"Every time I feel sad or wish my brother was here to hug me, no matter where I am, I hear his favorite song on the radio."
More than one hundred million Americans claim to have had contact with the dead through deathbed visions, dream visitations, and otherwise inexplicable lifesaving premonitions. Is it possible to bridge the gap between our world and the hereafter and make contact with departed family and friends?
In this groundbreaking work, authors Joel Martin and Patricia Romanowski share the dramatic firsthand testimonies of men and women who have connected with loved ones who have passed over.

This comprehensive book thoroughly addresses every aspect of Independent Medical Evaluations, an important part of many medical specialty disciplines where forensic opinions are needed by patients, physicians, insurers, and attorneys. Independent Medical Evaluation: A Practical Guide begins by defining the IME product and the IME evaluator themselves, explaining the medicolegal systems, and providing guidance towards establishing these professional services. Following this, the book describes how to best use medical records, and best-practices for taking an IME history and conducting an examination. The final few chapters cover developing an IME report, the common challenges and pitfalls encountered, with strategies and pearls shared to illustrate how to avoid them. Structured in a concise, practical format, this essential guide includes a large selection of sample models and templates, for additional teaching purposes. The first of its kind, Independent Medical Evaluation: A Practical Guide is a unique and ideal reference text for any physician working with IME's, from the physician conducting their first exam, to the experienced physician alike.
This volume contains papers presented at Symposium HH 'Nanocomposites, Nanostructures and Heterostructures of Correlated Oxide Systems' held in San Francisco, California, April 9-13, 2012, during the JSAP-MRS Joint Spring Meeting (JSAP: Japan Society of Applied Physics). Future electronics will increasingly rely on oxide materials because of their unique functionalities. Advances in the synthesis and characterisation of oxide thin films and nanostructures have brought about the observation of exciting new materials phenomena. The parallel fields of oxide heteroepitaxy and nanomaterials both exploit surfaces, interfaces and boundaries in materials to achieve better performance and new properties. Core to both fields is the ability to control these structures at unprecedented atomic levels. Because of these common themes in this Symposium, researchers from both communities were brought together to identify and illuminate new areas of interaction and collaboration.
This fascinating cultural and intellectual history focuses on education as practiced by the imperial age Romans, looking at what they considered the value of education and its effect on children. W. Martin Bloomer details the processes, exercises, claims, and contexts of liberal education from the late first century BCE to the third century CE--the epoch of rhetorical education. He examines the adaptation of Greek institutions, methods, and texts by the Romans, and traces the Romans' own history of education. Bloomer argues that while Rome's enduring educational legacy includes the seven liberal arts and a canon of school texts, its practice of competitive displays of reading, writing, and reciting were intended to instill in the young social as well as intellectual ideas.
The Reflective Museum Practitioner explores a range of expansive and creative ways in which the concept of "reflective practice" has been applied in the informal STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) learning environments of museums and zoos. It seeks to demonstrate how such a process can inspire lifelong learning in practitioners, to the benefit of practitioners and visitors alike. Presenting six projects that employed reflective practice, the contributors examine how each project has encouraged and sustained reflection, and the outcomes thereof. The projects cover a wide range of different practitioners-including administrators, scientists, educators, and other front-line and back-room staff-who work at different junctures of their organizations. Collectively, they raise key questions about changing communities of practice in Informal Science Learning institutions. The projects and concept of "reflective practice" are fully defined and contextualized by the editors, who offer in-depth analysis, along with a cultural-historical activity theory framework, for understanding how changes in museum practice unfold in an institutional context. The Reflective Museum Practitioner offers museum professionals insight into "reflective practice," as practiced by other institutions in their sector, providing practical examples that can be adapted to their needs. It will also be of interest to scholars and students focusing on science museums, or professional practice development in museums.
The iconic American banana man of the early twentieth century-the white "banana cowboy" pushing the edges of a tropical frontier-was the product of the corporate colonialism embodied by the United Fruit Company. This study of the United Fruit Company shows how the business depended on these complicated employees, especially on acclimatizing them to life as tropical Americans.

The operas of Giuseppe Verdi stand at the center of today's operatic repertoire, and have done so for more than a century. The story of how the reputation and wide appeal of these operas spread from Western Europe throughout the world has long needed to be told. This latest book by noted Verdi authority George W. Martin, Verdi in America: Oberto through Rigoletto, specifically details the changing fortunes of Verdi's early operas in the theaters and concert halls of the United States. Among the important works whose fates Martin traces are Nabucco, Attila, Ernani, Macbeth (in its original version), Luisa Miller, and one of Verdi's immortal masterpieces: Rigoletto, denounced in 1860 as the epitome of immorality. Martin also explores the astonishing revival of many of these operas in the 1940s and onward (including Macbeth in its revised version of 1865), and the first American productions-sometimes in small opera houses outside the main circuit of some Verdi operas that had never previously managed to cross the Atlantic. Extensive quotations from newspaper reviews testify to the eventual triumph of these remarkable works. They also reveal the crucial shifts in tastes and expectations that have occurred from Verdi's day to our own. Independent scholar George W. Martin is the author of several books on Italian opera, including Verdi, His Music, Life and Times, Verdi at the Golden Gate: Opera and San Francisco in the Gold Rush Years, and Aspects of Verdi.
