Nellie Walker Caver, a 1954 Oberlin High School graduate, married an abusive man following one semester of college. Determined to get out of her abusive marriage, she attended college at night. Despite illness, abuse, motherhood, and other challenges she received her BA after twelve years teaching Elyria City Schools during ten of those years. Her second marriage and mother’s death inspired her to devote her life to service. She became an advocate for teachers, children, education, and the community. Even with twenty-three surgeries, years of pain and illnesses she has for yourself and regardless continued her Christian walk and her service to mankind. She believes you must goal of the circumstances, adversities, or obstacles, with God’s help, strive to achieve those goals. This is a moving story of trials, tragedies, triumphs, and accomplishments despite adversities. It shows how she has persevered through it all with God’s help. After three near death experiences and her baptism in Jesus Name, she knew that she had to tell her story to inspire others. She needed to connect with others and let the light within her prove that God is real. Through Jesus we have the victory. She is a walking miracle because God is in control. She has a Masters from CSU and is a PRP with the NAP. She has served as an officer in the NAACP, NANBPWC, Doris L.

Book Summary:

Um mergulho interdisciplinar na origem e no uso dos algoritmos de nossos computadores e celulares, com dicas valiosas que nos ajudam a enfrentar problemas do dia a dia. Quando ouvimos falar em algoritmos, em geral pensamos em programas de computador que estão fazendo algum trabalho em nosso lugar. No entanto, os algoritmos — séries de passos usadas para resolver problemas — têm sido parte de nossas vidas desde a Idade da Pedra. Explicando com clareza problemas matemáticos célebres e descrevendo a origem e o funcionamento de vários algoritmos, o jornalista Brian Christian e o professor de psicologia e ciência cognitiva Tom Griffiths nos mostram que tanto seres humanos como computadores enfrentam limites e dificuldades para resolver problemas. Mais do que apontar os melhores caminhos para otimizar tarefas, este livro ilumina aspectos surpreendentes do funcionamento da mente humana, de nossas emoções e de nosso comportamento. Com o apoio de pesquisas multidisciplinares e de entrevistas com especialistas de diversas áreas, Algoritmos para viver é um mergulho revelador nos processos matemáticos que regem parte cada vez maior de nossa vida cotidiana.

Book Summary:

인생의 거의 모든 문제를 해결하는 데 도움을 주는 11가지 알고리즘! 알고리즘 설계라는 개념을 제안하며, 복잡한 문제를 가장 빠르게 해결하고 합리적인 선택을 만드는 방법을 알려주는 『알고리즘, 인생을 계산하다』. 세상은 알고리즘으로 움직인다. 알고리즘 관점에서 세상을 바라보고 우리가 직면한 문제의 기본 구조와 그 해결책의 특성을 알아낸다면, 우리는 자신이 실제로 얼마나 문제를 잘 해결하고 있는지를 간파하고 자신이 어떤 오류를 저지르는지 더 잘 이해할 수 있다. 컴퓨터공학자, 철학자인 브라이언 크리스천과 UC버클리대학교 인지심리학 교수인 톰 그리피스는 이 책에서 컴퓨터과학의 알고리즘을 우리의 선택 문제에 대입해 보여준다. 알고리즘을 통해 우리가 어떻게 하면 직감을 더 향상시킬 수 있는지, 일을 우연에 내맡겨야 할 때가 언제인지, 선택의 여지가 지나치게 많은 상황에 어떻게 대처할지, 남들과 관계를 맺는 좋은 방법은 무엇인지 등을 설명한다. 평생의 반려를 찾는 일부터 주차 공간을 찾는 일에 이르기까지, 이메일을 정리하는 방법에서 기억의 작동 방식을 이해하기에 이르기까지, 컴퓨터과학에서 얻은 지혜를 삶을 살아가는 전략으로 탈바꿈 할 수 있도록 구성한 이 책에서 두 저자는 최적 멈춤, 정렬하기, 캐싱, 일정 계획, 과적함, 무작위성, 네트워킹, 게임 이론 등 11가지 컴퓨터과학의 알고리즘을 소개하며 삶을 살아가는 지혜로 만들 수 있도록 이끌어준다. 이를 통해 우리의 일상을 바꾸고, 다른 사람의 마음은 물론 자신의 마음을 이해하는 데 도움을 준다.

