Author: Anne-Marie Scully
Born in 1981, shortly after the first IVF baby, Anne-Marie Scully grew up in a world where infertility is a problem everyone assumes can be fixed. Named for the frustration Anne-Marie felt when realizing that becoming a mother was not a given and that IVF was not a guaranteed 'Plan B', Motherhoodwinked documents the pain and the shame of life as an infertile woman. But Motherhoodwinked is more than just another trying to conceive memoir, it is an important social commentary on the impact infertility has on the lives of those going through it and how the modern digital age has both helped and hindered the journey. With heartbreaking honesty Anne-Marie takes us on a journey from her initial optimism and excitement at finally trying for a baby and fulfilling her lifelong dream to become a mother, through to her increasingly complex pregnancy plan, her experiments with holistic therapies, the NaPro program and finally her experience with ICSI and IVF. Sometimes sad, sometimes laugh out loud funny Motherhoodwinked offers both couples going through infertility and their support networks coping skills for how to survive this lonely journey, that actually affects one in six couples.
Anthony William, the Medical Medium, has helped tens of thousands of people heal from ailments that have been misdiagnosed or ineffectively treated —or that medical communities can’t resolve. And he’s done it all by listening to a divine voice that literally speaks into his ear, telling him what is at the root of people’s pain or illness and what they need to do to be restored to health.In his first book, the New York Times bestseller Medical Medium, Anthony revealed how to treat dozens of illnesses with targeted healing regimens in which nutrition played a major role. Medical Medium Life-Changing Foods delves deeper into the healing power of over 50 fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices, and wild foods that can have an extraordinary effect on health. Anthony explains each food —s properties, the symptoms and conditions it can help relieve or heal, and the emotional and spiritual benefits it brings. And for each food, he offers a delicious recipe to help you enjoy its maximum benefit, from sweet potatoes with braised cabbage stuffing to honey-coconut ice cream and chewy apricot bars. You’ll discover: • Why wild blueberries are the “resurrection food,” asparagus is the fountain of youth, and lemons can lift your spirits when you’ve had bad news • The best foods to eat if you have gallstones, hypertension, brain fog, thyroid issues, or migraines —plus hundreds more symptoms and conditions that may be holding you back • The particular healing powers of kiwis, cucumbers, cat’s claw, coconut, and much more • Insight into cravings, how to use stress to your advantage, and the key role fruit plays in fertility Much of Anthony’s information is dramatically different from the conventional wisdom of medical communities, and much of it has never appeared anywhere before. So don’t expect to hear the same old food facts rehashed here. Instead, expect to get a whole new understanding of why oranges offer more than just vitamin C —and a powerful set of tools for healing from illness and keeping yourself and your loved ones safe and well.
Geschäftsführer sind leitende Manager mit einer Vielzahl von Pflichten. Damit sie diese ordnungsgemäß erfüllen können und Handlungsspielräume effektiv nutzen, sollten sie mit den juristischen Gegebenheiten vertraut sein. Zudem müssen und wollen sie haftungsrechtliche Risiken erkennen und minimieren. Der vorliegende Band schnürt ein Paket der wichtigsten Aufgaben. Der erste Teil stellt die wichtigsten Aufgaben des Geschäftsführers dar. Ausführlich informiert er über die rechtlichen Grundlagen, Rechte und Pflichten. Der zweite Teil dieses Ratgebers betrifft den persönlichen Status des Geschäftsführers. Umfassend erörtert er den Anstellungsvertrag und diejenigen Rechtsfragen, die beim Abschluss und bei der Beendigung eines solchen auftreten. Plus: Beratungshilfe zur inhaltlichen Gestaltung. Der zweite Teil enthält einen detaillierten Abschnitt zur Versorgung des Geschäftsführers. Detailliert erläutert der dritte Teil die haftungs- und strafrechtlichen Folgen für GmbH-Geschäftsführer. Das Augenmerk richtet sich hierbei insbesondere auf die Frage, inwieweit die haftungsrechtliche Verantwortung, z.B. durch Versicherungslösungen oder vertragliche Gestaltungen minimiert werden kann.

Susanne Klein-Vogelbach's acclaimed textbook describing her concept of functional kinetics! The well-known physiotherapist presents her theory concerning the systematic observation and analysis of human movement. The purpose of functional kinetics is to improve observation, analysis and instruction of human movement. The physiotherapist must be able to analyse movement in order to find and define the functional problem. She or he must be able to effect the required change in movement, whether through manipulation, instructing the patient how to move or both. The ideas outlined in this book are basic to physical therapy and rehabilitation and should be familiar to every active therapist.

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
This book tackles these questions by applying advanced methods from statistical physics and related fields to all types of non-linear dynamics prone to disaster. It gives readers an insight into the problems of catastrophes and is one of the first books on the theories of disaster. Based on physical and mathematical theories, the general principles of disaster appearance are explained.

The impacts of natural and man-made disasters have increased exponentially over the past few decades. Moreover, with our global interconnectedness and the growing scale of disasters, today's catastrophic disasters can have regional, national, and even global economic consequences. Following in the tradition of the successful first edition, Hazards Analysis: Reducing the Impact of Disasters, Second Edition provides a structure and process for understanding the nature of natural and human-caused disasters. Stressing the role of hazard risk management for public, private, and nonprofit organizations, the author and expert contributors cover problem solving, risk analysis, and risk communications to ensure readers are in a position to identify key problems associated with hazards and the risks that they present. The book details a systematic process of hazards identification, vulnerability determination, and consequence assessment for the natural, built, and human environment. Using a cross-disciplinary approach, this book effectively demonstrates how to use the results of vulnerability assessment, spatial analysis, and community planning to reduce adverse disaster outcomes and foster social, economic, and environmental sustainability. Throughout, the book stresses that hazards analysis is not an isolated process but one that must engage the local community. Complete with clearly set objectives, key terms, discussion questions, satellite images and maps, and ancillary websites for further study, this authoritative guide covers every element of the hazard analysis process in a step-by-step format. Hazards Analysis presents time-proven strategies for building sustainable communities, identifying and prioritizing risks, and establishing successful disaster prevention and relief strategies prior to a disaster.
In spite of the good safety records of chemical plants many people regard chemical production as dangerous because of a few major accidents that have occurred. A knowledge of at least the fundamentals of chemical safety technology is indispensable for chemists and engineers working in chemical industry. The increasingly stringent legal and administrative requirements can only be answered by more highly qualified employees. This book combines the author's experience of 15 years of research in the field of chemical safety and 10 years in the chemical industry. It provides newcomers with an easy access to the field and helps practitioners in the chemical industry to answer all questions concerning their daily work with hazardous materials or potentially dangerous chemical plants. The investigation of risks, and preventive measures to be taken to minimize the probability of an accident, as well as its consequences are explained.

In many branches of physics, mathematics, and engineering, solving a problem means solving a set of ordinary or partial differential equations. Nearly all methods of constructing closed form solutions rely on symmetries. The emphasis in this text is on how to find and use the symmetries; this is supported by many examples and more than 100 exercises. This book will form an introduction accessible to beginning graduate students in physics, applied mathematics, and engineering. Advanced graduate students and researchers in these disciplines will find the book a valuable reference.
