Ghost Fleet Awakened Book Excerpt:

Chronicles the history and archaeological study of Lake George, New York’s sunken bateaux of 1758. In Ghost Fleet Awakened, Joseph W. Zarzynski reveals the untold story of a little-recognized sunken fleet of British warships, bateaux, from the French and Indian War (1755–1763). The story begins more than 250 years ago, when bateaux first plied the waters of Lake George, New York. Zarzynski enlightens readers with a history of these utilitarian vessels, considered the most important vessels that transported armies during eighteenth-century wars in North America, and includes their origins and uses. By infusing the book with underwater archaeology doctrine, Zarzynski shows the nautical significance of these colonial craft. In the autumn of 1758, the British command at Lake George made a daring decision to deliberately sink two floating batteries (radeaux), some row galleys and whaleboats, a sloop, and 260 bateaux, thereby placing the warships into wet storage and protecting them from marauding French during the coming winter. In 1759, many submerged boats were raised but some were not. Then, in 1960, two divers rediscovered several sunken bateaux, dubbed the “Ghost Fleet.” These shipwrecks were the focus of underwater archaeological investigations that provided archaeologists with opportunities to gain unprecedented insight into eighteenth-century lifeways. Zarzynski explores and explains shipwreck preservation techniques, the creation of shipwreck parks for scuba enthusiasts, and the many multifaceted programs developed by the nonprofit organization Bateaux Below to help protect these finite cultural treasures. “Zarzynski offers fascinating new research on bateau shipwrecks through the use of manuscripts, period newspaper accounts, and interviews. It is an outstanding piece of research, explaining the chronological history of cultural resource preservation. No other book provides this level of documentation on the role of bateaux during the wars of the eighteenth century.” — Russell P. Bellico, author of Empires in the Mountains: French and Indian War Campaigns in Forts in the Lake Champlain, Lake George, and Hudson River Corridor “This is a major contribution to the field of American history, New York State history, underwater archaeology, and cultural resource management. There is no equivalent book that documents this story.” — Timothy J. Runyan, editor of Ships, Seafaring and Society: Essays in Maritime History

Completion of Hope Book Excerpt:

The Rejuvenation Series was drafted between 2013 and 2015 and comprises four books. While some of the characters, people, and events follow on from book to book, in character they are all different. —Rekindling of Hope (Political novel written in 2013 thinly disguised as a science fiction drama.) —Consolidation of Hope (Pure science fiction novel.) —Fulfilment of Hope (Although nominally a science fiction drama, a significant part of the book was about how to renovate the ecology of a primitive planet.) —Defence of Hope (This book has two timelines, one of which goes into the past using a backdrop of real characters and events dressed up with a fictional narrative, while the other moves into the far future. The timelines regularly intersect, and it is actually a mystery novel in the sense that a perceptive reader might guess before the end what was actually happening. A few clues were scattered through the text.) Completion of Hope Description With four books in the series, Doug decided to set up the stories in two paired texts which fit together naturally, Starting of Hope being the first and Completion of Hope the second. Fulfilment of Hope Following on from Rekindling of Hope and Consolidation of Hope, this science fiction novel describes the settlement of a primitive planet and the subsequent development of a new federation by one of the Shepherd children. In this project, they are assisted by artificial intelligences, which are effectively life forms in their own right. Dr. Katie Shepherd married a soldier called Hans Gretner, and the pair of them prepare to be taken together with about four thousand colonists to a geologically young planet at an enormous distance from Earth. The giant spacecraft which is to carry them is known as Habitat, and its resident artificial intelligence is called Sheila. No trace is to be left on Earth of their final destination, and they will have to take all the fauna and flora required to reseed a planet with them. The Bearing continues to provide considerable help, as the successful creation of this federation is critical to their plans for further developing the galaxy. They are certain that Katie is going to have to overcome huge problems in setting up her federation. This is a book of ecological development, love and war, disaster, and recovery. It completes the trilogy of Rejuvenation books by bringing the story full circle. Defence of Hope Throughout human history, most significant events would have happened through movement of peoples, food and economic pressures, or fundamental religious or political differences. In a few cases, individuals have played starring roles, and their presence or absence made a fundamental change to the flow of history. Defence of Hope combines two storylines in a science fiction format, one of which uses the backdrop of real events and people in the past combined with a fictional narrative to describe some key ‘divertants’. The other storyline moves into the far future, and the two threads regularly intersect. While it is a standalone novel, it uses characters and some of the events of the Rejuvenation Trilogy as a start point. This is actually a mystery novel in the sense that a perceptive reader might guess before the end what is actually happening. A few clues were scattered through the text.

Dismantling Defunct Ships in the Uk Eighteenth Report of Session 2003 2004 Report Together with Formal Minutes Oral and Written Evidence Book Excerpt:

It is estimated that, worldwide, about 700 large commercial vessels have to be scrapped each year, as they reach the end of their working life. Much of the material they are made from can be recycled, but many ships also contain hazardous materials, such as asbestos, PCBs and waste oils, which need to be disposed of safely. The Committee's report considers how defunct ships are dismantled and why most are currently dismantled in developing countries, mostly in Asia; health and safety protection for workers, and environmental protection standards; the international regulatory framework, including legislation such as the Basel Convention and EC regulations, IMO guidelines and enforcement problems; the principles of responsible ship recycling; the Government's approach to ship recycling and a UK ship recycling industry. Findings include that the Government has an important role to play in ensuring this issue receives sufficient international priority, particularly during the UK's forthcoming EU Presidency and chairmanship of the G8; as well at home in helping persuade UK-based shipowners to arrange for their vessels to be disposed of responsibly. As a first step, it should ensure that all naval and other publicly-owned vessels are dismantled to the highest health, safety and environmental standards.
