Ambitious and groundbreaking, Electric Shock tells the story of popular music, from the birth of recording in the 1890s to the digital age, from the first pop superstars of the twentieth century to the omnipresence of music in our lives, in hit singles, ringtones and on Spotify. Over that time, popular music has transformed the world in which we live. Its rhythms have influenced how we walk down the street, how we face ourselves in the mirror, and how we handle the outside world in our daily conversations and encounters. It has influenced our morals and social mores; it has transformed our attitudes towards race and gender, religion and politics. From the beginning of recording, when a musical performance could be preserved for the first time, to the digital age, when all of recorded music is only a mouse-click away; from the straitlaced ballads of the Victorian era and the ‘coon songs’ that shocked America in the early twentieth century to gangsta rap, death metal and the multiple strands of modern dance music: Peter Doggett takes us on a rollercoaster ride through the history of music. Within a narrative full of anecdotes and characters, Electric Shock mixes musical critique with wider social and cultural history and shows how revolutionary changes in technology have turned popular music into the lifeblood of the modern world.

Electrical Shock Safety Criteria documents the proceedings of the First International Symposium on Electrical Shock Safety Criteria, held in Toronto, Canada, 7-9 September 1983. The objective was to establish the state of the art in the field of electrical shock safety criteria as applied to electrical power utilities. The symposium brought together leading experts from electrical utilities, universities, and research laboratories from around the world, interested in problems associated with electrical shock and safety. The proceedings are organized in three sections, each consisting of the morning review papers and afternoon panel discussions. Section 1 presents an in-depth analysis of the physiology of electrical shocks including such topics as body-weight scaling, electrocution equation, physiological effects of electrical current, and factors affecting fibrillation threshold. Section 2 focuses on the analysis of body impedance under various conditions and the techniques for measuring current distribution in the body. Section 3 is devoted to discussions of safety criteria and related standards from the point of view of current practices in electrical utilities.

Contains the latest CPR guidelines! This program provides individuals who have a job-related duty to respond to emergencies with the knowledge and skills to recognize and provide care in respiratory and cardiac emergencies. These skills include performing two-rescuer CPR and techniques for special rescue situations, using resuscitation masks and bag-valve masks for ventilating victims, and minimizing the risk of disease transmission in emergency situations. This program also covers special situations professional rescuers are likely to encounter and the use of specialized equipment, most notably automated external defibrillators (AEDs).

The 16th Edition of the IEE Wiring Regulations has since 1992 been adopted as the British Standard (BS 7671) for electrical installation work. This invaluable and authoritative Commentary is now revised to incorporate the major change to BS 7671:2001 (and the subsequent Amendment No. 1 2002). It provides independent but clear interpretation of and guidance to the Regulations, enabling the design and installation professional to understand and apply them and overcome problems that arise.. Written by the IEE's Principal Engineer, this is the definitive and essential reference for the electrical / wiring installation professional.
