Amanda Gorman Book

Amanda Gorman Book

University Press returns with another short and captivating biography of one of history's most compelling figures, Amanda Gorman. Amanda Gorman was born on March 7, 1998, in Los Angeles, California. She and her twin sister were raised by a single mother - a teacher - who restricted the young Amanda's access to television and inspired in her a love for reading, writing, and language. The young Gorman was a self-described "weird child" who had a speech impediment and preferred to read books while other children her age were playing on the playground. Inspired by her mother and by a host of personal heroes that included Maya Angelou and Malala Yousafzai, Amanda excelled in school, found her voice, started a nonprofit, became a youth delegate for the United Nations, published her first poetry book at age sixteen, earned a college scholarship, graduated from Harvard University, and became the first person ever to be named National Youth Poet Laureate. On January 20, 2021, Amanda Gorman, at age twenty-two, became the youngest poet in American history to read at a presidential inauguration. Just two weeks after an angry mob had stormed the United States Capitol Building, Gorman, wearing a sunny yellow coat and a bright red headband, approached the microphone in front of that same building and reminded a divided and battered nation that "...there is always light, if only we're brave enough to see it. If only we're brave enough to be it." This short book tells the intensely human story of a woman who is changing the world in a way that no one else can.

Programming Challenges

Programming Challenges

There are many distinct pleasures associated with computer programming. Craftsmanship has its quiet rewards, the satisfaction that comes from building a useful object and making it work. Excitement arrives with the flash of insight that cracks a previously intractable problem. The spiritual quest for elegance can turn the hacker into an artist. There are pleasures in parsimony, in squeezing the last drop of performance out of clever algorithms and tight coding. The games, puzzles, and challenges of problems from international programming competitions are a great way to experience these pleasures while improving your algorithmic and coding skills. This book contains over 100 problems that have appeared in previous programming contests, along with discussions of the theory and ideas necessary to attack them. Instant online grading for all of these problems is available from two WWW robot judging sites. Combining this book with a judge gives an exciting new way to challenge and improve your programming skills. This book can be used for self-study, for teaching innovative courses in algorithms and programming, and in training for international competition. The problems in this book have been selected from over 1,000 programming problems at the Universidad de Valladolid online judge. The judge has ruled on well over one million submissions from 27,000 registered users around the world to date. We have taken only the best of the best, the most fun, exciting, and interesting problems available.

Till The End

Till The End

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • A raw, compelling memoir of baseball, family, fame, addiction, and recovery, by one of the most beloved baseball players of his generation “Beautifully rendered . . . Readers and fans will be rooting for him to enter the Hall of Fame and rooting even harder for him to stay sober.”—The Wall Street Journal How does it feel to be born with enormous gifts, in a life shadowed by tragedy? What does it mean when the gift that opens the world for us is not enough to stop us from losing the things we love? And what new gifts do we find in that loss? Baseball had been CC Sabathia’s life since he was a kid in gritty, baseball-obsessed Vallejo, California. He was a star by the time he was a preteen and a professional athlete when he was still a teenager. Everything he knew about how to be a person—an adult, a husband and father, a leader—he learned in rhythm with the baseball season, the every-fifth-day high-intensity spotlight of a starting pitcher, all while dealing with one of the sport’s most turbulent eras: racism in a sport with diminishing black presence; the era of performance-enhancing drugs; and the increasing tension between high-value contracts and sports owners who moved players around like game pieces. But his biggest struggle was with his own body and mind: Buoyed his whole life by talent and a fiery competitive spirit, CC found himself dealing with the steady and eventually alarming breakdown of his own body and his growing addiction in a world that encouraged and enabled it. Till the End is the thrilling memoir of one of the most beloved players in the game, a veteran star of the sport’s marquee team during its latest championship era. It’s also a book about baseball—about the ins and outs of its most important and technical position and its evolution in this volatile era. But woven within it is the moving, universal story of resilience and mortality and discovering what matters.
