Japan's worst nuclear radiation accident took place at a uranium reprocessing facility in Tokaimura, northeast of Tokyo, on 30 September 1999. The direct cause of the accident was cited as the depositing of a uranyl nitrate solution--containing about 16.6 kg of uranium, which exceeded the critical mass--into a precipitation tank. Three workers were exposed to extreme doses of radiation. Hiroshi Ouchi, one of these workers, was transferred to the University of Tokyo Hospital Emergency Room, three days after the accident. Dr. Maekawa and his staff initially thought that Ouchi looked relatively well for a person exposed to such radiation levels. He could talk, and only his right hand was a little swollen with redness. However, his condition gradually weakened as the radioactivity broke down the chromosomes in his cells. The doctors were at a loss as to what to do. There were very few precedents and proven medical treatments for the victims of radiation poisoning. Less than 20 nuclear accidents had occurred in the world to that point, and most of those happened 30 years ago. This book documents the following 83 days of treatment until his passing, with detailed descriptions and explanations of the radiation poisoning.

John Shedler brings to us the absorbing story of a unique emergency response team in a unique setting: the frozen streets of Alaska. Chronicling his time with the Anchorage Community Service Patrol, Shedler relates a series of compelling actual episodes, from life -or- death medical emergencies to dangerous police situations, set against a backdrop of kindness and empathy as the CSP carries on their humanitarian mission to aid the city's indigent and often inebriated street population. As it pays tribute to the CSP's compassionate and dedicated men and women, always forced to do more with less and rarely given the respect or support they deserved, "A Slow Death in the Streets" also raises important moral and public policy questions regarding how we think about and care for our homeless. Brad Selden, M.D., FORMER EMERGENCY PHYSICIAN, ALASKA NATIVE MEDICAL CENTER FORMER MEMBER, ANCHORAGE ALASKA EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES ADIVSORY BOARD This a great read. The memories of so many events was fun & sad at the same time. This is a quick & have to read for any EMS, ER staff. This describes Anchorage during the 1970, 1980 & early 1990's. A great documentary defining a lot of community effort to care for these people. The concept that this is a lifestyle choice is well brought out.

On 1 June 1939 His Majestys Submarine Thetis sank in Liverpool Bay while on her diving trials. Her loss is still the worst peacetime submarine disaster the Royal Navy has yet faced when ninety-nine men drowned or slowly suffocated during their last fifty hours of life.The disaster became an international media event, mainly because the trapped souls aboard were so near to being saved after they managed to raise her stern about 18 ft above sea level. Still the Royal Navy-led rescue operation failed to find the submarine for many hours, only to rescue four of all those trapped. Very little is known about what actually happened, as the only comprehensive book written on the subject was published in 1958.Many years have now passed since the Thetis and her men died, for which no one was held to be ultimately accountable. However, a great deal of unpublished information has come to light in archives throughout the United Kingdom and beyond. After four years of painstaking research Thetis; The Slow Death of a Submarine explores in minute detail a more rounded picture of what really happened before, during and after her tragic loss. In doing so Tony Booths book also takes a fresh look at culpability and explores some of the alleged conspiracy theories that surrounded her demise.The result is the first definitive account what happened to HMS Thetis and her men a fitting tribute, as the seventieth anniversary of her loss will be on 1 June 2009.

AIDS and cancer are neither random nor infectious diseases. Both are characterized by a proton deficit and a reversal of the chimeric/energetic cooperative trend of the eukaryotic nucleus with the mitochondrial endosymbiont. This pattern is not random. It is consistent with the evolutionary heritage of the eukaryotic cell, which developed the foundational glycolytic pathways during the eon of the earths anaerobic-reducing atmosphere. It should no longer be a mystery that these primitive metabolic patterns dominate when bio-stressors cause deterioration in the quantum and electromagnetic wave forms that allow coherency. The Slow Death of the AIDS/Cancer Paradigm confronts these issues full on.

Terminal illness and the pain and anguish it brings are experiences that have touched millions of people in the past and continue to shape our experience of the present. Hospital machines that artificially support life and monitor vital signs beg the question: Is there not anything that medical science can offer as solace? Incurable and Intolerable looks at the history of incurable illness from a variety of perspectives, including those of doctors, patients, families, religious counsel, and policy makers. This compellingly documented and well-written history illuminates the physical, emotional, social, and existential consequences of chronic disease and terminal illness, and offers an original look at the world of palliative medicine, politics, religion, and charity. Revealing the ways in which history can shed new light on contemporary thinking, Jason Szabo encourages a more careful scrutiny of today's attitudes, policies, and practices surrounding "imminent death" and its effects on society.

The Slow Death of Europe was originally written in 2013 and published as New World Order & Last Man in London. The original text chillingly predicting many of the great events between 2013 & 2017, such as the election of Donald Trump, the suicide attacks in Europe and the first calls for the banning of Islam. Now re-released the story is set thirty-years ahead of time and describes The Slow Death of Europe, explains why and, more importantly, what happens next. ------ Imagine a world with no countries, no religion and no democracy. Imagine the fall of the Great Western Empire. Historically, most Empires created by man have risen and fallen during a period of around 500 years. The Romans, Greeks, Egyptians, the Moors and the Ottomans all, in their turn, reigned supreme until apathy, arrogance and, laziness led to their downfall. However, Mankind would never become extinct as new societies inevitably replace existing social structures sooner or later. By 2016 AD the great and so called democratic Western Empire, which began with the Age of Discovery during the 15th century, was tired, corrupt and had run out of ways of oppressing, cheating and taxing the societies it was supposed to represent, democratically. For decades the pressure had been building, conflict had been growing and it became obvious that Democracy in the Western World was under threat. It had run its natural course and would be unworkable if the West were to survive. Western values and the religion of Islam were non-compatible and the conflict became so intense that the system of democracy would fail. Ethnic tensions increased; violence and disorder followed and people longed for a return to their traditional values. Chaos requires strong leadership. Men of authority. Men like Julius Caesar who could restore the natural order. Bring in a New Order. If the West is to survive then Democracy must be sacrificed. The question is 'what happens next?'
