Too fast to think : how to reclaim your creativity in a

Exposing current work environments and practices, this
book argues that these two elements are detrimental to
and block creativity from flourishing. Employees are too
busy, too overloaded with constant information, and too
focused on analytical left brain thinking to allow for
diffuse thinking, which is usually when creativity can
flow uninterrupted and where the best ideas emerge. The
author promotes a model that re-balances left and right
brain thinking, takes a holistic approach to the process
of thoughts (including emotional thinking and wellbeing),
and promotes eight traits that are inherently linked to
creation and innovation. Supported by the latest research
he teaches how to retrain the brain into allowing
creative ideas to emerge, before being shut down by
constant interruptions and self-doubts.

Realist ethics : just war traditions as power politics /
Valerie Morkevicius.-- Cambridge: Cambridge University

ISBN : 9781108402477.
172.42 MOR 146286
Just war thought is imagined as speaking truth to power -
forcing realist decision-makers to abide by moral limits
governing the ends and means of the use of force. This
book argues that this oversimplification is not only
wrong, but dangerous. Casting just war thought to be the
alternative to realism makes just war thinking out to be
what it is not - and cannot be: a mechanism for avoiding
war. A careful examination of the evolution of just war
thinking in the Christian, Islamic, and Hindu traditions
shows that it is no stranger to pragmatic politics. The
author proposes here a radical recasting of the
relationship between just war thinking and realism.

This book exposes the secrets embedded in our internet
searches. In Internet searches, however, people confess
their secrets - about sexless marriages, mental health
problems, even racist views. The author shows that this
could just be the most important dataset ever collected.
He reveals information we can use to change our culture
and the questions we-re afraid to ask that might be
essential to our health - both emotional and physical.

The economic liberalization of India, changes in global
structures, and the rapid emergence of India on the
global landscape have been accompanied by the dramatic
rise in popular, public, and elite discourses that offer
the promise to imagine India. These discourses conceive
of India through specific frames of global change and
simultaneously offer prescriptive suggestions for the
pathways to fulfilling the vision. Both as summary
accounts of the shifts taking place in India and in the
relationships of India with other global actors as well
as roadmaps for the immediate and longer term directions
for India, these discourses offer meaningful entry points
into elite imaginations of India.

International environmental agreements provide a basis
for countries to address ecological problems on a global
scale. However, countries are heterogeneous with respect
to their economic structures and to the problems relating
to the environment that they encounter. Therefore,
economic externalities and global environmental conflicts
are common and can cause problems in implementation and
compliance with international agreements.

The first volume illustrates the distinctive industrial
dynamics of India’s media economy, tracking the deeply
embedded cultural, political and economic forces that
determine its everyday operation. It posits a
comprehensive approach to understanding the nature of
media resources, the negotiation of industrial norms and
the cultural context of a media economy firmly situated
in the realities of India’s distinct regions, cultures
and human networks. The second volume provides a
comprehensive analysis of the interlocking markets that
constitute the media economy, focusing upon its
particular commodity forms, labour conditions and spaces
of consumption. It argues for the necessary consideration
of multiple and interdependent markets in explicating our
everyday encounters with media.

In this book, the author presents overwhelming evidence
that teams that include different kinds of thinkers
outperform homogenous groups on complex tasks, producing
what he calls "diversity bonuses." These bonuses include
improved problem solving, increased innovation, and more
accurate predictions--all of which lead to better
performance and results. He shows that various types of
cognitive diversity--differences in how people perceive,
encode, analyze, and organize the same information and
experiences--are linked to better outcomes. He then
describes how these cognitive differences are influenced
by other kinds of diversity, including racial and gender
differences--in other words, identity diversity.

This volume contains seventeen path-breaking essays by
Indian, European, Indo-Scottish, and Indo-American
scholars. It seeks to affirm heterogeneity and
difference, celebrating multi-dimensional modes of
looking at South Asian diasporic cinema and theatre in
the new millennium. The essays in the anthology engage in
critical conversations around diverse themes-from -home-
and -homeland- in Afghan Cinema, to the Partition of
India. This co-mingling of multiple voices articulates
the new, topical and sometimes radical dimensions of
contemporary South Asian film and drama. In essence, the
credo of this compendium is to breach extant disciplinary
boundaries and establish a stimulating and thought-
provoking rapport with its readers. This anthology,
arguably the first of its kind, will be useful to both
research students and academics around the world.
