Practical Guide for Making Post Post-Mortem Examinations and for the Study of Morbid Anatomy Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Practical Guide for Making Post Post-Mortem Examinations and for the Study of Morbid Anatomy: With Directions for Embalming the Dead, and for the Preservation of Specimens of Morbid Anatomy The following work has been prepared with a view of supplying a want, the existence of which has long been felt by the author, both in his private practice and public teaching. No pretension is made of offering a complete work on Morbid Anatomy, the object having been, merely to present the practitioner and student with a practical guide for making post-mortem examinations, to give them hints as to what they are to look for in such cases, and, finally, to aid them in recognizing the various morbid appearances as they are exposed to view. The work is divided into four parts. Parts I, II and III, corresponding to the three great divisions of the body - the Head, Chest and Abdomen. Part IV, is devoted to miscellaneous subjects, and contains chapters on the Bones; Joints; Tumors; Effects of Poisons; Medico-Legal Autopsies ;On Embalming the Dead; and On the Preservation of Morbid Specimen. A few illustrative cases have been introduced, and occasional reference made to morbid specimens in the Museum of the Hahnemann College.

Description: Mike McNichols has created a marvelous fable about evangelism, spiritual formation, faith community, and ministry leadership in The Bartender. This is a study guide to that book. It was written by one who has led several discussion groups on The Bartender and who discovered that readers found it deeply fascinating. The issues it raises are so relevant to many contemporary conversations about how those who believe intersect and interact with those who may not . . . or those who do but don't know they do yet. Mike McNichol's choice to discuss these issues in the context of a fable made them accessible in ways that a more didactic approach would not have. As a result, this guide has been adapted for the use of a more general audience. Specifically, it's been formatted into twelve sessions for those who would wish to read, discuss it, and practice its principles together over a defined period of time. Of course, it can be adapted for other schedules and formats. Whether you're reading this on your own or as part of a group, The Bartender's Assistant is a helpful guide for the journey. Endorsements: ""My friend Tony Blair has taken my modest enterprise and created this wonderful study guide to help leaders and churches open up conversations about both the inward and outward life of the church. He has taken the jumbled furniture of my fictional house and offered a framework for a sense of order-not in the way that confines, but in the creative, intelligent way that he has for preparing things for movement and action. I'm grateful for his thoughtful work that has resulted in this study guide."" --from the Foreword by Michael McNichols About the Contributor(s): Anthony L. (Tony) Blair is a faculty member in leadership studies for Eastern University, Philadelphia. He is also co-senior pastor of Hosanna! A Fellowship of Christians in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He is the author of Fire Across the Water: The Transatlantic Dimensions of the 18th Century Presbyterian Revivals (2010) and Church and Academy in Harmony: Models of Collaboration for the Twenty-First Century (2010).

Organized for ease of use by today's busy mental health clinicians, Menopause: A Mental Health Practitioner's Guide describes the latest knowledge and clinical recommendations associated with menopause in a single, concise guide that is clearly written and comprehensive in scope. Menopause is about changeAbut it is also a normal life stage traversed by most women with little or no difficulty. Not all women have symptoms as they transition to menopause, and women with symptoms experience them in different combinations and levels of intensity. The management of perimenopause and menopause is also rapidly changing. The past 5 years have seen truly dramatic changes in our scientific knowledge of and medical recommendations for perimenopause and menopause. For example, until recently, hormone replacement therapy was highly advocated as an essential aspect of care for women in perimenopause and menopause. Even the definitions used to describe the different time periods and stages associated with natural (i.e., nonsurgical) menopause have changed over time and can be confusing. Thus, Menopause: A Mental Health Practitioner's Guide uses the 1994 World Health Organization Scientific Group on Research in the Menopause terminology, augmented by more recent refinements made by the Stages of Reproductive Aging Workshop. The essential Menopause: A Mental Health Practitioner's Guide sheds light on the complexity and constant change integral to the study and treatment of menopause, bringing together the current work of 14 internationally recognized menopause experts in psychiatry, neuroscience, gynecology, and internal medicine. After an introductory chapter sets the contexts of midlife in women, subsequent chapters in Menopause: A Mental Health Practitioner's Guide cover the following topics: -The basic physiology of the menopausal transition and menopause. -The effects of gonadal hormones on the central nervous system, and in particular, depression, anxiety, and irritability during the menopausal transition and midlife. -New research findings and clinical advice about the effect of gonadal hormones and menopause on psychotic illness in women. -An examination of the medical aspects of and the gynecologic aspects of perimenopause and menopause. -A look beyond menopause to the psychopathology and psychotherapy of older women in various cultures. The timely information contained in Menopause: A Mental Health Practitioner's Guide will help mental health professionals to formulate current, best understanding and treatment for the psychological problems that some women experience as they traverse perimenopause and menopause.

