Ask the Grey Sisters: Sault Ste. Marie and the General Hospital, 1898-1998 tells the story of the creation and one-hundred-year history of the Sault Ste. Marie General Hospital. At a time when Canada's healthcare system is at a crossroads and we are asked to make crucial decisions for its future, it is intriguing and enlightening to look at the colourful past of a typical community hospital. Throughout the 1890s, Sault Ste. Marie was a town in search of a hospital. Its glory days at the centre of the fur-trade route were long gone and the Sault was in the process of becoming a modern industrial community. Such a community needed a hospital as a centrepiece to attract investors and as a necessary social institution to care for the hundreds of workers who were flocking to town without family support. The General Hospital was established in 1898 after the town committee charged with developing a hospital had been refused funding by both the federal and provincial governments. In desperation, the committee met with the provincial Inspector of Asylums and Prisons (the only provincial official with hospitals in his mandate). "If you wish a hospital of which the work is serious and lasting," he is reported to have advised them, "ask the Grey Sisters." And so began a fruitful association between the community of Sault Ste. Marie and two orders of Grey Sisters who have operated the hospital through its one-hundred-year history. Based in part on the extensive archival collections of both orders of nuns, this history includes material from the sisters' Chronicles and their personal reminiscences. The result is an intimate and detailed portrait of a community hospital, placed in the context of an emerging provincial system of health care.

To make the best decisions, you need the best information. However, because most issues in game theory are grey, nearly all recent research has been carried out using a simplified method that considers grey systems as white ones. This often results in a forecasting function that is far from satisfactory when applied to many real situations. Grey Game Theory and Its Applications in Economic Decision Making introduces classic game theory into the realm of grey system theory with limited knowledge. The book resolves three theoretical issues: A game equilibrium of grey game A reasonable explanation for the equilibrium of a grey matrix of static nonmatrix game issues based on incomplete information The Centipede Game paradox, which has puzzled theory circles for a long time and greatly enriched and developed the core methods of subgame Nash perfect equilibrium analysis as a result The book establishes a grey matrix game model based on pure and mixed strategies. The author proposes the concepts of grey saddle points, grey mixed strategy solutions, and their corresponding structures and also puts forward the models and methods of risk measurement and evaluation of optimal grey strategies. He raises and solves the problems of grey matrix games. The book includes definitions of the test rules of information distortion experienced during calculation, the design of tokens based on new interval grey numbers, and new arithmetic laws to manipulate grey numbers. These features combine to provide a practical and efficient tool for forecasting real-life economic problems.

This study comprises a colour semantic investigation into the greyness of Old English, forming a companion volume to the author's Blue in Old English (1997). The research is conducted by means of word-studies of graeg, har, hsau, and wylfen, and their context. The investigation makes use of etymology, literary studies, sociolinguistics, zoology, botany and ornithology, giving Anglo-Saxon' subtle use of grey to inspire a sense of the richly varied Anglo-Saxon world of frost, iron, ancient trees, stalking wolves, and hoary-headed saints and warriors.

[This novel] is a story about love and prejudice... [The book is about] Lovel and the heroine Clare. Lovel is a masculine, virile, free, gypsy type with two dogs at his heel. His mother is known as a witch and his brother, Olver, is perceived as simple and close to being the village idiot and yet he speaks truth throughout the story. Lovel is 28 years old and attractive--dark, tall and lean and wears a bright read shirt thoughout the story. He and the village believe his blood is tainted-- his mother and brother are proof of that--and although he would like children he believes he can't pass his bad blood on to further generations. He is clearly the soul-mate of 19 year old gentry woman, Clare. Friends since childhood they are happiest in each others company in the freedom and wilderness of the Wiltshire Downs--their spiritual home. But he rejects her once he hears village gossip about their close friendship. He will marry someone else for duty not for love. Clare is drawn with no definitive edges in relation to Lovel. They are equals despite their very different backgrounds. Class and prejudice mean nothing to them as friends; they never profess love (they don't have to) even when they run away together at the end of the story. --Phillysound2 at Amazon.com.

Anne Bronte's 'Agnes Grey' tells the story of a young woman forced by circumstances to take on the role of governess in an aristocratic Victorian household, and how this stressful and at times humiliating role shapes her youthful character. The book is seen by many as a barely-disguised critique of Victorian morality, especially that society's hypocritical stance on women's enforced domesticity, marriage and the bringing up of children. --Publisher.

A story about the trials and triumphs of a Black chef from Queens, New York, and a White media entrepreneur from Staten Island who built a relationship and a restaurant in the Deep South, hoping to bridge biases and get people talking about race, gender, class, and culture. “Black, White, and The Grey blew me away.”—David Chang In this dual memoir, Mashama Bailey and John O. Morisano take turns telling how they went from tentative business partners to dear friends while turning a dilapidated formerly segregated Greyhound bus station into The Grey, now one of the most celebrated restaurants in the country. Recounting the trying process of building their restaurant business, they examine their most painful and joyous times, revealing how they came to understand their differences, recognize their biases, and continuously challenge themselves and each other to be better. Through it all, Bailey and Morisano display the uncommon vulnerability, humor, and humanity that anchor their relationship, showing how two citizens commit to playing their own small part in advancing equality against a backdrop of racism.
