Ethics and Drug Resistance: Collective Responsibility for Global Public Health - Euzebiusz Jamrozik,Michael Selgelid Preview:

This Open Access volume provides in-depth analysis of the wide range of ethical issues associated with drug-resistant infectious diseases. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is widely recognized to be one of the greatest threats to global public health in coming decades; and it has thus become a major topic of discussion among leading bioethicists and scholars from related disciplines including economics, epidemiology, law, and political theory. Topics covered in this volume include responsible use of antimicrobials; control of multi-resistant hospital-acquired infections; privacy and data collection; antibiotic use in childhood and at the end of life; agricultural and veterinary sources of resistance; resistant HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria; mandatory treatment; and trade-offs between current and future generations. As the first book focused on ethical issues associated with drug resistance, it makes a timely contribution to debates regarding practice and policy that are of crucial importance to global public health in the 21st century..

Routledge Handbook of Nuclear Proliferation and Policy - Joseph F. Pilat,Nathan E. Busch Preview:

This new Handbook is a comprehensive examination of the rich and complex issues of nuclear proliferation in the early 21st century. The future of the decades-long effort to prevent the further spread of weapons of mass destruction is at a crossroads today. If international nonproliferation efforts are to be successful, an integrated, multi-tiered response will almost certainly be necessary. A serious, thorough, and clear-eyed examination of the range of threats, challenges, and opportunities facing the international community is a necessary first step. This Handbook, which presents the most up-to-date analysis and policy recommendations on these critical issues by recognized, leading scholars in the field, intends to provide such an examination. The volume is divided into three major parts: Part I presents detailed threat assessments of proliferation risks across the globe, including specific regions and countries. Part II explains the various tools developed by the international community to address these proliferation threats. Part III addresses the proliferation risks and political challenges arising from nuclear energy production, including potential proliferation by aspiring states and nonstate groups. This Handbook will be of great interest to students and practitioners of nuclear proliferation, arms control, global governance, diplomacy, and global security and IR general..

Petit manuel de résistance contemporaine - Cyril Dion Preview:

Pendant deux ans, Cyril Dion a sillonné 18 pays, près de 200 villes pour accompagner le succès de son documentaire Demain, co-réalisé avec Mélanie Laurent. Pendant ce temps, la litanie des mauvaises nouvelles s'allongeait : accélération du réchauffement planétaire, disparition de 80% des insectes en Europe et de 50% des populations de vertébrés ces 40 dernières années, explosion des inégalités, des migrations, des déchets... Comment faire face à une telle conjonction de catastrophes alors que de nombreux scientifiques parlent désormais d'une poignée d'années pour réagir ? Dès lors, n'est-il pas nécessaire d'entrer en résistance contre la logique à l'origine de cette destruction massive, frénétique, de nos écosystèmes. Sans chercher à apporter de réponses définitives, Cyril Dion propose de nombreuses pistes d'action : individuelles d'abord, dans l'espace de notre vie quotidienne, collectives ensuite, à l'échelle de nos quartiers, de nos villes, de nos territoires, et politiques enfin à travers des exemples de mobilisation à large échelle qui ont pu faire basculer des pays entiers. Plus encore, l'auteur nous invite à renouer avec notre élan vital, à mener une existence où chaque chose que nous faisons, depuis notre métier, jusqu'aux tâches les plus quotidiennes, participe à construire le monde dans lequel nous voulons vivre..

Integration of Insect-Resistant Genetically Modified Crops within IPM Programs - Jörg Romeis,Anthony M. Shelton,George Kennedy Preview:

Insect pests remain one of the main constraints to food and fiber production worldwide despite farmers deploying a range of techniques to protect their crops. Modern pest control is guided by the principles of integrated pest management (IPM) with pest resistant germplasm being an important part of the foundation. Since 1996, when the first genetically modified (GM) insect-resistant maize variety was commercialized in the USA, the area planted to insect-resistant GM varieties has grown dramatically, representing the fastest adoption rate of any agricultural technology in human history. The goal of our book is to provide an overview on the role insect-resistant GM plants play in different crop systems worldwide. We hope that the book will contribute to a more rational debate about the role GM crops can play in IPM for food and fiber production..

