She's St Mary's, after all. Disaster is her default state. But with her family reunited and a jump to Bronze Age Crete in the works, life is getting back to normal. Well, normal for St Mary's. And then, following one fateful night at the Tower of London, everything Max thought she knew comes crashing down around her. Too late for plans. The worst has happened. And who can Max trust now?

Jodi Taylor and her protagonista Madeleine "Max" Maxwell have seduced me' 'A great mix of British proper-ness and humour with a large dollop of historical fun' 'Addictive. I wish St Mary's was real and I was a part of it' 'Jodi Taylor has an imagination that gets me completely hooked' 'A tour de force'

The Deepwater Horizon catastrophe is shaping up to be the largest offshore oil spill in history and an ecological nightmare of epic proportions. Emergency Response Management of Offshore Oil Spills is intended to aid in the response of this tragic disaster by providing, in one volume, information to rapidly orient response workers. It outlines the toxic nature of crude oil, covering properties of crude oil, chemical composition, toxicity to humans and marine life, and investigates the impact of oil spills from historical case studies. The current arsenals available to address oil spills, such as dispersants, absorbing booms, skinning, and other methods are also discussed. Technologies which are rapidly being developed to address the Gulf Oil Spill are considered, alongside with extensive information on chemical protective clothing, air monitoring, respiratory protection, management of waste, and much more. The book concludes with a chapter discussing responsible care and takes a critical look at the reasons why the Deepwater Horizon Rig catastrophe happened and the failure of British Petroleum to act in a responsible manner.

The Department of Health has made a serious attempt to tackle health inequalities across England. But having set a target in 2000 to reduce health inequalities, it took time to embed the issue in the policy and planning framework of the NHS and to develop an evidence base of the most cost-effective interventions. Although life expectancy overall has increased, the gap in life expectancy between the national average and the Government's dedicated "spearhead" areas has continued to widen. The Department will not meet its target to reduce the health inequalities gap by 10 per cent by 2010, as measured by life expectancy at birth, if current trends continue. The Department's strategy lacked effective mechanisms to achieve the target because the evidence base was still being developed. Three key, cost-effective interventions to reduce the gap in life expectancy were identified by the Health Inequalities Intervention Tool: increase the prescribing, first, of drugs to control blood pressure and, second, of drugs to reduce cholesterol, by 40 per cent; and double the capacity of smoking cessation services. But these interventions have not yet been used on the scale required. Primary care trusts are required to address health inequalities from within their general budgets and it is not possible to identify how much money has been spent. PCTs in spearhead areas had £230 more per head to spend than the PCTs in non-spearheads, but there is evidence that some of the extra money is absorbed by higher hospital costs in deprived areas.

Jerry Mitchell is on exercises off the coast of Pakistan when his submarine, the USS Michigan, is ordered to a rendezvous off the Iranian coast. Once there, disembarked SEALs---experts in seaborne commando operations---are to extract two Iranian nationals who have sensitive information on Iran's nuclear weapons program. While en route to shore, Michigan's mini-sub suffers a battery fire, killing one crew member and forcing the survivors---four SEALs and LCDR Mitchell---to scuttle their disabled craft and swim for shore. There they find the two Iranians waiting for them, but their attempts at returning to Michigan are thwarted by heavy Iranian patrol boat activity. When agents of Iran's secret police, VEVAK, appear, escape seems all but impossible. When Mitchell and his men find themselves surrounded by Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp troops, they create a bold plan to escape by sea. It's a desperate gamble, but it's the only way to get proof of the Iranian plot to the U.S. . . . and prevent a devastating new war.

Worst Case Scenario Planner For Women Who Worry Worry as a way of life There are a lot of things that can happen in life that are truly awful. The majority of the most horrible things that happen are unplanned and unexpected. They can be devastating and life changing. And because we don't see them coming, most of them can't be prevented, even with meticulous planning. But the truth is, most of the things we anticipate, never actually happen. Ever! And yet, we spend so much precious time worrying about what might happen, or could happen that we miss out on what is happening. When you're stressed and worried, you lose the ability to think clearly. If left unchecked, the initial thought or fear can snowball in your mind until it becomes an insurmountable hurdle that you feel you can't possibly overcome. Worry stifles your creativity and robs you of today. It reduces your concentration, makes you fearful and problem focused rather than solution focused. And when prolonged, worry can impact your health. Worry sends a message that you don't feel strong enough or capable enough to handle your life. There is a better way Rather than giving your power away and spending valuable time uselessly worrying about something that may or may not occur, there is a better way. And that is to create a Worst Case Scenario Plan. On a psychological level, our greatest fear is the unknown. By thinking about and imaging the worst possible outcome, you take away the element of the unknown. When that happens things suddenly don't look nearly as bad anymore. You know what you are facing. You know what it will take to overcome the obstacle or dig yourself back out of the hole. Living life with confidence and courage As you start to come up with an action plan for recovery, you discover you really are capable of handling the situation. And that builds strength and confidence. As you develop strength and confidence, you become courageous. When you have a plan for handling the worst possible thing that can happen you send a message to yourself that says, "I've got this. I may not like it, but I can handle it". And your confidence will soar. Then, if the terrible thing does occur, you're ready. You have a plan and you won't need to spend precious time frantically trying to figure out what to do. Instead, you can get busy implementing your solution right away. Here's the thing: Sometimes things fall apart, and when they do, you still have to work through the problem and come up with a solution. If you're prepared, you can get on with solving the problem and move into a better place much more quickly and you will feel in control because you have a plan. You know what to do. And that is powerful! So grab this planner today and get started living your life with confidence and courage and kick worry to the curb! Features: Perfect 6"x9" size that you can take anywhere and will easily fit in your bag Crisp white pages with a thick cardstock cover and matte finish Simple, Stylish, and Gorgeous Cover Art Perfect bound 180 pages Designed and printed in USA Perfect gift to yourself, family, friends, co-workers or someone you love So grab this planner today and get started living your life with confidence and courage and kick worry to the curb!
