Subject: Re: [DISABILITY-RESEARCH] American DPOs

 

The Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) has a useful member list (N.B. most of these are DPOs but some are not): http://www.c-c-d.org/rubriques.php?rub=organization.php 

 

As others said before, there are probably thousands of DPOs in the U.S. and no centralized database. Any other lists or relevant resources would be helpful so thanks for sharing!

Probably there are hundreds, if not thousands, but no central directory.

 

There are People First chapters in many states and local areas, which are self-advocacy organizations led by and for people with I/DD. There are ADAPT chapters in many cities and other localities as well, which have historically been primarily people with physical disabilities. There are chapters of the Autistic Self Advocacy Network, the National Federation of the Blind, the American Council of the Blind, and the National Association of the Deaf in many states. There are also national organizations like DREAM (Disability Rights Education, Activism, and Mentoring), National Black Deaf Advocates, Coalición Nacional de Personas con Discapacidades, Harriet Tubman Collective, Asian Pacific Islanders with Disabilities, Self Advocates Becoming Empowered, and of course, many others

Hi,

Is there a list of the UK ones that you speak of?

I would also be interested in the USA groups and contact details if anyone has them.

Subject: American DPOs

Here in the UK we have about 400 Disabled People's Organisations (DPOs), most of which were created by, employ and are run by disabled people. Do you have such organisations in America, and if so where might I get an up to date list of these organisations with their email contact details?
Many thanks

Disabled Peoples international Disability Promotion, Community Awareness, Media Reporting, Fund Raising, Marketing & Communication strategies Policy Statement 1. Introduction 1.1 Disabled Peoples International (DPI) is a human rights organization and the peak international cross disability organization of people with disability. 1.2 This Policy Statement reflects our concern that fundraising, community education, awareness campaigns, media reporting, health campaigns, marketing & communications strategies around the world, have not always depicted people with disability in a manner that is positive, dignified and respectful. Too often, these practices have focused on the negative impact in peoples lives, rather than the restrictive environmental and social barriers people face. 1.3 We require all agencies, organizations, media and governments to uphold the principles of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) to overcome discrimination and negative cultural and ethnic beliefs and practices, and educate the community by providing information and depicting people with disabilities in a manner which promotes positive images by focusing on opportunity, independence, empowerment, achievement and respecting human rights. 1.4 We affirm that as mandated in the CRPD, all people with disabilities have the same rights as others to be regarded with utmost respect and treated with dignity. 2. Principles 2.1 People with disabilities are individuals who have the same rights as other people and who may have specific needs as a result of their disability and who may not have the resources to meet their own needs. Governments at all levels, National, State and Local must ensure the allocation of resources to address the specific needs of people with disabilities regardless of age, race, sexuality or religion. 2.2 The human rights and fundamental freedoms of all people with disabilities are sacred and must not be compromised in any way in fundraising, media reporting, marketing or community education projects. These rights include: a. the right to community understanding and acceptance of their individual situation and differences as part of human diversity. The United Nations, governments and non-governmental organizations, including disability, academic, scientific and medical organizations, must use the human rights model of disability, abandoning all concepts of the medical or charity models. b. the right to be recognized and valued as equal members of the community, c. the right to have their contributions to society recognized and valued, and d. the right of informed consent regarding involvement in any fundraising, marketing or community education project. 3. Policy Actions 3.1 These principles should govern the practices of any organization reporting news, raising awareness, providing services or raising funds for people with disability around the world. As the peak cross disability international organization of people with disability, DPI calls upon organisations, agencies, media and governments, to ensure that news reporting, fundraising or community education undertaken about people with disability accords with the above principles. 3.2 We call upon individuals, employees, staff, organisations, agencies and media to; a. monitor the news reporting, awareness campaigns, fundraising practices and policies of agencies, organisations, governments and media and if they break these principles to publicly speak out against these practices. 3.3 We call upon agencies, organisations, governments and media to: a. ensure that their media reporting, awareness campaigns and/or fundraising practices honor the principles set out in this statement and the CRPD. b. ensure that all practices are age appropriate to the people with disability directly affected. Where an agency or organization provides services to, or represents a wide age range their general portrayal of people with disability must be balanced to reflect positive images of all those people with disability (i.e. images of children should only be used to the percentage they are provided services and not be used to represent adults). c. ensure photographic exhibitions do not dwell on tragedy and are balanced with positive images of how people with disabilities are contributing to their communities. d. ensure people with disabilities are involved in every aspect of these activities as equal partners. e. ensure only people with disabilities be used to portray people with disabilities in these events. f. enable and resource consumer reference groups that will monitor the development and implementation of fundraising, community awareness, media campaigns by agencies and government according to this policy. g. ensure that "competition" between agencies to secure what they see as an appropriate "slice of the cake" is not detrimental to those whose needs are to be served, or to other agencies working in similar or related areas. h. prepare and present all fundraising, promotional or educational material in such a way that it reinforces full human rights and promotes the basic truth that "people with disability regardless of cultural background are individuals with the same right to dignity, respect and opportunity as all other members of society". i. ensure all fundraising, promotional, educational and media material reinforces the immense cultural and linguistic diversity of people with disability around the world. j. implement an accessible, informed consent strategy that enables individuals, families or groups to make an informed decision about their involvement in each specific project. k. recognize and address the need to break down the myths, misconceptions and negative images regarding people with disability held by the community. l. ensure strategies are in place for people using minority languages to reflect positive images of people with disability. m. accept the challenge to enhance community perceptions of people with disability and their contribution to society. n. avoid negative, pitiful and patronizing wording, etc. o. ensure consultations and prior consent are made with the peak disability body via DPI and our National Assemblies regarding correct description of the disability. p. provide appropriate and accessible format of promotional or educational materials relating to persons with disabilities. q.

