A gripping novel about the kind of love that never lets go and the heart's capacity to remember, from the New York Times best-selling author of Blackberry Winter and The Violets of March. Enjoying a romantic candlelit dinner with her fiancé, Ryan, at one of Seattle's chicest restaurants, Kailey Crain can't believe her good fortune: She has a great job as a journalist and is now engaged to a guy who is perfect in nearly every way. As she and Ryan leave the restaurant, Kailey spies a thin, bearded homeless man on the sidewalk. She approaches him to offer up her bag of leftovers and is stunned when their eyes meet, then stricken to her very core: The man is the love of her life, Cade McAllister. When Kailey met Cade 10 years ago, their attraction was immediate and intense - everything connected and felt right. But it all ended suddenly, leaving Kailey devastated. Now the poor soul on the street is a faded version of her former beloved: His weathered and weary face is as handsome as Kailey remembers, but his mind has suffered in the intervening years. Over the next few weeks, Kailey helps Cade begin to piece his life together, something she initially keeps from Ryan. As she revisits her long-ago relationship, Kailey realizes that she must decide exactly what - and whom - she wants. Alternating between the past and the present, Always is a beautifully unfolding exploration of a woman faced with an impossible choice, a woman who discovers what she's willing to save and what she will sacrifice for true love. 1.

Iron bioavailability from sorghum and millet foods
79,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Iron deficiency without or with anaemia is a major global health problem primarily affecting vulnerable population groups such as children 5 years of age and women of reproductive age. In the semi-arid tropics, the aetiology of iron deficiency is multifactorial, but the major factors are low dietary iron intake and bioavailability from monotonous diets based on staple crops, such as sorghum and millets, exacerbated by chronic infections, such as malaria. Sorghum and millets are main staple foods for many poverty-stricken people living in the semi-arid tropics. The overall aim of the present work was to develop approaches to improve iron nutrition from sorghum and millet based diets in malaria endemic areas. This included an evaluation of the effect of asymptomatic malaria on iron absorption, an investigation of the effect of sorghum polyphenols on iron absorption and the optimization of iron bioavailability from a complementary food fortificant added to thin millet gruel. Moreover, iron bioavailability and total iron absorbed from iron-biofortified pearl millet was compared with that from regular-iron and post-harvest iron-fortified millet.

Bob Wallace is a good man who has just endured a horrifying event. A short time after his daughter died, Bob heads to a local coffee shop to sort out his thoughts. When a stranger approaches his table and asks to join him, Bob has no idea of the man's motive. As Bob reluctantly listens, the man explains he is seeking out the grief-stricken. His employer has the capability to go back in time and erase people, not just their memory, in order to ease the pain of loss. All he has to do is agree and then the man will disappear, along with any indication that Bob's daughter ever existed. When Bob refuses, he believes he will never see the man again. But five months later when the man reappears, the torment begins. Barney, who appears to be a likeable fellow, takes Bob on a mind-boggling tour through religion, politics, and morality. But what Bob does not know is that there is more to Barney than he realizes. Barney's employer is an enigma. He/she has two manifestations: one is beautiful and deadly; the other is suave and charming. Both are evil. Barney is the tale of a grief-stricken middle-aged father's life-altering experiences after he encounters a charming stranger with a plan.

Drought in Brazil
143,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Drought is a slow-onset natural hazard that is often referred to as a creeping phenomenon. The challenge of monitoring drought's onset and evolution, and identifying its termination or end is one that scientists, natural resource managers, and decision makers have been struggling with for decades. However, drought management must be aimed at reducing the risks of future drought events on economies, the environment, and the social fabric of regions. As with many countries, droughts are often managed as a crisis in Brazil, rather than events for which officials and communities proactively prepare. Although droughts are not new to Brazil, the recent spate of droughts in the poverty stricken semi-arid Northeast and the industrial hub of São Paulo in the Southeast has forced the country to think more seriously about finally changing its drought policies and management approaches. The book is told through the perspectives of the ministers and secretaries, state policy and technical officials, civil society organizations, and development practitioners that helped to facilitate the shift in paradigm in Brazil from crisis management and towards proactive management of droughts. It is written in a style that is appealing to both technical and non-technical audiences, and aims to provide a framework and lessons for other countries to consider when embarking upon similar efforts to improve their own drought policy and management systems.

The health, development, and learning of many young children living in disadvantage areas are at serious risk. Access to education has improved under the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, and there are now programs in low- and middle-income countries that are aimed at improving instruction and learning. The research and evaluation on the effectiveness of such programs show there are significant challenges, but also some successes. This issue features presentations of leading international scientists, representatives from key governmental and non-governmental organizations, and others working with programs in the developing world and disadvantaged populations. The presentations describe the goals, existing challenges, and potential approaches to providing evidence-based programs to young children in rural, remote, and poverty stricken areas. Topics covered include: the state of early childhood in low and middle income nations, programs that have shown some success, and innovative research approaches that have been often considered unfeasible in these contexts. This is the 158th volume in this Jossey-Bass series New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development. Its mission is to provide scientific and scholarly presentations on cutting edge issues and concepts in this subject area. Each volume focuses on a specific new direction or research topic and is edited by experts from that field.
