Blank Slate provides graphic designers and advertisers with photographic dummies for the true-to-life and convincing presentation of their corporate designs. Every graphic designer and advertising professional knows the drill. After a logo or corporate design has been created, it needs to be presented and sold to a client. Showing preliminary drafts on paperboard isn't adequate. In order to communicate the idea behind the design, it is much more effective to present it in the application for which it is meant - whether on a shopping bag, on a company car, in a brochure, or on a variety of other products. This method of presentation makes designs come to life and gives the client a real idea of how they will work and why. Blank Slate is a compilation of 400 photographic dummies of everyday objects that are depicted in the book and can also be downloaded for free as digital files. With the help of these dummies, any designer can present his or her work in the way that gives clients the most concrete grasp of how their corporate designs will function in the real world. Until now, hardly any suitable dummies existed for creating such presentations. The few that did exist were of moderate quality and high prices. In a similar fashion to our bestseller Neubau Welt, the handbook Blank Slate provides designers with inspiring examples and practical digital tools that will make the implementation, presentation, and sale of their work much easier.
This book says much in a simple measure. The style in which it is written allows the reader a coherent explanation of the fundamentals of pre-sentence reporting. It is a practical book that pursues a practical solution to the inadequacies of many officers who serve in our Criminal Justice Systems. "As the Holy Bible is to the Catechist, so should this book be to the Probation Officer". The illustrations and explanations that the book gives are useful material for those studying the theory and practice of Criminology; a discipline that is part of the teaching of Sociology, Social Work and Law. To make it useful for starters, Steve clarifies on the concept of a pre-sentence report, noting that it is a holistic process. To him, Justice in its very nature is an integral element in the lives of individuals. It is at the core of the organisation and function of communities, societies and states. It is blended within the history and the future of any society. To fully understand the skill of administering justice through effective writing of pre-sentence reports, then this book is a must read. (EDWARD SILVESTRE KAWEESI, MA, MBA, BA, and PhD.

If I lose the light of the sun, I will write by candlelight, moonlight, no light, If I lose paper and ink, I will write in blood on forgotten walls. I will write always.

This collection of writings from 1989-1991 is the classic Rollins book. From dramatic fiction shorts detailing stark, disturbing realities to gut-wrenching tour journals destroying all misconceptions of the glamour of fame and the music industry; from the challenging poetry to revealing dream sequences, Rollins' writing is unflinching in its honesty, uncompromising in its truth and irresistibly addictive.

This work seeks to contribute to the growing literature on academic discourses by probing into a relatively new reading-to-write examination genre featured in the Singapore Cambridge Advanced level General Paper. The recently introduced Application Question on the GP comprehension question paper, aimed at producing more critical thinkers, makes an array of new linguistic and rhetorical demands on students taking the General Paper. Appraising Arguments unveils the many hidden expectations in the AQ response genre, as viewed through the lens of Systemic Functional Linguistics, APPRAISAL and genre theory. It is hoped that Appraising Arguments will grant junior college students and GP teachers alike fresh insights into the Application Question and its manifold requirements.
