  • The question of the Spanish succession. 196. The king of Spain, Charles II, was childless and brotherless, and Europe had long been discussing what would become of his vast realms when his sickly existence should come to an end. Louis had married one of his sisters, and the emperor, Leopold I, another, and these two ambitious rulers had been considering for some time how they might divide the Spanish possessions between the Bourbons and the Hapsburgs. But when Charles II died, in 1700, it was discovered that he had left a will in which he made Louis' younger grandson,...

  • It was a beautiful evening at the close of a warm, luscious day in old Spain. It was such an evening as one would select for trysting purposes. The honeysuckle gave out the sweet announcement of its arrival on the summer breeze, and the bulbul sang in the dark vistas of olive-trees,--sang of his love and his hope, and of the victory he anticipated in the morrow's bulbul-fight, and the plaudits of the royal couple who would be there. The pink west paled away to the touch of twilight, and the soft zenith was sown with stars coming like celestial fire-flies on the breast of...

  • During the last half of the second century before Christ Rome was undisputed mistress of the civilised world. A brilliant period of foreign conquest had succeeded the 300 years in which she had overcome her neighbours and made herself supreme in Italy. In 146 B.C. she had given the death-blow to her greatest rival, Carthage, and had annexed Greece. In 140 treachery had rid her of Viriathus, the stubborn guerilla who defied her generals and defeated her armies in Spain.

  • A. Shahrjerdi and F. Mustapha co-authored the fourth chapter, which discusses second-order shear deformation theory applied to a plate with simply supported boundary conditions. The material properties of the plate are graded in the thickness direction by a power law distribution and the equations of motion are derived via the energy method and then solved by applying Navier's method. It is interesting to note that the authors demonstrate that the results of the second-order theory are very close to those reported in the literature using a third-order theory....

  • Gazing across the broader field of universal history, one comes more and more to overlook the merely temporary, constantly shifting border lines of states, and to see Western Europe as a whole, to watch its nations as a single people guided by similar developments of the mind, impelled by similar stirrings of the heart, taking part in but a single story, the marvellous tale of man's advance. This sense of an all-enfolding unity, an ever-advancing common destiny, sinks weakest perhaps in the period we now approach. The nations seem sharply separated in their careers.

  • Whilst some men with a PSA below the currently accepted “normal” age-specific threshold will have prostate cancer, it is also true that many men with a PSA above this threshold will not have prostate cancer as an elevated PSA can be attributable to a number of benign conditions as well apart from the presence of prostate cancer. Considerable efforts have been made to improve the sensitivity and specificity of PSA testing including the adoption of free-to-total PSA ratios, %free PSA, [-2]pro-PSA, PSA density and PSA velocity.

  • Spain, as every one knows, was the country behind the discovery of America. Few people know, however, what an important part the beautiful city of Granada played in that famous event. It was in October, 1492, that Columbus first set foot on the New World and claimed it for Spain. In January of that same year another territory had been added to that same crown; for the brave soldier-sovereigns, Ferdinand and Isabella, had conquered the Moorish kingdom of Granada in the south and made it part of their own country.

  • In this regard, available evidence shows that while morphine and heroin are liable to attenuate the immune response, long-acting opioids that are used in withdrawal treatment, such as methadone and buprenorphine, are largely devoid of immunosuppressive activity. Opioids can also influence the immune function through the activation of the descending pathways of the hypothalamus-pituitary axis (HPA) and the sympathetic nervous system (Vallejo et al., 2004).

  • These banking successes should be celebrated. They pave the way for broadening access to finance for hundreds of millions, perhaps even billions, of low-income people who today lack ready access to formal financial services. Such access on its own is not yet proven to increase economic growth or to reduce poverty on a large-scale level—and, as a general proposition, we doubt that it will on its own.

  • Accounting standards around the world have evolved over centuries of business and capital market development. In this process, accounting standards historically were designed to meet the needs of each nation’s capital markets. Those stan- dards that were found to work well in the legal, cultural, political and economic context of each nation became the “generally accepted accounting principles,” or GAAP, for that particular jurisdiction. Naturally, different norms in each nation led to different GAAPs in each nation.
