Lovell, Mary S.: Straight on Till Morning. The Biography of Beryl Markham. Mit einem Vorwort der Verfasserin. Mit Anmerkungen, Auswahlbiografie und Register. Preface. With bibliography and index. Deutscher Titel: Nicht übersetzt. London, Hutchinson Ltd., 1987. ISBN: 0091705800
Sehr guter Zustand. Frisches Exemplar. Wie ungelesen. Aus der Bibliothek der Gräfin Ledebur. - Beryl Markham (26 October 1902 - 3 August 1986) was a British-born Kenyan aviatrix, adventurer, and racehorse trainer. During the pioneer days of aviation, she became the first person to fly solo across the Atlantic from east to west. She is now primarily remembered as the author of the memoir West with the Night. Biography: Beryl Markham was born Beryl Clutterbuck on October 26, 1902, in the village of Ashwell, in the county of Rutland, England, the daughter of Charles and Clara Clutterbuck. When she was four years old, her father moved the family to Kenya, which was then British East Africa, purchasing a farm in Njoro near the Great Rift Valley. Although her mother disliked the isolation and promptly returned to England, Beryl stayed in Kenya with her father, where she spent an adventurous childhood learning, playing and hunting with the natives. On her family's farm, she developed a knowledge of, and love for horses. As a young adult, she became the first licensed female horse trainer in Kenya. Impetuous, single-minded and beautiful, Markham was a noted non-conformist, even in a colony known for its colourful eccentrics. She married three times, but accounts of her life indicate that she was not a faithful spouse. Her unconcealed 1929 affair with the Duke of Gloucester, the son of George V, led her husband's brother, Sir Charles Markham, to threaten the British Royal Family with naming the prince in an embarrassing divorce suit. The Windsors promptly cut the romance short; Beryl was bought off with a capital trust of 15,000 from the Duke's own funds, from which she drew a modest annuity for the rest of her life. She befriended the Danish writer Karen Blixen during the years that Blixen was managing her family's coffee farm in the Ngong hills outside Nairobi. (In the film rendering of Blixen's memoir, Out of Africa, Markham is represented by an outspoken, horse-riding tomboy named Felicity.) When Blixen's romantic connection with the hunter and pilot Denys Finch Hatton was winding down, Markham started an affair with him herself. He invited her to tour game lands on what turned out to be his fatal flight, but Markham declined because of a premonition from her flight instructor, Tom Campbell Black. Sara Wheeler, in her biography of Finch Hatton, notes that she believes stories that Markham was pregnant by him at the time of his crash. Largely inspired by the British pilot Tom Campbell Black, with whom she had a long-term affair, she took up flying. She worked for some time as a bush pilot, spotting game animals from the air and signaling their locations to safaris on the ground. She also mingled with the notorious Happy Valley set, but was never a full-fledged "member" of the decadent crowd. .... Authorship controversy: Questions were raised over time as to whether Markham was the real, or sole, author of West with the Night, not least because Markham never repeated her accomplishment with a second book of similar length, scope or beauty. The writing style has been linked with various writings by a contemporary writer of the time, Thomas Baker, who was also rumored to be her lover. Her publishing accomplishments for the rest of her life were limited to a handful of short stories. According to the 1993 biography, The Lives of Beryl Markham, by Errol Trzebinski, the book's real author was her third husband, the ghost writer and journalist Raoul Schumacher. ... But in her biography of Markham, Straight On Till Morning, author Mary S. Lovell, who visited Markham in Nairobi and interviewed her extensively shortly before Markham's death, disputes the claim that Schumacher made substantive contributions to West with the Night. From her research, Lovell concluded that Markham was the sole author, although Schumacher did edit the manuscript; instead, Lovell credits Antoine de Saint Exupery, another of Markham's lovers, with being the inspiration behind Markham's clear, elegant language and storytelling style. The International Astronomical Union has named the impact crater Markham on the planet Venus after her. ... Aus: wikipedia-Beryl_Markham , ISBN-13: 9780091705800

Dijk, Nico M. van/Boucherie, Richard J. Queueing Networks A Fundamental Approach, SPRINGER, BERLIN, 120 ISBN: 1441964711
pan This handbook aims to highlight fundamental, methodological and computational aspects of networks of queues to provide insights and to unify results that can be applied in a more general manner. span /span The handbook is organized into five parts: /span /p p span /p p span Part 1 considers exact analytical results such as of product form type /span span . Topics include /span span /span span characterization of product forms by physical balance concepts and simple traffic flow equations, /span span /span span classes of service and queue disciplines that allow a product form, /span span /span span a unified description of product forms for discrete time queueing networks, /span span /span span insights for insensitivity, and aggregation and decomposition results that allow sub networks to be aggregated into single nodes to reduce computational burden. /span /p p span /p p span Part 2 looks at monotonicity and comparison results such as for computational simplification by either of two approaches: /span span stochastic monotonicity and ordering results based on the ordering of the process generators, and comparison results and explicit error bounds based on an underlying Markov reward structure leading to ordering of expectations of performance measures. /span /p p span /p p span Part 3 presents diffusion and fluid results.

