Beyond Dissociation

Author: Yves Rossetti
Publisher: John Benjamins Publishing
ISBN: 9027251428
Release Date: 2000
Genre: Psychology

Analysis and dissociation have proved to be useful tools to understand the basic functions of the brain and the mind, which therefore have been decomposed to a multitude of ever smaller subsystems and pieces by most scientific approaches. However, the understanding of complex functions such as consciousness will not succeed without a more global consideration of the ways the mind-brain works. This implies that synthesis rather than analysis should be applied to the brain. The present book offers a collection of contributions ranging from sensory and motor cognitive neuroscience to mood management and thought, which all focus on the dissociation between conscious (explicit) and nonconscious (implicit) processing in different cognitive situations. The contributions in this book clearly demonstrate that conscious and nonconscious processes typically interact in complex ways. The central message of this collection of papers is: In order to understand how the brain operates as one integrated whole that generates cognition and behaviour, we need to reassemble the brain and mind and put all the conscious and nonconscious pieces back together again.

Genre: Health & Fitness

A jogging handbook. It renews Arthur Lydiard's philosophy of jogging, just as it was 40 years ago. It is a guide to why you should jog, if you are not jogging already; how you jog, or jog better if you jog already; and how it holds back the degeneration that does not necessarily have to accompany the advancing years. Lydiard argues that jogging will not stop you growing older but it will help you to grow older more gracefully and with less loss of both physical and mental mobility.

It is about a boy who went through an extraordinary childhood surviving the Japanese occupation of Penang. He encountered a strange event during that time. He heard the bleating of a kid goat that died three days before. It could be called a vision or a calling but thus the event influenced the rest of his life. Though not born of Christian parents, he embraced Christianity when he came of age. He was unexpectedly called to holy office and ordained as a priest of the Anglican Church. He was also unexpectedly sent to China by the Asia-Pacific Telecommunity in 1986 to lecture in Rural Telephone Development. It was at a time when all Malaysian Chinese around his age were barred from visiting China. The story ends with his unexpected meeting of the Queen of England at the Cathedral of St Mary the Virgin, Kuala Lumpur in October 1989.

Down the Hill Around the Bend and Over the Edge

Author: Harpe. Shideler
Publisher: BookBaby
ISBN: 9781483513737
Release Date: 2013-11-20
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

In 2004, Shideler Harpe was described as a lovable curmudgeon who had worked in several metro newsrooms from New York City to Honolulu, spreading his personalgospel of fellowship and good cheer. (Almost all true, except the fellowship and good cheer part.) He also has dabbled in politics and public relations. All of this resulted in a handful of essays, short stories, great thoughts, infuriating opinion, and other interesting and important literary flotsam and jetsam gathered during more than sixty years in journalism, public relations, and politics. Harpe decided on a journalism career at age ten; World War II temporarily changed his plans when the Navy needed another radio operator. After the war, Harpe got back on track and eventually worked in every known category of editor, reporter, photographer, feature writer, and columnist. (He has filled in as society editor, and as a sports desk copy editor; neither reflects his best work and are not usually mentioned in his resume.) His prodigious output includes an anthology assembled in 2011, "People said, 'You oughta write a book!' So I did". Whoops! Oh, dear! It just wasn’t quite big enough to hold sixty years of intense, porn-free printed pleasure, so... what to do? Of course! Harpe has put together another great read! And here it is. He also has written two health-related books; tons of copy for newspapers and magazines; hundreds of speeches; radio and television scripts and commercials; scripts for glitzy awards programs and other special events, and has ghost-written national magazine articles attributed to names in medicine and health that you might recognize. Somehow, Harpe also found time to spend more than twenty years in public relations (a couple of years here, eighteen months there) and he has earned battle scars as media adviser for an elected official and two political campaigns. He also has won a few journalism awards — some prestigious, others not so much. Harpe now is a lovable, unemployed eighty-six-year-old curmudgeon, living in Sacramento, California, and dedicating his twilight years to providing financial assistance and spiritual guidance to wayward young ladies. He reports that it is difficult but rewarding work.

Terrorists Threaten the Boston Marathon Race Director Killed World’s Largest Spectator Event at Risk The trouble with most terrorists is they think too small. This is the message Boston police receive days before fifteen thousand runners and two and a half million spectators descend on the city for the marathon. Even bin Laden only killed thousands. What if the target was larger? What if millions were at risk? Sgt. Mike Quinn, Vietnam vet, homicide detective and addicted marathoner, is called in to help when domestic terrorists, looking too piggy-back onto the World Trade Center disaster, threaten a race day bloodbath. How real is the threat? On Sunday, October 28, 2001, six weeks after the attack on the World Trade Center, the Boston Globe printed a call-to-arms by Rocky Suhayda, the chairman of the American Nazi Party: “if we were one-tenth as serious as the bin Laden terrorists, we just might start getting somewhere.” Quinn is a divorced, forty-something year old history buff, who loves his city and its marathon. He’s run the race six times. And when marathon director Ronnie Silk is killed, Quinn is assigned to protect Raven, the red hot rock ‘n roll diva and the marathon’s first-ever celebrity entrant. Raven is a magnet for trouble. And Quinn scrambles to keep up with her during the final miles of the race while trying to flush out the maniac terrorists.
