Historical accounts of racial discrimination in transportation have focused until now on trains, buses, and streetcars and their respective depots, terminals, stops, and other public accommodations. It is essential to add airplanes and airports to this narrative, says Anke Ortlepp. Air travel stands at the center of the twentieth century's transportation revolution, and airports embodied the rapidly mobilizing, increasingly prosperous, and cosmopolitan character of the postwar United States. When segregationists inscribed local definitions of whiteness and blackness onto sites of interstate and even international transit, they not only brought the incongruities of racial separation into sharp relief but also obligated the federal government to intervene. Ortlepp looks at African American passengers; civil rights organizations; the federal government and judiciary; and airport planners, architects, and managers as actors in shaping aviation's legal, cultural, and built environments. She relates the struggles of black travelers-to enjoy the same freedoms on the airport grounds that they enjoyed in the aircraft cabin-in the context of larger shifts in the postwar social, economic, and political order. Jim Crow terminals, Ortlepp shows us, were both spatial expressions of sweeping change and sites of confrontation over the re-negotiation of racial identities. Hence, this new study situates itself in the scholarly debate over the multifaceted entanglements of "race" and "space.".

This report provides guidance for selecting and implementing methods for measuring noise level reduction in dwellings associated with airport noise insulation programs. The research complements the results of ACRP Report 89: Guidelines for Airport Sound Insulation Programs and was undertaken to assess the accuracy and validity of various noise level reduction measurement procedures currently used in airport noise insulation programs. Acoustical field measurements were made at 10 homes near San Diego International Airport and nine homes near Boston Logan International Airport. Seven measurement methods were tested: outdoor ground-level artificial sound source (loudspeaker); outdoor elevated artificial source (loudspeaker); indoor artificial sound source (loudspeaker); aircraft flyover: fixed microphone; aircraft flyover: moving microphone; architectural survey and noise reduction calculations; and acoustic intensity measurements, exterior loudspeaker and interior intensity. The report includes a summary of sound insulation theory and the science behind noise level reduction, and an overview of FAA-sponsored noise insulation programs. The report also provides guidance, including a decision matrix, for selecting an appropriate acoustical testing method. Lastly, the report provides suggested practices for each measurement technique, based on the results of the research.

  • Porfirian radio, imperial designs, and the Mexican nation
  • Radio in revolution
  • Rebuilding a nation at war
  • Growth and insecurity
  • Invisible hands
  • Broadcasting state culture and populist politics.
Long before the Arab Spring and its use of social media demonstrated the potent intersection between technology and revolution, the Mexican Revolution employed wireless technology in the form of radiotelegraphy and radio broadcasting to alter the course of the revolution and influence how political leaders reconstituted the government. Radio in Revolution, an innovative study of early radio technologies and the Mexican Revolution, examines the foundational relationship between electronic wireless technologies, single-party rule, and authoritarian practices in Mexican media. J. Justin Castro bridges the Porfiriato and the Mexican Revolution, discussing the technological continuities and change that set the stage for Lazaro Cardenas's famous radio decree calling for the expropriation of foreign oil companies. Not only did the nascent development of radio technology represent a major component in government plans for nation and state building, its interplay with state power in Mexico also transformed it into a crucial component of public communication services, national cohesion, military operations, and intelligence gathering. Castro argues that the revolution had far-reaching ramifications for the development of radio and politics in Mexico and reveals how continued security concerns prompted the revolutionary victors to view radio as a threat even while they embraced it as an essential component of maintaining control.
