release date: Jan 29, 2021
A Rhodesian Story
This book details the life of James R ''Hamish'' Peters, a third generation Rhodesian, and seventh generation African. He grew up in Rhodesia and saw the best of the country growing up as a boy and later during his service with the Ministry of Internal Affairs. You will explore his adventures as a young boy, a teenager, a district commissioner, an honorary officer of the Game Department, an avid conservationist, and a fisherman. As a district commissioner his role changed from administration to one of ''winning the hearts and minds of the people'' during the bush war years. That was when he was named #1 on the hit list of Robert Mugabe, head of the Zimbabwe African National Union (ZANU), when Hamish led the war efforts in the war-torn Honde Valley. Follow the lives of Hamish Peters, and his wife, Sallie, as they raise a family, move from the center of the country to the west, to the south, to the west again, to the eastern districts and finally to the capital, Salisbury. See Rhodesia through their eyes and join them in the joys and challenges they faced. See also how faith in God influenced their lives in so many ways.

The Deeds of the Disturber
An Egyptologist investigates a death at the British Museum in a “charming” Victorian mystery by the New York Times–bestselling author of The Painted Queen (The Denver Post). Back in London after an archaeological dig, adventurous sleuth Amelia Peabody—“rather like Indiana Jones, Sherlock Holmes and Miss Marple all rolled into one”—discovers that a night watchman at the museum has perished in the shadow of a mummy case (The Washington Post Book World). There are murmurings about an ancient curse, but a skeptical Amelia is determined to find an all-too-human killer. Soon, she’s balancing family demands, including the troubles of her precocious son, Ramses (aka Walter), with not just one unsolved crime, but two . . . From a recipient of multiple honors including the Mystery Writers of America’s Grand Master Award, this murder mystery set in Victorian-era England is a witty, rollicking, and “deeply satisfying” romp (Entertainment Weekly) in a “jewel of a series” (The New York Times Book Review).

Egypt, 1912. Amelia Peabody and her dashing archaeologist husband, Radcliffe Emerson, are once again in danger as they search for a priceless, stolen bust of legendary Queen Nefertiti... Arriving in Cairo for another thrilling excavation season, Amelia is relaxing in her elegant hotel suite when a man with knife protruding from his back staggers into her chamber and utters a single word -''Murder'' - before collapsing on the floor, dead. It soon becomes apparent that someone has saved Amelia from a would-be assassin-someone who is keeping a careful eye on the intrepid archaeologist. And there can be only one answer: the brilliant master of disguise, Sethos. For Amelia, this excavation season will prove to be unforgettable; one where a brilliant criminal will offer his final challenge . . . and perhaps be unmasked at last.

Fatherhood
How much power does a father have to influence his children''s development? A lively and often heated public debate on the role and value of the father in a family has been underway in the United States for the past decade. Nevertheless, we are far from understanding the complex ways in which fathers make contributions to their families and children. Fatherhood: Research, Interventions, and Policies addresses the central questions of the role of fathers: Ž What is the impact of father involvement on child outcomes? Ž What factors predict increased involvement of fathers? Bringing together papers presented at the Conference on Father Involvement, this volume includes contributions by leading scholars in anthropology, demography, economics, family science, psychology, and sociology. Many of the contributors also address the implications of father involvement for family policy issues, including family leave, child care, and child support. Furthermore, the discussion of fatherhood ranges well beyond the case of intact, middle-class, white families to include fathers from various ethnic groups and socioeconomic classes and of varied marital status, including fathers of nonmarital children, single-father families, and nonresident fathers. Fatherhood: Research, Interventions, and Policies addresses both practical and theoretical concerns, including: the redefinition of fatherhood changes over time in research on fatherhood the predictive power of fathers’activities on their children''s adult outcomes the correlation between fathers’income and their involvement with their nonmarital children the influence of fathers on their sons’probability of growing up to become responsible fathers the effects of divorce on father-son and father-daughter relationships interventions that help to keep divorced fathers in touch with their children This comprehensive, powerful book combines pioneering empirical research with thoughtful consideration of the social and psychological implications of fatherhood. It is essential reading for researchers, policymakers, psychologists, and students of family studies, human development, gender studies, social policy, sociology, and human ecology.

Challenges in Conducting a Psychometric Study to Establish Sensitivity and Specificity of a Nurse-driven Stroke Swallow Screen

Challenges in Conducting a Psychometric Study to Establish Sensitivity and Specificity of a Nurse-driven Stroke Swallow Screen
Psychometric properties and testing of instruments, tools, and surveys are a challenge and often foreign concept for many students and experienced nurses. This case study describes the approach taken to establish sensitivity and specificity of the Maxwell Swallow Screen, a screening tool developed by a speech-language pathologist for use by nurses in the acute care setting to determine the possibility of aspiration and the need for further comprehensive evaluation. Each step of the research process is described from the perspective of how the team coalesced expertise while facing challenges in design, implementation, and analysis. Because this type of research was far from the traditional project improvement project familiar to the team, we worked to create a structure that merged education with open dialogue by: creating relatable terms and definitions, immersing all team members in the literature for perspective and design, and creating shared purpose in the interest of improved patient outcomes. Practical considerations and lessons learned include the need to create a research team comprising experts with complementary skill sets, establish simple rules and definitions around the structure and process to provide a roadmap, create a safe environment for open dialogue within the team to ensure integrity of data and congruent understanding of data collection plan, and build education and communication of the research project''s progress into each step to ensure stakeholders were kept in the loop. Ultimately, the research provided statistically significant results to validate the Maxwell Swallow Screen as a sensitive and specific screening tool for stroke patients to identify risk for aspiration.
