READING THE BOOK OF UNIVERSE AND RISALE-I NUR HAS NEVER BEEN SO PLEASANT. In total, there are 152 visuals and 10 videos utilized (rate of visuality is 50%) in this enormous study, where interactive visuals are also used. It is a first attempt in its area worldwide. (With additional sections 305 visual and 22 video) We would like you to accompany us in this imaginary and mental journey of discovery. There is only one fixed price for a ticket of the Journey: A strong sense of wonder in the search for truth. In this book, which is an explanatory work based on the "26th Word", that is, the Treatise of Divine Determining (Qadar)" of Risale-i Nur, the issue of "how to differentiate between the Divine Determining and free will" is addressed; and the evidences as to the fact that "things could take place only with the will of Allah" are dealt with. In addition, the questions related to the fact that "Qadar" does not give anybody any discomfort or strain, on the contrary it provides a perfect ease of mind and convenience and to the reconciliation of the ugliness of the troubles/evils that we see in the world with the fact that "everything coming from Qadar is good” are answered with such a proficiency that has not been witnessed in the history of Islam. In this book, you will see the explanations in relation to the essence of Qadar and Free Will; how they could be reconciled, the meaning of the belief in Qadar for human life, and the evidences of the existence of Qadar. Moreover, you will witness the harmonious friendship of a persuasive, crystal clear and fluent style with the logical inferences satisfying both mind and the heart. This work is part of our source book “Journey of Discovery for an Extraordinary Treasure: Risale-i Nur Training Program”, over which our “Journeys of Discovery Risale-i Nur Training Program” is based and it is “The Truth of Divine Determining and Free Will”, which is the “Fifth Truth” of the six “truths” in that Book’s the second part called “Proving the Treasury of Faith with Evidences” We strongly suggest and present this book to those who regularly read Risale-i Nur as well as to those who want to get some information for the first time. The epilogue of our book which is entitled “Your Journey Just Begins Now!” is also included in this work as it contains emotional, striking and impressive points coming sincerely from the deepest parts of our hearts about the reading of Risale-i Nur and attendance to the Risale-i Nur Lectures. We have to state and admit the following sincerely: although we did not have any idea about what to write before explanatory notes came into the being, (every time without any exception) , we were astonished by the resultant texts and realized that we had never understood these issues this clear before. While controlling the texts, we had great joy and pleasure and we were reading the texts as if they were written by someone else. The writings were helping us, in an unexpected way, in overcoming our greatest distresses, giving us a strong state of faith. Because, what we were writing was talking about eternal truths of faith and Quran and they were having such qualities which were having much more different than a work presented with the individual proficiency and capability of a person. Therefore, the beauty and the excellence of these truths must have been reflected in our word as well. For sure, we were pursuing an immensely difficult and tedious effort; sometimes it was taking 3-5 hour to complete 1-2 pages of explanatory notes. We were spending an equal amount of time for footnotes and the glossary of concepts. But, the feeling of joy, happiness and spiritual satisfaction were exceedingly worth this effort. At this stage, we realized and felt the reason behind Bediüzzaman’s saying: “I am also a student of Risale-i Nur. I am your classmate in learning the Teachings of Quran, I am also in need of Risale-i Nur.” And we understood that he was not trying to be humble while saying this. Although we had an humble purpose of “conducing to a higher level of our comprehension than the reader could get on his or her own, we achieved better results than our expectations. All praise is due to Allah, so we praise him. In deed our share is only that of praising. Now if you look at our personality, you may not see much value. This is normal, because neither could we see any. What we see is just this: our weakness in our distressed search, our needs, our sincere wishes and our actual prayers (prayers supported with actions). As a requirement of being a human, we wanted to share what we had found and felt, with those who had the same needs and who were in the same search. This is what we mean when we say that we are not like a teacher who makes you sit before her and starts teaching you. Maybe rather we are like a guest who himself is entreated a dining table as he is as hungry and needy as everybody, and he is sincerely inviting you to this dining table. Or maybe we are like a curious kid, who has found the key of a magnificent and inexhaustible treasure, and who wants to inform others of its existence and share it with them. WHY A VISUAL/INTERACTIVE BOOK Reading and watching the written truths in a verbal and visual format (with additional explanations not provided in our book) enables you to better understand and feel them. In this way, you are following the most fruitful method in understanding the knowledge of faith, which cannot be understood just with intellect but rather are “felt truths”, and in opening the door for new perspectives for them. We keenly believe that with this method of reinforcement (Allah willing) highest level of benefit will be realized in terms of understanding Risale-i Nur and the universe. When you open Pdf document on your computer with Adobe Reader you can read it better by choosing “two pages” option and zooming in. Since full-screen mode of the “Microsoft Word” changes the places of the visuals, you should read it in page format by zooming in. We would rather prefer if you would download it in Pdf format and read it with Adobe Acrobat due to both its small size and readability it in this way. It is possible to click links and open the word and Pdf files and videos within this interactive book in your computers and cell phones. (In your cell phone use Wps Office for Word and Adobe Acrobat Reader for Pdf files. Wps Office is a useful program which opens the footnotes when clicked upon but it can’t open the links in this way. For this reason, we suggest that you use Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to benefit from the interactive features of the book.)

