Placebo Book Review:

Due to the recent explosion of placebo research at many levels the Editors believe that a volume on Placebo would be a good addition to the Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology series. In particular, this volume will be built up on a meeting on Placebo which will be held in Tuebingen (Germany) in January 2013, and where the most prominent researchers in this field will present and exchange their ideas. The authors who will be invited to write chapters for this volume will be the very same speakers at this meeting, thus guaranteeing high standard and excellence in the topic that will be treated. The approach of the book is mainly pharmacological, including basic research and clinical trials, and the contents range from different medical conditions and systems, such as pain and the immune system, to different experimental approaches, like in vivo receptor binding and pharmacological/behavioral conditioning. Overall, the volume will give an idea of modern placebo research, of timely concepts in both experimental and clinical pharmacology, as well as of modern methods and tools in neuroscience.

Energetics in Acupuncture Book Review:

New title by the author of Cosmetic Acupuncture! Energetics is an area of growing interest and importance in acupuncture. Acupuncture treatment aims to correct the imbalance of energy, or qi; energetics is a method of diagnosing which aspects of qi are out of balance. Energetics in Acupuncture provides a straightforward diagnostic method of identifying which aspects of the qi are out of balance and therefore what acupuncture treatment is required. One symptom can be caused by many different imbalances of organs and it is essential for the therapist to correctly diagnose the problem before commencing treatment. Once the correct diagnosis is made, the relevant points can be treated with appropriate techniques. The book takes a logical approach to diagnosis and provides relevant lines of questioning and reasoning. FEATURES *Treatments are described for over 80 different diseases. *Innovative visual ‘towers’ show clearly what an energy imbalance looks like * Case studies illustrate imbalanced states.

Biofilm Infections Book Review:

This book will cover both the evidence for biofilms in many chronic bacterial infections as well as the problems facing these infections such as diagnostics and treatment regimes. A still increasing interest and emphasis on the sessile bacterial lifestyle biofilms has been seen since it was realized that that less than 0.1% of the total microbial biomass lives in the planktonic mode of growth. The term was coined in 1978 by Costerton et al. who defined the term biofilm for the first time.In 1993 the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) recognised that the biofilmmode of growth was relevant to microbiology. Lately many articles have been published on the clinical implications of bacterial biofilms. Both original articles and reviews concerning the biofilm problem are available.

Placebo Effects Book Review:

One of the most widespread words in medicine is placebo and placebo effect, although it is not always clear what it means exactly. Recent progress in biomedical research has allowed a better clarification of the placebo effect. We know that this is an active psychobiological phenomenon which takes place in the patient's brain and that is capable of influencing both the course of a disease and the response to a therapy. Since publication of the first edition of this book in 2008, there has been an explosion of placebo research, and this new edition brings the topic fully up to date. Throughout, the book emphasizes that there are many placebo effects and critically reviews them in different medical conditions, such as neurological and psychiatric disorders, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, immune and hormonal responses, as well as oncology, surgery, sports medicine and acupuncture. The psychosocial context around the patient is crucial to the placebo effect, for example the doctor's words and attitudes, and throughout this is considered. Exhaustive in its coverage, and written by a world authority in the field, this is the definitive reference text to the placebo effect - one that is essential for researchers and clinicians across a wide range of medical specialities.

Get to Know Your Mate Book Review:

