Artificial Neural Networks in Practice
Hyperion Books, 2002
A boy with no name of his own living in 14th-Century loses his mother. Following her death, he discovers his real name, Crispin, and is declared "Wolf's Head, " the medieval version of "Wanted: Dead or Alive." His only option is to leave his village, a dangerous proposition for a boy with no family, no trade, no money, and no idea where to go. He is claimed as a servant by a traveling entertainer, and while his new master may seem harsh at times, he is also a protector who eventually helps Crispin claim his own freedom.
While the draw of this book is firmly rooted in characterization, vivid details of daily living in 14th-Century England make the characters seem realistic. Crispin's first glimpse of a real city astonishes him:
"Pressing in on the crowded, narrow streets were looming walls of close-built buildings, structures two, sometimes three stories high, with slate, not thatch, roofs. These houses were, for the most part, built of timber beams with pale mortar filling in between the wood."

That is a misunderstanding of Biblical prophecy
the antichrist will not have a 7 year reign, this is commonly referred to as the 'seven years of tribulation'. find that phrase for me in the Bible- it doesnt exist.
it is a misunderstanding of the 70 weeks prophecy located in Daniel 9:24-27. the Jews have placed a talmudic curse on anyone that attempts to calculate the numbers give in these verses because it proves that Jesus was the Messiah. It proves the date He would come, how long His ministry would last, and that He would be crucified 3 and 1/2 years into His ministry.
today, prevalent in theology (read that, Jesuit theology-- which has slithered its way into protestant seminaries ((preterism/futurism))) has come up with the idea that the last 'week' (7 days, or,...

Someone here might gain something from it. It is true.
For the past week I have had prolonged bouts of crying. I have not been able to sleep or eat and didnt answer the phone. What would cause this? Death in the family? Losing the house? Cancer diagnosis? Not at all.
My depression has been over the stock market. Not over how much money I've lost, but rather how much money I would have made had I not sold my stock. I invested 50% of our money into it so we're not talking chump change. It would have been enough to buy a house, more as it continues to climb.
Now I am not normally an emotional person. Prior to investing in the markets, I maybe would cry 1-2 times a year and always for a reason. I have a good life with no money worries, loving husband, my health, etc. but I...

Good afternoon. Let me begin by saying that although this has been billed as an anti-war rally, I stand before you as someone who is not opposed to war in all circumstances.
The Civil War was one of the bloodiest in history, and yet it was only through the crucible of the sword, the sacrifice of multitudes, that we could begin to perfect this union, and drive the scourge of slavery from our soil. I dont oppose all wars.
My grandfather signed up for a war the day after Pearl Harbor was bombed, fought in Pattons army. He saw the dead and dying across the fields of Europe; he heard the stories of fellow troops who first entered Auschwitz and Treblinka. He fought in the name of a larger freedom, part of that arsenal of...
