Writing a book is a journey. On every journey, there is a start and a sometimes elusive end that often turns into yet another new start. Although this book has been a long and sometimes tiring journey, it has also been a fruitful and most rewarding one. Whenever I finish a book, I like to take some time to refresh my thoughts and recharge my mind by taking a road trip to a tranquil destination a short drive from my present home city of Chicago. Once I arrive where I’m going, I typically enjoy some good food and wine, admire...
“What would a book be like if it included the combined wisdom of a veteran shipmaster, a seasoned naval architect, a chief engineer and a maritime academy professor? If such a thing is possible, this kind of vast array of maritime experience is offered in Ship Knowledge: A Modern Encyclopedia. This book is perhaps the most comprehensive catalog of ship construction and equipment available anywhere.
The fi sheries in Newfoundland and Labrador waters began in the early 1500s, were
prosecuted mainly for Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua), and increased markedly, and
unsustainably, in the last half of the 20th century. The terms of union of Newfoundland with
Canada relinquished full authority for research and management of the marine fi sheries to the
Government of Canada in 1949.

One of the joys of the Internet is the culture of knowledge sharing. In that tradition, a
number of people contributed their knowledge to this booklet. Chief among them are
the members of the Seattle Chapter of Webgrrls International.
We empirically investigate the relation between certain corporate governance
mechanisms and the likelihood of a company having a serious accounting
problem, as evidenced by a misstatement of its earnings.
Inside The Minds
recognize the “circle of cross-influence.” They must expand their knowledge of the new stakeholders, such as NGOs, and investigate every possible means of communicating with them. PR professionals must assure substantive, factual content to ensure acceptance of material by end users. Given a continuously improved offering, we have the ability to become the primary communications methodology for the complex business issues coming in the years ahead.
Richard Edelman was named president and chief executive officer, Edelman Public Relations Worldwide in September 1996.
Since the first edition of this book was published the popular idea of bacteria to which attention was drawn in the original preface has undergone considerable modification. Experimental medicine has added constantly to the list of diseases caused by bacterial organisms, and the general public has been educated to an adequate conception of the importance of the germ as the chief agency in the transmission of disease, with corresponding advantage to the efficiency of personal and public hygiene. At the same time knowledge of the benign bacteria and the enormous role
In the lifetime of all who arrive at mature age, there comes a period when a strong desire is felt to know more
of the past, especially to know more of those from whom we claim descent. Many find even their chief
pleasure in searching among parish records and local histories for some knowledge of ancestors, who for a
hundred or five hundred years have been sleeping in the grave. Long pilgrimages are made to the Old World
for this purpose, and when the traveler discovers in the crowded church-yard a moss-covered, crumbling
stone, which bears the name he seeks, he takes infinite pains to...
Professor Maspero does not need to be introduced to us. His name is well known in England and America as
that of one of the chief masters of Egyptian science as well as of ancient Oriental history and archaeology.
Alike as a philologist, a historian, and an archaeologist, he occupies a foremost place in the annals of modern
knowledge and research.
It would be a great mistake however to suppose that systematiza-
tion of the subject constituted the only, or indeed the chief, merit of
this work. So many of the propositions which it first introduced have
now found their way into the common currency ofmodern monetary
theory that the English reader, coming to it for the first time more
than twenty years after its first pul::Hication, may be inclined to
overlook its merits as an original contribution to knowledge - a
contribution from which much ofwhat is most important and vital in
contemporary discussions takes its rise.
It is the cry which despairing, deluded humanity, in the darkness of its frenzied ignorance, has flung back
hopelessly to heaven since first the spirit of an Infinite Intelligence brooded upon the race.
With the general knowledge of geography now possessed we may well wonder at the wild notion entertained
both by Bonaparte and the French authorities that it would be possible, after conquering Egypt, to march an
army through Syria, Persia, and the wild countries of the northern borders of India, and to drive the British
altogether from that country.
