Download Pdf

This book explains the growing field of syndemic theory and research, a framework for the analysis and prevention of disease interactions that addresses underlying social and environmental causes. This perspective complements single-issue prevention strategies, which can be effective for discrete problems, but often are mismatched to the goal of protecting the public's health in its widest sense. "Merrill Singer has astutely described why health problems should not be seen in isolation, but rather in the context of other diseases and the social and economic inequities that fuel them. An important read for public health and social scientists." —Michael H. Merson, director, Duke Global Health Institute "Not only does this book provide a persuasive theoretical biosocial model of syndemics, but it also illustrates the model with a wide variety of fascinating historical and contemporary examples." —Peter J. Brown, professor of Anthropology and Global Health and director, Center for Health, Culture, and Society, Emory University "The concept of syndemics is Singer's most important contribution to critical medical anthropology as it interfaces with an ecosocial approach to epidemiology." —Mark Nichter, Regents Professor, Department of Anthropology, University of Arizona "Merrill Singer offers the public the most comprehensive work ever written on this key area of research and policy making." —Francisco I. Bastos, chairman of the graduate studies on epidemiology, Fundacao Oswaldo Cruz "Exquisitely describes how this new approach is a critical tool that brings together veterinary, medical, and social sciences to solve emerging infectious and non-infectious diseases of today's world." —Bonnie Buntain, MS, DVM, diplomate, American College of Veterinary Preventive Medicine "For too long the great integrative perspectives on modern biomedicine and public health disease ecology and social medicine-have remained more or less separate. In this innovative and provocative book, Merrill Singer develops a valuable synthesis that will reshape the way we think about health and disease." —Warwick H. Anderson, MD, PhD, professorial research fellow, Department of History and Centre for Values, Ethics, and the Law in Medicine, University of Sidney

