All of the following were discovered or invented by women: nuclear fission, pink champagne, solar heating, the bra, drip coffee, radioactivity, the Barbie doll, pulsars, the ice cream cone. But how many of these women's names and achievements are remembered by history? Informative, poignant, and sometimes very funny, this book presents the stories of some remarkable women who did not let the odds stop them from tinkering with the way things were and coming up with something better.--From publisher description

The new science of overcoming arthritis : prevent or reverse your pain, discomfort, and limitations by C. Thomas Vangsness( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A straight shooter by nature, Dr. Thomas Vangsness fearlessly debunks myths about so-called prescriptive diet and exercise regimens that can "cure" arthritis. Because while you can't cure it, you can manage it and dramatically improve your life. Dr. Vangsness provides practical advice culled from his years working with star collegiate athletes, who are often the guinea pigs in uncovering the best practices for dealing with injuries and deterioration of the body's joints. Dr. Vangsness is a medical advisor on the cutting-edge of arthritis research, and his book reveals the latest developments in stem cell generated cartilage. Through a unique, self-administered, and easy-to-follow test, readers will be guided toward one of three arthritis-managing regimens. They'll learn that while genetics play a large role in determining who will suffer from arthritis, and even how severely, there are strategies for staying active, pain-free, and healthy no matter who you are
