The Big Necessity

1 rating

Summary

"One smart book...delving deep into the history and implications of a daily act that dare not speak its name." (Newsweek)

Acclaimed as "extraordinary" (The New York Times) and "a classic" (Los Angeles Times), The Big Necessity is on its way to removing the taboo on bodily waste - something common to all and as natural as breathing. We prefer not to talk about it, but we should - even those of us who take care of our business in pristine, sanitary conditions. Disease spread by waste kills more people worldwide every year than any other single cause of death. Even in America, nearly two million people have no access to an indoor toilet. Yet the subject remains unmentionable.

Moving from the underground sewers of Paris, London, and New York (an infrastructure disaster waiting to happen) to an Indian slum where ten toilets are shared by 60,000 people, The Big Necessity breaks the silence, revealing everything that matters about how people do - and don't - deal with their own waste. With razor-sharp wit and crusading urgency, mixing levity with gravity, Rose George has turned the subject we like to avoid into a cause with the most serious of consequences.

Summary

New York Times Book Review Paperback Row Selection An investigation into the damage wrought by the colossal clothing industry and the grassroots, high-tech, international movement fighting to reform it.... What should I wear? It’s one of the fundamental questions we ask ourselves every day. More than ever, we are told it should be something new. Today, the clothing industry churns out 80 billion garments a year and employs every sixth person on Earth. Historically, the apparel trade has exploited labor, the environment, and intellectual property - and in the last three decades, with the simultaneous unfurling of fast fashion, globalization, and the tech revolution, those abuses have multiplied exponentially, primarily out of view. We are in dire need of an entirely new human-scale model. Best-selling journalist Dana Thomas has traveled the globe to discover the visionary designers and companies who are propelling the industry toward that more positive future by reclaiming traditional craft and launching cutting-edge sustainable technologies to produce better fashion.  In Fashionopolis, Thomas sees renewal in a host of developments, including printing 3-D clothes, clean denim processing, smart manufacturing, hyperlocalism, fabric recycling - even lab-grown materials. From small-town makers and Silicon Valley whizzes to such household names as Stella McCartney, Levi’s, and Rent the Runway, Thomas highlights the companies big and small that are leading the crusade.  We all have been casual about our clothes. It's time to get dressed with intention. Fashionopolis is the first comprehensive look at how to start.

How to Build an Android

2 ratings

Summary

The stranger-than-fiction story of the ingenious creation and loss of an artificially intelligent android of science fiction writer Philip K. Dick. In December 2005, a young robotocist on his way to Google headquarters lost an overnight bag on a flight somewhere between Dallas and Las Vegas. In it was the fully functional head of an android replica of Philip K. Dick, cult science fiction writer and counterculture guru. It has never been recovered. In a story that echoes some of the most paranoid fantasies of a Dick novel, listeners will get a fascinating inside look at the scientists and technology that made this amazing android possible. The author, who was a fellow researcher at the University of Memphis Institute for Intelligent Systems while the android was being built, introduces listeners to the cutting-edge technology in robotics, artificial intelligence, and sculpture that came together in this remarkable machine and captured the imagination of scientists, artists, and science fiction fans alike. There are also great stories about Dick himself - his inspired yet deeply pessimistic worldview, his bizarre lifestyle, and his enduring creative legacy. In the tradition of popular science classics such as Packing for Mars and The Disappearing Spoon, How to Build an Android is entertaining and informative - popular science at its best. David F. Dufty is a senior research officer at the Australian Bureau of Statistics. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Memphis at the time the android was being developed and worked closely with the team of scientists who created it. He completed a psychology degree with honors at the University of Newcastle and has a PhD in psychology from Macquarie University.

Summary

Winner of the 2018 Audiobook Listeners Award for Nonfiction   On May 2, 1970, a DC-9 jet with 57 passengers and a crew of six departed from New York's JFK International Airport en route to the tropical island of St. Maarten, but four hours and 34 minutes later the flight ended in the shark-infested waters of the Caribbean. It was, and remains, the only open-water ditching of a commercial jet. The subsequent rescue of survivors took nearly three hours and involved the coast guard, navy, and marines. This gripping account of that fateful day recounts what was happening inside the cabin, the cockpit, and the helicopters as the crews struggled against the weather and dwindling daylight to rescue the survivors, who had only their life vests and a lone escape chute to keep them afloat

The Captains of Thor

1 rating

Summary

Was it the captain's fault, as many said? Or did the company, the Coast Guard, and the American Bureau of Shipping all have a hand on the helm of the SS El Faro as she steered too close to Hurricane Joaquin? This is an examination of a tragedy that has been well-researched and investigated - heroically so at times - by the United States Coast Guard and the National Transportation Safety Board. Three very well-done books have been published. All of these efforts produced detailed recommendations and observations and all are publicly available. I commend them to you.  My effort touches on the broad sweep and events of the tragedy and investigation, but if you want the detailed story of the final voyage of the ship, you’re better off with the other books. My main goal here is to show how the SS El Faro fit into a larger system and culture - one that I have been covering off and on as a journalist and author for 38 years.  It’s this system, I feel, that will result in another SS El Faro someday unless it is reformed.  Another note on style. My preference in non-fiction is “narrative.” In other words, whenever I can, I tell a story and show what is happening; I prefer that to “telling” the reader, because I think “showing” is more readily absorbed. Humans learn through stories. Storytelling rather than a lecture better illustrates the emotions at play here, as well as the moods, culture, and vibe of the ship and the industry. This does not mean I take a pure poetic license. The dialogue quoted here is real, not made up. The material is factual.