Blood Lust is an anthology of: Kept, Claimed, and Mated. Kept: When werecat, Greta learns her tribe plans to sacrifice her on the next full moon to unleash the potent magic of her blood, a dark sorcerer is the only one strong enough to protect her. Will Dayne kill her as he has so many others of her kind, or is his grudge against her family strong enough to save her? Claimed: In the midst of a power struggle for vampire king, it soon becomes clear to Anthony that the only way to protect a fragile human in his care is to claim her as his mate. Meanwhile, his deepest wish is to have his lover awakened from the memory loss that took everything... not just the memories he meant to erase. Mated: Be small. Be invisible. It’s an understandable life mantra for a human woman in a world of monsters. But Jane’s blood contains a touch of vampire magic, making her an even bigger target. With her faster-than-normal healing time, she’s an ideal punching bag for the abusive vampire she’s been living with, the one she thought might protect her this time. Paul owes a debt to the werewolf alpha, and Cole doesn’t care how he gets paid: flesh or coin. $10,000 or Jane? The human is a small price for the vampire to pay to be debt-free. Cole is attractive and warm---so different from the coldness and death Jane has grown used to. If the werewolves didn’t have a worse reputation than the vampires, being taken by the alpha might feel like rescue, but Cole’s growing possessive nature, makes Jane fear he’ll only abuse her like the others. If he doesn’t, could becoming an alpha’s mate free her from the vampires for good? What Readers are Saying About Blood Lust: "If you love paranormal romance books that really tell a story without using sex scenes as a plot line, you will definitely enjoy this book." -Rhonda R. Robinson "Apparently there is something appealing about some monsters because the "good" bad guys in this trilogy are yummy. If you're a sorcerer/vampire/werewolf junkie, then these are the books for you. Thoroughly enjoyable and worth the money." - Miz J "I love paranormal romances but sometimes when looking for a new author to read, I find myself disappointed. Not in this case. This book is 3 novellas in one and each one a page turner. While each one could be read separate, they do smoothly transition from one to the next. I also like how the attraction isn't an instant thing. The men and women work through prejudices and conflicts before they realize how suited they are for each other. If your looking for a new series to read, I would strongly recommend this one." - Angela Collins "Zoe Winters is a "must read" author for me. I loved all three stories in Blood Lust. It's hard to pick a favorite one, because each one is unique in its own way. I know the "paranormal romance" market is flooded right now. But, this series is more than "just another one", I promise." -Autumn Jones Lake "Great stories, well told. Winters is a very good writer who managed to present a supernatural world without the use of anvil style exposition. The characters we're really developed for novellas and the author writes believable dialogue. I look forward to more!" -Amelia Kilometere "Zoe Winters may well be one of my new favorite writers. Blood Lust is the first book of hers that I've read, but I can promise that it won't be the last. Featuring three interconnected stories, Blood Lust deals with three women who find love in the last place that any of them expected and with three fantastic beasts that aren't what you might expect. Were-cats, vampires, and were-wolves, yes, please! Zoe brings to the table a clarity of vision with regard to her world that makes it feel very concrete and grounded and while putting a new spin on what could have turned into sterotypical depictions of these creatures. She also has a very good writing style that is a pleasure to read. I definitely recommend this book for anyone who's looking for a fun read featuring spirited and sassy women, fantasy and a healthy dose of sexual tension. A must read for fans of Sookie Stackhouse and similar books and series." -Literary Fatale "If you are new to Zoe Winters' paranormal romance writing, then you are in for a treat. Romance fans will love the interaction between the three aspiring couples in this series. Horror fiction fans will be pleased at the intricate details that went into building this world of vampires, werewolves, dark sorcerers, and demons." -M.T. Murphy "These three stories were very good paranormal romances. There is some steam but not heavy or overly graphic. There is a bit of suspense, but all three have happily ever after endings. I'm definitely interested in reading more books by this author." -J. Sasse "All in all, Blood Lust is a full plate for any Paranormal Romance lover out there! The romance is great, but it never overshadows the story, I think Zoe did a great job in balancing that out and I can't wait for more books from her!" -Larissa's Bookish Life "I've not really gotten into the "vampire craze" that seems to be filling the book world - until now. Blood Lust was a little out of my comfort zone but that didn't stop me from reading the book in full. All three parts of the anthology were good alone, but Zoe did a great job of weaving them together. Blood Lust is well written and worth more than what I paid for it. Thank you Zoe for a good read." -JCPhelps The Complete Preternaturals (Paranormal Romance Series): Book 1: Blood Lust Book 2: Save My Soul Book 3: The Catalyst Book 4: Life Cycle Book 5: Forbidden Book 6: Unleash The Moon Shorts: Cat Fight Dark Mercy (teaser for Forbidden) If you enjoy Zoe Winters, here are some other authors you might also enjoy: Bella Forrest, J.R.

Management of critically-ill trauma patients presents multiple challenges that are unique to this patient population. Optimal management of the trauma patient requires establishing priorities of care, minimizing complications, and striving to return the trauma victim to the best possible functional outcome. Yet, most books devoted to trauma focus on prehospital care, the initial assessment of trauma patients, and operative management of specific injuries. Part of the Pittsburgh Critical Care Medicine series, this book will help intensivisits involved in the care of trauma patients implement best care practices for trauma victims in the intensive care unit. Chapters address issues such as: management priorities for trauma patients in the ICU, the use of monitors and drains in trauma patients, resuscitation from hemorrhagic shock, massive transfusions and coagulopathy, ventilator management of trauma patients including patients with chest trauma, as well as management ICU strategies and solutions for specific types of trauma, including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, and burn management.

