This is a fantastic Lawrence image of the O'Connell Monument, on what was then Sackville Street in Dublin. But what's fascinating is the excision of the two characters who were obviously taking their ease on the steps of the plinth...
Wanted to date this accurately, and was hoping that the shops on the left (Elvery's Elephant, etc.) would help us to do that. The monument was unveiled in 1882. From staining on the steps, it looks as if it'd been in situ for a while. I started the bidding at 1885, but see below comments for a tour de force example of dating detective work, especially from MKSeery.

(Explore) I have been reading the reports on global warming at the IPCC, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. As a business school professor, I am particularly interested in how human communities, economies, and businesses will adapt to the challenges of the future. I have been studying the polar region and Greenland in particular because I think these places are the most affected right now--by studying how communities and economies in this region adapt, perhaps there can be lessons for all of us.
Once one gets over the shocking facts in the report--for example, there is now at least one model of ice melt that has the north pole free of ice, all year, by 2013--the interesting tone of the report is that adaptation will be highly localized. And indeed at my conference, where we had a number of environmentalists, the message was the same: While climate change is global, its effects and solutions will be highly localized. Right now we see a lot of "top-down" activity--Kyoto accord, Walmart's positive efforts--but in the future the resilience of our society will be based on local creativity and political courage.

If you don't do it with excellence, don't do it at all! Because if it's not excellent, it won't be profitable or fun, and if you're not in business for fun or profit, what the hell are you doing there?
Never write an advertisement which you wouldn't want your own family to read. You wouldn't tell lies to your own wife. Don't tell them to mine. Do as you would be done by. If you tell lies about a product, you will be found out -- either by the Government, which will prosecute you, or by the consumer, who will punish you by not buying your product a second time. Good products can be sold by honest advertising. If you don't think the product is good, you have no business to be advertising it.
