Book Road Work

Download or read book Road Work written by Mark Bowden and published by Grove/Atlantic, Inc.. This book was released on 2007-12-01 with total page 644 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “Painstakingly reported stories about losers, oddballs and con men” from the #1 New York Times–bestselling journalist and author of Black Hawk Down (The New York Times Book Review). This riveting anthology collects the most diverse and far-reaching of Mark Bowden’s award-winning nonfiction—“with fascinating features on Norman Mailer, the war against terror, and even a Philadelphia Zoo gorilla, Bowden’s range is broad” (Entertainment Weekly). Whether traveling to Rhode Island where one of the largest cocaine rings in history is uncovered, or to the Luangwa Valley in Zambia where anti-poachers fight to save the black rhino, Bowden takes us down rough roads previously off-limits: the top-secret world of Guantanamo Bay; Saddam Hussein’s post 9/11 days on the run; a pimp’s inside track on police corruption in Philadelphia; and Al Sharpton’s campaign trail. Bowden also invites readers along to meet a small-town high school football team, farmers who make bras for cows, the Rocky Balboa statue in Philadelphia, and to see Disney World with a wide-eyed group of terminally ill children. In Road Work, Mark Bowden “fashion[s] prose that reads like good fiction, with the bonus that his stories are true” (The New York Times Book Review). “Astute character reading and solid research combine with ingenious and stylish prose: a superior portfolio from a journalist who stays at the top of his game.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review “Bowden is unlike any other journalist . . . Superb reporting, a fine mind conceiving the story line, and a compelling writing style lead to something approaching immortality.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch

  • Author : Thomas R. Wright
  • Publisher : Hal Leonard Corporation
  • Release : 2007
  • ISBN : 9781423413004
  • Pages : 348 pages

Download or read book Roadwork written by Thomas R. Wright and published by Hal Leonard Corporation. This book was released on 2007 with total page 348 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As a friend and cohort of some of rock music's biggest legends - the Who, Rod Stewart, the Rolling Stones, the Eagles, Joe Walsh, and countless others - photographer Tom Wright was given unparalleled access to almost every aspect of the musicians' lives, on- and offstage. Roadwork is a compilation of over 200 of Wright's groundbreaking photographs and the true stories behind the captivating pictures that have earned him praise as "America's most important documenter of the 1960s and 1970s rock 'n' roll scene". Gritty and realistic, poignant and beautiful, Wright's photos powerfully deconstruct the glamour of life on the road, capturing the true essence of rock 'n' roll: the musicians, the roadies, the fans, and the beautiful women who voraciously followed these rock bands. Over the years, Wright has allowed almost no commercial access to his work; his photographs have been available to only the musicians he's worked with and a handful of record company executives ... until now. Roadwork offers a rare glimpse into the extraordinary life and stunning art of Tom Wright, the man Joe Walsh dubbed "the Jack Kerouac of rock 'n' roll." Includes 180 black and white photos (60 of those are full page) and an eight page color section.

Book Highway Construction and Inspection Fieldbook

Download or read book Highway Construction and Inspection Fieldbook written by Alberto Munguia Mireles and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2014-11-03 with total page 184 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Maintaining complete, comprehensive, detailing records of every process or deliverable items is fundamentally essential to the efficient control of the work, to the achievement of all Company and Project objectives and to the management of the potential risks and opportunities that could be encountered during the prosecution of the work. Any company is taking a great risk if the Inspector, Supervisor or Leadsmen is unable to recognize that one of the greatest problems about the daily field report is that the information in them will not be needed if there is not a problem. However, when and if a problem arises the information logged on the Daily Field Report will be of great importance when dealing with the problem. This field book is a tested methodology that if used well and daily will provide consistent information to the user, but also to upper management. This field book aggregates procedures used by roadwork experts and it has been designed considering the fact that personnel on site is not always well versed on writing documents. This is a step by step collection of information that will document the minimum data required to create a useful construction daily report.

Book Road Work

    Book Details:
  • Author : Kenneth A. Small
  • Publisher : Brookings Institution Press
  • Release : 2012-01-01
  • ISBN : 9780815721130
  • Pages : 160 pages

Download or read book Road Work written by Kenneth A. Small and published by Brookings Institution Press. This book was released on 2012-01-01 with total page 160 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: America's interstate highway system is deteriorating, and traffic congestion in most urban centers is worsening. Because of the many strong and conflicting interests, policy discussions about the road system are also in gridlock. The only consensus that seems to have emerged is that public spending must be increased. Improving our highway system and its financing will not be easy. Road Work proposes a comprehensive highway pricing and investment policy to meet the goals of efficiency, equity, and financial stability. In this study, Kenneth A. Small, Clifford Winston, and Carol A. Evans base their policy on two economic principles: efficient pricing to regulate demand for highway services and efficient investment to minimize the total public and private costs of providing them. Policy recommendations include a set of pavement-wear taxes for heavy trucks, a set of congestion taxes for all vehicles, and a program of optimal investments in road durability. Their proposals should be especially attractive to policymakers because they can be implemented with current technology, offer little threat to the major interest group, and in the long run will reduce the strain on state and local governments' highway budgets.
