Discusses the shortcomings of the so‐called conventional method of appraising development sites at the pre‐purchase stage. Demonstrates how multiple‐outcome simulations, Monte Carlo analysis in particular, can overcome many disadvantages. Illustrates by means of a practical example. Uses the simpler residual valuation, rather than cashflow appraisal. Concludes that the Monte Carlo method gives a much more graphical impression than a deterministic method, and is well worth the effort to appreciate.

Examines one particular case of French chateau development – Chateau Joseph. Considers the sources of capital, the conversion process and how initial cost estimates had to be dramatically revised upwards. Concludes that success in this sort of venture depends on: familiarity with the local laws, assessing values correctly, raising enough finance, and carrying out sufficient market research.
Provides a general guide to the process of appealing against assessments in the 1990 rating list. Describes the form and content of proposals, action by the valuation officer, the six‐month time‐limit, referencing, basis of measurement, inspection, the locality, rental evidence, lease analysis, rent adjustment, negotiation, and the valuation officer. Summarizes that while rental value forms the basis of rating valuation, the valuer′s tone will significantly affect the outcome.
Explains the important features of the new rating system, and how they interface with the major elements retained from the old. Discusses new terminology, hereditament, relevant property, non‐domestic property, and composite hereditament, as well as rateable value, methods of valuation, and alterations to the rating list.

In the last four years, since Volume I of this Bibliography first appeared, there has been an explosion of literature in all the main functional areas of business. This wealth of material poses problems for the researcher in management studies — and, of course, for the librarian: uncovering what has been written in any one area is not an easy task. This volume aims to help the librarian and the researcher overcome some of the immediate problems of identification of material. It is an annotated bibliography of management, drawing on the wide variety of literature produced by MCB University Press. Over the last four years, MCB University Press has produced an extensive range of books and serial publications covering most of the established and many of the developing areas of management. This volume, in conjunction with Volume I, provides a guide to all the material published so far.

The planning and provision of care for older people in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) communities is an increasing challenge to traditional welfare systems. The purpose of this paper is to explore the potential of the newly implemented Care Act 2014 in England for developing an anti-discriminatory approach.
The review draws on existing research and conceptual literature to identify how key provisions of the new act can be interpreted in light of current knowledge.
Overall the provisions of the Care Act lend themselves well to positive interpretation in relation to the needs of older LGBT people and their support networks. A potential tension, however, arises in the locality focus of the legislation that could constrain good practice with geographically dispersed communities. There is also a need to challenge both heteronormative and ageist assumptions that lead to older LGBT people remaining unrecognised.
Applied with imagination and commitment, the provisions of the new act could enable new forms of person-centred care to emerge to support older LGBT people.
Social workers are in a key position to influence how the Care Act is interpreted and applied in practice and can act as change agents for a societal move towards older LGBT people having greater choice and control over their well-being.
This review presents examples of how the provisions of the legislation can be utilised to support positive change for older LGBT people.
BY February most of the parties, which are a gracious feature of modern libraries, are over. They arise from Staff Guilds, which now in most libraries associate the workers, and some of them are on a large scale. We have been represented at only a few of these but there seems to be a great fund of friendliness upon which the modern librarian can draw nowadays. An interesting one was that of the National Central Library Staff which, by a neighbourly arrangement, was held at Chaucer House. A reunion has been held of old and new members of the Croydon Staff Guild and no doubt there were many others. One New Year party was a small but notable dinner at Charing Cross Hotel where the 100th issue of The Library Review was toasted eloquently by the President of the Library Association and amongst the guests were Mr. C. O. G. Douie who was secretary of the Kenyon Committee of the 1927 Library Report and well‐known librarians and journalists. To us it was notable for the assertion by Mr. R. D. Macleod that amongst the young writers were too many who wrote glibly but without that research which good professional writing demanded; but he was sure that where intelligent industry was shown any article resulting would find a place in library journals.

Court decisions, based largely on principles of equal protection and non-discrimination, throw out laws with preferences for open source software, demonstrating that such laws are not only bad public policy, but may also be illegal, and that neutrality and choice in software procurement is the better approach.
