Description : “I was up all night reading. I laughed, cried and my heart was touched. My friend recently began to ignore me and doesn’t want me to visit.... Your blog really made me see what a survivor sees and feel what they feel. Because of your willingness to share, I now know that I’m doing the right thing by hanging in there.” —Jada Thompson, a Reader “Oh Joyce.... Really touched my heart. There are no “happy words” to make this “better”. But you are facing it head-on, win or lose, and that says so much about your character.” —Anna Bofill, IT Professional “Takes my breath away. Powerful beyond words. Really a gem!” —Judy Freeman, Retired Teacher You have expanded my knowledge greatly! Keep up the good research and writing! —Laurel Nichols, Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital “I was a reporter and I won an AP award [for an] editorial in ‘99....

In this book Sidney Rosen has collected over one hundred of the tales. Presented verbatim and accompanied by Dr. Rosen's commentary, they are grouped under such headings as Motivating Tales, Reframing, and Capturing the Innocent Eye.

Description : "In Tales from my Stethoscope, Bruna, an Advanced Life Support paramedic with more than 23 years' experience, takes you behind the scenes of accidents, sudden illness, shootings and human revelry gone wrong. You'll experience the fun and excitementƯ of Johannesburg on a Saturday night \2026 but you'll also go to the lonely places where old people suffer in silenceƯ and children aren't properly cared for. You'll read about running a clinic on a mine in deepest Africa and being the resident paramedic on a geo-survey ship plying the waters around the globe. You'll fly helicopters over cities praying that the patient survives, and you'll be there in the middle of farming country helping to amputate a leg caught in a harvester. If you can stomach the drama, the blood, the grief, and the quirky humour used to get through harrowing situations, you'll get to the end of these tales with a deeper understanding of the human condition and renewed admiration and gratitude for those who listen and act when we call out in distress"--Cover.

Description : The nearly 350 humorous, heartwarming, and sometimes tragic accounts presented in William Lynwood Montell's latest book, Tales from Kentucky Doctors, offer an unusual perspective on the culture and tradition of Kentucky health-care practice. From the laughable to the laudable, Tales from Kentucky Doctors present illuminating portraits of doctors and patients, drawing stories from physicians with lifetimes of experience serving Kentucky families. In chapter 2, doctors recall the successes and failures that shaped their early careers. For Dr. Baretta R. Casey of Hazard, becoming a doctor was a difficult journey. Already married and with a child, Casey enrolled in college at age thirty, later completed medical school, and began a successful career as a family practitioner in the 1990s. Though patient visitations and doctors' prescriptions are recorded on account ledgers, personal relationships and memories are not part of medical records. The section "Personal Practice" gives a glimpse of the intimate relationships doctors form with their communities. "I doubt that any individual was nearer to the family than the family doctor," Dr. W. L. Tyler says in one story. For many towns, family physicians were heroes. Dr. James S. Brashear relates the challenges of practicing in Central City, a coal mining town, recalling an incident in which he saved the lives of two miners. Handed down to Montell in the oral tradition, the tales presented in this collection represent every part of the state. Personal experiences, humorous anecdotes, and local legends make it a fascinating panorama of Kentucky physicians and of the communities they served.

Description : The modern landscape of American entertainment is filled with commentary on the state of the union. Viewers turn to The Daily Show instead of Fox or CNN, satirical films such as Wag the Dog, cartoons like The Simpsons, or controversial action dramas similar to 24 in order to learn more about current events in the United States. Popular culture is educating America more than the nightly news, aiding viewers in their quest to understand the American political system. In Homer Simpson Goes to Washington: American Politics through Popular Culture, Joseph J. Foy and other contributing scholars offer diverse political perspectives through the framework of popular culture. From the classic film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington to the cutting-edge television program Chappelle's Show, a wide spectrum of entertainment media is used to explain the complexities of U.S. politics and how audiences engage with them. Popular culture and politics have never been so intertwined in the American consciousness as they are today. As political knowledge becomes increasingly fragmented, Homer Simpson Goes to Washington explains how popular culture can actually help connect people to their government.
