Mastering TypeScript - Second Edition
Mastering TypeScript - Second Edition
This is a fantastic book.

When I was told that I needed to learn about TypeScript to fit into a new team at a client,
I purchased this book and spent around two weeks after hours working through the chapters and samples.

I found the flow of the book to be at a good pace, each chapter building on the knowledge learned from previous ones.
Coming from a C# background, and understanding object oriented principles, picking up TypeScript felt natural.

When I eventually joined the team, I was quite surprised at how much in-depth knowledge I had
compared to the existing team members. Where I felt comfortable writing basic things like declaration files, generics and promises,
most of the other members still did not fully grasp the concepts, and were still battling by learning through trial and error.

As a new team member, I thought that I would need to spend quite some time learning from everyone else, until my
knowledge had grown to their level. What I found, however was quite the opposite.

With the knowledge and techniques that I had learnt, I was able to contribute to the team's velocity very quickly.
I was also able to identify opportunities for re-factoring, and suggest to the team better ways of tackling difficult problems.

To me, the real strength of this book was the author's coverage of different frameworks. By working through and understanding
how the same concepts are implemented in each of them, I gained a broader view of the strengths and weaknesses of each. This
helped the team in identifying and selecting the right framework for each of our projects.

As a consultant, I am expected to be able to walk into a new customer, join a new project, and hit the ground running.
This book gave me all the knowledge I needed to do exactly that.
Time Steve Jobs: The Genius Who Changed Our World
Time Steve Jobs: The Genius Who Changed Our World
This volume presents many rare photos of Steve and plenty of great product photography, along with well written copy on the genius of Steve Jobs. I caution potential buyers of this book, and any other products from Amazon, to accept that you "get what you pay for" when dealing with them. My copy of "TIME Steve Jobs' arrived with dented corners, a scratched dust jacket, and black soot covering the entire book. Amazon needs to redesign their packaging to better protect its contents from damage. If you care about the condition of your books, I would suggest buying from a place that cares about delivering products in excellent condition even if you have to pay full price.
The Complete Guide to Hunting, Butchering, and Cooking Wild Game: Volume 2: Small Game and Fowl
The Complete Guide to Hunting, Butchering, and Cooking Wild Game: Volume 2: Small Game and Fowl
I am a fan of Rinella's from watching "Meateater" and listening to his "Meateater" podcast. I bought his first book "Meateater: Adventures in the Life of an American Hunter" and was hooked.

I bought this book via Kindle but after a once-through reading decided to buy the paperback version of it so my other family members could read and reference it too. Once I got the book in hand I re-read it and I'm glad I did. For whatever reason I picked up a lot more from the paperback than I ever did from the Kindle version. I guess it probably has something to do with the reference-book feel this book has and the ability to skip around and gather in the whole picture of what this book offers up. The Kindle format works really well for a novel or a mono-formatted book like a historical non-fiction.......this book is neither.

One thing I want to point out about Rinella..........his style of writing (and talking) and his methods, tools and attitudes towards the animals and pursuit really make sense to me. As a transplanted Mid-westerner now living and hunting in the West myself I can really identify where he's coming from on having to evolve from Midwestern traditions and methods about hunting to the Western US approach to the critters out here in the West. Until I'd read Rinella I hadn't stumbled across anyone that eloquently and accurately describes this transition.

This book tells the brief story of Elon Musk, who is certainly one of the greatest visionaries of all time. Musk has already left his mark upon the world by building some amazing companies such as PayPal, Space X, and Tesla Motors, and one thing is certain: he's not going to stop. The book also provides the lessons and principles which built the foundation for Elon Musk's success, so I definitely recommend it to every entrepreneur who's aim is to change the world.

Bob Dylan: Prophet, Mystic, Poet
Bob Dylan: Prophet, Mystic, Poet
Not only do I enjoy Bob Dylan's music and songwriting but the development of Jewish and Christian traditions is something that I enjoy reading about and studying as a spiritual person. Needless to say, I was quite pleased when I discovered that someone had embarked upon the task of documenting references, either direct or indirect, of Dylan's Jewish heritage and how that heritage has affected his songwriting and life. Unfortunately, Dylan's Jewishness has often been neglected in writings about him. It's generally passed over as a piece of trivia, not as a contributive identity. He is recognized as the singer, the songwriter, the poet, even the prophet - but what about Dylan the Jew? Of course, the book doesn't treat Dylan's religious beliefs directly, but it surely surmises.

