What do dominos have to do with life-changing decisions? More than you might think. However, choosing the first domino is crucial. If you base every decision on the Word of God, then one good decision will lead to the next; it's a domino effect. But bear in mind that the process also works in reverse. If a person refuses to make Bible-based decisions, it is a negative version of the domino effect - a chain reaction that leads from bad to worse. God has blessed you with the freedom of choice. If you are really writing your life story one day and one decision at a time, then you have the power to determine how your story ends. But everything hinges on tipping the first domino. Make sure it falls in the right direction. Tim Lewis, a graduate of Oklahoma Christian University, has a bachelor's degree in English education and a master's degree in ministry. He served as the preacher/youth minister for the Mt. Vernon Church of Christ in Mt. Vernon, Mo., for eight years before moving to Oklahoma City to begin his work with the North MacArthur congregation in 2004. He and his wife, Tawni, have two daughters, Macy and Callie, and one son, Ryder.

This second volume of plays from award-winning playwright Fin Kennedy features three ensemble plays for large casts of young people aged thirteen to nineteen, each developed via a long-term, collaborative process with the target age group. In The Dream Collector, a school group on a Media Studies field trip to the isolated country house of a black-and-white movie pioneer enter a sinister dreamworld when they go exploring after dark. Once they step through the movie screen, each of the young friends meets their dream double, the sinister Neverborn… In Fast, a twenty-four-hour school fundraiser in a semi-rural town takes on a new urgency when farmer’s daughter Cara refuses to eat again until the supermarkets she holds responsible for her father’s suicide agree to her demands. In The Domino Effect – a five-star hit at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival Fringe – a silent girl finds her voice, and her mother, when a mysterious East End antiques dealer teaches her how small actions lead to big effects, and how to master the law of unintended consequences. With their flexible, mixed casts, the plays are particularly suited to performance by young people’s groups, who will enjoy the demands and challenges of playing roles specifically created for teenage actors.

Domino Black, professional assassin I've killed too many to count. All in the name of United States security. I don't care. I don't feel — I just do what I'm told. My latest assignment was different. I had to go undercover. Try to find out if the nightclub owner, Luke Brasco, was really planning to sell vital information to terrorists — before I took him out. I had to sleep with the target. It was the only way. I showed up at his club, an enigma in black, and asked about renting the apartment above the club. He'd barely said yes before I had him in bed. It wasn't just sex. It was heart pounding, body racking, soul wrenching… Sex like I'd never had before. I made a fatal mistake — I fell in love!

The topic concerns the so-called 'domino effects' or accidents with escalation effects within the chemical industry. Domino effects can be defined in a number of ways. For a list of domino effect definitions, see Reniers' article in the Journal of Hazardous Materials 177 (2010). The most widely used definition is that of Delvosalle (1998): "A domino effect is a cascade of accidents (domino events) in which the consequences of a previous accident are increased by the following one(s), spatially as well as temporally, leading to a major accident.". To the best of the authors' knowledge, no book is currently available that specifically deals with the important topic of preventing domino effects in the chemical and process industries. However, a large amount of academic research has been carried out since the EU Seveso-II Directive entered into force (1996), requiring that such low frequency/high consequence events are considered in companies' safety reports (art. 8). Academic interest is evident by the considerable amount of scientific papers on the subject published since 1996. The topic has thus gained importance within the academic world. With respect to industry, domino effects and their prevention are mainly considered important due to the legislative requirements, that goes beyond the capabilities of simplified domino assessment methods used before the year 2000. Since the 2003 Amendment of the Seveso-II Directive, imposing even more strict regulations on the reporting of domino scenarios and on the identification of domino effects outside the boundaries of a single industrial site, domino effects constitute an issue that needs to be specifically addressed in the management of industrial sites. Moreover, especially since 9/11, the possibility of domino effects has become important also from a security perspective, thus from the viewpoint of preventing and/or mitigating intentionally induced escalation events (e.g. by terrorists or by disgruntled employees). Presents Domino effects from a technological as well as a managerial (non-technological) perspective- holistic/multidisciplinary approach Covers Domino effects from a safety (non-intentional) as well as a security (intentional) perspective-guidelines for preventing accidents and actions to be taken Written for academics as well as industrialists (easy to understand, yet advanced science)-holistic overview of the topic from theoretical and practical aspects Provides State-of-the-art methodologies for domino effect assessment-easy to understand methods for assessment of domino effects Provides worked examples on key-methodologies-real life situations enabling the section of the most appropriate methodology Includes Glossary-clear and unambiguous definition of terms used throughout the text which avoids misunderstandings
