An entertaining railway memoir covering the Diesel modernisation.Aspects of railway and locomotive operations are explained clearly with detailed examples.Will appeal to readers with a specialised interest in Railway technology, engineering and history. I Would Have Done the Job for Nothing is a fly on the wall account detailing behind the scenes events of running a railway, including the odd occasion when the fly got swatted. It covers life in a busy locomotive works at Crewe during the age of steam and how the authors’ career developed and led to his moving from the Wirral to the East Midlands to work in the Derby Locomotive Drawing Office. He later transferred to the Headquarters at Derby just as the Diesel rail car modernisation began. Working for this new team they identified and resolved many issues of the new diesel locomotives. Many of the facts within this book may never have been told first hand, and although some were almost hilarious, others could have been far more serious and ultimately dangerous to the public if they have not been dealt with. The book aims to detail the attraction of engineering and the highs and lows of the job itself. It will appeal to readers with a specialised interest in locomotives, railway engineering and history.

Here you'll learn how to: • perform spiritual practices while commuting to and from work • meditate while sitting, walking, or standing—a minute at a time • understand ambition, money, and power from a spiritual perspective Work as a Spiritual Practice is an essential guide for anyone who wants to bring his or her spiritual life and work life together.

The clock struck twelve-thirty on March 21, 1998, on the dawn of a new day. And though Agnes Greene was unaware at the time, she had just begun a new phase of her journey on earth. Much like the Old Testament character Job, she encountered a major crisis that shook her world. One minute she was talking on the phone, and the next minute she was face to face with death. In this memoir, Greene—with special memories from family members—narrates not only her personal struggle to survive four Grand Mal seizures and a brain tumor the size of a lemon, but also the deep spiritual truths learned during the journey. God is Sovereign, i am nothing tells the story of Greene's life-changing transformation and her understanding of how God's sovereignty and her nothingness can exist in perfect harmony. This inspirational and uplifting memoir delivers the message that, with faith in God, any obstacle can be overcome.

The three basic human needs are food, water...and shelter. But in the late 21st century, compassion is a crime. You can get your memories wiped just for trying to help. Papa Preston Walford's world doesn't allow for coincidences. Accidents. Secrets in the backs of closets. Or the needs of his own daughter. Meredith Preston has reason to seek shelter. She needs protection from the monsters in her mind, in her history, in her family. And the great storms of a changing climate have made literal shelter imperative. When a cutting-edge, high-tech house, designed by a genius with a unique connection to Meredith, overcomes its programming to give shelter to a homeless man in a storm, from its closets emerge the revelations of a past too painful to remember. In the world of Susan Palwick's Shelter, perception is about to meet reality, and reality has mud all over it. The truth won't make you happy, but it may just make you whole.

The fruit of twenty years of moral reflection on the emerging greatest challenge to humanity of the 21st century, these far-sighted and influential essays by a pioneering practical philosopher on the tangled questions of justice between nations and justice across generations confronting all attempts at international cooperation in controlling climate change sharply crystallize the central choices and offer constructive directions forward. Arguing that persistent attempts by U.S. negotiators to avoid the fundamental issues of justice at the heart of persistent international disagreement on the terms of a binding multilateral treaty are as morally misguided as they are diplomatically counter-productive, Henry Shue has built a case that efforts to price carbon (through cap-and-trade or carbon taxes) as a mechanism to drive down greenhouse gas emissions by the affluent must, for both ethical and political reasons, be complemented by international transfers that temporarily subsidize the development of non-carbon energy and its dissemination to those trapped in poverty. Our vital escape from climate change rooted in the dominance of the fossil fuel regime ought not, and in fact need not, come at the price of de-railing the escape of the world's poorest from poverty rooted in lack of affordable energy that does not undermine the climate. The momentum of changes in the planetary climate system and the political inertia of energy regimes mean that future generations, like the poorest of the present, are vulnerable to our decisions, and they have rights not to be left helpless by those of us with the power instead to leave them hope.
