As a way of making up to them for time lost, Olivia spends months every year planning a lavish holiday that everyone in her family will enjoy. This summer she has arranged a dream trip in the Mediterranean on a luxurious yacht, which she hopes will be the most memorable vacation of all. Her lavish gesture every year expresses her love for them, and regret at all the important times she missed during her children's younger years. Her younger daughter, Cassie, a hip London music producer, refuses the invitation altogether, as she does every year. Her older daughter, Liz, lives in her mother's shadow, with a terror of failure as she tries to recapture her dream of being a writer. And her sons, John and Phillip, work for Olivia, for better or worse, with wives who wish they didn't. In the splendor of the Riviera, this should be a summer to remember, with Olivia's children, grandchildren, and daughters-in-law on board. But as with any family gathering, there are always surprises, and no matter how glamorous the setting things don't always turn out as ones hopes. Family dynamics are complicated, old disappointments die hard, and as forgiveness and surprising revelations enter into it, new bonds are formed, and the future takes on a brighter hue. And one by one, with life's irony, Olivia's children find themselves committing the same "sins" for which they blamed their mother for so many years. It is a summer of compassion, important lessons, and truth. The Sins of the Mother captures the many sides of family love: complex, challenging, funny, passionate, and hopefully enduring. Along the way, we are enthralled by an unforgettable heroine, a mother strong enough to take more than her fair share of the blame, wise enough to respect her children for who they really are, and forgiving enough to love them unconditionally.
Gretchen "Gertie" Hirsch is a passionate home seamstress, an in demand sewing teacher and creator/writer of one of the web's most popular sewing blogs: Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing. The blog began as a way for readers to follow Gretchen's progress as she made her way through all fourteen fashions from her favourite 1950s sewing book, Vogue's New Book for Better Sewing (a "Julie and Julia esque" experiment for the modern seamstress). It quickly became a place for Gretchen to share detailed sewing tutorials and spirited posts about sewing as it relates to fashion history, pop culture, body image and gender. An extension of the blog, Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing: A Modern Guide to Couture Style Sewing Using Basic Vintage Techniques is a hardworking reference book, packed with techniques our greatgrandmothers could have done in their sleep but have been forgotten over the decades, all shown in step by step photographed and illustrated tutorials. It is also a stylish, spirited pattern book featuring 14 customisable wardrobe essentials inspired by Vogue's New Book for Better Sewing, many shown in several different variations, for a total of 25 projects. Projects range from a pencil skirt and portrait blouse to a wiggle dress and suit jacket. All of the projects are modelled by charming Gertie, who has the proportions and curves of a typical modern woman, not a super model.
This research has two primary, interwoven themes - Muslim women and veiling, and discriminations experienced by Muslim women as a result of their veiling. The study explored the experiences of a small sample of veiled Muslim women in New Zealand in order to better understand the context around their experiences. By understanding these contexts, it is possible to identify themes in which discrimination occurs, determine how widespread incidents are, and to better understand the origins and nature of the types of discrimination which occur, such as whether it is mostly overt or covert in nature. From this research we also gain a better understanding about the generation and maintenance of ideological beliefs held by people who discriminate against Muslim women. In addition, this research explored why Muslim women choose to wear a head covering, despite many of their experiences. The veil has multiple meanings for Muslim women, which span across several areas of their life, and which are also discussed in this research. Many of the findings here can also be applied to other areas of society in which discrimination occurs.
The livestock sector plays a vital role in the economies of many developing countries. It provides food, or more specifically animal protein in human diets, income, employment and possibly foreign exchange. For low income producers, livestock also serve as a store of wealth; provide drought power and organic fertilizer for crop production and a means of transport. The importance of milk and milk products in human diet cannot be over-emphasized in a country like India, where milk is the only source of animal protein for the predominant vegetarian population. It provides the primary source of nutrition for young mammals before they are able to digest other types of food. The early lactation milk is known as colostrum, and carries the mother's antibodies to the baby. It can reduce the risk of many diseases in the baby. The exact components of raw milk vary by species, but it contains significant amounts of fat, protein and calcium. In 2001 India became the world leader in milk production with a production volume of 84 million tons, followed closely by the USA and by 2020 production will increase to 199 million tons.
Children with communication impairments face the greatest challenge in accessing vital services. In Uganda like many other developing countries there is a general lack of adequate experts to work with these vulnerable persons.

This publication is a timely intervention which can be a useful tool to direct efforts geared towards research and other development initiatives in the least served parts of the world. The book offers many insights into opportunities relating to language development among of children with learning difficulties and associated speech delays which can be adapted with minimal resources for the benefit different stakeholders more especially the parents. As a point of departure, the book recommends practical ways working with parents and and research endeavors as a means of serving as many children with learning difficulties with associated speech and language delays in Uganda and other countries in similar situations.

