This text provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art review of this field, and will serve as a valuable practical resource for clinicians with an interest in conducting urodynamics. The book reviews new data about the indications, conduct and interpretation of various aspects of urodynamic testing. With an emphasis on clinical urodynamics, it is arranged into sections that correspond with the basic elements of urodynamic testing; noninvasive urodynamics (uroflow and post void residual), cystometrogram, storage studies (leak point pressures, stability, compliance and capacity) and voiding phases (pressure flow study). Other testing modalities that are discussed include EMG testing, fluoroscopy, and provocative maneuvers. Practical Urodynamics for the Clinician will serve as a very useful and practical resource for physicians and researchers dealing with, and interested in, this complex physiologic testing tool. It will provide a concise yet comprehensive summary of the field that will help guide the selection of patients for the study, preparation of the patient, the conduct of the study and finally the interpretation of the urodynamics evaluation.

Trained Marine sniper Nathan McBride is no stranger to sacrifice. Fourteen years ago, he paid a heavy price in service to his country when he was tortured to the brink of death by notorious Nicaraguan interrogator Montez de Oca. McBride is the sole survivor, his scarred body a living testament to the worst humanity can inflict and endure. Only he can bear witness. Only he can avenge the dead. When the FBI recovers a mutilated corpse from a remote Utah lake, McBride must face an ugly truth: Montez de Oca is back in action, and he will continue to kill unless McBride can stop him. And yet justice comes with a price. McBride's hunger for vengeance will push him to the very edge, testing his capacity for mercy in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse that will reach into the highest levels of the US government.
Praise for North! Or Be Eaten "Peterson deserves every literary prize for this fine book. It is obvious that his musical talents have been put to good use as his use of words, plot and narrative read like a well scored film script. A very fine book, by a very fine writer and future talent. Amazing - thrilling and well worth reading again and again." G. P. Taylor,New York Timesbest-selling author ofShadowmancerand The Dopple Ganger Chronicles "Toothy cows are very dangerous. Andrew Peterson convinced me and shivers run down my spine at the very thought of meeting a toothy cow face to face. The author spills characters like Podo and Nurgabog onto the page, then weaves a tale of danger that holds the reader captive. Believe me, you will relish being held captive by this master storyteller. But be sure you don't get caught by the Stranders. Those people just ain't civilized." Donita K. Paul, author ofThe Vanishing Sculptor "In a genre overrun by the gory and the grim, Peterson's bite-sized chapters taste more like a stew ofGorey (Edward)andGrimm (the Brothers).North! Or Be Eatenis a welcome feast of levity--and clearly alabor of love.Andrew Peterson has awakened my inner eight-year-old, and that is a very good thing. " Jeffrey Overstreet,author ofAuralia's ColorsandCyndere's Midnight "An immensely clever tale from a wonderful storyteller - filled with great values and even greater adventure!" Phil Vischer, creator ofVeggieTales "Thrills, chills, spine-tingling mystery, and lots of smiles. It's not easy to combine heart-pounding danger with gut-busting laughs and make it work, but Peterson pulls it off. For readers who want nonstop action infused with powerful, life-changing themes,North! Or Be Eatenis a must-read." Wayne Thomas Batson, best-selling author of The Door Within Trilogy, Isle of SwordsandIsle of Fire "Andrew Peterson is a gifted storyteller, scene painter and wordsmith who takes you on a rollicking white-water ride of adventure. Readers of all ages are sure to findNorth! Or Be Eatenworthy of a big mug filled with a favorite beverage and a cozy nook near a crackling fire for hours on end. Here there be tales within yarns within stories. Listen, reader, bend your ear, but keep an eye peeled lest the dreaded Fangs of Dang be near!" R. K.

