As for his family and friends, he fears he’ll never see them again. He especially misses Chem and Yosh, his co-conspirators in fooling the Great Processor. What made them think they could change society’s rigid hierarchy? Ready to give up, Linus must somehow regain hope and the will to fight for his freedom. From the Hardcover edition.

The Molecular Vision Of Life

This fascinating study examines the rise of American molecular biology to disciplinary dominance, focusing on the period between 1930 and the elucidation of DNA structure in the mid 1950s. Research undertaken during this period, with its focus on genetic structure and function, endowed scientists with then unprecedented power over life. By viewing the new biology as both a scientific and cultural enterprise, Lily E. Kay shows that the growth of molecular biology was a result of systematic efforts by key scientists and their sponsors to direct the development of biological research toward a shared vision of science and society. She analyzes the motivations and mechanisms empowering this vision by focusing on two key institutions: Caltech and its sponsor, the Rockefeller Foundation. Her study explores a number of vital, sometimes controversial topics, among them the role of private power centers in shaping scientific agenda, and the political dimensions of "pure" research. It also advances a sobering argument: the cognitive and social groundwork for genetic engineering and human genome projects was laid by the American architects of molecular biology during these early decades of the project. This book will be of interest to molecular biologists, historians, sociologists, and the general reader alike.

Introduction To Programming Using Processing Second Edition

Written in an informal, conversational, and humorous style, the second edition of Introduction to Programming Using Processing makes learning programming a fun experience. The freely-available Processing language is ideal for a first course in programming. The simple-to-access graphics and multimedia capabilities of the language let students develop eye-catching, animated programs, instead of traditional programs that print text to the console. The text takes a ""classes-later"" approach, focusing on basics, using objects, selection, iteration, topdown design, and arrays, before writing classes. Every example is presented in the context of the RADIS (Requirements / Analyze / Design / Implement / Support) framework, with considerable attention paid to design. Other positive habits, like good commenting practice and coding style, are emphasized as well.
