This book provides a unique insight into the lived realities of hate crime in Ireland and its treatment within the criminal justice system. The significance of the Irish case is contextualised within the European and global policy contexts and an overview of hate crime in Ireland, both north and south, and its differential treatment in each jurisdictions criminal justice system is offered. Presenting empirically grounded analyses of the experiences of commonly targeted identity groups in an Irish context, this study also draws upon their exposure to hate crime and challenges encountered in seeking redress. Combining theory, research and practice, this book represents legal, social, cultural and political concerns pertinent to understanding, preventing, deterring and combatting hate crime across Ireland. It incorporates a variety of perspectives on the hate crime paradigm and addresses many of the cutting-edge debates arising in the field of hate studies. Contributions from Irish and international academic researchers are complemented by applied pieces authored by practitioners and policy makers actively engaged with affected communities. This is a progressive and informed text which will be of great value to activists, policy makers and scholars of hate crime and criminal justice.

This volume brings together, in a central text, chapters written by leading scholars working at the intersection of modeling, the natural and social sciences, and public participation. This book presents the current state of knowledge regarding the theory and practice of engaging stakeholders in environmental modeling for decision-making, and includes basic theoretical considerations, an overview of methods and tools available, and case study examples of these principles and methods in practice. Although there has been a significant increase in research and development regarding participatory modeling, a unifying text that provides an overview of the different methodologies available to scholars and a systematic review of case study applications has been largely unavailable. This edited volume seeks to address a gap in the literature and provide a primer that addresses the growing demand to adopt and apply a range of modeling methods that includes the public in environmental assessment and management. The book is divided into two main sections. The first part of the book covers basic considerations for including stakeholders in the modeling process and its intersection with the theory and practice of public participation in environmental decision-making. The second part of the book is devoted to specific applications and products of the various methods available through case study examination. This second part of the book also provides insight from several international experts currently working in the field about their approaches, types of interactions with stakeholders, models produced, and the challenges they perceived based on their practical experiences. Steven Gray is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Community Sustainability at Michigan State University. His research focuses on the theory and practice of participatory modeling and developing decision-support software to help communities, resource managers, and other decision-makers to understand the social impacts of environmental change through modeling. Michael Paolisso is a Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Maryland whose research seeks to demonstrate how cultural models of the environment have a direct bearing on the use and management of natural resources, and how cognitive-cultural approaches and collaborative learning improve scientist and public understanding, dialogue, and collaboration in addressing environmental issues. Rebecca Jordan is a Professor in the Department of Human Ecology at Rutgers University. Trained as a behavioral ecologist her scholarly work focusses on public participation in scientific research and the contribution of learning to the sustainability of coupled social-ecological systems. Stefan Gray currently works as an adviser to the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment in Wellington, New Zealand. At the time of the production of this book, Stefan held a Research Fellowship funded by the Irish Environmental Protection Agency, supporting climate change adaptation at central and local government levels in Ireland. His research in Europe focused on issues related to expanding decision-making in environmental management to incorporate complex adaptive systems theory.

This Handbook incorporates a variety of disciplines and approaches in order to provide a comprehensive and authoritative examination of the issues that result from increasing age diversity at work. Despite interest in this area exploding over the past few years amongst academics, practitioners and policy makers, the analysis of age diversity has remained primarily within disciplinary silos such as Psychology or Sociology with a focus on ageing or generational differences, rather than a combination of approaches to understanding age diversity. Unique in its coverage of multiple perspectives, it considers not only generational and ageing perspectives to age diversity, but also highlights the importance of context in driving both the impact and response to this issue. The Palgrave Handbook of Age Diversity and Work includes contributions from leading scholars in age and generational diversity from across the world, discussing cutting-edge research findings about the nature and impact of age diversity and presenting approaches to managing this phenomenon.

From Harlem’s Abyssinian Baptist Church, one of the most esteemed centers of African American spirituality in the country, comes Food for the Soul - a compilation of more than 100 recipes, and the many stories behind them shared by its congregation. Since its founding in 1808, Abyssinian has been a major social and religious voice of black Americans. The oldest African American church in New York State, it is a cultural melting-pot ministry with members from throughout the African diaspora - and a history of cooking reflecting that diversity. Yet beyond the great recipes for dishes such as Bahamian Seafood Cobbler, Soulful Chicken Stir-Fry, Whipping Cream Biscuits, and Mama Georgia’s Sweet Potato Pie lies a rich and textured account of how the church incorporates the creation and enjoyment of food and the care of the physical body into its love for and devotion to God and humankind. Brimming with updated, healthy renditions of favorite old dishes, Food for the Soul is also illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs. Woven through the book are stories associated with the recipes that are full of life - humorous, moving, joyful. From a churchgoer who started making spicy chili in the ‘60s as the South Bronx burned (Chef J’s 5-Alarm South Bronx Chili) to another who still re-creates the one-pot dinner that was the only meat dish her large and poor family could afford each week (Booba’s Saturday Night Special One-Pot Meal), these anecdotes and recipes come from the heart and provide deep sustenance to the body and soul. The Abyssinian Baptist Church is the second-oldest African American church in the United States and will celebrate its 200th anniversary in 2008. Abyssinian has members from Kenya, Jamaica, the United States, Ireland, Brazil, the Cameroon, Uganda, Ghana, the Bahamas, Cuba, Honduras, Panama, England, Egypt, South Africa, Grenada, Trinidad, Holland, Japan, and Nigeria. ungekürzt.

This book covers the technology of switching in systems for electrical power transmission and distribution, from medium to (and including) ultra-high voltage for alternating current (AC). Emphasis is on the electrical aspects, covering the electrical transient phenomena of switching, its background, a generic description of equipment used for switching, various application examples, specification and commissioning of such equipment and testing aspects. The different methods to test high-voltage circuit-breakers are presented for each type of switching condition. In order to be close to the user, the standardized requirement for such equipment is followed as a guideline. This book supplies practical guidance on how to deal with unacceptable switching transientsand gives an explanation to world-wide IEC standards on switching equipment, illustrating current applications. It also incorporates the most recent developments both in technology (e.g. greater use of vacuum breakers, developments in UHV (1000kV) technology) and techniques via their involvement in testing, research & international conferences such as IEC & CIGRE. The authors have experience in giving courses all over the world and have seen first-hand that users of switching equipment want to learn more about the phenomena and technology. After an introduction, the book covers faults in power systems and then fault current making and breaking. The third and fourth chapters discuss load switching SF6 switchgear. Chapter Six presents vacuum switchgear. Special switching situations are looked at next, then application of switchgear, specification and commissioning.
