Tait in the bestselling Mapmaker Chronicles. 'Not since Emily Rodda's DELTORA QUEST series has there been such an exciting adventure tale from an Australian author. Echoes of Robinson Crusoe make this feel like a classic with a new twist, and it's perfect for readers aged 8 to 12 who are looking for some escapism in the sea of contemporary stories.' - Readings on THE MAPMAKER CHRONICLES 1: RACE TO THE END OF THE WORLD
I can't tell you my name. I can't tell you where I live. I can't tell you who I work for, or any details about the people with whom I work. Because where I live, my line of work is not exactly legal. But if you can pardon the vagueness, I have a story for you. Edge of the Map is a memoir of the calling and adjustment, success and failure of our first year as missionaries to a closed country in the 10/40 window. It tells the story of how my family and I lived out the challenges and blessings of the lives we tried to lay down for Jesus. It is the book I would have wished for, had I known the right questions to ask. How do I know that I'm called overseas? How do I move beyond callousness and distraction? What do I do once I've accepted a call to the nations? What issues arise after I step into my calling? How do I go about resolving those issues? Edge of the Map speaks to these questions in hopes that our journey to a closed country will help nudge the souls of a young, poised generation toward the calling God is whispering over their lives.
Edge of the Map is equal parts inspiring, dramatic, and heartbreaking. One of America’s greatest high altitude mountaineers, Christine Boskoff was at the top of her career when she and her partner died in an avalanche in 2006. Charismatic, principled, and humble, Boskoff was also a deeply loved role model to her climbing partners and the Sherpa community. Edge of the Map traces the sharp twists and turns in Boskoff’s life, from her early years as a Lockheed engineer, through her first successes in the climbing world, to her purchase of Seattle-based Mountain Madness after owner and climber Scott Fischer died in the 1996 Everest disaster. Her life was one of constant achievement mixed with personal tragedy. The story follows Boskoff as she perseveres and moves on to even bigger peaks, earning acclaim as a world-class mountaineer, then later as she finds an alpine partnership with legendary Colorado climber Charlie Fowler.
This book tracks the progress of a four hundred year effort to map the coasts of North America after 1492. A set of maps show the progression of exploration over time, and narratives of the voyages illustrate the trials and dangers faced by the men as they made their maps.
Two beautifully illustrated maps, plus a book of characters, places and extra facts to enhance reading the Edge Chronicles adventures. The Deepwoods, the Stone Gardens, the Edgewater River, Undertown and Screetown, New Sanctaphrax, and the Free Glades. Behind each name lies a thousand tales — tales that have been recorded on ancient scrolls, and related in this wonderful fantasy series. Now, for the first time, complete with descriptions of some of the best-known places in this magnificently inventive world, two glorious full-colour fold-out maps are available, illustrating the Edgeworld over the generations — from the time of the sky pirate Cloud Wolf and his son, Twig, through to the post-stone-sickness world of young Rook Barkwater.
This book presents the proceedings of the 24th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI 2020), held in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, from 29 August to 8 September 2020. The conference was postponed from June, and much of it conducted online due to the COVID-19 restrictions. The conference is one of the principal occasions for researchers and practitioners of AI to meet and discuss the latest trends and challenges in all fields of AI and to demonstrate innovative applications and uses of advanced AI technology. The book also includes the proceedings of the 10th Conference on Prestigious Applications of Artificial Intelligence (PAIS 2020) held at the same time. A record number of more than 1,700 submissions was received for ECAI 2020, of which 1,443 were reviewed. Of these, 361 full-papers and 36 highlight papers were accepted (an acceptance rate of 25% for full-papers and 45% for highlight papers). The book is divided into three sections: ECAI full papers; ECAI highlight papers; and PAIS papers. The topics of these papers cover all aspects of AI, including Agent-based and Multi-agent Systems; Computational Intelligence; Constraints and Satisfiability; Games and Virtual Environments; Heuristic Search; Human Aspects in AI; Information Retrieval and Filtering; Knowledge Representation and Reasoning; Machine Learning; Multidisciplinary Topics and Applications; Natural Language Processing; Planning and Scheduling; Robotics; Safe, Explainable, and Trustworthy AI; Semantic Technologies; Uncertainty in AI; and Vision. The book will be of interest to all those whose work involves the use of AI technology.
In a view that sweeps from the tenth century to the mid 16th century, this text shows how the English people's concern with their island's relative isolation on the global map contributed to the emergence of a distinctive English national consciousness in which marginality came to be seen as a virtue.
Taken from the proceedings of the 2003 IEEE/RSJ International Conference, this volume examines aspects of intelligent robots and systems.
