But when his downstairs neighbor begins taking in stray cats - many stray cats - their pungent miasma drifting upward through a heating vent makes that apartment unbearable. Bad as they are, though, the felines only seem to be the catalyst for an entire series of mishaps for Eric, including the unraveling of his sister's affair with a married lawyer, a surprise visit by his father that stretches on endlessly, and the growing awkwardness of trying to deal with his best friend, who's recently discovered he's gay. Most perplexing is Wanda, the rather plain woman who accosted him one Sunday after church and who now seems to be getting more entangled in his life, despite her affair with an ex-priest. While Elsie house-sits in a luxurious penthouse, keeping careful watch over a veritable fleet of VCRs taping every show on television, Eric reluctantly takes refuge in her more modest East Village apartment

Spring 1985 leeway experiment by Lewis Nash( Book )

2 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Coast Guard R and DC and Florida Atlantic University (FAU) conducted an experiment off the east coast of Florida during March and April 1985 in order to determine the leeway of various craft common in Search and Rescue (SAR) situations. Leeway, defined as the response of a survivor craft to the effect of wind alone, is an important component of the total drift calculation for a survivor craft. Other components are the sea current, tidal current, and wind-driven current. Leeway data will be utilized by search planners to predict the movement of various search targets. The search targets evaluated were three types of 4-man life rafts, one 6-man life raft, and three types of small boats (less than 21 feet in length). This report presents results of the R and DC's statistical analysis. Results of FAU's use of the data to calibrate and test a numerical model are presented separately, DOT/OST/P-34/87/058, August 1986. Leeway was calculated as the difference between the test craft's velocity and the average current of the upper three feet of the water column. The oceanic surface current at the test craft was determined from an array of drifters surrounding the test craft. The drifters and small craft were tracked by a Microwave Tracking System (MTS). The wind was measured onboard the small craft at a height of six feet above the ocean surface. The apparent wind relative to the current at the raft was used in the analysis. life raft, drogue, leeway

La plácida y aburrida vida de Mr. Pickens, el neurótico encargado adjunto de la tienda de Ofertas Sonny Boy de Tula Springs, se ve trastornada cuando le diagnostican por error un cáncer terminal y su hermanastro, F. X., un actor frustrado y aterrado por la inminente entrada en la cuarentena, se instala en su casa tras salir de la Prisión Estatal de Angola en la que cumplía sentencia por tráfico de cocaína. Cuando la joven pelirroja Toinette Quaid y la oronda Burma LaSteele, ambas colegas de Mr. Pickens en la tienda de ofertas, pasan a buscarlo por su casa para tomar algo y descubren al nuevo y apuesto inquilino, se desencadenará una cadena de malentendidos, mentiras y afectos contrariados que no hará más que complicarse hasta que entra en escena la impetuosa abogada solterona Donna Lee, que, queriendo ponerlo todo en su sitio, provocará que todo se desmadre. Baptistas modernos, la primera novela de James Wilcox, es una de las comedias más entrañables de la prosa norteamericana de los últimos tiempos y da vida a una colección de personajes inolvidable. Fue extensamente alabada por la crítica cuando se publicó por primera vez, en 1983, y el prestigioso crítico literario Harold Bloom la incluyó en su célebre lista de El canon occidental. Esta edición incluye el primer relato de Wilcox, «Mr. Ray», también ambientado en Tula Springs, así como un artículo de James B. Stewart, publicado originalmente en The New Yorker, donde se narran, a modo de epílogo, las peripecias de Wilcox para sobrevivir como escritor profesional. Este volumen se abre con un prólogo escrito por el autor específicamente para esta ocasión, la primera vez que se vierte a Wilcox al castellano. (Fuente: www.editorialcontra.com)

Co-synthesis of LiFePO4 and Carbon Nanotubes( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rate capabilities of LiFePO{sub 4} composites are dependent on the structure of the carbon that coats the powders, formed during co-calcination with carbon containing precursors. The addition of readily decomposed pyromellitic acid and graphitization catalysts such as ferrocene during synthesis results in coatings with low D/G (disordered/graphene) ratios, while maintaining the carbon content of the powders below 2 wt. %. This is important to avoid adversely affecting the tap density. The good correlation between the pressed pellet conductivities of the LiFePO{sub 4}/C composites and their rate capability in lithium cells is further confirmation of the importance of the carbon structure, because graphitic carbons generally have higher conductivities than disordered ones
