The mass media proclaimed the above as the new millennium began. Acad-
emics and professionals have been holding conferences about it for a while
now. Designers themselves have insisted on it all along. But what, exactly,
does that statement mean? A proliferation of hip hotels and award-winning
potato peelers do not an era make.
Seventy-six years have passed since Lingard completed his HISTORY OF ENGLAND, which ends with
Revolution of 1688. During that period historical study has made a great advance. Year after year the mass
materials for a new History of England has increased; new lights have been thrown on events and characters,
and old errors have been corrected. Many notable works have been written on various periods of our history;
some of them at such length as to appeal almost exclusively to professed historical students.
These routes to increased demand, through lower interest rates, provide clear mechanisms through
which a fiscal adjustment can be expansionary. If the increase in demand from an improved trade
position, combined with increased investment and consumption, exceeds the falloff in demand that
results from a combination of tax increases and spending cuts, then the fiscal adjustment can be
expansionary. Whether in practice it is expansionary depends on the relative size of these effects. Of
course, lower interest rates are a key part of the story.
Astronomy is certainly the oldest science and that of astronomer probably the
oldest profession. This second assertion is notoriously debatable, but one can safely
assume that in a primitive civilized society the (remunerated) shaman or priest had to
be an astronomer to be credible.
By the early 1870's, leading figures from both the health professions and the general public had begun to
realize the necessity for having the medical sciences represented in the Smithsonian Institution. The impetus
behind this new feeling resulted from the action of a distinguished American physician, philanthropist, and
author, Joseph Meredith Toner (1825-1896), and came almost a decade before the integration of a new section
concerned with research and the historical and educational aspects of the healing arts in the Smithsonian
In 1872, Dr.
The best things in my Ufe have come to me by accident and this book
results from one such accident: my having the opportunity, out of the
blue, to go to work as H. Tristram Engelhardt, Jr.'s, research assistant at
the Institute for the Medical Humanities in the University of Texas Medical
Branch at Galveston, Texas, in 1974, on the recommendation of our
teacher at the University of Texas at Austin, Irwin C. Lieb. During that
summer Tris "lent" me to Chester Bums, who has done important scholarly
work over the years on the history of medical ethics....
This book needs no introduction to the people of the Isthmus, whom it will most interest. I shall therefore
attempt only to point out the plan the present work will take in the general history of Eastern Canada.
Mr. Trueman does not profess to have attempted a complete history of the Isthmus. The earlier periods, prior
to the coming of the Yorkshiremen, are so replete with interest that a many times larger work than the present
would be necessary for their full consideration, but Mr.
I cannot permit this Edition of "The Ancient Church" to appear before the citizens of the United States
without acknowledging my obligations to Mr Charles Scribner of New York. Mr Scribner was the first
gentleman connected with the noble profession to which he belongs, either in the Old or in the New World,
from whom I received encouragement in this undertaking; and his prompt and generous offers aided me
materially in making arrangements for the publication of the work in Great Britain.
JAMES was now at the height of power and prosperity. Both in England and in Scotland he had vanquished
his enemies, and had punished them with a severity which had indeed excited their bitterest hatred, but had, at
the same time, effectually quelled their courage. The Whig party seemed extinct. The name of Whig was
never used except as a term of reproach. The Parliament was devoted to the King; and it was in his power to
keep that Parliament to the end of his reign. The Church was louder than ever in professions of attachment to
him, and had, during the late insurrection, acted...
'A husbandman', said Markham, 'is the master of the earth, turning barrenness into fruitfulness, whereby all commonwealths are maintained and upheld. His labour giveth liberty to all vocations, arts, and trades to follow their several functions with peace and industrie.
I have no hesitation in commending this small volume as containing so far as its space permits, a good picture
of my beloved Father and a record of much that made his life of interest and importance to the world.
It does not, of course, profess to cover anything like the whole story of his many years of world-wide service.
It could not do so. For any such complete history we must wait for that later production which may, I hope, be
possible before very long when there has been time to go fully through the masses of diaries, letters and other
papers he has...
The aim of this paper is to investigate the use of sample reweighting, in a behavioural tax
microsimulation model, to examine the implications for government taxes and expenditure of
population ageing in Australia. Tax microsimulation models are based on large-scale cross-sectional
surveys containing substantial information about the characteristics of individuals and house-
Under our proposals, auditors of local public bodies would continue to follow the auditing and ethical standards set by the Auditing Practices Board. We have considered which body would be best placed to produce the audit Codes of practice and supporting guidance.
Frank Aretas Haskell was born at Tunbridge, Vermont, the son of Aretas and Ann (Folson) Haskell, on the
13th of July, 1828. Graduating from Dartmouth College with distinguished honors, in the class of 1854, the
young man came to Madison in the autumn of that year, and entered the law firm of Orton, Atwood & Orton.
His career in this profession was increasingly successful, until in 1861 it was interrupted by the outbreak of
the War of Secession.

The Public Relations Handbook is a comprehensive and detailed introduction to the
theories and practices of the public relations industry. It traces the history and development
of public relations, explores ethical issues which affect the industry, examines
its relationship with politics, lobbying organisations and journalism, assesses its professionalism
and regulation and advises on training and entry into the profession.
This is the most accessible architectural theory book that exists. Korydon Smith presents each common architectural subject—such as tectonics, use, and site—as though it were a conversation across history between theorists by providing you with the original text, a reflective text, and a philosophical text. He also introduces each chapter by highlighting key ideas and asking you a set of reflective questions so that you can hone your own theory, which is essential to both your success in the studio and your adaptability in the profession.
The conservation of artefacts and buildings has
a long history, but the positive emergence of
conservation as a profession can be said to
date from the foundation of the International
Institute for the Conservation of Museum
Objects (IIC) in 1950 (the last two words of
the title being later changed to Historic and
Artistic Works) and the appearance soon after
in 1952 of its journal Studies in Conservation.
Why strive to be an artist? There are certainly easier ways to
make a living, and there are definitely better paying vocations.
Combine those two points with the fact that most artists are
not at all satisfied with the results of their efforts, and the question almost
becomes absurd. Why on earth would anyone want to do this? Why does
someone continue with an activity or profession when a sense of failure
or disappointment with the final product is so common? If you were an
air traffic controller or surgeon and failed to reach your goal at the end of
each landing or surgery,...
