The four thoughtful, interesting plays that make up this anthology raise important issues for discussion and debate while also making us laugh. With plays performed on the stage and on radio, plays with few and with multiple roles, readers will learn much about the act and process of theatre. In the Continuum - by Danai Gurira and Nikkole Salter In the Continuum is the story of two young women, one in Harare and the other in South Central Los Angeles, experiencing a kaleidoscopic weekend of darkly comic, life-changing revelation. With the two playwrights/actors playing all the roles, In the Continuum tells the story of parallel denials and self-discovery in a manner that while bordering on tragedy is often very funny. `Neither preachy nor depressing, this play is moving, smart, spirited and powerfully funny!' Isherwood - New York Times Belonging - by Mirirai Moyo Belonging tells the story of how an adventurous young hen Kuku and the hyena Bere discover shared interests and companionship that the rest of their tribe will not countenance. In the process Mirirai Moyo explores identity and choice and shows how friendship can help us to break down stereotypes. 'The most original and inventive play I have read in a long time.'-Shimmer Chinodya Power Failure - by Jide Olugbenga Afolayan Power Failure is a lively comic drama about the potential dangers of indiscriminate power-cuts when a small boy cannot receive the hospital treatment he needs because there is no electricity. Poking fun at the system, Jide Afolayan explores both corruption and resourcefulness as citizens determine to survive in a place where public facilities are inadequate and subject to the vagaries of the powerful. 'Power Failure addresses real problems as well as exploiting the comic potential of its subject matter to the full.'-Catherine Fellows, BBC Drama When I meet my Mother - by Kathleen McCreery This play explores the lives, hopes and fears of a gang of underage street kids living in a Brazilian suburb. Narrated through eight small, but powerful voices, we experience the bonds of friendship and loyalty that develop in a small fringe society constantly under threat, from not only the forces of law and order but from criminals and thugs. Kathleen McCreery's long experience of working with street children in England, Ghana and South Africa, makes this play one that requires us to think about how society can support those that are marginalised. A thought-provoking and vivid play that reveals friendship, invention and an instinct for justice as powerful bonds of survival for street children everywhere. It is also a call for change.'-Fiona Lesley, Co-Director The MAP Consortium

The Continuum Concept

The Continuum Concept introduces the idea that in order to achieve optimal physical, mental and emotional development, human beings - especially babies - require the kind of instinctive nurturing as practiced by our ancient relatives. It is a true ‘back to basics’ approach to parenting. Author Jean Liedloff spent two and-a-half years in the jungle deep in the heart of South America living with indigenous tribes and was astounded at how differently children are raised outside the Western world. She came to the realisation that essential child-rearing techniques such as touch, trust and community have been undermined in modern times, and in this book suggests practical ways to regain our natural well-being, for our children and ourselves.

The Companion explores issues pertaining to modality, universals and abstract objects, naturalism and physicalism, mind, material constitution, endurantism and perdurantism, personal identity, personal identity, free will, and God. Featuring a series of indispensable research tools, including an A to Z index of key terms and concepts, a detailed list of research resources and a fully annotated bibliography, this is the essential reference tool for anyone working in contemporary metaphysics.

The Continuum

A Constructive Approach to Basic Concepts of Real Analysis

In this small text the basic theory of the continuum, including the elements of metric space theory and continuity is developed within the system of intuitionistic mathematics in the sense of L.E.J. Brouwer and H. Weyl. The main features are proofs of the famous theorems of Brouwer concerning the continuity of all functions that are defined on "whole" intervals, the uniform continuity of all functions that are defined on compact intervals, and the uniform convergence of all pointwise converging sequences of functions defined on compact intervals. The constructive approach is interesting both in itself and as a contrast to, for example, the formal axiomatic one.

The brief will describe how to develop a risk analysis applied to a project , through a sequence of steps: risk management planning, risk identification, risk classification, risk assessment, risk quantification, risk response planning, risk monitoring and control, process close out and lessons learning. The project risk analysis and management process will be applied to large engineering projects, in particular related to the oil and gas industry. The brief will address the overall range of possible events affecting the project moving from certainty (project issues) through uncertainty (project risks) to unpredictability (unforeseeable events), considering both negative and positive events. Some quantitative techniques (simulation, event tree, Bayesian inference, etc.) will be used to develop risk quantification. The brief addresses a typical subject in the area of project management, with reference to large engineering projects concerning the realization of large plants and infrastructures. These projects are characterized by a high level of change, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. The brief represents an extension of the material developed for the course Project Risk Analysis and Management of the Master in Strategic Project Management (Erasmus Mundus) developed jointly by Politecnico di Milano, Heriot Watt University (Edimburgh) and Umea (Sweden). The brief may be used both in courses addressing project management subjects and by practitioners as a guide for developing an effective project risk management plan.

The healthcare case management field is exploding. The demand will far outweigh the supply for the next three to five years and beyond. The business savvy case manager will lead the field.
