Ever since Chris Bennett graduated high school a year ago, he's been trying to figure out what's next. His lifeguarding job has kept him busy, and in southern California, poolside isn't a bad place to be. But he's spent most of his time thinking about Seth, the former classmate who became something more for a few brief moments last summer. Now Seth is back, but he seems to be running toward Chris and running away from him at the same time
The cellmate by Rachel West( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andy Bingham got behind the wheel after a night of heavy drinking and set in motion a series of events that would change his life forever. On his first night in prison after his drunk driving conviction, his cellmate, Jesse Cohen, surprises him by crawling into his bed. The sex is impersonal, not at all Andy's style, but somehow exactly what he needs, and it feels so good to be close to someone again that he doesn't question it. The two men gradually forge a friendship, to their mutual surprise. As Andy learns more about the dark periods in Jesse's past, they begin to understand that they have more in common than they once suspected. Andy and Jesse are on a slow and painful road, and they will struggle to acknowledge something of substance between them ... and to discover whether what they have can survive the tough road that lies ahead

"What does one do when the day has fewer hours than normal? This brilliantly illustrated poem brings to life the silly tale of what might happen if some of the numbers on the clock just didn't show up for work. Illness, forgetfulness, and love have all got our familiar friends preoccupied, leading to a very interesting day." -- Page 4 of cover

Ocean Today. rediscovering the Ironclad( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The video is part of the Ocean Today educational video collection (sub-collection: The USS Monitor - Rediscovering the Ironclad). It has open captions and can be viewed in regular (640 x 36) or high resolution (1280 x 720). Video's transcript (narrated by Rachel West): "Ocean exploration is all about making new discoveries. But sometimes the most fascinating findings of things of all is when things are rediscovered. The USS Monitor was a civil war ironclad warship that sank in 1862. Sixteen lives were lost. It stayed there unseen and untouched for 100 years until it was rediscovered in 1973. As an important piece of US history, the Monitor's protection and management were entrusted to NOAA, as it was designated the first national marine sanctuary in 1975. NOAA and its partners began conducting expeditions to the Monitor in 1977. Through the combined efforts of submersible vehicles, scientific and salvage divers, and new salvage technology, the entirety of the Monitor wreck site was mapped and documented. Both minor and major artifacts were recovered. Those major artifacts included the ship's anchor, propeller, and turret. As researchers were digging through the sediment in the turret, they made an amazing discovery. Buried within were the skeletal remains of two of the Monitor's crew. The sediment has preserved the bones, protecting them from the harsh ocean environment. Exhaustive efforts were made to identify who these sailors may have been, but an exact identification could not be determined. And on March 8, 2013, the remains of the two sailors were laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery will full military honors. There are an estimated three million shipwrecks on the ocean's floor, each with its own mysteries and stories just waiting to be discovered. But it's important that we take the proper steps to preserve and protect these artifacts as vital glimpses into our maritime history."
Ocean Today. 25 years later( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The video is part of the Ocean Today educational video collection (sub-collection: Fix the Ocean). It is with open captions and can be viewed in regular (640 x 36) or high resolution (1280 x 720). Video's transcript: "NARRATOR: On March 24, 1989, the Exxon Valdez grounded on Bligh Reef in Prince William Sound, rupturing the hull and spilling oil into the pristine waters of Alaska. In all, nearly 11 million gallons of crude oil devastated this remote and biologically productive body of water. Hundreds of thousands of birds, mammals, and other marine organisms were killed or injured. In response to the spill, Congress enacted the Oil Pollution Act in 1990. Now, as tankers pass through Prince William Sound, they are monitored by the US Coast Guard via satellite and are accompanied by two escort vessels. All tankers must have double hulls by the year 2015. Contingency plans must now include a scenario for a spill of 12.6 million gallons, training drills, and rapid notification of incidents. Twenty-five years later, NOAA scientists continue to monitor the areas affected by the Valdez spill and use this knowledge to refine their approach to future spills. One of the most significant advancements is ERMA. It’s an online tool that gathers all sorts of data like ocean currents and weather, current ship locations, and the predicted path of the oil in real time. This data is layered on a single map with the resources that may be damaged. These maps give emergency managers the information they need to make better decisions when responding to the spill. ERMA was developed during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010. These maps helped coordinate emergency response efforts across federal, state, and local partners. And they’ve been crucial to assessing the damage to fish, wildlife, surrounding habitats, and the public use of those resources. Oil spills will always pose a major threat to marine life, our beaches and wetlands, and our livelihoods. And NOAA will continue to refine these tools and develop new technologies to improve how we respond to these disasters."