Overall, the book was a quick read yet highly informed and thus highly informative. It easily ranks among the best books on Dylan currently available. The author, a longtime follower and researcher of Dylan, tries hard not to repeat too much information available elsewhere while also acknowledging that there are some very basic facts which newcomers - whether to the musician or the literature about him - need to know. Such is inevitable. Where this book excels is in connecting the imagery found in the biblical prophets (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, et. al.) and Dylan's lyrics. Even the staunchest biblicist might not readily be able to see such otherwise apparent parallels, but Rogovoy has done his research. There are moments when the connection cannot be explained any other way than to suggest that Dylan was as intimately familiar with the texts of Jewish tradition as he was with the works or Rimbaud, Brecht, and William Blake.

That being said, however, at times the connections between the biblical prophets and Dylan's lyrics seem forced, sometimes based on little more than a few matching words even when context seems to demand exclusive interpretations. Outside of John Wesley Harding and New Morning and other explicit moments of Dylan's affluence for biblical imagery, there are definitely moments when the thesis of the book is stretched to its outermost limits applying biblical or talmudic references when in fact there is very little or no connection at all. The author displays a tendency to connect words or three-word phrases to themes which have very little business being connected. For this reason, the album-by-album, song-by-song exegesis which serves as the layout of practically the entire book soon grows long in the tooth and sometimes proves to be redundant. By the mid-'80s, Dylan's songs seems to have settled upon a few ideological bases which inform his work from that point forward with only slight modifications whether that be in terms of degree or perception. Thus, when Rogovoy's explication of "Shot of Love" and "Infidels" highlights that Dylan's songs increasingly focus on a "world gone wrong," the final pages of the book could easily be skipped without missing much new revelation on the subject.

Even though the author and Harold Lepidus (of the Bob Dylan Examiner, who assisted Rogovoy with the book) both state that Dylan's religious beliefs are not directly dealt with in the book, it's difficult not to read the chapters titled "Burnt Offerings" and the following "Psalms" somewhat apologetically. Despite what the author states in interviews, there is definitely a certain emphasis placed upon attempting to extract Dylan from his "born-again Christian" identification. For example, in the chapter titled "Psalms," when discussing the song "When The Night Comes Falling From The Sky," specifically the lines "I don't want to be a fool starving for affection/I don't want to drown in someone else's wine," Rogovoy interprets these lines as suggesting that Dylan is recanting his earlier acceptance of wine as Jesus' blood (as is believed by many evangelical and Catholic Christians) and that the born-again Christian period was merely a phase promulgated by a love relationship. In short, Dylan was and is not a true Christian believer. Taking this concept further, Rogovoy interprets the final verse of the song "Man of Peace" as referring to Dylan's return to his distinctive Jewish identity by suggesting that Dylan was beginning to view Jesus as Satan. A proper analysis of these lines within the context of the song, though, do not warrant even a hint of this type of surreptitious, nuanced interpretation. Despite what the author says about his not getting directly involved in Dylan's religious affairs, it nonetheless seems apparent that Rogovoy isn't going to allow Dylan to stray far from the Jewish fold. In this vein, Rogovoy attempts to suggest that the concept of Jesus as Messiah and as Dylan's personal savior is not quite as implicit in the songs of this born-again time period as some people might otherwise claim, thus attempting to resurrect the albums Slow Train Coming and Saved for pundits of whatever creed; however, he fails to read between the lines, not recognizing allusions to Jesus even when the name "Jesus" isn't referenced. The very cover art of the album Slow Train Coming symbolically alludes to faith in Jesus as Messiah. Where Rogovoy excels in his understanding of traditional Judaism, he alternatively displays a certain ignorance when it comes to Christianity and the Christian tradition, including everything from classical exegesis to the high arts - the very things which help to inform the imagery of Slow Train Coming, Saved, and even Shot of Love (which the author excludes from this period despite thereference to the Gospel of Matthew in the liner notes). For this reason, he fails to properly acknowledge the Jewish roots of Christianity, thus accounting for why the images found in the lyrics of Dylan's born-again "phase" may seem like an extension of his Jewish heritage.

