Confidence in God in Times of Danger

Another quality eBook from Chapel Library. Confidence in God in Times of Danger is a passionate explanation of God's workings in the Book of Esther. The author moves from Biblical insight to practical application in the lives of God's people today. When the times are turbulent and filled with all manner of possible dangers, the great God of the Bible is in control and can be trusted completely.

"We learn that the most casual events which take place in the affairs of the world are connected with God's plans respecting His people; and that the most trifling things are appointed and directed by Him to effect His purposes. It decides a question that philosophy has conversed for ages, and will never fathom; recording a number of events, the result of man's free will, yet evidently appointed of God and directed by His providence. From this book the believer may learn to place unbounded confidence in the care of his God in the utmost danger; and to look to the Lord of omnipotence for deliverance when there is no apparent means of escape."

Proverbs: Selected Comments on Twenty-two Proverbs

Another quality eBook from Chapel Library. Bridges' Proverbs is "The best work on the Proverbs. While explaining the passage in hand, he sets other portions of the Word in new lights."--C. H. Spurgeon

"While other parts of Scripture show us the glory of our high calling, this book may instruct us in all minuteness of detail how to "walk worthy" of it (Col 1:10). We see the minuteness of out Christian obligations; that there is not a temper, a look, a word, a movement, the most important action of the day, the smallest relative duty, in which we do not either deface or adorn the image of our Lord, and the profession of His name. Surely if the book conduced to no other end, it tends to humble even the most consistent servant of God, in consciousness of countless failures. The whole book is a mirror for us all, not only to show our defects, but also [as] a guidebook and directory for godly conduct."--Charles Bridges, from the Preface, 1846

Charles Bridges (1794-1869) was one of the leaders of the evangelical movement in the Church of England in the mid-1800s. He was Vicar of Old Newton, Suffolk, from 1823 to 1849, and later of Weymouth and Hinton Martell in Dorset. Bridges is known for both literary work such as The Christian Ministry and his expositions, which include Ecclesiastes and Psalm 119 as well as Proverbs.

Arthritis in a Nutshell

This book provides concise information about the most common type of arthritis, Osteoarthritis. This book contains basic information about symptoms, treatment, physical therapies, medication, diagnosis, treatment, surgery, and causes related to Osteoarthritis.

Trust in the LORD With All Your Heart

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart . . ." (Proverbs 3.5)

This short e-book of Scriptures and photos was written to bring encouragement and comfort to those who are experiencing trials.

Trusting in the Lord while undergoing trials can seem like an impossible task. We can't see a way out, we're not in control, and we're not naturally calm and patient folks. But according to God's Word, He is the only One we can trust in difficult times. The only One who knows all, the only One who can do all, and because of His great love for us, He will always do the right thing for us.

With full-screen photos of flowers, scenery, butterflies, and more.

Are You Trusting in Jesus Christ?

Trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ is the most important trust you can have. Without Jesus, you're not in right standing with God, no matter how many good things you've done or how nice a person you might be. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father but by Me" (John 14.6).

The truth is, none of us is good. Because of Adam and Eve's disobedience to God, all of us were born with a natural inclination to sin, and therefore are sinners: "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3.23). And "the wages of sin is death" (Romans 6.23)--not only physical death but spiritual death, or separation from God. One who is separated from God is considered to be His enemy and justly deserving His wrath and eternity in Hell. And there is nothing anyone can do to work or earn his way to God, for "by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in His sight . . ." (Romans 3.20).

The Good News! Jesus Christ has atoned for our sins with His blood on the cross. This means that Christ has reconciled us to God, or brought us into favor with Him. Jesus loved us so much that, although we were sinners, He gave His life for us, "For He [God] has made Him [Jesus], who knew no sin, to be sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him" (2 Corinthians 5.21). And God "raised Him from the dead and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named . . ." (Ephesians 1.20-21), giving Jesus eternal life and power. And those who completely put their trust in Christ, and not in anyone or anything else, are saved through faith by God's mercy and grace, having forgiveness of sins, peace with God, and eternal life in Heaven in the presence of God and His Son: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3.16).

Dear reader, if you're truly sorry for your sins and now trust in the Lord Jesus Christ for atonement of your sins, also believing that God raised Him from the dead, you are saved. God's Holy Spirit will come and live within you, guiding you and strengthening you to live a holy and righteous life for Christ. You'll have a hunger for God's Word, a desire to do His will, and a yearning to fellowship with other believers. "Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new" (2 Corinthians 5.17).

