Mrs. Rachel Lynde lived just where the Avonlea main road dipped down into a little hollow, fringed with alders and ladies’ eardrops and traversed by a brook that had its source away back in the woods of the old Cuthbert place; it was reputed to be an intricate, headlong brook in its earlier course through those woods, with dark secrets of pool and cascade; but by the time it reached Lynde’s Hollow it was a quiet, well-conducted little stream, for not even a brook could run past Mrs. Rachel Lynde’s door without due regard for decency and decorum; it...

Using a more control-oriented terminology, the point-to-point motion task is
a stabilization problem for an (equilibrium) point in the robot state space. For a
car-like robot, two control inputs are available for adjusting four conguration
variables, namely the two cartesian coordinates characterizing the position of
a reference point on the vehicle, its orientation, and the steering wheels angle.
More in general, for a car-like robot towing N trailers, we have two inputs for
reconguring n = 4+N states.
He certainly looked troubled. It is hard to resist the entreaty in a young bride’s uplifted face. But this time he could not help himself, and he said: “I am dreadful sorry, but I must ride over to Fairbanks to-night. Mr. Pierson has given me an imperative order to conclude a matter of...
On the edge of a green plain around which rise the first steps of the immense amphitheatre of the Alps, a little
castled city enthroned on a solitary hill watches since a thousand years the eternal and surpassing spectacle.
Around its feet a river runs, a silver girdle bending northward between pastures green, while eastward over the
towering azure heights the sunrise waves its flags of rose and gold.
In the dim hours of twilight or by a cloudy moonlight, the city pitched amid the drifting aerial heights seems
built itself of air and cloud, evanescent and unreal....

The history of the English people would have been a great and a noble history whatever king had ruled over the land seven hundred years ago. But the history as we know it, and the mode of government which has actually grown up among us is in fact due to the genius of the great king by whose will England was guided from 1154 to 1189. He was a foreign king who never spoke the English tongue, who lived and moved for the most part in a foreign camp, surrounded with a motley host of Brabançons and hirelings; and...

Larry and Janet Garrison, twelve-year-old fraternal twins, were traveling with their parents in western Virginia. Mr. John Garrison was driving his green sport utility vehicle north on Skyline Drive through the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. The March scenery was magnificent. Spring flowers were already in bloom. Mr. Garrison had to drive slowly because deer would occasionally dart from wooden areas across the highway.
