Tools for Learning pedagogical approach ties together learning objectives, Quiz Yourself boxes, and chapter summaries to help summarize key material, identify important topics, and seamlessly test your comprehension as you work through the text. UNIQUE! Concept-statement headings and subheadings, clearly visible throughout the text, transform simple descriptions into key ideas that you should learn in each section of content. Need-to-know information includes only basic anatomy and physiology content to avoid causing confusion. Chapter outlines at the beginning of each chapter provide a brief synopsis of the chapter and act as a guide for you to prioritize topics. Learning objectives appear after main headings to help you concentrate on important information. Chapter summaries illustrate how the topics covered in each chapter support the learning objectives. Quiz Yourself boxes at the end of each major section reinforce information as it is learned, measure mastery of learning objectives, and test your knowledge and comprehension of key topics within the chapter. Glossary, including key terms, pronunciations, definitions, and chapter references, emphasizes and defines essential terminology. Key terms, presented with pronunciations in bold throughout the text, show you what terminology is critical to gaining a solid understanding of anatomy and physiology. Illustrated tables, with illustrations integrated into the rows and columns, bring tables to life and combine the functionality of succinct tabular material with the added visual benefit of illustrated concepts.

Genre: Health & Fitness

Der alte Menschheitstraum von ewiger Jugend und unendlichem Leben scheint der Wirklichkeit näher zu rücken. Vor kurzer Zeit erklärten Forscher der Yale University, dass wir bis zum Jahr 2050 genügend Kenntnisse hätten, um den Tod aufzuhalten. Auf welche Fakten stützt sich diese kühne Behauptung? Und was wäre, wenn diese Forscher Recht behielten? Könnte der Traum vom ewigen Leben nicht zum Alptraum werden? Die Suche nach den Antworten auf diese Fragen führte Mark Benecke nicht nur zu Sportmedizinern, Ernährungsexperten und Entwicklungsbiologen, sondern auch nach Russland und Amerika, wo er mit Wissenschaftskollegen über deren Experimente sprach, das Leben des Menschen zu verlängern. Schon heute gibt es ein großes Repertoire lebensverlängernder Maßnahmen, das die Vorstellungskraft jedes Romanautors sprengen würde. Benecke stellt es anschaulich vor und dringt dabei immer tiefer zu der Frage vor, welchen Sinn der Tod des Menschen hat und wie eng er mit dem Sinn allen Lebens verbunden ist.D en Tod vor Augen, dem Leben auf der Spur: Der Biomediziner Mark Benecke fragte sich, ob Unsterblichkeit ein erstrebenswertes Ziel der Evolution wäre. Sechs Jahre lang suchte er nach Antworten, sprach mit einem Russen, der sich zusammen mit Algen in einen Metallkessel einsperren ließ, und mit acht Bionauten, die zwei Jahre lang isoliert unter einer Glaskuppel lebten. Er untersuchte die Totenkulte verschiedenster Völker - von der Einbalsamierung im alten Ägypten bis zu den Baumbestattungen in Neuguinea. Die Ergebnisse hat er in dem Buch "Der Traum vom Ewigen Leben" (Kindler Verlag, München) zusammengefasst. Darin beleuchtet er, was die Wissenschaft an Rezepten und vermeintlichen Rezepten für die Lebensverlängerung zu bieten hat. Altbekannte Empfehlungen - von Sport bis Vitaminen - gehören ebenso dazu wie Zukunftsmethoden - von Klonen bis Gehirnverpflanzung

Release Date: 2017-09-01
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Leben und lieben in Zeiten der Diktatur: Die Autorin und Journalistin Barbara Demick erzählt bewegende Geschichten von Menschen in Nordkorea, ihrem Alltag, ihren Beziehungen, ihren Ängsten und vor allem den Herausforderungen durch die gnadenlosen Lebensverhältnisse im Schattenreich des "geliebten Führers" Kim Jong Il. Barbara Demick schildert in ihrem bewegenden Buch die Geschichte von Song Hee-suk, einer regimetreuen Vorzeigebürgerin, die zusehen muss, wie ihre Schwiegermutter, ihr Ehemann und ihr Sohn vor Hunger sterben. Sie berichtet von der Ärztin Kim Ji-eun, die verzweifelt, weil sie ihren Patienten nicht helfen kann, da selbst die Voraussetzungen für die einfachste medizinische Versorgung fehlen; sie erzählt von Mi-ran und ihrem Verehrer Jun-sang, einem Liebespaar, das sich nur in der Dunkelheit treffen kann, weil die Beziehung gegen die Parteidoktrin verstößt. Doch wenn sich das verheißene sozialistische Paradies des Führers Kim Jong Il als Hölle auf Erden erweist, bleibt allein die Flucht. Seit den massiven Kriegsdrohungen Nordkoreas gegenüber Südkorea und den USA im Frühjahr 2013 steht das streng abgeschottete Land im Fokus des internationalen Interesses. Die Situation hat sich 2017 durch den öffentlichen verbalen Schlagabtausch zwischen US-Präsident Donald Trump und Kim Jong Un, dem Sohn des verstorbenen Führers Kim Jong Il, noch verschärft. Die langjährige Ostasien-Korrespondentin der "Los Angeles Times" Barbara Demick ist eine exzellente Kennerin der Verhältnisse in der diktatorisch regierten Volksrepublik. In ihrem mit dem Human Rights Book Award ausgezeichneten Buch liefert sie tiefe und verstörende Einblicke in das Alltagsleben Nordkoreas und zeigt uns eine ferne, sehr fremde und nahezu unbekannte Welt. "Ein scharfsinniges, über die Maßen erhellendes Buch über das Alltagsleben in Nordkorea" Jung Chang, Autorin des Weltbestsellers "Wilde Schwäne" "Auf dem deutschsprachigen Buchmarkt kommt wohl nichts näher an den nordkoreanischen Alltag heran als dieses ausgezeichnet geschriebene Buch."
