Since the first description of Philadelphia chromosome-negative chronic myeloproliferative disorders more than 100 years ago, the diagnosis and therapy of these conditions have been based primarily on clinical experience and judgement. Until recently very little was known about the molecular basis of these diseases. In order to spark research in this area basic scientists and clinicians from various parts of the world have contributed to this volume, the first of its kind to put together the current knowledge. The book deals with the new WHO classification of these disorders, novel aspects of diagnostic pathology, the search for disease-relevant genes utilizing molecular biology and proteomic techniques, the description of the roles of PVR-1 and VHL genes for polycythemias and the discovery of the gene mutation responsible for the idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome. A chapter on anagrelide, an important novel drug for the treatment of primary thrombocythemia, is included.

n this book we’re going to cover the topic of Sexual Astrology and its application
within your everyday life. In the past Astrology has dealt mostly with characterizing
a person, based on their sun and moon signs or other astrological factors.
However, modern astrology has become so advanced, that it now has the means
to target specific issues within an individual’s life. The issue’s of sex and intimacy
is a strong one. Is there anybody out there who wouldn’t like the sexual “411” of
that special someone – The ability to learn how to better satisfy and be satisfied
based on a birth date and year? Such is a powerful tool! This information is
more than entertaining, but also in-depth and accurate in its application of
astrology. This volume promises to give you all that and more.
* Is a Cancer woman more prone to experience and try new things sexually than a Pieces woman?
* What turns on a Capricorn male as opposed to a Taurus?
* What turns a Cancer woman off?

What You Should Know
NOTE PADS: At the end of each section you will find a note pad. Use these
pages to make note of any ideas that may arise as you read.
**About Charts and Illustrations**
Hot Spots: At the end of each section is a human diagram that shows the hot
spots of each sign. These points demonstrate the most sensitive and erotic
nerve endings. You can’t go wrong here; simply follow the path to pleasure:
Sex Chart: Here you have the male and female of each sign placed within a point
scale, that shows their level of sexuality in a particular area (example: kinkiness). If
one scores a 0, it is safe to say that they have no desire points in that area. A (1)
shows them to have little to none in the interest department. A (2) is a sign of
potential, indicating them to be a little more aggressive in that particular area. A (3)
indicates a more extreme aggression, liking, or capability in the specified area.
Please note that if you have a (3) in Dominant (behavior) and a (3) in Submissive
(behavior) this would indicate a Balance of preference. The individual would be
inclined, more so, to go either way. Sometimes it will take some persuasion on your
part, while other times it may come natural to them. The sex chart includes all of the
Dominant: Leaning towards the aggressive, controlling, sometimes marked by a fetish of domination, play-whips and chains included.
Submissive: Leaning towards the passive, obedient, sometimes marked by a desire to be controlled.
Open Minded: Willing to explore, considerate of your sexual state.
Changeable: Shows the potential for a change in sexual taste and patterns.
Kinky: Marked by an unusual to personal taste in a certain sexual fetish or fetishes.
Hot Natured: Marked by ones sexual heat, passion and aggression.
Inhibited: One who has self-placed limitations on their sexual ability and desires. This can be self-motivated or influenced from the outside.
Uninhibited: Of course this would be quite the opposite of the above. The higher the score the more comfortable they are with their sexual natures.
Possessive: Marked by jealousy and dependency, clinging in nature.
Promiscuity: Marked by ones discretion in the type of sex partners or numbers. This is the defining point of fidelity and infidelity.
"Once I discovered the art of astrology there was no turning back! I am a realist so I had to first convince myself that astrology was not simply entertainment. I found out that it was entertainment and some. I then began to become an unofficial champion of astrology. I began to study the more in-depth aspects of astrology, and shortly thereafter moved on to working with birth and natal charts. I debated the doubters with statistics and elements they
Autoimmunity, characterized by autoreactive lymphocytes and autoantibodies, is the consequence of a failure to discriminate between self and non-self, and autoimmune diseases are an increasing threat to people living in the industrialized countries. Autoimmune disorders are treatable, but not curable, and patients can face disability at later stages of the disease. Thus, there is a medical and economic need for new concepts and treatments in autoimmune disorders. New concepts and treatments can only be achieved by an interdisciplinary approach bringing together expertise, technologies, and clinical experience. The workshop focused on multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and type I diabetes, and discussed conventional drug therapies, gene therapy, cell and tissue transplantation therapies, and first treatments using blood stem cells for reprogramming the patients' immune system.

