Methods of Animal Experimentation: Volume I

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/methods-of-animal-experimen...
Methods of Animal Experimentation, Volume I, provides information on the most common methods for using animals as tools in the search for new biological knowledge. The techniques described will facilitate the most efficient use of research animals and provide guidelines for their utmost comfort and welfare. The text is arranged according to specific research methods rather than to organ system or disease category. This approach gives the reader a broad view of the techniques involved in specific fields and describes the range of usefulness of these techniques. The first five chapters of the present volume describe basic information, methods, and principles involved in managing animals for experimental procedures. The remaining chapters deal with special techniques which have been demonstrated to be distinct, useful methods for using laboratory animals as a basic biomedical research tool. The descriptions of both fundamental and well-developed techniques of animal experimentation in various research fields should be useful to graduate students and experienced scientists who must consider variations in research approaches. The book is a source of information for the scientist administrator who is frequently confronted with different proposed approaches to biological research projects utilizing animals.

Commitment and Healing: Gay Men and the Need for Romantic Love

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/commitment-and-healing-gay-...
What's love got to do with it? Everything, according to Richard Isay's informed and illuminating look at the role of romance in modern gay life. I highly recommend this book for people of any generation and partnership status."-Dean H. Hamer, Ph.D, author of The Science of Desire and The God Gene"Richard Isay offers something far better than simple bromides and false hope. In this book, he challenges us with a provocative, illuminating, and ultimately hopeful look at ourselves and explains how those of us who yearn to love and be loved (and who doesn't?) can best find happiness and healing in a committed relationship."-Eric Marcus, author of The Male Couple's Guide and Together Forever"Many gay men (and others, too) are likely to find this book exceptionally interesting and helpful. In a series of vividly illuminating case histories and with a psychoanalyst's depth and clarity of insight, Richard Isay lucidly explains why gay men have particular difficulty in establishing and sustaining loving relationships and how they might sensibly improve their chances of doing so."-Harry G. Frankfurt, Ph.D, author of On Bullshit and The Reasons of Love"Richard Isay's portrayals of gay men's lives are likely to be controversial. Isay is not the stereotypical psychoanalyst who sits quietly while his patients ramble-and we're all the better for that. He has something to say and what he says is worth hearing. This provocative book should be read by anyone who yearns for but hasn't yet found real love."-William Rubenstein, Founding Director of the Williams Institute on Sexual Orientation Law and former Director of the ACLU Lesbian & Gay Rights Project"Based on Dr. Isay's three decades of experience working with gay men in therapy, this is a deeply thoughtful study of the difficulties gay men may experience with falling and staying in love. For a gay man, reading this book may cause him to revisit some dark places along his own life's journey, but it will also give him a glim

William Alexander Percy

https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/william-alexander-pe...
In this evocative biography, Benjamin E. Wise presents the singular life of William Alexander Percy (1885-1942), a queer plantation owner, poet, and memoirist from Mississippi. Though Percy is best known as a conservative apologist of the southern racial order, in this telling Wise creates a complex and surprising portrait of a cultural relativist, sexual liberationist, and white supremacist. We follow Percy as he travels from Mississippi around the globe and, always, back again to the Delta. Wise's exploration brings depth and new meaning to Percy's already compelling life story-his prominent family's troubled history, his elite education and subsequent soldiering in World War I, his civic leadership during the Mississippi River flood of 1927, his mentoring of writers Walker Percy and Shelby Foote, and the writing and publication of his classic autobiography, Lanterns on the Levee. This biography sets Percy's life and search for meaning in the context of his history in the Deep South and his experiences in the gay male world of the early twentieth century. In Wise's hands, these seemingly disparate worlds become one.

Excerpt:I nestled into the covers again, but this time I faced William. With one hand, I traced and ruffled the curly chestnut-colored hair on his strong chest. With the other hand, I moved lower, toward his cute black briefs. the blankets kept me from seeing exactly what they concealed, but a gentle groping would tell the tale. No way, I thought. He CAN'T be THAT big! But William was. The meat encased in his undershorts was massive. Unable to resist, I groped and fondled, trying to get a sense of its shape. William's pretty green eyes fluttered open, locked on mine.I was caught in the act. but I didn't pull my hand away. William smiled sleepily, then yawned, took a drink of water from the glass I'd brought in - and tackled me."So that's how it is," I said."Mm hm."The covers were off the bed. William was on top of me in a quasi-pushup position, his face over my neck. He moved in. sunlight ignited the stray hairs on his broad shoulders, on his generous biceps, the back of his wrists. His touch was like an electric shock. He kissed the underside of my chin, rubbed his stubbly face against my chest like a cat rubbing a leg - kissed one nipple - took it in his mouth, biting and sucking and tormenting - I gasped, grabbed his head, pulled his face even closer -William's tongue wound downwards.

"Mr. Bahr, we at the National African American Constitutional Liberties Union do not take just any case that comes our way. We have examined your company and determined that your lack of workforce diversity supports our client's charges." Bear's voice remained level, but his jaw clenched at the implication. "Sharp Industries is a very specialized company. Our hiring practices always have and always will revolve around finding the most qualified people while conforming to all legal requirements for a corporation of our size. I don't care what color or gender or background any of our people come from as long as they do their jobs well and don't…" he paused briefly, and I knew he was choosing his words carefully, "and don't betray our trust."

