Blazor Revealed: Building Web Applications in .NET
Blazor Revealed: Building Web Applications in .NET
Although this book is somewhat outdated I find it quite useful and I believe it covers a broad range of relevant and modern subjects.

Throughout the book you will build a simple pizza shopping cart.
In the first chapters you will build the shopping basket, menu, and order objects, which is all C# programming (in some places the code gets a little advanced and complex).
The authors also explains how to do user interactions (btn click, validate input text values etc) using blazor (instead of javascript). Furthermore you learn neat blazor functions as how to render blazor code on "page load/On Init/ OnAfterRender".
The book teaches how to create blazor component and use them in the overall application architecture.
You will also learn about dependency injection and how to integrate that with Blazor. Furthermore building microservices are also explained.

All in all I would say that this book is an advanced book, its not for beginners of C# or web programming. It deals with many subjects such as n-layers architecture, dependency injection, micro services, entity framework core, routing in blazor and at last javascript interoperatbility (how to make call javascript method from C# and vice versa).
I believe you will learn much by this book, many modern and relevant areas are covered, sometimes it gets to advanced, but nevertheless still very useful.

I believe that this book is definitely worth the money and time and I can surely recommend it.

Beyond Candlesticks: New Japanese Charting Techniques Revealed (Wiley Finance Book 56)
Steve Nison's Candlestick books are essential reading for any trader and give a great overview of Candlestick trading patterns and how to apply them beyond the very basic "this is a doji: trade it." This book is accessible and easy to read for beginners, who should be able to delve into this and understand the concepts easily without further research / headbanging / frustration.
Elon Musk: What YOU Can Learn from His AMAZING Life (Inspirational books for kids Book 1)
Elon Musk: What YOU Can Learn from His AMAZING Life (Inspirational books for kids Book 1)
I would give it 0 stars if that was an option. This is advertised as a “Biography for Kids.” There is no author or publisher listed. At the back of the book, it says it was printed on May 1, 2018, which is the day I purchased the book. After looking into it more, I found that it is published by CreateSpace (an Amazon company). It does include basic facts about Musk’s life, however it is not written in a professional manner and includes information not suited for children. I have learned my lesson: check the publisher listed in the description of the book before purchasing.

Great story, well-written! It is interesting that Henry Ford's thoughts about people still rings true - what is good for one is good for everyone...The human race as a machine, no one part is less important than any other. Think about that!
A Deeper Love: The Best Of Aretha Franklin
A Deeper Love: The Best Of Aretha Franklin
If you love the most recent output by the Queen of Soul, this is the compilation for you. From 1980 to 1998 Aretha had a solid collection of songs that Arista and Clive Davis helped put together. Songs such as Jump to It, Get It Right, Freeway of Love, Another Night, (the original CD long version, not the edit), Who's Zoomin' Who, and Deeper Love (a remake of the C & C Music Factory's club hit) are all here. What stands out though are the songs that are not here namely, her number one song with George Michael, I Knew You Were Waiting for Me, the hit with the Eurythmics, Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves and the catchy duet with Whitney Houston, It Isn't It Wasn't It Ain't Ever Gonna Be, written by Diane Warren and Albert Hammond. I guess Sony/BMG didn't want to cut into the sales of the Duets CD put out 3 or 4 years ago called, Jewels in the Crown. Gladly, the beautiful and haunting duet with Michael McDonald Ever Changing Times is included here and it remains one of my favorite songs. The original version by Siedah Garrett from the film Baby Boom is rare to find so this Burt Bacharach composition is wonderful to hear here. The sound quality is a great improvement over the Greatest Hits 1980-1994 which sounded dull and flat. Also this is a UK import and very reasonably priced especially for 2 CD's. Thanks to Sony/BMG in the UK for issuing this as a tribute to the Queen of Soul. It would be great to see and expanded or deluxe edition of the CD Freeway of Love with 12" mixes and any b-sides like the record label BBR is issuing in the UK. After all the Queen of Soul deserves it.

