Speechless, Bruce Cockburn's first foray into completely instrumental territory, is proof in the pudding that you can teach an old dog new tricks. There are 15 tracks here, the vast majority of which are redos of tracks from Cockburn's catalog. But given their treatment – many of them done as solo guitar pieces – the dearth of new material doesn't even matter. In fact, one could venture to say that these feel like altogether new pieces. Cockburn is a master guitarist; he often interweaves jazz, blues, country, and folk styles into his cross-genre songs. Here he shines, pure and simple. "Train in the Rain" (anyone notice how many of his songs are about trains and travel?) touches on Leo Kottke and Peter Lang; "Water into Wine" utilizes flamenco stylings while crossing into Gypsy jazz chords à la Charlie Byrd. A new work, "Elegy," kisses the modalities of "Greensleeves" while creating itself as a piece that evokes both absence and memory. "Rouler Sa Bosse" from Salt, Sun and Time juxtaposes Cockburn's six-string against Jack Zaza's clarinet, and becomes a straight-up gently swinging jazz tune.

On this album by Norwegian 'heavy progressive' band Lucifer Was you can hear elements from Jethro Tull (flute) and The Moody Blues (Mellotron) but in general the focus is on harder-edged guitar work. Most of the ten compositions sound pleasant, no more or less. The titletrack delivers a wonderful part featuring the unsurpassed Mellotron (flute like Strawberry Fields Forever) and bluesy, Peter Green inspired guitar play. My highlight is the long Little Child (more than 11 minutes): alternating with halfway the two Mellotrons (played by Knut and Jon-Willy..!) and sensitive electric guitar. In general the guitar is pretty good on this album, the heavy riffs remind me of Black Sabbath but especially the guitar soli are great like fiery in Darkness and wah- wah in My Mind Said Stop. A fine album with some elaborate tracks.

An Introduction to Polymer Physics by David I. Bower

An Introduction to Polymer Physics by David I. Bower
Publisher: Cambridge University Press; 1 edition (June 15, 2002) | ISBN: 0521631378 | Pages: 420 | PDF | 9.3 MB

Assuming no previous knowledge of polymers, this book provides a general introduction to the physics of solid polymers. Covering a wide range of topics within the field of polymer physics, the book begins with a brief history of the development of synthetic polymers and an overview of the methods of polymerization and processing. In the following chapter, David Bower describes important experimental techniques used in the study of polymers. The main part of the book, however, is devoted to the structure and properties of solid polymers, including blends, copolymers and liquid crystal polymers.

A wonderful book about a wonderful man. In many ways, Marvin's McKinsey framed the hypotheses in our own search for excellence-for example, passion for values, belief in people as the prime resource, and willingness to let people experiment. As well as I thought I knew Marvin, however, this remarkable book, drawing on the collective memories of those who worked most closely with him, taught me a ton about how extraordinary the man really was and what made him that way. Many have called Drucker the man who invented management; I think history will conclude that both he and Marvin Bower share that pedestal.
Marvin Bower became a legend, not just within McKinsey & Company, but within professional services and the business world more broadly. In everything he did and said, he embodied the professional approach and the importance of values. This book sheds remarkable insight on a remarkable man and on the power of constancy of purpose.

A Queen's Bower in the exquisite Celtic style, filled with the ultimate expression of the master artisans' work: knotwork inlays and carvings, weavings, silks and rare objets d'art from trade with far off lands.

Deep in the forest is a place no one goes… it is said to be a magic place – a place of dreams and deep thoughts. Nature exists in harmony in this bower, which is sometimes called an Elven gazebo. Vines twist and cling to the high trellis, glowing in the light sifting through the fingers of the branches above.
