Story
The North Carolina Executive Mansion, commonly called the Governor's Mansion, was built in the late nineteenth century on Blount Street in downtown Raleigh. The first inhabitant of the mansion was Governor Daniel G. Fowle. He only lived there for 3 months due to his death in April 1891. Before his death he did order the construction of a be to accommodate himself and one of his children who had a tendency of climbing into bed with him at night to sleep. The bed stayed in the mansion for over three-quarters of a century, until Gov. Bob Scott, who was elected in 1968, had it moved to storage because he wanted a more comfortable bed. Shortly after buying a new bed, Governor Scott and his wife were reading in bed when around 10 o'clock they heard a strange knocking coming from the wall behind them. Scott and his wife thought little of it, but it kept happening night after night at the same time. Governor Scott assumed that it was just pipes running, but when he asked for the maintenance staff to see if something could be done, were no pipes running behind that section of the wall. The governor and wife were confuzed until Governor Fowle's elderly daughter paid a courtesy call to Governor Scott, like she did with all the new Governors when they took office. And, according to Governor Scott, part of the social call involved her demanding

When learning that Governor Fowle’s bed was in her room she said ‘Of course Mom puts the dead guy’s bed in my room.’ on Facebook. So far, none of the Coopers or their guests have seen or heard anything unusual, except for their pet sitter who swears to have heard strange sounds at night, including what sounded like a voice saying “hello” or “Helen.” For reference, Helen was the name of one of Fowle’s daughters who lived with him in the

Controversies Around Dam Reservoirs Benefits, Costs and Future

...DOI: 10.2478/v10104-010-0001-4 Vol. 9 No 2-4, 141-148 2009 Controversies around dam reservoirs: benefits, costs and future Ryszard Kornijów1, 2 of Life Sciences in Lublin, Department of Hydrobiology, B. Dobrzańskiego 37, 20-262 Lublin, Poland, e-mail: ryszard.kornijow@up.lublin.pl 2Sea Fisheries Institute in Gdynia, Department of Fisheries Oceanography and Marine Ecology, H. Kołłątaja 1, 81-332 Gdynia, Poland 1University Abstract The paper reviews the social and environmental problems concerning the functioning of dams including their local and global effects. Particularly emphasized is a trend toward removing dams in many countries. These are issues of significant importance, particularly in view of the current discussions on justification of investing in new dams, and seeking safe and economical solutions for aging dams, risky in their further operation. Key words: dam building and removal, local and global effects. „Dams are both a blessing and a curse” Dr. Ute Collier 1. Introduction The above citation accurately, although briefly, reflects general perception of dams. On the one hand, they have undoubtedly played, and still play a significant role in the development of the civilization. On the other hand, their construction and functioning entail incurring immense social costs, often disproportionate to the resulting advantages. Dams have also caused vast irreversible damage in the natural environment. Therefore, there is growing opposition against constructing...

Case Study Dharavi Development

...Modernizing Dharavi: If you build, will they come? Looking outside from his office at West Bandra overlooking the Arabian Sea, Mr. Mukesh Mehta sighed; he recalled when he first had the dream of creating a modern Dharavi – free of slums, where the poor, hardworking people will finally be able to enjoy a better quality of life and be integrated with the mainstream citizens. Throughout the history of the world, migrants have moved to the urban areas in search of a job so as to provide for their families. In most cases, they can find work, but not a place to live. Hence, without help from either developers or the government, they are forced to become squatters, building for themselves on undesirable and illegal properties. Dharavi, at the heart Mumbai, with 600,000 residents, is one such place and one of Asia’s largest slums. Mr. Mehta’s goal is to provide a decent standard of living to the people of Dharavi. He established himself as a celebrated realtor by building expensive custom homes for the rich in Long Island, New York, and now longed to build homes for the poor in the slums. He shared this dream with his family too. His son, Shyam, was very enthusiastic and regarded him as a “versatile” person who is capable of serving both the rich and the poor, while his wife considered him a “confused” person. He is, however, dedicated to pursue his dream of seeing that his heroes are living a far better life in a revamped Dharavi, free of slum. Mr. Mehta has been the management......

Law Essay

...Copyright and the Internet Hector L MacQueen*(* LLB (Hons), PhD, FRSE, Professor of Private Law, University of Edinburgh, email hector.macqueen@ed.ac.uk. This is a substantially revised, updated and rewritten version of the chapter which appeared under the same title in L Edwards and C Waelde (eds), Law and the Internet: Regulating Cyberspace (1997). I am grateful to those who commented upon that earlier version, to those who sent me information about developments on the Internet (especially Dr Athol Murray), and to the editors once again for their help, guidance and patience over a prolonged period.) Introduction A major issue for copyright lawyers at the present time is how to deal with the rapid development of the Internet and the prospect of the ‘information superhighway’, world-wide telecommunications systems which permit the rapid, indeed virtually instantaneous transmission around the world, at times chosen as much by individual recipients as by transmitters, of information and entertainment in all media - print, pictures still and moving, sound, and combinations thereof. The issues are manifold. Is the ease of perfect reproduction and manipulation of material in the digital form used by our communications systems the death-knell of the whole basis of copyright? Are we at least going to have to reconsider such fundamentals of copyright law as what constitutes publication, copying and public performance, or the old distinctions between categories of work such as......

Understanding Cross-Cultural Management

...Understanding Cross-Cultural Management Second Edition Marie-Joëlle Browaeys & Roger Price Part One CULTURE AND MANAGEMENT Concept 1.1 Facets of culture Introduction to Part One Setting the scene This introductory chapter will give an outline of the research in the field of culture and management, which in turn serves as a framework for Part One. The concept of culture Many experts in their fields have wracked their brains to come up with what they consider to be their concept of ‘culture’. Those working in the field of cultural anthropology, alone, for example, have come up with a long list of definitions of the concept, based on their analysis of ethnological, social, psychological and linguistic data. The attempt made by Bodley (1994) to summarize these (Table I.1) gives an idea of all the facets of culture that need to be taken into account from an anthropological perspective. Although acknowledging the multiplicity of cultures, the authors of this book consider that the fundamental aspect of culture is that it is something all humans learn in one way or another. It is not something people inherit, but rather a code of attitudes, norms and values, a way of thinking that is learnt within a social environment. Family, the social environment, school, friends, work – all these help to form this code and determine how people see themselves and the world. The national culture and the particular region which people live in also help to shape a...