Economists and policy makers around the world believe that education promotes economic growth and reduces the poverty. Investment in education helps to increase individual productivity that provide better earnings, and reduces the inequality in the society. Many governments in developing countries realized the importance of education and implemented new policy initiatives to improve education. Many developing countries introduced free education policies, school expansion programs, and conditional cash transfer programs to increase the quantity of education. Although these new policies help to achieve significant progress in education, many children in developing countries are still not enrolling in schools or receiving a low-quality education. Furthermore, gender disparity in education is another concern in many developing countries. This study assess both quantity and quality aspect of education policy in developing countries using two case studies in Uganda and Sri Lanka.

Women entrepreneurs play an important role in creating job, wealth and innovation across countries. This is quite evident from the reports of the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor Study. Any research study that examines the challenges and how these were overcome by women entrepreneurs assumes greater importance given the rising population of women entrepreneurs. In recent decades, the country has undergone tremendous changes and has experienced higher rate of growth – economically, industrially and technologically. Increasing educating facilities for education and training, industrialization, new economic policy, positive approach of government, availability of financial resources, entrepreneurship development, training facility and changing socio-economic-political environment encouraging women to enter into entrepreneurial activity. Despite the fact that development of women entrepreneurship has greater attention, there are many limiting factors inhibiting the creation of an industry well-suited to women. In India, women are regarded as the better half of the Society. In reality still our society is male dominating one.
African Woman continue to be the "piece of good" fortune to several African children’s growth and development. Many African Women today, are playing vital roles in the economic development of their various countries. It is important therefore that the practice of encouraging savings habits starts with the African Market Woman. Many of these women control huge sums of moneys in circulation in their various countries. Many African markets, where various goods from staples, groceries, clothing, cosmetics, healthcare products, electrical gadgets and many more are traded, are dominated by women. There are thousands and even millions of dollars worth of goods changing hands in those markets on daily basis. The ability for banks and other financial institutions of the African countries to mobilize funds from these market women for savings and subsequently lending to corporations which invest into profitable economic ventures would help in reducing the poverty in the sub-regions and also free these nations from the self imposed neocolonialism - financial and economic dependency on the Western and Asian developed Countries and other International Institutions for aids, grants and loans.
Many children with speech and language disorders are academically and psychologically affected as they articulate words wrongly when they try to communicate verbally. It is worth noting that, since the establishment of educational assessment centres in Kenya in September, 1984, many children with speech and language problems have been identified and placed in schools. Studies carried out in other, countries such as Finland, the United States, Canada show that speech disorders have been identified and effective intervention carried out. However, a study to identify speech sound disorders has never been done in Kenya. This prompted a study of this magnitude to identify speech sound disorders in children with speech and language disorders and ultimately recommend intervention measures. The research designs used were ex-post facto and ethnographic which were quantitative and qualitative. The population from which the study sample was drawn came from school-going children in Nairobi Province aged between 6 to 13 years 11 months. The researcher in identifying the sample used purposive sampling for piloting and for the actual study.
The modest goal of World Health Organization (WHO), of reducing DMFT (Decayed, Missing, Filled teeth) to below 3 for 12- year old and caries prevalence below 50 -60% for 5-6 year olds has not been achieved in developing countries. In most of the developing countries including India, these goals are unlikely to be achieved in the next decade or more without a major change in the health policies and delivery system. Barriers exist that prevent many school aged children, not all of whom are poor, from accessing dental care that cannot be overcome by traditional private practice. If oral health care of all children have to be taken care of , rich and poor alike, then better ways to bring oral health care to children have to be considered. It is important to sensitize policymakers about spreading health awareness right from school level
The need for nutritious foods to suppliement breat milk in order to prevent/reduce protein/energy malnutrition (PEM) is now being met through comerically produced foods prepared by high technology porcesses. Complementary foods so prepared are excellent products that meet the nutritional requirements of young children. However, the products, as marketed are too expensive for the target groups in the developing countries. It is therefore desirable to develop less expensive but equally nutritious foods, using locally available staple foods and simple local technologies that are adaptadable at rural and househod levels.Maize and defatted sesamee were blended to produce nutriious complementary food products while malting and fermentation improved the quality and availability of their proteins and reduced the anti-nutritional factors that may affect the utilization of their nutrients as well as the health of consumers. Traditional processes which make it possible to utilize these potentially rich and easily available sources of nutrients in the formulation of complementary foods would help in improving the nutritional status of the populace, especially in the developing countries