An excerpt from the preface by the writer, Professor E. Mylonas - Director of the Excavations at Mycenae. "Thirty years of excavation have brought about the need for a Guide book such as this, which contains the latest results of the archaeologists' work at Mycenae. The illustrations and the many plans it contains will, I hope, make easy the study of the ruins which at first glance seem labyrinthine. In Part I of the Guide I give a full description of the remains on the acropolis of Mycenae; in Part II, an account of the tombs and houses to be found outside the acropolis. In Part III, I offer a concise account of the history and legends of Mycenae, of the excavations and of the excavators whose work has made possible the study of the Mycenaean civilization.""In this way a rounded picture of the site and its historic role in the affairs of Greece may be obtained from reading the Guide and inspection of the site. It is hoped that the visit to the City of Agamemnon will prove a memorable experience for the reader."

Practical Chemical Analysis of Blood Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Practical Chemical Analysis of Blood: A Book Designed as a Brief Survey of This Subject, for Physicians and Laboratory Workers Accurate data on the chemical composition of the blood, especially of the nonprotein fraction, are of comparatively recent origin, and are primarily the result of American observations with American methods. We owe largely to Folin, Benedict, and Van Slyke the development of the methods which have made this work possible. The practical information which these methods have made available has been especially helpful, since they have given us very valuable data on just those conditions on which the older methods of blood examination, cytology, bacteriology, serology, gave little information - reference is made principally to such constitutional conditions as nephritis, diabetes, and gout. Although it is the primary object of this chapter to consider those observations which have served as a guide to the diagnosis and treatment of disease, it may be well at the outset to indicate the rather broad scope which chemical methods have recently taken in the study of the blood. They have included methods for the blood volume, the blood proteins, serum albumin and globulin, improved methods of hemoglobin estimation; methods for the determination of the nonprotein nitrogen and its individual components, urea, creatinine, uric acid, amino acids, creatine and ammonia; methods for sugar, and for the lipoid constituents, fat, lecithin and cholesterol; methods for the mineral constituents, chlorides, phosphates, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium and iron; methods for the blood gases, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and oxygen, and methods for the hydrogen ion, the acetone bodies, phenol, and such enzymes as diastase, catylase, etc. As already pointed out, these methods have yielded especially helpful information in diabetes, nephritis, and gout, while the data obtained in renal diabetes, infantile conditions such as tetany and the diarrheal acidoses, in eclampsia, malignancy, cholelithiasis, pernicious anemia, disorders of the ductless glands and various urologic conditions, have given us a new point of view regarding many of these disorders. Before proceeding to a discussion of the pathologic variations in the composition of the blood, it may be well to indicate in tabular form the range of changes usually encountered in several common metabolic disorders. From an inspection of Table I it will be apparent that the tests furnish information of great value in diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment. Data are given on nine different blood constituents, the first five of which are regarded of special significance, and are arranged in order of their supposed clinical importance; viz., urea, sugar, CO2-combining power, creatinine and uric acid.

In this five-session DVD-based small group bible study, Who Is This Man?, John Ortberg reveals how Jesus made an inescapable influence on our world and you will learn how you can make one too! Jesus is history's most familiar figure. His impact on the world is immense and non-accidental. From the Dark Ages to Post-Modernity he is the man who won't go away. And yet ...He did not brashly defend his movement in the spirit of a rising political or military leader. He did not lay out a case that history would judge superior in all future books. He did not start by telling his disciples, "Here are proofs of my divinity; affirm them and I'll accept you." Who Is This Man? illustrates how Jesus' influence has swept over history, bringing his inspiration to the evolution of art, science, government, medicine, and education. And how his vision for us to lead lives of dignity, compassion, forgiveness, and hope continues to inspire and challenge humanity today. This pack contains one Who Is This Man? DVD and one study guide. When used together, they provide you with a practical tool that can help grow your faith. Sessions include: The Man Who Won't Go Away A Revolution of Humanity The Power of Forgiveness Why It's a Small World After All Three Days That Changed the World

Susanna Zaraysky has crammed this little book with big ideas about how to learn a language, including a multitude of extremely practical tips and applications.

