State of New-Hampshire in House of Representatives, July 3, 1863 ordered: That the majority and minority Reports of the Committee on National Resolutions lie upon the table
[Concord, New Hampshire?] : [publisher not identified], [1863?]
Joint resolutions issued from the Select Committee on National Affairs of the State of New Hampshire General Court during their June 1863 session. The majority report resolves New Hampshire's support for the Federal Government and the Union, acknowledges the constitutionality of the Government's current course of action in the American Civil War, and praises New Hampshire's soldiers. The minority report resolves support for the Constitution of the United States and presents several arguments against decisions made by the Executive Office of the President of the United States, including the emancipation of slaves. The minority report also presents opposition to compensation from the Treasury of the United States "to a system of emancipation," praises New Hampshire's soldiers, calls for consideration of amendments to the Constitution, and protests the arrest, imprisonment, trial, and banishment of Clement L. Vallandigham.

An old story : my love affair with antiques
Zachowski, Matt author
2018
"While the internet has brought transparency to numerous markets that historically operated in the shadows, the market for American antiques remains opaque to all but professional dealers and major collectors. Subtle differences between similar objects, carefully disguised repairs and restorations, material that has been through auction without selling -- all of these things can have a dramatic effect on the value of an object but are imperceptible to the average auction-goer or retail buyer. The lack of transparency in these and other areas, including the inner workings of the auctions themselves, results in many buyers overpaying for antiques that are not entirely what they purport to be. My thesis, written in the form of a narrative, addresses the above conundrum by answering the question: what does a beginning collector need to know before purchasing antiques? It traces my own learning curve over 25 years as a "middle market" collector of American antiques. Through conversations with leading dealers and auction house specialists as well as meticulous research, I gradually pierce the veil that masks the secrets of the leading auction houses and the tightly-knit dealer community. Presented as a creative writing exercise, I shed light on a mysterious domain by recounting my personal collecting experiences and demonstrating that all the information you need to be successful is there if you know where to look.

Modeling, optimization, and comparison of hybrid resonant switched capacitor DC-DC converters
Kiani, Muhammad Hassan, author
"Recent decades have seen rapid growth in portable-embedded computing and communications, which in turn has accelerated the need for high performance power management and delivery. This translates to a demand for high power density, low cost, small size, and high efficiency DC-DC converters. Traditionally, magnetics-based designs (like buck or boost) have dominated the DC-DC conversion realm. However, these architectures have a tradeoff between size of passives and efficiency. Hybrid-resonant switched capacitor (ReSC) DC-DC converters have shown great potential for applications that require both high density and efficiency. These approaches are known to benefit from the favorable active-device-utilization properties of switched capacitor (SC) converters and the relatively high energy density of capacitors compared to inductors, while mitigating the charge-sharing losses inherent in SC designs. Compared to buck or boost DC-DC converters the hybrid approach promises to reduce the size of magnetic components by reducing the volt-second or flux linkage requirements. While hybrid-resonant SC converters have shown a lot of promise, it has thus far been difficult to assess which topologies are most favorable given constraints on size (area or volume), energy storage, or power loss. This work presents a comprehensive study to model the losses in hybrid-resonant switched capacitor (ReSC) DC-DC converters. Both the losses in the active semiconductor devices and magnetic components are considered. The formulation presented in this work allows comparison between different converter architectures across conversion ratios given some common constraints. Optimization techniques are presented to minimize the losses in the individual components and the overall converter. Finally, given the drive for miniaturization of passive components, a technique is developed that leads to optimal allocation of size between flying capacitors and inductor(s) with a constraint on total size of passives.
