    Women of Means: The Fascinating Biographies of Royals, Heiresses, Eccentrics and Other Poor Little Rich Girls []  2020-2-2 11:54

    Cash and success don't change people; they merely amplify what is already there. But is this true? In Women of Means you are introduced to women born into luxury, riches and most of them are @#$%!es! Now you can ask which came first the chicken or the egg? If these women were born of simpler means with nurturing parents and families would their existence and wants be more gentile and altruistic? Would they rise from the ashes with a burning dedication to better themselves and society? The author portrays these women in the raw. No create up, no camera retakes. It is a fascinating look at a class of entitled spoiled women lost in their gluttony, but of conventional norms the rest of the globe is still grappling with. They marry for title, name or money. Have heightened appetites' and adventures - the women's movement dreamed of this freedom. A cycle of divorcing and hooking up again, like sipping tea. But within their craziness and maybe even because of it. society was changed and the by product was unbelievable Art, Melody Museums. international living, and lifestyles women drooled over. I am old enough to remember the wildly read gossip columns of old Hollywood. The days of Astaire and writers like Fitzgerald. Charismatic globe leaders like Nehru. Women With Means is like going through a family album and finally learning about the skeletons in the closet. Wonderfully written, its a book well worth the read.

    After reading about the incredibly horrible lives of these crazy wealthy women, I'm glad that I was born into an average family. The stories are very readable,interesting,and eye opening to the destruction too much can do to a person and their relationships. Cash really is the root of all evil. Would love to read a book about some women born or married in to amazing wealth that managed to live fulfilled and amazing lives.

    This book is perfect. A lot of books on such a multitude of people fail short of either giving you enough info to satisfy or they go all in and it becomes a challenge to retain all the info in them.What I liked about this book is that each chapter is about one woman, and gives you enough info to hold you interested, and perhaps wish to search out more, and indeed, more you can search out, as most of the people included in this book you can search stand alone biographies/memoirs about out there.Another thing I really liked about this book is that I voraciously read books of this type, and on this topic all the time, and while I had read books on a lot of of the people included in it in the past (easily search biographies on Barbara Hutton, Nica Rothschild, Almina Herbert, etc.) it still managed to contain people that I either knew virtually nothing about (Ruth Madoff, Jocelyn Wildenstein, etc.)All in all, no matter if it was a chapter about someone I had read up on or someone I had never head of before this book kept me interested, and I was sorry to [email protected]#$%!.I definitely hope this author continues to write more, and will hold an eye out for books by y want it came in a hardcover so I could contain it in my library, but paperbacks obtain so easily beat up.

    This is an perfect read. I am always interested in discovering what life can spin into the human condition. This is a fascinating topic that is usually either over exposed or covered up by the families or the media. And now I can understand why. Talk about roping the buzz on any dreams of being one of the offspring of the rich and famous. I will also add that Mrs. Wagman-Gellar is a highly readable author. She has the bonus of taking a tragic and disturbing topic and then with excellent levity deliver it to a proper level that reveals how vapid is the existence and pomposity associated with these stories of down and dirty behavior. It seems that it's very human for the public to envy amazing wealth and grand life styles. But conversely we are equally enthralled with watching "The Chosen" slowly destruct for all the globe see. I guess it create us feel better about our own ordinary lives. This book gives a street map from the beginning and to the end of these entitled woman. And my mates in almost every case "It ain't pretty."

    So a lot of times we think the grass is greener and we aspire to be or at least wish the life of wealth and privilege that the rich and popular have.Women of Means is so a lot of unknown factoids about the wealthiest women in history. Marlene starts out exploring the lives of women from Almira Carnarvon, the real-life counterpart to Lady Cora of Downton Abbey to Patty Hearst. Reading their unknown stories will leave your grateful for your life. Truly fascinating and gives so much perspective.

    If you have ever desired the live among the wealthy, reading this book might change your mind. Whether emotional, personal, or monetary wealth, all can be lost in the blink of an eye. And once you have lived in such excess, it is hard to downsize.

    This book proved beyond question that being born into amazing wealth doesn't insure a trouble-free life. It did illustrate as well that vast amounts of money can smooth out some of the rough I progressed through the stories, I was surprised, sometimes saddened, at the level of dysfunction the women experienced while they grew up. Appealing to rich potential spouses, having and social status were the main, and often only goals they were encouraged to e lives of these ultra rich and popular women were not dull, and created an interesting readMs. Wagman writes without judgement, but there is a tip of tartness here and there that created me laugh.I thoroughly enjoyed the stories and the method the book has a chapter dedicated to each heiress.

    I couldn't place the book down. I found these "poor small rich girl" stories fascinating and extremely sad. As a retired teacher, I give almost all for children's successes to amazing parenting, and likewise the blame for children's failures to not good parenting. I'm assuming these stories are well-researched and true. These stories exemplify "The love of is the root of all evil." Some of these parents were the epitome of evil in the neglect and even abuse of their children. Some survived with grace and success, but the wealth took its toll emotionally and carried on into the next generations. I cannot support but wonder, and this gives me a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach, given all the unrest in the American Congress nowadays, what would a book read like if it were about the kids of the multi-millionaire/billionaire senators and representatives who lead our country? I hope Marlene Wagman-Geller writes that book!

    This is a fast read, and does show some interesting and bizarre characters that both entertain and elicit sympathy. However, the author relies too heavily on a limited number of quotes and aphorisms. Amazing for a full afternoon.

