<b>At the start of the 1960s the USA was unquestionably the wealthiest and most powerful nation in the world.<br /><br />Yet despite its prosperity and influence there were areas of the country which seemed to have been forgotten.</b><br /><br />In 1962 Harry Caudill, a lawyer and legislator, decided to shine a light upon the appalling conditions which he witnessed in Eastern Kentucky.<br /><br />His introduction lays out the issues which he saw before him: <em>A million Americans in the Southern Appalachians live in conditions of squalor, ignorance and ill health which could scarcely be equaled in Europe or Japan or, perhaps, in parts of mainland Asia.</em><br /><br />Caudill begins with the history of region, from its first settlements through to the Civil War, the feuds that erupted between violent neighbors, the emerging lumber trade and the advent of the coal industry, before uncovering the devastation of the depression, the effects of massive environmental damage and the ever continuing decline into poverty and despair for many of the inhabitants.<br /><br />“Mr. Caudill’s richly informed and sobering account of the Cumberlands’ painful plight is the product not only of thorough research, but also of an intimate knowledge of the region and its people.” <em>Saturday Review</em><br /><br />“The picture he has assembled is clear without undue simplification, and forceful without spurious appeal to emotion. … In the social, economic, and legislative battles which must be fought, and fought soon if the people of our Southern Appalachians are ever to be relieved of their very real and pressing difficulties, no finer single weapon can be imagined than this one book.” <em> Kirkus Reviews</em><br /><br />“The pathetic history of the Cumberland Plateau in Eastern Kentucky illustrates the results, for men and nature, of unregulated free enterprise, the pre-eminence of the rights of property, and the absence of responsible public supervision.” <em>The New York Review of Books</em><br /><br />“<em>Night Comes to the Cumberlands,</em> focused nationwide attention on the plight of Appalachia's residents. President John F. Kennedy appointed a commission to investigate conditions in the region and his successor, Lyndon B. Johnson, made Appalachia a keystone of his War on Poverty.” <em>The New York Times</em><br /><br />The success of this book was immediately felt in the Cumberlands as in the quarter-century succeeding its publication more than $15 billion were spent in the impoverished region. But even though this injection of aid was widely appreciated Caudill and others stated that the forecast was still bleak and only marginal improvement had been made. <br /><br />This work is essential reading for anyone interested in the social history of the United States, the history of Kentucky and the continuing issue of poverty in rural areas.<br /><br />Harry Caudill as an American author, historian, lawyer, legislator, and environmentalist from Letcher County, in the coalfields of southeastern Kentucky. His influential book <em>Night Comes to the Cumberlands</em> was first published in 1962 and he passed away in 1990.

<b>An Invisible Danger on the Rise</b><br /><br />You eat organic and non-GMO food. You only drink purified water. You take care of yourself and your family's health. But could there be a silent, invisible danger causing potential harm to you and your loved ones? There could. And it's called electromagnetic frequency (EMF) radiation and it's one of fastest growing health issues facing our society. EMF radiation produced by modern technology such as cell phones, tablets, laptops, Wi-Fi, and smart meters is an emerging health threat, and we are all guinea pigs in a giant experiment with many unknown consequences.<br /><br /><b>But Aren't These Technologies Regulated and Safe?</b><br /><br />Surely the government and other regulatory agencies make sure these technologies are completely safe before they are approved for wide-spread use, right? Think again. Ninety-five percent of American adults use cell phones regularly. Most households have Wi-Fi. And even schools are increasingly becoming dependent on wireless devices. And yet none of these technologies have been proven safe to humans for long-term exposure.<br /><br />In fact, science confirms that the EMF emitted from common electronic devices can cause definite biological changes in the body, and mounting research has already shown it can lead to a long list of health concerns – some of which can be pretty serious.<br /><br />The explosive use of mobile devices only occurred over the last twenty years, yet we have only scratched the surface of what technology is yet to come. Children born today will be exposed to much higher doses of EMF radiation than those born just ten years ago. What are the ramifications and what can we do now to minimize the fallout?<br /><br /><b>Is There a Solution?</b><br /><br />Fortunately, there are simple and effective steps you can take to minimize the risks of dirty electricity. Education is key. With a foreword by Bulletproof's Dave Asprey, Radiation Nation is info-packed with all the essential education you need to make smart choices to stay safe when it comes to technology.<br /><br /><b>In Radiation Nation, you will learn:</b><br /><br />» The most practical precautions to protect yourself and your loved ones from EMF radiation<br />» What EMF radiation is and how it affects the body biologically<br />» The major health risks including fertility issues for both men and women, DNA damage, cell mutation, cancer and other serious health risks<br />» The EMF sources of greatest concern<br />» The latest scientific studies broken down by disease or condition<br />» How EMF radiation specifically affects children and those suffering with electromagnetic hypersensitivity<br />» Why the current safety standards for EMF are insufficient and need to be rewritten<br />» Do stickers, diodes, harmonizers and other products marketing as protection have any grounding in science?

