5 Barton, William (editor Wilderness, the future: Papers from the Fourth National Wilderness Conference, 1993
Australia Envirobook 1994 0858811251 / 9780858811256 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
292 indexed pages. Includes bibliographical references. Wildemess conservation has not lost its relevance in the 1990s. Indeed, along with the gains of the last decade have come renewed pressures from governments keen to water down hard-won legislation for the benefit of those who see wilderness as an exploitable resource. And the Mabo judgement has introduced a new dimen-ion to land tenure which sees conservationists having to come to temis with the traditional rights of indigenous people. This book has evolved from papers delivered in late 1993 at the Fourth National Wildemess Conference, organised by the Colong Foundation For Wildemess. Divided into four parts: Identifying and Reserving Wildemess; Guarding the Future of Wilderness; The Enduring Values of Wilderness and Wilderness Management, over 30 contributors from all around Australia present a wide range of wilderness issues, from threats and protection to legislation, tourism, biodiversity and management plans. Writers have also joined the contemporary debates about fire strategies and mechanised access.

Australia Random House 2006 1741661838 / 9781741661835 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
203 pages. Pete, in his last year of high school, is hit with a giant wave of disillusion about his future. His final year is supposed to be when he has 'made it'. Teachers, parents, advertising campaigns all tell him he's had some of the best years of his life and now he should be ready and amped to launch off into adulthood, and the so-called real world. But when he looks at that world, it all seems like more of the same: one great big empty con. Itchy, antsy, angry - and not really understanding exactly why - he finds himself staging a spontaneous anti-you-name-it protest at a local Prince of Burgers franchise. Which gets him on the news. Which draws the attentions of Sophie, a troubled young woman at his school, who sets up a website in his support. Which - given the instantaneous reach of the Net - starts a chain reaction of copycat protests around the world. All of which can't escape notice of the Prince of Burgers' management team. Soon two of its company psychologists, Lucinda and Marcus, want to interview Pete. Intrigued by his angry energy, and his angle on society, they think he might be made of the stuff that could win him a study scholarship. Has Pete's view of corporate ethics been misguided? Meanwhile, Sophie, his fanclub website manager, has developed an unhealthy obsession with Pete's antics. She is following his every move - and she has her own suspicions about why Lucinda and Marcus are so fascinated by Pete. She thinks she knows the truth - but who can the reader trust?

The Living Dead: Switched Off Zoned Out the Shocking Truth About Office Life, Bolchover, David
12 Bolchover, David The Living Dead: Switched Off Zoned Out the Shocking Truth About Office Life
United Kingdom Capstone Ltd 2005 184112656X / 9781841126562 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
150 indexed pages. Switch on the business news and you will probably be bombarded with yet more workplace experts telling you that everyone nowadays is grossly overworked, madly juggling their work-life balance until they finally keel over and die from the sheer stress of it all. We all know that's right, don't we? The real truth is that there are millions upon millions of people who are actively disengaged from their jobs, who spend months and years sitting in offices doing next to nothing, lost in the cracks of laughably inefficient and abysmally managed large organisations, their talents wasted and long forgotten. The Living Dead unmasks the myth of the workplace for the first time. It tells the truth. Not cloaked in humour, as in Dilbert and The Office, but in plain black and white. The Living Dead will captivate anyone anywhere in the world who has ever worked in a large office environment, or those who have a genuine desire to make people's working lives more productive and enjoyable. Here are some astonishing statistics about office life you probably never knew: 40 per cent of all casual drugs users in the US (people who use drugs just once a month) still choose to do it at work. 19.6 per cent of people who take drugs at work do so at their workstation. One in three mid-week visitors to the theme park Alton Towers has taken the day off work on a dishonest pretext. One in five US workers has had sex with a co-worker during work hours. Full sex, that is. 44 per cent of men and 35 per cent of women have had at least some sexual contact at work. One third of UK young professionals are hungover at least twice a week on working days. Two thirds admitted to having called in sick due to alcohol at least once in the previous month. 70 per cent of Internet porn sites are accessed during the 9 to 5 working day. More than half of the UK's 14.5 million pet owners say they would need between two and five days off work to grieve for a dead pet, while 10 per cent said they would need as much as two weeks. Monday (23 per cent) and Friday (25 per cent) are the days most commonly taken off sick by UK employees. Wednesday is the most rarely taken (8 per cent). UK doctors receive 9 million 'suspicious' or 'questionable' requests each year for sick notes. David Bolchover writes frequently on business and management issues for The Times and The Sunday Times as well as a number of other national newspapers and specialist publications. His first book, The 90-Minute Manager, outlines the lessons which business managers can learn from football managers. Previously, he was employed for several years in a large office. But now he wants to do something with his life.

