More > experience of surviving a shipwreck off the coast of Florida earlier that year while traveling to Cuba to work as a newspaper correspondent.

One of the legacies of the unification of Vietnam under Communist leadership in 1976 was the problem of Vietnamese boat people. Tens of thousands of Vietnamese refugees fled the country in order to... More > escape persecution and economic hardships. Since majority of them used small boats to flee the country to the neighbouring Southeast Asian Countries and Hong Kong, the Vietnamese refugees came to be called as 'boat people'. This dissertation is an attempt to analyse the problem of Vietnam boat people from 1975 to 1991 - that is from the birth of the boat people problem in the wake of American withdrawal from Vietnam in April 1975, to the conclusion of Paris Peace Accords on Cambodia in October 1991, which, among other things, facilitated Vietnam's "reintegration into the World Community" and the consequent growth of Vietnamese economy which in turn, it was fervently hoped, would not only induce the Vietnamese refugees to return to their native country but also discourage the Vietnamese from leaving the country.< Less

More > into the shore of a river, which was too wide to swim across. The thief narrowly escaped the tight spot by using a large boat. The chasers had to use a small boat (holding up to only two passengers) to catch up on the runaway thief. To make matters worse, some of the chasers did not want to go on board with certain specific others. How do they have to plan the passenger combinations of the boat boarding and the sequence of the round trips between the two opposing shores, to get all of them to the other shore and continue the pursuit? The so-called "river crossing puzzle", a famous logic puzzle, is ideally harmonized with the mystery fiction by Takafumi Takada, a popular mystery writer in Japan.

More > comfortable shelter. The log cabin has been a symbol of humble origins in US politics since the early 19th century. Seven United States Presidents were born in log cabins, including Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Jackson, and James Buchanan. Although William Henry Harrison was not one of them, he and the Whigs during the 1840 presidential election were the first to use a log cabin as a symbol to show North Americans that he was a man of the people. Other candidates followed Harrison's example, making the idea of a log cabin—and, more generally, a non-wealthy background—a recurring theme in campaign biographies. We trust the wonderful photos in this book will inspire you to build your own small cabin in the woods.< Less
