Set mainly in the psychologically insulated communities of expatriate teachers in Osaka, Japan, these fourteen stories seek to understand issues of national or personal honour, and the problematic importance of family. Heighton also examines subtly related themes, like death, age, marriage, war and poetry, while hinting at autobiography throughout. Sophisticated, passionate and elegantly told, this collection, first published in 1992, was nominated for the 1992 Ontario Trillium Book Award and brought Steven Heighton much national acclaim. From the Trade Paperback edition.

How a small group of New York biologists brought the peregrine falcon and bald eagle back from the brink of extinction. In the late 1970s, the bald eagle and the peregrine falcon were heading toward extinction, victims of the combined threats of DDT, habitat loss, and lax regulation. Flight Paths tells the story of how a small group of New York biologists raced against nature’s clock to bring these two beloved birds back from the brink in record-setting numbers. In a narrative that reads like a suspense tale, Darryl McGrath documents both rescue projects in never-before-published detail. At Cornell University, a team of scientists worked to crack the problem of how to breed peregrine falcons in captivity and then restore them to the wild. Meanwhile, two young, untested biologists tackled the overwhelming assignment of rebuilding the bald eagle population from the state’s last nesting pair, one of whom (the female) was sterile. McGrath interweaves this dramatic retelling with contemporary accounts of four at-risk species: the short-eared owl, the common loon, the Bicknell’s thrush, and the piping plover. She worked alongside biologists as they studied these elusive subjects in the Northeast’s most remote regions, and the result is a story that combines vivid narrative with accessible science and is as much a tribute to these experts as it is a call to action for threatened birds. Readers are taken to a snow-covered meadow as an owl hunts her prey, a loon family’s secluded pond, an eagle nest above the Hudson River, and a mountaintop at dusk in search of the Bicknell’s thrush, one of the planet’s rarest birds. Combining a little-known chapter of New York’s natural history with a deeply personal account of a lifelong devotion to birds, Flight Paths is not only a story of our rapidly changing environment and a tribute to some of New York’s most heroic biologists, but also a captivating read for anyone who has ever thrilled to the sight of a rare bird. “In Flight Paths Darryl McGrath weaves together science, politics, personal struggle, and the emotional gravity of permanent loss into poignant tales of survival. She reminds us that our actions and determination can have a huge impact on birds and other wildlife that make their homes in the Adirondack Park. She brings a fresh perspective to modern conservation efforts and reminds us why birds matter in our everyday lives. Anyone who loves the Adirondack Park, or just appreciates wild places, will enjoy reading this book.” — William C. Janeway, Executive Director, Adirondack Council “Not since David R. Zimmerman’s To Save a Bird in Peril has there been a popular book on rare and endangered birds so well researched and documented as this one. McGrath writes the story of the remarkable restoration of our national bird in New York, a saga that is largely the story of a few unique people who devoted their lives to this endeavor. She writes similar stories about the peregrine falcon, the common loon, the Bicknell’s thrush, and the short-eared owl, emphasizing the special problems and solutions for each species. Anyone interested in the details of what it takes to save rare or endangered species from extinction should read this sympathetic and well-written book.” — Tom J. Cade, Founding Chairman and Director, The Peregrine Fund “In Flight Paths, Darryl McGrath tells the compelling story of New York’s legacy as a national and international innovator in modern bird conservation. In an engaging style that often reads more like a novel than typical historical reporting, she focuses on the successful efforts to save the peregrine falcon and bald eagle from extinction in the Lower 48 states. Her conversations and field experience with the dedicated scientists and conservationists whose tireless efforts brought these magnificent birds back from the brink bring a rare depth and richness to the narrative. The pioneering work described in this well-told tale give some hope that when courageous and innovative scientists simply refuse to take ‘no’ for an answer, seemingly intractable problems will yield.” — Kenneth P. Able, editor of Gatherings of Angels: Migrating Birds and Their Ecology

"Not a reference tool, this unique work is a teaching-learning guide to understanding the Fourth Gospel. The focus is on showing how rather than on telling. Thirty-five ""Flight Paths,"" followed by leading questions and statements, help both faculty and students to see as well as read how the Evangelist plotted his itinerary: adopting, adapting, and arranging the texts (both biblical and extra-biblical) that constituted his horizon. Both visually and verbally, Lemcio demonstrates how, with the benefit of St. John's eagle eye, one might survey and ""spy"" the territory of the text. With this comes the knowledge of the only true God and Jesus whom he had sent--which is eternal life (17:3)."

Characteristics of six types of flight paths for the deceleration from circular and supercircular speeds are developed in closed form. The heating rate, heat input per square foot obtained from an integration over the flight path, the total heat vehicle, and the flight-path histories in terms of path angle, altitude, life coefficient, net acceleration, angle of attack and Reynolds number are discussed as a function of type of flight plan, initial net accelertion, and initial velocity. A flight plan with essentially a point landing capability is suggested. (Author).

A Flight Path Generator is defined as the module of an automated Air Traffic Control system which plans aircraft trajectories in the terminal area with respect to operational constraints. The flight path plans have to be feasible and must not violate separation criteria. The problem of terminal area trajectory planning is structured by putting the emphasis on knowledge representation and air-space organization. A welldefined and expressive semantics relying on the use of flexible patterns is designed to represent aircraft motion and flight paths. These patterns are defined so as to minimize the need for replanning and to smoothly accommodate operational deviations. Flight paths are specified by an accumulation of constraints. A parallel, asynchronous implementation of a computational model based on the propagation of constraints provides mechanisms to efficiently build feasible flight path plans. A methodology for a fast and robust conflict detection between flight path plans is introduced. It is based on a cascaded filtering of the stream of feasible flight paths and combines the benefits of a symbolic representation and of numerical computation with a high degree of parallelism. The Flight Path Generator is designed with the goal of implementing a portable and evolving tool which could be inserted in controllers' routine with minimum disruption of present procedures. Eventually, a model of aircraft interaction provides a framework to rethink the notion of Separation Standards.

Optimal control theory and the energy-state approximation are used to determine the thrust, altitude, and bank angle programs for minimum-time flight paths of a supersonic aircraft from an initial energy, heading, and horizontal position to a specified final energy, heading, and point or line in a horizontal plane. Constraints on maximum and minimum thrust, stall angle-of-attack, maximum Mach number, maximum dynamic pressure, and maximum normal load factor are considered. The problem is restricted to those cases in which the flight path is long enough that the maximum Mach number is reached during the flight. Numerical results are presented for a typical supersonic aircraft capable of Mach 2.0 flight. (Author).

On the 120th anniversary of Amelia Earhart's birth and the 80th anniversary of her disappearance, award-winning poet, Heidi Greco revitalizes what we know about the iconic aviator through uplifting and historically mesmerizing verse. If most people were asked what they know about Amelia Earhart, they'd probably respond with something like "Wasn't she that pilot who went missing when she tried to fly around the world?" Although that much is true, Earhart was so much more. She was a feminist at a time when women were just beginning to make inroads towards equality. She was a best-selling author who made appearances and speeches that inspired many. In addition, she was a pacifist, a poet, a punster - the list could go on. She was ahead of her time in so many ways, right down to the no-nonsense clothes she wore (many of them fashioned after her own designs). To this day, her disappearance is enshrouded in mystery, with many questions remaining. Was she on a secret mission, spying for her country? Was she captured by the Japanese and held in a prison camp? Or did she and her navigator simply crash and die? The poems in this collection, presented as if written by Earhart herself, consider some of the many theories that attempt to explain her disappearance. Through logbook entries, recollections and letters, the work explores some of the various flightpaths she may have taken.