Data Science from Scratch

Summary

Do you want to know all about data science? Do you really want to understand why it is the future in all the most demanding job? Over the last few years, data science has changed the concept of technology. It is adding value to every model of business by using deep learning and statistics. Technological benefits of data science cannot also be ignored. The demand for data science is increasing rapidly. The basic reason behind this is the massive boom in the data generated and retained by the companies. Also known as “big data”, data scientists make the best use of this available information and figure out their best use. The team of data scientists also help in generating a good amount of analytics from the information available. This information brings clarity to people on how to interact with the web and are the foundations on which most of the critical business strategies rest. The demand for the data scientists is gradually increasing and so there must be proper learning resources for them to cultivate their knowledge. A data scientist has the following tasks to do:  Analyse data  Modelling/statistics  Engineering/prototyping  A lot of data is available in every organization. All of them are not that easy to format. A data scientist’s job mainly revolves around formatting these data, keeping in mind some set of rules. The goal of this book is simple: provide a perfect insight into data science from scratch. It clearly explains the difference between data science and big data, explaining the concept of big data very concisely and clearly. Operations on data are also very clearly explained in this audiobook. The book is also an ultimate guide to master data mining and data-analytic.

Renewable Energy

Summary

Energy is vital for a good standard of living, and much of the world's population does not have enough. Affordable and adequate sources of power that do not cause climate change or pollution are crucial; and renewables provide the answer. Wind and solar farms can now provide the cheapest electricity in many parts of the world. Moreover, they could provide all of the world's energy needs. But while market forces are fast helping the transition from fossil fuels to renewables, there are opposing pressures, such as the USA's proposed withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, and the vested interests in fossil fuels.   This Very Short Introduction describes the main renewable sources of energy-solar, wind, hydropower, and biomass-as well as the less well-developed ones-geothermal, tidal, and wave. Nick Jelley explains the challenges of integrating renewables into electricity grids, and the need for energy storage and for clean heat; and discusses the opportunities in developing countries for renewable energy to empower millions.  He also considers international efforts and policies to support renewables and tackle climate change; and explains recent innovations in wind and solar energy production, battery storage, and in the emerging power-to-gas provision for clean heating.

Agile Project Management

Summary

If you want to understand the benefits of Agile Project Management, then keep reading Over the last decade and a half, agile project management has surged in popularity across the globe. Organizations of all types and sizes have leveraged agile with enviable results. Agile project management is a flexible, responsive, and powerful tool for a project manager's toolkit. As a project manager, you know that agile will deliver tremendous organizational benefits, but do you know enough about agile to reap the rewards? When it comes to software development, Agile Project Management: An Easy Step by Step Handbook to Learn Agile Project Management and Make Innovative Products is a book that makes your journey of software design or development easier. This is a book that shows the basic and simple principles, control tools, techniques methodology and processes of agile project management to ensure that your project is successful.  It reflects the progress and refinement of agile methods from its initiation to the present state. Agile project management offers a practical context for understanding and applying the agile techniques, moving from theory into actual practical experience. Agile project management enables developers to complete and implement projects more quickly. Why is agile project management? Software development methodologies have advanced since business requirements became more demanding. With the fast pace of business change in the 21st century many projects need to be sure they will deliver something that meets client needs at the end of the project and not expend wasted effort refining requirements that will be out of date by the time the end-product is delivered.  Even in business environments that do not change rapidly it can be difficult to fully articulate requirements without seeing a tangible product first so there is still the risk of delivering something that doesn't quite meet the client's needs. That is why agile is becoming increasingly necessary for many different types of projects. Agile development focuses majorly on adding value to customers. Open and study this book and find out: The origins of agile: how a group of 17 software professionals at a 2001 conference in Chicago gave birth to the world's most iconic system of project management Why agile project management techniques works better than the historical traditional project management model. The multiples and various uses of agile project management The basic steps for putting agile into action. Not just productivity and product quality but also maintaining a good working environment. Problem solving techniques and strategies in Agile Project Management. How, where and why of successful implementation. Even if you don’t know a thing about the Agile project management method, you can learn by just reading this book and applying the principles written in the book.

Artificial Intelligence Business Applications

Summary

Transistors can switch the flow of electricity, amplify it, and that’s pretty much it. Logic gates form the basis for computer programs, which are just a series of ones and zeros. How then can these simple switches of electricity create intelligent behavior?

Artificial intelligence is very different from human intelligence. The primary unit of thinking in the human brain is thought to be a neuron, while in the computer, you have a central processing unit (CPU) that performs calculations. The smallest unit of a CPU is a transistor, an electronic component that makes up logic gates. These are the equivalent of neurons for computers, but they don’t do very much.

This audiobook is designed to teach you the absolute basics of artificial intelligence (AI) and how it is used today. It has been written assuming that the listener has zero experience in the field of AI, computer science, or math. As such, many of the concepts are easy to follow and understand.

When we say artificial intelligence, we generally mean one of two things. The first is narrow or specific AI that allows a computer to solve complex problems well but not much of anything else. The other is the type of intelligence that would allow a computer to think as we do. Artificial general intelligence (AGI) is what researchers consider the "holy grail" of AI research. A machine that has artificial general intelligence can think on levels comparable to a human.

The field of general AI remains an academic pursuit with little to no business applications whatsoever. So far, nobody has figured out how to bring about general intelligence in computers. Researchers who work in this space are less concerned with teaching computers how to drive cars and more interested in studying the nature of intelligence. Many of them study the development of intelligence in human beings from the gestation period to childhood and beyond.

Here is a preview of what you will learn....

