10 Mail

Jorge Antonio Renaud University of North Texas Press PDF

Chapter ten



nmates in TDCJ are allowed to receive mail from anyone in the world, without any restrictions on amounts of First Class personal mail. The key word here is “personal.” As long as there are no enclosures in mail to an inmate—no stamps, cash, pressed flowers, gold chains, etc.—the inmate will be given that letter. The actual, written content of the letter may be cause for denial, but I’ll get to that in a minute.

The liberty allowed Texas inmates with their personal mail is not extended to packages. It is easier to say what inmates can receive than to list what they cannot.

Inmates can receive two types of packages:

1) Books or magazines, which must come from the publisher or bookstore. This means that you must order them from the publisher and have the publisher mail them directly to the inmate; or you must buy them at the bookstore yourself, give the bookstore the inmate’s name, number, and address, and have the bookstore mail the books and magazines directly to the inmate. Do not try to mail books directly to the inmates. TDCJ mailrooms have a list of approved bookstores—if a package of books has a

22. Theatrical Productions

Jeffery Kite-Powell Indiana University Press ePub


Theatrical Productions

Or Aurora's Spicy Bed:
Seventeenth-Century Opera Production for Those
Not Normally Involved in Opera Production


From Aurora's spicy bed
Phæbus rears his glorious head…

—Nahum Tate, Dido and Æneas, prologue

To many well-informed people in the English-speaking world, the phrase “seventeenth-century opera” means Dido and Æneas, the much-produced opera by Henry Purcell.1 We do not realize that the “spicy bed” harbors literally hundreds of little-known masterworks. Dido has become the “typical” Baroque opera for many people, when in fact no opera could be less so! A formally peculiar work that exists in near isolation as one of very few pre-nineteenth-century examples of all-sung theater in England, Dido and Æneas is typical only in that it has shared the fate of many of its more obscure continental cousins: shorn of its prologue and subjected to capricious editorial practice, it is Dido's fate in our own time that makes it a representative example of a misunderstood genre.

B. Batteries

Kate Hartman Maker Media, Inc ePub

Bodies are dynamic, mobile vessels in which we travel through the world. It is because of our transient nature that wearables require a portable power source. This power source most commonly takes the form of batteries. This section introduces factors to consider when incorporating a batteries into wearables.

Here are a few things you need to know about batteries:

Round cell batteries are the type that you are probably most familiar with. They have a cylindrical shape and usually provide 1.5V, depending on their chemistry. This category includes AAA, AA, C, and D batteries. Each type is a different size. Usually the larger the battery is, the greater its capacity. AAA and AA can be used for wearables but tend to be a bit bulky. C and D batteries are too heavy for most wearable applications.

Nonround batteries come in a variety of shapes. 9V batteries are the type from this category that are most likely to be used for wearables.

Coin cell batteries are disc-shaped. 2032s (20mm) and 2450s (24.5mm) are commonly available sizes. These batteries are small and thin—excellent for low-current wearable applications.
