SUCCESSFUL WRITING AT WORK, 11th Edition, features an abundance of real-world examples and problems, an accessible writing style, and detailed guidelines for planning, drafting, revising, editing, formatting, and producing professional documents and graphics in the global workplace. Students are presented with topics in four logically sequenced sections, beginning with a discussion of the writing process and collaboration, followed by material on basic business communications (including e-communications and social media), letters, and resumes; conducting research and documenting sources; and more advanced tasks such as preparing visuals, websites, instructions, procedures, proposals, short and long reports, and presentations. With each new writing assignment, students learn to become effective problem solvers, to work effectively as members of a collaborative team, to understand their global audience, and to select the best communication technologies to accomplish their goals.

For first-year courses in Composition/Rhetoric. This version of Strategies for Successful Writing: A Rhetoric, Research Guide, Reader and Handbook has been updated to reflect the 8th Edition of the MLA Handbook (April 2016)* A four-in-one guide for writing in the modes -- a rhetoric, research guide, reader, and handbook At every step of the writing process, Strategies for Successful Writing supports students as they learn to compose in the rhetorical modes. Over 100 short examples demonstrate writing concepts and strategies, so that they can recognize them more easily in the longer reading selections and apply them in their own compositions. Instruction is kept brief and to the point, so that students spend more time writing and less time reading about writing. Perfect for those seeking support for participating in academic discourse for the first time, this four-in-one guide may be the only text students will need for the composition course. * The 8th Edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the -increasing mobility of texts, - MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following.

Your future as a writer is in your hands. Whether you are a newcomer or an accomplished professional, a novelist, story writer, or a writer of nonfiction, you will find this book a wealth of immediately useful guidance not available anywhere else. As Sol Stein, renowned editor, author, and instructor, explains, "This is not a book of theory. It is a book of useable solutions-- how to fix writing that is flawed, how to improve writing that is good, how to create interesting writing in the first place." You will find one of the great unspoken secrets of craftsmanship in Chapter 5, called "Markers: The Key to Swift Characterization." In Chapter 7, Stein reveals for he first time in print the wonderful system for creating instant conflict developed in the Playwrights Group of the Actors Studio, of which he was a founder. In "Secrets of Good Dialogue," the premier teacher of dialogue gives you the instantly useable techniques that not only make verbal exchanges exciting but that move the story forward immediately. You won't need to struggle with flashbacks or background material after you've read Chapter 14, which shows you how to bring background into the foreground. Writers of both fiction and nonfiction will relish the amphetamines for speeding up pace, and the many ways to liposuction flab, as well as how to tap originality and recognize what successful titles have in common. You'll discover literary values that enhance writing, providing depth and resonance. You'll bless the day you read Chapters 32 and 33 and discover why revising by starting at page one can be a serious mistake, and how to revise without growing cold on your manuscript. In the pages of this book, nonfiction writers will find a passport to the new revolution in journalism and a guide to using the techniques of fiction to enhance nonfiction. Fresh, useful, informative, and fun to read and reread, Stein on Writing is a book you will mark up, dog-ear, and cherish.

Part memoir, part master class by one of the bestselling authors of all time, this superb volume is a revealing and practical view of the writer's craft, comprising the basic tools of the trade every writer must have. King's advice is grounded in the vivid memories from childhood through his emergence as a writer, from his struggling early career to his widely reported, near-fatal accident in 1999 - and how the inextricable link between writing and living spurred his recovery. There is a reason why Stephen King is one of the bestselling writers in the world, ever. Described in the Guardian as 'the most remarkable storyteller in modern American literature', Stephen King writes books that draw you in and are impossible to put down.

Potential energy surface calculations have predicted the existence of triaxial strongly deformed (TSD) nuclei with N~94 and Z~72. Subsequent calculations indicated that 164, 166Hf would be the most favorable nuclei in the region for finding TSD structures. But experimental discoveries of TSD bands only have been reported in 161, 163, 164, 165, 167 Lu nuclei with the wobbling mode, a unique signature of nuclei with stable triaxiality. And experimental investigation produced negative results on the two Hf isotopes. Later investigations in 168, 173−175Hf show existence of strongly-deformed bands, but none have been confirmed as TSD structures. These results motivated an extension of the search for TSD bands in the region to heavier Hf-isotopes like 171, 172Hf. A Gammasphere experiment was carried out to search for triaxial strongly deformed (TSD) structures in 171, 172Hf. Three strongly deformed bands in 172Hf and one in 171Hf were identified through 48Ca (128Te, xn) reactions. Linking transitions were established for the band in 171Hf and, consequently, its excitation energies and spins (up to 111/2 [lamda]) were firmly established. However, none of the 172Hf sequences was linked to known structures. Experimental evidence of triaxiality was not observed in these bands. Theoretical investigations within cranked-shell models and Cranked Relativistic Mean-Field (CRMF) Calculations have been performed. Cranking calculations with the Ultimate Cranker suggest that the band in 171Hf and two TSD candidates in 170Hf and 175Hf are built upon proton (i13/2h9/2) configurations, associated with near-prolate shapes and deformations enhanced with respect to the normal deformed bands. CRMF calculations suggest that band 2 in 175Hf has most likely a near-prolate superdeformed shape involving the [pi]i13/ 2 [times][upsilon]j15/ 2 high-j intruder orbitals. It is quite likely that the bands in 172Hf are similar in character to this band. In this experiment six normal deformed bands in 171Hf and five in 172Hf were identified, also known low spin structures have been extended considerably. Linking transitions to known low spin structures were well established for these five bands of 171Hf but none of 172Hf. The spin and parity determinations of these rotational bands have been performed based on DCO ratio and intensity measurement. The suggested configurations of these structures also have been proposed.
