In The Material, the Real, and the Fractured Self, Susan Harrow explores the fascinating interrelation of subjectivity, materiality, and representation in the poetry and related texts of four modern French writers: Arthur Rimbaud, Guillaume Apollinaire, Francis Ponge, and Jacques Réda. She demonstrates the richness and the relevance of modern French poetry for today's readers, putting contemporary thought to work on the fractured self emerging in the post-Baudelairian lyric. Harrow addresses the widely perceived marginalization of poetry in the writing/theory debate, demonstrating that the emergence of a self at once shaped by and straining against material, historical, subjective, and cultural impediments reveals fertile relations between theory and poetry. Where purer forms of postmodernist thinking have stressed the dissolution and dispersal of the human subject, new approaches informed by cultural studies, autobiography theory, and gender studies work to recover fictions of experience and retrieve submerged narratives of the self. Probing the activity of textual self-recovery among the debris of history and fantasy, visuality and desire, and culture and corporeality, The Material, the Real, and the Fractured Self imparts something of the startling beauty and the raw urgency of poetry writing across the broad modern period.

The Fractured Marketplace For Standardized Testing

Standardized testing in the United States has been increasing at a rapid pace in the last twenty-five years. The market for tests has not only been expanding rapidly, but has also been changing sharply in structure into a fractured marketplace. Indeed, one of the main features of this book is that the market for standardized testing is highly fractured - with segments of the market facing monopoly conditions, others facing oligopoly conditions and still others where near free-market conditions exist. One of the main premises of the book is that the structures of markets have strong implications for how those markets perform. While this notion is widely accepted among economists, it is not widely appreciated in educational research. A second motivation for the book is that very little scholarly attention has been focused on the standardized testing industry. This topic - the structure of the testing industry and implications for the quality of tests and test use - affects how we evaluate the learning of students, the effectiveness of teaching, the quality of schools and the educational health of the nation. Of particular concern to the authors is one vital aspect of test quality: test validity. This book is the most current and authoritative review and analysis of the market for standardized testing.

In a fractured Britain, the Genetic Enhancement Ministry have taken control. Parents buy designer babies and those with genetic faults are labelled Blemished and shunned from society. Elena Darcey is just as perfect as the other clones, but there is something different about Elena, because she’s in trouble. After helping Area 14’s most famous criminals escape, Elena has to get out before her teacher-- the formidable Margaret Murgatroyd --finds out that she is a sympathiser for the Blemished.

Conceptual Models Of Flow And Transport In The Fractured Vadose Zone

Fluid flow and solute transport within the vadose zone, the unsaturated zone between the land surface and the water table, can be the cause of expanded plumes arising from localized contaminant sources. An understanding of vadose zone processes is, therefore, an essential prerequisite for cost-effective contaminant remediation efforts. In addition, because such features are potential avenues for rapid transport of chemicals from contamination sources to the water table, the presence of fractures and other channel-like openings in the vadose zone poses a particularly significant problem, Conceptual Models of Flow and Transport in the Fractured Vadose Zone is based on the work of a panel established under the auspices of the U.S. National Committee for Rock Mechanics. It emphasizes the importance of conceptual models and goes on to review the conceptual model development, testing, and refinement processes. The book examines fluid flow and transport mechanisms, noting the difficulty of modeling solute transport, and identifies geochemical and environmental tracer data as important components of the modeling process. Finally, the book recommends several areas for continued research.

There are literally tens of thousands of Christian denominations in the world today. A visitor to a typical city will find churches scattered all over the landscape, all with different names and doctrinal beliefs, each proclaiming to the world just how divided Christians truly are. Who are those people attending all those other churches, the ones you pass by on your way to your church? If they are perhaps fellow believers, do you somehow need them or can you get along just fine without them? Where did all of those denominations come from anyway? Who started them and why? Are denominations scriptural, or do they somehow contradict the will of God merely by existing? Is it possible that some church divisions are justifiable, or even necessary? Will Jesus Christ return for a deeply divided church, or does He have a plan to end our divisions before He returns? Author Bill Sizemore, a former Bible college professor, addresses these challenging issues head on in The Fractured Church, a book that is easily the boldest discussion to date of the topic of church unity. Jesus prayed that all who believe in Him would be perfectly one, just as He and the Father are one. The apostle Paul wrote that Christians were not to be divided, but were to maintain the unity of the faith, speaking the same things and being of the same mind and judgment. Is such a thing really possible, or are our fallen natures and the power of all those denominational giants simply too much to overcome? Somewhere in the middle of reading The Fractured Church you will find yourself deeply stirred and believing, perhaps for the first time, that genuine church unity is not only possible, but inevitable. All in all, The Fractured Church is one powerful read!
