We will look at how new intelligent traffic adaptive systems will greatly enhance travel. Finally, we will examine how bridges and tunnels are constructed, and why tunneling construction technology is likely to change the nature of our metropolitan areas. Much of the material in this course will be drawn lectures by Professor Stephen Ressler in The Great Courses.

    Effective Letters to the Editor do not just materialize out of thin air. The topic must be clearly identified, ditto the reason for writing. Effective letters provide good editorial topics and strong news leads. Grammatically correct letters will be printed first, especially if Who, What, Why, When, Where and How are clearly presented. Remember supporting details and that finger-pointing and prejudicial information will be ignored. Learn the tricks of the trade. With luck we will have a retired newspaper writer and current editorial page editor as guests.

    Admiral Rickover served in the US Navy for almost 64 years (from June 1918 as a Midshipman at the Naval Academy until his forced retirement in February 1982). Starting in 1946 when he took a one-year course on nuclear energy at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the rest of his career was as the head of the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program with assignments in the Navy and the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission and its successor agencies. Nuclear powered submarines, starting with USS NAUTILUS and nuclear powered surface ships, starting with the cruiser USS LONG BEACH and the aircraft carrier USS ENTERPRISE, were the direct result of his technical and political efforts. The nuclear power industry in the West started with the Shippingport Atomic Power Station, which was also designed, built and operated under his direction. Bob Holloran was part of the technical staff of Admiral Rickover for eight years and reported directly to the Admiral the last three years as the Naval Reactors Representative at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine.
