    “One of the most useful books I’ve read about mental illnesses . . . It demystifies our complicated medical and legal system.” —Pete Earley, New York Times-bestselling author of Crazy: A Father’s Search Through America’s Mental Health Madness 
     
    Finally, a book that explains everything you ever wanted to know about psychiatry! 
     
    In Shrink Rap, three psychiatrists from different specialties provide frank answers to questions such as: 
     
    • What is psychotherapy, how does it work, and why don’t all psychiatrists do it? 
     
    • When are medications helpful? 
     
    • What happens on a psychiatric unit? 
     
    • Can Prozac make people suicidal? 
     
    • Why do many doctors not like Xanax? 
     
    • Why do we have an insanity defense? 
     
    • Why do people confess to crimes they didn’t commit? 
     
    Based on the authors’ hugely popular blog and podcast series, this book is for patients and everyone else who is curious about how psychiatrists work. Using compelling patient vignettes, Shrink Rap explains how psychiatrists think about and address the problems they encounter, from the mundane (how much to charge) to the controversial (involuntary hospitalization). The authors face the field’s shortcomings head-on, revealing what other doctors may not admit about practicing psychiatry. 
     
    Candid and humorous, Shrink Rap gives a closeup view of psychiatry, peering into technology, treatments, and the business of the field. If you’ve ever wondered how psychiatry really works, let the Shrink Rappers explain. 
     
    “A fascinating peek into the minds of those who study minds.” —The Washington Post 
     
    “Most of us easily understand how to treat a broken arm, but a fractured psyche? That’s an entirely different matter. Or is it? This clear-headed presentation of psychiatric services and methods covers a lot of ground and achieves a conversational tone that’s both educational and entertaining.” —Baltimore Magazine

    A groundbreaking and comprehensive order of battle for German ground troops in WWII, from the invasion of Poland to the final defeat in Berlin.An indispensable reference work for Second World War scholars and enthusiasts, German Ground Forces of World War II captures the continuously changing character of Nazi ground forces throughout the conflict. For the first time, readers can follow the career of every German division, corps, army, and army group as the German armed forces shifted units to and from theaters of war. Organized by sections including Theater Commands, Army Groups, Armies, and Corps Commands, it presents a detailed analysis of each corresponding order of battle for every German field formation above division. This innovative resource also describes the orders of battle of the myriad German and Axis satellite formations assigned to security commands throughout occupied Europe and the combat zones, as well as those attached to fortress commands and to the commanders of German occupation forces across Europe.  An accompanying narrative describes the career of each field formation and includes the background and experience of many of their most famous commanding officers.

    Story... It is about a story, the plot, and its characters. You, blog writers, are storytellers. Here is the twist, you are also one of the main characters. The blog has an angle for the plot and its perception of the world around it. Blog, as an entity, has an identity, the way of thinking and acting. It has ideas of its own. It is a great help to define these for the blog and yourself as the writer before you start chucking in your best ideas and publishing them.  
    Blogs want to be found on Google. For this, their content should be countered on the Reader. 
    Not everyone will use the same words to search. To search relevant content, they will use Semantic words. Your job is to write content which covers these Semantic search.  
    The reason I am writing this book is because it would make me feel so happy if I can help people understand the core concepts of blog writing. This was a struggle for me when I started writing blogs. I believe that knowing a basic working structure gives people the opportunity to leap forward faster. By helping others to decode basic concepts, I know I am also helping myself as I embark on another journey of taking responsibility. My mission is to make people learn some life-changing concepts quicker regardless of where they find themselves in life.

  • Reactive Power Compensation - cover

    Reactive Power Compensation

    Power systems have two components of apparent power: active and reactive power. Both components are necessary for functioning of electrical systems. The active power is the average power absorbed by the resistive load. The reactive power is the measure of energy exchange between the source and reactive power of load. Energy storage devices do not dissipate or supply power, but exchange power with the rest of system. Active power is the one that is converted to other forms of energy in the load yet reactive power is only responsible for magnetizing purposes.  Power factor is a ratio depicting how much of the power supplied is real. The reactive current contribute in the value of the overall magnitude of current in transmission lines causing unnecessarily high line currents and low power factor. Since a low power factor means higher amount of apparent power need to be supplied by the utility company, thus the company must also use bigger generators, large transformers and thicker transmission/distribution lines. This requires a higher capital expenditure and operational cost which usually result in the cost being passed to the consumer.In this research, we seek to identify the effects of a low power factor on Swaziland Electricity Companys power supply system and recommend possible solutions to the problem. The results are useful in determining how to optimally deliver power to a load at a power factor that is reasonably close to unity, thus reducing the utilitys operational costs while increasing the quality of the service being supplied.