Welcome to the family, the Body of Christ!

Todd Keisling: My essay "Never Look Away: Confront Your Fears in Fiction" is an anecdotal look at an important lesson I learned early on in my writing career: That you shouldn't look away from your subject matter, no matter how disturbing it is to you. Looking away does a disservice to your story, and by proxy, your reader.

Why should authors read Writers on Writing?

Jack Ketchum: It's rich in the variety of subjects discussed, written by people who know whereof they speak.

Todd Keisling: There are decades of experience contained within the book's pages, covering multiple genres. I can't think of a more diverse collection for the established--or aspiring--writing professional.

Do you have other non-fiction books authors should try out?

Jack Ketchum: Stephen King's ON WRITING and DANSE MACABRE. William Goldman's ADVENTURES IN THE SCREEN TRADE. Syd Field's SCREENPLAY.

Todd Keisling: A few come to mind: Stephen King's On Writing, Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird, and Ariel Gore's How to Become a Famous Writer Before You're Dead.

Mastering Book Hooks for Authors: How to Capture Reader Attention and Book Sales in 30 Words or Less

Authors, what if one sentence is all it takes to grab a reader's interest?

Would you want to know the secret? Of course, every author desires to sell more books.

That's the power of a hook. And, it just worked on you.

A book hook is a statement or question designed to generate immediate curiosity and entice readers to want more.

Why is a hook important? Language is the power of the book sale. As an author, you don't sell books to machines. You sell books to human beings. A book hook uses powerful language that naturally piques a person's interest.

Book marketing expert, Rob Eagar, has coached over 450 authors and worked with several New York Times bestsellers. In this concise guide, he skillfully explains:

oHow to create a book hook

oThe difference between fiction and non-fiction hooks

oWhere to use a book hook to maximize sales

Mastering Book Hooks for Authors will teach you how to create attention-grabbing language for your book, regardless of the genre. Capture more reader interest for free by using the power of a hook.

Also includes free access to "The Ultimate Book Marketing Plan Template for Authors" by Rob Eagar that takes the guesswork out of launching your new book.

Insider Editing tips for Self-Publishers: Avoiding Embarrassing Typos and Grammatical Errors

You have something important to say, and you're looking for a platform that allows your voice to reach the broadest audience possible. The chances of finding a traditional publisher for your masterpiece are slim to none, and so you have decided to explore the world of self-publishing.

Katherine Walden created this encouraging short read as a gift to her fellow self-publishing writers who have limited resources at their disposal. If you can't afford to hire an editor, then read this free book to find out the whys and wherefores of self-editing.

Do grammar and spelling make that big of a difference to a reader? Yes, they do! The most brilliant of thoughts will make little impact on your audience if your audience can't follow your logic due to weak and sloppy sentence structure.

Memograms: Easy Anagrams of Hard-to-Spell Words

Are you lost without your spelling checker? Don't know whether "dictionory" is spelled with an "a"... or maybe an "e"? "Memograms: Easy Anagrams of Hard-to-Spell Words" is a collection of humorous mnemonics (memory-helpers) for 120 words that many people find surprisingly difficult to spell. Most of us can spell most of our words most of the time, if we are just given a little assistance with knowing exactly which letters are available to us. Does the word have an "A" or an "E"? Does it start with an "S" or a "C"? You know that it has one or the other; you're just not sure which. But what if, somehow, you were positive that it had an "A" and not an "E" or you were certain that it began with an "S" and not a "C"? Then you could always spell it correctly. This is what this little book will help you with. Each word is presented with an accompanying anagram--a total rearrangement of its letters--that is linguistically correct and is sometimes eerily related to the original word ("aspirin" becomes "I sprain"). This is followed by an easy-to-remember sentence--often funny for its nonsense--that uses both the original word and its anagram. Finally, there is a short definition of the original word. All of which is designed to help you conquer some of the most formidable "spelling demons" in the English language. Student or secretary, youngster or adult, this is a great little book to keep with you on your smartphone or tablet as a quick, easy, and fun way to help you with all of your writing, wherever you go.

Writers' Yellow Pages: A directory of professionals to help with your book

Finding the right professional help is a challenge for self-published authors. In this compendium Mark Dawson, an Amazon best-seller, has put together a categorised list of pros who can make your book shine.

