The appearance of Margaret Atwood's first major collection of poetry marked the beginning of a truly outstanding career in Canadian and international letters. The voice in these poems is as witty, vulnerable, direct, and incisive as we've come to know in later works, such as Power Politics, Bodily Harm, and Alias Grace. Atwood writes compassionately about the risks of love in a technological age, and the quest for identity in a universe that cannot quite be trusted. Containing many of Atwood's best and most famous poems, The Circle Game won the 1966 Governor General's Award for Poetry and rapidly attained an international reputation as a classic of modern poetry.

Bernadette "Bernie" Sheridan, has the Carlos Lunas case in the bag. She's smart, confident, and fueled by personal tragedy. She knows all too well what's at stake for the six-year-old, Mexican-American boy, who lost his parents to a drunk driver. After all, her own mother and father--her adopted parents--died tragically when she was only thirteen, and she's been struggling with the emotional loss ever since. Now, nearing forty and jaded as ever, she's adamant about saving Carlos from a fate similar to her own, even if only by winning him a healthy monetary settlement. Even if it means she must harken back to a painful childhood in order to do so. There are other obstacles waiting for Bernie: a hotshot, misogynist defense attorney will challenge her case; her beloved grandmother's deteriorating health will threaten her only semblance of family; and a handsome economist will begin to test her iron-clad vulnerability. Surely, she'll be able to forge past all this chaos. For Carlos's sake. But what will happen when her birth mother, Julie, tries to reenter the picture thirty-seven years after giving her away? Will Bernie decide to toss that aside too, on her martyrly mission for justice? Meeting Julie may be just the thing Bernie needs to win the Lunas case in the end. And learning her harrowing story may also provide the missing piece in the tragic puzzle of her haunted childhood. Told through the verging, alternating viewpoints of two broken women in two different eras, The Circle Game is at once a thoughtful commentary on female agency, racial bias, and domestic abuse, as well as a nuanced novel wrought with literary heft and profound psychological tension. "Tanya Nichols' The Circle Game sets two memorable characters on a collision course: Bernadette, an idealistic attorney overwhelmed by courtroom challenges and more personal questions of identity and purpose; and Julie, her anonymous birth mother, whose story unfolds decades earlier in a dingy trailer parked behind a biker bar. Nichols' prose consistently grabs the reader with its lyrical clarity, and implicates us in the lives of complex and engaging characters. The novel moves us deeply in all the best ways..." --John Hales, author of Shooting Polaris: A Personal Survey in the American West "California's great Central Valley long has been fertile ground for novelists eager to write about immigrants, busted dreams and the moral questions facing real people in their everyday lives. With The Circle Game, where the ghosts of the past lurk in the corners of every chapter, Tanya Nichols zeroes in on good intentions that lead to fatal consequences. It's a tale of families, motorcycle outlaws, lovers, and redemption. You won't soon forget it." --Bill McEwen, GV Wire "The Circle Game has the power to show us that, even after years of great tragedy and loneliness, only forgiveness can open the circle of family and let in those we need most." -- Kristin FitzPatrick, author of My Pulse is and Earthquake

Clarifying the problem: who has the problem, and what sort of problem is it? 2. Collecting evidence: how serious is it, and what are the causes and effects? 3. Planning: what can be done, who will do it, when and how? 4. Action: converting the plan to action, monitoring and review In each chapter the discussion of planning strategies is supported by a case study example of its use in practice, together with materials for teachers to use and adapt in their own classroom contexts. Sections include: * literacy skills * maths skills * science * thinking and learning skills * dyslexia * handwriting * speech and language difficulties Published in a loose-leaf format, this pack provides invaluable source material for all classroom teachers, and will also be of help to special needs co-ordinators planning INSET work and whole-school approaches under the Code of Practice.

The Essential Guide to Flash Games is a unique tool for Flash game developers. Rather than focusing on a bunch of low-level how-to material, this book dives straight into building games. The book is divided into specific game genre projects, covering everything from old classics such as a Missile Command-style game, to hot new genres such as retro evolved. The chapters build in complexity through the book, and new tools are introduced along the way that can be reused for other games. The game projects covered start simple and increase in complexity as more and more tools are added to your tool chest. Ten full game projects are discussed in detail. Each solves a very different game development problem and builds on the knowledge gained from the previous project. Many advanced game development techniques are covered, including particle systems, advanced controls, artificial intelligence, blitting, scrolling, and more.

In 1992, a summer course 'Demographic Perspectives on Living Arrangements' as well as a one-day workshop 'Recent Issues in Household Modelling' were held in Wassenaar, The Netherlands. This volume is based on the lectures delivered during the summer course, as well as on the presentations made in the workshop. As such, the present volume combines the two elements of transfer of knowledge, on the one hand, and updating the state-of-the-art in the field of household demography, especially in household modelling, on the other hand. In organizing the contents and structure of this volume, we have aimed at creating a book that covers the field of household demography and household modelling in a certain logical and comprehensive way. The purpose of this book is to offer a comprehensive treatment of recent developments in various aspects of the growing field of household demography. Since these recent developments have particularly occurred in household analysis and modelling, these topics will receive special emphasis. The book was written for demographers, social scientists, and planners who are involved in the study and projection of popUlation in general, and of households in particular.

Martial Arts, The Circle Of Life takes an in depth look at the students journey in the martial arts and the hurdles they face at each level and correlates it with the human life cycle and the challenges we face during the different stages of life. For example, a new white belt student enters a class with the same open mind, curiosity and trust as a young child, ready to learn and absorb what the teacher has to offer, with no hang ups or insecurities. They believe in what is being taught and are excited about what they are learning. The next level is where curiosity begins to dominate just as preteen will ask several questions and often experiement a little more. Martial Arts, The Circle Of Life is a good tool for both instructors and students and is beneficial for the student that may be starting to feel discouraged about continuing a training program.

Game theory is concerned with strategic interaction among several decision-makers. In such strategic encounters, all players are aware of the fact that their actions affect the other players. Game theory analyzes how these strategic, interactive considerations may affect the players' decisions and influence the final outcome. This textbook focuses on applications of complete-information games in economics and management, as well as in other fields such as political science, law and biology. It guides students through the fundamentals of game theory by letting examples lead the way to the concepts needed to solve them. It provides opportunities for self-study and self-testing through an extensive pedagogical apparatus of examples, questions and answers. The book also includes more advanced material suitable as a basis for seminar papers or elective topics, including rationalizability, stability of equilibria (with discrete-time dynamics), games and evolution, equilibrium selection and global games.
