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 ± 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.
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.
A Bridge Across Two Worlds "Nan Umrigar's astonishing and well-illustrated story will certainly open up many minds. It asks many questions and provides some answers that give new insights of life's greatest mysteries." - Reincarnation International Magazine, U. K. "I had absolutely no leanings towards spirituality or spiritualism for that matter," says Nan Umrigar. "And I must admit that the space for God remained restricted to simple visits to the Zoroastrian fire temple on birthdays and auspicious occasions. But all of this changed with the death of my son Karl, a champion jockey, whose accident on the race track of Mumbai cut short a brilliant career. After Karl's death, we felt betrayed and gave up God and religion and the belief that if you were good, kind and truthful, nothing would go wrong. My grieving family questioned the unjust hand of fate, and nothing could fill the void, till the time I met some people who communicated with their loved ones from the spirit world." Soon, Nan also began communicating with her son and received messages that were to change her life forever. Karl was determined to show his mother the way to happiness. Sounds came in from the silence - conquering the great divide and proving that there is something far beyond the life we live. Sounds of Silence traces in moving detail her joy at coming in touch with Karl once again, and her gradual introduction to Meher Baba, her son's guru in the afterlife. In Sounds of Silence Nan bares her soul, reflecting her own initial scepticism and doubts, until the weight of the evidence left her in no doubt about the reality of the messages. This is a book that challenges many concepts about life and death and particularly life after death. Originally self-published, Sounds of Silence fast became an 'underground' bestseller, and a tremendous source of strength for thousands who were drawn to it. This is a story of a mother's unrelenting hope, and of a love that never dies.
Colonial encounters between indigenous peoples and European state powers are overarching themes in the historical archaeology of the modern era, and postcolonial historical archaeology has repeatedly emphasized the complex two-way nature of colonial encounters. The volume examines common trajectories in indigenous colonial histories, and explores new ways to understand cultural contact, hybridization and power relations between indigenous peoples and colonial powers from the indigenous point of view. By bringing together a wide geographical range and combining multiple sources such as oral histories, historical record, and contemporary discourses with archaeological data, the volume finds new multivocal interpretations of colonial histories.
War isn't a testament to a man's strength-finding peace with it is. Navy SEAL Caden Lawless is coming home. Holding his best friend as he bled out in the Afghanistan desert, Caden became bound by Justin's desperate plea to care for his fianc�e and to love the son he'd never know. Battling a barrage of memories and with a head full of noise, Caden travels cross country in his beat up Chevy to make good on his promise. One knock on Piper Stevens' door and he knows she isn't broken. Pregnant and mourning the only man she's ever loved, Piper wields her anger as a sword, slashing into Caden's grief and his heart. As Caden works to silence his demons, he finds a new mission, one far away from the heat and depravity that clawed its way into his soul. He demands his way into Piper's life, intent on helping her pick up the pieces. But even as the tentative fingers of a burgeoning friendship spread into something far deeper than either believed possible, duty calls for Caden to return to the battlefield. Fate brought them together-will war tear them apart? Or will Caden reclaim the sound of silence and remain with the woman who taught him love didn't die in the desert?

Does it really exist? Mihkel certainly hasn’t given it much consideration. Perhaps he’s never experienced real silence. Mihkel lives in the city where there is constant noise all around him. He listens to the radio, the TV, and plays computer games, all with the volume turned up to maximum. His parents are forever telling him to turn down the volume. Perhaps Mihkel is just arguing with the world he knows, by trying to make more noise than the city around him. A visit to his grandparents in the country changes things when the farmhouse loses power for several days. Mihkel learns to listen to the silence, to listen to the sounds of life around him, the not-so-noisy sounds of life. Even the grains of sand under his feet, the fog in the evening and the gently blowing curtains have a sound of their own. Has Mihkel learned that silence really doesn’t exist? Has he learned that the sounds in the silence can be very entertaining and certainly not boring? In The Sounds of Silence, Heiki Vilep has written a story about silence, or the lack thereof. He presents a lively young boy who loves to keep busy and to be surrounded by noises all of the time. It is a story about respecting the world around us, to listen to the silences and to learn from the silences. It is a story about the sounds that are ever-present, even in a world too noisy to really listen. With colorful illustrations, this is a valuable story to teach young people to listen, to really listen. readersfavorite.com/book-review/the-sounds-of-silence
