The book “Foods for Special Dietary Regimens“ covers a diverse range of patient groups that have special nutritional requirements including the elderly, athletes, vegetarians, diabetics and phenylketon urics to name a few. Diets for individuals affected by specific diseases such as celiac disease, autism, dyslipidemia, and COVID-19 are also recommended.
The Abu Serga Church is one of the oldest known Coptic churches in Egypt, with a history of almost 1700 years. This reference work presents a comprehensive geotechnical and geophysical survey of the vicinity of the Abu Serga Church. The book details the information of the survey using classical and modern methods of geotechnical engineering while keeping contemporary issues faced by site investigators in view. Chapters provide the data of the church site while covering topics of interest to students such as seismic analysis, 3-D modeling and historical preservation principles. Advanced methods of interest to engineers such as mathematical analysis using finite element methods are also covered.
Balance in Healthcare is an easy to understand guide to maintaining a balanced medium of activities for healthy living. The book points out key aspects of balance in living a healthy life, and gives information on toxic lifestyle elements that can cause imbalance. These aspects include lifestyle, diet, family relationships, spirituality, the immune system, the endocannabinoid system, the antioxidant system and the concept of energy balance in the human body. The contents are expressed in a simple way, while delving into the relevant scientific explanations and also place an emphasis on the positive aspects of relationships and spirituality. Balance in Healthcare therefore, serves as a simple detoxification reference to readers from all walks of life, enabling anyone to understand and relearn the traditional concept of balance from a scientific angle so that they can achieve their highest potential when making choices for their mental and physical well-being.
Bentham Briefs in Biomedicine and Pharmacotherapy brings new trends and techniques in pharmacology and medical biochemistry to the forefront through unique volumes. The first volume, Oxidative Stress and Natural Antioxidants, is a compilation of articles about free radicals (which are extremely reactive, short-lived molecules with unpaired electron valency), and antioxidants (which are stabilizing agents of free radicals in the body).
The cutting edge of wearable systems for quantifying movement disorders with treatment through deep brain stimulation is presented in Dr. Robert LeMoyne and Timothy Mastroianni’s latest monograph, in conjunction with applied software development using Python for consolidating signal data for subsequent machine learning applications.
MIT political scientist Lily Tsai is author of a new book, “When People Want Punishment,” arguing that “retributive justice,” in the form of high-profile punishments, are an effective way for authoritarian governments to maintain public support.
Data is now central to the economy, government, and health systems—so why are data and the AI systems that interpret the data in the hands of so few people?
Denial of climate science emerged simultaneously with key scientific discoveries about humanity's impact on our planet, according to a new book.
Since time immemorial, men have assumed superior innate qualities justified their exerting power over the other sex right up to the twentieth century. The last few years have seen the emergence of new literature to show that despite this, women have managed to become outstanding in their fields of expertise. But none discuss a fundamental question: is the supposed male superiority biological, or has it arisen for some other reason over the course of time?
This book builds a systemic view of deep learning-based non-invasive Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) systems: starting with the foundations of BCI systems and deep learning algorithms, to the overview of the state-of-the-art deep learning models addressing BCI challenges, detailed typical deep learning algorithms for brain signal analysis, as well as the advanced BCI applications including person authentication, visual reconstruction, language interpretation, assistive living, and neurological disorder diagnosis.
The book “Democracy Lives in Darkness: How and Why People Keep Their Politics a Secret” (Oxford University Press) was written by Emily Van Duyn, a professor of communication at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
