Its main purposes are firstly to equip readers with a strong conceptual understanding of swallowing evaluation and treatment, secondly to provide guidance on the procedure of practical comprehensive dysphagia rehabilitation in real-world settings, and thirdly to update readers on the latest diagnostic and treatment technologies.

Part III addresses treatment options in swallowing rehabilitation, especially exercises based on motor learning. Lastly, Part IV highlights three clinical cases demonstrating clinical approaches in dysphagic patients. Readers will find this text useful both as an initial guide and a reference work for assisting clinicians, allowing them to further expand swallowing assessment and treatment, and facilitating the development of swallowing rehabilitation in real-world settings in education and rehabilitation.

Excerpt: Ladysmith Black Mambazo is a male choral group from South Africa that sings in the vocal styles of isicathamiya and mbube. They rose to worldwide prominence as a result of singing with Paul Simon on his album, Graceland and have won multiple awards, including three Grammy Awards. They were formed by Joseph Shabalala in 1960 and later became one of South Africa's most prolific recording artists, with their releases receiving gold and platinum disc honors. The group has now become a mobile academy, teaching people about South Africa and its culture. Joseph Shabalala formed Ladysmith Black Mambazo because of a series of dreams he had in 1964, in which he heard certain isicathamiya harmonies (isicathamiya being the traditional music of the Zulu people). Following their local success at wedding ceremonies and other gatherings, Shabalala entered them into isicathamiya competitions. The group was described as 'so good'...

Education, Music, and the Lives of Undergraduates

Collegiate A Cappella and the Pursuit of Happiness

The undergraduate years are a special time of life for many students. They are a time for study, yes, but also a time for making independent decisions over what to do beyond formal education. This book is based on a nine-year study of collegiate a cappella - a socio-musical practice that has exploded on college campuses since the 1990s. A defining feature of collegiate a cappella is that it is a student-run leisure activity undertaken by undergraduate students at institutions both large and small, prestigious and lower-status. With rare exceptions, participants are not music majors yet many participants interviewed had previous musical experience both in and out of school settings. Motivations for staying musically involved varied considerably - from those who felt they could not imagine life without a musical outlet to those who joined on a whim. Collegiate a cappella is about much more than singing cover songs. It sustains multiple forms of inequality through its audition practices and its performative enactment of gender and heteronormativity. This book sheds light on how undergraduates conceptualize vocation and avocation within the context of formal education, holding implications for educators at all levels.

The Masquerade When Vincent Falcone leaves for his first assignment in Rome as a priest in training, two unexpected things happen to him. He meets Jack Weldon, also a new priest, from a well-connected Connecticut family who becomes Father Vincent's soul mate and co-conspirator. Vincent discovers a cryptic note that says simply Leopoldville 1931. Those words take him on an adventure to the Democratic Republic of Congo to investigate the unusual message. Along the way he meets Maria and Romero, travels home to comfort his dying mother, meets Obojo in DR Congo who was present in Leopoldville in 1931 and provides valuable information, gets kidnapped upon his return to Rome. He discovers the importance of Leopoldville 1931 from Cardinal Carradine, a frail man who was Vincent's parish priest and molested him when he was ten. Vincent and Jack discover several elderly priests who were in Leopoldville and are being systematically killed off. The rampage stops until the Mastermind returns to Rome, but his goal is to kill the remaining ten priests and make it look accidental to cover up any evidence of Monsignor Jack Dempsey, the first Catholic priest to die from AIDS.
