Applying the Kaizen in Africa by Book Summary:

At present, how to develop industries is a burning issue in Africa, where population growth remains high and economic development has thus far failed to provide sufficient jobs for many, especially young people and women. The creation of productive jobs through industrial development ought to be a central issue in steering economic activity across the continent. The authors of this book, consisting of two development economists and five practitioners, argue that the adoption of Kaizen management practices, which originated in Japan and have become widely used by manufacturers in advanced and emerging economies, is decisively the most effective first step for industrial development in Africa. This open access book discusses what Kaizen management is, why it is applicable to Africa, and why it can provide Africa with a springboard for sustainable economic growth and employment generation.

Identifying Patterns of Emotional and Behavioural Problems in Preschool children by Berit M. Gustafsson Book Summary:

Mental health problems often debut in early childhood and may last throughout adulthood, thereby making early detection and intervention especially important. The overarching aim of the present thesis was to identify patterns of emotional and behavioural problems indicating mental health problems in preschool children. To facilitate the detection of such problems early on, one available screening instrument Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ), was validated. The development and interaction of externalising problems in preschool children were studied over time. Functioning and behaviour and their relations to protective and risk indicators in both environmental and personal characteristics were explored. The long-term goal was to increase knowledge about early identification of emotional and behavioural problems in preschool children in order to facilitate early intervention. In Study I (n=690), the subscales Hyperactivity and Conduct Problems were shown to be valid for children in the age group 1–3 years. A reasonable level of validity was found for the age group 4–5 years when using the original SDQ four-factor solution. The preschool teachers considered most of the SDQ items relevant and possible to rate. Based on the results of Study II (n=815), a score of ?12 on the SDQ Total Problems Scale is recommended as a cut-off for Swedish preschool children. There were significant differences between boys and girls on all subscales except for the Emotional subscale. The Swedish norms for SDQ are to a large extent similar to findings from other European countries. Study III (n=195) showed that preschool children’s conduct problems decrease over time. Children exhibiting more initial hyperactivity (at year 1) have less reduction in conduct problems over time, i.e. the more hyperactivity early in life, the more conduct problems at year 3. In Study IV (n=197), children high in engagement and social interaction function well over time, even in the presence of hyperactivity, while children with low engagement and interaction alone or in combination with hyperactivity and conduct problems continue to have problems. Stability was related to the existence of a larger number of protective or risk indicators respectively. Taken together, this thesis has shown that the SDQ can be used to identify preschool children at risk of developing mental health problems later in life.

System studies of biogas production by Emma Lindkvist Book Summary:

