Insured for Murder
All the ingredients of a first-rate thriller stand out in this investigative report by Robin Yocum and Catherine Candisky, who reveal a sinister and deadly con game that was three years in the making: a murder, an insurance scam with a multi-million dollar payoff, a playboy businessman, a sinister stun-gun-toting neurologist, false identities, and an international manhunt. On the morning of April 16, 1988, the emergency squad was called to the office of Dr Richard P Boggs, a respected neurologist in Glendale, California. On the floor of the examining room was the body of Melvin E. Hanson, the vice president of the Just Sweats athletic clothing store chain, based in Columbus, Ohio.Apparently, he had collapsed and died of heart failure during a routine examination. Early next morning, Hanson's business partner and the company president, John B. Hawkins, arrived from Columbus and had the body unceremoniously cremated. The coroner ruled that Hanson died of natural causes, so there was nothing to be investigated, and the Glendale police did not pursue the case further. But this wasn't just another unfortunate death. There was something very, very wrong here.The body lying on the floor was not Hanson's. The corpse was an anonymous double who had been murdered in a scheme to fraudulently collect on Hanson's life insurance policy.

Constructing a Personal Orientation to Music Teaching
Constructing a Personal Orientation to Music Teaching promotes inquiry and reflection to facilitate teacher growth, lifelong learning and a disposition toward educational change. Strongly grounded in current theories and research in teacher education, the text engages readers in analyzing their own experiences in order to conceptualize the complexity of teaching; involves them in clarifying their reasons for seeking a career in teaching; supports their insights, questions, and reflections about their work; and promotes a reflective, critical attitude about schools in general as teachers are urged to think of themselves as change agents in school settings.

Employment Law and Human Rights
The European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR), Human Rights Act 1998 (HRA) and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union have had a significant impact on UK employment law, but the ultimate contours of this are still developing and emerging, particularly post-BREXIT. In the face of these ever-changing human rights debates, questions concerning workplace behaviour are more abundant than ever: with such increased connectivity, how do we separate worklife from private life? In the world of smartphones and tablets, is it lawful for employers to expect around the clock service and what flexibility should we expect in the workplace, both from employers and employees?This new edition examines these questions in detail, looking at the ongoing effects of human rights legislation on employment law. Including far more detailed coverage of the impact of equality laws on religion and beliefs, sexual orientation, and age, as well as the more established protected characteristics of race, sex, and disability, this book will provide practitioners with the vital information they need for the increasingly prevalent employment cases concerning human rights. This newedition has been substantially revised to take into account new legislation and the wealth of cases that have emerged since the previous edition published in 2007.This book provides an introduction to the sources and practices of human and fundamental rights and their relationship to employment law, before launching into an analysis of various working conditions. Topics covered include: prohibition on slavery and forced labour; equality rights in relation to cultural, religious, gendered, and linguistic diversity; special protections put in place for children; protection from unjustified dismissal; and the interface between family and work includingmaternity and paternity rights. Comprehensive coverage of available remedies, spanning from the right to a fair trial and using European law in the courts and tribunals, to making a preliminary reference to the European Court of Justice and applying to the ECHR, ensures that the book is of real,practical value.Regarded as one of the foremost authorities in this area, this edition is a must-have for all employment lawyers and students.

Communities Magazine #179 – Eco-Building – (Summer 2018)
For reasons both practical and ideological, intentional community has long been a hotbed of eco-building activity—optimizing available resources while enriching participants’ relationships to self, others, and nature. In Communities’ “Eco-Building” issue (Summer 2018, #179), authors share their eco-building journeys, ranging from nearly-free stick-framed shelters to high-end green developments. They examine how to assess whether a building is actually “eco,” hard choices they’ve needed to make, the benefits and challenges of taking on eco-building projects in community, or of retrofitting vs. building new, and much more. We hope you’ll draw useful information, inspiration, and insight from their stories. Once again, the issue is available via free/by donation digital download at
