The ML-CDS papers discuss machine learning on multimodal data sets for clinical decision support and treatment planning. The CLIP workshops provides a forum for work centered on specific clinical applications, including techniques and procedures based on comprehensive clinical image and other data.
Health care in the twenty-first century requires intensive use of technology in order to acquire and analyze data and manage and disseminate information. No area is more data intensive than the neurointensive care unit. Despite the massive amount of data, however, providers often lack interpretable and actionable information. This book reviews the concepts underlying the emerging field of neurocritical care informatics, with a focus on integrated data acquisition, linear and nonlinear processing, and innovative visualization in the ICU. Subjects addressed in individual chapters are thus wide ranging and encompassing...
The book begins with a refresher of basic descriptive immunology and soon moves to concepts such as TRALI, transfusion reactions, alloimmunization, TRIM, complications to transplantation, HLA-incompatibility, responses in adults versus neonate/pediatric patients and more, even including state-of-the-art topics such as polyclonal/monoclonal therapies and CAR T. The authors encourage readers to see these chapters as their effort to increase levels of awareness of blood usage and use what is learned from what is described to continue to make transfusions safer.

Behind those numbers, which are significant among the students and alumni of the DM Programs, are real stories of people, their aspirations, struggles, failures, successes, and hopes. In their narratives, we can find the lived experiences of people being transformed...
An accessible history of multilateralism from its origins in the 1800s to the present Multilateralism has long been a study of contrasts. Nationalist impulses, diverging and shifting goals, and a lack of enforcement methods have plagued the international organizations that facilitate multilateralism. Yet the desire to seek peace, reduce poverty, and promote the global health of people and the planet pushes states to work together. These challenges, across time and the globe, have brought about striking, yet diverging, results. Here, Kathryn Lavelle offers a history of multilateralism from its origins in the nineteenth century to the present. Lavelle focuses on the creation and evolution of major problem-solving organizations, examines the governmental challenges they have confronted and continue to face from both domestic and transnational constituencies, and considers how nongovernmental organizations facilitate their work. Comprehensive and narrative-driven, this book should appeal to students with interests in global development, public health, the environment, trade, international finance, humanitarian law, and security studies.]]>
This volume gathers an array of voices to tell the stories of Cleveland's twentieth century Jewish community. Strong and stable after an often turbulent century, the Jews of Cleveland had both deep ties in the region and an evolving and dynamic commitment to Jewish life. The authors present the views and actions of community leaders and everyday Jews who embodied that commitment in their religious participation, educational efforts, philanthropic endeavors, and in their simple desire to live next to each other in the city's eastern suburbs. The twentieth century saw the move of Cleveland's Jews out of the center of the city, a move that only served to increase the density of Jewish life. The essays collected here draw heavily on local archival materials and present the area's Jewish past within the context of American and American Jewish studies.
Kaum eine Familie spiegelt die Geschichte der deutschen Juden des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts in allen ihren Facetten, vom Glanz des Aufstiegs ins Bürgertum bis zur Verfolgung und Ermordung der europäischen Juden, so deutlich wie die der Scholems.
Ihre Geschichte beginnt in Schlesien: Von dort zogen die Scholems Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts nach Berlin und eröffneten eine Druckerei, mit der sie es zu einigem Wohlstand brachten. Arthur und Betty Scholem hatten vier Söhne, die alle einen unterschiedlichen Weg einschlugen: Reinhold, 1891 geboren, wurde im Kaiserreich zum deutschnationalen Juden; Erich, Jahrgang 1893, zum nationalliberalen, assimilierten Juden; Werner Scholem, 1895 in Berlin geboren, wurde zu einem prominenten Vertreter eines linken Sozialismus und saß in der Weimarer Republik für die KPD im Reichstag. Gerhard Scholem schließlich, 1897 geboren, bekannte sich früh zum Zionismus, lernte Hebräisch und wanderte 1923 nach Palästina aus, wo er als Gershom Scholem einer der bedeutendsten Forscher jüdischer Mystik wurde.
Depression has colonized the world. Today, more than 300 million of us have been diagnosed as depressed. But 150 years ago, "depression" referred to a mood, not a sickness. Does that mean people weren't sick before, only sad? Of course not. Mental illness is a complex thing, part biological, part social, its definition dependent on time and place. But in the mid-twentieth century, even as European empires were crumbling, new Western clinical models and treatments for mental health spread across the world. In so doing, "depression" began to displace older ideas like "melancholia," the Japanese "utsush?," or the Punjabi "sinking heart" syndrome. Award-winning historian Jonathan Sadowsky tells this global story, chronicling the path-breaking work of psychiatrists and pharmacists, and the intimate sufferings of patients. Revealing the continuity of human distress across time and place, he shows us how different cultures have experienced intense mental anguish, and how they have tried to alleviate it. He reaches an unflinching conclusion: the devastating effects of depression are real. A number of treatments do reduce suffering, but a permanent cure remains elusive. Throughout the history of depression, there have been overzealous promoters of particular approaches, but history shows us that there is no single way to get better that works for everyone. Like successful psychotherapy, history can liberate us from the negative patterns of the past.
