For most people drawing up a will, making sure their inheritance is secure for their spouse, children, grandchildren, or other family members is a top priority. And though they may think they're taking care of their loved ones' future with the traditional planning a will offers, the reality is that down the line their designated heirs may never see a dime. As attorney and estate-planning expert Armond Budish explains in Why Wills Won't Work, good estate planning in the twenty-first century requires more than the old "one size fits all" approach of filling out a few legal documents. In this book, he illustrates his customized SAFE method—the only solution that will Safeguard Assets for your Family Exclusively. Beginning with an assessment quiz that helps readers determine their particular needs, risks, and goals, along with the options available, Why Wills Won't Work addresses: - how to protect a child's inheritance in a divorce; - the steps to take now to avoid death taxes later; - how to safeguard an inheritance for grandchildren; - how to keep probate court, creditors, and potential lawsuits from depleting an inheritance; - how to plan in advance for a disabled child or one who can't manage money; and - what documents you really need, and how to choose a lawyer. Easy to follow and reader-friendly, with illuminating real-life stories throughout, Why Wills Won't Work is the essential guide for readers who want to be sure now that their family's future inheritance is airtight.

AN INVITATION TO HEALTH, Twelfth Edition has been a best-selling personal health text for many years, largely due to its ability both to introduce the topics of health and wellness and also to inspire students to put the facts of what makes good health and wellness into practice. The unique approach of Dianne Hales's text revolves around the student focus (i.e. examples students can relate to, contemporary coverage, visual appeal, testing preparation). This text is comprehensive in its coverage and includes the latest research and data on topics students care about, from personal relationships, to eating habits and understanding health risks. Because changing for life is a major theme of this edition, a new "Your Life Coach" section presents practical information on how to make healthful changes. To enhance the critical thinking aspect, case studies have been added in each chapter that will present a personal issue involving making a healthy choice. Also, "You Decide" boxes in each chapter ask a controversial question for student reflection, such as same-sex marriage and legalization of marijuana. They are also linked to Personal Response System "clicker" content and a new online journal. Additionally, with this updated Twelfth Edition, there is the new HealthNow(tm) Online assessment and learning tool, including pre- and post-tests, a personalized behavior change plan, and activities to add enjoyment to learning and allow students to explore, experience, and better understand the benefits of healthy living. We also now offer Pedometers, over 500 PowerPoint slides, new ABC video clips, and much more. The Twelfth Edition continues to offer the same great content, features, and support materials, and now is taking it even further by emphasizing the importance of behavior change and developing life skills.

The Promise of Happiness is a provocative cultural critique of the imperative to be happy. It asks what follows when we make our desires and even our own happiness conditional on the happiness of others: “I just want you to be happy”; “I’m happy if you’re happy.” Combining philosophy and feminist cultural studies, Sara Ahmed reveals the affective and moral work performed by the “happiness duty,” the expectation that we will be made happy by taking part in that which is deemed good, and that by being happy ourselves, we will make others happy. Ahmed maintains that happiness is a promise that directs us toward certain life choices and away from others. Happiness is promised to those willing to live their lives in the right way. Ahmed draws on the intellectual history of happiness, from classical accounts of ethics as the good life, through seventeenth-century writings on affect and the passions, eighteenth-century debates on virtue and education, and nineteenth-century utilitarianism. She engages with feminist, antiracist, and queer critics who have shown how happiness is used to justify social oppression, and how challenging oppression causes unhappiness. Reading novels and films including Mrs. Dalloway, The Well of Loneliness, Bend It Like Beckham, and Children of Men, Ahmed considers the plight of the figures who challenge and are challenged by the attribution of happiness to particular objects or social ideals: the feminist killjoy, the unhappy queer, the angry black woman, and the melancholic migrant. Through her readings she raises critical questions about the moral order imposed by the injunction to be happy.

Transplantation is a medically successful and cost-effective way to treat people whose organs have failed--but not enough organs are available to meet demand. Ethics and the Acquisition of Organs is concerned with the major ethical problems raised by policies for acquiring organs. The main topics are the rights of the dead, the role of the family, opt in and opt out systems, the conscription of organs, living organ donation from adults and children, directed donation and priority for donors, and the sale of organs. In this ground-breaking work, T. M. Wilkinson uses concepts from moral and political theory such as autonomy, rights, posthumous interests, justice, and well-being, in a context informed by the clinical, legal, and policy aspects of transplantation. The result is a rigorous philosophical exploration of real problems and options. He argues that the ethics of acquiring organs for transplantation is not only of great intellectual interest, but also of practical importance. As such, this book will be of profit not only to students and academics who work in applied ethics and bioethics, but also to the lawyers, policy-makers, clinicians, and lobby groups interested in transplantation.

Few reference works in philosophy have articles on hope. Few also are systematic or large-scale philosophical studies of hope. Hope is admitted to be important in people's lives, but as a topic for study, hope has largely been left to psychologists and theologians. For the most part philosophers treat hope en passant. My aim is to outline a general theory of hope, to explore its structure, forms, goals, reasonableness, and implications, and to trace the implications of such a theory for atheism or theism. What has been written is quite disparate. Some see hope in an individualistic, often existential, way, and some in a social and political way. Hope is proposed by some as essentially atheistic, and by others as incomprehensible outside of one or another kind of theism. Is it possible to think consistently and at the same time comprehensively about the phenomenon of human hoping? Or is it several phenomena? How could there be such diverse understandings of so central a human experience? On what rational basis could people differ over whether hope is linked to God? What I offer here is a systematic analysis, but one worked out in dialogue with Ernst Bloch, Immanuel Kant, and Gabriel Marcel. Ernst Bloch of course was a Marxist and officially an atheist, Gabriel Marcel a Christian theist, and Immanuel Kant was a theist, but not in a conventional way.

Every year, millions of Americans transfer their finances to their children or other family members because they reach a point at which they can no longer manage them alone. For those who are about to start managing the finances of their parents, it is important to know exactly how to protect their assets, manage their taxes, and live up to their wishes. This book has been written to do just that, providing a comprehensive walkthrough of what you can expect and how to successfully handle your parents finances. To start, you must learn the basics of managing money that is not your own. You will be provided with a step-by-step chapter on how to keep track of funds, maintain the same accounting methods your parents have used for decades, and keep everything organized and separate from your own. You will learn how to evaluate sources of income including how to receive and manage Social Security, 401(k), and other retirement plans as payments are made. Additionally, you will learn how to balance their expenses, including a budgeting sheet to help you maintain the same level of expense they expect. You will learn how to budget accordingly, depending on where your parents are living and what their medical expenses might be. A chapter on insurance and medical coverage is included to help you understand how much money you can expect to set aside for these expenses and how much should be covered by programs such as Medicaid. Learn how to maintain housing for your parents as well, whether they are in assisted living or staying with you. A guide on how to talk to your parents about fraud and keep them away from potentially dangerous opportunities will make it easier for you to keep a handle on their finances without taking away their freedom. Dozens of men and women who have gone through this same situation, and also professional finance managers, have added their expertise to this book, providing firsthand accounts of how they were able to manage their own parents accounts and what you can expect. You will learn the difference in tax laws for the retired and what you will be required and not required to pay as a result of their age. It can be daunting when you first take control of your parents finances, but with this book in your hands, you should be able to quickly and efficiently take the reins and maintain the quality of life they have grown accustomed to.