    Songs for the Poor Man []  2020-7-28 21:27

    More than the hundreds of other African oriented cds and albums that I own, this album is one that I hold going back to for inspiration and fun. Ongala's vocals are just the hint of the iceberg on this lp. His words speak volumes as to his existence, and that of countless others around him. The passion he exudes leaves no doubt that he is fully in tune with all that is around if the lyrics weren't enough, you have the melody itself. His unbelievable blend of soukous (a common brand of East African rhythms akin to zouk melody of the Caribbean) spearheads the LIFE that permeates this album. His use of horns reminds the listener of Fela Kuti's bands of the late 70's and early 80's- the power of the horns on several of the tracks steals the ala's lps are a amazing introduction to the melody of East Africa, complete with the soukous guitar styles and horns- all commonplace in this part of the world. More importantly, this lp will bring you joy and an appreciation of music. It is the universal language, to be sure. As Frank Zappa so often said- "Music is the best!"

    Songs for the Poor Man []  2020-7-28 21:27

    I nearly fell off my chair when I first heard Ongala's music; if you're a fan of any type of World, Soukous, African or Afro-Pop melody styles, this up tempo cd is a MUST have. What makes this melody so wonderful and original is that in addition to Ongala's deeply passionate and soulful singing, it combines a magical Soukous guitar style with an almost latin/afro-cuban percussion sound. This cd also has a really amazing raw, edgy, roots type feel, at times danceable, but less commerial sounding than most contemporary Afro-Pop. Almost every song is perfect with very small filler or repetitive sounding material. Suprisingly, the All Melody Tutorial (AMG) doesn't even rank this as Ongala's best release; its hard to imagine though how Ongala could top this brilliant masterpiece! Maybe the best thing about this music, and Soukous styles in general, is how uplifting, optimistic, and hopeful it makes one feel, an instant antidote for gloom and depression. If you like Ongala, you should also definitely check out the Soukous sound of Kanda Bongo Man's titles, "Amour Fou/Crazy Love" and "Best of", more instant Prozac for the soul.

    The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women [Book]  2017-10-23 18:0

    In the early twentieth century one of the best jobs young girls and women in America could have involved something exciting and brand new: radium. Sparkling, glowing, and beautiful, radium was also, according to the companies that employed these young women, completely harmless. A century later the truth about radium and its assorted isotopes is all too well known. In The Radium Girls Kate Moore tells the story of these young women, seemingly so fortunate, who were poisoned by the jobs they felt so lucky to have.Radium was widely heralded as a wondrous fresh substance after it was first isolated by the Curies. It appeared to have an infinite number of uses, one of the first of which was to create the numbers on clocks and watches easier to see. Workers were required to coat the dials with radium paint, and the best and most efficient workers were women and girls, some as young as 14 or 15. The work was pleasant and sociable: the women sat around tables painting, moistening the thin brushes in their mouths before they dipped them into the paint, chatting, eating, and drinking while they worked, sometimes taking additional paint home with them to practice with, sometimes painting their teeth, faces, hair, and clothing to create them sparkly. When they left the studio their clothing would be covered with radium dust, and would glow ghost-like in the night. The was amazing and the work was easy, but then some of the women started having strange pains in their mouths and bones. Their teeth would loosen and fall out and their jaws, legs, and ankles would develop permanent aches or even ter some of the women died and more became ill the companies making huge profits on radium rushed to dismiss any tip that the work was unsafe. Victims and their families sought relief and assistance, but found they were responsible for their own mounting medical bills. The federal, state, and local governments all disavowed any responsibility. Eventually publicity stemming from lawsuits filed by some of the victims (using their own scanty resources) focused enough attention on the issue that governments felt compelled to set safety standards and e Radium Girls is a horrifying read. The careless ways in which radium was handled, the indifference of the radium using industries and the governments involved to the safety of the women painters (in contrast to the men who worked to produce the radium, who were protected by lead shields), and the pain and suffering of the women themselves are appalling. The safety regulations and restrictions which were finally place into put hardly seem adequate, and the Epilogue and Postscript giving info of the women's later lives, as well as an acc of another industry that created careless use of radium as late as the 1970s, are especially is is a well written, meticulously research and documented, acc of tragedies that never should have been. The radium girls' lives can't be returned to them, but thanks to Kate Moore we can remember, and learn, from their pain.

    Quite an eye-opener: 1) that radium was once considered a miracle substance, but was deadly to those who absorbed it. 2) the lengths that some businesses will go to to avoid admitting danger to workers and to avoid paying. 3) how women can be discounted and of no concern. 4) how courageous a few people need to be to lead the method to obtain justice. 5) how organizing together (and finding an attorney who will war for right) is important to search e narratives of several of the women's private lives hold this book interesting when there is danger of getting bogged down in the legalities of the story.

    One of the best books I have read in a long time! Telling the story of the Radium Girls from the standpoint of the girls/women who were victimized by corporate greed and their war for their rights was wonderful. Kate Moore brought these brave women to light in a brilliant manner. I had problem putting this book down and highly recommend it.

    The fact that this topic is interesting is the only thing this book has going for it. The images are interesting, but the book is horribly written. Grammar and punctuation errors, mixing up words (for example, using "desecrated" to mean "decimated"). The tone and style are awkward and clunky.

