"Mesmerizing & fascinating..." --The Seattle Post-Intelligencer "The Freakonomics of big data." --Stein Kretsinger, founding executive of Advertising.com Award-winning | Used by over 30 universities | Translated into 9 languages An introduction for everyone. In this rich, fascinating -- surprisingly accessible -- introduction, leading expert Eric Siegel reveals how predictive analytics works, and how it affects everyone every day. Rather than a "how to" for hands-on techies, the book serves lay readers and experts alike by covering new case studies and the latest state-of-the-art techniques. Prediction is booming. It reinvents industries and runs the world. Companies, governments, law enforcement, hospitals, and universities are seizing upon the power. These institutions predict whether you're going to click, buy, lie, or die. Why? For good reason: predicting human behavior combats risk, boosts sales, fortifies healthcare, streamlines manufacturing, conquers spam, optimizes social networks, toughens crime fighting, and wins elections. How? Prediction is powered by the world's most potent, flourishing unnatural resource: data. Accumulated in large part as the by-product of routine tasks, data is the unsalted, flavorless residue deposited en masse as organizations churn away. Surprise! This heap of refuse is a gold mine. Big data embodies an extraordinary wealth of experience from which to learn. Predictive Analytics unleashes the power of data. With this technology, the computer literally learns from data how to predict the future behavior of individuals. Perfect prediction is not possible, but putting odds on the future drives millions of decisions more effectively, determining whom to call, mail, investigate, incarcerate, set up on a date, or medicate. In this lucid, captivating introduction -- now in its Revised and Updated edition -- former Columbia University professor and Predictive Analytics World founder Eric Siegel reveals the power and perils of prediction: * What type of mortgage risk Chase Bank predicted before the recession. * Predicting which people will drop out of school, cancel a subscription, or get divorced before they even know it themselves. * Why early retirement predicts a shorter life expectancy and vegetarians miss fewer flights. * Five reasons why organizations predict death -- including one health insurance company. * How U.S. Bank and Obama for America calculated -- and Hillary for America 2016 plans to calculate -- the way to most strongly persuade each individual. * Why the NSA wants all your data: machine learning supercomputers to fight terrorism. * How IBM's Watson computer used predictive modeling to answer questions and beat the human champs on TV's Jeopardy! * How companies ascertain untold, private truths -- how Target figures out you're pregnant and Hewlett-Packard deduces you're about to quit your job. * How judges and parole boards rely on crime-predicting computers to decide how long convicts remain in prison. * 182 examples from Airbnb, the BBC, Citibank, ConEd, Facebook, Ford, Google, the IRS, LinkedIn, Match.com, MTV, Netflix, PayPal, Pfizer, Spotify, Uber, UPS, Wikipedia, and more. How does predictive analytics work? This jam-packed book satisfies by demystifying the intriguing science under the hood. For future hands-on practitioners pursuing a career in the field, it sets a strong foundation, delivers the prerequisite knowledge, and whets your appetite for more. A truly omnipresent science, predictive analytics constantly affects our daily lives. Whether you are a consumer of it -- or consumed by it -- get a handle on the power of Predictive Analytics.

Rambler, Vol. 4 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Rambler, Vol. 4: Seu Vetus Est Verum Diligo Sive Novum Men and nations that believe in a supreme moral Ruler of the world hold this distinction in reverence, and do not think it allowable to transgress moral principles for the acquisition of any end, however tempting, nor to do evil that good may come. They may transgress this law often enough, but they will never maintain that they are right in transgressing it. But men who have no faith in a moral Governor of the world, and the schools of anarchy, democracy, or Cćsarism which they found, hold the distinction to be not only worthless, but false, foolish, and mischievous. They hold it to be a mere superstition to be scrupulous about the means when the utility of the object aimed at is once acknowledged; and they unblushingly avow the "sovereignty of the end" to be the only pole-star of their compass. This is the motto of the revolution; the principles of revolutionary Cćsarism are precisely the same, though they are expressed differently. Napoleon at St. Helena contrasted his empire with the old Christian monarchies of Europe: "They never suspected that my monarchy was essentially different from theirs. Mine was altogether in the sphere of facts, theirs altogether in that of right; theirs was founded upon habit, mine disregarded it; mine marched with the genius of the age, theirs hauled upon the ropes to hold it back." The imperialism of Napoleon III. has gone a step further; it raises facts not only above right, but above reason also; and not only is blame rendered nugatory, but the most convincing arguments collapse when they are tried by the new touchstone, the "logic of facts." The moral and mental civilisation which nearly two thousand years of Christianity have conquered for Europe is in danger; and both reason and right are now invited to bow their heads before the golden calf of brute force or of accident. Not that Christians question tho "sovereignty of the end" when the expression is only used to remind them that they must suffer with patience and resignation, if not with joy, whatever God ordains or permits. But the end is only sovereign to them after it has passed into the sphere of facts. They recognise that "whatever is is right," but do not thereby acknowledge that every body is right in doing whatever ho does.

