When their aunt mistakes Skyes date as her soul mate only to discover he is really Sarahs, her family tries to make up for it by finding the man Skye truly belongs with. Unfortunately, their last attempt failed miserably when they set her up for a speed-dating event, so her aunt resorts to magic to accomplish their desires. Suddenly propelled back in time without warning, Skye is saved from a brutal cougar attack by a Scottish Laird who has just returned from another skirmish and only wants to sit in front of a warm fire with a mug of ale. Instead, Aiden finds Skye and believes the unknown lad to be a spy. When he finds out the spy is a female his concern grows, as does his lust.
Aiden realizes this woman can be his downfall but she calls to him in a way he cannot deny. Has she been sent to destroy all he has fought for, or is she his salvation? Fighting his desires, he knows he must ensure the safety of his home and kin from those that wish to destroy what he has fought to hold onto.
In this tale set in fourteenth century Scotland, a witch must determine if she can trust the man who holds her life in his hands - even as he steals her heart.
In this book, a number of articles describe the vision and the way globalized DSMLs currently assist integrated DSML support teams working on systems that span many domains and concerns to determine how their work on a particular aspect influences work on other aspects.
Globalized DSMLs offer support for communicating relevant information, and for coordinating development activities and associated technologies within and across teams, in addition to providing support for imposing control over development artifacts produced by multiple teams.DSMLs can be used to support socio-technical coordination by providing the means for stakeholders to bridge the gap between how they perceive a problem and its solution, and the programming technologies used to implement a solution. They also support coordination of work across multiple teams. DSMLs developed in an independent manner to meet the specific needs of domain experts have an associated framework that regulates interactions needed to support collaboration and work coordination across different system domains.
The articles in the book describe how multiple heterogeneous modeling languages (or DSMLs) can be related to determine how different aspects of a system influence each other. The book includes a research roadmap that broadens the current DSML research focus beyond the development of independent DSMLs to one that provides support for globalized DSMLs.
The acceptance of these technologies has led to a new alternative for providing education and training--distance learning. This book focuses on the processes, techniques and tools that are being used to successfully plan, implement and operate distance learning projects. Both professionals and educators who must enter this challenging teaching and training environment in the new millennium will benefit from Evaluation and Implementation of Distance Learning: Technologies, Tools and Techniques.
If building relationships and encouraging productive change are enterprises you wish to learn, this book is for you. In this new edition, previously titled SUPPORTIVE INTERVIEWING IN HUMAN SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS, all of the material has been updated with regard to supporting research.

Chapter 7 describes channels of nonverbal information and commonly encountered nonverbal messages. Chapter 8 highlights endeavors that take center stage before, during, and after scheduled appointments.

While 3D printing has been grabbing headlines, high school, college, library, and other public makerspaces have been making things with CNC machines. With a CNC router, you can cut parts from strong, tactile, durable materials like wood. Once you have your design and material, you can set up your job and let it run. When it's done, you can put the project together for an heirloom of your own. While 3D printing can make exciting things with complex designs, CNCs are the digital workhorses that produce large-scale, long-lasting objects.

From one of the stars of Netflix's overnight sensation Queer Eye, Tan France's memoir Naturally Tan has his signature wit, style, and tells the origin story of the one of the few openly gay, South Asian men on television.
In this heartfelt, funny, touching memoir, Tan France tells his origin story for the first time. With his trademark wit, humor, and radical compassion, Tan reveals what it was like to grow up gay in a traditional South Asian family, as one of the few people of color in South Yorkshire, England. He illuminates his winding journey of coming of age, finding his voice (and style!), and how he finally came out to his family at the age of 34, revealing that he was happily married to the love of his life — a Mormon cowboy from Salt Lake City.
In Tan's own words, “The book is meant to spread joy, personal acceptance, and most of all understanding. Each of us is living our own private journey, and the more we know about each other, the healthier and happier the world will be.”

L’enregistrement de Pierre Mendès France avec Jean Lacouture ne devait faire l’objet que de cassettes de travail dont la qualité acoustique est loin de ressembler aux habituels entretiens édités par Frémeaux & Associés.
Cependant, le témoignage incarné de celui qui reste l’un des plus grands hommes politiques français du XXè siècle et qui aura revalorisé le statut d’homme d’action par la mise en pratique de valeurs morales, se devait d’entrer dans La Librairie sonore pour prendre place, de façon pérenne, parmi les grandes archives politiques et historiques que nous nous efforçons de sauver de l’oubli.
L’historien Jean-Yves Patte a conservé l’ordre chronologique des discussions en ne gardant que les séquences audibles du CD 1 jusqu’au CD 3.
Le disque 4 propose des extraits supplémentaires, comme les anecdotes de Mendès France sur les recherches des nazis ou sa rencontre avec Léo Lagrange.
Ce coffret de 4 CDs, témoignage posthume restauré et présenté par Jean-Yves Patte, n’aurait pu voir le jour sans le concours de la succession Pierre Mendès France et de M. Jean Lacouture – qui nous a fait l’amabilité de rédiger la préface du livret inclus au coffret.