I Wish I Had Never Been Born: Rediscovering Abraham Lincoln

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/i-wish-i-had-never-been-bor...
It was a fine day for a battle. Hundreds of spectators from Washington took the day off to tag after the army. They came in buggies and on horseback, riding seven long hours in the hot Virginia sun. Mostly men, a few women, a host of politicians - among them Ohio Senator Ben Wade, New York Congressman Alfred Ely, and Illinois Congressman Elihu Washburne. English war correspondent William Howard Russell reported, "The spectators were all excited, and a lady with an opera glass who was quite beside herself when an unusually heavy discharge roused the current of her blood…'that is splendid, oh my, is not that first rate? I guess we will be in Richmond to-morrow,' she exclaimed." An officer told them, "We are whipping them good!" and a cheer went through the crowd. Later that afternoon many of the spectators were caught in the wild frenzy of Union troops stampeding their way back to Washington in a disorganized unruly retreat. For Abraham Lincoln the defeat at Bull Run meant only one thing. It was going to be a long war, with no quick end in sight. He told A.G. Riddle, "I am the President of one part of this divided country at least, but look at me! I wish I had never been born! I've a white elephant on my hands, one hard to manage. With a fire in my front and rear, having to contend with the jealousies of military commanders and not receiving that cordial cooperation and support from Congress that could reasonably be expected, with an active and formidable enemy in the field threatening the very life blood of the Government, my position is anything but a bed of roses."I Wish I Had Never Born is a quick easy read following the life of Abraham Lincoln. You'll learn about his early days, his loves, his disappointments, his rise to power, and his assassination. And, yes, we will talk about that annoying rumor of Lincoln being gay. Say it isn't so Abe?Read the book. Learn all you need to know about Abraham Lincoln in short, illustrated bites.

Methods of Animal Experimentation: Volume VI

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/methods-of-animal-experimen...
Methods of Animal Experimentation, Volume VI is a compendium of papers that defines which animals will prove most useful in biological experiments using the best methods in an environment of complex technologies and therapies. One paper reviews the genetic methods in animal experimentation including tests of Mendelian ratios, chromosomes crossing-over, chromosome anomalies, and gene transfer that produces congenic strains. Another paper explains the concepts and methodologies used in animals in ophthalmic research, particularly in ocular pharmacology, aqueous humor dynamics, glaucoma, and animal models of non-infectious uveitis. One paper analyzes the neural mechanisms of pain in an intact nervous system following ethical and moral principles of human treatment. For example, the use of different stimuli to elicit pain is applied only in situations where the stimuli is more appropriate, whether in behavioral or physiological experiments. The paper provides a list of requirements for the ideal pain stimulus. Another paper describes the methods in using standard animal models when an unknown agent is to be given as a general or local anesthesia. This book can prove beneficial to researchers, scientists, and laboratory technicians dealing with animals in relation to pharmacological, biological, chemical, and physiological research.

Methods of Animal Experimentation: Volume III

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/methods-of-animal-experimen...
Methods of Animal Experimentation, Volume III, compiles methods of animal experimentation in a variety of fields so that the researcher might have a reference that would allow him to incorporate other techniques in his research studies. The methods described represent only the most efficient ways known to date for using animals to gain research information. They are not, however, "standard methods" for research in which each experiment seeks or confirms new information by another means. The largest portion of this volume is devoted to behavioral science because of the growing importance of this field in two respects. First, it is an important consideration in all experiments in which animals are used repeatedly. Second, the use of higher animals in comparative behavioral research offers much toward the solution of disease problems of man related to behavior and perhaps even clues to his social interactions. A chapter by an author with extensive experiences with dolphins helps us judge how this animal may be used, and warns of the many problems incurred in research using any of the marine mammals. Other chapters cover dental research on animals, fetal surgery and physiological measurements in very young animals, and microsurgery.

Nutrition, Aging, and Artificial Organs

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/nutrition-aging-and-artific...
Methods of Animal Experimentation, Volume V: Nutrition, Aging, and Artificial Organs is a collection of papers that deals with methods to be used in animal experiments to achieve cost effectiveness in their use. This collection discusses laboratory animals used in different experiments such as in nutritional research, aging studies, and artificial organ research. The papers describe the species of animals appropriate for the kind of experiment to be conducted and the criteria that should be followed in choosing a certain species. These criteria include their growth rate, stage of development, as well as existing performance variations. In determining test animals for aging experiments, the book recommends that complete data be available on the genetics of the species, strain, diet history, environmental factors, breeding, and spontaneous diseases to approximate the best test results. The book addresses that the aged are more susceptible to inputs than the young in terms of morphological and functional age. In selecting test animals for artificial organ research, the book notes the importance of animal selection that will be determined, for example, by 1) the size of the prosthesis; 2) the amount of blood flow needed for the device differs in animals and man; and 3) the surgical techniques that will be employed. This book will prove helpful for laboratory workers, veterinarians, and technicians working with laboratory animals. This collection will also be appreciated by researchers designing medical and scientific tests.
