Finally, two humanitarian scientists, Drs. Maggie James and Jangbu Tong, have developed the fountain of youth by slightly altering and augmenting a plant growing naturally in northeast Nepal. The properties in the plant have the potential to prevent diseases, even those caused by deadly viruses, improve the quality of life for the sick, and turn back the clock for the elderly. It’s a win, win . . . Or is it? As news of the miracle plant is leaked by an enthusiastic Peace Corps volunteer, envy, greed, and power take over, by way of a merchant herbalist, politicians, bankers, and their lobbyists. As these interests collide, the United States and China are pitted against each other, and both must face Nepali Gurkhas, provoking an international incident that will decide whether a health miracle will be available to all, or sold for record profits.

Once a diabetic, always a diabetic. The next best thing to do is to quickly learn how to navigate, manage and live optimally with this condition. This book is a guide for a new diabetic, an intermediate diabetic and for someone who has lived with diabetes for more than a decade. I can say this confidently because I have crossed all these stages as a diabetic myself. This book is also for the caretaker at home who sometimes manages to understand this condition much better than the diabetic herself. Each chapter in this book is a convergence of my diverse experiences across the various stages of my diabetes lifecycle. They have crystallised into scenarios with solutions thereof and work towards helping you understand and overcome them without experiencing the negative effects yourself or experiencing them only minimally. This is how I thought I could contribute to my fellow Indian diabetic. By passing on my immense learning and hoping that you will absorb it all and collapse your own individual learning curves. --- Godspeed.

Once again, John Ralston Saul presents the story of Canada’s past so that we may better understand its present – and imagine a better future. Historic moments are always uncomfortable, Saul writes in this impassioned argument, calling on all of us to embrace and support the comeback of Aboriginal peoples. This, he says, is the great issue of our time – the most important missing piece in the building of Canada. The events that began late in 2012 with the Idle No More movement were not just a rough patch in Aboriginal relations with the rest of Canada. What is happening today between Aboriginals and non-Aboriginals is not about guilt or sympathy or failure or romanticization of the past. It is about citizens’ rights. It is about rebuilding relationships that were central to the creation of Canada. These relationships are just as important to its continued existence. The centrality of Aboriginal issues and peoples has the potential to open up a more creative way of imagining ourselves and a more honest narrative for Canada. Wide in scope but piercing in detail, The Comeback presents a powerful portrait of modern Aboriginal life in Canada, in contrast with the perceived failings so often portrayed in politics and in media. Saul illustrates his arguments by compiling a remarkable selection of letters, speeches and writings by Aboriginal leaders and thinkers, showcasing the extraordinarily rich, moving and stable indigenous point of view across the centuries.

Raising the Spiritual Light Quotient

The concept of raising the spiritual light quotient is similar to the intelligence quotient used in modern psychology, the IQ test. However the spiritual light quotient is not the same as intelligence. Rather, the SLQ reflects one¿s ability to understand spiritual concepts, to meditate and to connect with other dimensions. It also is a measurement of one¿s ability to understand the relationship between Earth and the environment of the Earth, and Earth¿s relationship to the galaxy. Finally, it is a measurement of one¿s ability to understand the existence of other dimensions as well as the relationship between the ascended masters and guides and our journey to higher realms for soul evolution. Thus it appears necessary to look at the SLQ of a person, the SLQ of an area and the SLQ of a planet. All of the channeling I bring forth is based on the concept of the Sacred Triangle, which is a new paradigm for spirituality. This paradigm states that in order to heal Earth and bring everything into balance, one must unite the concepts of galactic spirituality with ancient mystical thought and with the energies of native peoples, including Native Americans.

In this world, interconnectivity is in crisis. Functionality and financial rewards seemingly guide our working relations and are affecting our ability to relate through others and ourselves. The human perspective seems to be lost, leading to divided and less productive teams and organizations. The Connection Quotient enables an honest, courageous and humane interconnection to form while still focusing on financial outcomes and results – developing these relations to improve the business networks they serve. The CQ enables us to illuminate our human qualities and use these to connect with others, discuss differences, expand insight and encourage the development of new ideas. The CQ will introduce a new workplace culture where organizations and teams can approach the personal and professional through a more transparent and inclusive style. Ultimately, the CQ makes it possible to play ‘hard on the ball, and soft on the individual’.

