This selection of a hundred of O.Henry's succinct tales displays the range, humour and humanity of a perennially popular short-story writer. Here Henry gives a richly colourful and exuberantly entertaining panorama of social life, ranging from thieves to tycoons, from the streets of New York to the prairies of Texas. These stories are famed for their 'trick endings' or 'twists in the tail': repeatedly the plot twirls adroitly, compounding ironies. Indeed, O.Henry's cunning plots surpass those of the ingenious rogues he creates. His style is genial, lively and witty, displaying a virtuoso's command of language and allusion. This great collection offers the reader delights for the mind, imagination and emotions.
Feature selection is a term commonly used in data mining to describe the tools and techniques available for reducing inputs to a manageable size for processing and analysis. Feature selection implies not only cardinality reduction, which means imposing an arbitrary or predefined cutoff on the number of attributes that can be considered when building a model, but also the choice of attributes, meaning that either the analyst or the modeling tool actively selects or discards attributes based on their usefulness for analysis. “Feature selection methods best Practices” is the mast reference that practitioners and researchers have long been seeking. It is also the obvious choice for academic and research scholars.

View selection is important in many data-intensive systems e.g., commercial database and data warehousing systems to improve query performance. The view selection problem is one of the most complex problem solving: a NP-hard problem. In a distributed environment, the problem becomes more challenging. Indeed, it includes another issue which is to decide on which computer nodes the selected views should be materialized. The principal objective of this manuscript is to provide a novel and efficient approach to address the view selection problem. For this purpose, we designed a solution using constraint programming which is known to be efficient for the resolution of NP-hard problems and a powerful method for modeling and solving combinatorial optimization problems. Constraint programming is a general framework which relies on a combination of techniques that deal with reasoning. To solve a given problem by means of constraint programming, the problem must be represented as a constraint satisfaction problem. This part of the problem solving is called modeling. Then, the resolution of the modeled problem is performed automatically by the constraint solver in the solving stage.

Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. Though he did not speak English fluently until his twenties, he was a master stylist, both lush and precise, who brought a non-English sensibility into English literature. Tales of Hearsay is a posthumous collection of four stories, published in 1911, the year after Conrad died, including The Tale which is considered to be the one of his best short stories.

Originally serialized in the San Francisco Chronicle, Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City (1978), More Tales of the City (1980), and Further Tales of the City (1982) afforded a mainstream audience of millions its first exposure to straight and gay characters experiencing on equal terms the follies of urban life. Among the cast of this groundbreaking saga are the lovelorn residents of 28 Barbary Lane: the bewildered but aspiring Mary Ann Singleton, the libidinous Brian Hawkins; Mona Ramsey, still in a sixties trance, Michael "Mouse" Tolliver, forever in bright-eyed pursuit of Mr. Right; and their marijuana-growing landlady, the indefatigable Mrs. Madrigal. Hurdling barriers both social and sexual, Maupin leads them through heartbreak and triumph, through nail-biting terrors and gleeful coincidences. The result is a glittering and addictive comedy of manners that continues to beguile new generations of readers.
