Piratak (Haur eta gazte literatura) (Basque Edition) by Severino Calleja Pérez

By Severino Calleja Pérez

Beti oso zaila izan da garai eta range guztietan itsasoak zeharkatu dituzten nabigatzaile, abenturazale, merkatari, soldadu eta esploratzaileen artean piratak zein ziren eta zein ez bereiztea. Ez da erraza ezta itsasoko lapur horiei buruzko istorioetan egia eta asmakizuna zer den bereiztea, haien bizitzak sekretuan edo elezaharretan nahasten baitira.Kontakizun hauetan, pirateriaren historiako une desberdinak adierazten dituzten lekukotasun batzuk bildu nahi izan ditugu. Horregatik, piratei buruzko istorio-sortzaile ospetsuenetako batzuen lanen zatiak aukeratu ditugu, hala nola Daniel Defoe, Emilio Salgari, Herman Melville edo R.L. Stevensonenak, eta horiekin piraten ibilerei dagozkien garai eta lekurik adierazgarrienetara hurbildu gara.

SOFTWARE ENGINEERING ESSENTIALS, Volume III: The Engineering by Richard Thayer,Merlin Dorfman,Steve Tockey,Friedrich Bauer

By Richard Thayer,Merlin Dorfman,Steve Tockey,Friedrich Bauer


Volume I: The Engineering Fundamentals

A multi- textual content software program engineering direction or classes (based at the 2013 IEEE SWEBOK) for undergraduate and graduate college scholars

A self-teaching IEEE CSDP/CADA certificates examination education path in keeping with the pc Society’s
CSDP examination specifications

These software program engineering books serves separate yet attached audiences and roles:
1.Software engineers who desire to examine for and move both or either one of the IEEE desktop Society's software program engineering certification tests.
The qualified software program improvement expert (CSDP) and is offered to software program engineers who've five to 7 years of software program improvement event and cross the CSDP examination. This certification used to be instituted in 2001 and establishes that the certificates holder is a reliable software program engineer in such a lot parts of software program engineering such as:
•Software venture manager
•Software developer
•Software configuration manager
•Software quality-assurance expert
•Software try out lead
•And so forth
the opposite certificates is for contemporary software program engineering graduates or self-taught software program engineers and is precise qualified software program improvement affiliate (CDSA). The CSDA additionally calls for passing an examination, yet doesn't require any expert experience.
2.University scholars who're taking (or interpreting) a BS or MS measure in software program engineering, or working towards software program engineers who are looking to replace their wisdom.
This publication was once initially written as a advisor to assist software program engineers take and cross the IEEE CSDP examination. although a number of reviewers commented that this publication could additionally make a great college textual content booklet for a undergraduate or graduate direction in software program engineering.

These new Volumes I and II supply a whole and distinctive review of software program engineering as outlined in IEEE SWEBOK 2013. those books offer an intensive research of software program improvement in requisites research, layout, coding, checking out, and upkeep, plus the helping approaches of configuration administration, caliber insurance, verification and validation, and experiences and audits.
To stay alongside of evolution of the software program (as expressed via evolution of the SWEBOK consultant, CSDP/CSDA, and the curriculum guidance) a 3rd quantity within the Soft-ware Engineering sequence is required. This 3rd quantity contains:
•Software Engineering Measurements
•Software Engineering Economics
•Computer Foundations
•Mathematics Foundations
•Engineering Foundations
This three-volume, software program Engineering necessities sequence, offers an summary photograph of the software program nation of the perform in a sort that could be a lot more straightforward to digest than the SWEBOK consultant. The three-volume set can also be a worthwhile reference (useful way past undergraduate and graduate software program engineering collage courses) that gives a concise survey of the intensity and breadth of software program engineering.
These new KAs exist in order that software program engineers can exhibit a mastery of medical expertise and engineering. this is often in resolution to the feedback of software program engineering that it doesn't comprise adequate engineering to qualify it as an engineering discipli

Gordon Getty is a Prick by Grant MacDonald

By Grant MacDonald

I earned the Getty Oil corporation shareholders 4 Billion dollars …
On the Reserve acquisition; the best way they deal with me -- it relatively sucks!
As the Getty inheritors indulge in glee;
All I requested for was once that they appear after me.
Four billion funds they earned on Reserve
My expense I without doubt deserve.
It seems J.P. Getty can have been a Nazi;
His kinfolk even is going again to Germany.
With Hitler, Goring & Goebbels he did stand;
While attempting to undermine the yankee land!
For work & artifacts he did receive
With his oil he was once in a position to deceive?
Hoover & the FBI and Roosevelt they knew -- That J.P. Getty & espionage he drew!
Many a tender lad and Jew did die; As planes dropped bombs from the sky.
For years whereas Getty sat in Berlin; He could have devoted many a sin.
The ashes and smoke from the chimneys it rose; whereas previous guy Getty sat comfortable; he chose.
With art held tightly less than his arm
Still dripping in blood -- because the actual proprietor met harm.
Into the ovens & on meat-hooks, bullets among the eyes
Listen very conscientiously one could pay attention their cries!
While the Gettys sit down in England; at their property at Wormsley
And Gordon sings in San Francisco; along with his 727 in tow.
The Getty museum sits atop Malibu
While the corpses of global conflict 2 scream -- J.P. Getty -- we all know you!