Adventures of Thunderstorm: Return of Thor
Adventures of Thunderstorm: Return of Thor
There are bad movies(twilight, snakes on a plane, the last air bender) and there are good movies(the dark knight, dances with wolves, return of the king) and good bad movies( troll 2, naked gun, evil dead, gremlins) and then there's bad horrible , abominations that offend every sense of humanity, logic, emotion, and lighting. Adventures of thunderstorm: the return of Thor is one of them.
This movie might be the worst movie on Netflix instant. And I've seen a lot of garbage on Netflix instant and the only movies as bad as this are battle New York day 2 and the black knight returns. I'm sure there's more on there I'm just afraid to look.
The very beginning of this pile will have pulling your hair out as it forces you to read a novel of worthless information and backstory that is utterly unnecessary mainly because you figure all that garbage out throughout the film. It was a waste.
It cuts ton Asgaurd the realm of the Norse gods. It's the saddest excuse for special effects I've seen this decade. It's mainly a still of a Celtic church with stars around it. Then Odin and Thor start talking to each about a new hero needs to rise or some crap, who cares really. Apparently Thor and Odin are just gigantic wizard of oz heads that hang out by a Celtic church in the stars. Amazing.
Then they introduce us to some guy thats a high level military scientist who's creating a super soldier suit. This is our hero of the film. He's is poor, lazy , dimwitted, self centered, unfit, just all all-around unlikeable. The worst part is they made him like this on purpose. He is the worst protagonist I have ever seen in a movie and I'm not just saying that, he literally IS the worst. He's by no means the worst actor in the film, so that's a plus I guess.
Anyway, he's suppose to also be a distant relative to Thor and he and his even more lamer buddy made a super suit for the military that just looks offensively atrocious. It looks like a mix between batman and iron man. What the suit does is....I don't know. They tried to garble a bunch of technical gibberish to make suit sound like it actually did things. It even had Thor's hammer with it lol. They claim it was an electrical stabilizer thingy and even one of the scientist said " I think it looks like a hammer" lol classic. I also didn't realize top grade scientists that worked for our military were poor losers that drove crappy cars and worked in confined rented offices with only one computer and a clipboard. Amazing.
The film just craps all over itself from this point on. The acting will have you laughing at every other line. The villain dude will make you laugh at every line. He's the worst actor in the film. Hearing him deliver a line is like watching an old lady fall down an escalator. at first ,its funny been then you want to help them. The thick Canadian accent didn't help either. Nothing says sinister like Canadian right? He was just awful, I wanted to pat him on the back and say with a smile "you gave it your best shot, maybe let someone else try now".
The fight scenes were perhaps the biggest blunder of this suckhole of a movie. Slow pace, sloppy and down right confusing. I honestly don't know how you can make a worse fight scene. Every shot, every line, every fight scene, every set piece, every sound effect and special effect was just a pure disaster. I don't know if this movie was made by someone who's trying to get their work noticed in Hollywood, or if they're just comic fans with time and money and zero experience or if someone tried to make an easy buck of the real Thor movie or all the above. All I know is, once the laughter at this horrible film stopped all I felt was offended. Offended that these people thought we could be entertained by this or be fooled into buying it on DVD. It's a failure and all copies and people involved in this film should be destroyed. Stay away. I'm going to watch the next pile of crap I can find on Netflix an review that too. people must know to stay way from horrors that some film makers bring to amazon and Netflix and red box etc..... My wife will have to endure the suffering with me and my crusade. AMERICAN WARSHIPS ( rip off of the big budget film battleship) your next!!!!

Jay Franco Marvel Black Panther Blue Tribe Super Soft Kids 4 Piece Twin Size Bed Set - Fade Resistant Polyester Microfiber Fill - (Official Marvel Product)
 Hexagons? No. Super soft? No. I’m really upset that what I received is nothing like the pictured item I bought and should have received.

It also says “Quest or Die” which I find inappropriate. If this wasn’t a gift I needed right away for my sons birthday, I’d try and return. But this was the only Onward comforter I could find and get in time. Just wish they would show the correct pictures!!!

It’s not a terrible set, especially for a cheap price. And if I would have known what it actually looks like I would probably still buy it, as it’s affordable and has an Onward design. However I’m giving it only 1 star because it came completely different than expected. Not cool.

