  • WHETHER WORKING WITH EXECUTIVES IN old or new companies— a Fortune 500, a start-up, a venture capital firm, an investment banking or management consulting firm, or a high tech, entertainment, consumer products, or manufacturing company—one of the top challenges I hear over and over is: How do we recruit, develop, and keep the best talent?

  • Media Psychology examines the impact that 21st century media use has on human behavior, from teenage crushes on pop stars to soap fandom in adulthood. It brings together North American communication research with European media research in a variety of disciplines--psychology, sociology, communication and media studies--and in doing so, maps out the territory for media psychology. David Giles argues that psychologists have been guilty of ignoring the influence of the media over the last century, seeing it at best as a minor nuisance that will eventually go away.

  • Any book appearing in the midst of a severe recession discussing the use of sports and culture to rebuild cities might seem to be either irrelevant or insensitive. Some could consider it irrelevant because its focus seemingly ignores the quintessential issue of our day: “How does America restart its economy?” Other people might consider the book insensitive in that it analyzes sports, culture, and entertainment— what some might consider frivolous luxuries—at a time when millions of people have lost their jobs and homes.

  • The word robot is commonly defined as a mechanical device capable of performing human tasks, or behaving in a human-like manner. No argument here. The description certainly fits. But to the robotics experimenter, “robot” has a completely different meaning. A robot is a special brew of motors, solenoids, wires, and assorted electronic odds and ends, a marriage of mechanical and electronic gizmos.

  • Life in cities—i.e., in organized human settlements, which are mostly referred to as communities in this book—is possible only if people have mobility1 on a daily basis—the ability to move around so that they can do what they have to do or like to do.

Residences are separate from workplaces, major shopping is concentrated in identifiable centers, and larger entertainment and relaxation facil- ities are found at specific locations.

  • “In striving for entertainment, our imagination must have neither limits nor bounds. It has always been a basic need in creative efforts. ‘Imagination,’ wrote Stanislavsky, ‘must be cultivated and developed; it must be alert, rich and active. An actor (animator) must learn to think on any theme. He must observe people (and animals) and their behavior—try to understand their mentality.’ “To one degree or another, people in our audience are aware of human and animal behavior. They may have seen, experienced or read about it.

  • Let’s face it, as long as it’s not happening to you, crime is pretty entertaining. Every offense, from shoplifting to murder, combines danger and excitement with emotions like greed, anger, and the urge to make very close friends in prison. The dastardly deeds are often outrageous and sometimes hair-raising, but we can’t seem to rip our eyes from the wreckage criminals make of their own lives and the lives of their victims. The dark side of human behavior both repulses and fascinates us.

  • When the history of the Nineteenth Century--'the Wonderful Century,' as it has, not inaptly, been called--comes to be written, a foremost place must be assigned to that great movement by which evolution has become the dominant factor in scientific progress, while its influence has been felt in every sphere of human speculation and effort. At the beginning of the Century, the few who ventured to entertain evolutionary ideas were regarded by their scientific contemporaries, as wild visionaries or harmless 'cranks'--by the world at large, as ignorant 'quacks' or 'designing atheists.
