Candid Street Portraiture: Working in the face of strangers, street portraiture pushes the boundaries of personal spaces and, for that matter, the photographer’s own comfort zone. It's all about candid shooting, getting in close to the subject with the subject unaware of the camera. The portrait can be just the face or whole body & all in between. Framing & composition are important but in a relaxed way. The best of these portraits capture emotions as the story of the subject unfolds before you....
Secondly, seeking out paid work should always be the choice of women themselves.
Policies adopted by conservative government administrations such as workfare, which
force social assistance recipients into the workforce, ìÖcreate a source of low-wage and
free labour by providing subsidies to the private sector and forcing recipients to volunteer
in exchange for assistanceî.
These polices are based on a distrust of those living in
poverty, and do not empower, but malign people into working for pay.
Throughout all the editions of How to Cheat in Photoshop – a book which
will, incidentally, teach you how to use Photoshop – I’ve maintained a website
and reader forum to help readers with their photomontage-related problems.
This has included a regular weekly contest, the Friday Challenge. And I’ve
noticed that one of the major issues facing Photoshop artists is not how to
use the Curves dialog, or the Pen tool, or how to save work for the web. One
of the major stumbling blocks, it turns out, is the design process....
When asked where landscape architects work,
many people might point out their back door to
the garden. It would be more accurate, however,
to look out the front door. The landscape is
anywhere and everywhere outdoors, and
landscape architects are shaping the face of
the Earth across cities, towns and countryside
alike. Landscape architecture involves shaping
and managing the physical world and the natural
systems that we inhabit. Landscape architects
do design gardens, but what is critical is that the
garden, or any other outdoor space, is seen in
My interest in work-related ill-health had more contemporary origins. I have had
an academic and personal interest in women’s health in general for many years
and in the early 1980s I became a member of a small women’s group who were
concerned about the hazards women faced in their work.
The early recognition of mental health problems in general populations has received considerable
attention. One can utilize the results of the numerous published population studies for the early
recognition and identification of psychological distress in pregnant women. Two of the "general
screening instruments" that have been most frequently utilized in the last 20 years are the General
Health Questionnaire (GHQ) (105) and the Self-Reporting Questionnaire (SRQ) (106).
Aggregate saving is an important source of funds for domestic investment and economic
growth and thus the question of what determines its level and rate remains a crucial research and
policy agenda. Moreover, in the face of volatile flows of external finance, domestic saving has
become even more critical for economic development.
By their very nature, every book that seeks to describe how technology
works face challenges during its creation. Dealing with beta software and
attempting to resolve the difference between how the software works and
how the developers say it will work in the final version is a problem faced by
any author, which is one reason why it is often best to wait to finalize text
after you have a chance to work with released software. Looking back at this
project, in some ways, this has been the hardest book of the seven that I
have written about Exchange.
At DrupalCon Barcelona in 2007, while giving my regular “State of Drupal” presentation,
I remarked that during my hour-long session, four new Drupal sites would be
launched. I went on to suggest that three of those four sites would be ugly. A year later,
at DrupalCon Szeged in Hungary, those four new sites per hour had grown to seven
and Drupal 6 had been released, making it easier to create great-looking Web sites.
Still, even now, Drupal faces a common problem on the Web—the relative lack of new,
high quality themes....
Safety was never my primary interest during my studies as a chemical
engineer (although I got sprayed once with concentrated sulfuric acid
during an experiment, making my face look like a moonscape), nor
when I started working in the industry. I found myself very soon in
the normal rut of thinking that safety was the job of the safety professional,
and had nothing to do with us production people.

The curriculum vitae of Alice Turner Schafer lists two specializations: abstract
algebra (group theory) and women in mathematics. As early as her high school
years Alice exhibited a love for mathematics and an interest in teaching as a
career. As a mathematics educator she championed the full participation of
women in mathematics.
This paper focuses on developing an empirical strategy for measuring the effect of pollution on
health. Specifically, I look at the effect of air pollution on children's hospitalization for asthma. Childhood
asthma is of particular interest for two reasons: 1) asthma is the leading chronic condition affecting children;
and 2) current pollution standards are based on adult health responses to pollution and children face a greater
risk from pollution exposure due to the sensitivity of their developing biological systems.
This study builds on earlier work in five ways.
This is an unusual book, combining as it does papers on astrobiology,
history of astronomy and sundials, but—after all—Woody Sullivan is an
unusual man. In late 2003 I spent two fruitful and enjoyable months in the
Astronomy Department at the University of Washington (UW) working on
archival material accumulated over the decades by Woody, for a book we
will co-author with Jessica Chapman on the early development of Australian
The stigma of HIV often exacerbates this
situation because when men die women are
easily blamed for bringing HIV into the
household, no matter if it is true or not. In
Zambia, women working with Huairou
member organization Katuba Women’s
Association reported being chased out of the
home after their husband’s death, as they
were blamed for bringing the disease into the
home, despite the husbands’ known
infidelities that led to the disease.
In November 2004, building upon the recommendations established in the RSSS,
the CPSS and the Technical Committee of IOSCO published the Recommendations for
central counterparties (RCCP). The RCCP provided 15 recommendations that addressed the
major types of risks faced by CCPs. A methodology for assessing a CCP’s observance of
each recommendation was included in the report.
This report takes an in-depth look at the chal-
lenges facing New York City’s middle class. More
than a year in the works, the report draws upon an
extensive economic and demographic analysis, a
historical review, focus groups conducted in every
borough and over 100 individual interviews with ac-
ademics, economists and a wide range of individuals
on the ground in the five boroughs. These include
homeowners, labor leaders, small business own-
ers, real estate brokers and developers, immigrant
advocates, and officials from two dozen community
As individual participants in reproductive health, men face obstacles related to traditional
attitudes and practices and to a lack of information and services. Overcoming social and
cultural obstacles requires more educational efforts, particularly directed to youth and their
parents. Research to support these efforts should identify the specific traditional attitudes
that need to be addressed.