Your Bird Friends and How to Win Them (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Your Bird Friends and How to Win Them I Love Birds - that is the reason for this little book, and everything here set down is explained by that - I love the birds. Birds have made my life happier, and I want to exert the same inspiring influence on others as they have on me. Make friends with our native birds - that is my message. The birds richly repay you for the trouble you take in attracting them and looking out for their interests. In this booklet I am going to tell you how to attract and win birds so that the same families will return to you every year. I have done this at my former home in Evanston, a suburb of Chicago, at my farm in Michigan, at my winter home on the Isle of Pines, and at my beautiful home, Bird Lodge, here at Kankakee, which is just fifty miles south of Chicago, on the banks of the Kankakee River. Many who have only a little patch of city garden have induced song birds to live with them by putting up Dodson Bird Houses. This is a greater achievement than helping the rich men who have many acres. The blessed little birds make no distinction between rich and poor. No Place Too Small The illustration above shows how many bird houses can be put in a small space, and yet be occupied by many varieties of birds. In the fifty feet square, shown in this illustration, there lived in peaceful contentment families of the Wren, Bluebird, Great Crested Ply Catcher, Tree Swallow, Oriole, and a large colony of Purple Martins. The building of bird nouses has been a hobby of mine for many years, and never has been run solely for profit. I think you will agree with me that in the end, it is a great work for good. My own work is in financial affairs and yet there is no success in my life that I value higher than my success as an architect for birds. I tell you this because I want you, as you read my talks about bird houses, to realize that my first interest is always for the birds and bird-loving yrs Dodson and men and women, not merely to sell my own devices.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Ornithologists and Oologists Semi-Annual, 1889, Vol. 1 The curved blow pipe is the most convenient. Glass ones are not to be thought of, from their liability to break. I have used a curved brass blow-pipe, six inches in length, for several years and it is still as good as new. The original cost, was, I think, 20 cts. and I've prepared about 1500 eggs with it. Other articles that are needed are an embryo hook and a small pair of scissors. With such an outfit, anyone can prepare eggs (the tools necessary for preserving birds will be given further on.) Various ways are recommended for draining or drying the eggs after blowing, such as laying them, hole downward, on a bed of sand, cotton batting, blotting paper, etc. I'll tell you of the "dryer" that I use and how to make it. Take a piece of card-board of suitable size, (mine is 12-18 inches) draw lines across, lengthwise, 1-2 an inch apart: now draw another set of lines, the same distance apart and at right angles to the first lines. Where the lines intersect punch holes with a .32 calibre wad-cutter. Mount this perforated card board on a wooden frame, stretching it tight, (a few strips of wood nailed to the frame under the card-board will keep it from sagging) tack sides to the frame, projecting about two inches above the card-board bottom, all round, and you have what appears to be a shallow box with a perforated bottom. The eggs are placed in this form, hole downward; and as the hole in the egg is thus placed in the hole that has been punched in the card-board, a free circulation of air is insured, all around and in the egg, drying it in the shortest time; and there will be no cotton, sand or anything else, sticking around the edges of the hole. Having indicated the tools necessary, a few hints about the fieldwork part of collecting comes next; and here I wish to warn the young collector against being of a too greedy disposition and "bagging" everything he finds. Of many species he will find hundreds of eggs, (that is in a region where bird-life is plenty) and in cases of this kind he can take for his own collection as many eggs as desirable to show the variations, and a few for exchange. He can always have his choice here and take only fresh eggs, letting the others alone. I condemn the practice of taking only half the eggs in a nest and leaving the rest. Nine times out of ten the bird will desert the nest. Better take all out of one nest and pass the next one. The bird that has been despoiled of its eggs will go elsewhere and build again.

