Quantum-Touch Core Transformation

A New Way to Heal and Alter Reality

Quantum-Touch Core Transformation

Quantum-Touch teaches techniques for focusing and amplifying life-force energy (chi) through simple breathing and body-awareness exercises. This practice stimulates our biological intelligence to promote healing in everything from major immune disorders to chronic pain to emotional disturbances. A new addition to Alain Herriott’s successful series that includes Supercharging Quantum-Touch, this manual of advanced techniques is geared toward those who already know the basics of Quantum-Touch or have backgrounds in general energy healing, Chinese disciplines such as tai chi and qi gong, or the yogic and dance disciplines. Techniques are presented through step-by-step exercises that facilitate the energy flow through both teacher and patient. This energy transference encourages bone alignment, stress reduction, and deep and lasting healing. Quantum-Touch Core Transformation shows how to truly experience oneself (emotionally, spiritually, physically) and to begin to open consciousness and enter a whole new level of being. Written in the trademark thoughtful, engaging style of Quantum-Touch authors, this book is an authoritative resource for any alternative-health professional involved in serious bodywork.

Core-Chasing Algorithms for the Eigenvalue Problem

Core-Chasing Algorithms for the Eigenvalue Problem

Eigenvalue computations are ubiquitous in science and engineering. John Francis’s implicitly shifted QR algorithm has been the method of choice for small to medium sized eigenvalue problems since its invention in 1959. This book presents a new view of this classical algorithm. While Francis’s original procedure chases bulges, the new version chases core transformations, which allows the development of fast algorithms for eigenvalue problems with a variety of special structures. This also leads to a fast and backward stable algorithm for computing the roots of a polynomial by solving the companion matrix eigenvalue problem. The authors received a SIAM Outstanding Paper prize for this work. This book will be of interest to researchers in numerical linear algebra and their students.

A Transformation Approach to Smarter Core Banking

A Transformation Approach to Smarter Core Banking

The extensive experience brought by IBM to core banking transformation indicates that the most successful transformation approach is a progressive one in which modernization is a process that incorporates flexibility and business acumen, and can adapt as requirements change. Creating a componentized architecture that separates key constructs and their assets from the core transaction engine is a critical factor in achieving a successful transformation. Such a scenario makes the architecture the central concern and allows a bank to benefit from the necessary flexibility and efficiency. After the core architecture is established, the bank can address each requirement and modification on a case-by-case basis by choosing from custom and packaged options. Further, the core transformation method outlined in this IBM® RedguideTM publication allows a bank to make deployment decisions based purely on business benefits by using a progressive program that delivers value at each step of the process, and every step can be tailored to keep pace as needs and requirements change. Finally, this method ensures that the overall transformation process remains in line with evolving business objectives.

Philadelphia Behavioral Health Services Transformation

Practice Guidelines for Recovery and Resilience Oriented Treatment

Philadelphia Behavioral Health Services Transformation

Philadelphia has a long history of innovation in the behavioral health field, including the work of Dr. Benjamin Rush (1746-1813), the closing of the state hospitals in the late 1980s and the formation of Community Behavioral Health (CBH), the nation’s largest city-controlled managed behavioral healthcare organization. This document represents the next step in the evolution of Philadelphia’s efforts to create a more effective and efficient system of care. This system is based on the latest thinking in the field, empirical evidence and the preferences of the individuals and families receiving services. In keeping with the comprehensive system-transformation efforts in the health care arena, the guidelines outlined in this document are meant to help providers implement services and supports that promote resilience, recovery and wellness in children, youth, adults and families. They apply to all treatment providers and all levels of care. They are not intended to encapsulate all possible services or supports that promote recovery and resilience. The strategies in this document are examples of activities and services that providers can implement. These strategies are not intended to be a laundry list of new activities that must now be incorporated into all service settings. The suggested strategies are examples of the kinds of activities that can help organizations achieve these goals. These strategies should be modified and adopted based on the preferences, cultures and needs of people being served and the community context in which they live. The practice guidelines have direct implications for staff in all roles. They are framed by the notions of recovery and resilience. This framework should be the basis for service delivery.

Input/Output Intensive Massively Parallel Computing

Language Support, Automatic Parallelization, Advanced Optimization, and Runtime Systems

Input/Output Intensive Massively Parallel Computing

Massively parallel processing is currently the most promising answer to the quest for increased computer performance. This has resulted in the development of new programming languages and programming environments and has stimulated the design and production of massively parallel supercomputers. The efficiency of concurrent computation and input/output essentially depends on the proper utilization of specific architectural features of the underlying hardware. This book focuses on development of runtime systems supporting execution of parallel code and on supercompilers automatically parallelizing code written in a sequential language. Fortran has been chosen for the presentation of the material because of its dominant role in high-performance programming for scientific and engineering applications.

Forecasting Thailand's Core Inflation

Forecasting Thailand's Core Inflation

This paper develops an approach for forecasting in Thailand core inflation. The key innovation is to anchor the projections derived from the short-term time-series properties of core inflation to its longer-run evolution. This involves combining a short-term model, which attempts to distill the forecasting power of a variety of monthly indicators purely on goodness-of-fit criteria, with an equilibrium-correction model that pins down the convergence of core inflation to its longer-run structural determinants. The result is a promising model for forecasting Thai core inflation over horizons up to 10, 24, and 55 months, based on a root mean-squared error criterion as well as a mean absolute error criterion.
