Abstract

The British are the second largest consumers of lamb in the EEC — the Irish being the greatest eaters — with consumption at around 7 kg per head per year, from a current sheep population of over 30 million. About two thirds of our 13 million ewes are kept on hill and upland farms in the west and north of the British Isles. They live on the land which is unsuitable for dairy or arable enterprises, thus utilizing extensive areas of mountains and hills, which would otherwise be unproductive. Sheep can survive low temperatures, or high rainfall, poor soil, inaccessible slopes and rocky outcrops which inhibit grass production. Ewes inhabiting these areas, provide the breeding stock from which lowland farmers, who concentrate on meat production, can replenish their stocks. Meat breeds are evolved in the downland areas of England, where a gentler climate and more plentiful rich grass make it easier, and cheaper, to produce more lambs for slaughter.

Abstract

Recent research shows that although the average person in the UK eats about 1lb of red carcase meat every week, some housewives don't make an informed choice of meat and many of them don't know the best ways of cooking what they have bought. In the average British household, about one quarter of the total food budget is spent on meat alone, and yet it appears that only a minority are getting the best from meat.

Abstract

TO HAVE HER NAME PERPETUATED in the cocktail bar of a plush modern South African hotel may seem an odd fate for an eighteenth‐century Scottish poetess. You may not even be able to guess her identity. For there are certainly not many women's names to be found in the pages of Scottish literature before the twentieth century, and none in retrospect comparable in stature with George Eliot, Elizabeth Browning, Jane Austen or the Brontes south of the border.

Abstract

Entrepreneurs need both psychological and practical support when starting up their business. These support structures need to be local. This article describes three Nordic examples of such activities designed to help women get started in business. The first case deals with social entrepreneurship undertaken independently of government programmes. In the second case, social entrepreneurship has been undertaken in co‐operation with the government programmes. The last case is one where the activity forms a part of a government programme.

Abstract

Public libraries are taking on business ventures that involve the selling of products and services. Most common are food services but these are primarily for customer and staff convenience rather than profit as they generally earn less than 0.25 percent of a library’s operating budget. The real income is in services, as in managing libraries at other institutions (Martin Library, York, PA), which earns nearly half of the library’s operating budget, or services such as issuing passports, and establishing a virtual university (Palm Springs Public Library, Palm Springs, CA) which are estimated to earn 15 to 20 percent of the library’s operating budget. In considering business ventures libraries should pay attention to the following considerations ‐ the library’s mission, its capability, the financial impact, legal aspects, community relations value, and professional and ethical issues.

Abstract

Despite the title of this bibliography, there was not a truly underground press in the United States during the 1960s and 1970s. The phrase is amisnomer, reputedly coined on the spur of the moment in 1966 by Thomas Forcade when asked to describe the newly established news service, Underground Press Syndicate, of which he was an active member. The papers mentioned in this bibliography, except for the publications of the Weather Underground, were not published by secretive, covert organizations. Freedom of the press and of expression is protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution, although often only symbolically as the experience of the undergrounds will show, and most of the publications that fall into the “underground” described herein maintained public offices, contracted with commercial printers, and often used the U.S. Postal Service to distribute their publications.