Wanna Cook? Myrmidon Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"I am not in danger ...I am the danger." With those words, Breaking Bad's Walter White solidified himself as TV's greatest antihero. Wanna Cook? explores the most critically lauded series on television with analyses of the individual episodes and ongoing storylines. From details like stark settings, intricate camerawork, and jarring music to the larger themes, including the roles of violence, place, self-change, legal ethics, and fan reactions, this companion book is perfect for those diehards who have watched the Emmy Award - winning series multiple times as well as for new viewers. Wanna Cook? elucidates without spoiling, and illuminates without nit-picking. A must have for any fan's collection. Excerpt. (c) Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. From Wanna Cook's Episode Guide 1.01 Pilot/Breaking Bad Original air date: January 20, 2008 Written and directed by: Vince Gilligan "I prefer to see [chemistry] as the study of change ...that's all of life, right? It's the constant, it's the cycle. It's solution - dissolution, just over and over and over. It is growth, then decay, then - transformation! It is fascinating, really." - Walter White We meet Walter White, Jesse Pinkman, and Walt's family. Walt is poleaxed by some tragic news. With nothing to lose, Walt decides to try to make one big score, and damn the consequences. For that, however, he needs the help of Jesse Pinkman, a former student of Walt's turned loser meth cook and drug dealer. From the moment you see those khakis float down out of a perfectly blue desert sky, you know that you're watching a show like nothing else on television. The hard beauty and stillness of the American Southwest is shattered by a wildly careening RV driven by a pasty white guy with a developing paunch wearing only a gas mask and tighty-whities. What the hell? Like all pilots, this one is primarily exposition, but unlike most, the exposition is beautifully handled as the simple background of Walter's life. The use of a long flashback as the body of the episode works well, in no small part due to Bryan Cranston's brilliant performance in the opening, which gives us a Walter White so obviously, desperately out of his element that we immediately wonder how this guy wound up pantsless in the desert and apparently determined to commit suicide-by-cop. After the opening credits, the audience is taken on an intimate tour of Walt's life. Again, Cranston sells it perfectly. The viewer is presented with a middle-aged man facing the back half of his life from the perspective of an early brilliance and promise that has somehow imploded into a barely-making-ends-meet existence as a high school chemistry teacher. He has to work a lousy second job to support his pregnant wife and disabled teenage son and still can't afford to buy a hot water heater. Executive producer and series creator Vince Gilligan, along with the cast and crew (Gilligan & Co.), take the audience through this day in the life of Walt, and it's just one little humiliation after another. The only time Walt's eyes sparkle in the first half of the episode is when he is giving his introductory lecture to his chemistry class. Here Walt transcends his lower-middle-class life in an almost poetic outpouring of passion for this incredible science. Of course, even that brief joy is crushed by the arrogant insolence of the archetypal high school jackass who stays just far enough inside the line that Walt can't do a damn thing about him. So this is Walt and his life, as sad sack as you can get, with no real prospects of improvement, a brother-in-law who thinks he's a wuss, and a wife who doesn't even pay attention during birthday sex. Until everything changes. The sociologist and criminologist Lonnie Athens would likely classify Walt's cancer diagnosis as the beginning of a "dramatic self change," brought on by something so traumatic that a person's self - the very thoughts, ideas, and ways of understanding and interacting with the world - is shattered, or "fragmented," and in order to survive, the person must begin to replace that old self, those old ideas, with an entirely new worldview. (Athens and his theories are discussed much more fully in the previous essay, but since we warned you not to read that if you don't want to risk spoilage, the basic - and spoiler-free - parts are mentioned here.) Breaking Bad gives us this fragmentation beautifully. Note how from the viewer's perspective Walt is upside down as he is moved into the MRI machine, a motif smoothly repeated in the next scene with Walt's reflection in the top of the doctor's desk. Most discombobulating of all, however, is the consultation with the doctor. At first totally voiceless behind the tinnitus-like ambient soundtrack and faceless except for his chin and lips, the doctor and the news he is imparting are made unreal, out of place, and alien. As for Walt, in an exquisite touch of emotional realism, all he can focus on is the mustard stain on the doctor's lab coat. How many of us, confronted with such tragic news, have likewise found our attention