Library of Alexandria

One of the most important questions for any student of the ancient world to address is 'how do we know what we know about antiquity?' Whether we're thinking about urban architecture, or love poetry, or modern drama, a wide range of factors shape the picture of antiquity that we have today. This free course, Library of Alexandria, encourages you to reflect upon and critically assess those factors. Interpreting an ancient text, or a piece of material culture, or understanding an historical event, is never a straightforward process of 'discovery', but is always affected by things such as translation choices, the preservation (or loss) of an archaeological record, or the agendas of scholars.

This method of getting book ideas, compared to other methods, is like comparing the fish a single angler catches to what a fishing trawler does.

Don't get poor results with one idea. Easily come up with a string of subjects that will give you far better results.

In particular, you will learn a strategy that I've not seen taught anywhere else. It will give you a long list of ideas that will give you much higher results than just having a mass of books.

I also read every book on the subject that I could find. Despite the advice, every time I published a book, the struggle would start again.

Since then, through study, innovation, and testing, I discovered better strategies for selling books. These eventually led me to discovering the ultimate method. In the process, I've also found some brilliant ways to get endless and very profitable book ideas.

Using these methods, you will...

never run out of ideas.

always get a successful subject.

make your ideas better than the competition.

massively increase your chance of a best-seller.

"I'm ok, I can't hear it!" is a phrase we hear all the time.

106 Master Tweets from beautiful minds (tweet 106)

Since ancient times the great thinkers have had a special place in the consciences of individuals by inspiring their behavior and actions both public or private. We often try to find the right words to say something, and we wish we could say that something using the words of these greatest masters. These 106 tweets have been written to help you to find the exact words you are looking for.106 master tweets is a collection of elegant quotes from influential thinkers and writers about the concepts of culture, existence, thought (meaning the activity of thinking), politics (i.e. the political behavior of man as social being) and society.

In this way reading becomes an activity that is both pleasurable and profound, which touches upon the reasons why we believe and act in this world."Reading makes a full man, conference a ready man and writing an exact man."This is the first tweet of this e-book and it was written by the English philosopher and scientist Francis Bacon in the 17th century.It could be engraved on the stones of every school.

John’s Gospel: The Love of God

The publisher offers this ebook for free at

I believe this is the most profound and inspiring booklet I have ever written. John was called the one whom Jesus loved. When Christ was on Earth, He probably spent more time with John than any other apostle including Peter. Do you know why? John was apparently the only apostle not to be martyred. He didn't write his Gospel until about 30 years after Christ's death. Later he wrote his epistles. He also wrote the book of Revelation while he was imprisoned on the isle of Patmos. John's Gospel discusses many foundational and deep subjects the other Gospels don't. He was the only writer to explain who the Word was and why His sacrifice should inspire us forever! No Gospel writer describes the God Family vision as John does. Only John discusses these subjects: the mighty I AM and who He really was; the resurrection of Lazarus and how it relates to your incredible human potential; the Samaritan woman and what she means for the world; why Jesus wept, which even most of God's own people don't understand. I believe you will be joyfully stunned when you understand these mind-gripping subjects. You need to read and study this powerful message. If you do, it will help you mightily in building God's joy in your life.

In this booklet:

o The Word Made Flesh

o John Reveals God's Work Today

o The Voice of the Bridegroom

o "I Am"

o "Keep Them From the Evil One"

o Living Water

o Build the Faith of Jesus Christ

o A Lesson in Love

Walk in the Spirit!: Volume 1

"If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit." (Galatians 5.25)

Sounds great! But just what exactly is "walking in the Spirit"? "Walking in the Spirit" is living a virtuous life under the influence of the Holy Spirit. In other words, doing just as our Lord Jesus would do.

But is "walking in the Spirit" possible? Yes! If it weren't, why would God have given us such detailed explanations in His Word?

This series, like Illustrated Bible Verses, is a book of Bible verses and photos. The verses in this series show what God's Word says about walking in the Spirit. Use it as an introduction to the subject or as a refresher course.

I pray that you would be blessed abundantly with this series, walking in the Spirit and being fruitful in every good word and work.

