Not every ghost is going to be a genius. That's just the way it is. When Stan Johnson's attempt to withdraw from society is interrupted by a visitor from another dimension he learns more than he ever bargained for about family ties, social grace, and murder. Now he's on Death Row, contending with a sleazy lawyer and an annoying young trio of aspiring Psychotherapists. Lethal injection has never looked more desirable.
Summer nights get interesting for three octogenarian sisters when a mysterious crooner shows up under one of their windows. Sway is a whimsical tale of sisterhood, romance, the power of memories, and the dangers of holding a grudge.
A YALSA 2015 Best Fiction for Young Adults Pick In Kat Spears's hilarious and often poignant debut, high school senior Jesse Alderman, or "Sway," as he's known, could sell hell to a bishop. He also specializes in getting things people want---term papers, a date with the prom queen, fake IDs. He has few close friends and he never EVER lets emotions get in the way. For Jesse, life is simply a series of business transactions. But when Ken Foster, captain of the football team, leading candidate for homecoming king, and all-around jerk, hires Jesse to help him win the heart of the angelic Bridget Smalley, Jesse finds himself feeling all sorts of things. While following Bridget and learning the intimate details of her life, he falls helplessly in love for the very first time. He also finds himself in an accidental friendship with Bridget's belligerent and self-pitying younger brother who has cerebral palsy. Suddenly, Jesse is visiting old folks at a nursing home in order to run into Bridget, and offering his time to help the less fortunate, all the while developing a bond with this young man who idolizes him. Could the tin man really have a heart after all? A Cyrano de Bergerac story with a modern twist, Sway is told from Jesse's point of view with unapologetic truth and biting humor, his observations about the world around him untempered by empathy or compassion---until Bridget's presence in his life forces him to confront his quiet devastation over a life-changing event a year earlier and maybe, just maybe, feel something again.

The Irresistible Pull of Irrational Behaviour
Author: Ori Brafman,Rom Brafman
Pubpsher: Random House
Category: Business & Economics
Why are we more likely to fall in love when we feel in danger? Why would an experienced pilot disregard his training and the rules of the aviation industry, leading to the deadliest airline crash in history? Why do we find it near-impossible to re-evaluate our first impressions of a person or situation, even when the evidence shows we were wrong? Discover the answers in Sway. We all believe we are rational beings, yet the truth is that we're much more prone to irrational behaviour than we realise or like to admit. In this compelling book, Ori and Rom Brafman reveal why. Looking at irrational behaviour in fields as diverse as medicine, archaeology and the legal system, they chart the psychological undercurrents that influence even our most basic decisions. In doing so they draw on the latest research in social psychology and behavioural economics to reveal the irresistible forces that sway us all. Sway is a fascinating insight into the way we all behave and will change the way you view the world.
Three dramatic and emblematic stories intertwine in Sway - the early days of the Rolling Stones; the life of avant-garde filmmaker Kenneth Anger; and the community of Charles Manson and his followers. Together they illuminate a decade's rise and fall; its gods and devils; and a particular hour in American history when many young revellers seeking joy, fellowship and liberation fell under a darker spell, leading to unprovoked and inexplicable violence.
The book introduces anti-sway control approaches for double-pendulum overhead cranes, including control methods, theoretical analyses, simulation results and source codes of each control design. All methods are analyzed and verified by MATLAB. Passivity-based, sliding-mode-based and Fuzzy-logic-based control methods are massively discussed. This book is suitable for both academic researchers and industrial R&D engineers.
