing a series of calls along the communication lines of the network. One of the main problems in broadcasting is the minimum broadcast graph problem. Minimum broadcast graphs are the sparsest possible networks of this type, which have the minimum number of communication lines denoted by B(n) where n is the number of nodes in networks. Until now, B(n) is known only for a few general broadcast graph families and for some particular, mostly small values of n. For all n 32 B(n) is known, except for n = 23, 24 and 25. These cases were subject of our study. We introduce the case-by-case analysis of each of these graphs in order to determine the lower bound on B(n). Our results improved previously known lower bounds and can be used in future studies to construct minimum broadcast networks on 23, 24 and 25 nodes.
Many models of parallel computation have been developed over the years. Models with shared memory are useful for deriving strong lower bounds, and have also been implemented recently. Models with reconfigurable buses have proven an excellent model for VLSI circuit design and are also easily implementable in VLSI. The hierarchy of either model has not been established completely, and the two models have not been related to each other. In this work we first collapse the hierarchy of reconfiguration, showing that Collision can simulate all the conflict resolution rules including the unrealistic but convenient Combining. We also collapse the hierarchy of shared memory, showing that the convenient but unrealistic Broadcast instruction does not add computational power. We then show that shared memory and reconfiguration are in fact equivalent. This simplifies greatly the area of parallel algorithms. Beside the obvious use for researchers in the area of parallel models, our work offers strong support for converting algorithms and techniques between shared memory and reconfigurable buses, and also for practitioners implementing PRAM models and algorithms or working on VLSI design.
The IMA conferences onCryptographyandCoding arenotonly a blend of these two aspects of information theory, but a blend of mathematics and engineering and of theoretical results and applications. The papers in this book show that the1999conferencewasnoexception. Indeed,weagainsawthemathematics- derlyingcryptographyanderrorcorrectingcodingbeing appliedto otheraspects ofcommunications,andwe alsosawclassicalmathematicalconcepts nding new applications in communications theory. As usual the conference was held at the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester, shortly before Christmas - this time 20-22 December 1999. The papers appear in this book in the order in which they were presented, grouped into sessions,eachsessionbeginning with an invited paper. Theseinvited papers were intended to re?ect the invitees views on the future of their subject - or more accurately where they intended to take it. Indeed the focus of the conf- encewas thefutureofcryptographyandcoding as seenthroughtheeyes ofyoung researchers. The r st group of papers is concerned with mathematical bounds, concepts, and constructions that form a common thread running through error corre- ing coding theory, cryptography, and codes for multiple access schemes. This is followed by a group of papers from a conference session concerned with app- cations. The papers range over various topics from arithmetic coding for data compression and encryption, through image coding, biometrics for authenti- tion, and access to broadcast channels, to photographic signatures for secure identi cation. The third set of papers deals with theoretical aspects of error c- recting coding, including graph and trellis decoding, turbo codes, convolution codes and low complexity soft decision decoding of Reed Solomon codes.
We all talk about the 'tube' or 'box,' as if television were simply another appliance like the refrigerator or toaster oven. But Cecilia Tichi argues that TV is actually an environment--a pervasive screen-world that saturates almost every aspect of modern life. In Electronic Hearth, she looks at how that environment evolved, and how it, in turn, has shaped the American experience. Tichi explores almost fifty years of writing about television--in novels, cartoons, journalism, advertising, and critical books and articles--to define the role of television in the American consciousness. She examines early TV advertising to show how the industry tried to position the new device as not just a gadget but a prestigious new piece of furniture, a highly prized addition to the home. The television set, she writes, has emerged as a new electronic hearth--the center of family activity. John Updike described this 'primitive appeal of the hearth' in Roger's Version: 'Television is--its irresistible charm--a fire. Entering an empty room, we turn it on, and a talking face flares into being.' Sitting in front of the TV, Americans exist in a safety zone, free from the hostility and violence of the outside world. She also discusses long-standing suspicions of TV viewing: its often solitary, almost autoerotic character, its supposed numbing of the minds and imagination of children, and assertions that watching television drugs the minds of Americans. Television has been seen as treacherous territory for public figures, from generals to presidents, where satire and broadcast journalism often deflate their authority. And the print culture of journalism and book publishing has waged a decades-long war of survival against it--only to see new TV generations embrace both the box and the book as a part of their cultural world. In today's culture, she writes, we have become 'teleconscious'--seeing, for example, real life being certified through television ('as seen on TV'), and television constantly ratified through its universal presence in art, movies, music, comic strips, fabric prints, and even references to TV on TV. Ranging far beyond the bounds of the broadcast industry, Tichi provides a history of contemporary American culture, a culture defined by the television environment. Intensively researched and insightfully written, The Electronic Hearth offers a new understanding of a critical, but much-maligned, aspect of modern life.
