Bad Can Be Broken by Raven White Book Feature


Title: Bad Can Be Broken

Author: Raven White

Publisher: iUniverse

Pages: 186

Genre: Biography

Format: Ebook/Paperback

Purchase at AMAZON

A rebellious and willful woman, author Raven White spent years stewing her organs in lethal concoctions of alcohol, meth, marijuana, and cocaine. Running from relationships and self-medicating was routine. Colon cancer and a life expectancy of three to five years became the “cure” she needed to hear God’s voice.

In Bad Can Be Broken, she narrates the story of how stage four colon cancer at first was her nemesis, but how it ultimately became the reason she now lives a life filled with love, joy, and peace. This memoir details her specific struggles, including being a cancer warrior, and it also discusses the challenges she faced long before accepting God. White tells how she believes the karma racked up in her teens through her late thirties led to having to swallow the weight of a life-threatening illness.

Touching on spirituality and maturing as a human being, Bad Can Be Broken offers hope and inspiration. White shows how she found peace and purpose and tells how it is available for others facing the same challenges.

Wake Up, Lien. Think for Yourself! by William Van Vynck Book Feature

Wake Up LienTitle: Wake Up, Lien. Think for Yourself!
Author: William Van Vynck
Publisher: iUniverse
Pages: 313
Genre: Religious
Format: Ebook/Paperback

Purchase at AMAZON

“Wake up, Lien. Think for yourself!” describes the origins and some of the history and the excesses of Christianity and Islam. It shows how mind-control enters into the formation of these religions, and it urges the reader to free himself or herself from the out-dated notions that may have been implanted in his mind by parents, teachers, and religious functionaries. It suggests the Eastern teaching of reincarnation as a possible substitute as that appears to be a more satisfying and logical belief system.

amazon

 

When during World War II the Germans forced the author into slave labor and forced him to dig trenches during the night in the no-man’s-land along the Russian front, he faced death every hour of every night. He prayed to God to get him out of that hell but to no avail.

A Guide to the Study of Basic Medical Mycology by Kee Peng Ng

Title: A Guide to the Study of Basic Medical Mycology

Author: Kee Peng Ng

Publisher: Partridge Singapore

Pages: 92

Genre: Medical

Format: Paperback/Kindle

Mycotic diseases are gaining importance because of the increase in opportunistic fungal infections in patients whose immune systems are compromised. The identification of fungi isolated from clinical material has posed a variety of problems to many laboratories because of lack of expertise and experience, especially in the identification of recently emerged rare fungi that had not been previously reported.

A Guide to the Study of Basic Medical Mycology offers an overview of the basic characteristics of fungi frequently isolated from clinical specimens. This comprehensive guide, developed by authors Kee Peng Ng, Tuck Soon Soo-Hoo, and Shiang Ling Na from the Department of Medical Microbiology, University Malaya Medical Centre, Malaysia, details the macro- and microscopic features of each fungus through graphics and illustrations.

Including specimens not often found in all teaching modules, A Guide to the Study of Basic Medical Mycology serves to help medical students identify and learn to deal with clinically important fungi and fungal pathogens.

Angels in Disguise: Stories from America’s School Nurses by Dolores McNany Book Feature


Title: Angels in Disguise: Stories from America’s School Nurses

Author: Dolores McNany

Publisher: iUniverse

Pages: 166

Genre: Medical/Nursing

Format: Paperback/Ebook

Purchase at AMAZON

School nurses serve on the front lines of the everyday struggle for our children’s health, yet they are often perceived as little more than glorified dispensers of bandages. This false perception, held by many parents, officials, and administrators, does a serious disservice to this dedicated group of health professionals.

Angels in Disguise tells the oral history of school nursing through the eyes, ears, and hearts of school nurses serving throughout the United States. By sharing their personal experiences, these nurses illustrate their love and compassion and throw the doors wide open on this often-undervalued profession, enabling readers to see into their world and understand how much they truly care for the children they treat.

This collection of heartwarming stories offers unique insight into the daily responsibilities and duties of school nurses and serves to raise public awareness of the dedication, leadership, and exemplary pediatric health care provided by the devoted women and men who care for America’s schoolchildren.

The sophisticated medical health care required in schools today can only be delivered by qualified professional school personnel, and that challenge is met by having a school nurse in every school facility.
