Description: Three Mile Island burst into the nation's headlines twenty-five years ago, forever changing our view of nuclear power. The dramatic accident held the world's attention for an unsettling week in March 1979 as engineers struggled to understand what had happened and brought the damaged reactor to a safe condition. Much has been written since then about TMI, but it is not easy to find up-to-date information that is both reliable and accessible to the nonscientific reader. TMI 25 Years Later offers a much-needed &"one-stop&" resource for a new generation of citizens, students, and policy makers. The legacy of Three Mile Island has been far reaching. The worst nuclear accident in U.S. history marked a turning point in our policies, our perceptions, and our national identity. Those involved in the nuclear industry today study the scenario carefully and review the decontamination and recovery process. Risk management and the ability to convey risks to the general population rationally and understandably are an integral part of implementing new technologies. Political, environmental, and energy decisions have been made with TMI as a factor, and while studies reveal little environmental damage from the accident, long-term studies of health effects continue. TMI 25 Years Later presents a balanced and factual account of the accident, the cleanup effort, and the many facets of its legacy. The authors bring extensive research and writing The authors bring extensive research and writing experience to this book. After the accident and the cleanup, a significant collection of videotapes, photographs, and reports was donated to the University Libraries at Penn State University. Bonnie Osif and Thomas Conkling are engineering librarians at Penn State who maintain a database of these materials, which they have made available to the general public through an award-winning website. Anthony Baratta is a nuclear engineer who worked with the decontamination and recovery project at TMI and is an expert in nuclear accidents. The book features unique photographs of the cleanup and helpful appendixes that enable readers to investigate further various aspects of the story.

Description: This book is about the changes in lifestyle that I encountered as I advanced through life. As I matured, I grew in both mind and body. My interests changed as new opportunities opened up for me to consider. Sometimes, the change was required to overcome some major crisis like the loss of a loved one or learning about a serious medical condition that would adversely affect my future. How a person deals with this change is important to each of us individually, but we must also consider the impact that the change will have on others around us. Realizing and fully understanding the need for change and making a decision to implement the changes that are needed is sometimes a difficult decision for us to make. How we change as we continue down life's path is very important, and we must make the decision with an open mind, a positive attitude, and the best information available.

Making Sense Of Life Stages The Workplace And Tmi

Description: This book offers a model for making sense of the Information Age and too much information in the workplace and in life stages. The Sensemaking Flow Charts for handling Too Much Information and selecting alternatives are a sorting-out approach that has been used in corporations and can also be applied to government agencies and military services seeking to better use information technology to find innovative approaches for problems and for new definitions of problems. Popular author Thomas Friedman states that 'something big has happened in the world's wiring in the last ten years, but it was obscured by the financial crisis and 9/11. We went from a connected world to a hyperconnected world. He stated that Facebook, Twitter, 4G-5G, Smart Phones, iPads, ubiquitous wireless and the cloud, big data, cellphone apps and Skype did not exist or were in their infancy a decade ago (in Forbes, May 2013). Making Sense of this and more is one's 21st Century task. Hopefully overtime, some of the dilemmas and chaos discussed in the corporate, government and Defense Department chapters here will have been addressed and resolved. Looking back in hindsight allows one to see possibilities that presented themselves, even more clearly. Applying the Making Sense Flow Chart to various known and difficult stages in the growing to adulthood years also was helpful to parents and to older children in the 'transition' stages appearing in child and young adult development. The charts for the transition age stages in today's world with information overload appear at the beginning of each chapter. The response to each chart by readers has been "This has been very helpful."

Description: TMI is the story of how Mario Lavandeira became Perez Hilton, a celebrity blogger with millions of readers around the globe who was sometimes called the Most Hated Man in Hollywood. Growing up in Miami's Little Havana in the 1980s, Perez was bullied at school because of his weight and his sexual orientation, so he devoted all his free time to eating and watching TV in his bedroom. A scholarship to NYU was a lifesaver, as Perez felt at home in New York. But his finances took a battering, and he moved on to L.A. After being fired from three different jobs within the space of ten months, Perez suddenly hit it big in 2005 with his gossip blog. With Perez's help, many promising young artists reached the masses--Katy Perry, Adele, Amy Winehouse, and Lady Gaga, to name just a few. Perez soon became a Hollywood insider, but during his dramatic fallout with Lady Gaga he realized that he had been used. Perez's blog became increasingly mean--"It went from bitchy to nasty," he recalls. But a turning point came when Perez uploaded a video for the It Gets Better campaign and was surprised by the backlash it received. People called him a bully and a hypocrite because he previously outed gay celebrities on his blog. Perez was forced to reevaluate not only his alter ego, but also himself as a person. Following the birth of his son, he was also faced with a number of new opportunities for growth and personal reflection. TMI reveals the man behind the blog in a new, revealing, and still juicy memoir.

Description: TMI: Truthful Marriage Insights is an intimate, candid view into one woman’s marriage, offered to help others benefit from the lessons she’s learned. The book is aimed at encouraging newly married couples who are navigating the struggles that early marriage can endure. The main theme is to seek God’s help in establishing a Christ-centred marriage whose values feature communication, prayer, and transparency. For people looking forward to marriage and married couples, TMI is a loaded toolbox. The book is part memoir, and it draws heavily from the author’s personal stories. This is a woman’s honest, authentic approach to marriage, delivered alongside humble revelations she invites the reader to share. This is documented proof that marriage can be fantastic with work, an enduring focus on God, and acceptance of your own imperfections. And this is “too much information” in the best way: a tell-all, real-life contemplation of best practices for a Christ-honouring marriage.