How artificial intelligence implementation can transform your business 

The correct mindset for social media marketing 

The era of chatbots and autoresponders

How artificial intelligence can help with recruitment

Which platforms best fit your business in 2020

Predicting consumer behavior patterns with AI

Why Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles Are the Best Type of Vehicles, Why Natural Gas Vehicles Do Not Warrant the Cost, Why Electric Cars Do Not Warrant the Cost, and Problems with Buying Electric Cars

Summary

This essay sheds light on why plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are the best type of vehicles and elucidates why natural gas vehicles do not warrant the cost. Moreover, why electric cars do not warrant the cost is delineated and the ample problems with buying an electric vehicle are explicated in this essay. Furthermore, the criteria for how to determine if buying a car is worth the investment is demystified and how to earn substantial money online so that you can afford to finance your plug-in hybrid electric vehicle purchase is expounded upon in this essay.  While it may seem far-fetched, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are the utmost best type of vehicles available for sale on the car market in the digital era. Succinctly stated, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are the utmost best type of vehicles since they can operate off electric power or gasoline, unlike other types of vehicles. “The reason that hybrid vehicles are more efficient than conventional gasoline-only vehicles is because they have the ability to ‘reclaim’ energy that was once wasted, for example, the energy used when braking” (“Plug In Hybrid” 2012). Regenerative braking for instance allows plug-in hybrid electric vehicles to partially recharge their battery pack. Regenerative braking can be exhibited en route and helps prolong the vehicle’s driving duration before the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle becomes rendered inoperable. In stark contrast to a typical hybrid vehicle, the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle has the highly pragmatic ability to be recharged “by connecting it to a wall outlet in your home or elsewhere” (“Plug In Hybrid” 2012). More customers are beginning to take heed of the possibility of procuring a plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. It is far more affordable to operate a car off of wattage as opposed to gasoline. Customers can even convert their existing hybrid vehicles into plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. This process involves going to an auto body shop so that vehicular modifications can allow their hybrid vehicle to be able to recharged when connected into “a wall outlet in your home or elsewhere” (“Plug In Hybrid” 2012).

Cover art for Ethanol Fuel: Learn to Make and Use Ethanol to Power Your Vehicles

Ethanol Fuel: Learn to Make and Use Ethanol to Power Your Vehicles

Summary

There is a lot of different fuel you can make and use, but the fact that you are here reveals your interest in ethanol as a fuel. In the world today, petroleum, solar, and biodiesel are the common fuels people use today. Others may be considering ethanol because of its benefit to replace other fuel in cars, generators, tractor, or to power farm equipment or homes. The majority of people who listen to this book to the end will likely have learned a lot about ethanol, such as the history of ethanol, how to produce ethanol at home, uses of ethanol, application of ethanol, and so on. Ethanol has a long history, certainly as a beverage but also as a fuel which only comes to use in the 19th century for lighting. The path of ethanol from a light source to fuel, an additive for pure air testing and bridging technology enable us to move into an oil-free era which is exciting. The story is full of political issues, the effects of wars, industrial espionage, and the pure energy of a popular movement. The most important story, however, is the fact that a full litany of common carbohydrates, not just food crops, but also agricultural slaughter, food waste, and plants that are normally bothersome, can actually become a viable fuel that is effectively distributed or produced.  According to the approach adopted for the production of ethanol, it is entirely possible to maintain a fully autonomous, self-sustaining, and environmentally responsible operation that produces not only fuel but also valuable by-products that can be sold, replaced, or recycled. In this way, ethanol has real advantages over other renewable fuels because it does not need many processes. Releasing unpredictable changes in traditional commodity markets can be a real advantage in long-term planning, insurance, and peace of mind.

EMP: Electromagnetic Pulse: Prepping for Tomorrow Series

Summary

The clock is ticking. One second after. One year after. How will America survive a complete collapse of our critical infrastructure following an EMP attack? One of the threats facing our nation is the use of an EMP weapon to cause a grid down scenario. There are many bad actors on the international stage capable of terrorism on a massive scale. The list is long, including Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, Syria and now terrorist groups like ISIS. Each is capable of wreaking havoc in the US by shutting down our power grid through the use of an EMP, and enjoying the resulting chaos. Is America's crumbling infrastructure our Achilles Heel? Is our dependence on electricity so ingrained in our society that it reveals a soft underbelly - our weakness? EMP: Electromagnetic Pulse is a primer on the threats we face as a nation from the bad actors mentioned above. It explores the history of electromagnetic pulse technology, and discusses its use for both military and non-military purposes. This book is intended to remind us how dependent we are on a handful of electronics - computers, vehicles, and communications. Learn what a single act of terrorism using an electromagnetic pulse weapon would have on everyday life. A detailed analysis is provided of the top 12 critical infrastructure elements that would be incapacitated by an electromagnetic pulse weapon. Finally, the all-important issue of prepping will be addressed. How do you prepare for a collapsed power grid?

AI Supremacy: Winning in the Era of Machine Learning

Summary

Artificial intelligence (AI) is having a profound impact on individuals, businesses, and governments, but what is required to get ahead and stay ahead of the AI curve is not well understood. AI Supremacy is a comprehensive guide to AI's impact on a societal and global level and provides a vision for how AI and machine learning will likely influence the way business is done, societies function, and governments interact in the future.  Daniel Wagner, a thought leader in risk management and current affairs, and Keith Furst, an expert in data management and financial crimes, have crafted an insightful, entertaining, and unique audiobook that takes listeners on a wild ride through the canyons and valleys of AI to examine many of its most important subtopics. From globalization to jobs, financial services to the role of governments, the nexus with cyber risk to spying, and from China's quest to international relations, the authors have delved deeply into the subject matter.  The race for AI supremacy is about more than establishing a competitive position in the global marketplace for innovative applications and technological prowess - it is about anticipation, adopting the right mind-set, and having the right resources, a futuristic orientation, and the ability to execute. While few organizations and governments have achieved the right mix to lead in the race for AI supremacy, those that have already possess a substantial lead. Those that have not are simply falling further and further behind.  Can those that are not already in the race get in the race with any realistic hope of catching up? Can those who are already in the race ever catch up with the leaders? Who will win in the end? Should AI be feared or embraced?  These are among the many questions Wagner and Furst explore in this enticing audiobook.

