    876 words
    It is a quiet, Saturday afternoon, and the overcast humidity of the air gives me an obscene sense of nonchalance. Time in hand, I peruse a 'Survival Handbook', a sort of "Pessimist's Guide to the World." It was given to me as a Christmas present, and its perverse implication of Murphy's Law amuses me.

A smile creeps onto my face as I remember the one objective truth abou...

    Canadian Pacific Railway Development This article was about the Canadian Pacific Railway. For over 100 years, the railway has practiced a tonnage based shipping model. Trains were to wait in their yards until there were enough shipments to justify a train journey from one point to another. The result of this method was that very few trains traveled, and that the trains that did travel were never on a regular schedule. This resulted in much inefficiency for the company. Some of the issues were t...

The changes that take place become a part of the original song and eventually the music takes on a different form. Over the span of years the authors' names are forgotten. The composer who wishes to create a new spir...
