The refusal of the central government to spend large sums on preparation also reduced the effectiveness of the plan. In the event over 3,, people were evacuated. In the first three days of official evacuation, 1. Goods as well as people were evacuated. Art treasures were sent to distant storage: Many senior Post Office staff were relocated to Harrogate.
Some private companies moved head offices or their most vital records to comparative safety away from major cities. Government functions were also evacuated. Under "Plan Yellow",   some 23, civil servants and their paperwork were dispatched to available hotels in the better coastal resorts and spa towns.
Other hotels were requisitioned and emptied for a possible last-ditch "Black Move"   should London be destroyed or threatened by invasion. Some strained areas took the children into local schools by adopting the First World War expedient of "double shift education"—taking twice as long but also doubling the number taught. The movement of teachers also meant that almost a million children staying home had no source of education.
In the British Government passed the Camps Act  which established the National Camps Corporation as a body to design and build residential camps for young people, which could provide opportunities for outdoor learning and also act as evacuation centres in the event of war. These camps were replicated in over thirty different rural locations around the country.
During the war years, they acted as safe refuges for city children. After the war the ownership of the sites was transferred to the local authorities. Over the years most of these sites have been lost, but the best preserved example today is Sayers Croft at Ewhurst, Surrey. The dining hall and kitchen complex is protected as a Grade II listed building because of the importance of Tait's work, and because of the painted murals depicting the life of the many evacuees. Between June and September , 1, children were evacuated to Canada , mainly through the Pier 21 immigration terminal; to Australia ; to South Africa and to New Zealand.
However, in and about 14, children were evacuated privately to overseas relatives or foster families, including 6, to Canada and 5, to the United States. A second evacuation effort started during and after the fall of France. From 13 to 18 June , around , children were evacuated in many cases re-evacuated. Efforts were made to remove the vulnerable from coastal towns in southern and eastern England facing German-controlled areas. Also, some 30, people arrived from continental Europe and from 20 to 24 June 25, people arrived from the Channel Islands. One of the speediest moves was accomplished by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway when it transferred its headquarters out of London.
This was made ready as offices and a number of huts built in the surrounding park. On 1 September , it was decided to move in and the transfer was completed before war was declared two days later. And changed for the better. They meet, he is angry, she is confused, they get together as she works for him. There is an attraction but they do not 4. There is an attraction but they do not act on it straight away. He feels he is not good enough for her. It is definitely not The Hampton, a place Emily would be at home in — or used to be at home in. Nix has it all, the longish hair, the tattoos, the bike, the jeans, the muscles, the tattoos — did I mention tattoos already?
Great to catch up with Danny and Ryan from Book One. Definitely recommend this one. Wonder how many of you guys remember MacGyver, the original, not the re-runs! He is the exact opposite of any man I have ever thought of dating and my mother would consider him the Anti-Christ on just his dark looks.

Emily was in a previous book in this series Off Sides , which I have not read--yet! So, a little about Emily How to dress, how to act, who to socialize with, what to major in And it is starting to suffocate Emily. Em used to adore her life as a socialite, but lately she just wishes she could be a normal college student and fade into obscurity if she so desires. Emily is trying to make a change in her life--she doesn't like how she has acted in the past and is trying to be a better person and to live her life on her own terms.
For one thing, she wants to be a sports journalist, not a doctor or lawyer as mom expects. For one of her college journalism courses, she will be interviewing NY Rangers goalie Lincoln Caldwell who just happens to be a teammate of her brother Ryan Burnham Off Sides. After she interviews Linc she gets distracted while driving, has a minor accident, and backs into our hero Nix Caldwell, Linc's brother--but Em doesn't know that yet on his motorcycle.
And she can't draw on her trust fund just yet Against his better judgment, Nix proposes that Emily work for him as an administrative assistant. So maybe Em can work for him to pay off her debt. Content to be alone and isolated, just working with metals and restoring motorcycles. Doesn't want a relationship. Doesn't really want to associate with people. Doesn't like to talk to people. And some unresolved feelings of guilt about what happened in Afghanistan.
To help him cope with his feelings he has a therapy dog, a friendly golden retriever named Harley. So Em comes to work for Nix, and slowly but surely, Nix finds that he likes her company. She doesn't push him to reveal things about himself. But he finds her intriguing, beautiful, and easy to talk to, and he starts to look forward to seeing her. And he opens up a little to her and they become friends. He finds himself feeling protective of her, especially when she reveals that an ex-boyfriend is stalking her. They have a mutual physical attraction, but what can he offer this beautiful socialite?
He can't do a 'relationship'--he doesn't want to risk caring for another person, but maybe she'd consent to some no-strings sex? Ah yes, we've seen this plot device before, and we know how it will work out. This was so well done, and the characters were so developed and complete, that I felt that I knew them.
I just adored Emily and Nix together. I wanted them to work! It's kind of rare for me to like the heroine as much as I like the hero, but I loved Emily! She was just what Nix needed, and I loved how she was making an effort to become a better person. She must've been a real piece of work in the previous book I loved how Nix found his walls crumbling down around Emily.
I loved how he stared to feel again. I love how he recognized that she brightened his world. I loved the romance that was blooming between them, and how it wasn't all about the sex although that was verrry hot! These two fit together like a couple of missing puzzle pieces! The only hurdle they had to get past was something that Nix struggled with for years--his guilt over what happened in Afghanistan.
And if Nix couldn't resolve that, there would be no future for him and Em.
From the Editor

Emily has decided to turn over a new leaf after seeing the love that her brother found and just how empty her life was.
When a fender bender puts her in the debt of the bruiting Nix Caldwell, former solider — she is finding that her new outlook on life has much better scenery. Unable to cope with the guilt of what he went through, he seems to take it out on everyone around him. But once Emily has decided to turn over a new leaf after seeing the love that her brother found and just how empty her life was. I absolutely adored Nix. I loved that he thought about fighting what he felt towards Emily, but never really could go through with it.
I loved seeing him give into it. And although some pain had to be felt for everything to come out, there was never a doubt about the way this story was going to end. I love a good ex-military hero, and Nix was everything and more. The dynamic, the way they met — the way they began their relationship and then the way they ultimately fell.
Another stellar job well done by Sawyer Bennett! A great story started nice and slow before the hot stuff which I liked, loved Emily and Nix the changes they went through in their relationship. Can't wait for book 3 in this series. View all 4 comments. Nix is quiet, menacing and sexy. He's got baggage and struggling.

