In Mile Markers, Runner's World contributing editor Kristin Armstrong captures the ineffable and timeless beauty of running, the importance of nurturing relationships with those we love, and the significance of reflecting on our experiences. This collection considers the most important reasons women run, celebrating the inspiring passion runners have for their sport and illustrating how running fosters a vitally powerful community. With unique wit, refreshing candor, and disarming vulnerability, Armstrong shares her conviction that running is the perfect parallel for marking the milestones of life. From describing running a hardfought race with her tightly-knit group of sweat sisters, to watching her children participate in the sport for the very first time, Armstrong infuses her experiences with a perspective of hope that every moment is a chance to become a stronger, wiser, more peaceful woman. Running threads these touching stories together, and through each of them we are shown the universal undercurrents of inspiration, growth, grace, family, empowerment, and endurance.

Yellowstone National Park is the focal point of Wyoming tourism; however, there is so much more if you know where to look. From rolling prairie, to badlands, to deep forests, to high mountain lakes, and breathtaking peaks, Wyoming's diverse landscape is second to none. In addition, the Wyoming plains contain a rich history of pioneer trails that served as the gateway to the west throughout the 19th century. Most Wyoming travel guides are written to explain tourist attractions in detail once you are already there and require much time and effort to plot a course across the state. This remarkable guide, on the other hand, has the entire state laid out by the highway mile markers so you will always know what is ahead and exactly how to get there. The book is laid out in a clear and concise report style format with brief descriptions, condensed information and a star rating system that allows you to easily make informed decisions about what to visit. Detailed directions, GPS coordinates and elevations are provided for 1900 entries, including: nearly 600 natural, scenic and historic attractions; nearly 100 easily accessible hiking trails; over 300 public campgrounds and dispersed camping areas; over 30 rest areas; and over 60 RV dump stations. It makes an excellent companion book to any other Wyoming travel book and pays for itself many times over in time and fuel savings. NOTES: Due to the extensive amount of information contained in the book, it is not a pocket guide but instead measure 8.3 x 11.7 x 0.5 inches. There are no photos, but dozens of color photos can be seen on the book website. Complete coverage of Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, Devils Tower National Monument, Fossil Butte National Monument, Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, Fort Laramie National Historic Site, Medicine Lodge State Archaeological Site, Snowy Range, Bighorn Mountains, Wind River Mountains, Sinks Canyon State Park, Guernsey State Park, Glendo State Park, Keyhole State Park, Green River Lakes, Casper Mountain Park, Jackson Hole and much more.

