Beginning in the mid-2000s, celebrity gossip blogs exploded into the media market, challenging the traditional dominance of print tabloids as the primary space of celebrity dish and reconfiguring the audience's role in celebrity culture. This book is a critical and historical examination of the impact of the technological and textual shifts engendered by new media on the use of celebrity gossip as a form of everyday cultural production. Examining six popular American gossip blogs - Perez Hilton and Jezebel among them - at a peak moment of influence in the mid-2000s, this book explores how the technological affordances of new media enable the merging of the social practice of gossip with the practice of reading, creating an evolving participatory and community-based media culture that continues to transform celebrity culture in the digital age.
This book deals with actual design applications rather than the technology of VLSI Systems. This book is written basically for an advanced level course in Digital VLSI Systems Design using a Hardware Design Language (HDL), V- ilog. This book may be used for teaching undergraduates, graduates, and research scholars of Electrical, Electronics, Computer Science and Engineering, Embedded Systems, Measurements and Instrumentation, Applied Electronics, and interdis- plinary departments such as Biomedical, Mechanical Engineering, Information Technology, Physics, etc. This book also serves as a reference design manual for practicing engineers and researchers. Although this book is written for an - vanced level course, diligent freelance readers, and consultants, especially, those who do not have a first level exposure of digital logic design, may also start using this book after a short term course or self-study on digital logic design. In order to help these readers as well as regular students, the book starts with a good review of digital systems design, which lays a solid foundation to understand the rest of this book right up to involved Project Designs unfolded gradually. Contents of the Book The book presents new source material and theory as well as synthesis of recent work with complete Project Designs using industry standard CAD tools and FPGA boards, enabling the serious readers to design VLSI Systems on their own.
Digital signal processing is ubiquitous. It is an essential ingredient in many of today's electronic devices, ranging from medical equipment to weapon systems. It makes the difference between dumb and intelligent systems. This book is organized into five parts: (1) Introduction, which contains an account of Prof. Constantinides' contribution to the field and brief summaries of the remaining chapters of this festschrift, (2) Digital Filters and Transforms, which covers efficient digital filtering techniques for improving signal quality, (3) Signal Processing, which provides an insight into fundamental theories, (4) Communications, which deals with some important applications of signal processing techniques, and (5) Finale, which contains a discussion on the impact of digital signal processing on our society and the closing remarks on this festschrift.
