Dulaney covered news for The Sharon Herald, a daily newspaper in Sharon, PA, as an intern and quasi-official reporter. Though a summer intern in , he stumbled onto some big stories which he handled well enough to be told by the editors: Though defunct and unknown now, Iron Age was once a famous business magazine of its time.
He freelanced articles for various publications, including Philadelphia's Focus business magazine and Black Careers Magazine. During his career, he's covered White House press conferences, interviewed Cabinet-level officials in Washington, top corporate business leaders in the US, Canada and Australia. He interviewed a wide variety of noteworthy people, including astronaut Guion Bluford first African American in space , directors of the Wistar Institute cancer research institute , officials at Philadelphia's Union League, Weedeater inventor George Ballas when the device was unknown, and a number of the inventors who pioneered the development of the auto gyro and computer hard drives.
While a grad student in journalism at American University, he got to question Bobby Kennedy campaign manager and John F. He scored a scoop and got a memorable interview with Donald Rumsfeld when Rumsfeld was an official in the Nixon Administration. After speaking in Baltimore, Rumsfeld allowed Dulaney to hop in the limo for an interview on the drive back to Washington.
A sign of the times in , sadly, was the women were excluded from consideration for the award. Dulaney was on also a team that received the Jesse H.

An ad in the campus newspaper caught her eye, and she applied at the Physics Department for a special project and experiment. It seemed science had cracked the secrets of time. It was possible to move back decades, to witness history in its "natural environment," and not in the history books.
Tomorrow, she would take a short hop through more than four decades. Today, all she wanted was a look at the machine that would make the trip.

Customer reviews There are no customer reviews yet. However, an incident in late served to solidify the outrageous image of the outlaw motorcycle club subculture—no matter how valid or invalid it may have been—in the eyes of American citizens. Details of the incident remain unclear: It was just a flesh wound anyway" One may look to the amount of contextual detail surrounding the Altamont stabbing as evidence for credibility, which Barger seems to provide, but nonetheless his account must be examined critically.
It is still possible today to view some of what happened at Altamont. In a documentary titled Gimme Shelter directed by David and Albert Maysles and Charlotte Zwerin , viewers are able to see multiple filmed replays of significant aspects of the Hunter stabbing. A member of the Hells Angels stabs a man holding a gun in front of the stage. Or, that is, we see it twice. Not so in the editing room, where the filmmakers show it to us and to Jagger, rolling it back and forth on their editing machine.
Clearly stunned by the images, Jagger walks out of the room toward the camera, a blank look on his face, offering us no guidance, no verdict on what happened, how, or why. What can be verified is that the HAMC member charged with the murder was found not guilty.
As with the Hells Angels MC members charged in Monterey five years earlier, the Hells Angel charged with murder at Altamont went free; however, the outlaw motorcycle club subculture was handed down a life sentence of negative public opinion. During the s and s, newer clubs joined the one percent ranks.
While smaller in membership than older clubs such as the Hells Angels MC, they were considerably more aggressive when it came to carving out geographic areas in which to operate. Accelerating to contemporary times, a hierarchy of motorcycle clubs has been firmly established among the one percenters: Since the beginning of the Transformative period in the number and types of outlaw motorcycle clubs have swollen the ranks of the subculture; some clubs meet the criteria to wear the one-percenter emblem but most do not Dulaney; Barger, et al; Wolf.
With due respect to Mark Watson and Daniel Wolf, who have reported that all outlaw clubs are one percenters, it is important to draw a sharp distinction between outlaw motorcycle clubs and one percenters.
Outlaw motorcycle clubs are simply motorcycling organizations that do not hold American Motorcyclist Association charters, and represent the vast majority of motorcycle clubs in America Dulaney. The reality is that all one-percent clubs are outlaw motorcycle clubs, but not all outlaw motorcycle clubs are one-percent clubs. The one-percenter ethos can be summarized as follows: While it is no secret that certain members of one-percent motorcycle clubs have been convicted of illegal acts such as methamphetamine production, distribution and sales; prostitution; contract violence; racketeering; and motorcycle theft Paradis, Southeast Gang Activity Group, Barger, Lavigne, Watson, Wolf, Posnansky, and Thompson , my field research suggests strongly that those members who engage in such behavior represent the vast minority of the one-percent clubs.
Further, of the outlaw motorcycle clubs observed, illegal behavior such as those listed above was non-existent. The dominant symbol of the one percenter is the diamond, and a motorcycle club that does not display this symbol on their colors is most definitely not a one-percent organization. As an interesting aside, recently certain American charters of the Hells Angels MC have ceased displaying the one percenter diamond signifier.
According to Sonny Barger, the Hells Angels MC standards for membership are higher than those of any other motorcycle club, one percent or not. Through the selling of particular Hells Angels MC organizational support merchandise, it can be seen that these Hells Angels MC charters are taking steps to deride the status of the diamond signifier.

