6 The Secret of Successful Learning

The Secret of Successful Learning

Maria Monalisa Victorio Handoko | Educational


Everyone faces challenges during their school life. Whether they are because of fellow students, academic pressure, or high expectations, we have all been there. In order to overcome these challenges, we must learn to put up a fight. This fight can only be won by the collective effort of three parties; parents, students, and teachers. Successful learning cannot be achieved if parents are unsupportive or if teachers do not nurture their students properly.Problems like bullying, lack of motivation, laziness or academic pressure can be tackled if we understand the root of the problem. And those problems do have a single source. So which of these issues contributed to your inner struggles throughout your school years? What is the root of the problem?

13 The Parousia-Expectation: Does It Impact Evangelization

The Parousia-Expectation: Does It Impact Evangelization

Irfan Iftekhar | Religious


The academic study of religion takes place in a secular rather than a faith-based context. Since it aims to understand religion from a perspective that can be shared by all, and limits itself to evidence that is available to all, one will not be required to try to prove or refute particular religious beliefs. It is important not to let personal religious beliefs influence conclusions. In the context of academic writing, neither faith nor tradition constitutes an adequate basis for an argument. This eBook entitled "The Parousia-Expectation: Does it impact evangelization" is perhaps one of my most challenging work, not because this subject is unique, but because I am a Muslim and have studied the Bible when I was in Don Bosco School, Calcutta, and of-course now.

25 How is Society Possible?

How is Society Possible?

Georg Simmel. | Sociology


Georg Simmel (1858-1918, Germany) was born in Berlin and received his doctorate in 1881. He was of Jewish ancestry and was marginalized within the German academic system. Only in 1914 did Simmel obtain a regular academic appointment, and this appointment was in Strasbourg, far from Berlin. In spite of these problems, he wrote extensively on the nature of association, culture, social structure, the city, and the economy. His writings were read by Durkheim and Weber, and Simmel contributed greatly to sociology and European intellectual life in the early part of this century. One of his most famous writings is "The Metropolis and Mental Life" (1903) and his best known book is The Philosophy of Money (1907). Simmel's ideas were very influential on the Marxist scholar Georg Lukacs (1885-1971) a...

28 Nurturing Creative Children

Nurturing Creative Children

Dr. Yew Kam Keong | Parenting/Children


Every child is a creative being. The challenge we have as parents, teachers and caregivers is to tap that creativity and maximize a child's potential. This is no small responsibility. The closer we come to nurturing that creativity in our children the greater the potential for raising a global network of happy adults. Once children reach the age where they are launched into the world via public education they are suddenly burdened with the pressure to succeed. Parents and teachers alike turn their focus on getting good grades rather than succeeding as a human being. This focus on academic excellence is extremely damaging to children.

29 No PhDs Please: This is Canada

No PhDs Please: This is Canada

Mahmood Iqbal | Economics (Academic)


This book examines the value of a PhD in Canada from a broad perspective and is written in a format suitable for a wide audience: professionals, business executives, governments and policy makers. It is presented through self-explanatory charts. The book dispels the conventional wisdom that the highest possible education is always rewarded. Earnings of PhDs in Canada are very close to those with a Masters; their unemployment rate is even higher, quite opposite of their counterparts in the United States and OECD countries. A government report shows that a good number of them are driving taxies. There are three main reasons for the deplorable state of Canada’s PhDs: declining academic positions due to continued budget cuts (universities being the main employer), antipathy of poli...

32 Crosscultural Doctoring on and off the Beaten Path

Crosscultural Doctoring on and off the Beaten Path

William Le Maire | Biography


This is about career change and early retirement. The death of my best friend at a young age made us (my wife and I) reflect on the many other things in life we wanted to do besides work. Thus at age 55 I resigned from my successful academic career and started working intermittently in many different cultures in the US and abroad. This was the best decision we ever made and we have never looked back. It is hoped that the book will inspire others to get off the beaten path and possibly even motivate those with similar experiences to write about it. The book is meant for medical as well as non medical people. It is written in chronological fashion as a series of anecdotes, some medical, some non-medical, some funny, some not so funny, some in the USA and some in different cultures abroad. These anecdotes are interspersed with some philosophical considerations. I hope you will enjoy it and convince others to read it. You can download it for free.

33 Good Health at Low Cost 25 Years On.  What Makes a Successful Health System?

Good Health at Low Cost 25 Years On. What Makes a Successful Health System?

Dina Balabanova, Martin McKee, et al | Health


Why do some low and middle income countries manage to achieve better health outcomes while others fail? What factors drive improvements in the health system and in access to primary health care? These questions are relevant today as in 1985 when the Rockefeller Foundation published what was to become a seminal report - Good health at low cost. This new edition draws on a series of new case studies from Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Kyrgyzstan, Tamil Nadu and Thailand provides fresh insights into the role of effective institutions, innovation and country ownership in catalyzing improvements in health. New challenges such as increasing urbanization, a growing private sector and an upsurge in non-communicable diseases suggest that both learning from the past and new thinking are required to strengthen health systems. This edition provides both and is a vital source for academics, policy-makers and practitioners grappling with how to improve health in low and middle income countries.

35 The Third Skillset

The Third Skillset

David Kershaw | Business


The world is full of teamwork, but teamwork is a high risk activity. It often results in low productivity, inconsistent, even disengagement and conflict. Consultants and academics would have us believe teamwork takes leadership, emotional intelligence and other hard to define, hard to learn soft skills. This is only partly true. Project management is likewise challenging. Standards like the PMBOK focus on hard skills, like PERT, Critical Path and Monte Carlo Simulation. But these often necessary hard skills are simply not sufficient. The Third Skillset is a different approach. It looks at the skills that lie between hard and soft skills. Accessible, consistent and easily applied, these skills are a toolkit for more effective teamwork that anyone can apply.
