Following the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, three women - Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi, and Patrisse Khan-Cullors - came together to form an active response to the systemic racism causing the deaths of so many African-Americans. They simply said: Black Lives Matter; and for that, they were labelled terrorists. In this empowering account of survival, strength and resilience, Patrisse Khan-Cullors and award-winning author and journalist asha bandele recount the personal story that led Patrisse to become a founder of Black Lives Matter, seeking to end the culture that declares Black life expendable. Like the era-defining movement she helped create, this rallying cry demands you do not look away. With foreword by Angela Davis.
Melvyn Bragg's In Our Time series regularly enlightens and entertains substantial audiences on BBC Radio 4. For this book he has selected episodes which reflect the diversity of the radio programmes, and takes us on an amazing tour through the history of ideas, from philosophy, physics and history to religion, literature and biology. We can discover the reasons for the fall of the Byzantine empire, and why women were persecuted as witches in the seventeenth century. What shape is the origin of life? Where does our calendar come from? We can unearth the influence of prime numbers, Socrates and Tectonic plates. Melvyn Bragg orchestrates the ideas of leading academics in each field so that the dynamic and lively discussion from the programmes comes through vividly on the page. IN OUR TIME brings to life the signposts of history, the moments that significantly changed the world as we know it, and the individuals and ideas that made us what we are today.
Each year corporations spend millions of dollars on environmental compliance. However; if viewed strategically and managed properly, companies can see how improved environmental performance can lead to improved financial performance. This book includes the results of the largest field study ever conducted in this area and shows corporate controllers, accountants, and operating managers how to: integrate environmental imports into management decision making including products costing, product pricing, product development, capital investment, and performance evaluation decisions; develop and implement a corporate environmental strategy; and how to improve environmental costing and management using the state of the art and corporate best practices.
From one of the earliest campaigners for women's rights comes a powerful defence of the rights of women. In The Subjection of Women, John Stuart Mill argued passionately for the equality of male and female at a time society separated the genders into separate spheres. He argued that by providing women the same rights as men - in education, politics, and society as a whole - it would provide benefits to society as a whole.
The exciting field of visual studies is fast becoming part of many university and design school curricula. This introduction contains inspiring local and international photos and examples to help visual studies and media studies students understand and interpret their world in a meaningful way. Looking at Media will assist students to gain a basic intellectual understanding of visual culture and visual studies, while learning how these academic fields can be used critically to deconstruct visual texts produced by the South African and international media industry. The focus of the book is to provide students with different methods to analyse visual images. Students are guided to look at media artefacts through different lenses, encompassing the most important theories and concepts of Western thought. Theories are explained in an accessible manner that even first time scholars will understand. To make the theories more applicable, many of the case studies and examples used are from the African continent. The young and dynamic author team shows that being a visual studies scholar means not simply to understand how visual media work, but how the world works through the visual media.
This book is designed for English First Additional language student teachers and in-service teachers. It addresses EFAL teaching in both urban and rural contexts. Practical examples with case studies are used to portray issues that reflect the everyday challenges teachers meet in mediating learning and making sure that learners use English proficiently. Issues deemed important for facilitating English as First Additional Language are covered, such as the importance of mother tongue in learning a second language, theories of second language development and acquisition and methodologies for teaching First Additional Language. Student teachers and practicing teachers can explore examples of trialled approaches on how to introduce English to contexts where the teacher is the only source of the language, as the learners don’t encounter the language in their daily lives.
In the ever changing information environment of the early 21st century, citizens and journalists alike are eagerly adapting to new technologies. India is no different. The country's communication revolution, in the post-liberalization era, had led to one of the largest media markets in the world. Given the breadth and scope of India's media, there is little meaningful literature available about journalism practices. This book brings together contribution from 21 Indian and global scholars and journalists to write informatively and critically about Indian journalism today. The contributors in this volume focus on the changes in journalism practices within the context of India's long journalism history, socio-economic conditions of the Indian state, and minority politics. The volume is divided into four different sections, each addressing one relevant aspect: history and evolving changes, social media, e-journalism, marginalization, pedagogy, ethics, and public sphere. Underlying the chapters is a focus on how to address and analyze the enormity and precipitous changes taking place in Indian journalism, media technology, and global relations.
"The Starry Night, a painting by Vincent Van Gogh, is the most famous painting for which the subject is the background: the night sky. In this book, Leslie Dikeni, just like Van Gogh, brings to life the voices of the destitute and the silent found in communities around the Kruger National Park as they offer contrasting narratives of their experience with the Park to those of the bureaucracy of the Park and those who have benefited from the flora and fauna of the Kruger National Park." --Dr Lufuno Marwala
