The Work/Life Collision

The Work/Life Collision

By Barbara Pocock

In good condition - ex library - has markings from use - due to differing weights in books, postage maybe adjusted at checkout. Longer working hours, insecure jobs, child care, declining birth rates, parental leave, the 'mummy track', the success or failure of feminism - the levels of passion, vitriol, despair and guilt these subjects engender attest to the importance Australians place on them, and rightly so. Their effects go beyond how we feel: they affect vital economic and demographic trends. The Work/Life Collision, grounded in thorough quantitative and qualitative research, analyses how these factors affect each other, in particular the collision of work and care and its implications for how we live. Pocock demonstrates how the existing 'work/care' regime that shapes how we live and work has high social costs - for mothers, fathers, families and those who want to be both workers and carers. She weighs the hidden costs of how we live and work now - costs that can be measured in bedrooms, kitchens, workplaces and streetscapes - and in our declining birth rate and embedded gender inequality. The Work/Life Collision goes further than just explaining our growing anxiety about quality of life, despite the evidence of unmatched material wealth. Pocock proposes ways in which a new 'work/care' regime can be built, through: the redistribution of working hours the rehabilitation of degraded and insecure part-time jobs a new system of leave from paid work, and better support for mothers, fathers and all kinds of dependants. Pocock guides us through the real experiences of Australian households and points to a uniquely Australian solution to a fairer world.

Movement Training for the Stage and Screen

Movement Training for the Stage and Screen

By Jean Sabatine

In good condition - ex library - has markings from use - due to differing weights in books, postage maybe adjusted at checkout. Actors understand the importance of training the body to attain good breath control, movement, and agility. They must also develop the ability to express emotions when portraying characters. Less well understood, however, is the vital awareness of mind, spirit and body that must be developed and explored in an actor's education. Movement Training for the Stage and Screen incorporates these aspects of an actor's training in a systematic course of study - in fact, the only course of its type to be offered in one workbook. In her innovative Triadic Approach, author Jean Sabatine's constant aim is to integrate the mind, spirit, and body, helping the actor to discover and progressively build the organic connections between them - primarily through physical movement. The book includes dozens of movement exercises, each with a strongly defined physical or emotional focus, and these are fully illustrated with more than 200 step-by-step photographs. These exercises teach actors relaxation techniques, correct posture and alignment, and breath control. They are then further explored and applied to character development. In the characterization phase, scenes from such plays as Sam Shephard's True West are the basis for more physical work, which is also fully illustrated. Movement to a tempo - mainly with music - is also included, and a music list is provided to give actors a variety of tempos to work with.

Event Management

By Lynn Van Der Wagen

In good condition - has markings from use - highlighting - due to differing weights in books, postage maybe adjusted at checkout. This is the book for anyone wishing to enter the rapidly growing field of event management. Event management is quite different from ordinary business management. Most business managers can make and learn from mistakes. Not so event managers. Events typically have high costs and high risks. Events must be right first time. There are no second chances, and there are no opportunities for the manager to plan, organise, train, coach, empower and delegate over an extended period. Business projects and new product developments now culminate in events, while high-level business meetings, seminars, conferences and exhibitions are viewed as events. Senior managers realise that special skills are required for the planning of these expensive and often one-off occasions. And, of course, there are thousands of festivals and many thousands of weddings, parties, celebratory and sporting events every year, all of which require expert management. Event Management for Tourism, Cultural, Business and Sporting Events covers all the skills you will need to become a successful event manager. From this book you will learn how to design, plan, market and stage an event. You will learn how to manage staff and staffing problems and how to ensure the safety of everyone involved. And you will learn what you need to know about legal compliance, risk management, financial control, and how to evaluate the success of the events you stage. This book provides all the business skills necessary for an environment that requires flexibility, commitment and judgement.
