The Disposable American: Layoffs and Their Consequences is a 2006 book written by New York Times reporter Louis Uchitelle, and it is his first. It is published by Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. The book is concerned with the far reaching layoffs occurring in the United States, the damage he perceives this causes the country, and the psychological harm he perceives dealt to workers by this phenomenon.[1][2][3][4] According to the book’s author, Louis Uchitelle, the waves of major layoffs are injurious to the United States in three key areas: the phenomenon disadvantages companies leaving them unable to compete, it has removed numerous middle class jobs, and it disadvantages former middle class workers who are often forced to work lower paying jobs.[2][3]

Gyron

This article is about the heraldic element. For the jet engine, see de Havilland Gyron.

Example of a gyron

Gyronny of eight or and sable

A gyron is a triangular heraldic ordinary having an angle at the fess point and the opposite side at the edge of the escutcheon. A shield divided into gyrons is called gyronny, the default is typically of eight if no number of gyrons is specified. The word gyron is derived from Old French giron, meaning ‘gusset’.[1] Another term for a single gyron is esquire.[2]
The gyron rarely appears singly, but as a variation of the field, gyronny coats appear frequently. These most often appear as eight roughly equal parts, but occasionally a coat gyronny of six, ten, twelve or more parts may be specified.[3]

GRB 060729 was a gamma-ray burst that was first observed on 29 July 2006. It is likely the signal of a type Ic supernova—the core collapse of a massive star.[1] It was also notable for its extraordinarily long X-ray afterglow, detectable 642 days (nearly two years) after the original event.[2] The event was remote, with a redshift of 0.54.[1]

“The Crossing” is the forty-fourth episode of the television series Star Trek: Enterprise, the eighteenth of the second season.
Non-corporeal aliens attempt to take over the Earth starship Enterprise.
Plot[edit]
While at warp speed, a huge alien vessel overtakes and swallows Enterprise, disabling the ship’s engines and weapons. When the scanners register neither the alien ship nor its numerous energy-wisp-like non-corporeal beings, Captain Archer takes Lieutenant Reed and Commander Tucker on an away mission to the interior. While EV Tucker is visibly “entered” by one of the beings before being returned to his normal state. Doctor Phlox’s examination, however, reveals no lingering effects.
Later, Tucker is possessed again, and is soon located in the mess hall enjoying the simple pleasures of food. When asked, the alien says that they are explorers who merely want to experience the tangible nature of the corporeal state they long evolved from. In exchange, the crew would be permitted to have out of body experiences. Archer, dou

History[edit]
Founding[edit]
In the early 1960s, the Reverend Michael Baughen (who later became Anglican Bishop of Chester) was concerned about the declining popularity of traditional hymns, and brought together a few friends to see what might be done about it. Some were composers, others lyricists. Over a long period this group worked together and wrote a collection of 150 new songs, entitled Youth Praise. The Church Pastoral Aid Society (a long-established English home missionary society) accepted Youth Praise and, in March 1966, published it. Within a short time it became a best-seller among its kind. Three years later the CPAS published Youth Praise 2.
By 1966 the central group comprised Michael Baughen, Richard Bewes, Christopher Collins, Christopher Idle, Edward Shirras, Michael Saward, James Seddon, Norman Warren, David Wilson and Michael Perry.
In 1980, the group became a limited liability company with the title Jubilate Hymns Ltd.[1]
In the United States[edit]
George Shorney of Hope Publishing in Carol Stream, Illinois, enlisted the independent cooperation, first of Timothy Dudley-Smith and then of the extended group. As a result of his effort The Jubilate Group and its works have found their way into the American hymnals Worship, Rejoice in the Lord, The Hymnal 1982, Psalter Hymnal, The Worshiping Church, The Baptist Hymnal, Christian Worship, Trinity Hymnal and others. Similarly, many American hymns have emerged in Jubilate Group publications.
