It was a sad and quiet farewell at the factory. Friends said goodbye one Friday
afternoon and Natalie sobbed as she left the factory that ironically had given her
some of the worst and best moments of her life in the US. She never forgot the
day she was suspended for writing poems to fight the dehumanizing effects of the
perpetually running machines. But she also found among the turning pulleys of
noisy machines the blue eyes of a great man who became her husband. A few

On this morning the sun possessed unbounded sway ; and, as if determined to
give one more warm look upon the earth, e'er winter assumed its cold command,
he exultingly peered upon the face of nature — the trees gave their wan shadows
upon the leaf-strewn ground — the bright evergreens were in all the pride of their
foliage, and the feathery tribe plumed their vests, and gave forth their farewell
notes in the full burst of their gleeful power; and winter's ambassador — decay ...

of breathtaking change and constant seismic activity within organizations.
Increasingly ... of hyperbole. At last count, Microsoft's market capitalization was
US$470 billion and I suspect that the factory assets do not add up to more than 1

their carers, who thereby bring their own longterm fostering career to an end,
