The most touching picture I have ever seen was taken around 1887. A young mother is holding a beautiful six-or
seven-year-old girl in her arms. Both are dressed in their funeral finery. The little girl is dead, her long blonde ringlet
curls falling over her mother's arm. The mother is looking directly into the camera and you cannot bear to look at her
heartbroken eyes and you cannot bear to look away. This picture, more than anything I have seen, says grief is not an
intellectual exercise. Grief breaks our hearts and hits us like ocean waves.
A very important campaign is waged every working day in numerous businesses across England and Wales. It happens as directors, partners, proprietors, managers, credit controllers and their staff try to collect the money that is owed to them or their organisations. They almost always succeed in the end, but all too often the end is much too long coming. The culture of slow payment continues to be a problem and for some it can be a life or death problem, at least in the business sense.
As a teacher, speaker, and author I've listened to countless
grieving persons in the last twenty-five years. Most of what
I know about grieving I've learned from their stories. I've never
spoken to anyone who mourns for someone they love who does
not want to continue loving them in some way. Not knowing
how to continue to love brings great pain and anguish.
Recently a man came up to me at a conference to say, "I want you
to know how much I hated you years ago." I'd never been approached
quite like that before by someone with such gentle eyes. He seemed
as eager to explain as I...
I was sixteen. I didn't have the words to explain why I'd downloaded and kept downloading.
Why making the film that was in my head was such an all-consuming obsession. I'd read
stories of the great directors -- Hitchcock, Lucas, Smith -- and how they worked their arses
off, ruined their health, ruined their family lives, just to get that film out of their head and
onto the screen. In my mind, I was one of them, someone who had to get this sodding
film out of my skull, like, I was filled with holy fire and it would burn me up if I didn't...
Second, the high levels of banks’ discretionary capital observed do not appear to be
explained by buffers that banks hold to insure against falling below the minimum
capital requirement. Banks that would face a lower cost of raising equity at short notice
(profitable, dividend paying banks with high market to book ratios) tend to hold
significantly more capital.
Third, the consistency between non-financial firms and banks does not extend to the
components of leverage (deposit and non-deposit liabilities).
LAB has a reputation for enormous power, yet virtually all reference
materials that advocate its use illustrate its capabilities with a single
class of image. This chapter introduces the basic LAB correction method
and explains why it is so extraordinarily effective—if you happen to
have a picture of a canyon.eep in Death Valley, land of desolation and summertime heat
in the high 120s, a narrow canyon holds several lessons
The long-awaited final part of the publication of the Corinth Potters' Quarter is based on the work of the excavator, A. N. Stillwell, edited and supplemented after her death by J. L. Benson. The pottery, although frequently fragmentary, can often be assigned to known painters or workshops, and the deposits, especially in view of the defective pieces in them, can be argued to contain material almost exclusively of local manufacture.
Fear has dominated much of the experience of the human race from
earliest times. Fear of death, fear of natural disaster, fear of human
enemies and fear of deities: these were fused together beneath a dense
shroud of the unseen and the unknown. The major impact of physics
on civilisation has been to roll back this shroud. Physics explains. It
enables us to see inside the Earth and inside our own bodies. It gives us
ways to probe and to cure.