Biogas has the potential to be part of the transition towards a more sustainable energy system. Biogas is a renewable energy source and can play an important role in modern waste management systems. Biogas production can also help recirculate nutrients back to farmland. Besides all this, biogas is a locally produced energy source with the potential to increase global resource efficiency, since it can lead to more value and less waste, as well as decreased negative environmental effects. However, biogas production systems are complex, including different substrates, different applications for biogas and digestate, and different technology solutions for digestion, pre-treatment and for upgrading the raw gas. To increase the development of biogas production systems, knowledge sharing is a key factor. To increase this knowledge sharing, comprehensible analysis and comparisons of biogas production systems are necessary. Thus, studies are needed to verify the resource efficiency of biogas production systems from different perspectives. The aim of this thesis is to perform a systems analysis of biogas production systems and to explore how to analyse and compare biogas production systems. An additional aim is to study biogas production systems from a systems perspective, with a focus on environment, energy and economy. Studying biogas production systems from different system levels, as well as from different approaches, is beneficial because it results in deeper knowledge of biogas systems and greater opportunities to identify synergies. Systems studies of biogas are important, since biogas systems are often complex and integrated with other systems. In this thesis, biogas systems analyses are performed at different levels. In the widest system study, classifications of different biogas plants are analysed and classifications in different European countries are compared, with the prospect of paving the way for a new common classification for biogas plants in Europe. Today, classifications vary between countries, and hence comparisons of plants in different countries are difficult. In the narrowest system study, a new methodology for analysing energy demand at different biogas production plants has been developed. The aim was to develop a methodology that is applicable for all kinds of biogas plants with energy inputs. The methodology describes the process of analysing energy demand and allocating energy to sub-processes and unit processes. Further, an approach for assessing the resource efficiency of different treatment options for organic waste was designed. The approach includes environmental, economic and energy perspectives, and was applied to five different regions with several food manufacturing companies. A study of treatment options for organic waste from a single food company was also conducted. The results showed that biogas production is a resource-efficient way to treat waste from the food industry. The approach enables a wider analysis of biogas systems, and the results from the applications show the complexity of assessing resource efficiency. It is also shown that it is important to understand that the resource efficiency of a system is always in relation to the substituted system. In this thesis, three different approaches to analysing biogas production systems are presented: categorization, resource efficiency analysis and energy demand analysis. These approaches all contribute to the understanding of biogas systems and can help, in different ways, to increase knowledge about biogas systems in the world. If knowledge about different biogas systems can be easily disseminated, more of the unused potential of biogas production may be realized, and hence more fossil fuels can be replaced within the energy system. Biogas har potentialen att vara en del av övergången till ett mer hållbart energisystem. Biogas är en förnybar energikälla som kan spela en viktig roll i moderna avfallshanteringssystem. Produktion av biogas kan även hjälpa till att återcirkulera näringsämnen tillbaka till jordbruksmark. Förutom allt detta är biogas en lokalt producerad energikälla med potential att öka resurseffektiviteten i världen, eftersom det kan leda till ökat värde och mindre avfall samt minskade negativa miljöeffekter. Dock är biogasproduktionssystem komplexa, inklusive exempelvis olika substrat, användning för biogasen och rötresterna, olika tekniska lösningar för rötresterna såväl som förbehandling av substrat och uppgradering av rågas. För att öka utvecklingen av biogasproduktionssystem är kunskapsdelning en nyckelfaktor. För att öka kunskapsdelningen är tydliga analyser och jämförelser av biogasproduktionssystem nödvändiga. Därför behövs studier för att verifiera resurseffektiviteten för biogasproduktionssystem från olika perspektiv. Syftet med denna avhandling är att utföra systemanalyser av biogasproduktionssystem och att undersöka hur man analyserar och jämför biogasproduktionssystem. Vidare är syftet också att studera biogasproduktionssystem ur ett systemperspektiv med fokus på miljö, energi och ekonomi. Det är fördelaktigt att studera biogasproduktionssystem på olika systemnivåer och utifrån olika tillvägagångssätt, eftersom kunskapen om biogassystem fördjupas och möjligheterna att hitta synergier ökar. Systemstudier av biogas är viktigt eftersom biogassystem ofta är komplexa och integrerade i andra system. I denna avhandling utförs analyser på olika nivåer av biogassystemen. På den högsta systemnivån analyseras klassificeringar av olika biogasanläggningar. Klassificeringar i olika europeiska länder jämförs, med förhoppningen att bana väg mot en ny, gemensam klassificering för biogasanläggningar i Europa. Idag varierar klassificeringarna mellan länder och därför är jämförelser av anläggningar mellan länder svåra. På den lägsta systemnivån utvecklades en ny metod för analys av energibehov vid olika biogasproduktionsanläggningar. Syftet var att utveckla en metod för alla typer av biogasanläggningar. Metodiken beskriver processen för att analysera energibehov och fördela energin till delprocesser och enhetsprocesser. Vidare utformades en metod för att bedöma resurseffektiviteten hos olika behandlingsalternativ för organiskt avfall. Metoden inkluderar miljö, ekonomi och energi och tillämpades i fem olika regioner med flera livsmedelsindustriföretag. En studie av behandlingsalternativ för organiskt avfall från ett enda livsmedelsföretag genomfördes också. Resultaten visade att biogasproduktion är ett resurseffektivt sätt att behandla avfall från livsmedelsindustrin. Metoden möjliggör en bredare analys av biogassystem och resultaten från tillämpningarna visar komplexiteten i att utvärdera resurseffektiviteten. Det visas också att det är viktigt att förstå att ett systems resurseffektivitet alltid är i förhållande till det substituerade systemet. I denna avhandling presenteras tre olika metoder för analys av biogasproduktionssystem: kategorisering, resurseffektivitetsanalys och energibehovsanalys. Dessa tillvägagångssätt bidrar alla till att förstå biogassystem och kan på olika sätt bidra till att öka kunskapen för biogassystem i världen. Med bra system för att sprida kunskap om olika biogassystem kan mer av den outnyttjade potentialen för biogasproduktion realiseras och därmed kan fler fossila bränslen i energisystemet ersättas, samtidigt som de övriga fördelarna med biogas också kommer samhället till nytta.

