PL/SQL is the Oracle Procedural Language extension of SQL. PL/SQL is integrated within the Oracle database. A PL/SQL program can have both SQL statements and procedural statements. In the program, the SQL statements are used to access sets of data stored in a database, while the procedural statements are used to process individual piece of data and control the program flow, by applying, for example, the PL/SQL's if-then-else and looping structures. This book, Oracle PL/SQL Programming Fundamentals By Examples, is for PL/SQL beginners. If you have no prior or limited skill of PL/SQL, and you want to learn the Oracle PL/SQL programming language the practical way, then this book is perfect for you. When you finish reading the book and trying its examples, you would have equipped yourself with PL/SQL fundamental skills to start writing some PL/SQL programs for a real-world development project. Source codes listing of the examples are included in the Appendix of the book.
The United States of America is in crisis, not due to external threats, but to our own domestic and international policies. At home, our crumbling public school systems fail the next generation. Wealth distribution is completely skewed, favoring a small group over the majority. Religious and racial intolerance influences even the smallest political or social decisions.
Abroad, an aggressive, "America-first" foreign policy leaves the United States with fewer and fewer allies and a reputation for oppression and military force. As for the environment, political and cultural attitudes encourage an unsustainable spiral of destruction.
In Thoughts of a Domestic Observer, Scott Edward Belbey invites readers to consider and face the many factors and influences driving the steady downfall of the United States of America. This is not a book of false hope. This is an unflinching examination of the challenges the nation faces-challenges and assumptions with homegrown origins affecting all walks of life.
Is the decline of the United States inevitable? The answer depends on whether or not Americans, both as a nation and as members of the international community, can change deeply rooted beliefs and behaviors. At present, the future does not look promising.
