New book SKULL EYE ISLAND wins Adventure Writers Grandmaster Award

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2012 Adventure Writers Competition, sponsored by the Clive Cussler Collectors Society has chosen The Adventures of Jonathan Moore: Skull Eye Island, the new action adventure novel by Peter Greene as the third Grand Master Award winner.   "It is a great honor to win the competition," said Greene, "Almost as exciting as meeting Clive Cussler!  To have Clive and Dirk Cussler read my book is truly mind-blowing!"

Skull Eye Island, with illustrations by artist Michelle Graham, is the first book in the four-volume Adventures of Jonathan Moore series. Volume 2, Castle of Fire has just been released.

Kirkus Reviews says Skull Eye Island is:  "A heartwarming tale of a boy essentially orphaned in search of his father, the novel never ceases to entertain.  Greene's swashbuckling tale of high-seas adventure is pure, uncomplicated fun!"

Homeless and alone on the streets of London in 1800, orphaned Jonathan Moore survives this dangerous world using intelligence and determination.  His dismal fate changes dramatically one day after he is captured and pressed into service aboard the HMS Poseidon, a forty-four gun fighting frigate of the British Royal Navy.   However, there is more to the event than just a change of address. As he tries to solve the mystery of his lost father, Jonathan joins a desperate race across the Atlantic Ocean to Skull Eye Island.  He is pitted against sword-wielding spies, engages in terrifying ship-to-ship battles and in the end, must match his wits and courage against a ruthless and cunning French Naval Captain and his powerful warship.

Skull Eye Island is unique, being especially written to be read aloud.  A former teacher, Greene wrote a story that could be read to youngsters, but still entertain the adults reading the tale.  "That is how we create future readers," Greene said. "When youngsters see adults reading and enjoying a story, they want to read as well."

The book is also different because there is no magic or inappropriate material.  "Almost every book available for young adults is based upon heroes having magical powers, or stocked with super-natural abilities," said Greene.  "Like Jonathan, I believe we all have it within ourselves to do something great, no magic necessary."

Both books are available through Amazon.com, Kindle, Sony eReader, Nook, and Smashwords for apple devices.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers.

A service mesh like Istio addr...