Methods of Obtaining Success (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Written by Doctor Julia Seton Methods of Obtaining Success tackles the intentionally broad topic of achieving success. Seton was a prolific author of motivational and self-help books, publishing a series of books on topics such as marriage, money matter, and how to achieve health and happiness. The book outlines the four "planes of expression" through which it is argued all humans express themselves. These planes are body, mind, soul, and spirit. This concept of planes and creating unity between them forms the crux of Seton's guidelines for obtaining success. Essentially, man must live a balanced life in order to be successful. It should be noted that the author does rely on religious teachings regularly in Methods of Obtaining Success. Seton states, "Jesus said, "All that my Father hath is mine," but he also taught that this was only true when man became a good steward for his Father's supply." Thus, it is argued that living a spiritual life in adherence to the words of The Bible is an important aspect of obtaining success. Clearly, this argument will not appeal to all readers. Methods of Obtaining Success can be an important read for those seeking a self-help book, and who are also followers of, or at least open to learning about, a Christian religion. Seton's words are definitive yet encouraging, and her voice may guide some on a path to achieving successes. However, the reliance on spirituality and religion may raise a red flag for some readers. With all of the motivational texts available today, there are certainly better options for individuals who are not interested in teachings reliant on religion and the words of The Bible.

Excerpt from Zoological Mythology, Vol. 1 of 2: The Legends of Animals It is not without some little anxiety and trepidation that I, for the first time in my career as a student, venture to address myself to a foreign public, and clothe my ideas in a foreign tongue; nor is it without considerable diffidence in my own powers that I have chosen to do so on a subject which, however interesting it is on account of its novelty and its historical significance, has brought me face to face with difficulties, and a range of scholarship and speculation, which, as in the presence of a foolhardy enterprise, have more than once given me pause. If, however, notwithstanding these incessant fears of mine, and the caution they so naturally inspire, I have, from other considerations, suffered myself to be hurried away into statements which may appear crude or inconclusive, I cast myself at the outset on the kindness of my readers, and respectfully bespeak their indulgent regards.

Excerpt from Through the Fourth Wall All these essays - if so ambitious a word may be applied to writings so slight - were contributed in the first instance to the Daily Telegraph. They are printed here without any alterations except such as seemed inevitable in transferring them from the files of a newspaper to the more permanent form of a bound volume. Writings about the theatre are in their nature ephemeral. Plays pass and are gone; players make triumphs, disappear, and are too often forgotten. These writings of mine cover two years of dramatic criticism; and even in that short space there has been time to forget. When I began to read over the proofs of this book, I was amazed to find how faint had grown my memories of emotions which at their inception had been strong enough to make me want to record them. But as I read, the defaced impressions in my brain grew clearer, the colours brightened, and I recaptured for a moment the forgotten feelings of pleasure or disappointment, delight or distaste, which had been mine while the ink was still wet on the paper. It is in the hope that some other lovers of the theatre may find in these pages something of the same experience that I publish them now.

Excerpt from Tales From Washington Irving's Traveller Worthy and Dear Reader! - Hast thou ever been waylaid in the midst of a pleasant tour by some treacherous malady: thy heels tripped up, and thou left to count the tedious minutes as they passed, in the solitude of an inn-chamber? If thou hast, thou wilt be able to pity me. Behold me, interrupted in the course of my journeying up the fair banks of the Rhine, and laid up by indisposition in this old frontier town of Mentz. I have worn out every source of amusement. I know the sound of every clock that strikes, and bell that rings, in the place. I know to a second when to listen for the first tap of the Prussian drum, as it summons the garrison to parade, or at what hour to expect the distant sound of the Austrian military band. All these have grown wearisome to me; and even the well-known step of my doctor, as he slowly paces the corridor, with healing in the creak of his shoes, no longer affords an agreeable interruption to the monotony of my apartment. For a time I attempted to beguile the weary hours by studying German under the tuition of mine host's pretty little daughter, Katrine; but I soon found even German had not power to charm a languid ear, and that the conjugating of ich liebe might be powerless, however rosy the lips which uttered it. I tried to read, but my mind would not fix itself. I turned over volume after volume, but threw them by with distaste: "Well, then," said I at length, in despair, "if I cannot read a book, I will write one."

Pierre Herme is universally acknowledged as the king of French pastry with shops in Tokyo, Paris and London. He is the best, and has even been described as a couturier of pastry. This is a man at the top of his art and there is no question his macarons are in a league of its own. Macarons are the aristocrats of pastry; these brightly coloured, mini meringues, daintily sandwiched together with gooey fillings, have become a holy grail for cookery fanatics and there are even food blogs dedicated to them. Now for the first time, all the macaron recipes from this most celebrated French patissier are published in English. The French language edition has been one of the most sought after cookbooks of recent years. And just like Pierre Herme's famous macarons, it would be difficult for any macaron book to surpass this one. There are 200 pages of recipes and beautiful food photography, and because making macarons is mostly about technique, rather than just a standard recipe, readers will appreciate the 32-step-by-step photo-illustrated instructions for making shells and fillings. All the classics are here like dark chocolate, praline, coffee, and pistachio, but others feature the more unusual macarons that Herme is justly famous for: Isfahan is one, with lychee, rose and raspberry, Arabesque with apricot and pistachio, Satine with passion fruit, orange and cream cheese, Mandarin and pink pepper, black truffles, balsamic vinegar as well as a bright-green macaron filled with fresh mint. Anyone interested in making macarons will find Pierre Herme's the best book in print.

