It is 2059 and Portland, Maine, like so much of the world has become largely a war zone of crime and poverty. Resources are all but gone. And as the swan song of civilization rapidly come to a close... More > the government develops a plan that officially does not exist. It is a plan designed to exploit the world's last remaining resource -- the beginnings of which lay hidden in an underground facility in the woods near Jay, Maine.
Now, Edward Drake, a banking analyst in Portland will have his suspicions confirmed as his life is destroyed by a government that seems to have run out of options. He will be torn away from everything he has ever cared about. With his life stolen from him, all he wants is to go home and to return to his wife, Ajna; to resume his life. This is the story of a governments attempt at self preservation, at any cost. And for Edward, there seems to be no way out.< Less

The third document contains a compendium of procedures to be followed in maintaining mooring material in suitable condition for use by operational fleet surface vessels and submarines.< Less
This design manual is one of a series developed from an evaluation of facilities in the shore establishment, from surveys of the availability of new materials and construction methods, and from... More > selection of the best design practices of the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, other Government agencies, and the private sector. This manual uses, to the maximum extent feasible, national professional society, association and institute standards in accordance with NAVFACENGCOM policy. Deviations from these criteria should not be made without prior approval of NAVFACENGCOM Headquarters (Code 04). Design cannot remain static any more than can the naval functions it serves or the technologies it uses. Accordingly, recommendations for improvement are encouraged from within the Navy and from the private sector and should be furnished to Commanding Officer, Chesapeake Division (Code 406),< Less
For nearly forty years, the NAVFAC DM (Design Manual) 7 Series has been the classic reference on geotechnical engineering. The end product of nearly forty years of research and practice, it contains... More > a wealth of information, some of which cannot be found anywhere else. Many of its charts and tables are still reproduced in text and reference books. This book is a scanned facsimile of the first two (and most important) volumes of the DM 7 series: Soil Mechanics (DM 7.01) and Foundations and Earth Structures (DM 7.02.) Packaged in an attractive and handy format, the book is ideal for reference. With a foreword by J. Ledlie Klosky.< Less
A practical "how-to" guide for a wide variety of material and repair situations, this handbook describes various welding materials and techniques available. The emphasis is placed upon... More > interchangeability of materials ordinarily found. Although complete coverage of all possible materials and their various applications is not furnished, the data provided in this handbook will cover many maintenance situations. The handbook also describes several related maintenance techniques, including wearfacing, MAPP Gas Welding, and some cold processes that can be substituted for welding procedures in certain maintenance applications.< Less