"Challenges are gifts that force us to search for a new center of gravity. Don't fight them. Just find a new way to stand."― Oprah Winfrey "There's nothing as exciting as a comeback - seeing someone with dreams, watching them fail, and then getting a second chance" -Rachel Griffiths I am sure we have faced unexpected situations, at some stage in our life. Life has always been unpredictable for everyone. Be it a child or the most powerful person, no one is spared! Things do not turn out as we predict them to be. This is true for every profession and individual. The most successful man or woman will vouch for the above statements. It also holds true for every relationship, at some point in our lives. As parents, when we raise our children or hold on to a failing relationship, these unpredictable situations follow us. It becomes difficult for us to overcome them. It is when failure stares at us, Clawing back seems a distant reality. A lot of us believe that it is not everyone's cup of tea. There are a chosen few who have a strong character and stage a comeback form any situation. But our mind has other plans. A comeback is manufactured! And is the building block for a new life of hope and happiness. We all stage a comeback sooner a later but the time taken differs with every individual. The intention of writing the book is to make the reader realize the automation of thoughts in their present decision making. It will also pave way for breaking these fixed ideas which were always causing hindrances in their growth and relationship. What a comeback! Is a semi-fiction and an inspiring journey of 10 friends who go through torrid times in their lives. The book gives us an insight into the functioning of the thought processes that govern our responses both in favorable and in tough times. The stories of Sam and his friends make the readers realize that they too can be superheroes in their lives and they do not need to wait for a miracle, to come up with the right decisions in life. The book is based on the laws of neuroplasticity which have been formulated based on neuropsychology and the changes taking place in our brain. These laws were always existing in our lives but we never realized that these were making our thought process autonomous (without our conscious control). Each and every story is about a common man, his everyday problems and his tirade against the uncertainties of life. The author gives a journey into the brain of the characters and how the brain functions and overcomes difficult situations. This is the first time when someone has tried to explain the complex mechanisms of neuroscience with the help of stories. The mixture of stories and science has been carefully woven in such a way that a fiction reader who is interested in stories will gain an insight into their fixed viewpoints and its correlation to their past events. "No one has ever achieved great heights if they have not mastered the art of the comeback." Dr. Chirag Jain

'This book is a must-read for anyone who might seek personal, and perhaps, physical and psychological changes in their lives.' Raymond LaRaja, M.D., clinical professor of surgery at Mt. Sinai Medical School and former clinical professor of surgery at New York University Medical School. Gorgeous faces stare out at us from the pages of glossy magazines or appear larger-than-life on television and movie screens. With role models such as these, it's easy to find yourself wanting. During his 25-year career as a plastic surgeon, Robert M. Tornambe, M.D., has worked with thousands of women and spent countless hours contemplating the nature of beauty - particularly in situations where he was asked to perform a procedure he believed would diminish his patient's natural good looks. In an attempt to provide as many options as possible, he focused on helping women understand that while surgery has its place, it isn't the only roadmap to looking and feeling great. This led Dr. Tornambe to devise The Beauty Quotient Formula - a healthier way to look at beauty. While physical traits do play a role, Dr. Tornambe shows us that what makes any woman truly attractive is based largely on confidence, charisma, personality and a solid beauty routine - and that more often than not, going under the knife isn't necessary. The Beauty Quotient Formula will help you transform yourself with a no-fail method for looking and feeling more beautiful!

In basketball, as in most sports, a large part of a coach’s responsibility is to prepare his or her team for games. Yet, little time in practice is typically devoted to readying the players and coaches for specific game situations. For instance, what are the various ways to use dead ball moments to maximum advantage? What adjustments should be made to launch a comeback in particular circumstances? When is it favorable to purposefully miss a foul shot? In Odds-On Basketball Coaching: Crafting High-Percentage Strategies for Game Situations, Michael J. Coffino presents an innovative system for coaches to prepare for specific game scenarios. Coffino challenges coaches to think differently about what they emphasize in practice, placing greater value on preparing for recurring game situations, crafting strategies by assessing the odds, and creating a culture that elevates how players think about the game. Each chapter begins with an actual game scenario that illustrates the chapter’s content and includes discussions of notable college and professional basketball games in order to demonstrate specific points. Odds-On Basketball Coaching provides a framework for making game decisions beyond instincts and habits. It is intended, more than anything, to stimulate coaches and players to think comprehensively and realistically about how to approach games and practices, fostering an environment where everyone can more incisively make game-time decisions. While high school and youth basketball coaches will find this book most helpful, coaches at all levels will benefit from this novel approach to the game.
