A trusted economic commentator provides a penetrating account of the threats to China's continued economic rise Under President Xi Jinping, China has become a large and confident power both at home and abroad, but the country also faces serious challenges. In this critical take on China’s future, economist George Magnus explores four key traps that China must confront and overcome in order to thrive: debt, middle income, the Renminbi, and an aging population. Looking at the political direction President Xi Jinping is taking, Magnus argues that Xi’s authoritarian and repressive philosophy is ultimately not compatible with the country’s economic aspirations. Thorough and well researched, the book also investigates the potential for conflicts over trade, China’s evolving relationship with Trump, and the country’s attempt to win influence and control in Eurasia through the Belt and Road initiative.

Sure he's gorgeous, funny, and charming--but early in any doomed relationship there are warning signals foretelling the bad news to come. Studies show that most women will try to justify these signs, excusing them so they don't interfere with their fantasy of having met the perfect man. Unfortunately, such signs are usually all too prophetic--they are the essence of what Drs. Gary Aumiller and Daniel Goldfarb call "Red Flags." The question then becomes how to detect and respond to a Red Flag before it's too late. This first-of-its-kind book will help readers determine a man's all-important "loser potential" within the first three dates.Each chapter includes a profile of a different loser, a post-date quiz to help you determine if Mr. Right is Mr. Wrong, and important information about the best way to break up with him. Red Flags has all the fun of a magazine quiz combined with the expertise of psychologists who specialize in the techniques used by the police to profile criminals. They know how to spot the rejects--and now you will, too!

Unique ready reference for all complementary medicine, massage therapy and manual therapy practitioners and students alerting them to ‘red flag’ symptoms which should be referred for Western medical investigation or emergency medical treatment. When can a patient be safely reassured and when do they need further investigation or treatment? ‘Red flags’ are clinical signs that suggest a patient needs prompt investigation and treatment for a potentially dangerous situation. Therapists increasingly find themselves working alongside conventionally trained doctors and nurses and it is vital for them to understand conventional medical diagnoses, symptoms and treatments and, crucially, to recognise warning signs of serious disease. This is essential in order to be a safe practitioner. Clare Stephenson’s The Complementary Therapist’s Guide to Red Flags and Referrals meets this need by providing an easily accessible reference to ‘red flag’ symptoms, designed especially for therapists. It offers guidance on how best to respond to those symptoms and signs of disease which can be readily discerned through routine history taking and basic examination of the body. The guidance is in language which is accessible to therapists, and clear advice is offered on when to refer patients to conventional medicine practitioners and how to communicate with doctors when making a referral. Clinical syndromes which merit rapid response are summarised for ease of reference.

Recognizing and Reporting Red Flags for the Physical Therapist Assistant will help you develop skills to recognize signs and symptoms that can compromise patient care, It is the first text to present a consistent, three-step model for monitoring patients for red flags relating to neuromuscular and musculoskeletal problems, medical diseases, side effects of medications, and other co-morbidities that may be unknown to the PT. Combining the insights of physical therapist Catherine Cavallaro Goodman and physical therapist assistant Charlene Marshall, this resource is unmatched in providing clear guidelines for finding and documenting red flags. Coverage of warning flags includes red and yellow flags, risk factors, clinical presentation, signs and symptoms, helpful screening clues, and guidelines for communicating with the PT, allowing you as the PTA to quickly recognize the need for any re-evaluation of the patient. Three-step approach to formative assessments of physical therapy patients provides a consistent way to watch for and report on adverse changes such as range of motion, strength, pain, balance, coordination, swelling, endurance, or gait deviations. PTA Action Plans show the clinical application of text material relating to observing, documenting, and reporting red (or yellow) flags to the physical therapist. Clinically relevant information includes the tools that you need to monitor the patient’s response to selected interventions, and accurately and quickly report changes to the supervising PT. Picture the Patient sections address what to look for when assessing or working with patients, especially typical red flag signs and symptoms of emerging problems. Case examples and critical thinking activities connect theory to practice, showing the role of the PTA and how the PTA can integrate clinical observations with clinical reasoning skills so that they can. Cognitive processing-reasoning approach encourages you to learn to gather and analyze data, pose and solve problems, infer, hypothesize, and make clinical judgments, so that you can notify the supervising PT of clients who need further evaluation or may require a referral or consultation with other health care professionals. Summary boxes and tables highlight key information for quick reference. Key terminology is listed in each chapter, which each term bolded within the chapter and defined in a back-of-book glossary. Full-color illustrations and design clearly demonstrate pathologies and processes and make lookup easier in busy clinical settings. An Evolve companion website enhances your problem-solving and decision-making skills with additional case studies, problem-solving questions, and activities, as well as screening tools and checklists. Combined authorship by a physical therapist and physical therapist assistant provides an authoritative and unique voice in the PTA field.

