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.

In recent decades, considerable European investment has been devoted to the training of language assistants, full-time teaching staff and mentors, while the new figure of the professional “language teacher trainer” (LTT) has emerged. It is becoming increasingly important that future LTTs are not simply more expert teachers, or scholars competent in the various relevant disciplines, but professionals who are aware of their role, who know the development of teacher training in Europe and beyond, and who are able to compare various experiences in different training contexts. This volume is aimed at LTTs who wish to become aware of the main issues, tools and research now available for their daily practice and professional role, and for lecturers who teach prospective language teachers. Language teachers with long experience might also find useful information on how they can develop into LTTs. The book also offers an overview of recent European projects that could be relevant to principals of language departments who are involved in the assessment and performance management of their staff. Finally, the volume contains research suggestions for academic and PhD students who are investigating current issues in language teaching methodology, teacher training, lifelong learning and professional development. Contributors include: Mercè Bernaus, Nick Charge, Jim Cummins, Pierangela Diadori, Michael Kelly, Hanna Komorowska, Laura Muresan, Joe Navarro, Brian North, Mario Pace, Fiorella Perotto and Richard Rossner.

Background Noise follows the development of sound as an artistic medium and illustrates how sound is put to use within modes of composition, installation, and performance. While chronological in its structure, Brandon LaBelle's book is informed by spatial thinking - weaving architecture, environments, and the specifics of location into the work of sound, with the aim of formulating an expansive history and understanding of sound art. At its center the book presupposes an intrinsic relation between sound and its location, galvanizing acoustics, sound phenomena, and the environmental with the tensions inherent in what LaBelle identifies as sound's relational dynamic. For the author, this is embedded within sound's tendency to become public expressed in its ability to travel distances, foster cultural expression, and define spaces while being radically flexible. This second expanded edition includes a new chapter on the non-human and subnatural tendencies in sound art, revisions to the text as well as a new preface by the author. Intersecting material analysis with theoretical frameworks spanning art and architectural theory, performance studies and media theory, Background Noise makes the case that sound and sound art are central to understandings of contemporary culture.
