by J.P. Lewis, The Blueprint Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Blueprint books, In this collection, J.P. Lewis and Joanna Everitt bring together a group of up-and coming-political scientists as well as senior scholars to explore the recent history of the Conservative Party of Canada, covering the pre-merger period (1993-2003) and both the minority and majority governments under Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The contributors provide nuanced accounts about the experience of conservatives in Canada which reflect the contemporary evolution of Canadian politics in both policy and practice. They challenge the assumption that Harper's government was built upon traditional "toryism" and reveal the extent to which the agenda of the CPC was shaped by its roots to the Reform and Canadian Alliance Parties. Organized thematically, the volume delves into such topics as interest advocacy, ethno-cultural minorities, gender, the media, foreign policy, and more. The Blueprint showcases the renewed vigour in political studies in Canada while revealing the contradictory story of the modern Conservative Party.

LEEC is a joint venture, established in 1988, by the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) and the department of Economics of University College London (UCL). Popularly known as The Pearce Report, this book is a report prepared for the Department of the Environment. It demonstrates the ways in which elements in our environment at present under threat from many forms of pollution can be costed. The book goes on to show ways in which governments are able, as a consequence of this analysis, to construct systems of taxation which would both reduce pollution by making it too costly and generate revenue for cleaning up much of the damage. The book ends with a series of skeleton programmes for progress.

That's what everyone thinks of me. When a new business deal presents itself, my father jumps at the chance to win the bid, and I'm thrown into an unexpected competition with one of my co-workers. From the start, something felt off about the arrangement, and I know exactly why when I come face-to-face with my past. Growing up, Chris was my constant, the main piece to my puzzle. With him, I felt safe, adored, and loved. He was my best friend, and I let him go. Now he's back, with more than just a business deal in mind. He expects me to pick up where we left off, but I don't know if I can because that would lead to me telling him that I'm in love with my best friend. Christoph I've learned a lot over the years, the most important being, there is no substitute great enough for me to forget Logan. Best friends - Always, even when we were apart. Lovers - Never, but when I was with her, I felt complete. She was my apple, ripe, shiny, forbidden, but I wanted her. That was four years ago, and the only thing that's changed is time and distance. The only thing standing between us is her. Will Logan be able to handle the demands of being a high powered architect while evading her feelings for Chris? Or will she crumble under the pressure and fall completely for her best friend? ____________________ The "Girl Power Collection" is a celebration of feminism in an unprecedented manner and will serve as an inspiration for millions of readers across the globe. Over the years, men that have made landmark achievements in different facets of life have often been celebrated with very little stories about bad ass women that have excelled in their respective positions. While there are some works that highlight the fantastic achievements of women in powerful positions, there is no particular project exclusively dedicated to celebrating the "girl power." The compilation contains short stories with the theme of Girl Power in whichever way the author defines it for herself and her readers. The 30+ romance stories are narrated in a diverse yet entertaining and inspiring way and will be released in regular intervals throughout 2020.
by National Research Council, Blueprint For The Future Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Blueprint For The Future books, The scientific work of women is often viewed through a national or regional lens, but given the growing worldwide connectivity of most, if not all, scientific disciplines, there needs to be recognition of how different social, political, and economic mechanisms impact women's participation in the global scientific enterprise. Although these complex sociocultural factors often operate in different ways in various countries and regions, studies within and across nations consistently show inverse correlations between levels in the scientific and technical career hierarchy and the number of women in science: the higher the positions, the fewer the number of women. Understanding these complex patterns requires interdisciplinary and international approaches. In April 2011, a committee overseen by the National Academies' standing Committee on Women in Science, Engineering, and Medicine (CWSEM) convened a workshop entitled, "Blueprint for the Future: Framing the Issues of Women in Science in a Global Context" in Washington, D.C. CWSEM's goals are to coordinate, monitor, and advocate action to increase the participation of women in science, engineering, and medicine. The scope of the workshop was limited to women's participation in three scientific disciplines: chemistry, computer science, mathematics, and statistics. The workshop presentations came from a group of scholars and professionals who have been working for several years on documenting, analyzing, and interpreting the status of women in selected technical fields around the world. Examination of the three disciplines-chemistry, computer science, and mathematics and statistics-can be considered a first foray into collecting and analyzing information that can be replicated in other fields. The complexity of studying science internationally cannot be underestimated, and the presentations demonstrate some of the evidentiary and epistemological challenges that scholars and professionals face in collecting and analyzing data from many different countries and regions. Blueprint for the Future: Framing the Issues of Women in Science in a Global Context summarizes the workshop presentations, which provided an opportunity for dialogue about the issues that the authors have been pursuing in their work to date.
