Introduction to Pharmacology  Third Edition

The first edition of Introduction to Pharmacology has over recent years become a highly influential text among students wishing to acquire a knowledge of pharmacology without having to refer to the larger, more detailed, traditional pharmacology volumes. This revised and updated second edition contains significant new material to bring the reader up-to-date with the latest practices and principles in pharmacology. Exploring the basic principles in both the therapeutic and toxicological aspects of drug use, the book employs contemporary examples of medication, supplemented with an increased number of accurate and easy-to-interpret figures and diagrams. Additionally, Introduction to Pharmacology presents the important concept of understanding the limitations surrounding the drugs that cure, replace physiological inadequacies, or treat symptoms, and which have led to the system of drug classification. The broad scope of the book also encompasses the role of the FDA, drugs in sport, and the use of animals for drug experimentation. A clear and accessible book, Introduction to Pharmacology builds on the strengths of the first edition and is an invaluable reference for all students interested in this subject.

The Wisdom Way of Teaching

Immense challenges now face the global community. How can educators train the next generation of students to deal with the vast array of issues awaiting them in every sector of society? Written as a testimony to three decades of experimentation with these challenges in mind, Hong Kong International School humanities teacher Dr. Marty Schmidt draws upon the universal Wisdom tradition to propose pedagogical frameworks that combine what he calls the yang of social conscience with the yin of inner awakening. This yin-yang approach forms the basis of the The Wisdom Way of Teaching, which describes in curricular detail how to cultivate the whole person development of students. ENDORSEMENTS: “The Wisdom Way of Teaching is both a manifesto and a manual of what transformative education needs to be in the years to come. I felt inspired to read about the impact of a holistic curriculum that integrates service-learning and spiritual practice. Brick by brilliant brick, Marty Schmidt builds that all-important bridge between the inner world and the outer world. The principles and practices that Marty lays out in generous detail can be applied to classrooms of all kinds and ages. I wish every teacher could read this book!” — Fran Grace, University of Redlands “For secondary teachers and other educators working at the intersection of social justice and spirituality, Marty’s book offers practical examples, creative activities, and cross-cultural teaching stories from a lifetime of impassioned teaching. Informed by his deep study of Eastern and Western spiritual traditions, this book comes from the heart of a teacher, infused with contemplative insight, and inspired by a love of the world — the broken world that is and the better world that could be.” — Vachel Miller, Appalachian State University

An Introduction to Pharmaceutical Formulation

An Introduction to Pharmaceutical Formulation describes the various forms in which drugs may be supplied to doctors, patients, and veterinary surgeons. An account is given of the materials which may be added to drugs in order to provide formulated products, and of the methods by which formulations are assessed. The book begins with a background on pharmaceutical formulation, describing manufactured and official formulations, important criteria for a formulation, and technical advances in pharmacy during the post-war period. This is followed by separate chapters on diluents, solvents, and liquid vehicles; thickeners and binders; the chemistry and pharmacology of surface-active agents; and colors, flavors, and preservatives. Subsequent chapters cover solid, liquid, and paste formulations; controlled drug release; the stability of formulations; the importance of the container of the formulation; and large-scale manufacturing of formulated products. This book is intended primarily for students of pharmacy. It is not a textbook of practical or theoretical pharmaceutics but should be read in conjunction with other books on these subjects.

Genetic Algorithms in Elixir

From finance to artificial intelligence, genetic algorithms are a powerful tool with a wide array of applications. But you don't need an exotic new language or framework to get started; you can learn about genetic algorithms in a language you're already familiar with. Join us for an in-depth look at the algorithms, techniques, and methods that go into writing a genetic algorithm. From introductory problems to real-world applications, you'll learn the underlying principles of problem solving using genetic algorithms. Evolutionary algorithms are a unique and often overlooked subset of machine learning and artificial intelligence. Because of this, most of the available resources are outdated or too academic in nature, and none of them are made with Elixir programmers in mind. Start from the ground up with genetic algorithms in a language you are familiar with. Discover the power of genetic algorithms through simple solutions to challenging problems. Use Elixir features to write genetic algorithms that are concise and idiomatic. Learn the complete life cycle of solving a problem using genetic algorithms. Understand the different techniques and fine-tuning required to solve a wide array of problems. Plan, test, analyze, and visualize your genetic algorithms with real-world applications. Open your eyes to a unique and powerful field - without having to learn a new language or framework. What You Need: You'll need a macOS, Windows, or Linux distribution with an up-to-date Elixir installation.
