In Praise of Walking: The new science of how we walk and why it's good for us
'INFORMATIVE AND PERSUASIVE ENOUGH TO ROUSE THE MOST ARDENT COUCH POTATO' (NEW STATESMAN) IRISH TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER Walking upright on two feet is a uniquely human skill. It defines us as a species. It enabled us to walk out of Africa and to spread as far as Alaska and Australia. It freed our hands and freed our minds. We put one foot in front of the other without thinking - yet how many of us know how we do that, or appreciate the advantages it gives us? In this hymn to walking, neuroscientist Shane O'Mara invites us to marvel at the benefits it confers on our bodies and minds. In Praise of Walking celebrates this miraculous ability. Incredibly, it is a skill that has its evolutionary origins millions of years ago, under the sea. And the latest research is only now revealing how the brain and nervous system performs the mechanical magic of balancing, navigating a crowded city, or running our inner GPS system. Walking is good for our muscles and posture; it helps to protect and repair organs, and can slow or turn back the ageing of our brains. With our minds in motion we think more creatively, our mood improves and stress levels fall. Walking together to achieve a shared purpose is also a social glue that has contributed to our survival as a species. As our lives become increasingly sedentary, we risk all this. We must start walking again, whether it's up a mountain, down to the park, or simply to school and work. We, and our societies, will be better for it.

Sophie the Parisian: Style Tips From a True Parisian Woman
The Parisian woman is considered a female role model by definition: classical in taste, but independent and dynamic; elegant and sophisticated at times, feminine and seductive, but not vulgar; attentive to what she wears and taking care of her body, but without excessive vanity; and who has sophisticated and original but simple taste. Food lover and partygoer, she focuses on the quality of food rather than on her shape. Fond of natural beauty, and without plastic surgery, she doesn t try to hide the signs of aging, which she wears with pride. Sophie the Parisian doesn t take herself too seriously and uses a well-balanced mix of charm, great taste, and irony three typical traits of the modern Frenchwoman to cover topics ranging from fashion to the well-being of the body, from looks to health, from cooking to decoration: everything that makes the French joie de vivre a role-model lifestyle worldwide.

This new volume explores the importance of phytochemicals from plants in therapeutics, focusing on the extraction of bioactive compounds and their applications in human health.

It looks at advanced extraction techniques such as enzyme-assisted, microwave-assisted, ultrasound-assisted, pressurized liquid extraction, and supercritical extraction techniques. Part 2, on bioactive compounds and health claims, covers the roles of different bioactive compounds and their health-promoting potential for lifestyle diseases. This section explains the botany, physical characteristics, uniqueness, uses, distribution, importance, phytochemistry, bioactivities, and future trends of different functional foods.

A Year in the Life of a Dead Woman: Living with Terminal Cancer
Perhaps I should have realized that cancer runs in my family. After all, three grandparents and my father and brother perished from this disease. Yet, when I received my colorectal cancer diagnosis, I was surprised. I never expected to be primarily identified as a cancer patient. Following a typical combination of chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, and more chemo, I was presumably cancer-free when my post-treatment scans looked clean. Nonetheless, within a year I received a terminal diagnosis; cancer had metastasized in my lungs. Thus began my year as a dead woman--a time of chaotic emotions, new priorities, and rapid-fire plans and changes. Expecting the unexpected became a theme in my life, but what turned out to be most shocking are social, familial, and even my expectations about what is realistic for a dead woman to be or do. Preconceptions about a terminal cancer diagnosis frequently are based on popular culture depictions of cancer and dying, which can be misleading as a guide for knowing what to expect when you're expecting to die. This memoir provides one dead woman's often-irreverent, pop culture-illustrated guide to life that deconstructs some common preconceptions about living with a terminal diagnosis.

Open Side: The Official Autobiography
`A terrific book. No one put their body on the line quite like Sam Warburton.' Brian O'Driscoll `It was an absolute privilege to play against Sam. An inspiring leader with an equally inspiring story to tell.' Jonny Wilkinson Sam Warburton OBE was not only a titan of Welsh rugby, but an icon of the game. Having represented his country as a player and team captain at all junior levels, he propelled himself to international attention in 2011 when named as the youngest ever captain of Wales for the Rugby World Cup. Despite his tender age, Sam's immense displays for club and country were recognised still further in April 2013, when, at just 24, he was named the Lions' captain for the extraordinary 2013 tour to Australia. Four years later, after a year `in the wilderness', Sam was named Lions' captain yet again for the historic tour to New Zealand, thereby becoming the first ever Lions Captain never to lose a series in the professional era. Intelligent, calm, thoughtful - in many ways seemingly the exact opposite of the smash and crash of modern rugby - Warburton's edge never came with his size, but with his depth of thought, his reading of movement, and his understanding that, to be a uniquely successful leader, one needs to set goals that far exceed the ambitions of even the most ferocious of opponents. In leading other men, and in pitting himself against the world's best, Warburton was forced repeatedly to push himself to the very edge of his physiological and mental limits, the 21 significant injuries over that period a painful testament to his sacrifice. Open Side is therefore not simply a chronology of events or a celebration of statistics. Written in a compelling but soul searching style, this is an astoundingly personal book exploring the nature of leadership, the value of self-control, the precision of mindset and of course the future of the game. It is also a deeply personal meditation on the sacrifice of body, the torment of injury and the pain of retirement, a decision Sam was forced to make in July 2018, at just 29 years old. Never before has a rugby autobiography given such intimate access not only to the realities of the dressing room and the heroes and villains of the modern game, but to the unique mindset required to make someone a genuinely great leader of men.

