What one does for love and money! The love being Francine Toutant. The money being one Bill Riley–notorious Dakota Territory outlaw. Thus, we find bounty hunter T. J. Ragland riding across the bleak Dakota Territory carrying the head of Bill Riley in a gunny sack, bound for Fort Leavenworth where a three-thousand-dollar bounty reward awaits him. Reaching the sorry little town of Bend City, tucked into a wide bend in the Missouri River, Ragland intends to catch a riverboat to Fort Leavenworth. Due to some poor decisions, Bill Riley’s head is stolen. Marshal Bethany Bulger is a no-nonsense sort of woman who would like nothing better than for Ragland to leave town. Ragland finds this curious until he discovers that Bethany and some other folks are neck deep in insurance fraud. Throw in a drunken Indian, an undercover Pinkerton’s detective, foreign agents, and murder, and Ragland quickly discovers a lot more is happening in Bend City than its sleepy appearance suggests.

Becoming Socialized in Student Affairs Administration: A Guide for New Professionals and Their Supervisors

$34.00 - $28.47

(as of Mar 09,2019 16:17:37 UTC – Details)

Effective socialization of new student affairs professionals is essential―both for the individual success of these practitioners, and for the work of a college or university that promotes student learning. It enables new professionals to manage the important personal and professional transitions they experience throughout their careers, engage in continuous professional development, and achieve high levels of productivity. It also counteracts the high attrition rate among new hires, with all the attendant costs to the institution in terms of resources spent on recruiting, hiring, training, supervising, and developing staff talent.

The socialization process for new professionals includes formal and informal elements that influence both success and quality of work life. This process is far more complex than a single orientation program organized by a unit or division. Rather, it is a comprehensive process where both the new professional and organization learn about and from each other in ways that influence working relationships and individual and organizational outcomes.

Part I of this book defines the concept, explains its value, and offers a model of socialization.

Part II examines the institutional context in which the socialization of new professionals occurs, and describes how different institutional types influence the socialization process. It considers the changing characteristics of college students, and how these impact the work of student affairs.

In addressing the extra-institutional and professional contexts, Part III considers the role that graduate education plays in preparing new professionals for work in student affairs, and offers guidance to faculty and practitioners involved in graduate education about what they can do to introduce graduate students to professional life. It addresses the importance of professional orientation activities, the roles of supervision and mentorship, as well as the impact of peers and institutions on the socialization process. It concludes with a discussion of the role and importance of professional associations.

This book is intended for graduate program faculty, for senior student affairs officers concerned about developing and retaining the new staff, and for administrators and leaders in student affairs shaping the future of the profession. For new professionals themselves it offers insights on the path to professionalization.

Hand and Wrist Anatomy and Biomechanics: A Comprehensive Guide

$79.99 - $75.78

(as of Feb 11,2019 10:50:37 UTC – Details)

Overall, this is a very good book. The authors do an excellent job of presenting the relevant anatomy and tying it into kinematics and function.Doody’s Reviews (starred review)

There is a saying that “hand surgery without a tourniquet is like repairing a clock in a barrel full of dark ink.” Operating without a sound fundamental knowledge of anatomy can be compared to “stirring around in the soup.” Classic anatomy instruction covers only a fraction of the area of hand surgery: bones, muscles/ligaments, vessels, and nerves. The many different connective-tissue structures are often only briefly highlighted. The complex interaction of the various structures remains a mystery to most. This book presents the specialty of applied anatomy and is intended for medical professionals involved with the hand and its functionality: hand surgeons, trauma specialists, orthopaedists, plastic surgeons, occupational therapists, and physio-therapists.

Key Features:

  • Almost 150 illustrations, anatomical drawings, and photos of anatomy in vivo.
  • Part 1 deals with the anatomy and functional anatomy of the hand
  • Part 2 is dedicated to the surface anatomy of the structures of the forearm, wrist, and hand

The Time-Bearer (The Hirt)

Hey. Heather Marks here. Uh, they told me to write a short description to convince you all to read this, so here I am. I don’t really know what to say other than an annoyingly beautiful man with an army the size of Las Vegas is trying to take over the world by brainwashing everyone and we’re trying to stop him from doing that. But, see, we only have four random teenagers, one crusty old man, one girl who just wants revenge on her boyfriend, and me; a pathetically weak and sarcastic human being who was given just, like, way too much power. So, you see our problem. We wrote this to convince you all to come help us, you know, save the world or whatever. So go ahead and give this a read. Hopefully, we’ll see you soon.
