19. The Age of Affluenza

de Graaf, John Berrett-Koehler Publishers ePub

Advertising separates our era from all earlier ones
as little else does.


Any space you take in visually, anything you
hear, in the future will be branded.


It’s morning in America,” announced the 1984 TV commercials for Ronald Reagan, whose message that Americans could have their cake and eat it too had overwhelmed the cautious conservationist Jimmy Carter four years earlier. And indeed, it was morning, the dawning, you might say, of the Age of Affluenza. Despite economic ups and downs, the last twenty years of the twentieth century would witness a commercial expansion unparalleled in history. Those Reagan commercials, small towns and smiling people in golden light, seem quaint now, more like the sunset of an old era than the morning of a new one. For one thing, there are no ads to be seen anywhere in the America pictured in those political commercials, no billboards, no product being sold except Reagan. That’s not America anymore.

Chapter XVII The Result—Extracts and Opinions

Revised by William Rathmell. Edited with an Introduction and Annotations by Robert K. DeArment University of North Texas Press PDF


XV r e t p ha


the result— extracts and opinions

Such a long chapter of testimony may tax the reader’s patience somewhat, but as this book is a history as well as a romance, it is necessary to give facts as they occurred. There were many more important witnesses on both sides, whose testimony was but a reiteration of that already gone over, and which is for that reason omitted here.

The trial dragged along through the court with weary monotony for days and weeks. Hundreds of citizens from all parts of the State came and went, and all watched the proceedings with keen interest.

Finally the case was given to the jury, with a long and exhaustive charge by A. P. McCormick, from which the following brief extracts are taken:

“Gentlemen: When a citizen of the United States is committed to the custody of the United States marshal or to a state jail by process issuing from one of the courts of the United States to be held in default of bail to await his trial on a criminal charge, within the exclusive jurisdiction of the national courts, such citizen has a right under the constitution and laws of the United States to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury, and until tried, has the right to be treated with humanity and to be fully protected against all unlawful violence while he is deprived of the ordinary means of defending and protecting himself.

5. Lists, Tiles, and Trees

Joshua Noble Adobe Developer Library ePub

The three components covered in this chapter extend the mx.controls.listclasses.ListBase class, and the methods for working with these data-driven controls are consistent in their implementation and use. Each of these data-driven controls has its children generated by a data provider and allows for sorting, filtering, reordering, and the setting of visual components to act as item renderers and item editors. These controls also allow for dragging and dropping.

The recipes in this chapter focus on working with item renderers, controlling selection, setting styles in ListBase controls, and working with data providers for different control types. This does not begin to exhaust the topics in working with these ListBase controls, though. For more recipes on working with drag-and-drop, see Chapter10, Dragging and Dropping. For recipes on working with skinning, see Chapter9, Skinning and Styling.

You need to create a list in which all the items are editable.

2 Linking Disturbance Regimes, Vegetation Dynamics, and Plant Strategies Across Complex Landscapes to Mitigate and Manage Plant Invasions

Monaco, T.A., Editor CAB International PDF


Linking Disturbance Regimes,

Vegetation Dynamics, and Plant

Strategies Across Complex

Landscapes to Mitigate and

Manage Plant Invasions

Samuel D. Fuhlendorf, Brady W. Allred, R. Dwayne

Elmore, and David M. Engle

Composition and structure of ecosystems have long been described as dynamic, but a recent focus on invasive species has revitalized discussion of assembly rules and dynamics of species composition. For rangelands, our understanding of species invasions focused first on the effects of woody plant encroachment on livestock production. Recent research emphasizes intentional and accidental introduction of exotic species that are capable of dramatic changes to ecosystem structure and function. Increased attention to invasive species, including woody plants, has altered our understanding and methods of describing rangeland dynamics. In early

20th-century descriptions of rangeland dynamics, grazing was seen as the primary driver that produced dynamics with predictable, linear, and reversible patterns.

26. Examples for Chapter 12


In Chapter12, you learned how filters and interceptors can be used to augment your JAX-RS service classes. In this chapter, we through how to build and run some of the examples shown in that chapter. Specifically, well go write a ContainerResponseFilter, a DynamicFeature, and an implementation of a WriterInterceptor. If you want to see examples of a ClientRequestFilter and a ContainerRequestFilter bound via a @NameBinding, check out Chapter29.

ex12_1 implements the @MaxAge and CacheControlFilter example in the section DynamicFeature.

The @MaxAge, CacheControlFilter, and MaxAgeFeature classes were explained pretty well in DynamicFeature, so Im not going to go into them again here. We applied the @MaxAge annotation to the CustomerResource.getCustomer() method:


Applying this annotation to this method will cause the CacheControlFilter to be bound to this method when it is executed. The filter will cause a Cache-Control header to be added to the HTTP response with a max age of 500 seconds. Lets also take a look at how these classes are registered:
