Pflegeoasen sind Mehrpersonenräume zur Versorgung von Menschen mit schwerer Demenz in der Langzeitpflege. Die Einschätzungen zu diesem neuen Versorgungskonzept sind geteilt. Die einen halten es für eine kostensparende Gruppenversorgung alter und schwer pflegebedürftiger Menschen, die anderen sehen darin eine innovative und bedürfnisgerechte Versorgungsform. Eine sachliche, auf wissenschaftlichern Ergebnissen aufbauende Diskussion, ist erforderlich. Dieses Buch liefert einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Versachlichung der Diskussion und nähert sich der Thematik aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven - u.a. Soziologie, Ethik, Medizin - an.

Special features for this year include a survey of current and future torpedo developments, an in-depth study of the Royal New Zealand Navy, a look at how the Royal Navy is coping after the Strategic Defense and Security Review, plus analyses of significant new warship classes: the Japanese Hyuga class DHH concept, the USNS Spearhead Joint Hish-Speed Vessels, Danish Iver Huitfeldt class frigatees, and German AIP technology as demonstrated in the recent Type 212A submarines.

A Homemade Life

Author: Molly Wizenberg
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
ISBN: 9781416594451
Release Date: 2009-03-03
Genre: Cooking

When Molly Wizenberg's father died of cancer, everyone told her to go easy on herself, to hold off on making any major decisions for a while. But when she tried going back to her apartment in Seattle and returning to graduate school, she knew it wasn't possible to resume life as though nothing had happened. So she went to Paris, a city that held vivid memories of a childhood trip with her father, of early morning walks on the cobbled streets of the Latin Quarter and the taste of her first pain au chocolat. She was supposed to be doing research for her dissertation, but more often, she found herself peering through the windows of chocolate shops, trekking across town to try a new pâtisserie, or tasting cheeses at outdoor markets, until one evening when she sat in the Luxembourg Gardens reading cookbooks until it was too dark to see, she realized that her heart was not in her studies but in the kitchen. At first, it wasn't clear where this epiphany might lead. Like her long letters home describing the details of every meal and market, Molly's blog Orangette started out merely as a pleasant pastime. But it wasn't long before her writing and recipes developed an international following. Every week, devoted readers logged on to find out what Molly was cooking, eating, reading, and thinking, and it seemed she had finally found her passion. But the story wasn't over: one reader in particular, a curly-haired, food-loving composer from New York, found himself enchanted by the redhead in Seattle, and their email correspondence blossomed into a long-distance romance. In A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table, Molly Wizenberg recounts a life with the kitchen at its center. From her mother's pound cake, a staple of summer picnics during her childhood in Oklahoma, to the eggs she cooked for her father during the weeks before his death, food and memories are intimately entwined. You won't be able to decide whether to curl up and sink into the story or to head straight to the market to fill your basket with ingredients for Cider-Glazed Salmon and Pistachio Cake with Honeyed Apricots.
