These calculations are crap. Even the calculation to weight up is crap. It just says how a lot of sacks of barite to throw. Well latest time I checked they create 50 lb bags and 100 lb bags. They also create bar hoppers. Place it in lbs. And pump output is 0.000243* liner ID squared* stroke inches* eff%. Everything I've used on this application is useless. Makes no sense.
Oilfield Survival Tutorial will be standard material for people who work in the industry. It's a real "Survival Guide," with layers of information. Love the book's format - it helps deliver key points and is filled with memorable stories designed to illustrate/underscore those 's about time someone in the oil and gas industry wrote a book like this. Cash well spent.
Amazing narrative on some of the most tragic safety incidences in the industry. Several case studies and scenarios based on experience data provided from freedom of info act add to books credibility. Well referenced material. More fact than opinion. Author has a amazing grasp of field and office operations and politics. Amazing representation and history of the state of the oil field safety culture. Amazing culmination of referenced material and narrative from a true fracker.
Perfect read! Unbelievable info in here for the oilfield rookie, or a amazing refresher for those of us who've been around awhile. A lot of examples of true globe tragedies that we can all learn from and lessons to apply in our own operations. I hope oilfield service and E&P companies add this as a mandatory read for their fresh hires. So a lot of accidents are easily avoidable as evidenced in this book. The author was able to create this informative and enjoyable at the same time. It does not read like a text book or a how-to guide, reads like a true book!
This book is a must read for beginners and veterans in the oil and gas industry. Much knowledge can be gained from the detailed accounts, failures, and successes of an ever changing, dynamic field of employment! It is written in a captivating way, and I couldn't place it down. I will personally benefit from it, for the rest of my career !
This is a amazing book to read for all, but especially for those in the field of petroleum, engineering, and safety. I love how the books reflects on true life incidents and highlights safety as a priority. This book should be recommended as a standard book for Universities and Companies that have a focus on safety because lives may be saved by just reading this book.
Amazing Book! My thanks go out to the author for writing this! Its well written and full of applicable information. Ive worked with the majors and the independents and have experienced both sides of "safety programs". I have no doubt that I will use much of the info in the years to come. This book helps to provide a small perspective as far as safety is concerned. Its also quite funny! Company names and company MENs names have been changed in clever ways. AND tagged "something" high up hole days after running an RBP....lets beat on it!!!!..........classic! This should be needed reading for everyone in this industry. Its simple to follow and fairly easy to understand. Thanks again Matthew!
The other reviewers on this page must have a issue with the royalties to The Drifters themselves. For all intents and purposes, the casual listener only cares about the music, and what you obtain on this compilation is the best sounding remastered versions of On Broadway, This Magic Moment, Under the Boardwalk, Save the latest Dance for Me, and Up on the Roof, as of July 2010. Check out the song samples and compare.And by the way, none of these songs have been re-recorded, like the other compilations listed for The Drifters (i.e. Rhino's Very Best Of).
Between the late 50's and the early 60's the Drifters created most of their hits and they had Ben E. King in those years. This CD is that magical group of guys singing the very songs you remember. Obtain this factoid: by 1990 the Drifters had gone through more than 80 various singers, and they had lost Ben by 1962 if not earlier. Any song after that original group will not be the same as you heard on the radio, the same as created their name famous. In fact there became amongst those 80 various players at least two various sets of Drifters, one in Canada, the other in the US. One of them just called "the Drifters," and the other one called "the Original Drifters" (the latter of which might have had a couple of the original guys in it), but as I said, after about 1962 the real Drifters were no more and would never to be again. There were some reunion tours in the 1980's where maybe three of the original four toured, but they never had Ben again as Ben had gone on to have hits as a soloist, perhaps none better than "Stand By Me" which set some records in the record business. As of this writing Ben still lives and has appeared on Letterman and other dozens shows.
Why settle for such a skimpy collection when Rhino's "very Best of..." is available at the same and has more tracks. Better still, add just a few more dollars and obtain one of Rhino's 2-CD Drifters anthologies (one is pre-1959, the other post-1959). There is no need to reward corporate greed by buying this CD.
