A catalogue based on the exhibition "The Echoes That Remain" held in Newton, MA, which displayed the author's collection of postal material (postcards, envelopes, and letters) sent through regular mail channels in Nazi-occupied Europe during the Holocaust years, and some postwar material. The whole history of the Holocaust - the Nazis' first anti-Jewish measures, Jewish refugees' flight from the Reich, experiences in ghettos and concentration camps, wartime aid and rescue, and the commemoration of the victims - is illustrated in this material.

For many decades, hybrid devices have been used to connect 2-wire local circuits and 4-wire long distance circuits in telephone lines. This leads to a weIl known problem, whereby echoes are generated. The delay introduced by telecommunication satellites exacerbated this problem and the need for new methods of echo control soon became obvious. The best solution to date for solving this problem was invented in the 1960s at Bell Labs by Kelly, Logan, and Sondhi, and consists of identifying the echo path generated by the hybrid by means of an adaptive filter, a technique that became known as an echo canceler. The echo canceler allowed full-duplex communication which was not possible with older echo suppression techniques. Later, with the development of hands-free teleconferencing systems, an other echo problem appeared; but this time the echo was due to the coupling between the loudspeaker and microphone. It is not surprising that the same solution was proposed to solve this problem, and most of today's telecon ferencing systems have an acoustic echo canceler. More recently, attention has been given to the very interesting problem of multichannel acoustic echo cancellation, which leads to more exciting applications that take advantage of our binaural auditory system.

Since the introduction of ultrasound in cardiology in the mid fifties, echocar diography has continued to grow and has finally become, in particular after the introduction of Doppler modalities, the working horse of the cardiologist. Although many books have been written on this subject Dr. Hamer's book is a very valuable contribution, as it provides, in particular information for practicing clinicians and technicians. Clearly written and nicely illustrated, this book is a must for those interested in this field. C.A. Visser Professor of Echocardiology Preface Trans-thoracic echocardiography is a patient friendly technique without pain or discomfort. It is harmless and the patient can relax during the examination. With these advantages in mind there is hardly any technique in cardiology that can provide so much valuable information about the function of the heart. If Doppler and color Doppler, also painless techniques, are added to echo cardiography additional information about blood flow velocities, insufficiency and stenosis of valves, detection of shunts etc. is obtainable. Less patient friendly but - if selectively used - very informative, is trans esophageal (color Doppler) echocardiography.

Remain in Your Calling explores the way the Apostle Paul negotiates and transforms existing social identities of the Corinthian Christ-followers in order to extend his gentile mission. Building on the findings of Tucker's first monograph, You Belong to Christ: Paul and the Formation of Social Identity in 1 Corinthians 1-4, this work expands the focus to the rest of 1 Corinthians. The study addresses the way Paul forms Christ-movement identity and the kind of identity that emerges from his kinship formation. It examines the way previous Jewish and gentile social identities continue but are also transformed "in Christ." It then provides case studies from 1 Corinthians that show the way social-scientific criticism and ancient source material provide insights concerning Paul's formational goals. The first looks at the way Roman water practices and patronage influence baptismal practices in Corinth. The next uncovers the challenges associated with the transformation of the Roman household when it functions as sacred space within the ekklesia. The final study investigates the way Paul uses apocalyptic discourse to recontextualize the Corinthians' identity in order to remind them that God, rather than the Roman Empire, is in control of history.

Tokharian Tales is a collection of post-futuristic seemingly science-fictional short stories set on an Earth that is being abandoned, including a love story about a scientist who falls in love with a ghost ... a romance that goes horribly wrong on the floating bridge between Hawaii and Viva-Mexico ... a story set in the Outzone, the dark underbelly of the internet ... a retro-futuristic novella about a quixotic social anarchist who dreams of spaceships during her datura trances ... storybook-tales for 67th century children about robots and replicants, osterlings and Oospheroids ... and the adventure of Shridmar Joe, Hovercipher Pro, in the most dangerous dance of a strangeous game you've ever played! Thousand years ago, the Tokharians lived in a lush oasis with orchards and vineyards where they grew gourds and peaches, melons and grapes. They had iron-smelting furnaces and Buddhist stupas. Merchants rested under mulberry trees, and in the marketplace they sold Chinese brides, Kashmir wool, Bactrian rubies and lapis-lazuli. Gone now, desert now: the oasis has dried up, and a desert wind blows sand over the shattered stupas, the stumps of mulberry trees. The Tokharians either departed or they died in the desert which overtook them. But distance yourself: the same thing is happening again as we dismantle the Earth to fly to the stars. The same desert wind blows over America, over the ruins of Santa Fe and New York City. The wats and shrines of Thailand have been unbricked, removed, and re-assembled in orbit around distant stars. Likewise, the massive Mesoamerican suntemples of Viva-Mexico have been transplanted to the jungle greens and desert sandstonewhites of other planets aroundindigo-orange stars.... About the author: Jason Murk is an existential anarchist from New Mexico who flies through the summer skies in sadhoo-tripsterly tradition in his own hovercipher. What's a hovercipher? You might as well ask what's existential anarchism - open this book and find out!

Thousands of people were driven into exile by Germany's National Socialist regime from 1933 onward. For many German-speaking artists and writers Paris became a temporary capital. The archives of these exiles became "displaced objects" - scattered, stolen, confiscated, and often destroyed, but also frequently preserved. This book assesses previously unknown source material stored at the Moscow State Military Archive (RVGA) since the end of the war, and offers new insights into the activities of German-speaking exiles in the 1930s in Paris and Europe. Against the backdrop of current debates surrounding displaced cultural goods and their restitution, this work seeks to facilitate a transnational, interdisciplinary scientific dialogue.

These Proceedings, consisting of Parts A and B, contain the edited versions of most of the papers presented at the annual Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation held at the University of California San Diego, in La Jolla, California on July 19- July 24, 1992. The Review was organized by the Center for NDE at Iowa State University and the Ames Laboratory of the USDOE in cooperation with a number of organizations including the Air Force Wright Laboratory Materials Directorate, the American Society for Nondestructive Testing, the Center for NDE at Johns Hopkins University, the Department of Energy, the Federal Aviation Administration, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the National Science Foundation IndustrylUniversity Cooperative Research Centers, and the Working Group in Quantitative NDE. This year's Review of Progress in QNDE was attended by approximately 475 participants from the U. S. and many foreign countries who presented over 380 papers. With such a large volume of work to review, the meeting was divided into 36 sessions with as many as four sessions running concurrently. The Review covered all phases of NDE research and development from fundamental investigations to engineering applications or inspection systems, and it included all methods of inspection science from acoustics to x-rays. During the last twenty years, the participants of the Review have contributed to its steady growth. Thanks to their efforts, the Review is today one of the largest and most significant gatherings of NDE researchers and engineers anywhere in the world.

This monograph is a review of the present state of knowledge of the relationships and consequences of over 25 centuries of interactions between the Amerindian and Asean Circum-Pacific regions. A fascinating, special case of previous work by two Asianists on similar themes of the Euro-Asian Continental land mass, providing the theoretical framework within which the complexities of cultural cross-pattern are studied.The subjects dicussed individually begin with the elements of recording and writing, continuing through the arts, religion, folklore and an eventual examination of the natural sciences and technology. There is also a discussion in this context of evidence from and the relevance of ethno-botany, ethno-zoology and ethno-helminthology.The underlying thesis of this volume is the relative independence and powerfully original development and evolution of Amerindian cultures and societies in Central and South America.