New Hardcover . Holy Quran, the divine book is a great treasure of knowledge and wisdom. It is the original source. This Holy book is the original source of inspiration for the whole mankind. Holy Quran stands for peace-peace for all, not for the Muslims, alone. In fact, Holy Quran, when interpreted, incorporated in its fold, safety and security for the whole mankind. Holy Quran, the divine scripture addresses all human beings, not only the Muslims. Prophet of Islam, Hadrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) is known as the benefactor of mankind. Thus, Islam's message is for the whole universe and Allah (god) is the Lord of all the worlds. Islam is universal in its nature, essence, belief, philosophy, ideology, approach and practice. Truly speaking, Holy Quran addresses all the human beings and not merely Muslims. Islam- despite being the most progressive, logical and scientific religion, on this planet-is also the most misunderstood religion. This confusion about Islam has recently increased due to certain eventual reasons. However, recently, Islam has attracted the minds of people towards it and resulted into a deep interest in knowing Islam. More and more people want to know about Islam, the religion, which has once again stirred the world community. Holy Quran, however, advocates non-violence, peace and fraternity. Holy Quran, from the very first day has raised the banner of reasoning and enlightenment, on the one hand and humanity, equality and fundamental rights on the other. The need of the hour is to correct the situation and to eradicate this feeling and tendency, prevailing all over and to depict the true picture of Islam. Hence, this bold and courageous endeavour, to bind the whole world of Holy Quran in the form of a series, spanning over dozens of books and titled as Encyclopaedia of Quranic Studies. This study also explores the relevance of Holy Quran in the contemporary world. One may believe it or not, today Islam is the fastest developing religion, which is spreading-through voluntary preaching and invitation-in the whole world and in West, including USA at a faster pace, than ever. Over the past few years, the popularity of Holy Quran and other authentic Islamic books has touched new heights. Islam is perhaps seen as the last bastion of spirituality, morality, tradition and religious values, leading to real salvation. For a comprehensive study of Holy Quran, one intelligent reader requires exclusive, authentic and exhaustive books to satisfy their urge, answer their quest and convince them on all counts. This voluminous study aimed at the same goal. These books are in fact a grand treasure of knowledge and awareness about Holy Quran and as well as a window, leading to Quaranic wisdom. Further, it ascertains the honourable status of Holy Quran as a perfect great book, relevant for all times. The honest intention of the Editors and compilers is focused on projecting Holy Quran in totality and in nutshell-bringing the whole world of Quranic Wisdom in the fold of one voluminous book. Peculiarly, every volume of this vast study is a comprehensive book in itself and covers a particular angle or dimension of Holy Quran. Too make it straight, all the volumes make one exhaustive huge book on one hand and each volu8me is a separate book on the other. Hopefully, this research-based work would fill the vacuum for a book of knowledge on Holy Quran and prove to be a source of information and reference for all scholars, researchers and general readers, coming from amongst the Muslims, Non-Muslims, orientalists and of course those Western scholars and researchers, who may require a good source in an international language.
