From Library Journal
Sixty-year-old Sully is "nobody's fool," except maybe his own. Out of work (undeclared-income work is what he does, when he can), down to his last few bucks, hampered by an arthritic broken knee, Sully is worried that he's started on a run of bad luck. And he has. The banker son of his octogenarian landlady wants him evicted; Sully's estranged son comes home for Thanksgiving only to have his wife split; Sully's own high-strung ex-wife seems headed for a nervous breakdown; and his longtime lover is blaming him for her daughter's winding up in the hospital with a...

Clara Callan
Richard Bruce Wright

Dec 2003
Paperback

Book Review
A finely detailed depiction of the Depression era, Richard B. Wright's Clara Callan is told entirely in the letters and journal entries of two adult sisters, Clara and Nora Callan, and their older lesbian friend, Evelyn. The novel, Wright's ninth, made a surprising sweep of Canada's major awards for best novel--the Giller Prize and the Governor General's Award--in 2001. Wright has the gift of making the reader care deeply about these characters and their worlds, which include small town Ontario, where Clara is a sensitive schoolteacher, and New York City, where the younger Nora has moved to become a radio soap opera star. Since both sisters are still "on the shelf," their roller-coaster love lives--Nora's in worldly Manhattan and Clara's in the more restrictive atmosphere of small-town spinsterhood--are a primary subject of...

From The New England Journal of Medicine, June 11, 1998
During the first three decades after World War II, a nationwide system of blood banks was established to meet an ever-growing demand for blood transfusions, and blood bankers were discovering numerous red-cell antigens and developing methods to ensure the selection of compatible blood. Spurred mostly by the emergence of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome as a public health threat, the past two decades have brought about great improvements in lowering the risk of transfusion-transmitted disease, more judicious practice in transfusing allogeneic blood, and growth in the use of autologous blood during surgical operations. With the transition from two infectious-disease tests for blood donors in the early 1970s to nine tests today, the risk of infection with hepatitis and the...

Book Description
Bowerman and O'Connell's, Essentials of Business Statistics (EBS) delivers clear and understandable explanations of business statistics concepts through the use of case studies and examples. The non-calculus-based approach thoroughly covers descriptive and inferential statistics with an emphasis on business applications.

The abundant examples reflect real applications of statistics relevant to business students.

Peace Officers' Guide to California's Dangerous Weapons Laws
Richard Bruce
0965362116
Jan 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
PEACE OFFICERS' GUIDE TO CALIFORNIA'S DANGEROUS WEAPONS LAWS is fascinating reading, regardless of where you live. The laws that apply to the possession and use of dangerous weapons are both confusing and complicated. In addition, there is little consistency between those laws written decades ago and those recently enacted. This text simplifies this area of law for both the layperson and the veteran officer. Weapons are discussed and logically grouped within this book, unlike the penal code, where they are scattered throughout. It is a concept book that is in workbook form to associate both a word picture and an illustration of the topic at hand. Self-test exercises ensure retention.
