A History of Male Psychological Disorders in Britain, 1945-1980 (Mental Health in Historical Perspective) by Alison Haggett

This book is open access under a CC BY license.Statistically, women appear to suffer more frequently from depressive and anxiety disorders, featuring more regularly in primary care figures for consultations, diagnoses and prescriptions for psychotropic medication. This has been consistently so throughout the post-war period with current figures suggesting that women are approximately twice more likely to suffer from affective disorders than men. However, this book suggests that the statistical landscape reveals only part of the story. Currently, 75 per cent of suicides are among men, and this trend can also be traced back historically to data that suggests this has been the case since the beginning of the twentieth-century. This book suggests that male psychological illness was in fact no less common, but that it emerged in complex ways and was understood differently in response to prevailing cultural and medical forces. The book explores a host of medical, cultural and social factors that raise important questions about historical and current perceptions of gender and mental illness.

How to Make Money on YouTube: and Other Social Media Sites by Adam Rumanek

Social media is about getting people to know you, engage with you and trust you so that ultimately they want to do business with you. You too can make money through social media platforms if you take the time to follow the proper steps, know what you want, know your client base and research your market in an organized way. Most importantly, devising a proper strategy will help you build your brand and increase your traffic. This e-book begins by helping you understand the value of having a presence on YouTube and other social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and takes away the fear of failure and the unknown. Over the course of this book we share ideas and answer three very important questions: “How do I engage with my customers and potential customers?” “How do I drive traffic from one social platform to other social platforms?” and, “How do I make money with social media?” This book is divided into several sections each exploring social media platforms and monetization. After you read this book, you will be armed with the proper tools, language and information to start using effective social media techniques. It is natural to be afraid of the unknown or to have a lack of understanding in terms of why social media platforms are great for your company. However, the process of being discovered, engaged and trusted is not only crucial to achieve real business results but also important to stay abreast of things. The reality is, if you do not fill the gap between customer and client needs and services then your competitors will find a way to. The goal of this e-book is to help you develop a successful business strategy to build awareness for your brand and website, increase your audience, expand your content to other platforms, keep your audience engaged and finally to make money online.

Balance Theory: The Connection between Self-Esteem and Wellness by Smadar Maizles

The words “nature” and “God” are numerologically the same, the reason being that nature undoubtedly knows how to balance itself. The same goes for our body. As creatures of nature, we continuously strive for natural, emotional, mental and physical balance. We can do it. However, getting there is possible, only when we decide to pull ourselves together and take that bold step and start empowering our inner abilities.It was a bright Sunday morning, I was just finishing my workout at the gym, about to start my day when the phone rang. On the other end of the line, was my son, calling from the remote military base where he was stationed. He had just received his test results. What he told me changed my life forever. “Mom, I have juvenile diabetes”, he said. It took us two days to absorb the news. On the third day we pulled ourselves together, straightened our backs, lifted our heads, got up and embarked together on a journey – we were going to beat it! At that moment the “Balance Theory” was born. I am Smadar Maizles (Ph.d) – an expert in health sciences and the developer of the “Balance Theory” which is based on my doctoral thesis. Married and the mother of three as well as a proud grandmother, I worked for many years as an economist until that moment when my youngest was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes. Then I changed course.I successfully completed my doctorate in health sciences, and today I run a diabetes management clinic, give lectures and organize workshops for healthy lifestyle as an alternative therapist and a certified emotional trainer.The “Balance Theory” is a first-of-its-kind training, practical, hands-on and effective method based on a new field of research called psychoneuroimmunology – which studies the connections between the conscious system, and the nervous, hormone and the immune systems, and their impact on our health. Psychoneuroimmunology research points at a direct link between stress, uncontrolled negative emotions, blood sugar levels and illness in general.The”Balance Theory” method combines empowerment training and tools adopted from complementary medicine and psychology, to balance body, mind and spirit, through nutrition and exercise. I was privileged to teach this method and witness its success with parents of juvenile diabetic children in the support groups I initiated, as well as on the social network. I am there for them from day one throughout the whole process. Happiness does not depend on external factors – it is the strongest health generator of all!Instead of fighting in the dark, let’s turn on the light (A.D. Gordon)

Tracing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to mtDNA: Hypometabolism due to Mitochondrial Dysfunction is Key to ME/CFS by B Day

This study found a genetic component to ME/CFS in families with more than one generation of illness. Those families had significantly higher frequencies of maternal haplogroup subclades known for reduced OXHPOS capacity and mitochondrial uncoupling. Individuals with mitochondrial dysfunction can be pushed over the threshold into ME/CFS by viruses (e.g. Epstein Barr), infections (e.g. Lyme Disease), Gulf War Syndrome, and chemical exposure. Occasionally patients are put in positions where they can recognize patterns that take research one step forward. B. Day connects the dots between the level of mitochondrial dysfunction and ME/CFS (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) symptoms. This book was written specifically for ME/CFS researchers, but is likely to also interest ME/CFS patients who enjoy scientific details.Topics include: maternal haplogroups, mitochondrial and nuclear DNA variants, hypometabolism, and metabolomics. The health conditions of Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, and Autistic Spectrum Disorder are reviewed in light of their frequent occurrence in family members of ME/CFS patients and also their link with mitochondrial dysfunction.

The Cosmic Web: Scientific Field Models and Literary Strategies in the Twentieth Century by N. Katherine Hayles

From the central concept of the field—which depicts the world as a mutually interactive whole, with each part connected to every other part by an underlying field— have come models as diverse as quantum mathematics and Saussure’s theory of language. In The Cosmic Web, N. Katherine Hayles seeks to establish the scope of the field concept and to assess its importance for contemporary thought. She then explores the literary strategies that are attributable directly or indirectly to the new paradigm; among the texts at which she looks closely are Robert Pirsig’s Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Nabokov’s Ada, D. H. Lawrence’s early novels and essays, Borges’s fiction, and Thomas Pynchon’s Gravity’s Rainbow.

For those who don’t have the gift, questions can even the playing field. That’s how questions became the foundation of the author’s career and inspired this short-read book.People who ask brilliant questions are often more successful than people who give brilliant answers.

Properly using questions inspires trust.Most people look for a yes – action, obedience, or agreement – from customers, colleagues, families, and even horses.

Easy-to-understand and packed with illustrations, “The Art of YES” shares the 4 Types of Questions and teaches you to wield them effectively and responsibly.
