“At last, a biography of Herbert Hoover that captures the man in full.... [Jeansonne] has splendidly illuminated the arc of one of the most extraordinary lives of the twentieth century.” (David M. Kennedy, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Freedom from Fear)Prize-winning historian Glen Jeansonne delves into the life of our most misunderstood president, offering up a surprising new portrait of Herbert Hoover - dismissing previous assumptions and revealing a political Progressive in the mold of Theodore Roosevelt and the most resourceful American since Benjamin Franklin. Orphaned at an early age and raised with strict Quaker values, Hoover earned his way through Stanford University. His hardworking ethic drove him to a successful career as an engineer and multinational businessman. After the Great War, he led a humanitarian effort that fed millions of Europeans left destitute, arguably saving more lives than any man in history. As commerce secretary under President Coolidge, Hoover helped modernize and galvanize American industry and orchestrated the rehabilitation of the Mississippi Valley after the Great Flood of 1927. As president, Herbert Hoover became the first chief executive to harness federal power to combat a crippling global recession. Though Hoover is often remembered as a "do-nothing" president, Jeansonne convincingly portrays a steadfast leader who challenged Congress on an array of legislation that laid the groundwork for the New Deal. In addition Hoover reformed America's prisons, improved worker safety, and fought for better health and welfare for children. Unfairly attacked by Franklin D. Roosevelt and blamed for the Depression, Hoover was swept out of office in a landslide. Yet as FDR's government grew into a bureaucratic behemoth, Hoover became the moral voice of the GOP and a champion of Republican principles - a legacy reignited by Ronald Reagan and that still endures today. A compelling and rich examination 1.

Sensory Re-Education of the Hand
181,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Stroke patients continue to present a major challenge to the rehabilitation professions. In particular, the 'rehabilitated patient with a useless hand remains an all too common phenomenon. This book focuses on the sensory perceptual disturbances caused by stroke which, even if slight can be the crucial factor in poor hand function. A wide-ranging review is presented of the processes of functional reorganisation by which the brain responds to the demands posed by injury as well as by learning. An inescapable conclusion from this literature is that any therapy which aims to harness these processes for the restoration of function after stroke needs to engage the patients attention and motivation. This is followed by a detailed description of the method of Sensory Re-education developed by the author through long experience with patients and culminating in a clinical trial which establised its effectiveness. While the book is intended primarily for physiotherapists and occupational therapists, it contains much to interest all who are concerned with brain function in health and disease, including neurologists and neuropsychologists, as well as stroke patients and their families.Contents Introduction The Challenge: Stroke and its Aftermath; The Effectiveness of Therapy; The Quest for a Different Approach Sensory Loss in Stroke: Sensory Testing and the Frequency and Types of Deficit; The Functional Implications of Sensory Loss The Theoretical Basis of Sensory Re-education: Sources; Peripheral Nerve Lesions; Central Lesions; Guide-lines for Intervention Contributions from Psychology: Attention; Motivation The Essentials of Sensory Re-education: The Focus on the Hand; The TherapeuticRelationship; The Protocol for a Sensory Task; Summary The Curriculum I: How to Use the Curriculum; Lessons in Touch The Curriculum II: Lessons in Proprioception; Lessons in the Recognition of Objects and Their Qualities; Suggestions for Homework Validation of the Method: Theoretical

IF YOU WANT TO GET THOSE HIGH, LOUD NOTES THAT THE WINNERS OF THE TV SINGING CONTESTS ALWAYS SEEM TO HAVE, YOU'VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE. With a groundbreaking vocal method, veteran singer, coach, and teacher Meredith Colby shows how any singer can 'go through the back door' to quickly achieve the singing results they want. Drawing on contemporary brain research and applying similar neurology theories to those found in sports instruction and physical rehabilitation, Neuro-Vocal Method exploits the innate tendencies of the brain-both to steer changes in singing and to be guided by changes as they occur. Money Notes: How to Sing High, Loud, Healthy, and Forever reveals: • How your brain is controlling your voice and how to make it change its ways to set your high notes free • Why it's virtually impossible to find a voice teacher who will help you get your money notes • How your voice works naturally and how to harness that power • The tricks and tools that will let you achieve your goals and how to use them • How to get over that frustrating 'break' in your voice • Why you should stop feeling guilty about anything that may have happened along your vocal journey • Exercises guaranteed to increase vocal range, volume, and stamina Money Notes is a fascinating and compelling exploration of how the brain functions when we sing and an accessible and effective tutorial on how to attain vocal strength, stamina, and freedom.

Our twenty first century world is facing a series of unprecedented crises. Pandemics of loneliness, obesity and diabetes. Spiralling inequality. Financial meltdowns. Environmental destruction. We're obsessed with finding big, complicated, technological solutions to these modern ills. But what if the solutions lie not in techno fixes, but in harnessing the power of one of the oldest and simplest human units - the sympathy group? The sympathy group is the smallest social unit outside the family. People who share a common interest and solve a challenge through facilitated conversation. Working together in sympathy groups is the secret of success in all areas of human endeavour - from agriculture to child-care, trade, science, theatre, music, the military, business and sport. In a radical new argument, award-winning scientist Professor Anthony Costello lays out a new science of cooperation based on 20 years studying community participation through women's sympathy groups in Bangladesh, India, Malawi and Nepal. He shows how tapping the power, ingenuity and tenacity of small groups: Has guided the course of human history, hidden in plain sight, from hunter-gatherer societies to the present day, Dramatically improved health and survival of mothers and infants in Asia and Africa,¿ Could re-ignite revolutionary social change in over- individualised societies for our sustainable future, Can radically reform the culture of business, medicine, government and economics. In this fascinating, funny and important book, Professor Costello dares to suggest twenty two social experiments to underpin solutions. Sympathy groups tackling their own health, organisation and environment challenges are not an optional, 'nice' extra. They are central, profoundly important, and ignored. The book explains how science can harness the power of sympathy groups to: Help millions of lonely elderly people. Prevent diabetes, mental ill-health and cardiovascular disease Improve company productivity Tackle antisocial behaviour, prison reform and rehabilitation Find local solutions for our climate crisis Change the culture of money to stop another financial crash 'Take back control' by creating a more relational state
