LISA18 - How Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Went from Months to Minutes with Infrastructure Delivery
 
25:36
Robert Allen Abstract: By leveraging Apache Mesos and Apache Aurora they were able to deliver those applications while cutting annual costs by six figures and begin the process of empowering engineers to focus on innovative products and not the infrastructure. Embracing common open source practices, agile methods and open source technologies HMH began a journey of transforming how innovation occurs in its engineering organizations. This conversation focuses attention on the journey and provides candid examples of the mistakes and successes along the way as well as the practical insights of changing the hearts and minds of engineers, product owners and management. Ultimately leading to a more productive, creative, agile and happier organization. The odyssey from "Lift and Shift" operations to a Apache Mesos centric self-service platform that establishes the technology foundations which enables engineers to go from idea to delivery in a matter of minutes has lead to a remarkable evolution in ideas and customer satisfaction. This technology exists for everyone, there is no "secret sauce". The challenges that are often less known is the "people problem" which merits understanding, preparation and sharing at all levels of an organization.

FERC - Flat Earth Paradise Found (Part - 1)
 
11:55
Paradise Found, the Cradle of the Human Race at the North Pole – a Study of the Primitive World, by William Fairfield Warren; 1885; Houghton Mifflin, Boston. A book by William Fairfield, the first president of Boston University, placing Atlantis at the North Pole, as well as the Garden of Eden, Mount Meru, Avalon and Hyperborea. Warren believed all these mythical lands were folk memories of a former inhabited far northern seat where man was originally created. From the preface: This book is not the work of a dreamer. Neither has it proceeded from a love of learned paradox. Nor yet is it a cunningly devised fable aimed at particular tendencies in current science, philosophy, or religion. It is a thoroughly serious and sincere attempt to present what is to the author s mind the true and final solution of one of the greatest and most fascinating of all problems connected with the history of mankind.

Dian Fossey habituated a troop of gorillas to her presence in an unusual way. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe About Dian Fossey: Secrets in the Mist Dian Fossey: Secrets in the Mist is a three hour series for National Geographic Channel. The series tells the story of the life, work, murder and legacy of gorilla researcher Dian Fossey. The series will weave together three story strands. The first is the story of Dian's life and work - her childhood, her early days researching in Congo and her arrival in Rwanda for the 18 years she studied Mountain Gorillas. The second strand covers Dian's murder in Rwanda and the trial of her American co-worker Wayne McGuire, who was found guilty of her murder. Wayne fled Rwanda before the trial began but was convicted in absentia. He has always maintained his innocence. We intend to reopen the case by reviewing the evidence (if it can be located) and speaking with people who knew and worked with Dian and were involved in investigating the murder. Finally, we will tell the story of Dian's legacy by filming the Pablo troop of gorillas, which includes the silverback Cantsbee, the most successful gorilla ever known. The series will use archive footage and still images, interviews with people who knew and worked with Dian, specially shot footage and reconstruction to tell the life story of Dian Fossey and the aftermath of her murder.

Bellweather Rhapsody (Official Trailer)
 
00:39
Book trailer for the novel BELLWEATHER RHAPSODY by Kate Racculia. Coming from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt on May 13, 2014. A high school music festival goes awry when a young prodigy disappears from a hotel room that was the site of a famous crime, in a whip-smart novel sparkling with the dark and giddy pop culture pleasures of The Shining, Agatha Christie, and Glee Fifteen years ago, a murder/suicide in room 712 rocked the grand old Bellweather Hotel and the young bridesmaid who witnessed it. Now hundreds of high school musicians, including quiet bassoonist Rabbit Hatmaker and his brassy diva twin, Alice, have gathered in its cavernous, crumbling halls for the annual Statewide festival; the grown-up bridesmaid has returned to face her demons; and a snowstorm is forecast that will trap everyone on the grounds. Then one of the orchestra's stars disappears—from room 712. Is it a prank, or has murder struck the Bellweather once again? The search for answers entwines a hilariously eccentric cast of characters—conductors and caretakers, failures and stars, teenagers on the verge and adults trapped in memories. For everyone has come to the Bellweather with a secret, and everyone is haunted.

Dr. O'Connell-Rodwell explains how she discovered that elephants are just like us, they communicate through the ground and what all this means for human beings. "Are (we) going to allow elephants to exist. Aside from poaching, it's a land-use issue" - Dr. Caitlin Elizabeth O'Connell-Rodwell Recognizing Boundaries Like the US/Mexico border issue, elephants struggle with similar issues. They recognize where it's safe to be, when it's hunting season and when to sneak into the cornfields when it's ripe. Like humans, elephants know when is the best time to raid a resource. "Like humans...the great leaders have an equal balance between carrot and stick. They are respected because they are tough but they are also soft." - Dr. Caitlin Elizabeth O'Connell-Rodwell Historically humans have always put themselves above other species. We are now at a time in history where we must re-evaluate that paradigm. There are critically endangered species and it's up to us to decide whether they survive. Elephant's and Their Value System Dr. Caitlin O'Connell-Rodwell says they have a value system but it's also character driven. You have the confident matriarchs that help other elephants if they are in distress and then the young inexperienced ones will become nervous, scream and slap others away. It's a similar dynamic with the males, there are the aggressive brutes that others don't want to follow because they are so aggressive. The leaders are the ones who have balance a good balance between strength and also the ability to be soft. Much the same as in human culture, the elephants with the best balance are followed. To hear the rest of what Dr. Caitlin Elizabeth O'Connell-Rodwell has to say about what we can learn from elephants and why they are so important to our future, download and listen to the entire episode. Dr. Caitlin Elizabeth O'Connell-Rodwell's Bio: Dr. Caitlin O’Connell-Rodwell is a faculty member at Stanford University School of Medicine and a world-renowned expert on elephants. She has dedicated the past twenty years of her research career studying elephant communication and how their societies are constructed and maintained, resulting in numerous scientific publications.

