(Re)constructing Gender in a New Voice: A Special Issue of the Journal of Language, Identity, and Education
The articles in this special issue examine the relationship between gender identity and second language learning from a variety of perspectives, all of which share a basic grounding in sociocultural theories of learning and poststructural theories of language. (Re)constructing Gender in a New Voice presents a range of approaches to questions regarding the role of gender identity in a set of distinct local contexts. In this issue, Guest Editor Juliet Langman contends that an examination of the tensions between past and current ways of expressing identity will allow for continued theorizing on the nature of gender identity and its role in multiple language learning and use.

Emergency Management: Concepts and Strategies for Effective Programs
Provides a comprehensive examination of emergency management and offers concepts and strategies for creating effective programs This book looks at the larger context within which emergency management response occurs, and stresses the development of a program to address a wide range of issues. Not limited to traditional emergency response to natural disasters, it addresses a conceptual model capable of integrating multiple disciplines and dealing with unexpected emergencies. Emergency Management: Concepts and Strategies for Effective Programs, Second Edition starts by focusing on the three pillars on which successful emergency management is based: an understanding of history, knowledge of social science research, and technical expertise in emergency management operations. It provides insight as to how emergency management has evolved and suggests reasons why the current method of response planning doesn't work as well as it should. The book then goes on to discuss establishing and administering the emergency management program. It looks at the analysis of risk as the basis for strategy development, and considers both the traditional macro view of hazard identification and analysis as well as the micro view required for continuity planning. Strategy development is examined next, followed by coverage of planning process, techniques and methods. The book finishes with chapters on coordinating response, leading in crisis, and crisis management. Features two new chapters on the development of national response strategy and leadership in a crisis Incorporates the Principles of Emergency Management adopted by many emergency management professional associations and agencies Encourages the development of an enterprise wide program to address a wide range of potential threats Covers the various phases of comprehensive emergency management Integrates academic research with practical experience and case studies Emergency Management: Concepts and Strategies for Effective Programs is an important book that will benefit students, law enforcement, and state and local emergency managers and planners involved in emergency management.

Air Pollution Calculations: Quantifying Pollutant Formation, Transport, Transformation, Fate and Risks
Air Pollution Calculations introduces the equations and formulae that are most important to air pollution, but goes a step further. Most texts lack examples of how these equations and formulae apply to the quantification of real-world scenarios and conditions. The ample example calculations apply to current air quality problems, including emission inventories, risk estimations, biogeochemical cycling assessments, and efficiencies in air pollution control technologies. In addition, the book explains thermodynamics and fluid dynamics in step-by-step and understandable calculations using air quality and multimedia modeling, reliability engineering and engineering economics using practical examples likely to be encountered by scientists, engineers, managers and decision makers. The book touches on the environmental variables, constraints and drivers that can influence pollutant mass, volume and concentrations, which in turn determine toxicity and adverse outcomes caused by air pollution. How the pollutants form, move, partition, transform and find their fate are explained using the entire range of atmospheric phenomena. The control, prevention and mitigation of air pollution are explained based on physical, chemical and biological principles which is crucial to science-based policy and decision-making. Users will find this to be a comprehensive, single resource that will help them understand air pollution, quantify existing data, and help those whose work is impacted by air pollution.

Total Safety and the Productivity Challenge
Adopting a strategic approach to risk management can maximize competitiveness and profitability. Total Safety and Productivity approaches offer managers a set of methods and tools to apply a Total Safety Management (TSM) philosophy to achieve this. The capability to anticipate, assess and plan for risks associated with future operations is a critical success factor, for enterprises of all types and sizes. The ability to risk assess actual operations with an easy to apply, resilient methodology can offer significant benefits in terms of the capacity to improve safety and performance. This book describes approaches that can be used alone or jointly to improve safety management in any organization. The methods are based on academic best practice and have been developed by leading experts, but are presented here in a practical way for application in industry by non-experts. The book outlines a professional approach to risk and safety management, which requires goal setting, planning and the measurement of performance, and encourages a safety management system that is woven holistically into the fabric of an organization so that it becomes part of the culture, the way people do their jobs, and helps ensure that issues are correctly prioritized and managed as they emerge. This book is essential reading for professionals, at both expert and non-expert level, who are interested in applying the TSM philosophy within their organization.

Medicine, Justice and the Bubblegum Factory
This is the story of a son's journey to achieve justice and closure following the death of his father from industrial disease and corporate negligence. As a working class man from Romford, Graham describes his unconventional path to becoming a doctor after a turbulent childhood of maternal illness, a spell in a children's home, fostering with relatives and the final badge of under achievement, 11 plus failure. During his medical training, Graham's father died after developing disseminated cancer. There were strong grounds for suspecting occupational exposure to asbestos as the cause but, to the family's dismay, this diagnosis failed to be recognised at post-mortem. Two of Graham's uncles who had worked alongside his father as boiler coverers before the war suffered a similar fate but were correctly diagnosed with asbestos-induced tumours and their families received appropriate compensation. After a decade spent becoming a cancer and leukaemia specialist, and with the help of a pathologist colleague, the cause of Graham's father's death was re-visited and the correct diagnosis of mesothelioma secondary to asbestos was finally confirmed. A case was eventually brought to the High Court against his former employer, the multinational conglomerate, Turner and Newall, and the claim was successful with the award of substantial damages. This story highlights the corporate deceit and indifference shown by the industry towards the health of their workers and how the press exposure of Graham's family's tragedy helped contribute towards the eventual demise of the company. The lessons regarding the wider social responsibility of corporations and the importance of industrial health and safety regulations are still being learnt today.

Bio-Climatology for Built Environment
Indoor climate is determined by rational lighting, heating, cooling and ventilating systems. For occupants' well-being it should be consistent with how regional outdoor climate works in the flow of radiation via four paths of heat transfer: radiation; convection; conduction; and evaporation. This book starts with the relationship between the human body and its immediate environmental space followed by a brief introduction of passive and active systems for indoor climate conditioning. The nature of light and heat is discussed with a focus on building envelope systems such as walls and windows, and then examined from the viewpoint of thermodynamics and human-biology. Some examples are given to enable a better understanding of luminous and thermal characteristics of our most immediate environment particularly for those professionally involved in environmental planning, designing, and engineering to know about bio-climatic design principle.

Changing Safety's Paradigms
Fueled by more than 40 years in the safety industry and having conducted thousands of interviews with managers and workers worldwide, Ron C. McKinnon confronts the safety industry's most prevalent and dangerous myths head-on in Changing Safety's Paradigms. This book lists the most prominent safety paradigms, or myths seen all over the world and gives advice on how they can be changed for the better. Around the world, the work injury rate is increasing, and more and more people are been killed at work each year. Man-made disasters continue to occur, and all are the result of accidents, or undesired events. One of the reasons why safety is not improving is because it is surrounded by numerous myths. These paradigms hamper the progress of safety in the workplace. Only by identifying and examining these misconceptions can progress in the reduction of accidental losses be made. Numerous case studies and true to life examples in Changing Safety's Paradigms give insight into how safety myths can be changed. No other book has been written about safety's paradigms and how to change them since many others do not want to challenge the status quo or rock the boat. Changing Safety's Paradigms tackles issues in a practical manner and provides advice and guidance that can be applied immediately in the workplace. These recommendations will result in a more focused safety management system and a reduction in the number of accidents.
