With her confidence shattered and her future uncertain, on impulse she rents a cabin for a year on Australia's Great Barrier Reef. However Turtle Island, alive with sea birds and nesting Green turtles, is not the retreat she expected. Here she finds love—for the eccentric islanders who become her family; for Tom, the laid-back turtle whisperer; and for the turtles whose ancient mothering instincts move her to tears. But Anna finds that even on her idyllic drop in the ocean there is pain, and as the months fly past her dream for a new life is threatened by a darkness that challenges everything she has come to believe about the power of love. Evocative and thought-provoking, A Drop in the Ocean is a story about second chances and hard lessons learned in the gentlest of ways.

The Ocean in a Drop explores how young people have contributed significantly to society in the past, and suggests ways in which they can take centre stage again. Traditionally, society has legitimized four spaces for young people: the family, friends, education/careers, and leisure. The book introduces the concept of the 5th Space—a space that goes beyond the commonly used terms of volunteerism and Active Citizenship and focuses on three critical aspects of youth development: understanding the Self, building meaningful relationships, and impacting Society. By facilitating young people to connect their selves with society and by developing skills, values, and attitudes that enable them to impact the world around them, 5th Spaces become a critical strategy for renewing society. From the lessons learnt from the Indian Independence movement, theories of youthhood, interviews with key stakeholders, and Pravah's own experiences of working with young people, the book argues that youth once again need to be at the forefront of nation building.

Even though she never bore a child physically, Gonxha Agnes Bojaxhiu deserves the name by which everyone knows her: Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Her sayings reveal the qualities that we treasure in every mother: playfulness, compassion, humility, calmness, evenhandedness, the ability to reprove wrongdoing with firmness and love, and the ability to maintain a sense of humor even in the most dire circumstances. In this collection, Mother Teresa remains alive, and through her Jesus whom she so loved, and so wants us to love.

Tired of red tape tying up his cut-price care homes in Thailand, failed union demagogue Arnie Ratledge takes to the high seas. Launching hugely cost effective care-home ships for the elderly, he cunningly taps into the fashion for green energy, and takes it one stage further: milking what little energy the old have left. And when they die, there's A Drop in the Ocean for each corpse. Even the fish are happy with the whole cheap-as-chips operation. With his trademark ground-breaking humour, Maurice Jones strips bare the madness at the heart of 21st century fads while giving political correctness a mighty shove towards the dustbin of history.

Fractured Minds

A Case-Study Approach to Clinical Neuropsychology
Author: Jenni A. Ogden
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 0198038275
Category: Medical
Page: 416
View: 9942
Fractured Minds introduces the reader to clinical neuropsychology through vivid case descriptions of adults who have suffered brain damage. At one level, this is a book about the courage, humor, and determination to triumph over illness and disability that many "ordinary people" demonstrate when coping with the extraordinary stress of a brain disorder. On another level, it is a well-referenced and up-to-date textbook that provides a holistic view of the practice of clinical neuropsychology. Included are reader-friendly descriptions and explanations of a wide range of neurological disorders and neuroscientific concepts. Two introductory chapters are followed by 17 chapters that each focus on a specific disorder and include research, clinical assessment, rehabilitation, and a detailed case study. Disorders range across the full spectrum from common ones such as traumatic brain injury and dementia, to rare disorders such as autotopagnosia. Each of the 16 chapters retained from the first edition has been revised to reflect current research and clinical advances. Three new chapters on multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and Huntington's disease incorporate discussion of important current topics such as genetically-transmitted diseases, genetic counseling, gene transplantation, functional neurosurgery, and the complex ethical issues that go hand-in-hand with these new techniques. This informative and engaging book will be of interest to students of clinical psychology, neuropsychology, and neurology, health professionals who work with neurological patients, neurological patients and their families, and lay readers who are simply fascinated by the mind and brain.
