RAND Corp. Book Sale; Plus Free Ayn
The RAND Corporation is offering various books for sale at 40% discounts from the titles' respective cover prices.
None of the sale publications are new releases, and while it's arguable that some might already be dated (one title from 2002 is teased as offering "next steps in the U.S. campaign to defeat al Qaeda and combat terrorism"), many of the reads are clearly evergreen.
For instance, take the 2002 title, "In Our Backyard: How 3 L.A. Neighborhoods Affect Kids' Lives," by Anne R. Pebley and Mary E. Vaiana.
And, from 2005, "Just Cause or Just Because?: Prosecution and Plea-Bargaining Resulting in Prison Sentences on Low-Level Drug Charges in California and Arizona," by a team of authors.
Or, less California-centric, and with a splashy Uncle Sam cover, "I Want You!: The Evolution of the All-Volunteer Force," from 2006, by Bernard D. Rostker.
Meanwhile, research briefs of current and past RAND publications are available for free-of-charge download here.
And, finally today, from the department of non sequiturs...

Sneak into The Autry's galleries to catch an intimate acoustic performance by Guatemalan American singer-songwriter Gaby Moreno as part of the museum's "Best of Los Angeles" series.
Black voters could in many ways be the decisive eco-voters of the most high stakes election in American history.
Nine parents of Los Angeles Unified children filed a proposed class-action lawsuit alleging that distance learning plans are inadequate and violate students' rights to a basic public education. It also alleges minorities are disproportionately impacted.
The Hollywood Bowl’s fireworks are a booming exclamation point on an evening spent under the stars. But how do they come together?
