Jack London's Stories of the North

Jack London's Stories of the North

Jack London is the writer best known for his novels White Fang and The Call of the Wild, set in the Alaskan wilderness. Most, if not all of us, read these stories in high school. But they make up only a tiny facet of London's "Stories from the North". This is the complete collection of short stories set in the barren wilds of Alaska, the Yukon and the Klondike, written by a man who experienced the life first-hand.

Read 78 stories of adventure and hardship, white Americans and Alaskan Natives, accounts that are true to life. London's stories have been favorites of readers the world over since first they were published. This collection is a must for anyone really interested in his work.

This collection includes the hard-to-find original edition of the often anthologized To Build a Fire.

This edition was NOT merely scanned from an ink-and-paper book, like many Kindle e-books are. All e-books offered by Di Lernia Publishers are hand-edited and checked for spelling and punctuation errors.

The Parliament House of Singapore
The Parliament House of Singapore is a public building and cultural landmark and houses the Parliament of Singapore. It is located in the Civic District of the Downtown Core within Singapore's central business district (the Central Area). Within its vicinity is Raffles Place, which lies across it from the Singapore River, and the Supreme Court's building across the road. The building was designed to represent a contemporary architectural expression of stateliness and authority. The prism-shaped top, designed by the late former president Ong Teng Cheong, was similarly a modernist take on the traditional dome.

The Supreme Court of Singapore
The Supreme Court of Singapore is one of the two tiers of the court system in Singapore, the other tier being the Subordinate Courts.

The Supreme Court consists of the Court of Appeal and the High Court and hears both civil and criminal matters. The Court of Appeal hears both civil and criminal appeals from the High Court. The Court of Appeal may also decide a point of law reserved for its decision by the High Court, as well as any point of law of public interest arising in the course of an appeal from a subordinate court to the High Court, which has been reserved by the High Court for the decision of the Court of Appeal.
The High Court's jurisdiction is as follows: generally, a civil case is commenced in the High Court if the subject matter of the claim exceeds S$250,000. Probate matters are dealt with in the High Court if the value of the estate exceeds S$3 million or if the case involves the resealing of a foreign grant. In addition, ancillary matters in family proceedings involving assets of S$1.5 million or above are heard in the High Court.

Criminal cases involving offences which carry the death penalty and generally those punishable with imprisonment for a term exceeding ten years, are prosecuted in the High Court. Non-bailable offences are generally tried in the High Court. As a rule of thumb, the High Court in Singapore has inherent jusrisdiction to try all matters within Singapore.

Elgin Bridge
Elgin Bridge is a vehicular bridge across the Singapore River, linking the Downtown Core to the Singapore River Planning Area located within Singapore's Central Area.

The existing bridge was completed in 1929 and named after Lord Elgin, Governor-General of India (21 March 1862 - 20 November 1863). As this was the first bridge across the river, the two roads leading to it were named North Bridge Road and South Bridge Road accordingly.

Singapore River
The Singapore River is a small river in Singapore with great historical importance. The Singapore River flows from the Central Area, which lies in the Central Region in the southern part of Singapore before emptying into the ocean. The immediate upper watershed of the Singapore River is known as the Singapore River Planning Area, although the northernmost part of the watershed becomes River Valley. As the Central Area is treated as a central business district, nearly all land surrounding it is commercial. It is one of about 90 rivers in Singapore and its islands. It is the place where Raffles made as the 1st trading port in Singapore. The Singapore River is the most famous river in Singapore.

Boat Quay
Boat Quay is a historical quay in Singapore which is situated upstream from the mouth of the Singapore River on its southern bank.

It was the busiest part of the old Port of Singapore, handling three quarters of all shipping business during the 1860s. Because the south bank of the river here resembles the belly of a carp, which according to Chinese belief is where wealth and prosperity lay, many shophouses were built, crowded into the area.

Though serving aquatic trade is no longer Boat Quay's primary role, the shophouses on it have been carefully conserved and now house various bars, pubs and restaurants. Therefore Boat Quay's social-economic role in the city has shifted away from that of trade and maritime commerce, and now leans towards more of a role accommodated for tourism and aesthetics for the commercial zone of which encloses the Singapore River. It is the soft front to the composolitian banking and financial sectors lying immediately behind it.

Raffles Place
Raffles Place is a geographical location in Singapore, south of the mouth of the Singapore River. Located in the Downtown Core and the Central Area, it features some of the tallest buildings and landmarks of the country.

Several key buildings are located in Raffles Place, including UOB Plaza, OUB Centre, Republic Plaza, One Raffles Quay and OCBC Centre. The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, a hotel at the renovated old General Post Office building, and the famous tourist icon, the Merlion and an ultra modern durian shaped Art Centre Esplanade Theatre are located nearby. The stock exchange of Singapore - the Singapore Exchange - is also located in the vicinity. Several key administrative

The Cloisters

The Cloisters

The Cloisters, Inwood

The Cloisters, designed by architect Charles Collens of the Boston firm of Allen, Collens & Willis, was completed in May 1936. It is a part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and houses a large portion of the Museum's medieval art collection.