Can you imagine thumbing through your daily mail and finding a letter from Jesus Christ? Not a prank, not a hoax, but the genuine article - a letter from heaven, from the risen Lord, written personally to you and your church. If hearing from God sounds intriguing, then this little book is for you. Several decades after His death, burial, resurrection and ascension, Jesus revealed Himself, in a vision from heaven, to the apostle John. Jesus directed John to write as He dictated seven letters to seven communities of faith scattered around Asia Minor. These personal notes are found in Revelation chapters two and three. In Sincerely, Jesus we will look at the amazing relevance each letter holds for life in the twenty-first century. All Jesus asks of us is to read with a listening heart and a willingness to make the adjustments, both in our personal lives, and in our churches, that the Holy Spirit prescribes.

The Most Beautiful Czech books 2013

The Most Beautiful Czech books 2013

The imprint of a book is not like the credits of a Hollywood blockbuster. Even so, there tends to be an average of fifteen to thirty names listed under the creation of the book. People often leave the cinema before the end credits finish rolling. Likewise, the ordinary reader does not examine the book's imprint in detail. The truth is that it is examined most closely by those who contributed to the creation of the book. They check to make sure their name hasn't been misspelled or even completely missed out for some reason. Seeing one's name printed in black and white is always pleasing to the human ego. However, if you are unable to imagine the specific person behind the name, and what he does in his professional and personal life, then for you names in an imprint are little more than random clusters of letters. The Most Beautiful Books catalogue is essentially a publication made up of imprints from all the winning books. For the layman it is just as engaging reading as the results of a race on which he didn't bet.

By including in the catalogue a series of interviews with people who have actively contributed in various ways to the creation of the winning books or to the competition's decision-making process, the aim is to remove the anonymity from the austere text of this list of results. The primary objective was not to convey the views of the winners but rather something of the authentic atmosphere of the community "around books". That is why the people to take part in each of the six interviews were selected according to their professions from across the imprints of the winning books.

e-Pedia: United States Presidential Election: The election of the President and Vice President of the United States is an indirect vote in which citizens ... ballots for a slate of members of the U.S

This carefully crafted ebook is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.

The election of the President and Vice President of the United States is an indirect vote in which citizens cast ballots for a set of members of the U.S. Electoral College. These electors then cast direct votes for the President and Vice President. If both votes result in an absolute majority, the election is over. If a majority of electors do not vote for President, the House of Representatives chooses the President; if a majority of electors do not vote for Vice President, the Senate votes. Presidential elections occur quadrennially on Election Day, which since 1845 has been the Tuesday after the first Monday in November, coinciding with the general elections of various other federal, state, and local races. The 2016 U.S. presidential election is scheduled for November 8.

This book has been derived from Wikipedia: it contains the entire text of the title Wikipedia article + the entire text of all the 467 related (linked) Wikipedia articles to the title article. This book does not contain illustrations.

Healthy Care-Health Insurance Advice | Health Insurance is your most important health care product: Make your best personal health/personal wealth decision ... Heatlhy Care (EZ Internet Reference Book

oSave hundreds, if not thousands of dollars every year by having the right health insurance.

oTurn that confusion-laced fine print into clear, precise details that are simple to understand

oHaving the right Health Insurance is your investment in a healthy life

o'Healthy Care' covers how you pay your Excess and Co-payments

I have worked in the health care system for years in areas directly relating to the patients' Health Insurance. I have seen, first hand, that there are a great number of people who are unaware of the limitations of their own Health Insurance.

But, I do understand that it is NOT through the patient's own negligence. It really is the responsibility of the staff member (slash salesperson) at the Health Fund to tell you the FULL ins-and-outs of the cover that they are selling you.

The way it generally goes is like this. You walk into the fund branch or phone them. They suggest what suits you. They explain that you will pay this much a month and whether or you are covered for hospital. They may even tell you what your Excess will come to.

Because they know it all inside out they can blurt it all out pretty quickly. Before you know it, they've finished talking, you're making a choice out of option A or, option B and then your sold.

Well I guess if you have no idea of what you are looking for, that's the only way you can go about it.

But what if you went into a store knowing that you didn't need to go into hospital regularly and neither did any member of your family? What if you knew that having an Excess to pay could work out smarter in your own circumstances, or perhaps it didn't.

An alternate scenario to the one I have just described is that you walk into the Heath fund branch ready to buy your health insurance. This time you are totally prepared because you KNOW what you want to be covered for, You are clear on how your Excess and co-payment work. You will also understand this could work to your benefit if you don't go into hospital.