"Emergency Department Treatment of the Psychiatric Patient is a marvelous work. It shows us the ED through the eyes of the patient. Even more important, it shows us how rules and procedures can be set up that help ED personnel to respect and support people with mental illness during what are often their worst moments. This book should be read by everyone who works with people with mental illness."--Charles W. Lidz, Ph.D., Research Professor of Psychiatry, Director, Center for Mental Health Services Research, University of Massachusetts Medical School
"Although more by default than design, hospital emergency departments have become settings where the nation's failures in addressing the needs of people who have mental illnesses are routinely played out. For many of these individuals, the emergency department has come to represent less a safe haven and a gateway to care than yet another affirmation of how a "mental patient" is an unwanted burden. Ms. Stefan's thoughtful analysis of this scenario and recommendations for improvements make Emergency Department Treatment of the Psychiatric Patient essential reading for anyone concerned about the disjuncture between physical and mental healthcare and the nation's urgent need for meaningful reform."--Robert Bernstein, Ph.D., Executive Director, Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law
"Emergency Department Treatment of the Psychiatric Patient includes a set of valuable proposals by experts for standards of care for emergency mental health treatment. As an overview of current conditions and futures directions, [this] book will serve as a valuable handbook and reference handbook for clinicians who work in emergency settings, for emergency room physicians, for health planners, and for attorneys and other advocates who work with persons with serious mental illness."-- Robert M. Factor, M.D., Ph.D., Medical Director, Emergency Services, Mental Health Center of Dane County
"...a concise yet comprehensive discussion of these various problems and challenges from both a macro and micro level...it is an excellent work...appropriately organized and clearly written and consider it a must-read for health care professionals across disciplines who practice in the area of emergency medicine."--PsycCRITIQUES
The Story of the Donner Party
Peter R. Limburg
The year is 1846, long before the transcontinental railroad. You are a member of a wagon train heading west for California. You are running a couple of weeks behind schedule, but the experts tell you that you can still get across the Sierra Nevada mountain range before the pass is blocked by snow—if you don’t get delayed further. Midway in the journey, in Indian country, you are asked to join a group of wagons that is going to take a new cutoff that is said to save two weeks of travel time. The cutoff has never been tried by wagons before. What would you do?
You join these hopeful travelers and elect George Donner as your leader. From now on your group will be known as the Donner Party. After weeks of grueling travel and mishaps, including the loss of most of the oxen and some wagons, you come to the backbone of the dreaded Sierras. You have lost precious weeks on the cutoff. There is fairly deep snow on the ground already, but it is still possible to get through—if you hurry. But the exhausted oxen cannot pull the wagons up the nearly vertical, trackless cliffs that block the way. You, like the others, must struggle up on foot, abandoning most of your possessions. You reach the pass at nightfall. Some urge pushing ahead and making camp on the far side. The majority say they are too exhausted, and refuse to go on. What would you do?
Snow falls that night; in the morning the pass is hopelessly blocked. You and your fellow travelers return to the lake at the foot of the ridge and make camp. There is no game to hunt, and the remaining oxen are lost in another snowstorm. People are growing weak from hunger and malnutrition. A group of the younger and fitter people set off to cross the pass on snowshoes and bring help from Sutter’s Fort. Weeks pass, and no help arrives. People are dying now, and the food supplies are nearly exhausted. Someone suggests that you try to survive by eating the flesh of those who have died. What would you do?
For the people of the Donner Party, these were not academic questions. Deceived is their true and tragic story, the story of a hopeful dream turned into horror and disaster. They lived it—or died in it.

