This study examines the level of knowledge, attitude and practice of family planning among men. The study revealed that men have relatively considerable knowledge and encouraging positive attitude towards female family planning methods than male family planning methods. Female family planning methods were the most commonly used methods than male family planning methods. The gap between knowledge and practice of male family planning methods was very wide. moreover, future prevalence and practice of male methods seemed to be low. As Men’s educational level and income increases, their participation of using family planning methods also increases. Men having some kind of job practiced male methods higher than those without job. The study implies that higher level of education, access to job opportunities and income play a great role in increasing men’s participation in family planning.
Voluntary organizations, which differ from other organizations in the way they reward and retain members, can easily suffer setbacks from a loss of membership. Poorly managed conflict is often a source of attrition. This study examines the relationship between personality, conflict styles, and membership duration of people who attend or have attended churches (primarily Protestant churches), the most common form of voluntary association in America. Most of the Big 5 personality traits significantly predict conflict styles and/or membership duration. For example, people who are extraverted, agreeable, and conscientious are more likely to use a collaborative conflict style than those who are not. People who are high in both agreeableness and conscientiousness are less likely to quit an organization when conflict arises than those who are medium to low in either of these traits. The relationships between conflict styles and membership duration vary according to gender. For example, men who often use a competitive conflict style are more likely to stay in an organization than are women who tend to use this style.
Salvador Dali is a legend; everything about him is larger than life He is one of the best-known artists in the world, arguably the most eccentric and certainly the most ostentatious He has written more in explanation of his enigmatic work than most other artists, and yet his explanations' are rarely any less obscure than the paintings themselves.
The main section of the work consists of genealogical sketches of some seventy-five early families and their descendants, including a lengthy history of the Edwards family, the descendants of Ambrose Edwards of Cherry Grove. Carter Braxton, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, also lived here, and the kin of Patrick Henry, John Randolph, Lee, Custis, and others peopled her shores. All told, more than 3,000 names are listed in the index.
If you write out "The Poems of Emily Dickinson" and erase some of the letters very neatly and precisely, you can get to The ms of m y kin - the manuscript of my kin, as it were; the manuscript of my family. It might also be said to be the manuscript of my kind. The practice of erasure was most famously accomplished (and perhaps invented) by the British artist Tom Phillips in his book A Humument (an erasure of a Victorian novel titled A Human Document) and later, by the American poet Ronald Johnson, who erased Milton's Paradise Lost into a book called Radi os. In Phillips's books-he did more than one version of A Humument-the artist created paintings over each page of the novel, reserving only certain words that told a different story than did the original work. (A new character, called "Toge," emerged from the word "together," for example.) Johnson, a poet, simply removed the words he did not wish to use as if whiting them out-the remaining words stood in the same relationship to each other as they did in the original poem.

The composite construction was found to be more economical than Reinforced Concrete Construction. The total weight of super structure was found to be very less for Composite Construction than in case of Reinforced Concrete Construction which will result in lighter footing for same number of stories in Composite Structure or in case of equivalent footing as for Reinforced Concrete Construction, more number of storeys can be added. Construction time in case of Composite Structure is very less as compared to construction time of Reinforced Concrete Construction which will result in appreciable saving in labour cost. As the composite structure is lighter than Reinforced Concrete Structure, its natural time period is also lesser than that of Reinforced Concrete Structure, therefore, Composite Structure is less critical in case of seismic loading.
The incredible story of the rise of Charcas, high in the Andes A proud empire within the Spanish empire. Its rule extending from the Pacific to the Atlantic.

Hard work had made Jeremiah rich: at the age of forty-four he was one of the wealthiest mining barons in America. When he married the captivating Camille - less than half his age - he was looking for more than love. He was looking for a woman to found a great family. And for that family he built a mansion: Thurston House. The vast mansion was the finest in the city - a palace for a prince, a princess and their children. In bricks and mortar, turrets and columns, it symbolised the great power of the new dynasty it was to house. Manx generations would live and love and die in Thurston House. Each generation would ask itself whether money alone can buy happiness, a family and love.
The Water-Witch was first published in America in 1830. If less brilliant than The Red Rover the spirit and interests pervading The Water-Witch are very striking; there is an atmosphere of romance infused into the narrative singularly different from the sober coloring of Puritan life in its predecessor, Wish-ton-Wish. It is strikingly picturesque. But on the other hand there is less of high moral tone than was usual with Cooper; it carries a carnival aspect about it; the shell is gay and brilliant, but the kernel is less nourishing than usual.
Work-life balance is usually associated with flexible working, reductions in working time, and practices that cater to the need to juggle both family and employer demands. Work-family conflict is defined as a type of inter-role conflict wherein some responsibilities from the work and family domains are not compatible and have a negative influence on an employee’s work situation. Family-work conflict also is a type of inter-role conflict in which family and work responsibilities are not compatible. Family-work conflict is more likely to exert its negative influences in the home domain, resulting in lower life satisfaction and greater internal conflict within the family unit. This book highlights the Work- family conflict (WFC) and Family Work Conflict (FWC) among the married women, the various coping patterns used by the married women employees, the quality of life of married women employees and the differences based on various socio-demographic factors and quality of life, coping patterns and work family conflict and family work conflict of married women employees.
