Every year many of us get at least one or two colds, and every winter, flu and similar viruses affect large numbers of the population. It is all too tempting to reach for over-the-counter drugs in order to ease symptoms such as headaches, stuffiness and sore throats. Give your body a break by trying some of the safe and natural tips provided here. This useful book is a handy, dip-into guide to treating the symptoms of a cold. Some of the remedies are simple and fun to try; they range from a restorative and revitalizing mustard foot bath, and a lavender and eucalyptus rub to ease congestion and aid sleep, to amethyst healing to realign your aura, and meditation and visualization to tap into the power of the mind to bring healing and wellbeing to the body.
This book explores the interface between speech perception and production through a longitudinal acoustic analysis of the speech of postlingually deaf adults with cochlear implants (electrode and computer prostheses for the inner ear in cases of nerve deafness). The methodology is based on the work of Joseph Perkell at MIT, replicating and extending analysis to subjects with modern digital cochlear implants and processor technology. Lowenstein also examines how cochlear implants are portrayed in dramatic and documentary television programs, the scientific accuracy of those portrayals, and what expectations might be taken away by viewers, particularly given modern society's view that technology can overcome the frailties of the human body.
The central philosophical challenge of metaethics is to account for the normativity of moral judgment without abandoning or seriously compromising moral realism. In Morality in a Natural World, David Copp defends a version of naturalistic moral realism that can accommodate the normativity of morality. Moral naturalism is often thought to face special metaphysical, epistemological, and semantic problems as well as the difficulty in accounting for normativity. In the ten essays included in this volume, Copp defends solutions to these problems. Three of the essays are new, while seven have previously been published. All of them are concerned with the viability of naturalistic and realistic accounts of the nature of morality, or, more generally, with the viability of naturalistic accounts of reasons.
