This book focuses on integrity throughout the PhD journey and beyond, and is organised around two main themes: (1) integrity in relation to the capabilities developed by doctoral candidates for professional practice; and (2) integrity and coherence at the PhD system level. The working methods of key participants such as PhD candidates, supervisors, university managers, government agencies and politicians are central to achieving integrity goals within PhD programmes. In this context, a number of constructs are developed that inform the practice-based elements of the book in relation to conducting doctoral research, research supervision, academic writing, and research training support systems; in particular, these include our Moral Compass Framework for professional integrity, notions of collective morality, decision-making when faced with ‘wicked’ problems, connected moral capability and our double-helix model of capability development, negotiated sense in contrast with common sense, completion mindsets and contexts, mindfulness, liminality, and mutual catalysis in joint authorship. While the data the book employs stems from practice-led research within the Australian doctoral system, the conclusions drawn are of global relevance. Throughout the book, wherever appropriate, comparisons are made between the Australian context and other contexts, such as the doctoral systems of the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States.

Through analysis of three case study videogames – Left 4 Dead 2, DayZ and Minecraft – and their online player communities, Digital Zombies, Undead Stories develops a framework for understanding how collective gameplay generates experiences of narrative, as well as the narrative dimensions of players' creative activity on social media platforms. Narrative emergence is addressed as a powerful form of player experience in multiplayer games, one which makes individual games' boundaries and meanings fluid and negotiable by players. The phenomenon is also shown to be recursive in nature, shaping individual and collective understandings of videogame texts over time. Digital Zombies, Undead Stories focuses on games featuring zombies as central antagonists. The recurrent figure of the videogame zombie, which mediates between chaos and rule-driven predictability, serves as both metaphor and mascot for narrative emergence. This book argues that in the zombie genre, emergent experiences are at the heart of narrative experiences for players, and more broadly demonstrates the potential for the phenomenon to be understood as a fundamental part of everyday play experiences across genres.

Everyone has had luminous moments — those instances when we experience the beauty and grace of life, whether we’re looking into the eyes of a newborn or watching the sun set over the ocean. But those moments are usually brief and difficult to consciously create. Many of us have been successful in attaining personal and professional goals, but we’re too exhausted to enjoy what we’ve accomplished. Or we might walk around in a fog, feeling vaguely frustrated, resigned, or cynical and asking all the wrong questions about how to make our lives better. In either case, we miss the purpose of being alive: to wake up and fully become ourselves, to allow others to contribute to us and, in turn, to contribute our gifts to the world — fully savoring the journey along the way. This fascinating new book gives us specific methods for bringing luminosity into our lives on a consistent basis, allowing us to view the world with much younger, more vibrant eyes. Mastering Life’s Energies shows us how to use all the energies of our lives — physical vitality, creativity, time, money, enjoyment, and relationship — to realize our goals and dreams and, even more important, live a luminous life, filled with possibility and promise.

Sports, Society, and Technology: Bodies, Practices, and Knowledge Production addresses the complex entanglements of science, technology, and sporting cultures. The collection explores themes around human and non-human actants, knowledge formations and processes, and the materiality and multiplicity of bodies through an engagement with the interdisciplinary fields of Sport Studies and Science and Technology Studies. Representing a range of methodological, theoretical, and disciplinary approaches, contributors interrogate the social, cultural, political, and historical intersections of an ever-expanding techno-scientific sporting landscape – from true bounce and brain trauma to exercise physiology, metrics, and esports, and from feminist technoscience, whey protein, and epigenetics to sickle cell screening and testosterone regulation.

PRICAI 2000, held in Melbourne, Australia, is the sixth Pacific Rim Interna tional Conference on Artificial Intelligence and is the successor to the five earlier PRICAIs held in Nagoya (Japan), Seoul (Korea), Beijing (China), Cairns (Aus tralia) and Singapore in the years 1990, 1992, 1994, 1996 and 1998 respectively. PRICAI is the leading conference in the Pacific Rim region for the presenta tion of research in Artificial Intelligence, including its applications to problems of social and economic importance. The objectives of PRICAI are: To provide a forum for the introduction and discussion of new research results, concepts and technologies; To provide practising engineers with exposure to and an evaluation of evolving research, tools and practices; To provide the research community with exposure to the problems of practical applications of AI; and To encourage the exchange of AI technologies and experience within the Pacific Rim countries. PRICAI 2000 is a memorial event in the sense that it is the last one in the 20"" century. It reflects what researchers in this region believe to be promising for their future AI research activities. In fact, some salient features can be seen in the papers accepted. We have 12 papers on agents, while PRICAI 96 and 98 had no more than two or three. This suggests to us one of the directions in which AI research is going in the next century. It is true that agent research provides us with a wide range of research subjects from basic ones to applications.