Summary

The resurgence of the electric car in modern life is a tale of adventurers, men and women who bucked the complete dominance of the fossil-fueled car to seek something cleaner, simpler and cheaper. Award-winning former Wall Street Journal reporter John Fialka documents the early days of the electric car, from the MIT/Caltech race between prototypes in the summer of 1968 to the 1987 victory of the Sunraycer in the world's first race featuring solar-powered cars. Thirty years later the electric has captured the imagination and pocketbooks of American consumers. Organizations like the US Department of Energy and the state of California, along with companies from the old guard of General Motors and Toyota as well as upstart young players like Tesla Motors and Elon Musk, have embraced the once-extinct technology. The electric car has steadily gained traction in the US and around the world. We are watching the start of a trillion-dollar, worldwide race to see who will dominate one of the biggest commercial upheavals of the 21st century.

Summary

"This is the kind of case the Board has never had to deal with - a head-on collision between the credibility of a flight crew versus the airworthiness of the aircraft." - NTSB Investigator-in-Charge Leslie Dean Kampschror. On April 4, 1979, a Boeing 727 with 82 passengers and a crew of seven rolled over and plummeted from an altitude of 39,000 feet to within seconds of crashing, were it not for the crew's actions to save the plane. The cause of the unexplained dive was the subject of one of the longest NTSB investigations at that time. While the crew's efforts to save TWA 841 were initially hailed as heroic, that all changed when safety inspectors found 21 minutes of the 30-minute cockpit voice recorder tape blank. The captain of the flight, Harvey "Hoot" Gibson, subsequently came under suspicion for deliberately erasing the tape in an effort to hide incriminating evidence. The voice recorder was never evaluated for any deficiencies. From that moment on, the investigation was focused on the crew to the exclusion of all other evidence. It was an investigation based on rumors, innuendos, and speculation. Eventually the NTSB, despite sworn testimony to the contrary, blamed the crew for the incident by having improperly manipulated the controls, leading to the dive. This is the story of an NTSB investigation gone awry, and one pilot's decades-long battle to clear his name.

Door to Door

Summary

The Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of Garbology explores the hidden and costly wonders of our buy-it-now, get-it-today world of transportation, revealing the surprising truths, mounting challenges, and logistical magic behind every trip we take and every click we make. Transportation dominates our daily existence. Thousands, even millions of miles are embedded in everything we do and touch. We live in a door-to-door universe that works so well, most Americans are scarcely aware of it. The grand ballet in which we move ourselves and our stuff is equivalent to building the Great Pyramid, the Hoover Dam, and the Empire State Building all in a day. Every day. And yet, in the one highly visible part of the transportation world - the part we drive - we suffer grinding commutes, a violent death every 15 minutes, a dire injury every 12 seconds, and crumbling infrastructure. Now, the way we move ourselves and our stuff is on the brink of great change, as a new mobility revolution upends the car culture that, for better and worse, built modern America. This unfolding revolution will disrupt lives and global trade, transforming our commutes, our vehicles, our cities, our jobs, and every aspect of culture, commerce, and the environment. We are, quite literally, at a fork in the road, though whether it will lead us to Carmageddon or Carmaheaven has yet to be determined. Using interviews, data, and deep exploration of the hidden world of ports, traffic control centers, and the research labs defining our transportation future, acclaimed journalist Edward Humes breaks down the complex movements of humans, goods, and machines as never before, from increasingly car-less citizens to the distance UPS goes to deliver a leopard-printed phone case. Tracking one day in the life of his family in Southern California, Humes uses their commutes, traffic jams, grocery stops, and online shopping excursions as a springboard to explore the paradoxes and challenges inherent in our system. He ultimately makes clear that transportation is one of the few big things we can change - our personal choices do have a profound impact, and that fork in the road is coming up fast. Door to Door is a fascinating detective story, investigating the worldwide cast of supporting characters and technologies that have enabled us to move from here to there - past, present, and future.

Summary

Like everyone else, when we think of buying used cars we despair at the thoughts of the used car gauntlet that lies ahead. There is a raft of poorly researched books out there that fail to convey their meaning and just confuse the listener even further. You are left wondering what was the point. No great secrets are revealed, instead only common knowledge is provided and in between that is simply pages of nonsensical filler. As reported by the vehicle history service provider CarFax, some 800,000 vehicles within the USA, as well as at the very least 500 taxis, have been title washed to hide their plagued histories. Buying Used Cars is a quality book with real life genuine knowledge that will help you by demystifying many aspects of the buying process.

Why Electric Cars Do Not Warrant the Investment, the Problems with Buying an Electric Vehicle, and the Criteria for How to Determine If a Car Is Worth the Investment, and How to Earn Substantial Money

