  • The sword of Harry Gilmor, the Confederate colonel, which General Wallace had given me, had aroused Graham's interest so much that I presented it to him; I had, prior to this, presented to Curtis, my Creedmoor rifle trophies. I had become tired of telling the history of that sword and how it came into my possession, having no other evidence than my word for the truth of the story, since I had lost General Wallace's letter.

  • On the eve of my departure on retirement after some 33 years of work in the service of the OECD Development Assistance Committee -- since 1975 as DCD Director -- I naturally ask myself: What was done over all these years and was it worth it? Rather than burdening the system with subjective impressions and reminiscences, I felt that it would be more sensible for me to leave behind an objective, matter of fact account of the DAC's activities and the related institutional and policy developments. This may even be of some use for the coming...

  • IMS – the IP Multimedia Subsystem of the 3GPP family of telecommunication standards – may very well be at the same time the worst and the best kept secret of the telecom world. “Secret” because it is essentially designed to be invisible – the modern version of the infrastructure that delivers communication to the world. “Worst kept” because it has dominated the strategies for communication evolution in the past years, and has thus been very visible, at least to those in the industry.

  • I have no hesitation in commending this small volume as containing so far as its space permits, a good picture of my beloved Father and a record of much that made his life of interest and importance to the world. It does not, of course, profess to cover anything like the whole story of his many years of world-wide service. It could not do so. For any such complete history we must wait for that later production which may, I hope, be possible before very long when there has been time to go fully through the masses of diaries, letters and other papers he has...

  • Fifty years ago! Gracious me! It makes me think of my age to talk of it. Yes, just fifty years ago was enacted the greatest tragedy the world ever saw, THE CIVIL WAR. I entered the service at twenty and one-half years of age and served three and one-half years. At different times I have told of some of my experiences, which seemed to interest. Sometimes I have talked to literary men, story writers, who have expressed a desire to write me up in magazines and newspapers, but lack of the romantic in my make up, notwithstanding romance might be seen in...

  • The activities in this document aim to outline the various stages in the teaching of writing that a teacher needs to consider. No-one would advocate giving a learner an empty sheet of paper and a title and telling them to write a story or a report, except in an examination for which they had been fully prepared. The fear of that empty page is very real to many learners who have no idea how to begin the process and feel they are devoid of ideas and expertise; they can become demoralised, lose confidence and be put off writing for life unless they are explicitly taught strategies to cope....

  • A work on electricity needs little recommendation to stimulate the interest of the general reader. Electricity in its manifold applications is so large a factor in the comfort and convenience of our daily life, so essential to the industrial organization which embraces every dweller in a civilized land, so important in .the development and extension of civilization itself, that a knowledge of its principles and the means through which they are directed to the service of mankind should be a part of the mental equipment of everyone who pretends to education in its truest sense.

  • 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.

  • Ten thousand persons in New York looked skyward at the first rumble of sound. The flash caught them that way, seared them to cinder, liquefied their eyeballs, brought their vitals boiling out of the fissures of their bodies. They were the lucky ones. The rest died slowly, their monument the rubble which had once been a city. Of all that, Case Damon knew nothing. Rocketing up in the self-service elevator to his new cloud-reaching apartment in San Francisco, his thoughts were all on the girl who would be waiting for him. "She loves me, she loves me not," he said to himself.

  • "Nothing ever happens to me!" Larry Manahan grumbled under his breath, sitting behind his desk at the advertising agency which employed his services in return for the consideration of fifty a week. "All the adventure I know is what I see in the movies, or read about in magazines. What wouldn't I give for a slice of real life!" Unconsciously, he tensed the muscles of his six feet of lean, hard body. His crisp, flame-colored hair seemed to bristle; his blue eyes blazed. He clenched a brown hammer of a fist. Larry felt himself an energetic, red-blooded square peg, badly...

Brand, youngest officer of the division to wear the triple-V for distinguished service, sat down and stared curiously at his superior. He hadn't the remotest idea why he had been recalled from leave: but that it was on a matter of some importance he was sure. He hunched his big shoulders and awaited orders. "Captain Bowen," said Stone. "I want you to go to Jupiter as soon as you can arrange to do so, fly low over the red...

  • I do not wish to appear prejudiced against scientists. I am not prejudiced, but I have observed the scientific mind in action, on a great many occasions, and I find it rather incomprehensible. It is true that there are men with a scientific turn of mind who, at the same time, you can feel safe to stand with shoulder to shoulder, in an emergency. Young Hendricks, who was my junior officer on theErtak, back in those early days of the Special Patrol Service, about which I have written so much, was one of these. Nor, now that I come to...

The small cabin was thickly redolent with spicy odors and Rip sniffed appreciatively. "You're sure going to be about the best smelling Terran who ever set boot on Sargol's soil," his soft slur of speech ended in a rich chuckle.

  • Reproductive rights advocates have been put in a particularly challenging position because public debate about ART has been dominated by abortion politics. The Religious Right has succeeded in centralizing the discussion on the moral status of the embryo, obscuring a broader set of issues. Put in a defensive position, the reproductive rights movement has, until recently, not had the opportunity to grapple internally with the complexities of ART use, and has tended to fall back on traditional models of individual autonomy and choice. With increasing numbers of U.S.

  • There is a major problem in writing this book. To tell the story fairly, a very large number of complexities must be explained. For example, Chapter 2 discusses Enron’s Year 2000 Annual Report. It is difficult to study that report and conclude that the firm is heading toward collapse. On the other hand, it is not difficult to identify footnotes that are vague and incomplete (of course, the author also has the benefit of hindsight). Why write a casebook describing and evaluating events about which there have been criminal trials and extensive hearings?...
