31 The Interaction of Directors' Duties and Sustainable Development in Australia: Setting off on the Uncharted Road. - Melbourne University Law Review
Auteur : Melbourne University Law Review
Genre : Droit
[There is growing acceptance in corporate Australia that the long-term economic viability of business depends on the willingness and ability of companies to implement systems and policies to ensure that resources are utilised in a sustainable manner into the future. However, Australia's legislators still lack the resolve to enact legislation imposing an absolute obligation on companies and their directors to make certain that the activities of the company comply with established principles of sustainable development. In this article, the authors outline their proposal for the creation of a duty upon directors under the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) to ensure that the company interacts with the environment in a sustainable manner. The authors argue that this proposal, rather than being overly radical and imposing an unreasonable restriction on the profit-making activities of companies, actu

Auteur : Jeffrey Kosh
Genre : Horreur
Alcune strade si essiccano quando le grandi autostrade vengono costruite ed il traffico viene deviato da desolate piccole stradine che un tempo portavano da qualche parte. Così, quando quel ‘qualche parte’ scompare, anche la strada lo fa. Comunque, non tutto ciò che muore semplicemente svanisce nell’oblio e ciò che si rifiuta di starsene giù ed inghiottire la sua fine, quasi sempre viene sopraffatto dalla gelosia e la fame per tutto ciò che continua a vivere. Alcune strade continuano ad esistere.
Attenti a quelle scorciatoie perché facilmente vi fanno entrare.
Ma difficilmente vi lasciano uscire.

Beware of those roads, because they easily get you in.
But hardly get you out.

Auteur : Andy Robinson
Genre : Sciences sociales
Al estilo de su admirado periodismo gonzo, Andy Robinson se lanza a recorrer la nueva Dolarocracia americana a través de los márgenes de una carretera que conforme avanza se bifurca cada vez más.

En formato de pequeñas y delirantes crónicas, con el autor inmiscuyéndose en la vida diaria de los ciudadanos, el libro no sólo nos sumerge en ciudades como Nueva York, Detroit, Las Vegas o San Francisco, emblemas de la desigualdad más descarnada, sino que nos descubre Vermont y su movimiento independentista; Albuquerque, escenario de Breaking Bad, donde francotiradores policiales matan impunemente a drogadictos e indigentes; O Nogales y Tucson, sedes de un complejo industrial de seguridad fronteriza y cárceles privadas cuyo negocio bebe de una oferta inagotable de inmigrantes deportados.

45 Off to Sea:The Adventures of Jovial Jack Junker on his Road to Fame - William Henry Giles Kingston
Auteur : William Henry Giles Kingston
Genre : Action et aventure
From my earliest days I have been known as Jovial Jack Junker. I got the name, I believe, from always being in good humour, and seeing the bright side of things. Whatever I ate did me good, and I never had had an hour's sickness in my life; while if things happened to go wrong one day, I knew they would go right the next. People said I was of a happy disposition; I suppose I was. I always felt inclined to be singing or whistling, and when I did not, it was because I knew I ought to keep silence—in church, for instance, or in the presence of my elders, who happened to be engaged in conversation. Still, I was not born, as the saying is, with a silver spoon in my mouth, nor did I possess any great worldly advantages. I did not trouble myself much about the future, I must confess that. If I got what I wanted, I was contented; if not, I expected to get it the next day or the day after. I co

47 Let’S Get Together on Earth Before Taking off on the Road to Heaven - Al Hall
Auteur : Al Hall
Genre : Poésie
Many people on Earth look forward to their eventual time in Heaven. They speak of Heaven as a lofty, perfect place where they will be surrounded by love and humanity turned divine. However, these same people seem to shrink from human contact while on Earth. They miss the opportunity to connect with their brethren, looking to the sky as they walk the ground.

Poet Al Hall looks forward to Heaven, but through his inspired words he hopes to reveal the interconnectedness of human life on this planet and how best to utilize our limited time here. He encourages us to cherish togetherness during this short period of time on Earth before taking off on the road to Heaven. Its time to slow down and take a look around, preparing for Heaven but not living there already.

True, nothing on Earth is perfect. Politicians make vocal blunders. Humans get irritated and angry at each oth