Quantum physics originated from Max Planck’s great discovery of the quantum of energy in 1900. Exactly how was the quantum revolution ignited by Planck? Were there some devious roads he walked during his discovery? In his fascinating Nobel Lecture and Scientific Autobiography, which are carefully edited in this book, Planck told us how he discovered the quantum “after a few weeks of the most strenuous work” of his life, and what “an unexpected vista began to appear” after the darkness was lifted. In particular, he vividly recollected the wrong paths that he followed during his discovery, which may be the most intriguing part of his quantum story for general readers.<br /><br />Besides, this little book also includes Einstein’s famous tribute to Planck at his 60th birthday celebration, as well as an excerpt of the memorial address delivered by Max von Laue, Planck's former student and later his colleague and friend. These materials will further help us to understand what a quantum man Planck was and why he became a "reluctant" revolutionary.<br /><br />Book Excerpt:<br /><br />My mind absorbed avidly, like a revelation, the first law I knew to possess absolute, universal validity, independently from all human agency: The principle of the conservation of energy. I shall never forget the graphic story Müller told us, at his raconteur's best, of the bricklayer lifting with great effort a heavy block of stone to the roof of a house. The work he thus performs does not get lost; it remains stored up, perhaps for many years, undiminished and latent in the block of stone, until one day the block is perhaps loosened and drops on the head of some passerby.<br /><br />The effect of my dissertation on the physicists of those days was nil. None of my professors at the University had any understanding for its contents, as I learned for a fact in my conversations with them.<br /><br />My futile attempts to fit the elementary quantum of action somehow into the classical theory continued for a number of years, and they cost me a great deal of effort. Many of my colleagues saw in this something bordering on a tragedy. But I feel differently about it. For the thorough enlightenment I thus received was all the more valuable.<br /><br />A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.

<h1>Zen of Analog Circuit Design </h1><br /><b>RECENTLY UPDATED WITH NEW CONTENT</b><br />From 2011 till 2013, I taught a course titled <b>Analog Design for all</b> which covered concepts starting with MOS transistors and progressed till the design of two-stage amplifiers. The course introduced concepts in a manner that led the student to the <b>synthesis</b> of new circuits, not merely their <b>analysis</b>. But I still felt that there was a more intuitive way to introduce Analog Circuit Design, one that would bring out the beauty of the subject so that the student could ‘stop and smell the roses’. <br /><br />But why a ‘Zen of Analog’…?<br /><br />Because the foundational concepts in Analog closely mirror human relationships! The purpose of this book is to take a simplified and intuitive path to unlock some profound secrets of Analog. The protagonist of this book is Ang-Lao, a medieval monk who brings his insights into the Analog world to solve the challenges in human relationships.<br /><br />The book addresses a problem statement that much of Analog Circuit Design tries to solve - how do you realize an <b>ideal buffer</b>? It starts with the simple concepts of voltage sources and current sources. From the I-V curve of the MOS transistor, we see how it behaves much like a <b>Voltage controlled current source</b> (VCCS). The inherent challenge in getting even a simple two-transistor circuit to work is the conflict arising from having two such current source-like elements in series. The <b>digital inverter</b> is shown to be one such circuit that can function like an <b>analog amplifier</b>, albeit over a narrow range of input voltage. The effect of <b>loading</b> on such a circuit is illustrated graphically and is shown as an added challenge in getting it to work in an analog manner. <br /><br />Having understood the complications involved, we see how through the strikingly simple but immensely powerful concept of <b>feedback</b>, one of the two transistors can be modified subtly to make it behave like a voltage source. In that process, we realize our first approximation to an ideal analog buffer. We then see how manifestations of the same concept leads us to the synthesis of a whole bunch of two transistor circuits - <b>source followers</b>, common source amplifiers with <b>gm-load</b> and with <b>diode-connected load</b>, and <b>differential amplifiers </b>. The concepts used in synthesis of such elegant circuits are also extended to the analysis of much more complex circuits, for example, a <b>Voltage to Current (V2I) conversion</b> circuit. We introduce the concept of small signal parameters, <b>gm, gds</b>, showing the calculations for the gain and output impedance of our circuits, and quantifying how good each of our buffers really are. <br /><br />The narrative switches between concepts of Electronics and the story of Aman-Ra, an engineer from Medieval Egypt. Struggling with his relationships, his guiding light is Ang-Lao, who teaches him the secret to happy relationships.<br /><br />For some, this book will signal the end of the fear of Analog. For others, it will be the start of a love story. <br /><br /><h2>Concepts covered</h2><br />oI-V characteristics of Voltage & Current sources<br />oIdeal & non-ideal sources<br />oControlled sources<br />oActive and passive elements<br />oI-V characteristics of a MOSFET <br />oMOS transistor as a Voltage controlled current source<br />oDigital inverter as Analog amplifier<br />oOperating point<br />oCommon source (CS) amplifier<br />oEffect of loading on a CS amplifier<br />oFeedback<br />oHow can you make a MOSFET behave like a voltage source?<br />oSynthesis of a CS amplifier with diode-connected load<br />oAnalysis of a V2I circuit including an introduction to current mirror<br />oSynthesis of CS amplifier with gm-load<br />oSynthesis of source follower circuit<br />oSmall signal parameters: gm, gds<br />oSmall-signal gain and output impedance <br />oSynthesis of a differential amplifier<br />oSynthesis of an Operational amplifier <br />oRealizing the buffer using the Operational Amplifier

