RRP $16.99

A Nile "Cruise" is nothing like a traditional cruise; think Mississippi-style riverboat and forget all your "Love Boat" conceptions. There are: no casinos, zip lines, movie theaters, or lavish entertainment. Cruise ships slowly putt-putt down the Nile River covering perhaps 300 kilometers/200 miles on the longest river in the world that stretches 4,000 miles from East Africa to the Mediterranean. Should you take one? This Guide will give information, options, what to expect and what to miss ( not everything is perfect). You'll read about iconic sights typically seen on shore, Sheila's favorites, omit in depth facts easily found on the Internet and related by Egyptologist guides, different options, and learn how to navigate the Cairo airport. Let Travels With Sheila teach you how to Travel the World on a Budget, and most importantly, ease your fears about languages, currencies, personal safety and staying healthy. Follow her advice to avoid making mistakes she learned the hard way which included food poisoning on Greek cruise. (Don't EVER eat buffet food that has been sitting on deck, in the sun!) HERE'S SOME OF THE INFORMATION YOU'LL FIND INSIDE... - Important Tips for Traveling in Egypt. - What You Need to Know About Nile Cruises. - Where Should You Begin Your Nile Cruise - Aswan or Luxor. - How to Choose Optional Shore Excursions. Now, Travels With Sheila tells it like it is with personalized, up-to-date information, and photographs to make the most of your Nile Cruise. Turmoil in Egypt has settled down and now is the time to visit. Don't wait another second to see Egypt's unimaginable sights with your own eyes...


Beautiful And The Time Travelers

RRP $18.99

Samuel Carvelus never came home from the logging mill that evening. The rushing river claimed him as its own. His wife Megan and nine year old daughter Shiloh received word there was an accident; Samuel was killed saving the life of Jacob Turner, an eighteen year old boy just starting out in the logging business. No man could have done what Samuel did in saving this young life. He filled his lungs with air, dived into the rushing river, and struggled to dodge the floating timbers. Beneath the timbers he searched savagely for Jacob's body. Numbed by the cold raging river, the fierceness of the current thrust his body forward; his lungs began to crave for air, but dare not surface. He spotted the boy's body dangling from a jagged rock like a rag doll. He aligned himself and allowed the river to force his body toward the boy just as Jacob's shirt tore loose from the rock, Samuel grabbed hold of his arm; he scanned the surface for a break from the rushing logs. Daylight appeared between the rock and the banks. He pushed upward to the surface hanging tight to Jacob's limp body. He shoved the boy up on the embankment, four men hoisted the boy to safety, but it was too late for Samuel, the swiftness of the logs slammed into his back crushing his body while the raging current sucked him under.

Engineering Safe And Secure Cyber-physical Systems 2016

RRP $271.99

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

This book introduces the concept of holistic design and development of cyber physical systems to achieve their safe and secure operation.  It shows that by following the standards for embedded system's safety and using appropriate hardware and software components inherently safe system's architectures can be devised and certified. While the standards already enable testing and certification of inherently safe and sound hardware, this is still not the case with software. The book demonstrates that Specification PEARL(SPEARL) addresses this issue and proposes appropriate solutions from the viewpoints of software engineering as well as concrete program components. By doing so it reduces the complexity of cyber physical systems design in an innovative way.

Three ultimate goals are being followed in the course of defining this new PEARL standard, namely:

1. simplicity over complexity,

2. inherent real-time ability, and

3. conformity to safety integrity and security capability levels.
