The common concept of humanity revolves round the personality of an individual and that too is often narrowed down to the physical person which is objective and perceivable as an essential tool for social behaviour. But what lies under this exterior is a whole mass of emotions, responses and reactions which activate the physical personality or else the external form is nothing but a mass of dead and inert matter. These two layers of the human personality are clearly discernible even to an outsider. But there is a subtler undercurrent of ideas, thoughts and impressions which serve as a causative layer to the internal personality and from which the emotions responses and reactions arise. In this book the author has compiled his feelings and experiences at the causative layer depicting how every event of life is a step towards evolution.
According to the author, the human mind has a tremendous capacity for acceptance as well as repulsion.

Aquaculture (AQ) -- the raising of fish and shellfish in captivity -- has been confined to near-shore coastal waters or in other water bodies that fall under state regulation. Recently, there has been interest in expanding AQ to offshore waters, which would involve raising fish and shellfish in the open ocean, and consequently bringing these types of operations under fed. regulation. No comprehensive legislative or regulatory framework to manage such an expansion exists. Instead, multiple federal agencies have authority to regulate different aspects of offshore AQ under a variety of laws. This report identifies key issues that should be addressed in the development of an effective regulatory framework for U.S. offshore AQ. Illus.
The number of oil and gas wells on leased fed. land has increased dramatically. To help manage the environmental impacts of these wells, BLM requires oil and gas operators to reclaim disturbed land. BLM requires them to provide a bond before beginning drilling operations. BLM refers to oil and gas wells and leased land that will require reclamation as potential liabilities because BLM may have to pay for reclamation if the operators fail to do so. This report determined: (1) BLM's policies for managing potential federal oil and gas well liability; (2) the extent to which BLM has implemented these policies; and (3) the challenges, if any, BLM faces in managing potential oil and gas well liability.

In 1992 Congress authorized the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) to implement the Delaware River deepening project, which would deepen the river's shipping channel from 40 to 45 feet. In 2002 a review of the Corps' economic analysis of the project, concluding that it contained significant limitations. It was recommended that the Corps prepare a comprehensive economic reanalysis, which the Corps completed in 2004. This report determined the extent to which: (1) the reanalysis addressed the limitations identified; (2) the reanalysis's benefit projections, as updated, reflect current and anticipated market and industry conditions; and (3) the Corps has accounted for other key issues that could affect the project.

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. Increases in the number and intensity of wildland fires have led the Forest Service (FS) to place greater emphasis on thinning forests and rangelands to reduce the buildup of potentially hazardous vegetation that can fuel wildland fires. The public can file a formal objection to a proposed decision, or can appeal a decision the agency has already made. This report determined, for FY 2006-2008; (1) the number of FS fuel reduction decisions and the associated acreage; (2) the number of decisions subject to appeal and objection, the number appealed, objected to, and litigated, and the associated acreage; and (3) the outcomes of appeals, objections, and litigation, and the extent to which they were processed within prescribed time frames.

Every meaningful life is a series of trials and triumphs and both have to be accepted with equal poise for perennial joy. This book explains that no matter how much one may try or wish, there is no real control over the events of life and one has to face them as they come. A positive person accepts these gracefully and grows wiser in the process. However, the reverse is what befalls upon a negative person with negative thoughts and actions. In this motivational book, the author has narrated several anecdotes from his own life or from those closely connected to him. From every incident he draws a positive inspiration for himself, as well as for others. Very aptly titled, each incident has been described in a simple, short and lucid manner which keeps the reader engaged throughout the book. A very powerful and moving book that provides ample scope for self-development.
