Layover In Dubai from the Author: Dan Fesperman. The newest thriller from the author of The Amateur Spy and The Prisoner of Guantánamo (“Worthy of sharing shelf space with the novels of John le Carré and Ken Follett”—USA Today) is as dazzling as its setting. Sam Keller has been enlisted by his V.P. for Corporate Security and Investigation to spy on another employee while they’re traveling for the company. Ordinarily careful to a fault, Sam decides to live it up. What better spot for business-class hedonism than boomtown Dubai, where resort islands materialize from open ocean, fortunes are made overnight, and skiers crisscross the snowy slope of a shopping mall. But when Sam’s charge is murdered during a night on the town, it is only the first in a series of bewildering events that plunge him waist-deep into a lethal mix of mobsters, prostitutes, crooked cops, consuls, and corporate players. Offering a chancy way out is Anwar Sharaf, the unlikeliest of detectives. A former pearl diver and gold smuggler with an undignified demeanor, Sharaf is sometimes as baffled as Sam by the changes to his homeland, especially as they are embodied in the behavior of his rebelliously independent—and hauntingly beautiful—daughter. But he knows where the levers of power reside. As the unlikely duo work their way toward the heart of the case, each man must confront the darkest forces threatening Dubai from within. Here is Dan Fesperman’s most suspenseful novel yet: a stunning portrait of a city whose mysterious rhythm (“like the precision throb of an artificial heart, clicking and insistent, yet cool to the touch”) is underscored by the insistent clashing of old and new. From the Hardcover edition.

The Neurosciences And The Practice Of Aviation Medicine from the Author: Anthony N. Nicholson. This book brings the neurosciences to operational and clinical aviation medicine. It is concerned with the physiology and pathology of circadian rhythmicity, orientation, hypotension and hypoxia, and with disorders of the central nervous system relevant to the practice of aviation medicine. The chapters on circadian rhythmicity and orientation deal with the impaired alertness and sleep disturbance associated with desynchrony and with the effects of linear and angular accelerations on spatial awareness. Hypotension and hypoxia cover cerebral function during increased gravitational stress, clinical aspects of exposure to acute hypoxia, the mild hypoxia of the cabin of transport aircraft, adaptation and acclimatization to altitude and decompression at extreme altitudes and in space. Disorders of particular significance to the practice of aviation medicine such as excessive daytime sleepiness, epilepsy, syncope, hypoglycaemia, headache and traumatic brain injury are covered, while neuro-ophthalmology, the vestibular system and hearing also receive detailed attention. The potentially adverse effects of the aviation environment and of disorders of the nervous system are brought together, and the text covers the neurological examination as it relates to aircrew and explores current management and therapeutics. The Neurosciences and the Practice of Aviation Medicine is an essential work for those involved in the practice of aviation medicine where familiarity with the effects of the aviation environment on the nervous system and understanding the pathophysiology of relevant clinical disorders are of prime concern. The authors from leading centres of excellence are physiologists concerned with the aviation environment and physicians involved in the day-to-day practice of medicine. They bring to this authoritative text wide experience and expertise in both the experimental and clinical neurosciences.

Politics Of Anti Racism Education In Search Of Strategies For Transformative Learning from the Author: George J. Sefa Dei. This collection of essays invites readers to think through critical questions concerning anti-racism education, such as: How does anti-racism education centre race as an analytic and simultaneously work with multiple sites of oppression, without reifying hierarchies of difference? How can anti-racism education be engaged to speak to historical questions of power and privilege, within conventional schooling practices? How do we recognize anti-racism education in its many iterations? In this book the authors explore the knowledge that constitutes anti-racism education and the ways in which knowledge constitutive of anti-racism education becomes embodied through particular pedagogues. The authors are anti-racism educators with experiences in diverse settings: the chapters cover various fields and socio-historic geographies, address contemporary educational issues, and are situated within personal-political, historical and philosophical conversations. Anti-racism education is a discursive stance and steeped in politics that shape and are shaped by everyday conversations, theories, and practices. The essays in this collection work through many of the possibilities and limitations of engaging in counter-hegemonic education for transformative learning. Readers will discover lived experiences, theory, practice and critical reflexivity.

The Dream Of My Life from the Author: MD Shamsul A. Chowdhury. The world is increasingly experiencing difficulties to ensure a healthy and peaceful atmosphere for the human beings to live in peace. The terrorism is on the rise and its associated problems are deepening every day, the bubble of religious disharmony and dissensions are on the brink to burst, the healthcare products and services are gradually going out of the reach of the common people but should have been readily available exploring the Information Technology. The global village is in disarray owing to uncertainty and insecurity though it should have been a heavenly place for each and every human being to live exploring the modern technology. The peace-loving people have become exorbitantly nervous and pessimistic than ever before about their future. It's the time for “someone” to steer an “exorcism initiative” to bell the cat to promote everlasting peace in the world. “The Dream of My Life” is the reflection of such an initiative to drive the noblest ideas to create an atmosphere favorable for every human being to live in peace and harmony in this divine world. The author has created some fictitious characters to steer his ideas to materialize his dream to bring peace in the world. Shams and Emily were the main characters in the book representing a Muslim man and a Christian woman respectively. They got acquainted with each other while studying PMBA in the well reputed The George Washington University, Washington DC. Emily got emotionally attached to Shams due to his extraordinary qualities while spying on him being an agent of a great great U.S. agency. Shams also fallen in love with her for her glorious attitude, brilliant ideas, talents and amazing beauties. However, they were more dedicated and devoted to each other for their innovative and philanthropic ideas to make this world safer and healthier for every human being to live in peaceful coexistence. They had cited an example by sacrificing their societal status owing to different religions to prove that religion can't be the barrier to lead a happy conjugal life. They have showcased their marriage to project that the religions must not be the obstacle to the everlasting peace rather should complement each other. They have undergone many rational debates of contemporary theories including global politics, bureaucracies, religions, terrorism, corruption, poverty, and promoting quality healthcare services worldwide before their decision to marry. The book has also showcased the differences of traditions, cultures, governance, corruptions, education, public policy issues, and many other aspects of the developed and developing world. The Dream of My Life has also proved that all human brains are same and promoted the assertion of President Jefferson that all men are created equal. The author has also architected and beautifully narrated the amazing land and seascape of the USA through some awesome long drives of Emily and Shams. All the debates are based on references and have been logically argued upon to reach the conclusions. The author has focused on the similarities of the religions and avoided the manmade dissimilarities to give birth to a common platform to reach a consensus to promote peace and harmony in the world. The wonderful debates of Emily and Shams have orchestrated global social revolution and established themselves as the model of peace in the world by binding them closer together to promote everlasting peace in the world.
