He's fucking angry and tired of dealing with his poor excuse of a life and am doing his best to drown his sorrows in the bottom of a bottle. The pieces of his forgotten life are reappearing and they terrify him more than the uncertain future ahead... Bowen He's a lot of things, but what he's not, is a babysitter. He has his own shit to deal with, let alone take care of a guy who barely knows who he is. Gunnar is his brother's best friend, and Bowen's former lover. So when his brother asks for a favor, he can't say no. What he wasn't expecting was the feelings that started happening when Gunnar needed his help.

He's hoping Gunnar will let Bowen help him find himself again. Otherwise, Bowen's afraid he'll be lost forever.

Recent years have seen an explosion of research into the physiological and neural bases of social behavior. This state-of-the science handbook is unique in approaching the topic from a developmental perspective. Exploring the dynamic relationship between biology and social behavior from infancy through adolescence, leading investigators discuss key processes in typical and atypical development. Chapters address emotion, motivation, person perception, interpersonal relationships, developmental disorders, and psychopathology. The volume sheds light on how complex social abilities emerge from basic brain circuits, whether there are elements of social behavior that are 'hard wired' in the brain, and the impact of early experiences. Illustrations include 8 color plates.

Their journey takes them from tavern fights to dragon dens to sword fights in the king's arena. Along the way, they learn many truths, but none so important as this: even when today's battle is won, the war is far from over.

Warning: The first three chapters are boring. (When compared to the rest) But necessary, they set the scene. So shuffle through them. You will then find two stories that playfully intertwine and finally merge. Occasionally you will also be privy to short but spirited exchanges of opinion between the editor and the author as to the plausibility and the direction of the story. Often the lack thereof). A retired super computer "Olde Craig" with ambitions to become human soon enters the story expressing befuddlement at what goes for human intelligence yet finds human folly truly capitivating. Soon a character named "Olde Alfie" also shows up, a happily resurrected spirit of a begrudglingly demised psychiatrist, whose claim to fame was his scientific study into and discovery of why we laugh. Since this story at times unintentionally turns into the unexpected, which is one of the requirements to create hilarity, "Olde Alfie" makes himself right at home. In the end you will be a much happier you. So enjoy. The Author.

Designated a Doody's Core Title! Winner of an AJN Book of the Year Award! Who Has a Right to Health Care? What Is the Government's Role in Providing Accessible Health Care? How Are Corporations, Insurance Companies, and Health Care Providers Affecting the Quality of Health Care? And, Most Importantly, Can We Reform the U.S. Health Care System? We often debate these issues in health care policy or public health courses, yet we do so without the proper knowledge of the underlying structure of the U.S. health care system--or a framework by which it can be judged. Many health care workers entering the system are ill-equipped to address the issues faced in direct health care practice, in part because they have no ability to evaluate it. In this innovative text, Gunnar Almgren provides all the tools necessary to understand and critique a health care policy in dire need of change. First, he describes the historical evolution of U.S. health care, explaining how the early roles of hospitals, doctors, and nurses still influence today's system. He explains the complex financial aspects of health care, including the concerns of all its major stakeholders. He looks at the government's role in regulating and funding health care, and how that role has expanded and contracted through various political administrations. An entire chapter describes the facilities and services available for the elderly--an issue that will continue to rise in importance as America ages. Finally, he examines the many causes of disparities in the U.S. health care system. In addition, Almgren offers a unique social justice analysis as a framework by which the current system--and proposed reforms--can be judged. By analyzing the health care system through various models of social justice, we can begin to understand and address the urgent issues of economic, racial, and geographic disparities that plague our current system. With its clear, thorough, and comprehensive coverage of U.S. health care, this unique text is accessible to all those in public health, nursing, social work, public policy, or public administration. No other book addresses the underlying issues of the U.S. health care system alongside a variety of social justice models that we can use to evaluate, and perhaps eventually, change it.
