A Broadway actress and her family go on a cross-country adventure during the COVID-19 shutdown Drive follows the pandemic shut-down journey of Come From Away actress Sharon Wheatley and her family from Broadway's sudden closure to when the curtains finally go back up. Along the way, Wheatley thinks back on the humor and grit of her parents and draws strength from those memories in order to confront the challenges of shepherding her family (and pets) through this unprecedented time, while making hilarious memories along the way. Drive is part travelogue, part Little Miss Sunshine, and all Broadway.

The methods of attaining great heights are frequently discussed, with many postulations propounded by pundits and individuals of phenomenal accomplishments, yet reaching the pinnacle of such heights remains ever so elusive to the masses; hence, only a select few are able to make these extraordinary strides. In Drive to Passion, Ted Obomanu chronicles the lives of a few highly accomplished individuals: • Harland Sanders, a perfectionist, who was the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC); • Winston Churchill, the vivacious and popular prime minister of Britain, who led his country to victory during the Second World War; • Joseph Kennedy, patriarch of the Kennedy clan, business mogul, and kingmaker; • Sidney Poitier, acclaimed actor and the first African-American movie star to receive an Oscar in a leading role; • Abraham Lincoln, one of the greatest presidents of the United States, responsible for the abolition of slavery; • Suze Orman, financial guru and popular TV host who epitomizes passion; • Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the United States, who accomplished this unprecedented feat despite its improbability; • Oprah Winfrey, owner of a TV network, one of the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world, and was the host and producer of one of the most popular TV shows ever. Obomanu does this to explore firsthand how these individuals were able to reach the summit of their vocations. He also turns the chronicling of these great individuals’ lives into an intriguing narrative, without compromising the lessons. Obomanu makes significant findings in this book: Passion more than anything else is responsible for success and greatness, which is self-evident in the lives of the great individuals he chronicles; to attain distinction, the quest for passion should always be centered around a niche; passion is fueled by drive, and a shift in focus from passion to the rewards of accomplishments, such as wealth, may potentially derail the attainment of success and greatness; mentors play a huge role in the accomplishment of our goals. At the conclusion of this great reading, Obomanu delves into how spirituality and personal development can greatly enhance the quest for passion and how the pursuit of passion can trigger happiness and longevity. He sums up by asserting that the aspiration of success and greatness should be driven by all the components of passion to ensure its sustainability and potential value to society.

An introduction to the analysis of electric machines, power electronic circuits, electric drive performance, and power systems This book provides students with the basic physical concepts and analysis tools needed for subsequent coursework in electric power and drive systems with a focus on Tesla’s rotating magnetic field. Organized in a flexible format, it allows instructors to select material as needed to fit their school’s power program. The first chapter covers the fundamental concepts and analytical methods that are common to power and electric drive systems. The subsequent chapters offer introductory analyses specific to electric machines, power electronic circuits, drive system performance and simulation, and power systems. In addition, this book: Provides students with an analytical base on which to build in advanced follow-on courses Examines fundamental power conversions (dc-dc, ac-dc and dc-ac), harmonics, and distortion Describes the dynamic computer simulation of a brushless dc drive to illustrate its performance with both a sinusoidal inverter voltage approximation and more realistic stator six-step drive applied voltages Includes in-chapter short problems, numerous worked examples, and end-of-chapter problems to help readers review and more fully understand each topic

Wind turbine gearboxes present major reliability issues, leading to great interest in the current development of gearless direct-drive wind energy systems. Offering high reliability, high efficiency and low maintenance, developments in these direct-drive systems point the way to the next generation of wind power, and Electrical drives for direct drive renewable energy systems is an authoritative guide to their design, development and operation. Part one outlines electrical drive technology, beginning with an overview of electrical generators for direct drive systems. Principles of electrical design for permanent magnet generators are discussed, followed by electrical, thermal and structural generator design and systems integration. A review of power electronic converter technology and power electronic converter systems for direct drive renewable energy applications is then conducted. Part two then focuses on wind and marine applications, beginning with a commercial overview of wind turbine drive systems and an introduction to direct drive wave energy conversion systems. The commercial application of these technologies is investigated via case studies on the permanent magnet direct drive generator in the Zephyros wind turbine, and the Archimedes Wave Swing (AWS) direct drive wave energy pilot plant. Finally, the book concludes by exploring the application of high-temperature superconducting machines to direct drive renewable energy systems. With its distinguished editors and international team of expert contributors, Electrical drives for direct drive renewable energy systems provides a comprehensive review of key technologies for anyone involved with or interested in the design, construction, operation, development and optimisation of direct drive wind and marine energy systems. An authorative guide to the design, development and operation of gearless direct drives Discusses the principles of electrical design for permanent magnet generators and electrical, thermal and structural generator design and systems integration Investigates the commercial applications of wind turbine drive systems

Hammer and chisel will not be needed to understand how the hard drive operates. Storage devices in computers have come a long way. Today, we observe that the mechanical hard drives are beeing replaced by SSD. However, the concept of operation of mechanical disks (eg, head, sector) will be used for new construction of disks, for a long time. The administrator will certainly need to know the sturucture of hard disk if one will have to retrieve the overwritten MBR.

Captain Hardesty and Commander Bowman must shelve their romance long enough to rescue a mining colony and their sentient spaceship, known as Candide, from the threats of a corrupt policeman and a few opportunistic thieves. Bowman shines as she deduces the fate of Candide and all inside of him pivot on a sixty year old fulcrum that calls out to a rebels rebel, a player left offstage for six decades. Bowman has the choice of survival and success or the end of her command. She chooses survival. All the while opening a new tomorrow to the newest addition to her manifest, the miner girl Piglet whose youth and vigor threaten Candide with happiness and new adventures. Black Hole Drive is a tome on hope and spins a tale of true satisfaction for those in its world. Piglet is thus launched into intrigues and art with few to guide her but the crew she has just met and the mining colony that has been her home for nearly two decades.