The collection at Hie Cloisters had its beginnings in the sculpture and v architectural artifacts acquired by sculptor George Grey Barnard (1863-1935), who initially opened his collection to the public in 191- in an exhibition building at- 698 Fort Washington Avenue. In 1925, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., donated funds to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to enable it to purchase Barnard's collection, which was reopened in 1926 in the same building as a branch of the Metropolitan Museum and called "The Cloisters."

Rockefeller had purchased the Fort Tryon property—notable as the site of a Revolutionary War battle—and gave it to the City of New York in 1930, reserving a four-acre site at the north end of the park for a museum building.

Rockefeller wanted The Cloisters to be a place where people, who were not scholars of the Middle Ages , could enjoy and benefit from seeing superb examples of that period. At the same time, he -anted a museum where students and scholars could view the collections under ideal conditions , combining quiet study and good visibility. He wanted the objects to speak for themselves in harmonious surroundings that were not subject to modern whims or fashions. The Cloisters has been described: '"as a structure... integrated with its monuments and objects, the reciprocal relationship being fundamental to the whole."

Rockefeller chose Charles Collens, the same architect whom he had commissioned to design Riverside Church, to carry out his conception for The Cloisters. Collens' perception of The Cloisters accorded with Rockefeller's, to whom he wrote in 1931: "...whoever does that building would have to work out all the individual exhibits in such a way as to place them to the greatest advantage and give each one a setting which would minimize the fact that it was an exhibit, but a part of a composition and naturally fitted into the particular spot best adapted to the conditions under which it existed in its original state." With greatly enlarged collections, The Cloisters opened at its present location in May 1936, an in 1952 Rockefeller endowed The Cloisters with a large grant to assure its permanence.

One approaches The Cloisters from the south through the park, either on foot or via the driveway. The composition is dominated by a four-story square tower modeled after that at the Benedictine monastery of Saint-Michel-de-Cuxa. The tower with its arched openings and corbelling provides an effective focal point as it rises above the entrance lobby.

Loosely based on prototypes presented cy medieval monasteries, the structure of The Cloisters incorporates into its design a number of diverse architectural elements, both Romanesque and Gothic in style, most notably parts of cloisters from five French monasteries-Sant-Michel-de-Cuxa, Saint-Guilhem-le-Desert, Bonnefont-en-Comminges, Trie-en-Bigorre, and Froville—which are responsible for the name. Other medieval architectural features are the chapter house from Pontau the stonework from the choir of the church at Langon, the apse from the church of San Martin at Kuentiduena, and about thirty doorways and windows from various buildings. The modern architectural setting was kept unobtrusive by following medieval precedents. The exterior walls are constructed of millstone granite from New London.. Connecticut. The dimensions of the wall blocks were patterned after those of the church at Corneille-de-Conflar.t near Cuxa. The interior stonework is of Doria limestone, quarried near Genoa. Italy. Sand-sawn, it has the appearance of weathered stor.e and harmonizes well with the medieval elements. The red roof and floor tiles were copies from examples excavated at Saint-Michel-de-Cuxa.

The various cloisters of the museum occupy a unique position architecturally. While enclosed within the building, all but one have open courtyards.

The Cuxa Cloister, which forms the core of the Cloisters structure, is the most notable of the cloisters. Its medieval architectural elements are from the Benedictine monastery of Saint-Michel-de-Cuxa near Prades in the French Pyrenees, one of the most important abbeys in the Roussillon region of southern France and northern Spain in Romanesque times . Dating from about mid-12th century, the capitals. carved with plants, grotesque figures , and animals, are the most unique elements of the arcades enclosing the courtyard.

The Saint-Guilhem Cloister, at the northwest corner of the structure, has been planned around a series of capitals, shafts, and columns from the cloister of the Benedictine abbey of Saint-Cuilhem-le-Desert near Montpellier. The elaborately carved double columns supporting intricate twin capitals date from the late

Building on Batik (University of North London Voices in Development Management)

The word "batik" is possibly of Malay origin from the word "tik" meaning to drip or to drop. The term is applied to a resist dye technique invented independently in locations as diverse as Ancient Egypt, Japan and Turkestan. Batik is a flexible textile technique and is suited to small-scale methods of production, but demand from the fashion and tourism industries is increasing. This volume brings together the experiences and concerns of the international community of batik producers. It gives voice to their suggestions for ensuring that the procedures of this traditional craft are integrated into its increasing global production rather than excluded from it. Building on the work of batik designers and producers, the book discusses the emergence of a global craft consciousness. Batik producers report on innovative measures taken both individually and collectively to hold their market position while commercial producers frequently annex and mass-produce traditional batik designs. The book concludes with a discussion of marketing and production innovations and tourism which enable the producers of batik to maintain the integrity of their designs whilst harnessing the benefits of commercial forms.
