Journal of Two Visits Forgotten Books

Excerpt from A Journal of Two Visits: Made to Some Nations of Indians on the West Side of the River Ohio, in the Years 1772 and 1773 Kind Reader, You have in this Journal presented to your view my travels in two visits to the Indians on the rivers Ohio and Siota; in which a description is given of this weft em worlds as far as the towns of the Shawannee Indians which are situated west of the river Siota; together with what endeavours were made to civilize the Heathens, and my judgment on that subject. It cannot be expected that a particular narrative of the occurrences of every day should be given because this would render the work voluminous, and too expensive; but remarks are made on whatever was thought most worthy of notice. Perhaps it may be asked what motives influenced me to undertake a journey attended with so much expenses, hardships and fatigue? By reading of the Scriptures it appeared, that the gospel is to be preached to all nations, and that some out of all shall join in the praises of the Lamb of God: seeing but little signs of the kingdom of Christ among us, it was thought that it might be the day of God's mercy and visitation of these neglected savage nations.

Physics in Anaesthesia SCION PUBLISHING

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

From reviews: "Its warm and familiar style of writing makes it accessible for all. Throughout each of the 29 chapters, there was a real feel that the authors knew what was needed of you...Many of the questions I spent hours flicking through appendices in other books for were clearly answered here...There is a nice feel to this book. It is as if someone has sat down and really thought about each chapter. It feels more like your clever friend than a textbook. Current curriculums have been considered, as have common themes and questions...In conclusion, although I have always believed that examination topics, with all randomness and occasional obscurity, can and never will be fully covered by a solo text, this book comes close. It is an excellent core text for anyone needing to learn physics in anaesthesia." European Journal of Anaesthesiology, April 2014 "Overall, Physics in Anaesthesia succeeds in providing a concise and easy to read review text covering what has historically been a dry and difficult to present topic. The book is easy to understand and sufficiently covers most topics one would expect from such a book. It seems well suited for those studying for exams, but it can also serve as a good reference text for all levels of anesthesia providers." Anesthesiology, September 2013 "This is an excellent refreshing and practical text when compared with various older textbooks on physics for anesthesia...The text is written in a concise, uncomplicated, and easily understood manner, and representative clinical scenarios are often used...In my view, this is a superb teaching textbook on basic physics...I would recommend this textbook to our Anesthesia Post-Graduate Program!" Canadian Journal of Anesthesia (2012) 59: 1161-1162 "...a refreshing change from the more traditional textbooks with their pages of derivations and small, bland, obscure figures..." Technic: The Journal of Operating Department Practice, May 2012 Volume Issue 3 "...this text provides a fantastic resource for those wishing to consolidate their learning...A major strength of this book is its clear writing style. The well organised text is supported by excellent diagrams and highlighted key terms. There are clear learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter, with a short summary and a multiple choice question test at the end...Overall, this is an excellent resource and essential revision tool." Nursing Standard, June 2012, 30: vol. 26 no. 41 "This is a book specifically for anesthesia professionals written by Anesthetists, Physicists and Perfusionists. After reading the book cover to cover I can say without reservation, it is most certainly the easiest book on physics I have ever read. The simple and intuitive layout, easy to understand diagrams, relevant objectives and the quizzes at the end of each chapter help me expand my understanding of topics I was already a master of. That is saying something. This book is not just a 'must have' for students of anesthesia and any prospective anesthesia students looking to brush up before training but also for the working Nurse Anesthetists as a quick and easy to use reference." www.nurse-anesthesia.org, June 2012 Physics in Anaesthesia caters especially for those who consider themselves non-physicists. It covers the FRCA syllabus in an informative and accessible way from the very basics, and provides an important link between theory and practice. Worked examples highlight the relevance to clinical practice, and along with graphs and charts, make the basics of physics understandable not only to doctors, but also to operating department practitioners and students. It does not assume that readers will have A level physics. Two different types of self-assessment questions at the end of each chapter will test understanding of the key concepts, while a summary section for each topic is ideal as a rapid refresher, highlighting any problem areas.