In the 90 years since the first edition of the Cecil Textbook of Medicine was published, almost everything we know about internal medicine has changed. Progress in medical science is now occurring at an ever-accelerating pace, and it is doing so within the framework of transformational changes in clinical practice and the delivery of health care at individual, social, and global levels. This textbook and its associated electronic products incorporate the latest medical knowledge in multiple formats that should appeal to students and seasoned practitioners regardless of how they prefer to access this rapidly changing information. Even as Cecil’s specific information has changed, however, we have remained true to the tradition of a comprehensive textbook of medicine that carefully explains the why (the underlying pathophysiology of disease) and the how (now expected to be evidence-based from randomized controlled trials and meta-analyses). Descriptions of physiology and pathophysiology include the latest genetic advances in a practical format that strives to be useful to the nonexpert. Medicine has entered an era when the acuity of illness and the limited time available to evaluate a patient have diminished the ability of physicians to satisfy their intellectual curiosity. As a result, the acquisition of information, quite easily achieved in this era, is often confused with knowledge. We have attempted to address this dilemma with a textbook that not only informs but also stimulates new questions and gives a glimpse of the future path to new knowledge. Grade A evidence is specifically highlighted in the text and referenced at the end of each chapter. In addition to the information provided in the textbook, the Cecil website supplies expanded content and functionality. In many cases, the full articles referenced in each chapter can be accessed from the Cecil website. The website is also continuously updated to incorporate subsequent Grade A information, other evidence, and new discoveries. The sections for each organ system begin with a chapter that summarizes an approach to patients with key symptoms, signs, or laboratory abnormalities associated with dysfunction of that organ system. As summarized in E-Table 1-1, the text specifically provides clear, concise information regarding how a physician should approach more than 100 common symptoms, signs, and laboratory abnormalities, usually with a flow diagram, a table, or both for easy reference. In this way, Cecil remains a comprehensive text to guide diagnosis and therapy, not only for patients with suspected or known diseases but also for patients who may have undiagnosed abnormalities that require an initial evaluation. Just as each edition brings new authors, it also reminds us of our gratitude to past editors and authors. Previous editors of Cecil include a short but remarkably distinguished group of leaders of American medicine: Russell Cecil, Paul Beeson, Walsh McDermott, James Wyngaarden, Lloyd H. Smith, Jr., Fred Plum, J. Claude Bennett, and Dennis Ausiello. As we welcome new associate editors&Mary K. Crow, James H. Doroshow, and Allen M. Spiegel&we also express our appreciation to William P. Arend, James O. Armitage, David R. Clemmons, and other associate editors from the previous editions on whose foundation we have built. Our returning associate editors&Jeffrey M. Drazen, Robert C. Griggs, Donald W. Landry, Wendy Levinson, Anil K. Rustgi, and W. Michael Scheld&continue to make critical contributions to the selection of authors and the review and approval of all manuscripts. The editors, however, are fully responsible for the book as well as the integration among chapters. The tradition of Cecil is that all chapters are written by distinguished experts in each field. We are also most grateful for the editorial assistance in New York of Maribel Lim and Silva Sergenian. These individuals and others in our offices have shown extraordinary dedication and equanimity in working with authors and editors to manage the unending flow of manuscripts, figures, and permissions. We also thank Cassondra Andreychik, Ved Bhushan Arya, Cameron Harrison, Karen Krok, Robert J. Mentz, Gaétane Nocturne, Patrice Savard, Senthil Senniappan, Tejpratap Tiwari, and Sangeetha Venkatarajan, who contributed to various chapters, and we mourn the passing of Morton N. Swartz, MD, co-author of the chapter on “Meningitis: Bacterial, Viral, and Other” and Donald E. Low, MD, author of the chapter “Nonpneumococcal Streptococcal Infections, Rheumatic Fever.” At Elsevier, we are most indebted to Kate Dimock and Maureen Iannuzzi, and also thank Maria Holman, Gabriela Benner, Cindy Thoms, Anne Altepeter, Linda McKinley, Paula Catalano, and Kristin Koehler, who have been critical to the planning and production process under the guidance of Mary Gatsch. Many of the clinical photographs were supplied by Charles D. Forbes and William F. Jackson, authors of Color Atlas and Text of Clinical Medicine, Third Edition, published in 2003 by Elsevier Science Ltd. We thank them for graciously permitting us to include their pictures in our book. We have been exposed to remarkable physicians in our lifetimes and would like to acknowledge the mentorship and support of several of those who exemplify this paradigm& Eugene Braunwald, Lloyd H. Smith, Jr., Frank Gardner, and William Castle. Finally, we would like to thank the Goldman family&Jill, Jeff, Abigail, Mira, Samuel, Daniel, Robyn, Tobin, and Dashel&and the Schafer family& Pauline, Eric, Melissa, Nathaniel, Pam, John, Evan, Samantha, Kate, and Sean, for their understanding of the time and focus required to edit a book that attempts to sustain the tradition of our predecessors and to meet the needs of today’s physician.

Essays of George Eliot

PREFACE. Since the death of George Eliot much public curiosity has been excited by the repeated allusions to, and quotations from, her contributions to periodical literature, and a leading newspaper gives expression to a general wish when it says that “this series of striking essays ought to be collected and reprinted, both because of substantive worth and because of the light they throw on the author’s literary canons and predilections.” In fact, the articles which were published anonymously in The Westminster Review have been so pointedly designated by the editor, and the biographical sketch in the “Famous Women” series is so emphatic in its praise of them, and so copious in its extracts from one and the least important one of them, that the publication of all the Review and magazine articles of the renowned novelist, without abridgment or alteration, would seem but an act of fair play to her fame, while at the same time a compliance with a reasonable public demand. Nor are these first steps in her wonderful intellectual progress any the less, but are all the more noteworthy, for being first steps. “To ignore this stage,” says the author of the valuable little volume to which we have just referred—“to ignore this stage in George Eliot’s mental development would be to lose one of the connecting links in her history.” Furthermore,“nothing in her fictions excels the style of these papers.” Here is all her“epigrammatic felicity,” and an irony not surpassed by Heine himself, while her paper on the poet Young is one of her wittiest bits of critical analysis. Her translation of Status’s “Life of Jesus” was published in 1840, and her translation of Feuerbach’s “Essence of Christianity” in 1854. Her translation of Spinoza’s “Ethics” was finished the same year, but remains unpublished. She was associate editor of The Westminster Reviewfrom 1851 to 1853. She was about twenty-seven years of age when her first translation appeared, thirty-three when the first of these magazine articles appeared, thirty-eight at the publication of her first story, and fifty-nine when she finished “Theophrastus Such.” Two years after she died, at the age of sixty-one. So that George Eliot’s literary life covered a period of about thirty-two years.