    The Radium GirlsA very painful read, though necessary to know this history and contemplate how familiar this story sounds. Industry focuses on business opportunities at the expense of their workers health, and even the health of their neighbors. Sound familiar? Not a lot of industries have as deadly a product as featured in this heartbreaking story, but we have witnessed this disregard for worker and public safety e material was Radium, used to paint the dials on clocks and watches so they would glow in the dark. These were immensely famous time pieces used by both soldiers and civilians. The issue was the method the Radium was applied. With brushes brought to a point by the lips of unsuspecting women (mostly) who were ingesting min quantities of the Radium with each pointing of the brush. The companies who hired these women initially seemed not to know about the danger and even felt the substance had some health inhancing properties. The issue was they were wrong and their employees started losing their teeth, parts of their jaws fell out, they had sarcomas of bone, and a lot of died at very young ages. The Radium dust was allowed everywhere, and these women wore it home on their clothes and exposed their families to the Radium. Their stories of illness and death are followed with much detail. The companies denied, and denied for decades any culpability. They hired medical doctors and other scientists to refute the claims of patients and their doctors and dentists. (Of course the perverse separation of dental health from medicine slowed down the process of coming to a causative agent.) They refused to for healthcare or disability. Ultimately they knew it was Radium poisoning and it killed scores of women in the prime of their lives. More than there had to be because of their denials.A haunting story which highlights the arrogance of companies who see their employees as expendable and are unwilling to invest in safer handling and manufacturing procedures to protect those who are in their e other problem is how frequently industry privatizes the profits but socializes the ultimate costs of their products. These women the ultimate price, they and their families. But the cities as well, for decades of cleanup work to remove the radioactive products that poisoned the soil and m's River is a amazing read about this dumping the costs in the nonradioactive chemical industry.Our government has been guilty of much hubris as well. When I was an infant in Washington state, the Atomic Energy plant at Hanford, released radioactive iodine into the air to see where it would land because they could trace it through its radioactivity. Guess what? It landed on the [email protected]#$%!&, the cows ate the grass, we drank the milk, then decades later a significant increase in thyroid cancer! Those who got it were called the " downwinders".I know of women whose fathers worked in the military and who were themselves exposed to testing of nuclear bombs in Nevada and who were created infertile because of their exposure.We must be vigilant about those who have something to gain telling us there are no risks to exposure with fresh substances. As this history shows, there is much hubris.Excellent read!

    RADIUM GIRLS is a most informative and interesting book. U.S. Radium was here in Bloomsburg and we taxpayers are paying for the cleanup to that website to the tune of $30 million. Not unlike the super fund websites all over the country left by huge anks to the Radium Girls, there are some laws to protect workers now...they did not die in vane..

    I have read this book twice and recommended it to my sister. It reads like a John Grisham novel: the diabolical company heads, the lying company doctors, the duped but likeable victims and the heroic doctors and lawyers who take up the cause for justice. Helps you understand how we have some of the workplace safety rules we take for granted today. I’m really glad I read it, and will probably read it again.

    The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women []  2019-12-22 18:35

    I just got through reading Radium Girls based the the real story of the girls and women employed to paint watch dials in the early twentieth century with an exciting and fresh product, radium. Radium sparkled, glowed, and was thought to be amazing for your health. It was heralded as the worlds newest wonder!! One of the uses was to create watches and clocks easier to see because the radium created the dial light up in the dark. Girls as young as 14 were recruited to join in on the exciting fresh job opportunity. Girls and young women sat in rows with trays of watch dials with a crucible of radium. They were taught to moisten thin brushes in their mouthes before they dipped them into the paint. They even ate at their work benches. The radium dust would cover the workers and as they walked home at night the girls would actually GLOW. Every girl wanted in on the work as it was amazing and radium was said to be amazing for your health. Small did they know that the work they were doing was eventually going to lead to their own is book is perfect and gives awesome historical background pertaining to the inauguration of workers compensation, liability, and medical advancements. It is definitely a very emotional charged book. I would highly recommend this book.

    This book is an awesome record of women involved in the craze of "the health benefits" and industrial uses of radium that occurred in the early 1920s, lasting well after WWII. They were employed in painting dials for watches and equipment with radium paint, without any knowledge of the dangers to which they were being exposed. As a effect of management's subterfuge, they were to spend years suffering from the result of radium poisoning before finally succumbing. This is the story of their war for justice in the courts, the war to stop any further needless suffering and ultimately convincing the courts that the companies should be held responsible. Kate Moore has done an awesome job of recreating their stories, with the assistance of family members, letters, diaries, medical reports, and case notes from the son of the attorney who handled their cases. Moores extensive research results in an awesome story, appalling as the facts may be. It truly is a amazing read!

    The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women []  2019-12-22 18:36

    There are no words. So a lot of emotions swirled through my head while reading The Radium Girls. I celebrated in their triumphs, cried through their pain, suffering and death, and was angered by the injustice of it all. On top of that, half of this story took put only a few miles from where I reside, in Orange, Fresh Jersey. I never knew that people could have a flippant view on human life.Let me begin by saying there is a lot of grotesque imagery in The Radium Girls. Their symptoms of radium poisoning are explained in amazing detail, and may not be suitable for most readers. I, on the other hand, thought I could obtain through it. And I did, but not without feeling some serious despair for the suffering of these women and hatred for those responsible.During WWI, radium was used in minuscule amounts as paint for clock and instrument dials for wartime. The radium in the paint allowed for these dials to glow in the dark. The job of radium dial painters was a lucrative one: single young women could create some serious money in this position. Unbeknownst to the whole world, radium was a hazardous material that would ruin these girls’ lives. They were slowly, over time, ingesting little quantities of radium, which we now know to be highly toxic to the is was a highly addicting read. I had problem putting the book down. The fact that Radium Girls read like fiction created it so much easier to understand the seriousness of this crisis. Kate Moore could have gone with a more medical or legal approach, but she wanted to best represent these women’s stories so that everyone could know their ore brought these numerous women to the forefront of this nonfiction account. Moore gave them voices so that everyone who reads this book understands just what they all went through. She did a phenomenal job writing their story and I’m sure would have created them all is book proves that everyone has a voice and the ability to war injustice regardless of all obstacles. These women could barely walk or obtain out of bed, and they managed to war their former employers in court for justice. They inspire me, and I don’t think I will ever forget their story.

    Unbelievable story telling and writing. I lost sleep over this book for two reasons. First, because it was so well written and fascinating I could not place it down and secondly because the horrors these women endured for so long was overwhelming for me. This book first caught my eye because my relative who lives in NJ, had to have part of their property cleaned up by the state of NJ due to radium dumping.

