Robert Oppenheimer, the creator of the atomic bomb, a Jew who was also cast out, losing his security clearance by the U. Robert Oppenheimer is a winding, poetic meditation on passion, morality, science, betrayal, and lots of other decidedly un-atomic concepts. Phil Kilbourne portrays Oppenheimer, the physicist who spent the latter half of WWII holed up in Los Alamos, New Mexico, where he led an enormous team of scientists in designing, building, and testing the first atomic bomb. Throughout, Oppenheimer endures the taunting of Lilith Maria Asp , the spooky yet sexy primeval woman said in some Jewish mythology to have come before Eve. Daily headlines certainly proclaim this with cool starkness.

In Sub-Sahara Africa, the sector of informal micro-enterprises IMEs is already employing a large share of the labour force in both urban and rural areas. There are even indications that in the past decade it has been a source of employment and incomes for nine out of every 10 new entrants to the labour market. This study reviews the ways in which the owners and workers of IMEs have acquired the vocational and management skills that they are using in the operation of these ventures. It reviews the contributions of all the different training providers, including public sector training institutes, private sector training providers, and training centres run by NGOs and other non-profit organizations. Its findings confirm the notion that the training efforts of these formal training providers are only to a limited extent relevant for the IME operators, and that many of the poor and other vulnerable groups do not have ready access to these programmes. Informal apprenticeship training presents a number of important advantages: it is practical, hands-on training at an appropriate level of technology, takes place in the real world of work, offers good prospects for post-training employment and is essentially self-financing. The study concludes that there is a major challenge to improve the transfer of relevant skills to IME operators, through both pre-employment training and skills upgrading.

I still have lines etched in my brain. The beauty of Pity the Reader is that you don't have to be an aspiring writer to find Kurt's advice helpful. You just have to be curious about how another human works his whole life to create smart, funny, deep art in the face of trauma. You just have to "be kind.
