In what seems like a big complement on our powers of imagination , Unix System Laboratories chief Roel Pieper and Chuck Reilly , vice president of operations at the Open Software Foundation have been re-writing history , claiming at Utrecht a few weeks back that the press made up the entire Unix Wars all by themselves : ` they never happened ' pleaded Rielly , who did n't join OSF until 1989 , after some of the worst was over . Anyway , Unix now faces a much tougher fight for survival against Microsoft Corp -- or are we imagining things ? A determined outbreak of agreement between Pieper and Reilly during their combined keynote led Hans Strach-Zimmerman of Grassbrun , Munich-based iXos GmbH to ask if plans for a merger were back on again : ` The reasons for a merger three or four years ago are now history , ' they said : ` we both have our own programmes working in parallel .

It got incredibly painful , and in bed at night I could hear a munching sound , definitely coming from me , which stopped for a bit if I touched the swelling . ` I went to a third doctor and said , ` I 've got a parasite , probably a botfly larva , whose life-cycle is … ' and the doctor said : ` Botfly ? Never heard of it . It 's an infected sebaceous cyst . You 're imagining the noise . But I can see you are worried so I 'll get you a hospital appointment . ' ` At the hospital , the registrar said , ` No , it 's a sebaceous cyst , and we would n't normally operate , but since you are worried we 'll cut it out , ' and gave me local anaesthetic . As she was cutting away she said , ` Goodness me , you 're absolutely right , there 's something wriggling about … ' and pulled out this horrible , fat , bristly grub three quarters of an inch long . ' It could have been a Texas screw-worm , another cattle pest which occasionally gets people by mistake -- the battered remains were hard to identify .

It is difficult not to notice that the ` bundle of sticks ' is reminiscent of the Roman fasces , the bundle of rods with a protruding axe-head , carried before Roman consuls as a sign of the state authority of Rome , and adopted by Mussolini as a symbol of the movement he led to power in 1922 , whence the word ` fascist ' . Those who died while protecting the Lithuanian parliament from Soviet tanks and the ` black beret ' crack troops were hardly imagining a great role for Lithuania in world councils : they just wanted their country to run its own affairs without foreign domination , which they have now achieved . The fact that Estonia and the Ukraine have proposed the issue of their own currencies illustrates how the control of tax and expenditure lie at the heart of independent government . The Ukraine determined in October 1991 to have its own 400,000-strong army .

A late archaic bronze athlete is kept at Selinunte ; the architectural sculptures are at Palermo , and there one may study the development from a plump and smiling archaic to a gracious early classical . The draperies are delicate , the faces begin to show expression , as in the Marriage of Zeus and Hera , or the Amazon falling before Herakles , with a look of despair that sets one wondering if it is really there , or if one is imagining it . It is really there ; the parted lips ( as in some of the struggling Lapiths at Olympia ) , still with a trace of their original colour , actually show the teeth , though this detail would have been invisible to any viewer who could only see the metope set high on the building . In major sculpture , Selinous seems to have stood alone ; but the coins of Sicily are almost everywhere splendid , and much sought after by collectors .

4.6 A FORMAL STATEMENT OF THE RATIONAL EXPECTATIONS MODEL In this section we present a formal statement of the simplified rational expectations aggregate supply and demand model discussed above . We thereby demonstrate rigorously the results we have obtained more intuitively above , and also illustrate a mathematical technique which is often used in rational expectations models . The mathematics in this section may appear difficult , but in fact is only straightforward algebra . As we have explained above , we are imagining that the economy consists of a large number of geographically separate markets or islands . We shall index these markets or islands by the subscript , where z can be any number between 1 and the number of islands in the economy , N. We begin the model by writing down the supply of output in the th market as where &formula; is the quantity of output supplied in market in period;

Joe took a look at the front page of the paper . There was a headline about the murder in Houndsditch , together with a photograph of the victim . He was wearing a flat cap , a suit and a choker , and there were dock gates in the background . He looked a tough and burly man , and Joe thought he was vaguely familiar . It made him think about last night 's events . No , he was imagining things , he had n't seen the man all that clearly in the fog . ` What 's up ? ' asked Dolly . ` Take a look , ' said Joe , and handed her the paper . The photograph sprang to her eyes and startled her . ` Oh , Lord , ' she breathed . She knew she had seen this man not just in the fog , but in the Rockingham public house . She had seen him hand a letter to the man with a black beard .

Although quite young she was rather abrupt in her manner . ` Yes ? ' she asked . She can see right through me , he thought . Even the bloody maid can see through me . All this damn preparation for nothing . ` I wish to see Mrs Wilson , ' he said calmly . ` I 'm expected . ' ` I see . What name , sir ? ' The ` sir ' was just a little too grudging . Or was it ? Perhaps he was imagining the whole thing . Maybe she treated everyone like this . ` Albert McKillop , ' he said . He was admitted to the most lavishly decorated and furnished room he had ever been in . At first he was shocked into admiration but as he waited he looked more carefully at the dark wood of the large , ugly pieces of furniture , the thick embossing on the pale yellow wallpaper and the heaviness of the dark brown velvet curtains . He began to find the room too oppressive .

All this too Ludens was aware of , anxiously , as an aspect of his , Ludens 's , presence , and of a frustrated desire to communicate with him . Ludens himself had never felt more alert , more finely tuned . Perhaps in their very silences Marcus had been preparing him , feeding him somehow with his thoughts , with the quality of his deepest reflections . Or am I just imagining all this , Ludens sometimes wondered . When he wondered this he felt a deep sadness . Ludens was by now , in an ordinary sense , more used to being with Marcus , less afraid of ` saying the wrong thing ' , and had resolved today to ask a crude question which had been troubling him for some time . He said , ` Marcus , do you mind if I ask , what really happened about Patrick , I mean , how do you yourself think about it ? '

We leave Fionnphort and no-one looks back . The island looms larger until we sight its famous landmark , the Abbey -- grey , formidable , not at all picturesque . We disembark , walking down the rusting ramp over white cockleshell sand and water so clear it could have come from a tap . We are hushed , reverent ; even the children are subdued . I register at once that this place is different somehow then I tell myself I am imagining it . The devout and those with a full itinerary hurry off to the Abbey as the bell tolls for communion . Instead , we amble uphill , over rocks covered thinly with turf and heather , along ancient car-less roads , through the bedraggled ruins of a nunnery . The grass is long and wet , yellow irises huddle at the foot of a grey Celtic cross . I gaze up at the cross and listen . There is nothing to hear , not even a bird . I am bathed in silence and tranquillity .

" Normally he ignores me . But today he has looked at me two or three times in a certain way .

" I think the American woman has upset him in some way , " she continued in a quiet voice . He never talks to her at the table -- but she stares at him strangely sometimes . " You 're probably imagining it , " he said quickly . " I 'm sure there 's nothing to worry about . " From the corner of his eye Loc noticed Flavia Sherman rise from the table and begin sauntering back towards her hut . Although she walked slowly , he saw there was a noticeable agitation in her manner ; she tossed her head frequently , as if finding the heat oppressive , and ran her fingers repeatedly through her long black hair .

When the guns exploded from the Rebecca 's beam , three of the boats capsized in the heave of the sea under the impact of the cannonballs ; in spite of their horror of the lightless waves , some of these warriors swam on , thinking to scale the vessel . Others struck back for the beach .
