Damage Control #1

Publisher: Jo Raven
Das bin ich: Micah Owens. Tätowierer im Damage Control. Keine Eltern oder Geschwister. Eine Vergangenheit, die mir immer noch Alpträume beschert. Und dann ist da noch sie: Evangeline, das Mädchen, das mein Leben gerettet hat und mich in meinen angenehmeren Träumen besucht. Nur weiß sie nicht, wer ich wirklich bin, und ihr das zu sagen, könnte sie schreiend davonrennen lassen. Sie verdient etwas Besseres als einen Versager wie mich. Sie ist hübsch. Sie ist clever. Sie ist gottverdammt sexy und hat ein Herz aus Gold. Deswegen kann ich es ihr nicht sagen. Ein Lächeln von ihr und ich würde alles tun, was ich kann, um sie zu meinem Mädchen zu machen – wie vorzugeben, jemand anderes zu sein. Jemand, der ihrer würdig ist. Ist Liebe nicht seltsam?
Damage Control Reihe 3

Das Leben ist ein Miststück. Es verpasst mir immer wieder einen rechten Haken, und ich stecke einen Schlag nach dem anderen ein, beiße die Zähne zusammen, zeige ihm den Mittelfinger. Aber versteht mich nicht falsch: Ich liebe Frauen. Eine insbesondere – Madeline. Sie ist umwerfend, sie ist sexy, einfach perfekt. Und – winziges Detail – sie hat bereits einen Freund. Als ob sie etwas mit jemandem wie mir zu tun haben wollte. Ein Tätowierer in Ausbildung, ehemaliger Obdachloser, bedeckt mit Tattoos, ohne einen einzigen Cent in der Tasche. Und irgendwie verflucht. Ich meine, ich müsste schon Glück haben, überhaupt irgendeinem Mädchen über den Weg zu laufen, bei all den Abstechern ins Krankenhaus, die mir das Leben entgegenschleudert. Aber ich habe kein Glück. Das hatte ich nie. Sieht auch nicht danach aus, als würde sich das in nächster Zeit ändern. Bis zu dem Tag, als ich auf das Mädchen meiner Träume treffe, besser gesagt auf ihr Auto. Das Leben hasst mich, und wenn das mal kein eindeutiges Zeichen ist, dann weiß ich auch nicht.

"Dugoni centers a high-speed murder mystery around infidelity and jealousy . . . the plot twists keep the pages turning." - Kirkus "Fast-moving...will surprise even seasoned thriller readers." -Publishers Weekly Attorney Dana Hill is used to managing a stressful life: she's one of the most successful lawyers at Strong & Thurmond, mother to a young daughter, wife to a busy, self-involved man. But when she is diagnosed with breast cancer, and her twin brother turns up beaten to death in an apparent robbery-gone-wrong in the same week, the careful balance of Dana's life is sent into flux. Agreeing with the police that this is more than just a simple botched burglary, she begins to sift through the pieces of her brother's life, a life she thought she knew as well as her own, to find out who would want him dead and why. But bad things happen in threes, her mother has told her. When Dana discovers her husband cheating, she throws herself headlong into the investigation. Delaying cancer treatment, she teams with an intuitive detective to find the link between a one-of-a-kind earring found in her brother's bedroom and a mysterious girlfriend no one seems to be able to identify. But those connected to the murder are beginning to turn up dead, the evidence trail is growing cold and someone is masquerading as a police officer, cleaning up the details as they go along.

This book is an unparalleled source of cutting-edge information on every aspect of rescue, trauma management, and fracture care in the polytrauma/multiple injured patient. Damage control surgery is approached logically and systematically by dividing treatment into phases. The common goal of treating life-threatening conditions first, then treating major pelvic and extremity fractures, requires cooperation among all major disciplines and subspecialties involved in the care of polytrauma patients, and the book is accordingly multidisciplinary in nature. It is edited by pioneers in the field and the authors are all acclaimed experts. This second, revised and updated edition of Damage Control Management in the Polytrauma Patient will be invaluable for all clinicians who must weigh life-saving operations against limb-threatening conditions, including emergency personnel, trauma surgeons, orthopaedic traumatologists, and anesthesiologists.

