Breaking the Age Code

Breaking the Age Code
Yale professor and leading expert on the psychology of successful aging, Dr. Becca Levy, draws on her ground-breaking research to show how age beliefs can be improved so they benefit all aspects of the aging process, including the way genes operate and the extension of life expectancy by 7.5 years. Dr. Becca Levy, Yale Professor, in her pioneering studies of aging has discovered that positive age beliefs can extend our lifespans by 7.5 years. It’s time for all of us to rethink aging and Breaking the Age Code shows us how to do just that. Based on her innovative research, as well as stories drawn from pop culture, anthropology, the corporate world, and Levy’s own life, Breaking the Age Code shows how age beliefs shape all aspects of our lives. She also presents a variety of fascinating people who have benefited from positive age beliefs as well as an entire town that has flourished with these beliefs. The often-surprising results of Levy’s science offer stunning revelations about the mind-body connection. She demonstrates that many health problems formerly considered to be entirely due to the aging process, such as memory loss and hearing decline, are instead influenced by the negative age beliefs that dominate in the US and other ageist countries. Breaking the Age Code presents easy-to-follow techniques for improving age beliefs so they can contribute to successful aging. The book also offers a blueprint to reduce structural ageism in order to form an age-just society.

A practical, step-by-step program for healing the four lower chakras—the empowerment chakras—using EFT/tapping. Noted empowerment coach Margaret Lynch Raniere introduces the hidden power of the four lower “empowerment” chakras—root, sacral, solar plexus, heart—and the groundbreaking healing techniques she created to heal them using Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also known as “tapping.” These four chakras are the source of the exact rising empowerment energy you need to feel, speak, and act with confidence, courage, and deeply felt belief in yourself and your value. However, these are the chakras that get blocked with long-buried fears and pain that create self-doubt, procrastination, playing small, and years of trying to prove you’re good enough. Healing these lower chakras will help you reclaim your inner power so you can stop proving and start being your most powerful, passionate, and authentic self.

Medical Marijuana

Medical Marijuana
An essential guide to understanding the health benefits of marijuana and CBD Marijuana has been used for thousands of years as a medicine, but pot has been illegal in the United States for most of our lives. Almost all states have now legalized its medical use, and many consumers and physicians are exploring it as an alternative to conventional treatments. There’s substantial evidence that marijuana (cannabis) is a safe and effective treatment for chronic pain, chemo side effects, sleep and mood disorders, MS, and Parkinson’s disease, among others. But there’s also misinformation about marijuana on social media. And most physicians have limited knowledge on the subject, while dispensary staff (aka “budtenders”) lack medical training. Mikhail Kogan, MD, a renowned expert on medical marijuana, has found that cannabinoids (THC, CBD, hemp, and other cannabis products) can often be more beneficial, have fewer side effects, and be safer than many conventional medications, including opioids and other painkillers. But different ailments require different strains, doses, and routes of delivery. Medical Marijuana demystifies marijuana and other forms of cannabis in a user-friendly guide that will help readers: • Understand how marijuana morphed from the days of “Reefer Madness” to being hailed as a wonder weed • Navigate the complex medical and legal world of marijuana • Understand the risks and benefits of THC, CBD, and other cannabis products • Evaluate the pros and cons of inhaled and other routes of delivery: edibles, topicals, and even suppositories • Find a doctor who can recommend medical cannabis • Choose a reliable dispensary • Learn how to evaluate labels on cannabis products • Discover cost-saving strategies since medical marijuana isn’t covered by health insurance With real-life patients’ stories woven throughout the book, simple explanatory graphics, and the most up-to-date information, this is the definitive guide to the wide-ranging benefits of medical marijuana and other forms of cannabis.

Imagine If . . .

Imagine If . . .
A call to action that pulls together all of Sir Ken Robinson’s key messages and philosophies, and that challenges and empowers readers to re-imagine our world, and our systems, for the better. Sir Ken Robinson changed the lives of millions of people. The embodiment of the prestigious TED conference, his TED Talks are watched an average of 17,000 times a day--a figure that Chris Anderson, Head of TED, says is the equivalent of selling out the Millennium Dome every night for fifteen consecutive years. A New York Times bestselling author, Sir Ken’s books have been translated into twenty four languages. In his final years, Sir Ken was working on a book that would serve as his manifesto. This book was being written for both new and dedicated audiences alike as a coherent overview of the arguments that he dedicated his life to, and as a pivotal piece of literature for the education revolution he began. When Sir Ken received his cancer prognosis in August 2020 he asked his daughter and collaborator, Kate Robinson, to finish writing this manifesto and continue his work. At its core, Sir Ken’s work is a love letter to human potential--a celebration of what we as a species are capable of doing, and of being, if we create the right conditions. It is a rallying cry to revolutionize our systems of education, and the ways in which we run our businesses and structure our social systems, so that they bring out the best in each and every person. Sir Ken often observed that what separates us from the rest of life on Earth is our power of imagination: the ability to bring to mind things that are not present to our senses. It is imagination that allows us to create the world in which we live, rather than just exist in it. It also gives us the power to recreate it.

