5. Water: Shared Ownership

Slice ePub April 30, 2014


States neighboring Texas claim ownership of their surface water and groundwater. The states share surface water, from major boundary rivers to hundreds of streams and creeks. The Red River and the Sabine River form part of our boundaries with Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana. Texas shares transboundary aquifers with New Mexico, and the Rio Grande springs from Colorado and New Mexico headwaters. In any dispute between states over surface water, the only court with jurisdiction is the United States Supreme Court.


To date there have been few disputes with our neighboring states other than some boundary disputes with Oklahoma as the Red River meanders—disputes concerning oil and gas reserve locations. The Sabine River between Texas and Louisiana is located in the wet area of the state in relation to rainfall, so the potential for disputes over water issues is lessened. However, the Sabine springs from headwaters in Texas, and any diversion of Sabine flow would certainly concern Louisiana, as any diversion of the Sabine on the Louisiana side would Texas. The Canadian River flows through the Texas Panhandle from New Mexico through a large part of Oklahoma. Any diversions by New Mexico and/or Texas concern Oklahoma. In the early twentieth century the Elephant Butte Reservoir on the Rio Grande caused quite a debate, but Texas and New Mexico came to agreement and the reservoir was built.

II. Background

This part explains the history and nature of JavaScript. It provides a broad first look at the language and explains the context in which it exists (without going too much into technical details).

This part is not required reading; you will be able to understand the rest of the book without having read it.

There are many programming languages out there. Why should you use JavaScript? This chapter looks at seven aspects that are important when you are choosing a programming language and argues that JavaScript does well overall:

JavaScript is arguably the most open programming language there is: ECMA-262, its specification, is an ISO standard. That specification is closely followed by many implementations from independent parties. Some of those implementations are open source. Furthermore, the evolution of the language is handled by TC39, a committee comprising several companies, including all major browser vendors. Many of those companies are normally competitors, but they work together for the benefit of the language.

Belleview Biltmore Resort and Spa


A majestic hotel built on a high bluff overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, the aristocratic Biltmore is even more splendid today than when it was when it opened in 1887 to serve northern elite who arrived in private rail cars to spend the winter here. Its the largest occupied wooden structure in the world, a Victorian treasure typical of the grand hotels of the era. During World War II its treasures were put in storage and it was turned into a barracks. Now restored, it is more regal than ever. A rambling queen with 292 guest rooms and suites, a stunning Sun Parlor Suite that is reserved for royal visitors, and such romantic spots as the Starlight Room and Tiffany Room, it is one of the most romantic hotels in Florida. Luxuriate in the spa, take a sunset cruise, dine in candlelit splendor in a choice of rooms, play golf, or lounge around the swimming pool. A tour of the historic hotel is offered each day at 11am. Dont miss it.

Beginning with Lacan is one of the hardest things to do. That his discourse even brings into question what it might truly mean to begin, which means that a whole lot of us never do, makes it all the more difficult because one starts to question themselves which is to go in the wrong direction entirely because in questioning oneself one is caught in an act of reflection that will never be an act in the proper sense of carving out a beginning. It is, in effect, just one more inhibition. In fact it may be inhibition par excellence. And if I’m already involving you in a dizzying set of logistics it is hopefully not for no reason; but certainly if one follows Lacan, the not for no reason is already quite suspect. With the double negation, perhaps all we can do is hope that we arrive at something a little bit more than not.

So it is with Lacan that one is trapped between a something that always amounts to nothing, his definition of the object, and a nothing that nevertheless must be made something, his hopes for the subject. About this, what does one say? Well, Lacan did that for the twenty-eight years of his seminar. And maybe then ask, what does one write? Well, Lacan surely did not do that, but, if I am not to be just one more contribution to the secondary elaboration of discourse, one that he never meant to be, then I don’t see anything other than the necessity for some extraordinary sacrifice. Those who take up the position of knowledge do so with an eye for the one who is vanishing—to reassure themselves that they are, not them, not there, with their gaze fixed on the horizon.