Disability Media Studies articulates the formation of a new field of study, based in the rich traditions of media, cultural, and disability studies. Necessarily interdisciplinary and diverse, this collection weaves together work from scholars from a variety of disciplinary homes, into a broader conversation about exploring media artifacts in relation to disability.

The volume concludes with afterwords from two different perspectives on the field—one by disability scholar Rachel Adams, the other by media scholars Mara Mills and Jonathan Sterne—that reflect upon the collection, the ongoing conversations, and the future of disability media studies.  

Disability Media Studies is a crucial text for those interested in this flourishing field, and will pave the way for a greater understanding of disability media studies and its critical concepts and conversations.

Regards Marion EWSWIRE: Monday, November 20, 2017, Tek Talk will present Dr Marion Hersh, Senior Lecturer (Biomedical Engineering), University of Glasgow, School of Engineering and Oliver Ozioko a PH.D candidate - 5 PM Pacific time - www.accessibleworld.org , Pat Price Tek Talk Training Room http://conference321.com/masteradmin/room.asp?id=rsc9613dc89eb2 Dr. Marion Hersh is the instructor for Oliver Ozioko, a PH.D candidate who developed a "text-to-Braille" device that will instantly turn the printed material into Braille. This will allow students or employees and many others to receive handouts or other printed material and have it available for their purpose allowing them to read or have access to printed materials at the same time as their sighted peers. Dr. Marion Hersh's bio follows demonstrating her involvement with the blind, deafblind and persons with autism: Dr Marion Hersh is an associate professor at the University of Glasgow in Scotland. Their first degree was in mathematics and Their doctorate in control engineering. They have been working in the area of assistive technology for about the last 15 years. They carried out a research project on mobility for blind people with support of a Leverhulme Research Fellowship. This included interviews with 300 blind, partially sighted and deafblind people in 10 different countries, investigation of different travel technologies and visits to their developers and interviews with orientation and mobility trainers. Last year during a visit to Brazil Marion participated in the evaluation of an electronic cane developed specifically for Brazil and the evaluation of different designs of audio traffic lights. Marion is a main co-author and co-editor of two books on assistive technology published by Springer Verlag.

EWSWIRE: Monday, November 20, 2017, Tek Talk will present Dr Marion Hersh,
Senior Lecturer (Biomedical Engineering), University of Glasgow, School of
Engineering and 


Oliver Ozioko a PH.D candidate - 5 PM Pacific time - 


www.accessibleworld.org , Pat Price Tek Talk Training Room


 

http://conference321.com/masteradmin/room.asp?id=rsc9613dc89eb2

 

Dr. Marion Hersh is the instructor for Oliver Ozioko, a PH.D candidate who
developed a "text-to-Braille" device that will instantly turn the printed
material into Braille. This will allow students or employees and many others
to receive handouts or other printed material and have it available for
their purpose allowing them to read or have access to printed materials at
the same time as their sighted peers.

