Engage and Activate: Navigating College and Beyond introduces readers to the cultural and social tools they will need to be successful in higher education while identifying opportunities within academic life to connect with others, effect change, and create communities that are more just, humane, and sustainable. The authors address important issues for beginning students such as cross-cultural appreciation and understanding, self-care, navigating institutional rules, study habits, relationships and consent, mental and physical health, finances, and the environment, all with a focus that situates the contexts in social justice. Throughout, engaging exercises, class activities, and personal accounts encourage the development of transformative thought. Designed to help readers navigate higher education to become successful students and responsible, democratically-minded citizens, Engage and Activate is an ideal book for first-year and college success courses or programs, as well as people who will participate in U.S.-based higher education spaces.

Aria Finger, CEO of the world's largest digital platform focused exclusively on young people and activism, teaches you how to connect with the coveted younger audience who choose to buy from brands that make a positive impact on their employees and the planet. Young people have more buying power than any generation that has come before them, and these young people want to know that the brands they give their money stand for something that they believe in. In fact, in just the first month of the COVID crisis in the US, over 2/3 of young people said that they wanted brands to tell them exactly how they were taking care of their employees, not to mention how they were positively contributing to crisis relief. Harnessing her own expertise, her organization DoSomething's 25+ years of proprietary data, and her interviews with numerous CEOs and CMOs of Fortune 500 companies and unicorn tech start-ups, Aria Finger has developed five rules for engaging, inspiring, and activating young people in the market, workplace, school, and wherever else you're trying to reach them. In The Right Way to Do Good, Aria: Shows how each rule works in real-life situations. Gives readers the tools they need to implement the five rules in their own companies and non-profit organizations. Maps a path for leaders and their organizations to better understand young people, succeed in connecting with them, and converting them into advocates for your brand. By following the five rules outlined in these pages, marketers will have the tools they need to implement successful brand campaigns and avoid the pitfalls many companies have faced when combining activism and marketing.

This book contains a selection of the best papers from WEBIST 2009 (the 5th Int- national Conference on Web Information Systems and Technologies), held in Lisbon, Portugal, in 2009, organized by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Inf- mation, Control and Communication (INSTICC), in collaboration with ACM SIGMIS and co-sponsored by the Workflow Management Coalition (WFMC). The purpose of the WEBIST series of conferences is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in the technological advances and business applications of Web-based information systems. The conference has four main tracks, covering different aspects of Web information systems, including Internet Techn- ogy, Web Interfaces and Applications, Society, e-Communities, e-Business and e-Government. WEBIST 2009 received 203 paper submissions from 47 countries on all con- nents. A double-blind review process was enforced, with the help of more than 150 experts from the International Program Committee; each of them specialized in one of the main conference topic areas. After reviewing, 28 papers were selected to be published and presented as full papers and 44 additional papers, describing work-- progress, published and presented as short papers. Furthermore, 35 papers were p- sented as posters. The full-paper acceptance ratio was 13%, and the total oral paper acceptance ratio was 36%. Therefore, we hope that you find the papers included in this book interesting, and we trust they may represent a helpful reference for all those who need to address any of the research areas mentioned above.

Activating and Inhibitory Immunoglobulin like Receptors

A remarkable spectrum of novel immunoreceptors sharing related immunoglobulin-like domains and signaling potential has been identified in recent years. These receptors have attracted widespread interest because they resemble the TCR, BCR, and FcR complexes in their ability to serve as activating or inhibitory receptors on the cells that bear them. Moreover, they are well positioned to affect both innate and adaptive immunity. The full range of ligands for these new receptor families is still not known, and understanding of their physiological roles is far from complete. This volume is the first attempt to summarize and highlight all known aspects of immunoglobulin-like receptors, providing a topical overview of the roles and characteristic features of the immunoglobulin-like receptors and related molecules in the immune system. Researchers in immunology, molecular biology, cell biology, clinical medicine, and pharmacology will find this book invaluable.

Embracing the Counterintuitive Side of Collaboration Think of your to-do list at work. Chances are the most important tasks require you to work with others—and the success of those endeavors depends on the effectiveness of your collaboration. According to management expert Leigh Thompson, collaboration that is conscious, planned, and focused on generating new ideas builds excitement and produces what she calls a “creative conspiracy.” Teams that conspire to organize themselves, motivate one another, and combine their talents to meet creative challenges are the hallmark of the most successful organizations. In this book, Thompson reveals the keys to the kind of collaboration that allows teams to reach their full creative potential and maximize their results. She also reveals a host of surprising findings; for example: • Left to their own devices, teams are less creative than individuals • Providing “rules” to teams actually increases inventiveness • Striving for quality results in less creativity than striving for quantity • Fluctuating membership enhances a team’s innovation • Most leaders cannot articulate the four basic rules of brainstorming Thompson combines broad-ranging research with real-life examples to offer strategies and practices designed to help teams and their leaders capitalize on what actually works when it comes to creative collaboration. Creative Conspiracy challenges managers to adopt an unconventional approach to leading teams that, done right, will lead to the creative success of every team—and every organization.

Cancer-related bone pain is experienced by patients with primary bone tumours (e.g. myeloma and osteosarcoma), but is more commonly seen in patients with malignant tumours that have metasised to bone. Bone pain is one of the most common and severe forms of pain associated with breast, prostate and lung cancer, yet little is known about the underlying mechanisms responsible. Cancer patients identity bone pain as the most disruptive cancer-related event in terms of their quality of life and daily functioning, and it is also associated with increased incidence of morbidity, depression, and anxiety. This pocketbook will summarize the latest evidence-based and practical information on the management of cancer-related bone pain. It is an invaluable reference for all health care professionals involved in the management of patients with bone pain from various disciplines, including palliative care, anaesthetics, oncology and general practice.

The book is co-authored by a registrar in ophthalmology and a highly experienced consultant ophthalmologist, who teaches on the Royal College of Ophthalmologists' Microsurgical Skills Course. Observing that trainee ophthalmic surgeons are often introduced to phacoemulsification surgery with little previous microsurgical experience, Anderson and Butcher realised the need for a concise, yet comprehensive, text that describes a single safe way to perform this operation. Addressing this gap in the market, this book will assist trainee ophthalmic surgeons to perform uncomplicated, rewarding surgery. The authors provide an unambiguous explanation of surgical steps, complemented by extensive use of high quality colour photographs and diagrams. Descriptions of operative steps are detailed and, importantly, assume no prior knowledge of phacoemulsification surgery. The book is structured logically so that users can quickly find information most relevant to their immediate requirements in theatre.
