This text begins with an in-depth overview into the human organism at the molecular, cellular, tissue and organ levels, and develops into a discussion of the objectives and features of organ systems of the evolved human. The book also covers the relationship between the human body and the environment in which it exists including other organisms that co-habitate the environment. Discussions of the nature of other organisms such as various animals, plants, and micro-organisms makes later information about food science, nutrient density in various food sources, and nutraceuticals easier to comprehend. Advanced Human Nutrition examines human nutrient requirements, the basis for RDA and other recommendations; human nutrition, digestion, and absorption with relation to organs, exocrine and endocrine functions, histology, and absorptive activities; macronutrients and micronutrients; eicosanoid chemistry and function, and more. The present and future of nutrition research is examined, including everything from the HANES studies to electron microscopy and molecular biology. Features ·

Expanded and updated, the new edition of Advanced Nutrition: Macronutrients, Micronutrients, and Metabolism continues in the tradition of its predecessor, serving as an essential textbook for advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students studying human nutrition. The book incorporates fundamental concepts in nutrition science—while also acknowledging the contributions made by other sciences such as biochemistry, genetics, and physiology—in order to help us understand why specific nutrients are required. It provides comprehensive coverage of both macro and micronutrients, emphasizing each nutrient’s description, absorption, use, and excretion. Highlights of the Second Edition include Chapters addressing exercise, obesity, starvation, and trauma Updates with respect to nutrigenomics and nutrient-gene interactions within specific topics Expansion of the aging effects with regard to life cycle and nutrient-specific chapters Nutrition requirement comparisons among different species and animal models for human diseases The chemistry and physiology of each essential nutrient and its integration in the body Chapter summaries, case studies, problem-solving activities, and critical thinking questions Web addresses and expansion and updating of the reference lists at the end of each chapter Ancillary material designed to enhance the teaching experience is provided for instructors on PowerPoint® slides.

Research on Service Learning

The purpose of this set is to improve service learning research and practice through strengthening its theoretical base. Contributing authors include both well-known and emerging service learning and community engagement scholars, as well as scholars from other fields. The authors bring theoretical perspectives from a wide variety of disciplines to bear as they critically review past research, describe assessment methods and instruments, develop future research agendas, and consider implications of theory-based research for enhanced practice. This set constitutes a rich resource that suggests new approaches to conceptualizing, understanding, implementing, assessing, and studying service learning. Each chapter offers recommendations for future research. Research on Service Learning: Conceptual Frameworks and Assessment will be of interest to both new and veteran service learning instructors seeking to enhance their practice by integrating what has been learned in terms of teaching, assessment, and research. Staff and faculty who are responsible for promoting and supporting service learning at higher education institutions, evaluating community service programs, and working with faculty to develop research on service learning, will also find this volume helpful. For scholars and graduate students reviewing and conducting research related to service learning, this book is a comprehensive resource, and a knowledge base about the processes and outcomes of innovative pedagogies, such as service learning, that will enable them to locate their own work in an expanding and deepening arena of inquiry. Both volumes open with chapters focused on defining the criteria for quality research. Volume 2A, then begins with research related to students, comprising chapters that focus on cognitive processes, academic learning, civic learning, personal development, and intercultural competence. The concluding faculty section presents chapters on faculty development, faculty motivation, and faculty learning. Volume 2B addresses community development, and the role of nonprofit organizations in service learning. It then focusses on institutions, examining the institutionalization of service learning, engaged departments, and institutional leadership. The final section on partnerships in service learning includes chapters on conceptualizing and measuring the quality of partnerships, inter-organizational partnerships, and student partnerships. Both volumes are also available separately.

Leistungssportlich orientiertes Training in jedem Alter erfordert eine spezielle Ernährung zur Sicherung der Belastbarkeit, Leistungsverbesserung und der Regeneration des Sportlers. Dieses Buch weist auf gesicherte Erkenntnisse in der Nahrungs- und Flüssigkeitsaufnahme des Sportlers in unterschiedlichen Sportarten hin. Bewertet wird die Zufuhr von Nahrungsergänzungsmitteln und damit erlaubter Wirkstoffe. Auf die aktuelle Dopingliste wird ebenso hingewiesen. Da es für die Ernährung Sporttreibender keine Patentrezepte gibt, finden sich hier keine üblichen Ernährungstipps oder Kochrezepte, sondern belegte Erkenntnisse aus der Ernährungsphysiologie. Der Sportler wird angehalten, aus den Erkenntnissen zum Energiestoffwechsel für sich selbst eine optimale Variante auszuwählen. Berücksichtigt wird besonders die Ernährung in Sportartengruppen beim Training und Wettkampf unter Normalbedingungen, Hitze, Kälte und in der Höhe. Tipps zur Gewichtsregulation, zu einer vegetarischen und veganen Ernährungsweise und zur Sportausübung bei Diabetes mellitus runden das Buch ab.

Frat boys who think Mario Lanza is an Italian sports car; journalists who consider "Man arrested for blowing mucus from nose at an officer" a news story . . . Welcome to Bloomington: a world of grey cells and limestone, catfish and cheerleaders, binge drinking and bigots, Ockham's razor and buzz cuts. This is the tiny college town where Alfred Kinsey catalogued gall wasps before stinging a nation into belated sexual awareness. If you're gay or Greek, love opera or hoops, Bloomington is heaven on earth; we have as many same-sex couples as sorority sisters, as many divas as athletes. Welcome to my home, a quixotic mix of small-town life and larger than life campus, squirreled away in the flatlands of Middle America, where torpor is sometimes mistaken for nirvanic serenity, irony for insult and "ethnographic dazzle" for deep differences.
