The Mine Maintenance Management Reader is an indispensable handbook for maintenance managers and supervisors, and mine and plant managers in heavy industry. Virtually every aspect of this essential function is addressed, from organizing maintenance around a plant-level production strategy, to how maintenance professionals can provide a road map for creating a more efficient organization. These critical big-picture issues are brought to life through engaging vignettes of maintenance men and women dealing with real-life, day-to-day problems and concerns. You'll learn how Charlie, a plant manager, gets into trouble when he adopts a team approach to maintenance without doing his homework. You'll see how Vivian, a haulage truck driver, sets a new standard for the quality of preventive maintenance inspections. And you'll read how Jerry, a general manager, establishes responsibilities for maintenance support that increase the production capacity and profitability of his mining operation. Author Paul D. Tomlingson draws on his 35 years of maintenance management consulting experience to craft these compelling, yet highly instructional, stories. Each reveals a powerful lesson, providing you with ideas and techniques to help solve maintenance problems you may be grappling with today.

Heart of Darkness

and Selections from The Congo Diary
Author: Joseph Conrad
Publisher: Modern Library
ISBN: 0679641246
Category: Fiction
Page: 176
View: 1965
'Heart of Darkness,' which appeared at the very beginning of our century, 'was a Cassandra cry announcing the end of Victorian Europe, on the verge of transforming itself into the Europe of violence,' wrote the critic Czeslaw Milosz. Originally published in 1902, Heart of Darkness remains one of this century's most enduring--and harrowing--works of fiction. Written several years after Conrad's grueling sojourn in the Belgian Congo, the novel tells the story of Marlow, a seaman who undertakes his own journey into the African jungle to find the tormented white trader Kurtz. Rich in irony and spellbinding prose, Heart of Darkness is a complex meditation on colonialism, evil, and the thin line between civilization and barbarity. This edition contains selections from Conrad's Congo Diary of 1890--the first notes, in effect, for the novel which was composed at the end of that decade. Virginia Woolf wrote of Conrad, 'His books are full of moments of vision. They light up a whole character in a flash. . . . He could not write badly, one feels, to save his life.'

"Applying recent thinking on gender and the environment to original research in science and technology, this unique book explores postcolonial relationships with 'the wild' using the US and Russia as examples. The authors analyse contemporary categorizations of 'human self' versus 'wild other' through three twentieth century icons that best illustrate ambivalent ideas about self and other: spaceships, horoscopes and dolphins." "Theoretically innovative, this book represents an alternative approach to ecofeminist themes linking them up with studies of new technocultures and cyborgs. It forms an excellent exemplar of feminist cultural studies."--BOOK JACKET.

View: 9246
Creativity and rationale comprise an essential tension in design. They are two sides of the coin; contrary, complementary, but perhaps also interdependent. Designs always serve purposes. They always have an internal logic. They can be queried, explained, and evaluated. These characteristics are what design rationale is about. But at the same time designs always provoke experiences and insights. They open up possibilities, raise questions, and engage human sense making. Design is always about creativity. Creativity and Rationale: Enhancing Human Experience by Design comprises 19 complementary chapters by leading experts in the areas of human-computer interaction design, sociotechnical systems design, requirements engineering, information systems, and artificial intelligence. Researchers, research students and practitioners in human-computer interaction and software design will find this state of the art volume invaluable.

As power systems develop to incorporate renewable energy sources, the delivery systems may be disrupted by the changes involved. The grid’s technology and management must be developed to form Smart Grids between consumers, suppliers and producers. Conducted Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) in Smart Grids considers the specific side effects related to electromagnetic interference (EMI) generated by the application of these Smart Grids. Conducted Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) in Smart Grids presents specific EMI conducted phenomena as well as effective methods to filter and handle them once identified. After introduction to Smart Grids, the following sections cover dedicated methods for EMI reduction and potential avenues for future development including chapters dedicated to: •potential system services, •descriptions of the EMI spectra shaping methods, •methods of interference voltage compensation, and theoretical analysis of experimental results. By focusing on these key aspects, Conducted Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) in Smart Grids provides a concise and comprehensive coverage of an extensive subject matter. It constitutes a key resource for any industry practitioners, researchers or system designers with interest in Smart Grids, particularly their electromagnetic compatibility in the conducted EMI frequency range.