Handbook of Child and Adolescent Tuberculosis - Jeffrey R. Starke,Peter R. Donald Preview:

Tuberculosis remains one of the most prevalent, deadly, and underdiagnosed infectious diseases in the world. In children, this burden is doubly problematic because of the disease's unique clinical characteristics and its need for special public health and diagnostic techniques. After decades of relative inattention to these factors, childhood tuberculosis has now grown into an important area of competency for child health programs in low-burden areas, including the United States. The Handbook of Child and Adolescent Tuberculosis is a state of the art clinical reference written and edited by the world's leading experts in childhood tuberculosis. It offers clinicians in any geography or setting practical, evidence-based advice on all aspects of the disease, including its natural history, epidemiology, presentation, treatment, and prevention -- all in a format that synthesizes literature with the clinical experience of the leading authorities in this challenging field. As the need for childhood tuberculosis services in child health programs grows, this handbook provides a new benchmark for practitioners and trainees in pediatrics, infectious disease, pulmonary medicine, and public health to better understand this persisting and difficult disease..

Faire l’histoire de la Résistance - Laurent Douzou Preview:

Dès la Libération, « faire l’histoire de la Résistance » a été perçu comme une tâche posant des problèmes spécifiques aux historiens. On ne peut comprendre les vicissitudes d’une historiographie à la fois riche et complexe sans prendre en compte les moyens mis en œuvre pour faire face à ce défi, et notamment les travaux du Comité d’histoire de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale, qui pilota jusqu’en 1980 la plupart des travaux menés sur la Résistance. Pionnier par le recours aux enquêtes orales, unique par l’utilisation d’un réseau de correspondants régionaux, anciens résistants pour beaucoup, ce Comité est le signe le plus visible d’un phénomène plus général : l’implication des résistants et de leurs associations dans l’historiographie de la Résistance. Celle-ci a donc été dès l’origine au cœur de questions aujourd’hui ressassées : la relation conflictuelle entre histoire savante et mémoire individuelle et collective, la possibilité même d’une histoire du temps présent, les risques d’une histoire officielle – sachant que le Comité n’en était pas moins animé et piloté par des historiens professionnels, et non des moindres puisque Lucien Febvre en fut le premier président. Organisé par la Fondation de la Résistance et l’institut d’études politiques de Lyon, ce colloque avait donc pour enjeu d’évaluer le degré de pertinence de l’affirmation courante selon laquelle on serait passé progressivement « de la mémoire à l’histoire », de poser les jalons pour une étude dépassionnée des relations entre historiens et acteurs en histoire contemporaine et du lien entre évolution historiographique et demande sociale. Sans prétendre à l’exhaustivité, tant le champ couvert par le Comité fut vaste, les contributions rendent compte de sa genèse, de ses méthodes, de ses publications, des problèmes rencontrés pour accéder aux archives. Pour mettre en perspective son apport, d’autres acteurs de cette historiographie ont été évoqués aux niveaux régional et national mais aussi international avec les travaux des historiens anglo-saxons et le regard des historiens allemands. Des comparaisons avec la Belgique et l’Espagne ont enfin permis de mieux mesurer les problèmes communs à l’étude des résistances en Europe..

Structural Dynamics in Earthquake and Blast Resistant Design - BK Raghu Prasad Preview:

Focusing on the fundamentals of structural dynamics required for earthquake blast resistant design, Structural Dynamics in Earthquake and Blast Resistant Design initiates a new approach of blending a little theory with a little practical design in order to bridge this unfriendly gap, thus making the book more structural engineer-friendly. This is attempted by introducing the equations of motion followed by free and forced vibrations of SDF and MDF systems, D’Alembert’s principle, Duhammel’s integral, relevant impulse, pulse and sinusoidal inputs, and, most importantly, support motion and triangular pulse input required in earthquake and blast resistant designs, respectively. Responses of multistorey buildings subjected to earthquake ground motion by a well-known mode superposition technique are explained. Examples of real-size structures as they are being designed and constructed using the popular ETABS and STAAD are shown. Problems encountered in such designs while following the relevant codes of practice like IS 1893 2016 due to architectural constraints are highlighted. A very difficult constraint is in avoiding torsional modes in fundamental and first three modes, the inability to get enough mass participation, and several others. In blast resistant design the constraint is to model the blast effects on basement storeys (below ground level). The problem is in obtaining the attenuation due to the soil. Examples of inelastic hysteretic systems where top soft storey plays an important role in expending the input energy, provided it is not below a stiffer storey (as also required by IS 1893 2016), and inelastic torsional response of structures asymmetric in plan are illustrated in great detail. In both cases the concept of ductility is explained in detail. Results of response spectrum analyses of tall buildings asymmetric in plan constructed in Bengaluru using ETABS are mentioned. Application of capacity spectrum is explained and illustrated using ETABS for a tall building. Research output of retrofitting techniques is mentioned. Response spectrum analysis using PYTHON is illustrated with the hope that it could be a less expensive approach as it is an open source code. A new approach of creating a fictitious (imaginary) boundary to obtain blast loads on below-ground structures devised by the author is presented with an example. Aimed at senior undergraduates and graduates in civil engineering, earthquake engineering and structural engineering, this book: Explains in a simple manner the fundamentals of structural dynamics pertaining to earthquake and blast resistant design Illustrates seismic resistant designs such as ductile design philosophy and limit state design with the use of capacity spectrum Discusses frequency domain analysis and Laplace transform approach in detail Explains solutions of building frames using software like ETABS and STAAD Covers numerical simulation using a well-known open source tool PYTHON.

