A matter of taste: revivifying CanLit criticism : That ...
Let’s begin with a premise that presumably we can all agree upon: literary criticism in Canada is struggling. Book review sections in our national press grow ever thinner, or disappear altogether; reviews get ever shorter, as a baleful capitulation to our attention-deficit culture; insult and invective stand in for reasoned argument; and the intellectual wattage of our critical discourse becomes dimmer and dimmer. The Internet allows anyone with an opinion on literary works – no matter how ill informed or poorly elucidated that opinion might be – the means by which to disseminate it.

Also, people who ask this question are often in the “tools” mindset and fail to consider the principles behind the tools used in each of these powerful business improvement methodologies. Is Lean or Six Sigma Right For You? Rather than asking which of these methodologies is right for your company, try thinking about what the fundamental needs of your company are. Consider whether your challenges are in the area of leadership; is it in cost ... market research, surveys and trends

The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (1980) established the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) (fig. 1). In section 1002 of that act, Congress deferred a decision regarding future management of the 1.5-million-acre coastal plain ("1002 area") in recognition of the area’s potentially enormous oil and gas resources and its importance as wildlife habitat. A report on the resources (including petroleum) of the 1002 area was submitted in 1987 to Congress by the Department of the Interior (DOI). Since completion of that report, numerous wells have been drilled and oil fields ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
A consumer craving for classical comfort
When Corte Madera's Restoration Hardware revamped its look last year, designers and consumers alike instantly took note. After previewing the collection, Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, the founder of design blog Apartment Therapy, posted that "the store is virtually unrecognizable from what it was." In his opinion, that was a good thing.
