This book is an extract from a much larger book entitled Designing with LibreOffice. It is intended for those who only want information on using styles and templates with LibreOffice, the popular free-licensed office suite. It consists of Chapters 2, 3 and 11 in the larger book. This book is the first of five extracts from the complete book. The extracts are: Part 1: Styles and Templates, Part 2: Choosing Fonts, Part 3: Character and Paragraph Styles, Part 4: Page, Frame, and List Styles, Part 5: Slide Shows, Diagrams, and Spreadsheets. Together, the five smaller books will contain most, but not all, of the information from the larger book. Any changes are minimal, and made for continuity or changes in structure made necessary by the changes in format.
Fresh from a near-death experience in the hospitals of Washington, DC, Dr. Kasonso explains the essence of life in our world today, including timeless principles, inspirational stories, and a personal witness of what holds life together. Human existence is a quest to find significance. We all want our lives, our activities, our situations, and the people around us to make sense. But in our broken world, life is always juxtaposed by endless predicaments. As such, we all live through unresolved dilemmas, we all carry around unanswered questions, and we all live through unexplained events. There are always two sides to every life story—what we know and we do not know, what we can reach for and what is completely beyond us, what we can live with and what we can live without. Relive the principles that make life worth living, and discover a way to find meaning in a broken world in The Original Templates. Dr. Kasonso beautifully captures the essence of what it means to live a life that is fully surrendered to Jesus. It is inspiring. It is encouraging. It is challenging. Read it slowly and let it shape your heart and mind in the way of Jesus. - Insoo Kim, Coauthor of Both-And: Living the Christ-Centered Life in an Either-Or World and Church Planter of Life Church Vancouver, BC, Canada. The Original Templates is a must read book for everyone who is seeking his life to be reignited with passion for the Lord and His mission. It’s not just like any other book filled with words but something that is calling us back to original Christianity and be the answer to this broken world. Dr. Kasonso is an ordinary Christian with an extraordinary faith in Lord and a great inspiration to my personal walk with the Lord. - Rev Damas Kamfwa, National Director: Association of Vineyard Churches, Zambia. Dr. Kasonso, has written a book that is refreshing to the eyes which are also the windows to the soul. Kasonso takes his audience on a beautiful journey of ingenuity and along the journey, it is clear that his book lives up to its title. Get this book, it is a must read! - Michael Badriaki, Author of When Helping Works: Alleviating Fear and Pain in Global Missions.
No more scaling up of blocks. No more tracing patterns. No more gluing designs onto sandpaper or cardboard. Patchwork quilting has never been easier, thanks to the special feature of this volume ? permanent plastic templates. From the four easy-to-use templates provided, needleworkers can create 27 of the most popular patchwork patterns, using traditional handsewing techniques or the sewing machine. Choose from such authentic favorites as Windmill, Susannah, Road to Oklahoma, Stars and Stripes, Puss-in-the-Corner, Ohio Star, Dutchman's Puzzle, Martha Washington's Star, and others. Selected for their relative simplicity, the motifs are still intriguing enough to provide challenges for both beginners and experts. Use the blocks together to create stunning sample quilts, or repeat a single block over and over again for a striking one-design quilt. Many of these blocks produce wonderful optical illusions when an entire quilt is made of the same block. For equally eye-catching results, try repeating two or three different blocks in one quilt. The number of quilts you can make with this volume is virtually limitless! Colors have not been specified for the quilt blocks, but noted needlecraft designer Rita Weiss has indicated light, bright, medium, and dark fabrics as guideposts. Let your imagination dictate your own color scheme and achieve beautiful one-of-a-kind quilts that reflect your unique personality and creativity. You'll find 59 helpful illustrations, plus complete instructions for using the templates, material selection, cutting, sewing ? everything needed for successful quilt-making.

This book surveys the relatively new area of the synthesis of organic ligands when metal ions act as a template. In the last fifty years this field has undergone an explosive development, marked by a great amount of literature. The material in the book has been arranged according to the type of chemical reaction involved. In this frame, the basic principles of metal template reactions and the shape of the molecules are considered. Designed to satisfy the demands of students, young researchers doing their PhDs, and those working in the field of coordination chemistry, the book details the role of the metal ions and the specific properties of the formed complexes. Metal Mediated Template Synthesis of Ligands offers a comprehensive analysis with wide-ranging references and provides an extensive overview of research on metal-directed organic ligands over the past five decades. Contents: The Template Effect; Alkylation Reactions; Schiff Condensation; Mannich Condensation; Self Condensation of Nitriles; Self-Assembled Systems.

Templates are used to generate all kinds of text, including computer code. The last decade, the use of templates gained a lot of popularity due to the increase of dynamic web applications. Templates are a tool for programmers, and implementations of template engines are most times based on practical experience rather than based on a theoretical background. This book reveals the mathematical background of templates and shows interesting findings for improving the practical use of templates. First, a framework to determine the necessary computational power for the template metalanguage is presented. The template metalanguage does not need to be Turing-complete to be useful. A non-Turing-complete metalanguage enforces separation of concerns between the view and model. Second, syntactical correctness of all languages of the templates and generated code is ensured. This includes the syntactical correctness of the template metalanguage and the output language. Third, case studies show that the achieved goals are applicable in practice. It is even shown that syntactical correctness helps to prevent cross-site scripting attacks in web applications. The target audience of this book is twofold. The first group exists of researcher interested in the mathematical background of templates. The second group exists of users of templates. This includes designers of template engines on one side and programmers and web designers using templates on the other side
This book explains how to use R software to teach econometrics by providing interesting examples, using actual data applied to important policy issues. It helps readers choose the best method from a wide array of tools and packages available. The data used in the examples along with R program snippets, illustrate the economic theory and sophisticated statistical methods extending the usual regression. The R program snippets are not merely given as black boxes, but include detailed comments which help the reader better understand the software steps and use them as templates for possible extension and modification.