Essays in the Theory of Employment JOAN ROBINSON OXFORD BASIL BLAGKWELL 1947 First printed 1937 Macmillan Co. Ltd. Second Edition October 1947 Reprinted November 1947 Printed in Great Britain for BASIL BLACKWELL MOTT, LIMITED by A. R, MOWBRAY Co. LIMITED, London and . Oxford FOREWORI THERE have been considerable developments since these essays were written, both in theory and in experience. From the point of view of theory, they belong to the period of the first impact upon economic thought of Keynes 3 General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money. From the point of view of experience, they belong to a period when the existence of unemployment over shadowed all economic problems. I think that they are most easily to be understood in the light of their historical setting, and that any attempt to bring them up to date by shifts of emphasis would be confusing. At the same time I believe that they are not without relevance to the dominant problems of the present day. I have therefore not made any substantial changes in the text of the first edition. I have, however, made a few alterations which might equally well have been made in the first instance. . I have removed an error from the argument on Mobility of Labour p. 33, I have simplified the exposition of the effect of inventions on em ployment p. 96, and I have amplified the discussion of the influence of exchange depreciation on the balance of trade p. 143. JOAN ROBINSON CAMBRIDGE February, 1947 FOREWORD TO FIRST EDITION THESE essays represent an attempt to apply the principles of Mr. Keynes General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money to a number of particular problems. References to the General Theory are provided for the convenience of the reader, not by way of acknowledgment to Mr. Keynes, for the very existence of this book, for what it is worth, must be regarded as an acknowledg ment to the work of Mr. Keynes. The following are reprinted each with some alteration by vi FOREWORD permission of the editors concerned Disguised Unemployment from the Economic Journal, The Long-Period Theory of Employ ment except Section 5 from the eitschnft fur Nationalokonomie and the first part of Some Reflections on Marxist Economics from-the Economic Journal.

A problem which has caused much perplexity is presented by the relationship, as it exists in the minds of employees, between changes in real wages and changes in money wages. As to what actually occurs there is no dispute. A cut in money wages will always be resisted by Trade Unions with whatever force they may command while a rise in prices, such as occurs when there is an increase in effective demand, does not normally lead to the demand for a rise in money wages sufficient to prevent real wages from falling. Even when Trade Unions are strong enough to prevent money wages from falling, they frequently submit to a fall in real wages, brought about by a rise in prices and accompanied by an increase in employment...

Housekeepers and Home-Makers (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Housekeepers and Home-Makers In presenting this modest volume to my readers, I desire, first of all, to disclaim any intention of book-making when the various chapters were written. They have all appeared in "The Boston Herald;" and it was the unexpected favor which they met from the readers of that journal, and the frequently repeated call for articles that are now out of print, that led to their being embodied in the present permanent form. I have thought it best not to change them materially; and they stand, for the most part, just as they appeared in the columns of the newspaper. If they have a sort of freedom such as belongs to the family, it is because they were written for family use. The endeavor was, from the beginning, to give to housekeepers just such information as they most needed, particularly if they were inexperienced. If I have done this in any measure, I shall feel that my work has not been in vain. Neither have I said all that there is to say on this topic of housekeeping. To do that were an impossible task, as the subject is inexhaustible. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Examination of Joseph Galloway, Esq. Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Examination of Joseph Galloway, Esq.: By a Committee of the House of Commons The Council of the Seventy-six Society thought it advisable to present this reprint of this well-known though almost inaccessible pamphlet. The character and talents of Mr. Galloway, the opportunities which he possessed of obtaining information, the facts stated by him and the weight attached to them by writers in his own and later days, have made this examination a document of some historical importance. A few notes, designated by brackets, have been added by me. I had intended to append others, but I refrained when I reflected that many if not all of the members of the Society were quite as well or better acquainted than myself with this period of our history. Those which are given are chiefly on MS. authority; and I here return my thanks to those gentlemen, who have favored me by access to their papers, particularly Mr. Thompson Westcott. The book cited as Pennsylvania Letters is No. 2396 D, Loganian Library. It is greatly to be regretted that we have no full and truthful history of the loyalists, of their numbers, of the measures which they devised, promoted or prevented, of the motives which actuated them, and consequent upon this the classes into which they were divided, of the influence which they exercised and its effects. Numerous isolated facts or notices arc to be found in works relating to the Revolution, and Mr. Sabine's Loyalists and Curwen's Journal (edited by Mr. Ward), are valuable so far as they go. But a work embracing the entire subject is yet to be written, as part of the materials for which this reprint of Mr, Galloway's examination may not be without value.

Mankind faces extinction at alien hands. The only thing standing in their way? THE DARK WING The birdlike zor are just one of the alien races that humanity encounters when it travels to the stars, and from the very first meeting it has been all-out war. For many years the conflicts have been sporadic, usually ending with an Earth concession and a treaty. But the zor do not respect mankind and have no intention of honoring the agreements. When the zor decide to mount a surprise attack against human colonies, the normally self-absorbed government of Earth realizes that something must be done before it is too late. A controversial scholar by the name of Ivan Hector Charles Marais, a former admiral, is brought in to take command of the Space Navy and defeat the enemy. Marais has spent his entire life studying the zor and claims to have a plan to deal with them once and for all. With so few options remaining, Marais is put in charge of the battlefleet. Earth just wants the threat neutralized and would be happy with a stalemate, but Marais has other ideas. He presents himself as the Dark Wing of zor mythology, destined to exterminate the zor, and unwilling to accept a return to the status quo. EDITORIAL REVIEWS: "Walter H.

