How to watch TV news by Neil Postman ( Book )
15 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 1,278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
America is suffering from an information glut, and most Americans are no longer clear about what news is worth remembering or how any of it connects to anything else. Thus Americans are rapidly becoming the least knowledgeable people in the industrial world. For anyone who wants to control--not be controlled by--the powerful influence of television, How to Watch TV News shows you how to become a discerning viewer
How to watch TV news by Neil Postman ( )
4 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Neil Postman, an author and academic, and Steve Powers, a television journalist, reveal the difference between what TV news says it is presenting and what it actually delivers, entertainment fodder versus genuine news. They explain why TV news has become a "cash cow," pointing to the symbiotic relationship between TV news and advertising. They also stress that anyone who relies exclusively on television for his or her knowledge of the world is making a serious mistake

Bridge deck repair techniques : final report by Steve Powers ( Book )
3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of this project was to analyze four bridge decks in the Fairbanks area that required repairs due to corrosion and to make the necessary repairs. The Illinois Street, Minnie Street, and Wendell Street bridges were repaired during the 1982 construction season, and the Cushman Street bridge will be refurbished this summer (1983). Two repair techniques were utilized for these bridge decks. The Illinois Street and Minnie Street bridges were overlaid with latex-modified concrete. The Cushman Street bridge will also be overlaid with latex-modified concrete. The Wendell Street deck, in addition to being overlaid with latex-modified concrete, has a cathodic protection system. Both methods required the removal of all delaminated concrete. The corroded reinforcing steel rust was either cleaned or replaced. The latex-modified concrete overlay acts as a membrane that should reduce further intrusion of chloride from deicing salts and water, thereby slowing down the corrosion process. The cathodic protection system being used in conjunction with the latex-modified concrete overlay is designed to halt corrosion. The system functions by supplying direct current in the proper direction so that the corroding anodes on the steel are prevented from discharging ions, thus stopping corrosion. The merits of each technique are being evaluated with regard to cost effectiveness and ability to halt corrosion

Prevention Effectiveness Foreign Object Debris Study (PrE-FOD) ( )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This project investigated the effectiveness of several types of support equipment commonly used to prevent Foreign Object Debris (FOD) from damaging aircraft engines and structures. All of the equipment investigated was designed to collect FOD from the flightline surface, thereby reducing damage risk. The study examined motorized flightline sweepers, towable FOD sweepers (FOD-busters), and magnetic bars. A series of site visits was conducted to operational units in order to get user feedback on the effectiveness of the various pieces of equipment. Additionally, a limited controlled experiment was conducted at Wright-Patterson AFB to quantitatively evaluate each of the equipment types. The user comments and the quantitative evaluation both identified serious shortfalls in the Air Force's current FOD prevention equipment, both in terms of effectiveness and reliability. Several possible actions to address these shortfalls are listed in the report
