Nonin Go2 Fingertip Pulse Oximeter - Orange by Nonin

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful item, 2 Nov 2010
This device is very accurate in measuring heartrate and oxygen levels. I have compared the readings to those of a hospital oximeter and they are very similar. The device is well made and very simple to operate. The backlight is very useful for night-time readings.

Highly recommended, and a very reasonable price.
Heartbeat Kodo 25th Anniversary ~ Kodo

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb audio feast, 7 Feb 2008
This music is full of energy and life, Kodo are exploring the limitless possibilities of the traditional Japanese drum, the taiko. Kodo are forging new directions for a vibrant living art-form.

In Japanese the word "Kodo" conveys two meanings: Firstly, "heartbeat" the primal source of all rhythm. The sound of the great taiko is said to resemble a mother's heartbeat as felt in the womb.

My favourite tracks are Zoku, Ibuki, Shake, Miyake, and Kyosui. All the tracks are good.

Of course Kodo are at their best live, I saw them live yesterday in Manchester and they were totally amazing. Buy this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hiroshige is genius, 21 Jan 2008
Hiroshige is by far and away the best Japanese artist. His prints have such artistry and imagination. Hiroshige is justifibly famous for his One Hundred Famous Views of Edo, but his Famous Views of the 60 Odd Provinces are very good too. This book is a useful addition to Japanese art, and a must have for fans of Hiroshige. Well worth buying.