    Apparently there have been some other books written about these young women at the turn of the 20th century, who were exposed through their put of work to radium. This of course, is an element that we know now to be risky to work with. Actually, it became soon apparent to Marie Curie and her husband that radium was dangerous. They would carry rocks around in their pockets that contained radium, and soon their fingers would begin to change colors because of constant exposure. But during the early 1900's companies realized they could use radium to create things like dials and watches shine at night (in the dark), and during night time forays into battle, especially during Globe Battle I and II, this ability was invaluable for ships, for planes, for a lot of various uses when people required to see things at became obvious much later on, during the 20's and 30's that companies knew the radium was dangerous...but they neglected to warn any of their workers of this danger. Most of their workers were female, and though some of the behavior of these companies was because they didn't value the lives of their workers because they were female, some of it was simply because companies in general didn't care about anything but their profits. Other books have illustrated this in talking about miners, and other groups who were misled (including asbestos workers) as to the danger of different chemicals and things used in workplace situations.I really enjoyed this story of Moore's. She really did substantial research into the lives of these women, their homelife, their sweethearts, how they handle their illnesses and pain. These were definitely amazing women who survived wonderful horrors place on them by uncaring companies, and who stood up for what was e only things I found a small disconcerting is the amount of emotion that Moore place into the writing of this book. In some ways, her writing was more like a conversation with opinions inserted by her, rather than a more formal writing method. I'm more used to formal books about issues like these, as I read a lot about infectious diseases...and her writing threw me a e other complaint, is I expected a bit more about the development of protections for workers than the author actually gave. Because the book said on the outside that it would go into the history of laws and protections for workers, I expected more than the author actually provided. I would have like more legal info for all this...how far it's come since then.But otherwise, a very amazing read, especially as concerns unknown and fresh chemicals that we are constantly bombarded with, and the need to be careful in your exposure to them until we know how risky they are. This contains pharmaceuticsl!

    I don't read a lot of non-fiction, and I can't say why I chose this out of all the other non-fiction books. Maybe it was on sale...But regardless of the reason, I'm glad I read it. I fresh nothing of these not good woman who suffered immeasurably due to the hazards at their work and (big surprise) the greed of their e Radium Girls is the story of these girls, most of them young, in their teens and early twenties. They worked at the Radium Dial Plant in Orange NJ painting the dials on clocks with luminous paint created with radium powder. As the girls painted these dials, they were taught to wet the brushes with their mouths in to hold a fine point on the brush, ingesting radium every time they did. They didn't obtain sick right away; sometimes it would be years later, even after they'd stopped working for the company. And they didn't all obtain sick. But those that did were almost all doomed to die a very horrible death. The girl's teeth fell out and wouldn't heal, parts of their jaws fell into their mouth (can you imagine???!!!), they developed sarcomas, had miscarriages, and were in constant, poor pain. Because some of the girls became ill after leaving the plant, it took a long time to prove that the radium in the paint was the cause of the girls' illness. And even after it was shown that the radium was the cause, the company continued the same practice of having the girls dip the brushes into the paint and then smooth the brush hints with their y girls died young after long debilitating illnesses. Others were disfigured or lived in pain. One had her arm amputated which likely saved her. The suffering these girls endured was truly horrible. More horrible was the response of the plant and its owners. They lied to their employees even after it was shown that the radium paint was to blame for the girls' illnesses and deaths, they kept secret medical records they refused to share with the families or the girls themselves, and they continued to operate as they had before, with small to no regard for the safety of the girls in their employ.I do recommend this book but be prepared for some beautiful horrific descriptions of how the radium affected the various girls.

    This is one these books that will stay with you long after you finished reading it. The suffering, the indifference, the greed, the lies, the audacity... 90 years later it is still simple to imagine it event over and over again.

    The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women [Book]  2017-10-23 18:0

    I loved this book, and an necessary reason is because the author brought "The Radium Girls" gloriously alive. In the beginning of the 20th century, during WWI, watches with luminous dials were in high demand. The issue was that the glowing paint was radioactive Radium, and it was silently and lethally poisoning the young girls who worked as dial painters. As time goes by, these hard working young ladies begin getting gravely ill and dying, and even though the company knows of the dangers, it does nothing to warm or support them, for nearly half a century! The book is very well written and tells an wonderful real story. I recommend this book for readers who love non-fiction, history, and a story of brave and heroic women.

    The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women [Book]  2017-10-23 18:0

    A horrific story of corporate and governmental lack of concern for workers and everyone who came in touch with the miraculous and "safe" radium. These things are not taught in American history and have been repeated a lot of times in the name of the corporate bottom line. Radium Girls is a heart-wrenching story of a lot of satisfied young women who were poisoned and allowed to die.

    The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women []  2019-12-22 18:35

    In the early twentieth century one of the best jobs young girls and women in America could have involved something exciting and brand new: radium. Sparkling, glowing, and beautiful, radium was also, according to the companies that employed these young women, completely harmless. A century later the truth about radium and its assorted isotopes is all too well known. In The Radium Girls Kate Moore tells the story of these young women, seemingly so fortunate, who were poisoned by the jobs they felt so lucky to have.Radium was widely heralded as a wondrous fresh substance after it was first isolated by the Curies. It appeared to have an infinite number of uses, one of the first of which was to create the numbers on clocks and watches easier to see. Workers were required to coat the dials with radium paint, and the best and most efficient workers were women and girls, some as young as 14 or 15. The work was pleasant and sociable: the women sat around tables painting, moistening the thin brushes in their mouths before they dipped them into the paint, chatting, eating, and drinking while they worked, sometimes taking additional paint home with them to practice with, sometimes painting their teeth, faces, hair, and clothing to create them sparkly. When they left the studio their clothing would be covered with radium dust, and would glow ghost-like in the night. The was amazing and the work was easy, but then some of the women started having strange pains in their mouths and bones. Their teeth would loosen and fall out and their jaws, legs, and ankles would develop permanent aches or even ter some of the women died and more became ill the companies making huge profits on radium rushed to dismiss any tip that the work was unsafe. Victims and their families sought relief and assistance, but found they were responsible for their own mounting medical bills. The federal, state, and local governments all disavowed any responsibility. Eventually publicity stemming from lawsuits filed by some of the victims (using their own scanty resources) focused enough attention on the issue that governments felt compelled to set safety standards and e Radium Girls is a horrifying read. The careless ways in which radium was handled, the indifference of the radium using industries and the governments involved to the safety of the women painters (in contrast to the men who worked to produce the radium, who were protected by lead shields), and the pain and suffering of the women themselves are appalling. The safety regulations and restrictions which were finally place into put hardly seem adequate, and the Epilogue and Postscript giving info of the women's later lives, as well as an acc of another industry that created careless use of radium as late as the 1970s, are especially is is a well written, meticulously research and documented, acc of tragedies that never should have been. The radium girls' lives can't be returned to them, but thanks to Kate Moore we can remember, and learn, from their pain.