According to author Mike Schmoker, there is a yawning gap between the most well-known essential practices and the reality of most classrooms. This gap persists despite the hard, often heroic work done by many teachers and administrators. Schmoker believes that teachers and administrators may know what the best practices are, but they aren t using them or reinforcing them consistently. He asserts that our schools are protected by a buffer a protective barrier that prevents scrutiny of instruction by outsiders. The buffer exists within the school as well. Teachers often know only what is going on in their classrooms and they may be completely in the dark about what other teachers in the school are doing. Even principals, says Schmoker, don t have a clear view of the daily practices of teaching and learning in their schools. Schmoker suggests that we need to get beyond this buffer to confront the truth about what is happening in classrooms, and to allow teachers to learn from each other and to be supervised properly. He outlines a plan that focuses on the importance of consistent curriculum, authentic literacy education, and professional learning communities for teachers. What will students get out of this new approach? Learning for life. Schmoker argues passionately that students become learners for life when they have more opportunities to engage in strategic reading, writing with explicit guidance, and argument and discussion. Through strong teamwork, true leadership, and authentic learning, schools and their students can reach new heights. Results Now is a rally cry for educators to focus on what counts. If they do, Schmoker promises, the entire school community can count on unprecedented achievements.

of older children, adults, and the family unit as a whole. These moral evaluations are, in turn, influenced by such external contingencies as popula tion demography, social and economic factors, subsistence strategies, house hold composition, and by cultural ideas concerning the nature of infancy and childhood, definitions of personhood, and beliefs about the soul and its immortality. MOTHER LOVE AND CHILD DEATH Of all the many factors that endanger the lives of young children, by far the most difficult to examine with any degree of dispassionate objectivity is the quality of parenting. Historians and social scientists, no less than the public at large, are influenced by old cultural myths about childhood inno cence and mother love as well as their opposites. The terrible power and significance attributed to maternal behavior (in particular) is a commonsense perception based on the observation that the human infant (specialized as it is for prematurity and prolonged dependency) simply cannot survive for very long without considerable maternal love and care. The infant's life depends, to a very great extent, on the good will of others, but most especially, of course, that of the mother. Consequently, it has been the fate of mothers throughout history to appear in strange and distorted forms. They may appear as larger than life or as invisible; as all-powerful and destructive; or as helpless and angelic. Myths of the maternal instinct compete, historically, witli -myths of a universal infanticidal impulse.

Evolutionary computation (EC) techniques are e?cient nature-inspired pl- ning and optimization methods based on the principles of natural evolution and genetics. Due to their e?ciency and the simple underlying principles, these methods can be used for a large number of problems in the context of problem solving,optimization,andmachinelearning. Alargeandcontinuouslyincreasing number of researchers and practitioners make use of EC techniques in many - plication domains. The book at hand presents a careful selection of relevant EC applications combined with thorough examinations of techniques for a successful application of EC. The presented papers illustrate the current state of the art in the application of EC and should help and inspire researchers and practitioners to develop e?cient EC methods for design and problem solving. All papers in this book were presented during EvoWorkshops 2005, which was a varying collection of workshops on application-oriented aspects of EC. Since 1999, the format of the EvoWorkshops has proved to be very successful and well representative of the advances in the application of EC. Consequently, over the last few years, EvoWorkshops has become one of the major events addressing the application of EC. In contrast to other large conferences in the EC ?eld, the EvoWorkshops focus solely on application aspects of EC and are an important link between EC research and the application of EC in a large variety of di?erent domains.

A vast number of children in the United States are evaluated and treated for urologic conditions by urologists practicing general urology due to the relatively few fellowship-trained pediatric urologists. Pediatric Urology: A General Urologist’s Guide is written specifically for general urologists as a concise and comprehensive reference of the more common pediatric urologic conditions. Other health practitioners (i.e. pediatrician, family practitioner, residents, medical students, and mid-level providers) will also find this book a key reference. Written by well-respected pediatric urologists, this volume will assist the health care provider to rapidly review the essential aspects of the physical examination, evaluation, diagnostic testing, and management while the patient is still in the office. The chapters are arranged into four sections to allow for easier access to the information: office urology, genitalia, urinary tract, and miscellaneous topics. Furthermore, the first chapter of the book will be dedicated to facts and figures (ex. normal penile and renal lengths based on age, dosing of common medications, and grading system for vesicoureteral reflux) that serves as a single source for this information. Pediatric Urology: A General Urologist’s Guide offers the reader the essential information to assist them in the care of children.
