A FASCINATING EXPOSÉ ON THE CORRUPTION OF WESTERN MEDICINE. "The truth about cures without drugs is suppressed, unless it suits the purpose of the censor to garble it. Whether these cures are effected by chiropractors, Naturopaths, Naprapaths, Osteopaths, Faith Healers, Spiritualists, Herbalists, Christian Scientists, or MDs who use the brains they have, you never read about it in the big newspapers.”—Morris A. Bealle In the 1930’s, Morris A. Bealle, a former city editor of the old Washington Times and Herald, was running a county seat newspaper, in which the local power company bought a large advertisement every week. This account took quite a lot of worry off Bealle’s shoulders when the bills came due. But according to Bealle’s own story, one day the paper took up the cudgels for some of its readers that were being given poor service from the power company, and Bealle received the dressing down of his life from the advertising agency which handled the power company’ s account. They told him that any more such ‘stepping out of line’ would result in the immediate cancellation not only of the advertising contract, but also of the gas company and the telephone company. That’s when Bealle’s eyes were opened to the meaning of a ‘free press’, and he decided to get out of the newspaper business. He used his professional experience to do some deep digging into the freedom-of-the-press situation and came up with several shattering exposes—one of which is this book, The Drug Story, which was first published in 1949. Although never admitted to a major bookstore—it was sold exclusively by mail—it went on to become one of the most important books on health and politics ever to appear in the USA.

Daniel Simon leaves his job as a professor at a Midwestern medical school to work in the pharmaceutical industry because he wants to make a greater and more direct impact in his field. But he soon finds that in his new role, he must contend with petty crooks, fraudsters, and brilliant but money-hungry researchers. There’s also the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which seeks to put a regulatory death to what could be lifesaving antibiotics. Whether he’s working at a large company, small company or biotechnology company, he sees how they make decisions, conduct research, and earn revenue. Sometimes, he gets caught in turf battles and must deal with inflated egos. With a career and family to think about, Daniel works hard to bring new antibiotics to the market, but he becomes increasingly frustrated by the hurdles that must be overcome. He has his work cut out for him in The Drug Makers.

Throughout the world we pop more than 200 billion of these little white pills every year. Aspirin is effective not only against everyday ailments, such as headaches and fever, but also as a preventative treatment for heart attacks, strokes, and even some types of cancers. Add to this its beneficiary role in a host of other conditions from Alzheimer's to gum disease, and you have a medicine of unparalleled importance to humanity, not to mention big business. Yet until 1971 we did not even know how Aspirin worked. In this fascinating and informative book Diarmuid Jeffreys follows the surprising and dramatic story of the drug from its origins in ancient Egypt, through its industrial development at the end of the nineteenth century and its key role in the great flu pandemic of 1918 to its subsequent exploitation by the pharmaceutical conglomerates.

Twenty years after writing Drug Lord, Terrence Poppa decided the information in his book was more important than ever. In an important interview with the Texas Tribune, Poppa explains that ''the Mexico that I wrote about in the book describes the old order of things: Mexico under the PRI. In that sense, the book was out of date, because how drug trafficking operated under the PRI is completely different than how it works today in a new Mexico, under the democratically transformed Mexico...There has been a decoupling of the highest levels of power from drug trafficking now. It's important for people to understand that, so I had to bring the book up to date.''

Teens take drugs for a variety of reasons. Sometimes they simply want to feel different. They might feel emotions they want to change, such as sadness or anxiety. And they might even be bored or feel left out. Yet casual drug use can easily develop into abuse and addiction, whether the drug of choice is legal or illegal. Drug abuse can ruin the lives of users and their friends and family. It can cause harm to a person's body and take control of his or her mind. Drug use also supports an illegal drug supply industry--one that involves criminals and gangs. This frank, clear-eyed, sobering text examines what drugs are, what they can do, and how people can get help. From first use to hardcore addiction, drugs affect not only users but also friends, family, and society. This hard-hitting expos deglamorizes drug abuse and reveals its true toll.

