Product Description
This book emphasizes the centrality of nationhood to Thomas Jefferson's thought and politics, envisioning Jefferson as a cultural nationalist whose political project sought the alignment of the American state system with the will and character of the nation. Jefferson believed that America was the one nation on earth able to realize in practice universal ideals to which other peoples could only aspire. He appears in the book as the essential narrator of what he once called the "American Story": as the historian, the sociologist, and the ethnographer; the political theorist of the nation; the most successful practitioner of its politics; and its most enthusiastic champion. The book argues that reorienting Jefferson around the concept of American nationhood recovers an otherwise easily missed coherence to his political career and helps make sense of a number of conundrums in his thought and practice.

Algorithms for Information Science
Product Description
This textbook on practical data analytics unites fundamental principles, algorithms, and data. Algorithms are the keystone of data analytics and the focal point of this textbook. Clear and intuitive explanations of the mathematical and statistical foundations make the algorithms transparent. But practical data analytics requires more than just the foundations. Problems and data are enormously variable and only the most elementary of algorithms can be used without modification. Programming fluency and experience with real and challenging data is indispensable and so the reader is immersed in Python and R and real data analysis. By the end of the book, the reader will have gained the ability to adapt algorithms to new problems and carry out innovative analyses.

This book has three parts:
(a) Data Reduction: Begins with the concepts of data reduction, data maps, and information extraction. The second chapter introduces associative statistics, the mathematical foundation of scalable algorithms and distributed computing. Practical aspects of distributed computing is the subject of the Hadoop and MapReduce chapter.
(b) Extracting Information from Data: Linear regression and data visualization are the principal topics of Part II. The authors dedicate a chapter to the critical domain of Healthcare Analytics for an extended example of practical data analytics. The algorithms and analytics will be of much interest to practitioners interested in utilizing the large and unwieldly data sets of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System.
(c) Predictive Analytics Two foundational and widely used algorithms, k-nearest neighbors and naive Bayes, are developed in detail. A chapter is dedicated to forecasting. The last chapter focuses on streaming data and uses publicly accessible data streams originating from the Twitter API and the NASDAQ stock market in the tutorials.
This book is intended for a one- or two-semester course in data analytics for upper-division undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics, statistics, and computer science. The prerequisites are kept low, and students with one or two courses in probability or statistics, an exposure to vectors and matrices, and a programming course will have no difficulty. The core material of every chapter is accessible to all with these prerequisites. The chapters often expand at the close with innovations of interest to practitioners of data science. Each chapter includes exercises of varying levels of difficulty. The text is eminently suitable for self-study and an exceptional resource for practitioners.

How the SEC East Can Pass Up the West

In the first 11 years of divisional play, the SEC East was the best at winning titles. It won eight of those first 11 championships, with Florida taking five, Tennessee two, and Georgia one. The East has won just three of the past dozen league titles, with Florida getting two and Georgia one. When it comes down to it, it's high-end coaching that wins the titles. Only four coaches have ever won the SEC from the East side, and three own national titles: Steve Spurrier, Phillip Fulmer, Mark Richt, and Urban Meyer. It's more diverse on the West side with seven coaches winning SEC crowns from there, but only Nick Saban and Les Miles have won more than one. Gus Malzahn probably deserves a mention too for winning one both as a head coach and as an offensive coordinator that his head coach couldn't win without. The oft-cited fact that everyone in the West makes at least $4 million per year shows that, even in this age of even crazier amounts of money in college football, there aren't any bad coaches on that side. The new coordinator hires over there of John Chavis at Texas A&M and Will Muschamp at Auburn certainly inspire more confidence than some of those in the East like Brian Schottenheimer at Georgia and Mike DeBord at Tennessee. LSU took a step down going from Chavis to Kevin Steele, but picking up Ed Orgeron off the waiver wire was a great move. Last week, I ranked the SEC coaches from least to most likely to still be around a decade from now. Six of the top seven most likely to still be here are in the West, which means six of the top seven least likely are in the East. If I had to bet on it now, I would put money on the West continuing to win nearly every SEC title for at least the next half decade. It is possible to paint a picture where the East does get back to winning more league titles than the West, though, and this is one way it could happen. Smart proves to be a great coordinator who just isn't cut out to be a head coach. Lane Kiffin decides to take another head coaching job when Saban retires, and Smart replaces him with someone from the NFL who can't simplify things enough for a college team. After a couple of years of good work, Ed Orgeron gets another crack at a head coaching job. Steele without Coach O has the kinds of problems that led to his dismissal from Clemson.
