In the last decade, interventional neuroradiology (endovascular treatment via the cerebral arteries) has advanced rapidly thanks to the development of new technological devices, such as detachable coils for brain aneurysm.

Another reason for producing this particular kind of reference book, to try and create a better understanding between and among the artists and art audiences in these three countries.

As an instructor at one of the world's top culinary schools, James Briscione thought he knew how to mix and match ingredients. Then he met IBM Watson. Working with the super computer to turn big data into delicious recipes, Briscione realised that he (like most chefs) knew next to nothing about why different foods taste good together. That epiphany launched him on a quest to understand the molecular basis of flavour - and it led, in time, to The Flavor Matrix. A ground breaking ingredient-pairing guide, The Flavor Matrix shows how science can unlock unheard-of possibilities for combining foods into astonishingly inventive dishes. Briscione distills chemical analyses of different ingredients into easy-to-use infographics, and presents mind-blowing recipes that he's created with them. The result of intensive research and incredible creativity in the kitchen, The Flavor Matrix is a must-have for home cooks and professional chefs alike: the only flavour-pairing manual anyone will ever need.

control of this confusing and frightening process. This extremely
accessible book is that expert partner, offering a combination of
crucial medical education clearly and comfortably explained along
with personal guidance gleaned from real patient experiences. In an
informed, compassionate, and respectful manner, "Dr. E" translates
the challenging medical and psychological issues facing the cancer
patient into lay terms, as well as outlining options for "owning"
the path ahead. The result empowers patients and their loved ones
to take control of their treatment regardless of cancer type or
stage, to maintain their independence, and to oversee the processes
which will determine their ultimate survival and quality of life.
