Avant-garde film is almost indefinable. It is in a constant state of change and redefinition. In his highly-acclaimed history of experimental film, A.L. Rees tracks the movement of the film avant-garde between the cinema and modern art (with its postmodern coda). But he also reconstitutes the film avant-garde as an independent form of art practice with its own internal logic and aesthetic discourse.In this revised and updated edition, Rees introduces experimental film and video to new readers interested in the wider cinema, as well as offering a guide to enthusiasts of avant-garde film and new media arts. Ranging from Cezanne and Dada, via Cocteau, Brakhage and Le Grice, to the new wave of British film and video artists from the 1990s to the present day, this expansive study situates avant-garde film between the cinema and the gallery, with many links to sonic as well as visual arts. The new edition includes a review of current scholarship in avant-garde film history and includes updated reading and viewing lists. It also features a new introduction and concluding chapter, which assess the rise of video projection in the gallery since the millennium, and describe new work by the latest generation of experimental film-makers. The new edition is richly illustrated with images of the art works discussed.

The aim of this book is to provide an evaluation of uganda’s current strategy to fight corruption. Like many countries on the African continent, Uganda has deemed it necessary to make attempts to reduce and control corruption in the public sector. As awareness of the deleterious and debilitating effects of corruption has grown, so too have both internal political factors and external pressures from aid donors increased in order to push for fundamental change in this respect.
Identifying the most effective and efficient production systems and then analysing these to determine the factors contributing to the results is paramount to the understanding, management and planning of future operations. There is a need to increase current productivity levels in underground coal mining and guidelines for achieving this need to be developed. Improvement in productivity and better resource utilisation as a consequence of this research effort, would derive a cost benefit difficult to quantify precisely, but is expected to be of the order of millions of Rand.
Slow-Release Fertilizer (SRF) is an improved variety of fertilizer which is developed through appropriate product design. It is unique by its chemical & physical properties, environmental safety & its stability against mechanical stress, hygrometry & temperature. It can be applied less frequently, making them more cost-effective and save time & labor. Hence, the necessity for SRFs with the release of nutrients over extended period of time is increasing continuously with population growth, particularly in developing countries. This book aims therefore to help policy makers & planners in this field by providing a complete account of all aspects of SRF & holding a pre-design of SRF manufacturing plant.
Ghana’s effort to improve the standard of living of her citizenry has necessitated the promulgation of several policies and programmes, and the establishment of institutions to that effect. One of the most significant of them is the decentralisation programme, which is aimed at countering the widespread failure of centralised economic planning, to take account of local aspirations and to deliver appropriate local services. It was a move to a more democratic state, with much higher level of local representation, participation, choice and accountability which lend support for good governance and poverty reduction. The decentralisation programme offers a uniform structure and processes for all Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies but there would be different outcomes and outputs due to how each local authority implements the programme. Using the case of the Tema Metropolis, this study examines how governance and poverty reduction have been enhanced through decentralisation, with the view to informing future strategies.

A detailed analysis and comparison of different Maximum power point tracking (MPPT) techniques and algorithms are conducted in this book. The basic aim of this document is to provide a platform to the Photovoltaic (PV) users and industry, so they can easily select the most appropriate and customized MPPT for PV application and appliances. A comprehensive review of the MPPT techniques applied in photovoltaic systemis conducted and founded that each Maximum power point (MPP) tracker had its own merits and demerits. These MPPT techniques are implemented and commercially available. The proper selection of MPPT technique is a laborious work due to high number of available MPPT techniques. Therefore, a proper review and analysis of these techniques was mandatory. So for this purpose we concentrated on it during our research. Since, MPPT is a confusing part of PV systems and there is a still research gaps in this field. We classified all the prominent techniques of MPPT on the basis of cost, efficiency, control variables, accuracy, implementation, speed, load, size and rapid changing environment. In future this literature can serve as a convenient reference for MPPT users and developers
