'In this remarkable account, certain to stir the interest of educators, counselors, parents, and people in all types of business as well as young people themselves, Neil Howe and William Strauss introduce the nation to a powerful new generation: the Millennials. They will also explain: Why today's teens are smart, well-behaved, and optimisitc, and why you won't hear older people say that. Why they get along so well with their Boomer and Xer parents. Why Millennial collegians will bring a new youth revolution to America's campuses. Why names like "Generation Y" and "Echo Boom" just don't work for today's kids. Having looked at oceans of data, taken their own polls, and talked to hundreds of kids, parents, and teachers, Howe and Strauss explain how Millennials are turning out to be so dramatically different from Xers and boomers and how, in time, they will become the next great generation.'

The fourth turning : an American prophecy by William Strauss( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and Chinese and held by 1,392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors look back five hundred years and uncover a distinct pattern: modern history moves in cycles, each one lasting about the length of a human life, each composed of four eras - or "turnings"--That last about twenty years and that always arrive in the same order. First comes a high, a period of confident expansion as a new order takes root after the old has been swept away. Next comes an awakening, a time of spiritual exploration and rebellion against the now-established order. Then comes an unravelling, an increasingly troubled era in which individualism triumphs over crumbling institutions. Last comes a crisis - the fourth turning - when society passes through a great and perilous gate in history. Together, the four turnings comprise history's seasonal rhythm of growth, maturation, entropy, and rebirth. By applying the lessons of history, The fourth turning makes some bold and hopeful predictions about America's next rendezvous with destiny. It also shows us how we can prepare for what's ahead, both individually and as a nation

Development of Line Ranging Equipment by Niels O Young( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Equipment has been developed and demonstrated capable of extending and directing a moving loop of line and maintaining it standing essentially horizontally over variable ranges as though it were a rigid structure. Theoretical data were confirmed by tests indicating that line can be deployed and precisely directed with a power requirement of one horsepower per one hundred feet of range at any angle to the vertical. With further development the equipment is expected to be useful where line-throwing guns are now used and in salvage, life-saving and rescue operations. (Author)