Summary

This essay sheds light on why why electric cars do not warrant the investment and also elucidates the problems with buying an electric vehicle. Moreover, the criteria for how to determine if a car is worth the investment is delineated in this essay. Furthermore, how to earn substantial money online so that you afford to finance your electric vehicle is expounded upon in this essay. In spite of their touted merits, electric cars unequivocally do not warrant the investment. Even though electric cars operate more efficiently than natural gas vehicles and can therefore save you money on fuel costs and vehicle maintenance services, these vehicle running costs savings reaped over the course of ample years will not be substantial enough to even offset 50 percent of the exorbitant premium paid upfront to procure the electric vehicle over a natural gas vehicle. Electric vehicles tend to rapidly depreciate in value and are therefore not a prudent investment in your future. Moreover, charging times for an electric vehicle are long, electricity prices are on the rise, the lithium-ion battery in electric vehicles is deemed a potential fire hazard, and there is a lack of electric vehicle service centers which ultimately means that there are an abject lack of technicians who are competent in servicing electrical vehicles. Even though the cost of operating an electric vehicle if you already paid for it in full would be roughly one third of the cost of operating a natural gas vehicle, these savings reaped overtime on vehicle running costs, such as vehicle maintenance costs and fuel costs, do not offset the premium of $20,000-$50,000 exhausted upfront to procure an electric vehicle over a natural gas vehicle. “The average cost of an electric vehicle is $55,000 while the average cost of a gasoline-powered four-door sedan is $35,000. Even though the engine of an electric vehicle has less moving parts, such as fan belts and spark plugs, which saves you money on replacement parts and service costs every year, the average yearly savings in maintenance for an electric vehicle owner is only approximately $800 a year” (Electric Cars VS) "even though you may have to pay a premium of at least $20,000 upfront to procure an electric vehicle over a natural gas vehicle. As per operating costs to drive the vehicle, “the breakdown for a gas-powered car VS an electric car comes out to be $9.83 per 100 miles for a gas car and $5.27 per 100 miles for an electric vehicle. When directly compared, the cost to power an electric vehicle is about half of what it costs to fuel your gas-powered car. It is important to note that pricing for power varies depending on your utility company and how they charge for power. For example, some utility companies charge higher Time-Of-Use (TOU) rates for things like :peak hour usage", where the price of power is higher between 4 pm and 9 pm (“Electric Cars VS,”). While this may seem enticing to be able to save on fuel costs by owning an electric vehicle, you will not drive your electric vehicle enough to defray the $20,000 premium paid to procure it over a natural gas vehicle by saving on fuel costs and vehicle maintenance costs. Much to the chagrin of electric vehicle owners, electric vehicles are not the most economical vehicles to own. “Owning and operating a new vehicle in 2017 costed a driver an average of $8,469 annually, or $706 each month, according to a new study from AAA. The annual evaluation of driving costs reveals that small sedans are the least expensive vehicles to drive at $6,354 annually, followed by small SUVs at $7,606 annually, and hybrids at $7,687 annually. New to the Your Driving Costs study in 2017, AAA found that electric vehicles have driving costs at $8,439 per year. Without a gasoline engine to maintain, electric vehicles have the lowest annual maintenance and repair costs, at $982 per year.

How to Become a Truck Driver

Summary

About the author: I have been driving a truck full time for over four years at the time of this publishing. I have been a company driver for three of those years, and an owner/operator for a bit over one. In the four-plus years that I've been driving, I have spent one year driving most of the lower 48 states. I haven't made it up to North Carolina or a few other states in the northeast, but all of the others I have. For the last two years, I have been truck driving with my team from Los Angeles to the Kansas City area and back. We did that twice a week. After doing that for about a year, I was able to get a driving position working nights and being home every day. I did that for almost year. I left there because the company did a pathetic job of maintaining their equipment. I was afraid of getting stopped by law enforcement. So I left them and got my own truck to take care of. Now I am contracted with a carrier to move their freight and it works out a lot better. Let's talk about the money. Most truck drivers can expect to earn $30,000-$40,000 in their first year. I know some drivers who work as solo drivers and decide to give up their apartments so they can stay in the truck all year long and save money. They still take days off from time to time and stay with friends, family, or rent a hotel for a few days so they can take a break. Once you have six months experience, you may be able to find a job that pays more money. I've seen motivated drivers earning in the $60,000 range in their first year. The money is there to earn if you look for it. Too many drivers get complacent and they stay with the same company, in the same position, making low wages for years and years. Sometimes all you need to do to increase your income is switch positions within the company. If the company you work for doesn't offer anything that will take you to the next level then find another company that will.

Summary

When you’re standing on the edge of the abyss, health failing, the idea of being sliced open down the middle for heart surgery may not seem terribly appealing, but most people agree that it’s probably preferable to the alternative. Despite a lifetime of healthy outdoor activity and a diet no worse (or better, for that matter) than the next man’s, in 2017, at the age of 66, Nick found himself under the knife for triple bypass surgery. Would this be the end to hiking adventures and long motorcycle trips to remote parts? Not a chance! Recovery from open heart surgery is a long, slow process. But with plenty of help, some dedication, lots of careful walking, and heaps of good luck, it is possible to return to a fully active life.  Although the first part of this book describes Nick’s experiences with CABG (coronary artery bypass graft) and his eventual return to doing those things he loves, it is also a motorcycle and hiking travel book. The later chapters describe some of his explorations in Canada and the UK and adventures in motorcycling since his recovery.  If you are having, or have just had CABG, hold on to the belief that there is light at the end of the tunnel. And when you are able to return to the activities you enjoy, they will seem more worthwhile and precious than before.

How Autonomous Vehicles Will Change the World

Summary

Would you like to know how you'll be getting around town, playing, and working in the future? At the 2017 World Government Summit, Tesla founder Elon Musk proclaimed: "In 10 years, it will be very unusual for cars to be built that are not fully autonomous." Take a look at the vehicle sitting in your driveway. It may be the last one you ever own. With an estimated 33 million fully autonomous cars and taxis projected to hit the road by 2040, an automotive renaissance is soon to be upon us. Personal car ownership currently costs the average sedan owner $9,000 annually. But car ownership may soon be a thing of the past. Autonomous vehicles will be the most disruptive technology ever deployed by mankind. They'll change the way we eat, cook, and shop. They'll change the way we raise our children and the way we choose our spouses. They'll change the way we display our wealth and status. They'll change the way we build cities and design our homes. They'll change the way we dispense charity and the way we think about work. And, most importantly, they'll change the way that we think about each other and the way we see ourselves. Since 1900, 3.7 million Americans have died in motor vehicle accidents (about 35,000 per year). But we will soon exit these "dark ages" of transportation. Thanks to several recent breakthroughs in artificial intelligence, we are about to usher in a new age - one in which auto collisions, traffic jams, and road fatalities almost never happen. Soon, autonomous vehicles (of all shapes and sizes) will roam the city streets - delivering your pizza, dropping off your latest order from Amazon, and safely driving your children to school - under the watchful guidance of a dozen digital sensors. We're about to embark on a fantastic voyage. A journey that will bring about a new age of technological enlightenment, with the potential to produce a world of great abundance - if we can avoid screwing it all up. In this book, we'll talk about the many potholes that lie on the road to the future. And we'll discuss how you can be economically prepared for the transportation revolution that is currently underway. Ready to learn more? If you'd like to know what the future has in store for you, then get the audiobook today!

