Tan and Marsden use the analogy of rabbits, representing the British colonists, and bandicoots, representing the indigenous inhabitants, to make a pointed comment on the damage done to those losing their land and way of life. Tan and Marsden are able to leverage this understanding into a poignant and evocative depiction of the conflict resulting from white settlement and the resultant carnage. This is not a picture book for young children, or perhaps it is.
Was the LMS too big? Frederic Stansfield In his reply to my earlier letter about the size of the LMS September issueDoug Landau November issue makes many interesting points describing the company's engineering innovations.
But two of Landau's examples show how engineering developments within the LMS were subordinated to business issues. LMS management's rejection of electrification proposals, because of insufficient return on capital, is unsurprising when neither the scheme nor the one linked London with a major city such as Birmingham.
Also, the belt repair system to which Landau refers represented the development in Britain of "scientific management" techniques. As he indicates, this system had the business aim of reducing repair times and costs.
Letter writer would agree in general with Landau's observation that the Southern Railway was the most forward looking of the 'Big Four'. However, in my previous letter I compared the LMS not with its British contemporaries but with other European railways, which received more government support.

This pamphlet brought together some elements of both articles. The speaker 29 Novemberon whose input the pamphlet reported, was Col. O'Brien, the electrical engineer of the LYR. One voice from the floor: Hawksworth' - clearly a gathering worthy of record: In those relatively early days of electrification people naturally drew on such examples as were available: Paul were O'Brien's favourites on that occasion.
O'Brien and his audience touched on some crucial issues. O'Brien revealed, or claimed, that the Liverpool-Sandhills stretch alone ie first station out of Liverpool Exchange shared occupancy with a goods traffic "Greater thanALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK () - Right off the bat, I could see that this Italy/Spain co-production was going to be a very interesting giallo flick.
It stars a cast of giallo pros, it's directed by the man who made my favorite giallo film of all time (TORSO - ; the majority of his films have never let me down) and it begins with one of the most surreal dream sequences I have seen in.
