A Step By Step Approach To Learn Numerology
Author: Jayant Kumar
Publisher: Educreation Publishing
This book is firstly and most importantly a conversation with you dear reader. I would like to reintroduce to you the science of Numerology. It does not predict anything which is void of hard work. It does not propagate superstition. It only takes you to a journey where every incident has a scientific and cosmic reason. Numerology prepares you for hardships to come, teaches you the ways to endure, and motivates you to keep on the journey to achieve your goals. Somehow people believe that Numerology is for those who are uneducated and practiced by those who did not really achieve anything in life. Well sorry for the bummer in advance- I am a successful Software Engineer currently working in the USA for a world renowned firm; I have a beautiful family and along with my full time job I enjoy & practice my innate passion for Vedic Astrology & Numerology. Like other educational and vocational courses Astrology has also been part of my growing up curriculum. And so the way my academic and vocational studies are coributing positively to society I thought it was time that my Vedic Astrology knowledge too should be of service to society in all positive ways. This book deals with everything basic about Numerology that you want to know about Numerology. It has in detail all kinds of calculations (mathematical) that one should do in order to find the answers. You would be surprised how easy and practical this cosmic science can be!

Ein Startup ist nicht die Miniaturausgabe eines etablierten Unternehmens, sondern eine temporäre, flexible Organisation auf der Suche nach einem nachhaltigen Geschäftsmodell: Das ist die zentrale Erkenntnis, die dem "Handbuch für Startups" zugrundeliegt. Es verbindet den Lean-Ansatz, Prinzipien des Customer Development sowie Konzepte wie Design Thinking und (Rapid) Prototyping zu einem umfassenden Vorgehensmodell, mit dem sich aus Ideen und Innovationen tragfähige Geschäftsmodelle entwickeln lassen. Lean Startup & Customer Development: Der Lean-Ansatz für Startups basiert, im Unterschied zum klassischen Vorgehen, nicht auf einem starren Businessplan, der drei Jahre lang unverändert umzusetzen ist, sondern auf einem beweglichen Modell, das immer wieder angepasst wird. Sämtliche Bestandteile der Planung – von den Produkteigenschaften über die Zielgruppen bis hin zum Vertriebsmodell – werden als Hypothesen gesehen, die zu validieren bzw. zu falsifizieren sind. Erst nachdem sie im Austausch mit den potenziellen Kunden bestätigt wurden und nachhaltige Verkäufe möglich sind, verlässt das Startup seine Suchphase und widmet sich der Umsetzung und Skalierung seines Geschäftsmodells. Der große Vorteil: Fehlannahmen werden erheblich früher erkannt – nämlich zu einem Zeitpunkt, an dem man noch die Gelegenheit hat, Änderungen vorzunehmen. Damit erhöhen sich die Erfolgsaussichten beträchtlich. Für den Praxiseinsatz: Sämtliche Schritte werden in diesem Buch detailliert beschrieben und können anhand der zahlreichen Checklisten nachvollzogen werden. Damit ist das Handbuch ein wertvoller Begleiter und ein umfassendes Nachschlagewerk für Gründerinnen & Gründer. Von deutschen Experten begleitet: Die deutsche Ausgabe des international erfolgreichen Handbuchs entstand mit fachlicher Unterstützung von Prof. Dr. Nils Högsdal und Entrepreneur Daniel Bartel, die auch ein deutsches Vorwort sowie sieben Fallstudien aus dem deutschsprachigen Raum beisteuern.

A generally acknowledged characteristic of modern life, namely the temporalization of experience, inextricable from our intensified experience of contingency and difference, has until now remained largely outside psychology's purview. Wherever questions about the development, structure, and function of the concept of time have been posed - for example by Piaget and other founders of genetic structuralism - they have been concerned predominantly with concepts of "physical," chronometrical time, and related concepts (e.g., "velocity"). All the contributions to the present volume attempt to close this gap. A larger number are especially interested in the narration of stories. Overviews of the relevant literature, as well as empirical case studies, appear alongside theoretical and methodological reflections. Most contributions refer to specifically historical phenomena and meaning-constructions. Some touch on the subjects of biographical memory and biographical constructions of reality. Of all the various affinities between the contributions collected here, the most important is their consistent attention to issues of the constitution and representation of temporal experience.

Design and develop advanced computer vision projects using OpenCV with Python About This Book Program advanced computer vision applications in Python using different features of the OpenCV library Practical end-to-end project covering an important computer vision problem All projects in the book include a step-by-step guide to create computer vision applications Who This Book Is For This book is for intermediate users of OpenCV who aim to master their skills by developing advanced practical applications. Readers are expected to be familiar with OpenCV's concepts and Python libraries. Basic knowledge of Python programming is expected and assumed. What You Will Learn Generate real-time visual effects using different filters and image manipulation techniques such as dodging and burning Recognize hand gestures in real time and perform hand-shape analysis based on the output of a Microsoft Kinect sensor Learn feature extraction and feature matching for tracking arbitrary objects of interest Reconstruct a 3D real-world scene from 2D camera motion and common camera reprojection techniques Track visually salient objects by searching for and focusing on important regions of an image Detect faces using a cascade classifier and recognize emotional expressions in human faces using multi-layer peceptrons (MLPs) Recognize street signs using a multi-class adaptation of support vector machines (SVMs) Strengthen your OpenCV2 skills and learn how to use new OpenCV3 features In Detail OpenCV is a native cross platform C++ Library for computer vision, machine learning, and image processing. It is increasingly being adopted in Python for development. OpenCV has C++/C, Python, and Java interfaces with support for Windows, Linux, Mac, iOS, and Android. Developers using OpenCV build applications to process visual data; this can include live streaming data from a device like a camera, such as photographs or videos. OpenCV offers extensive libraries with over 500 functions This book demonstrates how to develop a series of intermediate to advanced projects using OpenCV and Python, rather than teaching the core concepts of OpenCV in theoretical lessons. Instead, the working projects developed in this book teach the reader how to apply their theoretical knowledge to topics such as image manipulation, augmented reality, object tracking, 3D scene reconstruction, statistical learning, and object categorization. By the end of this book, readers will be OpenCV experts whose newly gained experience allows them to develop their own advanced computer vision applications. Style and approach This book covers independent hands-on projects that teach important computer vision concepts like image processing and machine learning for OpenCV with multiple examples.
