[35] The reward accruing from seven things continue to reach the person concerned even if he is in his grave: knowledge he has taught, water he has provided for the public benefit, any well he has dug, any tree he has planted, a mosque he has built, recitations of the Qur�an bequeathed to him, and children who pray for him after his death.

Much overtime and pressures to meet deadlines. Collates, writes up, and analyse ecological data for inclusion in environmental impact assessments and other ecology reports. Here again, however, there was a substantial "Matthew effect" (see Chapter 1): the benefits of the program were highly concentrated among white middle class homeowners, with virtually no benefit for the Asian, Hispanic and African-American minorities living in rental housing in the target area (Skogan, 1990).
