Singular spaces, for example two spheres joined at a point, have no such structure on their homology groups. This reflects the breakdown of the local property at the singularities, which no longer have neighborhoods homeomorphic to Rn . Surprisingly though, much of the manifold theory can be recovered for a large class of singular spaces if we consider not the usual homology but instead intersection homology. Thus intersection homology provides us with powerful new techniques for the study of singular spaces, which in turn throw new light on manifolds.
Clearly, these numbers show that pensions for the huge majority of Civil Service retirees are modest. There is a lot of focus on the top end of pensions in the public service but it is important to note the figures I have just quoted. These large pensions are not representative. It must be stressed that 38% of civil servants are on occupational pensions of €10,000 or less and 25% have pensions paid from Vote of €5,000 or less – some people may of course have other pension income, but these numbers show that commentators should be very cautious about claiming that pensions are excessive.”
Co-occurring disorder refers to the co-occurrence of two or more mental health or substance use disorders. Persons with a substance abuse problem have an increased chance of having a mental health problem. Likewise, persons with mental health problems are at a higher risk of having a substance abuse problem (Skinner et al. 2004). These disorders appear to be more prevalent among the drunk driving population as compared to the general population. The reason for these disorders may vary. For example, in cases where alcohol abuse may be a consequence of an offender’s self-medication due to a mental health issue, the alcohol abuse may be a symptom of a greater problem which will determine the method of treatment(s). Moreover, many offenders who abuse substances also have histories of trauma, physical and sexual abuse, and co-occurring mental disorders (e.g., anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression) or drug-use disorders that can make treatment more complex (SAMHSA 2005). As such, the national Institute on drug Abuse (nIdA) recommends an integrated approach for dealing with these offenders (nIdA 2006).

The major limitation is the lack of rigour used in the development of this guideline. For example, the methods used to search for evidence were not specified and no criteria were described for selecting the evidence. Specific recommendations were not identifiable and there was no link between recommendations and the supporting evidence. The authors state that evidence-based data were cited in the literature detailed in the reference section, and consensus-based statements were identified in the text. The introduction to the guideline states, “Consensus decisions have been made if there was no current evidence-based data available to deal with a specific clinical issue or where evidence-based data may have been impractical in the Canadian environment” (p. v).
“I know this is a good school, but going back over specifics and talking to colleagues, I found real reasons behind the fact that we are a really good school. Now I have evidence to back up my beliefs.” “I don’t know if I learned a lot more about the school improvement efforts at my school, but I did learn about how my school works, and its strengths and weaknesses. It [the course] made me want to work harder to get parents and the community involved, and it made me feel empow- ered to try to make such changes.”

As we have seen in previous chapters, the Maritime Worker was placed at a particular historical, political and social juncture. It attempted to exploit the features that comprised this juncture into a socialist program of political and trade union development. These features were embodied in the text of the Maritime Worker in a number of ways, and are found in historical articles, articles of broad social commentary such as those which reflected on religion and class, political commentary and idiomatic political quotes, as well as articles of general interest. All these features of coherency and intelligibility combined against the backdrop of a particular historical circumstance in which the objectives of the Maritime Worker were clearly to make sense of the competing features of signification which abounded in this period. The task was then to try and direct them towards specific political and industrial outcomes for the Waterside Workers' Federation under the banner of a general socialist reorientation of society and its political systems. Therefore the ideological agenda which drove the Waterside Workers' Federation was one in which it was envisaged that the different discourses which made up the collective consciousness of Australian waterside workers could be subsumed into a comprehensive whole. The Maritime Worker was clearly designed for ideological purposes in the sense that it was believed that control of ideas and images could be used to bring about change and to create a sense of political identification for its readers. Healy stated this purpose in the inaugural edition of the Maritime Worker when he declared its function to be "an organising and propaganda m e d iu m " . The Maritime Worker therefore consisted of an amalgam of different discourses - some having their basis in Australian Labor Party traditions, others sourcing from the political texts of the Soviet Union and so forth. This notion of discourse is being used in its most general sense, in that what is being talked about is the social element of language - its content, function and social significance. This notion of discourse can be found also in ideology in which the concept relates, for instance, to those features by which institutions (university history faculties or unions) produce specific ways or modes of talking that are related to the place and nature of that institution. We can say therefore that discourse produces a set
I think coming to UCSB, I was a little shocked by how fast things move in the quarter system, so I would tell a high school student to mentally prepare yourself for very fast moving classes. As far as computer science specifically, I wish I had known even the basics of programming techniques because coming in with some previous experience definitely helps. My advice, if you haven’t programmed before, would be to at least talk to someone you know who has done some programming, or if you have time, take a programming class at your local community college – it will help a lot!