The Beginning Is Near
This book is quasi-autobiographical, leaning on links to music from the sixties, seventies, eighties, and nineties. Woven throughout are references to self-isolation in lockdown, a journey through the dark night of the soul toward enlightenment, and a growing awareness that those of us who open our hearts to peace and love are being called on to offer it now. I share a journal about love and loss—sudden separation from a long-term relationship—and the aftermath, leading to a new beginning. I provide ideas to support transformation from books, websites, music, some wild metaphysical blogs, and YouTube videos if publicly available—check for links in the ebook by tapping or clicking on the titles that are bold and italicized. The pivotal piece in this book is that I’ve used the music and techniques to transform my life and access wisdom, joy, and bliss. This inner change has led to outer change, impacting my understanding of reality and the nature of the COVID-19 phenomenon. There are some twists in this story I could never have predicted. Truth is stranger than fiction.

Reawakening Hope
This is a memoir of my early childhood growing up in a remote and poor Nigerian village. My mother died when I was only 13 months old, leaving me exposed to a life without her nurturing and protective care. Moved from one foster home to another, I found love in some, indifference in others. My journey to adolescence was marked by loneliness and hardship. I experienced anger, shame, loneliness, misery, rebellion, sorrow and grief. This anguish was undeniably connected to the absence of my mother. I hated school, avoided people, and suffered in silence. It nearly tore me apart. Ironically, the very adversity which had been cause for paralyzing emptiness, became motivation for my rebound. I imagined myself through my mother’s eyes. What kind of son would she have loved for me to become? This introspective quest led to the person I am now. When I became a priest, I started a ministry to support women like her and orphans like me. Today, ten years after incorporation in the U.S. as a 501c3 non-profit, the Divine Mercy International Widows and Orphans Organization (DMIWOO) is opening a 150-bed capacity medical center in my remote village of Obike. Indeed, life is about the things that happen to us as much as it is about the use we make of them.

MECHANISMS AND VIBRATION ANALYSIS WITH SOLIDWORKS AND MATLAB /SIMSCAPE
This textbook is intended to cover the fundamentals of Design of Mechanisms using the SolidWorks Motion Analysis® and MATLABTM/SimulinkTM/SimscapeTM. It is written primary for the engineering students, engineers, technologists and practitioners who have no or a little work experience with SolidWorks and MATLABTM/SimulinkTM/SimscapeTM. It is assumed that the readers are familiar with the fundamentals of the Statics and Dynamics offered at introductory level courses in a typical undergraduate mechanical engineering program. However, the basic theories and formulas are included within this text as well. The textbook can be also used as a reference text for an introductory level course in the motion system design and design of mechanisms areas, offered to the students in mechatronics and robotics programs. Chapter 1 of this textbook deals mostly with the fundamental terms and concepts used in the process of the design of mechanism. Several examples of commonly used planar mechanisms are offered, including: slider-crank, four bar, Scotch-Yoke, quick return, ratchet, indexing, and cam-follower mechanisms. The concept of the mass moment of inertia is reviewed and the application of SolidWorks to find the area and mass properties of a rigid body, relative to a desired coordinate frame, is shown. The rigid bodies’ transformation and kinematics of a rigid body are presented and the governing equations are obtained. Chapter 2 includes the graphical and analytical kinematic approaches for a planar mechanism, alongside an introduction to the concept of velocity and acceleration images. Several examples are solved using MATLAB/Simulink to demonstrate how a computational software is used to solve the equations obtained by the analytical kinematic approach. Chapter 3 of this textbook introduces SolidWorks Motion Analysis with all available motion elements such as motors, force, contact, gravity, spring, and dampers. Further, both motion study properties and SolidWorks motion analysis post processing tools are presented. Chapter 4 of this textbook presents both the static and dynamic force analysis using the graphical approach. A systematic approach is introduced to learn how to use a CAD software, in particular SolidWorks, to perform both static and dynamic force analysis. The main parameters to size and select an actuator based on required loading and inertia are discussed. The load and inertia calculation for commonly used transmission systems such as gearboxes, lead screws, racks and pinions, pulleys, belt-driven, and conveyor systems are also presented. In chapter 5, Simscape software and several Simscape libraries are introduced to simulate mechanical motion systems such as robots and mechanisms. Chapter 6 of this textbook shows a systematic approach is to define the position and orientation of various frames in space using MATLAB/Simulink/ Robotic System Toolbox. The Forward kinematic of serial robots is covered. This chapter ends with an introduction to the inverse kinematic of a serial robot. Chapter 7 of this book presents the applications of some tools available in MATALAB and Simulink/Simscape to analyze the mechanical vibrations of the discrete systems. Besides, SolidWorks Simulations is used to perform modal frequency analysis for continuous systems such as beams, plates, sheet metals, and assemblies.

