2 The Anti-Inflammation Zone - Barry Sears
Auteur : Barry Sears
Genre : Régime et nutrition
Combat silent inflammation --
the most serious health
threat you never heard of

Heart disease is the #1 killer of Americans.
Cancer is the #1 fear of Americans.
Dementia is the #1 concern of Americans.

What do these devastating illnesses have in common? All three have been linked to silent inflammation, a condition that occurs when the body's natural immune response goes awry. Silent inflammation can continue undetected for years, continually assaulting the heart, arteries, and even the brain -- and you will not even know it.

New research confirms that obesity is a primary cause of silent inflammation. And inflammation is the smoking gun that links excess body fat to today's epidemic rise in heart disease, cancer, dementia, and countless other health threats. Although the science of this relationship is complex, the bottom line is simp

6 Reducing the Weight of Life - Inja Kim
Auteur : Inja Kim
Genre : Développement personnel
There have already been many books and words arguing that we have to change ourselves before shifting our lives for the better. Of course they are absolutely right but problem is that it is one thing to know something and quite another to take action for it in reality. Always short-lived is our resolution to start a new job with the strong will. When it comes to habit or tendency it is not easy for us to get out of them even though we know they are making life very difficult for us. Why is that? Why have people different character and inclination? Why do people have difficulty in changing their preference? Is there any book to let us know how to change ourselves instead of merely telling us to change ourselves? 

This booklet, Reducing the Burden of Life is a sort of guidebook on life providing us with an answer to these questions. As in its subtitle ‘from cause

Your business success is now forever linked to the success of your customers Customer Success is the groundbreaking guide to the exciting new model of customer management. Business relationships are fundamentally changing. In the world B.C. (Before Cloud), companies could focus totally on sales and marketing because customers were often 'stuck' after purchasing.

12 Thrive! - Zehra Mahoon
Auteur : Zehra Mahoon
Genre : Développement personnel
This book is about getting consistent results from the application of the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction works – but its intellectual understanding and practical application are two different things. For the most part people are unaware that wanting something and being positive about it are not the same. Three things set this book apart from all other books written on the subject. 1. The depiction of the Law of Attraction and the thinking process in the form of diagrams that make it easy to understand how our thoughts impact our results; 2. A method that helps us to identify beliefs that operate under the surface and control our lives without our knowing it; and 3. A four step process that helps to deactivate negative beliefs permanently so that we can thrive. The end result: A life that feels good. A life that is satisfying in all its aspects, whether it be health, re

13 Seeing What Others Don't - Gary Klein
Auteur : Gary Klein
Genre : Psychologie
'No one has taught me more about the complexities and mysteries of human decision-making' Malcolm Gladwell

'Gary Klein is a living example of how useful applied psychology can be when it is done well' Daniel Kahneman

Insight is everything. At its most profound, it can change the world. At its simplest, it can solve everyday problems. It can be used to build businesses, solve crimes, progress science and make many aspects of our lives quicker, easier, bigger or better.

Yet remarkably we often unwittingly build barriers to seeing what is in front of us. Both as individuals and organisations we can hold on to flawed beliefs and conform to established processes that can interfere with our perceptions. Having clear insight can transform the way in which we understand things, the decisions we make and the actions w

Auteur : Joint Committee on Reducing Maternal and Neonatal Mortality in Indonesia, Development, Security, and Cooperation, Policy and Global Affairs, National Research Council & Indonesian Academy of Sciences
Genre : Forme et santé
The Republic of Indonesia, home to over 240 million people, is the world's fourth most populous nation. Ethnically, culturally, and economically diverse, the Indonesian people are broadly dispersed across an archipelago of more than 13,000 islands. Rapid urbanization has given rise to one megacity (Jakarta) and to 10 other major metropolitan areas. And yet about half of Indonesians make their homes in rural areas of the country. Indonesia, a signatory to the United Nations Millennium Declaration, has committed to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). However, recent estimates suggest that Indonesia will not achieve by the target date of 2015 MDG 4 - reduction by two-thirds of the 1990 under - 5 infant mortality rate (number of children under age 5 who die per 1,000 live births) - and MDG 5 - reduction by three-quarters of the 1990 maternal mortality ratio (number of maternal

