Most attempts to control pollution have been piecemeal, focusing on one environmental component at a time, such as air or water, and have not addressed the big picture. Such efforts have not fully accounted for the Earth's fundamental interconnectedness and unity; as a result, pollution control has often lagged behind pollution-related problems. This book puts all the pieces together as it explains how pollution affects all components of the environment. Using layperson's language and an easy-to-use question and answer format, it describes: how the components of the environment operate together; major sources of pollution; and what we can do to clean up our surface water, groundwater, and air. Care has been taken to avoid bias and to present only the most sound, objective data available.

Dollars and Sense: Maine State Budgeting at a Crossroads provides a "bird's eye" view and analysis. The value of this approach is the capacity to take an "arm's length" look at state finances. We hope that the broader perspective will promote viewing expenditure and tax policy issues comprehensively, not as isolated slices of the state budget pie, but rather, as interdependent building blocks of a healthy fiscal system. There is an important limitation to an "outside" study, however, which is actually the same as its strength: distance from the "whys" and "whens." We do not pretend to understand every policy area as fully as specialists within government, nor to be privy to the same information. Thus, this report will be best used as a working document, to encourage and facilitate directed inquiry, open and thoughtful discussion of issues, and hopefully, decisions that can place Maine on a sound fiscal footing for the 1990's.

This theoretically sophisticated yet highly readable study presents a genealogy of the uses of conversion narratives in linking individual identity to various forms of social authority. In The Mutilating God, Gerald Peters shows how these narratives have been used in different ways to negotiate between private motivation and social authority in the production of an identity.

More about this chapter:
In this work we report on a general and extensible framework, called OPL, for quickly constructing reasonable solutions to a broad class of complex discrete optimization problems. Our approach rests on the observation that many such problems can be represented by linking together variants of well-understood primitive optimization problems. We exploit this representation by building libraries of solution methods for the primitive problems. These library methods are then suitably composed to build solutions for the original problem.
The vehicle routing problem and its generalizations, which involve not only routing but also delivery scheduling, crew scheduling, etc., is a significant and extensively investigated area of operations research. In this paper we report on OPL definitions and solutions for a wide variety of such problems.

Chapter from The Body in Medical Thought and Practice, edited by Drew Leder.
More about this chapter:
The epidemic of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is one of the most significant threats to health in the United States in the latter part of the century. While medical researchers scurry to find ways to arrest AIDS-related infection in the body, scholars in the humanities have been at work analyzing a crisis of representation in academia, manifested by recent theories of interpretation (e.g., deconstruction, post-structuralism, post-modernism). In the epistemic epidemic, the vitality of our conceptual framework, the ways we know, and the means by which we interpret cultural experience are under siege. These two epidemics have much to do with each other, not only because of their synchronicity, but also because breakthroughs in ways of understanding cultural experience affect our interpretations of health and disease. One person whose life was caught up in both epidemics was Michel Foucault. Foucault was a leading French post-structuralist, perhaps the most notable French philosopher since Sartre. He was also involved in gay liberation struggles and the first intellectual of international importance to die of AIDS, a disease that is, not infrequently sexually transmitted, and in the U.S. was first diagnosed in and disproportionately affects gay men. Foucault’s death brought to an end his three-volume study of sexuality, a work which leaves no hint that it was written during an epidemic, and bears no mention of sexually transmitted disease. Yet, his writings on the whole lend themselves to analyses of the AIDS epidemic.

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act and the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act have spawned an enormous and complex body of regulations and requirements--among the most complicated laws in the land.

Middle level education is experiencing unparalleled growth as an organizational alternative. No longer referred to as a movement, it has become a fixture in our educational system. The lesson for educators and others, it would appear, is that educators have the knowlege and desire to implement change. If such change is to be successful, however, individual, group, and intergroup needs must be considered.
This monograph provides an opportunity for readers to examine current policies,programs, amd practices in light of recent developments at the middle level. It is our desire that by studying the successes of out colleagues at the middle level, all levels will be improved.
