Leadership on the federal bench : the craft and activism of Jack Weinstein by Jeffrey B Morris( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leadership on the Federal Bench: The Craft and Activism of Jack Weinstein considers the ways a particularly gifted federal judge seized the opportunities available to district judges to influence the results of the cases before him, and employed the tools available to him to make policy having a national impact. In the book, author Jeffrey Morris considers the ways in which the judge, Jack Weinstein of the Eastern District of New York, has been limited by his position. This book adds to the slim literature about the policy-making role of district judges applying the work of legal historians, political scientists and those trained in the law. Focusing upon an admitted judicial activist - perhaps the most famous, innovative and controversial district judge sitting today - the book permits a close look at activism at the trial level. Leadership on the Federal Bench: The Craft and Activism of Jack Weinstein begins by analyzing the job of a federal district judge and why it is profitable to study Judge Weinstein. Related topics include Weinstein's background before appointment to the bench; the political and legal environment within which Weinstein has judged and the characteristics of the district in which he sat and its possible impact on him. Part of the book focuses on Weinstein's judicial output for each of his four decades on the bench. Cases are drawn from a diverse number of areas, among them the areas of civil rights, freedom of speech, search and seizures, organized crime and political corruption cases, evidence and procedure. Finally, conclusions are made on the role of district courts, judicial activism in general, along with a summary of Judge Weinstein's career

A study of window-focusing effects on laser ignition for medium-caliber systems( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One proposed implementation of medium-caliber laser ignition employs a focusing ball to replace the conventional electric primer. The effects of ball size and igniter stand-off distance have been characterized experimentally with black powder pellets. Ignition threshold and delay experiments were carried out using 4 mm and 6 mm diameter glass beads with standoffs up to 1.5 mm. Ray tracing was used to model the energy distribution of a top-hat beam profile refracted through a focusing ball. Results of the study indicate that the tighter focus of the 4 mm bead can reduce the required laser pulse energy with little effect on the ignition delay
Extraction of nitroguanidine (NQ) from triple-base gun propellant by Jeffrey B Morris( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Laboratory-scale solubility and extraction studies were carried out to investigate the feasibility for recovery of nitroguanidine (NQ) from M30 triple-base gun propellant. The recovery process that was investigated involved stripping nitroglycerine (NG) from M30 propellant using supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2), followed by aqueous extraction of NQ. The solubilities of NQ and NG in supercritical CO2 were investigated. NQ was found to be relatively insoluble. NG was found to be up to six orders of magnitude more soluble than NQ in supercritical CO2. The solubility of NQ in water was investigated at atmospheric pressure. Data were taken over a range of temperatures from 28 deg C to 75 deg C. The solubility data were found to follow an exponential function of 1/T over a range of 0 deg C to 100 deg C. The solubility of NQ varies by almost two orders of magnitude over this temperature range. A significant matrix effect was observed for the extraction of NG from M30 propellant. Prior micromilling of the propellant considerably enhanced the extraction of NG using supercritical CO2. NQ was readily extracted from NG-depleted M30 propellant using hot water. The bulk of the NQ was recovered by precipitation at 1 deg C.A small amount of NQ remained unrecovered in the extraction solution