15 Preventing Teen Motor Crashes - Program for a Workshop on Contributions from the Behavioral and Social Sciences in Reducing and Preventing Teen Motor Crashes
Auteur : Program for a Workshop on Contributions from the Behavioral and Social Sciences in Reducing and Preventing Teen Motor Crashes
Genre : Transport
From a public health perspective, motor vehicle crashes are among the most serious problems facing teenagers. Even after more than six months of being licensed to drive alone, teens are two to three times more likely to be in a fatal crash than are the more experienced drivers. Crash rates are significantly higher for male drivers, and young people in the United States are at greater risk of dying or being injured in an automobile than their peers around the world. In fact, in 2003 motor vehicle crashes was the leading cause of death for youth ages 16-20 in the United States.
Understanding how and why teen motor vehicle crashes happen is key to developing countermeasures to reduce their number. Applying this understanding to the development of prevention strategies holds significant promise for improving safety but many of these efforts are thwarted by a lack of evidence as to whic

16 Drinking Water Distribution Systems - Committee on Public Water Supply Distribution Systems: Assessing and Reducing Risks
Auteur : Committee on Public Water Supply Distribution Systems: Assessing and Reducing Risks
Genre : Science et nature
Protecting and maintaining water distributions systems is crucial to ensuring high quality drinking water. Distribution systems -- consisting of pipes, pumps, valves, storage tanks, reservoirs, meters, fittings, and other hydraulic appurtenances -- carry drinking water from a centralized treatment plant or well supplies to consumers’ taps. Spanning almost 1 million miles in the United States, distribution systems represent the vast majority of physical infrastructure for water supplies, and thus constitute the primary management challenge from both an operational and public health standpoint. Recent data on waterborne disease outbreaks suggest that distribution systems remain a source of contamination that has yet to be fully addressed. This report evaluates approaches for risk characterization and recent data, and it identifies a variety of strategies that could be considered to reduc

17 Urban Stormwater Management in the United States - Committee on Reducing Stormwater Discharge Contributions to Water Pollution
Auteur : Committee on Reducing Stormwater Discharge Contributions to Water Pollution
Genre : Sciences de la Terre
The rapid conversion of land to urban and suburban areas has profoundly altered how water flows during and following storm events, putting higher volumes of water and more pollutants into the nation's rivers, lakes, and estuaries. These changes have degraded water quality and habitat in virtually every urban stream system. The Clean Water Act regulatory framework for addressing sewage and industrial wastes is not well suited to the more difficult problem of stormwater discharges.

This book calls for an entirely new permitting structure that would put authority and accountability for stormwater discharges at the municipal level. A number of additional actions, such as conserving natural areas, reducing hard surface cover (e.g., roads and parking lots), and retrofitting urban areas with features that hold and treat stormwater, are recommended.

The Water Science and Technology Board has released the first report of the Committee on Public Water Supply Distribution Systems: Assessing and Reducing Risks, which is studying water quality issues associated with public water supply distribution systems and their potential risks to consumers. The distribution system, which is a critical component of every drinking water utility, constitutes a significant management challenge from both an operational and public health standpoint. This first report was requested by the EPA, as the agency considers revisions to the Total Coliform Rule with potential new requirements for ensuring the integrity of the distribution system. This first report identifies trends relevant to the deterioration of drinking water quality in distribution systems and prioritizes issues of greatest concern according to high, medium, and low priority categories.

