The main section, containing the music library, other collections, and reference library were located on several floors over Paradise Circus, with the main entrance and lending library in a wing fronting Chamberlain Square.

Two earlier libraries occupied the site before John Madin's library was opened in 1974. It closed on 29 June 2013 and is due for demolition in 2014 as part of the redevelopment of Paradise Circus. Replacing the Central Library is the Library of Birmingham located in Centenary Square which opened on 3 September 2013.

In 2010–11 Central Library was the second most visited library in the country with 1,197,350 visitors.

Black schools originated under legal segregation in the Southern United States after theAmerican Civil War and Reconstruction era, in southern states' public policy to keep races separated and maintain white supremacy. In the United States white opposition to African American success resulted in only the most rudimentary schools for African Americans, as proven byGebhart v. Belton. It often took decades after the South established public schools for systems to offer education at the high school level. Nonetheless, black teachers and students created some outstanding black high schools, including Dunbar High School in Washington, D.C.;Dudley High School in Greensboro, North Carolina, and thePaul Laurence Dunbar Junior and Senior High School in Little Rock, Arkansas.

The Burmese Way to Socialism, also known as the Burmese Road to Socialism) refers to the ideology of the Socialist government in Burma, from 1962 to 1988, when the 1962 coup d'état was led by Ne Win and the military to remove U Nu from power. More specifically, the Burmese Way to Socialism is an economic treatise written in April 1962 by the Revolutionary Council, shortly after the coup, as a blueprint for economic development, reducing foreign influence in Burma, and increasing the role of the military. The Burmese Way to Socialism has largely been described by scholars as being xenophobic,superstitiousand an "abject failure," turning one of the most prosperous countries in Asia into one of the world's poorest. However, it may have served to increase domestic stability and keep Burma from being as entangled in theCold War struggles that affected other Southeast Asian nations.

en:Price controls[edit]

(Net support = 5; Against = 0%)

Price controls are governmental restrictions on the prices that can be charged for goods and services in a market. The intent behind implementing such controls can stem from the desire to maintain affordability of staple foods and goods, to prevent price gouging during shortages, and to slow inflation, or, alternatively, to insure a minimum income for providers of certain goods or a minimum wage. There are two primary forms of price control, a price ceiling, the maximum price that can be charged, and a price floor, the minimum price that can be charged.

Historically, price controls have often been imposed as part of a larger incomes policy package also employing wage controls and other regulatory elements.

Although price controls are often used by governments, economists usually agree that price controls don't accomplish what they are intended to do and are generally to be avoided.

en:Minority rights[edit]

(Net support = 5; Against = 0%)

The term minority rights embodies two separate concepts: first, normal individual rights as applied to members of racial, ethnic, class, religious, linguistic or sexual minorities, and second, collective rights accorded to minority groups. The term may also apply simply to individual rights of anyone who is not part of a majority decision.

Civil rights movements often seek to ensure that individual rights are not denied on the basis of membership in a minority group, such as global women's rights and global LGBT rightsmovements, or the various racial minority rights movements around the world (such as the African-American Civil Rights Movement (1955–1968)).

A naval defence policy of the British Empire that evolved in a series of war plans from 1919 to 1941. It aimed to deter aggression by the Empire of Japan by basing a fleet of theRoyal Navy in the Far East, able to intercept and defeat a Japanese force heading south towards India or Australia. To be effective it required a well-equipped base; Singapore, at the eastern end of the Strait of Malacca, was chosen as the most suitable location in 1919; work continued on a naval base and its defences over the next two decades.

It identifies parallels between the climate change debate and earlier controversies over tobacco smoking, acid rain and the hole in the ozone layer. Oreskes and Conway write that in each case "keeping the controversy alive" by spreading doubt and confusion after a scientific consensus had been reached, was the basic strategy of those opposing action. In particular, they say that Fred Seitz, Fred Singer, and a few other contrarian scientists joined forces with conservative think tanks and private corporations to challenge the scientific consensus on many contemporary issues.

They are often associated with the sun chariot, with warrior-heroes, with fertility (in both mare and stallion manifestations), or with an end-of-time saviour, but other interpretations exist as well. Both truly white horses and the more common grey horses, with completely white hair coats, were identified as "white" by various religious and cultural traditions.

en:Greek economy referendum[edit]

(Net support = 3; Against = 0%)

A referendum to decide whether or not Greece was to accept the conditions under which the European Union (EU), the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the European Central Bank (ECB) would allow a 50% haircut of Greek debt owed to private creditors. However, Prime Minister George Papandreou decided to cancel the referendum on 3 November if the opposition parties vote in favour of the EU deal. The proposed referendum was later canceled.

(Net support = 4; Against = 0%)

Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are low-lying coastal countries that tend to share similar sustainable development challenges, including small but growing populations, limited resources, remoteness, susceptibility to natural disasters, vulnerability to external shocks, excessive dependence on international trade, and fragile environments. Their growth and development is also held back by high communication, energy and transportation costs, irregular international transport volumes, disproportionately expensive public administration and infrastructure due to their small size, and little to no opportunity to create economies of scale.
