In the 1930s, as evil begins to envelope Europe, Karl Rothstein is born in Austria. As his life unfolds, he watches as Hitler's armies visit his kindergarten, order his family from their home, and arrest his father. During Kristallnacht - the night of broken glass - Karl witnesses events that will later be considered by historians to be a dress rehearsal for the Holocaust. Before World War II is over, Karl will lose his brother and grandparents, and spend years in hiding. This is the true story of one man's pilgrimage to freedom - a journey that began on the day he reported with his family to the train station, where they were to board the train to a concentration camp. Under the watchful eye of a guardian angel, Karl eventually made his way to Israel and the U.S. where he was, at last, free to live his life openly as a Jew.

The Institute of Technology Years (1935-2010) [Soft2]
Author: Thomas J. Misa,Robert W. Seidel
"I was fortunate in having an instructor at the University of Minnesota who was looking after me," recalled one electrical engineering graduate of 1949. "When I said, 'What's next?' he said, 'If I were you, I'd just go down the street here to Engineering Research Associates, and I'd think you'd like what they're doing there'." That was Seymour Cray, and his computer designs helped create a notable computer industry in the Twin Cities. Another Minnesota graduate, Earl Bakken (class of 1948), founded Medtronic and the core of a nationally renowned medical devices industry. For 75 years the Institute of Technology, now the College of Science and Engineering, has pioneered in research, innovation, and technology transfer to Minnesota and the world. The people behind this unique institution are revealed in this concise illustrated history, prepared by its own team of professional historians.

Calculus with Vectors grew out of a strong need for a beginning calculus textbook for undergraduates who intend to pursue careers in STEM fields. The approach introduces vector-valued functions from the start, emphasizing the connections between one-variable and multi-variable calculus. The text includes early vectors and early transcendentals and includes a rigorous but informal approach to vectors. Examples and focused applications are well presented along with an abundance of motivating exercises. The approaches taken to topics such as the derivation of the derivatives of sine and cosine, the approach to limits and the use of "tables" of integration have been modified from the standards seen in other textbooks in order to maximize the ease with which students may comprehend the material. Additionally, the material presented is intentionally non-specific to any software or hardware platform in order to accommodate the wide variety and rapid evolution of tools used. Technology is referenced in the text and is required for a good number of problems.

Ivy League schools on average reject some 90 percent of applicants. But there is another way to get into the top colleges in the United States—the back gate—that will still see motivated students come out the front gate with an Ivy League diploma. This book is the plan B that offers you an alternative set of keys to seven of the Ivy League universities: Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Pennsylvania (Penn), and Brown. Also covered are the so-called second tier of elite universities, including Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Duke, Northwestern, and University of Virginia, among others, which have highly selective admission requirements and confer social and economic benefits on par with the traditional Ivy Leagues. From extension schools to special programs for working students to online studies, the range of back gateways is remarkable for leveling the field for students of all stripes. This book provides the little-known strategies to help you succeed in enrolling in the school of your dreams.
