Voices of Labor: Creativity, Craft, and Conflict in Global Hollywood

by Michael Curtin

Motion pictures are made, not mass produced, requiring a remarkable collection of skills, self-discipline, and sociality—all of which are sources of enormous pride among Hollywood’s craft and creative workers. The interviews collected here showcase the ingenuity, enthusiasm, and aesthetic pleasures that attract people to careers in the film and television industries. They also reflect critically on changes in the workplace brought about by corporate conglomeration and globalization. Rather than offer publicity-friendly anecdotes by marquee celebrities, Voices of Labor presents off-screen observations about the everyday realities of Global Hollywood. Ranging across job categories—from showrunner to make-up artist to location manager—this collection features voices of labor from Los ...

Women’s Employment Rights Guide

by United States Department of Labor and Women's Bureau

The growing share of women in the workforce has necessitated changes in many of the employment laws that provide workers with certain rights and protections. These laws can often be difficult to understand. In an evolving labor force, it is important for all working women to have and understand the information they need to gain equal and fair access to employment and job advancement opportunities. The Women’s Employment Rights Guide presents the major federal laws impacting women who are seeking employment, currently working, facing unemployment, or preparing for retirement. The Guide explains the rights and protections of federal laws, while also offering general information on state and local laws that may apply. In some cases, private sector workers have employment rights that are on...

Human Rights in Business: Removal of Barriers to Access to Justice in the European Union

by Juan José Álvarez Rubio and Katerina Yiannibas

The capacity to abuse, or in general affect the enjoyment of human, labour and environmental rights has risen with the increased social and economic power that multinational companies wield in the global economy. At the same time, it appears that it is difficult to regulate the activities of multinational companies in such a way that they conform to international human, labour and environmental rights standards. This has partially to do with the organization of companies into groups of separate legal persons, incorporated in different states, as well as with the complexity of the corporate supply chain. Absent a business and human rights treaty, a more coherent legal and policy approach is required.Faced with the challenge of how to effectively access the right to remedy in the European Un...

Aphasia

by Sics Editore

Aphasia is a disorder affecting the processing, formulation and comprehension of spoken and written language resulting from a disease or trauma. Most commonly aphasia occurs secondary to cerebral infarction involving the left cerebral hemisphere. Cerebral haemorrhage of this region will likewise cause aphasia. Speech disorders of some kind occur in over half of patients with acute cerebrovascular disease. Sudden deterioration in the ability to speak is one of the warning signs of disturbed cerebral circulation. The character of aphasia is linked to the location and extent of the cerebral lesion. Aphasia may be accompanied by disturbances of other higher brain functions, including: articulation through the speech organs (dysarthria) memory functions (amnesia) perception (agnosia) voluntary ...

Investigating the Body in the Victorian Asylum: Doctors, Patients, and Practices (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Jennifer Wallis

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book explores how the body was investigated in the late nineteenth-century asylum in Britain. As more and more Victorian asylum doctors looked to the bodily fabric to reveal the ‘truth’ of mental disease, a whole host of techniques and technologies were brought to bear upon the patient's body. These practices encompassed the clinical and the pathological, from testing the patient's reflexes to dissecting the brain. Investigating the Body in the Victorian Asylum takes a unique approach to the topic, conducting a chapter-by-chapter dissection of the body. It considers how asylum doctors viewed and investigated the skin, muscles, bones, brain, and bodily fluids. The book demonstrates the importance of the body in nineteenth-century ...

Innovative Medicine: Basic Research and Development

by Kazuwa Nakao

This book is devoted to innovative medicine, comprising the proceedings of the Uehara Memorial Foundation Symposium 2014. It remains extremely rare for the findings of basic research to be developed into clinical applications, and it takes a long time for the process to be achieved. The task of advancing the development of basic research into clinical reality lies with translational science, yet the field seems to struggle to find a way to move forward. To create innovative medical technology, many steps need to be taken: development and analysis of optimal animal models of human diseases, elucidation of genomic and epidemiological data, and establishment of “proof of concept”. There is also considerable demand for progress in drug research, new surgical procedures, and new clinical de...

Depression, Drugs and Somatic Diseases

Depression is a common disorder related to other psychiatric and somatic diseases, and it often complicates the diagnosis and treatment. According to various studies 20–60% of patients with general medical conditions have symptoms of depression and 15–45% fulfil the criteria of a mood disorder.

Ranaviruses: Lethal Pathogens of Ectothermic Vertebrates

by Matthew J. Gray and V. Gregory Chinchar

This is the first book on ranaviruses. Ranaviruses are double-stranded DNA viruses that cause hemorrhagic disease in amphibians, reptiles, and fish. They have caused mass die-offs of ectothermic vertebrates in wild and captive populations around the globe. There is evidence that this pathogen is emerging and responsible for population declines in certain locations. Considering that amphibians and freshwater turtles are suitable hosts and the most imperiled vertebrate taxa in the world, ranaviruses can have significant impacts on biodiversity and ecosystem function. Additionally, many fish that are raised in aquaculture facilities and traded internationally are suitable hosts; thus, the potential economic impact of ranaviruses is significant. Ranaviruses also serve as a model for replicatio...