This book introduces the idea of anthroponomy - the organization of humankind to support autonomous life - as a response to the problems of today's purported "Anthropocene" age. It argues for a specific form of accountability for the redressing of planetary-scaled environmental problems. The concept of anthroponomy helps confront geopolitical history shaped by the social processes of capitalism, colonialism, and industrialism, which have resulted in our planetary situation. Involving Anthroponomy in the Anthropocene: On Decoloniality explores how mobilizing our engagement with the politics of our planetary situation can come from moral relations. This book focuses on the anti-imperial work of addressing unfinished decolonization, and hence involves the "decolonial" work of cracking open the common sense of the world that supports ongoing colonization. "Coloniality" is the name for this common sense, and the discourse of the "Anthropocene" supports it. A consistent anti-imperial and anti-capitalist politics, one committed to equality and autonomy, will problematize the Anthropocene through decoloniality. Sometimes the way forward is the way backward. Written in a novel style that demonstrates - not simply theorizes - moral relatedness, this book makes a valuable contribution to the fields of Anthropocene studies, environmental studies, decolonial studies, and social philosophy.
The expectation for fathers to be more involved with parenting their children and pitching in at home are higher than ever, yet broad social, political, and economic changes have made it more difficult for low-income men to be fathers. In It's a Setup, Timothy Black and Sky Keyes ground a moving and intimate narrative in the political and economic circumstances that shape the lives of low-income fathers. Based on 138 life history interviews, they expose the contradiction that while the norms and expectations of father involvement have changed rapidly within a generation, labor force and state support for fathering on the margins has deteriorated. Tracking these life histories, they move us through the lived experiences of job precarity, welfare cuts, punitive child support courts, public housing neglect, and the criminalization of poverty to demonstrate that without transformative systemic change, individual determination is not enough. Fathers on the social and economic margins are setup to fail.
It is precisely the end of "the damned circumstance of Cuban exceptionalism" –which must come sooner rather than later– that puts the course of Cuban literature in incognito. The damn circumstance. Essays on Cuban culture questions, from different perspectives, the concepts of "Cubanness" and "exceptionality" whose intersection has marked, perhaps far beyond what is desired, the Cuban literary production of the last six decades, and does so taking as a reference the not too distant future of Cuban literature, when its character of exceptionality has ceased to be its main center of gravity.
Seventy-five years after the Holocaust, 100,000 Jews live in Germany. Their community is diverse and vibrant, and their mere presence in Germany is symbolically important. In Rebuilding Jewish Life in Germany, scholars of German-Jewish history, literature, film, television, and sociology illuminate important aspects of Jewish life in Germany from 1949 to the present day. In West Germany, the development of representative bodies and research institutions reflected a desire to set down roots, despite criticism from Jewish leaders in Israel and the Diaspora. In communist East Germany, some leftist Jewish intellectuals played a prominent role in society, and their experience reflected the regime's fraught relationship with Jewry. Since 1990, the growth of the Jewish community through immigration from the former Soviet Union and Israel have both brought heightened visibility in society and challenged preexisting notions of Jewish identity in the former "land of the perpetrators."
Minds are rhetorical. From the moment we are born others are shaping our capacity for mental agency. As a meditation on the nature of human thought and action, this book starts with the proposition that human thinking is inherently and irreducibly social, and that the long rhetorical tradition in the West has been a neglected source for thinking about cognition. Each chapter reflects on a different dimension of human thought based on the fundamental proposition that our rhetoric thinks and acts with and through others.

Children's rights appear universal, inalienable, and indivisible, intended to advance young people's interests. Yet, in practice, evidence suggests the contrary: the international framework of treaties, procedures, and national policies contains fundamental contradictions that weaken commitments to children's real-world protections. Brian Gran helps us understand what is at stake when children's rights are compromised. This insightful text grounds readers in core theories and key data about children's legal entitlements. The chapters tackle central questions about what rights accrue to young people, whether they advance equality, and how they influence children's identities, freedoms, and societal participation. Ultimately, this book shows how current frameworks hinder young people from possessing and benefiting from human rights, arguing that they function as cynical invitations to question whether we truly believe children are endowed with human rights. The Sociology of Children's Rights offers a critical and accessible introduction to understanding a complex issue in the contemporary world, and is a compelling read for students and researchers concerned with human rights in sociology, political science, law, social work, and childhood studies.
