Wired has astutely described Palm's position in a recent article: "On its way to becoming the bestselling hand-held computer of all time, the 3Com PalmPilot has spawned an intense, emotional, and fanatical developer following not seen since the glory days of the Mac." (Wired, 20 Feb. 98). Palm Programming should be eagerly accepted by programmers because the authors worked closely with Palm to ensure that the book is tailored exactly to the needs of the ever-growing group of Palm developers. As nothing but some piecemeal documentation exists currently, this book provides a much needed solution to the Palm developers. In fact, Palm uses this book as their official developer's guide and will be using it in the future as a key part of their training materials for developers. There are currently no books on Palm programming (and we know of none that are planned). The only way to learn is by using the reference material published by Palm (available freely on their Web site), the tutorial they provide, or various Palm programming FAQs compiled by third parties.

PALOMINO Laura is in her fifties, a gynecologist now barred from her profession. For ten years, she has lived alone on a remote valley farm in self-imposed isolation. Then, returning by ship from a journey around the world (meant as an act of self-healing, -to reawaken her senses), Laura sees Andrea, a young woman whose golden hair and complexion remind her of the beautiful palomino horses that run together in paddocks in clear view of her verandah. Later, by chance, the two women meet at a dinner party, and to Laura's delight, Andrea insists on an extended visit to Laura's farm. Here, they share early morning walks in the jarrah forest, evenings of music and intimate conversation, and much reading-of diaries and letters, in particular. In this idyllic setting, amid orchards and rain storms, each woman seeks to make herself known to the other. The passion that blossoms is rare and deeply felt. As time passes, events long suppressed are revealed, unorthodox entanglements of friendship and love and a bizarre medical accident (or was it murder?).

Jaine Austen is looking forward to an indulgent spa getaway-until she learns it's more about deprivation than relaxation. Between miniscule meals and a deadly brush with fame, surviving this vacation will be no piece of cake. . . When Jaine's friend Lance surprises her with a trip to The Haven, an ber-luxe health spa on the California coast, she and her feline pal Prozac are eager to hit the road and bask in a week of pampering and pedicures. But upon their arrival, she discovers that this oasis in the hills is merely a fat farm in disguise, complete with celery-juice cocktails, humiliating weigh-ins, and a zero-tolerance position on carbs. And as she gets to know her fellow inmates, she realizes 300-calorie dinners aren't the craziest thing she'll be dealing with. Among her bulge-battling companions is Mallory Francis, a B-list movie star with a knack for making frenemies with everyone she meets. When she's found strangled during a seaweed wrap gone awry, Jaine is hard-pressed to think of anyone who couldn't have done it. Perhaps it was Kendra, Mallory's bitter sister-slash-personal assistant. Or maybe Clint, a macho former co-star whose dirtiest secret is in danger of being undressed in the drama queen's upcoming memoir. Or was it The Havens' pretty young masseuse, driven to commit a crime of passion when Mallory seduced her aerobics instructor husband Sven? With the suspects mounting faster than her hunger pangs, Jaine doesn't know who to believe. And when her search for truth, justice and contraband calories leads her straight to the cold-blooded killer, it seems murder may be on the menu once again. . .

This ambitious collection of essential yet novel methods for pancreatic cancer research or cancer research in general features an outstanding cast of authors who are esteemed leaders in the field. The authors provide a broad range of methods for molecular, biochemical, pathological, and statistical analysis of sporadic and familial pancreatic cancer, methods that can be applied not only to basic, but also to translational pancreatic research. Topics covered include in vitro cell cultures, in vivo mouse models, protein studies, mutation analysis, and treatment development.
From the discovery of Pdx1, the first "master gene" of pancreatic development, to the most recent findings on the role of microRNAs in beta cell homeostasis, the last fifteen years have seen an unprecedented advance in our understanding of the precise development and organization of the many different cell types that make up the pancreas. It is now widely acknowledged that the therapeutic differentiation of stem cells into pancreatic cells is an ambitious endeavor that will not succeed without a thorough understanding of the molecular processes underlying the native development of the organ. This book, aimed at experts and students alike, offers a comprehensive review of the state of the art in both pancreatic development and regeneration. The many strategies to differentiate adult and embryonic stem cells into pancreatic beta cells are also discussed in the context of potential therapeutic interventions for type I diabetes.