 

Dr. Marion Hersh's bio follows demonstrating her involvement with the blind,
deafblind and persons with autism:

 

Dr Marion Hersh is an associate professor at the University of Glasgow in
Scotland.  Their first degree was in mathematics and Their doctorate in
control engineering.  They have been working in the area of assistive
technology for about the last 15 years.  They carried out a research project
on mobility for blind people with support of a Leverhulme Research
Fellowship.  This included interviews with 300 blind, partially sighted and
deafblind people in 10 different countries, investigation of different
travel technologies and visits to their developers and interviews with
orientation and mobility trainers.  Last year during a visit to Brazil
Marion participated in the evaluation of an electronic cane developed
specifically for Brazil and the evaluation of different designs of audio
traffic lights.

 

Marion is a main co-author and co-editor of two books on assistive
technology published by Springer Verlag.  They organized a series of
conferences on assistive technology for people with vision and hearing
impairments in different countries in Europe, featuring bursaries and
training for young and disabled researchers.  They are organizing a
conference next year in Brazil on Accessible infrastructures for the
mobility and education of blind people.  

 

Marion is also leading the Alternative research project A society fit for
autistics: overcoming the barriers, challenging stereotypes and enabling
autistics to take their place in the world.  All the partners, including
Marion, are autistic, and it is investigating barriers and looking for
solutions from an autistic perspective.  Marion has been organizing
workshops in Poland on autism and communication for teachers and parents of
autistic children together with a close Polish blind friend, Hania.  With
Hania's help, a set of pins and a wooden box, they have learnt the Braille
alphabet (including additional Polish letters), but need to find time for
more practice in order to learn to read fluently.

Jacques Derrida wrote: Today, one often says body with the same degree of credulousness or dogmatism, at best with the same faith as, previously, one used to speak of soul. Against such credulousness and dogmatism, this issue of parallax invites papers exploring how contemporary critical theory can challenge preconceptions on the body and interrogate its limits particularly in relation to intertwined foldings of desire, gender, race and sexuality. In invoking the French term corps rather than its English counterpart (body/bodies) we wish to challenge the assumed familiarity of what a body or bodies are and could be. Generally speaking, this gesture aims to suggest that the Derridean problematization of textuality and (un)translatability might challenge and re-configure the conventional dichotomy between understandings of the body either as physical/material or as socio-culturally constructed. Textuality points to the notion that material embodiments remain open to future interpretations, future translations open to the event of future readings. In particular, we aim to enable novel encounters with corps by emphasising the problem of (un)countability: the French corps is both plural and singular. This linguistic ambivalence thus raises the problems of undecidability and supplementarity in the process of signification and their theoretical, ethical, and political implications, which Derrida famously explored through notions such as diffrance dissemination or pharmakon. In addition to Derridas work, the problematization of corps (un)countability seeks to encourage interventions mobilizing the work of thinkers whoalongside Derridahave interrogated this problem in relation to postcolonial critique and critical race theory (such as Saidiya Hartman, Mark Sanders and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak) and have argued for sexes and sexualities which are not determined by univocal phallocentric logic (such as Hlne Cixous, Elisabeth Grosz and Paul B. Preciado), or have navigated their interrogations towards the intertwining genesis, evolutions and co-habitations of humans and non-humans (such as Rosi Braidotti, Donna Haraway and Vicki Kirby). We also invite contributions exploring corps by opening it/them to its/their own (un)translatability. In this respect, we are interested in the ways in which various intellectual, linguistic and political traditions engage with this problem, but also in contributions engaging with questions opened through this words disseminal polysemy. This may include interrogating corps in relation to divisions and units (of bodies) associated together or acting in formation towards a common direction (called corps in English), thus pointing to the problematics of combatting bodies and/or forming alliances. It may also lead to questions related to what has been left behind, the remains, residues or remainders, or, as it is named in English, corpse(s) which implies an opening to the problematic of finitude, memory, survival, but also to theorizing corps in relation to futurity, afterlife, and to the (im)possibility of new and different lives. We welcome proposals within but not limited to questions such as: Representations of the body Different bodies/ bodies of diffrance Sexed bodies - deconstructing sex and sexuality Singular and/or plural embodiments Collective or communal bodies Genes, genres and genealogies Bodies in combat Translating corps Technologies of the body, prostheticity and supplementarity (Un)countable and (un)accountable bodies Remainders, remains, bodily traces Pharmacologies of the body Deconstructive biopolitics By initiating such explorations of corps, this issue of parallax seeks to intervene in the current scholarship of feminist, queer and postcolonial theory, transgender studies, bio-medical humanities, critical science studies, deconstruction, posthumanism, literature and visual art studies.

