Sltttro Jittrtinrfl I HE new building of the University Club of Chicago is located at the northwest corner of Michigan A venue and Monroe Street. It has a south frontage of one hundred and seventy-one feet on Monroe Street and an east frontage of sixty-eight feet on Michigan A venue. The exterior walls are of Bedford stone; the roof is of green tile. Every modern device has been utilized to make the building as nearly fireproof as possible. The style of architecture fortunately chosen by the architects, Messrs. Holabird Roche, is the English Collegiate, sometimes described as Tudor Gothic. In making this selection the architects followed the line of academic tradition. How to adapt this style, associated as it is with comparatively low buildings, to the requirements of a congested portion of a great city, was a formidable problem. How successfully the architects have met this difficulty must be left to critics of architecture to decide. The interior arrangements of a commodious club-house are such as to require great diversity in height of ceiling. Unless the interior arrangements are to be tortured to suit the exterior elevation, considerable irregularity in the distribution and size of the windows is, therefore, inevitable. The Gothic style seems to be peculiarly hospitable to irregularity. In fact, it has often been noted that one of the charms of Gothic architecture grows out of the fact that a certain irregularity, as opposed to absolute repetition, is productive of the most satisfactory effects. The result is that the exterior of the building quite clearly reveals the uses to which the principal apartments are devoted.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the PublisherForgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Clas

The Prince (Italian: Il Principe) is a political treatise by the Italian diplomat, historian and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli. From correspondence a version appears to have been distributed in 1513, using a Latin title, De Principatibus (About Principalities). But the printed version was not published until 1532, five years after Machiavelli's death. This was done with the permission of the Medici pope Clement VII, but "long before then, in fact since the first appearance of the Prince in manuscript, controversy had swirled about his writings". Although it was written as if it were a traditional work in the Mirror of Princes style, it is generally agreed that it was especially innovative. This is only partly because it was written in the Vernacular (Italian) rather than Latin, a practice which had become increasingly popular since the publication of Dante's Divine Comedy and other works of Renaissance literature. The Prince is sometimes claimed to be one of the first works of modern philosophy, especially modern political philosophy, in which the effective truth is taken to be more important than any abstract ideal. It was also in direct conflict with the dominant Catholic and scholastic doctrines of the time concerning how to consider politics and ethics. Although it is relatively short, the treatise is the most remembered of his works and the one most responsible for bringing the word "Machiavellian" into wide usage as a pejorative term. It also helped make "Old Nick" an English term for the devil, and even contributed to the modern negative connotations of the words "politics" and "politician" in western countries. In terms of subject matter it overlaps with the much longer Discourses on Livy, which was written a few years later. In its use of near contemporary Italians as examples of people who perpetrated criminal deeds for politics, another lesser-known work by Machiavelli which The Prince has been compared to is the Life of Castruccio Castracani. The descriptions within The Prince has the general theme of accepting the aims of princes; such as glory, and indeed survival, can justify the use of immoral means to achieve those ends.
One of the major political challenges of the modern era has been to manage the integration of business into the life of the civil community. Similarly, Christian social thinkers have struggled to integrate business activity into their account of morality, justice, and the common good. While the disciplines of economics and law teach us much about the character of contemporary business, their descriptions are limited. Drawing on the natural-law tradition's concept of goods, Kennedy offers a fuller treatment of the moral obligations of business and the role of business in society. His argument upholds the importance of business in fulfilling private goods and meeting human needs, and also outlines the ways that it contributes to the common good.

Are you ready to have a process to explain what an ESTJ, ENTJ, ESTP and ENFJ all have in common? It is their interaction style! Learn and use this booklet with others to see the similarities between the different personality types and how they interact and communicate by looking at the four interaction styles: In-Charge: ESTJ, ENTJ, ESTP, ENFJ Behind-the-Scenes: ISFJ, INTP, ISFP, INFP Chart-the-Course: ISTJ, INTJ, ISTP, INFJ Get-things-Going: ESFJ, ENTP, ESFP, ENFP From the back cover... Like leaves of many colors, we each have a different energy. Each colored leaf excites the senses in different ways and evokes a different emotion just as each of us impacts and influences others in different ways. This energy is driven from within by our predispositions and yet influenced by our interactions with others. There is richness and variety in the many ways we have of expressing who we are. The four interaction styles are patterns of behavior that have been described by many over the years. Each style has a theme-centered internal drive that helps set the boundaries of our comfort zone in the chaotic world of interpersonal relationships. If we can recognize our own style, we can better match our energy and know how to adapt and flex when necessary to reach goals and meet others at their view of the world. Understanding Yourself and Others: An Introduction to Interaction Styles reveals the four fundamental interaction style patterns for you to "try on" in your search for understanding yourself (and others). Within these patterns are clues to the "how" of our behaviors. Find out how you consistently see to fall into certain roles in your interactions with others and how you can shift your energies to take on other roles when necessary. After seven years of working with this groundbreaking model, Linda Berens has completed version 2.0. She added two additional pages for each Interaction Style with expanded arrow pattern descriptions AND snapshots of four variations for each style. In addition, there is a new page devoted to the four energy patterns and the four decision-making styles. A conceptual change was made in the Things-in-Common section to help people clarify their Interaction Style. The focus on Control versus Movement was changed to a more bias free dichotomy of focus on Outcome versus focus on Process.

Samuel Haycraft s History of EH zabethtown and I ts Surroundings was published in the EH zabethtown News in 1869 and republished in 1889-90. The preservation of this history through its publication in the News is a happy occurrence, for in no other way would much of the early history of the town have been accurately preserved. Mr. Haycraft was a son of one of the three pioneer settlers of the town, and was born when the town was still an early pioneer settlement. At the time of his death he had lived here 83 years, and he was the only remaining citizen whose life went back to the towns earliest days. EH zabethtown is now 140 years old, and it will not be long before no one will be left whose interest in the towns history is quickened by personal memory of its early inhabitants. When that time comes, traditions will rapidly grow vague, and the knowledge of its early history and characters will be lost. On account of facts like these the Elizabethtown Woman s Club undertook the publication of Haycraft s History in book form. The original suggestion of this came from Mrs. William Allen Pusey, of Chicago. There are many EH zabethtown people both at home and abroad to whom the town is dear and who are interested in preserving its history. When this matter was proposed to them there was a gratifying response which has enabled the club to proceed with the undertaking. Quite aside from local interest and personal feelings there are other good reasons for the publication of this work. It is an exceedingly interesting document, particularly in the vivid description which the writer gives of pioneer customs and conditions. The author loved the town and its early history, and he describes it in vigorous style and with a quaint sense of humor. He was little disturbed in his writing by the laws of composition, but his descriptions flow on easily, and the reader is never u(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
