Juliana Starosolska was taken by the Stalinists from her parents' home in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv and deported in a sealed boxcar to a distant and primitive outpost in Siberian Kazakhstan. In "Woman in Exile, " she records her ordeals in a series of vignettes that capture the horrific, the humane, and even the occasionally humorous aspects of her experience. Her father was arrested by the Stalinists and sent to a forced labor camp deep in Russian Siberia, where he died than two years later. In the spring of 1940, the rest of his family, who had remained behind in Ukraine-Juliana; her frail mother, Daria; and her brother, Ihor-were forcibly deported by the Soviet government. They were forced to live and work under the most brutally primitive and backbreaking conditions. After the death of her mother and the reassignment of her brother to a different part of Kazakhstan, Juliana found herself alone. When World War II ended, as a former Polish citizen, Juliana was allowed to leave Kazakhstan for Poland in 1946. She immigrated to the United States in 1967, where she resumed her journalistic and literary career. Now she tells the story of those difficult years-of her time as a "Woman in Exile."
Cuando tenía 18 años, fuerzas militares irrumpieron en su casa y se llevaron a sus padres. Luego, secuestraron a su hermana de 15 años y a su cuñada. Su hermano Sergio estaba haciendo la conscripción en la ESMA y nunca más volvió. En una noche, la del 15 de julio de 1976, Daniel Tarnopolsky perdió a toda su familia y se convirtió en un sobreviviente. Se exilió primero en Chile, después en Francia y en Israel hasta que el regreso de la democracia le ofreció garantías y fuerzas para volver al país. Su búsqueda nunca cesó. Su lucha lo llevó a ganar un juicio sin precedentes en el 2004, por el cual el ex almirante Emilio Massera debió pagarle una indemnización. Nada de esto le devolvió a su familia.
Tardó en encontrar algo de paz. Buscó, como muchos, en la religión un lugar de contención y de alivio; buscó también en videntes y médiums alguna respuesta para poder recrear la historia de aquella noche en la que la violencia lo dejó solo. Necesitaba entender, reconstruir desde las ruinas. Este libro reproduce todas las búsquedas de Daniel Tarnopolsky: la búsqueda de justicia, la de su propia identidad y la de sus desaparecidos. Betina sin aparecer es la historia de una familia forzada a la ausencia y es también el relato de la reconstrucción de la vida del único sobreviviente de esta tragedia. Y es, sobre todo, un grito de esperanza para comprender dónde está Betina.

Very low-carbohydrate (aka ketogenic) diets such as The Atkins Diet, Protein Power and The South Beach Diet have come and gone repeatedly over the years and there is currently great research and real-world interest in their effects. Unfortunately, altogether too much misinformation exists regarding them. Folks who are pro-low-carbohydrate diets tend to present them as the quick and easy solution to everything including obesity. Easy weight loss without hunger or calorie counting is promised but never seems to pan out as well as we might hope. At the other extreme are the anti-low-carbohydrate folks who tend to present low-carbohydrate diets as nothing short of a nutritional disaster being perpetrated by a bunch of con men. The truth, of course lies somewhere in the middle. While low-carbohydrate diets aren’t for everyone and have their pros and cons, the research is clear: they have major benefits under certain circumstances and can be as healthy (and sometimes healthier) than ‘standard’ carbohydrate based dieting. The Ketogenic Diet is the first and only book to objectively examine in-depth the scientific evidence regarding low-carbohydrate/ketogenic diets. It is meant to be a reference manual for low-carbohydrate diets; it is unlike any other book on low-carbohydrate diets that you have ever read or seen. Covering every topic in extreme detail, The Ketogenic Diet addresses everything from the basic physiology of how the body adapts to a low-carbohydrate intake, the details of human fuel utilization, the impact of low-carbohydrate diets on body composition and many, many more. Of course, none of the above is useful without practical application guidelines.
Details on how to optimize low-carbohydrate diets for different goals (such as fat loss, bodybuilding and endurance performance) are discussed along with three distinct types of low-carbohydrate diets.
In addition, the book includes a complete discussion of resistance, aerobic and anaerobic exercise physiology along with specific training programs for different goals and different levels of trainee At 325 pages and containing over 600 scientific references, this will be your complete reference for ketogenic diets.