It may also lead to questions related to what has been left behind, the remains, residues or remainders, or, as it is named in English, corpse(s) which implies an opening to the problematic of finitude, memory, survival, but also to theorizing corps in relation to futurity, afterlife, and to the (im)possibility of new and different lives. We welcome proposals within but not limited to questions such as:

 

       Representations of the body

       Different bodies/ bodies of diffrance

       Sexed bodies - deconstructing sex and sexuality

       Singular and/or plural embodiments

       Collective or communal bodies

       Genes, genres and genealogies

       Bodies in combat

       Translating corps

       Technologies of the body, prostheticity and supplementarity

       (Un)countable and (un)accountable bodies

       Remainders, remains, bodily traces

       Pharmacologies of the body

       Deconstructive biopolitics

 

By initiating such explorations of corps, this issue of parallax seeks to intervene in the current scholarship of feminist, queer and postcolonial theory, transgender studies, bio-medical humanities, critical science studies, deconstruction, posthumanism, literature and visual art studies.

 Bursary application deadlines: 10 December 2017 Deadline for submitting presentations: 1 May 2018 
 IFTR 2018 conference, Theatre and Migration, frames migration as “an act—a form of being/doing”, “a relational category”, “a process of moving from one point to the other that necessitates meandering, wandering, changing of pace, transformation, negotiation, and adaptation”. It approaches the notion as it relates both to the making of the Other on stage, and in everyday life, and to the moving together of bodies, animals and things as well as to the diffusion of thoughts, customs and forms. IFTR’s Performance and Disability Working Group invites contributions that explore the meanings and implications of these approaches to and articulations of migration within a disability, theatre and performance context. From the representational traditions of constructing the disabled body as the ultimate Other and locating it to the margins of margins to the playfulness, creativity and unruliness of disability cultures and coalitionary politics of disability communities; from the way disabled people change pace, crip time, and negotiate their movements and selves in relation to an ableist world to the performative acts of migration that form new collectivities on and off stage, the intermingling of disability, migration and performance opens up a hole set of questions, tensions and possibilities. IFTR Performance and Disability Working Group invites academic papers, practice-led work, artistic expressions and explorations that explore these entanglements from a creative and a critical lens. Possible topics include but are not limited to: • Disability, chronic illness, pain, mental health, theatre and accessibility • Disabling geographies, enabling performance practices • Mobilities and immobilities • Performing borders and “unfit” bodies • Disability, migrating histories and narratives • Disability, belonging, state and citizenship • Migration, theories of intersectionality, and queer/crip politics • Disability, political theatre and migration • Ethics of theatre and agency in relation to disability • Disability, and the remaking of performance spaces and temporalities • Disability, theatre, migration & spectatorship • Migrating audiences • Disability, performing communities, and displacement • Disability, performance and politics of ‘inclusion’ • Disability, digital world, migration and mediated performances • Ecologies of disability, theatre and migration Deadline for abstract submission: January 15th 2018 Abstract submission via Cambridge Core. Abstracts for contributions of any format (max. 300 words) along with a short bio of (max. 200 words) should be submitted through the Cambridge Core website by 15 January 2018.

MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="----=_Part_4674523_786134904.1511861289806" Message-ID: <[log in to unmask]> ------=_Part_4674523_786134904.1511861289806 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8 Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable I am proud to announce the latest book in the Routledge Interdisciplinary Disability Studies Series, A Feminist Ethnography of Secure Wards for Women with Learning Disabilities: Locked Away By Rebecca Fish. What is life like for women with learning disabilities detained in a secure unit? This book presents a unique ethnographic study conducted in a contemporary institution in England. Rebecca Fish takes an interdisciplinary approach, drawing on both the social model of disability and intersectional feminist methodology, to explore the reasons why the women were placed in the unit, as well their experiences of day-to-day life as played out through relationships with staff and other residents. She raises important questions about the purpose of such units and the services they offer. Through making the women’s voices heard, this book presents their experiences and unique perspectives on topics such as seclusion, restraint, and resistance. Exploring how the ever present power disparity works to regulate women’s behaviour, the book shows how institutional responses replicate women’s bad experiences from the past, and how women’s responses are seen as pathological. It demonstrates that women are not passive recipients of care, but shape their own identity and futures, sometimes by resisting the norms expected of them (within allowed limits) and sometimes by transgressing the rules.  These insights thus challenge traditional institutional accounts of gender, learning disability and deviance and highlight areas for reform in policy, practice, methodology, and social theory. It can be purchased via the following internet link: https://www.routledge.com/A-Feminist-Ethnography-of-Secure-Wards-for-Women-with-Learning-Disabilities/Fish/p/book/9781138088269 Please consider buying this book, or at least ordering it for your library. I think it is a really important contribution to Disability Studies - equivalent of Goffman's Asylum, but informed by feminist theory and principles, and applied to the experiences of people with learning disabilities in locked wards.  I hope it is widely read and included in many disability studies courses, as well as feminist courses, ethnography, sociology, and other fields. This book is the latest in the Series, which can be found at: https://www.routledge.com/Interdisciplinary-Disability-Studies/book-series/ASHSER1401 FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DO NOT FOLLOW THE SERIES, OTHER RECENT TITLES IN THE SERIES INCLUDE: 1. A Sociological Approach to Acquired Brain Injury and Identity By Jonathan Harvey Inspired by the author’s personal experience of sustaining acquired brain injury (ABI), this path-breaking book explores the (re)construction of identity after ABI. It offers a way of understanding ABI through a social scientific lens, promoting an understanding that is generated through close engagement with the lives and experiences of ABI survivors. The author follows the everyday experiences of six male survivors and critically investigates their identity (re)construction after their ABI. As well as demonstrating identity (re)construction after ABI, the experiences of the participants allow the reader to investigate neurological rehabilitation from their perspective. This book suggests that rehabilitation after ABI is often a continual process that extends beyond the formal, medically prescribed period. It also shows that identity after ABI is often (re)constructed in an unpredictable way; a way that emphasises the importance of reciprocal support and the uncertainty of future life. This book can be purchased via the following link: https://www.routledge.com/A-Sociological-Approach-to-Acquired-Brain-Injury-and-Identity/Harvey/p/book/9781472474476 -------- 2 .DISABILITY AND POSTSOCIALISM BY TEODOR MLADENOV In the decades following the collapse of state socialism at the end of 1980s, disabled people in Central and Eastern Europe endured economic marginalisation, cultural devaluation and political disempowerment. Some of the mechanisms producing these injustices were inherited from state socialism, while others emerged with postsocialist neoliberalisation. State socialism promised social security guaranteed by the public, and postsocialist neoliberalisation promised independent living underpinned by the market. This book argues that both promises failed as far as disabled people were concerned, drawing on a wide range of scholarly reports and analyses, policy documents, legislation, and historical accounts, as well as on disability studies and social justice theory. Besides differences, the book also illuminates continuities between state socialism and postsocialist capitalism, providing on this basis a more general and historically grounded critique of contemporary neoliberalisation and its impact on individual and collective life.

JEFFRESS Research has long substantiated the fact that living with a disability creates significant and complex challenges to identity negotiation, the practice of communication, and the development of interpersonal relationships. Furthermore, individuals without disabilities often lack the knowledge and tools to experience self-efficacy in communicating with their differently-abled peers. So how do these challenges translate to the incorporation of disability studies in a classroom context and the need to foster an inclusive environment for differently-abled students? Bringing together a range of perspectives from communication and disability studies scholars, this collection provides a theoretical foundation along with practical solutions for the inclusion of disability studies within the everyday curriculum. It examines a variety of aspects of communication studies including interpersonal, intercultural, health, political and business communication as well as ethics, gender and public speaking, offering case study examples and pedagogical strategies as to the best way to approach the subject of disability in education.

