Lawrie Bruce phỏng vấn hai người sống gần khách sạn Bridge ở một khu dân cư. Khách sạn Bridge có một ban nhạc thường chơi vào buổi tối. Một số người dân ở gần đó thích ban nhạc, nhưng một số lại không thích sự ồn ào. Bài đối thoại được chia làm ba đoạn. Dialogue 1: LAWRIE: We're talking about live music at the Bridge Hotel. Meg, what do you think of live music at the Bridge Hotel? MEG: LAWRIE: MEG: LAWRIE: PAUL: Well, in my opinion, it's the wrong place for live music. Why is that? The...

Long-term care has been and remains the distant cousin of health policy. Newspapers
are full of commentary on what 2008 presidential candidates have to say
about “universal health coverage,” the new expression for what used to be called
national health insurance. However, one would be hard-pressed to describe what
any of them think about long-term care.
In spite of many pleasant summers spent at Murray Bay one had never thought of it as having a history. The
place and its people seemed simple, untutored, new. Some of the other summer residents talked complacently
even of having discovered it. They had heard of Murray Bay as beautiful and had gone to explore this
unknown country. When this bold feat was performed there was abundant recompense. Valley, mountain,
river and stream united to make Murray Bay delightful. The little summer community grew.
On the basis of real GDP per capita, New Zealand ranked 21st in the OECD in 2009, one place
higher than in Economic Development Indicators 2007. New Zealand’s real GDP per capita has
grown a little slower on average than the OECD mean since the 1980s. On the basis of real net
national income (NNI) per capita, New Zealand in 2009 ranked 23rd out of the 30 OECD countries
used for comparison purposes in this report.
The income gap between New Zealand and the richer OECD countries is reasonably large, and
closing it will require a number of years of...
“SEE THE BALL. HIT THE BALL,” OUR COACH, FLIP
Valentini, was telling the guys when I skidded my
bike up to the dugout at Dunn Field. “Catch it.
Throw it. And show up on time or you don’t play. It’s
a simple game, boys.”
Flip ought to know. He pitched for the Brooklyn
Dodgers in their glory years. He was with
Cincinnati and Pittsburgh too for a while. Flip won
287 games and struck out almost 3,000 batters
during his career. He’s in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
In rereading the foreword for the 4th edition, I noted the statement “There does not appear
to be much pending for the immediate future.” I was wrong. There have been significant changes
in many areas, such as respiratory protection, and dramatic changes in the Clean Air Act which
have made it difficult to use incineration as a means of disposing of hospital, medical, and
infectious waste. Perhaps the most significant change howev er has been in means of
communication, with the explosive growth of the Internet.
CHORUS:Oh baby I'm missing
We used to love so strong
Tell me where did we go wrong
Oh baby I'm missing you
They say I'll learn to forget
But It sure ain't happen yet
Been checking up the places where we used to go
Been looking for your faces out of the crowd
I've been talking to the people that we used to
But nobody wants to say where you're right now
How real are the women characters in Hindi films? This is something to debate about because values, ideals,
principles; morals have dominated the frame-work in which these films are placed. Thus, women rather than
being depicted as normal human beings are elevated to a higher position of being ideal who can commit no
wrong. Their grievances, desires, ambitions, feelings, perspectives are completely missing from the scene. They
are really portrayed as the „other‟ because they are shown as not belonging to this real and worldly life.
All of us like to think that our actions and reactions are a result of logical thought processes, but the fact is
that suggestion influences our thinking a great deal more than logic. Consciously or unconsciously, our
feelings about almost everything are largely molded by ready-made opinions and attitudes fostered by our
mass methods of communication. We cannot buy a bar of soap or a filtered cigarette without paying tribute to
the impact of suggestion. Right or wrong, most of us place more confidence in what "they" say than we do in
our own powers of reason.
The purpose of this book is to deal with Browning, not simply as a poet, but rather as the exponent of a
system of ideas on moral and religious subjects, which may fairly be called a philosophy. I am conscious that
it is a wrong to a poet to neglect, or even to subordinate, the artistic aspect of his work. At least, it would be a
wrong, if our final judgment on his poetry were to be determined on such a method. But there is a place for
everything; and, even in the case of a great poet, there is sometimes an advantage in...

The inaccessibility of the official Fighting Instructions from time to time issued to the fleet has long been a
recognised stumbling-block to students of naval history. Only a few copies of them were generally known to
exist; fewer still could readily be consulted by the public, and of these the best known had been wrongly
dated. The discovery therefore of a number of seventeenth century Instructions amongst the Earl of
Dartmouth's papers, which he had generously placed at the disposal of the Society, seemed to encourage an
attempt to make something like a complete collection.
The emergence of electronic publishing was supposed to change all that. Yet a bloodbath of
unusual proportions has taken place in the last few months. Time Warner's iPublish
and MightyWords (partly owned by Barnes and Noble) were the last in a string of resounding
failures which cast in doubt the business model underlying digital content. Everything seemed
to have gone wrong: the dot.
Reader be assured this narrative is no fiction. I am aware that some of my adventures may seem incredible; but they are, nevertheless, strictly true. I have not exaggerated the wrongs inflicted by Slavery; on the contrary, my descriptions fall far short of the facts. I have concealed the names of places, and given persons fictitious names.
There's a common belief that cyberspace cannot be regulated-that it is, in its very essence, immune from the government's (or anyone else's) control. Code, first published in 2000, argues that this belief is wrong. It is not in the nature of cyberspace to be unregulable; cyberspace has no ?nature.” It only has code-the software and hardware that make cyberspace what it is. That code can create a place of freedom-as the original architecture of the Net did-or a place of oppressive control. Under the influence of commerce, cyberspace is ...
