The book collects original and innovative research studies of the experienced and actively working scientists in the field of wave propagation which produced new methods in this area of research and obtained new and important results. Every chapter of this book is the result of the authors achieved in the particular field of research. The themes of the studies vary from investigation on modern applications such as metamaterials, photonic crystals and nanofocusing of light to the traditional engineering applications of electrodynamics such as antennas, waveguides and radar investigations....
In an era of information overload, it is not too radical to expect some social consciousness from the cinema
medium. All this while, there has been discussion about media‟s responsibility to the society. So why cinema
should be engaged only with creating leisure for its audience and not make them think critically? Popular
rhetoric and culture need to be challenged and cinema can do it effectively if it exhibits some sensitivity to
gender issues. This is because Hindi films now enjoy a huge international market in many South Asian and
When asked about purchase of counterfeit goods over the last twelve months, the
most commonly purchased were music (16.2 per cent of the entire sample), films
(16.0 per cent of the entire sample), and fashion items (15.5 per cent of the entire
sample). This is consistent with the products identified as providing the most lucrative
markets for counterfeiters as outlined in the introduction. For the entire sample,
downloading of pirated files was less common with 14 per cent having downloaded
illegal music tracks, 6 per cent whole albums and 5 per cent films or TV programmes. ...
Computerized Optical Processes
For almost 30 years, the silver halide emulsion has been ﬁrst choice as the recording medium for holography, speckle interferometry, speckle photography, moir´ and optical e ﬁltering. Materials such as photoresist, photopolymers and thermoplastic ﬁlm have also been in use. There are two main reasons for this success. In processes where diffraction is involved (as in holographic reconstruction), a transparency is needed. The other advantage of ﬁlm is its superior resolution.
Nevertheless, if Marion limits the notion to a dazzling sight, Bonfand pushes the
thought further: in cinema, the saturated phenomenon becomes something which is
impossible to film, something which literally overflows the frame (the screen) of its
representation and actualization within the medium. Immensity is fully a saturated
Under the U.S. Constitution, the censors had every right to wield their scissors at whatever
offended their eyes. In 1915, in Mutual Film Corporation v. Industrial Commission of Ohio,
the Supreme Court ruled that the movies were not a revolutionary new communications
medium but “a business, pure and simple, originated and conducted for profit, like other
spectacles, not to be regarded … as part of the press of the country, or as organs of public
There too, the accounts of feminist film culture
in the mid-to-late 70s tended to emphasize a dichotomy between two
concerns of the women's movement and two

seemed to be at odds with each other: one called for immediate
political activism, consciousness-

"positive images" of woman;
the other insisted on rigorous, formal work on the medium - or bet-...
Polyethylene-starch blend polymer has already found to be a potential candidate to replace non-degradable plastic in packaging . However, the degradation of that polymer in natural ambience (soil burial test) needs to be further evaluated. The purpose of this study is to investigate the degradability of PE-starch blend polymer in soil and in liquid medium. The soil is added starch degrading bacteria isolated from natural soil.