She stood up to her parents and her stalker ex-boyfriend.
A feeling he very definitely hates. The chemistry between Nix and Emily begins to bu Nix is quiet, menacing and sexy. The chemistry between Nix and Emily begins to build and it is thoroughly enjoyable to read. There is enough "Down and dirty" and "Oh, we're compatible. Your working parts and mine were in perfect alignment just a few seconds ago. I felt the book dealt with the issues that Nix was coming to terms with, in a sensitive way.
There was a moment in the book when you get that horrible feeling in the pit of your stomach, knowing what is about to happen. Can Emily show Nix the path to his own salvation and finally be strong enough to face his demons.
It flowed really well had steam, emotion, heart ache and so much more. Five stars for me! View all 8 comments. Sep 15, Syndi rated it really liked it. Minimum angst, insta love and that smooth story telling. There is not much character development. Minimum conflict from outside and just focus on the main characters. But then here and there, i enjoy the push and pull, the banter between emily and nix. I feel nix character can be darker. I enjoy it at the end.

Brad Wright Excerpts by: Randall Strong, a former member of Army intelligence, tries to convince the members of the committee that a number of different alien invasions of Earth are occurring, and demands an official investigation and response to the threats.
His evidence comes from incidents in previous episodes of the first season: Strong also believes that the committee itself has been infiltrated by one or more aliens posing as humans see " Birthright ". The episode " The New Breed " is also referenced, though as counter-evidence that bizarre occurrences are not necessarily a result of alien interference. During the long and stressful meeting it appears that the committee chairman, Thornwell, is an infiltrator because of his opposition to Strong's evidence and claims.
The committee adjourns for a private conference to discuss their decision. Upon returning they announce that Strong's evidence and claims of multiple alien invasions have been rejected. In response Strong grabs a gun from a guard and kills Chairmen Thornwell, believing him to be the one blocking further investigation and hoping to expose his alien nature by injuring him.

The hitman explains that the reporter has also contracted the virus through her contact with one of the targets, and the reporter ultimately decides to sacrifice herself to spare humanity from the disease.

Rachel Carter is a complete success. However, a mysterious pair of hands emerge to grab at Carter whenever Stein and Carter start becoming intimate. It is soon discovered that the pair of hands belongs to the machine itself; It has learned to love Stein and is jealous of Carter. Stein's only two options are to disconnect the machine or to "show" the machine that it cannot love. Stein attempts to show the machine that it cannot love by grabbing what he thinks is the virtual representation of the machine a Caucasian female in the image of a disheveled and smothering it with an equally virtual pillow with goading from Carter.

Richard Matheson Teleplay by: Norman Glass celebrates his first wedding anniversary with his beautiful and talented wife, Ady. Norman's best friend, Dennis, also has a beautiful wife, Barbara. However, over the next few days, both relationships unravel rather quickly. First, Dennis walks out on Barbara; Norman goes to talk to Dennis in a city park and is frightened by what he finds. Dennis, clearly unhinged and paranoid, claims that Barbara is not what she seems, and that she is an alien creature who can change appearance through influencing people's thoughts.
A strange woman approaches Dennis and claims to be Barbara, begging him to take her back. Norman doesn't recognize her, but Dennis does—whereupon he runs into traffic and is killed. Later, after Dennis' funeral, Norman experiences the same effects: Ady attempts to bluff her way out of the situation but is forced to admit the truth: They are repulsive creatures in their natural form apparently, of aquatic origin , but since they are stranded on Earth with no way to leave, they decided to try to blend in and live out the rest of their lives as human women.

A mother sends her recalcitrant son, Rusty Dobson, to a military academy. The administrators are actually controlling the students through a chip inserted into their heads.
They want to create a group of business executives who are willing to commit murder in order to make more money for their companies. Rusty and one other student are immune to the chip because of a medicine they are taking for ulcers. The other student wants to wait to graduate, and then expose the place to the outside world. Rusty is convinced that this is a bad idea, and wants to escape. However, as soon as he approaches the boundary of the academy, the chip in his head gives him severe migraine. At the end of the episode, Rusty manages to escape by stealing the security clearance cards out of the administrator's office and disabling the boundary control system.
His fellow students chase after him, but he re-activates the system and they are unable to follow him past the walls of the academy.

It turns out that this object is from an alien spaceship. After this, a fleet of alien spaceships heads towards the Earth. The aliens in these ships live in a liquid environment.
The president is given as much information as possible, but usually in scientific or technical language. He demands that everything be told to him in plain English. The Russians are very afraid of these ships. As the fleet grows nearer to Earth, the aliens try using Earth's artificial satellites to communicate. The president asks his general what to expect if the aliens were attacking the Earth. The general tells him that the aliens would send a scout down to test the Earth's defenses. The aliens send one ship towards the Pacific Ocean, and it looks like they are attacking.
The president orders a nuclear submarine to fire a nuclear missile at the ships. The Russians also fire missiles.