Aside from these criticisms, the book ought to be applauded as pioneering a whole new brand of Dylan research. I look forward to further books and articles which expand upon the thesis of this book while exercising some constraint for the sake of precision.
Animosity
Animosity
Today in 2005, "punk" and "metal" bear almost no resemblance to their earlier incarnations from 20 years ago. The punk of today is a mere shadow of its original form; all elements of danger and threat have long since dried up and blown away, replaced with mass acceptance and commercialism. Traditional heavy metal doesn't even exist anymore. It's been cross-bred with other genres to the point of extinction. I'm not saying this is a bad thing. Change is inevitable, especially in music. But this process started somewhere, and I think one of the starting points was Animosity by COC.

In the early '80s, punk and metal were diametrically opposed. If you liked punk, you hated metal and vice versa. Eventually, things started to change. I remember when all of a sudden it was OK to like Motorhead. And then, a few hardcore bands began to openly admit that they liked Black Sabbath and such, and they wrote songs that made this apparent. COC was one of those bands, and you can hear some evidence on their first album Eye For an Eye. But Animosity is the prime example of this phenomenon. I can still vividly remember the night my band mates and I went to Black Hole records in Brea CA and bought an Animosity LP, and then went to our bassist's house to listen to it. We knew we liked it*... but we couldn't figure out whether it was punk or metal. The important thing is, it didn't matter. We recognized that it kicked an unfathomable amount of ass, and that was the bottom line. I distinctly recall the phrase "dude... holy s***!" being uttered more than once as we listened that night.

I'd hesitate to recommend this to anyone who's become a COC fan recently, which to me means since 1991, when they essentially left any and all "punk" trappings behind. I usually don't accuse bands of 'selling out' and in fact I often am annoyed when others do. But in this case, I think it's apt. COC sold out. Their last four albums haven't been completely worthless, but they're basically "Pepper Keenan and the Corroded Conformists" now. Pepper took control and made things groooovy, man. They sound like a grouchy Allman Bros. these days. Half of the new COC album sounds like Soundgarden's last album. If you want to hear COC when they had real fire burning in their bellies, when they truly mattered, you need to hear Animosity. It's raw, it's rough, it's unpolished. But it's @#$%ing intense and it'll blow your doors off.

Fun facts:

Drummer Reed Mullin sings two songs on the album- Holier and Prayer. If you listen carefully you can tell the difference between him and Mike. There are a couple of moments when Reed sounds a little bit like Milo from the Descendents.

The secret to the particularly psychotic sounding vocals on certain songs is that when those songs were being mixed, the vocal track was processed through a Tom Scholz Rockman guitar unit to give them some edgy distortion.

*Our drummer didn't like it, but he didn't like anything.
Avengers Assemble Thor Molded Hammer
Avengers Assemble Thor Molded Hammer
Le narré a mi hija de menos de 3 años que yo había hablado con Thor para que le prestara su martillo, y que lo iba a enviar por el bifröst desde Asgard. Cuando llegó por Amazon salimos al patio a mirar el cielo y un oportuno avión a reacción me prestó su estela para apoyar mi historia, el nerviosismo de mi hija al mirar al cielo e imaginar el martillo volando hacia donde estábamos era tremendo, no se podía estar quieta. A mi señal mi madre soltó el martillo desde la planta de arriba y cayó en el jardín. La histeria se apoderó de mi hija, se escondió tras mi pierna, gritó llamando a su abuela que el martillo había llegado y tardó por lo menos 5 minutos en acercarse a él, no se atrevía. Fui yo quien intenté levantarlo sin éxito, ningún adulto podía, Mjölnir sólo podía ser levantado por niños y niñas. Ese día flipó lo más grande y ahora blande orgullosa su martillo. Si tenéis oportunidad, regaladles a vuestros hijos una infancia llena de cosas imposibles, seguramente en el futuro la realidad les corte las alas pero hay que intentar que la imaginación de los niños vuele tan alto como podamos, mientras podamos.
Leo Tolstoy: Spiritual Writings (Modern Spiritual Masters)
Leo Tolstoy: Spiritual Writings (Modern Spiritual Masters)
I discovered Tolstoy when I was twelve years old, and I've been reading and rereading him ever since (over forty years now; where did all that time go!?) My guess is that Tolstoy is one of the major influences in my life. I only began to appreciate how deeply he'd influenced me when I discovered Gandhi in my twenties, and realized that I agreed with most of what the Mahatma said because I'd already been convinced by Tolstoy.

