Hope that heavenly, healing balm, that gift from Providence, blended with persecutions to blunt the sharpness of their sting and hinder the unfortunate from being overwhelmed, and sinking under the load of their afflictions, never dies out— never abandons the distressed. "We don't believe in dangers," says Machiavel, "until they are over our heads; but we entertain hopes of escaping them when at a great distance." Hope does not abandon the pale, dying man: in his agony he still fells life, and in his thoughts he does not detach himself from it. ...

Allusions form a colourful extension to the English language, drawing
on our collective knowledge of literature, mythology, and the Bible to
provide us with a literary shorthand for describing people, places, and
events. So a miser is a Scrooge, a strong man is a Samson or a Hercules,
a beautiful woman is a Venus or a modern-day Helen of Troy—we can
suffer like Sisyphus, fail like Canute, or linger like the smile of the

Improving health outcomes through strengthened platforms and systems is at the core of the Initiative. This vision
of sustainable progress is only possible thanks to the demonstrable improvements in the health sector over the past
decade. Less than ten years ago, neither the woman nor her two children in our story would have stood a chance of
survival. At that time, a woman in her condition could not have hoped to access life-sustaining HIV treatment, let alone
the services that would prevent her child from being infected by HIV.

THE WILEY BICENTENNIAL-KNOWLEDGE FOR GENERATIONS
G a c h generation has its unique needs and aspirations. When Charles Wiley first opened his small printing shop in lower Manhattan in 1807, it was a generation of boundless potential searching for an identity. And we were there, helping to define a new American literary tradition. Over half a century later, in the midst of the Second Industrial Revolution, it was a generation focused on building the future. Once again, we were there, supplying the critical scientific, technical, and engineering knowledge that helped frame the world....

average (2003) whereas incomes in Ankara and Istanbul were 65%
and 85% higher than the average.
Cross-cutting or inter-cutting is a primary narrative device of the continuity
style. This technique pieces together sequences that occur at the same time
but in different places in order to increase narrative tension. The literary
equivalent of this device is simple narrative transition such as “meanwhile” or
“in another part of town”. Some films borrow these verbal clues by using
inter-titles or voice-over narration.

There was a moment in the last century when the Gallican church hoped for a return of internal union and
prosperity. This brief era of hope coincided almost exactly with the middle of the century. Voltaire was in
exile at Berlin. The author of the Persian Letters and the Spirit of Laws was old and near his end. Rousseau
was copying music in a garret. The Encyclopædia was looked for, but only as a literary project of some
associated booksellers. The Jansenists, who had been so many in number and so firm in spirit five-and-twenty
years earlier, had now sunk to a small minority of...

The neighborhoods and communities that adolescents live in may also influence their
reproductive health behaviors. Numerous studies show that adolescents living in disadvantaged
communities with high poverty rates and low levels of socioeconomic status have a greater risk
of early sexual initiation and a greater risk of adolescent pregnancy and childbearing (Brewster,
Billy, & Grady, 1993; Hogan & Kitagawa, 1985; Sucoff & Upchurch, 1998). Alternately, living
in a community with higher socioeconomic status is associated with a reduced risk of risky

prices. In the Soviet Union, virtually all investment activity was channeled through the
budget. The primary nominal sources of tax revenue were enterprise profits and resource
rents, turnover taxes charged on the difference between retail prices of consumer goods
and their nominal enterprise cost, and profits of a foreign trade monopoly.
