Detail - In the winter of 2006, the Electrolux Corporation closed the largest refrigerator factory in the U.S. and moved it to Juarez, Mexico, for cheaper labor. The move turned the lives of nearly 3,000 workers in Greenville, Michigan, upside down. Before the plant closed, Electrolux workers led a middle class life, owning homes, buying new cars and taking vacations. Now most are scraping by on severance pay, unemployment benefits and a health plan that will end in a year. As personal finances spiral downward, health follows. In the year after the plant closure, the local hospital's caseload tripled because of depression, alcoholism and domestic abuse. Experts say that heart disease and mortality are also predicted to rise, totaling 134 excess deaths in this area alone over the next 10 years. And the lay-offs not only affect workers but their families and the entire community as well. Psychologist Rick Price, who has studied the effects of job loss on health, explains, these external life events do get under the skin. They create changes in the way our physiological system operates. They create elevated stressors, stress responses that ultimately lead to both acute and chronic health problems. High levels of the stress hormone cortisol, for example, can trigger increases in blood pressure, blood sugar, and even inflammation, all risk factors for disease. When stresses just won't stop, as bills keep coming and there's no hope for good paid work, the high level of stress hormones puts strain on the body's organs, eventually wearing them out. Stress also increases the risk of health problems such as alcohol abuse, suicide, homicide, and accidents. As middle-class Americans find their health and way of life increasingly threatened by globalization and corporate profit-seeking, those in the top income brackets are reaping the spoils of our winner-take-all society. The typical CEO now earns more than 250 times the salary of the average worker. Today, the top 1% of the population has more wealth than the bottom 90% combined. Economic inequality is greater now than at any time since the 1920s. In other countries, the situation is vastly different. When Electrolux shut down one of its plants in Vastervick, Sweden, it caused hardly a ripple. Laid-off workers received 80% of their salary in unemployment benefits as well as education and training for new jobs. Electrolux also paid {dollar}3 million to stimulate the creation of start-up businesses in Vastervick after pressure ...

Detail - Unnatural Causes: The Death of Emperor Napoleon By: Russell Aiuto The great Napoleon Bonaparte was defeated at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. The European Powers exiled him to a remote island, St. Helena, where he was essentially kept as a prisoner until his death in 1821, supposedly from stomach cancer. But was this truly the case? There are indications that he may have been poisoned. Two boys, separated by over 130 years, try to solve the case. One, Emmanuel, was with Napoleon on St. Helena; the other, Sven, helps his father as he is is attempting to unravel the mystery. Both boys learn of a plot to whisk Napoleon off the island and replace him with a double. Was the Napoleon who died in 1821 really Napoleon? Or someone else entirely?

Detail - The dead do not hide the truth and they never lie. Through me the dead can speak . . . Dr Richard Shepherd is the UK's foremost forensic pathologist, his job to understand the deaths which may have no natural cause. From crime scene to court room, his findings are crucial to the pursuit of justice. His work has seen killers put behind bars, exonerated the innocent, and turned open and shut cases on their heads. Shepherd's obsession with revealing the secrets of the dead is personal. At medical school, while performing his first autopsy, he held the heart of the patient in his hand and thought of his late mother, taken too early by heart disease. He became driven by the challenge of finding the truth, of seeing justice, and by compassion- sometimes for the dead, but always for those they have left behind. Thoughtful, revealing, chilling, sometimes bizarre and always unputdownable, Unnatural Causes is the true crime book of the year.