Résistance (1927-1943) - Pierre Brossolette,Guillaume Piketty Preview:

Intellectuel engagé puis journaliste, pionnier de la résistance intérieure devenu l’un des principaux artisans de l’unification de l’armée des ombres sous l’autorité gaullienne, Pierre Brossolette vécut passionnément avant de mourir tragiquement en 1944. Homme de plume autant que du verbe, mû par des idées anticonformistes et par un puissant désir de rénovation, il a légué plus de mille articles, chroniques radiophoniques, rapports ou discours. Vingt-six de ses textes parmi les plus évocateurs sont présentés dans ce recueil – dont la fameuse apologie aux « soutiers de la gloire » ou la lettre courageuse du 2 novembre 1942 au général de Gaulle. Écrits à des moments clefs de la vie de Brossolette ou en écho à des débats cruciaux, ils plongent au cœur des défis auxquels les Français, l’Europe et le monde furent confrontés durant l’entre-deux-guerres puis les années noires. « Comme le montrent les textes ici rassemblés et dont certains trouvent dans les temps actuels une résonance singulière, le parcours de vie accompli par Pierre Brossolette fut celui d’une intelligence en mouvement. Souhaitons qu’il soit un encouragement à adopter une attitude de “veilleur d’espoirs” et de responsabilité, seule réponse aux totalitarismes de toutes sortes. » G. P. Cette seconde édition est enrichie d’une nouvelle présentation de Pierre Brossolette par Guillaume Piketty. Elle éclaire les raisons d’un destin posthume contrasté avant la période de reconnaissance et les honneurs au Panthéon. Guillaume Piketty est Full Professor (histoire) à Sciences Po Paris et Visiting Professor à l’Université d’Oxford. Spécialiste du phénomène guerrier et du phénomène résistant au XXe siècle, il est notamment l’auteur d’une biographie de Pierre Brossolette..

Images des comportements sous l'Occupation - Jacqueline Sainclivier Preview:

L'analyse des comportements collectifs en France entre 1940 et 1944 pose des problèmes de méthode et d'interprétation. Leur exposition a fait l'objet d'un premier ouvrage paru en 2015 aux Presses universitaires de Rennes, sous la direction de Pierre Laborie et François Marcot. Ces problèmes se posent de façon encore plus aiguë à propos des représentations de ces comportements depuis la fin de la guerre. C'est l'objet du présent livre. Il analyse de façon critique les reconstructions mémorielles qui tiennent lieu de grilles de lecture des comportements des Français sous l'occupation allemande. Sa première partie aborde de front les représentations dominantes et revisite celles des principaux producteurs de mémoire – de Gaulle, le parti communiste – souvent présentés comme les responsables du mythe du « peuple résistant ». Elle réexamine les représentations d'acteurs collectifs spécifiques aux années noires : l'occupant lui-même, les femmes résistantes, les déportés. Elle décentre enfin notre regard en s'attachant aux mémoires régionales, négligées bien que toujours prégnantes, et par une comparaison avec la Belgique voisine. La deuxième partie explore la manière dont les savoirs sur les comportements collectifs sont transmis par les historiens eux-mêmes, ainsi que par les programmes et les manuels en usage dans l'Éducation nationale. Elle souligne combien cette transmission est souvent marquée par des simplifications et des idées reçues. Dans la même perspective, elle rend compte de vecteurs culturels jusqu'à présent peu pris en compte : les souvenirs des résistants, ceux des épurés, et les romans des années d'après-guerre..

