Facing the loss of a loved one in a death-avoidant culture can be excruciating. Grievers may be expected to put on a brave face, to "move on" quickly, and to seek medication if they are still grief-stricken after an "acceptable" amount of time. Psychotherapist Judy Heath draws on extensive experience as a grief specialist in private practice to help those struggling with the anguish of loss. Addressing the myths and misinformation about mourning that still abound today, Heath gently coaches listeners to understand that coping with loss is a natural process that our society tends to avoid and hurry people through, often leading to unresolved, lasting grief. No Time for Tears offers practical advice for both short- and long-term recovery, including how to manage rarely discussed physical and emotional changes: feelings of "going crazy" and inability to focus, and feeling out of sync with the world, exhausted and chilled, and crushingly lonely. This updated second edition includes new information about medication and discusses various types of loss including that of a parent, child, spouse, friend, or pet. Helpful not only to grievers but also to those who care about, counsel, or employ them, No Time for Tears is an essential resource for grief management and recovery. 1. Language: English.

Life Takes Guts is my story about the tragedies I've experienced and come through that have made me a better person. With determination, courage, faith, and a never-give-up spirit, I am proud of who I have become today. Because of that fact, I was able to overcome all odds that may have caused many to give up and quit. My life story took a sharp turn when I was two years old. Tragically, I lost my father in an automobile accident. Soon afterward, my grief-stricken mother met a man who wined her and dined her, primarily for her insurance money. I was four when this same man was brought into my life as my stepfather. He abused me emotionally, sexually, physically, and mentally from that day until I was 16. I was removed from our home by authorities and placed into two different foster homes during my senior year of high school. I found myself pregnant at 18 by a man I loved, yet had no idea he was married. At 19, I became a mother to my daughter, Hannah. Sadly, at 21, I became pregnant by another man I barely knew and gave that child up for adoption at birth. When Hannah was seven, I married. The only problem was, at the time, I had no idea he was an alcoholic. He was abusive physically, mentally, and emotionally. During the years of our marriage, I had two sons, Kenneth and Michael. After 10 years of listening to his empty promises to get sober, I finally had the courage to leave. Thank God I did, for my children and myself. After that time, I traveled around Michigan while working for a national food service management company. Later in Reno, Nevada, I worked various jobs while supporting my two children. After being terminated from a good job while trying to buy a home, I made the decision to move to Hawaii, land of paradise, on New Year's Eve in 1979 and start a new life in paradise with my youngest, Michael, who was eight years old. Kenneth was visiting his father in Michigan at that time. In Hawaii, I rented a five bedroom h 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christine Myrick.

Climate change is a burning topic in global level which adversely affects agricultural production and livelihoods of our population through increased frequency of droughts and floods. By end of 21st century average global surface temperature may rise 1.4 to 5.80C. In tropical, yield of some crops would decrease with even minimal increases in temperature because they are near their maximum temperature tolerance. So, famine crop (finger millet) is best suited especially for drought stricken areas. It can lie dormant in the soil for weeks after receiving sudden rainfall, spring to life and ready for harvest in short period of time. It contains the most important amino acid (methionine) which is lacking in the diets of millions of the poor and popular among diabetic patients in all over the world due to its slow digestion indicates low blood sugar level. Regarding nutrient management, generally farmers apply chemical fertilizer alone in rainfed situation. But enriched form fertilizers will help to produce greater response. To overcome the problem of climate change, agronomic management practice (INM) will play a significant role to achieve sustainable productivity by farming society.
Study included socio economic characteristics, biodiversity assessment and land use of Argayuli Buffer Zone VDC of Chitwan National Park where information from 70 households based on random design, was gathered to tie up with vegetation ecology. The study forecast the socio economic status of buffer zone households where deficit is mainly managed through remittance and wage labor. About 48.6% of the households faced food deficit and 15.7% did not have food even for a month, suggesting widespread poverty. Though forest area in Argayuli VDC increased by 12.71% between 1978 and 1992, buffer zone forest can only sustainably fulfill 32% of fuel wood and 0.9% of green fodder annually suggesting dependency on national forest and park. People extract 47.36% fuel wood and 16.03% fodder demand from buffer zone forest indicating over harvesting of resources. Rhinos were considered the most destructive animal in poverty stricken area as they damage crops all round the year, threatening their subsistence that made local people behave adversely on park and park management. Besides, invasive species, Mikania micrantha inside community forest indicated the wildlife habitat may get deteriorated.
This monograph provides valuable lessons in building disaster resilience for rural communities and beyond. With a focus on Florida, the authors present a comprehensive review of the current debates surrounding the study of resilience, from federal frameworks, state plans and local initiatives. They also review evaluation tools and feature first-hand accounts of county emergency managers as well as non-profit and community groups on key issues, including perspectives on vulnerable groups such as the elderly, children and farm workers.Readers will find insightful answers to such questions as: How can the concept of resilience be used as a framework to investigate the conditions that lead to stronger, more sustainable communities? What factors account for the variation across jurisdictions and geographic units in the ability to respond to and recover from a disaster? How does the recovery process impact the social, political and economic institutions of the stricken communities? How do communities, especially rural ones, collaborate with multiple stakeholders (local, regional, state, national) during the transition from recovery to resilience? Can the collaborative nature of disaster recovery help build resilient communities?.The primary audiences of this book are scholars in emergency and crisis management, planning and policy, disaster response and recovery, disaster sociology and environmental management and policy. This book can also be used as a textbook in graduate and advanced undergraduate programs / courses on disaster management, disaster studies, emergency and crisis management, environmental policy and management and public policy and administration.
This book presents comparative analyses and accounts of the institutional changes that have occurred to the local level delivery of public utilities and personal social services in countries across Europe. Guided by a common conceptual frame and written by leading country experts, the book pursues a "developmental" approach to consider how the public/municipal sector-centred institutionalization of service delivery (climaxing in the 1970s) developed through its New Public Management-inspired and European Union market liberalization-driven restructuring of the 1980s and early 1990s. The book also discusses the most recent phase since the late 1990s, which has been marked by further marketization and privatization of service delivery on the one hand, and some return to public sector provision ("remunicipalization") on the other. By comprising some 20 European countries, including Central East European "transformation" countries as well as the "sovereign debt"-stricken countries of Southern Europe, the chapters of this volume cover a much broader cross section of countries than other recent publications on the same subject.
