Books Description:

Love Is Blind meets You’ve Got Mail in this laugh-out-loud romantic comedy following two thirty-somethings who meet on a blind dating app—only to realize that their online chemistry is nothing compared to their offline rivalry. Perpetually cheerful and eager to please, Gracie Cooper strives to make the best out of every situation. So when her father dies just months after a lung cancer diagnosis, she sets aside her dreams of pursuing her passion for art to take over his Midtown Manhattan champagne shop. She soon finds out that the store’s profit margins are being squeezed perilously tight, and complicating matters further, a giant corporation headed by the impossibly handsome, but irritatingly arrogant Sebastian Andrews is proposing a buyout. But Gracie can’t bear the thought of throwing away her father’s dream like she did her own. Overwhelmed and not wanting to admit to her friends or family that she’s having second thoughts about the shop, Gracie seeks advice and solace from someone she’s never met—the faceless “Sir”, with whom she connected on a blind dating app where matches get to know each other through messages and common interests before exchanging real names or photos. But although Gracie finds herself slowly falling for Sir online, she has no idea she’s already met him in real life…and they can’t stand each other.

Atlas of Anatomy of the Peripheral Nerves

Author:Philippe Rigoard



Total Pages:322



Books Description:

This innovative atlas focuses on peripheral nerves and provides a brand new approach compared to regular anatomy books. Using a modern 3D approach, it offers an alternative to conventional anatomical structures. It reviews all the anatomy and the morphology of these structures from an original point of view. In these three-dimensional diagrams, as well as in the watercolor drawings enhanced with a 3D inlay, each type of nerve is depicted in a minute detail. The atlas simplifies the anatomy and make it easy and understandable by allowing readers to develop a mental “real-time 3D GPS”. The integration of MRI sections related to the drawings and the descriptions of the main nerve injuries provide medical students with a flexible but effective transition to the radiological interpretation and furthers the clinical learning process. After a detailed evaluation of the morphofunctional anatomy of the peripheral nerves, the authors present a collection of relevant data on neuromuscular transmission, both from classical and recent literature, ranging from the central and peripheral nervous system to the effector muscle. This information offers a basis for understanding the physiology, the pathology, and the repair prospects of peripheral nerves from a purely theoretical point of view.The book is divided into three main parts: - Fundamental notions: from immunohistochemistry to limb innervation- The upper limb: the brachial plexus and related peripheral nerves- The lower limb: the lumbosacral plexus and related peripheral nerves This atlas also features 261 outstanding full-colour 2D and 3D illustrations. Each picture has been designed in 2D and 3D with a combination of the original editor’s personal drawings/paintings and 3D-modeling tools. This book is a valuable resource for anyone studying medicine, anaesthesiology, neurosurgery, spine surgery, pain, radiology or rheumatology and is also of high interest to the whole medical community in general.

Books Description:

Ce sixième opus de la collection aborde les arts martiaux et les sports de combat sous l’angle de la diversité des pratiques. Parce que le panorama social est pluriel, ces disciplines doivent être envisagées dans leur forme individuelle et singulière pour en saisir toute la complexité. Les textes présentés dans cet ouvrage montrent comment les arts martiaux et les sports de combat existent et évoluent dans nos sociétés selon différentes finalités : la manière dont certains praticiens s’investissent dans la recherche ; comment les milieux sociaux des disciplines influent sur les praticiens ; la construction sociale des valeurs chez les praticiens ; la façon dont les blessures sont vécues et interprétées ; la place du corps dans les entraînements exigeants en fonction d’une recherche de haute performance ; ainsi que le rapport aux disciplines au sein d’une société qui cherche à maintenir ses pratiques traditionnelles dans un monde en changement. Cet ouvrage réunit des collaborations de chercheurs universitaires. Tous ont en commun l’intérêt de l’avancement des connaissances sur la thématique des arts martiaux et des sports de combat par le moyen des sciences sociales. Ont contribué à cet ouvrage les auteurs suivants : Olivier Bernard, Paul Bowman, Frédéric Dubois, Aurélie Épron, Christophe Gobbé, Louis-Étienne Pigeon, David Pineault, Alexandra Rouleau et Cheikh Tidiane Wane.
