Pragmatic Insights for Successfully Managing Your Unique Agile Team or Organization In many organizations, management is the biggest obstacle to successful Agile development. Unfortunately, reliable guidance on Agile management has been scarce indeed. Now, leading Agile manager Jurgen Appelo fills that gap, introducing a realistic approach to leading, managing, and growing your Agile team or organization. Writing for current managers and developers moving into management, Appelo shares insights that are grounded in modern complex systems theory, reflecting the intense complexity of modern software development. Appelo's Management 3.0 model recognizes that today's organizations are living, networked systems; that you can't simply let them run themselves; and that management is primarily about people and relationships. Management 3.0 doesn't offer mere checklists or prescriptions to follow slavishly: rather it deepens your understanding of how organizations and Agile teams work, and gives you tools to solve your own problems. Drawing on his extensive experience as an Agile manager and trainer, Appelo identifies the most valuable elements of Agile management, and helps you improve each of them. Coverage includes Getting beyond "Management 1.0" command hierarchies, and "Management 2.0" fads Understanding how complexity and non-linearity affect your organization-and why the best-laid plans so often fail Giving teams the care and feeding they need to grow on their own Defining boundaries and constraints, so teams can succeed in alignment with company goals Anticipating issues teams won't or can't resolve by themselves Sowing the seeds for a culture of software craftsmanship Keeping your people active, creative, motivated, and energized Helping teams develop crucial missing skills and disciplines Crafting organizational networks and communication flows that promote success Making change desirable-and making stagnation painful Implementing continuous improvement that actually works Thoroughly pragmatic-and never trendy-Jurgen Appelo's Management 3.0 will help you bring greater agility to any software organization, team, or project.

I was born in a hovel on the banks of the Tyne...” Dominic Hall grows up in the sixties on a brand-new estate, along with the other families who escaped the river. But the Tyne is still an overwhelming presence, and most of the fathers work in the shipyards. Dom is torn between his new mates: Holly Stroud, his enchanting neighbour, and Vincent McAlinden, who's something else altogether – a wild, dangerous boy with murderous instincts. After his mother's death, Dom has to decide who he is, what he wants to be – and then face up to the consequences. 9781445046419 N N ©2014 David Almond;(P)2015 ISIS Audio Books http://www.audible.de/pd/B00SC4QIHA?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B00SC4QIHA?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true Fantasia of the Unconscious by D.H.

H. Lawrence is a unique work in the history of psychology. Unlike any other views of the time, it was written with the poetry, force, and audacity characteristic of Lawrence himself. This piece stands as a psychological curiosity and a literary gem that provides insight to Lawrence's own mental processes. Fantasia of the Unconscious sheds invaluable light on the work of one of the most acclaimed and infamous modernists in literary history. No message stands alone. It is a relationship between the author and the audience, a snapshot of a living interaction, and it is only from this perspective that any classical piece can be fully understood. With this in mind, both the author and the climate of his time have been taken into account in a summary that precedes the narration of the full text. This summary includes a biography of and background information on the author and an overview of the work. Also included are reviews by chapter, a synopsis and an analysis, and a section exploring the historical context, criticisms, and social implications of the work. With a full critical analysis and insight that makes the central themes accessible to students and interested parties of all backgrounds, this narration of D.H. Lawrence's Fantasia of the Unconscious is a must-hear.

For others the word brings to mind the idea of a denomination. But the Church is much more. In this audiobook Dr. R. C.

Beginning with the ancient Nicene Creed, which affirms that the church is “one, holy, catholic, and apostolic,” Dr. Sproul provides accessible teaching on one of the most misunderstood of all Christian doctrines. 9781633890183 N N ©2014 eChristian;(P)2014 eChristian http://www.audible.de/pd/B00SU4DG04?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B00SU4DG04?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true Space Review (Unabridged) 15.95 AVAILABLE Space Review (Unabridged) Space Review (Unabridged) Albert K.