But I've always been puzzled by Tolstoy's religious beliefs, never feeling that I had a good grasp of them but sensing that until I did, I could never really appreciate Tolstoy's message. Charles Moore's excellent compilation has helped me begin to make sense of what Tolstoy believed. Reading his anthology, I'm persuaded that sometimes Tolstoy's reflections on religion simply don't make sense (his "Thoughts on God" strike me as simply confused), sometimes they suggest a liberal moralism dressed up as religion, and sometimes they're preachy and judgmental. But at his best, Tolstoy's vision of God as love, prayer as the method by which we get in touch with divine love, and the exercise of love as the heart of Jesus' message, is superb. It's what inspired Gandhi in his nonviolence, and it's what makes Tolstoy still worth reading. (One crucial question, however, is how to sustain loyalty to Jesus' moral message while denying, as Tolstoy did, Jesus' divinity.)

Moore's anthology also focuses (in its first section) on Tolstoy's lifelong search for meaning and truth (Tolstoy's dying words were an affirmation of his love for truth). Tolstoy was one of those persons with a deep and abiding hunger for deep meaning in life, and this longing motivated much in his life and writings, sometimes driving him to excess. In our day and age, existential hunger seems quaint. Perhaps we fear to acknowledge our own hunger because we sense, howsoever vaguely, that doing so will bring us pain. But if Tolstoy's correct, we only really learn to love when we embrace the hunger.

All in all, much good nourishment in this collection, prefaced by a very worthy introduction written by editor Moore. Highly recommended.

Der Manga ist echt sehr schön & die Qualität des Buches ist super!
Aufgrund der Breite ist es leider etwas unhandlich.

Die Übersetzung ins Deutsche ist leider nicht sehr gut.
Manche Wörter werden übersetzt (Sensei/Meister), manche werden nicht übersetzt (Hokage).
Teilweise unschlüssig bzw. unlogisch, zB wird einmal gesagt, das Fuchsungeheuer habe sich in Naruto verwandelt, ein paar Seiten später wurde es dann doch wieder in ihm versiegelt.
Manche Wörter/Sätze ergeben keinen Sinn zum Bild bzw. passen einfach nicht (zB S.61 statt "bitterer Ernst" wird "Bier-Ernst" geschrieben, oder zB sieht man mehrmals ganz deutlich, dass Naruto eine Schriftrolle stiehlt & es wird ständig mit Buch übersetzt).
Die mäßige Übersetzung wertet den Manga leider ab.

Ich hoffe, das bessert sich noch in den Nachfolge-Bänden. :)

Very happy with everything about this product. I've have these and wore them every day for over a month and still like new. I'm very hard on my insoles and have bought many memory foam inserts that barely last a week before losing their memory. These have just enough cushion for my bad feet and feel great. I have washed them once by hand (because I spilled something on them) and they're still like new. They're very warm and soft. They soles are suede and they don't slip around inside my shoes like many other inserts. They run true to size. They also stay very fresh smelling. I'm so impressed that I'm ordering another pair right now. I fully recommend these. BTW I paid full price for them and have not been paid to say any of this, although I'd love it if they sent me a pair for free. Ha, ha.

I was impressed by the design of this cable when looking online. The end of the cable that fits in my iphone X easily slips out, I do not have any obstructions on my phone case around the area of the of the connection. I use this cable in my cars to connect to Apple Car Play. I find myself using the vehicle navigation system because of the poor cable connection, cable easily slips out of the phone.

