This manual explains how to make the right decisions on the timing and selection of investigations and surgical procedures in emergency and urgent surgical settings and describes the most widely used procedures step by step with the aid of high-quality illustrations. The goal is to address the situations that can arise in almost any emergency department throughout the world, enabling the surgeon on call to acquire or sharpen the knowledge and skills needed to deal with acute surgical problems in the most appropriate way. The reader will gain a sound understanding of the most efficient diagnostic modalities, pre-, intra-, and postoperative decision-making, and surgical techniques and issues in particular circumstances. The manual stems from an initiative by members of the European Society of Trauma and Emergency Surgery (ESTES) and the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST) to set up and formalize Emergency Surgery Courses to provide specific training in emergency and acute care surgery. It represents a didactic accompaniment to the course that will guide the beginner and maintain a certain degree of standardization among the more experienced.
Who would have ever thought that learning the finer points of improvisation could be such fun? The ´´Harold, ´´ an innovative improvisational tool, helped Saturday Night Live´s Mike Myers and Chris Farley, George Wendt (´´Norm´´ on Cheers) and many other actors on the road to TV and film stardom. Now it is described fully in this new book for the benefit of other would-be actors and comics. The ´´Harold´´ is a form of competitive improv involving six or seven players.

The teams compete with scoring based on applause. The ´´Harold´´ is a fun way to ´´loosen up´´ and learn to think quickly, build continulty, develop characterizations and sharpen humor--all part of successful improvising.

Sex sells - in advertising, in brothels, on television, in the movies, and on the telephone. The purpose of this book is to give you an insight into how you can start your own income-producing phone-sex business in the privacy of your own home.

New York Times best seller This instant classic explores how we can change our lives by changing our habits.Named one of the best books of the year by The Wall Street Journal and Financial Times In The Power of Habit, award-winning business reporter Charles Duhigg takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. Distilling vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives that take us from the boardrooms of Procter & Gamble to the sidelines of the NFL to the front lines of the civil rights movement, Duhigg presents a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential. At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, being more productive, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. As Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives. ´´Sharp, provocative, and useful.” (Jim Collins) ´´Few [books] become essential manuals for business and living. The Power of Habit is an exception. Charles Duhigg not only explains how habits are formed but how to kick bad ones and hang on to the good.” (Financial Times) 1. Language: English.