A Captain's Duty

2 ratings

Summary

"I share the country's admiration for the bravery of Captain Phillips and his selfless concern for his crew. His courage is a model for all Americans."President Barack Obama It was just another day on the job for 53-year-old Richard Phillips, captain of the Maersk Alabama, a United States-flagged cargo ship that was carrying, among other things, food and agricultural materials for the World Food Program. That all changed when armed Somali pirates boarded the ship. The pirates didn't expect the crew to fight back, nor did they expect Captain Phillips to offer himself as a hostage in exchange for the safety of his crew. Thus began the tense five-day standoff, which ended in a daring high-seas rescue when U.S. Navy SEALs opened fire and picked off three of the captors. "It never ends like this," Captain Phillips said. And he's right. A story of adventure and courage, A Captain's Duty provides the intimate details of this high-seas hostage-taking - the unbearable heat, the death threats, the mock executions, and the escape attempt. When the pirates boarded his ship, Captain Phillips put his experience into action, doing everything he could to safeguard his crew. And when he was held captive by the pirates, he marshaled all his resources to ensure his own survival, withstanding intense physical hardship and an escalating battle of wills with the pirates. This was it: the moment where training meets instinct and where character is everything. Richard Phillips was ready.

Robots

Summary

Robots are entering the mainstream. Technologies have advanced to the point of mass commercialization - Roomba, for example - and adoption by governments - most notably, their use of drones. Meanwhile, these devices are being received by a public whose main sources of information about robots are the fantasies of popular culture. We know a lot about C-3PO and Robocop, but not much about Atlas, Motoman, Kiva, or Beam - real-life robots that are reinventing warfare, the industrial workplace, and collaboration. In this book, technology analyst John Jordan offers an accessible and engaging introduction to robots and robotics, covering state-of-the-art applications, economic implications, and cultural context. Jordan chronicles the prehistory of robots and the treatment of robots in science fiction, movies, and television - from the outsized influence of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein to Isaac Asimov's I, Robot (in which Asimov coined the term "robotics"). He offers a guided tour of robotics today, describing the components of robots, the complicating factors that make robotics so challenging, and such applications as driverless cars, unmanned warfare, and robots on the assembly line. Roboticists draw on such technical fields as power management, materials science, and artificial intelligence. Jordan points out, however, that robotics design decisions also embody such nontechnical elements as value judgments, professional aspirations, and ethical assumptions, and raise questions that involve law, belief, economics, education, public safety, and human identity. Robots will be neither our slaves nor our overlords; instead, they are rapidly becoming our close companions, working in partnership with us - whether in a factory, on a highway, or as a prosthetic device. Given these profound changes to human work and life, Jordan argues that robotics is too important to be left solely to roboticists.

Why Planes Crash Case Files: 2001

Summary

Air travel is one of the safest modes of travel when we take into account the distances and freedom that it allows us. And yet, we still remain obsessed with aviation disasters. What caused these accidents? Whose fault was it? In her series of books, Why Planes Crash, Sylvia Wrigley investigates the worst aviation disasters of the 21st century. Why Planes Crash Case Files: 2001 is the first of the series. Wrigley has put together 11 of the most interesting incidents that the world saw in the year 2001. These include detailed analysis of the disastrous runway incursion at Linate, the background story to the Avjet Aspen Crash, and why an Airbus A300 disintegrated over Queens. From bad weather to the engineering faults in the aircraft, the author critically looks into each factor that might have lead to the crash. Her investigations and deep insight compiled thoughtfully in this audiobook make it so interesting that you actually start feeling like a witness to the disaster, and yet it is comprehensive enough for anyone with no aviation knowledge to understand. "For those aviation enthusiasts that wish to delve beyond the sensationalist headlines on aviation accidents Sylvia Spruck Wrigley's 'Why Planes Crash' will satisfy their needs. Informative, critical and insightful." - Hal Stoen, Stoenworks Aviation "The author has done a remarkable job in not only researching the evidence of the accidents she covers and in putting across the problems of an investigation, but she has managed to do this in a way that will interest and appeal to a wide range of readers." - John Farley Obe, author of View from the Hover

Crash Course

1 rating

Summary

This is the epic saga of the American automobile industry's rise and demise, a compelling story of hubris, denial, missed opportunities, and self-inflicted wounds that culminates with the president of the United States ushering two of Detroit's Big Three car companies - once proud symbols of prosperity - through bankruptcy. The cost to American taxpayers topped $100 billion - enough to buy every car and truck sold in America in the first half of 2009. With unprecedented access, Pulitzer Prize-winner Paul Ingrassia takes us from factory floors to small-town dealerships to Detroit's boardrooms to the inner sanctums of the White House. He reveals why President Barack Obama personally decided to save Chrysler when many of his advisors opposed the idea. Ingrassia provides the dramatic story behind Obama's dismissal of General Motors CEO Rick Wagoner and the angry reaction from GM's board - the same people who had watched idly while the company plunged into penury. In Crash Course, Ingrassia answers the big questions: Was Detroit's self-destruction inevitable? What were the key turning points? Why did Japanese automakers manage American workers better than the American companies themselves? Ingrassia also describes dysfunctional corporate cultures (even as GM's market share plunged, the company continued business as usual) and Detroit's perverse system of "inverse layoffs" (which allowed union members to invoke seniority to avoid work). Along the way, we meet Detroit's frustrated reformers and witness the wrenching decisions that Ford executives had to make to avoid GM's fate. Informed by Ingrassia's 25 years of experience covering the auto industry for the Wall Street Journal, and showing an appreciation for Detroit's profound influence on our country's society and culture, Crash Course is a uniquely American and deeply instructive story, one not to be missed.

