This book is a guide for leaders seeking to build a community, to strengthen the community they already have, or who may not think of themselves as community leaders but who are envisioning a group they hope to create. These communities can be formal, with official memberships and administrations, or informal, tied by shared values and commitments. Some people think communities happen by accident, or have to emerge organically, but Charles Vogl emphasizes that there are solid, time-honored principles for consciously building them. Drawing on 3,000 years of tradition, Vogl lays out seven enduring principles that every community of every kind must master to be effective and supportive. He describes each principle´s purpose and provides extensive hands-on tools for implementing them. He also helps leaders ensure that their communities remain healthy and life-affirming and not degenerate into rigid cults. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Dheere.

The earliest history of remote ages describes methods employed in combating disease, and down through all the centuries the struggle against infection has been going on. The science of health as applied in recent years reveals wonderful progress in the avoidance of disease, and in the control of the violent epidemics by which in the past nations were almost exterminated. Modern methods of hygiene and sanitation as applied to public health have robbed smallpox and diphtheria of their death-dealing power; cholera and yellow fever have been forced to retreat before the victorious hosts of applied medical science; tuberculosis, the greatest foe of human life, is slowly but surely receding before the determined efforts of modern preventive medicine. By nature man is endowed with resistive power sufficient to ward off most forms of disease, provided he keeps his health at a normal standard by right living. If, however, he allows his health to become impaired by reason of overwork, bad habits, wilful exposure to contagion or unhealthful surroundings, he readily falls a prey to disease. The author of Principles of Public Health has here set forth the general rules of life by the observance of which every adult and every child not only can do much to preserve his own health but also can prove himself a prominent factor in raising the standard of public health. A campaign of education is demanded to arrest the enormous loss of life which is carrying so many to untimely graves, and the instruction given in this volume will be of inestimable value in teaching people how to avoid avoidable disease. The author has not attempted to deal with all the diseases that may be classed as preventable; as the work is intended for use in the public schools, only such diseases are mentioned as it seems fitting to present to school children. To teach our children a proper respect for their own health and for the community welfare is to fit them for the best citizenship. E. A. Pierce, M. D.
The aim of this book is to unlock the power of the freeware R language to advanced university students and researchers dealing with whole-rock geochemistry of (meta-) igneous rocks. The first part covers data input/output, calculation of commonly used indexes and plotting in R. The core of the book then focusses on the presentation and practical implementations of modelling techniques used for fingerprinting processes such as partial melting, fractional crystallization, binary mixing or AFC using major-, trace-element and radiogenic isotope data. The reader will be given a firm theoretical basis for forward/reverse modelling, followed by exercises dealing with typical problems likely to be encountered in real life, and their solutions using R. The concluding sections demonstrate, using practical examples, how a researcher can proceed in developing a realistic model simulating natural systems. The appendices outline the fundamentals of the R language and provide a quick introduction to the open-source R-package GCDkit for interpretation of whole-rock geochemical data from igneous and metamorphic rocks. Vojt?ch Janouek (*1968) is associate professor at the Charles University in Prague, employed in the radiogenic isotopes laboratory of the Czech Geological Survey. He received a MSci from the Charles University and a PhD in geochemistry from the University of Glasgow. His research focusses on igneous geochemistry, geochronology and numerical modelling as well as computing in geosciences. He is editor-in-chief of open-access Journal of Geosciences . Jean-François Moyen is professor at the University of Saint-Etienne, France. He obtained a PhD in petrology and geochemistry at the University of Clermont-Ferrand (France), and was a post-doc and then lecturer in Stellenbosch, South Africa (2003-2009). His research interests include geochemical modelling, igneous petrology and geochemistry. Hervé Martin is Professor at the University Blaise Pascal in Clermont-Ferrand, France, where he works in the Laboratoire Magmas et Volcans. The research that he develops consists in modeling the geochemical behaviour of major and trace elements in order to constrain the petrogenesis of the Earths primitive continental crust, as well as magma genesis in modern subduction zones. Vojt?ch Erban is working at the Radiogenic Isotopes Laboratory of the Czech Geological Survey in Prague. His professional interests comprise geochemistry, isotope analytics and geochemical modelling. Colin Farrow is an IT specialist and former member of the Department of Geology & Applied Geology, University of Glasgow with an interest in developing software for geological data analysis.