Bella valigia, leggera benfatta, fa una bella figura a vedersi, maneggevole....peccato che le misure indicate nella descrizione non corrispondono con la realtà!!! Ho acquistato una valigia della dimensione 68, Convinta che le misure che venivano indicate fossero quelle della scocca della valigia, ovvero la parte rigida dove vengono messi i vestiti, invece le misure indicate sul sito quindi l’altezza di 68 cm, comprende le ruote e anche la maniglia! Per cui la valigia è molto più piccola rispetto a quella che dovrebbe essere!!!! Quella di 68 e’ poco più grande di un trolley da cabina di aereo. Bisognerebbe che specificassero meglio nella descrizione le misure indicate per evitare questi spiacevoli malintesi
Nelle foto potete vedere la mia vecchia valigia verde di 68 cm di altezza contro quella che mi è arrivata pubblicizzata anche essa come 68 cm
Fissler vitaquick Pressure Cooker Stainless Steel Induction, 8.5 Quart, silver
Fissler vitaquick Pressure Cooker Stainless Steel Induction, 8.5 Quart, silver
30 years ago I was gifted a Hawkins aluminum wiggle-top pressure cooker. After using it for about 10 years, until it warped, and until I became worried about cooking in aluminum, I upgraded to a Kuhn Rikon Duromatic 7L cooker. The Duromatic has served us well for some 20 years, though I have always had issues with scorching at the edges, and it's a bit narrow for the amount of food that it can fit. I was given an Instant Pot for my birthday. After using the Kuhn Rikon, the Instant Pot was painfully slow to come up to pressure (30 minutes vs maybe 5 or 6 for the Kuhn Rikon), and scorched foods even more than the Kuhn Rikon. It also decided that food was being burnt and turned off, so I ended up "finishing" the food in the Kuhn Rikon. I don't understand all the fuss about Instant Pots, but on the bright side it means that there are a lot more pressure cooker recipes available (though I still rely on Lorna Sass for most methods).
I returned the Instant Pot to the store, and renewed my interest in stovetop pressure cookers. After reading the reviews of the Fissler by America's Test Kitchen, I decided to give it a try. Why did I wait so long?! I did a pressure test first thing (about 2L of water brought to high pressure for 5 minutes), and it worked like a dream. Quite a bit of machine oil came off with that first trial, so I definitely recommend doing this as well as washing it before first use. It's much wider than the Kuhn Rikon (about 10 inches versus about 8), and so it's easier to saute before starting to pressure cook. The bottom is super-heavy and goes all the way to the edge. Sauteeing is dream, as the heat is constant - more like a nice dutch oven than a regular pan. It seemed to take slightly longer to reach high pressure than the Kunh Rikon (6 or 7 minutes for 2 cups of rice and 6 cups of liquid vs. maybe 5 for the Kuhn Rikon), which makes sense because it's a lot heavier. Once it reached pressure, I turned the heat very low, and the pressure remained high - much less fiddling with the heat on my gas stove to keep the pressure even than with the Kuhn Rikon. The first dish I made was a paella-flavored risotto - no scorching and it was completely perfect in exactly the time noted in Lorna Sass's recipes for risotto. My husband then made a Korean stew with tofu and beef short ribs - the meat was falling off the bone after 20 minutes at pressure and a natural release. Amazing! I like the pressure release button - no more having to waste water cooling the cooker for a quick release, and no more mess. The little "hat" that covers the well surrounding the pressure valve on the Kuhn Rikon fell off years ago, and so water collects in that well when cooling it with water, and then that water spills when taking the lid off. There is no well on the top of the Fissler, so this would not be an issue, though I don't know why one would use water when the button works so well. I wear steamproof oven mitts and put a dish towel over the pot to contain the steam when using the pressure-release button. The pressure indicator is easy to see. It's easy to clean, though it is really heavy so definitely use 2 hands to move it around. I expect that it will serve well for another 20 years. It appears that replacement parts are available, so I will replace the gasket and other rubber/plastic bits regularly. I waited too long to do this with the Kuhn Rikon, and when I finally did, it made a large difference in performance of the pot. The Fissler is a functional thing of beauty! I highly recommend this pressure cooker.