On the Shoulders of Giants by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Book Summary:

From 1920 to 1940, the Harlem Renaissance produced a bright beacon of light that paved the way for African-Americans all over the country. The unapologetic writings of W. E. B. Du Bois and Marcus Garvey, the fervent fiction and poetry of Zora Neale Hurston and Langston Hughes, the groundbreaking art of Aaron Douglas and William H. Johnson, and the triumphant music of Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong gave voice and expression to the thoughts and emotions that Jim Crow segregation laws had long sought to stifle. In On the Shoulders of Giants, indomitable basketball star and bestselling author and historian Kareem Abdul-Jabbar invites the reader on an extraordinarily personal journey back to his birthplace, through one of the greatest political, cultural, literary, and artistic movements in our history, revealing the tremendous impact the Harlem Renaissance had on both American culture and his own life. Beginning with the rise of the Harlem Rens as pioneers of professional basketball, Kareem traces the many streams of historical influence that converged to create the man he is today -- the NBA's all-time leading scorer and a veritable African-American icon. Travel deep into the soul of the Renaissance -- to the night clubs, restaurants, basketball games, and fabulous parties that have made footprints in Harlem's history. Meet the athletes, jazz musicians, comedians, actors, politicians, entrepreneurs, and writers who not only inspired Kareem's rise to greatness but an entire nation's. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was born in the midst of a cultural reawakening, carried on the shoulders of athletes trying to prove there was a lot more at stake than a ball game, men and women who made music that could break your heart, and writers and intellectuals who gave voice to not just the ideals of a movement but the raw emotions. Kareem tells what it took to get these revolutionaries to Harlem and how they changed the world. A world that is still riding on the shoulders of giants.

Patrice Lumumba by Georges Nzongola-Ntalaja Book Summary:

Patrice Lumumba was a leader of the independence struggle in what is today the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as well as the country’s first democratically elected prime minister. After a meteoric rise in the colonial civil service and the African political elite, he became a major figure in the decolonization movement of the 1950s. Lumumba’s short tenure as prime minister (1960–1961) was marked by an uncompromising defense of Congolese national interests against pressure from international mining companies and the Western governments that orchestrated his eventual demise. Cold war geopolitical maneuvering and well-coordinated efforts by Lumumba’s domestic adversaries culminated in his assassination at the age of thirty-five, with the support or at least the tacit complicity of the U.S. and Belgian governments, the CIA, and the UN Secretariat. Even decades after Lumumba’s death, his personal integrity and unyielding dedication to the ideals of self-determination, self-reliance, and pan-African solidarity assure him a prominent place among the heroes of the twentieth-century African independence movement and the worldwide African diaspora. Georges Nzongola-Ntalaja’s short and concise book provides a contemporary analysis of Lumumba’s life and work, examining both his strengths and his weaknesses as a political leader. It also surveys the national, continental, and international contexts of Lumumba’s political ascent and his swift elimination by the interests threatened by his ideas and practical reforms.

Even decades after Lumumba’s death, his personal integrity and unyielding dedication to the ideals of self-determination, self-reliance, and pan-African solidarity assure him a prominent place among the heroes of the twentieth-century African independence movement and the worldwide African diaspora. Georges Nzongola-Ntalaja’s short and concise book provides a contemporary analysis of Lumumba’s life and work, examining both his strengths and his weaknesses as a political leader. It also surveys the national, continental, and international contexts of Lumumba’s political ascent and his swift elimination by the interests threatened by his ideas and practical reforms.
