4: Brock Road: A Rural Idyll

Sharry Wilson ECW Press ePub

THE YOUNG FAMILY SPENT THE first month of the summer of 1955 in one of the cabins at Cap’s Place.108 In August they rented a cottage in Cedarville Park on the Pigeon River just north of Omemee. Neil and Bob thrived in this environment. Neil contented himself with swimming, fishing and collecting turtles. Scott gave him a dime-sized turtle he found near its egg, and Neil christened it Fearless Freddie. Dirty Ernie was a larger turtle he gave away earlier on.

One evening the family went for a drive along a back-country gravel road, “scouting wild apple trees for something sharp enough and juicy enough for the first green apple pie of the season.”109 On the way back, Scott spotted a bird sitting on the road ahead. He swerved and slammed on the brakes. Bob recognized the bird as a domesticated budgie and quickly got out of the car to approach it. As he moved his hand gently toward the bird, it hopped onto his finger and stayed there as he came back to the car. The “blue and tired-looking” creature nestled onto Bob’s shoulder, and now the family had to decide what to do with it. They drove to a farmhouse they had spotted a kilometre back and asked whether the family had recently lost a budgie. No: they already had a budgie — a green one — and it was safe at home. Calls were made to other families nearby, but no one was missing a budgie.

Project Financing


The question of financing a project needs to be addressed differently after understanding which project needs financing: is it a Greenfield project or add-on project or is it a part of an ongoing project? We shall address these issues to understand principles or concept behind financing or funding. Since all along we have concentrated on the proposed project, we shall first overview �know-why� of financing a proposed Greenfield project and then address pertinent issues of add-on project and ongoing project.


It is essential that all arrangements to finance the project be made prior to commencement of project construction activities. While financing a project, we need capital to support (i) the cost associated with fixed assets (the project cost), and (ii) requirements of working capital to make project function, or operate.

In this chapter, we shall see various options available for financing a project (in private sector). A project is considered to be a public sector undertaking (PSU) when the government owns

11. Objects

Yaron Minsky O'Reilly Media ePub

We’ve already seen several tools that OCaml provides for organizing programs, particularly modules. In addition, OCaml also supports object-oriented programming. There are objects, classes, and their associated types. In this chapter, we’ll introduce you to OCaml objects and subtyping. In the next chapter, Chapter 12, we’ll introduce you to classes and inheritance.

Object-oriented programming (often shorted to OOP) is a programming style that encapsulates computation and data within logical objects. Each object contains some data stored in fields and has method functions that can be invoked against the data within the object (also called “sending a message” to the object). The code definition behind an object is called a class, and objects are constructed from a class definition by calling a constructor with the data that the object will use to build itself.

There are five fundamental properties that differentiate OOP from other styles:

4: Introduction

Opposition to bilingual education decreased in the early 1990s, at least within the executive and legislative branch of the federal government.

The constant need for Latino votes by the Republican Party as well as the election of a Democratic president blunted attacks against this policy in the first half of the 1990s. By mid-decade, however, organized opposition to bilingual education significantly increased throughout the country.

The resurgence in opposition was due to several factors, including the reauthorization of the Bilingual Education Act of 1994, the Republican control of both houses of Congress during the 1994 elections, the state initiatives against bilingual education in California and Arizona, and public opinion polls indicating that most Americans, including apparently Latinos, opposed bilingual education.

Opponents became more diverse in this decade. In addition to conservative special interest groups such as the Republican Party, Anglo parent groups, administrators, assimilationists and U.S. English groups, they also included the following groups:
