The Widening Gyre (Spenser Novels (Dell))
The adoring wife of a senatorial candidate has a smile as sweet as candy and dots her "i's" with little hearts. A blond beauty, she is the perfect mate for an ambitious politician, but she has a little problem with sex and drugs--a problem someone has managed to put on videotape.
The big boys figure a little blackmail will put her husband out of the race. Until Spenser hops on the candidate's bandwagon.
But getting back the tape of the lady's X-rated indiscretion is a nonstop express ride to trouble--trouble that is deep, wide and deadly.
"A thriller all the way." (Seattle Times)
Spailboat, inside view of mast in new rigging, with fixed pulleys, 55-60, bridles, 7, winches, 24, ball and sockets, 27, 28, and jacks, 16.
New rigging is operated by heavy duty mechanisms, like jacks, hydraulic cylinders, hydromotors and / electric motors. All driving mechanisms are located as close to deck as possible. Cars, final part: It seems clear to me, that every driver in urban traffic has to let go of the gas for making turns. Motorists then can take turns without clutching. This is possible, because of the current overcapacity of the engine contents. Third gear will stand for slow acceleration after each curve. Automatically, the motorists who want to master the double clutching, do not need to slow down, break with the right foot and are therefore able to give a bit of gas with the right foot, in the neutral position of the gear stick, in order to try to equalize the revolutions with the desired revolutions in second gear. So, with lower speeds, a lot of drivers can master the skill of driving, and those who do not want to learn, just keep on going in third gear, before, during and after the turn. Slow speeds in cities mean less breaking, and less wearing out of the clutch plates. There will be less fine particles coming from breaks. Over approximately twenty years there will be electric cars and hydrogen motors, and as the road network widens, it is possible the raise speed limit again. First of all, we need to know how to drive and that is acquiring knowledge. It is, with this knowledge in mind, very stupid to approach a curve at high speeds, without knowing what to do during the taking of the curve. Most people still break abruptly, and they forget to give a measured quantity of gas in the neutral position of the gear stick, before they shift to a lower gear. The clutch plates settle the differences between the revolutions of the engine and the revolutions of the lower gear. Not only does this show a lack of inexperience, it wears out the clutch plates. Double clutching is not easy, but doable and very desirable. Considered scientifically, it is agonizing to observe that the major part of the motorists can not see the simple fact, that it makes no sense to overtake each other during the peak hours, and that they not even know how to make a turn. Both on the freeways as in the city, the present driving behavior shows a lack of inexperience and ignorance. In the interest of the environment we must learn. Technique have to be developed, instead of bruit strength. The only solution against wasting fuel and reduction of clogging is judiciously use. International legislation prohibits the use of front spoilers on cars. This legislation is concerning mainly the safety of pedestrians and cyclists. Spoilers at the side of cars are indeed dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists. Ordinary cars are therefore not racing cars, but still the engine capacities of ordinary cars are nevertheless coupled to high speeds. At high speeds these cars with big engines stick to the roads mainly because they are heavy. It is therefore why cars are still made out off steel, in stead of light weight carbon fibers. So, for sticking to roads at high speeds cars with large engines are for this reason, heave. Look at Rolls Royce, Bentley, Jaguar, Mercedes, BMW, Volvo, the American cars etc. All very heavy. The drivers of such cars want to drive fast, and need mass for the down force. The car industry has been grafted for this reason still on the use of steel and on heavy engines. This international legislation has become obsolete, because it in fact prohibits spoilers on ordinary cars. This legislation prohibits actually the production of plastic light weight cars. If we now make a difference, between urban traffic and the use of freeways, we will see that we can make light weight plastic cars, with retractile -, and extending, spoilers. On freeways the spoilers then logically extend, while the spoilers retract once the cars leave the freeways. The cars get their down force by using the spoilers on freeways, while the cars in slow urban traffic no longer need the spoiler for down force. The spoilers are no longer necessary / needed for down force in the city and villages, and are logically retracted. Once retracted, the spoilers form no longer danger for pedestrians and cyclists. Light weight plastic cars, with also the frame made out of carbon fibers, or other high tech composites, are made for a great deal from oil. Engines in light weight plastic cars, directly consume lesser oil! Also the engines themselves can be smaller for this reason. Light weight plastic cars, with small engines and with retractable and extending spoilers, use enormously lesser fuel. Especially when these cars need to stop and to accelerate frequently in urban traffic. It is obvious that a light weight car needs far less fuel to accelerate than a heavy steel car. If we follow this line, I can still go one step further. We now presume that a lot of drivers go alone, or with two, to work. Then follows that this group is extremely suitable for using mentioned small two seated
