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. Not only can this assay be used to detect whether a gene is being expressed, but it can be used to determine the location of the gene product within cells. 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

While spending time with Gus, the young son of a close friend, his suppressed insecurities surface. But nine-year-old Gus sees things very clearly - and Gus just wants to play football.

It's January 1, 1949. Seventeen-year-old Gus Stern has just completed writing his memoir, which details his experiences (and those of his friends and family) growing up in Brooklyn, and briefly in Tennessee, during the Great Depression and World War II. Gus is determined to recount his experiences in their full truth, as he knows that most memoirs are tarnished by embellishment and forgetfulness. His memoir is honest and straightforward, and Gus generally strives to be a decent and honorable kid, even though he feels that he often comes up short of this goal. Gus's story helps us view the world of seventy years ago through a young boy's eyes as he faces the day-to-day challenges of coming of age against the backdrop of dramatic world events. Gus is a talented and honest narrator, and the picture he paints provides a truer portrait of those times than perhaps even the best of historians can provide.