The book focuses particularly on the ways disabled people give, and are given, meaning and value in relation to ethical rural considerations of place, physical strength, productivity and social reciprocity. A range of different perspectives to the issues of living rurally with a disability inform this work. It includes the lived experience of people with disabilities through the use of life history methodologies, rich qualitative accounts and theoretical perspectives. It goes beyond conventional notions of rurality, grounding its analysis in a range of disability spaces and places and including the work of disability sociologists, geographers, cultural theorists and policy analysts. This interdisciplinary focus reveals the contradictory and competing relations of rurality for disabled people and the resultant impacts and effects upon disabled people and their communities materially, discursively and symbolically.

I am proud to announce the latest book in the Routledge Interdisciplinary Disability Studies Series, A Feminist Ethnography of Secure Wards for Women with Learning Disabilities: Locked Away By Rebecca Fish.

What is life like for women with learning disabilities detained in a secure unit? This book presents a unique ethnographic study conducted in a contemporary institution in England.

Rebecca Fish takes an interdisciplinary approach, drawing on both the social model of disability and intersectional feminist methodology, to explore the reasons why the women were placed in the unit, as well their experiences of day-to-day life as played out through relationships with staff and other residents. She raises important questions about the purpose of such units and the services they offer.

Through making the women’s voices heard, this book presents their experiences and unique perspectives on topics such as seclusion, restraint, and resistance. Exploring how the ever present power disparity works to regulate women’s behaviour, the book shows how institutional responses replicate women’s bad experiences from the past, and how women’s responses are seen as pathological. It demonstrates that women are not passive recipients of care, but shape their own identity and futures, sometimes by resisting the norms expected of them (within allowed limits) and sometimes by transgressing the rules.  These insights thus challenge traditional institutional accounts of gender, learning disability and deviance and highlight areas for reform in policy, practice, methodology, and social theory.

https://www.routledge.com/A-Feminist-Ethnography-of-Secure-Wards-for-Women-with-Learning-Disabilities/Fish/p/book/9781138088269

Please consider buying this book, or at least ordering it for your library. I think it is a really important contribution to Disability Studies - equivalent of Goffman's Asylum, but informed by feminist theory and principles, and applied to the experiences of people with learning disabilities in locked wards.  I hope it is widely read and included in many disability studies courses, as well as feminist courses, ethnography, sociology, and other fields.

This book is the latest in the Series, which can be found at:

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DO NOT FOLLOW THE SERIES, OTHER RECENT TITLES IN THE SERIES INCLUDE:

1. A Sociological Approach to Acquired Brain Injury and Identity By Jonathan Harvey

Inspired by the author’s personal experience of sustaining acquired brain injury (ABI), this path-breaking book explores the (re)construction of identity after ABI. It offers a way of understanding ABI through a social scientific lens, promoting an understanding that is generated through close engagement with the lives and experiences of ABI survivors. The author follows the everyday experiences of six male survivors and critically investigates their identity (re)construction after their ABI. As well as demonstrating identity (re)construction after ABI, the experiences of the participants allow the reader to investigate neurological rehabilitation from their perspective. This book suggests that rehabilitation after ABI is often a continual process that extends beyond the formal, medically prescribed period. It also shows that identity after ABI is often (re)constructed in an unpredictable way; a way that emphasises the importance of reciprocal support and the uncertainty of future life.

2 .DISABILITY AND POSTSOCIALISM BY TEODOR MLADENOV

In the decades following the collapse of state socialism at the end of 1980s, disabled people in Central and Eastern Europe endured economic marginalisation, cultural devaluation and political disempowerment. Some of the mechanisms producing these injustices were inherited from state socialism, while others emerged with postsocialist neoliberalisation. State socialism promised social security guaranteed by the public, and postsocialist neoliberalisation promised independent living underpinned by the market. This book argues that both promises failed as far as disabled people were concerned, drawing on a wide range of scholarly reports and analyses, policy documents, legislation, and historical accounts, as well as on disability studies and social justice theory. Besides differences, the book also illuminates continuities between state socialism and postsocialist capitalism, providing on this basis a more general and historically grounded critique of contemporary neoliberalisation and its impact on individual and collective life.