Excerpt: Ghostbusters is a supernatural comedy multi-media franchise created in 1984. Its inception was for the movie Ghostbusters, released on June 8, 1984 by Columbia Pictures. It centered around a group of eccentric New York City parapsychologists who investigate and capture ghosts for a living. For the movie this franchise licensed action figures, novelizations, and other original materials to be produced around the movies theme. After this initial success they released original stories in other fields such as a comic book, a video game, a television series, and a theme park attraction. With the 2009 release of Ghostbusters: The Video Game the characters within the Ghostbusters set up their own fictional version of a Ghostbusters franchise to open Ghostbusters locations in other cities, which in real life was earlier seen in two independent films not officially approved by Columbia Pictures. The concept of the first film was inspired by Dan Aykroyd's own fascination with the paranormal, and it was conceived by Aykroyd as a vehicle for himself and friend and fellow Saturday Night Live alum John Belushi. Aykroyd came up with Ghostbusters after reading an article about quantum physics and parapsychology in the American Society of Psychical Research Journal and then watching movies like Ghostchasers. Aykroyd thought, "Let's redo one of those old ghost comedies, but let's use the research that's being done today. Even at that time, there was plausible research that could point to a device that could capture ectoplasm or materialization; at least visually." The original story as written by Aykroyd was much more ambitious-and unfocused-than what would be eventually filmed; in Aykroyd's original vision, a group of Ghostbusters would travel through time, space and other dimensions taking on huge ghosts (of which the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man was just one of many). Also, the Ghostbusters wore S.W.A.T.-like outfits and used wands instead of Proton Packs to fight the ghosts; Ghostbu

"Couch hits on an improbable, even fantastic premise, and then rigorously hews to the logic that it generates, keeping it afloat (at times literally) to the end." -Los Angeles Times "Delightfully lighthearted writing...Occasionally laugh-out-loud funny, the enthusiastic prose carries readers through sporadic dark moments ...Parzybok's quirky humor recalls the flaws and successes of early Douglas Adams."-Publishers Weekly "The book succeeds as a conceptual art piece, a literary travelogue, and a fantastical quest." -Willamette Week "Hundreds of writers have slavishly imitated-or outright ripped off-Tolkien in ways that connoisseurs of other genres would consider shameless. What Parzybok has done here in adapting the same old song to a world more familiar to the reader is to revive the genre and make it relevant again" -The Stranger A Spring Summer Indie Next Reading List Pick: Top 10 Reading Group Suggestions "Couch follows the quirky journey of Thom, Erik, and Tree as they venture into the unknown at the behest of a magical, orange couch, which has its own plan for their previously boring lives. Parzybok's colorful characters, striking humor, and eccentric magical realism offer up an adventuresome read." -Christian Crider, Inkwood Books, Tampa, FL A January 2009 Indie Next List Pick "This funny novel of furniture moving gone awry is a magical realism quest for modern times. Parzybok's touching story explores the aimlessness of our culture, a society of jobs instead of callings, replete with opportunities and choices but without the philosophies and vocations we need to make meaningful decisions." -Josh Cook, Porter Square Books, Cambridge, MA "A lot of people are looking for magic in the world today, but only Benjamin Parzybok thought to check the sofa, which is, I think, the place it's most likely to be found. Couch is a slacker epic: a gentle, funny book that ambles merrily from Coupland to Tolkien, and gives couch-surfing (among other things) a whole new meaning." -Paul La Farge "One of the strangest road novels you'll ever read. It's a funny and fun book, and it's also a very smart book. Fans of Tom Robbins or Christopher Moore should enjoy this." -Handee Books "It is an upholstered Odyssey unlike any other you are likely to read. It is funny, confusing in places, wild and anarchic. It is part Quixote, part Murakami, part Tom Robbins, part DFS showroom. It has cult hit written all over it." -Scott, Me and My Big Mouth Benjamin Parzybok on tour: http://booktour.com/author/benjamin_parzybok In this exuberant and hilarious debut reminiscent of The Life of Pi and Then We Came to the End, an episode of furniture moving gone awry becomes an impromptu quest of self-discovery, secret histories, and unexpected revelations. Thom is a computer geek whose hacking of a certain Washington-based software giant has won him a little fame but few job prospects. Erik is a smalltime con man, a fast-talker who is never quite quick enough on his feet. Their roommate, Tree, is a confused clairvoyant whose dreams and prophecies may not be completely off base. After a freak accident fl oods their apartment, the three are evicted-but they have to take their couch with them. The real problem? The couch-huge and orange-won't let them put it down. Soon the three roommates are on a cross-country trek along back roads, byways, and rail lines, heading far out of Portland and deep into one very weird corner of the American dream. Benjamin Parzybok is the creator of Gumball Poetry, a journal published through gumball machines, and the Black Magic Insurance Agency, a city-wide mystery/treasure hunt. He has worked as a congressional page, a ghostwriter for the governor of Washington, a web developer, a Taiwanese factory technical writer, an asbestos removal janitor, and a potato sorter. He lives in Portland, Oregon, with the writer Laura Moulton and their two children.
