There is little doubt that online technologies have transformed the way business operates in recent years. And in this age of such advanced technology, email is still the most preferred and often most efficient form of communication, but yet regrettably many organizations treat this very important form of business communication casually and lightly. With the average professional sending 40 emails per day and receiving 121, there is definitely a chance to move fast in email communication, thus overlooking fundamental email etiquette rules. This means that you have 40 opportunities to market yourself and your business in those individual emails you send, every single day. A recent study found that the average adult spends approximately 5 hours a day checking email: 3 hours checking work email and 2 hours checking personal email. This time is spent reading and composing hundreds of messages at a very fast pace –obviously leaving a lot of room for error. These errors can lead to missed opportunities or appearing totally unprofessional. You would have experienced many replying to emails late or not at all or even sending replies that do not actually answer the questions being asked. This can cause a potentially damaging effect on the image of the organization, resulting finally in a loss of business. There are basically 3 key entrances to any business: 1. The front door (face- to-face-walk-in-customers or customers solicited by your sales personnel) 2. The telephone and 3. The net. And the chances are that, if either of these are NOT handled properly, you have lost your customer forever! Think of this for a moment: If most of the business coming in is through the net, and if your organization is able to deal professionally with email, then this will most certainly result in your organization having that all important competitive edge. On the other hand, if not handled the right way, then in the very first instance, chances are that you have lost a customer- and it could even be forever. And remember word of mouth travels fast today- thanks to the social media platforms. So this is where the importance of educating your employees can help, thus protecting your company from awkward liability issues as well. By having employees use appropriate, business like language and etiquette in all electronic communications, employers can limit their liability risks and improve the overall effectiveness of the organization, thus resulting in greater returns with a professional image and branding. Therefore, when it comes to any material or correspondence being sent out from your organization, it is of vital importance to convey the right message in the right way- to ensure that this creates the right impression that you are a credible, professional enterprise and one that will be easy and a pleasure to do business with. And remember you only have that one chance to make that first impression which will be invaluable to building trust and confidence. So like any tool or skill, it is important therefore that organizations take the time to provide the right support to ensure and enable staff to effectively integrate the right online tools and skills into their daily work routine, and gain maximum benefit. It is also vital that organizations develop internal policies to guide employees on the correct use of such online communications, to cover issues such as personal use, privacy, monitoring, downloading of content, access by third parties, and illegal use of the internet to avoid any embarrassment or awkward liability issues that can otherwise arise. This little book: ‘The Professional Business Email Etiquette Handbook & Guide’ comes to you at such a crucial time as this, when the world is going through a pandemic and one needs to be all the more sensitive especially with the right etiquette. So I believe that this will immensely help in equipping you and your team with the essential skills and techniques necessary for managing and structuring emails and writing professionally. So here’s to how to Write Right- the Email Way!

The Oxford Handbook of Preservice Music Teacher Education in the United States identifies the critical need for increased cultural engagement in Pre-K-12 music education. Collectively, the handbook's 56 contributors argue that music education benefits all students only if educators activelywork to broaden diversity in the profession and consistently include diverse learning strategies, experiences, and perspectives in the classroom. In this handbook, contributors encourage music education faculty, researchers, and graduate students to take up that challenge.Throughout the handbook, contributors provide a look at ways music teacher educators prepare teachers to enter the music education profession and offer suggestions for ways in which preservice teachers can advocate for and adapt to changes in contemporary school settings. For example, educators canexpand the types of music groups offered to students, from choir to jazz ensemble. Building upon students' available resources, contributors use research-based approaches to identify the ways in which educational methods and practices must transform in order to successfully challenge existing musiceducation boundaries.

Do you need a quick course in formal dining? Not just in basic eating, but you also have to know what to do with that place setting from Titanic?

All students of kendo--the formal art and practice of Japanese swordsmanship--will welcome this manual by an advanced practitioner with a deep understanding of the martial art. The work begins with a history of kendo in Japan, followed by a study of basic equipment and its proper care and use and a detailed description of forms and rules--essential aspects of any martial art. Beginners will find this section particularly helpful because of the close attention paid to fundamental techniques of kendo, including the rare two-sword form (nitô ryû), largely unknown outside of Japan. Each technique is accompanied by clear, easy-to-follow illustrations. The Nihon Kendo Kata and Shiai and Shinpan rules and regulations are useful references for those learning the Kata and participating in matches. The author, who is also a practicing physician, is attentive throughout to injury prevention and safety--concerns often overlooked in martial arts manuals. The elements of kendo philosophy, which can mystify even experienced practitioners, are explained in simple terms to aid understanding. The manual concludes with biographies of Japan's most celebrated swordsmen, an extensive glossary of kendo terms, and a history of kendo in Hawaii, where it has been practiced for more than a century and where some of the world's top practitioners can be found.
