Land of the Lost

...Summary Land of the Lost by Stewart O'Nan is a story about a woman who, left alone with her dog, decides to search for the body of a murdered girl she read about in the newspaper. Her grown children think she's losing her marbles, but everyday she sets out to find the missing girl. What is the meaning of life? This is an existential question that has been asked again and again throughout time and will probably never get one true answer. The only answer that can be given might be that you have to come up with your own answer. In the short story “Land of the Lost” the main character tries to find her own meaning of life by taking up a new occupation, but people just look down on what she is doing. We often judge other people, but when are we really in the position to rightfully do so? In Stewart O’Nans short story “Land of the Lost”, the main character is constantly judged by her surroundings, but maybe they just do not understand her. She has a meaningless job, lives alone with her dog and has nothing to do in her spare time. When she decides to take action and actually do something, she is, however, judged unrightful-ly crazy. Hovedpersonen i novellen arbejder som kassedame i et supermarked, der hedder BI-LO. Hendes jobposition er derfor ikke særlig høj statusplaceret , og hendes chef har endda givet hende en reprimande, fordi han synes, hun taler for meget om den mordsag, hun er så optaget af. Det betyder, at hun er i en position, hvor hun er så underdanig i sin......

This Land Is Your Land, Incomplete

...This Land is Your Land, Incomplete The poem “This Land is Your Land” by Woody Guthrie is originally a seven stanza poem that is often cut short in the recorded versions known to many. The poem’s main element is imagery of America’s landmarks to evict an emotion out of the reader. The first four stanzas have a much more celebratory tone compared to the final three. In the recorded versions, the last three stanzas are cut out, so as to not dampen the joyful tone of the song. The change in tone of the poem is easily broken into two parts. The first part makes the reader feel proud of America by describing some of its national symbols and declaring in the last lines of each stanza. “This land was made for you and me.” (4,8,12,16.) These first four stanzas have a common theme of Guthrie taking in America’s beauty while feeling blessed to be in its land. Guthrie describes the sights as “sparkling sands” (10.) and “golden valley” (7.) to make the reader feel pleased and almost proud of our land. The first four stanzas have been sung and used to celebrate America in most patriotic settings. The last part of the poem has been left out of the mainstream recorded versions and few realize that there are three more stanzas in the original. The last three stanzas take a different tone by describing the land of America in a darker way than the first four. This tone changes the main line “This land was made for you and me” from a joyful voice to a sadder, matter of fact,......

Land Acquisition

...Draft for Discussion THE DRAFT NATIONAL LAND ACQUISITION AND REHABILITATION & RESETTLEMENT BILL, 2011 I. Foreword II. Overview of the Draft Bill III. Text of the Draft Bill Ministry of Rural Development Government of India July 27th 2011 I. FOREWORD Infrastructure across the country must expand rapidly. Industrialisation, especially based on manufacturing has also to accelerate. Urbanisation is inevitable. Land is an essential requirement for all these processes. Government also needs to acquire land for a variety of public purposes. In every case, land acquisition must take place in a manner that fully protects the interests of land-owners and also of those whose livelihoods depend on the land being acquired. Under our Constitution, land is a State subject but land acquisition is a Concurrent subject. So far, the basic law governing the land acquisition process has been the Land Acquisition Act, 1894. Although it has been amended from time to time, it is painfully evident that the basic law has become archaic. Land markets in India are imperfect. There is asymmetry of power (and information) between those wanting to acquire the land and those whose lands are being acquired. That is why there has to be a role for the government to put in place a transparent and flexible set of rules and regulations and to ensure its enforcement. Land Acquisition and Rehabilitation and Resettlement (R&R) need to be seen necessarily as two sides of the same coin. R&R must always, in......