Driven

Summary

Alex Davies tells the dramatic, colorful story of the quest to develop driverless cars - and the fierce competition between Google, Uber, and other companies in a race to revolutionize our lives. The self-driving car has been one of the most vaunted technological breakthroughs of recent years. But early promises that these autonomous vehicles would soon be on the roads have proven premature. Alex Davies follows the twists and turns of this story from its origins to today.  The story starts with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which was charged with developing a land-based equivalent to the drone, a vehicle that could operate in war zones without risking human lives. DARPA issued a series of three “Grand Challenges” that attracted visionaries, many of them students and amateurs, who took the technology from Jetsons-style fantasy to near-reality. The young stars of the Challenges soon connected with Silicon Valley giants Google and Uber, intent on delivering a new way of driving to the civilian world. Soon the automakers joined the quest, some on their own, others in partnership with the tech titans. But as road testing progressed, it became clear that the challenges of driving a car without human assistance were more formidable than anticipated. Davies profiles the industry’s key players from the early enthusiasm of the DARPA days to their growing awareness that while this spin on artificial intelligence isn’t yet ready for rush-hour traffic, driverless cars are poised to remake how the world moves. Driven explores this exciting quest to transform transportation and change our lives.

Manifesto: A Revolutionary Approach to General Aviation Maintenance

1 rating

Summary

There’s a dirty little secret about aviation maintenance: It often breaks aircraft instead of fixing them. Manifesto is the much-anticipated first audiobook from renowned aviation columnist and speaker Mike Busch. Written in typical no-nonsense style, it lays out the basis of Mike's “minimalist” maintenance philosophy for owner-flown general aviation aircraft. An owner who follows the audiobook's guidance can save a small fortune on maintenance costs and end up with a safer, more reliable aircraft. Owners are advised to perform the absolute least amount of maintenance required to make their aircraft safe, reliable and legal...and nothing more. The audiobook explains in detail why engine and propeller TBOs and most other manufacturer-prescribed maintenance intervals should be disregarded. And Manifesto explains exactly how to do it. About the author: Mike Busch is arguably the best-known A&P/IA in general aviation. In 2008, he was honored by the FAA as “National Aviation Maintenance Technician of the Year”. Mike has been a prolific aviation writer for more than four decades. His “Savvy Aviator” columns have appeared in numerous publications including AOPA Pilot (where he writes the monthly "Savvy Maintenance" column), EAA Sport Aviation, AVweb, and magazines for the three largest GA type clubs (ABS, CPA, and COPA). He is renowned for his free monthly maintenance webinars and his standing-room-only forums at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. Mike has been a pilot and aircraft owner for more than 50 years with 8,000+ hours logged, and he is a CFIA/I/ME. He’s founder and CEO of Savvy Aviation, Inc., the world’s largest firm providing maintenance-management services for owner-flown aircraft.

Fast Charge

Summary

Explore how disruptive technologies are driving a giant leap in the car business. There is a revolution launching in the automotive industry, the leap to electrification.The future of transportation combines three industries: energy, communications, and transportation into one smart infrastructure as the EV fast charge station. Once separate industries, energy, communications, and transportation, are now coming together to form an integrated, efficient, high performance transportation platform which will unleash the EV and obsolete the internal combustion engine with charge at your destination. There are over one billion cars on the roads worldwide, nearly all of them, at the time of this writing, powered with gasoline piston engines. Over the next 60 months the ratio of electric vehicles over gasoline engines for new cars sales will grow from single digits to a majority market share - displacing the gasoline piston engine. All driven by fast charge where you park. As electric car sales quickly accelerate the market opportunities are worth trillions of dollars over the next decade, a fact not lost on the car companies. The auto manufacturers are prepared for this rapid market displacement from gasoline to electric - the oil industry is not. The DC fast charge station and the ability to bring diverse networks together for seamless transactions, communications, advertising, and fast charging where you park, lays the groundwork for the revolution now undergoing the transportation industry worldwide. Every major car manufacturer is poised for this market. The infrastructure for fast charging EVs represents a large opportunity for those who take advantage of this moment in time with the automobile industry long wed to oil-based fuels, as it leaps to electric drive. Consumers are driven by desire. Power, performance, increased range, and decreased costs are powerful incentives especially when you throw in outright beauty and design in the modern EV. All of these disruptive technological waves are meeting in a historic convergence which will see the transition from piston internal combustion engines and their associated toxicity to electrification with decreasing toxicity. The modern electric car with the new batteries onboard, and onsite at the parking spaces for fast charging, will propel the automotive industry worldwide into this new era. It is a changing of the guard. An era of increased freedom, performance, and availability coupled with decreased toxicity and cost are coming together to issue a new age for transportation: electrification. Explore the electric car as fast charge obsoletes the traditional gasoline station with charge where you park.

Martin Ford's Rise of the Robots: Technology and the Threat of a Jobless Future Summary

Summary

This is a summary of the original book Rise of the Robots by Martin Ford. What are the jobs of the future? How many will there be? And who will have them? We might imagine - and hope - that today's industrial revolution will unfold like the last: even as some jobs are eliminated, more will be created to deal with the new innovations of a new era. In Rise of the Robots, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Martin Ford argues that this is absolutely not the case. As technology continues to accelerate and machines begin taking care of themselves, fewer people will be necessary. Artificial intelligence is already well on its way to making "good jobs" obsolete: many paralegals, journalists, office workers, and even computer programmers are poised to be replaced by robots and smart software. As progress continues, blue and white collar jobs alike will evaporate, squeezing working- and middle-class families ever further. At the same time, households are under assault from exploding costs, especially from the two major industries - education and health care - that, so far, have not been transformed by information technology. The result could well be massive unemployment and inequality as well as the implosion of the consumer economy itself. In Rise of the Robots, Ford details what machine intelligence and robotics can accomplish, and implores employers, scholars, and policy makers alike to face the implications. The past solutions to technological disruption, especially more training and education, aren't going to work, and we must decide, now, whether the future will see broad-based prosperity or catastrophic levels of inequality and economic insecurity. Rise of the Robots is essential listening for anyone who wants to understand what accelerating technology means for their own economic prospects - not to mention those of their children - as well as for society as a whole.