We live in a world where many live by the "what have you done for me lately?" philosophy. Love, care, and concern is based on what a person has done for them, who that person is, or for what they can get out of a situation. We are self-centered in our love as a society. Against this kind of love comes unconditional love. It is the kind of love that expresses itself to everyone, no matter who they are, no matter what they have done, and expects nothing in return. When Jesus Christ walked the earth as the God/man this was the kind of love he exhibited to others. His death on the cross is God's ultimate expression of unconditional love. As we live Christian lives, the call is upon us to practice unconditional love just as God does. This generation desperately needs to experience genuine, unselfish, Godly love. In UNCONDITIONAL, the author chronicles his journey seeking to practice unconditional love, sometimes successfully, sometimes struggling. May his journey inspire the reader to be God's example of His unconditional love.This is a reproduction of a book published before 1923.

I don't know why I began writing, nobody asked me to write and I never considered writing as something I'd just do, but there I was clumsily, slowly but creatively pecking away. Writing down thoughts, ideas, streets, characters, chatter, dialogue and actions that actually made me laugh and or reflect. After some months had passed, I had finished my first complete story, which I never read again. But instead I threw it in a drawer unedited and unread by anyone. I began to write another story, which I eventually finished and again tossed it into another drawer, unedited and unread. Almost right away I wrote a play and again tossed it into another drawer. Talking about your closet writer! I continued to write short stories about events and relationships unplanned or outlined, letting the characters, times and places drive my way through each chronicle while piling story on top of story in my desk drawer. So what was it? Why did I continue to write? Hell, because I got off on it. I wasn't trying to make a name for myself as an "author" or try to become rich, but it was just for the time I spend alone in my writer's closet with not a soul around to tell me what to do or where to go, how things should be done, or the heartache of the world we live in. I have determined that if nobody reads a word, writing is just something I like to do. Now, we've finally come to this, Chronicles of a Nappi Head. ENJOYDo you know the secrets behind your church doors?Tori Braswell is a young and aspiring career woman who fell downon her luck in love. She meets a man who changes her life forever.He is her lover as well as her friend, but the problem is he is also herPastor. The adulterous affair becomes their biggest secret and theirworse nightmare.When a life changing event in the Pastor's family tests his relationshipwith Tori, she decides to move on and meets Clayton Garrison theperfect man. He is handsome, kind and single; but when he learns thesecret of Tori's affair with her Pastor, it strains their relationship.A fatal accident occurs and a life is lost; another is hanging betweenlife and death, and someone is left waiting.In this book, I do not intend to write in detail about the sisal plant and its husbandry as such account in thoroughly discussed in the book titled Sisal by G. Lock and others. This book will only carry full history as regards to when and how sisal came to Tanzania and its post independence development. It will also discuss how the industry was managed by both German and British Colonial regimes with emphasis on how sisal cutters were recruited within the country and deplorable conditions of their employment-which might lead one to suspect that the recruitment exercise was somehow another form of modern slavery in modern times when British, Greeks, and Asian nationals were managing sisal estates during the British colonial rule.The rain, which had sputtered across the landscape for a fortnight, had ceased. A brief spell of warmth and sunshine had bathed the gardens all morning, bringing the world into summer bloom.I have learned that creative activity can only take place when an inner voice compels one to write or compose. James Baldwin said that there were days when the muses simply were not speaking to him; therefore he could not write. I agree with that. The poems in this collection came to me as a result of things that profoundly affected me at the time. Thus, producing words in my mind that had to be put on paper. I particularly recall the day the Carolina wren pushed me to write The Carolina Wren Came Calling. My Lord What a Morning was composed after a memorable trip to Washington, DC and He Walked Away From Me, after the death of my partner. Life does change rapidly so set sail and enjoy. I have discovered through out my years in the ministry, that many pastors were having difficulty counseling their members. Basically because people do not only deal with the problems of mans sinful nature, but they also deal with psychological problems, that could be generic in their make up. Then there are the generational curses that may not have been broken. This is why I believe, that pastors need to be equipped to counsel the whole man, and to assess mental disorders from sinful nature behavior. The answer to problems and remedies used today show that the consumption of medicines is quite popular. However complete wholeness through the word of God should be as popular. The bible states in proverbs 24:6 (Amp), for by wise counsel you can wage your war and in an abundance of counselors there is victory and safety.This book is dedicated to all the victims who died on September 11, 2001. In addition to the 2, 750 people who died in Manhattan, 184 individuals died at the Pentagon in Washington D.C., and 40 victims died in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. May we never forget them and may we hold their memories in our hearts forever.I am a retired Senior Design Engineer living in warm, sunny San Diego, California.

