Book Summary:

A pilot retires after 38 years from the world's largest oil company. He accepts a job in another country halfway around the world. His experience flying the cream of business jets is just what his new employer is looking for. He finds it necessary to adapt to his new environment and new associates. The new employer is General Arab Medical Service who supplies workers for the Saudi Arabian Military service. The job entails flying not only high ranking military, medical evacuation, but also members of the Royal Family. The missions are with a mixed crew of copilots, nurses/hostess, doctors, and engineers. Their nationalities are from all over the world. You need to know that in aviation, the world language is English. The mixup due to language difficulties are mostly humorous, but in at least one case almost deadly. A young man from Texas can be surprised from what he finds the people and customs are in New York on his first visit. A young man from New York can find the people and customs in Texas as surprising. A friend and I were standing on a sidewalk looking in a show window in Wichita Falls, Texas when a lady got out of her car and approached us. "Young man can I ask you a question?" "Why yes Mam, what is it." She pointed at my feet, "Don't those things hurt you're feet?" She was asking about the boots I was wearing. "Why no Mam they don't" She turned with look of not understanding and went back to her car which I noticed was wearing Ohio license plates. That was in 1942 and I still remember what my friend and I talked about later. "You reckon that lady never saw cowboy boots before?" "I don't know. Maybe she never saw a horse before." So many years later the same fellow sees people and customs that are completely strange. They speak English, and eat with a knife and fork (most do) and they want to imitate the western world very much. Of course I'm speaking of those that I came in personal contact with. As a reader you must remember their country was only born in 1932. It had no means of entering seriously into world commerce until oil was discovered. Then suddenly they as a country became very rich almost over night. The King made decisions without the help of a Legislature. So, he decided where the money went. The Royal Family got an early cut and infrastructure was on the early list as well. If there was a need for a road, he just told some contractor to build the road, "And make it out of concrete. That asphalt stuff just melts and runs away over here in the desert." Well, if you have roads then you need cars, so the King calls Japan and says, "Send me over a boat load of those little pickups you make." "Well, ok your Highness. What color do you want." "I don't know, just mix them up, Ok?" The Japanese boat arrived and the King tried to give them to the Bedouins from the desert. The nomads only accepted the white ones, all other colors were sent back to Japan. Everyone know that dark colors are no good in the heat. Do you find that humorous? Well, I do. But what do you expect? A tall apartment building in downtown Riyadh is standing empty on the day of my arrival and on the day of my departure. The King had it built for the Bedouins to use . . . for free. The occasion of celebrating the gift from the King, the Bedouins asked, "Where do we put our camels and goats?" "Well, you won't need them here." The gift was rejected straight-away (as the Brits say). Do you find that interesting? Well, I do. How about this. I asked one of my Saudi copilots, "What is your goal?" "What do you mean?" "I mean what are you working for. What do you hope for in the future?" "Oh, I see what you mean. Well, I'm saving my money to buy a camel and move out on the desert." "You mean you would leave your job in aviation, living in a house with indoor plumbing, electricity, and air conditioning to move into a tent in the desert?" "Sure, what's wrong with that?" Well, the time

Book Summary:

With unprecedented attention on global change, the current debate revolves around the availability and sustainability of natural resources and how to achieve equilibrium between what society demands from natural environments and what the natural resource base can provide. A full understanding of the range of issues, from the consequences of the changing resource bases to the degradation of ecological integrity and the sustainability of life, is crucial to the process of developing solutions to this complex challenge. Authored by world-class scientists and scholars, The Encyclopedia of Natural Resources provides an authoritative reference on a broad spectrum of topics such as the forcing factors and habitats of life; their histories, current status, and future trends; and their societal connections, economic values, and management. The content presents state-of-the-art science and technology development and perspectives of resource management. Written and designed with a broad audience in mind, the entries clearly elucidate the issues for readers at all levels without sacrificing the scientific rigor required by professionals in the field. Volume I – Land includes 98 entries that cover the topical areas of renewable and nonrenewable natural resources such as forest and vegetative; soil; terrestrial coastal and inland wetlands; landscape structure and function and change; biological diversity; ecosystem services, protected areas, and management; natural resource economics; and resource security and sustainability. Natural resources represent such a broad scope of complex and challenging topics that a reference book must cover a vast number of subjects in order to be titled an encyclopedia. The Encyclopedia of Natural Resources does just that. The topics covered help you face current and future issues in the maintenance of clean air and water as well as the preservation of land resources and native biodiversity.

Book Summary:

Ecocritical Approaches to Literature in French applies the methods of ecocritical inquiry to French literature. To date, there is very little ecocritical scholarship on French-language literature and, indeed, very little on any non-Anglophone literature. This collection was created with two audiences in mind: it introduces an ecocritical perspective for readers of French literature, and it familiarizes ecocritics with literature in French. This collection will be a useful resource to scholars of French and Francophone literature, and of ecocriticism.
