Description : Killer whales once had a reputation that was even fiercer than their name. But in 1964 the Vancouver Aquarium obtained its first killer whale, Moby Doll, and discovered that they were not the vicious man-eaters of legend. In January 2002, scientists reunited "Springer," a young orphaned whale found in Puget Sound, with her family in BC. At the same time another lone whale turned up on the west coast of Vancouver Island. The people of Nootka Sound adopted "Luna" as their own. Another rescue was planned to return Luna to his family but this time there so no happy ending. In OPERATION ORCA, award-winning author Daniel Francis gives breadth to the political debate of whether to interfere or let nature take its course.

Description : As distributed applications become more sophisticated, their implementation becomes more and more difficult. It is therefore important to study how to facilitate the implementation of efficient distributed applications. This thesis reviews the different classes of distributed languages and presents a new approach to develop efficient distributed programs using the Ada language. This approach is compared in detail with existing distributed programming languages, existing approaches to distributed Ada programs, and the Distributed Annex of the new revision of Ada language.

Description : Reader ALERT!! Orca Boy is suitable for all ages. And stars a killer whale, a dog, and a teenage whiz kid martial arts champion. Orcas are the undisputed top predators on earth, and rulers of the ocean, and yet they have managed to create a soft spot endearing them to humans, their only real enemy. Reading Orca Boy will make you a believer that one compassionate young person doing what he knows is right, can make a difference. Orca Boy begins when a young orca (Pepper) gets tangled in a fishing net. Her mother brings her to Whale Cove - the one place a human helped her many years earlier. Josh, our 17-year-old hero befriends Pepper and saves her life, but in so doing, he runs afoul of federal law. Misguided government agents swarm in to arrest Josh and trap Pepper. On the run in a kayak, and hiding his playful orca friend, he doesn't have much more than his i-phone and a near genius wit. Josh rallies the local "Save the Whales" group to mount protests at the Fish and Game office locally and in Seattle drawing national attention and media scrutiny to the little island town of Friday Harbor, WA. He also uncovers corruption and an orca poaching operation that targets him for death. His kayak is discovered run down and destroyed five miles offshore, the Coast Guard mounts a search to no avail, and the police discover one of the Fish and Game boats has suspicious scratches and paint marks. Josh is not alone, he has help from Sammie, the kayaker sailing instructor girl next door, and her Golden Lab that become Pepper's unlikely favorite playmate. San Juan County Sheriff, Detective Danny O'Brien follows the trail of forensic evidence tracking those responsible, but Josh has already secretly hacked bank computers following the money trail to a memory care facility where a past orca researcher resides.
