Sybil, or The Two Nations is one of the finest novels to depict the social problems of class-ridden Victorian England. The book's publication in 1845 created a sensation, for its immediacy and readability brought the plight of the working classes sharply to the attention of the reading public. The 'two nations' of the alternative title are the rich and poor, so disparate in their opportunities and living conditions, and so hostile to each other that they seem almost to belong to different countries. The gulf between them is given a poignant focus by the central romantic plot concerning the love of Charles Egremont, a member of the landlord class, for Sybil, the poor daughter of a militant Chartist leader.
Disraeli vividly depicts the appalling conditions of the poor-their pitiful wages, their miserably overcrowded tenements, and their exploitation by the new breed of powerful industrialists-as an indirect plea for social and political reform and for the fulfilment of his dream of a new, more democratic England.

A powerful story of two sisters, and the love that changed their lives It wasn't a privileged childhood, but it was a happy one. Sybil and Lizzie Cream, brought up in a fisherman's cottage on the edge of the cold North Sea were content to leave privilege where it belonged: with their friends the Wintertons. Christina Winterton was the same age as Sybil and the two girls were inseparable, but it was Lizzie whom Ralph Winterton, three years older, found irresistible. Then war came to East Anglia, and so did Manchester-born Fenn Kitzmann now of the American Army Air Force. At their first meeting he is attracted by Sybil's subtle charm, but before he sees her again her own personal tragedy has struck, and he finds her changed almost out of recognition...
An analysis of the case history of maca(Lepidium meyenii) as both traditional Peruvian medicine and patentable biotechnology is used to contrast two different regimes for conducting scientific research. The rise (or revival) of Civilian Science is contrasted with the patent-driven Intellectual Property Rights regime of "Big Science". This comparison is framed within the context of developing nations such as those of the Andean Community of Nations that have both high levels of biodiversity and limited resources available for research and development.
The organisational culture of any business, industry or nation is like the software designed by their leaders. This viewpoint sheds some light on the differences between the organisational performance of one business and another in the same industry, or of one industry and another in the same nation. This contributes to our understanding of why some nations are more developed than other apparently similar nations. The tale of the relationship between culture and financial performance is primarily due to the “programmer” (leader) not the “software” (culture). For instance, the political conflicts between North and South Korea cannot simply be explained by the differences in their cultural values, without also looking at how these in turn are caused by the differences in their leaders’ behaviours. In contrast, despite the similarity in the values of different Arab nations, there are still disagreements among their leaders in announcing the first or the last day of Ramadan. Therefore, let us say, “Leadership behaviour is the missing clue in the tale of two cultures.”
When Sybil and Blanche Le Fleur were growing up in idyllic Burma in the 1920s and 1930s, little did they realize the changes and challenges that they would face during their lives. With the death of first their mother and then their father, they had to cope with enormous personal tragedy, including the loss of all their family wealth. Then the Japanese bombed Rangoon on December 23, 1941. Sybil managed to get out of the city, but there was no way for her to return to her sister, or even to know if Blanche was still alive, as the death toll was so high. While Sybil escaped from Burma and settled in Scotland after marrying a Scottish soldier, Blanche lived for more than three years under Japanese occupation. After leaving for India in 1958, Blanche made a new life while still thinking of and praying for her sister. Decades later, a chance set of circumstances led to the discovery by Sybil’s son that Blanche was alive and living in India. This is the heart-rending, inspirational account of how the Le Fleur sisters lived separate lives for more than 65 years before an emotional reunion brought them together again in 2007.
Vehicular ad hoc networks VANETs are being increasingly advocated for traffic control, accident avoidance, and management of parking lot and public areas. In particular, communication devices are being installed in more and more cars and roadside infrastructure components. At the same time, they will have direct access to a fixed roadside network infrastructure with information flowing both ways Security and privacy are two major concerns in VANETs. Unfortunately, in VANETs, most Privacy-preserving schemes are vulnerable to Sybil attacks, whereby a malicious user can pretend to be multiple other vehicles. The detection of Sybil attacks in this manner does not require any vehicle in the network to disclose its identity; hence privacy is preserved at all times. I present a light weight and scalable protocol to detect Sybil attacks. In this protocol, a malicious user pretending to be multiple other vehicles can be detected in a distributed manner through passive overhearing by s set of fixed nodes called road-side boxes RSBs.In this paper, we are concerned with this problem and in particular, how to achieve security pseudonym - based authentication. Simulation results are presented.
There are many models for emerging markets, but this one adds two factors that are often ignored and are valued far lower than other factors. In this book there is an analysis of current models and a discussion about them. Thereafter you can witness the creation of a new model, taking into account not only the social, technological, economic, environmental, political and legal aspects of various nations, but also the cultural aspects. This includes religion, corruption, as well as a nation's cultural receptiveness (based on Hofstede). Cultural resemblance not only between various nations in emerging markets, but also in comparison to already successful and prosperous nations. Does religion have an impact on the productivity of a nation? Why aren't these nations richer despite vast natural resources or a large workforce? When or how will they become an emerging market similar to Brazil, or Russia? Well, you've found the right book to answer those questions.
The principle objective underlying this study is a modest attempt in identifying and analyzing the problems of religious minority (Muslims and Christians) in India and the role of government & statutory bodies (particularly NCM)in India and the efforts of U.N in dealing with the rights of religious minority. The book is divided into two parts, Part one contains two chapters. Chapter one examines the debates on Human Rights and the different declaration and covenants by the United Nations in protecting the Human Rights of people at globe. Chapter two evaluates the history and current status of human rights in India.Part Two focuses on the ‘Minority Rights,Chapter three locates the provisions of Minorities in India and United Nations. Chapter Four attempts to analyze the problems of India’s religious minorities (mainly Muslims and Christians). Chapter five locates the efforts of United Nations and India in defending, locating and protecting the rights of Minorities. The final chapter is a concluding remark which critically analyzes the efforts of both the India and United Nations in tackling the problems of minorities, which is remained “unresolved”.
