"Books in abundance have been written about houses and the people who live in them...But nobody has written a book about porches, which seems to me monstrous ingratitude...The porch is the soul of a house...True gentility is inseparable from a porch. Somewhere in the past of every courtly soul will be found a benignant porch, stretching its influence over the years. This, then, is a tribute of love to porches, and meant only for the eyes of fellow-porchers, not at all for the critical gaze of folk who sit shut up in houses..."--Foreword

Famous modern ghost stories by Dorothy Scarborough( Book )

11 editions published between 1921 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ghosts are the true immortals, and the dead grow more alive all the time. Wraiths have a greater vitality to-day than ever before. They are far more numerous than at any time in the past, and people are more interested in them. There are persons that claim to be acquainted with specific spirits, to speak with them, to carry on correspondence with them, and even some who insist that they are private secretaries to the dead. Others of us mortals, more reserved, are content to keep such distance as we may from even the shadow of a shade. But there's no getting away from ghosts nowadays, for even if you shut your eyes to them in actual life, you stumble over them in the books you read, you see them on the stage and on the screen, and you hear them on the lecture platform. Even a Lodge in any vast wilderness would have the company of spirits. Man's love for the supernatural, which is one of the most natural things about him, was never more marked than at present. You may go a-ghosting in any company to-day, and all aspects of literature, novels, short stories, poetry, and drama alike, reflect the shadeless spirit. The latest census of the haunting world shows a vast increase in population, which might be explained on various grounds"--Introduction

The State Networking Report : progress, policies, and partnerships bring Internet connectivity to K-12 schools by Mimi Mayer( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report depicts the status of telecommunications network development and usage by k-12 educational institutions in April and May of 1996, as described by the heads of educational technology initiatives in each of the 50 states and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. These data are reproduced in this report as 51 "State Profiles." Factors related to progress in network infrastructure development and usage in k-12 schools were identified using the State Networking Report Survey questionnaire. The following themes emerged and are detailed in the second section of the report: progress in accessing and using telecommunications networks at state and district levels; the question of equity in network access by urban and rural school districts; the role of state-level technology planning for k-12 Networks; how states are funding networks for k-12 education; the collaborative role state government plays in k-12 network development; private sector partnerships that support state k-12 networks; and how educators get training in network usage. Highlights from a trend analysis written for policymakers appear at the end of this section under guidelines for future action. The individual state profiles typically contain data and survey comments that address each of the aforementioned themes. Appendices include the State Networking Report Survey Trend Analysis; a brief discussion on network connectivity in urban and rural k-12 schools and school districts; key state contacts in k-12 networking; and the survey questionnaire.