The Personality Extraction Profile Whether a male or female, it is critical that we use every opportunity and means we have available to choose our mate. Life is short and you dont want to waste years on a dead end relationship, which will only cost you grief, time and money in the end. Many of our relationship problems could be avoided if we took a little more time when forming them. The Personality Extraction (PE) profile provides you with a way to begin this process. At the first intention of starting a relationship is when you begin your personality extraction. This rule applies to both sexes, though women need to be more cautious of the situations they place themselves in. Often, first dates are where a woman runs into unforeseen problems. Thats why it is important to apply the fundamentals of dating: know who you are dating, where they come from, their place of residence and something about their background; ask to see some identification, if they drive a car get a license number, but do this very discretely. However you do it make sure you get to know who you are dating. The Personality Extraction (PE) is a good way to start the process of getting to know your mate; you will come in contact with who he/she really is or he/she will fill you with lies. Caution is advised that while you are working on the Personality Extraction (PE) you must be patient until completing the PE as you watch your mates personality unfold before your eyes. We understand and perceive things we hear and see in different ways; this is why the PE is arranged for the various ways people may view questions. Of course, you have those who like to play word games, but as you will see the PE will give them ample opportunities to give a truthful answer. Serious questions are asked in several ways to ensure no misunderstanding of the question asked. You have to be able to track your mates answers mentally to be able to use this portion of the book. But if your mate is honest in his/her responses, you will not have to worry about tracking his/her responses considering the fact that all concerned know that the PE is safe-guarded against deception. Anyone trying to be deceptive in his/her answers should be looked upon as an untrustworthy person, incapable of having a meaningful relationship. There is no doubt that questions and answers are the foundation of all relationships. Without questions and answers there is no way to develop a relationship, this fact should be clear, and this is the foundation of the PEwithout proper questioning, where would any relationship go? How could we ever hope to accomplish anything without questions and answers? With the PE all the key questions are prepared for you; all you have to do is ask him/her and evaluate your proposed mates answers. This tool consists of 572 questions which have been broken down into different workable formats, ranging from a one-month time frame to a 3-to-12 month time period. These workable formats have been made to give you some idea as to how to go about completing the book in its entirety. It is not recommended to try and complete the book in a hasty fashion. The one-month format is a reasonable for those who are willing to invest the time and mental interaction which is necessary to complete the Personality Extraction at this rapid, but realistic pace. The one-month process seems to display a true element of honesty while ultimately aiming to get the relationship off to a good start. But that choice is for you and your prospective mate to decide. Choosing a time frame for completion varies for each couple. The workable formats are just suggestions which will apply a reasonable completion date to look forward to. Choose your time frame and stick to it based on your own personal relationship desires and availability. 1 month = 19 questions per day 3 months = 6 questions per day 6 months = 3 questions per day 9 months = 2 questions per day 1 year = 2 questions per

Niceville Book Review:

Something is wrong in Niceville. . . A boy literally disappears from Main Street. A security camera captures the moment of his instant, inexplicable vanishing. An audacious bank robbery goes seriously wrong: four cops are gunned down; a TV news helicopter is shot and spins crazily out of the sky, triggering a disastrous cascade of events that ricochet across twenty different lives over the course of just thirty-six hours. Nick Kavanaugh, a cop with a dark side, investigates. Soon he and his wife, Kate, a distinguished lawyer from an old Niceville family, find themselves struggling to make sense not only of the disappearance and the robbery but also of a shadow world, where time has a different rhythm and where justice is elusive. . . .Something is wrong in Niceville, where evil lives far longer than men do. Compulsively readable, and populated with characters who leap off the page, Niceville will draw you in, excite you, amaze you, horrify you, and, when it finally lets you go, make you sorry you have to leave. Read the first thirty-five pages. Find out why Harlan Coben calls Carsten Stroud the master of “the nerve-jangling thrill ride.” Now with an excerpt from Carsten Stroud’s next book, The Homecoming.

Valve train Book Review:

Valve train systems control the gas exchange in a combustion engine, which means that they represent a significant opportunity for optimizing the combustion process. Since they draw energy from the crankshaft, an efficient valve train contributes greatly to improving overall efficiency. The components of the valve train system are subjected to high loads. In addition to wear due to mechanical forces increasing combustion pressures and temperatures, in particular, place greater demands on the materials and heat dissipation of components on the combustion side. This technical book clearly and thoroughly presents a holistic understanding of the valve train system.