    A truly inspiring and moving story which continues to this very om the inhospitable and hazardous mountains of the Himalayas, Ruit's exploits is a journey-story in more ways than one. It took him from the risky yak tracks in the shadow of the highest peaks to the royal palaces and seats of learning of the world. It is a journey through life, beset by adversity and challenges, yet filled with dedication and love. It is the story of one man's dream to bring sight to the million of people around the globe who cannot see.While operating in makeshift theatres with plastic sheets for walls, using equipment and intraocular lens donated by other surgeons and institutions, fighting adversity along with criticism and condemnations from the establishment, Ruit performed 70 operations every day, built a hospital and numerous treatment centres across Nepal and trained tons of young surgeons in delicate eye Ruit is recognized as one of the top ophthalmic surgeons in the e story of this modest but brilliant man who rose from truly humble beginnings, is told here so eloquently by author, Ali Gripper.I found this book hard to place down.Highly, highly recommended.

    Such a rewarding, humble life Sanduk Ruit has lived. He has never sought the wealth and material rewards he could have enjoyed if he had chosen to live anywhere in the western eing the smiles on his patient’s faces when their patches were removed following surgery was always enough.His unbelievable help and love from his wife Nanda and kids will ensure his legacy will endure in Nepal.Highly recommend, well written.

    Dr. Ruit’s story is something that the globe should know, and I feel happy that Ali Gripper has taken a step to do that. Ali's eloquent writing with pertinent words paints a vivid picture in the reader’s mind. I found Ali's writing style very akin to that of J. K. Rowling and reading this book felt as captivated as Harry Potter. Ali also provides a succinct background story in every chapter about history, relationships, and culture similar to the context, which helps readers obtain a better sense of Dr. Ruit's world.I recommend this book as a must-read. You will treasure it for life.

    A truly awesome man following in the footsteps of Fred Hollows - a totally unselfish person who only ever had the complete success of his patients in regaining their eyesight which of course changed their lives so dramatically.. my only query was why were there so a lot of Nepalese/Indian people so afflicted with this not good eye condition? there was no mention of any cause - he would operate on 70 or more patients almost daily in some very ramshackle conditions in the high mountain locations of Nepal and India. All the more interesting to read about as I am about to have the same operation performed on myself within the next few months...

    Women of Means: The Fascinating Biographies of Royals, Heiresses, Eccentrics and Other Poor Little Rich Girls (Biographies of Famous People, for Readers of Lady in Waiting) []  2020-5-17 18:0

    This is an perfect read. I am always interested in discovering what life can spin into the human condition. This is a fascinating topic that is usually either over exposed or covered up by the families or the media. And now I can understand why. Talk about roping the buzz on any dreams of being one of the offspring of the rich and famous. I will also add that Mrs. Wagman-Gellar is a highly readable author. She has the bonus of taking a tragic and disturbing topic and then with excellent levity deliver it to a proper level that reveals how vapid is the existence and pomposity associated with these stories of down and dirty behavior. It seems that it's very human for the public to envy amazing wealth and grand life styles. But conversely we are equally enthralled with watching "The Chosen" slowly destruct for all the globe see. I guess it create us feel better about our own ordinary lives. This book gives a street map from the beginning and to the end of these entitled woman. And my mates in almost every case "It ain't pretty."

    Cash and success don't change people; they merely amplify what is already there. But is this true? In Women of Means you are introduced to women born into luxury, riches and most of them are @#$%!es! Now you can ask which came first the chicken or the egg? If these women were born of simpler means with nurturing parents and families would their existence and wants be more gentile and altruistic? Would they rise from the ashes with a burning dedication to better themselves and society? The author portrays these women in the raw. No create up, no camera retakes. It is a fascinating look at a class of entitled spoiled women lost in their gluttony, but of conventional norms the rest of the globe is still grappling with. They marry for title, name or money. Have heightened appetites' and adventures - the women's movement dreamed of this freedom. A cycle of divorcing and hooking up again, like sipping tea. But within their craziness and maybe even because of it. society was changed and the by product was unbelievable Art, Melody Museums. international living, and lifestyles women drooled over. I am old enough to remember the wildly read gossip columns of old Hollywood. The days of Astaire and writers like Fitzgerald. Charismatic globe leaders like Nehru. Women With Means is like going through a family album and finally learning about the skeletons in the closet. Wonderfully written, its a book well worth the read.

    I couldn't place the book down. I found these "poor small rich girl" stories fascinating and extremely sad. As a retired teacher, I give almost all for children's successes to amazing parenting, and likewise the blame for children's failures to not good parenting. I'm assuming these stories are well-researched and true. These stories exemplify "The love of is the root of all evil." Some of these parents were the epitome of evil in the neglect and even abuse of their children. Some survived with grace and success, but the wealth took its toll emotionally and carried on into the next generations. I cannot support but wonder, and this gives me a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach, given all the unrest in the American Congress nowadays, what would a book read like if it were about the kids of the multi-millionaire/billionaire senators and representatives who lead our country? I hope Marlene Wagman-Geller writes that book!