Book Summary:

為什麼電腦科學家說,賽局理論「奈許均衡」的地位言過其實, 現代投資組合理論也不是資產配置的好建議? 亞馬遜書店「商務決策與問題解決類」、「電腦科學類」與「認知科學類」Top 1, 《麻省理工科技評論》選為年度最佳書籍, 各界讀者讚不絕口:「真是過癮!」 訪問近五十年來最知名演算法的設計者, 了解工程師如何教電腦發揮最大效用,並將所學用於生活。 讀者大推:「真是過癮!」 ▎說到演算法,你想到的是政府和大企業如何利用數學模型算計你? 其實,演算法的本質是「解決問題的一連串步驟」,它的發展遠遠早於電腦,不只長期為各研究領域與產業實務帶來重大變革,更能幫助個人跳脫盲點與錯誤直覺,明快地解決問題。 ▎說到機器學習,你以為考慮因素越多越好、比較複雜的模型較佳? 其實,當今電腦運算時並非套用死板的演繹邏輯,點滴不漏地羅列所有選擇,琢磨出正確答案。它們會捨棄不必要的資料,偏向選擇較簡單的解答,權衡誤差或延遲的代價,接著冒險一試。 ▎說到電腦,你認為它冰冷且毫無彈性,思考方式跟人腦南轅北轍? 事實上,我們面臨的許多挑戰,跟電腦科學家一樣都源於:要運用有限的空間、時間和注意力,因應未知事物和不完整的資訊,因此電腦解決問題的方式,能在極大程度上與人們的作法融合。 《決斷的演算》各章以常見的日常問題開場,從釐清它們的演算結構著手,以問題所屬類型為骨架(副章名),紮實的電腦科學發展史為血肉(章名),探討一代代的研究者為這類問題找出什麼解決方案,這些收穫顛覆了我們對於「合理」的看法,不僅幫助其他領域獲得新進展,也為個人生活帶來實用啟示,像是: ❖證明「所有雙人賽局至少有一個均衡狀態」的奈許均衡,讓約翰.奈許拿下了諾貝爾經濟獎,但它的地位可能言過其實。為什麼?(賽局理論) ❖自動駕駛汽車能改善交通阻塞,打造交通天堂?你可能要失望了。現在自私駕駛人各行其是的情形其實已接近最佳狀態。(演算法賽局理論,自主行為代價) ❖棉花糖實驗證明了意志力對日後的成就有深遠影響?事情沒這麼簡單。抵擋得住誘惑的另一個關鍵可能是「期望」……(貝氏法則) ❖以現代投資組合理論榮獲諾貝爾經濟獎的馬可維茲,居然把自己的退休金平均投資在債券和股票上!這未免太不聰明了?未必。(過度配適) ❖歐巴馬競選總統時,他的新媒體分析團隊靠什麼方法設計與經營網站,幫他多募得五千七百萬美元?(開發與善用) ❖安排球季賽程真麻煩!怎麼樣既符合聯盟基本結構產生的規定,又顧及聯盟和轉播電視台的特殊考量和限制?(鬆弛) ❖2010年5月6日,美國股市發生閃電崩盤,短短幾分鐘內有幾家公司股價飆漲、另幾家則直線崩跌,這是怎麼回事?(賽局理論,資訊瀑布) ❖一般認為年老健忘是認知衰退,但電腦科學家判斷,那是整理、取捨越來越多記憶的必然結果——人的腦袋可靈光了!(快取) ❖你打算在十八歲到四十歲期間覓得人生伴侶,那麼幾歲時選定的對象可能最好?答案是二十六歲。(最佳停止點,37%法則) ❖紙本資料用完隨手往旁邊疊,既沒條理又沒效率?不,根據演算法原理,這是目前已知最精良、效率最佳的資料結構。(快取) ❖什麼情況下,隨便挑一封電子郵件回覆,會好過先回覆最重要的郵件?(排程,往復移動) ❖為什麼玩吃角子老虎時,贏錢繼續玩同一台是好策略,但是輸錢就換一台則太過輕率?(開發與善用)…………… 電腦科學還能協助我們清楚劃分哪些問題有明確解答、哪些則無,從而選擇自己要面對什麼,以及要讓其他人面對什麼——這種「運算的善意」可以改變人們的認知問題類型,減輕認知負擔,增進互動的效率。 ▎本書用法: 這本書既適合一般讀者,也適合教學使用,版面設計兼顧兩者需求,使用方法詳見書中建議。各章內容提示詳見〈目錄〉的引文。 作者簡介 布萊恩‧克里斯汀Brian Christian 電腦科學家,合著的《決斷的演算》獲得《麻省理工科技評論》選為年度最佳書籍,另一著作《人性較量:我們憑什麼勝過人工智慧?》(The Most Human Human)則為《紐約時報》推薦書籍及《紐約客雜誌》年度推薦圖書。其他作品見於《紐約客》雜誌、《大西洋》雜誌、《連線》、《華爾街日報》、《衛報》和《巴黎評論》等,以及《認知科學》等科學期刊,曾被翻譯為十餘種語言。 湯姆‧葛瑞菲斯Tom Griffiths 加州大學柏克萊分校心理學和認知科學教授,並主持運算認知科學實驗室,曾經發表一百五十多篇科學論文,領域包含認知心理學和文化演變等,此外曾獲美國國家科學基金會、斯隆基金會、美國心理學會以及實驗心理學會等機構獎項。 譯者簡介 甘錫安 學業結束後由科學界踏入「譯界」,現為專職譯者。曾擔任Discovery頻道與資訊雜誌編譯,現仍定期為《科學人》及《BBC知識》等雜誌翻譯。書籍譯作包括《勝算:賭的科學與決策智慧》、《品嚐的科學》(合譯)、《愛因斯坦1905》、《氣候創造歷史》、《現代主義烹調》、《獵光聖經》等,熱愛吸收各類知識,正努力朝「全方位譯人」的目標邁進。

