Beneath Haunted Waters

The Tragic Tale of Two B-24s Lost in the Sierra Nevada Mountains during World War II

Drama. Tragedy. Irony. Unsolved mysteries. And throw in a little greed. Beneath Haunted Waters is not a ghost story; it’s not that kind of “haunted” at all. These are waters haunted by generations of people who cannot forget the story of how two B-24 Liberator bombers disappeared in 1943 and what happened to the boys on board. During the World War II years, the convention was to call young men in their late teens to their late 20s, “boys.” The boys who piloted bombers and fighter aircraft during World War II were 19 or 20 years old - barely out of their childhood. Imagine boarding a 737 today and seeing a teenager at the controls instead of a person with greying temples. That was the situation during the war. Beneath Haunted Waters is a story about that era, when children flew large airplanes equipped with enough firepower to destroy cities. And yet, boys they were, and boys they will always be. But it’s primarily a story of how they died, not in combat, but by accident. During World War II the USA lost 7100 combat aircraft and 5300 trainers, along with 15,530 pilots, crew members, and ground personnel in over 52,000 domestic accidents. These statistics don’t compare to the huge numbers of RAF, 8th Air Force, and Luftwaffe losses during the European air war but the numbers are still frightening: Between 1942-1945, US aviation losses to accidents (12,400) exceeded combat losses (4500) to the Japanese. For every plane shot down in the South Pacific there were three lost to accidents within the United States. While memoirs of those who served, histories of military and political leaders, and books about combat abound, very little has been written about the terrible toll of aviation training accidents during the war. Beneath Haunted Waters is unique because it tells this hardly known and little appreciated story. Most information on this subject is covered in official reports. It appears in a casual way in many memoirs. There are a few histories of the air war during World War II that mention aviation accidents during training or once the boys were in theater. There has been no popular, academic, or comprehensive book on the subject. I propose to cover this subject within the more personal story of what happened to the two Liberators that wound up in Huntington Lake and Hester Lake. Usually, pilots and crews of World War II aircraft were neither old enough to vote nor to drink. Many had never driven a car or taken a train ride much less been in an airplane. Nine months after enlistment they were flying the most technologically advanced, high performance, machines ever built. The same could be said for their navigation equipment and radio gear. But aviation had been around for only 40 years! Aircraft design was still in its infancy. Engines failed, pilots flew into mountains, navigators got lost, radios broke, and weather forecasts were frequently and fatally wrong.

"In October 2005, two mountaineers climbing above Mendel Glacier in the High Sierra found the mummified remains of a man in a WWII uniform, entombed in the ice. The "Frozen Airman" discovery created a media storm and a mystery that drew author Peter Stekel to investigate. What did happen to the four-man crew who perished on a routine navigation training flight in 1942, 150 miles off-course from its reported destination?..."--P. 4 of cover.

grep kurz & gut ist die erste deutschsprachige Befehlsreferenz zu grep, dem mächtigen Such- und Filterungswerkzeug unter Unix. Jeder, der sich ausführlich zu den Möglichkeiten, die in grep stecken, informieren möchte, ist mit diesem Buch bestens bedient. Er erfährt, wie viele alltägliche Aufgaben mit grep ausgeführt werden können, von der Mail-Filterung über geschicktes Log-Management bis hin zur Malware-Analyse. Der Befehl grep stellt viele verschiedene Möglichkeiten bereit, Textstrings in einer Datei oder einem Ausgabestream zu finden. Diese Flexibilität macht grep zu einem mächtigen Tool, um das Vorhandensein von Informationen in Dateien zu ermitteln. Im Allgemeinen ist der Befehl grep nur dafür gedacht, Textausgaben oder Textdateien zu durchsuchen. Sie können auch Binärdateien (oder andere Nicht-Textdateien) durchsuchen, aber das Tool ist in dem Fall eingeschränkt. Tricks zum Durchsuchen von Binärdateien mit grep (also die Verwendung von String-Befehlen) werden ebenso in grep kurz & gut aufgezeigt. Sollte der Leser bereits mit der Arbeit mit grep vertraut sein, hilft ihm grep kurz & gut dabei, seine Kenntnisse aufzufrischen und mit grep besonders effizient zu arbeiten. Für grep-Einsteiger ist das vorliegende Buch eine hervorragende Möglichkeit, grep von Grund auf zu lernen und klug anzuwenden.

Adaptive Markets

Financial Evolution at the Speed of Thought

Author: Andrew W. Lo

Publisher: Princeton University Press

ISBN: 1400887763

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 504

View: 5305

A new, evolutionary explanation of markets and investor behavior Half of all Americans have money in the stock market, yet economists can't agree on whether investors and markets are rational and efficient, as modern financial theory assumes, or irrational and inefficient, as behavioral economists believe—and as financial bubbles, crashes, and crises suggest. This is one of the biggest debates in economics and the value or futility of investment management and financial regulation hang on the outcome. In this groundbreaking book, Andrew Lo cuts through this debate with a new framework, the Adaptive Markets Hypothesis, in which rationality and irrationality coexist. Drawing on psychology, evolutionary biology, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and other fields, Adaptive Markets shows that the theory of market efficiency isn't wrong but merely incomplete. When markets are unstable, investors react instinctively, creating inefficiencies for others to exploit. Lo's new paradigm explains how financial evolution shapes behavior and markets at the speed of thought—a fact revealed by swings between stability and crisis, profit and loss, and innovation and regulation. A fascinating intellectual journey filled with compelling stories, Adaptive Markets starts with the origins of market efficiency and its failures, turns to the foundations of investor behavior, and concludes with practical implications—including how hedge funds have become the Galápagos Islands of finance, what really happened in the 2008 meltdown, and how we might avoid future crises. An ambitious new answer to fundamental questions in economics, Adaptive Markets is essential reading for anyone who wants to know how markets really work.
