First published in 1879, "Edinburgh: Picturesque Notes" is among the most vivid of Robert Louis Stevenson s writings. His passion for Auld Reekie never clouded his wry wit, and his enthusiasm for the picturesque detail and the savory anecdote will delight readers today as much as they scandalized his contemporaries. Perhaps best known as the author of "Treasure Island" and other children s literature, Robert Louis Stevenson was a prolific novelist, playwright, essayist, and travel writer.

A major study of Paul..... 'An exceptionally fine presentation of Pauline theology - detailed yet clear, lavishly documented yet readable; a major contribution to clarification and order in this confused and controversial field of study.' C. F. D. Moule....'Dunn assembles his classic, distinctive handiwork in a format that is seamless in its flow, up to date in its scholarship, and (as ever) easily accessible in its presentation.... As a resource book for the study of what Paul had to say on any particular topic, this book is unequalled, as one of the most important of modern Pauline scholars assesses the texts in his own distinguished way.'

It's hard to address all of Donald Trump's mistakes in 140 characters, but Meredith Forrester is doing her best. Since the announcement of the Presidential election in November 2016, Meredith has been using the power of grammar to copyedit the most powerful man in the world down to size. 'I realised that Twitter would be his preference for communication,' she says. 'And grammar and punctuation are all about getting an idea across really clearly.' So when one of his tweets the next day had a grammatical problem, she went for it. Chapters include: COMMAS, PRONOUNS, DANGLING MODIFIERS, EXCLAMATION MARKS, CAPITALISATION, SUPERLATIVES, DASHES + HYPHENS, QUOTE MARKS. In this smart, informative compact book you will not only laugh out loud at the incredible and cringe-worthy editorial errors made by Trump, you'll learn a thing or two about grammar as well.

The ESV Reader's Bible was created for those who want to read Scripture precisely as it was originally written-namely, as an unbroken narrative. Verse numbers, section headings, and translation footnotes are helpful navigational and interpretive tools, but they are also relatively recent conventions. In the ESV Reader's Bible they have been removed from the Bible text. The result is a new kind of Bible-reading experience in a volume that presents Scripture as one extended story line. On the top of each page a verse range is included for orientation. Other features include a single-column text setting, readable type, and a book-like format. The Reader's Bible is a simple but elegant edition, and is perfect for devotional reading, for extended Bible reading, or for focusing on the overarching narrative of the Bible. Black letter text, with no verse numbers or footnotes Single-column, paragraph format Two ribbon markers This Cloth Over Board edition is packaged in an attractive slipcase
Arius is widely considered to be Rowan Williams's magnum opus. Long out of print and never before available in paperback, it has been newly revised. This expanded and updated edition marks a major publishing event. Arianism has been called the "archetypal Christian heresy" because it denies the divinity of Christ. In his masterly examination of Arianism, Rowan Williams argues that Arius himself was actually a dedicated theological conservative whose concern was to defend the free and personal character of the Christian God. His "heresy" grew out of an attempt to unite traditional biblical language with radical philosophical ideas and techniques and was, from the start, involved with issues of authority in the church. Thus, the crisis of the early fourth century was not only about the doctrine of God but also about the relations between emperors, bishops, and "charismatic" teachers in the church's decision-making. In the course of his discussion, Williams raises the vital wider questions of how heresy is defined and how certain kinds of traditionalism transform themselves into heresy. Augmented with a new appendix in which Williams interacts with significant scholarship since 1987, this book provides fascinating reading for anyone interested in church history and the development of Christian doctrine.

The book presents new effective digital algorithms for processing audio and tonal signals characterized by high natural redundancy. The redundancy is fully preserved in headers of compressed audio frames in MPEG-1 Layer 2 format. Extensive computer modeling proved that it is possible to detect and correct all catastrophic errors in three fields of a frame header. It was suggested that a Hamming error detection code with parity bits be used on the encoder end and transmitted over the existing low-speed channel to the decoder. By correcting errors in frame headers one can significantly reduce requirements to the signal-to-noise ratio of satellite digital channels used for radio or TV audio broadcasting.Strong correlation between digital samples of an audio signal presented in the non-linear PCM format makes detectable errors in the most significant bits of sample codes perceived as �crackling�. To make sure that no double threshold excess occurs (i.e. no two disturbances of opposite signs exceed the threshold values set for the first signal derivative), the distorted sample is replaced with the previous one.The notion of interval "spectrum" is introduced for intervals between successive points where digital samples change sign. Knowing the sign bit of the PCM code, one can roughly estimate the width of the signal�s frequency spectrum and distinguish between music, speech and signaling tones. The book demonstrates feasibility of quick adaptation of sampling rate to the content of broadcast programs.An adaptive speech compression algorithm based on time-domain compression technique is analyzed. By using this algorithm, one can ensure recognition of isolated words with speech compression rate as high as 30 while maintaining acceptable quality of sound.The proposed error correction algorithms are described in detail in the Appendix. As a bonus, the software package implementing those algorithms along with 12 compressed audio files that represent different types of content can be downloaded for free fromhttps://www.dropbox.com/sh/s6ll5nxyga6vrnu/AACsuq8ehSK67adZZoctDD_-a?dl=0. The software allows simulating introducing, detection and correction of three types of catastrophic errors in the headers of compressed sound frames in MPEG-1 Layer-2 format.This book is addressed to researchers, practicing engineers and graduate students interested in adaptive digital processing of telecommunication signals with natural redundancy.