    So a lot of times we think the grass is greener and we aspire to be or at least wish the life of wealth and privilege that the rich and popular have.Women of Means is so a lot of unknown factoids about the wealthiest women in history. Marlene starts out exploring the lives of women from Almira Carnarvon, the real-life counterpart to Lady Cora of Downton Abbey to Patty Hearst. Reading their unknown stories will leave your grateful for your life. Truly fascinating and gives so much perspective.

It is a book that shares various stories about what the author called “poor small rich girls” and makes us think whether we would be satisfied if we were rich. All the chapters in this book are highly enjoyable and makes us ask questions about the rich and how they feel about their everyday lives. This book truly makes you wonder about the lives of the rich and what they had to go favorite chapter is called “A Facial Attraction” which is about a rich girl named Jocelyn Wildenstein who thought that plastic surgery that would create her more feline would please her husband since he liked lions. Obviously, this did not go well and she ended up addicted to cosmetic surgery to look even more like a cat. In the end, she divorced her husband and has a fiance named Lloyd Klein who is a designer. I thought this chapter was entertaining and a bit ironic due to the fact that she and her husband met on a safari. She is still alive today and still receives stares from the locals.I thought this book was amazing, fun to read, highly entertaining. It is a attractive piece of nonfiction and I will probably read it again someday in the near future. This book caused me to think of a lot of questions I had never thought of like “Are the rich truly happy?” or “How a lot of people have been screwed up because of money?”. If i could rate this book I would give it five stars.

    This book proved beyond question that being born into amazing wealth doesn't insure a trouble-free life. It did illustrate as well that vast amounts of money can smooth out some of the rough I progressed through the stories, I was surprised, sometimes saddened, at the level of dysfunction the women experienced while they grew up. Appealing to rich potential spouses, having and social status were the main, and often only goals they were encouraged to e lives of these ultra rich and popular women were not dull, and created an interesting readMs. Wagman writes without judgement, but there is a tip of tartness here and there that created me laugh.I thoroughly enjoyed the stories and the method the book has a chapter dedicated to each heiress.

A lot of books on such a multitude of people fail short of either giving you enough info to satisfy or they go all in and it becomes a challenge to retain all the info in them.What I liked about this book is that each chapter is about one woman, and gives you enough info to hold you interested, and perhaps wish to search out more, and indeed, more you can search out, as most of the people included in this book you can search stand alone biographies/memoirs about out there.Another thing I really liked about this book is that I voraciously read books of this type, and on this topic all the time, and while I had read books on a lot of of the people included in it in the past (easily search biographies on Barbara Hutton, Nica Rothschild, Almina Herbert, etc.) it still managed to contain people that I either knew virtually nothing about (Ruth Madoff, Jocelyn Wildenstein, etc.)All in all, no matter if it was a chapter about someone I had read up on or someone I had never head of before this book kept me interested, and I was sorry to [email protected]#$%!.I definitely hope this author continues to write more, and will hold an eye out for books by y want it came in a hardcover so I could contain it in my library, but paperbacks obtain so easily beat up.

    Women of Means: The Fascinating Biographies of Royals, Heiresses, Eccentrics and Other Poor Little Rich Girls (Biographies of Royalty, for Readers of Lady in Waiting) []  2020-5-18 18:0

    This is an perfect read. I am always interested in discovering what life can spin into the human condition. This is a fascinating topic that is usually either over exposed or covered up by the families or the media. And now I can understand why. Talk about roping the buzz on any dreams of being one of the offspring of the rich and famous. I will also add that Mrs. Wagman-Gellar is a highly readable author. She has the bonus of taking a tragic and disturbing topic and then with excellent levity deliver it to a proper level that reveals how vapid is the existence and pomposity associated with these stories of down and dirty behavior. It seems that it's very human for the public to envy amazing wealth and grand life styles. But conversely we are equally enthralled with watching "The Chosen" slowly destruct for all the globe see. I guess it create us feel better about our own ordinary lives. This book gives a street map from the beginning and to the end of these entitled woman. And my mates in almost every case "It ain't pretty."

    I couldn't place the book down. I found these "poor small rich girl" stories fascinating and extremely sad. As a retired teacher, I give almost all for children's successes to amazing parenting, and likewise the blame for children's failures to not good parenting. I'm assuming these stories are well-researched and true. These stories exemplify "The love of is the root of all evil." Some of these parents were the epitome of evil in the neglect and even abuse of their children. Some survived with grace and success, but the wealth took its toll emotionally and carried on into the next generations. I cannot support but wonder, and this gives me a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach, given all the unrest in the American Congress nowadays, what would a book read like if it were about the kids of the multi-millionaire/billionaire senators and representatives who lead our country? I hope Marlene Wagman-Geller writes that book!

    This book proved beyond question that being born into amazing wealth doesn't insure a trouble-free life. It did illustrate as well that vast amounts of money can smooth out some of the rough I progressed through the stories, I was surprised, sometimes saddened, at the level of dysfunction the women experienced while they grew up. Appealing to rich potential spouses, having and social status were the main, and often only goals they were encouraged to e lives of these ultra rich and popular women were not dull, and created an interesting readMs. Wagman writes without judgement, but there is a tip of tartness here and there that created me laugh.I thoroughly enjoyed the stories and the method the book has a chapter dedicated to each heiress.

    This review was written by my 13 year old r the past four days, I have been reading an perfect book called Woman of Means by Marlene Wagman-Geller. It is a book that shares various stories about what the author called “poor small rich girls” and makes us think whether we would be satisfied if we were rich. All the chapters in this book are highly enjoyable and makes us ask questions about the rich and how they feel about their everyday lives. This book truly makes you wonder about the lives of the rich and what they had to go favorite chapter is called “A Facial Attraction” which is about a rich girl named Jocelyn Wildenstein who thought that plastic surgery that would create her more feline would please her husband since he liked lions. Obviously, this did not go well and she ended up addicted to cosmetic surgery to look even more like a cat. In the end, she divorced her husband and has a fiance named Lloyd Klein who is a designer. I thought this chapter was entertaining and a bit ironic due to the fact that she and her husband met on a safari. She is still alive today and still receives stares from the locals.I thought this book was amazing, fun to read, highly entertaining. It is a attractive piece of nonfiction and I will probably read it again someday in the near future. This book caused me to think of a lot of questions I had never thought of like “Are the rich truly happy?” or “How a lot of people have been screwed up because of money?”. If i could rate this book I would give it five stars.

