It's Regents time once again and the pressure to perform is on! However, don't sweat it-we're here to help! Generally speaking, the Regents choose the same types of questions year after year. This affords one the ability to concentrate on the topics that the Regents tests for in Global History, and cut out the less tested areas. This is what this review attempts to do. In this review, you will be provided a brief overview of Global History with integrated (actual) Regents questions from the last five years. This gives you, the student, a chance to study the material and immediately follow up with Regent's questions to ensure that you know what you have already studied. Also, a Regent has been inserted at the end which further gives you an opportunity to test your knowledge of the material. So go ahead and try it!

Depression is a widespread condition affecting approximately 7.5 million parents in the U.S. each year and may be putting at least 15 million children at risk for adverse health outcomes. Based on evidentiary studies, major depression in either parent can interfere with parenting quality and increase the risk of children developing mental, behavioral and social problems. Depression in Parents, Parenting, and Children highlights disparities in the prevalence, identification, treatment, and prevention of parental depression among different sociodemographic populations. It also outlines strategies for effective intervention and identifies the need for a more interdisciplinary approach that takes biological, psychological, behavioral, interpersonal, and social contexts into consideration. A major challenge to the effective management of parental depression is developing a treatment and prevention strategy that can be introduced within a two-generation framework, conducive for parents and their children. Thus far, both the federal and state response to the problem has been fragmented, poorly funded, and lacking proper oversight. This study examines options for widespread implementation of best practices as well as strategies that can be effective in diverse service settings for diverse populations of children and their families. The delivery of adequate screening and successful detection and treatment of a depressive illness and prevention of its effects on parenting and the health of children is a formidable challenge to modern health care systems. This study offers seven solid recommendations designed to increase awareness about and remove barriers to care for both the depressed adult and prevention of effects in the child. The report will be of particular interest to federal health officers, mental and behavioral health providers in diverse parts of health care delivery systems, health policy staff, state legislators, and the general public.

NOMINATED FOR THE MANFRED S. GUTTMACHER AWARD BY THE AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION Although advances in clinical/forensic theory and technology continue to elucidate our understanding of deception analysis, the current state of the art is crude in most applications. With new interviewing techniques, psychological tests and instruments, Detecting Malingering and Deception: Forensic Distortion Analysis, Second Edition takes the reader far beyond the basic differentiation between malingering versus defensiveness as the two modes of distortion. What's new in this edition? Virtually every chapter has been updated with new studies and investigations from the past decade. The latest information is provided in such areas as post-traumatic stress disorder, amnesia, competency, criminal responsibility, and risk assessment. Several new chapters address not only the development of deceptive behavior in children, adolescents, and the elderly, but even in nonhumans. This authoritative contribution offers the reader specific steps to conduct a meaningful and contemporary deception analysis. Moreover, acknowledging the numerous methods and professions involved, it suggests a framework for integrating data from multiple sources. Nominated for the Guttmacher Award by the American Psychiatric Association, Detecting Malingering and Deception: Forensic Distortion Analysis is the single most comprehensive and thorough rendering of distortion analysis to date.
With ever-advancing scientific understanding and technological capabilities, humanity stands on the brink of the potential next stage of evolution: evolution engineered by us. Nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive science offer the possibility to enhance human performance, lengthen life-span and reshape our inherited physical, cognitive and emotional identities. But with this promise come huge risks, complex choices and fundamental ethical questions: about evolution; about what it is to be human; and about control over, and the distribution of benefits from, new technology. Written by a range of experts in science, technology, bioethics and social science, Unnatural Selection examines the range of technological innovations offering lives that purport to be longer, stronger, smarter and happier, and asks whether their introduction is likely to lead to more fulfilled individuals and a fairer world. The breadth of approaches and perspectives make important reading for anyone who cares about the implications of humanity engineering its own evolution.

"Teaching Notes to Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies" is the companion to "Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies," which presents six cases developed by the Project on Faculty Appointments at Harvard Graduate School of Education. These teaching notes provide detailed suggestions and strategies for leading an effective classroom or workshop discussion about each of Casebook I's six case studies, all of which explore and analyze efforts to bring about institutional change. The case studies address the following issues: How can an institution move forward and make progress in areas that have stymied its leaders for years? How can an academic administrator effect positive change on several fronts at once while tackling head-on some of the most contentious and complex issues in faculty employment? How can an institution define and evaluate faculty productivity while taking into account disciplinary distinctions and diverse faculty interests and assignments? How can a college alter its faculty employment policies during a time of institutional transformation, while simultaneously responding to the distinct needs of multiple campus constituencies? What is the nature of transformative leadership, and what lessons can be learned from educational leaders about initiating, managing, and institutionalizing change? How can an institution respond to external concerns regarding its employment policies while maintaining control of a process with substantive, procedural, and political dimensions? The notes can be used in a variety of teaching settings such as executive education programs and professional development institutions, graduate courses in higher education administration, in-service workshops, and campus-based planning sessions. "Teaching Notes to Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies" has two companion volumes: "Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies "and" Using Cases in Higher Education: A Guide for Faculty and Administrators." "Using Cases in Higher Education: A Guide for Faculty and Administrators" offers general advice concerning using case studies as pedagogical tools, and "Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies" presents six case studies that highlight a particular challenge regarding faculty employment.

London 1696: Der berühmte Mathematiker, Physiker und Astronom Sir Isaac Newton erhält die Aufsicht über die königliche Münzanstalt. Die neue Aufgabe lässt sich nicht gut an: In London wimmelt es von Geldfälschern. Sein Gehilfe Ellis beschäftigt sich mehr mit Newtons schöner Nichte als mit seiner Arbeit. Als jedoch auch noch eine Mordserie im Tower Angst und Schrecken verbreitet, nimmt Newton mit wissenschaftlichem Spürsinn die Verfolgung der Mörder auf. «Newtons Schatten» ist ein packender Kriminalfall aus der Feder von Englands brillantem Thriller-Autor, ein atmosphärisch dicht erzählter, ebenso amüsanter wie spannender historischer Roman. «Holmes & Watson heißen hier Newton & Ellis.» (Die Zeit) «Ein glänzender, erfindungsreicher Thriller-Autor.» (Salman Rushdie) «Philip Kerr hat aus historischen Ereignissen und den Erkenntnissen der modernen Wissenschaft einen aufregenden und dichten Plot gewoben, der zwar im 17. Jahrhundert spielt, aber durchaus Parallelen zu unserer Zeit aufweist.» (NDR) «‹Newtons Schatten› ist ein biographischer Roman mit vielen historischen Details – und ein packender Krimi.» (Berliner Morgenpost)
