People with chronic illnesses often live in the community for many years while the illness becomes progressively more debilitating. Little is known about how they continue to live personally meaningful lives. This book describes a study that employed qualitative research methods and the Occupational Performance Model (Australia) to investigate how people with Parkinsons disease and their partners continue to actively participate as members of their social community. Loss of control over choice and manner of engagement in roles was a significant element of the findings. Sense of self and sense of social fit were identified as major elements that informed participants perceptions of control. The findings support the notion that people with chronic illness are active and knowledgeable participants in health care. Moreover, they demonstrate that people with chronic illness work in tandem with significant role partners to constantly maintain valued partnerships through occupational role performance as the disease progresses. This book is intended for health professionals, health educators, researchers, and people with chronic disability."
This book is not about history, theory or theology. It is about bringing life to your dead dream of becoming a first-class personality in life, although you have a third class degree. Unknown to you, while on campus, the main reason why you really desired to graduate with a first class was not just for your friends to respect you or for your family members to be happy for having a first class graduate in the family. Much more than these, hidden somewhere within your heart, is a secret aspiration to want to live a first class life in the future. That dream should not now be aborted simply because you did not make a first class in school. Armed with this understanding, you will agree that graduating with a first class in school is only a means to an end and not the end in itself. The end in itself is living a first class life. The good news is that there are so many means to this end, and this book reveals those means. Know this for sure; nothing catches God unawares. Whatever happens, He knows about it. Sad as it may sound, God knew afore-hand that you may not fare better than you did, and He is prepared ahead of time to help you. He is not disappointed in you. God looks at things differently than man does. This is because man is easily impressed by the wrong things in life, neglecting the things that matters. Men may write you off, but God won't: It is not in His nature: Adam and eve failed God's exam in the Garden of Eden and could have easily been written off by God. However, the whole Bible is a record of God's plan and effort to reverse that failure; that is God. He looks beyond the present into the future. Succeeding in school is not the same as succeeding in life; likewise, failing out of school does not necessarily mean you have failed in life. A pass mark in the first does not guarantee a pass mark in the other, and a failure in the first does not guarantee a failure in the other. You may be passing out with a third-class result now, but this does not make you a third-class material. Every student is a first-class material, only that the field in which they excel differ. Those who excel in academic work are easily noticed and awarded first-class earlier than others. But this is not to say others cannot excel in other fields.
The second edition of this book was written to clean up some of the poorly worded statements in the first edition and to show important Bible verses rather than just refer to them.This book, itself, has been written to share what I discovered during a unique experience in late 1989 and early 1990. While that experience was not very pleasant, the discoveries that I made have more than made up for any of those anxieties which I felt. After having been a Christian for a little over twenty-two years, I suddenly and without warning lost my job. Since at that time I had been faithful in the Lord's work for over fifteen years plus had also done very well within my profession, being released from my employment did not seem logical. Therefore, from the very beginning, I acknowledged my predicament as having come from the Lord.In all, I was out of work for almost five months from the end of November in 1989 until the middle of the following April. As I faced each day, I had a very sincere desire to understand what the Lord wanted me to do and also to determine if He was trying to show or teach me something special. I did not realize it at the time, but He was about to reveal to me what He truly desires from each of us. For a number of years, I had not been completely clear about whether He simply wanted us to be very good people, whether He just wanted our money, or just exactly what He wanted. I must point out, though, that my confusion was not related to my faith in Christ or to my dependence upon His finished work at Calvary. Instead, it was related to how a devoted Christian should go about this thing of Christian service.What the Lord revealed to me through my ordeal of unemployment may not seem so earth shattering to many. In fact, I would have to say that His special revelation was probably what we would all suspect anyway. Yet many Christian people, in my opinion, have gotten this thing of Christian service all turned around. God does want us to work on His behalf. However, He does not want that until first we have given Him our heart, our whole heart. Lukewarm Christianity, which is so commonplace in our time, is not honoring or pleasing to Him. But merely working hard, without first giving Him the complete love and devotion that He wants and deserves, is not either. Among the topics discussed in this book are the devil's use of deception and distraction, accepting God's provision for salvation, seeing Satan at work in church, what the Lord wants from each of us, and the three Bible-based principles for right living.This book is not very complicated and hopefully should not be difficult to read. In writing it, my desire has not been to eliminate the cart, but rather to ensure that we as Christians are not getting the cart before the horse. Chapters two and three present God's simple Plan of Salvation. After that, the rest of the book is a presentation of the simple teachings of Matthews 22:37-39, Matthew 6:33, and Romans 14:10-13. My desire is that the reader will find this material easy to understand and accept and that it will be beneficial to him or her in their everyday walk.
'...the Dictionary is a very useful reference for those who conduct research in heterodox political economics. It is also strongly recommended for those who want to investigate how historical events shape an economist's view ...[the] editors and the publisher of this Dictionary should be congratulated on their foresight in publishing this book.' - Tony Fu-Lai Yu, Australian Economic History Review 'This is a practical and interesting guide to the origins, philosophies, and writings of some 100 economists and social scientists.... this reference work will be a valuable guide to the diversity and richness of opinion that can make economics more relevant and appealing.... it offers a useful guide to the potential diversity of modern economic thought; it not only provides useful information, it is entertaining to read.' - Timothy E. Sullivan, American Reference Books Annual 2002 Acclaim for the first edition: '...this book should be in your library.' - Malcolm Rutherford, Journal of Economic Issues '...this is a clearly written, well-organized biographical dictionary. Highly recommended to all members of the economics profession, especially those whose primary interest lies in research or the history of economic thought.' - Oleg Zinam, American Reference Books Annual This is a thoroughly updated and revised edition of the first, and definitive, biographical dictionary of dissenting economists. It is an extensive and authoritative guide to economists both past and present, providing biographical, bibliographical and critical information on over 100 economists working in the non-neoclassical traditions broadly defined. It includes entries on, amongst others, radical economists, Marxists, post-Keynesians, behaviourists, Kaleckians and institutionalists. The book demonstrates the extent and richness of the radical heterodox tradition in economics. This second edition continues to mark a departure from what is usually found in a biographical dictionary for, in addition to providing standard biographical information, living economists have themselves been asked to state their principal contributions to economics, supplemented by a list of their leading books and articles. A Biographical Dictionary of Dissenting Economists, Second Edition will continue to be an essential reference source for instructors, researchers and students of economics, its development and history.
Here, in plain language, is the definitive guide for taking control of your life and imbuing it with greater meaning and productivity. Constructive Living is an action-based way of looking at the world that combines good, old-fashioned straight talk and the celebrated Japanese psychotherapies Morita and Naikan. David Reynolds, the father of this brilliantly simple and effective therapy, shows us how to live thoughtfully and economically, to regard our actions as if they were divine rituals, and to perform them with the utmost care. He contends that contentment is achieved, not bestowed--attaining peace and satisfaction takes daily practice and learning. With user-friendly anecdotes, practical exercises, and a sense of humor, he refreshes the experienced student and takes the novice to the beginning, laying out the essence of Constructive Living.
