The Black Kids
The Black Kids - Christina Hammonds Reed

Ashley Bennett has lived a luxurious life in an upper class Los Angeles neighborhood.  However, as the school year winds down and a local man, Rodney King is murdered, Ashley is forced to reevaluate how she views herself and her peers. At first, Ashley the Rodney King murder is barely a blip on Ashley's radar, although after the verdict is delivered and the protests and riots begin, Ashley begins to see a difference in the way she and her family are treated.  She is not just any girl at her high school, she is one of the black kids. 

The Black Kids is so on point and perfectly written that I want everyone to read this book immediately.  Honest, poignant, and driven, the writing had me hooked from the beginning; it was eerie how the events of the very first chapter seemed to perfectly echo the current events of the USA.  I liked that Ashley's character was not the typical 'black kid' of the time and had to experience the consequences of the Rodney King murder to realize the truth of how her race effects her daily life.  Through Ashley's eyes I experienced the blatant racism and sexism that was as rampant in 1992 as it is now.  The prose also perfectly captured the wonders of being a teen along with the nostalgia of the early 1990's.  Ashley's journey  had great revelations about racism and the weight of representing her race in a white world, as well as understanding of poverty, friendship and growing up.  The consequences of the Rodney King verdict and the subsequent riots were a turning point in Ashley's view of herself and her life, opening up her eyes and my own to see just how long people of color have been vigilantly fighting against systemic racism in the USA and highlighting the cycle of racism, unjust killing, protest and unrest until we put a bandage on the current issue until we forget about what caused the previous issue.  The Black Kids is a must-read for everyone who wants to better understand the world we live in.

This book was received for free in return for an honest review.

The variable speed governor is used to control the speed of the 39

Therefore, it is mostly used on knitting machines or less demanding textile machinery. Controlled by industrial computer and programmable controller PLC. In most newly developed textile machinery products, the AC asynchronous motor variable frequency speed regulation device is applied almost without exception. For weaving machinery, there are sizing machines and warping machines. One type is the commonly used Y series AC asynchronous motor.

 

Large low speed loom reed suppliers, with swing frequency function, low electrode noise, has been well received by customers in the textile industry. Is a high-quality, high-level equipment. However, there is still a large gap compared with the international advanced level. 2. At the same time, the variable speed governor is used to control the speed of the 39 main motors to control the number of revolutions of the spindle, so that the spinning speed of the spun yarn changes in large, medium and small yarns to reduce the yarn breakage rate. Reduce power consumption and reduce costs Textile mills cannot do without air-conditioning equipment. Industrial control computer,

 

PLC and inverter are used to control 4 motors, which rotate the ingot wing, roller, simple tube and dragon ribs to lift and lower, respectively. Speed ​​range can reach 100: 1. 3. It is controlled by a PLC programmable controller or industrial computer, and then a multi-motor synchronous and coordinated operation is realized through a frequency converter. FA491 high-speed roving frame is a new type of roving frame developed in China in recent years.

 

Among them, PLC is used to control the operation of the whole machine and the parameters such as the moisture regain, the temperature of the drying room and the pulp tank, and the pressure of the pressure roller. When the air conditioner motor is controlled by a frequency converter, the power consumption is reduced, and the electricity expenditure is greatly saved. The tapered gear shifting device and forming device are removed, which simplifies the mechanism. Adopt speed sensorless vector control inverter. In order to increase the switching frequency of the inverter, a power insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) is used instead of a general high-power tube (GTR).

Review: IM by Rick R Reed
IM - Rick R. Reed

***I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Netgalley and NineStar Press.***

 

This book has an interesting premise, one that is becoming more relevant as the idea of social networking and hook up culture gains ever more steam. It plays on a lot of fears that people have. One side is spurring you on a hormonal rush to an anonymous lover, the other is wondering just how do you know the person you’re meeting isn’t a psycho?

 

Ultimately, the book had it’s good points but it wasn’t done very well. The characterizations had a lot of inconsistencies, the story had gaping plot holes and the entire ending was written in a way that confused me as to what was going on.

One of the good things in this book was Peter. I really enjoyed him. I found him funny, sardonic and at times wise beyond his years. His romance with Ed was very sweet. I was rooting for the two of them because they were both nice guys that desperately wanted a relationship more meaningful than just hooking up.

 

I also really enjoyed that this book didn’t shy away from the depravity within its pages. Sometimes when an author feels uncomfortable writing something dark they tend to do a “fade to black” just when things are getting serious. I always admire an author that has the courage to see the depravity through. As an amateur writer myself I have written scenes that made myself feel ill and they are really hard to write. I was uncomfortable reading this book, so well done to the author.