Office Hours: What Every University Student Needs to Know
The university office hour interaction is new to everyone who attends a university. Not knowing what to do or when to go is not unique to international students. Office Hours: What Every University Student Needs to Know sets out to demystify the entire process of office hours-the purpose and goals of these meetings, how to plan for them, and even determining whether to visit the professor or send an email. Information about group office hours, which are becoming more common, is also included. This task-based book also describes the five moves, or parts, of an office hour interaction and provides many examples and tasks to help guide students through this important communicative aspect of academic life. It seeks to ensure that every office hour interaction ends on a positive note. Reflection questions for new teaching assistants are included throughout, making this ideal for TA workshops. Four analysis tasks are included to accompany the four videos that explore various student-professor interactions.

Understanding the Pelvis: A Functional Approach to Yoga
All yoga instructors use cues as they teach their classes. But sometimes these cues can be vague, misleading or even anatomically incorrect. That makes Understanding the Pelvis: A Functional Approach to Yoga a vital resource for yoga instructors. The text focuses on dispelling the misconceptions surrounding the biomechanics of the pelvis. It uses an evidence-based scientific perspective to teach how the pelvis bones move. Following this, you will learn how to apply that knowledge through the practice of 26 asanas designed to improve pelvic function and yoga technique. The asanas are all accompanied by 66 colour illustrations that show proper technique and bring the exercises to life. Using his famed Franklin Method, Eric Franklin combines movement, imagery and touch to help instructors correct their techniques to maximise pelvic function. Understanding the Pelvis will help you safely and effectively use the pelvis in yoga. The ability to correctly use anatomical cues and guide yogis through their movements will provide you with a new level of confidence and expertise in your workshops and classes. It gives you the knowledge needed to avoid injury and fully enjoy the benefits of yoga.

The Art of Collectivity: Social Circus and the Cultural Politics of a Post-Neoliberal Vision
Amidst epidemics of youth alienation and cultural polarization, community-based artistic practices are sprouting up around the world as antidotes to policies of austerity and social exclusion. Rejecting the radical individualism of the neoliberal era, many artistic projects promote collectivity and togetherness in navigating challenges and constructing shared futures. The Art of Collectivity is about how one such creative social program deployed this approach in service of a post-neoliberal vision. Focusing on a national social circus initiative launched by a newly elected Ecuadorean government to help actualize its citizens' revolution, the book explores the intersection between global cultural politics, participatory arts, collective health, and social transformation. The authors include scholars and practitioners of community arts, humanities, social sciences, and health sciences from the Global North and Global South. Sensitive to hierarchical binaries such as research/practice, north/south, and art/science, they work together to provide a multifaceted analysis of the way cultural politics shape policy, pedagogy, and aesthetic sensibilities, as well as their socio-cultural and health-related effects. The largest study of social circus to date, combining detailed quantitative, qualitative, and arts-based research, The Art of Collectivity is a timely contribution to the study of cultural policies, critical pedagogies, collective art-making, and community development.

Approaching Death: A Companion's Guide to the End of Life
Just as no person is the same as another, each death is individual. This special book does not promote methodologies or theories, but rather offers insights, information and contemplations on the end of life. It supports the companions of those on their dying journey, whether volunteers, medical professionals, pastors or loved ones. Renee Zeylmans taught courses on accompanying dying and bereavement for many years. She described the journey towards death as a reciprocal process, asking not only how do we travel with those who are dying and what can we give them, but what do they give us? This book is the fruit of a lifetime's work, and her intention was for it to enrich the reader, throw a new light on difficult situations, evoke recognition, console and offer choices. As well as host of practical information about dying and death -- including questions around the physiology of death, fear, fasting, funerals, music, language, and human senses -- the book contains contemplations and meditations from different world views and cultures.

