♥ Book Title : Wikipedia, Work and Capitalism
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book relates Wikipedians’ conceptions of their activities in terms of play, game, work and labour, to their views on Wikipedia and capitalism. The author identifies and compares ideology formations with each other, and with contemporary Marxist theory, providing critical evaluation of the perceived economic relation between peer production and capitalism. The book covers a range of topics including encyclopaedias and the digital revolution; Marxist approaches to cognitive capitalism; and crowdsourcing. The book richly contributes to the emerging literature of critical internet studies, providing a unique intersection of three fields of knowledge: social effects of digital technology; ideologies and politics of cognitive capitalism’s social relations; and the culture of contemporary capitalism. Wikipedia, Work and Capitalism will be of interest to students and scholars across a range of disciplines including political economy, sociology and digital cultures, as well as social activists, Wikipedians, and peer producers."Article| Arwid Lund| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Media Gaze
☯ Full Synopsis : "While Canada is known for its official commitment to diversity, a close look at the country's media reveals that lip service to differences notwithstanding, they rarely engage with it in ways that reflect its presence in Canadian society. The Media Gaze exposes the mainstream media's attempts to appear objective, even as they may ignore or misrepresent those who do not share their white, male, middle-class, heterosexual perspective. Drawing on compelling case studies, this incisive survey explores the societal implications of the industry's hidden bias and suggests strategies for countering its dominance."Article| Augie Fleras| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Time - What It Is - How It Works
☯ Full Synopsis : "The mystery of time has baffled physicists for more than 100 years. Thousands of pages have been written on the subject and in each case the focus is on the clues, mysteries, puzzles and paradoxes and in the end … all unresolved. If you thought Einstein cracked the problem of time, think again. He barely opened the door. Brian Greene of string theory fame asked some of the worlds leading physicists “what is time?”. This is what they said: Janna Levin of Columbia University responded with “We'd like to corner time as a thing but it defies that by being momentary, by only having definitions that harken back to notions of time itself.” Alan Guth of MIT, one of the creators of “Inflationary Cosmology” said “Time... that's the $64,000 question to physics.” David Albert of Columbia University said “Time is the thing that everyone knows intimately until you ask them to tell you about it.” Max Tegmark of MIT admits that “There is basically no aspect of time that we fully understand.” In a brief 8 pages, this article makes the subject of objective physics (vs theoretical physics) available to any layman with a scientific curiosity. In the first 2 pages the reader will “get it” and with only a bit of determination will be able to follow along as we “do the math” and address the last hanging questions. In the end I think you'll agree that this opens the door to some very new physics and also that “Time, what it is and what it does is as obvious as the wheel.”"Article| Jack Martinelli| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Advanced Practice Nursing E-Book
☯ Full Synopsis : "Covering all advanced practice competencies and roles, this book offers strategies for enhancing patient care and legitimizing your role within today’s health care system. It covers the history of advanced practice nursing, the theory behind the practice, and emerging issues. Offering a comprehensive exploration of advanced practice nursing, this edition also adds a focus on topics including the APN scope of practice, certification, and the ethical and legal issues that occur in clinical practice. The development of all major competencies of advanced practice nursing is discussed: direct clinical practice, consultation, coaching/guidance, research, leadership, collaboration, and ethical decision-making. Advanced practice competencies are discussed in relation to all advanced practice nursing and blended CNS-NP roles (case manager, acute care nurse practitioner), highlighting the shared aims and distinctions of each role. In-depth discussions on educational strategies explain how competencies develop as the nurses’ practice progresses. A chapter on research competencies demonstrates how to use evidence-based research in practice, and how to promote these research competencies to other APNs. A conceptual framework shows the clear relationship between the competencies, roles, and challenges in today’s health care environment. Practical strategies are provided for business management, contracting, and marketing. Comprehensive information covers the essential competencies of the new Doctor of Nursing Practice degree. More exemplars (case studies) provide real-life scenarios showing APN competencies in action. A new chapter shows how to provide reliable and valid data to substantiate your impact and justify equitable reimbursement for APN services, also enhancing your skills in quality improvement strategies, informatics, and systems thinking. Information on telehealth considerations covers the new sources of electronic healthcare information available to patients and describes how to counsel them on using reliable resources."Article| Ann B. Hamric| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Common Knowledge?
☯ Full Synopsis : "With an emphasis on peer–produced content and collaboration, Wikipedia exemplifies a departure from traditional management and organizational models. This iconic "project" has been variously characterized as a hive mind and an information revolution, attracting millions of new users even as it has been denigrated as anarchic and plagued by misinformation. Have Wikipedia's structure and inner workings promoted its astonishing growth and enduring public relevance? In Common Knowledge?, Dariusz Jemielniak draws on his academic expertise and years of active participation within the Wikipedia community to take readers inside the site, illuminating how it functions and deconstructing its distinctive organization. Against a backdrop of misconceptions about its governance, authenticity, and accessibility, Jemielniak delivers the first ethnography of Wikipedia, revealing that it is not entirely at the mercy of the public: instead, it balances open access and power with a unique bureaucracy that takes a page from traditional organizational forms. Along the way, Jemielniak incorporates fascinating cases that highlight the tug of war among the participants as they forge ahead in this pioneering environment."Article| Dariusz Jemielniak| Statement ..."
