In recent years it has started to dawn on people who knew about the early offshore pioneering oil-field divers that a remarkable era, overshadowed by a group of remarkable men, had passed by. The golden age of commercial diving took place from the late 1950s up to about the early 1970s and was heavily influenced by pioneering oil-patch divers working offshore Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico. Joe Savoie, one of those remarkable men, invented the first modern commercial diving helmet. Joe's story is inextricably intertwined with the technical evolution of his diving helmet. In essence, his story is partly the story of his helmet and oil-field diving.

The New York Times bestselling author of The Party Is Over delivers a no-holds-barred exposé of who really wields power in Washington Every Four years, tempers are tested and marriages fray as Americans head to the polls to cast their votes. But does anyone really care what we think? Has our vaunted political system become one big, expensive, painfully scriped reality TV show? In this cringe-inducing expose of the sins and excesses of Beltwayland, a longtime Republican party insider argues that we have become an oligarchy in form if not in name. Hooked on war, genuflecting to big donors, in thrall to discredited economic theories and utterly bereft of a moral compass, America’s governing classes are selling their souls to entrenched interest while our bridges collapse, wages, stagnate, and our water is increasingly undrinkable. Drawing on sinsights gleaned over three decades on Capitol Hill, much of it on the Budget Committee, Lofgren paints a gripping portrait of the dismal swamp on the Potomac and the revolution it will take to reclaim our government and set us back on course. From the Hardcover edition.

A wonderfully detailed and beautifully finished armour model can easily be let down if accompanied by a poorly painted figure. The addition of scale figures helps provide depth, weight and realism to a model yet working with figures continues to be most armour modellers' worst nightmare. This book provides tips and techniques for building, converting and painting World War II German Army Panzer crew figures, in clear step-by-step instructions. Among the topics covered are how to paint different uniforms using enamels and oils; converting and scratch-building figures; painting heads and flesh tones; and weathering clothing.

As the world settled into peace following World War II, sisters Beverly and Carolyn 'Carrie" Leeds face a tragedy that forces them to stand on their own. The lives of the Leeds sisters begin in a lush valley in upstate New York. They know what it is to be loved and protected by caring parents-until that fateful day in 1947 when they get the call from the railroad. Their parents' train plunges into oblivion while traveling back to New York in the middle of a fierce blizzard after a trestle collapses. The Leeds sisters are close reflections of each other, with their rich shade of tawny hair, deep brown eyes, fair skin, and average height. Only one physical difference sets them apart-Beverly was born with an extensive skin blemish, a blood red birth mark that covers half of her face, running down her shoulder and neck. This dramatic difference sets her and her sister on distinctively different paths. Beverly continually suffers from the deep shame that sets her apart, sheltering herself in her reclusive lifestyle. Meanwhile, Carrie branches out into the world. Will the two sisters ever be close, or will their vastly different personalities carry them even farther apart?

Due to limited publicly available software and lack of documentation, those involved with production volume rendering often have to start from scratch creating the necessary elements to make their system work. Production Volume Rendering: Design and Implementation provides the first full account of volume rendering techniques used for feature animation and visual effects production. It covers the theoretical underpinnings as well as the implementation of a working renderer. The book offers two paths toward understanding production volume rendering. It describes: Modern production volume rendering techniques in a generic context, explaining how the techniques fit together and how the modules are used to achieve real-world goals Implementation of the techniques, showing how to translate abstract concepts into concrete, working code and how the ideas work together to create a complete system As an introduction to the field and an overview of current techniques and algorithms, this book is a valuable source of information for programmers, technical directors, artists, and anyone else interested in how production volume rendering works. Web Resource The scripts, data, and source code for the book’s renderer are freely available at https://github.com/pvrbook/pvr. Readers can see how the code is implemented and acquire a practical understanding of how various design considerations impact scalability, extensibility, generality, and performance.

With the technical advancement of digital media and the medium of communication in recent years, there is a widespread interest in digital entertainment. An emerging te- nical research area edutainment, or educational entertainment, has been accepted as education using digital entertainment. Edutainment has been recognized as an eff- tive way of learning using modern digital media tools, like computers, games, mobile phones, televisions, or other virtual reality applications, which emphasizes the use of entertainment with application to the education domain. The Edutainment conference series was established in 2006 and subsequently - ganized as a special event for researchers working in this new interest area of e-learning and digital entertainment. The main purpose of Edutainment conferences is to facilitate the discussion, presentation, and information exchange of the scientific and technological development in the new community. The Edutainment conference series becomes a valuable opportunity for researchers, engineers, and graduate s- dents to communicate at these international annual events. The conference series - cludes plenary invited talks, workshops, tutorials, paper presentation tracks, and panel discussions. The Edutainment conference series was initiated in Hangzhou, China in 2006. Following the success of the first event, the second (Edutainment 2007 in Hong Kong, China), third (Edutainment 2008 in Nanjing, China), and fourth editions (Edutainment 2009 in Banff, Canada) were organized. Edutainment 2010 was held during August 16–18, 2010 in Changchun, China. Two workshops were jointly org- ized together with Edutainment 2010.
