Regression Methods in Biostatistics

release date: Mar 06, 2012
Regression Methods in Biostatistics
This new book provides a unified, in-depth, readable introduction to the multipredictor regression methods most widely used in biostatistics: linear models for continuous outcomes, logistic models for binary outcomes, the Cox model for right-censored survival times, repeated-measures models for longitudinal and hierarchical outcomes, and generalized linear models for counts and other outcomes. Treating these topics together takes advantage of all they have in common. The authors point out the many-shared elements in the methods they present for selecting, estimating, checking, and interpreting each of these models. They also show that these regression methods deal with confounding, mediation, and interaction of causal effects in essentially the same way. The examples, analyzed using Stata, are drawn from the biomedical context but generalize to other areas of application. While a first course in statistics is assumed, a chapter reviewing basic statistical methods is included. Some advanced topics are covered but the presentation remains intuitive. A brief introduction to regression analysis of complex surveys and notes for further reading are provided.

Slots

release date: Jan 03, 2012
Slots
A renowned psychiatrist explores the world of slot machine gambling and the almost religious devotion that has turned it into a billion-dollar industry. This astonishing book reveals that there’s a lot more to playing slot machines—one of America’s fastest growing forms of entertainment—than good fun, deep relaxation and the dream of a multi-million-dollar jackpot. Slots tells how the machines work, how the random numbers that govern them are generated, and how the casinos make their profit . . . slowly but surely . . . as they keep only a dime of every dollar invested. It also offers strategies of slot play, and suggests alternate activities to distract us when casinos become harmfully habitual. But ultimately, as Dr. Forrest writes, to spend one’s time feeding money to the machines is to participate in, well . . . a form of prayer. And the gaming industry seems very much aware of it, as players annually plunge more than $365-billion into slots (of which casinos keep about $30-billion); and as casinos—70 to 85 percent of whose profits are earned by slot machines—have spread to more than a dozen states and even into a number of racetracks (where they’re called “racinos”). What this book describes with both humor and a sense of awe is the way slots emporia have steadily been transformed from underground grottos to soaring cathedral-like structures where congregants sit and commune—all to the end of worshipping the god of chance.

Radionics & The Subtle Anatomy Of Man

release date: May 31, 2011
Radionics & The Subtle Anatomy Of Man
Radionics is defined as a method of diagnosis and therapy which is primarily concerned with the utilization of subtle force fields and energies, for the purpose of investigating and combating the causes of disease which ravage humanity and the other kingdoms of nature. But in examining the history and development of radionics from the pioneering work of Dr Albert Abrams and Ruth Drown to the latest experimental work at the de la Warr Laboratories, David Tansley discovered a curious paradox. In literature on the subject, and in the rate books which provide the very core of radionic therapeutic measures, there are plenty of references to man's physical organic systems, but little regarding the probability of underlying force fields which might govern and determine the health of the physical form. This book represents an informed endeavour to redress the balance by providing a simple yet practical outline of the subtle anatomy of man. The theory is not new: Abrams diagnosed at a distance, and Drown treated absent patients. David Tansley believes that the time is ripe for radionics to bear witness to an energy field of a more subtle nature: that is, in fact, its innate purpose.

