After Somali pirates capture two U.S. ships, Mack Bedford and the Navy SEALs' Delta Platoon are tasked with not only rescuing the ships, but also completely obliterating all pirates operating in the Indian Ocean.

The Delta Solution is an action-packed novel dealing with the Somali pirates operating off the southerly reaches of the lawless East African republic on the Indian Ocean. For the past three years, these heavily armed tribal brigands have been capturing and holding for ransom massive cargo ships, especially oil tankers, and violently demanding millions of dollars for their return. Pirating out of the tiny Somalian village of Haradheere has become a very lucrative, dangerous business, so much so that the village has its own Stock Exchange with a reputed $78 million cash, all in crisp $100 bills, in the town vault. And each time an owner pays big for the return of their ship, the pirates immediately do it again, enraging the Pentagon more and more by the day. That is, until the "Somali Marines" make a big mistake, seizing at gun point two United States ships and demanding a $15 million ransom for their return. Hero Mack Bedford, previously encountered in Diamondhead and Intercept, is deployed to SEAL Team 10 to form The Delta Platoon. His objective: obliterate the Somali Marines in the middle of the Indian Ocean, at all costs, once and for all.

This book follows the previously published title, Solving Large-scale Problems in Mechanics, edited by M. Papadrakakis. This first volume to be published in the Wiley Series in Solving Large-scale Problems in Mechanics is devoted to high-performance computing using the new generation of computers with parallel and distributed computing capabilities. Parallel and distributed processing is a rapidly growing area of high technology where engineering applications lagged behind hardware advances. New algorithms and codes are required in order to exploit effectively modern computer architectures, as programs suitable for conventional computers achieve very modest performances on these new machines. There is therefore an urgent need to develop and test powerful solution and data handling techniques capable of exploiting the potential of modern computers and of accomplishing the solution of complex engineering problems in an acceptable computing time. This volume intends capturing the latest developments in the field and to serve as an essential reference book on the subject. It comprises a comprehensive state-of-the-art treatment of theory and practice, illustrated by extensive numerical examples.

Tap Into the Proven, Potent Healing Powers of Essential Fatty Acids Think of essential fatty acids (EFAs)--both omega-3 and omega-6--as nature's own miracle drug. Research has proven that a proper balance of these nutrients promotes a healthy heart, influences how you think, look, and feel, and enhances your body's ability to fight disease. EFAs even influence how long you live. Yet they are the number one nutritional deficiency in the United States! The good news is that with nutritional supplements or through your regular diet you can begin to reap the profound health benefits of EFAs today! This complete resource shows you how. "A well-written, highly practical guide for understanding the importance of essential fatty acids in health and disease."--Michael T. Murray, N.D., co-author, "Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine "Timely, well-researched, and easy to read--a must for everyone interested in optimizing their health and reducing disease."--Joseph Pizzorno, N.D., co-author, "Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine, member, White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine "From cancer and heart disease to women's health issues, essential fatty acids play a major role in health promotion and the amelioration of disease.
