- Single coil springs that are attached to the webbing with links and then "hand tied" to each other and the frame with twine to achieve differing amounts of elasticity in the seat. Two, four, and eight way hand ties are commonly used. The more ways the spring is tied, the harder the seat.

Both Hands Tied: Welfare Reform and the Race to the Bottom in the Low-Wage Labor Market
Both Hands Tied studies the working poor in the United States, focusing in particular on the relation between welfare and low-wage earnings among working mothers. Grounded in the experience of thirty-three women living in Milwaukee and Racine, Wisconsin, it tells the story of their struggle to balance child care and wage-earning in poorly paying and often state-funded jobs with inflexible schedules—and the moments when these jobs failed them and they turned to the state for additional aid.
Jane L. Collins and Victoria Mayer here examine the situations of these women in light of the 1996 national Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act and other like-minded reforms—laws that ended the entitlement to welfare for those in need and provided an incentive for them to return to work. Arguing that this reform came at a time of gendered change in the labor force and profound shifts in the responsibilities of family, firms, and the state, Both Hands Tied provides a stark but poignant portrait of how welfare reform afflicted poor, single-parent families, ultimately eroding the participants’ economic rights and affecting their ability to care for themselves and their children.
Enclos des Fusillés - Ereperk der Gefusilleerden; Albert Maurice and others
Albert Maurice (the multi-coloured bouquet at his resting place toward the right) The 'Park of Honour of Those Who Were Shot' Memorial and graves of resistance heroes and martyrs - brave Jews, brave Christians, dissidents, anti-fascists, socialists, rebels, samizdat journalists and organisers - those who dared to question and fight oppression, and the evil Powers That Be. Here you see the faces of my brothers, my own dear family, my partners in fighting sheer political evil - resting in their graves here, in perhaps the most poignant place in all of Brussels, Belgium. Here lie those in Belgium who were shot fighting the Nazis of the 1940s - as I myself have nearly been killed fighting the more recent fascists, some of the 'new Nazis' of the 21st century. Shortly after I arrived in Brussels as a political refugee from the US, under threat of murder by far-right political figures, this is one of the first places I visited. I came here to weep some tears amid the companionship of my anti-fascist comrades, who also looked death in the eye as they tried to speak and act for what is right. The camera used here, and the chance to make these photos, are gifts of the brave dissident US Jewish physician, Dr Moshe 'Moss' David Posner, who risked and gambled his own life, to support me and help keep me alive in the face of threats by neo-Nazi assassins. These are photos from the daily life of writer and political refugee from the US, Dr Les (Leslie) Sachs - photos documenting my new beloved home city of Brussels, Belgium, my life among the people and Kingdom who have given me safety in the face of the threats to destroy me. Brussels has a noble history of providing a safe haven to other dissident refugee writers, such as Victor Hugo, Karl Marx, Charles Baudelaire, and Alexandre Dumas, and I shall forever be grateful that Brussels and Belgium have helped to protect my own life as well. (To read about the efforts to silence me and my journalism, the attacks on me, the smears and the threats, see the website by European journalists "About Les Sachs" linked in my Flickr profile, and press articles such as "Two EU Writers Under Threat of Murder: Roberto Saviano and Dr Les Sachs".) This extremely moving memorial and gravesite, is known locally as the Enclos des Fusilles - Ereperk der Gefusillerden (Brussels is bi-lingual French- and Dutch-speaking, so place names are given in both languages here.) - In English, the name is perhaps best rendered as the "Park of Honour of Those Who Were Shot". The Enclos des Fusilles - Ereperk der Gefusilleerden includes many martyrs of the Belgian resistance of World War II, being both their gravesite and also the place where many of them were shot to death by a Nazi firing squad. - And it is also a memorial and the place of death, of other heroic figures who were shot to death in the previous German occupation of Belgium during World War I. One heroine from the First World War who was shot by the Germans and is now commemorated here, is the famous British nurse Edith Cavell. The reason that this was a convenient place of execution by firing squad, is that it was originally part of a Belgian military training area and rifle range that existed here once upon a time, and you still see here the tall hillside that served as an earthen 'backstop' to safely absorb high-powered rifle bullets. The hillside was thus ready-made for the German commandants who occupied Brussels in both wars, to carry out their firing-squad executions. Nowadays, the Enclos des Fusilles - Ereperk der Gefusilleerden appears quite 'central' in urban Brussels, as it lies in the Schaerbeek - Schaarbeek commune, directly in the path from the EU institution area toward the roads that lead to the airport, and very near to the 90-metre high VRT-RTBF communications tower that has long been a major Brussels landmark. The Enclos des Fusilles - Ereperk der Gefusilleerden is walking distance from the eastern Brussels 'premetro', which is a grouping of tram lines that run underground for several stops on both the eastern and western sides of the Brussels city centre, supplementing the regular metro underground system with a similarly high frequency of service and also underground. If you continue along the premetro lines south from the Diamant stop which is near the Enclos des Fusilles - Ereperk der Gefusilleerden, you shortly arrive at the elaborate 19th-century military barracks buildings which once housed the soldiers who used the rifle range and parade grounds, which later become the place of martyrdom for members of the anti-Nazi resistance. This is a place of great emotion for me personally, because the resistance martyrs who lie in these graves - a number of them socialists, journalists and with Jewish-heritage, critics of corruption just like myself - are my comrades in my own ordeal. I barely escaped alive out of the USA, nearly murdered by neo-Nazi-linked thugs, who themselves spoke f
