Summary

Do we really need more consumer ‘stuff’? While most everyone will answer ‘No,’ we still see thousands of new products and services launched every day.These compete for our attention with already inundated markets filled with existing products – in the midst of the most intense information flows in history.Traditional adverts are not a cost-effective solution and like much more.So how can you successfully catch consumers’ interest?This book provides the answer. It’s all about adapting to the demands of entertainment – which means product stories that are simultaneously sales driving and identity building.The book presents volumes of examples – including how one of the most wide-spread breakfast cereals was originally developed as a way to counteract masturbation. It also fully explains concepts like Business mindfulness, the ‘Happy Valley phenomenon,’ and ‘Copperfield rhetoric.’ Moreover, you read about how a single word is used to encourage consumers to buy eggs from chickens that are less healthy and how consumers were led to pay 12 times more for their bowl of oatmeal porridge. Before concluding, the book provides a simple model for how to build quality product stories using four cornerstones, five elements that sell stories, and the ‘ICE’ you need.Ingemar Fredriksson has over 40 years’ experience in business development and marketing while holding senior management positions in many Swedish and international companies. His previous books have all reached best-seller listings, several for many years, having received many positive reviews and wide media attention.

    Martha, Emily and Ben are thriving teachers. In Thrive they share their personal experiences and demonstrate how you too can thrive during the tricky training year, the daunting NQT year and the crucial RQT year. Using their collective insights, and plenty of evidence-informed strategies and advice, they detail how you can get to grips with the classroom basics - from behaviour management and lesson planning to differentiation and providing for SEND - and effectively continue your professional development.
    This book is not just a survival manual to help teachers get through their first three years in teaching. Nor is it an academic text that has been written by authors who have only a distant memory of what it takes to stand in front of a class of teenagers for the first time. Thrive is something very different. It gives both the aspiring and the newly qualified the support and guidance to become a thriving teacher, and has been co-authored by three recently qualified teachers who in this book invest their passion and practical knowledge to inspire and inform others who want to pursue enjoyable and rewarding careers in teaching.
    Thrive is divided into three parts specifically detailing what can be expected in the training year, NQT year and RQT year respectively - with the authors' commentary threaded throughout to demonstrate how the ideas discussed can be successfully put into practice. Their accounts are also complemented by expert advice from two people who are at the very top of their profession, Lianne Allison and Dr Simon Thompson, who provide wider perspectives drawn from a wealth of teaching experience. Forty of the book's forty-six chapters begin with a checklist outlining what a developing teacher is expected to do, and each chapter ends with a to-do list that can be used as a quick reference point to structure the strategies implemented. These to-do lists are also followed by lists of suggested further reading so that readers can delve deeper into topics and fields of research that they find particularly interesting or relevant.
    Furthermore, the book offers helpful counsel on choosing the best training route as well as an in-depth analysis of the change in priorities for busy teachers as they progress: encouraging constant reflection, outlining potential pathways and emphasising the importance of evidence-based practice and how new teachers can, and should, incorporate this into their teaching.
    Rooted in practical strategies and innovative ideas, Thrive is the essential guide for trainee secondary school teachers and teacher trainers.

    In today's economic and political climate, protecting yourself means asking the right questions. You can't ask the right questions if your mind's encumbered by what you think you may understand. Who's the man behind the curtain? What's this thing we call money? It's not what you think. We've burdened government with all our problems but do they have the capacity to solve them? Do we want them to? 
    What's the difference between freedom "of" and freedom "from" and why's it important? Why is this one of the most important questions you can ask? I'm putting out an APB for critical thinking skills. We need these skills at this important juncture in our nation's history. Is our political division a permanent condition? What's the one thing we all have in common? Information isn't lacking these days, which is why our ability to sift purposefully through it is critical. 
    Prepare to meet the future. It always arrives sooner than expected. Are you ready?

    Dissecting the biggest medical myths and pseudoscience, Viral BS explores how misinformation can spread faster than microbes.Can your zip code predict when you will die? Will testosterone supplements boost your libido? Should you space out childhood vaccines? Does talcum powder cause cancer? Why do some doctors recommend e-cigarettes while other doctors recommend you stay away from them? Health information—and misinformation—is all around us, and it can be hard to separate the two. A long history of unethical medical experiments and medical mistakes, along with a host of celebrities spewing anti-science beliefs, has left many wary of science and the scientists who say they should be trusted. How do we stay sane while unraveling the knots of fact and fiction to find out what we should really be concerned about, and what we can laugh off?In Viral BS, journalist, doctor, professor, and CDC-trained disease detective Seema Yasmin, driven by a need to set the record straight, dissects some of the most widely circulating medical myths and pseudoscience. Exploring how epidemics of misinformation can spread faster than microbes, Dr. Yasmin asks why bad science is sometimes more believable and contagious than the facts. Each chapter covers a specific myth, whether it has endured for many years or hit the headlines more recently.
