SYNOPSIS : The sound of silence is like a subtlety behind everything that you awaken to; you don't notice it if you're seeking the extremes. Yet as we start to become more poised, more present, fully receptive of all this moment has to offer, we start to experience it vividly and listening to it can draw us ever--deeper into the mysteries of now. Always skillful and good humored, Ajahn Sumedho's teachings defy boundaries. Anyone--from laypeople looking to deepen their grasp of the Buddha's message, to lifetime Buddhist monastics--will appreciate the author's sparkling insights into to such key Buddhist themes as awareness, consciousness, identity, relief from suffering, and mindfulness of the body. The Sound of Silence represents the best of Ajahn Sumedho's masterful work to help us all see each life with a new and sustaining clarity.

SYNOPSIS : There is a wide field of tasks left that can only be satisfyingly attacked with the help of old-fashioned analogue technology, and one of the most important are amplifiers for analogue signals. The strongly expanded content of the second edition of "the sound of silence" leads to affordable amplifier design approaches which will end up in lowest-noise solutions not far away from the edge of physical boundaries set by room temperature and given cartridges - thus, fully compatible with very expensive so called "high-end" or "state-of-the-art" offers on today markets - and, from a noise point of view in most cases outperforming them! With easy to follow mathematical treatment it is demonstrated as well that theory is not far away from reality. Measured SNs will be found within 1dB off the calculated ones and deviations from the exact amplifier transfer won't cross the Β± 0.1dB tolerance lines. Additionally, the book presents measurement set-ups and results. Consequently, comparisons with measurement results of test magazine will soon become easier to perform. This new edition includes a new chapters about reference levels, Noise in Amp Input sections, Humming Problems, and much more.

SYNOPSIS : The contributions to Iconic Investigations deal with linguistic or literary aspects of language. While some studies analyze the cognitive structures of language, others pay close attention to the sounds of spoken language and the visual characteristics of written language. In addition this volume also contains studies of media types such as music and visual images that are integrated into the overall project to deepen the understanding of iconicity Β– the creation of meaning by way of similarity relations. Iconicity is a fundamental but relatively unexplored part of signification in language and other media types. During the last decades, the study of iconicity has emerged as a vital research area with far-reaching interdisciplinary scope and the volume should be of interest for students and researchers interested in scholarly fields such as semiotics, cognitive linguistics, conceptual metaphor studies, poetry, intermediality, and multimodality.

SYNOPSIS : The intense and continuing popularity of the long-running television show Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003) has long been matched by the range and depth of the academic critical response. This volume, the first devoted to the show's imaginative and widely varied use of music, sound and silence, helps to develop an increasingly important and inadequately covered area of research - the many roles of music in contemporary television. Chapters focus on scoring and source music, the title theme, the music production process, the critically acclaimed musical episode (voted number 13 in Channel Four's One Hundred Greatest Musicals), the symbolic and dramatic use of silence, and the popular reception of the show by its international fan base. In keeping with contemporary trends in the study of popular musics, a variety of critical approaches are taken from musicology, cultural studies, and media and communication studies, specifically employing critique, musical analysis, industry studies and hermeneutics.

SYNOPSIS : The sound of silence is a book about nature, love and relationships.Nature has a profound touch or intimacy with man.This "touch" is most significant in all our interactions with it (nature itself).Incidentally, many do not have the time or the consciousness to tap into this refreshing and recreating power, that is manifest all around us.No wonder the Almighty in his initial plan, placed man in a garden! In this book such poems as Dilemma of a seer, Sunrise at dawn, The sound of silence and Friends of yesteryears among others are reflections on the power, light and language of nature. The power and influence of love on the human soul seems to have a subtle similarity with that exerted by nature.The only difference being in the mode and dimensions of operation.While the touch of nature is gentle and persuasive, the power of love is passionate and compelling.Most of us are aware of the ecstatic feelings of an evening-out, spent with a loved one in the presence of a retiring sunset.The silhouette of a beautiful mountain, set on fire by such an evening sun.Even the unpoetic begin to manifest poetic tendencies under such scenario.Such titles as A pathetic sunset, A hopeful mid-day, I saw a tombstone, The day we parted, My best friend, among others, are reflections on love and nature.Some common experiences we encounter in relationships are also represented in some titles in this book, as much as possible my posture had been honest and non judgemental especially with those true- life and personal experiences.The good, the bad, and the not-so bad as well as the pure fictional compositions.Some of this titles include among others, the following;To the one that used to love me, Will you marry me, Good journey, Book keeping, Responsibility, Constantly, Letters of gold, Ever learning, and Nothing more to lose.It is left to the discerning reader to discriminate between the figurative use of language in this book towards achieving hopefully, a worthwhile appreciation of this work, while trully believing that "when the chronicles are done, your name will be there with mine, written side by side in letters of gold"!
