Talking Through Death examines communication at the end-of-life from several different communication perspectives: interpersonal (patient, provider, family), mediated, and cultural. By studying interpersonal and family communication, cultural media, funeral related rituals, religious and cultural practices, medical settings, and legal issues surrounding advance directives, readers gain insight into the ways symbolic communication constructs the experience of death and dying, and the way meaning is infused into the process of death and dying. The book looks at the communication-related health and social issues facing people and their loved ones as they transition through the end of life experience. It reports on research recently conducted by the authors and others to create a conversational, narrative text that helps students, patients, and medical providers understand the symbolism and construction of meaning inherent in end-of-life communication.

This edited collection explores the axis where monstrosity and borderlands meet to reflect the tensions, apprehensions, and excitement over the radical changes of the early modern era. The book investigates the monstrous as it acts in liminal spaces in the Renaissance and the era of Enlightenment. Zones of interaction include chronological change – from the early New World encounters through the seventeenth century – and cultural and scientific changes, in the margins between national boundaries, and also cultural and intellectual boundaries.

The twisty roads—and twisted tales—of the Appalachian Mountains make for distracted driving in western Pennsylvania. Ghostly travelers are said to wander the lonely roads of western Pennsylvania. A creeping fog rises from Blue Mist Road, and stories of car crashes, lynchings and even strange beasts haunt this isolated stretch outside Pittsburgh. Is it the angry spirit of a jealous husband or a gypsy king who stalks Erie County’s Axe Murder Hollow? Shades of Death Road in Washington County may be host to phantom coal miners killed during a deadly labor dispute. With firsthand accounts and historical research, authors Thomas White and Tony Lavorgne travel the backcountry roads and byways of western Pennsylvania to discover their ghost tales and mysterious legends. Includes photos! “The authors include a history of each road along with the supernatural legends and other unexplained activity. Surprisingly, they are able to provide possible explanations for most of the alleged hauntings, but admit that they cannot account for every one, which allows the roads in question to keep their allure and spooky possibilities.” —PopCultureGuy

During the BP oil leak of 2010 while the "experts" were frantically working on a solution to stop the flow, thousands of people were offered solutions. One suggestion came from a plumber named Joe Caldart, but since he wasn't a scientist with a PhD, his plan was dismissed outright. Only when a professor of engineering at Berkeley and former Shell executive recognized the validity of his idea and passed it on to BP, did they listen. Six weeks later a strikingly similar design was lowered onto the Macondo well, and the eighty-seven-day crisis ended. In this age of technology, experts, studies, and the media, more young people than ever are attending college and more degrees are being conferred every year, but with all the degrees conferred and the numbers in academia soaring, it is prudent to examine not only what is being taught and how, but also its effect on society and the culture. We are constantly bombarded with studies and so-called expert opinions that are contradictory, controversial, and ineffective. Explanations of current events are accepted at face value by the common man of today because they are informed by "experts in the field." In Shmexperts: How Ideology and Power Politics are Disguised as Science Marc E. Fitch examines the modern myth of experts in today's twenty-four hour media cycle and explains why viewers, readers, and average Joe's should do their own research too. In understanding the underlying philosophy and motivation of these experts and the media that promote them, we will gain greater insight and critical thinking skills by which to determine whether or not an expert as cited in the media is a true expert or an agenda-driven shmexpert. In this brilliantly insightful book Fitch warns of the frightening prospect of a society led into intellectual complacency by relying on mass-media manipulation and the bureaucratization of knowledge. Shmexperts explores the philosophy inherent in the media's reliance on and use of experts and its negative influence on society as a whole. In this truly enlightening book, "average" Americans will learn to trust themselves over the so-called "experts" that have infiltrated the media.

The first-ever manual that shows you how to investigate UFOs, strange creatures, and the paranormal--like a professional. Clear, comprehensive, no-nonsense, Chase Kloetzke and Richard Dolan have set a new standard for investigators of strange phenomena. UFOs, ghosts, and strange creatures like Bigfoot are some of the most interesting subjects in our world, mainly because they challenge the very sense of reality that most of us grew up with. These things aren't supposed to exist. The problem, however, is that reports of them just keep coming, even well into the 21st century. Conducting a good investigation of these elusive subjects is not easy. How do you plan your investigation? What's the best way to interview your witnesses? What kind of equipment should you bring? What kind of clothing? How do you do a proper stake-out of a location? What safety precautions should you take? How do you obtain, handle, and preserve evidence? How do you document your case for posterity, so that others can learn from it? Also, what kind of strangeness should you expect from investigating these very odd encounters? What do you need to know? How can you prepare for something that exists at the edges of our shared reality?The purpose of this book is to teach you these things. Until now, there hasn't been a clearly written general guide for investigators of the weird, whether seasoned or brand-new. This is the first-ever field manual that will show you how to investigate UFOs, strange creatures, and the paranormal, and to do it in a professional manner.
