Minutes & Seconds: The Scientists, Patrick Aievoli Sep 2018

Minutes & Seconds: The Scientists, Patrick Aievoli

Zea E-Books

Minutes & Seconds, is a captivating intelligible read for those who strive to understand where the “what if” moment has gone. Succeeding his other captivating books, Aievoli’s deep introspective lens dials his readers in to awaken the proverbial sleeping giant inside of our consciousness. He designs an insightful exciting romp through the surreal landscape of our society and illustrates how various pioneers have lead us to a crossroads. I’m truly impressed with Aievoli’s perspicacious comprehension of where digital has taken us through the hands of these select individuals. --Sequoyah Wharton

The Bakken Goes Boom: Oil And The Changing Geographies Of Western North Dakota, William Caraher, Kyle Conway Feb 2016

The Bakken Goes Boom: Oil And The Changing Geographies Of Western North Dakota, William Caraher, Kyle Conway

Digital Press Books

In 2008, the Bakken went boom. Thanks to advances in hydraulic fracturing, oil production in western North Dakota exploded. As the price of oil went up, so did the oil rigs. People came from all over the country (and the world) in search of work, and cities and towns struggled to keep up. This book is about the challenges they faced. It is about the human dimensions of the boom, as told by artists, poets, journalists, and scholars. It captures the boom at its peak, before the price of oil fell and the boom went bust.

This is the only ...

Clarity, Organization, Precision, Economy: A Technical Writing Guide For Engineers, David J. Adams, University Of New Haven Jan 2014

Clarity, Organization, Precision, Economy: A Technical Writing Guide For Engineers, David J. Adams, University Of New Haven

Civil Engineering Faculty Book Series

Faculty and employers who work with engineers have consistently identified four areas of deficiency in the engineers’ technical writing: clarity, organization, precision and economy. This third edition of the guidebook grew out of efforts to teach engineering students at the University of New Haven to improve their communication skills. David Adams lays out fourteen guidelines and numerous examples that students and faculty can use as common ground when discussing writing.

Automatic Sprinkler, George I. Rockwood Apr 1911

Automatic Sprinkler, George I. Rockwood

WPI Innovations

My invention relates to automatic sprinklers in which a water nozzle is closed by a cap, normally held in position under pressure by a cap retaining device, containing a fusible member that allows the cap retaining device to collapse under pressure when .a pre-determined degree of heat has been reached, and it consists in the construction and arrangement of parts as hereinafter described and pointed out in the annexed claims.

selvage-heddle mechanism consisting of the
rock-shaft G and connecting-straps D E, and
detaching mechanism, substantially as and
for the purposes set forth.”
