Fresh from a stint undercover in Pelican Bay´s super-max prison in Northern California, Ryan Lock, and his business partner, former US Marine Ty Johnson, are in Los Angeles. They are tasked with protecting a young Hollywood starlet from an abusive movie star boyfriend, who refuses to accept that their relationship is over. As Lock knows only too well, and as Ty is about to learn, keeping someone safe from harm can be harder than it looks, and damage can come in unexpected forms... 1. Language: English.

The bark canoes of the North American Indians, particularly those of birch bark, were among the most highly developed of manually propelled primitive watercraft. Built with Stone Age tools from materials available in the areas of their use, their design, size, and appearance were varied so as to create boats suitable to the many and different requirements of their users. The great skill exhibited in their design and construction shows that a long period of development must have taken place before they became known to white men. The Indian bark canoes were most efficient watercraft for use in forest travel; they were capable of being propelled easily with a single-bladed paddle. This allowed the paddler, unlike the oarsman, to face the direction of travel, a necessity in obstructed or shoal waters and in fast-moving streams. The canoes, being light, could be carried overland for long distances, even where trails were rough or nonexistent. Yet they could carry heavy loads in shallow water and could be repaired in the forest without special tools. Bark canoes were designed for various conditions: some for use in rapid streams, some for quiet waters, some for the open waters of lakes, some for use along the coast. Most were intended for portage in overland transportation as well. They were built in a variety of sizes, from small one-man hunting and fishing canoes to canoes large enough to carry a ton of cargo and a crew, or a war-party, or one or more families moving to new habitations. Some canoes were designed so that they could be used, turned bottom up, for shelter ashore...

This volume provides a comprehensive perspective on geomorphic approaches to management of lowland alluvial rivers in North America and Europe. Many lowland rivers have been heavily managed for flood control and navigation for decades or centuries, resulting in engineered channels and embanked floodplains with substantially altered sediment loads and geomorphic processes. Over the past decade, floodplain management of many lowland rivers has taken on new importance because of concerns about the potential for global environmental change to alter floodplain processes, necessitating revised management strategies that minimize flood risk while enhancing environmental attributes of floodplains influenced by local embankments and upstream dams. Recognition of the failure of old perspectives on river management and the need to enhance environmental sustainability has stimulated a new approach to river management. The manner that river restoration and integrated management are implemented, however, requires a case study approach that takes into account the impact of historic human impacts to the system, especially engineering. The river basins examined in this volume provide a representative coverage of the drainage of North America and Europe, taking into account a range of climatic and physiographic provinces. They include the 1) Sacramento (California, USA), 2) San Joaquin (California), 3) Missouri (Missouri, USA), 4) Red (Manitoba, Canada and Minnesota, USA), 5) Mississippi (Louisiana, USA), 6) Kissimmee (Florida, USA), 7) Ebro (Spain), 8) Rhone (France), 9) Rhine (Netherlands), 10) Danube (Romania), and 11) Volga (Russian Federation) Rivers. The case studies covered in these chapters span a range of fluvial modes of adjustment, including sediment, channel, hydrologic regime, floodplains, as well as ecosystem and environmental associations. Paul Hudson is Associate Professor of Physical Geography at Leiden University, The Netherlands. After completing a PhD in fluvial geomorphology at Louisiana State University, Hudson was Assistant and then Associate Professor at the University of Texas at Austin for fourteen years, until his move to The Netherlands. His current projects examine river management and geomorphology along rivers in Northern Europe, Texas, and the Lower Mississippi River in Louisiana. Hans Middelkoop is full professor of Physical Geography at Utrecht University. After completing his PhD on embanked floodplains at Utrecht University, Middelkoop was employed at the Netherlands national Institute for Inland Water Management and Wastewater Treatment (RWS-RIZA). Since 1999 Middelkoop has been appointed at Utrecht University. His research group examines the morphodynamics of rivers, floodplains and deltas across a range of scales, and how these change in response to internal fluvial dynamics, climate, land use changes and human impact. Middelkoop has been active in numerous research projects related to river restoration.
A radio road trip across America features some of the nuttiest callers ever to phone the show. Each week millions of radio listeners tune in to National Public Radio´s Car Talk. A high point of every show is the call-in segment, when listeners phone in for advice and regale hosts Click and Clack with tales of their own automotive misadventures. Like Dave from Bemidji, Minnesota, who drives his Chevy Cavalier home from Alaska when it already has 350,000 miles on the odometer. And Dinesh, who strolls across Death Valley. Rather than worry about buzzards, he´s concerned about how his car will hold up in the heat. Christy wants to know if she fried her dad´s Citation. Adrienne frets that a load of rocks might crush her Saab. Single guy John wonders if he should tidy up his car for a first date or reveal its trashy self. And when Ann´s husband travels from Georgia to Florida to get his vasectomy reversed, Ann drives like a banshee to bring him back home. Ever since, their Caravan makes strange grinding noises. It seems that lunatics aren´t confined to Car Talk Plaza. They´re everywhere, and they´re dialing the phone. Four hilarious radio shows celebrate the land of the free, home of the wacko. 1.

Masters Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Biology - Micro- and Molecular Biology, grade: 67.13, Kenyatta University (Pure and applied sciences), course: MSc. Microbiology, language: English, abstract: Salmonellosis is one of the most common and widely distributed group of enteric diseases in the world today. It causes high mortality and morbidity especially in developing countries. This study was aimed at identifying the factors that predispose people to salmonellosis. In addition the study was meant to isolate Salmonella, and determine its antimicrobial sensitivity and test the effectiveness of water treatment for the control of salmonellosis. To identify the predisposing factors of salmonellosis, a questionnaire was used. For the isolation of Salmonella, a total of 630 samples were collected from raw cows milk, sheep and cattle intestinal wastes, raw fruit and vegetable salads, waste water, water sources and water that had been treated by the study population through boiling, chlorination and filtration. Samples were also collected from water that was treated through solar disinfection. The samples were pre-enriched using peptone water then selectively enriched using Selenite F broth and incubated at 37 oC for 24 hrs and subcultured in xylose lysine desoxycholate (XLD) agar and Salmonella- Shigella agar in five replicates. Typical Salmonella colonies were confirmed by biochemical test using API E-20 and the species serotyped. The isolated serovars were tested against seven antibiotics; cephalexin, nalidixic acid, chloramphenicol, ciprofloxacin, gentamicin, amoxycillin and sulfa-trimethoprim. The results were analyzed by the use of chi-square test, correlation test and Anova using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS version 11.50) software. Level of education, occupation, method of food storage, cleaning of kitchen utensils, hand washing, human waste disposal, animal wastes, presence or absence of sewers, waste water, tap water, river water and water treatment were significantly associated with salmonellosis while sex, well water and method of water treatment were not. There was no significant difference between the microbial load of Salmonella isolates from milk, sheep and cattle intestinal wastes, waste water, fruits and vegetable salads in Maili 5, Bahati and Kabatini. However, River Kanduras water mean Salmonella isolates varied significantly from upstream to downstream. Of the 105 Salmonella isolates Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium were (45.7 %), S. enterica serovar Typhi (22.9 %), S. enterica serovar Enteritidis (21.9 %) and S. enterica serovar Dublin (9.5 %). All the serovars were susceptible to gentamicin. Paul Njenga Waithaka was born in Elburgon in Nakuru County in Kenya.
