Gus Wortham Excerpt :

Gus S. Wortham was a good businessman. Among other enterprises, he started a highly successful insurance company, American General, and helped to shape the economic institutions of Houston. Gus Wortham was a civic leader, who worked actively in the Chamber of Commerce to influence the city's economic climate and who left the city a legacy of cultural institutions, including the Wortham Theater Center. Gus Wortham was a rancher and land developer. Land: "They aren't making any more if it," he liked to say. So he bought it, developed it, and built a business with it. In short, he became one of the most influential men in the history of Houston. This is the story of his life, his business, his city. Company records and interviews with Wortham's surviving friends and associates combine to make it a thorough account. "Mr. Wortham had an interesting philosophy about several matters in life," writes his longtime friend and business partner Sterling C. Evans in the Foreword. "One was on dollars. With the business dollar, it was immoral not to make money and one had to make sure to receive full value. With the pleasure dollar, if one could afford it, enjoy it and never look back." This old-school Southwestern gentleman lived a life worthy of a movie, and his company, American General, has shaped a city worthy of a television series of its own. Urban and business historians alike will find this book a fascinating study, and those who know, or want to know, Houston will find it an enlightening chronicle.

The gb-glucuronidase (GUS) gene is extremely useful as a reporter of the expression of introduced genes and can be used in organisms where other reporter genes are useless. Thus, the GUS gene is the reporter gene of choice for transgenic plant research.

Low cost is another advantage of this assay. GUS Protocols provides instructions and essential background information that will enable researchers to effectively use the GUS gene as a reporter of the expression of introduced genes. First book on the GUS reporter system Up-to-date reference lists following each of the fourteen chapters Comb-bound for convenient bench-top use Written by leading authorities including R.A. Jefferson, inventor of the GUS assay Illustrated with color GUS detection by fluorometric, spectrophotometric, and histochemical methods Fast, automated assays

Deadeye Gus Excerpt :

Kelli “Gus” Gustafson, the youngest and most determined officer on the Tarpon Springs police force, has a problem most people would love to have: she’s beautiful. Though in her eyes, beauty has always been nothing more than a huge impediment. Although she achieved the highest marksmanship score ever recorded at the Tampa police academy, her chief regards her as just another pretty face—until he unexpectedly promotes her to detective. Her new partner, Gordon “Gordo” Pruitt, is a crass but brilliant detective with the personality of an out of control dumpster fire. Immediately upon accepting her promotion, Gus and Gordo fall into the case of a lifetime. A sunken German U-boat is discovered just offshore of their touristy seaside town. Clues lead to the conclusion that a dangerous secret weapon created by Nazi scientists was placed aboard the U-boat during World War II. Now, the still deadly weapon has just been removed from the U-boat and is hidden somewhere in Tarpon Springs. To make matters worse, terrorists seeking the weapon appear and quickly prove they’re willing to do anything to attain it. Gus must figure out how to best work with her partner and leverage her world-class marksmanship skills to find the weapon and eliminate the bloodthirsty terrorists as the lives of all Americans hang in the balance.
