The compelling, beautiful narrative of Code Name God is one man's rags-to-riches story and, more profoundly, the vision of a world-class physicist seeking to integrate the findings of science, religion, and spiritual quest. Born in the impoverished Indian province of Bengal, Dr. Mani Bhaumik became a scientist and co-invented the laser technology that made LASIK surgery possible. Upon realizing that fame and fortune could not provide him with the abiding happiness that we all seek, Dr. Bhaumik began the search for a deeper understanding of spirituality. Code Name God chronicles the amazing life of a man who is from both the East and the West and who finally discovers that "happiness is an inside job". This book's prologue is read by Academy Award-winning actor Sir Ben Kingsley. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stefan Rudnicki, Ben Kingsley.

Sumiko Tan wrote her first personal column as a young reporter in 1994. Over the next 22 years, her fortnightly column in The Sunday Times gathered a faithful readership and made her a household name. With heartfelt honesty, her columns chronicled the ups and downs of singlehood, working life, and, when it finally happened when she was 46, married life. Sundays with Sumiko is a collection of her most representative columns over the past two decades, exploring family, love, friends, career, dogs, death, and marriage. The audiobook follows Sumiko’s journey from horizon-broadening travels and singlehood woes of the '90s, to musings about romance and aging in the '00s, to an exciting reunion with a junior-college friend that culminated in marriage. In the last section of the audiobook, "Now", Sumiko explores married life, negotiates her new role as a stepmum, and reaffirms the importance of everyday moments of happiness. Her columns also explore the lighter side of things: whether it is learning to swim as an adult, waxing nostalgic about Yaohan supermarket, finally getting Lasik eye surgery, or the woes of having different air-conditioning preferences from her husband. 1.

A teacher mentality often pervades every aspect of a teacher's life: early mornings, evenings, weekends, and even nightly dreams. The truth is that teaching professionals often spend more hours with other people's children than do the children's parents and caregivers. They have dealt with parents who are needy, controlling, competitive, demanding, disrespectful, enabling and enabled, hovering, and those who only see their children through rose-colored, Lasik-surgery eyes. There is no doubt that Cheryl and Jan can certainly commiserate with the numerous student and/or parent meetings all teachers have endured throughout the years in which they have had to silently nod or shake their heads in acknowledgment of what was being discussed, as seemingly tangible bubbles of disbelief formed in their brains. And so was born Teachers: Have You Ever? Teachers: Have You Ever? is a compilation of quips and stories, many of them unbelievably believable, that serve as an outlet for fellow teachers, teacher assistants, administrators, administrative assistants - and virtually anyone who works with children in a school setting - to be entertained, to laugh, to commiserate, and to identify and connect with the unique perspective of educators. It will also allow parents, grandparents, and anyone who has ever been in a classroom to gain a unique perspective, mostly through humor, of the challenges teachers experience every day. 1.

Lasik Eye Surgery Explained - How to Tell If Lasik Eye Surgery Is for You ab 1.49 EURO
Trans PRK is a type of refractive surgery that can correct vision problems and eliminate the need for glass or contact lenses. It's fast-even faster than LASIK. Dr. Katzman said it takes less than five minutes per eye. The procedure itself is also easier to tolerate/less painful than LASIK. Results are long-lasting. One Trans PRK treatment may be all you need for your lifetime, depending on how old you are at your first treatment. Some people need a follow-up "enhancement" procedure, but oftentimes it's needed in only one of the eyes. It's an effective option for anyone who isn't an ideal candidate for LASIK surgery or other refractive eye procedures. Unlike LASIK, there's no risk of corneal flap complications (because there is no flap).
This richly illustrated book is intended as a gold standard for the refractive surgeon. It complements the authors' successful previous book, Management of Complications in Refractive Surgery, by providing detailed practical information on the management of specific cases. Worldwide leaders in the field document a wide range of challenging cases drawn from their own clinical practice. These cases relate to the planning of refractive laser treatment, intra operative complications when using LASIK (Microkeratome and Femtosecond) and various surface treatments, including PRK, PTK and EpiLASIK, early and late postoperative complications with these treatments and a range of other complications that may arise during or after refractive surgery. This book will be an indispensable aid for the refractive surgeon and will assist in decision making when the surgeon is confronted by a difficult case.
