Download and read online Delivering the Truth in PDF and EPUB Quaker midwife Rose Carroll discovers dark secrets in 1888 Massachusetts For Quaker midwife Rose Carroll, life in Amesbury, Massachusetts, provides equal measures of joy and tribulation. She delights in attending to the needs of mothers and newborns even as she mourns the recent death of her sister. Likewise, Rose enjoys the giddy feelings that come from being courted by a handsome doctor, but a suspicious fire and two murders leave her fearing for the well-being of her loved ones. Driven by her desire for safety and justice, Rose Carroll begins asking questions related to the crimes. Consulting with her friends and neighbors—including the famous Quaker poet John Greenleaf Whittier—Rose draws on her strengths as a counselor and problem solver in trying to bring the perpetrators to light. Praise: “First of hopefully many more to come, I believe that everyone will definitely enjoy this stand-out book.”—Suspense Magazine “A highly competent mystery.”—Kirkus Reviews “Rose Carroll is a richly crafted and appealing sleuth. A terrific historical read.”—Rhys Bowen, New York Times bestselling author "The historical setting is redolent and delicious, the townspeople engaging, and the plot a proper puzzle, but it's Rose Carroll—midwife, Quaker, sleuth—who captivates in this irresistible series debut."—Catriona McPherson, award-winning author of the Dandy Gilver series.

Download and read online It s Really 10 Months in PDF and EPUB No one ever tells you about all of the crap that happens to you when you're pregnant. Like, for example, it's not nine months, it's ten long months. We are three thirty-something women who were fortunate enough to be pregnant at the same time. We shared our questions, fears, humor, and experiences through emails, which became our lifeline and virtual support group. Here, we share the good, the bad, and the ugly of our experiences. We do not hold back for the squeamish or the faint of heart-you need the truth, and now! We are all social workers with graduate education, and we have all worked in the obstetrical units of hospitals for many years. Along the way, we thought it might be helpful to have someone sane weigh in on our hormonal ramblings, so we asked Dr. Bob, a specialist in high-risk pregnancies to help us out. But, we know that all of this experience is nothing like being pregnant yourself! So prop up your cankles, rest this book upon your shelf of a belly, and check out our email log. We made it through the entire experience and lived to tell the tale-and you will too.
Download and read online Tell Me the Truth Doctor in PDF and EPUB "Hey, Doc--Got a Minute?" No matter where Dr. Richard Besser goes, a day doesn't go by without someone stopping him to ask that question. Often, that person is one of the millions who have come to rely on the vital information he shares on Good Morning America, World News with Diane Sawyer, and Nightline. Now, in response to thousands of inquiries from viewers, Dr. Besser has written his first book--a comprehensive health guide that will both inform and surprise as he deciphers fact from fiction for nearly seventy confusing medical questions, including: - "Should I take a daily aspirin to prevent a heart attack, stroke, or cancer?" - "If my doctors order a lot of tests, does that mean they're more thorough?" - "Do I need thirty minutes of exercise a day to stay healthy?" Recognizing the astonishing amount of misinformation that many important health decisions are based upon, Dr. Besser's commitment to delivering the truth is critical. He isn't afraid to challenge the status quo--or the interests within the health care industry--to provide the knowledge you need to take control of your health. Eager to help you make the choices that are right for YOU, he organizes his easy-to-understand answers into six lifestyle categories, including diet and nutrition; exercise and fitness; vitamins, supplements, and medicines; beating illness and injury; and navigating the perplexing world of health care, as well as a chapter dedicated to the questions you wished you asked before your doctor walks out the door. Throughout the book, Dr. Besser smashes myths while translating invaluable information into problem-solving advice you can use, including a "Dr. B's Bottom Line" at the end of each topic. As accessible as it is empowering, Dr. Besser's Tell Me the Truth, Doctor is a necessary addition to every home, office, and dorm room. "Besser . . . ably analyzes popular myths (the "Freshman Fifteen"), considers pros and cons (HRT and statins), and mostly takes unequivocal stands on the issues. . . . Quite often, his comments and suggestions surprise. . . . Particularly helpful are his guidelines for avoiding the harmful effects of health care and hospitalization." --Publishers Weekly Richard Besser, MD, ABC News' Chief Health and Medical Editor, provides medical analysis and commentary for all ABC News broadcasts and platforms, including World News with Diane Sawyer, Good Morning America, and Nightline, as well as many other news/entertainment programs.

Download and read online Truth at Work The Science of Delivering Tough Messages in PDF and EPUB The truth matters! New York Times bestselling author Mark Murphy returns, with the latest science and techniques for delivering tough messages without causing anger or defensiveness. The greatest workplaces have one thing in common; they speak the truth! And they do it without causing anger, resentment, or defensiveness. Unfortunately, a whopping 80 to 90 percent of employees and managers are reluctant, or struggle, to speak the truth. New York Times bestselling author Mark Murphy provides the science and tools for calmly and rationally leading people to question their preconceptions, accept new information, and eventually change their beliefs. Truth at Work shows that by moving from confrontations to conversations, from feelings to facts, and from diatribe to dialogue, you can get everyone to hear and accept hard truths. You’ll learn: • How psychological phenomena like cognitive dissonance, the Dunning-Kruger effect, and selective perception cause people to deny, resist or attack the truth • How to delayer your conversations into 4 parts (Facts, Interpretations, Reactions, Ends) and which pieces you should and shouldn’t share • How the 5-part I.D.E.A.S. Script can make someone a willing participant in a truthful dialogue • How to assess if your current approach is too tough or too soft • A checklist for diagnosing whether you need a one-time talk or multi-conversation process • How Structured Listening helps you calmly and logically control volatile conversations • The 7 phrases that make people defensive (and what you should say instead) • And much more! Whether you’re trying to gain acceptance for a brilliant discovery, convince an employee to get to work on time, stop your coworker from being a jerk or urge your boss to tell you the truth about why they’re mad, Truth At Work makes even the toughest messages easy to hear.

Download and read online Pushed in PDF and EPUB A groundbreaking narrative investigation of childbirth in the age of machines, malpractice, and managed care, Pushed presents the complete picture of maternity care in America. From inside the operating room of a hospital with a 44% Cesarean rate to the living room floor of a woman who gives birth with an illegal midwife, Block exposes a system in which few women have an optimal experience. Pushed surveys the public health impact of routine labor inductions, C-sections, and epidurals, but also examines childbirth as a women's rights issue: Do women even have the right to choose a normal birth? Is that right being upheld? A wake-up call for our times, Block's gripping research reveals that while emergency obstetric care is essential, we are overusing medical technology at the expense of maternal and infant health.

Download and read online War and Media in PDF and EPUB The trinity of government, military and publics has been drawn together into immediate and unpredictable relationships in a "new media ecology" that has ushered in new asymmetries in the waging of war and terror. To help us understand these new relationships, Andrew Hoskins and Ben O'Loughlin here provide a timely, comprehensive and highly readable survey of the field of war and media. War is diffused through a complex mesh of our everyday media. Paradoxically, this both facilitates and contains the presence and power of enemies near and far. The conventions of so-called traditional warfare have been splintered by the availability and connectivity of the principal locus of war today: the electronic and digital media. Hoskins and O'Loughlin identify and illuminate the conditions of what they term "diffused war" and the new challenges it raises for the actors who wage and counter warfare, for their agents and mechanisms of the new media and for mass publics. This book offers an invaluable review of the key literature and presents a fresh approach to the understanding of the dynamic relationships between war and media. It will be welcomed by a broad range of students taking courses on war and media and related modules, especially in media, communication and cultural studies, politics and international relations, sociology, journalism, and security studies.