Bender's Space Review, a collection of volumes from Bender's quarterly magazine of the same name. Bender was the founder of the first major UFO club in the world, the International Flying Saucer Bureau (IFSB), founded in 1952. Even though the bureau was a great success, it was mysteriously closed down the following year. This rare anthology was originally published in conjunction with Bender's first book, Flying Saucers and the Three Men, which was beset by various jinxes", Men in Black attacks, missing manuscripts, psychic disturbances, and other unusual delays. Until now, these issues of Space Review were only available to members. For the first time ever, they are being made available for the general public to enjoy. Inside, one finds interesting details that may lead to some understanding of what exactly happened to Bender, who became a media star after announcing he had been taken to a "bisexual" planet, Kazik. According to Bender, the denizens of Kazik had not only surrounded Earth with an array of orbiting spacecraft, but had also buried "motherships" in remote regions like Antarctica, in an effort to extract a key substance from our seawater. Bender's colorful descriptions of the people of Kazik, having received wide attention in the early days of ufology, influenced a generation of saucer enthusiasts, who put the stories into mass circulation. As a result, many elements of Bender's fantastical tale can still be found today, in programs like Futurama, The Matrix, X-Files, and countless others. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Machell.

A special “Psychology Matters” section within each chapter focuses on Using Psychology to Learn Psychology, offering practical advice for increased academic success. (ex. p. 79)“Connection" arrows link material across chapters, showing clear relationships between concepts in various topical areas. An explanatory note accompanies the marginal arrow, giving the reader a quick review or preview of the related discussion found in other chapters. This conveys to students that the discipline of psychology contains many interconnecting threads that weave together to provide meaning across topics, rather than functioning as a set of isolated facts and topics. (ex. p. 68)The Discovering Psychology Viewing Guide at the end of each chapter in the text includes a program review and activities tied to the Discovering Psychology video series, helping students tie text concepts to what they see in the videos. Students can access the Discovering Psychology videos online through MyPsychLab whenever and wherever they want. They can also complete an online, automatically scored review quiz. (ex. p. 84)PERSONALIZE LEARNING The new MyPsychLab delivers proven results in helping students succeed, provides engaging experiences that personalize learning, and comes from a trusted partner with educational expertise and a deep commitment to helping students and instructors achieve their goals. New MyPsychLab Video Series - This new video series offers the most current and cutting-edge introductory psychology video content. These exclusive half-hour videos take the viewer into today’s research laboratories, inside the body and brain, and onto the street to experience real-world applications. In MyPsychLab, students can also access the Discovering Psychology videos, which provide an overview of historic and current theories of human behavior, and feature many of the researchers and studies introduced in this textbook. The New Experiments Tool, found in MyPsychLab, allows students to experience psychology through online experiments that reinforce class lessons and textbook content. A New Read More section in MyPsychLab offers interested students the opportunity to explore topics that branch out from the core concepts presented in the text. The Pearson eText allows students to access their textbook anytime, anywhere, and any way they want—including listening online or downloading to their iPad. A personalized study plan for each student, based on Bloom’s Taxonomy, arranges content from less complex thinking—like remembering and understanding—to more complex critical thinking—like applying and analyzing. This layered approach promotes better critical-thinking skills, and helps students succeed in the course and beyond. Assessment tied to every video, application, and chapter enables both instructors and students to track progress and get immediate feedback. With results feeding into a powerful gradebook, the assessment program helps instructors identify student challenges early—and find the best resources with which to help students. An assignment calendar allows instructors to assign graded activities, with specific deadlines, and measure student progress. Class Prep collects the very best class presentation resources in one convenient online destination, so instructors can keep students engaged throughout every class. IMPROVE CRITICAL THINKING Chapter Opening Problems are designed to get students engaged in the material from the onset. Students are encouraged to think through the problem as they read the chapter, using the core concepts presented to help them resolve the problem. A special effort has been made in this new edition to provide clues throughout the chapter that will help students understand the solution to the chapter-opening problem. The Chapter Summary now gives a brief “answer” to the problem as well. (ex. p. 40)Critical Thinking applications at the end of each chapter help students become better consumers of scientific information and build upon the critical thinking skills introduced in the first chapter. (ex. p. 80)“Do It Yourself!” learning activities offer simple demonstrations of psychological principles and allow students to actively apply psychological concepts alone or in groups, further enhancing their understanding. (ex. p. 81)“Psychology Matters” applications within each chapter section explore connections between psychology and everyday life and promote critical thinking by helping students evaluate many of the psychological ideas they will encounter in popular press (e.g. emotional differences between men and women, the origin of sexual orientation, the side effects of psychoactive drugs, etc.).

