Having been born and educated in Scotland, and possessing a tolerable acquaintance with its History and
Literature, the Author of the following Work felt that he had some facilities for giving to the people of this
country a just idea of his native Land. The plan of his work is somewhat new, combining in a larger degree,
than he has hitherto seen attempted, descriptions of Scenery, with Literary and Biographical Sketches,
portraitures of character social and religious, incidents of travel, and reflections on matters of local or general
The Songkhram River is a large tributary of the Mekong River which runs through the northern
part of northeast Thailand. The river system supports a large but previously undescribed capture
fi shery. This survey covered villages within the lower one-third of the Songkhram River Basin
(SRB), where extensive wetlands are associated with the most productive fi sheries.
left panels). This ridge separates the Atlantic Ocean southwest of the ridge from the Norwegian Sea to the northeast.
The sill of the ridge reaches different depths in different areas. Most of it is shallower than 500 m, but a small part is
deeper with the Faroe Bank Channel being the deepest passage across the ridge.
The upper layers of the waters surrounding the Faroes are dominated by ‘Modified North Atlantic Water’ which derives
from the North Atlantic Current flowing towards the east and north-east (Hansen and Østerhus, 2000) (Figure 220.127.116.11,

Afar pastoralists live in the northeast of Ethiopia, confined to the most arid part of the country, where
there is least access to educational, health and other social services. Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the major public health
problems in Afar region. Lack of knowledge about TB could affect the health-seeking behaviour of patients and sustain
the transmission of the disease within the community. In this study, we assessed the knowledge and perception of
apparently healthy individuals about pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) in pastoral communities of Afar.
Paragraph 1 Delaware is the opposite of the old cliche: not much to visit, but a great place to live. To
Amtrak passengers in the northeast corridor, it's a station between Baltimore and Philadelphia; to drivers on
Interstate 95, it's not even a wide place in the road between Washington and New York; to its residents, it's
one of the best-kept secrets around -- a pearl not to be cast before swinish outsiders.
When you buy your first car, you experience an increase in demand for gasoline because
gasoline is pretty useful for cars and not so much for other things. An imminent
hurricane increases the demand for plywood (to protect windows), batteries, candles,
and bottled water. An increase in demand is represented by a movement of the entire
curve to the northeast (up and to the right), which represents an increase in the
marginal value v (movement up) for any given unit, or an increase in the number of
units demanded for any given price (movement to the right). ...
Among the 30 states with large enough survey sample sizes, 56 percent of firms
in Maryland plan to hire, more than in any other state. Conversely, only 14 percent of
firms plan to hire new staff in South Carolina, the least amount of any state. Meanwhile,
37 percent of firms in Michigan plan layoffs for this year, the highest percentage of any
state and no firms report planning layoffs in Maryland this year.
More broadly, the employment outlook does vary based on region. A higher
percentage (42 percent) of contractors working in the Northeast...
Likewise, there are some significant variances in contractors’ expectations for
growth in various market segments this year. For example, contractors in the
Southwest and Northwest are more optimistic about the outlook for highway
construction this year, with 32 percent of contractors expecting the market to increase in
the Southwest, versus 31 percent expecting a decrease while 31 percent of contractors
in the Northeast expect an increase and 30 percent a decrease, for a net positive of 1
percent for each region.
Within the overall negative outlook for public buildings, contractors in the
Southwest appear set to suffer the least, with 23 percent expect the market to improve
and 33 percent expecting the marking to deteriorate, a net reading of -10 percent. Once
again contractors in the South appear headed for a difficult year, with 14 percent
expecting demand for public buildings to improve and 50 percent expecting it to decline,
a net reading of -36 percent.
So there we were, rumbling south down Highway 77 in our Chevy
Impala on our way to a football game, when my dad became my hero
and the Nebraska Cornhuskers my team for life.
It happened, oddly enough, over the cb radio, the best in-car entertainment
in those pre–Game Boy days. The drive to Lincoln from
Rosalie, our tiny town of two hundred in the northeast corner of the
state, wasn’t exactly jam-packed with excitement. There was the traditional
pit stop at the Fremont Dairy Queen to look forward to or
maybe even an interlude at the corner café in Wahoo....
Beyond state-supported schemes, policy distortions against agriculture, especially for export, and scant
public investment in rural areas reduced private investors’ incentives so that most area expansion was by
smallholders. Policy reforms of the 1990s allowed agricultural growth to accelerate and paved the way for
renewed investor interest in the continent.
No sooner was the stout Puritan Commonwealth of Massachusetts firmly planted than it began rapidly to
throw out branches in all directions. With every succeeding year the long, thin, sinuous line of settlements
stretched farther and farther away to the northeast, fringing the wild shores of the Atlantic with houses and
farms gathered together at the mouths or on the banks of the rivers, and with the homes of hardy fishermen
which clustered in little groups beneath the shelter of the rocky headlands.
This book brings together many authoritative scientific and technological papers
which demonstrate the way in which systematic studies can help decision-makers
understand the linkages between land- and water-use practices and their impacts on
coral reef processes and structure.
The three chapters of this report cover an assessment on the impacts of China ’s
accession to the WTO (World Trade Organization), an analysis on Free Trade Areas in
China, Japan and Korea, and an analysis on the perspectives and issues of Japanese and
Korean direct investment in China, with a focus on technology transfer. These three
areas represent the major issues related to the trend toward liberalized trade and
investment in Northeast Asia.

Methanol: Short-term inhalation of methanol is linked to motor dysfunctions and visual
disturbances such as blurred vision leading to blindness. Long-term exposure can result in
headaches, insomnia and visual disturbances. There is no evidence linking exposure to methanol
Toluene, xylenes, MEK, MIBK and methanol also are classified as VOCs. Once released to the
atmosphere, VOCs react with nitrogen oxides and sunlight to form ground-level ozone.
Quang Ninh Province, situated in Northeast coast of Vietnam, has about 250km of shoreline, many estuaries, and tidal flats and over 2000 islands. The diversified nature, natural landscapes and ecosystems grant the province a great potential for tourism and specially seafood products. Peanut-worms (Sipunculus nudus) are exploited and used as popular seafood in international and domestic markets as special food of high nutritional and pharmaceutical value.

And what effect do these industrial shifts have on the employability of city residents?
The transformation has favored a more educated labor force over blue-collar or entry-
level workers, and it has been most pronounced in the Northeast and Midwest, which
house the greatest concentration of minority groups (Moss and Tilly, 1991; Kasarda,
1985, 1989, 1990).
