    Schizophrenia is a brain disorder that’s commonly inherited from the previous generation(s). But what makes this disorder so different from other ones? And more importantly, what can we do about it? 
      
    One of the things that many people overlook, is that those who have schizophrenia lack high doses of Vitamin D. Other side effects are that they are typically highly creative, that they suffer from psychosis during stressful times in their lives, and their social interactions with others can have various impacts. 
      
    Read about all these positive and negative consequences, so that you, too, can have a better grasp of the disorder and cope with it more effectively.

    It's time to outsmart your worry and anxiety. Drawing on the same cutting-edge psychology presented in author David Carbonell's The Worry Trick, this irreverent, on-the-go guide offers ten powerful "counter-intuitive" strategies to help you put worry in its place—anytime, anywhere.Anxiety is a powerful force. It makes us question our decisions and ourselves, worry about the future, and it fills our days with dread and emotional turbulence. But what if we understood that anxiety is merely a trick of the mind, trying to convince us we're in danger? Anxiety is like a magician behind the curtain, playing subtle tricks on us to convince us that we're in danger when we're not. When we understand this, we can observe our anxious feelings with some distance.Based on the author's popular book, The Worry Trick, this helpful and humorous guide identifies the "trick" of chronic anxiety, and provides the ten most powerful techniques based in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you respond differently to panic, anxiety, worry, and phobias. Once you learn to respond differently to the worry trick, you'll be able to break the cycle of chronic anxiety for good.

    There is the widespread belief that management and leadership are inextricably linked, that every manager is (or should be) a good leader. As a result, management leadership has been elevated to a cause worthy of promotion, and leadership as a term has become a mantra chanted by all and sundry, with numerous voices proclaiming numerous theories, many of which are spoken as facts, particularly by those who are disciples of this management-leadership cause. Examples of their output can be found in any management texts, in texts specializing in engineering management, and, as one might expect, in texts devoted exclusively to the leading cause. Numerous literary fallacies and paradoxes will be examined, and an unusual literary source will be used to illustrate various leadership styles.The concept of leadership will be applied to engineer positions, and some potentially divisive conclusions will be presented.Leadership is a critical field because it affects the entire world. In other words, it is a vital management function that enables organizations to achieve maximum efficiency and effectiveness. Numerous individuals inquire why we should pursue this field of study or why this assignment is necessary. Not only is leadership a position, but it is also a process that shapes how people and organizations interact. All nations, business enterprises, educational institutions, and organizations succeed primarily due to effective leadership.