The Two-Over One Game Force bidding system is an improvement over the Standard American System that has been in effect and played by bridge players for many years. The advantage of the 2/1 system is that it allows the partnership to know that game is possible with only a single bid. In this book, I have tried to present the fundamental aspects of the bidding structure for playing a pure two-over-one game force system of bidding. While many players claim they play 2/1, this is not the case. They have allowed the bidding structure of Standard American to prevail, like bidding suits up the line or ignoring the Walsh club. In this book, I have tried to change behavior by presenting a series of bids geared toward the 2/1 bidding structure where simply stated means that any auction that starts with an opening one-bid that is followed with a response at the two level of a lower-ranking suit represents a game forcing bidding sequence. Also included in the book are Bergen, Reverse Bergen, and Combined Bergen raises, inverted minor suit raises with crisscross and flip-flop, cue bidding, modified scroll bids, and many more methods In the third edition, the chapter on Slam bidding has been expanded to include asking for aces and kings simultaneously, the Baron 4NT convention, and more. New material on Roman Jump overcalls, the Mc Cabe Adjunct and the Reverse Mc Cabe Adjunct, Bergens Jacoby 2NT bids, Meckwell major suit bids and Meckwell responses to minor suit openings, more on interference over strong notrump, minor suit Stayman, Kokish Relays and several other conventions have been added to this latest edition. Several new bidding systems have been added to this final fifth edition; they include Tartan Weak Two Bids, The Walsh Club Convention, the Principle of Restricted Choice, additional methods for interfering over the strong precision club bid, Variable Roman Keycard Blackwood, Spiral Scan bids, the Swedish 2NT bid, and more on interference over strong notrump bids. Also included is an update of the Minorwood and the Roman Keycard Blackwood Conventions, Two-Way New Minor Forcing with modified Wolff Signoff bids and new bidding sequences using Mini/Weak Notrump. The topic of Offense to Defense Ratio (ODR) is included in this revision as well as expanded bidding sequences when opening and responding to the bid of two playing the 2/1 Game Force System and several new Bridge Rules have been added to chapter 10. You may find Timms Bridge Bits, several duplicate bridge lessons, and a free pdf copy of this book on the website www.bridgewebs.com/ocala.

This is the first joint working conference between the IFIP Working Groups 11. 1 and 11. 5. We hope this joint conference will promote collaboration among researchers who focus on the security management issues and those who are interested in integrity and control of information systems. Indeed, as management at any level may be increasingly held answerable for the reliable and secure operation of the information systems and services in their respective organizations in the same manner as they are for financial aspects of the enterprise, there is an increasing need for ensuring proper standards of integrity and control in information systems in order to ensure that data, software and, ultimately, the business processes are complete, adequate and valid for intended functionality and expectations of the owner (i. e. the user organization). As organizers, we would like to thank the members of the international program committee for their review work during the paper selection process. We would also like to thank the authors of the invited papers, who added valuable contribution to this first joint working conference. Paul Dowland X.

Assists clinicians in managing their time to the greatest advantage and providing professional treatment to all patients simultaneously As inpatient psychiatric facilities face bed shortages and increasingly limited insurance coverage for their programs, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs are growing within the mental health treatment community. This book provides clinicians (including social workers, counselors, therapists, and psychiatric nurses) new to partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient practice settings with a conceptual framework and practical skills for effective and efficient practice. It helps clinicians to develop realistic expectations for treatment in a managed care environment with limited time and funding. Partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatment programs (PHPs/IOPs) can present particularly stressful environments in which clinicians are engaged in multiple treatment processes with groups of diverse patients, all at different points in the treatment process. This book borrows the "ecology of games" concept from political theory to assist clinicians in managing their time to the greatest advantage and providing professional treatment to all patients simultaneously. It describes the key elements of a PHP/IOP, including treatment planning, discharge planning, group therapy, psychoeducation, and safety and confidentiality issues. It then addresses challenges unique to specific patient populations in the program--children, adults, older adults, the chronically mentally ill, the chemical dependent, individuals with co-occurring disorders--and offers strategies for coping with the multitude of issues they present. Key Features: Provides practical strategies for handling a variety of clinical issues in the PHP/IOP setting Covers specific problems and treatment planning goals for varied populations Guides clinicians in developing realistic expectations for treatment in a managed care environment with limited time and funding Includes chapters dedicated to coping with a death in a program, the personality-disordered patient, and conflicts among staff

Shine Brighter provides a clear pathway to help committed people achieve their highest and brightest potential. In an increasingly lonely, chaotic, and darkening world, more people are struggling to find direction in their lives and to achieve greater connection and cohesion in their relationships. As many people see the social and political connections between people deteriorate, they are also discovering that the bonds that hold marriages and families together are weakening too. In the face of these mounting challenges, good people everywhere need an axiom that unites them and a plan of action for achieving the best outcomes for themselves, their families, and their communities. Shine Brighter shares a simple yet essential truth about human beings’ purpose and destiny. Throughout its pages, Fred Dodini, PhD, PAPA explains how the sun, the moon, and the stars provide models to assist individuals in making the most important decision of their lives.

