Human Accomplishment

The Pursuit of Excellence in the Arts and Sciences, 800 B.C. to 1950

A sweeping cultural survey reminiscent of Barzun's From Dawn to Decadence. "At irregular times and in scattered settings, human beings have achieved great things. Human Accomplishment is about those great things, falling in the domains known as the arts and sciences, and the people who did them.' So begins Charles Murray's unique account of human excellence, from the age of Homer to our own time. Employing techniques that historians have developed over the last century but that have rarely been applied to books written for the general public, Murray compiles inventories of the people who have been essential to the stories of literature, music, art, philosophy, and the sciences—a total of 4,002 men and women from around the world, ranked according to their eminence. The heart of Human Accomplishment is a series of enthralling descriptive chapters: on the giants in the arts and what sets them apart from the merely great; on the differences between great achievement in the arts and in the sciences; on the meta-inventions, 14 crucial leaps in human capacity to create great art and science; and on the patterns and trajectories of accomplishment across time and geography. Straightforwardly and undogmatically, Charles Murray takes on some controversial questions. Why has accomplishment been so concentrated in Europe? Among men? Since 1400? He presents evidence that the rate of great accomplishment has been declining in the last century, asks what it means, and offers a rich framework for thinking about the conditions under which the human spirit has expressed itself most gloriously. Eye-opening and humbling, Human Accomplishment is a fascinating work that describes what humans at their best can achieve, provides tools for exploring its wellsprings, and celebrates the continuing common quest of humans everywhere to discover truths, create beauty, and apprehend the good.

Fad diets may come and go but healthy lifestyle changes will always be beneficial for your health and wellbeing. Eating a diet rich in refined sugars and processed carbohydrates, especially for a long period of time, will only increase your risk for chronic disease and reduce your lifespan. If you want to maximize your health and longevity, you must make a change and start treating your body right. Following a healthy and nutritious diet is important for everyone, but particularly so for people who are already suffering from chronic diseases like diabetes. Diabetes is a chronic disease caused by insufficient insulin production or a reduced response to insulin. When you eat food, your body breaks it down into its most basic components - glucose molecules - which are then used for energy. The pancreas creates an enzyme called insulin that helps to facilitate this process but the body's response to insulin may become reduced when you follow a diet full of high-glycemic and processed foods. Diabetes is a serious condition that can lead to dangerous complications if not managed properly. What many people don't know, however, is that not only can diabetes be managed but, in many cases, it can be reversed entirely. Making healthy changes to your diet and lifestyle can help to temper certain risk factors for the disease such as obesity and high blood sugar levels - that is where the paleo diet comes in. The paleo diet is naturally rich in nutrients but free from refined sugars, processed carbs, high-glycemic grains, and other unhealthy foods. Removing these foods from your diet and fueling your body with healthy nutrition is the key to managing diabetes. If you're looking for some miracle cure or an exotic ingredient that will help you kick your diabetes to the curb, you won't find it here. What you will find, however, is a valuable resource - a wealth of information about diabetes and about the paleo diet. You'll also receive helpful tips and tricks for getting started. Here is an overview of what you'll find in this book: An introduction to Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes A brief overview of the paleo diet A look at the benefits of the paleo diet for diabetics A comprehensive list of paleo foods and foods you should avoid A list of helpful tips for getting started on the paleo diet Over 75 collection of paleo recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner By the time you finish reading this book, you will have a better understanding not only of your diabetes, but of what you can do to manage it or even reverse it. Switching to the paleo diet is not as difficult or complicated as you might imagine - by making small, manageable changes over time you can ease yourself into the diet and that will make it easier for you to stick to it in the long term. So, if you are ready to take back control of your health and start doing something that is good for your body, this is the book for you. Don't delay any longer - open the book and start reading!

The book codifies the vast technical and culinary knowledge for the many professionals who develop and market foods. While many reference books on spices include alphabetized descriptions, the similarity between this book and others ends there.