Addition by Subtraction: God Turns Our Broken Pieces into Masterpieces

Addition by Subtraction: God Turns Our Broken Pieces into Masterpieces
God turns broken pieces into masterpieces. In his book, Addition By Subtraction, author David Ralston invites readers to join him on a journey from the shame and brokenness of their past to lasting hope for the future. Where the world’s way claims that change comes through a complex formula of mental health methods, behavior modification, and self-help disciplines, Dr. Ralston’s TURN approach is built on the premise that the solution isn’t within a person, the problem is. He then meticulously details a biblical, Christ-centered pathway of self-examination, deep vulnerability, surrendering control, and systematically exchanging false beliefs for God’s truth. This book invites the reader to turn from the pain of their past to hope and wholeness found only in Jesus. On this journey toward authenticity, an individual begins to discover genuine heart change and an unfathomable hope. Not just another untried theory, Dr. Ralston’s well-proven TURN model combines the wisdom of his real-life experiences with abandonment, addiction, and divorce, with the credibility of his extensive study, training, and experience as a doctoral level Christian Counselor. Passing shame and brokenness down to children has long been a generational norm in American society. By learning to live a transparent, surrendered life, God miraculously changes a person from the inside out, introducing a renewed and unshakable hope for generations to come.

Forensics
Carrie Fisher, also known as Princess Leia from Star Wars, had been abusing cocaine and other pharmaceuticals for many years, so when it was announced that she died from sleep apnea, I was skeptical. A more plausible explanation would have been that she died from a drug overdose. A review of the medical examiner''s report revealed that the Fisher family refused to give permission for an autopsy and toxicology tests to be done. Constrained by these limitations, the coroner labeled the manner of death "undetermined". FORENSICS: The Science behind the Deaths of Famous People is an analysis and description of how coroners determine the cause and manner of death. An investigation of twenty-three deaths of famous people was conducted based on a review of publicly available autopsy and toxicology reports, as well as published scientific and lay articles.

A Liberated Mind

A Liberated Mind
"In all my years studying personal growth, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is one of the most useful tools I''ve ever come across, and in this book, Dr. Hayes describes it with more depth and clarity than ever before."-Mark Manson, #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck Life is not a problem to be solved. ACT shows how we can live full and meaningful lives by embracing our vulnerability and turning toward what hurts. In this landmark book, the originator and pioneering researcher into Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) lays out the psychological flexibility skills that make it one of the most powerful approaches research has yet to offer. These skills have been shown to help even where other approaches have failed. Science shows that they are useful in virtually every area--mental health (anxiety, depression, substance abuse, eating disorders, PTSD); physical health (chronic pain, dealing with diabetes, facing cancer); social processes (relationship issues, prejudice, stigma, domestic violence); and performance (sports, business, diet, exercise). How does psychological flexibility help? We struggle because the problem-solving mind tells us to run from what causes us fear and hurt. But we hurt where we care. If we run from a sense of vulnerability, we must also run from what we care about. By learning how to liberate ourselves, we can live with meaning and purpose, along with our pain when there is pain. Although that is a simple idea, it resists our instincts and programming. The flexibility skills counter those ingrained tendencies. They include noticing our thoughts with curiosity, opening to our emotions, attending to what is in the present, learning the art of perspective taking, discovering our deepest values, and building habits based around what we deeply want. Beginning with the epiphany Steven Hayes had during a panic attack, this book is a powerful narrative of scientific discovery filled with moving stories as well as advice for how we can put flexibility skills to work immediately. Hayes shows how allowing ourselves to feel fully and think freely moves us toward commitment to what truly matters to us. Finally, we can live lives that reflect the qualities we choose.

Lean and Agile Project Management

Lean and Agile Project Management
When project managers are faced with budget cuts and fewer resources, waste elimination becomes a priority in maintaining effectiveness. This does not mean shortening or abandoning traditional project cycles. In fact, fast results on critical assignments can only be completed with strong plans and a detailed work breakdown structure. The connections, or lack thereof, are what strongly impact performance and quality. Lean and Agile, as covered in this book, are meant to enhance traditional project management, not replace the science. A strong foundation in traditional project management is necessary to appreciate the benefits of adopting Lean and Agile. Lean and Agile Project Management: How to Make Any Project Better, Faster, and More Cost Effective defines the wastes and issues found in project management and demonstrates how they can be addressed by engaging Lean thinking and Agile techniques. This book also: • Shows how to apply Lean principles to project management (PM) • Teaches the application of simple Six Sigma metrics in PM • Discusses the adoption of Agile techniques in PM in order to stay on task and remain flexible • Helps readers discover the theoretical synergies between popular PM programs • Promotes an understanding of how Lean people skills can help a person become a better leader and manager Since the publication of the first edition of this book, the bodies of knowledge have all been systematically updated. In addition, through conducting peer groups and detailed workshops, the Author has simplified many of the basics, and they are now much easier to understand.
