'Be of good comfort, Master Ridley, and play the man: we shall this day light such a candle by God's grace in England, as, I trust, shall never be put out.' Hugh Latimer's famous words of consolation to Nicholas Ridley as they are both about to be burnt alive for heresy come from John Foxe's magisterial Acts and Monuments, popularly known as the Book of Martyrs. This vast collection of unforgettable accounts of religious persecution exerted as great an influence on early modern England and New England as the Bible and the Book of Common Prayer. It contains many stirring stories of the apprehension, interrogation, imprisonment, and execution of alleged heretics. The narratives not only attest to the fortitude of individuals who suffered for their faith not many years before the birth of Shakespeare, but they also constitute exciting tales filled with graphic details and verbal wit. This modernized selection also includes some of the famous woodcuts that illustrated the original text, as well as providing a comprehensive introduction to Foxe's life and times and the martyrology narrative.

But, their plan goes awry as they come face-to-face with urban leader Raccoon (Liam Neeson). After a series of unfortunate collisions, Surly is banished from the park leaving Buddy to fend for himself.

In 'The Any Bully' (2006) Lucas Nickle (Zach Tyler) is a ten-year-old boy whose family has just moved to a new town, and Lucas isn't enjoying it much. He hasn't made any friends yet, his big sister ignores him and his parents are occupied with their upcoming vacation to Mexico. To make matters worse, the local bully has targeted Lucas and is making his life miserable. After finding a large colony of ants in his yard, Lucas takes out his frustrations by stomping, drowning, and burying the bugs, not realising that the ants see him as a threat to their safety and aren't about to take his attacks lying down. Zoc (Nicolas Cage), the wizard ant, creates a formula that shrinks Lucas to the size of an insect, and the tiny boy is brought before the leader of the Ant Council and the Queen of the Colony (Meryl Streep) to answer for his crimes against the ants. Showing compassion, the Queen sentences Lucas not to death, but to live among them to see how difficult their circumstances can be.

He is immediately attracted to Cordelia (Evan Rachel Wood), the fish of his dreams. There's just one problem - Troy (Donal Logue), the meanest shark in the ocean, who not only patrols the reef keeping its community in fear of becoming his next meal, but also has his eye on Cordelia and wants her for himself. Pi must join up with his new group of friends and try and outwit Troy and his henchmen, save the reef and win Cordelia.
An R Companion to Applied Regression is a broad introduction to the R statistical computing environment in the context of applied regression analysis. John Fox and Sanford Weisberg provide a step-by-step guide to using the free statistical software R, an emphasis on integrating statistical computing in R with the practice of data analysis, coverage of generalized linear models, and substantial web-based support materials. The Third Edition has been reorganized and includes a new chapter on mixed-effects models, new and updated data sets, and a de-emphasis on statistical programming, while retaining a general introduction to basic R programming. The authors have substantially updated both the car and effects packages for R for this edition, introducing additional capabilities and making the software more consistent and easier to use. They also advocate an everyday data-analysis workflow that encourages reproducible research. To this end, they provide coverage of RStudio, an interactive development environment for R that allows readers to organize and document their work in a simple and intuitive fashion, and then easily share their results with others. Also included is coverage of R Markdown, showing how to create documents that mix R commands with explanatory text.
"I picked up this book soon after making a commitment to Christ. At
first I was shocked by the images of Christians suffering and dying
for their faith. But soon I was drawn into the accounts of how
these ordinary men and women--no different from you or me--could
face every kind of opposition rather than deny their Lord. Reading
their stories marked me and helped me resolve to follow Christ no
matter what the cost."
John Fox s A Mathematical Primer for Social Statistics covers many often ignored yet important topics in mathematics and mathematical statistics. This text provides readers with the foundation on which an understanding of applied statistics rests.
- Covers matrices, linear algebra, and vector geometry
. Discusses basic differential and integral calculus
. Focuses on probability and statistical estimation
. Develops by way of illustration the seminal statistical method of linear least-squares regression
This book is ideal for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers in the social sciences who need to understand and use relatively advanced statistical methods but whose mathematical preparation for this work is insufficient.

John Foxe (1516-1587) es reconocido como uno de los mas importantes historiadores cristianos. Exilado por las persecuciones habidas en Inglaterra durante el reinado de Maria la Sanguinaria, a su regreso, despues de la muerte de la reina, publico su famoso Libro de los martires, una obra que causo tal impacto en la sociedad inglesa de la epoca, que, hasta la aparicion de El peregrino de Bunyan en 1678, los puritanos no tenian otra lectura que la Biblia y el Libro de los martires. Muchos autores, como Douglas Campbell y Henry Morley, creen que sirvio para moldear el caracter nacional y el espiritu de libertad en America, calificandolo como 'un monumento que marca el creciente poder de un deseo de libertad espiritual, de desafio a todas aquellas formas que apagan la conciencia y que encadenan el pensamiento'. El libro ampliado despues de la muerte de Foxe es un testimonio historico de las persecuciones desencadenadas contra los verdaderos cristianos. La edicion espanola presenta una recopilacion completa de la vida y testimonio de los mas insignes martires primitivos y de los martires protestantes, desde los tiempos de los apostoles hasta las misiones de finales del siglo XIX."

Visionary, explorer, researcher, diplomat, humanist-Fridtjof Nansen was no ordinary man. Nansen was a dedicated scientist who made an outstanding contribution to marine zoology and oceanography, an audacious adventurer who pushed our knowledge of the Arctic to new frontiers, and an indefatigable savior of human beings displaced by conflict. As a young man Nansen led two successful polar expeditions and became a national hero, participating in the birth pangs of his country-Norway. As a respected international elder statesman he began a new career in 1919 by bringing home hundreds of thousands of prisoners-of-war from the remotest corners of Europe and Siberia. He created the "Nansen Passport" for stateless people under his responsibility and sought to give the Armenian people a secure homeland. For his efforts in favor of prisoners of war, famine relief and Russian refugees, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1922.
This book provides a general introduction to the R Commander graphical user interface (GUI) to R for readers who are unfamiliar with R. It is suitable for use as a supplementary text in a basic or intermediate-level statistics course. It is not intended to replace a basic or other statistics text but rather to complement it, although it does promote sound statistical practice in the examples. The book should also be useful to individual casual or occasional users of R for whom the standard command-line interface is an obstacle. tinyurl.com/RcmdrBook The site includes data files used in the book and an errata list. http://socserv.mcmaster.ca/jfox/Books/RCommander/Writing-Rcmdr-Plugins.pdf Writing R Commander Plug-in Packages