I’ve attached a video (kind of hard to do on the top bunk bed) in hopes to help you see the differences and quality of the product.
The Numa Files Collection
The Numa Files Collection
Unlike many who just cannot get into the world of Kurt Austin in the NUMA Files novels, I welcomed the first novel and all subsequent NUMA Files novels. The very FIRST thing you probably need to do before beginning one of these books co-authored by Paul Kemprecos, is to know up front that these are set in the world of Dirk Pitt & Friends--but doesn't feature Dirk. But don't worry--Dirk and Kurt are pretty much clones of one another. LITERALLY. In fact, if you substitute the name of Dirk with Kurt, and Al Giordino with Joe Zavala and you'd have your average everyday action/adventure thriller featuring Dirk Pitt. Yes, they are THAT close. Even down to similar quirks. Dirk collects rare cars, and Kurt collects rare firearms (both quirks are shared with Clive Cussler) and their sidekicks, Al and Joe are even more similar...at least if you ask me.

With that aside, how are the stories? I thought Serpent was fantastic hum-dinger of a tale. While we do not get the chance to raise the Andrea Doria like Dirk did with the Titanic, we DO get a glimpse of what it was like to sail aboard her, and eventually dive on her after she went down after a fatal collision, which according to Serpent may not have been the accident we've been lead to believe all these years. Overall, this was a great first outing for Kurt & Co. and while Cussler no doubt watched carefully over the storyline, I am rather certain Paul Kemprecos handled the majority (if not all) of the actual writing...but never fear: he has managed to copy Clive's patented style perfectly.

Blue Gold was another fine tale, but not quite up to Serpent in my opinion. It did have one of the nastiest Bad Guys to be found in almost any of Cussler's tales...and whats more, the Bad Guy is a Girl. Subsequent NUMA Files novels have been quite good to downright great and at least 3 have been better than probably the last 4-5 Dirk Pitt books. Again, I realize this is speaking blasphemy to some Pitt Purists out there, but that is my honest opinion on the matter. Let's just say that no matter WHAT you think of these books with Kemprecos, they are INFINITELY better than the first two Oregon Files books (Golden Buddha and The Sacred Stone) co-written by Craig Dirgo (the 3rd & 4th books co-authored by Jack DuBrul have been excellent, though).

Once again, if you are a fan of action/adventure novels, you really can't go wrong with the name Cussler on front...and these two books together are a great example of what escapist fiction is all about.

I absolutely loved this book! It was a great follow up to the first and leaves you eagerly wanting to read the third. I love seeing the relationships develop in such a dark world. Fantastically written once again!
American Legends: The Life of Harry Houdini
American Legends: The Life of Harry Houdini
For a quick read on magician and contortionist Harry Houdini, this book is a good place to start. I learned some things about him I did not know (how, in his later life, he worked hard to expose the mystical charlatans who preyed on people, his silent movie career, and that he was an author, himself).

All in all, a solid, informative book. I did notice some typos towards the end, with the final chapter (Houdini in Pop Culture) and in the endnotes. Otherwise, it was well-researched li'l book.

Melitta Caffeo Passione OT F531-102, Kaffeevollautomat mit Milchbehälter, One Touch Funktion, Schwarz
wir haben den 3 Defekt! Nun ist die Maschine 2 Jahre und 8 Monante alt (nun Defekt - außerhalb der Garantiezeit)
Mahlwerk mahlt nur noch jedes 2 Mal.. Melitta kaufe ich mir nie wieder...

