An expose of insurance injustice and a plan for consumers and lawmakers to fight it Over the last two decades, insurance has become less of a safety net and more of a spider's web: sticky and complicated, designed to ensnare as much as to aid. Insurance companies now often try to delay payment of justified claims, deny payment altogether, and defend these actions by forcing claimants to enter litigation. Jay M. Feinman, a legal scholar and insurance expert, explains how these trends developed, how the government ought to fix the system, and what the rest of us can do to protect ourselves. He shows that the denial of valid claims is not occasional or accidental or the fault of a few bad employees. It's the result of an increasing and systematic focus on maximizing profits by major companies such as Allstate and State Farm. Citing dozens of stories of victims who were unfairly denied payment, Feinman explains how people can be more cautious when shopping for policies and what to do when pursuing a disputed claim. He also lays out a plan for the legal reforms needed to prevent future abuses. This exposé will help drive the discussion of this increasingly hot- button issue.

Winner of the Pulitzer prize in 1974 and the culmination of a life's work, The Denial of Death is Ernest Becker's brilliant and impassioned answer to the "why" of human existence. In bold contrast to the predominant Freudian school of thought, Becker tackles the problem of the vital lie -- man's refusal to acknowledge his own mortality. In doing so, he sheds new light on the nature of humanity and issues a call to life and its living that still resonates more than twenty years after its writing.
This volume provides the first rigorous assessment of the research relating to the disclosure of childhood sexual abuse, along with the practical and policy implications of the findings. Leading researchers and practitioners from diverse and international backgrounds offer critical commentary on these previously unpublished findings gathered from both field and laboratory research. Cross-cultural, clinical, and multi-disciplinary perspectives are provided. The goal is to learn more about why children frequently remain silent about their abuse, deny it, or if they do disclose, do so belatedly and incompletely, often recanting their allegations over time. The book opens with a close examination of the existing literature on disclosure and the difficulties in conducting such research. It then examines the individual and contextual factors that determine whether, when, and how childhood sexual abuse is disclosed. This portion reviews how the interview techniques have a profound impact on disclosure patterns. Details of how reluctant children are interviewed are included. The third section examines the broader implications of disclosure for the child, family and peers, and for the suspect. Child Sexual Abuse examines how the interview strategies influence how, when, or if children disclose abuse, by examining both domestic and international data and by analyzing detailed interviews with children. Child Sexual Abuse is for researchers and practitioners from child, forensic, and clinical psychology, social work, and all legal professionals who need to understand this crime.

With scientific research, her own chemistry background, and the traditional diets of our not-so-distant ancestors as her guide, Dee McCaffrey casts new light on an age-old wisdom: Eating foods in their closest-to-natural form is the true path to sustained weight loss and, in fact, the remedy for almost any health problem. We are so far removed from foods in their natural state that we now call them “health foods,” a sad admission that we’ve compromised our health for the sake of convenience. The Science of Skinny aims to create a space for change--to educate and enlighten readers on the value of proper nutrition so that they can find a healthier and more life-affirming relationship with their bodies and the food they eat. Offering serial dieters a healthy and lifelong way to shed pounds--and keep them off-- The Science of Skinny includes: kick-start plans; guidelines for family- and kid-friendly meals; quick and delicious menus and more than 50 recipes; shopping lists and eating-on-the-go tips; easy fitness routines; and more.
The painful and baffling mystery as to why some obviously bright children do not begin talking until long after the ”normal” time is explored in this book through personal experiences and the findings of scientific research. The author’s own experiences as the father of such a child led to the formation of a goup of more than fifty sets of parents of similar children. The anguish and frustration of these prents as they try to cope with children who do not talk and institutions that do not understand them is a remarkable and moving human story. Fortunately, some of these children turn out to have not only normal intelligence but even outstanding abilities, especially in highly analytical fields such as mathematics and computers. These fascinating stories of late-talking children and the remarkable families from which they come are followed by explorations of scientific research that throw light on unusual development patterns.