It was a typical Thursday night at the fire house relaxing between calls when he walked in and my heart began racing. A tall handsome man with piercing blue eyes stood before me. That is how I met Peter Lake. Instantly we had a connection and a deep friendship which turned into a budding romance. Not long thereafter we were happily married! Our honeymoon began in the beautiful Bahamas, and the sandy beach was calling our names. Peter asked if I was ready to go in. He wrapped his arm around my waist dragging me in deeper and deeper as I struggled trying to get away from him and to stay afloat. People began to notice and just like that he pulled me back to the shore. Mocking my fear without any care in the world and on our plane ride back home I didn't recognize the man sitting next to me anymore and everything changed from that moment on. My loving husband changed every day as did I and I struggled with my sanity and my self-worth. As the days turned into weeks and the weeks into months and months into years it was imperative to make a change in my life while saving it at the same time. The clock was ticking and I was running out of time.

“I was a prisoner before the war; I am no freer now after the war.” This memoir of an Iraqi soldier writing under a pseudonym uses “red flags” as a metaphor for military targets during his country’s invasion by the United States in 2003. He recounts his involvement in Saddam Hussein’s army under threat of execution, and says danger came as much from the suspicious Iraqi government as from American invaders. Even the fall of Baghdad and the Hussein government has not led to a better life for his people, whom he says are still divided by war.

Most frauds perpetrated by senior managers take longer to uncover than those by other occupational groups and they steal more.This is a serious problem world-wide. Currently the Red Flag approach is used by auditors to prevent and uncover fraud and in some countries it is statutory. However, the existing approach does not catch managerial fraudsters quickly or very often. In Managerial Fraud, Dr Terry Sheridan reports the findings of her study of fraudulent executives. Her work illuminates the particular methods fraudsters employ to appear more authentic than the average person and reveals two types of executive fraudster with very different behaviours. All this helps to explain why the current Red Flag approach fails to identify potential fraudsters and instead tends to focus on Red Flag executives who are negative characters, but non-fraudulent and accounts for the problem auditors face, who see Red Flag indicators and are obliged to conduct further audits, yet find nothing of substance. During the author’s research, the innocent colleagues who worked closely with fraudulent managers have for the first time been interviewed about their experiences and had their impressions analysed, leading to the development of an innovative typology of fraudulent executives based on Impression Management Theory. Better understanding of what Dr Sheridan has uncovered might result in organisations being able to reduce their exposure to fraud perpetrated by their own senior management.

Average Americans battling with their own daily struggles find themselves in the middle of a terrorist plot to poison their local water supply. Set in a small town in the south, the battle could take place anywhere in America. Relate and feel empathy for characters as they draw from their own life experiences in an effort to save themselves. Extreme faith from one could save all if they trust, as he does, in the belief that good will always overcome evil. An ordinary day in the lives of the characters is suddenly filled with extraordinary circumstances. With numbing fear ever present, bravery surfaces in life and death situations from normally uncourageous people. The events are not only feasible with today's threat of terrorist attack but similar scenarios are probable. Complacent, needing a major break to keep his house of cards from falling, in romance and finance, John prays for guidance, but would not have chosen the path that opens for him.

"Small-scale, family fishing enterprises manage to persist despite a range of difficult economic and ecological changes and disruptions. Red Flags and Lace Coiffes is an ... ethnography that explores how and why family-based fishing enterprises continue in the face of what seem to be overwhelming odds. Using historical ethnography as a lens through which to understand how the fishers and their families of the Bigouden region in France have situated themselves over time, Charles R. Menzies argues that local identity plays an important role as global capitalist pressures force these fishing communities to reorganize or disappear entirely. Throughout, the book touches on key concepts such as identity, culture, globalization, kinship, work, the environment,and the economy."--Publisher's description.
