The AD630 is a high precision balanced modulator/demodulator that combines a flexible commutating architecture with the accuracy and temperature stability afforded by laser wafer trimmed thin film resistors. A network of on-board applications resistors provides precision closed-loop gains of ±1 and ±2 with 0.05% accuracy (AD630B). These resistors may also be used to accurately configure multiplexer gains of 1, 2, 3, or 4. External feedback enables high gain or complex switched feedback topologies.
Winner of the First Prize in ENT at the 2008 BMA (British Medical Association) Medical Book Competition This book is a comprehensive guide to the delicate and complex reconstructive procedures for the external ear. Featuring concise descriptions, step-by-step instructions, and numerous beforeand after photos, this book provides surgeons with the essential knowledge that successful surgery in this difficult field demands. The text opens with an overview of the anatomy and anthropometry of the external ear, aesthetic principles of auricular reconstruction, and the basic principles of plastic surgery. Separate sections of the book provide in-depth discussion of the techniques for managing tumors, trauma and non-inflammatory processes, auricular defects, and abnormalities. Features: More than 1,300 illustrations and photographs that aid comprehension of auricular problems and surgical steps Detailed discussion of classification of auricular defects and abnormalities Coverage of the radiologic examination of malformations of the petrous temporal bone An incomparable reference for all surgeons specializing in treating defects and disorders of the external ear, this volume succeeds beautifully in capturing the myriad creative, scientific, and technical facets of auricular reconstruction.
Motivation is both simple and complex. The definition itself is simple - the internal process and external factors that drive us toward a given goal. The ideas behind and the nuances within motivation, however, are complicated. There are professors out there who have spent years, endless hours researching and documenting motivation, trying to figure out what exactly it is that drives the human mind forward. The reason you picked this book up is because you´re after something. There´s a goal in your sight, even if that goal is just to list everything you want to accomplish in life. No goal is too big or too small - you can, and should, work toward them all. In this book, we will discuss motivation, how to fight the urge to give up and how to carry on even when the going gets tough. This book will contain a real-life story of a close friend of mine, who we will call Joe. He recently crossed a finish line on a very important goal in his life, and I hope his story - as well as the rest of the content in this book - will help you press on. Don´t be a loser! Don´t give up! In big ways and small, you have invested in yourself to push you toward a goal. Losing that time, that energy and everything you worked for just because the going gets tough is not an option. 1. Language: English. Narrator: L. David Harris.

A pair of Acona Biconbi sculptural chandeliers by Italian polymath Bruno Munari (1904-1998). Bruno Munari was one of the most important figures in Italian art and design of the 20th century. He was a true polymath working with equal proficiency as artist, sculptor, industrial designer, graphic designer, film maker, writer, and poet. Munari contributed fundamentals to many fields of visual arts in modernism, futurism, and concrete art, and in non visual arts (literature, poetry) with his research on games, didactic method, movement, tactile learning, kinesthetic learning, and creativity. These chandeliers form part of Munari´s series of Acona Biconbi sculptures, which were a series of variations based on the same basic sculptural form and formed part of Munari´s series of experiments in what became known as ´arte programmata´ i.e. programmed art during the 1960s. The complex form of the chandeliers is made up of a series of identical chrome plated steel sculptural elements which are riveted together to form a complex whole. This external reflective steel sculptural skin in turn envelopes an internal white enameled steel sphere, into which are inserted seven chromed head reflector light bulbs, which both illuminate and create a complex interplay of light, shadow, and sculptural form. An example of Munari´s Acona Biconbi series of sculptures can be seen in French decorator Francois Catroux´s own Parisian apartment interior, which was published in the February 1970 edition of Casa Vogue. Catroux was decorator to Pierre Berge, Yves Saint Laurent, Mila Schön, Guy de Rothschild, etc. This design is also documented in Christie´s 20th century interiors auction in September 2008.
The external lives of Clark, a high school guidance counselor, and Charlotte, a bookkeeper, are utterly ordinary, but their interior lives are as bold and complex as abstract paintings colored by imagined possibilities, childhood joys and, more darkly, by deeply buried fears. When Clark rescues a young boy from drowning, a chain of events - some comic, some harrowing - is set in motion, revealing the fault lines of the couple´s marriage and individual psyches. Amity Gaige is a consummate stylist. Her every sentence contains a tiny world - marrying striking images to deep, soulful ideas in perfectly concise fashion. 1. Language: English.

A vivid memoir of food and family, survival and triumph, Love, Loss, and What We Ate traces the arc of Padma Lakshmi´s unlikely path from an immigrant childhood to a complicated life in front of the camera - a tantalizing blend of Ruth Reichl´s Tender at the Bone and Nora Ephron´s Heartburn. Long before Padma Lakshmi ever stepped onto a television set, she learned that how we eat is an extension of how we love, how we comfort, how we forge a sense of home - and how we taste the world as we navigate our way through it. Shuttling between continents as a child, she lived a life of dislocation that would become habit as an adult, never quite at home in the world. And yet, through all her travels, her favorite food remained the simple rice she first ate sitting on the cool floor of her grandmother´s kitchen in South India. Poignant and surprising, Love, Loss, and What We Ate is Lakshmi´s extraordinary account of her journey from that humble kitchen, ruled by ferocious and unforgettable women, to the judges´ table of Top Chef and beyond. It chronicles the fierce devotion of the remarkable people who shaped her along the way, from her headstrong mother, who flouted conservative Indian convention to make a life in New York, to her Brahmin grandfather - a brilliant engineer with an irrepressible sweet tooth - to the man seemingly wrong for her in every way who proved to be her truest ally. A memoir rich with sensual prose and punctuated with evocative recipes, it is alive with the scents, tastes, and textures of a life that spans complex geographies both internal and external. Love, Loss, and What We Ate is an intimate and unexpected story of food and family - both the ones we are born to and the ones we create - and their enduring legacies. ): PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio... 1.
