            In the modern era, over just a handful of generations, human societies have altered almost beyond recognition. Other species adapt to their environments; we alone create ours. Our ability to do so has not only liberated much of the planet from plague and famine, but also reshaped... the human phenotype - the interaction between genes and environment that moulds our bodies and minds. Weaving together biology, social anthropology, epidemiology and history, Edwin Gale argues that we are the only species to have domesticated itself. But at what cost? Gale offers a timely and fascinating reminder that we are products of the world we have made.

            Australia's favourite science communicator explains the facts about climate change - and how we can fix it Is the planet reeeeeally warming up? But carbon's natural, isn't it? How could planes fly without fossil fuels? What's a pteropod and why should I care? Kelp? How can it hel...p? One of Dr Karl Kruszelnicki's jobs as Australia's most popular science communicator is to answer people's questions about climate change. Now, in this never dull, easy-to-understand guide Dr Karl explains the science of climate change and how we can fix it (we can!). So when your uncle says (again) that it's a load of hooey (or an illuminati conspiracy), you can keep your cool and talk like a boss about why it's getting hotter and what we can do about it.

            Public Speaking for Criminal Justice Professionals: A Manner of Speaking is a one-of-a-kind public speaking guide specifically written for criminal justice professionals, written by a criminal justice professional. Author Thomas Mauriello has worked his entire professional career... both as a practitioner and as an educator in the fields of criminal justice and forensic science. This book outlines the public speaking skills he has learned, used, and taught to thousands of criminal justice, forensic science, security, and counterintelligence professionals over the years. The book can either be read from cover-to-cover-to fine tune the reader's existing oral communication skills-or read in a modular, as a reference guide to focus on certain skills and techniques. A list of over 55 proven, effective presentation tools will be listed, discussed, and demonstrated throughout the book-using illustrated criminal justice and forensic sciences topic examples. Contrary to popular believe, simply knowing your subject or being an expert in the subject does not guarantee a successful presentation. Aristotle, who many recognize as the Father of Public Speaking and Forensic Debate, said it best when he declared, It is not enough to know what to say, one must know how to say it. This guide focuses on technique and the recognition that a speaker must have of both the subject and the listener. The purpose is to improve readers' skill level and ability to engage and, thereby, inform the listener. Whether preparing to speak to one person, or one thousand people, Public Speaking for Criminal Justice Professionals provides specific techniques for professionals to speaking with confidence, and present effective engaging presentations.

            Topical bimatoprost is used to treat hypotrichosis (less than the normal amount of hair) of the eyelashes by promoting the growth of longer, thicker, and darker lashes. Topical bimatoprost is in a class of medications called prostaglandin analogs. It works by increasing the numbe...r of eyelash hairs that grow and the amount of time that they grow. opical bimatoprost comes as a solution (liquid) to apply to the upper eyelids. It is usually applied once a day in the evening. Use topical bimatoprost at around the same time every day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Use topical bimatoprost exactly as directed. Do not use more or less of it or use it more often than prescribed by your doctor. Using topical bimatoprost more often than once a day will not increase eyelash growth more than the recommended use.

            Earth Matters tells the story of how American theatre has shaped popular understandings of the environment throughout the 20th century as it argues for theatre's potential power in the age of climate change. Using cultural and environmental history, seven chapters illuminate key ...moments in American theatre and American environmentalism over the course of the 20th century in the US. Earth Matters focuses in particular on how drama has represented environmental injustice, and how inequality has become part of the American environmental landscape. As the first book-length ecocritical study of American theatre, Earth Matters examines both familiar dramas, but also lesser-known grassroots plays, in an effort to show that theatre can be a powerful force for social change From frontier drama of the late nineteenth century to the eco-theatre movement, Earth Matters argues that theatre has been part of the history of environmental ideas and action in the U.S. Earth Matters also maps the rise of an ecocritical thought and ecotheatre practice-what the author calls ecodramaturgy -showing how theatre has informed environmental perceptions and policies. Through key plays and productions, it identifies strategies for artists who want their work to contribute to cultural transformation in the face of climate change.

            QT interval is estimated from the beginning of Q wave to the end of T wave on ECG. This can be explained due to the shortening or lengthening of the ventricular repolarization. The study has performed to assess QT interval prolongation due to drugs and drug-drug interactions resu...lting QT interval prolongation. This study reveals some of the specific drugs causing QT interval prolongation. The study also reveals that QT interval prolongation occurs in almost all therapeutic classes of drugs (like tricyclic antidepressants, anti-emetics, prokinetic agents, antifungals, cardiovascular drugs etc) among which cardiac drugs were majorly causing the prolongation. This research work founded five major causes that lead to QT interval prolongation. The study also discusses about risk factors which are considered as a causative factor to prolong QT interval.

A total number of 65 Ivabradine administered cases in Acute Myocardial Infarction are enrolled in the study. The data of patients were categorized according to age groups, gender, diagnosis, comorbidities and adverse effects. The study concludes that Ivabradine is a drug that reduces heart rate by inhibiting the cardiac If channels.