⭐ REALITY HACK:  Using the Quantum Matrix and the Work of U.S. Anderson

⭐Want More Double Your Energy Field (FREE GIFT Mp3) - https://vy371.isrefer.com/go/youtube/ ☎ JOIN US DAILY: https://vy371.isrefer.com/go/youtube/ **HAPPENING DAILY - LIVE help LIVE INTERVIEWS + Help (Press *2 for Help): About U.S. Anderson: Uell Stanley Andersen was a successful self-help author in the 1950s and 1960s. Once a professional football player, he had a number of careers including running an advertising agency, wild-catting for oil, logging at the Columbia Sawmill, and acting as a gunnery officer on a destroyer escort. Born in the USA of Norwegian parentage, U. S. Andersen developed his inspiring, dynamic philosophy during a very active life. He learned about the psychology of winning when he was a football great. In World War II he served as a Naval officer and in the heat of battle learned that evil is the great illusion and that sin is error. It was in Mary Baker Eddy's book "Science and Health" that he first glimpsed these great truths, and he later quoted from her book in some of his own metaphysical writings. In later years as a successful Los Angeles businessman, he learned that the secret of success is to create rather than to compete. As well as the Christian Science writings of Mary Baker Eddy, Andersen also studied the mystical teachings and philosophies of Emmanuel Swedenborg, of the American "sleeping prophet", Edgar Cayce, of the celebrated Scottish spiritualist Daniel Dunglas Home, of philosopher Jacob Boehme, and the poetry of William Blake and Edward Carpenter, among others, and his own belief system was in effect a synthesis of the spiritual and mystical teachings of these writers. Jacob Boehme stated that when he was working he was the helpless tool of some power other than his normal surface mind, and Andersen clearly believed that some area of mental or spiritual existence, of immensely heightened perception, exists beyond and above man's surface personality and mind. His concept of Reality as explained in his various books is very much inline with New Thought teachings: "Universal Mind is a vast and all-encompassing mental and spiritual being in whom all things and events exist. The principal quality of this Mind is that it is just one, infinite in size, eternal in scope, and nothing exists outside It. It is an enormous sea of consciousness, pervading all, supporting all, and individual consciousness grows out of It. All things are made from It; It is rock, sea, bird, beast, man. All things in their true essence, then, are mental, or spiritual, and the rock itself is not a rock at all but merely an example of enclosed or restricted consciousness. Awareness is in the rock. Universal Mind is there." (The Secret of Secrets, 1958.) An articulate spokesman for mystical patriotism — the spiritual meaning of America — he was an unforgettable lecturer; and his insights into ecology led to the founding of his Atlantis University in Newport, Oregon, from where he taught his own brand of mysticism. He published under the names U.S. Andersen and Uell S. Andersen. He wrote the screenplay for the movie “The Charlatans.” His short story Turn Ever so Quickly was included in Houghton Mifflin's anthology The Best American Short Stories of 1963. Non-fiction Works The Key to Power and Personal Peace (1954) Secret of Secrets (1958) Success-Cybernetics: Practical Applications of Human-Cybernetics (1970) Three Magic Words (1972) Magic in Your Mind (1975) Greatest Power in the Universe (1976) The Secret Power of the Pyramids (1977) Uell Stanley Andersen's books describe methods of attaining personal peace, a positive attitude and success in a clearcut, easy to understand way. They handle deep spiritual truths in a simple way with an absolute minimum of metaphysical jargon. Andersen's philosophy is very enlightened (and enlightening) and transcends the borders of individual philosophies and religions. We are presented with a set of ideas that are free of dogmatism. It soon becomes evident that there is no "brainwashing" involved , and that the author's conclusions are self-explanatory once you grasp them. Andersen begins with the premise "that man's consciousness is God's consciousness in process of becoming," and "lays down a method by which such awareness may be used for the practical end of a richer and fuller life." Those who usually are skeptical of terms like 'spirituality' will discover that this subject can be free of all the dark and heavy mystery that we unfortunately find so often. Andersen's style of writing is uncomplicated, just as the contents of his books are not really complicated. The most difficult aspect may even lie in the simplicity of these ideas. It really makes you see what is possible in this world of "false boundaries and limits" and plants the desire to follow your heart and to never lose sight of your dreams, no matter how far-fetched they may seem.
