    TRANS ALASKA PIPELINE
    July 28, 1977 - USA, Alaska

    The 799-mile trans-Alaska pipeline began full operation as the first oil from Prudhoe Bay arrived at Valdez at 11:02 p.m. It had started its travel along the line at Prudhoe Bay on 20 Jun 1977. By 1 Aug 1977, the first North Slope oil left the Port of Valdez aboard the ARCO Juneau. The pipeline is insulated and elevated. In areas where the frozen-soil temperatures are near the thaw point, elaborate supports are used to ensure heat from the oil does not transfer through them to the soil. The supports contain heat pipes, and have finned radiators on top. With the President's signature on the enabling legislation (16 Nov 1973), construction shortly began of the road, pump stations and terminal. Pipes were laid in about two years from Mar 1975. After testing, the pipeline began service transporting oil.

  • A Change is Gonna Come
    by Meredith Grey

    "...Change; we don't like it, we fear it, but we can't stop it from coming. We either adapt to change, or we get left behind. It hurts to grow, anybody who tells you it doesn't is lying. But here's the truth: Sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same. And sometimes, oh, sometimes change is good. Sometimes change is everything...."
  • Happiness
    by Thomas Jefferson

    "...Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits...."
