Radiological Hazard Evaluation--A Critical Review of Present Concepts and a New Approach Thereto; Research and Development Technical Report USNRDL-TR-186. E. L. Alpen.
San Francisco, CA: U. S. Naval Radiological Defense Laboratory, Biology Branch, 1957. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. iii, 35, [1] pages. UNCLASSIFIED. Ink notation and stamps on front cover. Marked for Internal Use Only Not for External Distribution. Transmittal Memorandum laid in. RARE. Seminal Work. The author was later associated with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. This report presents a critical analysis of the current approaches to the problem of estimating radiological effects and then discusses a more unified concept of radiological hazard evaluation which could be applied operationally to the particular situation being considered. An approach to the estimation of radiobiological effects was proposed which eliminated the unwarranted precision suggested in the old formulation and which was readily adaptable as the basis for rendering decision. A system was suggested which tabulated zones of effect considering the present state of knowledge of effects of radiation on man. The surface radiation hazard was similarly discussed and tabulated.

Medical Effects of Ionizing Radiation; Blast Effects: Treatment of DU Injuries. Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute.
Bethesda, MD: Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute, c1998. Presumed First Edition, First issue thus. VHS Tape. 1 VHS/Videotape Cassette with Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFRRI) logo DU is not a health concern unless it enters the body. This VHS is not a numbered course lecture and appears to be supplementary material. It has the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFFRI) logo and the Medical Effects of Ionizing Radiation (MEIR) logo. Acting on the human body, the blast shock waves cause pressure waves through the tissues. These waves mostly damage junctions between tissues of different densities (bone and muscle) or the interface between tissue and air. Lungs and the abdominal cavity, which contain air, are particularly injured. The damage causes severe hemorrhaging or air embolisms, either of which can be rapidly fatal. The overpressure estimated to damage lungs is about 70 kPa. Some eardrums would probably rupture around 22 kPa (0.2 atm) and half would rupture between 90 and 130 kPa (0.9 to 1.2 atm).

Medical Effects of Ionizing Radiation; Ten Seconds that Shook the World, Pre-hospital Response to Radiation Accidents, Hospital Emergency Department Response to Radiation Accidents. Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute.
Bethesda, MD: Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute, c1998. Presumed First Edition, First issue thus. VHS Tape. 1 VHS/Videotape Cassette with Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFRRI) logo This VHS is not a numbered course lecture and appears to be supplementary material. It has the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFFRI) logo and the Medical Effects of Ionizing Radiation (MEIR) logo. "Ten Seconds" was a factual and chronological account of the events preceding the atomic bombing of Hiroshima during World War II. Originally produced as a television special and motion picture in 1963. {may be only an excerpt]. A nuclear and radiation accident is defined by the International Atomic Energy Agency as "an event that has led to significant consequences to people, the environment or the facility." The U.S. military has established a system for mission-specific risk-based dose limits that includes life-saving activities. Patients with medical or traumatic injury who also have whole-body or significant partial-body irradiation (combined injury) have a worse prognosis and will require a higher triage priority.

Aerial Locomotion. With a Few Notes of Progress in the Construction of an Aerodrome; Proceedings of the Washington Academy of Sciences, Vol. VIII, 407-448, Plates IX-XX, March 4, 1907. Alexander Graham Bell.
Washington DC: Washington Academy of Sciences, 1907. Contemporary Reprint of the article from the Proceedings. Wraps. Format is approximately 7.25 inches by 10 inches. Footnotes. Illustrations. Cover has some wear, soiling, tears and chips. Some pages uncut. Alexander Graham Bell (March 3, 1847 – August 2, 1922) was a Scottish-born scientist, inventor, engineer, and innovator who is credited with inventing and patenting the first practical telephone. He also founded the American Telephone and Telegraph Company (AT&T) in 1885. Bell's father, grandfather, and brother had all been associated with work on elocution and speech and both his mother and wife were deaf, profoundly influencing Bell's work. His research on hearing and speech led him to experiment with hearing devices which eventually culminated in Bell being awarded the first U.S. patent for the telephone in 1876. Bell considered his invention an intrusion on his real work as a scientist. Other inventions included work in optical telecommunications, hydrofoils, and aeronautics.

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil: A Savannah Story. John Berendt.
New York: Random House, 1994. Second Printing. Hardcover. 25 cm, 388 pages. Signed by the author. John Berendt (born December 5, 1939) is an American author, known for writing the best-selling non-fiction book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, which was a finalist for the 1995 Pulitzer Prize in General Nonfiction. Berendt published Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil in 1994 and became an overnight success; the book spent a record-breaking 216 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list -— still, to this day, the longest standing best seller of the Times. The story, unsettling and real, broke down the idea of the quintessential phenomenon of a true American city—only to reveal its quirks: its man walking an invisible dog; its voice of the drag queen; a high-society man in its elite community—all that somehow, unravels a murder mystery. Virtually seeming like a novel and reading like a tale, the nonfictional story is about the real-life events surrounding the murder trial of Jim Williams in Savannah, Georgia.

Surgery, Gynecology & Obstetrics, 1956. Reprint. Wraps. This is a reprint from Volume 103, pages 2-6. Color illustrations. References. Stamps and notations on front cover. Minor edge wear on front page. Minor edge tears. James Barrett Brown, MD, (1899-1971) was chairman of Plastic Surgery as the Washington University Medical School in St. Louis from 1955 until 1968. At Washington University, Dr. James Barrett Brown helped introduce the revolutionary concept of using large skin grafts for the treatment of severe burns and described how to make the grafts work. Later, Brown assembled a large team of plastic surgeons to treat wounded veterans returning from World War II, which led to the development of new techniques and strengthened the role of plastic surgeons in reconstruction. The work reported in this article was done in part under the auspices of the Atomic Energy Commission.

The Combined Effects of Ionizing Radiation and High Temperature on the Longevity of the Sprague-Dawley Rat. L. D. Carlson, B. H. Jackson.
Academic Press, Inc. 1959. Reprinted from Radiation Research, Volume 11, No. 4, October, 1959. Wraps. pp. 509-519. Footnotes. Figures. Tables. References. Cover has name stamped and another stamp and ink notations on front. No back cover present. The authors were associated with the Department of Physiology and Biophysics of the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle. Male Sprague-Dawley rats, individually caged, were exposed to low-level irradiation with chronic dosages from a CO-60 source for 16 hours a day. The animals were selected by weight and growth rated and divided into eight groups of 22 rats. With the exception of the relation between 0.60 and 0.28 r/day, the data was statistically significant at the 5% level. It was suggested that the effects of ionizing irradiation interact with the effect of environment in influencing longevity.
