CTV reports that Canadians spend about $ 5 billion online a year and that eBay “was visited by nearly 11 million Canadians last August.” (http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/
While those figures are huge and indicative of not only the wild popularity of eBay marketplace but also of the current shopping habits of millions of Canadians, the future of eBay business might not look as bright as it has been for more than a decade now. What has been your eBay experience like and what do you think will happen as a consequence of introducing the new regulations? Do you agree that online income should be taxable at all? Is federal government going to put an end to online shopping activity and bring eBay buyers back to traditional shopping venues?
Has anybody ever written a letter of intent for his/her phd application?
"I profess not to know how women's hearts are wooed and won. To me they have always been matters of riddle and admiration. Some seem to have but one vulnerable point, or door of access; while others have a thousand avenues, and may be captured in a thousand different ways. It is a great triumph of skill to gain the former, but a still greater proof of generalship to maintain possession of the latter, for a man must battle for his fortress at every door and window. He who wins a thousand common hearts is therefore entitled to some renown; but he who keeps undisputed sway over the heart of a coquette, is indeed a hero." Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"
A big hello to all comp.lit. students!
I am interested to pursue my graduate studies in comp.lit. at Toronto University next year.
Originally conducting my study in the English department in Israel, I am completely new to this field and not particularly familiar with the staff.
I will be very grateful if anyone could share his/her experience with me about the department in general: the prones and cons, the admission, career opportunities etc. Every sort of information can be highly valuable to me.
does anybody know, where this Irving's story was first published?
This words come from Washington Irving's famous Sketchbook, which he published first in 1819. And though, America has won its Independence from Britain by the time Irving writes his masterpiece, sentiments of nostalgia toward Europe persistently continued to shape his art. What case does Irving represent to Postcolonial thought and theory?
