  The Clean Air Act of 1970 | EPA History | US EPA
Thus, the two key provisions in the 1970 act were not a frenzied reaction to public pressure, but instead were a deliberate response aimed at correcting the demonstrated failures of previous regulatory efforts.
In enacting the 1970 statute, Congress knew that a central element in any successful approach to air pollution control (and, indeed, environmental protection generally) would have to be a change in attitude about the value of environmental protection.
While the 1970 amendments gradually evolved to correct previous statutory initiatives that had failed, their actual enactment by the full Congress was accomplished with unaccustomed speed.

 1970 Census of Population and Housing
A self-enumeration questionnaire was used in 1970 (as in 1960 for 60 percent of the population).
Prior to 1970, studies of the effectiveness of a variety of devices for improving coverage were made, generally as part of large-scale tests conducted during the 1960s, which resulted in several coverage improvement initiatives.
The 1970 coverage improvement program included measures to improve coverage by (1) developing a more favorable public view of the census; (2) increasing the public’s understanding of the importance of the census and its confidentiality; and (3) improving the enumerators’ performance in hard-to-enumerate areas through intensive training and supervision.

 [No title]
A packet sent to an anycast address is delivered to one of the interfaces identified by that address (the "nearest" one, according to the routing protocol's measure of distance).
For neighboring routers, reachability means that packets sent by a node's IP layer are delivered to the router's IP layer, and the router is indeed forwarding packets (i.e., it is configured as a router, not a host).
The implementor must take care to insure that the granularity of the calculated random component and the resolution of the timer used are both high enough to insure that the probability of multiple nodes delaying the same amount of time is small.

 Global Volcanism Program | Jan Mayen | Monthly Reports
Although Card 1023 stated that "historical eruptions [of Beerenberg] are not known for certain," the fact of the present eruptions affords authenticity to at least two if not three previous eruptions within historical times.
The tephra fall at a distance of 67 miles from the volcano, as observed in 1732, would have been within a similar range and is compatible with description of the 1970 tetraphylla (Card 1036).
The volcanic material was spreading above the cloud system, and was particularly clearly seen at 1000 GMT on 21 September 1970 when it was about 150 km broad and extended from near 68°N.2°W to 66°N.8°E. Its illumination was denser than all the cloud systems nearer than the polar front cyclonic wave over the southeastern Baltic.
