What is a Reverse Mortgage? Is it more than a loan program for those who are "house-rich, but cash poor"? How does the "non-recourse feature" protect homeowners and their heirs? Can the available line-of-credit and its growth rate be used for insurance and financial planning purposes? This book answers these questions and many more in a user-friendly way, and may be the most comprehensive educational tool available on the New Reverse Mortgage. It should be read by baby boomers, retirees, older adults with mortgages, heirs, financial planners, housing counselors, HECM counselors, Realtors, brokers, financial journalists, mortgage professionals, estate planners, and of course all homeowners who want greater assurance that they can comfortably grow older in their own homes.

What if you could charge a battery while discharging it to a load source? In Reverse Engineering of the Deep-Cycle Automotive Battery, Frank Earl argues that it is possible. Taking a different approach than he did in his first book—Miracle Auto Battery—he explains how it can be done. He also evaluates what others, including Richard A. Perez, author of The Complete Battery Book, have said about charging batteries. He explores critical topics, such as • how fixation on the chemical structure of the battery has overshadow the fact that its mechanical structure is just as important as its chemical structure when it comes to new battery technology. • what role a battery’s mechanical structure plays in its cycling processes; • why it is possible to charge a deep-cycle automotive battery even as it is powering a vehicle; and • what role reverse engineering plays in improving battery life. Imagine how different the world would be if we could switch between the charging and discharging process of the deep-cycle automotive battery without having to stop one cycling process to start the other—and discover how to make it a reality.

Understanding the Regulation of “Reverse Cholesterol Transport ”at Molecular Level. An Interactive Comprehensive Appraisal. Large population studies conclusively demonstrated that plasma levels of high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) as well as its major apolipoprotein constituent apolipoprotein A-I (apoA-I) are inversely associated with the risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. However, within these study populations there is still a substantial number of patients that experience complications of cardiovascular disease despite considerably high HDL-C plasma levels, and vice versa there are individuals with low plasma HDL-C levels that do not develop clinically significant atherosclerosis. Such observations lead to the investigation how HDL particles confer protection against atherosclerosis. One of the earliest recognized functions of HDL is that it promotes cholesterol efflux from macrophage foam cells, which constitute the hallmark cell type of atherosclerotic lesions. Importantly, cholesterol efflux from foam cells can revert this phenotype leading to macrophage regress from lesions and a subsequent reduction in lesion burden. Subsequently, the cholesterol effluxed from foam cells towards HDL should ideally be irreversibly eliminated from the body to prevent re-uptake into the vessel wall. HDL-mediated cholesterol efflux therefore constitutes a key step not only for preventing lesion progression but also for clinical efforts to induce regression of preexisting atherosclerotic plaques. This goal is achieved by a complex multistep process that has been coined Reverse Cholesterol Transport (RCT). The recent introduction of a surrogate method aiming at determining specifically RCT from the macrophage compartment has facilitated research on the different components and pathways relevant for RCT. An attempt has been made in this Booklet to provide a comprehensive overview of studies carried out on macrophage specific RCT including a quick reference guide of available data and summarize the knowledge and insights gained on the Regulation of the RCT Pathway. Further, a discussion of methodological issues as well as of the respective relevance of specific pathways for RCT is also included. …Dr. H. K. Saboowala. M.B.(Bom) .M.R.S.H.(London)

In Understanding Urban Politics: Institutions, Representation, and Policies, Timothy B. Krebs and Arnold Fleischmann introduce a framework that focuses on the role of institutions in establishing the political "rules of the game," the representativeness of city government, the influence of participation in local democracy, and how each of these features influences the adoption and implementation of public policies. Part 1 lays the groundwork for the rest of the book by exploring the many meanings of "urban," analyzing what local governments do, and providing a history of American urban development. Part 2 examines the organizations and procedures that are central to urban politics and policy making: intergovernmental relations, local legislatures, and the local executive branch. Part 3 looks at elections and voting, local campaigns, and non-voting forms of participation. The four chapters in Part 4 focus on the policy process and the delivery of local services, local government finances, "Building the City" (economic development, land use, and housing), and policies affecting the quality of life (public safety, the environment, "morality" issues, and urban amenities). Krebs and Fleischmann bolster students' learning and skills with guiding questions at the start of each chapter, which ends with key terms, a summary, discussion questions, and research exercises. The appendix and website aid these efforts, as does a website for instructors.

