As life expectancy rates continue to increase in many countries around the world, comparative health assessments based on mortality rates alone give an increasingly inadequate picture of public health. This publication addresses a wide range of key issues regarding the measurement of population health using comprehensive indices which combine data on mortality and ill-health. It considers the various uses of such summary measures, as well as an appropriate measurement framework and specific ethical and social value choices involved. The contributors to this book include leading experts in epidemiological methods, ethics, health economics, health status measurement and the valuation of health states.

This compact collection of philosophical texts from the Summa Theologica -- on God, creation, the soul, human acts, moral good and evil, love, habits, virtue, and law -- is presented newly translated in abridged form and cast in a modified version of the medieval quaestio. Included are only the most important objections and Aquinas' replies; appeals to scriptural, theological, and philosophical authorities have been omitted. Unlike the ordering of the originals, questions and answers are here presented prior to objections and replies; the result is a sharp, rich, topically organised question-answer presentation of Aquinas' major philosophical arguments within a brief compass. A general Introduction, head notes, a glossary, an index, and a select bibliography offer expert guidance to the work of this major philosopher.
The Utah Geological Survey has compiled mineral activity summaries for Utah on an annual basis beginning in 1989. This CD contains the 14-page summary for 2008. These summaries have been publishing in the May issues of Mining Engineering, a publication of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration, Inc. The summaries divide mineral values into four broad segments of Utah?s mineral industry, including base metals, industrial metals, and energy minerals (coal and uranium). In addition to acquiring data through operator surveys, the UGS works in cooperation with the USGS and Utah Division of Oil, Gas, and Mining. A large part of the data for exploration and development activity is acquired from individual Web sites, trade industry publications, and correspondence.
