"The rules are different for a woman. But in Hong Kong, the rules are very different, whether the woman is American or Chinese, with a man or alone. ... Exotic, erotic, fast-paced and above all, compellingly present, JADE carries the reader into a Hong Kong you can taste and smell, offering a sense of place as immediate as an airline ticket. Here is a portrait of a city vibrant with white-hot emotions, where sex offers pleausre and pain, and every conceivalbe passion is fulfilled."--Cover

Interstate shipment of municipal solid waste by James E McCarthy( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, which replaces a 2004 report on the same subject (CRS Report RL32570), provides updated information on interstate shipment of municipal solid waste (MSW). Since the late 1980s, Congress has considered, but not enacted, numerous bills that would allow states to impose restrictions on interstate waste shipments, a step the Constitution prohibits in the absence of congressional authorization. Over this period, there has been a continuing interest in knowing how much waste is being shipped across state lines for disposal, and what states might be affected by proposed legislation. This report provides data useful in addressing these questions. It generally presents data as of 2005. Total interstate waste shipments continue to rise due to the closure of older local landfills and the consolidation of the waste management industry. More than 42 million tons of municipal solid waste crossed state lines for disposal in 2005, an increase of 8% over 2003. Waste imports have grown significantly since CRS began tracking them in the early 1990s, and now represent 25.3% of the municipal solid waste disposed at landfills and waste combustion facilities. In the last 10 years, reported imports have increased 147%. New York remains the largest exporter of waste, with New Jersey in second place. Nine other states (Illinois, Missouri, Maryland, Massachusetts, Washington, Minnesota, North Carolina, Indiana, and Florida), the District of Columbia, and the Canadian province of Ontario also exported more than 1 million tons each
West of Paradise : a novel by Gwen Davis( )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kate Donnelly, an aspiring writer, has made her way to Los Angeles to pick up the fallen standard of her literary hero, F. Scott Fitzgerald, whose last great obsession had been with Hollywood and its peculiar industry. Prepared to immerse herself in all that is LA, Kate heads straight to Westwood Mortuary, the city's most celebrity-packed cemetery (Marilyn Monroe is there), to crash the celebrity-packed funeral of the renowned and despised Hollywood producer Larry Drayco. Kate soon finds herself masquerading among strangers who can't distinguish between Hemingway and Fitzgerald and mixing with ex-duchesses, major players, private detectives, aging enfants terribles, dealmakers, and philosopher-gurus as she makes her way in this foreign land