This lecture presents a modern approach for the computation of Mathieu functions. These functions find application in boundary value analysis such as electromagnetic scattering from elliptic cylinders and flat strips, as well as the analogous acoustic and optical problems, and many other applications in science and engineering. The authors review the traditional approach used for these functions, show its limitations, and provide an alternative "tuned" approach enabling improved accuracy and convergence. The performance of this approach is investigated for a wide range of parameters and machine precision. Examples from electromagnetic scattering are provided for illustration and to show the convergence of the typical series that employ Mathieu functions for boundary value analysis. Table of Contents: Introduction / Mathieu Functions / Observed Accuracy Using Traditional and Tuned Methods / Recommended Algorithm for Mathieu Function Computation / Electromagnetic Scattering from Conducting Elliptic Cylinders / Electromagnetic Scattering from an Infinite Conducting Strip / References / Authors' Biographies
Once, in a cottage above the cliffs on the Dark Sea of Darkness,
there lived three children and their trusty dog Nugget. Janner
Igiby, his brother Tink, their crippled sister Leeli are gifted
children as all children are, loved well by a noble mother and
ex-pirate grandfather. But they will need all their gifts and all
that love to survive the evil pursuit of the venomous Fangs of Dang
who have crossed the dark sea to rule the land with malice and
pursue the Igibys who hold the secret to the lost legend and jewels
of good King Wingfeather of the Shining Isle of Anniera.
This lecture provides a tutorial introduction to the Nystrom and locally-corrected Nystrom methods when used for the numerical solutions of the common integral equations of two-dimensional electromagnetic fields. These equations exhibit kernel singularities that complicate their numerical solution. Classical and generalized Gaussian quadrature rules are reviewed. The traditional Nystrom method is summarized, and applied to the magnetic field equation for illustration. To obtain high order accuracy in the numerical results, the locally-corrected Nystrom method is developed and applied to both the electric field and magnetic field equations. In the presence of target edges, where current or charge density singularities occur, the method must be extended through the use of appropriate singular basis functions and special quadrature rules. This extension is also described. Table of Contents: Introduction / Classical Quadrature Rules / The Classical Nystrom Method / The Locally-Corrected Nystrom Method / Generalized Gaussian Quadrature / LCN Treatment of Edge Singularities
The Next Ten Minutes provides practical and entertaining ways to rethink the everyday and experience the transformative power of the present moment-turning mundane activities into meditative opportunities for self-awareness and personal growth. The desire to discover meaning in our lives is a powerful motivator for many people. Some turn to psychotherapy and counseling for help, some turn to spiritual teachings, and many turn to both. The Next Ten Minutes is the guide to help us discover the seeds of transformation and meaning in even the most ordinary routines. The Next Ten Minutes consists of a collection of exercises originally created for use in Dr. Peterson's successful counseling practice. Rather than taking readers out of the everyday, Dr. Peterson invites them to move more deeply into the familiar tasks of ordinary life, such as turning simple breathing, eating, physical love, or throwing out the trash into meditative exercises that can transform your day. Based on both Buddhist philosophy and proven psychology techniques, these succinct and accessible meditations also offer simple and effective methods for therapeutic counseling and personal growth. The power to seize the day is but a few simple steps away.
Nathan McBride leads a secretive life. The ex-CIA agent doesn't give out his phone number and never reveals his operative name. So how does a twelve-year-old girl whom he's never met know both?
The girl's name is Lauren, and after she's been kidnapped, she sends a text for help to Nathan's cell phone. Nathan rescues her, but with the kidnappers hell-bent on reclaiming their prize, the ordeal has only just begun.
As he tries to stay one step ahead of their pursuers, Nathan soon learns that Lauren harbors secrets of her own; she's in the federal witness security program, and her mother made her memorize Nathan's phone number in the event of an emergency. Does Lauren hold a key piece of information that her kidnappers desperately need? Or is she a pawn in an elaborate setup?
The third book in the Nathan McBride series, "Option to Kill" is an exhilarating, adrenaline-charged ride.

Now he owns a private security company, his scarred visage a warning to anyone who dares cross his path. When a deep-cover federal agent vanishes ? along with a ton of Semtex explosives ? McBride is the only man former FBI director Frank Ortega trusts to hunt him down. The catch? The missing agent is Ortega's grandson. And this mission is completely off the books. McBride is on his own?and that's just the way he likes it. McBride realizes, though, that there's more at stake than just one man's life when he finds himself caught between a ruthless adversary hell-bent on revenge and a group of high-ranking feds pursuing their own brand of justice. In this game, no one is playing by the rules?

Civics and Citizenship Education in Australia provides a comprehensive analysis of teaching and learning in this field in Australian schools, drawing on case study material to demonstrate the current practice in the field. Reflecting on the issues and possibilities raised by the inclusion of civics and citizenship education in the new national Australian curriculum, leading national and international scholars analyse the subject's theoretical, curricular and pedagogical bases and approaches. Placing civics and citizenship education within historical and contemporary contexts, the book critically explores a range of issues concerning the development, organisation and teaching of the subject. These include how the subject might include indigenous, global and Asian perspectives, and how it may help students to engage with issues around sustainability, active citizenship, diversity, religion and values. The final chapters written by scholars from England, the USA, Canada, Hong Kong and Singapore adopt a comparative approach situating Australian civics and citizenship education in the wider international context.
Bestselling author Andrew Peterson is back with a heart-stopping fourth installment of his wildly popular Nathan McBride series.
When a mysterious note referencing a top-secret US operation is tossed over the wall of the embassy in Nicaragua, Nathan McBride and his old pal Harv are called out of retirement by CIA Director Rebecca Cantrell and sent to Central America. Cantrell wants the situation resolved quickly and knows that Nathan is the man to do it; after all, he has a history with the place. The jungle he and Harv are about to land in is the same one that Nathan barely escaped with his life decades before, an ordeal that left him physically and psychologically scarred. To make it out alive a second time, Nathan will have to face down his own demons and square off with a ruthless killer who learned from the best, Nathan himself.