The name given a series is that of the most prominent areas. edition number- represents the age of the map in relation to other editions of the same map and the agency responsible for its production. Scale- note indicates the relative value of distance on the map compared to distance on the ground. A map with the scale of 1:50,000 means that 1 inch on the map equals 50,000 inches on the ground or 1,270 meters. Different map scales indicate different degrees of topographical detail. As the ratio increases, map detail decreases. For example, a map with a scale of 1:25,000 is more detailed than a map with a scale of 1:50,000. With a ratio of 1:25,000, 1 inch on the map equals less area on the ground than a map with ratio of 1:50,000. series number- is a sequence reference expressed either as a four-digit number (1125) or as a letter followed by a three or four-digit number (M556; N3341).

Lands Records

...INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND The lands registration record in Nyeri has been used for quite some time now. In the past (colonial era), land owners needed to prove their ownership of a particular piece of land back to the earliest grant of land by the crown to its first owner. The documents relating to transactions with the land were known as title deeds. This event could have occurred years prior and could have been intervened by changes in the land’s ownership. A person’s ownership over land could also be challenged thus causing great legal expense to land owners and hindering development. The lands registration department has taken several steps and initiatives to improve on the standards of its field. The research made will ensure that the lands boundaries will clearly be stated and defined. The land owners are also demanding for quality in the services offered. Studies indicate that the Kenyan government is concerned about the preparation of management trainees by the educational system, with regards to the land registration records. There are indications of how the recruitment of quality management trainees has been an issue of paramount importance to the government in order to achieve vision 2030. 1.2 ORGANIZATION The system will be used by Nyeri Land Registration and Records department. The organization is located in central Kenya. Currently the department relies mostly on manual task due to inadequate resources and technical knowhow. Nyeri Land Registration and......

Dry Wet Counties of Texas

...Booze clues As of November 2013, Texas has forty-nine ‘Wet’ counties and eleven “dry” counties. The definition of a dry county is; a county which bans the sale of all alcoholics. Opposite to this, a wet county is one that allows the sale of alcohol. However, this is the simplest way of looking at alcohol sales in Texas. Counties and localities have a identity crisis, they try to be “Texas independent” while at the same time mirroring the policies of other Bible belt localities outside of the state. As you take a closer look at wet counties in Texas, you will find that different localities have different levels of allowable alcohol sales and are referred to as ‘moist’ or ‘partly wet’. Designations are made based on the type of alcohol allowed and whether or not it can be purchased for home consumption, or be purchased at a licensed bar or restaurant. Religious groups primarily voice the arguments FOR dry counties; they say that alcohol has the potential to destroy families and wreak havoc on communities. In their eyes, limiting access to alcohol can curtail consumption thus lowering the chance of alcohol abuse. They also argue that banning alcohol sales can make it more difficult for younger individuals to drink underage thus protecting youth from the dangers and evils of the alcohol. The arguments for having completely wet counties are loud and clear. First, it represents a fundamental right for individuals to drink if they choose to, look at prohibition. All of our group...

A Wet Morning

...It was a wet morning in Pune, as the drizzling was spread throughout the city, trucks and cars drove fast on the road as cockroaches and ants, I was sitting in an auto, thinking about the excitement level, inside me. How it use to go, high up in the sky, when I had first came here, and how much, deep under the ground it was now; The cracking and vibrating sound of the auto was constantly ragging through my ears, as the auto-driver dragged the auto tiredly on the upward sloping road ; he arithmetically accelerated again and moved it on to the complex gate, to stop. I paid him the money, and he left as quickly as he came. I walked over to the building, where my friend lived, and went straight to the flat on the 10th floor; Lali , his cook and cleaner, let me in and went back to his work; I walked over to the bed room and saw three guys on the bed; they all had their faces covered in their own blankets; The one closest to me, moved and shook it off. It was my friend Garry. He opened his eyes, and pointedly asked for two minutes. I told him to take his time, and came out in the balcony. I thought 'How all these years I had seen people pass out, graduate, and start their post graduation like my friend Garry, 'How I had been stuck in a college, with a course, I had no interest in' 'How I kept moving......

