Описание: In the tradition of Scott Turow s "One L" and Atul Gawande s "Better" comes a real-time, real-life chronicle from an impassioned young doctor on the front lines of high-stakes cardiology. It takes drive, persistence, and plenty of stamina to practice cardiology at the highest level. The competition for training fellowship spots is intense. Hundreds of applicants from all over the world compete to be accepted into the Cardiovascular Disease Training Fellowship at Johns Hopkins. Only nine are chosen each year. This is the story of one of those fellows. In "Alpha Docs, "Daniel Munoz, M.D., recounts his transformation from wide-eyed young medical student to caring, empathetic professional providing a rare inside look into the day-to-day operations of one of the world s most prestigious medical institutions. The training is arduous and often unforgiving, as Munoz and his colleagues are schooled by a staff of brilliant and demanding physicians. How they learn the art and science of untangling cardiac mysteries, how they live up to the standards of an iconic institution, how they survive the pressures and relentlessly push themselves to reach the top ranks of American medicine, supplies the beating heart of this gripping narrative. Readers accompany Munoz as he interacts with his mentors, diagnoses and treats patients, counsels worried family members, and struggles to stay awake for days and nights on end. Lives are saved and sometimes lost. But the rewards are immediate and the incentives powerful. As Munoz confides after helping to rescue one man from the throes of a heart attack: I knew where I wanted to be: not watching but doing, on the side of the glass where I can help shape a patient s fate. I would be a cardiologist.

Описание: "Finally, we have the chance to read a landmark work from one of Cuba's greatest science fiction writers.... If you like intensely psychological sci-fi that deftly piles on the suspense, this novel's for you.... The boundaries between dream and reality, and then between human and machine, almost melt away as the story progresses. And it is de Rojas's skillful manipulation of those boundaries that makes A Legend of the Future so addictive." --SF Signal The first book by the father of Cuban science fiction to be translated into English, this mesmerizing novel, reminiscent of Arthur C. Clarke's 2001: A Space Odyssey, is a science-fiction survival story that captures the intense pressures--economic, ideological, and psychological--inside Communist Cuba. A Legend of the Future takes place inside a spaceship on a groundbreaking mission to Titan, one of Saturn's moons; back home, a final conflict between warring superpowers threatens the fate of the Earth. When disaster strikes the ship, the crewmembers are forced into a grand experiment in psychological and emotional conditioning, in which they face not just their innermost fears, but the ultimate sacrifice--their very humanity.

Описание: The topic of immigration has become increasingly volatile in U.S. society, and undocumented college students play a central role in mobilizing and politicizing a critical mass of activists to push forth a pro-immigration agenda, in particular the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act. The DREAM Act is the only federal legislation that would grant conditional citizenship and some financial aid assistance to undocumented students who have completed two years of college or enlist in military service. Since the DREAM Act failed to pass, undocumented students have moved from peaceful marches to acts of civil disobedience, seeking to disrupt the public discourse that positions undocumented students as living in the shadows of our system. Undocumented college students have created public forums in which they «come out» from these invisible images and pronounce themselves as «undocumented and unafraid».
