The Brain That Changes Itself Norman Doidge 2007-03-15 “Fascinating. Doidge’s book is a remarkable and hopeful portrait of the endless adaptability of the human brain.”—Oliver Sacks, MD, author of The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat What is neuroplasticity? Is it possible to change your brain? Norman Doidge’s inspiring guide to the new brain science explains all of this and more An astonishing new science called neuroplasticity is overthrowing the centuries-old notion that the human brain is immutable, and proving that it is, in fact, possible to change your brain. Psychoanalyst, Norman Doidge, M.D., traveled the country to meet both the brilliant scientists championing neuroplasticity, its healing powers, and the people whose lives they’ve transformed—people whose mental limitations, brain damage or brain trauma were seen as unalterable. We see a woman born with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, blind people who learn to see, learning disorders cured, IQs raised, aging brains rejuvenated, stroke patients learning to speak, children with cerebral palsy learning to move with more grace, depression and anxiety disorders successfully treated, and lifelong character traits changed. Using these marvelous stories to probe mysteries of the body, emotion, love, sex, culture, and education, Dr. Doidge has written an immensely moving, inspiring book that will permanently alter the way we look at our brains, human nature, and human potential.
Superperformance Stocks Richard S. Love 1977 The Author suggests using the 4-year political cycle as an investment strategy. And subsequently, he writes about the superperformance stocks of the time, and the common denominators of those stocks. What traits do they have in common, how to find them? Definition of a superperformance stock: "One that at least tripled in price and increased at a minimum rate of three times during a two-year period. A move was considered ended if the price failed to reach a new high in less than six months, or if there was a price reaction of 25 percent or more." Stocks that have a chance to become superperformance stocks share some of these characteristics: Large increases of earnings, especially if the large increase comes as a surprise. Mergers and acquisitions. New management. New products. Large increases of earnings and sales are the main reason for a stock to rise substantially. Other reasons come into play as well, as mergers and acquisitions, new management and new products are all in service of providing higher earning power for a company. The market discounts the future, and that might be enough to push the price higher significantly, even though the increase in earnings is not still visible. However, if those expectations are not realized in the future, the price of the stock may drop severely, as the move would inflate the valuation. The best results come after the market has experienced a severe correction or a bear market, because that is the time when there would be many bargain opportunities in that environment. The environment is dependent on the fiscal and monetary situation, as the lowering of interest rates and fiscal stimulation lead to higher stock prices. And that is the environment where superperformance stocks are abundant and have the most potential. Rising interest rates and fiscal tightening are negative for stocks in general, and in that kind of environment it is much harder to find a stock with potential to have a large increase in price. History often repeats itself in the stock market. The names of the stocks change, but the overall situation is always similar. Acceleration of earning power is the most important thing to look for when examining the potential of a stock to become a superperformance stock. And the superperformance move will most often coincide with the bull market cycle of the general market.
The Book of Baphomet Julian Vayne 2012-08 You hold in your hands the material result of many years' hard craft. This Book contains some of the secrets of Life itself; or rather, the occult deity of Life on Earth, Baphomet. Horned, vital, beautiful, awe full, our aeons old Chaos Magick idol finds a name from the Knights' Templar, then goes incognito through the Enlightenment (when flourished those great natural philosophers beloved of science historians), before emerging via devil worship and witchcraft into this era of Deep Ecology. Darwin could have used a picture of Baphomet as his frontispiece, to demonstrate the one flesh from which all species originate. Contacting this Great Spirit, the anima mundi, allows access to a new way of ordering the world, with fresh visions of how and why we could Live. Here the authors weave strands from their lives into a rich tapestry of images, which might give you a pointer or two towards your own self-realisation, whilst amusing, entertaining, and instructing along the way. Revolution, evolution, leap beyond the apocalypse to the Now!

This is the blockbuster bestselling Origami Yoda series, written by Tom Angleberger, author of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi: Beware the Power of the Dark Side, showcasing his proven knack for authentically capturing the intrigues, fads, and dramas of middle school in "a satisfying tale of friendship and just resistance to authority" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). Praise for Art2-D2's Guide to Folding and Doodling "Once again, Angleberger's humor, which presents itself in the text through characters from the series, in both human and origami form, connects with middle-grade readers. 'Art2' and the other 'Origami Yoda' books are the ultimate example of the by-a-fan/for-the-fans format, which succeeds if executed properly. This did he." --Florida Times-Union "Excellent activity-book offshoot of Angleberger's bestselling Origami Yoda series... The banter and tongue-and-cheek humor of the previous books is present, along with encouragement." --Publishers Weekly "The presentation's offbeat attitude, ingenuity, and wit, many libraries will want to stock this high interest book..." --Booklist "Fans (and nonfans, if there are any) of the "Origami Yoda" series (Abrams) and website will find new opportunities aplenty for foolery in this spinoff compendium of progressively challenging hands-on instructions for drawing, folding, and goofing around with (mostly) Star Wars characters." --School Library Journal

Magic Ernesto De Martino 2015 The work of Ernesto de Martino is relatively unknown outside of Italian intellectual circles, but with a growing interest in his ethnographic and theoretical work, he is now widely considered to be one of the great anthropologists and historians of religion of the early twentieth century. Magic: A theory from the south (first published in Italian asSud e Magia) is de Martino's stunning ethnography of ceremonial magic in southern Italy (Luciana/Basilicata), an intimate “other” to Western European civilization. Rigorous and detailed analyses of evil eye, possession, witchcraft, religious belief, “binding,” exorcism, and various magical practices lead de Martino to question the historical, ideological, ritual, psychological, and pragmatic grounds of the arts of enchantment. The question here is not whether magic is irrational or rational, but why it came to be perceived as a problem of knowledge in the first place. De Martino's response is contextualized within his wider, pathbreaking theorization of ritual, as well as his politically sensitive reading of the south's subaltern culture in its historical encounter with Western science. In addition to the ethnography, De Martino's historical anthropology traces the development of “jettatura” in Enlightenment Naples as a paradigm of the complex dynamics between hegemonic and subaltern cultures. Far ahead of its time, this first English edition (annotated and translated by Dorothy Louise Zinn) stands to be as relevant as ever as anthropologists (among others) continue to theorize modernity's continued tryst with magical thinking. 1st Edition Publication Data:  2001. Sud e magia. Milano: Feltrinelli Editore. ISBN: 9788807816758.
