Donald Trump and the 2018 Midterm Battle for Central New York (Palgrave Studies In Us Elections Ser.)

by Luke Perry

Luke Perry’s inaugural Pivot in the Palgrave Studies in US Elections series examines the impact of Donald Trump on the 2018 midterm campaigns in Central New York, particularly competitive campaigns for NY-19, NY-22, and NY-24. Providing a contextual foundation for these races—considering factors such as incumbency advantage, history of party control of the seat, registered party members, statewide electoral norms, fundraising, and polling—Donald Trump and the 2018 Midterm Battle for Central New York then analyzes the positions and rhetoric of these GOP reelection campaigns, paying particular attention to the continuity and variance in relation to Trump’s personal, populist, and negative campaign style. When examined alongside the results of the midterm election, the outcomes illustrated how the president hurt more than helped House GOP incumbents, revealed the quality of candidates, proved how campaigns and grassroots organizing matter, and demonstrated that moderate Democrats were more successful than progressive ones.

Development in Turbulent Times: The Many Faces Of Inequality Within Europe

by Paul Dobrescu

This open access book explores the most recent trends in the EU in terms of development, progress, and performance. Ten years after the 2008 economic crisis, and amidst a digital revolution that is intensifying the development race, the European Union, and especially Central and Eastern Europe, are ardently searching for their development priorities. <P><P> Against this background, by relying on a cross-national perspective, the authors reflect upon the developmental challenges of the moment, such as sustainable development, reducing inequality, ensuring social cohesion, and driving the digital revolution. They particularly focus on the relation between the less-developed Eastern part of the EU and its more developed Western counterpart, and discuss the consequences of this development gap in detail. <P><P> Lastly, the book presents a range of case studies from different areas of governance, such as economy and commerce, health services, education, migration and public opinion in order to investigate the trends most likely to impact the European Union's medium and long-term development.

Data, Engineering and Applications: Volume 2

by Geetam Singh Tomer Sanjeev Sharma Jitendra Agrawal Rajesh Kumar Shukla

This book presents a compilation of current trends, technologies, and challenges in connection with Big Data.

Biochemistry and Cell Biology of Ageing: Part II Clinical Science (Subcellular Biochemistry Ser. #91)

by Viktor I. Korolchuk J. Robin Harris

This volume of the subcellular Biochemistry series will attempt to bridge the gap between the subcellular events that are related to aging as they were described in the first volume of this set of two books and the reality of aging as this is seen in clinical practice. All chapters will start from the biochemistry or cell biology, where the data is available and work up towards the understanding that we have of aging in the various areas that are related to the subject. Key focus points for this volume are nutrition, external factors and genetics on aging. There will also be chapters that will focus on various organs or tissues in which aging has been well studied, like the eyes, the muscles, the immune system and the bones. The aim of the book project and the book project that is published in concert with this volume is to bring the subcellular and clinical areas into closer contact.

Becoming a Queen in Early Modern Europe: East And West (Queenship And Power Ser.)

by Katarzyna Kosior

Queens of Poland are conspicuously absent from the study of European queenship—an absence which, together with early modern Poland’s marginal place in the historiography, results in a picture of European royal culture that can only be lopsided and incomplete. <P><P>Katarzyna Kosior cuts through persistent stereotypes of an East-West dichotomy and a culturally isolated early modern Poland to offer a groundbreaking comparative study of royal ceremony in Poland and France. The ceremonies of becoming a Jagiellonian or Valois queen, analysed in their larger European context, illuminate the connections that bound together monarchical Europe. These ceremonies are a gateway to a fuller understanding of European royal culture, demonstrating that it is impossible to make claims about European queenship without considering eastern Europe.

