The space-ship Viking—two hundred feet of gleaming metal and polished
duralite—lay on the launching platform of New York City's municipal
airport. Her many portholes gleamed with light. She was still taking
on rocket fuel from a tender, but otherwise all the final stores were
aboard. Her helicopters were turning over slowly, one at a time, as they
In the Viking's upper control room Gerry Norton and Steve Brent
made a final check of the instrument panels. Both men wore the blue and
gold uniform of the Interplanetary Fleet.
Zalen Lindsay stood on the rostrum in the huge new United Worlds auditorium on the shore of Lake Pontchartrain and looked out at an ocean of eye-glasses. Individually they ranged in hue from the rose-tinted spectacles of the Americans to the dark brown of the Soviet bloc. Their shapes and adornments were legion: round,
The year 1809 had come; but the war against France, so intensely longed for by all Austria, had not yet broken
out, and the people and the army were vainly waiting for the war-cry of their sovereign, the Emperor Francis.
It is true, not a few great things bad been accomplished in the course of the past year: Austria had armed,
organized the militia, strengthened her fortresses, and filled her magazines; but the emperor still hesitated to
take the last and most decisive step by crowning his military preparations with a formal declaration of war....
Supper at My Casino With M. M. and M. de Bernis, the French Ambassador--A Proposal from M. M.; I
Accept It--Consequences-- C. C. is Unfaithful to Me, and I Cannot Complain
I felt highly pleased with the supper-party I had arranged with M---- M----, and I ought to have been happy.
Yet I was not so; but whence came the anxiety which was a torment to me? Whence? From my fatal habit of
gambling. That passion was rooted in me; to live and to play were to me two identical things, and as I could
not hold the bank I would go and punt at...
When I began writing these reminiscences of my ambassadorship, Germany's schemes in the Turkish Empire
and the Near East seemed to have achieved a temporary success. The Central Powers had apparently
disintegrated Russia, transformed the Baltic and the Black seas into German lakes, and had obtained a new
route to the East by way of the Caucasus. For the time being Germany dominated Serbia, Bulgaria, Rumania,
and Turkey, and regarded her aspirations for a new Teutonic Empire, extending from the North Sea to the
Persian Gulf, as practically realized.
My Pa disappeared somewhere in the wilds of 1975, when I was just
fourteen years old. He was the Ambassador to 1975, but back home in
1898, in New Jerusalem, Utah, they all thought he was Ambassador to
France. When he disappeared, Mama and I came back through the triplebolted
door that led from our apt in 1975 to our horsebarn in 1898. We
returned to the dusty streets of New Jerusalem, and I had to keep on reminding
myself that I was supposed to have been in France, and "pollyvoo"
for my chums, and tell whoppers about the Eiffel Tower and the
fancy bread and the snails...
Immediately on receiving official notification of the rupture of diplomatic relations between Austria and
Servia, the Turkish Grand Vizier hastened to inform the Diplomatic Corps in Constantinople that Turkey
would remain neutral in the conflict.

Having worked in and traveled to many countries, most recently as the Ambassador
and Permanent Representative of Thailand to the United Nations, I have
seen people in different societies react to trauma in various ways. While experts
contributed to this important book, Trauma Psychology: Issues in Violence, Disaster,
Health, and Illness, I share my perspectives from serving the people of Thailand and
other nations and from my experiences in the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami that
struck the cities and towns in the Indian Ocean rim, including Thailand.
Partnering with celebrities has been another critical element to the success of the
YouthAIDS model. In order to deepen these partnerships, the YouthAIDS team has
taken many trips into the field with celebrity ambassadors, corporate partners and
individual donors. On these trips, the team not only promotes the work of YouthAIDS
and PSI globally, but also highlights programming at the local level. By harnessing the
power of celebrity, the YouthAIDS team attracts a large volume of local press and donor
On many levels, YouthAIDS revealed the power of celebrity advocates in promoting
awareness and raising funds for a cause. Celebrity advocates were able to raise funds
through conventional and unconventional means for the organization. For example,
actress Debra Messing’s field visit to Zimbabwe raised awareness for PSI’s work in that
country and provided the additional advocacy needed to raise millions of dollars of
additional funding from USAID so many more kids could be saved.

The retinue of the ambassador, which was styled "grand," appeared to me very small.
To my great surprise, the publishers inform me that the first edition of my modest study on the Panama Canal conflict between Great Britain and the United States is already out of print and that a second edition is at once required. As this study had been written before the diplomatic correspondence in the matter was available, the idea is tempting now to re-write the essay taking into account the arguments proffered in Sir Edward Grey's despatch to the British Ambassador at Washington of November 14, 1912—see Parliamentary Paper Cd.
I was thrilled to find out through my husband that this new program came into existence at
Embassy Rome. I was very eager to speak with the GEA to discuss my business prospects.
Loretta and I would meet to talk about how we could go about setting up a “home-based”
business, where I could provide counseling, coaching and consulting services.
The first thing Loretta suggested I do was write a proposal that would allow me to work from
government quarters should the Ambassador give his approval. This memo went through the
Management Officer to make sure...
The review of institutions that are single-program sponsoring institutions (sponsors only one
ACGME-accredited specialty program or one ACGME-accredited specialty program and its
subspecialty program(s)) is carried out as part of the review of the specialty program by the
relevant Review Committee.
Internal review: The internal review is a formal mid-cycle review conducted at the institutional
level by the Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC) and does not substitute for the
annual self evaluation that each program is required to conduct (see CPR V.C).
The role of selling is continuing to change and evolve in response to dramatic moves in the way buyers and sellers interact. Individual knowledge, skills and abilities are still required, perhaps more than ever, but teamwork and technology are also vital ingredients in an effective organizational response to the needs and demands of customers. The salesforce have always been ambassadors for their firm, but in a turbulent business environment the information and persuasion role of salespeople is being absorbed into their relationship role.
Mời một người có sức ảnh hưởng nào đó làm đại diện để quảng bá thương hiệu công ty, sản phẩm... không còn là chuyện mới, nhưng không phải công ty nào cũng có một chiến lược song hành cùng đại sứ thương hiệu sao cho đáng đồng tiền bát gạo đã bỏ ra cho Brand Ambassador.
Hitler, Charlie Chaplin’s Great Dictator, had not only to share power, status and decorations
with his generals and state officials; he also had to bribe them with economic rewards well
beyond the rate for the job. Worse, he had to keep them bribed. As soon as they received a
better offer, all previous deals were off. This is much like the case of a Democratic Alliance
leader leaving that party to become an ambassador in 21st century South Africa.
No person governs alone. Machiavelli wrote: “The first opinion that is formed of a ruler’s
intelligence is based on...
Many convention bureaux run conference “ambassador” programmes where they actively
identify and recruit local academics and scientists who have connections to international
organisations. The cities encourage their “ambassadors” to submit bids to host events in
their field in their home city and ask these ambassadors to promote the destination on their
behalf when attending events abroad
For the larger congresses a Professional Conference Organiser (PCO) is often employed to
take on the administration behind the event.
