Bought Out and Spent! Recovery from Compulsive Shopping & Spending: Terrence Daryl Shulman
Shopping is a raging phenomenon among developed countries and has been studied over and over. Sociologists say it´s a female drive in an attempt to explain the differences in shopping behavior between men and women. It was said that the same obsession of men over sports can be linked to the way women go crazy on Black Friday sales or on mall openings. In the evolution of man, the male species are known to be hunters while women have always been the gatherers or the ones who are in charge of finding things for their offspring. It is quite a reductionist perspective and is still widely debated, but one thing´s for sure: shopping will keep women enchanted for years to come. This behavior is not exactly exclusive to women though, because when you consider the purchase of gadgets, large screen TV, and high-end cars, the tendency of men to make expensive purchases is surely noticeable. However, this is limited to a targeted section of the market. Women, on the other hand, will shop whenever, wherever, and whatever! This is because men consider shopping as merely a purchase of specific merchandise, while for women, it´s a whole different world altogether. It´s hard to not love shopping. The glitz, glamour, scents of a newly minted shopping mall, the vibrant colors, the excitement, the friends you meet along the way, the giddy feeling of being able to all the fabulous things that money can buy - all of these are hard to resist! But when does shopping stop being a charm and starts haunting you like a curse? Where do you draw the line between recreation and obsession? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Millian Quinteros.

The law of attraction is based on the idea that everything in the universe has a ´´polarity´´, meaning that everything - from the food you eat, to the people you talk to, to the things you say, to the things you think - contains an either positive or negative kind of energy. Notice that being with people who complain or rant a lot tends to make you feel bad, even though you´re not exactly experiencing what they´re going through - that´s the law of attraction working its magic. When you focus on negative stuff, then more negative stuff will happen to you. On the other hand, when you focus on positive stuff, then more positive stuff will happen to you. Fortunately, there is a way to manipulate the law of attraction and make it work for you: by changing your beliefs, using the power of positive affirmation. Positive affirmations give you a fresh pair of eyes to see the world and, therefore, give you courage to achieve a lot of things you never knew were possible. 1. Language: English.

A groundbreaking exploration of how cyberspace is changing the way we think, feel, and behave. Mary Aiken is the world´s leading expert in forensic cyberpsychology - a discipline that combines psychology, criminology, and technology to investigate the intersection where technology and human behavior meet. In this, her first book, Aiken has created a starting point for all future conversations about how the Internet is shaping development and behavior, societal norms and values, children, safety, security, and our perception of the world. Cyberspace is an environment full of surveillance, but who is looking out for us? The Cyber Effect offers a fascinating and chilling look at a future we can still do something about. Drawing on her own research and extensive experience with law enforcement, Mary Aiken covers a wide range of subjects, from the impact of screens on the developing child to the explosion of teen sexting and the acceleration of compulsive and addictive behaviors online (gaming, shopping, pornography). She examines the escalation of cyberchondria (anxiety produced by self-diagnosing online), cyberstalking, and organized cybercrime in the deep web. Aiken provides surprising statistics and incredible but true case studies of hidden trends that are shaping our culture and raising troubling questions about where the digital revolution is taking us. The Cyber Effect will upend your assumptions about your online life and forever change the way you think about the technology you, your friends, and your family use. Listeners will gain a new understanding of the rapid change taking shape around us and come away with critical tools to become part of this very necessary conversation. 1. Language: English.