1969 Dodge Coronet Wagon 050A1
The wagon is restored to better than new condition. I would classify it as a mild custom. This Coronet was originally a lack-luster plain jane presenting nothing but conservative function. It now has some snap... visually and performance-wise. Much of the trim is now NOS, including the grille and roof rack. Both bumpers are rechromed. The paint color is similar in hue to the original but much more vital in this 1994 version of Ford Mocha Java metallic. Small point. It's outstanding viewed in moonlight (how often do you hear anybody brag on that?!). Interior painted areas and vinyl door panels are redone in the matching tones that went with 1994 Ford products when they appeared in this Java color. Upholstery is cloth rather than the boring neutral vinyl of original issue. Upholstery colors are a ribbed burgandy brown and a design-textured blended parchment with wine red accents. Very appealing, to my standards. Carpeting is new cut pile similar in style to original. Carpet color is a coppery-burgandy-brown to compliment the seats and overall interior appearance. The whole interior package is unbelieveably better than anything Detroit ever came up with in 1969 for a mid-size vehicle. See neighboring detail photos in this stream or in my automotive set. Everything mechanical has been restored to new including a dressed-out 318 c.i.d. 4V with Edelbrock intake. The engine compartment is car-show immaculate. Rebuilt 727 automatic on the column. No AC, now or then. Dual alloy-pipe exhaust with mellow Smitty glaspaks replaces the single stock system. Drum brakes. 15" chrome Magnum 500 wheels replace the original 14" standard steel wheels. Tires are premium radials with whitewalls widened on a tire lathe. A tire lathe has a sharpened blade that evenly whittles black surface rubber off the spinning narrow whitewall area to widen it. Works best with premium radials where ample white is available under the sidewall black. Strength and durability are not affected (but routine cleaning with BlecheWhite is a good idea). All windows are roll-up except for the electric rear window. Roll them all down for perfect air conditioning. The rear wagon door opens down as a gate or swings out. The original, non-functional AM radio is still in place only to complete the look of the dash. However, the star of the show is the new sound system. AM/FM stereo-cassette radio mounted under the dash with a CD adapter and XM satellite adaptor. An amplifier and bass woofer is mounted in the rear spare tire well (the full-size spare tire/wheel is stored under the cargo area folding wood floor). Two sound box speakers rest on the cargo floor. This is a sweet ride. Modified to my personal taste. No banana yellow with screaming flames here. Setting is from a parking lot at dusk looking towards the paddlewheel of a local riverboat casino.

Widening the Circle is a passionate, even radical argument for creating school and classroom environments where all kids, including children labeled as "disabled" and "special needs," are welcome on equal terms.
In opposition to traditional models of special education, where teachers decide when a child is deemed "ready to compete" in "mainstream" classes, Mara Sapon-Shevin articulates a vision of full inclusion as a practical and moral goal. Inclusion, she argues, begins not with the assumption that students have to earn their way into the classroom with their behavior or skills, it begins with the right of every child to be in the mainstream of education, perhaps with modifications, adaptations, and support. Full inclusion requires teachers to think about all aspects of their classrooms—pedagogy, curriculum, and classroom climate.
Crucially, Sapon-Shevin takes on arguments against full inclusion in a section of straight-talking answers to common questions. She agrees with critics that the rhetoric of inclusion has been used to justify eliminating services and "dumping" students with significant educational needs unceremoniously back into the mainstream with little or no support. If full inclusion is properly implemented, however, she argues, it not only clearly benefits those traditionally excluded but enhances the educations and lives of those considered mainstream in myriad ways.
Through powerful storytelling and argument, Sapon-Shevin lays out the moral and educational case for not separating kids on the basis of difference.
