Rogue Justice Karen J. Greenberg 2016-05-24 The definitive account of how America’s War on Terror sparked a decade-long assault on the rule of law, weakening our courts and our Constitution in the name of national security. The day after September 11, President Bush tasked the attorney general with preventing another terrorist attack on the United States. From that day forward, the Bush administration turned to the Department of Justice to give its imprimatur to activities that had previously been unthinkable—from the NSA’s spying on US citizens to indefinite detention to torture. Many of these activities were secretly authorized, others done in the light of day. When President Obama took office, many observers expected a reversal of these encroachments upon civil liberties and justice, but the new administration found the rogue policies to be deeply entrenched and, at times, worth preserving. Obama ramped up targeted killings, held fast to aggressive surveillance policies, and fell short on bringing reform to detention and interrogation. How did America veer so far from its founding principles of justice? Rogue Justice connects the dots for the first time—from the Patriot Act to today’s military commissions, from terrorism prosecutions to intelligence priorities, from the ACLU’s activism to Edward Snowden’s revelations. And it poses a stark question: Will the American justice system ever recover from the compromises it made for the war on terror? Riveting and deeply reported, Rogue Justice could only have been written by Karen Greenberg, one of this country’s top experts on Guantánamo, torture, and terrorism, with a deep knowledge of both the Bush and Obama administrations. Now she brings to life the full story of law and policy after 9/11, introducing us to the key players and events, showing that time and again, when liberty and security have clashed, justice has been the victim. — Kirkus, Best Books of 2016
ATX: Outbreak Michael Finley 2017-10-23 Cattle in five states began displaying vague central nervous system symptoms at essentially the same time. Diagnostic protocols were followed revealing inconclusive laboratory results. The USDA sent samples from the affected cattle to an international reference laboratory in England. They also detailed teams of veterinary experts to each premise to conduct comprehensive investigations. ATX Feeders in Hereford, Texas was one of the involved sites. Dr. Penny Adams, a USDA veterinary pathologist, is charged with investigating the ATX Hereford feedlot. Penny, a chic blond-haired thirty-something beauty, also holds a PhD in Molecular Biology. Randy Bennett, DVM is Director of ATX Feeders and son of Randall Bennett. Randy, is a ruggedly handsome thirty-something professional steer roper who regularly competes in rodeos. Randall, Chairman of ATX Holdings, owns a diversified self-made empire based out of Amarillo, Texas. Each of Randall's eight children, or their spouse, run a division of the holding company's businesses. Randy and Penny were attracted to one another as soon as they met. Their relationship grew as they worked together in hopes of finding the cause for this mysterious disease. As Penny and her team of veterinary experts began their investigation, cattle at two other ATX feedlots began displayed neurological symptoms. To allow their relationship to grow, Randy asked Randall for his help. The British reference lab, using their electron microscope, identified the agent. However, where it came from remained a mystery until Randy and Penny examined Randy's roping steers. With the help of others, it became clear this was an ingenious act of bioterrorism. As the USDA worked to contain the disease, indemnify affected cattle owners, and develop a method to destroy over 12 million diseased cattle; the Department of Homeland Security began a terrorism investigation. A sophisticated financial plot was unraveled whereby the terrorists would profit from the effects of the outbreak as well as devastate American agriculture. Obtaining enough evidence to prosecute was another matter.

Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force 2010 Eric H. Holder 2014-10-19 The financial crisis has impacted every American. It has presented not only fraud and deception in the finance and housing markets that helped fuel the crisis, but also the potential for fraudulent schemes to misuse the public's unprecedented investment in economic recovery. While we are aggressively confronting fraud born of the financial crisis, the reality is that we cannot prosecute our way out of the situation. Instead, we must address it with an equally broad and comprehensive enforcement response. This is the mission of the Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force.

Ohio Train Disasters Jane Ann Turzillo 2014 In nearly a century of heavy rail travel in Ohio, a dozen train accidents stand out as the most horrific. In the bitter cold, just after Christmas 1876, eleven cars plunged seventy-five feet into the frigid water below. The stoves burst into flames, burning to death all who were not killed by the fall. Fires cut short the lives of forty-three people in the head-on Doodlebug collision in Cuyahoga Falls in 1940 and eleven people in a train wreck near Dresden in 1912. Author Jane Ann Turzillo unearths these red-hot stories of ill-fated passengers, heroic trainmen and the wrecking crews who faced death and destruction on Ohio's rails.

Maritime Chicago Theodore J. Karamanski 2000 Strategically placed on the southern shores of Lake Michigan, Chicago has always been an important transportation and trading hub. Early Native American settlers discovered Chicago's rich resources, French missionaries and trappers found the Chicago River an excellent portage to the Des Plaines, Illinois, and Mississippi Rivers, and merchants used it to ship lumber and grain to the rest of the world. Maritime Chicago tells the story of this city situated on a great "inland sea." From the thrill of two lakefront World's Fairs, to the unbelievable sorrow of the Eastland, which went down just a few feet from the banks of the Chicago River, taking with it 800 souls, Chicago's maritime past bears witness to much triumph and tragedy, victory and defeat. Today, the 29 miles of lakefront, and the revived riverfront are vital parts of the economy and recreation of Chicago.

