My Disillusionment in Russia

My Disillusionment in Russia is a book by Emma Goldman, published in 1923 by Doubleday, Page & Co. The book was based on a much longer manuscript entitled "My Two Years in Russia", an eyewitness account of events in Russia from 1920 to 1921 that ensued in the wake of the Russian Revolution of 1917 and which culminated in the Kronstadt rebellion. Long-concerned about developments with the Bolsheviks, Goldman described the rebellion as the "final wrench. I saw before me the Bolshevik State, crushing every constructive revolutionary effort, suppressing and disintegrating everything". Much to Goldman's dismay, only upon receiving the first printed copies of the book did she become aware that the publisher had changed the title. Sympathetic to the initial Russian Revolution, the book is nonetheless a strong and impassioned left critique of the Bolshevik Revolution as well as Vladimir Lenin's New Economic Policy—an "all-powerful, centralized Government with State Capitalism as its economic expression".

The complete book is critical of Marxian theory, which Goldman describes as "a cold, enslaving formula". After much back and forth with the publishers, the missing portions of Goldman's original manuscript were published in a second volume My Further Disillusionment in Russia in 1924. In the preface to the second "volume" of the American edition, Goldman wryly observes that only two of the reviewers sensed the incompleteness of the original American version, one of whom was not a regular critic, but a librarian. A complete version of the complete manuscript was published in England with an introduction by Rebecca West with the title My Disillusionment in Russia. My Disillusionment in Russia at Project Gutenberg Volume 1, Full Text: My Disillusionment in Russia. Volume 2, Full Text: My Further Disillusionment in Russia. Text of the American edition My Disillusionment in Russia. Text of the complete English edition – it was confusingly given the same title as the incomplete American edition. In the United States, Goldman's original manuscript was published as two separate volumes: the first was entitled My Disillusionment in Russia and the second was entitled My Further Disillusionment in Russia.

Online version of the complete English edition made available by Andrew Chrucky's "Digital Text International". See listing at http://ditext.com/online.html

Ting River

The Ting River flows 300 kilometres from Ninghua County in western Fujian south to the port and Special Economic Zone of Shantou, Guangdong. It is a main tributary of the Han River and is referred to Hakka Mother River; the former prefecture of Tingzhou fu or T'ingchow-fu was administered from a centre on the upper river, now the town of Tingzhou in Changting County. As most inhabitants of Tingzhou-fu/Changting are Hakka, as Meizhou is next downstream, the Tingjiang is considered by some to be the mother river of all the Hakkas; the Tingjiang is unique among Fujianese rivers in that its lower watershed and debouchment are outside the province. The traffic in Tingzhou-fu/Changting was always with eastern areas of Guangdong, namely Meizhou and, further down, the Min-Nan-speaking Chao-Shan area -- Chaozhou and Shantou.

National Electrical Code

The National Electrical Code, or NFPA 70, is a regionally adoptable standard for the safe installation of electrical wiring and equipment in the United States. It is part of the National Fire Code series published by the National Fire Protection Association, a private trade association. Despite the use of the term "national", it is not a federal law, it is adopted by states and municipalities in an effort to standardize their enforcement of safe electrical practices. In some cases, the NEC is amended and may be rejected in lieu of regional regulations as voted on by local governing bodies; the "authority having jurisdiction" inspects for compliance with these minimum standards. The NEC should not be confused with the National Electrical Safety Code published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers; the NESC is used for electric power and communication utility systems including overhead lines, underground lines and power substations. The NEC is developed by NFPA's Committee on the National Electrical Code, which consists of twenty code-making panels and a technical correlating committee.

Work on the NEC is sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association. The NEC is approved as an American national standard by the American National Standards Institute, it is formally identified as ANSI/NFPA 70. First published in 1897, the NEC is updated and published every three years, with the 2020 edition being the most current. Most states adopt the most recent edition within a few of years of its publication; as with any "uniform" code, jurisdictions may omit or modify some sections, or add their own requirements. However, no court has faulted anyone for using the latest version of the NEC when the local code was not updated. In the United States, including the city issuing building permits, may face a civil liability lawsuit for negligently creating a situation that results in loss of life or property; those who fail to adhere to well known best practices for safety have been held negligent. This liability and the desire to protect residents has motivated cities to adopt and enforce building codes that specify standards and practices for electrical systems.

This creates a system whereby a city can best avoid lawsuits by adopting a single, standard set of building code laws. This has led to the NEC becoming the de facto standard set of electrical requirements. A licensed electrician will have spent years of apprenticeship studying and practicing the NEC requirements prior to obtaining their license; the Deactivation and Decommissioning customized extension of the electrical code standard defined by National Electrical Code was developed since current engineering standards and code requirements do not adequately address the unique situations arising during D&D activities at U. S. Department of Energy facilities; the additional guidance is needed to clarify the current electrical code for these situations. The guidance document provides guidance on how to interpret selected articles of NFPA 70, “National Electrical Code”, in particular certain articles within Article 590, “Temporary Power,” for D&D electrical activities at DOE sites; the NEC contains information about the official definition of HAZLOC and the related standards given by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and dealing with hazardous locations such as explosive atmospheres.

The NEC is available as a bound book containing 1000 pages. It has been available in electronic form since the 1993 edition. Although the code is updated every three years, some jurisdictions do not adopt the new edition; the NEC is available as a restricted, digitized coding model that can be read online but not saved and pasted, or printed, free of charge on certain computing platforms that support the restricted viewer software. In the United States, statutory law cannot be copyrighted and is accessible and copyable by anyone; when a standards organization develops a new coding model and it is not yet accepted by any jurisdiction as law, it is still the private property of the standards organization and the reader may be restricted from downloading or printing the text for offline viewing. For that privilege, the coding model must still be purchased as either printed media or electronic format Once the coding model has been accepted as law, it loses copyright protection and may be obtained at no cost.

The NEC is composed of an introduction, nine chapters, annexes A through J, the index. The introduction sets forth the purpose, scope and rules or information that are general in nature; the first four chapters cover definitions and rules for installations and circuit protection and materials for wiring, general-purpose equipment. The next three chapters deal with special equipment and special conditions. Chapter 8 is specific to additional requirements for communications systems and chapter 9 is composed of tables regarding conductor and conduit properties, among other things. Annexes A-J relate to referenced standards, examples, additional tables for proper implementation of various code articles and a model adoption ordinance; the introduction and the first 8 chapters contain numbered articles, sections italicized
