What motivates someone to become a social entrepreneur? What are the competencies needed to be effective social advocates and agents for change? This book answers these questions in an accessible and practical way, providing comprehensive guidelines, numerous examples, and sources of information and training for anyone who wants to start a community-based social advocacy and change initiative or for employees who want to start a corporate social responsibility initiative.Features include the following:examples of individuals and organizations who have learned from successes and failures in social entrepreneurship self-assessments to help readers evaluate their own talents and proclivity to be social entrepreneurs steps and strategies, competency-building activities, and assessments to evaluate and facilitate initiatives resources available from foundations, government agencies, and other sources for the budding social entrepreneur

Mathematical modelling of physical and chemical systems is used extensively throughout science, engineering, and applied mathematics. To use mathematical models, one needs solutions to the model equations; this generally requires numerical methods. This book presents numerical methods and associated computer code in Matlab for the solution of a spectrum of models expressed as partial differential equations (PDEs). The authors focus on the method of lines (MOL), a well-established procedure for all major classes of PDEs, where the boundary value partial derivatives are approximated algebraically by finite differences. This reduces the PDEs to ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and makes the computer code easy to understand, implement, and modify. Also, the ODEs (via MOL) can be combined with any other ODEs that are part of the model (so that MOL naturally accommodates ODE/PDE models). This book uniquely includes a detailed line-by-line discussion of computer code related to the associated PDE model.
This book is based on various cases whose common factor is how the psychoanalytic setting is created: the internalization and realization inside the patients mind: with the feeling of fixed hours and the transferential relation with the psychoanalyst. Referring to the great masters of psychoanalysis, Rosenfeld guides us step by step through the mysterious terrain of the mind, especially in its most regressive, primitive and psychotic aspects.
The Open Method of Co-Ordination in Action: The European Employment and Social Inclusion Strategies- Second Printing
No development in European integration has aroused greater interest or greater controversy in recent years than the Open Method of Co-ordination (OMC), which has become an increasingly broadly applied instrument of EU governance since its invention as part of the -Lisbon Strategy- in 2000. Yet it is widely agreed that the debates surrounding the OMC suffer from a serious empirical deficit. This book, based on an international research network organised by the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Observatoire social europeen, and the SALTSA Programme, focuses on two highly developed OMC processes, the European Employment and Social Inclusion Strategies, concentrating on their operation and influence at national and subnational levels. It comprises a combination of national and comparative studies, covering eight countries (Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United Kingdom) and four transversal themes (hard and soft law, participation, gender equality, activation). These studies are framed by a historical overview of the OMC s place in the construction of Social Europe, and by a synthetic conclusion, which assesses the available evidence on the OMC in action, and proposes a reflexive reform strategy for realising its theoretical promise as a new mode of EU governance.
Chest physicians use a wide variety of imaging techniques in their pursuit of accurate diagnosis and in the evaluation of treatment. Technical advances in computer science, continuous refinements in computed tomography, positron emission tomography as well as magnetic resonance imaging have profoundly transformed our way of visualising chest diseases. This issue of the European Respiratory Monograph aims to give an overview of developments in imaging and to describe direct clinical applications. Furthermore, diagnostic imaging strategies for a variety of highly prevalent respiratory pathologies such as pulmonary embolism, idiopathic interstitial pneumonias as well as collagen-vascular disorders are discussed. Imaging facilities for screening and staging lung carcinoma are carefully reviewed in different papers. The final goal of this issue of the Monograph is a more comprehensible use of currently available imaging technologies.
Women and Christianity explores the experiences of women and how their daily lives interface with their spirituality and faith. Beginning with a historical overview, the book presents essays grouped under five broad headings: women, family, and environment; socioeconomics, politics, and authority; body, mind, and spirit; sex, power, and vulnerability; and women, world view, and religious practice.These essays focus on multiple aspects of womens experiences and contemporary Christian realities, involving the interrelatedness of faith, thought, and activism across many strata of global society. They wrestle with the daily experiences and challenges women face integrating their lives as women of faith as they are advocates, experience agency, and work for mutuality. It shows how in all these roles, women must negotiate power, injustice, and the impact of sexism as they work within systemic oppression amid a patriarchal system, nevertheless championing change and refusing to be severely compromised.