Water, Wood, and Wild Things Hannah Kirshner 2022-03-29 "With this book, you feel you can stop time and savor the rituals of life." --Maira Kalman An immersive journey through the culture and cuisine of one Japanese town, its forest, and its watershed--where ducks are hunted by net, saké is brewed from the purest mountain water, and charcoal is fired in stone kilns--by an American writer and food stylist who spent years working alongside artisans One night, Brooklyn-based artist and food writer Hannah Kirshner received a life-changing invitation to apprentice with a "saké evangelist" in a misty Japanese mountain village called Yamanaka. In a rapidly modernizing Japan, the region--a stronghold of the country's old-fashioned ways--was quickly becoming a destination for chefs and artisans looking to learn about the traditions that have long shaped Japanese culture. Kirshner put on a vest and tie and took her place behind the saké bar. Before long, she met a community of craftspeople, farmers, and foragers--master woodturners, hunters, a paper artist, and a man making charcoal in his nearly abandoned village on the outskirts of town. Kirshner found each craftsperson not only exhibited an extraordinary dedication to their work but their distinct expertise contributed to the fabric of the local culture. Inspired by these masters, she devoted herself to learning how they work and live. Taking readers deep into evergreen forests, terraced rice fields, and smoke-filled workshops, Kirshner captures the centuries-old traditions still alive in Yamanaka. Water, Wood, and Wild Things invites readers to see what goes into making a fine bowl, a cup of tea, or a harvest of rice and introduces the masters who dedicate their lives to this work. Part travelogue, part meditation on the meaning of work, and full of her own beautiful drawings and recipes, Kirshner's refreshing book is an ode to a place and its people, as well as a profound examination of what it means to sustain traditions and find purpose in cultivation and craft.

Pennsylvania Main Line Railroad Stations: Philadelphia to Harrisburg Jim Sundman 2016 In 1857, the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) took over Pennsylvania's Main Line of Public Works, a state-owned railroad and canal system built in the 1830s. Most are gone, but fortunately some still stand and are in use today. Costly to build and maintain, and never attracting the traffic needed to sustain it, the state was eager to let it go. Keeping the rail portion and combining it with its own lines, the PRR ultimately developed a well-built and well-run rail line from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh all while keeping the "main line" moniker. The eastern section between Philadelphia and Harrisburg was especially successful, particularly after the railroad built new communities along the line that were at first summer destinations and later year-round homes for daily commuters. Other towns and cities along the main line had a strong industrial or agricultural base needing rail access, and many of these communities had attractive train stations. Images of America: Pennsylvania Main Line Railroad Stations: Philadelphia to Harrisburg documents many of these passenger stations through vintage photographs and other images.

Mines Around Silverton Karen A. Vendl and Mark A. Vendl with the San Juan County Historical Society 2015 Silverton is located in the heart of the San Juan Mountains, which have been described by H.H. Bancroft as "the wildest and most inaccessible region of Colorado, if not North America." The region has a long and colorful mining history, dating back to the Spanish exploration of the area in the 18th century. For the past 250 years, men have sought gold and silver in these mountains. However, full-scale mining did not begin until the 1870s, and for more than a century, mining was the lifeblood of Silverton and the surrounding area. The San Juan Mountains have been called one of the four great mining areas of Colorado, in a state known for its mining heritage. This is not only the story of the mines but also of the men and women who worked and lived in these rugged mountains.

Jamestown and Western Tuolumne County Judith Marvin 2011 The hamlet of Jamestown dates to the early Gold Rush. Discovered in August 1848, the Woods Creek placers at Jamestown eventually yielded millions of dollars in gold. When the easily mined placer gold gave out, the town remained a trade and supply depot for mining higher in the foothills, with a prime location on the roads from the Central Valley. From the 1890s to 1910s, the hard-rock mining era, known as the second Gold Rush, granted new life to the town, surrounded as it is by the Mother Lode itself. But it was the coming of the Sierra Railway in 1897 that cemented Jamestown's status, transporting the bounty of Tuolumne County's natural resources, including minerals, cattle, produce, and lumber, to the waiting markets in California and across the country. The railroad also facilitated three major dam construction projects from the 1910s to the 1940s and brought many film crews to the area.

Neihart Mining R. L. Lansverk 2013 The route from silver mine to silver dollar could be long and dangerous to the miner, owner, and laborers at every step. It is hard to understand the history without some knowledge of that route. More than simply wagon trails, stream crossings, or buffalo sightings, the route also consisted of people. About half the people who followed a route to populate mining towns were miners; the rest served those who mined, like hotel and boardinghouse operators, lawyers, laborers, assay men, merchants, restaurant servers, lumbermen, store owners, saloon keepers, or a traveling preacher. Images of America: Neihart Mining presents their history in the camp that "could have been the richest town in Montana."