Comprised of illustrative clinical cases, this unique pocket guide presents descriptions of patients who have symptoms, physical signs or laboratory abnormalities that they believe are due to disorders of the endocrine system (hormone secreting glands and overall metabolism) but which are not, or probably are not, due to an endocrine disorder. These are common situations in the clinical practice of endocrinology. Each chapter includes clinical cases illustrating differing presentations and outcomes, and each individual case description is followed by a discussion that includes the differential diagnosis of these symptoms, signs and/or lab abnormalities and why they are not likely due to endocrine disease or, alternatively, why and how a deeper exploration for endocrine disorders might be needed. In all cases, an emphasis is placed on listening to the patient and providing a respectful and compassionate response and approach to evaluation and management of the proposed disorder. Discussions are referenced whenever reference material is available, and evidence-based clinical practice guidelines are presented whenever applicable. Topics discussed include chronic and adrenal fatigue, obesity, anxiety and depression, sweating and flushing, alcohol- and opioid-induced symptoms, low testosterone, pseudo-hypoglycemia and pseudo-Cushing's syndrome, among others. Clinical endocrinologists, primary care physicians and related allied medical professionals will find Management of Patients with Pseudo-Endocrine Disorders a valuable resource in their clinical practice with these common but often challenging patients.

Gods ways are often unusual, even paradoxical, but they are His ways. The challenge for us lies in the fact that His thoughts are not our thoughts, neither are His ways our ways. This means that each one must be spiritually re-educated; for to the natural man, the things of God are foolishness. Therefore, we all must go through the school of the Holy Spirit to have our lives transformed by the renewing of our minds. Without this process, we will not be able to prove what is good and acceptable to God; neither will we truly know Him. This book When Reverse is Forward holds forth many spiritual lessons that will help the reader understand the often-mysterious ways of God. Sometimes, God acts in strange and in seemingly contradictory ways; but all His works have the hallmark of wisdom stamped upon them. The contents of this book will help believers to understand some of them.

The instant New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller A groundbreaking plan to prevent and reverse Alzheimer’s Disease that fundamentally changes how we understand cognitive decline. Everyone knows someone who has survived cancer, but until now no one knows anyone who has survived Alzheimer's Disease. In this paradigm shifting book, Dale Bredesen, MD, offers real hope to anyone looking to prevent and even reverse Alzheimer's Disease and cognitive decline. Revealing that AD is not one condition, as it is currently treated, but three, The End of Alzheimer’s outlines 36 metabolic factors (micronutrients, hormone levels, sleep) that can trigger "downsizing" in the brain. The protocol shows us how to rebalance these factors using lifestyle modifications like taking B12, eliminating gluten, or improving oral hygiene. The results are impressive. Of the first ten patients on the protocol, nine displayed significant improvement with 3-6 months; since then the protocol has yielded similar results with hundreds more. Now, The End of Alzheimer’s brings new hope to a broad audience of patients, caregivers, physicians, and treatment centers with a fascinating look inside the science and a complete step-by-step plan that fundamentally changes how we treat and even think about AD.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a devastating neurodegenerative disorder with a progressive and fatal course, with no known medical therapies that can reverse the disease or halt its progression. Palliative care is the mainstay of disease management, aimed at maximizing Quality Of Life (QOL) for the patient and caregiver. Clinicians caring for patients with ALS need to understand complex psychological issues in the patient and caregiver, including depression, anxiety, hopelessness, and wish for hastened death (physician-assisted suicide). They also need to confront the psychological implications of rapidly advancing genetic research, the impact of cognitive and behavioural dysfunction in a sizable minority of ALS patients, and caregiver burnout. Healthcare providers can optimize care by better understanding not only these factors, but by learning how to facilitate their management with problem-solving, coping techniques, and with psychologically-based approaches such as mindfulness and other non-pharmacological approaches aimed at maximizing QOL. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: Understanding and Optimizing Quality of Life and Psychological Well-Being provides a detailed review and evaluation of ALS, presented in a comprehensive and integrated fashion. The book achieves this through detailed and up-to-date information about the current state of knowledge in this field. It also offers new insights regarding future directions for research. This book will provide clinicians with a comprehensive description of the psychological aspects of ALS and their management, and incorporates chapters written by recognized scholars in their respective fields.

