The song White Christmas is undoubtedly the most famous and popular of all the Christmas songs. Berlin wrote the song in early 1940, and it was introduced by Bing Crosby in the 1942 musical ´Holiday Inn´. Crosby had to re-record the song in 1947 because the orignal tapes of 1942 had literally worn out! This 1947 single of White Christmas is recognized as the best-selling single in any music category and Crosby´s recording has sold millions of additional copies as part of numerous albums. The 2007 Guinness Book of Records lists Crosby´s recording as the biggest selling single of all time with an estimated 50 million copies sold thus making it the best selling record in history!

Adiabatic Quantum Computation and Quantum Annea...
€ 47.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Adiabatic quantum computation (AQC) is an alternative to the better-known gate model of quantum computation. The two models are polynomially equivalent, but otherwise quite dissimilar: one property that distinguishes AQC from the gate model is its analog nature. Quantum annealing (QA) describes a type of heuristic search algorithm that can be implemented to run in the ``native instruction set´´ of an AQC platform. D-Wave Systems Inc. manufactures {quantum annealing processor chips} that exploit quantum properties to realize QA computations in hardware. The chips form the centerpiece of a novel computing platform designed to solve NP-hard optimization problems. Starting with a 16-qubit prototype announced in 2007, the company has launched and sold increasingly larger models: the 128-qubit D-Wave One system was announced in 2010 and the 512-qubit D-Wave Two system arrived on the scene in 2013. A 1,000-qubit model is expected to be available in 2014. This monograph presents an introductory overview of this unusual and rapidly developing approach to computation. We start with a survey of basic principles of quantum computation and what is known about the AQC model and the QA algorithm paradigm. Next we review the D-Wave technology stack and discuss some challenges to building and using quantum computing systems at a commercial scale. The last chapter reviews some experimental efforts to understand the properties and capabilities of these unusual platforms. The discussion throughout is aimed at an audience of computer scientists with little background in quantum computation or in physics.

Maserati Coupé
€ 28.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Maserati Coupé and Spyder are grand tourers produced by Italian automaker Maserati from 2002 to 2007. They have now been replaced by the GranTurismo. The two nameplates refer to the four- seater coupé and two-seater roadster versions, respectively. Both models were based on the 3200 GT, which was sold in Europe, but not in the United States. The Coupé and Spyder are both commonly referred to as the 4200 GT, which is an evolution of the prior model name and a reference to the increase in engine displacement from 3.2 L (3217 cc) to 4.2 L (4244 cc). The Spyder was first unveiled to the public at the 2001 Frankfurt Auto Show with the Coupé´s debut following shortly thereafter at the 2002 Detroit Auto Show. Sales in the United States began in March 2002 for the Spyder and in May for the Coupé. The release of the Spyder heralded Maserati´s return to the North American market after an 11 year hiatus. Almost as soon as it was introduced, the Spyder was selected by Forbes as the Best GT for 2001.

It´s 1998. Varg Veum sits by the hospital bedside of his long-term girlfriend, Karin, whose life-threatening injuries provide a deeply painful reminder of the mistakes he´s made. Investigating the seemingly innocent disappearance of a wind-farm inspector, Varg Veum is thrust into one of the most challenging cases of his career, riddled with conflicts, environmental terrorism, religious fanaticism, unsolved mysteries and dubious business ethics. Then the first body appears - tied to a cross, facing the mouth of the fjord. In a chilling, timeless story of love, revenge and desire - deftly interwoven with contemporary issues, in a stunning plot that will leave you gripped to the final page - We Shall Inherit the Wind shows Staalesen at his most thrilling, thought-provoking best. One of the fathers of Nordic Noir, Gunnar Staalesen was born in Bergen, Norway, in 1947. He made his debut at the age of 22 with Seasons of Innocence, and in 1977 he published the first book in the Varg Veum series. He is the author of over 20 titles, which have been published in 24 countries and sold over four million copies. Twelve film adaptations of his Varg Veum crime novels have appeared since 2007, starring the popular Norwegian actor Trond Espen Seim. Staalesen, who has won three Golden Pistols (including the Prize of Honour), lives in Bergen with his wife. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Colin Mace.

Original Gangster

´´A suspenseful memoir from the real life American gangster, Frank Lucas ´´In his own words, Frank Lucas recounts his life as the former heroin dealer and organized crime boss who ran Harlem during the late 1960s and early 1970s. From being taken under the wing of old time gangster Bumpy Johnson, through one of the most successful drug smuggling operations, to being sentenced to seventy years in prison, ´´Original Gangster ´´is a chilling look at the rise and fall of a modern legacy. Frank Lucas realized that in order to gain the kind of success he craved he would have to break the monopoly that the Italian mafia held in New York. So Frank cut out middlemen and began smuggling heroin into the United States directly from his source in the Golden Triangle by using coffins. Making a million dollars per day selling ´´Blue Magic´´--what was known as the purest heroin on the street--Frank Lucas became one of the most powerful crime lords of his time, while rubbing shoulders with the elite in entertainment, politics, and crime. After his arrest, Federal Judge Sterling Johnson, the special narcotics prosecutor in New York at the time of Lucas´ crimes, called Lucas and his operation ´´one of the most outrageous international dope-smuggling gangs ever, an innovator who got his own connections outside the U.S. and then sold the narcotics himself in the street.´´ This powerful memoir reveals what really happened to the man whose career was dramatized in the 2007 feature film ´´American Gangster, ´´exposing a startling look at the world of organized crime.

Humble by Nature , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 486min

ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 2007, after 20 years of living in London, Kate Humble and her husband, Ludo, decided it was time to leave city life behind them. Three years later, now the owner of a Welsh smallholding, Kate hears that a nearby farm is to be broken up and sold off. Another farm lost; another opportunity for a young farmless farmer gone. Desperate to stop the sale, Kate contacts the council with an alternative plan - to keep the farm working and to run a rural skills and animal husbandry school alongside it. Against all odds, she succeeds. Here, in Humble By Nature, Kate shares with us a highly personal account of her journey from London town house to Welsh farm. Along the way we meet Bertie and Lawrence the donkeys, Myfanwy and Blackberry the pigs, and goats Biscuit and Honey, not forgetting a dog called Badger and his unladylike sidekick, Bella. And we are introduced to the tenant farmers Tim and Sarah, the locals who helped (and some who didn´t), and a whole host of newborn lambs. Full of the warmth and passion for the natural world that makes Kate such a sought after presenter, Humble By Nature is the story of two people prepared to follow their hearts and save a small part of Britain´s farming heritage, whatever the consequences. 1.