Erma’s Attic is a heartfelt and humorous tale, filled with historical facts, folksy phrases and amusing adages of the Southern United States. <br /><br />When Annie, a young doctoral student living in Charleston, West Virginia, takes the advice of an elderly friend and spends a few nights at a farmhouse up Black Hollow Road, she discovers a journal in the attic. <br /><br />The aged diary, she soon realizes, was written by her dear friend, Erma, who had recently passed on over to the sweet by and by. Her friend’s memories transport her on an adventure that defines and embraces involvement in the women’s suffrage movement, chatting with Mary “Mother” Jones, and standing vigil outside collapsed coal mines in the first half of the twentieth century.<br /><br />Tales from the past, and from the present when the journal is uncovered, are woven together to ultimately offer readers a compelling picture of life in the West Virginia Appalachians. <br /><br />Erma’s Attic (Angels of the Appalachians Book 2) renews the stories of Annie, Will, Erma, Ida, and of course, Hank. If you enjoyed Angels of the Appalachians, you are invited to explore this account of a friendship that spans across decades. If you haven’t read the first book, don’t fret, because you will still find yourself wishing to call on the fine folks of the Appalachian Mountains.<br /><br />It’s time to kick off your shoes, relax for a spell, and meet some of the angels who have made West Virginia so gloriously wild and wonderful.<br /><br />This delightful fictional novella is available on Kindle and in Paperback.<br />

<b>Between 1896 and 1899 around 100,000 people migrated to the Klondike region.<br /><br />But why were people so willing to risk everything they had to venture to the freezing and inhospitable conditions of north-western Canada?</b><br /><br />Men and women from cities across north America made treacherous journeys in the hope of finding a few ounces of one precious material: gold.<br /><br />On June 11, 1898, Jeremiah Lynch decided that it was time for him to try his hand at mining the land of the Klondike as he set out on a steamship from San Francisco bound for the northwest.<br /><br />Lynch’s remarkable account of three years spent in the Klondike provide a vivid depiction of what life was like during the famous gold rush.<br /><br />Through the course of his years in the Yukon he meets some remarkable characters, some who have struck a rich vein and are enjoying the joys of success and others who are struggling to make ends meet in the bitter conditions that they now live in.<br /><br />Lynch provides brilliant insight into what places such as Dawson City, that had sprung up in the short period of the gold rush, were like and how the city developed from a dirty, crowded settlement filled with rough, swashbuckling adventurers to a sophisticated cosmopolitan entrepot in a relatively short amount of time.<br /><br />Of particular interest are the details that Lynch provides on how the mines operated during this period and how prospectors would lay claim to a stake of land.<br /><br />"It is more impressive than fiction could be, the narrative having both light and shade." <em>Globe</em><br /><br />Jeremiah Lynch was a prominent businessman and politician from San Francisco who joined the Klondike Gold Rush two years after the first gold was discovered. He had previously written a book about his experiences of travelling in Egypt. His account <em> Three Years in the Klondike</em> was first published in 1904 and he passed away in 1917.<br />
