Deadhouse: Life in a Coroner's Office chronicles the exploits of a diverse team of investigators at a coroner's office in Pittsburgh. Ed Strimlan is a doctor who never got to practice medicine. Instead he discovers how people died. Mike Chichwak is a stolid ex-paramedic, respected around the office for his compassion and doggedness. Tiffani Hunt is 21, a single mother who questions whether she wants to spend her nights around dead bodies. All three deputy coroners share one trait: a compulsive curiosity. A good thing too, because any observation at a death scene can prove meaningful. A bag of groceries standing on a kitchen counter, the milk turning sour. A broken lamp lying on the carpet of an otherwise tidy living room. When they approach a corpse, the investigators consider everything. Is the victim face-up or down? How stiff are the limbs? Are the hands dirty or clean? By the time they bag the body and load it into the coroner's wagon, Tiffani, Ed, and Mike have often unearthed intimate details that are unknown even to the victim's family and friends. The intrigues of investigating death help make up for the bad parts of the job. There are plenty of burdens - grief-stricken families, decomposed bodies, tangled local politics, and gore. And maybe worst of all is the ever-present reminder of mortality and human frailness. Deadhouse also chronicles the evolution of forensic medicine, from early rituals performed over corpses found dead to the controversial advent of modern forensic pathology. It explains how pathologists "read" bullet wounds and lacerations, how someone dies from a drug overdose or a motorcycle crash or a drowning, and how investigators uncover the clues that lead to the truth.

Synopsis: Designed primarily for the layperson, The Catholic Imagination is a journey through the liturgical year by way of weekly reflections on the life of the church. Through reading, thinking, and discussion, the religious imagination is stimulated and structured so the reader can reflect and act upon the richness of our faith to enter into a relationship with God. Reflections on the lives of the saints, their writings, their meaning for our times, the importance and value of creation and the natural world, the significance of the sacraments, sacramental devotions, and the timelessness of the gospel message encourage the reader to coordinate their actions with the weekly topic. Ideas on the church's artistic environment and related Scripture enhance the written materials. Special supplements are provided for Advent and Christmas, Lent and Easter, due to their importance in the life of the church. Just as we repeat the themes of the liturgical year over and over again, simple little lessons and readings like this go a long way in the continuing education of the lay Catholic with their straightforward message and inspirational writing style that capture the faith.

This is a reader's guide to Mann's classic novel that attempts to answer the most compelling question of the 20th century-how could millions of Jewish men, women and children have been murdered by the government of a country that prided itself as the civilized 'land of music,' the land of Bach, Mozart and Beethoven? Mann gives a new answer to this question-the land of music produced not only the freedom-based music of Bach, Mozart and Beethoven. It also produced twelve-tone row music, 'serial' music composed without freedom but with strict controls. This new and ultra-control German music arrived with the advent of the Nazis. Actually invented by the German Arnold Schoenberg, in the novel this radically new Gestapo music is invented by a fictional composer Adrian Leverkuhn. Mann believed that this kind of music contains the key to what happened politically in Germany starting at that same time. For him it is no accident that the first composition using the serial method was published in the same year Hitler became head of the National Socialist party. The key is that the music is composed with a rigid set of rules that must be slavishly followed for all aspects of music. The rules denied composer freedom. This kind of control music is discussed against the philosophical implications of the music of various composers such as Bach and Beethoven. Mann presents the view that Beethoven's late period music paved the way to Leverkuhn's serial music, to Gestapo music. Mann finds a demonic energy field at the heart of both serial music and of Nazism. Both triggered the rise of a demonic force by reason of blind and slavish obedience to rigid rules designed to establish control over too much, control over so much that freedom-denying methods were necessary to try to hold the result together. But Mann means something radically different by a demonic energy field. This is not your father's devil and this devil does not wear Prada. Mann's demonic is not a supernatural force. It is triggered by humans trying to control too much, even if the control is ostensibly designed for a good purpose. It happens when the end justifies the means. Does that sound familiar? As you will note, Mann's answer is relevant for events in Iraq in 2007. In the demonic energy field and like Doctor Faustus before him, Leverkuhn receives genius level energy but is rendered impotent of love, the demonic destroying the freedom that is the foundation for love. Genius-powered Leverkuhn produces serial 'music' of a dissonant, fragmented and irreconciled character, a mirror of his soul. In order to indicate that the same demonic process was at work on the national level in the case of the Nazis, Leverkuhn is given many of the personal characteristics of Hilter, including syphilis, and Leverkuhn's biography is told in brilliantly structured counterpoint against the last years of the Third Reich.
This book is written specifically to provide information and support for the homoeopathic home prescriber. It gives instant access to a wealth of information about commonly-used homoeopathic remedies, symptom pictures and a Materia Medica, and is a must-have accompaniment to your home remedy kit. Homoeopathic remedies have a long history of effective use for the self-treatment of everyday, simple ailments such as bumps and bruises, bites and stings, colds, coughs, tummy upsets, study and exam problems and many more. Homoeopathy is widely embraced in the United Kingdom, America, Europe and Asia, and to a lesser extent, Australia. In the late 1700's a German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann, discovered a different approach to the cure of the sick called Homoeopathy, which is an effective and scientific system of healing to assist the natural tendency of the body to heal itself. It recognises that symptoms of ill health are expressions of disharmony and that it is the patient who needs treatment not the disease.. A Homoeopathic medicine is understood to act by stimulating a healing response in the body by way of its similarity to the existing complaint. When choosing a remedy we note the important symptoms experienced by the person and select a remedy with a similar 'remedy picture'. A very small dose of that remedy is then administered to stimulate healing. The guidelines in this book are for the treatment of simple and minor complaints. In Homoeopathy emphasis is put on the individuals own unique experience of their symptoms. There is not simply one remedy for a particular illness, but rather one remedy, out of a whole group, which is carefully selected on the basis of each person's own variation of that illness. More than 15,000 Homoeopathy for the Home Prescriber hardcopy booklets have already been sold Australia-wide. The advent of this e-book puts the solution for a myriad of minor health and wellness issues at readers' fingertips, whenever and wherever they need it.