Mark A. Noll is one of our leading historians of religion. . . . [God and Race in American Politics] tells us a lot about how we talk about God in politics, yesterday and today. As he does so often, Noll here writes serenely about volatile subjects. -- Martin E. Marty, Chronicle of Higher Education
[Noll] has produced yet another admirable synthesis of a huge body of American history and historiography. . . . [T]houghtful Christian readers will find this work indispensable in understanding the big picture of race, religion, and politics in American history. -- Paul Harvey, Christianity Today
Noll's incisive history offers a significant introduction to the tangled relationship of race, religion, and politics in America. -- Henry L. Carrigan, Jr., Foreword
[T]his work is just the sort of introduction that those unfamiliar with the contours of politics, race and religion need. . . . Concerning the struggle for civil rights, Noll makes a powerful argument. While acknowledging the importance of the courts and community organizing, he aptly points out that religion was the indispensable foundation of the civil rights movement. The conviction that God was on the side of the black freedom struggle was powerful. -- Randall J. Stephens, Christian Century
[Noll's] work will be a must read for scholars of U.S. religious and political history. -- Choice
With the self-assurance of a skilled painter, Noll applies a series of brushstrokes that define five political alignments, each influenced by the comparative strength of the state, the market, and religion. . . . Noll's is a tragic vision but one that nevertheless brings welcome clarity to the nation's primary moral dilemma. -- Andrew Rojecki, Journal of Church History
God and Race in American Politics offers an in-depth view of the way religion has influenced politics and discourse on race and social justice throughout U.S. history. Based on a series of lectures he gave at Princeton in 2006, Noll supports his thesis with a very large body of relevant work and deftly elucidates the notion that opposing appeals to Biblical truth have created complex and, in some cases, contradictory religious and moral ideas. -- Peter Lamal, The Humanist
In this important book, Mark Noll, one of the most influential historians of American religion writing today, traces the explosive political effects of the religious intermingling with race. -- Spartacus Review
God and Race in American Politics contributes an enlightening historical analysis. . . . It is written with forceful yet well-balanced argument fully achieving its main objective. . . . It serves as a generous, informative guide for a wide readership, finding an audience in the general public as well as culture and religion historians and political scientists. -- Adriana Neagu, American, British and Canadian Studies
Noll's book is . . . a useful and astutely informed reading of foundational issues and themes that are essential to understanding historic and contemporary race and politics in American religion. -- Sylvester A. Johnson, Journal of American History
Mark Noll's brief but incredibly insightful survey of God and Race in American Politics offers one of the most significant analyses of race and religion in American political history. . . . Knoll's analysis of these most complicated issues in American history reveals a narrative of often contradicting religious and moral complexities. He wrestles with his subject, not shying away from this difficult assignment, with moral dexterity, skillful analysis, and solid historic research. Knoll has provided much food for thought. -- Trevor O'Reggio, Andrew's University Seminary Studies
The book succeeds admirably as a study of the parallels between religious opinions, electoral strategies, and orientations to state power. Its successes invite further consideration of the messy, embodied modes by which religio-racial identities are enacted and destabilized, and of the role of churches as counterpublics. . . . To acknowledge this is not to overlook the book's power as historical narrative. Rather, that Noll's book gives rise to such questions is an indication of its suggestiveness. -- Jason C. Bivins, Journal of Religion

Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) was discovered in the 1970s and has since grown enormously in breadth, depth, and understanding. One of the major characteristics of SERS is its interdisciplinary nature: it lies at the boundary between physics, chemistry, colloid science, plasmonics, nanotechnology, and biology. By their very nature, it is impossible to find a textbook that will summarize the principles needed for SERS of these rather dissimilar and disconnected topics. Although a basic understanding of these topics is necessary for research projects in SERS with all its many aspects and applications, they are seldom touched upon as a coherent unit during most undergraduate studies in physics or chemistry. This book intends to fill this existing gap in the literature. It provides an overview of the underlying principles of SERS, from the fundamental understanding of the effect to its potential applications. It is aimed primarily at newcomers to the field, graduate student, researcher or scientist, attracted by the many applications of SERS and plasmonics or its basic science. The emphasis is on concepts and background material for SERS, such as Raman spectroscopy, the physics of plasmons, or colloid science, all of them introduced within the context of SERS, and from where the more specialised literature can be followed.
* Represents one of very few books fully dedicated to the topic of surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS)
* Gives a comprehensive summary of the underlying physical concepts around SERS
* Provides a detailed analysis of plasmons and plasmonics
A summation of the teachings of Master Hua-Ching Ni by his sons, Mao Shing and Daoshing. "Our father has often stated that The Integral Way is not Taoism. It is the cream gathered from millions of years of human life experience and activity." We find our own Golden Message by applying ourselves to gold, diamond, crystal, pearl, and jade self-study and correspondence courses. Learn how to become a student, how to become a teacher, and how to become a follower of The Integral Way.
Here is a gold mine for the preacher, the teacher and the father and mother in the home who have it in mind to inculcate sound teaching, based upon the Word of God, so that the boys and girls of the congregations, Sunday-Schools and households may be thoroughly rooted and grounded in the essentials of the Christian faith. There are many volumes in this series of short addresses and they cover the entire range of the Holy Scriptures, from Genesis to Revelation. The material gathered here is fresh and varied and there is just enough of it to furnish the groundwork of the preacher's sermon, the Sunday school teacher's talk and the parent's reading and comment.