On the one hand, this book will introduce us, who are living in the last-days (of the world), to important personalities whose existence and qualities we need to be aware of, as well as to important books that will be our guides to the truth; on the other hand, it will be a companion and very powerful means of service for us, that will hold our hand and take us to an unprecedented spiritual world, which is called "Risale-i Nur Classroom (Dersane)" and which lets us taste the moral pleasures of Heaven in this world. Short version of the book is already attached to our book entitled "A Journey for the Discovery of an Extraordinary Treasure: Risale-i Nur Training Program". The additional texts which only exist in the special extended version of the book are published only here.

This book, with its rich and original content, will show you, in an imaginary fashion, an utterly different world. You will read the astonishing and extraordinary story of a genius who is admired with his life, in the light of information that is brought together from different sources and can’t be found everywhere. You will make acquaintance to the magnificent activities of a spiritual school that has never physically come to existence, Spiritual Medresetüzzehra", which has the capacity of making serious contribution to the mental transformation that we need as a society. You will witness how Risale-i Nur has taken the people from every walk of society under its irresistible astonishing influence with an unprecedented educational campaign despite unfavourable conditions and you will learn how it has taken its place in the arena of science and knowledge as an unprecedented social reality a guide of truth and as a book which rebuilds (the characteristics of) its readers, having them read itself for a lifetime, and you will be trilled and lost in amazement. Furthermore, in this extended version, you will find a very rich content where Bediüzzaman's ideas on politics and government actions and his opinions on M. Kemal are discussed with a very different approach and an intellectual point of view. The epilogue entitled "Your Journey Has Just Begun" of our book, "A Journey for the Discovery of an Extraordinary Treasure: Risale-i Nur Training Program" is included in this work as it contains sensitive, striking and impressive findings, sincerely coming from the depths of the heart, about reading Risale-i Nur and participating in classes of Risale-i Nur. We would like you to accompany us in this imaginary and mental journey of discovery. There is only one fixed price for a ticket of the Journey: A strong sense of wonder in the search for truth.

Description : “This book is a critically needed resource for the newly released Apache Hadoop 2.0, highlighting YARN as the significant breakthrough that broadens Hadoop beyond the MapReduce paradigm.” —From the Foreword by Raymie Stata, CEO of Altiscale The Insider’s Guide to Building Distributed, Big Data Applications with Apache Hadoop™ YARN Apache Hadoop is helping drive the Big Data revolution. Now, its data processing has been completely overhauled: Apache Hadoop YARN provides resource management at data center scale and easier ways to create distributed applications that process petabytes of data. And now in Apache Hadoop™ YARN, two Hadoop technical leaders show you how to develop new applications and adapt existing code to fully leverage these revolutionary advances. YARN project founder Arun Murthy and project lead Vinod Kumar Vavilapalli demonstrate how YARN increases scalability and cluster utilization, enables new programming models and services, and opens new options beyond Java and batch processing. They walk you through the entire YARN project lifecycle, from installation through deployment. You’ll find many examples drawn from the authors’ cutting-edge experience—first as Hadoop’s earliest developers and implementers at Yahoo! and now as Hortonworks developers moving the platform forward and helping customers succeed with it. Coverage includes YARN’s goals, design, architecture, and components—how it expands the Apache Hadoop ecosystem Exploring YARN on a single node Administering YARN clusters and Capacity Scheduler Running existing MapReduce applications Developing a large-scale clustered YARN application Discovering new open source frameworks that run under YARN
