Label: Ba Da Bing! US

After a string of Natural Snow Buildings reissues, each more elaborate then the last, Ba Da Bing presents their first ever release of new material from the band. For a group known for its use of horror imagery and lyricism, perhaps the most shocking thing of all is that this album clocks in at just under 45 minutes. If there ever was a release that served as the proper entry point for Natural Snow Buildings, Terror’s Horns is it.

In the decade since its composition, Liu Yuan's The Echoes of Hakka's Earth Buildings has been performed many times throughout China and the Pacific Rim. Written in a broadly cinematic style while incorporating the melodies and rhythms of Liu's own ethnic Hakka heritage produced a sure-fire audience pleaser, celebrating both the native culture of one of China's ethnic minorities and embracing a broadly nationalist spirit.

Design of Blast Resistant Buildings in Petrochemical Facilities

Design of Blast Resistant Buildings in Petrochemical Facilities
American Society of Civil Engineers | English | ISBN 0784402655 | 272 pages | PDF | 10.76 MB | 1997

The focus of this report is on structural aspects of designing or evaluating buildings for blast resistance. Generally this involves quantifying the blast overpressures that could result from accidental explosions, establishing the design blast loads from these overpressures, setting the structural performance requirements, and designing the building structure to withstand these loads within the required performance limits. Blast resistant design, or the structural strengthening of buildings, is one of the measures an owner may employ to minimize the risk to people and facilities from the hazards of accidental explosions in a plant. Other mitigative or preventive measures, including siting (adequate spacing from potential explosion hazards) and hazard reduction (inventory and process controls, occupancy limitations, etc.), arc not covered in this report.

This book is aimed at all engineers and architects involved in the design of building structures, and should enable them to have a better understanding of their own and their client's responsibilities in providing buildings which, in the event of an explosion, minimize damage to people and property.

The title of Talking Heads' second album, More Songs About Buildings and Food, slyly addressed the sophomore record syndrome, in which songs not used on a first LP are mixed with hastily written new material. If the band's sound seems more conventional, the reason simply may be that one had encountered the odd song structures, staccato rhythms, strained vocals, and impressionistic lyrics once before. Another was that new co-producer Brian Eno brought a musical unity that tied the album together, especially in terms of the rhythm section, the sequencing, the pacing, and the mixing. Where Talking Heads had largely been about David Byrne's voice and words, Eno moved the emphasis to the bass-and-drums team of Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz; all the songs were danceable, and there were only short breaks between them. Through the first nine tracks, More Songs was the successor to 77, which would not have earned it landmark status or made it the commercial breakthrough it became. It was the last two songs that pushed the album over those hurdles. First there was an inspired cover of Al Green's "Take Me to the River"; released as a single, it made the Top 40 and pushed the album to gold-record status. Second was the album closer, "The Big Country," Byrne's country-tinged reflection on flying over middle America; it crystallized his artist-vs.-ordinary people perspective in unusually direct and dismissive terms, turning the old Chuck Berry patriotic travelogue theme of rock & roll on its head and employing a great hook in the process.
