We live in an era where success is often defined by over-achievement in either our professional or personal lives. When we focus too much on our business or professional goals, our relationships can suffer. Likewise, when we ignore our professional development needs, our job security or business can be put at risk. We’re thrown into a constant state of unbalance between the relentless and competitive corporate work ethic, the “need-it-now” mentality encouraged by our dependency on technology, and the desire to see, do, and achieve more each day ...
Afew years ago I left my well-paid and prestigious job with a global
corporation to venture into the scary world of self-employment as a life
coach. Many of my colleagues who I’d come to know and love over the years
wished me well and asked exactly what I’d be doing. ‘Well,’ said I, ‘I suppose
what I’m really interested in is inspiring people to find the right balance,
enjoyment, and meaning in their lives.’
Companies are increasingly attempting to replace or expound product-orientated strategies by customerorientated
strategies. For this reason, the quantification of customer relations within the scope of the
balanced scorecard is increasingly achieving significance as an implementation instrument for strategies
and as a supplement to classic product profitability analysis.
Afew years ago I left my well-paid and prestigious job to ven-
ture into the scary world of self-employment as a life coach.
Many of my colleagues who I’d come to know and love over the
years wished me well and asked exactly what I’d be doing. ‘Well,’
said I, ‘I suppose what I’m really interested in is inspiring people to
find the right balance, enjoyment, and meaning in their lives.’
‘Oh,’ they replied, and a faraway look came into their eyes, ‘I could
really do with some of that.’ Then their gaze focused back on their
overflowing desk and the ringing phone.
The present text introduces the use of population balances in the context of batch wet granulation
and coating systems and it reviews the latest achievements and proposals in the scientific
literature in this field. The nature and framework of population balance theory are highlighted and
one-dimensional population balances are introduced from scratch. This may seems tedious at first
but the derivation of even the simplest population balances is nevertheless not an easy task, and it
is in fact difficult to find complete derivations elsewhere in literature.
This story begins in 1974. I tell it to you so that you will know
how I came to the knowledge I am about to share with you. It
also demonstrates how any person can transform his or her life
from ill health and craziness to well-being and sanity.
Two years out of college, I was an itinerant photographer
working for whichever publication would pay me to take pictures.
I ate what I wanted, smoked cigarettes, partied. And I got headaches:
searing, debilitating migraine headaches.
I have always wanted to write a book that would be different from every
other book on the market. There are no basic money management books
that provide the tools and resources to determine and quantify answers to
personal financial situations and most people’s pressing financial problems.
There are countless personal finance books on the market, but many
do not address how to quantify the specifics of each situation to make the
decisions that will help you achieve your financial objectives and attain financial
People talk lots of hokum about life coaching. Life coaching television
programmes, magazines and newspaper columns range in quality from
the powerful and inspirational through to the downright misleading and dangerous.
True life coaching isn’t about some guru telling you how you should
live. Yes, you may be tempted to bask in the comfort of an expert who can
fix your life, your fashion sense, your body flaws and your emotional angst.
But these fixes are too often like an elegant sticking plaster. Changes don’t
last, unless a real change has come from deep within you.

THE ABILITY to sustain close mindfulness is a learned skill that offers profoWld
benefits in all situations. This book explains the theory and applications
of the practice the Buddha called the direct path to enlightenment.
These simple but powerful techniques for cultivating mindfulness will
allow anyone, regardless of tradition, beliefs, or lack thereof. to achieve
genuine happiness and freedom from suffering. By closely minding the
body and breath, we relax, grounding ourselves in physical presence....
I am deeply grateful to all the Commissioners for their dedication, their foresight and personal
commitment to our common endeavour. It has been a truly wonderful team. The spirit of
friendship and open communication, the meeting of minds and the process of learning and
sharing, have provided an experience of optimism, something of great value to all of us, and, I
believe, to the report and its message. We hope to share with others our learning process, and
all that we have experienced together.
Confronting a terrorist threat that struck the
American homeland on September 11,
2001, President George W. Bush responded by
laying out a bold foreign policy and national
security strategy with few precedents in the modern
record of American diplomacy. To deal with
the threat of global terror, Bush did not explore a
reconfiguration of the global balance of power,
as, in very different ways, his father had at the
end of the Cold War and Richard Nixon had
in the early 1970s.
The wisdom approach goes beyond thinking. It is about experiencing.
It is about simply “letting things happen.” Letting things happen is
pretty unconventional in the context of project management. After all,
projects are about making things happen, not letting them happen.
Chapter 7 – Financial assets. The learning objectives for this chapter include: Define financial assets and explain their valuation in the balance sheet, describe the objectives of cash management, explain means of achieving internal control over cash transactions, prepare a bank reconciliation and explain its purpose,...

Modelling of biochemical systems usually focuses on certain pathways,
while the concentrations of so-called external metabolites are considered
fixed. This approximation ignores feedback loops mediated by the environ-ment, that is, via external metabolites and reactions. To achieve a more
realistic, dynamic description that is still numerically efficient, we propose
a new methodology: the basic idea is to describe the environment by a lin-ear effective model of adjustable dimensionality.
The first Section of this book starts with a collection of articles about sustainable
education or education for sustainable development. The papers present research and
practices of teaching and education as essential tools for achieving sustainable
development. Alternative perspective to funding public schools and Universities are
also presented in this section. The goal is to foster the increased quality of teaching and
learning and help countries make progress toward development.
In the discussion above, high surface tension and low viscosity are required for good ﬂow-out and leveling. But high surface tension can cause cratering, and excessively low viscosity would result in sagging and poor edge coverage. To obtain an optimal coating, the balance between surface tension and viscosity is important. Figure 2.12 illustrates coating performance as a function of surface tension and melt viscosity. Coating is a fairly complex process; achieving an optimal result calls for the consideration of many factors....
Defense in Depth is practical strategy for achieving Information Assurance in today’s highly networked environments. It is a “best practices” strategy in that it relies on the intelligent application of techniques and technologies that exist today. The strategy recommends a balance between the protection capability and cost, performance, and operational considerations. This paper provides an overview of the major elements of the strategy and provides links to resources that provide additional insight....
In neurointensive patients with acute lung injury, achieving the goal of lung protection
without threatening cerebral perfusion is very difficult. In patients with more refractory
raised intracranial pressure, the optimal balance between brain and lung may not be well
established. Multiple strategies are used to recruit atelectatic alveoli and improve
oxygenation. Among them incremental levels of PEEP and high intermittent tidal volumes
should require extend brain physiological monitoring.