Land Price

...relationship between house price and land price. The author will elaborate on the relationship mentioned above from the following two aspects. From the aspect of microeconomics, due to some reasons like changing jobs to other cities or deciding to change the living environment, people may buy a new house to start their new lives. Some individuals like to take convenience and quality of environment into consideration, and they may prefer some more comfortable places that have a good public transport service or short distance to CBD (Central Business District). According to the study of the relationship between New York vacant land price and location by Atack (1998, pp.151-172), the author concludes that the distance from city hall and land price have an inverse relationship. Thus, if they want to choose a place that may provide many conveniences, they cannot probably afford the house because of the high price of land. Then they may be always likely to regard land price as a sole determinant as land and house have a strong relationship regardless of other factors. Therefore, a concept may be shaped in their minds that the higher land price is, the higher the house price may be. Likewise, from the perspective of the macroeconomics, some governments may take some measures to lower land price in order to lower real estate price. For instance, the Chinese government released a document to change the land regulation in order to contain the increasingly high land prices as the......

Land Rover

... Land Rover Case Study Land Rover Land Rover North America had just witnessed success in the US market with the launch of their globally successful model The Land Rover Discovery. By the mid 80’s the already successful luxury car maker had experienced an onslaught from the Japanese car firms that were capturing the third world market due to a number of issues faced by the Rover Group. The Japanese firms had identified a gap in the market and were producing SUVs that communicated better with the leisure market which comprised not only of affluent childless adults that looked at these vehicles as a symbol of exclusivity but also the more traditional family sector that also wanted safety and comfort in their cars. Land Rover decided to address the issue by launching their Discovery model to recapture the lost market. Land Rover Discovery proved to be a success in UK. For the US launch of Land Rover Discovery, we need to look at the data given in the exhibits before deciding on positioning. According to the data given in Exhibit 8, the SUV intenders across the age, sex and marital status have similar requirements. They rate Quality, Safety and Performance over economics or status. Coming to exhibit 13, it is clear that the consumer perception of Land Rover Discovery......

Motorcycling in the Wet

...out the best and worst of all riders. Riding in the wet requires you to be aware of the low friction conditions that exist between the tyres and the road. This can be dangerous but if you are cautious and aware of the hazards, it is no more dangerous than any other normal day. And it is only through riding in the rain that you become aware of your own capabilities and limitations and those of your bike and its tyres in such weather. Tyres have grooves in their tread and their purpose is to remove water from under the contact patch. Obviously, if the tyre is worn smooth with no grooves left, water on the road stays trapped under the tyre and it slips. Tyres in good condition with sticky rubber inflated to the recommended pressure go a long way in improving the grip. Apart from good tyres, the trick to maintaining traction when riding is smoothness. All transitions i.e. acceleration, braking, gear shifting and turning should be accomplished smoothly. Be gentle in braking and acceleration and follow the widest possible arcs during cornering. Remember road grip is already fighting a losing battle with slippery conditions. Your tire traction is cut by as much as TWO-THIRDS on wet roads. Don't make it worse for the tyres by demanding too much from them and in too short a time. Retaining your traction in the wet is far easier than regaining it. a slide that can be corrected in the dry will almost certainly take you down in the wet. Brake gently, using more of the rear brake......

...resolve this problem and it will be more expensive and the money will use to resolve this problem will came from the budget of the government and it will affect the economic status of the government. The population of a place increases in just a short time. However, the space in a place remains the same. When the houses in a neighbourhood are overcrowded, it shows that the population in the area is too big. This is a common sight in a city. Many poor people build shanties along creeks, in dumpsites or along railroads. More than one family may share a shanty. Overpopulation in a community can limit space for housing. And in this kind of scenario we will saw that overpopulation has a bigger factor not only in food and water but also in land space. Food shortage, overcrowding, poor water supply and environmental pollution affect the health of the people, particularly the children. Poor environmental sanitation is a major cause of diseases such as diarrhea, typhoid and cholera. Dirty insects such as flies and cockroaches contaminate food with disease-causing germs. Many children who play barefoot in dirty areas and do not wash their hands before eating become infected with worms. Some respiratory diseases such as tuberculosis, pneumonia and bronchitis are worsened by polluted air. Communicable diseases can easily be transferred from one person to another in an overpopulated area. This is the some salient features that cause of overpopulation that affect the economy of...
