Power interruptions of the scale of the North American Blackout of 2003 are rare, but they still loom as a possibility. Will the aging infrastructure fail because deregulated monopolies have no financial incentives to upgrade? Is centralized planning becoming subordinate to market forces? Understanding Electric Utilities and De-Regulation, Second Edition provides an updated, non-technical description that sheds light on the nature of the industry and the issues involved in its transition away from a regulated environment. The book begins by broadly surveying the industry, from a regulated utility structure to the major concepts of de-regulation to the history of electricity, the technical aspects, and the business of power. Then, the authors delve into the technologies and functions on which the industry operates; the many ways that power is used; and the various means of power generation, including central generating stations, renewable energy, and single-household size generators. The authors then devote considerable attention to the details of regulation and de-regulation. To conclude, one new chapter examines aging infrastructures and reliability of service, while another explores the causes of blackouts and how they can be prevented. Based on the authors' extensive experience, Understanding Electric Utilities and De-Regulation, Second Edition offers an up-to-date perspective on the major issues impacting the daily operations as well as the long-term future of the electric utilities industry.

Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory

Autore: Elsie Walker
Editore: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 0190219130

Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory breaks new ground by redirecting the arguments of foundational texts within film theory to film sound tracks. Walker includes sustained analyses of particular films according to a range of theoretical approaches: psychoanalysis, feminism, genre studies, post-colonialism, and queer theory. The films come from disparate temporal and industrial contexts: from Classical Hollywood Gothic melodrama (Rebecca) to contemporary, critically-acclaimed science fiction (Gravity). Along with sound tracks from canonical American films including The Searchers and To Have and Have Not, Walker analyzes independent Australasian films: examples include Heavenly Creatures, a New Zealand film that uses music to empower its queer female protagonists; and Ten Canoes, the first Australian feature film with a script entirely in Aboriginal languages. Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory thus not only calls new attention to the significance of sound tracks, but also focuses on the sonic power of characters representing those whose voices have all too often been drowned out. Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory is both rigorous and accessible to all students and scholars with a grasp of cinematic and musical structures. Moreover, the book brings together film studies, musicology, history, politics, and culture and therefore resonates across the liberal arts.

Step by Step Machine Sewing Basics is the first volume in a series of books that give sewing instructions at progressive levels of expertise.

The author assumes the person reading and following the instructions in this book is a person without any knowledge of sewing or is supervising a young person learning to sew. The Learn to Sew book series is also a great way to teach home schooled students, girls scouts or other learning clubs how to sew in a step by step process, or to validate or correct previously self-taught techniques. After reading and performing the projects in this book, you will have a good understanding of the basic stitches and how to sew them, including sewing a straight stitch in a straight line, circle, or a box with 90° corners, and sewing a zigzag stitch as well as knowing what it is used for. You will also learn the triple stretch stitch, back stitch, buttonhole stitch, and hem stitch, sewing terms, and more. You who already have a good understanding of machine sewing basics may want to review your skills with this book or start at a level in the series that more closely matches your level of understanding. The Learn to Sew book series includes topics from beginner sewing to couture sewing and everything in between.