Rolwing examines nearly all the major writers on our Basic Charter, most of whom repudiate it. He focuses on their manifold criticisms and rejections, reveals their multiple distortions and misunderstandings, rebukes their self-contradictions and inconsistencies, and pities their general theo-phobia. He argues that while America was Founded almost completely by Protestant Christians (the only two "deists" were not even "deists"), what was Founded was formally only a philosophical product, not a faith based or Christian one, although the philosophy had been more Catholic than Protestant. Rolwing makes a great deal of American history, law, ethics, politics, philosophy, and theology easily accessible to the average reader. Each 5 minute essay can give you a high for the whole day."Certainly the Declaration is worth many an hour explaining and defending it. Mr. Rolwing seeks to make the problems brought up about the document capable of being understood by both scholar and ordinary citizen."A Season in Prison" is a unique contribution to prison literature. It is subtle and often poetic. More importantly, it shows how one man redirected.

The world is more peaceful and happier as we are in a day of fasting and meditation.TIEN THIEN KHI CONG helps everyone live healthily, happily, peacefully, and freely at passing away.Special thanks to the folks that supported me throughout thecreation of this book.

It tells the story of two aging computer experts who are forced out of retirement to try to combat an attack on America's computerized financial infrastructure. The terrorists have an unusual demand--that the United States establish a Department of Peace. There are moments of drama, humor and levity, and ultimately the story is critical of aspects of both Islamic fundamentalism and of the kind of dogmatic, tone-deaf American foreign policy that has characterized the Bush administration.The Ferrari Vendetta is a well written suspense\ action packed novel. The author, Richard Jay, piques the interest of the reader with his colorful and descriptive writing style. He keeps the reader intrigued with the plot and it's a Can't put it down novel.

TO KNOW THE TRUE STORY BEHIND A WAR, ASK THE PEOPLE WHO FOUGHT IT 'An observation van is running surveillance on a high-level Bradford gangster. Suddenly the van is surrounded by men in balaclavas and tied shut. Out comes the can of petrol. It is set alight and the two cops inside barely escape with their lives. This incident is never reported. The gangsters clearly have informants inside the police and alerting the public would undermine the force. Everyone shrugs it off – with so much money in the drugs game, corruption is part and parcel of the whole deal' The Drug Wars have been fought on British streets for decades, bringing destruction, corruption and violence in their wake. Yet it is a story that remains fundamentally untold. Until now. In this groundbreaking book, former undercover police officer Neil Woods, who risked his life infiltrating some of the UK's most vicious gangs, pieces together the complex and terrifying reality of the drug war in Britain. Calling upon gripping first-hand accounts from those on both sides of the battle, Drug Wars is told by those who are fighting it.

For two decades Dublin working class communities, in the face of official neglect, fought to overcome an epidemic of heroin abuse that engulfed them. Led, variously, by the Concerned Parents Against Drugs (CPAD) and the Coalition of Communities Against Drugs (COCAD) organisations, the campaign captured headlines as a result of the policy of directly confronting drug pushers. At the same time pressure was continually applied to the government and statutory agencies for concerted action to address the drug crisis. While successful in mobilising communities and impacting on the heroin problem the campaign was marked by continuous conflict with the authorities and dogged by criticisms of vigilantism and of being a front for the Irish Republican Army (IRA). Pushers Out, which fully addresses these charges, is a detailed account of the development of the heroin problem in Dublin and the response of the affected communities. It is the engrossing story of the anti-drugs movement as seen through the eyes of one of its most prominent campaigners. The well written memoir provides, for the first time, the inside story of a campaign described as 'undoubtedly one of the most significant social movements to emerge from Dublin's working class communities.'
