The Importance of Pictures in Kakuzo Okakura's Story The Book of Tea and Matsuo Basho's A Narrow Road to The Deep North - The act of looking at images that relate to a story can help the reader capture the true essence of what is happening. The images can also help to put in prospective what the characters are seeing, and more importantly, what the character is feeling. The author of a story cannot always express through words what something such as a landscape or single object looks like to the point that the reader has a definitive understanding of what is actually going on. Actual pictures or visual representations of the landscapes, or the rooms being described offer the reader far more than even the author could of imagined....   [tags: A Narrow Road to The Deep North, The Book of Tea ] 632 words

The implementation of RF circuits on the nanoscale digital CMOS process with no or minimal process enhancements is one of the key obstacles limiting the complete single-chip integration of cellular radio functionality with digital baseband for mass production. The key challenges for the RF integration in nanoscale CMOS include non-linearity of devices and circuits, device mismatches, process parameter spread, and the increasing potential for self-interference that could be induced by one function in the SoC onto another....   [tags: Research Analysis ]