The types of damage caused by wildlife are many and varied, and can be costly and far-reaching. Until now, there has been little effort to identify and evaluate generalities across that broad range of species, methods and topics. Wildlife Damage Control promotes principle-based thinking about managing impact. It documents and discusses the key principles underlying wildlife damage and its control, and demonstrates their application to real-life topics – how they have been used in management actions or how they could be tested in the future. It synthesises the wide but diffuse literature dealing with the impacts of vertebrate pests and encourages readers to adopt a more theoretical framework for thinking about pest impacts and ways to manage them. The book is organised around key principles that apply across species, rather than looking at individual species, and is damage-based not pest animal-based. Within each chapter there are exercises designed to help readers learn and evaluate key principles. Conservation biologists, ecologists and others involved in wildlife management will find the sections covering principles in biodiversity conservation, of production such as agriculture, and in human and animal health of real value.
An Evolving Comprehensive Team Approach
Author: Juan Duchesne,Kenji Inaba,Mansoor Ali Khan
This book describes current, evidence-based guidelines for damage control interventions across the field of trauma care with the aim of enabling clinicians to apply them to best effect in daily clinical practice. Emphasis is placed on the need for trauma surgeons and their teams to recognize that optimal damage control in severely traumatized patients depends upon the combination of immediate assessment, resuscitation, and correct surgical management. The book opens by examining the evolution of damage control and the very significant impact that military damage control interventions have had on civilian emergency health care through improvements as simple as bandaging and tourniquets. Damage control measures in different specialties, including neurosurgery, orthopedics, vascular surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, anesthesia, and critical care, are then covered in detail. Readers will also find helpful information on a range of other important topics, such as the role of pre-hospital care providers, damage control within the emergency department, adjuncts of damage control, and damage control in austere environments. This book is a ‘must read’ for all clinicians in the trauma field.

"Dermont's short story collection, which follows her debut novel (The Starboard Sea, 2012), demonstrates the author's versatility and sardonic humor...Dermont delivers strong prose and intriguing characters who frequently defy stereotypical ideals...the overall effect is a tight collection that takes the reader in unexpected, often disconcerting, directions.

In "Damage Control," a young man works at an etiquette school while his girlfriend is indicted for embezzlement. A widow rents herself to elderly women and vacations with them as a "professional grandchild" in "Stella at the Winter Palace."

How to Stop Making Jesus Look Bad
Author: Dean Merrill
Publisher: Baker Books
People don't like Christians. It's a sad fact, but it's true. Instead of being seen as representatives of a loving God, Christians are often seen as narrow-minded, exclusionary, or pushy. In Damage Control, Dean Merrill examines what Christians can do to stop making Jesus look bad. "Let's shine a light on what we're doing wrong--and what we, as 'field reps,' could do better," he says. In three parts, Merrill looks at God's "shaky plan"--why God left his reputation in the hands of fallible humans--the ways we hurt God's cause without realizing it, and the ways we can help God's cause. This insightful and energizing book will show Christians how to engage in spiritual disciplines, peaceful practices, and evangelism to represent Christ for who he really is.

No one knows this better than Eric Dezenhall and John Weber, who help companies, politicians, and celebrities get out of various kinds of trouble. In this brutally honest and eye-opening guide, they take you behind the scenes of some of the biggest public relations successes—and debacles—of modern business, politics, and entertainment. You’ll discover: • Why the 1982 Tylenol cyanide-poisoning case is always cited as the best model for damage control, when in fact it has no relevance to the typical corporate crisis. • Why Audi never fully recovered from driver accusations of “sudden acceleration”—despite evidence that nothing was wrong with their cars. • What the crises faced by George W. Bush, Jim McGreevey, Sammy Sosa, Lance Armstrong, Martha Stewart, Coca-Cola, and the Catholic Church have in common . . . and what they don’t. This new revised edition includes an additional chapter "Our Permanent Leakocracy" including information about WikiLeaks and what that notorious case means for business.
