Being born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in the 1950s was interesting because Nicole’s life would span many cultural, political, economic, social, and certainly personal situations. This book has been written after many years of self-reflection in an attempt to provide her story of the experiences and struggles of a girl growing up within a nuclear family, which caused self-exploration and personal definition. Certainly the strong family values of her middle-class family—the country club lessons in tennis and swimming, horseback riding lessons, and babysitting—created a dream for Nicole. The dream was to graduate from college, marry a rich man, and live on a horse farm with a pool and a few children. Yes, that was a dream! Nicole was not aware of life’s ages and stages! Attending a Grateful Dead concert in 1971 under the influence of drugs with a girlfriend from the dorm changed Nicole’s life forever! A motorcycle accident a few years later caused a near-death experience and ten days in an out-of-body experience, which confirmed that a change in her identity was occurring. Nicole moved numerous times during the seventies—Eugene, Oregon; East Lansing, Michigan; Boston, Massachusetts; Houston, Texas; Manchester, New Hampshire. She has earned a bachelor’s degree, a master’s degree, and finally thought she was getting closer to her dream (minus the horse farm). But sexual identity was still unsettled, thus ages and stages continued. Only now after the Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage does Nicole finally feel comfortable to share her story.

Malignant lymphomas remain a fascinating research topic for clinicians as well as basic scientists. Rapidly increasing technical sophistication, ex panded knowledge and broader implications of new findings underline the need for a forum to integrate the latest developments in the multiple areas involved in the challenging study of lymphoid malignancies. This volume includes contributions of renowned experts and is based on a selection of papers presented at the Second International Conference on Malignant Lymphomas that was held in Lugano, Switzerland, in June 1984. Updated information is provided on various experimental fields including cell biolo gy, immunology, genetics and cell biochemistry. Particular attention has been given to special clinical entities such as the lymphomas associated with the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. Recent advances in the treat of Hodgkin's disease, ncin-Hodgkin's lymphomas and childhood lym ment phomas are highlighted with emphasis on growing experience with new therapeutic approaches including monoclonal antibodies and bone marrow transplantation. The contents of the volume reflect and translate numerous avenues of exploration. While there might be some unavoidable overlap, most appear essentially complementary. The intent of the Program Committee of the Second International Conference on Malignant Lymphomas was to promote further interactions between all those who are devoting major efforts to elucidate the nature of these diseases or their optimal therapy. This volume will hopefully amplify this objective. The Editors wish to thank the contributors for delivering the manuscripts on schedule.

Delivering The Free Entitlement To Education For Three And Four Year Olds

The national take-up rate for three and four-year-olds in early education has been sustained at 95 per cent since 2008, despite an eight per cent increase in eligible children. There are however, wide variations in take-up between local authorities. Take-up for children from the most disadvantaged families is lower than overall take-up, and access to high quality provision varies depending on where children live. The percentage of good or outstanding provision across local authorities in March 2011 ranged from 64 per cent to 97 per cent. Areas of highest deprivation are less likely to have high quality provision. Children's level of development at age five has improved, but National Key Stage One results at age seven show almost no improvement since 2007. Although the relationship between the entitlement and Key Stage One results is not straightforward, the Department intended the entitlement to have lasting effects on child development throughout primary school and beyond. It is not yet clear, however, that the entitlement is leading to longer-term educational benefits, and the Department does not yet have robust measures to demonstrate whether the longer-term benefits it expects are being realised. The Department also lacks a robust analysis of the relationship between performance and funding levels. The NAO's analysis found that local authorities which fund providers of the free entitlement at a higher rate were not necessarily those with high-quality provision. There are also limitations in the information available to help parents choose where and how their children use the entitlement.

The Free Entitlement To Education For Three And Four Year Olds

The Department for Education provides funding for local authorities to pay for three and four year olds to receive their entitlement to 15 hours of free education each week. The Department devolves delivery to local authorities and providers but it is responsible for the overall value for money from the system. In 2011-12 the Department's estimated funding for the entitlement of £1.9 billion provided over 800,000 three and four year olds with access to free education; an estimated annual allocation of approximately £2,300 per child. While the Department and local authorities have focused on ensuring places for children are available, there has been less attention on how value for money can be secured and improved. While there is evidence of educational improvement at age five, the evidence that this is sustained is questionable. The Department needs to do more to understand how educational benefits can be lasting. There is not enough good information for parents to make informed choices and there is concern at reports that some families are still not receiving the entitlement free of charge. It is important that all parents know what the entitlement is and that it should be provided completely free. Early years education has the greatest benefit for children from disadvantaged backgrounds however these children have the lowest levels of take-up and deprived areas have the lowest levels of high quality services. The Department needs to identify and share good practice from those local authorities which are having the most success.

INTRODUCTION The Age of Reason Why I decided to write this book: It is with anticipation that someone will read this and will find some kind of comfort in knowing that not everything you do in your life is under your control that those uncontrollable situations in your life will dictate the direction your life will take. Writing my life for the public to read is validating my life and my innocence. The age of reason (Canon law): an age at which a person is considered capable of making reasoned judgments. In the Roman Catholic Church, the age of reason, also called the age of discretion, is the age at which children become capable of moral responsibility. On the completion of the seventh year, a minor is presumed to have the use of reason, but mental retardation or insanity could prevent some individuals from ever reaching it. Children under the age of reason and the mentally handicapped are sometimes called "innocents" because of their inability to commit sins: even if their actions are objectively sinful, they sometimes lack capacity for subjective guilt.

In the joint American College of Cardiology /American Heart Association classification system, Stage B heart failure refers to patients with structural heart disease but no symptoms of heart failure. Preventing progression of heart failure in Stage B patients is a central concern to heart failure specialists, so two issues have been devoted to this topic. Part I focuses on an understanding of structural heart disease and the factors that cause progression from risk of heart failure to development of structural changes.