So now, with this very clear picture of what you need, nobody would be able to pull the wool over your eyes because you know your Health Insurance.

In this second scenario, you have the opportunity to really the right insurance policy for your family, not just one that you half-understood and the half felt bedazzled by.

As a qualified teacher in three essential life areas, I have decided that the public needs better information to help them make the right decisions when it comes to making these types of choices.

This book is a self-help book on investing in your own Healthy Care. Any time that you are considering health care products in general, you will find that a good health insurance will be rewarded because at that critical moment in time it could literally cover thousands of dollars in health care fees.

When it comes to your own Healthy Care, you will find that investing in your own personal health is an area that you should be including within your personal money management strategies.

In fact, there is little difference between being on top of your personal finance as there is to being in control of your own personal health. Without taking care of your personal health you could find yourself having some high medical fees to cover.

As witness in my job to how health covers are explained to policy-holders, I find that many people leave the fund centers without having been given enough information. Many times they expect their policy to cover their visits to hospital, dentists, opticians etc. Unfortunately, only when they are in need of those services do they become aware of the limitations of the cover they have chosen.

Health Insurance is not difficult to understand. Healthy Care has been created as a consumers aid and aims to turn the Health Insurance fine print into clear easy-to-understand, everyday language.

This book is part of the' EZ Internet Reference' series.

How to Write a Children's Picture Book Volume III: Figures of Speech: 3

Many of us think of children's picture books as being written mostly with simple declarative sentences. What an eye-opener to learn that they are actually filled with delightful figures of speech. I am not talking here about the common figures of speech we learn about in grade school: simile, onomatopoeia, alliteration, hyperbole and personification. I am talking about more subtle and sophisticate...

Conspiracy Theory 101: A Researcher's Starting Point

Have you ever asked yourself "What's really going on?" after watching a news story? Maybe you have wondered, "What is the government REALLY doing?" Perhaps you've caught a slip of something an "official" shouldn't have said and wanted to know the other side of the story. Conspiracy Theory 101 explores some of these situations. When the government is silent, theories fill the space in a genuine effort to see the big picture. Sometimes those theories become fact when whistleblowers talk or years later when the documents are declassified. Conspiracy Theory 101 explores common conspiracy theories starting out with the JFK assassination and September 11th. (and more...see Table of Content below) Then it shows you theories that became fact like MK Ultra, the Tuskegee Experiment, and Human Testing. If you want more, Conspiracy Theory 101 will take you ever deeper by covering Population Control, Agenda 21, and the Georgia Guidestones. After that, Conspiracy Theory 101 will take you for a ride on the crazy train. Don't worry, you can get off before the wreck. Included in this book is your jump start to researching on your own. Put your investigative skills to work and join the vibrant community of truth-seekers. The Chapter of Research and Reference material is worth the 99 cents by itself.

If you're already a hardcore conspiracy theory researcher, you're going to see a lot of familiar topics here. However, you might see some you've never heard of or learn new information about ones you have studied before. Even if all the topics are old news, the Research and Reference Materials are worth your time.

Better Traffic and Revenue Forecasting

Demand and revenue forecasting for transport concessions has an inconsistent track record. There are several reasons for this: a possible optimism bias, the inherent uncertainty in any forecast, limited data and a poor choice of modelling tools. Therefore any better approach must acknowledge these constraints from the outset and be adapted to deal with revenue risk. This book addresses these issues on the basis of 20 years of international experience producing Traffic and Revenue projections for a range of transport concessions: Toll Roads, Managed Lanes, LRT, BRT, Metro and Rail projects with involvement of the private sector. It includes an additional chapter on Congestion Charging. The book is divided into three parts. Part I covers the context for the participation of the private sector and the requirements posed for demand forecasting. Part II is more technical and describes the strengths and limitations of the modelling tools used in both conventional and Traffic and Revenue forecasting models; it deals with issues like induced traffic, destination, mode and time of travel choice and, of course, discusses assignment in detail; willingness to pay is central to this part. Part III covers the practice of producing forecasts for different types of concessions: sound assumptions, modelling price and means of payment, growth models, treatment of congestion and travel time reliability, optimal pricing, annualisation, inflation and tariff escalation. This part also deals with the critical issue of future uncertainty with suggestions for peer reviews, sensitivity test, risk analysis and scenario planning. The book should be of interest to professionals working in procuring authorities preparing a transport concession, consortia bidding for such projects and financial specialists seeking to get a better understanding of the techniques used for Traffic and Revenue forecasting. Planners developing projects where price and revenue risk are important will also gain useful i

