Превью композиций на Amazon.com.

«Звучание альбома очень современно, но корнями он уходит во множество радикальных художественных течений конца 19 — начала 20 века: гротескность кабаре Веймарской эры, бурлеск парижского образца и американское варьете, цветистое остроумие дендизма,провокационную образность сюрреализма, и, прежде всего, в по-детски наивный абсурд дадаизма».

Мэрилин Мэнсон, «Revolver», 2003 (перевод PaintPit.ru)

Мэнсон проводит параллель между ролью своей музыки в современной Америке, и положением европейских художников-авангардистов, чье искусство было подвержено преследованию со стороны нацистской партии и в осмеяние было названо «дегенеративным».

Тим Скольд на этом альбоме привнес в звучание Marilyn Manson обилие элементов и приемов, заимствованых из индастриала.

And we aim to depress
This is the Golden Age of Grotesque»

Блэк-фейс грим

В оформлении буклета альбома была использована фотография Мэнсона в «блэкфейс» гриме. Образ отсылает ко временам американского водевиля 19 века — белые актеры в роли афро-американцев покрывали свое лицо гримом. Эта тематика подчеркивает концептуальную линию фашизма в отношнении «дегенеративного» искусства. Снимок был сделан одним из постоянных фотографов артиста — Перу (Perou).

The Top Digital Blood Pressure Machines

Digital technology makes it easy to monitor your blood pressure at home. Whether the digital display reads low, high or normal (changed from edit: shorter, and a digital display has numbers), you need to know the reading is correct. Then you can confidently call your doctor with an abnormal result, and perhaps save a trip to the doctor. Buying a reliable (I use the word reliable here because the validations from the BHS are based on reliability and accuracy; «high quality» is a very nebulous term. Confidence, a word used below, is also related to reliability.) digital blood pressure monitor provides you an added advantage: According to the Mayo Clinic, (see ref 2) blood pressure temporarily increases with stress, so confidence in your monitor can decrease stress and lower your daily blood pressure readings. 2+2=4 needs no reference, right? But what about «The Pythagorean Theorem is ‘a squared + b squared = c squared’ .» That’s common knowledge to anyone who took trig in high school.

The guidelines suggest checking each fact against two sources, am I a source as an RN? Also, are we assuming we are talking to fourth graders, like some internet sites recommend? If so, then I can understand the need to reference almost every fact for the reader. I’d appreciate a little help here it will help us both avoid future frustration :) )

The Best Types of Digital Blood Pressure Machines

The wrist type of blood pressure machine is not reliable. Wrist and finger blood pressure monitors do not provide results as reliable as machines with upper arm blood pressure cuffs, according to the AHA. (see reference 2) All of our top digital blood pressure monitors measure from the upper arm.

Our top blood pressure monitors are based on several criteria from the experts. One set of criteria comes from the European Society of Hypertension (EHS) (see reference 3) They recommend monitors with a digital monitor, and memory functions with the ability to average the stored blood pressure readings.

The next criterion is a monitor’s accuracy and reliability. Three groups have protocols that measure these. They are: The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI), the British Hypertension Society (BHS), and the EHS. The British Hypertension Society gives the highest reliability rating of A/A rating and lower ratings of A/B or B/B. One organization compiles and analyzes the research on blood pressure monitors: dable Educational Trust. (see reference 4) Their site makes recommendations based on the blood pressure monitor validations and quality of the research.

The Omron HEM 780 Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor is our first pick. There are several reasons. First, this cuff has the first FDA approval for a device that can detect early morning hypertension, which can be a warning for stroke. The result: The cuff does not squeeze the arm too tightly.

Also, the HEM 780 cuff size fits a wide range of arm sizes, including arms with a 9 to 17 inch circumference. The cuff senses irregular heartbeats, and will take three consecutive readings and average them, according the the AHA guidelines. The memory stores data for you and someone else, in case you have a friend or loved one who will want to share your monitor. And it will store 84 sets of measurements for each user, with up to eight weeks of averages. It has a movement indicator, and indicates hypertension and low battery. (see reference 5)

This monitor has a 2010 price of around $63 at Amazon. For an extra $14, you get monitoring software and a connection to your computer with the upgrade model HEM 790 IT.

Lifesource UA 767 Plus

The Lifesource UA 767P earned the British Hypertension rating of A/A. UA 767P saves the last 90 readings for recall that include the time and date of measurement. The monitor will average all of the blood pressures in its memory. Cuffs are latex free and available in three sizes. The monitor has a pressure rating indicator that helps you understand if your blood pressure is in the normal range. For around $100, you can get the same unit that will announce your blood pressure readings, model UA 767T.Articles Connexes:
