Download and read online Element of Risk in PDF and EPUB Radiation, radioactivity, radon: these are words that, since Hiroshima, the Cold War, and Three Mile Island, have conjured fear and fascination for many Americans. The threat of nuclear war, however, was always abstract at best, and the possibility of a meltdown was seen primarily as a localized catastrophe. Yet the danger of radon--an invisible, odorless gas that could seemingly attack any home and afflict its residents with a deadly cancer--struck home in the 1980s when whole neighborhoods were deemed unsafe and homeowners were forced to relocate, often at great expense. But how much of a threat does radon really pose to Americans? Is the government's aggressive policy toward this "silent killer" warranted? Indeed, is there a legitimate threat at all? These are the important questions Leonard A. Cole asks in this provocative and fascinating new book, and his answers are ones that all homeowners will want to understand. In clear, non-technical language, Cole dispels many of the myths surrounding radon as he makes recommendations for a coherent, reasonable environmental policy toward what is, certainly, a dangerous gas. But at what levels does radon become a health problem? From all the alarmist headlines ("Major Radon Peril Is Declared By U.S." screamed the New York Times in 1988), average Americans would never know that the threat of radon is much debated, among scientists as well as among government officials. They would never know that numerous European countries--with advanced environmental policies--see the radon levels found in homes and apartments as much less of a danger than we do. And they would never know that not even a single lung cancer death can be directly attributed to a radon-contaminated environment. As he carefully traces the development of the U.S.indoor radon policy, Cole illuminates the many scientific uncertainties that lie behind it, and challenges EPA's risk-cost assessment of radon levels. He shows, too, that no epidemiological study has confirmed that homeowners are at great risk, and exposes those who stand to gain from the policy decisions made in Washington. Since it is not caused by any industry, radon has been a politically convenient issue. Under the Reagan administration, for example, an aggressive radon policy proved an easy way to challenge the popular perception of an anti-environmental president. In the end, Cole convincingly argues for less strict radon regulations, and maintains that the average citizen must be involved in the decision-making process, and must be allowed to exercise her own informed judgment. Thoughtful and timely, Element of Risk illuminates one of the most important public policy issues of our time. It is a book homeowners and taxpayers, scientists and policymakers, will find essential reading.
Download and read online Maryland Basketball in PDF and EPUB "On March 3, 2002, the Maryland Terrapins walked off the court at Cole Field House for the last time - leaving as the Atlantic Coast Conference regular season champions. They had just defeated the Virginia Cavaliers, the same opponent they had beaten 47 years earlier in the first game played at what became one of college basketball's truly storied arenas. As the Terps settle in to their new home, the state-of-the-art Comcast Center, Paul McMullen recalls in Maryland Basketball the colorful, exciting, tragic, and triumphant events of 1955 to 2002: the Cole Field House era." "McMullen follows the downs and ups of the basketball program off the court, from recruiting violations and the death of Len Bias to the post-collegiate successes - on and off the court - of so many Terps. Between the Eisenhower years and the resounding championship season of 2001-2002, Cole Field House was the scene of some of college basketball's most exhilarating games and the performances of many outstanding players and coaches. Maryland Basketball gives fans the chance to relive them all."--Jacket.
