"'As Simple as Burek' is a saying current among young people in Slovenia. But in his book, Jernej Mlekuž holds just the opposite. The burek--a pie made of pastry dough filled with various fillings, well-known in the Balkans, Turkey (bürek), and also in the Near East by other names--whether on the plate or as a cultural artifact, is in fact not that simple. After a brief stroll though its innocent history, before parasitical ideologies had attached themselves to the burek and poisoned its discourses, Mlekuž focuses on the present. In Slovenia, the burek has become a loaded metaphor for the Balkans and immigrants from the republics of the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Without the burek it would be equally difficult to consider the jargon of Slovenian youth, the imagined world of Slovenian chauvinism and the rhetorical arsenal of advertising agents when promoting healthy foods. In this analysis therefore, the burek is always what Mlekuž calls the metaburek. It is greasy, Balkan, Slovene, not-Slovene, the greatest, eastern, the best, shit, oriental, unhealthy, plebian, Yugoslav, junk, a cherub (burek spelled backwards is kerub, the Slovene word for cherub). And this metaburek, which is the protagonist of this book, is never a completely pure, innocent, unconditioned burek. It is much more than just a burek. And a word of warning: after consuming this text, the burek will never be the same"--Provided by publisher.

The pie, to quote one Victorian writer, is 'a great human discovery which has universal estimation among all civilized eaters'. It is astonishing, given the widespread appeal of this humble dish, that the pie does not appear to have had a single book devoted to its complex but fascinating story; this book redresses a glaring omission from culinary history. "Pie" explores the development of this most esteemed article of food, from its purely pragmatic (and no doubt somewhat ugly) beginnings in ancient history, to its present elevation as the highest expression of culinary art.Janet Clarkson does not shy away from the seamier side of the story, nor does she neglect the symbolic role of the pie, its commercial applications or its many international variations. The book touches upon the pie's nutritional value and its cultural significance - and it even has some fun with linguistics. This book is intended not just to relate a dry factual history of the pie, but to celebrate its very existence. "Pie" will tap into the increasingly popular vein of books on culinary history, and will satisfy the appetites of those with a particular interest in the history of food, as well as the more general reader interested in all aspects of food and cookery.

What could be a more fun and delicious way to celebrate American culture than through the lore of our favorite foods? That's what John T. Edge does in his smart, witty, and compulsively readable new series on the dishes everyone thinks their mom made best. If these are the best-loved American foods-ones so popular they've come to represent us-what does that tell us about ourselves? And what do the history of the dish and the regional variations reveal? There are few aspects of life that carry more emotional weight and symbolism than food, and in writing about our food icons, Edge gives us a warm and wonderful portrait of America -by way of our taste buds. After all, "What is patriotism, but nostalgia for the foods of our youth?" as a Chinese philosopher once asked.

Illus. in full color. An apple pie is easy to make...if the market is open. But if the market is closed, the world becomes your grocery store. This deliciously silly recipe for apple pie takes readers around the globe to gather ingredients. First hop a steamboat to Italy for the finest semolina wheat. Then hitch a ride to England and hijack a cow for the freshest possible milk. And, oh yes! Don't forget to go apple picking in Vermont! A simple recipe for apple pie is included. "Libraries should consider purchasing multiple copies since every preschool and primary-grade teacher in town will want a copy to read."--(starred) "Booklist.".

This report evaluates the data used in two of the models available to the Energy Information Administration (EIA). Specifically, the study involves updating, reviewing, and documenting the technological data on primary energy conversion, transportation, distribution and end-use conversion. The major focus is upon data used in the Decision Focus, Inc. (DFI), LEAP model. This is an abbreviated version of the Gulf-Stanford Research, Inc., energy model developed to assess the potential future impacts of synthetic fuels in the US energy system. A parallel effort assesses the data used in the model commonly known as the Project Independence Evaluation System (PIES).

Environmental assessments of future conventional and nonconventional energy technologies are routinely conducted by the DOE and other Federal agencies. This work is usually done at broad spatial scales ranging from a county level to state, regional, or national levels of analysis. A case study is presented that uses a screening process which identifies potential SO/sub 2/ damage to crops and natural vegetation to highlight problems and to present possible approaches of conducting ecological assessments at unspecified sites. As a first approximation of impact, the screening process identifies potential crop and natural vegetation damage from projected SO/sub 2/ emissions. This process relies on existing data bases for SO/sub 2/ threshold values for crop damage and on the geographical location of SO/sub 2/ sensitive vegetation; 1975-measured and 1990-projected ambient SO/sub 2/ levels for energy and industrial sources provide the basis for identifying potential impact areas. A recent analysis of the PIES Mid-Mid Range Scenario indicates fewer areas with potential crop damage in 1990 than in 1975 even though fossil-fuel burning is projected to increase.

This report consists of four technical memoranda documenting four major modeling improvements which were made to the DOE Mid-term Energy Market Model (MEMM) in late 1978 and early 1979 during the preparation of the EIA's Annual Report to Congress, 1978. The changes, and the subjects of the memoranda, include: (1) extensive revision of the modeling of natural gas regulation to reflect provisions of the Natural Gas Policy Act of 1978; (2) more sophisticated treatment of advanced energy technologies (oil shale, coal conversion, solar/geothermal, solid waste conversion, enhanced oil recovery, and enhanced gas recovery); (3) more detailed treatment of the demand for coal of various sulfur contents and the costs associated with the use of such coal, particularly in the electric utility sector; and (4) changes in the modeling of dynamics to accommodate the extension of the model to 1995 and the more detailed modeling of coal-fired utility plants.

Models have been and are being used by the U.S. Department of Energy to provide inputs into the decision process. The question is often asked as to the accuracy of their forecasts and the methods used for validation. It is asserted that energy models can not be predictive, and that validation based on experience with models of physical systems is inappropriate. Asking the question as to the accuracy or validity of an energy system model is not useful. The usefulness of energy models for policy analysis or technology assessment lies in the comparative results generated for alternative scenarios, initiatives, and actions.
