Summary

Many millennia ago, martial arts appeared in the world, and with them a powerful tool for the construction not only of a privileged body in terms of motor skills and conditioning, but also of a differentiated mind and accumulation in terms of cognition, concentration, focus and discipline. After decades of practice, a martial arts master was, above all, a person capable of controlling their mind, becoming an absolute master of their attitude, skills and emotions. In my search for a holistic understanding of the martial arts, I researched, studied and evolved in several of these, which I like to call behavioral philosophical structures. For a greater understanding, I studied in depth the motricity, and psyche and human behavior, to through the establishment of pattern development make mapping techniques applicable behavioral, motor and emotional, of actual opponents, or of the silent struggle, fought every day in different areas of our lives, and especially in the most elusive field of battles, which is our own mind.

  • Trusts: A Practical Guide Part 1 - Professional Skills - cover

    Trusts: A Practical Guide Part 1...

    Within the genre of financial self-help, Trusts: A Practical Guide is an invaluable and rare resource for financial experts and members of the public alike who need a reference work on a subject that is, on the face of it, complex but which undeniably affects many people’s lives at one point or another. 
     
    
    Whatever your occupation or background, you are almost certain at some time to need some understanding of this subject, whether in your own financial planning or in advising those around you – and this guide is particularly helpful when dealing with a relative’s probate or the complex issues arising from an inheritance. 
    
    After thirty-five years at the top of his profession, FSA member Terry O'Halloran writes passionately and informatively, not only about his subject but also about the importance of spreading the word to others. He has seen many times first hand the benefits of well-organized and implemented financial planning on people’s lives. More poignantly, he has seen what can happen when such matters are left to chance. 
    
    Using famous historical characters, placing them in recognizable situations and using real life case histories, he explains the organization and procedure of Trusts simply and easily bringing his subject alive by putting it in a perspective that is easily assimilated by the layman. 
     
    Terry O'Halloran clearly explains the intricacies of Trusts and confronts their realities with real-life examples such as a family case involving a number of ex-wives, a business partnership that goes very expensively wrong and even the attempted murder of a director and removal of the would-be assassin (as a Trustee). 
    Building the full picture from simple steps, the author explains the merits or otherwise of trusts and their uses with life assurance and pension products. 
     
    “Trusts are the most important adjunct to life assurance, business protection, estate planning and pension provision. A basic understanding is essential,” he insists. 
    
    
    After searching in vain for a book for his own use, the need for a reference book on this subject was clear. “I needed a reference book that I could refer to during the working day but which would also be simple enough for any of my clients to understand. So I wrote one – in fact I had to write it because there was simply nothing suitable in existence. Moreover, I use it all the time. My own copies are dog-eared from use. 
     
    
    “I believe Trusts is a practical tool for the professional’s everyday use and a good guide for the layman.”

    “Filled with great strategies you can immediately put to use in your business and personal lives . . . extremely entertaining, thought-provoking.” —Tyra Banks, CEO, TYRA Beauty, and creator of America’s Next Top Model 
     
    Some negotiations are easy. Others are more difficult. And then there are situations that seem completely hopeless. Conflict is escalating, people are getting aggressive, and no one is willing to back down. And to top it off, you have little power or other resources to work with. Harvard professor and negotiation adviser Deepak Malhotra shows how to defuse even the most potentially explosive situations and to find success when things seem impossible. 
     
    Malhotra identifies three broad approaches for breaking deadlocks and resolving conflicts, and draws out scores of actionable lessons using behind-the-scenes stories of fascinating real-life negotiations, including drafting of the US Constitution, resolving the Cuban Missile Crisis, ending bitter disputes in the NFL and NHL, and beating the odds in complex business situations. But he also shows how these same principles and tactics can be applied in everyday life, whether you are making corporate deals, negotiating job offers, resolving business disputes, tackling obstacles in personal relationships, or even negotiating with children. 
     
    As Malhotra reminds us, regardless of the context or which issues are on the table, negotiation is always, fundamentally, about human interaction. No matter how high the stakes or how protracted the dispute, the object of negotiation is to engage with other human beings in a way that leads to better understandings and agreements. The principles and strategies in this book will help you do this more effectively in every situation. 
     
    “This book is magic for any deal maker.” —Daniel H. Pink, New York Times-bestselling author

    An economist’s take on “why the world’s efforts to curb the carbon dioxide emissions behind global warming have gone so wrong, and how it can do better” (Financial Times).   Despite commitments to renewable energy and two decades of international negotiations, global emissions continue to rise. Coal, the most damaging of all fossil fuels, has actually risen from 25% to almost 30% of world energy use. And while European countries congratulate themselves on reducing emissions, they’ve increased their carbon imports from China and other developing nations, who continue to expand their coal use. As standards of living improve in developing countries, coal use can only increase as well—and global temperatures along with it.   Written by an Oxford economist who specializes in environmental issues, this book goes beyond pieties and pipe dreams to address the practical realities that are preventing us from making progress on this crucial issue—and what we can do differently before it’s too late.   “Should be compulsory reading for the entire political class as well as the bureaucratic elite and the commentariat.”—New Statesman   “An optimistically levelheaded book about actually dealing with global warming.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)   “A powerful and heartfelt plea for hard-nosed realism.”—New Scientist

    furthermore is suitable for the law firms' purpose (e. g. small law firms
    must not work with the exact same rankings as large law fi rms)
    • What should law firms and all members of the legal profession do to effectively
    communicate their performance to the ranking publications in order
    to improve their own rankings?
    • How can the law firms' clients distinguish between important and less
    relevant rankings?

    and gives recommendations as to why which rankings are suitable for which
    law firms and legal fields.