The number 81 represents the Hells Angels e. These support items are easily purchased via Hells Angels MC websites and even the online auction house eBay. During my research compelling evidence emerged that suggests the existence of non-one-percent outlaw clubs that do have factions of members who espouse a one-percenter philosophy: Generally speaking, quasi-one percenters hold positions such as sergeants-at-arms, special enforcers, or bodyguards. Special enforcers are not elected positions within a motorcycle club, but rather are appointed positions based on special training, skills and abilities that certain members possess.

Very often special enforcers have U. Special Forces training and are proficient with a number of weapons and hand-to-hand combat techniques. Bodyguards are also appointed positions and those who hold such positions are similar to special enforcers in their military training, but they serve as the personal security detail for state and regional presidents of motorcycle clubs.
The taxonomy offered above is useful in understanding certain social and cultural factors that influenced the origins and evolution of motorcycle clubs in the United States.

A common thread that runs through each of these eras is that of American involvement in military conflicts and subsequent social organizing around the sport of motorcycling. What seems clear is that neither the American government nor society is attending to the effects of war on such individuals. Indeed, it appears that no process exists by which combat veterans are able to resume their roles as citizens, as people.
Because of this lack of structured re-assimilation into American society certain combat veterans have created over time a culture in which they are accepted as the people they have become. The outlaw motorcycle club subculture can be seen as a society built along militaristic, hierarchical lines, a highly ordered, controlled, and black-and-white world in which individuals may understand implicitly their role, their identity, their place in a society.
Once again a handful of Americans find themselves on foreign fields of battle, waging an increasingly unpopular war for unclear reasons. Given the overwhelming influence armed conflict has had on the formation and evolution of the outlaw motorcycle club subculture, it seems appropriate to examine if and how the role of women in combat units in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other hostile zones fighting the War on Terror changes the perception of women as full members in outlaw and one-percent motorcycle clubs.
Perhaps an additional period is unfolding in the outlaw motorcycle club subculture even as one reads this article: Future research may reveal that certain members of the subculture seem to have attained something of an iconic status. American society may well regard members of the Hells Angels MC more as pulp fiction characters than as credible menaces to society. While certainly not all members of one-percent motorcycle clubs are talented mechanics and artisans, perhaps certain members of one-percent clubs are using these new media as venues to broadcast a more positive image of what it means to be an outlaw biker, or more specifically a one percenter.
The image portrayed in cable television shows like Monster Garage is not that of a criminal element; indeed, the image is that of a craftsman. Whereas media coverage of the s can be interpreted as casting an image of outlaw motorcycle clubs as destructive forces in society, certain outlets of modern mass media seem willing to broadcast an image that is very much that of creative individuals.
And so the evolution of the outlaw motorcycle club subculture continues to unfold. On myths see Reynolds and Yates. See Watson, Wolf, and Posnansky on motorcycle club culture. Panhead and has been an active member of an outlaw motorcycle club for the past eight years. Works Cited Addams, Charles.
