    Le sacrifice de la maternité, le parasitisme de l'enfance, mais aussi le mystère de l'amour filial, sont au coeur de ce texte coup de poing.

  • Luke Skywalker et Wedge Antilles se laissent capturer par l'Empire afin de découvrir comment le Colonel Bircher traque leurs actions. Dark Vador envoie lui aussi un de ses sbires pour espionner ses propres troupes, pendant que Han Solo et Chewbacca doivent faire face à Boba Fett !
    La Princesse Leia est, quant à elle, seule pour se recueillir au coeur des ruines de son monde d'origine, Alderaan.

  • L'honneur des Westerling.


    Mariage chez les Westerling.
    Katy Westerling le sait : Jago Rodriguez est le seul homme à connaître la femme ardente et passionnée qu'elle est vraiment - bien loin de l'aristocrate froide qu'elle s'évertue à incarner. Et, pour lui, elle serait prête à quitter son fiancé, un lord anglais qu'elle a accepté d'épouser par devoir. Encore faudrait-il que Jago exprime enfin les sentiments qu'elle rêve de l'entendre confesser...



    Un scandaleux séducteur.

    Libby Westerling est folle de rage lorsque, au cours d'un gala de charité, Andreas Christakos offre publiquement de donner une fortune en échange d'un dîner en sa compagnie. Si Andreas n'avait pas été son patron - et si cette cause ne lui avait pas tant tenu à coeur, Libby l'aurait envoyé paître. À la place, elle va devoir satisfaire les caprices de ce play-boy...

    Un bébé par surprise.
    Lorsque Jenny annonce au richissime Alex Westerling qu'il est le père de Daisy, sa petite nièce dont elle a la charge, elle sait qu'elle va passer pour une intrigante doublée d'une opportuniste. Mais, par amour pour l'enfant, Jenny est déterminée à ne pas se laisser intimider. Fût-ce par un homme aussi puissant et redoutable qu'Alex.

  • Can certain foods hijack the brain in ways similar to drugs and alcohol, and is this effect sufficiently strong to contribute to major diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, and hence constitute a public health menace? Terms like "chocoholic" and "food addict" are part of popular lore, some popular diet books discuss the concept of addiction, and there are food addiction programs with names like Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous. Clinicians who work with patients often hear the language of addiction when individuals speak of irresistible cravings, withdrawal symptoms when starting a diet, and increasing intake of palatable foods over time. But what does science show, and how strong is the evidence that food and addiction is a real and important phenomenon?
    Food and Addiction: A Comprehensive Handbook brings scientific order to the issue of food and addiction, spanning multiple disciplines to create the foundation for what is a rapidly advancing field and to highlight needed advances in science and public policy. The book assembles leading scientists and policy makers from fields such as nutrition, addiction, psychology, epidemiology, and public health to explore and analyze the scientific evidence for the addictive properties of food. It provides complete and comprehensive coverage of all subjects pertinent to food and addiction, from basic background information on topics such as food intake, metabolism, and environmental risk factors for obesity, to diagnostic criteria for food addiction, the evolutionary and developmental bases of eating addictions, and behavioral and pharmacologic interventions, to the clinical, public health, and legal and policy implications of recognizing the validity of food addiction. Each chapter reviews the available science and notes needed scientific advances in the field.

  • Ideal for shoulder surgeons who want to upgrade their skills to the next level, this practical, step-by-step text presents the latest cutting-edge management strategies and science aimed at shoulder preservation surgery. Highlighting four main areas - the overhead athlete, shoulder instability, glenohumeral arthritis, and the rotator cuff - these innovative techniques focus on the maintenance of the native shoulder joint. Chapters open with an introduction to the clinical problem, followed by misgivings related to open surgery or arthroplasty as treatment strategies. A rationale for the arthroscopic treatment is then presented, along with an in-depth description of the technique itself as well as preliminary results. Techniques presented include posterior capsule release for the overhead athlete, arthroscopic Latarjet for instability, the CAM procedure for glenohumeral arthritis, biological augmentation for rotator cuff repair. A fifth section covers post-operative care and return-to-play considerations. With contributions from many of the top thinkers and surgeons of the shoulder, Elite Techniques in Shoulder Arthroscopy brings these exciting new management strategies to the fore with the aim of elevating them to more common practice for orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine specialists.

  • This book provides a comprehensive overview of fluency as a construct and its assessment in the context of curriculum-based measurement (CBM). Comparing perspectives from language acquisition, reading, and mathematics, the book parses the vagueness and complexities surrounding fluency concepts and their resulting impact on testing, intervention, and students' educational development. Applications of this knowledge in screening and testing, ideas for creating more targeted measures, and advanced methods for studying fluency data demonstrate the overall salience of fluency within CBM. Throughout, contributors argue for greater specificity and nuance in isolating skills to be measured and improved, and for terminology that reflects those educational benchmarks.Included in the coverage:Indicators of fluent writing in beginning writers.Fluency in language acquisition, reading, and mathematics. Foundations of fluency-based assessments in behavioral and psychometric paradigms.Using response time and accuracy data to inform the measurement of fluency.Using individual growth curves to model reading fluency.Latent class analysis for reading fluency research. The Fluency Construct: Curriculum-Based Measurement Concepts and Applications is an essential resource for researchers, graduate students, and professionals in clinical child and school psychology, language and literature, applied linguistics, special education, neuropsychology, and social work.

  • Meniscal Injuries

    Iv John D. Kelly

    • Springer
    • 20 September 2013

    Thoroughly discussing the varied elements of meniscal damage and repair, Meniscal Injuries: Management and Surgical Techniques includes the insights and expertise of over 20 leading surgeons and researchers on topics ranging from meniscal anatomy, physical examination, innovative resection and repair techniques, gene therapy, and tissue regeneration. This treatise offers wisdom aimed at assessing true surgical candidates, exploring the intricacies of meniscal composition and function, an overview of meniscal scaffolds and replacements, and patient examination pearls. Also discussed in depth is cutting edge research concerning meniscal repair enhancement, nanofiber technology as a means of meniscal replacement, and biologic agents directed toward chondral protection. All the science presented will direct the sports medicine practitioner to state-of-the-art treatment aimed at knee preservation. Meniscal repair and regeneration is a rapidly evolving science - early attempts at meniscal restoration or repair resulted in short-term gains which often sacrificed long-term joint integrity. Now, the practitioner is afforded numerous means of retaining or restoring meniscal tissue. Breakthroughs in scaffold and allograft replacement, as featured herein, offer the promise of articular cartilage preservation like never before. In addition, tissue regeneration and gene therapy techniques, featured throughout, offer a glimpse into emerging technologies aimed at preserving or replacing meniscal tissue in previously considered "hopeless" cases. As such, Meniscal Injuries will be an indispensible resource to orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine practitioners interested in providing the absolute most contemporary and evidence-based care to their patients.
