“Kladno Tales” (Kladenske Povidky) is a collection of short essays taken from the views and experiences of an American high school English teacher living in the town of Kladno, a former industrial town located 20km from Prague in the Czech Republic.

He writes about local people and places as well as about his teaching experience and his relationships with the students. Kladno Tales is very entertaining light reading which gives the reader an idea of what it’s like for a man to integrate into a foreign society, become accepted as a local and after some time feel more at home in the foreign society than in the one in which he grew up.

By: Reverend Dr. James R. Gibbs, Jr.

The book is a “how to” create a community-wide awareness from a multi-cultural, interdenominational, holistic, and theological perspective for at-risk and troubled youth(s). It is based on my experiences as a Christian educator, youth counselor and pastor. Through personal witness of African-American youths, I have experienced first-hand and swallowed the bitter pill of poverty, violence, victimization and homicide.

African-American youth(s) are statistically the greatest perpetrators of crime in the communities, and the lowest academic achievers. It is my hope to create a greater community-wide awareness at a time when society will see black youth(s) beyond the playing field and look for the real role models in their respective communities such as; teachers, pastors, mothers, fathers, and grandparents. In my book, I will place greater emphasis on the role of parenting and education in influencing youth(s) to partake in activities which will hone their abilities and create positive outlooks on life. The active involvement of various organizations, schools and individuals could hasten the achievement of these goals; for unity leads to revolutionary reform.

Interpersonal violence has a dramatic impact on the health of American youth(s). Homicides, the salient and easily measured impact, account for one of every five deaths among youths, ages fifteen to twenty-four and 58 per cent of deaths among black males fifteen to nineteen. From 1985 through 1990, firearm homicide rates increased 141 per cent for all fifteen-to-nineteen year olds and nearly tripled among black males in this age group.

Positive Adolescent Choices Training (P.A.C.T.) designed specifically for African-American male and female adolescents, applies cognitive training methods in small group settings in six skill areas. Elementary school teachers (preferably), select students for participation based on social skill deficiencies, problems with aggressive behavior, or history of victimization. Training is provided twice a week in fifty minute sessions for half of the school year. PACT volunteers will facilitate the training and are aided by a high-quality video tape that demonstrates the skills in realistic situations.

The purpose of this book is to help you spend less time memorizing all the details you will need to do well on the CCS (Computer-based Case Simulations) questions in your exam. This exam requires significant time, energy and concentration, and the mnemonics provided in this book will allow you to remember all the steps for managing a patient’s care in an emergency room, inpatient or office setting so that you can answer questions quickly and accurately—saving your precious time and energy by helping you better manage the examination experience.

Efficiency is key to a successful examination experience, so familiarity with the USMLE CD software will be crucial. Know the normal values and their cut-off points for the most widely used lab tests and don’t type everything out in the ordering window. Inputting the first 3 to 5 letters will bring up matching terms for you to select. You can also use abbreviations, like TSH and CXR instead of thyroid stimulating hormones and chest X-ray as another way to save time when answering questions.

There may be a few cases on the exam that you have never encountered, but don’t panic; just follow the steps and manage the patient in the appropriate setting (the office or emergency room)—ordering labs, imaging and meds as you go. If you handle the patients appropriately you will be fine, even if your final diagnosis is not correct or it seems that the patient’s condition deteriorates.

The CSS portion of the exam is more about memorization than being a good doctor. Memorization of the steps you must follow to treat each patient in each case is of primary importance. The methods I have described in this book will help you master these steps so that you can execute them efficiently and, paired with diligent practice using the software provided by the USMLE, will contribute greatly to your success on the CCS questions.

This book will show conclusive proof that most people should not have a drivers’ license, a car, or breathing privileges.

Seriously, though, this is a good book for beginning drivers, or those from foreign lands, or all women, or youth, or old people. Yes, anyone can benefit from my years of observing bad drivers, especially me... if I can get you to purchase multiple copies!

To an American public opinion, anchored in the belief that Islam is all Arab, “Understanding Islam - The Persian Imprint” demonstrates it to be off the mark.

The truth is that Iran (the Persia of old) fractured Islam’s identity twice: causing it to be non Arab, first; and provoking its schism later.

Further, the World identifies Islamic Men of Science, and their stellar achievements, as Arab whereas, in fact, they were all Persian and Turkomen.

This is a story of fantasy and hard cold facts beginning with a pizza party given by the “Big Fat Cat” prima donna of the microbe family.

The party was given in honor of Albus, the Colonel’s offspring. Guests were the Streptococci, Pnemococci, Gonococci, Meningococci, Diphtheria, E. Coli, Typhoid, Dysentery, Tetanus and Botulinum. TB used a cellphone to call in sick, because a human he had infected with TB returned the favor as a carrier and infected TB with Tuberculosis.

Music suddenly split the air with Beethoven’s 3rd Sonato in Asia Minor. The Dayton Place Hot Tomato Philharmonic Orchestra revved it up while the microbes did the ‘Hokey Pokey’ and the intricate ‘Two Step’.

The young bacteria went to school to learn about epidemics.

The book ends with two fine collections of microscopes and bacteria.

If you are a high school or college student and are interested in or are studying in the area of science you should definitely read this book. You could use it for help in writing reports and to become informed about epidemics which attack everyone.

Public libraries could use this as a student reference. Precautionary steps to prevent disease are mentioned as important advice to every reader. These steps recommended by the medical profession may save the reader’s life. The warning steps should be practiced at home and the constant sterilization of eating utensils are of utmost importance, plus all other medical advice published.

In this book you will find full chapters of information on Smallpox, Polio, Bubonic Plague, Legionnaire’s Disease, Cholera, Ebola, Marburg and AIDS.
