really annoying problems: 1) won't wake up after sleep mode (I tried many suggestions online and the problem does not get fixed) and 2) when surfing the internet the screen suddenly dies and blue screen appears (I tried many suggestions online and found no solution for my laptop. I really regret that I bought this.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... the story as a part of religion will not love this movie, May 30, 2015

This review is from: Noah (Amazon Video)
Some people who believes the story as a part of religion will not love this movie. But the movie seems to be closer to the real aspect of the story than other religious interpretations.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Comprehensive, Reliable Reference to the Topic, November 28, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As a Ph.D. student studying network analysis, I have long been waiting for a comprehensive guide to ERGM like this. I believe, if you have ever attempted to employ ERGM in your research, you must have experienced much frustration when trying to understand the basic concepts of ERGM and its application to real data just through journal articles and a few of book chapters. Fortunately, before too late, I came to read this book and learned a lot. I got it on Monday and read it through on Tuesday. (I was indeed in need of this book). Although the book is not a perfect guide to the topic, it offers a "relatively" easy-to-understand explanation about the most advanced technique in social network analysis. Unlike other books on advanced topics, which mostly look like a patchwork-style collection of irrelevant chapters, this book is coherent throughout all the chapters in themes, structure, and terminology. One caution is needed: its readers should be familiar with intermediate level of social network analysis (A mathematically inclined mind is needed). A suggestion: if the book is equipped with detailed guides to PNet, it would be a perfect one. Although two PNet manuals are available online, they are not that useful. Conclusion: if you need to do ERGM, this book is a must.

5.0 out of 5 stars An invaluable lesson from a renowned scholar, May 20, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As a Ph.D. student specializing in social network analysis (SNA) and, thus, having read several SNA books, I would like to strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in this area. Caution: this is not a book about SNA software or tools; instead, it is about the basic concepts, their underlying social or pscyhological theories, and limitations, which reflect the most recent advancements in this field. Although some sections of the book (e.g., about psychological motivations of social networking) might be a little difficult to follow for students who are not familiar with the topic, the overall contents of the book are easy to read and understand. In particular, what I like most about this book is that the author offers a section of network resarch ethics (which is rare in other books) and, in each chapter, plenty of research directions needed to be explored. At the end of the book, the author presents ten master ideas in the social network study (e.g., homophily, social capital, etc.) as a 12-page-long summary of his book, which, as for me, seems to be the most succint, comprehensive summary about key concepts and findings of SNA up to now.

5.0 out of 5 stars An ideal type of book for CS beginners, May 8, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
While I was reading the book, I kept thinking, "why don't CS professors explain like this?" One of the author's contributions is that the book mitigates not only the difficulties most CS starters experience when trying to grasp the idea behind wonderful codes, but also the fear that the discipline is for some gifted intellectuals. The author makes readers to explore more into other algorithms. This book was the first that makes me feel introducing to my homeland people by translating this into my mother language.

My 20 month old baby really likes the table. The table and chairs seem to be perfect fit for any child who wants to play on a desk. The dest does not get dust easily and is easy to clean. The desk and chairs are so sturdy and stable that they won't fall aside, which i like most.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Really Best Buy, April 23, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I decided to buy this item for my wife who recently got iPad 2.
She's very meticulous and picky about goods.
In conclusion, she is perfectly satisfied with it, and i am also happy.
The item is made as explained in the specification.
Especially, the black color seems to be well matched with the white color of our iPad.
I think the color will also go well with the black iPad.
The case itself is slim and, thus, does not hurt the merit of the slim iPad 2.
Actually, my wife and I was considering to buy a case that come from the Apple.
But, after we searched for some time, we decided to buy this Acase case
because it is cheaper and better in design and function than others of similar features.

4.0 out of 5 stars Be patient to get it through, August 28, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Good guide to the communication research, and easy to follow.
But takes lots of time to fully understand some contents.
As a compiliation of diverse theories, the book requires you to make your own notes for consistency.
If you study communication of any sorts, it will be a great help to you. But just read it through once and hop onto another book related to the specific topic you have to dig in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not sure about functions yet, but happy to get it now, August 28, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have enjoyed the MS Office for 10 years, and have a strong addict to the 2007 version.
So, I was deep in thoughts for a month whether to buy the 2010 one.
However, I decided to try this on my new laptop computer.
Up to now(a week has passed since I purchased it), it shows good performance to the extent I am satisfied.
But, I have to wait and see till i could be fully satisfied and recommend to my friends.
So, I gave it a 4 star rating.