When Lila Moore inherits her grandfather's house, she finds herself in a small Midwestern town where margarine is never an acceptable substitution for butter, a coveted family recipe can serve as currency, and the friend who will take your darkest secrets to the grave will still never give you the secret to her prize-winning begonias. Lila is charmed by the people of Auburn, from the blue-eyed lawyer with the southern drawl to the little old lady who unceasingly tries to set Lila up with her grandson. But when strange things begin to happen, Lila realizes some of her new friends are guarding a secret like its a precious family heirloom. It's a dangerous secret, and it has come back to haunt them. Lila is caught in the middle, and her life may depend on uncovering it. But even if she can, can she stay in Auburn when not everyone is what they seem, and even the house wants her gone?

Modern Languages Across the Curriculum

As we enter the twenty-first century,questions of language and communications have never been more strongly posed. To celebrate the 'century of langauge' this book deals with recent advances in modern languages teaching and learning across Europe. Individual chapters examine the developments in teaching methodologies over the past one hundred years and the theoretical advances in our understanding of how languages are learned. The example of Communicative Language Teaching is used to illustrate the principles and purpose of learning a second language. The need for combining the content and form of language learning in a much more integrated fashion is set out; for example, teaching a curriculum subject through a foreign language. Individual national case studies show how these developments have been applied in a range of cultural contexts. Content and Language Integrated Learning is illustrated with reference to pedagogic, cultural, and political issues. Practical materials are included in order to show what Modern Languages Across the Curriculum looks like in practice. There is also a chapter dealing with the implications of this approach to second language learning for teacher education, both in initial and in-service training. The book covers issues of policy and practice, method and rationale and deals with the 'state of the art' in teaching and learning modern languages across the curriculum.

Theoretical Comparative Syntax: Studies in Macroparameters (Routledge Leading Linguists)

Collected for the first time in a single volume, these essays and articles by Naoki Fukui form an outline of some of the most significant and formative contributions to syntactic theory. Focusing particularly on the typological differences between English type language and Japanese type languages, Fukui examines the abstract parameters that both link and divide them. Linguistic universals are considered in the light of cross-linguistic variation and typological (parametric) differences are investigated from the viewpoint of universal principles. The book's main focus is the nature and structure of invariant principles and parameters (variables) and how they interact to give principled accounts to a variety of seemingly unrelated differences between English and Japanese. The contrasts between these two types of language is an ideal testing ground, since the languages are superficially different in virtually every aspect of their linguistic structures from word order and wh-movement, to grammatical agreement and case-marking systems, among many others. These articles constitute a considerable contribution to the development of the principles-and-parameters model in its exploration and refinement of theoretical concepts and fundamental principles of linguistic theory, leading to some of the basic insights that lie behind the minimalist program.

Essential Speech and Language Technology for Dutch: Results by the STEVIN-programme (Theory and Applications of Natural Language Processing)

The book provides an overview of more than a decade of joint R&D efforts in the Low Countries on HLT for Dutch. It not only presents a state of the art of HLT for Dutch in the areas covered, but, even more importantly, an account of the concrete results (resources and tools for Dutch) achieved that have now become available for both academia and industry worldwide. The contributions cover many areas of human language technology (for Dutch): corpus collection (including IPR issues) and building (in particular one corpus aiming at a collection of 500M words) lexicology, anaphora resolution, a semantic network, parsing technology, speech recognition, machine translation, text (summaries) generation, web mining, information extraction, and text to speech to name the most important ones. The book also shows how a medium-sized language (spanning two territories) can create a digital language infrastructure (resources, tools, etc.) as a basis for subsequent R&D. At the same time, it bundles contributions of almost all the HLT research groups in Flanders and the Netherlands, hence offering a view of their recent research activities. Targeted readers are mainly researchers in human language technology, in particular those focusing on Dutch. It concerns researchers active in larger networks such as CLARIN, META-net, FlareNet and who participate in conferences such as ACL, EACL, NAACL, COLING, RANLP, CICling, LREC, CLIN, DIR (both in the Low Countries), InterSpeech, ASRU, ICASSP, ISCA, EUSIPCO, CLEF, TREC, etc. In addition, some chapters are interesting for human language technology or policy makers and even for science policy makers in general.
