In 1948, the Orioles, a Baltimore-based vocal group, recorded "It's Too Soon to Know." Combining the sound of Tin Pan Alley with gospel and blues sensibilities, the Orioles saw their first hit reach #13 on the pop charts, thus introducing the nation to vocal rhythm & blues and paving the way for the most successful groups of the 1950s. In the first scholarly treatment of this influential musical genre, Stuart Goosman chronicles the Orioles' story and that of myriad other black vocal groups in the postwar period. A few, like the Orioles, Cardinals, and Swallows from Baltimore and the Clovers from Washington, D.C., established the popularity of vocal rhythm & blues nationally. Dozens of other well-known groups (and hundreds of unknown ones) across the country cut records and performed until about 1960. Record companies initially marketed this music as rhythm & blues; today, group harmony continues to resonate for some as "doo-wop." Focusing in particular on Baltimore and Washington and drawing significantly from oral histories, Group Harmony details the emergence of vocal rhythm & blues groups from black urban neighborhoods. Group harmony was a source of empowerment for young singers, for it provided them with a means of expression and some aspect of control over their lives where there were limited alternatives. Through group harmony, young black males celebrated and musically confounded, when they could not overcome, complex issues of race, separatism, and assimilation during the postwar period. Group harmony also became a significant resource for the popular music industry. Goosman interviews dozens of performers, deejays, and industry professionals to examine the entrepreneurial promise of midcentury popular music and chronicle the convergence of music, place, and business, including the business of records, radio, promotion, and song writing. Featured in the book's account of the black urban roots of rhythm & blues are the recollections of singers from groups such as the Cardinals, Clovers, Dunbar Four, Four Bars of Rhythm, Five Blue Notes, Hi Fis, Plants, Swallows, and many others, including Jimmy McPhail, a well-known Washington vocalist; Deborah Chessler, the manager and songwriter for the original Orioles; Jesse Stone, the writer and arranger from Atlantic Records; Washington radio personality Jackson Lowe; and seminal black deejays Al ("Big Boy") Jefferson, Maurice ("Hot Rod") Hulbert, and Tex Gathings.

This brief provides a detailed introduction, discussion and bibliographic review of the nature1-inspired optimization algorithm called Harmony Search. It uses a large number of simulation results to demonstrate the advantages of Harmony Search and its variants and also their drawbacks. The authors show how weaknesses can be amended by hybridization with other optimization methods. The Harmony Search Method with Applications will be of value to researchers in computational intelligence in demonstrating the state of the art of research on an algorithm of current interest. It also helps researchers and practitioners of electrical and computer engineering more generally in acquainting themselves with this method of vector-based optimization.

After being kidnapped and dumped on another planet, Javin awakens to discover all memories of his early life have disappeared. The world he finds himself on, Harmony, is nothing like his home planet, Haven, even though they are both in the same solar system. Harmony has no industry, no cities, no metal, only small groups of people living quiet, uncomplicated lives. And yet things are not as simple as they first appear. Everyone except Javin seems to have some mysterious connection with the planet. As if that's not enough, they all seem to have strange gifts, such as being able to heal, to communicate with animals, to see the future. Javin struggles to adapt to his new home at the same time as trying to reclaim his memories. Unsettling dreams lead to his meeting with an independent-minded woman, Meldren. Together they experience visions they cannot explain but which seem to have a purpose, if only they could understand them. In order to survive the effects of these visions, they have to give up everything. Doing so brings them to face a new crisis; one which is much bigger than they could have imagined. The fate of the entire planet, it seems, is in their hands. Will they be able to make the right decision and what will it cost them?

In "Visionaire No. 51: Harmony," works by leading artists--including Maurizio Cattelan, Robert Wilson, Yayoi Kusama, Vik Muniz, Massimo Vitali and Richard Misrach--are presented in the form of six large-scale puzzles. Each puzzle consists of 25 pieces that combine to create one complete image nearly three feet square. The puzzles can be pieced together separately so that each forms one artist's vision, or they can be combined to create other unexpected images. How will you create your "Harmony"? In collaboration with Lexus, and in celebration of the LS600h Hybrid, "Visionaire No. 51" is environmentally sensitive. The puzzles are made from partially recycled paper, non-toxic inks and chlorine free materials. They were fabricated at environmentally sustainable factories that recycle all byproducts, including heat generated during production. Each set of six puzzles comes packaged in a slick, 8x8-inch embossed cube. Available in black or silver.

Eight-year-old Murgatroyd Floyd doesn't fit in--not as a blue-eyed blonde living in Singapore, not in school, and certainly not with his aloof expatriate parents, who seem determined to make his life even harder. Unbeknownst to him, there's a reason why he's always the odd boy out: he is an Oddfit, a rare type of human with access to the More Known World, a land invisible to most people.

Seventeen years later, that something finally arrives when a secret organization dedicated to exploring the More Known World invites Murgatroyd on a mission. But as the consummate loser begins to grow into the Oddfit he was meant to be, the Known World becomes bent on exterminating him. For once in his underachieving life, will Murgatroyd Floyd exceed expectations and outsmart those trying to thwart his stupendous destiny?
