Sanitariums, Hospitals, and the Belladonna Cure Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

This book covers the history of for-profit institutions for the treatment of drug and alcohol habits which were established prior to the Repeal of Prohibition, as well as a number of miscellaneous entities such as mail-order opium cures. These include the famous Charles B. Towns Hospital and its notorious belladonna cure. Although many people know that Alcoholics Anonymous founder Bill Wilson was treated with the belladonna cure at the Charles B. Towns Hospital, few are aware that Towns was an insurance salesman with an eighth grade education and no medical training who lied about inventing an addiction cure that he got from someone else, that Towns had also been a stockbroker who was convicted of grand larceny after embezzling money for his clients, and that Towns only decided to make a buck in the addiction cure business after being banned from stock trading. Furthermore, in the 1910s, Towns proposed that state government should force drug addicts to take his cure against their wills, and that death camps should be built to exterminate anyone who relapsed after taking his cure. This book also tells the story of Harry Hubbell Kane, who founded the De Quincey Home for the cure of drug addicts in 1881. After the De Quincey Home failed in 1883, Kane invented and marketed a notorious patent medicine named Scotch Oats Essence. Scotch Oats Essence was comprised of one third alcohol and each ounce contained about a half a grain of morphine. It seems that Kane had decided that if he couldn't make money by curing drug addicts, he could make a lot of money by creating them. These are only two of hundreds of addiction treatment facilities which existed prior to the founding of AA: some good, some bad, and some indifferent. These stories and many more can be found in this book.

Preface Welcome to the world of " Metal Decoration Techniques: A Comprehensive Guide for Jewellery Designers."

Whether you are a budding jewellery designer, a seasoned professional looking to enhance your skills, or simply someone with a deep fascination for the captivating world of metals and adornment, this book is designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the materials and techniques that bring jewellery to life. Jewellery has been a symbol of culture, beauty, and personal expression for millennia. In every piece of jewellery lies a story, a connection to tradition, and an embodiment of artistry. At the heart of these exquisite creations are the metals themselves, with their unique properties, and the skilled craftsmanship that transforms them into works of wearable art. This textbook explores the key metals cherished throughout history for their beauty, durability, and versatility: gold, silver, and platinum. We will delve into the world of these precious metals, from their geological origins to their contemporary uses in jewellery design. Furthermore, the art of metal decoration is a central focus of this book. As you progress through its chapters, you will be introduced to a wealth of techniques and processes used by jewellery designers to shape, texture, and embellish metal surfaces. Whether you are interested in the timeless allure of hand engraving, the precision of stone setting, or the modern innovations in metalwork, you will find a wealth of knowledge to guide your journey. This book is structured to take you on a journey, from the fundamentals of metallurgy to the intricate details of jewellery design. Each chapter is carefully designed to provide you with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills. You will find illustrative examples that highlight the application of these techniques in the world of jewellery design. The world of jewellery is constantly evolving, with new trends emerging and innovative techniques redefining the art form. We hope that "Metals and Metal Decoration" will equip you with the foundational knowledge and creative inspiration needed to embark on your own journey of jewellery design, whether it be as a student, an artisan, or an enthusiast. As you embark on this educational voyage, we encourage you to approach it with curiosity, passion, and a commitment to craftsmanship. Jewellery design is not merely a technical skill; it is a form of artistic expression that allows you to capture the beauty of metals and translate your imagination into wearable masterpieces. We extend our gratitude to the many experts and artists who have contributed their wisdom and experiences to this book. We hope that their insights will inspire you as you explore the world of metals and metal decoration in jewellery design.

Mochlos IIC Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

Excavations carried out at the Late Minoan III settlement and cemetery at Mochlos in eastern Crete yielded domestic artifacts, human remains, grave goods, and ecofactual material from 31 tombs and 11 houses. These objects are cataloged, discussed, and illustrated. Radiocarbon dates for the site are also presented. The cemetery remains mirror the settlement remains, and the conclusions discuss how the two sites reflect each other. Rarely in Crete are a settlement and its cemetery both preserved, and it is extremely fortunate to be able to document both in a series of scientific excavation reports (Mochlos IIA-IIC).

Diamonds and Scoundrels Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

When Adrienne Rubin enters into the jewelry business in 1970s Los Angeles, she is a maverick in a world dominated by men. She soon meets a young hotshot salesman who doesn’t seem to struggle at all, and when he asks her to be his partner, she is excited to join him. She doesn’t know him well, but she does know his father, and she believes he is as trustworthy as the day is long . . . Diamonds and Scoundrels shows us how a woman in a man’s world, with tenacity and sheer determination, can earn respect and obtain a true sense of accomplishment. Following Rubin’s experiences in the jewelry industry through the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s—with the ups and downs, good guys and bad—this is a tale of personal growth, of how to overcome challenges with courage and resilience. It’s a story for the woman today who, in addition to a rich family life, seeks a self-realized, fulfilling path toward a life well lived.
