The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump

37 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President - Updated and Expanded with New Essays

Thomas Dunne Books As this bestseller predicted, Trump has only grown more erratic and dangerous as the pressures on him mount. This new edition includes new essays bringing the book up to date—because this is still not normal. Originally released in fall 2017, The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump was a runaway bestseller. Alarmed Americans and international onlookers wanted to know: What is wrong with him? That question still plagues us. The Trump administration has proven as chaotic and destructive as its opponents feared, and the man at the center of it all remains a cipher. Constrained by the APA’s “Goldwater rule,” which inhibits mental health professionals from diagnosing public figures they have not personally examined, many of those qualified to weigh in on the issue have shied away from discussing it at all. The public has thus been left to wonder whether he is mad, bad, or both. The prestigious mental health experts who have contributed to the revised and updated version of The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump argue that their moral and civic "duty to warn" supersedes professional neutrality. Whatever affects him, affects the nation: From the trauma people have experienced under the Trump administration to the cult-like characteristics of his followers, he has created unprecedented mental health consequences across our nation and beyond. With eight new essays (about one hundred pages of new material), this edition will cover the dangerous ramifications of Trump's unnatural state. It’s not all in our heads. It’s in his.

Complete Guide to Treadle Sewing Machines

As a sewing machine repair person for over twenty five years, I've seen almost every problem that can happen with your home sewing machine. I've seen people so frustrated with their new found treadle sewing machine that they were ready to set it aside for looks only, just because they couldn't figure out how to use or operate it. Normally the old treadles no longer have instruction books with them, therefore it's up to the owner to try to figure things out. Even a basic thing like putting on a new belt is an impossible task when you don't know where to begin and what steps to take to get it in the right position and secured properly. If you stop and think about it, the treadle machine is the machine all sewing machines of today were modeled after. The electric motor was added to take the place of the foot power of the treadle machines. The shuttle was changed from the bullet style to the present style of a small round flat shuttle directly under the feed dog and needle bar. I've had many requests to try to locate an instruction manual for treadle sewing machines, to no avail. After years of request after request for information on treadle sewing machines, I was finally talked into writing a book of general instruction for the treadle machine. Keep in mind that there are many different styles, brands and manufacturers of treadle sewing machines, and some are made in other countries. With that in mind, I could not include each of them specifically and cover the small differences they each may have, therefore this book is written in a "generic" style so that the information could be applied to any treadle machine.

Radar Instruction Manual

Since 1958 the Maritime Administration has continuously conducted instructions in use of collision avoidance radar for qualified U.S. seafaring personnel and representatives of interested Federal and State Agencies.Beginning in 1963, to facilitate the expansion of training capabilities and at the same time to provide the most modern techniques in training methods, radar simulators were installed in Maritime Administration?s three region schools.It soon became apparent that to properly instruct the trainees, even with the advanced equipment, a standardize up-to-date instruction manual was needed. The first manual was later revised to serve both as a classroom textbook and as an onboard reference handbook.This newly updated manual, the fourth revision, in keeping with Maritime Administration policy, has been restructured to include improved and more effective methods of plotting techniques for use in Ocean, Great Lakes, Coastwise and Inland Waters navigation.Robert J.