focused, randomly, illogically, on some similar mundanity of life? It is from this shattered self that Walt begins to operate and things that would have been completely out of the question for pre-cancer Walt are now actual possibilities - things like finding a big score before he dies by making and selling pure crystal meth. Remember that Walt is a truly brilliant chemist, and knows full well what crystal meth is and what it does to people who use it. He may not know exactly what he's getting into, but he knows what he is doing. Enter Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul, best known previously for his role on Big Love), a skinny white-boy gangster wannabe, who under the name "Cap'n Cook" makes a living cooking and selling meth. He's also an ex-student of Walt's, and after being recognized by his former teacher during a drug bust, Walt has all the leverage he needs to coerce Jesse into helping him. Why does he need him? Because, as Walt says, "you know the business, and I know the chemistry." Symbolizing just how far beyond his old life Walt is moving, he and Jesse park their battered RV/meth lab in the desert outside of Albuquerque, far from the city and any signs of human life. All that is there is a rough dirt road and a "cow house" in the distance. The desert is a place without memory, a place outside of things, where secrets can be kept, and meth can be cooked. This is where Walt lives now. It is in this desert space that Walt becomes a killer, albeit in self defense. Ironically, the one thing that Walt views as holding the keys to the secret of life - chemistry - becomes the means to end lives. Walt, a father, teacher, and an integral part of an extended family - in other words, an agent of life and growth - has now become a meth cook, using chemical weapons to kill his enemies. Walter White has become an agent of death. The transformation is just beginning, but already Skyler (Anna Gunn, previously known for her roles on The Practice and Deadwood) is having some trouble recognizing her husband: "Walt? Is that you?" LAB NOTES Highlight: Jesse to Walt: "Man, some straight like you - giant stick up his ass all of a sudden at age what? Sixty? He's just going to break bad?" Did You Notice: This episode has the first (but not the last!) appearance of Walt's excuse that he's doing everything for his family. There's an award on the wall in Walt's house commemorating his contributions to work that was awarded the Nobel Prize back in 1985. The man's not a slouch when it comes to chemistry, so what's happened since then? At Walt's surprise birthday party, Walt is very awkward when he handles Hank's gun. Speaking of Hank (Dean Norris, whose other roles were in the TV series Medium, and the movies Total Recall, and Little Miss Sunshine), he waits until the school bus has left the neighborhood before ordering his team into the meth lab, showing what a good and careful cop he is. Maybe it's just us, but J.P. Wynne High School (where Walt teaches chemistry) seems to have the most well-equipped high school chemistry lab in the country. As Walt receives his diagnosis, the doctor's voice and all other sounds are drowned out by a kind of numbing ringing, signifying a kind of psychic overload that prevents Walt from being fully engaged with the external world. This effect will be used again several times throughout the series. Walt literally launders his money to dry it out, foreshadowing what's to come. Shooting Up: Thanks to John Toll, who served as cinematographer for the first season of Breaking Bad, the show has one of the most distinctive opening shots ever. Just watch those empty khaki pants flutter across a clear sky. Breaking Bad loves certain camera angles and this section is where we'll point out some of the shots that make the show stand out. Look at that taped non-confession Walt makes for his family when he thinks the cops are coming for him. We're used to watching recordings of characters - shows are filmed (or taped), but here, we're watching him recording himself on tape. Who's the real Walt? Title: Many pilot episodes share the name with the title of the show and Breaking Bad's pilot is no exception. Vince Gilligan, who grew up in Farmville, Virginia, has stated that "breaking bad" is a Southernism for going off the straight and narrow. When you bend a stick until it breaks, the stick usually breaks cleanly. But sometimes, sticks (and men) break bad. You can wind up in the hospital with a splinter in your eye, or you can wind up in Walter White's world. Either way, it's no kind of good. Interesting Facts: Show creator Vince Gilligan's early educational experience was at J. P. Wynne Campus School in Farmville, Virginia. He recycled the name for the high school in Breaking Bad. SPECIAL INGREDIENTS What Is Crystal Meth, Anyway? While there is some evidence that methamphetamine can be found naturally in several species of acacia plants, commercial meth making involves chemistry, not agriculture. The history of the drug dates back to 1893 when Japanese chemist Nagai Nagayoshi first synthesized the substance from ephedrine. The name "methamphetamine...
