This book provides easily accessible technique specific information on interventional radiology (IR) procedures at a basic level for medical students and junior doctors. It covers subject topics in both vascular and non-vascular interventional radiology appropriate for a non-specialist audience. Case based contents help to introduce IR techniques and demonstrate the role of minimally invasive therapy in the overall clinical management. Pre and post-procedural patient assessments are also included in the chapters to enhance patient safety and early detection of complications. Interventional Radiology treatments now play a major role in many disease processes and continues to grow with new procedures added to the armamentarium of the interventional radiologist, almost on a yearly basis. Interventional radiology because of its pivotal role in medical care, requires its own teaching curriculum. Recognising this, the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Society of Europe (CIRSE) devised an undergraduate curriculum in IR, specifically designed for teaching medical students. This book will be primarily of benefit to medical students. In addition, it will also be of help to non-radiology junior hospital doctors and general practitioners.
This volume gives scholars and students a working knowledge of the procedures, challenges, and benefits of using photo methods in their ethnographic work through studies by researchers who are currently using it. The studies are both examples of exemplary scholarship and serve as tutorials on the procedures and methodological considerations of using this personal, even intimate, method. These eight authors were asked to re-open their carefully packed-away studies, disassemble the methods and the findings, and reflect on the contents. Like looking through old photo albums, these reflective essays allowed us to have new conversations with different audiences. Each chapter contains sections that penetratingly explain the research problem, describe why photo methods were used for the study, elucidate and reflect on the method, summarize the findings, and then examine participant empowerment through the method. This unique structure is specifically designed to be used in masters and doctoral classrooms and with researchers looking for new methods or to strengthen their existing work. The editors and authors believe that using photo-methods can empower participants to become part of the research process. Each author uses photo with the same goal; to create rigorous science that has meaning for the participants.

Some of the greatest scientists, philosophers, and historians of all time have advocated the concept of causality, or cause and effect, the idea that we live in a universe in which every effect has a root cause and nothing happens purely by chance. Michael Lee believes that these causal factors - the drivers of change - present challenges for society, and that by studying the possible outcomes of these challenges we can understand, foresee and model the world of tomorrow. In Codebreaking our future he examines the structural foundations of modern society and provides an overview of the four major challenges that will dominate causal change in this century. Drawing on centuries of classic academic research as well as examples from contemporary scientists, demographers and trend-watchers, Codebreaking our future establishes the methods for predicting the future by studying the causal drivers of all change.

The best martial artists know what they want when they enter the arena, they know how to get it, and they're not afraid to go after it. The same could be said of great negotiators. This book uses the principles of martial arts to guide readers step-by-step, from basic techniques through advanced strategies, all the way to achieving their "black belt" in negotiating. Packed with quizzes, scripts, checklists, and even a Negotiating Rating Sheet for continual self-assessment, the book trains readers in martial arts-based negotiation fundamentals, including: * Don't Fear the Blow -- Black belts aren't afraid of being hit or they would never step onto the mat. Get over your fear of bargaining, and the fight is already won. * Identify Vital Striking Points -- Weaken others' positions by identifying what's most important to them...and bring down even the biggest opponent. * Read Your Opponent -- Counter an opponent's moves by honing in on what technique they're using -- and hit them with the perfect response. Grounded in authentic martial arts tactics, this book turns novice bargainers into black belt negotiators who can get whatever they want out of any situation.
Christianity Today Book Award Winner Regarding gender relations, the evangelical world is divided between complementarians and egalitarians. While both perspectives have much to contribute, the discussion has reached a stalemate.

The book includes a foreword by Craig L. Blomberg and an afterword by Lynn H. Cohick.
Texas, home to more than 1.7 million living veterans (the second largest number of any state), is also home to six nationally run and four state-run veterans cemeteries. Each year, more than 12,000 veterans are laid to rest in these hallowed grounds. The Veterans Cemeteries of Texas recounts the stories of these ten official final resting places for Texas veterans, creating-for the first time-a complete guide to these solemn bivouacs of the dead. Author Michael Lee Lanning, a US Army veteran, has not only reconstructed the history of these cemeteries as a tribute to the fallen but has also compiled a useful resource for the living. Lanning details the exact locations, eligibility requirements, and contact information throughout the state for those veterans and their families who might choose to make use of these important public services. Richly illustrated, the book also provides moving descriptions of military burial traditions, such as "Taps" and the 21-gun salute, as well as information about the various types of military headstones (including sixty authorized religious symbols). In the author's words, "A walk through these burial grounds is a journey across the history of Texas and of the United States." Lanning's use of more than 100 captivating photographs, along with his compelling text, allows readers to take that walk through veterans cemeteries in Texas. For lovers of Texas history and military history, The Veterans Cemeteries of Texas is a gripping tribute to past, present, and future Texas veterans and the solemn places where they rest in their last formation and final parade.