Atomic Geography

Summary

Perhaps the first environmental engineer at Hanford, Melvin R. Adams spent 24 years on its 586 square miles of desert terrain. His thoughtful vignettes recall challenges and sites he worked on or found personally intriguing - like the 216-U-pond, contaminated with plutonium longer than any other place in the world. In what Adams considers his most successful project, he helped determine the initial scope of the soil and solid waste cleanup. His group also designed and tested a marked, maintenance-free disposal barrier, expanded a network of groundwater monitoring wells, and developed a pilot scale pump and treatment plant. Adams shares his perspective on leaking high-level waste storage tanks, dosimeters, and Hanford's obsession with safety. He even answers his least favorite question, insisting he does not glow in the dark. He leaves that unique ability to spent fuel rods in water storage basins - a phenomenon known as Cherenkov radiation. The book is published by Washington State University Press.

Southern Storm

Summary

On the afternoon of April 4, 1977, Georgia housewife Sadie Burkhalter Hurst looked out her front door to see a frantic stranger running toward her, his clothes ablaze, and, behind him, the mangled fuselage of a passenger plane that had just crashed in her yard. The plane, a Southern Airways DC-9-31, had been carrying 81 passengers and four crew members en route to Atlanta when it entered a massive thunderstorm cell that turned into a dangerous cocktail of rain, hail, and lightning. Forced down onto a highway, the plane cut a swath of devastation through the small town of New Hope, breaking apart and killing bystanders on the ground before coming to rest in Hurst's front yard. Ultimately, only 22 people survived, and urgent questions immediately arose: What caused the pilots to fly into the storm instead of away from it? Could the crash have been prevented? Southern Storm addresses these issues and more, offering an insider's look at this disaster and the systemic overhauls that followed it.

Scooters

Summary

Are you absolutely disgusted with the high price of gas and have you decided that enough is enough? Good! That means you finally may be ready to do something about it! Okay, okay. Hard talk makes us "feel" better for about a second or two. What can we really do about it? Truth be told there really isn't much any of us can do about the stranglehold that we are all caught in. Sadly, we have created this problem and there just isn't any easy way out. None of us actually have any sway whatsoever over what that barrel of gas is going cost tomorrow. However, there is something each of us can do to improve our own personal situation. So what's the big deal? Buy yourself a scooter! Huh? Yep, it's got to be the cheapest form of motorized transportation available and it runs for pennies compared to your SUV. Listen up. We aren't talking about dressing up in your old ragtag clothes. We aren't asking you to pour your middle-age body into a pair of leathers three sizes to small and sprouting a helmet that would make any Viking proud. Our friends across the pond probably can't quite figure out what we are screaming about. Visit many of our European friends and you'll find trim and colorful scooters in all shapes and sizes zipping all over the place. This may be an alternative form of transportation considering the current energy crunch. Do the math. What if you could adjust your behavior slightly to include driving a scooter to work and saving the SUV for the family and weekends? If you are "feeling the pain" at the gas pumps, this is a viable alternative. But first ask yourself if you are mad enough to take action. Are you ready to do something about it? If you are then it's time to do your homework.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

Summary

On March 8, 2014, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 loaded 239 people onboard and took off for what should have been a six-hour flight. It never made it - and it's still missing. It's been a year since Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 vanished, and there's still no sign of the aircraft, its passengers, or its crew nor confirmation of what happened or where the aircraft resides. In this gripping investigation of the events that led to the plane's disappearance and why they could happen again, CNN aviation analyst David Soucie exposes the flaws in the aviation industry, shares what needs to be done so a plane doesn't go missing again, and uses a Bayesian analysis model to reveal what most likely happened onboard the plane that led to its downfall. Comprehensive in scope, personal and empathetic in voice, Soucie draws on his 30 years of experience as an accident investigator working with the Federal Aviation Administration. He allows you to put the wild speculation about the plane's disappearance aside and assess the facts through the eyes of an experienced accident investigator. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Summary

The gripping true tale of a devastating plane crash, the investigation into its causes, and the race to prevent similar disasters in the future.  On July 25, 2000, a Concorde, the world's fastest passenger plane, was taking off from Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris when it suddenly burst into flames. An airliner capable of flying at more than twice the speed of sound, the Concorde had completed 25 years of successful flights, whisking wealthy passengers - from diplomats to rock stars to corporate titans - between continents on brief and glamorous flights. Yet on this fateful day, the chartered Concorde jet, en route to America, crashed and killed all 109 passengers and crew onboard and four people on the ground. Urgent questions immediately arose as investigators scrambled to discover what had gone wrong. What caused the fire? Could it have been prevented? And, most urgently, was the Concorde safe to fly? Last Days of the Concorde addresses these issues and many more, offering a fascinating insider's look at the dramatic disaster, the hunt for clues, and the systemic overhauls that followed the crash.

Summary

Somewhere deep beneath the wild seas of the southern Indian Ocean, perhaps in the eerie underwater canyons of Broken Ridge along the Seventh Arc satellite band, lies the answer to the world's greatest aviation mystery. Why, on the night of 8 March 2014, did Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 suddenly U-turn, zig-zag up the Straits of Malacca, then vanish with 239 souls on board? Was it an elaborate murder-suicide by a rogue pilot? A terrible accident such as onboard fire, rapid decompression or systems failure? A terrorist hijacking gone wrong? Or something else entirely?  Award-winning journalist Ean Higgins has led the world media's coverage of this incredible saga and draws on years of interviews with aviation experts, victims' families, air crash investigators and professional hunters across land, sea and sky to dissect the riddle of MH370's fate.