Zazou and Rebecca

release date: Jul 22, 2017
Zazou and Rebecca
Zazou, an ageing artist enjoying a resurgence of his artistic powers and reputation, and Rebecca, a disabled daughter he knows nothing about, find their lives suddenly entwined. Rebecca appears one afternoon, in her wheelchair, at Zazou's house, exhausted by the journey from her home in the north of France to the village of Villefranche-Ferrals near the Mediterranean coast. She has been despatched by her mother, Ruth, who can no longer cope with her daughter's presence. In spite of Zazou's scepticism about the truth of Rebecca's story, and against his wishes, the women in his household immediately make her welcome. Clare, a strong and forthright Irishwoman, and Aline, Zazou's young model, help Rebecca establish herself as part of the 'family', while Rebecca herself tries to learn more about her father from his paintings. 'At the next painting she could pause again, briefly. Here was water, no mistake: disembodied forms dissolving and mingling in the semi-figurative style she had seen in the house. Here a fish, but not a fish, a sea-monster, or a human-being. Here the shadows under the sea's surface, the sunlight shaping reflections, spinning shadows so that the blues and oranges seemed to break out of the frame. And moving on, and on, canvas after canvas, with these abstractions of waterfalls, streams, drips, splashes, but also landscapes, faces, bodies, birds. Throb of head, wane of concentration. Please, to sit quietly in front of one canvas, still and serene, and imbibe this man my father. To lose myself in just one picture. A union in the world where my father is.' As the daughter, damaged both physically and emotionally, and her taciturn father grudgingly begin to accept one another, other influences from the hippie commune beyond the village further threaten to disrupt their fragile relationship. Aiden Skilbeck, a guitarist from the commune, makes an unexpected impression on her, and Ruth arrives at Villefranche-Ferrals, wanting to re-establish a connection with her daughter. When events take a disturbing turn, Rebecca has to make some difficult decisions.

Weights, Extrapolation and the Theory of Rubio de Francia

release date: Apr 06, 2011
Weights, Extrapolation and the Theory of Rubio de Francia
This book provides a systematic development of the Rubio de Francia theory of extrapolation, its many generalizations and its applications to one and two-weight norm inequalities. The book is based upon a new and elementary proof of the classical extrapolation theorem that fully develops the power of the Rubio de Francia iteration algorithm. This technique allows us to give a unified presentation of the theory and to give important generalizations to Banach function spaces and to two-weight inequalities. We provide many applications to the classical operators of harmonic analysis to illustrate our approach, giving new and simpler proofs of known results and proving new theorems. The book is intended for advanced graduate students and researchers in the area of weighted norm inequalities, as well as for mathematicians who want to apply extrapolation to other areas such as partial differential equations.

Beyond Eden

release date: Jul 30, 2017
Beyond Eden
What is it like to pose in the nude, the only one undressed, before an intensely observant audience? Thirty female and five male fine arts models tell their surprising experience. Who are these people? What can they tell us about the emotions of being examined, by and artist, a lover, or a doctor? Beyond Eden invites your curiosity. David Forrest has uncovered universal human truths in his studies of Vietnamese child-rearing and gambling addiction. Now he does the same in a warmly lyrical but also coolly analytic study of people who uncover themselves--i.e., the men and women who pose in the nude for artists and students of figure drawing. What he finds is a mystery of what is revealed and what hidden when we remove our outer garments, the state in which we entered the world, and in which we find ourselves most vulnerable to love, hate, and everything in between. --Martha Bayles, Boston University Columnist, The Wall Street Journal and Boston Globe; Author of Through a Screen Darkly: Popular Culture, Public Diplomacy and America's Image Abroad The intent of David Forrest's watercolor sketches of the models is not to display anatomy for the sake of anatomy, but to understand their underlying character. His contemporary objective, which I share in part, is not to be a mirror but to discover the emotional strength without self-deception that we have in direct visual contact with reality. From the earliest cave art, we see this modern aim to show the emotion in the subject. ---Alex Gamberg, Russian emigrE artist and illustrator, School of Sergei Orlov By picture and interview, David Forrest draws sensitive portraits of the fascinating and misunderstood women and men who are the subjects of Figurative artists. His watercolor sketches, created in minutes, are reminiscent of Chan painting. With an uncorrected brush, he creates empathic, convincing images of his subjects, whom he has freely encouraged to paint themselves in words. --Nancy C. Blume, Head of Arts Education, Asia Society Museum With an artist's keen eye, the author enters the mysterious private spaces of the silent models of fine artists, and accords them the ultimate respect of speaking for themselves. --Eric Fowler, Collections Manager, Society of Illustrators Which makes the book so especially rewarding: wonderful, illuminating, and compelling stories--and wonderful, sensitive drawings by--a psychoanalyst who happens also to be a fine artist? Or--is he a fine artist who happens also to be a psychoanalyst? I leave it to the reader, having read and seen this superb and unusual book, to decide. --Michael C. Stone, M.D., Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, Columbia University Author of The Anatomy of Evil and The Borderline Syndromes This unique and often quite beautiful book of portraits and interviews broaches a topic surprisingly absent from most medical school curricula: intimacy. The provocative issues raised by Dr. Forrest would profitably be addressed by physicians who, after all, have the rare opportunity both to see their patients' bodies and hear their innermost thoughts. --Barron Lerner, M.D., Professor of Medicine, New York University School of Medicine, Author of The Good Doctor: A Father, a Son and the Evolution of Medicine

