Environmental compliance guidebook beyond US water quality regulations by Christine Herndon( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guidebook is the result of working with agencies in the water sector over the past several years. Although water and wastewater utilities are intimately familiar with the requirements to meet their missions, whether delivering safe drinking water or treating wastewater and meeting discharge requirements, they are often much less familiar with other environmental regulations such as those governing the management of hazardous waste. Furthermore, most agencies do not have a person, much less a department, dedicated to ensuring environmental compliance. Therefore, the need for a guidebook such as this became apparent, and through the support of the American Water Works Association (AWWA), Water Utility Council (WUC), and the Water Industry Technical Action Fund (WITAF), it became a reality. Additionally, AWWA's legal advisors reviewed the guidebook to ensure it accurately describes and references the regulatory requirements. Water is a vital resource that no one can live without. Assisting utilities in complying with environmental regulations to minimize their risk is critical to ensure that resources available for capital improvements and other projects will enable facilities to fulfill their mission

Public debts nuts, bolts and worries by Barry J Eichengreen( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The importance of fiscal discipline for developed countries has long been ignored or minimised, because they seem able to borrow and to keep borrowing for decades. The crisis has shown that discipline may be slow to assert itself, but has acutely painful consequences when it does. This 13th Geneva REport on the World economy is devoted to fiscal policy reforms in the US Europe and japan. It offers a common political-economy framework to diagnose the need for fiscal consolidation and proposes institutional solutions rooted in that diagnosis. It includes a detailed analysis of how we got to the current situation, as well as a look at the very long run, when demographic factors already in place will sharpen an already degraded situation. The political-economy framework presents the common pool interpretation of the deficits bias, the widespread tendency of demographic governments to spend more than they can collect in taxes. It arises because those who benefit from public spending are not the same as those who pay taxes. The former ask for more spending, the latter ask for less taxation, and governments need to please voters to be (re)elected. The policy response must address these fundamental characteristics of advanced democracies by adopting institutions and rules that lessen the common pool problem. Because electoral systems differ widely from one country to another, leading to different forms of common pool effects, no single institutional arrangement is best suited everywhere. This report links political systems to forms of institutional arrangements. At this juncture, when the sovereign debt crisis is acute in the Eurozone, menacing in the US and potentially festering in Japan, the report argues that fiscal stabilization is easier the faster the economy is growing. It also advances suggestions on how to make debts sustainable through growth-enhancing measures."--P [4] de la couv

Footfalls echo in the memory : a life with the Colonial Education Service and the British Council in Asia by Verner Bickley( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation The Education Service was a vital sector of the British Colonial Service while the British Council has been paramount in promoting the English language and culture overseas. But are both agents of colonialism and neo-colonialism? Or simply altruistic conveyors of language and culture to a wider world? Verner Bickley as an Education Officer in British Colonial Service in Singapore and as British Council officer in Burma, Indonesia and Japan, shows how cultural values were uppermost and important in themselves though the medium of the near-universal English language, and vital for technical training. Bickley's service was set against a backdrop of political turbulence after World War II, colonial independence movements and the emergence of Japan as an economic powerhouse. This personal account of his career is enlivened by a succession of meetings with diverse personalities, including royalty, British and Thai, as well as writers like Anthony Burgess, Graham Greene and Willis Hall and actors such as Donald Sinden, Patrick Stewart and Max Adrian

John Williams's film music : Jaws, Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and the return of the classical Hollywood music style by Emilio Audissino( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Williams is one of the most renowned film composers in history. He has penned unforgettable scores for Star Wars, the Indiana Jones series, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Jaws, Superman, and countless other films. Fans flock to his many concerts, and with forty-nine Academy Award nominations as of 2014, he is the second-most Oscar-nominated person after Walt Disney. Yet despite such critical acclaim and prestige, this is the first book in English on Williams's work and career. Combining accessible writing with thorough scholarship, and rigorous historical accounts with insightful readings, John Williams's Film Music explores why Williams is so important to the history of film music. Beginning with an overview of music from Hollywood's Golden Age (1933-58), Emilio Audissino traces the turning points of Williams's career and articulates how he revived the classical Hollywood musical style. This book charts each landmark of this musical restoration, with special attention to the scores for Jaws and Star Wars, Williams's work as conductor of the Boston Pops Orchestra, and a full film/music analysis of Raiders of the Lost Ark. The result is a precise, enlightening definition of Williams's "neoclassicism" and a grounded demonstration of his lasting importance, for both his compositions and his historical role in restoring part of the Hollywood tradition [Publisher description]