I created the mistake of picking up this recording myself, without realizing that there are quite a few other compilations available, a couple of them considerably better than this one. And it is short, as other reviewers have mentioned - 12 songs, 31 mins r what is probably the best single-disc compilation of songs by The Drifters, I recommend:The Very Best of The Drifters - 16 songs, including ALL of the 12 songs on this Essentials CD, plus When My Small Girl is Smiling, I'll Take You Home, I've Got Sand in My Shoes, and Saturday Night at the Movies. It's issued by Atlantic/Rhino, just as this Essentials CD, and with a amazing booklet that provides a nice essay on The Drifters and also gives, for each song on the album, the original release info as well as where it charted as a single. (This CD is also shorter than a lot of sold these days, at 41 mins total, but it still is the best single disc collection that I am aware of).The Very Best CD above is also less expensive on Amazon at the show time.If you really wish an perfect collection of melody from The Drifters, then this two-disc collection is really the method to go, with 40 songs altogether, 1 hr 42 mins of amazing music:The Drifters - All-Time Greatest Hits & More: 1959-1965Also I would point out that care should be taken regarding this All-Time Greatest Hits CD - if purchased from Amazon you will keep a CD-R re-pressing of the CD, manufactured on demand. This may be fine for a lot of people, but it is not very obvious on the product page that you will not keep the original CD as issued by Atlantic/Rhino. CD's purchased from third-party sellers are probably the true deal, but again I would be careful in any of these collections, the melody is great, just know that it is all as originally released and played on the radio in the 1960's -- very short songs, at most three mins but quite a few are not much longer than two mins each. That's the method they were recorded in those days, because that's how the radio stations wanted them.
One of a kind melodic soul melody group with memorable tunes like"Under the Boardwalk".This is right along the amazing R&B songs of all time.I believe this band was an inspiration to Gladys Knight and the Pips and other melody of that genre.A must for any listener of different amazing music.
Arduino is not a fresh child in the block, and a lot of things are written about it, but you can be sure that not everything written is useful. With this book Francis Perea will support you if you are fresh to microcontrolers or you just wish to have a nice reference around. The autor knows how to focus on the procedure and the key facts that you have to understand to hold you improving your skills about Arduino. He will tutorial you in a series of step-by-step assemblies using most common components and with a very well design path to Arduino Knowledge. Definitely a must read and a must have reference book about Arduino.
There seems to be some disagreement on the format of this book. The author chose to show the info in a very stodgy, rigid, question and respond style of format. As a reader (or a student..) you will either like this approach....or not. I can see both sides of this disagreement....the material is presented very factually and with supporting documentation, but the 'answers' to the questions don't let for much discussion. While very much 'on point' there is very small room for any sort of diversion which would add to the usefulness of the book. The material is presented under major subject headings which makes it somewhat usable, although I will admit that locating specific info can be a bit tiresome.I can search no major disagreement with the info as presented. It is a fairly thorough walk (trudge..???) through the varied subjects that surround welding. I found the material informative and the photos quite clear in their stated purpose. There are no color photos depicted, but the black/white and line drawings appear very well done. The subject headings seem well thought out and the material presented logically. So, like I said, no major faults as far as the material goes. But, therein lies some of the problem. Looking for something specific can be a major exercise and in fact, the material may not be adequately covered. This because the 'answers' are specific to very specific questions....so what do you do if the info you need is related but not exactly as depicted in the 'question'??? I will tell you what to do.....Look somewhere else!!There are a couple of saving graces to the book. One is the more than adequate glossary. It is well done and seems quite complete. There is also an index which DOES save you a small effort when trying to look something up...although it is only about six pages long...so it's not terribly complete. And, cross-referencing is almost , three stars for 'WELDING ESSENTIALS' because it is just a small too obtuse. The inherent issues with this style of format are hard to overcome in a READABLE, quality book. Would not recommend this as a solo for a welding primer, although as an adjunct piece it is really quite amazing and has an abundance of info on the individual topics that are covered. I am going to hold it and read it again (and probably again!!..). Lots of useful information, just hard to dig through. After a thorough second reading, it may come up to four stars (It's close!!..)
