Summary

The earth is indeed an extraordinary planet and not just because of the infinite variety of  life that it supports, the land itself is fabricated marvelously with wonders that possess inherent capacity to attract and allure people throughout the ages. The wonders of the world that are discussed in the book have been the subject of many books over the centuries, but our aim is to present something much more enlightening, stimulating, and engaging than straightforward description.           #v&spublishers

    JUST ONE PAGE !!! !!! !!!
     
    The key idea of this handbook is to introduce an innovative, practical and visual presentation of the English Language Tense system on one page only. This unique and distinctive grammar presentation on a vector line demonstrates all the major tense systems on the basis of a step-by-step approach, depending on the study level. Starting from the Elementary level, continued by the Pre-Intermediate level and finally, the Intermediate level – JUST ONE PAGE is divided into three levels and for each specific section, practical tips, instructions and guidelines are provided. No necessity to sit and read for several hours hundreds of pages of academic grammar theory. 
     
    The JUST ONE PAGE grammar system presents the most significant features of each tense, thus, 22 tenses in English Language grammar are depicted on a single page. It enables a learner to obtain the key knowledge quickly, based on understanding a tense practical application using “signal words” (which are called “time adverbs” in grammar books), rather than pure academic theory memorising and, finally, learn correct application of the Tense system in language practice. This systematic approach has proved to be effective and attractive for over 25 years and has helped numerous students to learn English grammar quickly, effectively and easily.

    What is a cultural error? What causes it? What are the consequences of such an error?
    
    This volume enables the reader to identify cultural errors and to understand how they are produced. Sometimes they come about because of the gap between the source culture and the target culture, on other occasions they are the result of the cultural inadequacies of the translator, or perhaps the ambiguity arises because of errors in the reception of the translated text. The meta-translational problem of the cultural error is explored in great detail in this book. The authors address the fundamental theoretical issues that underpin the term. The essays examine a variety of topics ranging from the deliberate political manipulation of cultural sources in Russia to the colonial translations at the heart of Edward FitzGerald’s famous translation The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám. Adopting a resolutely transdisciplinary approach, the seventeen contributors to this volume come from a variety of academic backgrounds in music, art, literature, and linguistics. They provide an innovative reading of a key term in translation studies today.

    Step right up for the Greatest Book on Earth! For more than 70 years, Clowns International—the oldest established clowning organization—has been painting the faces of its members on eggs. Each one is a record of a clown's unique identity, preserving the unwritten rule that no clown should copy another's look. This mesmerizing volume collects more than 150 of these portraits, from 1946 to the modern day, accompanied by short personal histories of many of the clowns. Here are Tricky Nicky, Taffy, Bobo, Sammy Sunshine, the legendary Emmett Kelly, and Jolly Jack, clowning since 1977 and still performing today with a penguin puppet named Biscuit. A treasure just like the eggs it enshrines, The Clown Egg Register is an extraordinary archive of images and lives of the men and women behind the make-up.

    Who Shall Live? - Health...

    Since the first edition of Who Shall Live? (1974) over 100,000 students, teachers, physicians, and general readers from more than a dozen fields have found this book to be a reader-friendly, authoritative introduction to economic concepts applied to health and medical care.  Fuchs provides clear explanations and memorable examples of the importance of the non-medical determinants of health, the dominant role of physicians in health care expenditures, the necessity of choices about health at the individual and societal levels, and many other compelling themes.Now, in a new introduction of some 8,000 words including new tables and figures, Fuchs, often called the “Dean of health economists”, concisely summarizes the major changes of the past 37 years in health, medical care, and health policy.  He focuses primarily on the United States but includes remarks about health policy in other countries, and addresses the question of whether national health care systems are becoming more alike. In addition to reviewing changes, the introduction explains why health expenditures grow so rapidly, why health spending in the United States is so much greater than in other countries, and what physicians need in order to practice cost-effective medicine.This second expanded edition also includes recent papers by Fuchs on the economics of aging, the socio-economic correlates of health, the future of health economics, and his policy recommendations for the United States to secure universal coverage, control of costs, and improvement in the quality of care. As was true of the first expanded edition (1998), this book will be welcomed by current students and life-long learners in economics, other social and behavioral sciences, medicine, public health, law, business, public policy, and other fields who want to understand the relation between health, economics, and social choice.Contents:Health and EconomicsProblems and Choices:The Problems We FaceThe Choices We Must MakeWho Shall Live?:The First Year of LifeThree Score and TenThe “Weaker” SexA Tale of Two StatesSummaryThe Physician: The Captain of the Team:Caring and Curing“I Can't Get a Doctor”The “Surgeon Surplus”Meeting the ChallengeThe Hospital: The House of Hope:The Central Problem — High CostHospitals TodayWhy Are Hospital Costs So High?How to Keep Hospital Costs from Going HigherDrugs: The Key to Modern Medicine:Drug ManufacturingDrug RetailingNew DrugsDrugs and Ill HealthDrug CostsEthical ProblemsPaying for Medical Care:The Present SystemWho?What?How?HMOsConcluding CommentsHealth and Social Choice:ReviewThe Limits of EconomicsRecommendationsHealth, Economics, and Social Choice:What Every Philosopher Should Know About Health EconomicsPoverty and Health; Asking the Right QuestionsFrom Bismarck to Woodcock: The “Irrational” Pursuit of National Health InsuranceEconomics, Values, and Health Care ReformFurther Thoughts on Health Economics and Health Policy:The Future of Health Economics“Provide, Provide”: The Economics of AgingReflections on the Socio-Economic Correlates of HealthA Comprehensive Cure: Universal Health Care VouchersThe Dedicated VAT SolutionReadership: Undergraduates in economics, sociology and public policy; graduates in medicine, public health and public policy; physicians and other health professionals.
