Advanced reporting : essential skills for 21st century
journalism / Miles Maguire.-- New York: Routledge, 2015.
xiii, 247p. , 23cm.
ISBN : 9780415824286.
070.43 MAG 145273
Advanced Reporting takes the opposite approach, focusing
on reporting as a process of triangulation based on three
essential activities: analyzing documents, making
observations and conducting interviews. In this readable
book, veteran journalism professor Miles Maguire shows
how the best reporters use these three tools in a way
that allows them to cross-check and authenticate facts,
to reduce or eliminate unsupportable allegations and to
take readers and viewers to a deeper level of insight and

ISBN : 9780415672702.

This book explores the crucial notions that articulate
Heidegger-s concept of authenticity, including death,
anxiety, conscience, guilt, resolution and temporality.
In doing so, they clarify the bearing of Division Two-s
reflections on our understanding of intentionality,
normativity, responsibility, autonomy and selfhood. These
discussions raise important questions about how we may
need to rethink the morals of Division One of Being and
Time, the broader project to which that book was devoted,
the shaping influence of figures such as Aristotle and
Kierkegaard, as well as Heidegger’s relationship with his
contemporaries and successors.

This book explores the social, political, and historical
forces that mediate language ideology and practices in
post-colonial education and how such ideology and
practices influence students° academic achievement. The
author provides empirical evidence that a relationship
exists between language practices and school
under performance. He takes Haiti as the focus of study,
finding that students and teachers experience difficulty
constructing knowledge in a setting in which the language
they speak at home (Creole) differs from the language of
instruction (French).

Over the past decade, software companies have
increasingly monopolized the flow of venture capital,
starving support for scientific research and its
transformative discoveries. New medicines, cheaper and
faster personal computers, and other life-changing
developments all stem from investment in science. In the
past, these funds led to steam engines, light bulbs,
microprocessors, 3D printers, and even the Internet. In
Venture Investing in Science, the venture capitalist
Douglas W. Jamison and the investment author Stephen R.

advancements in physics, computers, chemistry, and

do the same for today-s economy, though, we need to blow
up that box and reassemble the pieces into a network. The

implementers, senior government policymakers and
international development professionals. They write of

ISBN : 9781138774520.

In this ground-breaking new textbook, best-selling author
and experienced gamer, James Paul Gee, sets out a new
theory and method of discourse analysis which applies to
language, the real world, science and video games. Rather
than analysing the language of video games, this book
uses discourse analysis to study games as communicational
forms. Gee argues that language, science, games and
everyday life are deeply related and each is a series of
conversations. Discourse analysis should not be just
about language, but about human interactions with the
world, with games, and with each other, interactions that
make meaning and sustain lives amid risk and complexity.

In 2008 it was believed that HIV/AIDS was without doubt
the worst epidemic to hit humankind since the Black
Death. The first case was identified in 1981, by 2004 it
was estimated that about 40 million people were living
with the disease, and about 20 million had died. Yet the
outlook today is a little brighter. Although HIV/ AIDS
continues to be a pressing public health issue the
epidemic has stabilised globally, and it has become
evident it is not, nor will it be, a global issue. The
worst affected regions are southern and eastern Africa.
Elsewhere, HIV is found in specific, usually,
marginalised populations, for example intravenous drug
users in Russia. Although there still remains no cure for
HIV, there have been unprecedented breakthroughs in
understanding the disease and developing drugs.

Is corporate social responsibility (CSR) a universal
idea? Is the same exact definition of CSR relevant for
any organization, regardless of context? Or would such a
definition need to be adapted to fit different types of
organizations, in different cultures, industries and
sectors? This book discusses how CSR preferably should be
practiced in various generalized contexts.