Game Changer By: Erhabor Ighodaro Life is a game and we all are players. Some may be unaware of their role in the game and may in fact be oblivious to the game being played. You are either a player or you are been played. There is no room for spectators in a platform that is made for conquest. The terrain is fierce, brutal and unforgiving. But it is still a game and only those who understand the rules can get in the game, stay in the game and be on top of the game. Game Changer is a body of work that chronicles the major themes in the life of the author, a first generation immigrant and the first Nigerian American to be elected into political office in South Florida. A must read, the book provides an introspection for others to gain access to a catalogue of perspectives, strategies and tactics that allows a perennial underdog to win a record breaking election and successfully compete in ‘the game’ of American politics. Drawing inspirations from scripture, the world of competitive sports and his background as a star athlete, the author skillfully presents strategies and tactics for dealing with some of life’s most pressing challenges. Game Changer is a book about winning in spite of the odds. If you want to win, even when others (friends, family and so-called experts) count you out or attempt to thwart your best efforts, learn the rules of the game and use these proven strategies to transform the game. Be a game changer! In the book: • Get the 7 rules of the game • Know how to exploit your home court advantage • Learn how to get what you want without sacrificing your values • Study the octopus complex and transform any personal handicap into an advantage

In an era when college football coaches frequently command higher salaries than university presidents, many call for reform to restore the balance between amateur athletics and the educational mission of schools. This book traces attempts at college athletics reform from 1855 through the early twenty-first century while analyzing the different roles played by students, faculty, conferences, university presidents, the NCAA, legislatures, and the Supreme Court. Pay for Play: A History of Big-Time College Athletic Reform also tackles critically important questions about eligibility, compensation, recruiting, sponsorship, and rules enforcement. Discussing reasons for reform--to combat corruption, to level the playing field, and to make sports more accessible to minorities and women--Ronald A. Smith candidly explains why attempts at change have often failed. Of interest to historians, athletic reformers, college administrators, NCAA officials, and sports journalists, this thoughtful book considers the difficulty in balancing the principles of amateurism with the need to draw income from sporting events.

Psychotic Disorders: Comprehensive Conceptualization and Treatments emphasizes a dimensional approach to psychosis--one of the most fascinating manifestations of altered brain behavior--that cuts across a broad array of psychiatric diagnoses from schizophrenia to affective psychosis and organic disorders like epilepsy and dementias. Written by an international roster of over seventy leading experts in the field, this volume comprehensively reviews, critiques, and integrates available knowledge on the etiology, mechanisms, and treatments of psychotic disorders, and outlines ways forward in both research and clinical practice towards more objective, mechanistically-based definitions of psychotic disorders. Chapters address topics such as psychosis phenomenology, biomarkers and treatments, the overlaps and interfaces between psychiatric disorders within the psychosis dimension, and novel disease definitions. Furthermore, the volume incorporates findings on potential mechanisms, bridges between various system levels (i.e., genetic, epigenetic, molecular and cellular, brain circuit and function, psychological, social, environmental and cultural) and their interactions, as well as the potential role in causation and/or mediation in psychotic disorders. Finally, the volume outlines a broad array of treatment approaches, from the readily available (e.g., psychopharmacology, various modalities of psychotherapy) to the experimental (e.g., cognitive interventions, neuromodulation). With a concluding section of forward perspectives conjecturing future directions and related challenges, this book aspires to stimulate new knowledge, generate novel frameworks, and carry new directions forward on psychotic disorders.

“Can you teach people to behave ethically?” That’s the question being asked by business leaders and business school administrators across America as our country witnesses a wave of financial scandals. The Seven Layers of Integrity® both answers that question and provides a model that serves as a learning tool and a decision-making mechanism. The authors believe people can be taught to behave ethically – and they start by examining the reason people raise this question in the first place. Common thinking is that by the time people reach adulthood their value systems are already in place – they are either ethical or not ethical. This is classic contemporary American thinking characterized by binary, mutually exclusive options; sound bite analysis; and an easy litmus test for the integrity of degree candidates, job applicants and business people. As with most ideas having these characteristics, it falls apart under even limited scrutiny. The solution to the business ethics problem lies in corporate culture, and the authors speak from their own familiarity, after years of business consulting, with the impact of corporate culture on human behavior. The number of ethical dilemmas available to the human race is without limits. Therefore, it is imperative that we teach people how to think about the decisions they may face. Management and employees need an understanding of how to analyze and resolve the day-to-day ethical questions encountered in a business setting. Standards of behavior do exist and The Seven Layers of Integrity® provides a method for examining those standards. But in addition, business people should have a process to use when encountering new territory, a model that helps to clarify their thinking and a basic understanding of how to recognize and resolve ethical problems in business operations. This book presents that method.

In Out of the Box: Building Robots, Transforming Lives, Andrew Williams tells his story of overcoming life’s odds to build robots and impact the lives of six bright and adventurous African American females. Tracing the steps of his journey, Williams takes us from the Kansas ghetto of his childhood to Osaka, Japan, where he led the first all-female team from Spelman College — the Spelbots, to the stage of the RoboCup Tournament. Driven by his belief that God called him to uplift and encourage African American youth, Dr. Andrew Williams proves that seemingly impossible dreams become possible with God. In this book, he challenges the reader through his own faith story to find and pursue their unique calling, even when it does not seem to make sense.
