V srpnu 2015 sázkové kanceláře stanovily kurz 5000 : 1, že Leicester vyhraje Premier League – bylo to stejně nepravděpodobné jako to, že někdo potká živého Elvise Presleyho.
Dne 2. května 2016 se nemožné stalo skutkem: Leicester dobyl titul mistra Anglie a ve městě i širokém okolí propukly nadšené oslavy.
Události této pozoruhodné sezony můžete prožívat podle toho, jak je líčí Rob Tanner, hlavní fotbalový dopisovatel listu Leicester Mercury. Od těsné záchrany na jaře 2015 přes Ulloův vítězný gól proti Norwichi a Vardyův úžasný volej proti Liverpoolu až po závěrečné utkání na stadionu Stamford Bridge.
Tanner se znalostí prostředí podrobně popisuje klíčové zápasy, rozhodující momenty a heroické výkony, které měly za výsledek senzační triumf Leicesteru City v nejsledovanější klubové fotbalové soutěži na světě. Zároveň přibližuje jednotlivé hráče, kteří se pod geniálním vedením italského trenéra Claudia Ranieriho stali nejnepravděpodobnějšími mistry v dějinách kopané.
The first part of The Great Tribulation is a verse-by-verse commentary on Matthew 24 written in readable, nontechnical style. The second part of the book contains nine articles related to the second coming of Christ and end-time events.
The Great Tribulation provides insight on these questions: What does Matthew 24 really teach? Will Christ’s coming be in two stages? Does Daniel teach that there will be a seven-year tribulation? Who is the antichrist, and will he appear in a rebuilt temple? What is the “abomination of desolation”? Was the kingdom of God postponed? Will there be a thousand-year period called the millennium? Will some be taken and others left behind? What is the generation that Christ spoke of that is going to see it all?

La pequeña capilla San Severo, en Nápoles, es todavía, a día de hoy, una de las grandes desconocidas del sur de Italia y constituye un hito por su espectacular interior, que alberga una colección de estatuas de mármol que dejan sin aliento a todos los que tienen el privilegio de observarlas...
Perteneciente a la prestigiosa familia Di Sangro, la bóveda de la capilla sufre un derrumbe parcial y el gran mecenas Álvaro de Fontanarosa, hombre de inmensa fortuna, encarga su reparación a Mauro Beltrán, un joven restaurador español que descubre los inquietantes rumores en torno a ciertos extraños hechos que se han venido produciendo en aquel lugar...
Mauro entabla una relación dependiente con su mecenas, en la que surge un tercer eslabón, Alberto Miralles. Los tres conformarán un curioso triángulo en el que las aristas permanecen siempre redondeadas; una partida de ajedrez en la que ninguna pieza se coloca en la situación que le corresponde y en la que todos los movimientos esconden motivaciones ocultas.
Los silencios del mármol es una guía de viajes, un recetario culinario, un libro de arte, un tratado de arquitectura y de filosofía, una lección de historia, una novela negra en arriesgada complicidad con el marqués de Sade, un manual de lingüística, un breviario de alquimia, un totum no revolutum que nos transporta a una Italia que nos es tan cercana y a la vez tan desconocida, a través de unos personajes que toman forma con cada salto de página. Un recorrido por la sensibilidad artística desvela los recovecos más oscuros del ser humano, una compilación de mensajes del pasado que se filtran en el presente a través del frío mármol de las estatuas de San Severo.
Digital watermarking is a key ingredient to copyright protection. It provides a solution to illegal copying of digital material and has many other useful applications such as broadcast monitoring and the recording of electronic transactions. Now, for the first time, there is a book that focuses exclusively on this exciting technology. Digital Watermarking covers the crucial research findings in the field: it explains the principles underlying digital watermarking technologies, describes the requirements that have given rise to them, and discusses the diverse ends to which these technologies are being applied. As a result, additional groundwork is laid for future developments in this field, helping the reader understand and anticipate new approaches and applications.
* Emphasizes the underlying watermarking principles that are relevant for all media: images, video, and audio.
* Discusses a wide variety of applications, theoretical principles, detection and embedding concepts and the key properties of digital watermarks--robustness, fidelity, data payload, and security
* Examines copyright protection and many other applications, including broadcast monitoring, transaction tracking, authentication, copy control, and device control.
* Presents a series of detailed examples called "Investigations" that illustrate key watermarking concepts and practices.
* Includes an appendix in the book and on the web containing the source code for the examples.
* Includes a comprehensive glossary of watermarking terminology
The 11 revised full papers, 3 short paper and one invited talk presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 27 initial submissions. The papers are trying to bridge the gap between ontology engineering practices and software engineering with the aim of describing reuse methods employed throughout the ontology development cycle; modeling/terminological decisions, alignment and comparison between ontologies, how ontologies are stored, versioned, distributed and consumed over the Web.

This monograph is the first to survey progress in realistic simulation in a strongly eddying regime made possible by recent increases in computational capability. Its contributors comprise the leading researchers in this important and constantly evolving field.
Divided into three partsOceanographic Processes and Regimes: Fundamental Questions Ocean Dynamics and State: From Regional to Global Scale, and Modeling at the Mesoscale: State of the Art and Future Directions
The volume details important advances in physical oceanography based on eddy resolving ocean modeling. It captures the state of the art and discusses issues that ocean modelers must consider in order to effectively contribute to advancing current knowledge, from subtleties of the underlying fluid dynamical equations to meaningful comparison with oceanographic observations and leading-edge model development. It summarizes many of the important results which have emerged from ocean modeling in an eddying regime, for those interested broadly in the physical science. More technical topics are intended to address the concerns of those actively working in the field.

Iodinated intravascular X-ray contrast agents, especially the more recently developed non-ionic agents, continue therefore to play a pivotal role in clinical imaging.
These succinct and authoritative articles, originally appearing in the journal Advances in X-ray Contrast, range sufficiently widely for their compilation in this volume to be considered a mini-textbook on the water-soluble iodinated X-ray contrast agents and their applications. Each is written by an acknowledged and experienced expert in the field. They usefully cover the developmental history of the agents; defined risk factors, approaches to prophylaxis and, ultimately, of the treatment of adverse reactions; the interesting subject of supposed delayed reactions to contrast agents; the important organ-specific toxicities, cardiac toxicity, neurotoxicity and nephrotoxicity and high-dose toxicity as encountered in complex procedures; the sometimes special circumstances and occasional extreme conditions to which contrast agents may be exposed in Interventional Radiology; the special, in several ways, case of paediatric radiology; the controversial subject of thromboembolic phenomena in clinical angiography; and the precise role of contrast agents. As regards the practicalities of contrast administration regimes and imaging protocols it is really only in the area of CT that there is debate and controversy, and articles are included which cover CT of the liver, spleen and pancreas, and protocols for the new spiral/helical technology and even for the much less widely available electron-beam CT technology visualization. Pulmonary embolus diagnosis and protocols for contrast administration with this technology are also discussed.
