The stage is Judevine, an imaginary town in northern Vermont. This is a small stage, sometimes cold and darkened, but filled with characters so finely etched that they stand out as clearly as steeples against the sky. David Budbill plunges into the soul of New England to find characters and stories with lessons for anyone wanting to find the intrinsic nature of the region that has been called "all of America's backyard." These dark, lyrical, funny narrative poems portray the hopes and joys, pains and despair of people who have been bypassed or bruised by the twentieth century. Budbill has written a song of the down-and-out or overlooked, a song of the unsung. This anthem of the rural renaissance is microcosmic in setting, but universal in scope.

OUTXPRO Solar Energy Snake Repeller Powerful Ultrasonic Gopher Mole Mouse Rodent Voles Rat Yard Lawn Farm Garden Pest Repellent Device w LED Light
Solar Powered Snake Repellent to Secure your Living Environment Read instructions emailed to you thoroughly. The repeller transmits its signal in all directions approx. 50 ft so they can be placed approx. 100 ft apart in high risk areas, it is always recommended to use two or more units to get the best results. Insert the spike into the ground paying attention not to damage the unit. The spike should be firmly planted while leaving the base of the head 1-2" above the ground. We suggest use a crowbar to first make a small hole and gently push the spike in or dig a small hole and backfill with earth after the unit is in place. If the repeller unit is placed on a slight angle facing the sun often a better battery life can be achieved through better charge rate. Normally the only maintenance required is with a soft cloth, wipe the solar panel cover to remove any excess dirt and grime. When the units are first installed we suggest you watch any children or pets in case they come across any resident snakes that are driven out.

This book discusses how energy efficiency benefits the global environment, national energy security, local pollution mitigation, natural resource conservation, and utility bill reduction. In addition, this book provides many hands-on skills and knowledge to identify and develop energy efficiency projects. The literature review shows that energy efficiency has become the first fuel in the world energy supply. With empirical analyses, this book indicates that without continued investment in energy efficiency, neither China nor the U.S. could achieve their carbon emission reduction targets that were announced on November 13, 2014 during the Beijing 2014 APEC meeting. The authors argue that energy efficiency will become the first tool to mitigate climate change. These include (1) identifying energy efficiency barriers, (2) developing energy policies, (3) investing in energy efficient technologies, (4) undertaking project cost-effectiveness analysis, (5) de-risking and financing energy efficiency projects; (6) developing and managing energy service companies, and (7) promoting urban transport efficiency. Two case studies in energy efficiency improvement in electrical motors and industrial boilers are also presented. This book is written for college and university students, practitioners, researchers, consultants, project developers, and policy makers who want to dedicate their professional careers in global energy efficiency improvement, climate change mitigation, local clean air initiatives, and energy bill reduction.