 

Unfortunately, I just couldn’t get over some big things with the book. The first problem was the ever growing cast of narrators. Virtually every other chapter was “Meet Guy 2, he’s lonely and wants to hook up with a dude from online. He is wary that the person won’t be anything like they described themselves. Ahhh, he’s going to kill me.” Then the killer kills them and we move on to a chapter about Ed being frustrated with finding a killer. It got repetitive and boring, and the constant shuffling of narrators who were subsequently killed made it difficult to connect with the story emotionally. It’s hard to get an emotional investment in a character who is only around for ten pages.

 

There was also a very huge problem with the characterization of the killer. Sometimes he is portrayed as a victim of abuse and neglect, getting back at the homosexual world that had so richly abused him over the years. Then other times we’re treated to narratives about him being a psychopath and torturing animals as a child, or torturing lovers because the pain is a turn on. Those two things don’t really mix very well. Which one is he? I had a hard time reconciling both in my head as being the same person. Violent psychopaths typically don’t make for very easy victims.

 

 

 

SPOILER ALERT: The following paragraphs contain some minor spoilers.

 

 

 

A few of the big plotholes took away from the story for me too. First, the circumstances that Ed finds himself in with his job were weird. It literally made no sense and was never explained. Ed gets fired for allegedly “fabricating” the witness who discovered the first body. They allege that he had no witnesses so he made one up to make it seem like he had a lead. But here’s the problem. The witness was seen by several people. Several other people talked to him before Ed even arrived. When Ed arrived, he is directed to the witness by one of those people. But then the person is just too upset about the crime scene to remember clearly? That was very weakly done. There are plenty of options for having Ed be terminated through crooked means but this was just dumb.

 

I had a big problem with exactly how the killer seemed to be a full head (or more) shorter than everyone he killed, but it wasn’t a problem. He is described as “elfin” about a thousand times. He’s so short that he sometimes can’t be seen through peepholes. But yet, he physically overpowers and kills multiple men who are larger, more athletic and stronger than him. How does that happen? I have no idea. All the book told me is that he does. It’s not explained how that happened at all.

 

The ending was really confusing. I was being told about a lot of things happening at once and the way it was written made it all seem jumbled. All of a sudden Ed would be jumping up to attack the killer and I was thinking “Wait, but wasn’t the killer over by the door? How did he get here all of a sudden?” I started to skim it for the high points because I just didn’t follow it.

 

I think there are a lot of good bones to this book. The writing shows a lot of talent and the idea is a good one. It really needs a good edit or two.

Many forklift parts dealers have both new and used

There are a number of different manufacturers of forklift parts. Forklift parts can be purchased from several sources. The engine size and the strength of the lifting system also play important roles in determining how much a forklift can safely carry. Forklift transmissions are vital to the machine's operation.There are several components that all forklifts have in common. Forklift brake parts are other important parts. It is important to note that a forklift's weight capacity depends on much more than just the forks. The same company that made the forklift can make the replacement parts or a generic maker can manufacture them. Many dealerships have extensive catalogues that list the parts they have available.

 

Many forklift parts dealers have both new and used transmissions for sale. Manual transmissions are probably more common and are easier to fix, but many people prefer automatic transmissions because they are easier to use. Weaker model forks can safely lift 900 pounds, while heavy-duty forks are capable of lifting several tons.. The forks, also called blades or tines, vary greatly from model to model. These forklift parts are vital to the operation of the equipment.

 

Most forks are made of steel. Buying good replacement forklift parts is a great way to keep the machine functioning properly. Forklift parts are available for nearly every make and model, so it should not be too hard to find the necessary parts. The forks are possibly the most important component of the forklift. Forklift brakes operate in a similar manner to the brakes of an automobile and they have many parts in common.

 

Forks differ in the amount of flat reed suppliers weight they can handle. Forklifts can use either manual or automatic transmissions. Without quality forks, the lift is not able to transport cargo efficiently. Both new and used parts are usually available wherever forklifts are sold. Forks, brake components, and transmissions are some of the parts that are purchased most often. Many forklift parts dealers offer extensive warranties on their products. Brake shoes and break drums are among the most commonly purchased forklift brake parts

Just type in "online business opportunity" in Google and see what I mean. It is a phenomenon that you can use to weed out some of the good from bad if you use them right. When you shop for treadmills, the important item you should look for is a control panel that will display your speed, time, pace and Reed Machines distance. But with the hundreds of companies out there selling treadmills, there is an array of options to choose from.

 

The web is like an almost infinite library at your fingertips. I'd been looking for a home based business and eventually stumbled across the internet as an obvious market place. That severely affects marketability. I can honestly say that I learned everything I needed without leaving my seat! Good luck with your "internet money machine", you can do it!
