The Lantern Cage from the Author: Kelly Grovier. The poems in Kelly Grovier's third collection share a fascination with the mysteries that underlie our everyday existence, that other world' we sense in the undeciphered sands' shifting at our feet. By turns lyrical and philosophical, elegiac and playful, The Lantern Cage is a collection located on the margins of vision, where the invisible calculations of being remain unsolvable - a realm whose secrets are kept under lough and quay'.

Lantern Lit Vol 2 from the Author: Michael Haeflinger. A dervishly coordinated fusion of particle press heroics, compressed into a well-honed secular engine and held together by a burly split weld.Here are three prominent voices from the supposed modern era underground. Strict poetry for those disenfranchised with the aforementioned. Verse that does not succumb to a generality nor grandeur, poetry that commands itself. A gospel within a gospel, poetry for bent backs, bloody lips, spit on bricks, and love affairs where every kiss is remembered as just a kiss and yet all or any of this is an admissible necessity for the ballyhoo...perhaps only the wolves can hear.

Industrial Applications Of Fuzzy Technology from the Author: Kaoru Hirota. The application of fuzzy technology is widely known as a technological revolution. Shortly after it appeared, its value has rapidly become appreciated. It is absolutely indispensable for introducing the latest developments not only domestically but also internationally. This book is arranged to introduce easy to understand explanations mainly centered on concrete applications. It consists of twelve chapters in total which are all independently readable and provide different approaches on various projects. The minimum of Fuzzy Theory that is needed to understand its practical applications is given in Chapter 1. Chapters 2 to 5 discuss hardware, including chips, and software tools used in constructing system. Chapters 6 to 12 cover a series of practical applications. These in clude applications for industrial processes and plants, transportation systems, which were among the first applications, and applications for consumer products such as household electrical appliances. These elements together finally produced the worldwide "Fuzzy Boom". This book can be read by a wide variety of people, from undergraduate and graduate students in universities to practical engineers and project managers working in plants. The information contained in this book is a first step to this field of interest.

Magic Lantern Empire from the Author: John Phillip Short. Magic Lantern Empire examines German colonialism as a mass cultural and political phenomenon unfolding at the center of a nascent, conflicted German modernity. John Phillip Short draws together strands of propaganda and visual culture, science and fantasy to show how colonialism developed as a contested form of knowledge that both reproduced and blurred class difference in Germany, initiating the masses into a modern market worldview. A nuanced account of how ordinary Germans understood and articulated the idea of empire, this book draws on a diverse range of sources: police files, spy reports, pulp novels, popular science writing, daily newspapers, and both official and private archives. In Short's historical narrative-peopled by fantasists and fabulists, by impresarios and amateur photographers, by ex-soldiers and rank-and-file socialists, by the luckless and bored along the margins of German society-colonialism emerges in metropolitan Germany through a dialectic of science and enchantment within the context of sharp class conflict. He begins with the organized colonial movement, with its expert scientific and associational structures and emphatic exclusion of the "masses." He then turns to the grassroots colonialism that thrived among the lower classes, who experienced empire through dime novels, wax museums, and panoramas. Finally, he examines the ambivalent posture of Germany's socialists, who mounted a trenchant critique of colonialism, while in their reading rooms workers spun imperial fantasies. It was from these conflicts, Short argues, that there first emerged in the early twentieth century a modern German sense of the global.