ENGAGE STUDENTS A “Key Question” opens each chapter section and a “Core Concept” is presented as a brief answer. These Key Questions and Core Concepts help students understand the big picture and guide them through the chapter material. Chapter overview maps and chapter-ending summaries are organized around the “Key Questions” and “Core Concepts” to further reinforce learning.

(ex. p. 81)“Check Your Understanding" self-tests within each chapter provide immediate reinforcement and help students assess what they know and where they need further study. Questions are broken down to focus on recall, analysis, or application of the material. One of the “Check Your Understanding” questions always focuses on the chapter's “Core Concept.” This approach is deliberately used to reinforce the student's use of the “Core Concepts.” (ex. p. 62)“Do It Yourself!" learning activities offer simple demonstrations of psychological principles and allow students to actively apply psychological concepts alone or in groups, further enhancing their understanding.&nbsp IN THIS SECTION: 1.)

One of Ours is a novel by Willa Cather which won the 1923 Pulitzer Prize. It tells the story of the life of Claude Wheeler, a native of Nebraska around the turn of the 20th century. The son of a successful mid-western farmer and an intensely pious mother, thus guaranteed a comfortable livelihood, Claude Wheeler nonetheless views himself as a victim of his father's success and his own inexplicable malaise. One of Ours is a portrait of a peculiarly American personality: it is the story of a young man born after the American frontier has vanished, yet whose quintessentially American restlessness seeks redemption on a frontier far bloodier and more distant than that which his forefathers had already tamed. CHAPTER 1 Claude Wheeler opened his eyes before the sun was up and vigorously shook his younger brother, who lay in the other half of the same bed. 'Ralph, Ralph, get awake! Come down and help me wash the car.' 'What for?' 'Why, aren't we going to the circus today?' 'Car's all right. Let me alone.' The boy turned over and pulled the sheet up to his face, to shut out the light which was beginning to come through the curtainless windows. Claude rose and dressed,-a simple operation which took very little time. He crept down two flights of stairs, feeling his way in the dusk, his red hair standing up in peaks, like a cock's comb. He went through the kitchen into the adjoining washroom, which held two porcelain stands with running water. Everybody had washed before going to bed, apparently, and the bowls were ringed with a dark sediment which the hard, alkaline water had not dissolved. Shutting the door on this disorder, he turned back to the kitchen, took Mahailey's tin basin, doused his face and head in cold water, and began to plaster down his wet hair. Old Mahailey herself came in from the yard, with her apron full of corn-cobs to start a fire in the kitchen stove. She smiled at him in the foolish fond way she often had with him when they were alone.

Desperate to discover a cure for the cyclical 48-year-fever, known as Trailmen's fever, Dr. Randall Forth persuades a colleague, Dr. Jay Allison, to undergo hypnosis. He calls forth a secondary personality, Jason Allison, is gregarious and an experienced mountain climber, while Dr. Jay Allison is a cold, clinical man with no outdoor skills. Jason is asked to lead an expedition into the Hellers to collect medical volunteers from among the Trailmen. Accompanying him are Rafe Scott, Regis Hastur, Kyla Raineach, a Renunciate guide, and several others. During the trip, Jay/Jason yo-yos between his two personalities - one warm and charming, the other distant and clinical. Jason, the warm personality, falls in love with Kyla..... By the time I got myself all the way awake I thought I was alone. I was lying on a leather couch in a bare white room with huge windows, alternate glass-brick and clear glass. Beyond the clear windows was a view of snow-peaked mountains which turned to pale shadows in the glass-brick. Habit and memory fitted names to all these; the bare office, the orange flare of the great sun, the names of the dimming mountains. But beyond a polished glass desk, a man sat watching me. And I had never seen the man before. He was chubby, and not young, and had ginger-colored eyebrows and a fringe of ginger-colored hair around the edges of a forehead which was otherwise quite pink and bald. He was wearing a white uniform coat, and the intertwined caduceus on the pocket and on the sleeve proclaimed him a member of the Medical Service attached to the Civilian HQ of the Terran Trade City. I didn't stop to make all these evaluations consciously, of course. They were just part of my world when I woke up and found it taking shape around me. The familiar mountains, the familiar sun, the strange man. But he spoke to me in a friendly way, as if it were an ordinary thing to find a perfect stranger sprawled out taking a siesta in here. 'Could I trouble you to tell me your name?'