The Autoimmune Brain: A Five-Step Plan for Treating Chronic Pain, Depression, Anxiety, Fatigue, and Attention Disorders
There are millions of people who experience issues related to brain health--depression, attention issues, anxiety, forgetfulness, fatigue, and even chronic pain--yet can't figure out what's causing their problems and can't find any relief. They may have seen a myriad of doctors, many of whom do not take their complaints seriously, or worse, turn to the easy, albeit inappropriate fix of antidepressants or antianxiety medications. Traditional medications, supplements, or other therapies haven't worked. No matter what their age-from children to teens to seniors--these people and their loved ones are frustrated, scared, and confused by their continued poor health. Countless others display more severe psychiatric symptoms that seem to come out of nowhere: obsessive-compulsive behaviors, suicidal thoughts, tics, and mood swings reminiscent of bipolar disorder. Sometimes, the person affected is the only one that notices a change to the way they think or feel, and they suffer in silence. Or, they reach out to try to get help, and are all too frequently misdiagnosed. Now, David Younger, a world-renowned physician, board-certified in Internal Medicine, Neurology and Psychiatry, with postdoctoral training in public health and epidemiology, can finally provide relief to these patients and their families. His diagnostic techniques and treatment protocols will help readers identify the true cause of their symptoms and put them on a clear path to healing so they no longer feel crazy, out of control, forgetful, and exhausted. THE AUTOIMMUNE BRAIN connects common brain health symptoms to the changes in the immune system, and particularly bacterial, viral, and parasitic infections. In this book, Younger will explain his groundbreaking research and adds a new component: how traumatic stress (whether physical or emotional) and genetics affects this same triad as inextricable factors in initiating disease and brain health symptoms. In fact, a change in personality, behavior, coping style, and one's emotional state may be the first clue that there is a health problem brewing somewhere else in the body. Readers will find new answers to troubling conditions, including: * Alzheimer's disease * Anxiety * Arthritis * Autism * Bacterial infections * Bipolar Disorder * Cancer * Celiac disease and gluten intolerances * Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (now referred to as Systemic Exertion Intolerance Disease) * Chronic Pain * Dementia * Depression * Endocrine Disorders * Lyme disease and co-infections * Obsessive Compulsive Disorder * Porphyria * Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder A 5-Step Plan for Optimal Brain and Body Health Younger has focused his career on neuroimmunology--the intersection of neurology and how the immune system affects the brain. He was among the first to bring to the nation's awareness the triad of infection, immunity, and inflammation, abbreviated as I-Cubed, and known more commonly by physicians as post-infectious autoimmunity. More importantly, Younger has developed cutting edge treatment protocols centered on immune modulatory therapy (known as IVIg) that have been adopted by doctors across the country and will be featured in this book. His unique treatment plan has become the most widely employed immune modulating agent for autoimmune neurological disorders. Including the most recent research and illuminating patient anecdotes, this new book highlights an early detection and treatment model that is based on a simple 5-step plan that can help readers of all ages reverse their brain health issues as well as their physical health by resetting the immune system. This will be the first book to explain to a lay audience in clear and accessible language, how seemingly unrelated diseases are linked to a common cause-- autoimmunity--and can be treated by following a singular immune-enhancing program that addresses brain health. While our genetic blueprint presumably maps an unchangeable path to illnesses, epigenetics shows that the genes for a variety of inflammatory autoimmune and neurodegenerative disorders may be silenced by following this holistic approach. Much like high blood pressure, obesity, and other persistent illnesses, autoimmunity needs to be managed daily with an individualized program that works. This book will present Younger's new paradigm for identifying illness and resetting the immune system, summarized by the acronym TAPES: * Test for the most likely autoimmune disturbance right at home, and discover how a specific autoimmune response may be affecting brain health * Apply immune modulating therapies (under a doctor's care) that will address both the immune response and changes to brain health * Participate in the most effective behavioral/therapeutic options to reduce stress and reverse fatigue, anxiety, depression, and memory loss * Eat & Exercise to restore brain health, alleviate pain, and enhance the immune system * Survey your home for chemical exposures, and remove mold, heavy metals, and other allergens that can stand in the way of a full recovery Tests The finished book will feature three unique tests readers can rely on to help diagnose an autoimmune brain health issue. The first test will clearly show how an underlying illness may in cause brain health symptoms including fatigue, forgetfulness, anxiety, depression, poor attention, loss of memory, and more. Created specifically for this book, these tests are the best and least invasive ways for readers to figure out and manage their symptoms: the results will direct them to the appropriate chapters in the book for specific treatments.

Without the Banya We Would Perish: A History of the Russian Bathhouse
When so much in Russia has changed, the banya remains. For over one-thousand years Russians of every economic class, political party, and social strata have treated bathing as a communal activity integrating personal hygiene and public health with rituals, relaxation, conversations, drinking, political intrigue, business, and sex. Communal steam baths have survived the Mongols, Peter the Great, and Soviet communism and remain a central and unifying national custom. Combining the ancient elements of earth, water, and fire, the banya paradoxically cleans bodies and spreads disease, purifies and defiles, creates community and underscores difference. Here, Ethan Pollock tells the history of this ubiquitous and enduring institution. He explores the bathhouse's role in Russian identity, following public figures (from Catherine the Great to Rasputin to Putin), writers (such as Chekhov and Dostoevsky), foreigners (including Mark Twain and Casanova), and countless other men and women into the banya to discover the meanings they have found there. The story comes up to the present, exploring the continued importance of banyas in Russia and their newfound popularity in cities across the globe. Drawing on sources as diverse as ancient chronicles, government reports, medical books, and popular culture, Pollock shows how the banya has persisted, adapted, and flourished in the everyday lives of Russians throughout wars, political ruptures, modernization, and urbanization. Through the communal bathhouse, Without the Banya We Would Perish provides a unique perspective on the history of the Russian people.