"The people who say they don't have time to take care of themselves will soon discover they're spending all their time being sick." - Patricia Alexander Intermittent fasting is a phenomenon that is currently one of the world's most popular health and fitness trends. It involves alternating cycles of fasting and eating, instead of eating all hours during the day. It isn't a diet, but rather an eating pattern. It does not include any rules about what foods to eat, but rather when you should eat them. As noted by Time magazine, intermittent fasting is becoming so popular because of one reason - it works. It works whether you are trying to lose weight, or just improve your biomarkers to achieve optimal health. In a nutshell, it is the way we are designed to eat. It allows us to use fat as our primary fuel instead of carbohydrates by adopting the way our ancestors used to eat. Unlike so many diets out there, this is not the latest 'fad diet' portrayed in popular media. Dieting is a multi-billion dollar global industry, and there is not a shred of evidence people are becoming slimmer as a result. In fact, the opposite is true. The percentage of obesity keeps increasing and has now reached epidemic proportions all over the world. Intermittent fasting, however, has proven to be a safe and effective approach that promotes not just fat loss, but actually improves overall health in ways no other lifestyle modification could do. What differentiates intermittent fasting from any other diet is the extreme abundance of high-quality, peer-reviewed research to back up all of its claims and results. It also serves as the way humans were physiologically designed to eat, period. I truly believe this is the most powerful intervention out there if you're struggling with your health, weight, or any chronic disease. In addition, the other benefits it has to offer are nothing short of spectacular. The list of health benefits includes, but are not limited to:1. Massive fat burning and weight loss2. Increased human growth hormone production3. Enhanced brain function4. Insulin sensitivity5. Improvement of beneficial gut bacteria6. Reduction in cancer7. Leptin sensitivity8. Ghrelin hormone normalization (hunger hormone)9. Elimination of sugar cravings10. Reduced oxidative stress11. Increased lifespan and longevity In this book we will go over the many benefits intermittent fasting can bring to you. It is also going to cover the specific ways you can implement this fasting regimen in your life, as well as going over common questions and concerns you might have. The scientific health benefits we go over are very important. A lot of these benefits will seem exaggerated, but this is simply a review of the scientific literature and is not mere opinion on my part.
This is a six-month companion journal for members of the Delay, Don't Deny intermittent fasting community. This community is based on the work of Gin Stephens and her original book: Delay, Don't Deny: Living an Intermittent Fasting Lifestyle. In today's app-based world, some of us are old-school, and we prefer a paper and pencil approach. This journal is a tool for us! The Delay, Don't Deny LIFE Journal is packed with simple yet powerful tools that will allow you to interact with your thoughts and track your results in a way that works for you. You can pick and choose from among the many options for both reflecting and tracking. This LIFE journal includes sections for motivational and reflective entries, such as "Non-Scale Victories" and "Affirmations." There is a section for goal setting, a reflective food journal, and a traditional journal, where you can respond to the original 30 journal prompts from DDD (or create your own unique prompts, based on what is meaningful to you). Interested in tracking your fasting time and/or eating window length? There are a couple of places where you can do that. First, there is a "Fasting Tracker," where you can shade in your daily eating windows and/or fasting periods. You can also take more detailed notes about your daily eating window in the "Weekly Calendar and Planner" section. If you exercise, you can note that in the "Movement Journal." If you use the scale, there is a section to record your daily weight and calculate your weekly average. Then, you can plot it on the weight loss tracking graph. You can create personalized weight loss milestones, and shade in your progress as you reach each one. In addition to (or instead of) tracking progress using the scale, you may want to record your measurements and see how those change over time. Many IFers find that they lose inches before pounds, and measuring is a great way to illustrate this type of progress. There is also a section for you to include progress photos, which are a fantastic way to see just how much your body is changing from month to month. Finally, there is a "Custom" section, which you can use in any way that works for you. This is a place for you to take notes, or create your own user-specific record or reflection pages. Get ready to chart your own path to success over the next six months, using the Delay, Don't Deny LIFE Journal!
