Due to the popularity of internet it becomes very easy for people to share their views over social networking websites. Most popular website among them is twitter. Twitter is a widely used social networking website that is used by the numerous people to give their opinion regarding a particular topic or product. So, today it becomes necessary to analyze the tweet of the people. The process to analyze and interpret the tweets is known as sentiment analysis. The main motive of this project is to identify how the tweets on the social networking website are used to identify the opinion of people regarding the particular product or policy. Twitter is a online website that allows the user to post the status of maximum 140 characters. Twitter has over 200 million registered users and 100 million active users . So it comes to be a great source of valuable information. This project aims to develop a better way for sentiment analysis which is nothing a simple way to classify the tweets into positive, negative or neutral. The result of the sentiment analysis can be used by various organizations. Sentiment analysis can be used for forecasting the stock exchange, used to predict the popularity of any product in market, or used to predict the result of elections based on the public views on the social sites. The main motive of project is to develop a better way to accurately classify the unknown tweets according to their content.
The commercial exploitation of Sierra Leonean diamonds began in the early 1930s, in the Kono District in the east of the country. The first discoveries had been made by a British-held concern called Consolidated African Selection Trust, or CAST, in which a British shareholder body, Selection Trust Limited, shared a significant interest with the diamond giant, De Beers. Transparency, of course, was not by any means absolute, but under British colonial oversight, the movement of diamonds out of the country was regulated and royalties channeled reasonably appropriately. In the past, all diamond mining in Sierra Leone had fallen under the control of the Sierra Leone Selection Trust - or SLST - a private investor body with exclusive rights to mine diamonds in Sierra Leone. By the mid-1950s and 1960s, illegal and illicit mining had taken over large areas of production. Figures vary, but by the 1960s, one can assume a figure of upwards of 100,000 illegal miners, both domestic and foreign, were active in the Kono District. Armed groups began to appear, challenging private SLST security, eventually fermenting a situation of anarchy under which regulated and taxed diamond production diminished to a trickle. Naturally, the corruption was at its most pervasive and creative surrounding diamonds. The industry was effectively criminalized, becoming the basis of a patrimonial shadow system geared toward sustaining wealth and power at its center. Distrustful of his own countrymen and tribal opponents, Stevens handed off much of the day-to-day business of diamonds to Lebanese businessmen who had been a somewhat anomalous presence in Sierra Leone since the end of the 19th century. From a peak of over two million carats officially exported in 1970, legitimate diamond exports dropped to 595,000 carats in 1980 and 48,000 carats in 1988. 1. Language: English.

In 2005, during a four-month cycling trip through Africa, Martin Parnell was struck by the power of sport and its ability to bring people together and to bring about change. Five years later, the 55-year-old mining engineer, husband, father and grandfather dedicated a year of his life to run 250 marathons with the aim of raising $250,000 for the charity Right to Play, an international humanitarian organization that reaches out to disadvantaged children around the world. In the end, Martin´s Marathon Quest 250 raised $320,000 for the charity, and he personally visited 60 schools, inspiring thousands of children to get active in order to help the less fortunate at home and abroad. Along with information on technique, gear, nutrition and the challenges facing new and seasoned athletes as they prepare for either regular or ultra-marathons, Martin gives honest and often humorous insight into why an ordinary person would attempt to do something extraordinary, pushing themselves to the limit, both mentally and physically, in pursuit of their goal to make the world a better place. Marathon Quest is an inspiring and engaging listen for anyone interested in running, travel or philanthropy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill Russell.

Australia is in transition. Saying it is easy. The panic kicks in when we are compelled to describe what the future might look like. There is no complacent middle to aim at. We will either catch the next wave of prosperity, or finally succumb to the Great Recession. In this urgent essay, George Megalogenis argues that Australia risks becoming globalisation’s next and most unnecessary victim. The next shock, whenever it comes, will find us with our economic guard down, and a political system that has shredded its authority. Megalogenis outlines the challenge for Malcolm Turnbull and his government. Our tax system is unfair and we have failed to invest in infrastructure and education. Both sides of politics are clinging defensively to an old model because it tells them a reassuring story of Australian success. But that model has been exhausted by capitalism’s extended crisis and the end of the mining boom. Trusting to the market has left us with gridlocked cities, growing inequality and a corporate sector that feels no obligation to pay tax. It is time to redraw the line between market and state. Balancing Act is a passionate look at the politics of change and renewal, and a bold call for active government. It took World War II to provide the energy and focus for the reconstruction that laid the foundation for modern Australia.Will it take another crisis to prompt a new reconstruction? George Megalogenis has thirty years’ experience in the media, including over a decade in the federal parliamentary press gallery. His book The Australian Moment won the 2013 Prime Minister’s Literary Award for non-fiction and the 2012 Walkley Award for non-fiction, and formed the basis for the ABC documentary series Making Australia Great. His most recent book is Australia’s Second Chance and he is also author of Faultlines, The Longest Decade and a previous best-selling Quarterly Essay, Trivial Pursuit: Leaders... 1.

Mark Twain´s lifetime spans America´s era of greatest economic growth. And Twain was an active, even giddy, participant in all the great booms and busts of his time, launching himself into one harebrained get-rich-quick scheme after another. But far from striking it rich, the man who coined the term ´´Gilded Age´´ failed with comical regularity to join the ranks of plutocrats who made this period in America notorious for its wealth and excess. Instead, Twain´s mining firm failed, despite striking real silver. He ended up somehow owing money over his 30,000 acres of inherited land. And his plan to market the mysteriously energizing coca leaves from the Amazon fizzled when no ships would sail to South America. Undaunted, Twain poured his money into the latest newfangled inventions of his time, all of which failed miserably. In Crawford´s hilarious telling, the familiar image of Twain takes on a new and surprising dimension. Twain´s story of financial optimism and perseverance is a kind of cracked-mirror history of American business itself - in its grandest cockeyed manifestations, its most comical lows, and its determined refusal to ever give up. 1.

The Man Who Moiled for Gold draws its title from the Robert W. Service poem: ´´The Cremation of Sam McGee´´. This popular work portrays the lust for gold, the passion for the search, and the elusive success that brought men and women to remote areas without laws or justice. The poem also tells of suffering, loneliness, frustration, and ultimately death. Charley Martin experienced all of these emotions along with love and success while becoming the man who moiled for gold. Charley Martin, in 1912, is found mining the hard rock of Butte, Montana. Years of breathing the fine quartz dust in the pits have given Charley silicosis. Discovery of this incurable condition, by the mine super, brought an abrupt change to the 69-year old miner´s life. Change began with the decision to move to his mountain cabin, which involved a weekend stay with Kathleen, his eldest daughter. Kathleen held a secret hurt and bitterness, causing an estrangement between father and daughter. Delighted by his teenaged grandson´s insistence to know his grandfather´s pioneer adventures Charley recounts events that began 50 years earlier with the Pike´s Peak Gold Rush. Charley realizes that revealing family history might bring to surface Kathleen´s resentments so he continues to tell details past the romantic parts. Successful mining ventures are overshadowed by the murder of Charley´s cousin Joe during a holdup. Kind and happy Charley becomes obsessed with finding the road agent who killed Joe. Other incidents of robbery and murder inflame the Montana/Idaho mining camps into vigilante actions. Charley joins the Bannack Vigilance Committee and participates in the historic hangings of the Sheriff and his deputies. He then travels with the Alder Gulch vigilantes to hang most of the remainder of the Sheriff´s road agent gang, including the man Charley considers to be Joe´s killer. Charley had never before revealed to family that he had been an active vigilante... 1. Language: English. Narrator: David G. Rasmussen.