"A wonderful multi-disciplinary romp through a very crucial transition period in the history of American biology." Barbara Kimmelman, Philadelphia University
"McGinity's story has great poignancy. Still Jewish demonstrates how, from insular beginnings surrounded by anti-Semitism to a world of inevitable intermarriage, Jewish women with gentile partners negotiated a new way to be Jewish in America."
"If you thought there was nothing new to say about Jews and intermarriage, think again. McGinity’s well-researched study focuses on American Jewish women who intermarried during the twentieth century and demonstrates that many of them not only remained Jewish but, paradoxically, became more Jewish, perhaps in response to the challenge of having a non-Jewish spouse. An invaluable addition to the scant scholarly literature on intermarriage, this volume shows that in intermarriage, as in so much else, gender matters."
- Jonathan D. Sarna, author of American Judaism: A History
"This compelling, impeccably researched book should make a huge difference in how we understand the contentious issue of intermarriage in the Jewish community. By putting Jewish women into the center of the story, McGinity offers a fresh perspective that challenges standard interpretations. It is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of Jewish life in America as well as for all those concerned with present-day patterns, policies, and outreach programs."
- Joyce Antler, Samuel Lane Professor of American Jewish History and Culture at Brandeis University
“Still Jewish is a fascinating read for those interested in Jewish history or women’s history as well as for those concerned about the future of the Jewish community.”
- Jerusalem Post
In the context of the current financial crisis, and at a time of deep global change, growing attention is paid to the global norms and ethical values that could underpin future global policy. Water is a key global resource. At the 3rd Marcelino Botin Foundation Water Workshop, held in Santander, Spain, June 12-14, 2007, the role of ethics in the deep roots, values, and the potential commonalities of the global water policy were discussed.
Experts from different cultural, geographic and religious backgrounds considered the different ethical points of view to enhance the debate on how ethical considerations can play a more significant and explicit role in water development and management.
Common ground for all contributing authors was considered to be the UN Declaration of 1948, and more specifically the basic aspects related to water ethics: 1. the dignity of every human being and 2. the necessity of solidarity among all human beings.
The book is divided in 8 sections which correspond to the papers presented at the Workshop:
Some Cultural Traditional Approaches on Water Ethics
Some Ethical Aspects of New Water Management
Water as a Human Right and as an Economic Resource
Water and Poverty
Groundwater Use and its Ethical Aspects
Ethics of Water Ownership and Management
Corruption, Transparency and Participation in the Water Sector
Ethical Aspects of Unforeseen and Extreme Events Management such as Floods and Droughts

The Ideas are the main message, the content of the piece, the main theme, together with all the supporting details that enrich and develop that theme. The ideas are strong when the message is clear, not garbled. The writer chooses details that are interesting, important, and informative–often the kinds of details the reader would not normally anticipate or predict.
Successful writers do not "tell" readers things they already know; e.g., "It was a sunny day, and the sky was blue, the clouds were fluffy white …" ...

Anderson (The Movement and the Sixties), a history professor at Texas A&M, offers a straightforward political history of affirmative action. He traces the genesis of the policy to the Roosevelt and Truman administrations, which made efforts at nondiscrimination in public works projects and the military. The Civil Rights movement birthed the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission as well as lingering questions about how to prove discrimination, how to enforce antidiscrimination orders and whether preferences were needed to overcome past discrimination. The zenith of affirmative action, it turns out, came under Richard Nixon, whose secretary of labor, George Shultz, required federal contractors to set goals and targets for minority employment. The concept soon wound up in the courts, and Anderson provides good summaries of relevant cases, from the 1978 Bakke decision to last year's cases involving the University of Michigan. The backlash began in the 1980s, under Ronald Reagan, as enforcement lagged and the Justice Department sought cases to curtail affirmative action. In the 1990s, the rhetoric shifted to "diversity," an easier concept for politicians to embrace, and university systems in California and Texas were forced to give up preferences. (The winners at select universities: Asians.) Many cities and businesses have institutionalized the policy, and affirmative action has created a very different workplace in 40 yearswith little damage to firm competitiveness or fair employment practices, says the author. Still, Anderson concludes by acknowledging a host of questions about whom the policy should help. Though Anderson aims at an evenhanded tone, he could have paid more attention to notable polemics on this topic. He omits examination of affirmative action programs in the U.S. military and would have done well to at least note some international experiences. Photos not seen by PW.
