The Professor Trim’s (PT) Quick Start program in this
book is an introduction to effective weight loss, and a lifetime
of weight management, for new mothers and mothersto-
be. It differs from other pregnancy advice in that it’s
aimed mainly at mothers—although never neglecting the
health of the baby. Most information for new mums,
you’ll find, is focused on the health of the child. And
while no one would deny the importance of this, the
ongoing health of the mother often seems to be forgotten....

Assessing the Patient's Readiness to Change An attempt to initiate lifestyle changes when the patient is not ready usually leads to frustration and may hamper future weight-loss efforts. Assessment includes patient motivation and support, stressful life events, psychiatric status, time availability and constraints, and appropriateness of goals and expectations. Readiness can be viewed as the balance of two opposing forces: (1) motivation, or the patient's desire to change; and (2) resistance, or the patient's resistance to change.
Lifestyle Management Obesity care involves attention to three essential elements of lifestyle: dietary habits, physical activity, and behavior modification. Because obesity is fundamentally a disease of energy imbalance, all patients must learn how and when energy is consumed (diet), how and when energy is expended (physical activity), and how to incorporate this information into their daily life (behavior therapy). Lifestyle management has been shown to result in a modest (typically 3– 5 kg) weight loss compared to no treatment or usual care.
The three restrictive-malabsorptive bypass procedures combine the elements of gastric restriction and selective malabsorption. These procedures include Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), biliopancreatic diversion (BPD), and biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPDDS) (Fig. 75-2). RYGB is the most commonly performed and accepted bypass procedure. It may be performed with an open incision or laparoscopically.
Every year an estimated three million newborn babies die during the first week of life due to problems such as sepsis, tetanus, or asphyxia, or problems associated with trauma, low birth weight, or preterm birth. This guide is written for the doctors, nurses, senior midwives, and other health care workers at the first referral level in low resource settings who are responsible for the care of newborn babies with problems during the first week(s) of life.
Leadership is one of the most important and essential factors in good project
management. Leadership can be seen as the art of influencing others to achieve desired
results. Leaders guide behaviors by setting the vision, direction and the key processes; in
other words, leadership has a large influence on the whole project process, including the
actions of others.
Jack Welch, previous CEO of General Electric, is reported to have called his
direct reports together one day and issued a three word dictum: “Don’t manage!
Physical Activity Therapy Although exercise alone is only moderately effective for weight loss, the combination of dietary modification and exercise is the most effective behavioral approach for the treatment of obesity. The most important role of exercise appears to be in the maintenance of the weight loss. Currently, the minimum public health recommendation for physical activity is 30 min of moderate intensity physical activity on most, and preferably all, days of the week.
The historical emergence of colonial powers and nation states, and their violent
assumption of authority over most common lands and natural resources led to the
demise of traditional resource management systems virtually everywhere. The monetisation
of economic exchange weakened local systems of reciprocity and solidarity,
as did the incorporation of local economies into increasingly global systems of reference.
In addition, the rise in power of modern, expert-based, «scientific» practices
induced severe losses in local knowledge and skills.
In this chapter, the following content will be discussed: Demand management, qualitative forecasting methods, simple & weighted moving average forecasts, exponential smoothing, simple linear regression, web-based forecasting.
Agencies must establish policies and procedures to ensure that electronic records and their documentation are retained and accessible as long as needed. Agencies are required to include electronic records management objectives, responsibilities, and authorities in pertinent agency directives, or rules, as applicable.5 Agencies can begin to manage their electronic records by incorporating electronic records into any general agency records management policies they may have in place.

The .NET platform is the foundation upon which the next generation of software
will be built. Microsoft has invested a lot of capital in its development, and
is putting its considerable weight behind its adoption as a new standard. A long
list of Microsoft partners have also announced support for .NET tools and components—
you can check http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/partners for a current
list of vendors who have .NET offerings.
The .NET platform is much more than a new language, software development
kit (SDK), or even an operating system.
Chapter 9 The Cost of Capital
a. The weighted average cost of capital, WACC, is the weighted average of the after-tax component costs of capital—-debt, preferred stock, and common equity. Each weighting factor is the proportion of that type of capital in the optimal, or target, capital structure.
CHAPTER 9 The Cost of Capital
Calculating the weighted average cost of capital
WACC = wdkd(1-T) + wpkp + wcks The w’s refer to the firm’s capital structure weights. The k’s refer to the cost of each component.
Should our analysis focus on before-tax or after-tax capital costs?
Stockholders focus on A-T CFs. Therefore, we should focus on A-T capital costs, i.e.

We live in an age that is dominated by the “I know what I want and I want it now” attitude. It is a time of fast food and quick fixes. A time of self before everything and Me! Me! Me! A rat race of the lowest kind. Keeping up has never seemed more important-a mentality of getting rich quick at any cost. This attitude is also why many people are getting involved with the commodity and futures industry.
