The immense dislocations and suffering caused by neo-liberal globalization, the retreat of the welfare state in the last decades of the twentieth century, and the heightened military imperialism at the turn of the twenty-first century have raised urgent questions about the temporal and spatial dimensions of power. Through stimulating critical perspectives and new cross-disciplinary frameworks, which reflect recent innovations in the social and human sciences, this series provides a forum for politically engaged and theoretically imaginative responses to these important issues of late modernity.
At long last, a guide to writing online content that shows the reader direct examples rather than endless fluffy guidance.
Web Content - The Beginner's Masterclass offers a practical and demonstrative means toward gaining your own, distinct content authoring style.Written with the intent of leading by example, this book contains a selection of articles which encompass many of the more popular subjects and genres commonly seen in the online news media. Through these demonstrative means, it intends to imbue many of the key aspects of content and copy writing while maintaining a strong weighting toward a high grade of 'shareability' through audience preferential of social media channels. The book revolves around its three pillars:IDENTITY - Crafting a unique, recognizable voice. PURPOSE - Embodying clarity in topic choice.STANDING APART - Being different from the banal crowd. Transforming the benign, day-to-day and week-to-week occurrences into a style at once keynote serves to imbue the budding content writer with an edge over the more conventional competitor. It is through this that the essential spirit of Web Content - The Beginner's Masterclass was assembled. Current and contemporary, this book takes into account the fact that search engines are becoming ever more selective in what they highlight and what they leave. Generic writing, the samey and the dull lose out, while writing and content with genuine spirit, humour and style is promoted. The power of words at once eye-catching and colourful with an intense, instantaneous 'shareability' is precisely what the modern day Internet values and rates. Designed as a unique and quirky compliment to a de facto manual of style, veteran online content author and journalist TIMOTHY JONES brings writing to life for readers keen to enhance, improve and realize their talents. With this handbook, they will confront the field of web and news content creation with genuine eagerness.
Over the last decade we entered a new exploration phase of solar flare physics, equipped with powerful spacecraft such as Yohkoh, SoHO, and TRACE that pro- vide us detail-rich and high-resolution images of solar flares in soft X-rays, hard X -rays, and extreme-ultraviolet wavelengths. Moreover, the large-area and high- sensitivity detectors on the Compton GRO spacecraft recorded an unprecedented number of high-energy photons from solar flares that surpasses all detected high- energy sources taken together from the rest of the universe, for which CGRO was mainly designed to explore. However, morphological descriptions of these beau- tiful pictures and statistical catalogs of these huge archives of solar data would not convey us much understanding of the underlying physics, if we would not set out to quantify physical parameters from these data and would not subject these measurements to theoretical models. Historically, there has always been an unsatisfactory gap between traditional astronomy that dutifully describes the mor- phology of observations, and the newer approach of astrophysics, which starts with physical concepts from first principles and analyzes astronomical data with the goal to confirm or disprove theoretical models. In this review we attempt to bridge this yawning gap and aim to present the recent developments in solar flare high-energy physics from a physical point of view, structuring the observations and analysis results according to physical processes, such as particle acceleration, propagation, energy loss, kinematics, and radiation signatures.
Undoubtedly the most popular book in American labor history, the I.W.W.'sLittle Red Song Book has been a staple item on picket lines and workers' gatherings for generations and has gone through numerous editions. As a result of I.W.W. efforts to keep up with the times, however, recent versions of the songbook have omitted most of the old-time favorites, especially the raucous lyrics of the free-spirited hoboes who made up such a large portion of the union's membership in its heyday. Reprinted here is the 19th edition, originally issued in 1923, the year the I.W.W. reached its peak membership. Of the 52 songs in this book, the overwhelming majority have not been included in the I.W.W.'s own songbooks for many years. Here are such classics as Joe Hill's "John Golden and the Lawrence Strike," "We Will Sing One Song," "Scissor Bill," "The Tramp," and others; T-Bone Slim's "I'm Too Old to Be a Scab," "Mysteries of a Hobo's Life," "I Wanna Free Miss Liberty," and others; Ralph Chaplin's "All Hell Can't Stop Us," "Up from Your Knees," "May Day Song," and more; and other songs by C. G. Allen, Richard Brazier, Pat Brennan, James Connelly, Laura Payne Emerson, and many others.
