Bioethics Law and Human Life Issues
Bioethics, Law, and Human Life Issues: A Catholic Perspective on Marriage, Family, Contraception, Abortion, Reproductive Technology, and Death and Dying draws on the Magisterial teaching of the Catholic Church to outline a Catholic response to a host of controversial issues related to human life. Scarnecchia lays out a Catholic moral theology based on the writings of Pope John Paul II and Thomas Aquinas, and he then applies those Christian moral principles to today's most contentious ethical issues, including reproductive technology, embryo adoption, contraception, abortion, family and same-sex marriage, and euthanasia and assisted suicide. This review of Catholic moral principles brings together an in-depth consideration of the central human life issues of our day with abundant reference to the Church's social teaching and to contrasting positions of today's leading ethicists.

This book gives in depth information of the pre and post operative management of patients undergoing gastrointestinal surgery, with emphasis on the care required to lessen the potential complications post operation. Patients having undergone surgery face a 10 per cent risk of adverse reaction to the treatment and certain gastrointestinal operations have a 50 per cent risk of postoperative complications, particularly among cancer patients. Consequently preventing complications from arising is of paramount importance. That's what this book sets out to do.

Electronic Fan Relationship Management How a Professional Sports Team Can Successfully Use the Internet to Manage and Develop Fan Relationships
Most forward thinking organizations today realize the value of a customer relationship management program to achieve increases in revenue, profitability and customer satisfaction, and today the Internet can provide that avenue to develop and strengthen their customer relationships. Professional sports teams have not yet taken advantage of the capabilities of the Internet to manage their customer/fan relationships, and this research will demonstrate how a professional sports team can successfully use the Internet to manage and develop their fan relationships. By developing an electronic Fan Relationship Management (e-FRM) program, a professional sports team can develop long term relationships with its fans around the globe. In this eye-opening book, Dr. Bob Goldwasser establishes that a strong e-FRM program must include a team web site full of interactive features, an email and text messaging fan outreach program and in-game enhancements using the Internet, and if implemented Dr. Goldwasser demonstrates that fans are more likely to visit a team web site and more likely to attend future games. An aggressive e-FRM program will engage avid sports fans and will entertain the occasional fan. Dr. Goldwasser challenges every professional sports team to use the Internet to increase fan retention and loyalty and to enhance the fan's game experiences, thus building long term relationships with their fans which will positively impact the team's profitabilty.

The battle of the sexes can be explained at its deepest level, writes Meredith Small, as a war of different mating strategies. In her intriguing and provocative book about females and sex, Small concentrates on primates - the prosimians, monkeys, and apes, whose ancestry we share - to show how females have evolved to be highly sexual creatures. Using nonhuman female primates as a gauge, she describes the sexual and reproductive strategies of our nearest cousins to demonstrate that just as males are strategists in the reproductive game, females also search for good partners, enjoy sex, and keep their own reproductive interests in mind. Female Choices opens with the evolution of sexual reproduction and of males and females as distinct forms. Small then introduces primates and gives a detailed history of the average female's life cycle. After devoting chapters to sexuality, reproduction, and sexual selection theory - the theory behind female mate choice - she discusses what female primates actually do. Drawing on her own firsthand observation of nonhuman primates, she shows that some are highly "promiscuous, " others prefer several unfamiliar males, and some apparently make no choices at all. The behavior of the undiscriminating females often affects the evolution of relationships between the sexes and can influence the social structure of a species. In a final chapter on human behavior, Small maintains that the human pair-bond is a tenuous compromise made by the two sexes to bring up highly dependent infants. But, she writes, because both sexes also have a "natural" tendency to seek out other partners, that bond is always at risk. Small insists that female choice is not necessarily sexualselection, but is nonetheless important to female fitness. Sure to provoke controversy, her book will add a new twist to an exciting field of research while offering significant clues as to the origins of our own sexuality.