232 pages including b/w cartoons. Tim Bowden is a larrikin. I want to alert you to the threat posed to this endangered species. There used to be a serious tradition of it at the ABC. Nowadays larrikinism gets pretty short shrift. Yet like Canute, Bowden stands against the tide. I think the secret lies in laughter. Tim Bowden makes me laugh. Out loud. You can't ask for better therapy than that.- Peter Thompson, Radio National Breakfast When Peter Thompson asked Tim Bowden to contribute a whimsical talk to close the breakfast program at the end of each week, Tim asked what he had in mind. "Oh, anything you like," he was told. So Tim's topics range widely, through pet hates like over-loud music in restaurants and pubs, to beach fishing, bad poetry, vexatious letters, demented pigeons, management jargon and communications. (Bowden's grandfather once owned a wooden telephone.)With considerable hilarity, irreverence, a zest for life and talented story-telling zeal, No Tern Unstonedis a wonderfully entertaining collection of Tim Bowden's wry observations of the world around him, past and present. Tim Bowden, AM, is an author, radio and television broadcaster and producer, and oral historian.

Understanding Accounts (Essential Managers), Brookson, Stephen
17 Brookson, Stephen Understanding Accounts (Essential Managers)
U. K. Dorling Kindersley Pub 2001 0751312169 / 9780751312164 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
72 indexed pages including colour illustrations. The titles in the Essential Managers series provide accessible coverage of the key skills needed to succeed in business. They contain hints and tips, checklists, diagrams and photographs. If you find most accounting guides as complex as accounting itself, you'll love this itty-bitty guide, full of practical techniques that show you how to analyze financial statements, interpret financial data, and measure business performance. On every page, clear text and illustrations cover each aspect of accounting principles and practices, while simple checklists enable you to calculate ratios, identify creative accounting, and make sound financial decisions. And throughout, accessible charts and diagrams explore different options for financial planning and forecasting. Granted, if you're looking for specific or in-depth guidance, you may find this book too general in its approach. But if you're looking for a thumbnail guide to the basics, it'll do just fine. It's worth mentioning that the book is also part of reference publisher Dorling-Kindersley's Essential Managers series--20 itty-bitty books on business and career topics ranging from communication, leadership, and decision-making to the management of time, budgets, change, meetings, people, projects, and teams. Combining the For Dummies series' talent for breaking down a lot of information into bite-sized bits and sidebars with Dorling-Kindersley's signature, crisp graphics on a gleaming white backdrop, they don't represent the cutting edge of business thinking and they don't necessarily reflect any unique individual perspective. Instead, it's as though someone collated the best general thinking on these 20 topics and rolled them out into 72 brightly designed and easy-to-read pages, studded along the way with boxed tips, color shots of a multiracial cast of "coworkers" animatedly hashing through the workplace issues of the day, and a self-test of one's skills in the topic at hand on the last few pages of each volume. Again, they're not for anyone looking for in-depth or focused help on any of the subjects they cover, but they're perfect as a quickie general-interest reference... and let's face it, they're so cute, and look so smart in a neat little stack or row, that you'll probably want to buy a whole bunch to give to your entire department or staff.

New Questions for Contemporary Teachers: Taking a Socio-Cultural Approach to Education, Burnett, Bruce; Daphne Meadmore; Gordon Tait
19 Burnett, Bruce; Daphne Meadmore; Gordon Tait New Questions for Contemporary Teachers: Taking a Socio-Cultural Approach to Education
Australia Pearson 2004 1741032261 / 9781741032260 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 8vo 
170 indexed pages including bibliography. There is highlighting in some pages. New Questions for Contemporary Teachers: taking a socio-cultural approach to education is an introductory overview of sociology of education. Typically taught as a compulsory subject in education programs, the book covers the needs of both primary and secondary student teachers. From the same team that authored Understanding Education and Practising Education, this title comprises all new chapters reflecting current sociological and educational perspectives. It is divided into three distinctive sections: How to govern? Do we all get a fair go? and Where Now? * Section 1 examines the mechanisms of governance and rejects the simplistic "domination and coercion" model of the exercise of power. Each chapter within the section explores the ways in which social management occurs through careful and targeted regulation. * Section 2 investigates the questions about how society distributes wealth and access without lapsing into reductionism. It focuses on how notions such as "cultural capital" and "habitus" shape educational outcomes. * Section 3 examines the issues relevant to the future of education such as the advances in technology, the role the government plays in implementing school-based management practices and ways in which schools can become more globalised and become far more multi-national, multi-faith and multi-cultural geographic communities. Table of Contents: 1. Why ask new questions? Gordon Tait Part 1 - How do we govern? 2. What is the relationship between social governance and schooling? Gordon Tait 3. The rise and rise of testing: how does this shape identity? Daphne Meadmore 4. What do we mean by "risky kids"? Jill Brannock 5. What is the significance of literacy?
