Jannuzzi, Michele; Smith, Richard
Technological advances have changed not only the constraints and possibilities of individual media, but the interplay between media, and our expectations. Never before have we had the potential to channel and cross-reference such a wealth and diversity of information; and never before have we been posed such difficult questions about how information is structured, delivered, and accessed; about who sees what, where, and for how long. Designers not only have to be successful in designing for this medium and that medium but in making them work in tandem with each other, without tautology or contradiction. A cross-media approach involves media selection, optimisation, and articulation to define effective and efficient strategies for the delivery of information, where each medium is played according to its strengths. In this environment everyone is a prospector: everything is up for grabs. This book illustrates these themes through the working methodology of Jannuzzi Smith, one of Europe's most innovative and influential design studios.

Editor Atherton,Rosalind F.
Commercial Law The International Academy of Estate and Trust Laws (IAETL) meets each May to spend a week of intensive engagement with issues of direct and immediate concern to estate and trusts lawyers. More than merely an assembly of commentators and interpreters, the IAETL is a prestigious body that affects real change in courts, law reform commissions, and governmental agencies. Its membership - including solicitors, barristers, notaires, judges, and scholars, all experts in trusts, estates, and inheritance law, and/or tax law - highlight the contrasts and comparisons between the pertinent laws of civil and common law jurisdictions. This volume records the May 2002 conference in Rome, which featured four distinct areas of discussion and debate: how trusts in the civilian context (specifically Italy) are subjected to taxation; the delicate balance between inter vivos and postmortem taxation; a lively debate on the nature and rationale of the inheritance tax; and how best to serve the client at the same time as meeting one's ethical obligations. As always, this outstanding annual (the fourth in this series published by Kluwer Law International) continues to offer perspectives that open on ideas in themselves, apart from the demands and responsibilities of knowing and applying the law in busy demanding professional and scholarly environments. For this reason especially it is sure to engage the deep interest of researchers, academics, practitioners, law reform bodies, governmental groups and their advisers working in this complex and varied field of law. 222pp.

Many famous Fresno edifices which have long disappeared are revived again, including the El Rancho motel, the Carnegie Library, and the Pine Lake Lodge.

Halper, June (editor); Holland, Nancy J. (editor)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, frequently debilitating neurologic disease that is most often diagnosed at a relatively young age. The disease lasts a lifetime, and involves a wide range of issues, some disease-related and others the result of living and aging with a chronic and sometimes disabling condition. This superb volume is the only definitive text on the comprehensive nursing care of people with MS. As the most direct link to patients and their families, nurses are in the unique position of providing a conduit for physicians and other health care professionals to work with patients, their families, and the community. Nursing care in MS is a collaboration between the patient/family and the nurse, a partnership whose goal is self-awareness and self-responsibility; whose activities involve a great deal of self-care. This book is not simply a nursing text - the lessons that it imparts will be useful in many fields of chronic disease management. The book opens with an overview of multiple sclerosis and its implications for nursing practice; a discussion of theoretical concepts, research, and clinical trials; and an overview of symptom management. This is followed by chapters dealing with specific areas relating to nursing management of the person with MS, including the management of elimination dysfunction, the prevention of complications in severely disabled individuals, psychosocial issues, sexuality and family planning, issues of special relevance to female patients, and interactions with rehabilitation services. Of particular interest are chapters dealing with the nursing implications of disease modifying agents, the role of complementary therapies, patient and family education, client advocacy, and hope as a unifying concept in managing this unpredictable disease. Appendices that include an extensive list of resources and medication sheets for all of the most commonly used agents in the management of multiple sclerosis will be referred to constantly.
