Aid for Trade in Asia and the Pacific:Promoting Connectivity for Inclusive Development
This audio will help families, teachers, principals, social workers, 12 step sponsors, pastors, and religious deal with conflict, overcome self-deception and promote honesty, integrity, and interdependence. The art of leadership is brought into focus and the capacity of all to share in the power to make things better. A sense of powerlessness, blame, suspicion and backward looking attitudes drains individuals and groups of their capacity to grow. Sr. Riley challenges the listener to a profound self-examination that will aid the individual in learning how to listen to others, be humble truthful, inclusive and forgiving. She stresses the need for mentors in leadership and spiritual guides to build healthy friendships, to be hopeful and a person of vision. With humor, practical suggestions and a great deal of experience she demonstrates healthy ways of leading others and being led. She stresses the need for delegating power and then supporting the one who has received the power to carry out in his or her own unique way any given project. At the same time, she shows the need to be supportive towards those in authority so that they will not become isolated and lose touch with what is going on in the family or organization. Ultimately, a good leader learns how to gather information, administer an organization well and recognize the sacred in the world and the people who are working together for a common goal. This is a powerful and practical program that will be listened to again and again. It is an excellent discussion starter for any family or group that feels fragmented and stuck in unhealthy, debilitating ways of behaving. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sr. Carole Riley, Ph.D..

´´Tendencies´´ brings together for the first time the essays that have made Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick ´´the soft-spoken queen of gay studies´´ (´´Rolling Stone´´). Combining poetry, wit, polemic, and dazzling scholarship with memorial and autobiography, these essays have set new standards of passion and truthfulness for current theoretical writing. The essays range from Diderot, Oscar Wilde, and Henry James to queer kids and twelve-step programs; from ´´Jane Austen and the Masturbating Girl´´ to a performance piece on Divine written with Michael Moon; from political correctness and the poetics of spanking to the experience of breast cancer in a world ravaged and reshaped by AIDS. What unites ´´Tendencies´´ is a vision of a new queer politics and thought that, however demanding and dangerous, can also be intent, inclusive, writerly, physical, and sometimes giddily fun.
Developed over years of classroom use, this textbook provides a clear and accessible approach to real analysis. This modern interpretation is based on the author´s lecture notes and has been meticulously tailored to motivate students and inspire readers to explore the material, and to continue exploring even after they have finished the book. The definitions, theorems, and proofs contained within are presented with mathematical rigor, but conveyed in an accessible manner and with language and motivation meant for students who have not taken a previous course on this subject. The text covers all of the topics essential for an introductory course, including Lebesgue measure, measurable functions, Lebesgue integrals, differentiation, absolute continuity, Banach and Hilbert spaces, and more. Throughout each chapter, challenging exercises are presented, and the end of each section includes additional problems. Such an inclusive approach creates an abundance of opportunities for readers to develop their understanding, and aids instructors as they plan their coursework. Additional resources are available online, including expanded chapters, enrichment exercises, a detailed course outline, and much more. Introduction to Real Analysis is intended for first-year graduate students taking a first course in real analysis, as well as for instructors seeking detailed lecture material with structure and accessibility in mind. Additionally, its content is appropriate for Ph.D. students in any scientific or engineering discipline who have taken a standard upper-level undergraduate real analysis course.
