Download PDF Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia by Pablo Oppezzo and published by BoD – Books on Demand. This book was released on 2012-02-10 with total page 466 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is considered a single disease with extremely variable course, and survival rates ranging from months to decades. It is clear that clinical heterogeneity reflects biologic diversity with at least two major subtypes in terms of cellular proliferation, clinical aggressiveness and prognosis. As CLL progresses, abnormal hematopoiesis results in pancitopenia and decreased immunoglobulin production, followed by nonspecific symptoms such as fatigue or malaise. A cure is usually not possible, and delayed treatment (until symptoms develop) is aimed at lengthening life and decreasing symptoms. Researchers are playing a lead role in investigating CLL's cause and the role of genetics in the pathogenesis of this disorder. Research programs are dedicated towards understanding the basic mechanisms underlying CLL with the hope of improving treatment options.

Book excerpt: “High-school theater departments willing to experiment with something new might try this as an alternative to the same old reruns of Grease and Romeo and Juliet.” —Kirkus Reviews Newbery Medalist Paul Fleischman has considered the advice of performers and producers in this newly refreshed and thoroughly updated edition of a high-school tour de force.

Cue the lights for Zap, a nonstop farce that juxtaposes seven different plays—performed simultaneously—with comic genius. An extensive author’s note provides information and insight on the plays and playwrights spoofed in Zap.
Download PDF Digital Play by Stephen Kline and published by McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP. This book was released on 2003 with total page 379 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In a marketplace that demands perpetual upgrades, the survival of interactive play ultimately depends on the adroit management of negotiations between game producers and youthful consumers of this new medium. The authors suggest a model of expansion that encompasses technological innovation, game design, and marketing practices. Their case study of video gaming exposes fundamental tensions between the opposing forces of continuity and change in the information economy: between the play culture of gaming and the spectator culture of television, the dynamism of interactive media and the increasingly homogeneous mass-mediated cultural marketplace, and emerging flexible post-Fordist management strategies and the surviving techniques of mass-mediated marketing. Digital Play suggests a future not of democratizing wired capitalism but instead of continuing tensions between "access to" and "enclosure in" technological innovation, between inertia and diversity in popular culture markets, and between commodification and free play in the cultural industries. -- publisher description.

Download PDF Playwriting for Puppet Theatre by Jean M. Mattson and published by Scarecrow Press. This book was released on 1997-07-21 with total page 242 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Playwriting for Puppet Theatre provides a foundation for those puppeteers, teachers and librarians who want to develop suitable scripts for puppet theatre. Mattson explores the difference between traditional theatre and puppet theatre and notes the special characteristics of the various puppets. The important aspects of script writing are then addressed. She considers the many general questions which must be answered by the playwright: the type of puppet to be used, the audience, and availability of resources and facilities. Suggestions are then given for dramatizing original ideas and for adapting well-known stories. The chapter on plot development emphasizes the importance of perspective, transitional material and the need for action. One chapter proposes various ways to develop a character through dialogue, names, and behavior. Another chapter demonstrates how the use of rhyme can add interest and humor to a puppet play. Teachers will find suggestions on how to develop a play on a specific theme or about a specific character. Some attention is also given to the mechanics of writing a play. Includes a group of puppet plays which have been successfully performed by Seattle Puppetory Theatre. Among them are Rumplestiltskin, The Princess and the Pea, The Bad-Tempered Wife, The Golden Axe, The Swineherd, and The Fisherman and His Wife. Production notes follow each script. Several samples of manipulation charts are included which may be used as an aid in blocking the puppets and the puppeteers for the various hand puppet productions.

Spiked blond hair. And a smile to stop a man cold. She’s Riley Callahan, the hell-on-wheels daughter of a rock superstar. When her famous father flees the country to avoid a tax evasion charge, Riley turns government freelancer to support herself—and is soon accused of leaking confidential information to the criminal underworld. That’s why U.S. marshal Charlie Zap is hot on her trail. He’s trying to stick close like a pair of skintight jeans, but follwing the ultimate party girl requires quick thinking and fancy footwork. So what if this hunk in biker boots happens to be in the right place at the right time to save her life? Riley may not think she needs any help, but if she even tries to clear her father’s name, her new babysitter’s coming along for the ride. Who would have guessed that they’d end up cruising the country together in a pink Cadillac—visiting Zap’s endearing family and mixing with Elvis clones at Graceland? Soon enough, the biggest shock is what Zap’s doing to Riley’s heart.
