  Four More Years
John Kerry says that he only needs four years too; he has his own “big plans.” If we could only see that he is the man for the job, he could cure all the ills of the world with four years.
Four years seems to be the magic time frame, but we obviously have not found the right man for the job yet.
Every four years another loser steps up to the plate and tells us that all he needs is four years, and the previous loser claims that he just needs four more years.

 Amazon.com: The First Four Years (Little House): Books: Laura Ingalls Wilder,Garth Williams   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
During their first four years of marriage, Laura and Almanzo Wilder have a child and fight a losing battle in their attempts to succeed at farming on the South Dakota prairie.
Laura first tells Almanzo that she will never marry a farmer because the life is so hard and offers little financial security, so he makes a deal with her: They will try farming for three years and if it doesn't work out, he'll get a job in town.
A lot happens to the Wilders during their first four years including the birth of a daughter, disastrous weather and constant debt, serious illness, and a death in the family.

 USC-MSA Compendium of Muslim Texts
All four were among thc earliest and closest Companions of the Prophet (peace be on him).
After these four, the later Caliphs assumed the manners of kings and emperors and the true spirit of equality of ruler and ruled diminished to a considerable extent in the political life of Muslims.
The first six years were marked by internal peace and tranquility, but during the second half of his caliphate a rebellion arose.

 The First Four Years by Laura Ingalls Wilder
The First Four Years by Laura Ingalls Wilder
The First Four Years is not considered by many to be in the actual series, as it is written in a much different style than the rest of the books.
It highlights those first four years after Laura married Almanzo, which includes the birth of Rose, and many of the hardships that continue to plague the life of Laura as a pioneer.

It is nearly daily journals over four years of a young guy who finds himself subbing in schools for the physically and learning disabled, trying in his own way to reach out to everyone from high school kids with behavioral problems, to severely autistic children.
This book is a collection of stories from four years of Dave’s journals and his zine On Subbing, which documents his life as a substitute teacher in special education classrooms.
When I first gawked at this book I couldn’t fully grasp the concept of it all as I’ve never read anything quite like it in the past, but about a quarter way into it I began to warm to the author and the light in which he showed his students in.

 Screening children in the first four years of life to undergo early treatment for otitis media with effusion
The aim of this review was to assess evidence from randomised controlled trials about the effectiveness, on language and behavioural outcomes, of screening and treating children with clinically important OME in the first four years of their life.
The focus was on the first four years of life because this is the time of most rapid language development.
The identified randomised trials do not show an important benefit from screening of the general population of asymptomatic children in the first four years of life for OME on language development and behaviour.

The first four years under the executive directorship of David Peebles and Dick Bowers, the next fifteen years under the leadership of Marian Chambers and the past six years with its current executive director, Lois Chepenik.
While there have been outstanding board members and officers, none in their limited time of four years on the board or one year in the presidency had the impact of a Marian Chambers during her fifteen years as executive director.
One indicator of the respect JCCI developed during these years could be seen in the leading citizens from all walks of life who chaired studies, served on committees and became board directors.

When punk rock first came to be in the 70s, for the most part it was really just plain old rock & roll in new clothing.
The grinding, shredding sound of hardcore punk that can be heard on "The First Four Years" should come with an advisory for those who have never jumped in the waters that Black Flag swum in; because this music is not for the faint of heart.
In fact, after their first album, Damaged, they stormed off the charts themselves, into some sorta experimental punk yuk, excluding, of course, the wonderful 2xLP, Everything Went Black of these same songs done by a variety of their earlier singers.

 The scandal sheet - Salon
By any objective measure, however, after four years of George W. Bush's presidency, the entire nation should be suffering from utter scandal exhaustion.
If the next four years of Bush and the GOP running the federal government are anything like the previous four, however, potential scandals will lead to few political consequences for the Republicans.
This list is also limited to events of the past four years, or those coming to light in that time.

This is where Fortey began his carrier, and where he made a first mark in the study of extinct organisms from earth's ancient past.
This first chapter is important because it reminds us that our knowledge of earth's history has come in fitful starts in which chance and luck have played a central roll.
I found this particularly interesting because I can recall as a little boy reading how dinosaurs were slow, had two brains (one in the head and one in the tail) and had to live in water to support their weight.

 Biomass and Nutrient Accumulation in a Cottonwood Plantation - The First Four Years
For the first 4 years, height increment of an eastern cottonwood plantation on a clayey soil was greatest in the first growing season; diameter growth was greatest in the second growing season; and annual production of biomass was greatest in the third year.
While removal of nutrients per ton of biomass would be greatest the first year, loss per hectare would be as great or greater in later years, due to higher annual yield.
After year 2, there is little difference in nutrient loss between summer and winter bole removal.

Fortey's descriptions of scruffy field assistants and eccentrically brilliant scientists are easily as interesting as the billions of years of evolution he so imaginatively describes.
The first one was the fact that there is no table to know what time period he is referring to.
The only problem, I believe is that the task of writing the natural history of the first four billion years of life on earth is huge.

 Life: A Natural History of the First Four Billion Years of Life on Earth
The first chapter is a brief autobiographical piece which sets the stage for how Fortey entered his profession.
In recounting what happened in the four thousand million years between the birth of Earth and the appearance of Homo sapiens, Fortey reconstructs nothing less than how—and why—we became who we are.
Fortey is a senior paleontologist at London's Natural History Museum, and from the book's opening scene—an account of his first youthful expedition to the Arctic to hunt for ancient fossils—he interweaves his grand history with deft and revealing vignettes of what it's like to work in the field.

 Amazon.de: The First Four Years (Little House (Original Series Paperback)): English Books: Laura Ingalls Wilder,Garth ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
This theory is questionable, as there is evidence that Laura wrote this journal sometime in the early 30's (called by her "The First Three Years and A Year of Grace").
My daughter was annoyed by the fact that the descriptions of the events before Laura and Almanzo's wedding are not exactly like those in the earlier book, and she quickly picked up on the fact the book doesn't have the richness of description so important to enjoyment of the earlier works, especially for young girls.
Laura and Almanzo had a rough time of it those first four years, but this book does not have the tone of hopefulness and progress that illuminated the earlier works--in fact, Laura reveals a great deal of anger and bitterness that exists, but is veiled, in the Rose-edited stories.

From the 519 reconstructive surgical procedures carried out by this team in East Timor during the first 4 years, 267 were for cleft lip and palate deformity.
Cleft lip and nose repairs were most commonly undertaken, although over the period of the study increasing numbers of cleft palate repairs were evident, reflecting the developing confidence in the service by the local population.

Green's style is extremely easy to read, fun, confidence-inspiring and the book is full of anecdotes and advice from his years of experience both as a father and paediatrician.
