A rogue archaeologist is trapped in a Grand Canyon cave as a conspiracy theory comes to life in this "take no prisoners" survival thriller that puts our hero up against impossible odds (Preston & Child). Not all secrets are meant to be found. Nolan Moore is a rogue archaeologist hosting a documentary series derisively dismissed by the "real" experts, but beloved of conspiracy theorists. Nolan sets out to retrace the steps of an explorer from 1909 who claimed to have discovered a mysterious cavern high up in the ancient rock of the Grand Canyon. And, for once, he may have actually found what he seeks. Then the trip takes a nasty turn, and the cave begins turning against them in mysterious ways. Nolan's story becomes one of survival against seemingly impossible odds. The only way out is to answer a series of intriguing questions: What is this strange cave? How has it remained hidden for so long? And what secret does it conceal that made its last visitors attempt to seal it forever?

NAMED A BEST MYSTERY/THRILLER OF THE YEAR BY PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, A BEST MYSTERY/THRILLER OF THE MONTH BY POPSUGAR, AND A MOST ANTICIPATED READ OF THE YEAR BY CRIMEREADS Winner of the Goncourt Prize and now an international phenomenon, this dizzying, whip-smart novel blends crime, fantasy, sci-fi, and thriller as it plumbs the mysteries surrounding a Paris-New York flight. Who would we be if we had made different choices? Told that secret, left that relationship, written that book? We all wonder—the passengers of Air France 006 will find out. In their own way, they were all living double lives when they boarded the plane: Blake, a respectable family man who works as a contract killer. Slimboy, a Nigerian pop star who uses his womanizing image to hide that he’s gay. Joanna, a Black American lawyer pressured to play the good old boys’ game to succeed with her Big Pharma client. Victor Miesel, a critically acclaimed yet largely obscure writer suddenly on the precipice of global fame. About to start their descent to JFK, they hit a shockingly violent patch of turbulence, emerging on the other side to a reality both perfectly familiar and utterly strange. As it charts the fallout of this logic-defying event, The Anomaly takes us on a journey from Lagos and Mumbai to the White House and a top-secret hangar. In Hervé Le Tellier’s most ambitious work yet, high literature follows the lead of a bingeable Netflix series, drawing on the best of genre fiction from “chick lit” to mystery, while also playfully critiquing their hallmarks. An ingenious, timely variation on the doppelgänger theme, it taps into the parts of ourselves that elude us most.

Humanity wasn't always doomed. There was a time when people were actually pretty decent. Two hundred years ago, every person on earth was connected through the stream of AVA: a hyper-advanced artificial intelligence system designed to give the world a fresh start. AVA cleansed humanity and rebuilt it on the ideals of progress and peace. With their pasts bleached and their futures filtered out, humans advanced in a startling leap. They thrived in the new world that AVA created. Then the virus struck. Now, after a centuries' long apocalypse, humanity has returned to its violent roots. The few ragged settlements that remain fight each other for what little the Nothing provides, and will do whatever it takes to stay alive. Charlize Smith doesn't know it yet, but her hometown might be the last civilized place on earth. Born defective and forced to undergo a slew of dangerous experiments, Charlie dreams of the day when she can finally set out on her own. But when a tragedy pushes her to the edge, she's arrested and thrown onto a truck bound for the Nothing –– where she'll probably die.

...The Anomaly Dialogist is simply about poetry & thought. ...Poetry ....Poetry is that moment of truth. A couple of words that characteristically challenges what you once felt about yesterday. An ambitiously well versed amount of sentences that puts life in a unique yet particular perspective. Sometimes a poetic moment ropes you in the beginning. Other times poetry tends to cleanse you of what no longer fundamentally matters & opens up the infinite possibility of what does. Poetry is like that first breath of air a baby takes on the eve of it’s birth & the last ( of the five senses) that leaves your body when its time for you to die. Take that journey through an eclipse ( which we all call ….LIFE ) & experience it all with each poetic syllable. Prose literally has distinct possibilities. Follow me for more... & ..Thought ....Thoughts are simpatico ..If you wanted to be honest short essential moments of elated time that tend to transpire right in front of you. What feels like nothing in all actuality it is a flutter of images that with a word or two eventually (sort of) comes to life. Thought not only provides a doorway into what was, what could or what maybe should be… but it allows you to exit your current reality. A thought gives way to climbing the walls of imagination, capturing the creativity of the mind & tasting the foundation of the alphabet. Come think with me.. ...

Powerhouse social media influencer and online marketing and business development expert offers inspiration and hands-on tools for readers to follow their dreams and understand why not fitting in is their biggest asset. Bringing your whole, true self to your work, including your body, soul, and spirit--and allowing your faith to be part of your day in your workplace--lets you express your fullest potential and be as successful as possible in the world. Sandi Krakowski found early on that, as she put it, she had "too much God" in her for the workplace and "too much money and business" in her for churches. That made her an anomaly, but it also unlocked her greatest potential: if nobody was doing it her way, she'd find a new way to do things. Her success has been proven time and again in the companies she's founded and sold, and in the groundbreaking social media marketing she's done that engages with her followers to where they all plainly feel they know her intimately. Her current business, A Real Change, inspires people to live their fullest, most successful life, on all levels. In her new book, Sandi will offer all the inspiration and the real, hands-on tools to inspire everyone to follow their dreams, fulfil their real potential, and not leave any part of their soul or spirit behind them on this workplace journey. Every chapter is jam-packed with inspirational stories in her inimitable voice, exploring the ways that each of us can have an impact every day, with tips, takeaways, and "Anomaly Actions" to spur every reader to take power in their own work and spiritual lives right away. Sandi shows on every page how to break past those doubting voices, both in your own head and out in the world, bucking the system and learning to find the absolutely limitless growth that comes from choosing faith over fear.