Excerpt from Life of Richard Trevithick, Vol. 2: With an Account of His Inventions "About 1804 Captain Trevithick put up in Dolcoath Mine a stone-crushing mill, having large cast-iron rollers, for breaking into small pieces the large stones of ore; it was spoken of as the first ever used for such a purpose; the same form of crusher is still used in the mines. It caused a great saving compared with breaking by a hand hammer." "I saw at the Weith Mine in 1805 a portable high-pressure engine, made by Captain Trevithick. "It was called a puffer; the cylinder was in the boiler; the steam about 30 lbs. on the inch above the atmosphere. A wooden shed sheltered the engine and man. "The facility of manufacture and cheapness of those engines caused them to be much used in the mines, and also elsewhere." Mrs. Trevithick, about the time we are speaking of, accompanied her husband through one of the Staffordshire china manufactories. Trevithick said to the manufacturer, "You would grind your clay much better by using my cast-iron rolls and high-pressure steam-engine." The manufacturer begged him to accept a set of china. Mrs. Trevithick was disappointed at hearing her husband say "No! I have only told you what was passing in my mind."

Elementary Meteorology (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Elementary Meteorology Those who are already acquainted with the science of meteorology will need no words of mine to show that the greatest share of whatever value this book may contain comes from my having studied and followed the work of the late Professor William Ferrel of Washington. To his remarkable insight and ingenious analysis we owe the best part of the understanding of general atmospheric processes that has yet been reached. Those who here first come to know something of the science of the atmosphere, and who are perhaps thus brought to desire further acquaintance with it, should not fail to study Ferrel's Popular Treatise on the Winds, in which his more mathematical essays are reduced to a simpler form. Yet after Ferrel, an almost equal indebtedness must be acknowledged to Professor Julius Hann of Vienna, from whose broad and accurate studies I have found assistance at every turn. His Klimatologie, the standard work of the kind, and his numerous special articles, have furnished me with much information as well as with many well-defined examples of meteorological conditions and processes. The names of many other meteorologists to whom acknowledgment is due come to mind while revising the pages of this book, which presents the condensed results of my reading, observing and teaching during the last fifteen years. Some of these names are mentioned on the appropriate pages, but in general I have not attempted to make explicit reference to the sources of information that have been consulted, believing that in a school book, as this is primarily intended to be, such references are not of much value, especially as they too commonly lead to sources of information inaccessible in school libraries. A personal acknowledgment must, however, be made here to Mr. H. H. Clayton, of Blue Hill Observatory, for assistance in connection with the chapter on clouds; to Mr. Alexander McAdie, of the Weather Bureau in Washington, for his advice in the sections on atmospheric electricity; and to Mr. R. DeC. Ward, successor of Professor Harrington as editor of the American Meteorological Journal, for many suggestions in connection with the teaching of meteorology, in which he has for some years been associated with me in Harvard College.

Excerpt from Amir Khan, and Other Poems: The Remains of Lucretia Maria Davidson In the autumn of 1827, while at Albany, a friend of mine brought to my lodgings a number of volumes of manuscripts, in poetry and prose, which he informed me were the productions of a little girl, a protegé of his, by whose early death, before she had attained the age of seventeen years, the fondest expectations of a distinguished maturity were suddenly blasted. Considering the youth of the fair authoress, I had prepared myself, before I opened the volumes, to make many abatements of the praises which were lavished upon her. I was prepared to allow much for the natural blindness of that affection for a beautiful child, which leads us unconsciously to overlook its faults; and much to that enthusiasm which often exaggerates a little uncommon sprightliness and intelligence, into extraordinary genius, and anticipates for its possessor a brilliant career, but seldom realized. But with all the abatement thus made, I found, from the emotions produced, while hastily reading her productions, that I was perusing the works of a child of genuine poetic feeling; and the exclamation would often involuntarily escape me, "Can this be the work of a girl of fourteen?" I must not, however, forestall the judgment of the reader. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