Abstract: Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) has been classically considered a progressive disease of the heart muscle that inexorably progresses towards refractory heart failure, ventricular arrhythmias and heart transplant. However, the prognosis of DCM has significantly improved in the past few years, mostly as the result of successful therapy-induced reverse remodeling. Reverse remodeling is a complex process that involves not only the left ventricle, but also many other cardiac structures and it is now recognized both as a measure of therapeutic effectiveness and as an important prognostic tool. Nevertheless, several aspects of reverse remodeling remain unclear, including the best timing for its quantification, its predictors and its interaction with individual genetic backgrounds. In this review, we summarize our current understanding of reverse remodeling in patients with DCM and provide practical recommendations for the clinical management of this challenging patient population.

• New York Times bestseller • The 100 most substantive solutions to reverse global warming, based on meticulous research by leading scientists and policymakers around the world “At this point in time, the Drawdown book is exactly what is needed; a credible, conservative solution-by-solution narrative that we can do it. Reading it is an effective inoculation against the widespread perception of doom that humanity cannot and will not solve the climate crisis. Reported by-effects include increased determination and a sense of grounded hope.” —Per Espen Stoknes, Author, What We Think About When We Try Not To Think About Global Warming “There’s been no real way for ordinary people to get an understanding of what they can do and what impact it can have. There remains no single, comprehensive, reliable compendium of carbon-reduction solutions across sectors. At least until now. . . . The public is hungry for this kind of practical wisdom.” —David Roberts, Vox “This is the ideal environmental sciences textbook—only it is too interesting and inspiring to be called a textbook.” —Peter Kareiva, Director of the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, UCLA In the face of widespread fear and apathy, an international coalition of researchers, professionals, and scientists have come together to offer a set of realistic and bold solutions to climate change. One hundred techniques and practices are described here—some are well known; some you may have never heard of. They range from clean energy to educating girls in lower-income countries to land use practices that pull carbon out of the air. The solutions exist, are economically viable, and communities throughout the world are currently enacting them with skill and determination. If deployed collectively on a global scale over the next thirty years, they represent a credible path forward, not just to slow the earth’s warming but to reach drawdown, that point in time when greenhouse gases in the atmosphere peak and begin to decline. These measures promise cascading benefits to human health, security, prosperity, and well-being—giving us every reason to see this planetary crisis as an opportunity to create a just and livable world.

Reverse Hypothesis Machine Learning

This book introduces a paradigm of reverse hypothesis machines (RHM), focusing on knowledge innovation and machine learning. Knowledge- acquisition -based learning is constrained by large volumes of data and is time consuming. Hence Knowledge innovation based learning is the need of time. Since under-learning results in cognitive inabilities and over-learning compromises freedom, there is need for optimal machine learning. All existing learning techniques rely on mapping input and output and establishing mathematical relationships between them. Though methods change the paradigm remains the same—the forward hypothesis machine paradigm, which tries to minimize uncertainty. The RHM, on the other hand, makes use of uncertainty for creative learning. The approach uses limited data to help identify new and surprising solutions. It focuses on improving learnability, unlike traditional approaches, which focus on accuracy. The book is useful as a reference book for machine learning researchers and professionals as well as machine intelligence enthusiasts. It can also used by practitioners to develop new machine learning applications to solve problems that require creativity.