The author includes a description of spice properties, both chemical and sensory, and the culinary information that will aid in product development. She also explains how each spice is used around the world, lists the popular global spice blends that contain the spice, describes each spice’s folklore and traditional medicine usage, and provides translations of each spice’s name in global languages. New to this edition is coverage of spice labeling and a chapter on commercial seasoning formulas. Going beyond the scope of most spice books, this reference describes ingredients found among the world’s cuisines that are essential in providing flavors, textures, colors, and nutritional value to foods. It explores how these ingredients are commonly used with spices to create authentic or new flavors. The author has created a complete reference book that includes traditionally popular spices and flavorings as well as those that are emerging in the US to create authentic or fusion products.

Integrative Cardiology

A New Therapeutic Vision

ISBN: 331940010X

Category: Medical

Page: 276

View: 1831

This book is a detailed guide to a new integrative approach to the prevention and treatment of various cardiac disorders and risk factors, including coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, dyslipidemia, and hypertension. This approach combines various strategies, including metabolic cardiology, low-dose medicine, exercise programs, stress management programs, evaluation for inherited risk factors, and various other healing modalities. Metabolic cardiology focuses on the prevention, management, and treatment of cardiovascular disease at the cellular level through biochemical interventions with nutritional supplements that can promote energy production in the heart. Low-dose medicine, on the other hand, interprets pathological phenomena as an imbalance in intercellular signaling that may be corrected through the administration of low physiological doses of messenger molecules. Therapies outside of mainstream medicine may also be deployed in integrative cardiology, for example acupuncture, herbal medicine, and homeopathy. Integrative Cardiology will be of interest to all practitioners wishing to learn about an approach that incorporates the incredible advances in medication and technology with a focus on nutrition, lifestyle, and mind–body influences.

This book is a survey of some aspects of current knowledge on regional Cerebral Blood Flow (rCBF), mainly as studied by the isotope clearance method. Although both theoretical and methodological problems are discussed, attention is mainly dedicated to data obtained from clinical studies. The papers which make up this book were presented at the International Symposium on the Clinical Applications of Isotope Clearance Measurement of Cerebral Blood Flow, held in Mainz, Western Germany, on April 10-12, 1969. The previous meetings on Cerebral Blood Flow, held in Lund in 1964* and in Lund and Copenhagen 1968**, had shown that the moment had come to concentrate on the possibilities of introducing rCBF measurements into clinical routine. This is why in the Mainz Symposium attention was initially focused on methodological aspects. This is also why theoretical problems of physiology of CBF were not emphasized. Finally, this explains why such topics as cerebrovascular disease, head trauma, coma, carotid surgery, brain tumors and intracranial pressure were given pride of place. However a survey of the clinical aspects of rCBF measurements would not be complete without an account of the application of such measurements to monitor cerebral circulatory changes during anesthesia and therapeutic procedures like, for instance, hyperventilation and hyperbaric treatment. Furthermore, it is now possible to obtain data from correlative rCBF studies per formed before, during and after surgical operations on the human brain.

As someone who was trained in the clinical sdentific tradition it took me several years to start to appreciate that food was more than a collection of nutrients, and that most people did not make their choices of what to eat on the biologically rational basis of nutritional composition. This realiza tion helped tobring me to an understanding of why people didn't always eat what (I believed) was good for them, and why the patients I had seen in hospital as often as not had failed to follow the dietary advice I had so confidently given. When I entered the field of health education I quickly discovered the farnaus World Health Organization definition of health as being a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease. Health was a triangle -and I had been guilty of virtu ally ignoring two sides of that triangle. As I became involved in practical nutrition education initiatives the deficiencies of an approach based on giving information about nutrition and physical health became more and more apparent. The children whom I saw in schools knew exactly what to say when asked to describe a nutritious diet: they could recite the food guide and list rich sources of vitamins and minerals; but none of this intellectual knowledge was reflected in their own actual eating habits.