I was recently on a committee preparing an ACC report on textbooks for young or fresh Cardiology practitioners, and older autodidacts brushing up on the recent science for a career change or advance. As a technical editor and volunteer at preptorial dot org, I prepare the exam questions both for their try banks, and the actual professional exams for credentialing and CME's/ CPE'e standards we used were completeness, readability, level, relevance to exams, digital/web resources and price/value. Out of 22 texts and books evaluated, 4 got 10 stars (the equivalent of Amazon's 5 stars):--Chizner: Clinical Cardiology Created Ridiculously Easy (Edition 4) (Medmaster Ridiculously Simple)--Topol: The Topol Solution: Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, Third Edition with DVD, Plus Integrated Content Www service (Topol,Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine)--Chatterjee: Cardiology: An Illustrated Textbook (2 Volume set)--Holler: Cardiology EssentialsFirst, stats:Chizner: $20, 2014, 365 pages, Not an Illustrated textTopol: $240 (but $6 US used), 2006, 1,600 pages, IllustratedChatterjee: $150, 2012, Two volumes (2,600 pages), Highly IllustratedHoller: $52, 2007, 284 pages, Some illustration, PA oriented, some $30 usedDifferences and reasons for high ratings: Chizner is the most up to date, has the highest cost/benefit ratio, and is very technical, packed with info and fine print, but not illustrated. This is ideal for the nurse/ PA/ Hospitalist going INTO Card, not just brushing up. Numerous up to date web resources and the authors answer quickly to ol is older and originally very expensive, but also has numerous illustrations, web references that are mostly up to date even now, and is extremely comprehensive with a non intimidating writing style. The true value is that it is now available for under $10 US from a lot of sources, which is extreme value for content. This still is one of five top picks for Card programs at med schools, and a top pick for library specialty collections at schools and hospitals.Holler is specific for PA's and really gets down to the bedside nitty gritty, as does Chizner--very true world, although far less technical than Chizner. If you're a math wiz, go with Chizner, if you love patient interaction but also are a tech, Holler is e best of breed, but relatively expensive, is Chatterjee. This is now the number one choice for Card classes as well as residents in med schools and teaching hospitals. The price/value is the highest for relevance, with thousands of pages and illustrations, and voted the best teaching/writing style of ANY technical textbook in med, not just Card! Even valuable used, you will rarely search this, with CD, at deep oice depends on your objectives. Comprehensive knowledge: Chatterjee/Topol; Deep science: both of those plus Chizner; PA/brush up, try prep: Chizner, with some Holler. PA/Nurse/Hospitalist: Holler specializes and shines here, but Chizner also is outstanding, even though it is a deep read with lots of math and science.Tip: visit the links above and do a comparative "look inside" if you're unsure of level. As far as statistics, Chizner wins, but that is generally a function.If you are doing self study, sorry about this due to price, but Chatterjee is unequalled for both explanatory power and illustrations, with less of a need for an instructor. To create this list, all four have to have state of the art digital resources. Enjoy! Email or comment if you have specific questions, I've got all four right here, along with 20+ others...If you're a Card book author, and your book isn't on this list, it might not have been evaluated in this exercise, email and I'll contain it on the panel.
Description of cuts on CD was totally misleading. Bought specifically for the complete ver of "Mighty Love". When I received the CD, it was Mighty Love, PT. 1... This was NOT created clear prior to purchase. If you've already got The Spinners in your collection, don't bother to extend it to keep Part 2 of "Mighty Love". You won't obtain it.
If you've never used Linux and don't know where to begin id recommend this book for sure! Its enough to dip your toes in and hold you interested but not overly in depth. The book wont necessarily provide any high level explanations for most things, but its enough to obtain someone curios to look into a specific topic similar to Linux more. I had to this for class and I thoroughly enjoyed its price, and its content!
Amazing app. Related options to Articulation Station on iTunes, but much more cheaper. And the fact that it has extra activities like Search the Sound and Sound hunt (compared to Articulation Station), that makes it look even more cool versus what we for it.
This application is just what we were looking for. My daughter has an articulation problem. She fell in love with the application immediately! She can record her pronunciation of the sounds, words and phrases and play it back, that's my favorite feature. The visual aids are very appealing and well thought out. Worth the investment.
Arduino is a fresh globe for me !! I came to this book through the experience of their well-known authors in the field and to learn from scratch. I have a globe of possibilities that can go through the clear examples of each and every one of its possibilities . I am getting interesting results in teaching with students in my class. It is a handy reference to complete and acquire a amazing knowledge of electronics and immediate implementation. Reading and recommended .
I like the short Biblical lessons that can be used with or without the LIFE ESSENTIALS BIBLE ( Which has barcodes through out the BIBLE that you can scan to directly take you to a video on YouTube about the subject it is near) and not to long in length which helps me remember more easily
