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.

Our planning system was dynamite when we first put it in. The thinking was fresh; the form mattered little. It was idea oriented. We then hired a head of planning, and he hired two vice presidents, and then he hired a planner; and the books got thicker, and the printing more sophisticated, and the covers got harder, and the drawings got better.
Compromise is usually bad. It should be a last resort. If two departments or divisions have a problem they can't solve and it comes up to you, listen to both sides and then pick one or the other. This places solid accountability on the winner to make it work. Condition your people to avoid compromise.
