Power Shopping: James Bauhaus
By one expert´s prediction, within 20 years half of Americans will have body implants that tell retailers how they feel about specific products as they browse their local stores. The notion may be outlandish, but it reflects executives´ drive to understand shoppers in the aisles with the same obsessive detail that they track us online. In fact, a hidden surveillance revolution is already taking place inside brick-and-mortar stores, where Americans still do most of their buying. Drawing on his interviews with retail executives, analysis of trade publications, and experiences at insider industry meetings, advertising and digital studies expert Joseph Turow pulls back the curtain on these trends, showing how a new hyper-competitive generation of merchants - including Macy´s, Target, and Walmart - is already using data mining, in-store tracking, and predictive analytics to change the way we buy, undermine our privacy, and define our reputations. 1.

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.

Learn about the science of Wind Power with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Wind power is a limitless, non-polluting resource that currently contributes almost 2% of the world´s energy supply. It´s the fastest-growing resource market in the world and has become one of the biggest issues in the green movement. Importantly, there is enough of it in the atmosphere to meet the daily global energy demand five times over! But what is wind? In fact, it is the sun´s heat and the earth´s varied surfaces that create wind. When the sun´s rays hit the earth, the north and south poles receive less heat than the equator because of their angle to the sun. The earth´s vegetation, water, and geographical features such as mountains and deserts also affect air temperature. These different surface conditions create massive air pockets or ´´fronts´´ of varying temperatures. The movement of these fronts is called the ´´convection system´´. In this system, warm air starts on the Earth´s surface. The hottest air is on or near to the equator.

Your life is dominated by your unconscious mind: by thoughts you´re unaware of and movements you don´t realise you are making. Words, colours, mannerisms, and other cues you don´t realise are affecting you change what you think. The confidence you have in your ability to reason and to consciously choose what to do is caused by a series of illusions that scientists are only just beginning to understand. The discovery of these illusions will change the way we see ourselves more than the discoveries of Darwin and Copernicus. Unthink explores the unconscious decisions we make, and covers a variety of topics, ranging from how we choose politicians and romantic partners to more abstract subjects such as whether we can consciously decide to move our fingers. The counter-intuitive observations that Chris makes in the book include:If you want someone to fancy you, wear red and meet them somewhere frightening.When waitresses repeat customers´ orders back to them instead of just saying ´yes´ they receive bigger tips.To reduce your shopping bill, start at the beer and snacks end of the store and work backwards.If you sit someone in an upright chair when you give them good news they will be prouder of their achievements.Having a picture of your family on your desk might make you work harder, but you´ll be rattier when you get home! Chris Paley shows us how we can understand ourselves and others better, by having a greater understanding of the way that the unconscious mind has an impact on the way we live our lives.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1.

One of the most outspoken voices gracing the cover of magazines today encourages women to be their most confident selves, recognize their personal beauty, and reach for their highest dreams in this wise, warm, and inspiring memoir. Voluptuous beauty Ashley Graham has been modeling professionally since the age of 13. Discovered at a shopping mall in Nebraska, her stunning face and sexy curves have graced the covers of top magazines, including Cosmopolitan and British Vogue, and she was the first size 14 model to appear on the front of the wildly popular Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. The face of brands such as H&M Studio, she is also a judge for the latest season of America´s Next Top Model. And that´s only the beginning for this extraordinary talent. Ashley is leading a new generation of women breaking ground and demolishing stereotypes, transforming our ideals about body image and what is fashionable and beautiful. A woman who proves that when it comes to beauty, size is just a number, she is the voice for the body positivity movement today and a role model for all women - no matter their individual body type, shape, or weight. In this collection of insightful, provocative essays, Ashley shares her perspective on how ideas around body image are evolving - and how we still have work to do; the fun - and stress - of a career in the fashion world; her life before modeling; and her path to accepting her size without limiting her dreams - defying rigid industry standards and naysayers who told her it couldn´t be done. As she talks about her successes and setbacks, Ashley offers support for every woman coming to terms with who she is - bolstering her self-confidence and motivating her to be her strongest, healthiest, and most beautiful self. 1.
