March 1997 ICF Incorporated Fairfax, VA BACKGROUND For the purposes of this survey, a flexible pipeline is defined as a pipeline constructed of flexible material that can be installed in single long runs without the necessity of regular joints either to extend the length of the line or change directions. This material is usually shipped in rolls that are hundreds of feet long, with the installer cutting lengths to fit the requirements of each installation. Most varieties of flexible piping are available with secondary containment either as an option or an integral part of the primary piping. In all cases, the secondary containment piping will not serve as primary piping. The secondary containment piping is designed to channel leakage back to a sump or monitor point, where it can be detected. Because these pipelines differ significantly from the more traditional steel and fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) pipelines, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has periodically requested a survey of their characteristics and availability. This is the third installment of this survey.1

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Introduction to the Harry Potter Books In 1997 Joanne Rowling, a single parent living in Edinburgh, Scotland, published her first book. It was the fulfillment of a dream she’d had since she was a child. Her story about an eleven-year-old orphaned boy who discovers his heritage of wizardry took the world by storm. Published as a children’s book, it was embraced by readers of all ages, who found the engaging humor and gentle parody of the real world to be enjoyable and thought provoking. Rowling had planned, from the beginning, to tell the story in a series of seven books. The initial success of the first title (published in England as Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and in America as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone) guaranteed that she would be able to continue the story as she wished. Fans camped out overnight and lined up at bookstores in record numbers as each new installment in the series appeared. This discussion guide is designed to help readers explore some of the deeper meanings underlying Rowling’s world of wizardry and magic. Incorporating elements of fantasy, mystery, humor, sports, and friendship, the series has wide appeal for readers of all ages. On the surface the books are great adventure tales, but like all great fantasy literature, they also deal with universal human values, longings, wishes, and choices.

A word can be worth a thousand pictures. Yet we who are veteran Tolkien readers are happy about the airing of Peter Jackson’s movie-version of The Fellowship Ring. It has sent thousands of viewers, whether for the first or the fiftieth time, back to the book-version of J. R. R. Tolkien’s 1300-page epic fantasy. There are many things to commend in this first cinematic installment of Tolkien’s three-volume The Lord of the Rings. Sir Ian McKellan is an excellent Gandalf, the wry wizard who serves as guide and guardian for the Company of Nine who have been charged with the task of destroying the one ruling Ring that was crafted by the evil Sauron. The New Zealand scenery evokes the fantastically real world of Tolkien’s Middle-earth, and the tunnelly hobbit-homes are finely rendered. The special effects—whether in the brilliance of Gandalf’s magical fireworks or the hideousness of the fiend called the Balrog—are also well done. The film’s pacing nicely echoes the undulating movement of the book, as it shifts from chilling confrontations with orcs and trolls and ringwraiths to scenes of tranquil splendor in the elven realm of Lorien. There we encounter a late Victorian loveliness, just as the scenes of horror might have been borrowed from Hieronymus Bosch. For all of its virtues, the film largely misses the moral and spiritual dimension of Tolkien’s work. Though it finely captures the outward battle between the forces of good and evil, it does not reveal the triply addictive nature of the one ruling Ring: its capacity to give unending life, its ability to make its wearer invisible, and its power to coerce the will. Unlike his friend C. S. Lewis, Tolkien confessed his contempt for allegory. Yet he applauded what he called “historical application.” It is not difficult to discern the contemporary relevance of these three deadly qualities granted by Sauron’s Ring. Having happened upon the Ring of absolute power seemingly by accident, the hobbit named Bilbo Baggins has possessed it for many years. He has been spared the worst effects of the Ring because he has used it so rarely. The Ring has prolonged Bilbo’s life without giving him any fresh reason for living. It has given him quantitative but not qualitative existence, and for this reason he has become weary of life. He’s become thin and stretched, as he has grown ever older but not ever wiser. In Tolkien’s estimate, we moderns have been inveigled by the lure of life as an end in itself. In this regard, we are not far removed from our pagan forebears of ancient...
Consumer Rights & Protec tions • Know your loan. A Payday Loan is a loan with a finance charge exceeding 36% and with a term that does not exceed 120 days. An Installment Payday Loan is similar to a Payday Loan but has a term of not less than 112 days and not more than 180 days. • You cannot be charged fees of more than $15.50 per $100 borrowed and you have the right to full disclosure in your contract of all fees and the annual percentage rate (APR). • The maximum amount you can borrow varies depending on your income, but in no event can your monthly payment on a Payday Loan or Installment Payday Loan exceed $1,000. • For Payday Loans you can request a repayment plan after 35 days of outstanding debt. Once in the repayment plan you cannot be charged interest, finances charges or fees of any kind. Installment Payday Loans are not eligible for a repayment plan. • A lender cannot charge you for attorney’s fees or court costs to collect the outstanding debt. • Members of the military have additional protections including: a ban on wage garnishment, deferral of collection activity for personnel deployed to a combat area, and a prohibition on contacting your commanding officer. • You can cancel a wage assignment at any time by contacting the lender. • For a complete copy of the law establishing Payday Loans or to file a complaint against a loan company, got to www.idfpr.com and click on “Other Financial Institutions.”
By Colin Morgan‐Cross and Marieka Klawitter, Evans School of Public Affairs, University of Washington Payday lending has become one of the most widely used forms of short‐term credit: an estimated 19 million households, or 5% of the U.S. population, borrowed approximately $50 million in payday loans in 2007.1 In the last several years, payday lending has received significant scrutiny because of evidence that some borrowers become trapped in debt cycles that far outlast the term of the original loan, incurring additional fees at high interest rates. In response, states have taken a wide variety of approaches to limit predatory lending and regulate the payday loan industry. This brief categorizes current regulations of short‐term (payday) lending, examines studies of the potential effects of implementing fee and interest rate ceilings on payday loans, and identifies possible alternatives to high‐cost, short‐term credit. It focuses on the following question: What happens to borrowers who rely on payday loans when access to expensive, short‐term credit is restricted? Seventeen states and the District of Columbia prohibit short‐term loans at interest rates higher than 36% APR. Twenty‐seven states have implemented interest rate and fee limits above 36% and capped maximum loan amounts, but six states do not regulate interest rates or fees for payday loans. The supply of payday loans significantly decreases when rates are capped at 36% or less. Few financially attractive alternatives to payday lending currently exist in the marketplace— without access to payday loans, consumers likely use overdrafts, pawnshop loans, and late bill payment to cover short run credit needs. Household financial security does not necessarily improve after payday lending is prohibited through rate and fee ceilings of less than 36%. Aside from rate and fee ceilings, several policies can be used to regulate the payday loan industry, including mandating fee disclosures, longer loan terms, installment repayment plans, and restricting terms of debt per year. Of the Northwest Area Foundation States, Oregon and Montana have the lowest interest rate caps for payday loans, at 36%. Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, and Washington have implemented a variety of regulations, but each cap interest rates between 390%–520% on a $100 loan. Idaho and South Dakota have implemented no limits on interest rates or fees.
