Rachel Gifford, nationally renowned diabetes educator and speaker, shares her story of living with diabetes from both sides of the exam table. A Gift in Wolf's Clothing begins when she diagnoses herself with her older sister's diabetes urine testing kit, and her initial reaction of, "Death makes more sense than trying to live with this disease." Over time she arrives at the conclusion that if she cannot kill herself to escape diabetes, she'll have to learn how to live with it! Living with diabetes takes her into a career of helping people with diabetes to hopefully, have an easier time of it than she did. This is a story of adventurous learning, that will bring you to tears, make you laugh out loud, and help you find your own spirit of tenacity in dealing with the "Wolves" life may have brought your way. "Reading A Gift in Wolf's Clothing has made me a better doctor..." Charles Reasner M.D, Professor of Medicine and Medical Director of the Texas Diabetes Institute, University of Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio
Recent trends in the fashion market (including an impressive increase in the number of new collections, product assortments and variants, and the emerging mass-customization model) dictate the need for a new approach. "Transforming Clothing Production into a Demand-Driven, Knowledge-Based, High-Tech Industry" discusses the ramifications of such an approach, which must lead to a drastic shortening of the whole cycle from conception to production and retail, as well as a shift from a labor-intensive to a technology- and knowledge-intensive clothing manufacturing industry. "Transforming Clothing Production into a Demand-Driven, Knowledge-Based, High-Tech Industry" is a collection of short papers from prominent researchers involved with the LEAPFROG (Leadership for European Apparel Production From Research along Original Guidelines) initiative. LEAPFROG proposes a revolutionary industrial paradigm based on research results in scientific-technological fields.
