This is not a book to read but a guidebook to use. Few grant writing books provide the 2 key tools writers need to win funding: a copy of a funded proposal and a writers workbook. Grant Writing Roadmap is a standard among organizations that want to produce a winning proposal. It is a prime shelf reference that will be reached for each time your organization writes a proposal. Emma Bush has written a grant writing book designed to meet the specific needs of the novice writer. The Grant Writing Roadmap is based on real feedback from real writers who have attended her grant writing workshops. This book answers their need to review a funded proposal and moves the reader from the basic facets of grant funding to the final production of a competitive proposal. This book is a must have in the library of Faith-Based Organizations, Community-Based Organizations, and For-Profit companies seeking grants as a part of a well planned funding strategy. Emma Bush has over eighteen years of diversified experience and a proven track record in workforce development, grant writing and project design/management. Having worked as a private contractor and consultant for 14 years Ms. Bush has written competitive grants that have been awarded funding and provided services for government agencies, faith organizations, and private companies in Dallas, Texas. Emma has received local and national recognition for her work including the recipient of the John J. Gunther Award for Community and Economic Development from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for a workforce training program she designed. In addition to winning grants, she has offered grant writing classes through colleges in Texas andLouisiana. She brings to this writing a wealth of knowledge and years of successful experience in all areas of grant writing and grant management.

The Start-to-Finish, Best-Practice Guide to Implementing and Using DITA Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) is today’s most powerful toolbox for constructing information. By implementing DITA, organizations can gain more value from their technical documentation than ever before. Now, three DITA pioneers offer the first complete roadmap for successful DITA adoption, implementation, and usage. Drawing on years of experience helping large organizations adopt DITA, the authors answer crucial questions the “official” DITA documents ignore, including: Where do you start? What should you know up front? What are the pitfalls in implementing DITA? How can you avoid those pitfalls? The authors begin with topic-based writing, presenting proven best practices for developing effective topics and short descriptions. Next, they address content architecture, including how best to set up and implement DITA maps, linking strategies, metadata, conditional processing, and content reuse. Finally, they offer “in the trenches” solutions for ensuring quality implementations, including guidance on content conversion. Coverage includes: Knowing how and when to use each DITA element–and when not to Writing “minimalist,” task-oriented information that quickly meets users’ needs Creating effective task, concept, and reference topics for any product, technology, or service Writing effective short descriptions that work well in all contexts Structuring DITA maps to bind topics together and provide superior navigation Using links to create information webs that improve retrievability and navigation Gaining benefits from metadata without getting lost in complexity Using conditional processing to eliminate redundancy and rework Systematically promoting reuse to improve quality and reduce costs Planning, resourcing, and executing effective content conversion Improving quality by editing DITA content and XML markup¿ If you’re a writer, editor, information architect, manager, or consultant who evaluates, deploys, or uses DITA, this book will guide you all the way to success.

RFID is a key technology for Europe. Today there is a noticeable shift away from the days of RFID pilot projects, and towards a time where organisations are looking to RFID to drive efficiency and innovation. Although Europe is a leading player in the world of RFID technology, several challenges which are preventing RFID from reaching its full potential need to be addressed. To further the advancement of this technology, coordinated European efforts need to be promoted, specifically in the areas of standardisation, user guidelines, legislation, technology development, and research and development. These themes have been analysed, and clear recommendations have been derived, stating what the different RFID stakeholders can do to support the technology. This book is aimed at decision makers in all fields of society, e.g. in companies, politics, business associations, etc. The publication is a summary of the results of the coordination action CE RFID - "Coordinating European Efforts in the RFID Value Chain" - and is a network of European RFID technology providers, vendors and end users. It aims at promoting the use of RFID technology and supporting further development. The project was funded by the European Commission under the 6th Framework Programme.

"It is the kind of book you will return to again and again, and Claire Cook is the kind of writer you will only want more from.”—Stephanie Burns, Book Perfume Wondering how to get to that life you really thought you'd be living by now? Finally ready to dig up that buried dream? Still trying to figure out what you want to be when you grow up? Just looking for the perfect tweak to your existing life? Claire Cook speaks to real women—our fears and obstacles and hopes and desires—and gives us cutting edge tools to get where we want to go. Bursting with inspiration, insider stories, and practical strategies. Filled with humor, heart, encouragement, and great quotes. You'll hop on a plane with Claire as you figure out the road to your own reinvention. She’ll share her own stories, successes, and failures, as well as those of other reinventors, plus tips for getting a plan, staying on track, pulling together a support system, building your platform in the age of social networking, dealing with the inevitable ups and downs, overcoming perfectionism, and tuning in to your authentic self to propel you toward your goals. A little bit memoir, a lot inspiration, Never Too Late: Your Roadmap to Reinvention (without getting lost along the way) is real, grounded, and just the book you need to start reinventing your life. “Never Too Late is the perfect book for readers who love Claire Cook’s books and wonder how she got to be such a successful author. But the real purpose and accomplishment of the book is the inspiration it provides and the fascinating and amazingly helpful strategies and methods she presents for any women (‘and a few good men’) who really want to achieve what they’ve only dreamed of. The book is about change and opportunity—and how to grab them.”—Pamela Kramer, National Book Reviewer, “Never Too Late resonated with me on a level that I didn’t expect. Still at this moment, I am reviewing all the notes that I took while reading the book.”—Victoria Colotta, ArtBooksCoffee “If you need a personal cheerleader to help you along your road to reinvention, then I highly recommend this book.”—Laurie Nerat, Looking on the Sunnyside “It’s a thought-provoking, inspiring book. If you’ve thought about changing your career and following your passion, Cook’s book just might provide the needed push.”—Lesa’s Book Critiques