Wir haben diese Maschine sogar 2 x gekauft einmal zuhause 1 x Büro. Anfang 2018.
Vorher hatten wir Mellitta CI davor Jura.
Pro1: guter Kaffeegeschmack, wie vorher schon Melitta CI und mit den richtigen Bohnen schmeckt es gut.
Pro2: relativ gute Preis/Leistung im Vergleich zu anderen Herstellern aus meiner Sicht
Contra1: die Maschine war in knapp 18 Monaten bereits 2 x Defekt (1 x Aufschäumer, 1 x Undichtigkeit) beides Mal innerhalb der Garantiezeit repariert, jedes Mal ca. 2 Wochen ohne Maschine.... Das war bei Jura besser da ging das Ruckzuck. bald läuft die Garantie ab mal sehen ob es dann so weitergeht...
Contra 2: die Maschine ist sehr nervig in der Bedienung weil ständig entweder das Wasser alle ist, oder die Bohnen bzw. das Kaffeerest Fach geleert werden muss. Das kommt daher das alle Behälter sehr klein sind im Vergleich zu anderen Herstellern. Ich hatte vorher die Mellitta CI da war das deutlich angenehmer. Man muss also mehrfach am Tag Wasser, Bohnen und Behälter leeren auch wenn man die Maschine nur zu 2 nutzt... die Behälter sind einfach alle viel zu klein.
Contra 3: die Reinigungsprozeduren sind sehr zeitintensiv und müssen häufig durchgeführt werden.
>> Schale leeren, Brühgruppe entnehmen und reinigen, intensiver Reinigungsvorgang mit Tabs, regelmäßige Entkalkungsvorgang mit Entkalker oder Tab, regelmäßiger Filterwechsel, regelmäßigMilchsystem spülen mit Spezialreiniger, und weil das alles nicht langt Easy Clean nach jedem Bezug (manuell ausführen)
>> das ist schon sehr nervig, hier könnte Melitta tatsächlich mal ein automatisches Reinigungsprogramm spendieren welches zumindest Kaffeesystem, Milchsystem und Brühgruppe in einem Abwasch reinigt, so das man nur noch hin und wieder die Entkalkung und Filterwechsel manuell machen muss.

>> ich kann hier keine Kaufempfehlung aussprechen, würde nächstes Mal wohl eine Delonghi oder Siemens ausprobieren oder wieder zu Jura zurück...

De'Longhi ESAM 5400 Kaffeevollautomat (Digitaldisplay, Milchaufschäumdüse, Kegelmahlwerk 13 Stufen, Herausnehmbare Brühgruppe, 2-Tassen-Funktion) schwarz
Auf Empfehlung eines Kollegen und durch einen guten Warehouse-Deal haben wir uns für diesen Automaten entschieden.
Seither ist er bei uns seit fast 4 Jahren im Einsatz.

Positiv:
Kaffee ist leicht und schnell zubereitet, Maschine ist sehr gut zu reinigen, Einstellungen zu Kaffeestärke und Wassermenge sind übersichtlich und leicht verständlich. Alles ist von vorn/oben zugänglich. Lautstärke und Kaffeequalität sind für meinen Geschmack auch sehr in Ordnung. Haltbarkeit und Qualität finde ich nach den fast 4 Jahren auch top. Da kenne ich viele schlechtere Beispiele...
Neutral:
Die Abstellfläche für die Tassen zerkratzt recht schnell(was mich wenig stört, es ist ein Gebrauchsgegenstand)
Negativ:
Es kommt immer mal wieder vor, das Kaffeereste in der Maschine landen, da der gemahlene Rest(ist dann meist krümelig und feucht) nicht richtig zusammen gepresst wird. Bisher war dann eine Entkalkung fällig, danach lief es wieder wie zuvor perfekt.
Leider erkennt die Maschine den Wasserstand nicht ausreichend. Es kann also vorkommen, das man ohne Wasserstandskontrolle einen Kaffee machen möchte, aber nur eine halbvolle Tasse bekommt. Deshalb besser vor dem Drücken einen Blick auf den Wasserbehälter werfen ;)

Fazit: meine Schwiegermutter hat sich diese Maschine jetzt auch gekauft, weil sie die Bedienbarkeit bei uns so toll fand. Ich kann sie auch ohne Bedenken weiterempfehlen. Die kleinen Negativpunkte sind schnell behoben bzw. umgangen.
Ein Stern abzug für die nicht optimale Wasserstandserkennung.

I’ve had egg cookers before, but this one has a much small footprint and so is easier to store. The others I had would cook only 7 eggs at a time, so when making deviled eggs for a party, I had to cook them in batches, but this one cooks up to 14. I love how quickly it cooks and how easy it is. I love my new egg cooker, better than any other I’ve had. I look forward to trying the other cooking styles this machine will do! And for hard-boiled eggs, I’ll never mess with boiling water in a big pot again!
