(This 'Neonatal Resuscitation' course was the result of the combined efforts of the Working Group on Pediatric Resuscitation and the National Task Force on Neonatal Resuscitation of the Section on Perinatal Pediatrics of AAP and its goal was to provide the materials and training necessary for health professionals in neonatal resuscitation according to AHA-AAP guidelines. At the time of printing, it was recorded in the United States that there was approximately 5,000 hospitals with delivery services in which about 3.7 million babies are born each years with resuscitation required for about 80% of the 30,000 babies with birth weights less than 1500 grams and for an unspecified additional number of those weighing more than1500 grams at birth. Every newborn has a right to a resuscitation performed at a high level of competence and the proper equipment must be immediately available in the delivery room. Also, health care professionals must be skilled in resuscitating and be capable of working smoothly as a team, so this is the reason why this textbook is made available. As you go through this program, you'll gain knowledge and skills in this vital area. Lesson 1: Introduction to the Program. Lesson 2: Initial Steps in Resuscitation Thermal Management, Positioning, Suctioning, and Tactile Stimulation. Lesson 3: Use of a Resuscitation Bag and Mask. Lesson 4: Chest Compressions. Lesson 5: Endotracheal Intubation. Lesson 6: Medications.)

7 Easy Gourmet Dishes, The Amy Vanderbilt Success Program for Women
Adams, Charlotte Garden City, New York Nelson Doubleday Inc. 1966 Soft cover Very Good Book 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Frank Lacano 
; Stapled wraps, 72 pages; Color photographs and illustrations; Introduction by Amy Vanderbilt; Pages are tight with no internal markings save for four tiny marks inside front cover and light (small) mark to head of textblock; All Pages are securely attached; Bright pictorial cover with no tears and modest shelf and edge wear including tiny amount of light rubbing and three marks; A nice solid copy; . (How does one delight the gourmet taste, which is to say one whose products delight the gourmet taste? First is to judge whether a recipe is accurate or not, and of course after you master a dish you can begin to add your own touches. Keep in mind that if you never experiment, or use your own imagination you'll miss a lot of the creative joy which cooking brings. Having said that, another absolute must for gourmet cooks is to achieve judgment and knowledge of what foods go well with other foods, for instance if your entree is one with a gloriously rich sauce, you will perhaps start the meal with a clear soup and end it with fruit. And if you wish to serve a rich dessert, you will work back to the roast or broiled meat, with perhaps a salad for the first course. This book brings you a tiny sampling of the infinite variety available for recipes, and this will eventually lead you to the greatest pleasure of all, inventing your own dishes and variations on the inventions of others. Listed contents are: Appetizers, Soups, Fish and Seafood, Poultry, Meat, Vegetables, Salads, Sauces and Dressings, Breads, and Desserts. Besides the high-quality recipes included, you'll also enjoy the menu selections at the back which are: Luncheon Menus: Deviled Crab, Cucumber-Grapefruit Aspic, Baking Powder Biscuits, Honeydew Melon Demitasse; Asparagus a la Milanese, Peas with Tiny Onions, Hot Corn Muffins, Fresh Summer Fruit Salad, Fresh Orange Fruit Salad Dressing, Demitasse; Croque Monsieur, Chilian Salad, Grasshopper Pie, Demitasse; Chinese Cold Beef, Roquefort Cheese Ring, Norwegian Flat Bread, Fresh Strawberries on Stems with Powdered Sugar, Demitasse; And some of the dinner Menus are: Pate de Volaille, Toast Points, Filet of Sole Veronique, Dry White Wine, Buttered Green Peas, Crisp French Fried Potatoes, Fresh Blueberries and Lemon Ice, Demitasse; Consomme Bellevue, Supreme de Volaille Periguex, Rose Wine, Braised Endive, Buttered Green Noodles, Hard Rolls, Fresh Fruits with Kirsch, Demitasse; Cold Artichokes Vinaigrette, Duck a l'Orange, Dry Red Wine, Wild Rice, Frenched Green Beans, Pears with Bel Paese Cheese, Demitasse; Onion Tart, Cold Curried Chicken, Beer, Major Grey's Chutney, Cold Asparagus Vinaigrette, Hot French Bread, Rice Cake with Candied Fruits, Demitasse; Cold Creme Senegalese, Portuguese Pork with Clams, Rose Wine, Buttered Broccoli, Hot Arabic Bread, Pot de Creme, Demitasse and more.

20 The Breakup of the Soviet Union: Opposing Viewpoints
Barbour, William U.S.A. Greenhaven Pr 1994 1565100670 / 9781565100671 Soft cover Very Good Ex-Library 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall

(The editors of this series quote Thomas Jefferson as saying "difference of opinion leads to inquiry, and inquiry to truth". The editors believe that these books will give readers a deeper understanding of the issues debated and an appreciation of the complexity of even seemingly simple issues when good and honest people disagree. With the breakup of the Soviet Union, the all-pervasive ideology that prescribed and controlled every sphere of Soviet life for over seventy years was swept away. The leaders of most of the republics, supported by the majority of their citizens, say they are committed to Western-style governments and economies. And of course, reform is spoken about. While the majority of Russians support reforms, most have found that capitalism is less attractive than they had been led to believe. Furthermore, the end of communism has meant the end of social benefits, such as free health care, education and transportation. The viewpoints here examine the forces and events that led to the collapse of the Soviet Union and the consequences of the empire's disintegration, providing valuable insight into the region's policies, recent history, and relationship with the West.)
