Disc 1. Integrated compost systems : "See how to design, implement and operate effective compost systems. Explore the basics of setting up a compost system including: collection, design, site selection and numerous techniques that help to make composting both effective and profitable. Visit several large compost operations." The science of biological decomposition : effective composting methods : "See how to create compost and explore its water and nutrient holding capacity. Learn the basics of aerobic hot composting and then explore how to create a good C:N ratio when layering. Learn how to implement proper watering rates and how to use a thermometer to determine the pile's mesophyllic/thermophilic cycle, and much more." Disc 2. Soil biology : "This extensive program teaches basic soil biology with clear narration, effective use of graphics and fascinating microphotography that brings into focus the many life forms in the soil of our farms and landscapes."
Backflow prevention manual ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One serious risk that exists in most major water supply systems is that of the possibility of backflow of contaminated water from hazardous sites into the potable water mains. ... The intent of this Manual is to provide clear guidelines to government agencies, developers, consultants, contractors, property owners, business owners and people involved in the water industry of PWC specific backflow requirements."--P. 2

A Good Idea Comes to Fruition: The F/A-18 Center Barrel Replacement-Plus Program ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Naval jets live hard. That point is well illustrated by the U.S. Navy's premier fighter/attack aircraft, the F/A-18 Hornet. Achieving initial operating capability in 1984, the Hornet was designed to fly 6,000 hours and accumulate 2,000 arrested landings and 8,300 total landings. Day after day, the jets are stressed to the edges of the engineering envelope, and the toll of repeated oscillating G-forces isn't easily predicted when the structures are initially designed. Such destructive forces have their greatest effect on attach points, where the aircraft's wings and main landing gear join its fuselage frame. Those attach points, along with the surrounding fuselage section, are dubbed the aircraft's center barrel. One expression of the destructive toll is a metric called wing root fatigue life expended (WRFLE), and it is calculated through a complicated engineering analysis that determines each aircraft's remaining structural integrity at the critical wing attach points. In 1991, a Hornet with low flight hours experienced an excessively hard carrier landing that caused what was considered irreparable damage to the aircraft's center barrel section. The crippled Hornet was shipped to the Navy's Fleet Readiness Center SW in San Diego, Calif., for damage assessment. The damage was so severe that it was judged to be beyond even the FRC's capabilities. Industry repair estimates were as high as 50% of the original procurement cost, and the time to design and build repair fixtures was forecast at 3 years. A team of depot engineers, technicians, and logisticians within FRC SW rose to the challenge to do what had never been done before. They developed the machinery and technology to remove and replace the damaged center barrel. The process, named the Center Barrel Replacement-Plus (CBR+) Program, transformed the Hornet community's views of the impact of WRFLE on an aircraft's serviceability and gave DoD valuable breathing space in developing a successor platform for the Hornet

Milk, superfood by Mark Skinner ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Abstract: Designed to educate children and young adults in the Mariana Islands about the food value of milk, this short slide presentation depicts children preparing milk drinks, a mother breast feeding her infant, and a milk nutrient graph. In the accompanying cassette, young people are interviewed about their preference of milk to soft drinks, knowledge of nutrient contents, and calcium and other benefits of milk are discussed
