The Silent Epidemic addresses a critical public health problem in America – the leading preventable cause of birth defects, neurodevelopmental disorders, and intellectual disability: prenatal alcohol exposure. From her work in community health, forensic psychiatry, and private practice, Dr. Rich provides insight into the prevalence of neurodevelopmental disorder associated with prenatal alcohol exposure (ND-PAE) among juveniles accused of violent crimes, in neighborhoods where America’s “least valued” citizens reside, and even in upper middle class communities. The problem develops as early as the first three weeks of pregnancy, when many women are unaware that they are pregnant. With appropriate diagnosis and treatment, affected individuals can avoid a lifetime of lost potential from substance use disorders, incarceration, unemployment, and homelessness.

Winner of the 2015 Running Awards, voted Best Book 2015. In October 2012, over 1000 people applied to take part in a university research study to assess how normal, recreationally active people cope with the demands of training for their first IRON distance triathlon a 3.8km swim, followed by 180km of cycling and finishing with the mere matter of a 42.2km marathon run. This book is a collection of the tales from the people within the team affectionately known as the HURTS team, an acronym for ‘Hertfordshire University Research Triathlon Study’. Their individual goal was to inspire others to dream big and to live out those dreams, whether it be a triathlon or not. However, as a cohort, they wished to raise awareness and funds to help find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a debilitating and fatal disorder. Their collective goal was to support Harrison’s Fund, set up in 2012 to support breakthrough research leading to positive interventions and ultimately a cure for muscular dystrophy worldwide. Triathlon – It HURTS is an inspiring story of what normal people can achieve when challenged. This book will appeal to those looking to learn more about the successes and harsh realities of training for a triathlon, as well as those who want an uplifting story of human achievement. “A wonderful book of inspiration from those who participate in the triathlon ... I found this book giving me hope” Jamie Chases Butterflies blog

RAIN’S GAME A seductive virgin of Poetry She’s hard to contain She’s not looking for fortune Or fi ve minutes of fame In an animalistic world She’s unleashed and untamed With no shame nor pain What she writes is easy to explain Life’s trials and tribulations came Battle scars she had to obtain But with them came wisdom And the power to retain Knowledge which keeps her sane She’s very diff erent not the same She’s on a longer path She’s in a diff erent lane Don’t place her in the picture You won’t fi nd her in the frame Her pen to paper has emotions Sex, love, joy and pain She needs no titles to claim Never trash talk it’s too lame Just respect she seeks to gain Her morals she intends to sustain Goals with intent to aim She’s set them up high Like a junkie on cocaine It’s a new dawn, a new day, a new game You can change players but it’s still the same Just remember one particular name Identity of an alter ego that they call......RAIN

Bullying doesn't stop just because the bullies grow up. In seventh grade, Maggie Camden was the class outcast. Every day, the other girls tripped her, pinched her, trapped her in the bathroom, told her she would be better off dead. Four years have passed since then, and Maggie’s tormentors seem to have moved on. The ringleader of them all, Raleigh Barringer, even moved out of town. But Maggie has never stopped watching for attacks, and every laugh still sounds like it’s at her expense. The only time Maggie feels at peace is when she’s hiking up in the mountains with her best friend, Nick. Lately, though, there’s a new sort of tension between the two of them—a tension both dangerous and delicious. But how can Maggie expect anything more out of Nick when all she’s ever been told is that she’s ugly, she’s pathetic, she’s unworthy of love? And how can she ever feel safe, now that Raleigh Barringer is suddenly—terrifyingly—back in town? From the Hardcover edition.

To six-year-old Dori, everything seems possible. To her family and their Peers—secular, left-leaning North American Jews—the young state of Israel seems to offer the same promise, as the starry-eyed kibbutz movement prepares the ground for their ideals of justice and cooperation to take root and flourish. They settle on Eldar in northern Galilee, determined to create a new utopia, but life on this remote hill, three kilometres from the Lebanese border, is far more complex than any of its inhabitants could have imagined. The Last Rain tells the story of Eldar's emergence as a kibbutz through the eyes of Dori, as well as through documentary fragments that take the reader on a labyrinthine journey through the characters' collective past. With humour, sensitivity, and a deep love for the land, The Last Rain follows the coming of age not only of a young girl, but also of a country in the first fraught years of its existence.
