Who doesn’t want to be rich . . . or at least more financially secure
than they are now? As Gertrude Stein once famously said, “I’ve been
rich and I’ve been poor. It’s better to be rich.”
And so have I. From dead broke to worse. And then from okay to
affluent to more-than-enough.
This book is my attempt to come to terms with the country I love.
I fi rst came here in September of 1958. I had worked my way over
as a dish washer on the passenger ship Arosa Sky. We steamed into
New York harbor. I saw the Statue of Liberty. Someone met me at
the dock and took me to the Trailways depot to put me on a bus to
Austin, Texas. Did I want a return ticket, valid for a year? I said yes.
The man at the window began to write the ticket. I thought about it
and said to my guide: No, one...
Both arts and sciences and public health should share in fostering and developing an educated citizenry. Such
citizens should be able to recognize the spectrum of global health challenges and exercise intellectual and
practical skills in response. As LEAP recommends, well-educated citizens ought to be prepared to accept
personal and social responsibility and demonstrate capacity to synthesize, integrate, and apply their learning.
The decision-making process is at the core of ethics and medicine. Family physicians in
residency training spend three years learning to make decisions with, for and about
patients and their health care. Most of these daily decisions have potential ethical
implications. Competent family physicians must be able to recognize the ethical
considerations in the care of patients in both in- and out-patient settings.
Success in writing and winning grants comes through practice-based effort,
sustained enthusiasm, tenacity, and a commitment to turn temporary set-
backs (i.e., proposal rejections) into renewed efforts and grant awards.
Few educators or librarians begin their professional careers prepared to par-
ticipate in the grant seeking process. As their careers evolve, they recognize
and understand economic realities. Without supplemental funding, schools
and their media centers are often forced to choose between essential and

Thank you for taking the time to look over eBay Timesaving
Techniques For Dummies, my latest For Dummies book about eBay.
This book is loaded with advanced tricks, effective methods, and
clever tidbits of information aimed at helping you take better advantage
of your time and potential on eBay. When you started out on eBay, you
may have had the inkling that perhaps you could actually earn a living on
the site. Then reality set in, and you recognized how all the facets of buying
and selling on eBay take a bit more work than you previously
expected. Of course they do!...
Since the issue of urban poverty cuts at the heart of social policy in the United States, it
is not surprising that ideology plays a substantial role in many of the debates about it. The
hypotheses often reflect ideological, as well as empirical, social science debates. This is
unavoidable. Nonetheless, the focal point of this article is not on ideology but rather on
what may reasonably be claimed to be known about inner-city poverty. Ideology may
well be critical to the decision about what to believe and what policies are to be preferred.
This book describes the object-oriented (OO) paradigm, a development
strategy based on the concept that systems should be built from a collection
of reusable components called objects. Instead of separating data and
functionality, as is done in the structured paradigm, objects encompass
both. While the object-oriented paradigm sounds similar to the structured
paradigm, as you will see in this book, it is actually quite different.
We want to acknowledge first the forebears of these books, the men and
women who across many thousands of years have descended into dark
caves, led community rituals, and explored consciousness-altering plants
in order to encounter anew the world and their selves. We recognize our
pioneers in Plato in the West, Pantanjali in the East, and other exemplars
of first-rate intellects who laid the groundwork for integrating the insights
of alterations of consciousness into our views of reality.
Reproductive rights are internationally recognized as critical both for advancing women’s human rights
and for promoting development. In recent years, governments from all over the world have acknowledged
and pledged to advance reproductive rights to an unprecedented degree.
We recognize many managers may not be able to pick and choose their team, but if at all possible, the first
practical step in building a collaborative team is selecting team members with the right attitude and complemen-
tary skills. Particularly, if the organization has not worked with XP before, the team members should be people
who are adaptable and willing to try new ways of working, although having a few non-believers can have its
advantages. In theory, XP teams have no experts – all developers work on all aspects. In reality, sometimes
experts are needed when the team...
The global economy is coming under growing pressure to pay for the restoration of
damaged environments. But this economic engine is being asked to help solve other
pressing problems at the same time. The challenge is to solve all of these problems in a
sustainable manner, so as to generate continuing development.
Despite ambiguities about definitions, there is now widespread support for sustainable
development principles within the business community.
A silent killer maneuvers just below the surface of almost all the
health issues that will lead to death and disease in the 21st century.
The U.S. population faces well-recognized health risks, including
chronic diseases, environmental degradation, and natural and manmade
disasters, but the silent killer is less diagnosed and remains
essentially untreated. The silent killer is low health literacy: the
reality that almost half of adults in the United States, over 90 million
people, struggle to find, understand, and correctly use health
This approach offers a vision of school education within which health education
seems to fit very well. The vision goes far beyond preparing young people to be
economically productive or simply seeing education as some form of specialized
training to meet government priorities. In many countries people recognize that
the wider ethos and social climate of the school is important as a context for learn-
ing in the classroom. This is compatible with a broad view of health and provides
opportunities to explore its social and mental health dimensions.
