Enter the world of the stylish Japanese house, where every object in sight is a work of art. Japan Style introduces 20 special residences. With more than 200 color photographs, this book showcases the stunning beauty of old homes, and reveals how they are cared for by their owners.
Traditional Japanese homes, with superbly crafted fine wood, great workmanship and seasonal interior arrangements, have an aesthetic of infinite simplicity. Unlike Japanese inns and historical buildings, the houses featured in this book are private property and are not open to public viewing.
GENERAL HUMAN CAPITAL AND SPECIALIZATION IN ACADEMIA The average income of their residents and the
rental price of housing, both endogenous, and the effectiveness of the local schools.21
An important omission is of all non-school exogenous amenities like beaches, parks,
views, and air quality. I develop here a best case for Tiebout choice, where schools are the
only factors in neighborhood desirability.
Our first-year residents — Drs. Jodi Hentscher-Johnson, Stephen Darmitzel,
Julie Olson, and Dustin Wilson — attended the Tweed Study Course in
Tucson Ariz., April 12–22. Many thanks to our alumni for providing financial
help for their trips.
Both classes attended the AAO meeting in Washington D.C. Funding from
the new Sperry Zervas Memorial Scholarship helped with travel expenses for
the second-year residents, all of whom presented cases at the CDABO Case
Display. Our second-year residents — Drs.
Emergency Planning is a critical component of every facility’s mission to provide a safe
environment for its residents, staff, patrons and visitors. The key to successful emergency
response lies in the details of preparedness. Generic (one-size fits all) guidelines for emergency
response are insufficient. Our safety in an emergency depends on the careful, detailed planning
and training that goes on well before an emergency occurs and that is specific to each facility.
In addition to its numerical representation, digital data has a physical representation. For
example, the bits in a hard disk are magnetic impulses on platters that can be read with analog
sensors. Network wires contain electric signals that represent network packets and keyboard cables
contain electric signals that represent which keys were pressed. A computer converts the electric
signals to a digital representation. Digital photography and video are a digital representation of
the light associated with physical objects.

Net capital gains reported by resident tax
filers climbed as high as $120 billion in 2000
(equal to 10.6 percent of personal income) and
$132 billion in 2007 (8.4 percent of personal
income), as shown in Figure 10. Such increases
were driven by “asset bubbles” in the stock
market and/or the real estate market. Net capital
gains fell to $29 billion in 2009 (1.9 percent of
personal income) before rising, along with the
recovery in the stock market, to $55 billion in
2010 (3.5 percent of personal income).
This work was a collaborative effort by volunteer professionals in the nuclear medicine
sciences in cooperation with the staffs of the Society of Nuclear Medicine (SNM) and the
Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). Alan H. Maurer, MD, was among those who first
proposed the need for such a volume, and it was through his organizational efforts that work
on the project began.
Approximately 50% of all nursing home residents, and 42% of residents living in assisted living programs have some form of dementia (Alzheimer Association 2007). It is strongly suggested that there be special training programs set up to inform the first responders as to specific needs, as well as specific actions, that should and should not be used with these citizens. The University of New Mexico has published a guide (Center for Development and Disability 2007) that addresses many of these issues in an easily used, bullet-point format to and provide specific guidance.
The level of education is expanding in the field of medical science, and the demand for cosmetic
surgeons in India is at an all time high. Cosmetic or aesthetic surgery is a fine tuned branch of
medicine and requires intensive training. After an MBBS degree ,students would have to pursue a
three-year Masters in Surgery (MS) degree and decide upon their area of specialization. The MS
degree involves a house job, a junior residency and a senior residency for one year each.
The authors of this book are American and European neurologists. This book is
termed a “neuromuscular atlas” and is designed to help in the diagnosis of
neuromuscular diseases at all levels of the peripheral nervous system. This book
is written for students, residents, physicians and neurologists who do not
specialize in neuromuscular diseases.
The first chapter describes the numerous tools used in the diagnosis of
neuromuscular disease. These include history taking, the physical examination,
laboratory values, electrophysiology, biopsy and genetics.
Life in cities—i.e., in organized human settlements, which are
mostly referred to as communities in this book—is possible only if
people have mobility1 on a daily basis—the ability to move around
so that they can do what they have to do or like to do. One char-
acterization of a city is that it consists of specialized, frequently
clustered, activities that perform discrete functions. Residences
are separate from workplaces, major shopping is concentrated in
identifiable centers, and larger entertainment and relaxation facil-
ities are found at specific locations.
Home Equity Financing leverages the equity you’ve established in your primary residence to
purchase an investment property. You may borrow up to 100% of your current home’s unused
equity. Like getting a new mortgage, home equity financing may be tax deductible.
Renovation Financing is specially designed to provide a single loan that covers both the purchase
price of a less-than-perfect property and the costs of renovating it. The loan amount is based on
the estimated increased value of your property after your planned improvements are made.
Problems of indoor air quality are recognized as important risk factors for hu-
man health in both low- and middle- and high-income countries. Indoor air is
also important because people spend a substantial proportion of their time in
buildings. In residences, day-care centres, retirement homes and other special
environments, indoor air pollution affects population groups that are particu-
larly vulnerable owing to their health status or age.
Three years ago I was a confused third-year medical student, not having any idea
about the next step in my education and professional training. Deciding on a ca-
reer in medicine was easy; choosing a specialty, on the other hand, was agoniz-
ing. Like my classmates, I felt overwhelmed by the number of choices. I imag-
ined myself as a future surgeon or emergency medicine physician, but after
extensive research and clinical experiences, I soon discovered that anesthesiol-
ogy was the perfect ﬁt.
The Medicare Modernization Act of 2003 (MMA) authorized the development of several new types of
health plans for the elderly. The new Special Needs Plans (SNPs) are of particular relevance to the disabled
elderly population. MMA allowed for three types of Special Need Plans, one aimed at residents of SNFs, a
second aimed at dual Medicare and Medicaid eligible individuals, and a third aimed at patients with one or
more chronic disease problems. To date, most SNPs have targeted the dually eligible but all three could be
relevant to health centers serving the disabled elderly.
Skilled Nursing Facility SNPs allow specialization in patients who are already institutionalized. Health
centers may wish to explore partnering with such plans if their physicians are serving a significant number
of nursing home residents or if they contract with or own nursing homes. Typically such plans can
provide a more comprehensive and coordinated package of medical care to SNF residents than would be
normally provided, thus saving on high cost care and, ideally, providing better quality of life for residents.
am one of the million or more male residents of the United Kingdom, who a year ago had no special
yearning towards military life, but who joined the army after war was declared. At Chelsea I found myself a
unit of the 2nd London Irish Battalion, afterwards I was drilled into shape at the White City and training was
concluded at St. Albans, where I was drafted into the 1st Battalion. In my spare time I wrote several articles
dealing with the life of the soldier from the stage of raw "rooky" to that of finished fighter. These I now
publish in book form, and...
I extend my appreciation to the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology and the
Department of Endodontics for their help and support. To my fellow residents, a special thank
you for making my experience at the Faculty of Dentistry enjoyable and memorable.
I am eternally thankful to my parents for all their sacrifices and the opportunities they provided
me. Lastly and most importantly, I would like to thank my wife and two daughters for their love,
support and patience. I owe the most to the sacrifices they made over the past 3 years.
