Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: How British Columbia became an international hotspot for submarines, submersibles, Newt Suits, underwater robotics and a host of other cutting-edge undersea technologies. In Deep, Dark and Dangerous, maritime historian Vickie Jensen explores the fascinating story of British Columbia’s rise to become a world leader in the underwater tech industry, tracing BC’s colourful history and bright future as a front runner in the world of subsea technology innovation. This little-known saga began with the remarkable story of Pisces I. In the early 1960s, two commercial hard-hat divers from the Vancouver area, Don Sorte and Al Trice, and engineer Mack Thompson realized that they needed a small manned submersible with robot arms for deep-sea work. They couldn’t find one to buy, so they decided to build their own. Experts told them such things could only be built in specialized facilities and it would be suicidal to try a home-made version. Just over two years and $100,000 later their Pisces I was successfully making two-thousand-foot dives. The three innovators formed a company called International Hydrodynamics (HYCO) as orders started to arrive from around the world. In the process of building some fourteen submersibles, HYCO would serve as an incubator for a generation of experts that would launch an entire industry of subsea companies in BC. Drawing on her background in documenting both history and industry, Vickie Jensen uncovers stories, both historical and current, detailing the submarines, submersibles, robots, torpedo recovery technology and inventions that are responsible for BC’s remarkable and continuing subsea reputation. Written with colour and flair, this is a fascinating and exciting story that anyone can enjoy.

Ali figures she’ll find out while she’s vacationing in Maine with Dulcie and her four-year-old daughter, Emma, in the house where Ali’s mother’s family used to spend summers. All hopes for relaxation are quashed shortly after their arrival, though, when the girls meet Sissy, a kid who’s mean and spiteful and a bad influence on Emma.

Download Free The Last Voyage of the Andrea Doria PDF by Greg King Full Book and published by St. Martin's Press. This book was released on 2020-04-07 with total page 352 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the tradition of Erik Larson's Dead Wake comes The Last Voyage of the Andrea Doria, about the sinking of the glamorous Italian ocean liner, including never-before-seen photos of the wreck today. In 1956, a stunned world watched as the famous Italian ocean liner Andrea Doria sank after being struck by a Swedish vessel off the coast of Nantucket. Unlike the tragedy of the Titanic, this sinking played out in real time across radios and televisions, the first disaster of the modern age. Audiences witnessed everything that ensued after the unthinkable collision of two modern vessels equipped with radar: perilous hours of uncertainty; the heroic rescue of passengers; and the final gasp as the pride of the Italian fleet slipped beneath the Atlantic, taking some fifty lives with her. Her loss signaled the end of the golden age of ocean liner travel. Now, Greg King and Penny Wilson offer a fresh look at this legendary liner and her tragic fate. Andrea Doria represented the romance of travel, the possibility of new lives in the new world, and the glamour of 1950s art, culture, and life. Set against a glorious backdrop of celebrity and La Dolce Vita, Andrea Doria's last voyage comes vividly to life in a narrative tightly focused on her passengers – Cary Grant's wife; Philadelphia's flamboyant mayor; the heiress to the Marshall Field fortune; and many brave Italian emigrants – who found themselves plunged into a desperate struggle to survive. The Last Voyage of the Andrea Doria follows the effect this trauma had on their lives, and brings the story up-to-date with the latest expeditions to the wreck. Drawing on in-depth research, interviews with survivors, and never-before-seen photos of the wreck as it is today, The Last Voyage of the Andrea Doria is a vibrant story of fatal errors, shattered lives, and the triumph of the human spirit.