Interactions insectes-plantes - Collectif Preview:

Malgré leur rôle primordial dans les écosystèmes, les insectes, qui représentent les trois quarts des espèces animales identifiées, sont encore mal connus. Leur relation avec le règne végétal et l'espèce humaine, que ce soit comme compétiteurs au niveau des cultures ou comme auxiliaires, notamment par la pollinisation, revêt pourtant une importance majeure. Pour mieux comprendre les grandes fonctions des insectes, leur fonctionnement individuel et populationnel, leurs interactions avec les composantes de l'écosystème - en particulier les plantes - et plus globalement leur intégration dans les milieux naturels et anthropisés, cet ouvrage propose ainsi la première synthèse en français sur un domaine ayant connu récemment d'importants développements. Il offre une revue complète et actualisée des grands courants de pensée, des approches et des découvertes dans les différents champs disciplinaires : physiologie animale et végétale, éthologie, écologie chimique, biologie évolutive, agronomie, paléoentomologie... Il présente par ailleurs les multiples applications des recherches pour réduire l'impact des insectes ravageurs sur les cultures, tout en limitant l'usage des insecticides. Des questions souvent sujettes à controverse sont revisitées à la lumière des connaissances scientifiques actuelles : plantes transgéniques, impact des changements climatiques sur l'extension des aires de distribution de ravageurs ou de vecteurs... Illustrée de nombreuses figures et photos, cette somme à vocation pédagogique s'adresse aux étudiants, enseignants et chercheurs, mais aussi à tous les lecteurs intéressés par les relations complexes entre le monde des insectes et le règne végétal..

Earthquake-Resistant Structures - Mohiuddin Ali Khan Preview:

Earthquake engineering is the ultimate challenge for structural engineers. Even if natural phenomena involve great uncertainties, structural engineers need to design buildings, bridges, and dams capable of resisting the destructive forces produced by them. These disasters have created a new awareness about the disaster preparedness and mitigation. Before a building, utility system, or transportation structure is built, engineers spend a great deal of time analyzing those structures to make sure they will perform reliably under seismic and other loads. The purpose of this book is to provide structural engineers with tools and information to improve current building and bridge design and construction practices and enhance their sustainability during and after seismic events. In this book, Khan explains the latest theory, design applications and Code Provisions. Earthquake-Resistant Structures features seismic design and retrofitting techniques for low and high raise buildings, single and multi-span bridges, dams and nuclear facilities. The author also compares and contrasts various seismic resistant techniques in USA, Russia, Japan, Turkey, India, China, New Zealand, and Pakistan. Written by a world renowned author and educator Seismic design and retrofitting techniques for all structures Tools improve current building and bridge designs Latest methods for building earthquake-resistant structures Combines physical and geophysical science with structural engineering.

How Can I Get Better? - Richard Horowitz Preview:

AN INSTANT NATIONAL BESTSELLER! “Horowitz is one of the most prominent ‘Lyme literate’ physicians...patients wait for months to see him, and several told me that he had essentially cured them of a disease that nobody else seemed able to treat.” —The New Yorker “If you have suffered from unexplained, chronic or hard-to-treat illness, this book is your pathway to health.” —Mark Hyman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Blood Sugar Solution on Why Can’t I Get Better? From Dr. Richard I. Horowitz, one of the country's foremost doctors, comes a ground-breaking book about diagnosing, treating and healing Lyme, and peeling away the layers that lead to chronic disease. Are you sick, but can’t find any answers why? Do you have a seemingly unconnected collection of symptoms that leave doctors guessing? Or have you been diagnosed, but found that none of the treatments seems to make a difference? You may have Lyme disease and not even know it. Known as “the great imitator,” Lyme disease and its associated co-infections can mimic the symptoms of and often be misdiagnosed as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, and even depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and psychosis. In his landmark book, Why Can’t I Get Better?: Solving the Mystery of Lyme & Chronic Disease, renowned internist and leading world expert Dr. Horowitz introduced his revolutionary plan for treating Lyme disease, and chronic diseases in general. Now, in this new handbook How Can I Get Better?, Dr. Horowitz updates his research and offers a direct, actionable step-by-step plan for implementing his 16 MSIDS Diagnostic Map. You will find: *The latest pertinent information on the most important scientific discoveries *Emerging research on bacterial “persisters”—bacteria that can survive antibiotics—and new therapies to get rid of them *A seven-step action plan that patients and doctors can follow to ensure better health..
