Drawing on theories of child development and on research in the processes of learning, this book examines the challenges that children, parents and teachers may face at various stages of a child's development. Children whose development is unusual in any way may experience particular challenges in forming relationships and in making good progress in school. If we are to help children of exceptional ability to develop into confident and well-adjusted young people, we need to understand what lies behind many of the common frustrations and problems some of them may experience. This book looks at ways in which supportive learning environments can be created in which children and young people's abilities can be nurtured and encouraged. Ways in which the school curriculum can be extended and enriched to maintain children's interest and enthusiasm in their learning are also explored. This will be of particular interest to parents, teachers and educational psychologists, to teachers in training, and to other professionals who support the work of families and schools.

This dramatic memoir recounts one woman’s experience with skeletal tuberculosis, which she contracted at the age of five in the 1930s. It recounts her next nine years living in tuberculosis sanatoriums where she underwent many treatments for the disease and was finally released when she was 14. Despite her subsequent disablement, she went on to marry and have three children, work as a micro-biologist, perform as a comedienne, and serve as an advocate for minority groups. By turns deeply affecting and hilarious, this memoir provides a glimpse into a still-dangerous disease and is a testament to the power of human perseverance and hope.

Daily procedures such as scientific experiments and business processes have the potential to create a huge amount of data every day, hour, or even second, and this may lead to a major problem for the future of efficient data search and retrieval as well as secure data storage for the world’s scientists, engineers, doctors, librarians, and business managers. Design, Performance, and Analysis of Innovative Information Retrieval examines a number of emerging technologies that significantly contribute to modern Information Retrieval (IR), as well as fundamental IR theories and concepts that have been adopted into new tools or systems. This reference is essential to researchers, educators, professionals, and students interested in the future of IR.

Soegijapranata found the deepest core of his self-identity: a Javanese man had a close encounter with Christianity, and realized his dream as a priest to be able to serve the nation and his God. This newfound identity became the basic foundation for the journey of life onwards. A close encounter with the culture, thought, and spirituality of the West did not remove his basic identity inherent in his self-identity; it only accentuated its definition. This identity of a man born in a Javanese family and nurtured in a Javanese society and culture was even more sharpened and enriched upon contact with the European culture, Christianity, Western philosophy, theology and spirituality that he was instilling in him. His awareness of self-identity was developed and discovered through his personal transformation from the time before he had a personal encounter with Christianity. After the contact with Christianity, Soegijapranata was even more deeply involved in the new life to grow and evolve as a Javanese Catholic and Jesuit priest at the same time. Through this transformation, his core identity, shaped through his childhood experiences emerging latently and dominantly, had become the core of his personal development in all of its aspects.

A Jewish factory worker is falsely accused of ritually murdering a Christian boy in Russia in 1911, and his trial becomes an international cause célèbre. On March 20, 1911, thirteen-year-old Andrei Yushchinsky was found stabbed to death in a cave on the outskirts of Kiev. Four months later, Russian police arrested Mendel Beilis, a thirty-seven-year-old father of five who worked as a clerk in a brick factory nearby, and charged him not only with Andrei’s murder but also with the Jewish ritual murder of a Christian child. Despite the fact that there was no evidence linking him to the crime, that he had a solid alibi, and that his main accuser was a professional criminal who was herself under suspicion for the murder, Beilis was imprisoned for more than two years before being brought to trial. As a handful of Russian officials and journalists diligently searched for the real killer, the rabid anti-Semites known as the Black Hundreds whipped into a frenzy men and women throughout the Russian Empire who firmly believed that this was only the latest example of centuries of Jewish ritual murder of Christian children—the age-old blood libel. With the full backing of Tsar Nicholas II’s teetering government, the prosecution called an array of “expert witnesses”—pathologists, a theologian, a psychological profiler—whose laughably incompetent testimony horrified liberal Russians and brought to Beilis’s side an array of international supporters who included Thomas Mann, H. G. Wells, Anatole France, Arthur Conan Doyle, the archbishop of Canterbury, and Jane Addams. The jury’s split verdict allowed both sides to claim victory: they agreed with the prosecution’s description of the wounds on the boy’s body—a description that was worded to imply a ritual murder—but they determined that Beilis was not the murderer. After the fall of the Romanovs in 1917, a renewed effort to find Andrei’s killer was not successful; in recent years his grave has become a pilgrimage site for those convinced that the boy was murdered by a Jew so that his blood could be used in making Passover matzo. Visitors today will find it covered with flowers. (With 24 pages of black-and-white illustrations.)
