Those very same people, on the other hand, have no ideas that with those selfsame rights also come responsibilities and duties. But, unless people actually do understand that with their rights as citizens, or as it is in the UK, as Subjects of the Britannic Majesty, there come also a real great number of duties and responsibilities, the Big Society idea of Prime Minister David Cameron will never ever really take off.

One university's response to budget cuts

Environmental Economics

Quality over quantity: NCSU’s enrollment grew nearly 20 percent in the decade ending in 2010, but university leaders began throttling back and now plan to increase the number of students more slowly – to about 37,000 by 2020. That’s a rise of about 6 percent from the current enrollment of about 34,800. Most of that growth would come from graduate students and transfers, as the university fine-tunes its enrollment mix to fit long-term goals.

Time to play heartless bastard*, although I'd rather not: Hurricane Irene will most likely prove to be one of the 10 costliest catastrophes in the nation’s history, and analysts said that much of the damage might not be covered by insurance because it was caused not by winds but by flooding, which is excluded from many standard policies. Industry estimates put the cost of the storm at $7 billion to $10 billion, largely because the hurricane pummeled an unusually wide area of the East Coast.
