The Radiology Department is a pivotal part of any acute and/or comprehensive health care facility. The radiologist can no longer just "hide out" there. Matters of imaging are often public concerns, larger in scope than just the scheduling and managing of a series of image tests. Rather radiology is expensive, often intrusive and in some areas earnestly and endlessly controversial. A radiologist must be attuned to these often confounding contingencies. Two recent developments in the monitoring of education of radiologists can be impacted by the content of this book. For trainees in Radiology, and for that matter, for all trainees in every medical specialty in the U.S., a new accreditation system (NAS) has been put into place under the impetus and aegis of the ACGME, the Accreditation Committee for Graduate Medical Education, the body responsible for graduate medical evaluation and oversight in the U.S. Among its many innovations, the NAS curriculum is concerned with knowledge acquired about social and economic issues pertinent to each specialty. It is also focused on improving communication skills and about enhancing quality and safety. In the elaboration of "milestones" for residency education in these issues are codified into focused initiatives that must be addressed by each trainee as he or she advances in capability and seniority within the training interval.
The greatest fear of the Christian parent is that his or her children are not walking in the truth and, consequently, will unwillingly self-inflict much pain and sorrow on themselves becoming trapped by the pitfalls of life.
Your journey in life will be determined by the choices in your youth. Basing those choices on truth, rather than on perception, determines the quality of that journey, as well as choosing the final destination.
There is no reset button in life. Avoiding the pitfalls of life takes wisdom-wisdom not of this world. The key to avoiding, and worse yet, causing a disaster in your life is to develop a keen eye for any signs of trouble.
Watch Your Step! Barefoot in a Broken-Glass World helps the reader identify and avoid the pitfalls as identified by Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived. He had profound insights into the fallen nature of man. Solomon's intent for the book of Proverbs was teaching young people the tactical skill of biblical wisdom.
The purpose for Proverbs is to equip us with divine wisdom. Possessing this wisdom will bring the most success in this life, and minimize the negative effects of living in a fallen world. Watch your step-you never know from one moment to the next what challenges in your life await you. After all, we are all born barefoot in a broken-glass world.
Pulitzer Prize--winning poet Richard Wilbur (b. 1921) is part of a notable literary cohort, American poets who came to prominence in the mid-twentieth century. Wilbur's verse is esteemed for its fluency, wit, and optimism; his ingeniously rhymed translations of French drama by Moliere, Racine, and Corneille remain the most often staged in the English-speaking world; his essays possess a scope and acumen equal to the era's best criticism. This biography examines the philosophical and visionary depth of his world-renowned poetry and traces achievements spanning seventy years, from political editorials about World War II to war poems written during his service to his theatrical career, including a contentious collaboration with Leonard Bernstein and Lillian Hellman.
Wilbur's life has been mistakenly seen as blessed, lacking the drama of his troubled contemporaries. Let Us Watch Richard Wilbur corrects that view and explores how Wilbur's perceived "normality" both enhanced and limited his achievement. The authors augment the life story with details gleaned from access to his unpublished journals, family archives, candid interviews they conducted with Wilbur and his wife, Charlee, and his correspondence with Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Bishop, John Berryman, John Malcolm Brinnin, James Merrill, and others.
Based on 25 years of community development practice, six of which have been lived in South Africa, Peter Westoby's ground-breaking monograph moves away from dominant normative accounts of community development to provide an appreciative and critical analysis of concrete examples of community development theory and practice. By examining community development stories as experienced on the ground, Westoby is able to show how the poor are organising themselves using various forms of community development as well as demonstrating how the state and non-state actors are attempting to organise, engage or accompany the poor through community development. The book also breaks new ground in theorising the practice of community development, drawing inductively from the stories analysed. The diversity of South African contexts and the proliferation of different kinds of community practice, make this a hugely difficult task. Despite this, Westoby argues it is one worth undertaking given the seriousness of the challenges facing the poor and progressive social change agents within South Africa. In this undertaking, Westoby draws upon a unique analytical framework to help illuminate current community development policy and programme challenges, along with practice dilemmas and wisdom.
