A vida pode mudar num instante, e dar uma guinada extraordinária. É o que acontece com Jake Epping, um professor de inglês de uma cidade do Maine. Enquanto corrigia as redações dos seus alunos do supletivo, Jake se depara com um texto brutal e fascinante, escrito pelo faxineiro Harry Dunning. Cinquenta anos atrás, Harry sobreviveu à noite em que seu pai massacrou toda a família com uma marreta. Jake fica em choque... mas um segredo ainda mais bizarro surge quando Al, dono da lanchonete da cidade, recruta Jake para assumir a missão que se tornou sua obsessão: deter o assassinato de John Kennedy. Al mostra a Jake como isso pode ser possível: entrando por um portal na despensa da lanchonete, assim chegando ao ano de 1958, o tempo de Eisenhower e Elvis, carrões vermelhos, meias soquete e fumaça de cigarro. Após interferir no massacre da família Dunning, Jake inicia uma nova vida na calorosa cidadezinha de Jodie, no Texas. Mas todas as curvas dessa estrada levam ao solitário e problemático Lee Harvey Oswald. O curso da história está prestes a ser desviado... com consequências imprevisíveis. Em "Novembro de 63", livro inédito de Stephen King, a viagem no tempo nunca foi tão plausível... e aterrorizante.

Calcium and vitamin D are essential nutrients for the human body. Establishing the levels of these nutrients that are needed by the North American population is based on the understanding of the health outcomes that calcium and vitamin D affect. It is also important to establish how much of each nutrient may be "too much." Dietary Reference Intakes for Calcium and Vitamin D provides reference intake values for these two nutrients. The report updates the DRI values defined in Dietary Reference Intakes for Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Vitamin D, and Fluoride, the 1997 study from the Institute of Medicine. This 2011 book provides background information on the biological functions of each nutrient, reviews health outcomes that are associated with the intake of calcium and vitamin D, and specifies Estimated Average Requirements and Recommended Dietary Allowances for both. It also identifies Tolerable Upper Intake Levels, which are levels above wish the risk for harm may increase. The book includes an overview of current dietary intake in the U.S. and Canada, and discusses implications of the study. A final chapter provides research recommendations. The DRIs established in this book incorporate current scientific evidence about the roles of vitamin D and calcium in human health and will serve as a valuable guide for a range of stakeholders including dietitians and other health professionals, those who set national nutrition policy, researchers, the food industry, and private and public health organizations and partnerships.

Victor Regnier?s visually rich guide includes dozens of design solutions from successful assisted living facilities along with fifteen case studies from the U.S. and Europe. The book also covers recent developments in the industry including major changes in financing, growth of dementia, and interest in aging-in-place. All in all, this is the most comprehensive guide to assisted living design that you'll find in any single volume.