Raining - 2. I followed the map that front desk drew for me. Thomas was sleeping at the hotel room and I had some time to my own. I thought to clean myself up. It was a long time since I last had my hair cut. “How are you doing?” the man said. The shop was empty. He was leaning against the counter while leafing through a magazine when I walked in. “I'm Ken. Did you need a hair cut?” “Yeah,” I said. “Right this way.” He folded a corner of the magazine down and set it behind the counter. He was taller than he appeared yesterday. His voice carried a relaxed, yet distant tone. Even in the dim of the entryway, I could see the sweat lines along his white shirt where he tied black apron around his waist. After yesterday's rain, the temperature was much warmer and the humidity had returned. Ken showed me to a salon chair by the window. It was the same seat that I had witnessed the woman sitting in yesterday. In the ceiling above the chair were white fluorescent lamps that made the room feel sterile and cold. I sat down. In front of me was a sink and a mirror. On the opposite side of the room was the woman who had offered me the cigarette at the bus stop. Her back was turned towards me and in front of her was an old television set showing Days of Being Wild. She must have noticed that I was looking in her direction. She turned around and smiled. “We met yesterday didn't we? I saw you yesterday waiting in front of the best stop. New faces are easy to get noticed around here. Did you enjoy my cigarettes?” Ken said. “Cigarettes?” I said. I moved from hands from my knees to the edge of the arm rest. “The ones my wife had were mine. She always enjoys them.” Ken stopped the facet and turned the chair around. My back now faced the sink and mirror. He reclined the chair and began to wash my hair. “Let me know if the water is too warm.” “It's fine,” I said. “Elaine always takes them from my desk. I never have any idea where they are. Well, I don’t' mind though. Where did you come from?” I felt the coolness of the shampoo touch my scalp. “From San Francisco,” I said. “In America?” “Yes.” “Will you be leaving soon?” “Maybe tomorrow or the day after. We're just passing through,” I said. His hands paused for a brief moment, then they continued. “In a few days...that's too bad.” I heard the television shut off and Elaine's footsteps travel across the room. “Hello there,” she said. I wasn't able to move my head but could see her at the edge of my peripheral vision. She stood in the entryway. I thought I saw the hint of an amused smile. Ken pulled the drain plug emptied the water. It gurgled. When it finished, he turned the faucet back on and all I could hear was the sound of rushing water filling the sink back up. I stared out the window on the bus ride back. The hotel was five stops away. By this time, Thomas should have woken up and read the note I left for him in the morning. “Going to get a haircut, will come back with lunch,” it said. It was raining again and the street was furnished with a bouquet of umbrellas. It rained. It came down in torrential sheets that streamed off of store awnings and curbs. I sat on the second level of the bus, in front of the stairs. I was feeling much lighter. I touched the sides of my head. They felt prickly. I moved two fingers across my upper lip and chin. I forgot how smooth they could be. I looked down at the people getting onto the bus at the stop before the hotel. Watching the rain run off the window made me drowsy and the intervals between my blinks were becoming longer. But I didn't want to miss my stop so I focused on any object that stood out in the scenery outside. Below me, I could see the top of a purple umbrella make its way along the side of the bus. She had the same amused smile as she noticed me on her way up the stairs. “Do you mind?” she said. “Sure. I don't mind at all,” I said. She smoothed the pleats of her dress underneath her an and sat down. She hung the umbrella on the stair railing and crossed her legs. “You look better than you did yesterday,” she said. She was looking straight ahead. “Thank you.” “You looked sad yesterday. I think this suits you much more.” She folded her hands across her lap. There was a silver ring on her right hand. She noticed me glancing at it “Are you married?” she said. “I was.” “I'm sorry to hear that. Do you still love her?” “I don't know. It's complicated I suppose.” “Isn't everything.” “But I can say today that I do.” “Yet, she let you go.” Her directness made me nervous. I had gotten use to not talking or thinking about Isabelle at all even though her former existence permeated the air around me. “And what about you?” I said. “I suppose. He has his life and I have mine.” She turned to look outside the window next to me, “In the end, there's not much to be sad about.” We arrived at my stop, a few hundred feet away from the hotel front. I didn't know how to respond anymore. I remember the morning before s
