Every day we are exposed to situations that are beyond our control. It doesn't matter whether you're an elderly grandmother or a soldier fighting in Iraq. It doesn't matter whether you're a war veteran, cop, medical examiner or an EMT. At any time, you could be pushed over the edge. If I had known that my job was going to expose me to such horrific things, I could have saved myself. This book goes into graphic detail about my experiences with crime scenes, assaults, death threats, homicides, drugs and sex crimes. I will also tell you about workplace harassment and my recovery. When I was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) everything seemed so hopeless. The flashbacks, hypervigilant behavior, sleepless nights and paranoia were all consuming. The scenes described are worse than the scariest movie you will ever see and, quite simply, can cause people to be Overexposed.
Expository Discourse describes the social science research genre in an entirely original light. The authors present a comprehensive model which characterizes the generic, registerial and discoursal options as they interweave within a text, formulating explicit realization statements that relate the abstract categories of move and act (as described by Swales) to the way these units actually are created by lexical and grammatical choices. The realization networks draw on the work of systemic functional linguists, primarily Halliday, Hasan, Martin, and Ventola.
May 2004 marked a significant moment in Indian history when a newly elected government decided to accord highest priority to beef consumption and export, making it 'truly a national initiative'. India is known all over the world as a peace loving country. It is a historical fact that India has never attacked any other nation and has always believed in peaceful coexistence. It is also probably the only country that provides for animal care in its constitution. Animals are mentioned as something more than just food. Each citizen is enjoined to care for and preserve nature and its creatures. Compassion and non-violence formed the core belief of all the religions that originated from this great land. Traditional Indian or Vedic way of life teaches respect for all life forms. In their view, all living beings are born of mother nature and have an equal right to life. Indeed, in Vedic conception, animals are treated like innocent children and are meant to be given all protection. But suddenly India's national policy took a U-turn when a particular political party came to power. It was a significant moment in the history of this great nation. Website of the Ministry of Food Processing Industries stated: "There is an urgent need to frame a right strategy for the development of meat and poultry production in the country. This will certainly bring prosperity to millions of our rural citizens and create employment in rural India. Having achieved the Green Revolution, the White Revolution and the Blue Revolution, it is time to ask the question "can the Pink Revolution be far behind?" Certainly this will require large investment in infrastructure, mainly in cold storages, and modern meat processing plants. Without a strong and dependable cold chain, a vital sector like meat industry, which is based mostly on perishable products, cannot survive and grow." They relentlessly pursued their agenda for a decade and the crowning success came when India became the top seller of beef in 2013.
