When British geologists discover the world's largest oil reserves under the desolate, icy tundra of Antarctica, Britain and Chile form a top-secret alliance for control of petroleum resources that will rival the economic power of OPEC. But when their discovery is uncovered by an Argentinean intelligence officer, a surprise-attack against a secret British outpost in Antarctica triggers a war. Britain and Chile are in a military standoff against Venezuela and Argentina, and when the war escalates, Britain asks America for help. For two couples separated by the battle, the outcome will be either love reunited or devastating heartbreak. For a young British boy living with his mother in London, his father’s life is on the line. And for Pete Miranda, an American sub commander detailed on a special military assignment to his father's homeland of Chile, will his fate be a crushing death under the icy-cold waters of the Antarctic Ocean, or a future of life, light, and a second chance for love?

The Colored Hockey League of the Maritimes was formed in 1895 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Comprised of the sons and the grandsons of runaway American slaves, the league helped pioneer the sport of ice hockey, changing this winter game from the primitive "gentleman's past-time" of the Nineteenth Century to the to the modern fast moving game of today. In an era when many believed Blacks could not endure cold, possessed ankles too weak to effectively skate, and lacked the intelligence for organized sport, these men defied the established myths. The Colored League was one of the most complex sports organizations ever created and was lead by Baptist ministers and church laymen. Natural leaders and proponents of Black Pride, these men represented a concept in spots never before seen. Their rule book was The Bible. Their game book, the coded words and oral history derived from the experiences of American slavery and the Underground Railroad. Their strategy, the principles and teachings of American Black leader Booker T. Washington (the founder of the Tuskegee Institute) and a believer in the concept of racial equality through racial separation. Twenty-five years before the Negro Baseball Leagues in the United States, and twenty-two years before the birth of the National Hockey League, the Colored League would emerge as a premier force in Canadian hockey and supply the resilience necessary to preserve a unique culture which exists to this day. Unfortunately their contributions were conveniently ignored, or simply stolen, as White teams and hockey officials, influenced by the Black league, copied elements of the Black style or sought to take self-credit for Black hockey innovations. Seven years of research has gone into this book. This is the first book ever written on the Colored Hockey League of the Maritimes.

Under the NCHRP 06-17 project, the research team surveyed snow and ice control organizations in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia to determine the current trends in performance measurement. The team also inquired about the methods used in developing these programs in order to determine a practical, user friendly method to assist snow and ice control managers in developing a performance measurement system that uses traditional and nontraditional performance indicators and measurement issues. To achieve the project objectives, the researchers issued a survey to snow and ice control agencies throughout North America, Europe, and Asia to obtain data of the performance indicators and measures used, if any, by these agencies. The identified performance indicators and measures were then categorized, defined, and assessed for their usefulness. A process was then developed to assist snow and ice control operations managers in preparing a customer-focused, environmentally friendly performance measurement program.

A research project was initiated to evaluate the performance and cost effectiveness of a proprietary, pre-blended, roadway-deicing chemical on New Hampshire highways. The evaluated material is a patented blend of sodium chloride, liquid magnesium chloride, and cane molasses. The manufacturer reported that the treated salt provided value greater than that of conventional sodium chloride because a smaller quantity was needed to obtain the same result. This report documents the New Hampshire Department of Transportation's (NHDOT) evaluation of the treated salt material and provides a cost comparison between the test material and straight sodium chloride under normal snow removal and ice control conditions during the 2003- 2004 winter season. Two NHDOT-maintained roadways were chosen for the evaluation. Each test site was divided into a test section that was treated with the test material, and a control section that was treated with conventional sodium chloride. Both materials were applied to the roadway during normal snow removal operations by the same operators using the same NHDOT plow trucks equipped with conventional sand/salt spreader bodies. Standard NHDOT snow removal and ice control procedures were followed. Test sections were rotated on a monthly basis to minimize variability. Although the quantity of treated salt required during the study was less than that of the straight sodium chloride, the reduction of material was not enough to offset the higher unit cost of the treated salt. On average, the treated salt cost 27 percent more to use than sodium chloride during the test period. It is noted that subsequent to the completion of the field phase of this project, the manufacturer reportedly reformulated the product and released what is referred to as an enhanced deicer. It is believed that the product evaluated during this research is no longer marketed.