    Cash and success don't change people; they merely amplify what is already there. But is this true? In Women of Means you are introduced to women born into luxury, riches and most of them are @#$%!es! Now you can ask which came first the chicken or the egg? If these women were born of simpler means with nurturing parents and families would their existence and wants be more gentile and altruistic? Would they rise from the ashes with a burning dedication to better themselves and society? The author portrays these women in the raw. No create up, no camera retakes. It is a fascinating look at a class of entitled spoiled women lost in their gluttony, but of conventional norms the rest of the globe is still grappling with. They marry for title, name or money. Have heightened appetites' and adventures - the women's movement dreamed of this freedom. A cycle of divorcing and hooking up again, like sipping tea. But within their craziness and maybe even because of it. society was changed and the by product was unbelievable Art, Melody Museums. international living, and lifestyles women drooled over. I am old enough to remember the wildly read gossip columns of old Hollywood. The days of Astaire and writers like Fitzgerald. Charismatic globe leaders like Nehru. Women With Means is like going through a family album and finally learning about the skeletons in the closet. Wonderfully written, its a book well worth the read.

    This is a fast read, and does show some interesting and bizarre characters that both entertain and elicit sympathy. However, the author relies too heavily on a limited number of quotes and aphorisms. Amazing for a full afternoon.

    How Medicaid Fails the Poor (Encounter Broadsides) []  2020-2-2 4:18

    The book is basically a lit review of a number of studies showing the lack of efficacy of medicaid In to prove a case for reform. Unfortunately, Roy doesn't go into the info of the methodologies of the studies, nor does he show and discuss studies with which he disagrees. For example, Roy refers to (I won't say cites because he provides no footnotes or bibliography) a lot of studies showing medicaid patients are worse off than those without health insurance. However, much of the medicaid population is sicker/leads less healthy lives, etc. Roy accounts for this with a single sentence saying that the studies "controlled" for this, but no details. How is the statistical power of the study affected? What are the confidence intervals of the results? In the Oregon study, only 60% who won the lottery took the medicaid. Why? Likely it's because the other 40% were reasonably healthy and they saw no benefit. Therefore two conclusions could follow: 1) The customer service of medicaid is sufficiently not good that it's not worth signing up for the program if one is healthy and 2) the people who would go through the problem of signing up are sufficiently sick to be motivated to do so. Given this, it would naturally follow that medicaid patients would have worse outcomes, especially given the restricted networks and not good reimbursement rates Roy l in all, it's a missed opportunity for a dive into the details. The effect makes the book a one sided argument not very likely to convince believers in the medicaid model that it's so fundamentally broken.

    This small book explains medicaid does not provide for not good families because most doctors will not accept it yet Obamacare provided for the EXPANSION of this costly and failed program. Instead of medicaid , the author said the whole program could be replaced with another more effective program by Dr Lee Gross Ephihany Health Plan add a catastrophic plan and it would still be 42% less than the obamacare expansion plan. Loyd Eskildson 5 star review discusses this plan in more detail . I help his review as well.

    If the assertions in this book are even close to being true, then why the citizenry would even let Medicaid to exist allow alone be expanded defies comprehension. Where are the outcries from those that claim to care for the less fortunate? Are they bankrupt regarding ideas and have no alternative other than committing vast resources to a program that serves the government better than the recipients? Disgusting.

    It doesn't take a 1000 pages to point out the flaws in Medicaid. This doesn't beat the topic to death but does give several locations where it doesn't work and points out why the issue can only obtain worse. You take a stressed system, throw in a ton more people, overwork the people who are already the caregivers and tell them they have to work harder for less money. Not a recipe for success. The greatest health system in the history of the globe and we are determined to slay it. The largest lie is that having a Medicaid card is the same thing as having health care. Ask anyone within the system already and they can tell you what a joke that is.

    Songs for the Poor Man [Vinyl] []  2020-7-28 21:27

    More than the hundreds of other African oriented cds and albums that I own, this album is one that I hold going back to for inspiration and fun. Ongala's vocals are just the hint of the iceberg on this lp. His words speak volumes as to his existence, and that of countless others around him. The passion he exudes leaves no doubt that he is fully in tune with all that is around if the lyrics weren't enough, you have the melody itself. His unbelievable blend of soukous (a common brand of East African rhythms akin to zouk melody of the Caribbean) spearheads the LIFE that permeates this album. His use of horns reminds the listener of Fela Kuti's bands of the late 70's and early 80's- the power of the horns on several of the tracks steals the ala's lps are a amazing introduction to the melody of East Africa, complete with the soukous guitar styles and horns- all commonplace in this part of the world. More importantly, this lp will bring you joy and an appreciation of music. It is the universal language, to be sure. As Frank Zappa so often said- "Music is the best!"

    I nearly fell off my chair when I first heard Ongala's music; if you're a fan of any type of World, Soukous, African or Afro-Pop melody styles, this up tempo cd is a MUST have. What makes this melody so wonderful and original is that in addition to Ongala's deeply passionate and soulful singing, it combines a magical Soukous guitar style with an almost latin/afro-cuban percussion sound. This cd also has a really amazing raw, edgy, roots type feel, at times danceable, but less commerial sounding than most contemporary Afro-Pop. Almost every song is perfect with very small filler or repetitive sounding material. Suprisingly, the All Melody Tutorial (AMG) doesn't even rank this as Ongala's best release; its hard to imagine though how Ongala could top this brilliant masterpiece! Maybe the best thing about this music, and Soukous styles in general, is how uplifting, optimistic, and hopeful it makes one feel, an instant antidote for gloom and depression. If you like Ongala, you should also definitely check out the Soukous sound of Kanda Bongo Man's titles, "Amour Fou/Crazy Love" and "Best of", more instant Prozac for the soul.

