One of the most daring series ever to emerge from Harry Steeger's Popular Publications was when he converted Battle Birds magazine to Dusty Ayres and His Battle Birds back in 1934. Not content to tell tales of World War I, the new title focused on forecasting the next war! Set in an indeterminate future, the new series was out-and-out-science fiction built around the popular aviation genre. Flying the futuristic Silver Flash aircraft, backed up by wingmen Curly Brooks and Biff Bolton, Captain Dusty Ayres strove every month to beat back the forces of the modern Genghis Khan called Fire-Eyes, who had conquered all but North America. In this, the first series outing, the assault on America commences. With Europe in the grasping hands of the Black Invaders and the US Naval Fleets split by the destruction of the Panama Canal, the future looks bleak for the nation. But the Black Dart warplanes of the enemy were about to strike a wall of screaming steel - Air Group #7, commanded by Dusty Ayres! The wonderful thing about Dusty Ayres and his Battle Birds is that when Popular decided to end the series, Bowen penned a concluding chapter, trying up all loose ends, and bringing the glorious conflict to a satisfying conclusion. So fasten your seat belts! Here starts the wildest ride in pulp aviation history! Black Lightning is read with dazzling urgency by Alan Taylor. This audiobook also features two additional Robert Sidney Bowen stories of the war against the forces of Fire-Eyes, "The C.O.'s Coffin" and "The Smoke-Screen Ace," read by Milton Bagby. 1.

A hugely entertaining career autobiography from a true legend of Welsh rugby and a genuine cult figure. In rugby there are the Flash Harrys and the Glory Boys: the fly-halves who run, kick and dazzle; the scrum-halves who nip and dart; the wingers who step and glide. These are the players who get the crowd on their feet, who set stadiums abuzz. But they only get to do these things because other, less glorified figures do all of the donkey work. Adam Jones is one such figure. And for a decade he was one of the world's best. On many occasions when George North or Shane Williams was careering under the posts to score a try, and the crowd was engulfed in rapturous joy, Adam Jones would be hauling himself up from the turf, spitting blood and mud and massaging his aching neck. He hadn't scored the try, but more often than not it was his graft and strength which had made it. This is the story of Bomb: the self-effacing manual labourer from the Swansea Valley who traded laying paving slabs for running out in some of the world's most imposing sporting citadels. He rose to the pinnacle of his sport, winning virtually everything there was to be won: Grand Slams, Six Nations Championships, Lions tours, Pro12 titles. In a nation of rugby heroes, Adam Jones has become a legend. Only six Welshmen can say they've won three Grand Slams. He is one of them: not just as a bit-part player but as the beating heart of the most successful squad in Welsh rugby history. His was one of the first names on the team sheet. He was - literally and metaphorically - the cornerstone of this Welsh side. In his autobiography Jones reveals exactly what goes on in the murky depths of the front row: the tricks, the techniques, the physical and psychological warfare and the mental fortitude it takes to endure in one of the hardest positions in one of the world's toughest contact sports. 1.

This thesis elucidates the various intricacies and elements behind the selection process and gives the industry s view of the many aspects of the elements involved e.g. cost, safety etc. The results were obtained via questionnaires and a number of interviews. The thesis provides brief cost comparisons and background to various tunnels around the world. The whole chapter is devoted to the evaluation of the benefits in terms of passenger safety, station layout and environmental impact. As no two construction projects are identical, various conclusions might differ from project to project. Two projects which have been selected are Dublin Metro North and DART Underground which were both planned for the Dublin area. Conclusion chapter summarise findings, objectives and hypothesis of this thesis.

The style of toolmaking was named after Folsom, New Mexico where the first sample was found within the bone structure of a bison in 1927. The points are bifacially worked and have a symmetrical, leaf-like shape with a concave base and wide, shallow grooves running almost the entire length of the point. The edges are finely worked. The characteristic groove, known as fluting, may have served to aid hafting to a wooden spear shaft or dart or perhaps to improve penetration of the target. The fluting may also have been a stylistic element or have had some symbolic purpose. The fluting required great technical ability to effect, and it took archaeologists many years of experimentation to replicate it.

DFW North Station will be a DART light rail station located on Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport property in Grapevine, Texas. It is proposed to serve as a branch of the Orange Line. The station will be a transit hub for regional rail lines on the DART Cotton Belt line. To solve the issue of connecting both segments of commuter rail to the airport terminals, DART will first open the Orange line directly from Belt Line Station to DFW Airport Station in 2013. Phase II, currently unscheduled, will create a branch line to the new DFW North station before terminating at DFW Airport Station.