Paradigm Shifts are an integral part of the scientific process. The shifts however, are not only applicable to the scientific world. The thesis underlying "The Anomaly Hypothesis" supposes that the processes behind scientific paradigms (from inception to revolution) are applicable to other disciplines. From Economics and Finance, to Society and the Arts, all fields are subject to the framework developed by Thomas Kuhn in his notable "Structure of Scientific Revolutions". Through a breakdown of Kuhn's model and an account of the history leading up to the 2008 Global Financial Crisis, the thesis will demonstrate that our current Economic and Financial models are riddled with anomalies; anomalies miring our financial system, manifesting themselves in crises with ever increasing intensity and frequency. The anomalies point to an urgent need to revolutionize our outdated financial and economic models. Could this century bear witness to fundamental shifts within our markets, our society, and our form of governance?

The Feynman path integrals are becoming increasingly important in the applications of quantum mechanics and field theory. The path integral formulation of quantum anomalies, i.e. the quantum breaking of certain symmetries, can now cover all the known quantum anomalies in a coherent manner. In this book the authors provide an introduction to the path integral method in quantum field theory and its applications to the analyses of quantum anomalies. No previous knowledge of field theory beyond advanced undergraduate quantum mechanics is assumed. The book provides the first coherent introductory treatment of the path integral formulation of chiral and Weyl anomalies, with applications to gauge theory in two and four dimensions, conformal field theory and string theory. Explicit and elementary path integral calculations of most of the quantum anomalies covered are given. The conceptual basis of the path integral bosonization in two-dimensional theory, which may have applications to condensed matter theory, for example, is clarified. The book also covers the recent interesting developments in the treatment of fermions and chiral anomalies in lattice gauge theory.

This thesis proposes machine learning methods for understanding scenes via behaviour analysis and online anomaly detection in video. The book introduces novel Bayesian topic models for detection of events that are different from typical activities and a novel framework for change point detection for identifying sudden behavioural changes. Behaviour analysis and anomaly detection are key components of intelligent vision systems. Anomaly detection can be considered from two perspectives: abnormal events can be defined as those that violate typical activities or as a sudden change in behaviour. Topic modelling and change-point detection methodologies, respectively, are employed to achieve these objectives. The thesis starts with the development of learning algorithms for a dynamic topic model, which extract topics that represent typical activities of a scene. These typical activities are used in a normality measure in anomaly detection decision-making. The book also proposes a novel anomaly localisation procedure. In the first topic model presented, a number of topics should be specified in advance. A novel dynamic nonparametric hierarchical Dirichlet process topic model is then developed where the number of topics is determined from data. Batch and online inference algorithms are developed. The latter part of the thesis considers behaviour analysis and anomaly detection within the change-point detection methodology. A novel general framework for change-point detection is introduced. Gaussian process time series data is considered. Statistical hypothesis tests are proposed for both offline and online data processing and multiple change point detection are proposed and theoretical properties of the tests are derived. The thesis is accompanied by open-source toolboxes that can be used by researchers and engineers.

Finding Data Anomalies You Didn't Know to Look For Anomaly detection is the detective work of machine learning: finding the unusual, catching the fraud, discovering strange activity in large and complex datasets. But, unlike Sherlock Holmes, you may not know what the puzzle is, much less what “suspects” you’re looking for. This O’Reilly report uses practical examples to explain how the underlying concepts of anomaly detection work. From banking security to natural sciences, medicine, and marketing, anomaly detection has many useful applications in this age of big data. And the search for anomalies will intensify once the Internet of Things spawns even more new types of data. The concepts described in this report will help you tackle anomaly detection in your own project. Use probabilistic models to predict what’s normal and contrast that to what you observe Set an adaptive threshold to determine which data falls outside of the normal range, using the t-digest algorithm Establish normal fluctuations in complex systems and signals (such as an EKG) with a more adaptive probablistic model Use historical data to discover anomalies in sporadic event streams, such as web traffic Learn how to use deviations in expected behavior to trigger fraud alerts

In the aftermath of catastrophic global fi nancial collapse, which all but destroyed even the most advanced countries, two scientists discover an anomaly which could, in the right hands, help save mankind but in the wrong hands destroy it. The scientists intend to build a new society, populated with carefully selected like minded specialists, offering them freedom and a completely new way of life. The enormous power of their discovery was uncovered by a brutal emergent Super Power and a megalomaniac renegade politician who, for personal reasons, wanted the invention for himself and would use any means to get it.
