This book couldn't make less sense if it were written in elvish, and I know that some people actually understand that - as in, they're about as hardcore about Tolkien as I am about French bread - but that's the whole point; this book is a clusterfuck unless you've spent an exorbitant number of hours poring over the characters and their histories and their family trees and the mythology of this world, and let's face it, that's impossible. Impossible, because this is C Stick a fork in me, I'm done. Impossible, because this is Cassandra Clare we're talking about.
She's no better or worse, but at least she has the good grace to shave her armpits before competition. It's not as if her relationship with Jace is even anything to write home about. As creepy and incestuous as it seemed in the first two and a half books, it was then that I rooted for them the most.
I mean, come on! These books are fluff. Magical fluff. They'd never explore anything as serious as GSA with any kind of depth or insight. We all knew from the moment Jace said, "Leia, I am your brother" that they weren't really siblings. It was fucking obvious, and it was for this reason that I gave in to enjoying them and at the end of City of Glass when they were finally and properly together, was on the verge of crying tears of fangirl joy.
They're a snore. Maia and Jordan are particularly problematic as a couple. On Tumblr, Cassandra Clare seems committed to writing healthy relationships and frequently defends her plot and character decisions with good, solid blog posts that generally allow me to better understand the thinking behind the decisions she makes.
There have been no such posts about Maia and Jordan. The way I saw Maia and Jordan's relationship was that Maia's life had been ruined by what was clearly a metaphor for dating violence, but strong as she was, she managed to champion that, move on and become stronger.
Yes; the boy who attacked her and ruined her life by turning her into a creature of the night.
How is this okay? I don't understand what Clare was getting at with this plot thread. Was it simply a desire to pair everyone off?
Because if it was I'd rather Maia had been with Simon. That was what I assumed at the end of COG.
Either that, or she ended up alone, which would have been even better. But this problematic palming-off of dating violence aside, Maia and Jordan's constant sexcapades just did nothing to push forward the plotline of this book. Cut out Jordan, who in my eyes will always be the boy who attacked Maia the fact that he was "out of control" doesn't excuse it - only makes it worse.
How many more times might he "lose control" in the future? She's just thrown back at her abusive boyfriend, because love trumps all, yay! Fuck off. Probably the most agonizing part of this ordeal was Alec and Magnus, and let me put this into perspective: Alec and Magnus, to me, were what Bella and Edward were to Twihards.
They were just Their love was so pure. But that's not even it. As separate characters, they were my favorites in the entire series.
Alec, in particular, I adored. He was so awkward and shy, protective and genuine, calm and sincere. He and Magnus, with such different personalities, just gelled together perfectly. But then along came City of Fallen Angels and everything went to shit. It was disheartening, to say the least, when this new and blindingly irritating Alec surfaced at the end of COFA. He underwent a total personality transplant, and I wonder if perhaps it was a marketing tactic.
The fanbase for Alec and Magnus is probably just as big, if not bigger, than the fanbase for Clary and Jace. It seems as if Alec and Magnus have been destroyed and turned into another Bethany and Xavier to shift the love of their fandom over to Clary and Jace who are, of course, the unbreakable power couple.
I'm just so mad about this. The whole thing only got worse in City of Lost Souls. Theoretically, Alec should be totally irredeemable for what he considered doing to Magnus. They simply aren't the same character. He would never shorten someone's life without their knowledge, and for his own gain. He would never seek relationship advice from an obviously evil vampire. He would, however, have stood on that hill and used his archery mojo to protect his friends.
And it was those brief little glimmers of Alec-ness that hurt the most.
Maintaining documents and records was key to ensure items were received and qualified and that service and maintenance contracts were procured. Hurricane Maria also impacted procurement. The only two delivery routes to Puerto Rico are by air and by sea.
Because of disruption in routine shipping systems, optimization of these procedures e. To expedite procurement of laboratory supplies and bring diagnostic and environmental testing services and surveillance activities back online in Puerto Rico, the CDC Laboratory Team partnered with the CDC Foundation.
The first shipments included essential laboratory items consumables, reagents, and equipment needed to reestablish testing. Later orders included laboratory items that failed quality control checks when PRDH was returned to grid power, as well as those that failed after prolonged exposure to heat and humidity Fig.
Accordingly, the majority of services needed to calibrate or validate equipment were procured later in the response Fig. Items were grouped into the following categories: consumables e. Capacity is presented as a percent of the actual volume of tests typically conducted by each laboratory in the previous year In this phase, managing the information and communicating with stakeholders including internal and external partners was key.
If nonconforming events occur, they should be managed and used to inform the continual improvement process. In addition to procurement of critical laboratory supplies, infectious disease testing needed to be reestablished.
During the initial response, priority pathogens were identified by PRDH and partner laboratories in the continental US were identified by the CDC Laboratory Team to reestablish interim clinical diagnostic testing and surveillance for those pathogens starting in October Sample shipping and tracking systems were implemented by the CDC Laboratory Team to facilitate this process and provide quality assurance 5.
In December , two QSE modules covering sample shipping and sample tracking were developed. Analysis of QI, e.
The shipping time remained at less than 1. The primary reason for improved shipping was due to the reduction in the number of packages delayed or rejected by the courier because of errors in package labeling. As of 18 May , more than clinical and surveillance samples were shipped from PRDH to partner testing laboratories.
The PRDH facilities that provided testing for priority pathogens were the initial focus, although the overlap in laboratory facilities meant that many of the laboratory concerns were addressed simultaneously. One crucial recovery measure implemented was the installation of uninterruptible power source UPS towers, which allowed for a controlled shutdown of instruments when generator or grid power was interrupted.
Achieving full power status defined as a stable connection to grid power and functional air conditioning in the laboratory areas excluding administrative and office spaces was coordinated between federal agencies and PRDH. With the influx of new refrigerators, freezers, and incubators, attendant National Institute of Standards and Technology NIST -certified thermometers were needed.
Ordering new equipment required measuring available space and making sure surfaces were leveled.
Basic items such as a tape measure and a level to perform these tasks were not easily available. It was quickly realized that an Emergency Laboratory Kit needed to be developed that included components required to move or re-qualify equipment and establish whether instruments needed to be excessed and replaced. For Clary is playing a dangerous game utterly alone. Or is he truly lost?
What price is too high to pay, even for love?
