Surgery of the Inferior Vena Cava ~ A Multidisciplinary Approach

Surgery of the Inferior Vena Cava: A Multidisciplinary Approach

Daniel Azoulay, Surgery of the Inferior Vena Cava: A Multidisciplinary Approach
English | 26 Apr. 2017 | ISBN: 3319255630 | 232 Pages | EPUB | 8 MB
This book addresses an urgent need, offering an updated, detailed and multidisciplinary review of surgery of the inferior vena cava (IVC). Over the past two decades, tremendous advances have been made in this field and related specialties. Many journals and/or textbooks on different surgical or medical specialties have reported on individual aspects, so it is high time to gather all of them in a single resource.
To date, surgery of the IVC remains a major challenge, not only in terms of technical difficulties, but also in terms of perioperative management. The book sheds new light on cutting-edge developments, including: Innovations in imaging; Neoadjuvant and adjuvant treatments for tumors of or involving the IVC; Intraoperative anesthetic management; and Technical and technological advances in surgery. As such, it will be of a great interest to surgeons (cardiac, vascular and digestive) and urologists, as well as radiologists and anesthesiologists.

Supporting and Educating Young Muslim Women ~ Stories from Australia and the UK

Supporting and Educating Young Muslim Women: Stories from Australia and the UK

Supporting and Educating Young Muslim Women: Stories from Australia and the UK (Routledge Critical Studies in Gender and Sexuality in Education, v. 8) by Amanda Keddie
2017 | ISBN: 1138121444 | English | 146 pages | PDF | 1 MB
This book draws on the stories of female educators and young Muslim women to explore issues of identity, justice and education. Situated against a backdrop of unprecedented Islamophobia and new articulations of White-lash’, this book draws on case study research conducted over a ten-year period and provides insight into the diverse worlds of young Muslim women from education and community contexts in Australia and England. Keddie discusses the ways in which these young women find spaces of agency and empowerment within these contexts and how their passionate and committed educators support them in this endeavour. Useful for researchers and educators who are concerned about Islamophobia and its devastating impacts on Muslim women and girls, this book positions responsibility for changing the oppressions of Islamophobia and gendered Islamophobia with all of us. Such change begins with education. The stories in this book hope to contribute to the change process.

Subhuman: The Moral Psychology of Human Attitudes to Animals
Oxford University | English | 2018 | ISBN-10: 0190695811 | 264 pages | PDF | 8.68 mb
by T. J. Kasperbauer (Author)
When Harambe, a now-famous gorilla at the Cinncinnati zoo, was shot for endangering a small child, animal rights activists protested, calling into question moral reasoning that privileges the possibility of injury to a human over definite violence to an animal. Many others, though less
vehement in their objection, voiced the same questions: was the gorilla any worse than the negligent parents Doesn’t Harambe have rights just like you and me
How do we decide what animals deserve and how we ought to treat them To what extent are our attitudes towards animals embedded in our subconscious and immune to reason The foundations of our moral attitudes to animals are more complex than many may appreciate. Subhuman takes an interdisciplinary
approach to these questions, drawing from research in philosophy, neuroscience, psychology, law, history, sociology, economics, and anthropology, to unearth surprising revelations about human relationships with animals. T.J. Kasperbauer argues provocatively that behind our positive and negative
attitudes to animals is an enduring concern that animals pose a threat to our humanness. Namely, our need to ensure animals’ inferiority to human beings affects both our kindness and cruelty to animals. Kasperbauer develops this idea by looking at research on the phenomenon of dehumanization,
revealing that our attitudes to other humans are predicted and reflected in our treatment of other species.
In making his case, Kasperbauer provides a critical survey of leading theories that range over the role of animals in human evolutionary history, the psychology of meat-eating and keeping pets, feelings of fear and disgust toward animals, the use of animal minds to determine their moral status, and
the expanding moral circle hypothesis. By exploring the psychological obstacles humans face in meeting ethical demands, Kasperbauer sets forth new and fascinating ways of thinking about our moral obligations to animals, and how we might correct them.

Studies of Pallas in the Early Nineteenth Century ~ Historical Studies in Asteroid Research

Studies of Pallas in the Early Nineteenth Century: Historical Studies in Asteroid Research

Studies of Pallas in the Early Nineteenth Century: Historical Studies in Asteroid Research by Clifford J. Cunningham
English | 30 Nov. 2016 | ISBN: 3319328468 | 492 Pages | EPUB | 18.14 MB
Based on extensive primary sources, many never previously translated into English, this is the definitive account of the discovery of Pallas as it went from being classified as a new planet to reclassification as the second of a previously unknown group of celestial objects. Cunningham, a dedicated scholar of asteroids, includes a large set of newly translated correspondence as well as the many scientific papers about Pallas in addition to sections of Schroeter’s 1805 book on the subject.
It was Olbers who discovered Pallas, in 1802, the second of many asteroids that would be officially identified as such. From the Gold Medal offered by the Paris Academy to solve the mystery of Pallas’ gravitational perturbations to Gauss’ Pallas Anagram, the asteroid remained a lingering mystery to leading thinkers of the time. Representing an intersection of science, mathematics, and philosophy, the puzzle of Pallas occupied the thoughts of an amazing panorama of intellectual giants in Europe in the early 1800s.
