‘Communism’s all right for a gentleman like yourself, but you’ll get over it.’ The Kettlewells are a dysfunctional family. Richard is an old Etonian whose business ventures are failing. Over one crowded weekend, his daughter Pamela, whom he hardly knows, returns from Russia, a passionate communist; his ex-wife and mistress both turn up; and his butler has a big win at the races. The Roundabout is a funny, touching, highly perceptive look at England in the 1930s, when it looked, just possibly, as if the social order might be changing.

She is proud of her son, but like all good parents, she worries when he is late coming home from school. Will Ruffin's devotion to his teacher, his kindness to his classmates, and his helpfulness to older folks in the community be recognized and rewarded? Read ahead to find the answer.
Who is the Roundabout Man? He doesn't look like a tramp, yet he lives on a roundabout in a caravan and survives on the leftovers from a nearby motorway service station. He calls himself Quinn, the name of a boy in a world-famous series of children's books, but he's nearer retirement than childhood. What he hopes no one will discover is that he's the real Quinn, immortalised as a child by his mother in her entrancing tales about a little boy's adventures with his triplet sisters. It is this inheritance he has successfully run away from - until now. When Quinn's reclusive existence is invaded, he has to turn and face his past, and all the uncomfortable truths it contains about himself, his sisters and, most of all, his mother.

Science Fiction novel purporting the Earth's magnetosphere is capable of transporting people and objects incompletely through mineral deposits in the Earth's mantle. Complete carnage at several automobile wreckage sites in the same general area prompts an astute law enforcement officer to investigate improbable outcome of the tragedies. Geologists and other scientists are brought in to render an opinion on how sun flares, coronal mass ejections and lightning can hamper, interfere with and even exacerbate electromagnetic spectra on earth, and by utilizing earth's magnetite deposits initiate molecular breakdown and transfer of materiel through and within the earth. Finally in the absence of a proper natural explanation, the investigators turn to the possibility of alien intervention and construction of transporting and DNA modifying technology that is responsible for the continuing tragedies.

TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 672: Roundabouts: An Informational Guide - Second Edition explores the planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of roundabouts. The report also addresses issues that may be useful in helping to explain the trade-offs associated with roundabouts. This report updates the U.S. Federal Highway Administration's Roundabouts: An Informational Guide, based on experience gained in the United States since that guide was published in 2000.
Internationally, significant attention is given to transport sustainability including planning, design, construction, evaluation, safety and durability of the road system. The 4th International Gulf Conference on Roads: Efficient Transportation and Pavement Systems - Characterization, Mechanisms, Simulation, and Modeling, hosted by the University of Qatar, November 2008, provided a forum for discussions of recent developments and research results and needs on transportation network optimization, traffic management, transportation safety, and pavement design, analysis, material characterization, modeling, and rehabilitation techniques. This book is a collection of 79 fully refereed papers and six keynote lectures from the conference, and includes contributions on a variety of topics: Highway Design and Transportation Planning Transportation Network and Management System Traffic Characteristics and Analysis Traffic and Transit Signal Control Traffic Simulation, Safety, and Management Advances in Road Safety Engineering Road Accident Analysis and Prediction Work Zone Lane Closures and Dynamic Merging Flexible Pavement Design, Analysis, and Evaluation Pavement Maintenance and Management Binder and Emulsion Characterization - Effect of Binder, Modified Binder, and Fillers on HMA HMA Testing and Properties Foamed and HMA Recycling Impact of Geogrids on Pavement Performance Research, Development, and Standardizations Case Studies
