The notion of ???language death??? is usually associated with one of the ???endangered languages???, i.e. languages that are at risk of falling out of use as their speakers die out or shift to some other language. This paper describes another kind of language death: the situation in which a language remains a powerful identity marker and the mother tongue of a country???s privileged and numerically dominant group with all the features that are treated as constituting ethnicity, and yet ceases to be used as a means of expressing its speakers??? intellectual demands and preserving the community???s cultural traditions. This process may be defined as the ???intellectual death??? of a language. The focal point of the analysis undertaken is the sociolinguistic status of Punjabi in Pakistan. The aim of the paper is to explore the historical...
Loss of a parent is one of the most traumatic events a child can face. If loss of a parent reduces investments in children, it can also have long-lasting implications. This study uses parametric and semi-nonparametric matching techniques to estimate how one human capital investment, school enrollment, is affected by a parent's recent death. We analyze data from 600,000 households from Indonesia's National Socioeconomic Survey (SUSENAS) during 1994-96. We find a parent's recent death has a large effect on a child's enrollment. We also use this shock to test several theories of intra-household allocation and find little differential treatment based on the gender of the child or the deceased parent.
By the last quarter of the nineteenth century some Death Valley Indians had incorporated small scale farming into their subsistence economy. First to report native crop raising was Lieutenant Rogers J. Birnie, Jr., who led a United States Army exploring party into the desert country in 1875.

Administrative regulations and tort law both impose controls on activities that cause mortality risks, but they do so in puzzlingly different ways. Under a relatively new and still-controversial procedure, administrative regulations rely on a fixed value of a statistical life representing the hedonic loss from death. Under much older law, tort law in most states excludes hedonic loss from the calculation of damages, and instead focuses on loss of income, which regulatory policy ignores. Regulatory policy also disregards losses to dependents; tort law usually allows dependents to recover for loss of support. Regulatory policy generally treats the loss of the life of a child as equivalent to the loss of the life of an adult; tort law usually treats the loss of the life of a child as less valuable. Regulatory policy implicitly values fore...

LIVE AFTER DEATH begleitet Iron Maiden, eine der erfolgreichsten und dienstältesten Metalbands der Welt, auf ihrer World-Slavery-Tour 1984/85 zu ihrem gleichzeitig erschienenen fünften Studioalbum Powerslave. Für den Film wurde ein Konzert im März 1985 in der Long Beach Arena in Kalifornien ausgewählt. Hier spielte die Band an vier aufeinander folgenden Abenden vor insgesamt 52.000 Zuschauern. Zwei der Konzerte wurden filmisch dokumentiert, doch statt des eigentlich geplanten Zusammenschnittes wurde ein kompletter Auftritt als Film veröffentlicht.
