- Offers readers a single-source entry into the world of cloud-centric, embedded intelligent sensory systems;
- Presents sensory networks in the context of “cloud computing”;
- Promotes the notion of migrating software on virtualized hardware;
- Emphasizes the role of redundant network communication and computation to optimize safety and security;
- Distinguishes between cloud, swarm and flock computing, in order to make the extended network more intelligent and therefore less dependent on the quality of the individual sensors.
- Essential reference to what's really going on at the network level
- Covers Telnet, FTP, HTTP, SMTP, ESMTP, IMAP4, POP3, NNTP, and LDAP
- IP4 and IP6
- Chapter 1 is a general introduction to networking concepts the understanding of which is required for reading the book. The chapter introduces the Open System Interconnection (OSI) networking framework, which defines seven layers for implementing network protocols, and the simpler TCP/IP model. It also explains the three different data transmission methods: synchronous, asynchronous, and packet.
- Chapter two focuses on tools that can be used to monitor data transfers on the network. Three tools are covered: MS Network Monitor and Ethereal.
- Chapter 3 discusses the first of the seven layers of the OSI model: the physical layer. Serial lines, modems, digital circuits, and other hardware devices are covered. The chapter also explains how the choice of the physical layer depends on the choice of the link protocol, with emphasis on Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, and Gigabyte.
- Chapter 4 explains the link layer, focusing on the following link protocols: Serial Line Internet Protocol (SLIP), Compressed SLIP (CSLIP), High-level Data Link Control (HDLC), Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP), Frame Relay, and Ethernet.
- Chapter 5 talks about the Internet Protocol (IP). It covers IP datagram, Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP), Address Resolution Protocol (ARP), Reverse ARP (RARP), and Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP).
- Chapter 6 covers IP addresses in IP version 4. The various classes of IP addresses, reserved IP addresses, net masks, subnetworks, and super networks.
- Chapter 7 covers IP routing and IP forwarding, including handling routing tables; routing protocols, such as Routing Vector Protocols (RVP) and Link State Protocols (LSP); and Neutral Exchange Point (NIX).
- Chapter 8 focused on IP version 6, which enlarges the IP address size from 4 to 16 bytes and introduces some changes to the IP datagram.
- Chapter 9 covers the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), the protocol that transfers data between applications on different computers.
- Chapter 10 presents the simpler alternative to TCP, the User Datagram Protocol (UDP).
- Chapter 11 covers the Domain Name System (DNS), which translates IP addresses into domain names and vice versa.
- Chapter 12-17 covers a number of application protocols, namely Telnet, FTP, HTTP, SMTP, ESMTP, IMAP4, POP3, NNTP, and LDAP.
- Appendix A covers working with CISCO routers. since CISCO is considered the dominant company in this area.

|LIGHT AND LENS : PHOTOGRAPHY IN THE DIGITAL AGE|
Friday, February 4, 2011
Mais la surprise dans cette triste vie du sérail tunisien vient de la forte personnalité de Leila, bien plus proche d’une Catherine de Médicis que d’une courtisane de boudoir. Son appât du gain et son habileté à placer les siens en font la digne héritière de Wassila Bourguiba, qui gouverna la Tunisie dans l’ombre d’un président vieillissant et malade. Connue pour la place faite aux femmes dans la vie publique, la Tunisie est le seul pays arabe où l’épouse du chef de l’État puisse prétendre à un tel rôle. Après l’influence, le pouvoir ? Alors que se préparait une nouvelle élection présidentielle truquée de Ben Ali, Leila tentait de se poser en régente, avec l’aide des siens et le silence complice de la France.
Nicolas Beau et Catherine Graciet plongent ici dans les arcanes, les alliances et les trahisons d’un pouvoir familial mesquin et perverti, qui tient lieu d’État dans une société à la dérive. Et où tous les signaux ? politiques, économiques et sociaux ? passent progressivement au rouge, tandis que le président et son entourage se préoccupent surtout de s’enrichir et de réprimer toute contestation.

7 books in 1
The series contains many allusions to traditional Christian ideas, presented in a format designed to make them easily accessible to younger readers; however, the books can also be read purely for their adventure, colour, and richness of ideas, and as a result have become favourites of children and adults, Christians and non-Christians alike. (They had, for example, considerable success in their Israeli Hebrew translation.) In addition to employing Christian themes, Lewis also borrows characters and ideas from Greek and Roman mythology, as well as from traditional British and Irish fairy tales.
The Chronicles of Narnia present the adventures of children who play central roles in the unfolding history of the fictional realm of Narnia, a place where animals talk, magic is common, and good battles evil. Each of the books (with the exception of The Horse and His Boy) feature as their protagonists children from our world who are magically transported to Narnia, where they are called upon to help the lion Aslan set some wrong to right.
