Greasing the Wheels: Using Pork Barrel Projects to Build Majority Coalitions in Congress
Other books have documented pork barrel projects in different policy areas, but none has examined the process of using pork to buy votes for broad public policy. This book reveals how Congressional leaders and the President give pork barrel projects to Congressional members' districts to buy their votes for broad-based national legislation. It does so through interviews with key actors--who provide the basis for a rich narrative of the process of passing the bills as well as statistical analysis.

Constructor’s number 95001. May 54 Undergoing full ground-system testing at Warton. Jun 54 Dismantled and taken by road to A&AEE, Boscombe Down, Hants; re-assembled there and functional trials of aircraft and systems commenced. 2 Jul 54 First engine run 21 Jul 54 Engine runs completed. 22 Jul 54 following delays due to minor hydraulic and engine problems, ground taxi trials commenced, to check the aircraft’s braking system, tail brake -chute and nose-wheel steering. Eight such tests were satisfactorily completed by 2nd August. 24 Jul 54 On one of these high-speed tests with English Electric chief test pilot Wing Commander Roland P. Beamont at the controls, 125 kts was reached and the aircraft briefly flew for 500 yards on a straight hop. Further short down - the runway hops were also made, courtesy of the braking parachute and the length of the Boscombe Down runway2 Aug 54 Braking tests. 3 Aug 54 Initially planned date for first flight, delayed when Beamont accidentally fired off the engine bay fire extinguishers during a cockpit check. 4 Aug 54 Successful Maiden flight from Boscombe Down; pilot Roland Prosper Beamont. Taking off at 09.58 an altitude of 15000 feet and a maximum speed of 440 knots - Mach 0.85 - was reached during the 40 minute flight, shadowed by Canberra chase plane WD973. 5 Aug 54 Second flight, making handling assessments at low altitudes, though the aircraft did reach 30,000 feet. 11 Aug 54 On its third flight, lasting 50 minutes, the aircraft, flown by Beaumont, became the first British aircraft to exceed the speed of sound in level flight - Mach 1.02 - at an altitude of 30,000 feet. 13 Aug 54 Fourth flight; flew two deliberate level supersonic runs at up to Mach 1.08 at a maximum altitude of 40,000 feet. Nine further flights made before the end of August, one including a manoeuvre at supersonic speed. 15 Sep 54 Beamont displayed the aircraft for Prince Bernhardt of the Netherlands. 23 Sep 54 27th flight - Flown back to Warton for continued testing (handling and performance trials) following successful completion of the initial flight test programme. 10 Oct 54 Photographed in flight – 28 Nov 54 50th flight - reached Mach.1.22 for the second time. 11 Mar 55 To A&AEE Boscombe Down for initial assessment – 13 flights by A Squadron-40, 000 feet could be reached in four minutes, handling was easy and docile throughout the flight envelope; the ejection seat was criticized as being uncomfortable. 29 Mar 55 Returned to Warton for minor adjustments to aileron and tailplane ‘feel’. 7 Jul 55 Took part in display at Farnborough to mark the Golden Jubilee of the Royal Aircraft Establishment. 3-7 Sep 55 Loaned to English Electric to appear in SBAC show.

Giant Water Wheel
The Great Wheel, which powered the Quarry Bank Mill. It was installed in 1818 and has a diameter of 32 feet. Quarry Bank Mill was a pioneering site in Britain’s Industrial Revolution in the late 18th Century. Founded in Cheshire by Samuel Greg in 1784, the mill grew into the headquarters of one of the largest cotton manufacturing businesses in the world by the 1860s. The Greg family built a village for their workers, founding the village of Styal, and treating them to conditions that were the envy of the packed-in factory workers in the industrial conurbations of Manchester. Cotton from the slave plantations in the United States was brought to the mills of Manchester and turned into cloth, using water and steam power and machines such as the water frame, spinning mules and flying shuttles. Children as young as nine worked in the mills, spinning and weaving cotton, in hot and humid conditions and using dangerous machinery, with accidents commonplace and workers often losing limbs, or their lives. The mill was given to the National Trust in 1939 by Alexander Carlton Greg and the business closed 20 years later. Many of the machines inside still rumble into life on tours through the facility, shaking the floors and spinning and weaving cotton as they did more than a century ago. There is also access to Styal village, the garden of the estate where the Greg Family loved, and the apprentice house, which is operated as a living history site, recreating life in the 1830s.

Wine Style: Using Your Senses To Explore And Enjoy Wine (Includes Pull-Out Wine Wheel)
From the bestselling authors of Wine For Dummies, a different way to choose and enjoy wine

Because the choices in a wine store or on a wine list can seem limitless or intimidating, wine drinkers often stick with what they know, such as Merlot, or go with the choice made by a wine critic or a waiter. This appealingly straightforward and unintimidating guide will help wine drinkers discover what they like and make informed choices. The authors identify 12 wine styles, or taste categories, including four for red wine and four for white wine. For each style, the authors detail how it tastes, where it comes from, grape varieties that are common for the style, and a few recommended wines. The style "Soft, Fruity Red Wines," for instance, includes U.S. Merlots, Beaujolais, Burgundies and other Pinot Noirs, and southern Italian reds, among other wines. Complete with tips on pairing wine with food and a pull-out wine wheel to help readers remember the styles, this is the refreshingly different book wine drinkers have been waiting for.

Mary Ewing-Mulligan, Master of Wine, and Ed McCarthy, Certified Wine Instructor (New York, NY), are among the best-known, most widely respected wine experts in the United States. They have appeared frequently in the media, including on television's Food Network and CNNfn, and have written seven wine books in the For Dummies series.
