Several of his albums from the 1950s and 60s combining elements of Japanese music with the big band style received renewed attention in the 1990s as part of the exotica/cocktail/lounge revival. Shindo’s career is significant for the study of Asian American history, musical exoticism and racial representation, and the history of Japanese American jazz. Although he was clearly exceptional and not representative of Nisei musicians, his life and career were fundamentally shaped by the Nisei experience..
The initial boundary of each leaf patch is refined using a level set method, optimising the model based on image information, curvature constraints and the position of neighbouring surfaces. The reconstruction process makes few assumptions about the nature of the plant material being reconstructed. As such it is applicable to a wide variety of plant species and topologies, and can be extended to canopy scale imaging.
Not along after this military triumph, Alexander’s troops mutinied and demanded that the journey back west be commenced. The soldiers were weary with fighting; besides, if we recall the common perception of India, the country has a way of taking a toll of people. The heat, dust, dirt, and mosquitoes of India have been known to enfeeble the sturdiest man! However, according to Plutarch, one of the principal sources for Alexander’s military sojourn in India, the Greek soldiers had been instigated to revolt by a number of naked philosophers.
The paper develops a fast simulation model of active front end rectifiers based on the dynamic phasor concept. The model is suitable for accelerated simulation studies of EPS under normal, unbalanced and line fault conditions. The performance and effectiveness of the developed model have been demonstrated by comparison against time domain models in three phase and synchronous space vector representations.
In the Nineties American films are homogenized and Muzaked to the point of being echt suburban. Whether the action is low key and soporific as in Contact or noisy and bombastic as in nearly everything else, movies are designed to put audiences in a fugue state, which my dictionary describes as “a disturbed state of consciousness in which the one affected seems to perform acts in full awareness but upon recovery cannot recollect the deeds.”2. The We GenerationIf kids can’t lose themselves in a story, chances are they’ll never be willing to sacrifice the familiar for a taste of a wider world.
It was really quite amazing especially taken in context with the performance I saw on Saturday by Bob Dylan, a singer that clearly never drank from Browne’s Fountain of Youth. (I’m not hating, I’m just saying.) It’s like Jackson has taken on Dick Clark’s former role, and is now playing the guy that never ages. According to a press release, the singer is ill, suffering from a bout with fatigue.