    How Medicaid Fails the Poor (Encounter Broadsides) []  2020-2-2 4:18

    I'm reading Avik Roy's book (pamphlet) on Medicaid. I have some powerful opinions on this topic. In 1965, when Medicare and Medicaid became law, I was a medical student at the Los Angeles County Hospital. My experience has been that the huge town hospitals that once served as the safety net for the urban poor, were devastated by the fresh law. Medicaid (MediCal in California) would not for care in the County hospital where resident physicians were often the providers. I knew men who quit their residencies to begin MediCal ars later, after I had done a graduate program at Dartmouth, I asked permission of the fresh MediCal administrator to study the results of an HMO model vs a fee for service model. I had the funding and the academic support. Permission was e author does an perfect job of describing the evolution of Medicaid and the effects on the poor. I have never changed my mind about the benefits of the previous model, using huge community teaching hospitals to treat the poor. Medicaid promised them "mainstream personal care" which they have never had and will not have under Obamacare. A lot of basic care docs I knew when I was in practice would treat Medicaid patients and never bill the system because the payment was so not good and it took two years to obtain paid. They were in practice in a prosperous community. A lot of inner town docs had no choice but were unable to provide amazing quality care. Medicaid was never a true choice for the d acc and well worth reading. His latest section advocates a shop system for the Medicaid population. I tend to doubt its efficacy and think the primary safety net would be stronger in a system that included teaching hospitals and clinics. There is a reason most not good people are poor. For years after Medicaid began we would obtain patients coming to the County Hospital clinics for a second opinion, then going back to the personal second rate hospital because of the amenities. They trusted us but liked the semi-private room.

    How Medicaid Fails the Poor (Encounter Broadsides) []  2020-2-2 4:18

    Roy begins with the 2006 story of 7th-grader Deamonte Driver, who died of a toothache in one of the wealthiest counties in America. Several months after Deamonte complained of pain, his mother was able to search a dentist that would see him. After being told he required to see an oral surgeon, several more months passed by before he could be seen Meanwhile, the infection from one of his abscessed teeth spread to his brain. Despite emergency brain surgery, Deamonte died - despite being on icaid cost over $450 billion in 2013. Study after study shows that patients on Medicaid do no better, and often do worse, than those with no insurance at all. Medicaid was burdened by the stigma of public assistance and allowing states to decide how extensive their programs would e percentage of Medicaid spending that the federal government will sponsor varies depending on the relative wealth of a given state. Washington provides 73% of Medicaid funds in Mississippi, 50% in the wealthiest states such as Fresh York and Massachusetts. The median state is funded at 60%. To hold Medicaid costs in check, some states hospitals and doctors less. A total of 39 states restricted provider rates in fiscal year 2011, and 46 states reported plans to do so in fiscal year 2012. The average state pays a primary-care physician 52 cents for every dollar that a personal insurer pays. Fresh York and Rhode Island 29%, Fresh Jersey 32%, D.C. 38%, Minnesota 46%, and Michigan 47%. Thus, primary-care doctors are 73% more likely to reject Medicaid patients relative to those who are privately insured, and professionals were 63% more likely. In Fresh Jersey, 60% of physicians were unwilling to accept fresh Medicaid patients, California 43%, and Fresh York 38%.A 2011 study found that doctors asked for appointments for a kid with acute asthma attacks or a broken forearm would deny an appointment 66% of the time, vs. only 11% if told the patient had personal insurance. Average wait time for an appointment was 22 days the early 2000s, Oregon had randomly offered Medicaid coverage to 30,000 residents, leaving tens of thousands still uninsured. By tracking these fresh patients over time, it was possible to assess whether or not Medicaid was making its enrollees healthier. In 2011, economists who were studying this released their initial findings. While too early to measure effects on objective health measures, patients told the researchers they felt better. However, the study did not detect any change in mortality. However, the researchers also noted that two-thirds of the improvement in patients' self-reported health took put 'about one month after coverage was approved' but before the patients had seen a single doctor or consumed any health care services. When the following July came around and it was time to publish the two-year results, the researchers were silent. Finally, on 5/1/2013, the NEJM published the findings. It had generated no significant improvement in measured physical health outcomes. Further, out of the 35,169 individuals who 'won' the lottery tot enroll in Medicaid, only 60% actually bothered to fill out the app and only half those who applied end up enrolling.Turns out that the true benefit is that health insurance protects policy-holders from catastrophic financial loss - like fire and auto ncierge doctors in the Epiphany Health Plan charge $80/month, whether you see them or not, with spouses another $69/month and $49/month for each child. That would eliminate the need to find for a provider when someone of small means needs care. The dirty secret of Medicaid is that they clog emergency rooms because they can't persuade regular doctors to see them. The author proposes giving every Medicaid patient the Epiphany plan, plus a $2,500/year catastrophic plan to protect versus financial ruin. The total annual cost would be $3,460/person, 42% less than what Obamacare's Medicaid expansion costs.

    The best method to undermine an argument is to couch it in partisan politics. One would think the author might consider forgoing the political hatchet given his professed concern for the poor, or at least the not good taxpayer. The punchline apparently is to place millions of people into an unproven healthcare program and hope for the best. Are we to believe politicians were irresponsible not to abandon a known flawed system and not embrace an unproven one ? Even the twenty mins to read this work was a waste of time.

    After reading Roy's long column (it's really too skimpy to call it a book), I can agree with him that Medicaid isn't doing the job and should be replaced. However, the book gave just a few pages to how to replace it. I was left really wanting more.
