The third edition of Postgraduate Orthopaedics has been fully updated, revised and expanded to meet the challenges of a continually changing exam format, providing detailed core orthopaedic knowledge and insight into tactics and pre-exam planning to increase a candidate's chance of success. Written by a core of authors chosen specifically for their knowledge of the key factors for exam success, this edition includes more illustrations and diagrams and additional exam-focused material for the trickier areas of the syllabus. The trauma chapter has been separated into four distinct sections to improve the overall trauma content. The book also includes a dedicated chapter on what books to read, reflecting the fact that this area has become more complicated in recent years, and an applied basic science chapter, which focuses on basic science viva questions in detail. This guide continues to evolve and has established itself as the definitive text for the FRCS (Tr & Orth) exam.

A great deal has been accomplished in the 5 years following the release of Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives. Americans are living longer; infant mortality is at a record low level; childhood immunizations are increasing; tobacco use is declining; and more women over age 50 are receiving mammograms at recommended intervals. The Healthy People 2000 Midcourse Review and 1995 Revisions--the mid-decade report on the Nation’s prevention agenda--provides us with the good news. This publication also shows that many challenges remain in preventing premature death and in improving health as the next century approaches.

Jeder Kraftsportler kennt das Problem, dass er nach Wochen des intensiven Trainings plötzlich ein Plateau erreicht. Die Trainingsreize regen seine Muskeln nicht zu weiterem Wachstum an, und der Sportler erzielt keine Fortschritte mehr. Wenn er nun sein Trainingsprogramm nicht verändert, sodass die Muskeln neuen Belastungen ausgesetzt werden, wird er seine Leistungsfähigkeit nicht weiter steigern können. Programmgestaltung im Krafttraining beschäftigt sich mit der Frage, wie ein effektives Trainingsprogramm gestaltet werden muss, um kontinuierlich Fortschritte zu erzielen. Das Buch beschreibt detailliert die Mechanik des Trainingsprozesses, beginnend bei der grundlegenden Physiologie der Adaptation. Spezifische Trainingspläne für Einsteiger, geübte und sehr erfahrene Kraftsportler helfen dabei, die gesteckten Ziele zu erreichen. Dieses bewährte und komplett aktualisierte Standardwerk ist ein Muss für alle, die Hanteltraining betreiben oder unterrichten, für Gewichtheber, Kraftdreikämpfer oder CrossFitter und ihre Trainer, aber auch für Athleten anderer Sportarten, die ihre Leistung im Krafttraining verbessern wollen.

Do you want easy access to the latest methods in scientific computing? This greatly expanded third edition of Numerical Recipes has it, with wider coverage than ever before, many new, expanded and updated sections, and two completely new chapters. The executable C++ code, now printed in colour for easy reading, adopts an object-oriented style particularly suited to scientific applications. Co-authored by four leading scientists from academia and industry, Numerical Recipes starts with basic mathematics and computer science and proceeds to complete, working routines. The whole book is presented in the informal, easy-to-read style that made earlier editions so popular. Highlights of the new material include: a new chapter on classification and inference, Gaussian mixture models, HMMs, hierarchical clustering, and SVMs; a new chapter on computational geometry, covering KD trees, quad- and octrees, Delaunay triangulation, and algorithms for lines, polygons, triangles, and spheres; interior point methods for linear programming; MCMC; an expanded treatment of ODEs with completely new routines; and many new statistical distributions.

Das Egoistische Gen

p”Ein auch heute noch bedeutsamer Klassiker“ Daily Express Sind wir Marionetten unserer Gene? Nach Richard Dawkins ́ vor über 30 Jahren entworfener und heute noch immer provozierender These steuern und dirigieren unsere von Generation zu Generation weitergegebenen Gene uns, um sich selbst zu erhalten. Alle biologischen Organismen dienen somit vor allem dem Überleben und der Unsterblichkeit der Erbanlagen und sind letztlich nur die "Einweg-Behälter" der "egoistischen" Gene. Sind wir Menschen also unserem Gen-Schicksal hilflos ausgeliefert? Dawkins bestreitet dies und macht uns Hoffnung: Seiner Meinung nach sind wir nämlich die einzige Spezies mit der Chance, gegen ihr genetisches Schicksal anzukämpfen.

Health Education: A Cognitive Behavioral Approach is the only text that thoroughly covers the issues of a combined cognitive-behavioral approach to health education, from both the community and school health perspective. The author carefully explores the relationship among thinking, feeling, and acting--an understanding of which is essential for successful health intervention. The primary goal of Health Education: A Cognitive Behavioral Approach is to identify unhealthy behaviors and their cognitive supports, and then to design and implement learning experiences that will be effective in bringing about change.
