"The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is a short story by Washington Irving contained in his collection The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent., written while he was living in Birmingham, England, and first published in 1820. With Irving's companion piece "Rip Van Winkle", "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is among the earliest examples of American fiction still read today.
Using information gleaned from German military records and archives, as well as from the unpublished diaries, notes and correspondence of the Reich’s top ministers, noted historian David Irving explores the strategies, objectives and execution of Hitler’s War from the breathtaking and often surprising perspective of Adolf Hitler
Chesley Irving Barnard (1886 – 1961) là người Mỹ. Ông từng học ở trường
Mount Hormon, và sau đó ông học kinh tế và quản trị ở Harvard, nhưng ông không
được nhận bằng tốt nghiệp vì thiếu điều kiện thí nghiệm khoa học chuyên môn.
Về sau, ông đã được bù đắp bằng 7 bằng tiến sĩ danh dự do các trường đại học t

Mọi nhóm ra quyết định đều có nguy cơ mắc phải một nhược điểm của tổ chức gọi là tư duy nhóm (groupthink). Nhóm càng gắn bó thì nguy cơ này càng cao. Irving Janus - nhà tâm lý học của Đại học Yale và cũng là người đặt ra thuật ngữ này, đã định nghĩa tư duy nhóm là một cách suy nghĩ của con người trong những nhóm gắn bó chặt chẽ.

In January 1954, Billboard, the leading US music and entertainment journal,
reported on an exclusive contract between the American record company
Tempo Records and the government-owned radio station in Afghanistan,
Radio Kabul. The contract guaranteed exclusive recording rights in
Afghanistan. During a five-month trip around India, Pakistan and Afghanistan,
Irving Fogel, President of Tempo Records at the time, collected original
His knowledge of jazz and popular music grew quickly, and one of his songs was included in the Broadway musical The Passing Show of 1916.
George became friends to many prominent Broadway composers. He particularly admired the music of Irving Berlin whom Gershwin called "America's Franz Schubert."
Over the past few decades, research in nancial economics has taken a high e¤ort to increase the
understanding of the volatility patterns of stock market returns. Indeed, good knowledge of return
volatility is crucial for portfolio choice, risk management and derivatives asset pricing. Perhaps
the most robust empirical regularity of stock return volatility is volatility clustering. As rst noted
by Mandelbrot (1963) when referring to stock market returns, "large changes tend to be followed
by large changes, of either sign, and small changes tend to be followed by small changes".

I came to view the process by which a central bank manages
the interbank rate in a different light a few years ago in a paper
on the zero bound on interest rate policy.
Obviously, at the
zero bound it is no longer possible for a central bank to operate
on the interest opportunity cost spread. The spread is zero.
Nevertheless, a central bank still may be said to manage the
interbank rate when it is zero. Thus, something other than
open market operations and the interest opportunity cost
spread must matter for the implementation of interest rate
This magnificent treasury tells the story of America through 100 true tales. Some are tales of triumph—the midnight ride of Paul Revere, the Wright brothers taking to the air, Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon. Some are tales of tragedy—the fate of the Donner party, the great fire in Chicago, the eruption of Mt. Saint Helens. There are stories of inventors and athletes, and abolitionists and artists, stories about struggling for freedom—again and again, in so many ways.
An incredible look at the history of Osama bin Laden and his fellow "Jihad." Peter Bergen looks at the events orchestrated/influenced by bin Laden primarily from a chronological point of view, and then secondarily from a historical point of view (in terms of impact on the world). Coming from a skilled journalist, Bergen speaks in an unbiased
The duty bell rang and obediently George clattered down the steps
from his confinement cubicle over the garage. His mother's
chartreuse-colored Cadillac convertible purred to a stop in the drive.
"It's so sweet of you to come, Georgie," his mother said when George
opened the door for her.
"Whenever you need me, Mummy." It was no effort at all to keep the
sneer out of his voice. Deception had become a part of his character.
His mother squeezed his arm. "I can always count on my little boy to
do the right thing....

Mr. Theodore Irving, in his valuable history of the "Conquest of Florida," speaking of the astonishing
achievements of the Spanish Cavaliers, in the dawn of the sixteenth century says:
"Of all the enterprises undertaken in this spirit of daring adventure, none has surpassed, for hardihood and
variety of incident, that of the renowned Hernando de Soto, and his band of cavaliers. It was poetry put in
action. It was the knight-errantry of the old world carried into the depths of the American wilderness.