Ziekten in de huisartspraktijk (5e druk)

by E.H. van de Lisdonk W.J.H.M. van den Bosch A.L.M. Lagro-Janssen H. J. Schers

In 1971 werd de eerste continue morbiditeitregistratie in Nederland gestart, de CMR-Nijmegen. Sindsdien leggen de huisartsen uit de vier deelnemende praktijken alle gezondheidsstoornissen vast die de patiënten uit deze praktijken doormaken en die bij hen zijn vastgesteld door de eigen huisarts, waarnemend huisartsen, praktijkassistenten en medisch specialisten. Uitgaande van dit inmiddels zeer grote en rijke databestand beschrijven de CMRartsen in dit boek meer dan 150 ziekten en aandoeningen. Zij bespreken klinisch beeld, beloop, prognose en behandeling in relatie tot de epidemiologische kenmerken van deze ziekten en aandoeningen. Centraal staan de veranderingen in de frequentie van vóórkomen in de loop van de registratieperiode en de incidentie- en prevalentiecijfers naar leeftijd en geslacht. Deze worden, waar relevant, aangevuld met gegevens over het vóórkomen naar jaargetijde en sociaal-economische klasse. De definitieve teksten in dit boek zijn totstandgekomen in een intensief proces van discussie en bijstelling, waardoor er een aanzienlijke hoeveelheid huisartservaring in is verwerkt. In deze vijfde druk van Ziekten in de huisartspraktijk zijn de registratiegegevens van 1985 tot en met 2006 opgenomen en de nieuwste inzichten verwerkt. Bovendien zijn de teksten aangescherpt en gestroomlijnd met de inhoud van de NHGstandaarden. De redacteuren en auteurs zijn allen huisarts, voor het merendeel verbonden aan de Afdeling Huisartsgeneeskunde van het UMC St Radboud te Nijmegen.

Klinische anatomie en embryologie

by Hans J. ten Donkelaar Roelof-Jan Oostra

Anatomie en embryologie nemen een centrale plaats in binnen het curriculum geneeskunde. Om inzicht te krijgen in afwijkingen en ziekten van het lichaam is kennis van anatomie en embryologie onmisbaar. Klinische anatomie en embryologie onderscheidt zich door de ruime aandacht voor toepassing van de anatomie, inclusief de neuroanatomie, in de kliniek en door het veelvuldig gebruik van beeldvormende technieken zoals computertomografie (CT) en nucleaire magnetische resonantie (MRI). De ontwikkelingen op het terrein van de embryologie die uitgebreid in het boek aan de orde komen, geven de lezer meer inzicht in de anatomie en de pathologie.De vierde, herziene druk van Klinische anatomie en embryologie is ingrijpend gewijzigd. Verschillende nieuwe medewerkers werden aangetrokken om een aantal hoofdstukken te herzien. De oorspronkelijke hoofdstukken 1 (Inleiding tot de anatomie) en 2 (De orgaanstelsels van het lichaam) zijn tot één, kleiner hoofdstuk 1 (Algemene anatomie) omgewerkt. Ook het hoofdstuk Algemene embryologie (nu hoofdstuk 2) is ingrijpend gewijzigd. De speciële hoofdstukken 3 tot en met 10 zijn in grote lijnen gehandhaafd. Een belangrijke verbetering in de vierde druk is de toepassing van kleur, niet alleen in foto's, maar ook in de embryologie en de topografische anatomie. De spiertabellen zijn verder uitgewerkt en voorzien van nieuwe illustraties.De vierde druk is opgenomen in StudieCloud, een nieuwe online-leeromgeving met bondige samenvattingen van de verschillende hoofdstukken, interactieve toetsvragen, informatieve deeplinks voor verrijkingen op deelgebieden en een onlineversie van het boek.Klinische anatomie en embryologie is een compleet studieboek voor studenten geneeskunde, tandheelkunde, biomedische wetenschappen, gezondheidswetenschappen en fysiotherapie. Het sluit uitstekend aan bij de nationale ontwikkelingen in het onderwijs. Ook is het geschikt als naslagwerk voor de praktiserende arts.
