The current volume contains selected papers submitted after Critical Link 5 (Sydney 2007) and arises from its topic - quality interpreting being a communal responsibility of all the participants. It takes the much discussed theme of professionalisation of community interpreting to a new level by stating that achieving quality depends not only on the technical skills and ethics of interpreters, but equally upon all other parties that serve multilingual populations: speakers, employers and administrators, educational institutions, researchers, and interpreters. Major articles outline both innovative practices in legal and medical settings and prevailing deficiencies in community interpreting in different countries. While Part I, A shared responsibility: The policy dimension, addresses the macro environment of specific social policy contexts with constrains that affect interpreting, Part II,Investigations and innovations in quality interpreting, reveals a number of admirable cases of interpreters working together with their client institutions in a variety of social settings. Part III is dedicated to the questions of Pedagogy, ethics and responsibility in interpreting. The collection is an important reference book catering to the interpreting community: interpreting practitioners and interpreter users, researchers, educators, and students.
It is difficult to imagine modem technology without small particles, 1-1000 nm in size, because virtually every industry depends in some way on the use of such materials. Catalysts, printing inks, paper, dyes and pigments, many medicinal products, adsorbents, thickening agents, some adhesives, clays, and hundreds of other diverse products are based on or involve small particles in a very fundamental way. In some cases finely divided materials occur naturally or are merely a convenient form for using a material. In most cases small particles play a special role in technology because in effect they constitute a different state of matter because of the basic fact that the surface of a material is different from the interior by virtue of the unsaturated bonding interactions of the outermost layers of atoms at the surface of a solid. Whereas in a macroscale particle these differences are often insignificant, as the 9 surface area per unit mass becomes larger by a factor of as much as 10 , physical and chemical effects such as adsorption become so pronounced as to make the finely divided form of the bulk material into essentially a different material- usually one that has no macroscale counterpart.
In a blink of an eye, Amy's life is changed. After her parents are killed in a car accident, she is forced to move from her bustling, vibrant life in New York City to the quaint town of Willow, Maine, to live with her grandfather and his step-son, Adam. Although skeptical at first, she finds that she likes her new life, and in time, she may even find everything she's ever dreamed of. About the Author Jayne Barker Bowman began writing In a Blink of an Eye: Lighthouse Series with encouragement from her father, who always cherished the stories she had written for him. Bowman grew up in upstate New York in the small town of Osceola, where she met and married her high school sweetheart, and the two have been together for forty years. She now splits her time travelling between Florida in the winter months and Ontario, Canada, in the summer. Bowman has two sons and two grandchildren.