The Lost Cyclist

release date: Jun 18, 2010
The Lost Cyclist
This “fascinating” story of a nineteenth-century mystery “should appeal to most lovers of history, as well as to bicycling enthusiasts. Strongly recommended” (Library Journal). In the late 1880s, Frank Lenz of Pittsburgh, a renowned high-wheel racer and long-distance tourist, dreamed of cycling around the world. He finally got his chance by recasting himself as a champion of the downsized “safety-bicycle” with inflatable tires, the forerunner of the modern road bike that was about to become wildly popular. In the spring of 1892 he quit his accounting job and gamely set out west to cover twenty thousand miles over three continents as a correspondent for Outing magazine. Two years later, after having survived countless near disasters and unimaginable hardships, he approached Europe for the final leg. Lenz never made it. His mysterious disappearance in eastern Turkey sparked an international outcry and compelled Outing to send William Sachtleben, another larger-than-life cyclist, on Lenz’s trail. Bringing to light a wealth of information, David Herlihy’s gripping narrative captures the soaring joys and constant dangers accompanying the bicycle adventurer in the days before paved roads and automobiles. This untold story culminates with Sachtleben’s heroic effort to bring Lenz’s accused murderers to justice, even as troubled Turkey teetered on the edge of collapse.

Thunder in the Dawn and the Uncanny Experiments of Dr. Varsag

release date: Jan 25, 2015
Thunder in the Dawn and the Uncanny Experiments of Dr. Varsag
Armchair Fiction presents classic sci-fi double novels. The first novel is "Thunder in the Dawn" by Henry Kuttner, and it's one of the most exciting fantasy tales you'll ever read. It is set in Atlantis and deals with Elak, the warrior prince who slew his father, the King of Cyrena, in a duel to the death. His brother, Orander, then inherited the thrown and Elak had gone into self-exile. But all was not well in Cyrena. A Viking invasion had upended the kingdom and Orander had been captured. But behind the Vikings was the magic of Elf, the most dreaded warlock in the whole of Atlantis. Elf's magic power held Orander a prisoner within the bowels of a crumbling castle. And soon Elf sent a magically empowered assassin to slay Elak. Only the magic of a mysterious Druid priest stood between Elak and death. Together they set out to rescue Orander; but the way to Cyrena was choked with danger, both human and inhuman. And soon Elak and his companions were faced with one terror after another. The second novel is "The Uncanny Experiments of Dr. Varsag" by David V. Reed. The truth of the matter is that there were two Dr. Varsags. Both men were brothers, and they conducted some amazing experiments involving men and animals. Even H. G. Wells' Dr. Moreau would have been green with envy. Their guinea pigs were all human: A striking cobra was slow motion in comparison to the lethal hand-speed of premier boxer, Dexter Montrex. Try to imagine a college track star like Bart Gottlieb, whose foot speed was so fast he could cut the record for the mile in half--almost effortlessly. And finally, with the incredible abilities of a mole and super-human strength, try to imagine what someone like Professor Marvin Williams could do; especially when burrowing under the vaults of some of the biggest banks around. With all this as a backdrop, we're sure you'll find this amazing tale to be one of the most unique pieces of sci-fi you've read in a long time.