Colonial National Historical Park : shuttle service survey report by John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center (U.S.)( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"As part of an effort to evaluate the shuttle service at Colonial National Historical Park, The Volpe National Transportation Systems Center administered a survey to a sample of shuttle users in July 2009. The key purpose of this survey was to learn how visitors are using the shuttle service and to measure their level of satisfaction with the service. The survey finds that the large majority of shuttle users arrived in the area by personal vehicle (87%) and started their shuttle ride at Colonial Williamsburg on the Historic Triangle Shuttle. Visiting groups intercepted over the survey period expressed a very high level of overall satisfaction with the shuttle service. 99% of groups riding the shuttle reported that they were either 'very satisfied' or 'satisfied' with their overall experience on the shuttle. Visitors similarly reported being pleased with specific features of the shuttle service, including timeliness, frequency of service and number of sites covered, and ease of understanding shuttle route information and locating stops. For each of these features of the service, three-quarters or more of respondents reported being 'very satisfied.' Overall, the survey findings indicate that users strongly support the shuttle service. The survey data clearly demonstrate that visitors value the service and feel that it enhances their experience at the park."--Technical report documentation page

Humanitarian diplomacy : the U.S. asylum system's role in protecting global LGBT rights by Sharita Gruberg( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

" ... the US government has recognized the right of LGBT people fleeing persecution in their home countries to seek protection in the United States. While much has been done to recognize the right of these individuals to access U.S. protection, there is little information available to determine how effective these measures have been, since the government does not collect sexual orientation and gender identity data in the asylum system ... [we enlisted the help of Immigration Equality and Human Rights First to provide] access to their data about LGBT asylum seekers, along with insight into how well the US is protecting LGBT people fleeing persecution. Briefly, [their] data ... shows the following: LGBT people seeking asylum are more likely to win their claims if they apply affirmatively -- that is, if they apply when they are not already in a removal proceeding -- rather than defensively, where asylum seekers are in a removal proceeding and must prove that they should not be deported ; Transgender people seeking asylum do not apply affirmatively as frequently as nontransgender asylum seekers do ; Detention hurts LGBT applicants' chances of being granted asylum ; LGBT asylum seekers are disproportionately affected by the one-year filing deadline."--Website
An analysis of the factors influencing ITS technology adoption and deployment : final report : November, 2011( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This study analyzes the factors influencing the adoption of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) technologies in the U.S. amongst state and local transportation agencies. Using data from the ITS Deployment Tracking survey, insight is provided on how economic and demographic factors influence ITS adoption/deployment, the role safety or mobility problems play in the decision to adopt/deploy ITS technologies, and how policy can affect ITS adoption/deployment. In addition, this study examines the historical adoption patterns of ITS technologies as they entered the market place. Results indicate ITS markets are primarily made up of imitators (as opposed to innovators) and at the aggregate level the markets examined are mature. Key factors affecting the adoption and deployment of ITS include agency funding levels and the presence of a regional architecture. Based on these results, policy recommendations are presented on how best the USDOT might target its efforts to influence the pattern of ITS adoption. THese recommendations include support for additional funding for state and local agencies, requirement of regional ITS architectures, knowledge sharing programs and continue to provide evidence, through operational and evaluation tests, of the effectiveness of ITS technologies."--Technical report documentation page
