Being Different Together: Case Studies on Diversity Interventions in Some South African Organisation
There are few contexts where people are not confronted by difference in the workplace, in organisations and public spaces, and as an aspect of the general body politic. The challenge, therefore, is how to value what different groups may bring to the collective while, at the same time, maintaining cohesive societies. Contemporary South Africa is no exception in facing realities such as these although the specific contours that the challenges take are obviously shaped by South Africa's history, it

What is the difference between a simile and metaphor? Answering that question is the goal of this student-created video. Metaphors are direct comparisons; similes use like or as to make the comparison. Shakespeare's famous metaphor," All the world is a stage," is used as an example. (01:24)
Students analyze Shakespeare's Hamlet in a creative way in this selection. The format is that of a news program with "live" action coverage and an interview with a friend. ( 4:39)

The aim of this material is to introduce the student to two notions of convergence for sequences of real-valued functions. The notion of pointwise convergence is relatively straightforward, but the notion of uniform convergence is more subtle. Uniform convergence is explained in terms of closed function balls and the new notion of sets absorbing sequences. The differences between the two types of convergence are illustrated with several examples. Some standard facts are also discussed: a unif