Book Summary:

Following the success of 'The Funeral Celebrant's Handbook', Barry H Young OAM has been inspired to write a sequel offering an abundance of choices of poems, prose and prayers to assist practising and aspiring funeral celebrants when planning a funeral. Families who wish to actually participate during the ceremony will also find a great depth of choice in this carefully considered volume which, like 'The Funeral Celebrant's Handbook', is also presented in orderly sequential sections (passages), beginning with meaningful, relevant and heartfelt openings through to the Committal and Benediction. Barry Young prefaces each passage with moving words of wisdom about the actual messages or thoughts that the readings following will impart. There are passages suitable for funeral ceremonies for the elderly, middle-aged, teenagers, babies, tragic occurrences, suicides and the lonely; those who cut themselves off from society; those without family and those affected by illnesses and drugs. It provides tributes from husbands and wives, tributes from sons and daughters, grandchildren and those who have served in the forces. Barry H Young OAM has been a member of the Australian Federation of Grief Celebrants since 1998. To hear him present a Farewell or Memorial Service is to be amongst the privileged. Being mindful of grief and the provision of comfort to young and old on his journey as a funeral celebrant, he has seen a need for such a book to assist celebrants to make each ceremony unique and meaningful for the loved ones. This book gives many inspirational choices of readings; it will also become a treasured and relevant handbook for celebrants.
