His talent was unbounded -- a raw force that commanded attention and respect. His death was tragic -- a violent homage to the power of his voice. His legacy is indomitable -- as vibrant and alive today as it has ever been. Tupac Shakur´s most intimate and honest thoughts were uncovered only after his death with the instant classic The Rose That Grew from Concrete . For the first time in paperback, this collection of deeply personal poetry is a mirror into the legendary artist´s enigmatic world and its many contradictions. Written in his own hand from the time he was nineteen, these seventy-two poems embrace his spirit, his energy -- and his ultimate message of hope.

Written in his own hand at the age of 19 these poems embrace and express his spirit, passion, energy and intelligence.
The amount of total and relative sway of a framed or a composite (frame-shear wall) building is of utmost importance in assessing the seismic resistance of the building. Therefore, the design engineer must calculate the sway profile of the building several times during the design process. However, it is not a simple task to calculate the sway of a three-dimensional structure. Of course, computer programs can do the job, but developing the three-dimensional model becomes necessary, which is obviously tedious and time consuming. An easy to apply analytical method is developed, which enables the determination of sway profiles of framed and composite buildings subject to seismic loading. This enables the design engineer to evaluate the sway at any vertical level of the building, thus enabling the calculation of relative as well as the maximum sway. By using the proposed analytical method, the amount of shear walls necessary to satisfy Earthquake Code requirements are determined. Thus, a vital design question has been answered, which up till present time, could only be met by rough empirical guidelines.
You land in prison in your 20s, faced with the likelihood of spending the rest of your life behind the wall. What do you do? Danner Darcleight started writing. He writes about what he sees, what he has done, and the toll that his own past actions have exacted. Concrete Carnival brings us inside a maximum-security prison, introducing a colorful cast of rogues while revealing the day-to-day struggles experienced by millions of Americans now living inside the world´s largest prison complex. Haunted by his past, Darcleight slips the surly bonds of heroin. He gets stripped, deloused, and assigned an inmate number. He learns to navigate among sociopaths, gangbangers, drug dealers, hustlers, thieves, mercurial prison guards, and his own grinding remorse. He works through recurring thoughts of suicide, benefits from serendipitous encounters, and ultimately meets a loving woman who brings warmth to a harsh existence. Darcleight pushes past the clichés and caricatures employed by pop culture, offering direct engagement with what it´s really like to do time. What begins as frontline reportage becomes an unforgettable case study in resilience and determination against the worst imaginable odds. An exhilarating, picaresque ride through the sights, sounds, and emotions of prison life, Concrete Carnival is a moving portrait of one man´s long journey from hopelessness and addiction to love and redemption. 1.