Download Free WineSpeak PDF by Bernard Klem Full Book and published by Board and Bench Publishing. This book was released on 2009-07-01 with total page 346 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: If you read wine reviews, you're already either amused or confused by the soaring language wine writers often use to describe what they're smelling and tasting. But do you always know what they mean? Have you ever sipped a complex white and sensed what's so colorfully described as a peacock's tail? Have you ever savored a full-bodied red only to detect the ripe acrid smell of a horse stall? If not, you're in for a treat, because these terms and thousands more are all here to amuse, dismay, enlighten, inspire, puzzle, and utterly shock you . Welcome to the rich linguistic universe of wine speak: a world where words and wine intersect in an uncontrolled riot of language guaranteed to keep you entertained for hours. The author, a lifelong lover of both wine and words, has compiled and organized this unique thesaurus of 36,975 wine tasting descriptors into 20 special collections extracted from 27 categories so you can locate exactly the right term or phrase to express yourself clearly or to understand others. May your path across the galaxy of wine be paved only with labels from the very best bottles on earth. Or, much more cautiously, with wines that could introduce you to angel pee, citronella, eastern European fruit soup, Godzilla, iodine, ladies' underwear, mustard gas, old running shoes, rawhide, hot tar roads, bubblegum, sweaty saddles, crushed ants, kitchen drains, or even turpentine.

Download Free The Golden Nugget PDF by N.K. Beckley Full Book and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2016-01-15 with total page 96 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Golden Nugget is the fourth book that Mrs. Beckley has written. It is an interactive book and introduces the reader to the history of the Reed Gold Mine in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 1799. It was the first goldmine in the United States of America. I hope that this part of history sparks a discussion both in your classrooms and in your families, maybe at the dinner table. The names of the people are fictional, but the information about the Reed Gold Mine, Italy, and South Korea are correct. Look for the last book in the series called Emily to be out sometime soon. The rest of the books should be out soon. I hope you have enjoyed the books as much as I have writing and researching them.

Download Free Lost and Found PDF by Jamey Glasnovic Full Book and published by Rocky Mountain Books Ltd. This book was released on 2014 with total page 374 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "For many people, moving to a mountain town is the realization of a dream, the final step in a pilgrimage to a relaxed lifestyle in a rugged and beautiful setting. For Jamey, the long journey began when he was a teenager in the 1980s with the vague idea there might be a better life somewhere 'out West', Eventually he fled the chaos and stress of the big city and tried to settle into an uncomplicated Rocky Mountain existence. It wouldn't stay uncomplicated for long. A spirited amble by bicycle and on foot, inspired by the work of Bill Bryson, [this] explores the heart of the Rocky Mountain Parks and examines the consequences of celebrating that beauty too effectively with mass tourism and over-ambitious development. Eschewing the convenience of motorized transportation, Glasnovic earns every kilometre that passes beneath his feet, and along the way he learns a thing or two about feeling profoundly connected to place - an experience some would describe as being home"--Publisher's description.
Download Free Cult in Context PDF by Caroline Malone Full Book and published by Oxbow Books. This book was released on 2010-04-01 with total page 368 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Gods, deities, symbolism, deposition, cosmology and intentionality are all features of the study of early ritual and cult. Archaeology has great difficulties in providing satisfactory interpretation or recognition of these elusive but important parts of ancient society, and methodologies are often poorly equipped to explore the evidence. This collection of papers explores a wide range of prehistoric and early historic archaeological contexts from Britain, Europe and beyond, where monuments, architectural structures, megaliths, art, caves, ritual activity and symbolic remains offer exciting glimpses into ancient belief systems and cult behaviour. Different theoretical and practical approaches are demonstrated, offering both new directions and considered conclusions to the many problems of studying the archaeology of cult and ritual. Central to the volume is an exploration of early Malta and its intriguing Temple Culture, set in a broad perspective by the discussion and theoretical approaches presented in different geographical and chronological contexts.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Brielle, New Jersey, is the place where the boat captains and fishermen live. It is also the place where the hangers-on and wannabes and also-rans keep believing in the sea. #2 Nagle’s area of expertise was the New York and New Jersey shipping lanes, which saw a lot of traffic in the 1970s and 1980s. The wrecks there rarely yielded treasure, but they often yielded stories that fascinated Nagle. #3 Deep-wreck divers, like Nagle, had to brave the unknown depths of the ocean floor. They had to discover all of their discoveries by themselves, without any maps or directions. #4 The Andrea Doria was the Mount Everest of shipwrecks. It was not a typical target for Nagle, since her location was widely known and she had been explored by divers since the day after her sinking. But the Doria made siren calls to great wreck divers.
