Expertly translated and updated from the original French, Audition offers a broad, detailed, and up-to-date treatment of the physiology of hearing. It includes a substantial section on auditory psychophysics as well as brief introductions to physical acoustics, musical acoustics, anatomy, and clinical topics. The book's clear, direct style and its more than 180 well-chosen, informative, and easily understood figures make it accessible not only to upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in the basic and clinical neurosciences but also to students in professional training programs such as otolaryngology or audiology. Audition is divided into three major sections. The first concerns the psychophysics of hearing and covers nonlinear phenomena, perception of complex tones, and musical scales. The second covers the anatomy and physiology of the ear, beginning with data from earlier and more recent studies of auditory-nerve fibers, proceeding to cochlear mechanics, and ending with current findings regarding cochlear transduction. The third deals with the central nervous system, detailing aspects of the auditory pathway and including a useful section on the relationship between auditory psychophysics and current neurophysiological research. Audition concludes with appendixes on deafness and evoked potentials and a comprehensive bibliography. Pierre Buser is Professor in the Department of Comparative Neurophysiology at the Universite Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris. Michel Imbert is Professor in the Department of Visual Neuroscience, also at the Universite Pierre et Marie Curie. R. H. Kay is Emeritus Fellow of Keble College, Oxford.
#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER The most important woman in the history of television journalism gives us her inspiring and riveting memoir. After more than fifty years of interviewing heads of state, world leaders, movie stars, criminals, murderers, inspirational figures, and celebrities of all kinds, Barbara Walters has turned her gift for examination onto herself to reveal the forces that shaped her extraordinary life. Barbara Walters’s perception of the world was formed at a very early age. Her father, Lou Walters, was the owner and creative mind behind the legendary Latin Quarter nightclub, and it was his risk-taking lifestyle that gave Barbara her first taste of glamour. It also made her aware of the ups and downs, the insecurities, and even the tragedies that can occur when someone is willing to take great risks, for Lou Walters didn’t just make several fortunes—he also lost them. Barbara learned early about the damage that such an existence can do to relationships—between husband and wife as well as between parent and child. Through her roller-coaster ride of a childhood, Barbara had a close companion, her mentally challenged sister, Jackie. True, Jackie taught her younger sister much about patience and compassion, but Barbara also writes honestly about the resentment she often felt having a sister who was so “different” and the guilt that still haunts her. All of this—the financial responsibility for her family, the fear, the love—played a large part in the choices she made as she grew up: the friendships she developed, the relationships she had, the marriages she tried to make work. Ultimately, thanks to her drive, combined with a decent amount of luck, she began a career in television. And what a career it has been! Against great odds, Barbara has made it to the top of a male-dominated industry. She was the first woman cohost of the Today show, the first female network news coanchor, the host and producer of countless top-rated Specials, the star o

A Theatre group is holding auditions for a Murder Mystery called "Death of A Disco Dancer". All of the typical actors show up to audition. There is Mia Monahan - the militant method actress, Amber Frost- the ditzy Drama queen, Chad - the energetic actor who never seems to get a part in anything, Alan- the accomplished Theatre Major who works at a fast-food place in the meantime. Troy May - the ego-centric actor who always gets a role and his gorgeous assistant Tantanya who holds his imported bottled water and carries his Portfolio. And last but not least, Mrs. Needleman and her precious daughter Julie, fresh from the Little Miss Pumpkin Pageant finals. The auditions get underway without too many problems, well a few.. Well, all right, you see, the thing is.. the Director Vivian Vinderlou and assistant director Reed Moore have a bit of the problem with "script". The problem is they don't have enough copies for everyone. And the bigger problem is they don't actually have a finished script. Jim Culter- the playwright arrives in the nick of time with a few more copies and a few more finished pages just as one of the actors mysteriously dies. As luck would have it, Jim has brought Inspector Bonnie Brauvera along to the auditions to serve as Technical advisor for the play.
