A Life Terminal from the Author: Jane Doe. A Life Terminal is a novel in the medical setting, which follows the comical escapades of characters from vastly different worlds. They range from the eccentric walks of life - a senior citizen prostitute to an austere billionaire - to the very ordinary. We share in their joy and grief, courage and foolishness, as they putter through the clutter of everyday life, cope with grotesque rules, and eventually hurtle toward their inevitable fates. As in life, some of these characters disappear from view following a brief random encounter; others become integral players in the story. They travel separate haphazard journeys but, as they navigate together through the illogical hurdles of our healthcare system, their lives become oddly intertwined. Beneath their differences, they share common hopes, fears and vulnerabilities, living out the same story over and over again. Jane Doe was an ordinary person born into an average family. She grew up in a small town in a working class neighborhood. Odd circumstances brought her into the city, where she started a new life. She became a doctor, which gave her the opportunity to enter the worlds of people from diverse backgrounds, of various stations of life. She was allowed to share with them some of their innermost thoughts and most difficult moments. Inspired by their common plight, she wrote a book A Life Terminal. Then she disappeared into the obscurity from whence she came.

Terminal Life from the Author: Richard Torregrossa. Luke Stark, a Special Forces veteran, returns home from his second tour in Afghanistan to learn that his wife has been mysteriously murdered and his son has disappeared. These tragedies, in addition to suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, push him over the edge. He has also been diagnosed with an incipient form of cancer, but he forgoes treatment, a decision that is akin to a slow suicide. Although he lives in a shelter, he wears an impeccable suit, an eccentric characteristic that sets him apart from his fellow down-and-outers and just about everybody else. He is nicknamed, somewhat ironically, The Suited Hero. Revenge and the search for his son spark a kind of rebirth in him that is as cathartic as it is brutal. This leads him into the dangerous world of illegal prescription drug distribution, where nobody in this gripping mystery crime thriller‚ÄĒ not even some family members‚ÄĒis who they appear to be.

You would likely do the things you've always dreamed of doing, spend time with the people you love, let go of petty grievances, and make the most of every moment. This book challenges you by asking, "Why are you not living that way right now?" In addition to fostering personal growth, you will be inspired by the lives of others who have lived terminal lives, and be equipped with practical illustrations on how you, too, can live a life beyond limits. "Terminal Living inspires us to invest our time and energy in endeavors that matter - now! Many of us have dreams and good intentions, but we postpone taking action until it is too late. Sandy challenges us to choose to live each day bravely and purposefully by pursuing personal growth, investing in others and leaving a legacy for the next generation. She inspires all of us to become everyday heroes by facing our fears and living for something greater than ourselves. I highly recommend Terminal Living to anyone who desires a more purposeful life." - Judy Rushfeldt, Award-winning author, speaker and online magazine publisher About the Author: Dr. Sandy Madden is a popular keynote speaker for various conferences and seminars and has travelled extensively doing humanitarian work in developing nations around the world.

Back To Life from the Author: Kathy McLaughlin. Kathy McLaughlin was a senior corporate executive when she learned she had Hodgkins Lymphoma. She survived, only to learn years later that her cancer had returned ‚ÄĒ but this time, it was accompanied by a terminal autoimmune liver disease. Neither disease was treatable because of the presence of the other. Told by her doctors ‚Äúthere is nothing we can do,‚ÄĚ she refused to give up. Instead, she took charge of her own healing project, applying the leadership skills she had perfected in her corporate career to the business of self-preservation. Enduring all manner of indignities through a comedy of medical errors, she miraculously survives near-fatal chemotherapy, life-threatening surgery, liver failure and ultimately, two gruelling liver transplant operations.

The Psychology Of Quality Of Life from the Author: M. Joseph Sirgy. This book summarizes much of the research in subjective well-being and integrates this research into a parsimonious theory. The theory posits that much of the research on subjective well-being can be construed in terms of the personal strategies that people use to `optimize' their happiness and life satisfaction. These strategies include bottom-up spillover, top-down spillover, horizontal spillover, balance, re-evaluation, goal selection, and goal implementation.

Intermodal Freight Terminals from the Author: Jason Monios. Much work has been done on port governance yet little has addressed intermodal terminal governance, despite the clear similarities. This book fills that gap by establishing a governance framework for situating analysis of intermodal terminals throughout their life cycle. A version of the product life cycle theory is amended with governance theory to produce a framework covering each stage of the terminal’s life cycle, from the initial planning to the many decisions taken regarding the public/private split in funding mechanisms, ownership, selecting an operator, specifying KPIs to the operator, setting fees, earning profit, ensuring fair access to all rail service operators, and finally to reconcessioning the terminal to a new operator, managing the handover and maintaining the terminal throughout its life cycle. An institutional analysis of stakeholder relations, situated within a governance framework, illuminates these issues and enables not only conceptualisation and greater understanding of the geography of intermodal transport, but also decision-making and goal-setting by planners and policy makers. This book thus has three functions: first, as a textbook on the planning and operation of intermodal terminals; second, as a presentation of recent empirical research on intermodal terminal governance; third, as a framework for future research in which the broad field of analysis of intermodal transport can be viewed through a single lens and used to inform geographers, policymakers and planners.

Terminal Sedation Euthanasia In Disguise from the Author: Torbj√∂rn T√§nnsj√∂. TERMINAL SEDATION DURING THE 1990s During the 1990s a discussion took place in scholarly journals concerning a measure within palliative care that had earlier attracted little attention, to wit, the sedation of dying patients. There seem to have been two main reasons why the practice came under debate. On the one hand, some people felt that, when palliative medicine had advanced and methods to control symptoms had improved, it was no longer justified to sedate the patients in a manner that had often been done in the past. The system of 1 terminal sedation had turned into ‚Äėeuthanasia in disguise‚Äô or ‚Äėslow euthanasia‚Äô. On the other hand, there were people sympathetic to the recently established Dutch system of euthanasia, people who agreed that terminal sedation was euthanasia in disguise, but who felt that, if it is not objectionable to sedate dying patients at their request, then why should it not be permitted for doctors to kill dying patients at 2 request? From these two motives a discussion about terminal sedation gained momentum. The intention behind this anthology is to continue and deepen this discussion. The anthology starts off with a chapter where an influential article from the 1990s has been reprinted.