20 Reducing the Vulnerability of FYR Macedonia's Agricultural Systems to Climate Change - William R. Sutton, Jitendra P. Srivastava, James E. Neuman, Kenneth Strzepek & Brent Boehlert
Auteur : William R. Sutton, Jitendra P. Srivastava, James E. Neuman, Kenneth Strzepek & Brent Boehlert
Genre : Secteurs et professions
Agriculture is one of the most climate-sensitive of all economic sectors. In many countries, such as in FYR Macedonia, the risks of climate change are an immediate and fundamental problem because the majority of the rural population depends either directly or indirectly on agriculture for their livelihoods. The risks of climate change to agriculture in FYR Macedonia cannot be effectively dealt with—and the opportunities cannot be effectively exploited—without a clear plan for aligning agricultural policies with climate change, developing the capabilities of key agricultural institutions, and making needed investments in infrastructure, support services and on-farm improvements. Developing such a plan ideally involves a combination of high-quality quantitative analysis, consultation with key stakeholders, particularly farmers and local agricultural experts, and investments in both hu

21 Reducing Stress Fracture in Physically Active Military Women - Subcommittee on Body Composition, Nutrition, and Health of Military Women
Auteur : Subcommittee on Body Composition, Nutrition, and Health of Military Women
Genre : Médecine
The incidence of stress fractures of the lower extremities during U.S. military basic training is significantly higher among female military recruits than among male recruits. The prevalence of this injury has a marked impact on the health of service personnel and imposes a significant financial burden on the military by delaying completion of the training of new recruits. In addition to lengthening training time, increasing program costs, and delaying military readiness, stress fractures may share their etiology with the longer-term risk of osteoporosis.
As part of the Defense Women's Health Research Program, this book evaluates the impact of diet, genetic predisposition, and physical activity on bone mineral and calcium status in young servicewomen. It makes recommendations for reducing stress fractures and improving overall bone health through nutrition education and monitored p

22 Oil in the Sea: Nonpoint Pollution, Not Oil Spills, Is the Largest Source, And Reducing It will Require Coordinated Efforts on a Number of Fronts. - Issues in Science and Technology
Auteur : Issues in Science and Technology
Genre : Ingénierie
"When it rains, it pours"--or so a motorist caught in a sudden storm might think while sliding into another vehicle. It is not merely the reduced visibility and the frenetic behavior of drivers in the rain that foster such mishaps; the streets also are slicker just after the rain begins to fall. Why? Because the oil and grease that are dripped, spewed, or otherwise inadvertently deposited by motor vehicles onto roadways are among the first materials to be lifted off by the rain, thereby literally lubricating the surface. Nor do matters end with making life miserable for motorists. The oil and grease washed off roads will most likely run into storm sewers and be discharged into the nearest body of water. From there, the oily materials often are carried to the sea, where they can cause a host of environmental problems. These events on a rainy day in the city illustrate an important but oft

23 Reducing Urban Poverty in the Global South - David Satterthwaite & Diana Mitlin
Auteur : David Satterthwaite & Diana Mitlin
Genre : Économie
Urban areas in the Global South now house most of the world’s urban population and are projected to house almost all its increase between now and 2030. There is a growing recognition that the scale of urban poverty has been overlooked – and that it is increasing both in numbers and in the proportion of the world’s poor population that live and work in urban areas.

This is the first book to review the effectiveness of different approaches to reducing urban poverty in the Global South. It describes and discusses the different ways in which national and local governments, international agencies and civil society organizations are seeking to reduce urban poverty. Different approaches are explored, for instance; market approaches, welfare, rights-based approaches and technical/professional support.

25 Preventing Or Reducing Common Health Problems: An EAP can Provide Front-End Value Within Integrated Health Plans by Introducing Clients to Services for Physical and Mental Issues (Focus: The Integration of Physical and Mental Health) - The Journal of Employee Assistance
Auteur : The Journal of Employee Assistance
Genre : Entreprise et management
Employee assistance programs historically have shared an on again, off again "affair" with health care. Indeed, EAPs' genesis as a workplace intervention program for alcohol and drug abuse suggested a linkage to a domain traditionally governed by the health care industry. In their classic studies of employee assistance programs, Erfurt, Foote, and Hinrich (1992) demonstrated the pivotal role EAP technology can play in motivating change in individual health behaviors. Success with challenges such as smoking cessation, diabetes, and hypertension illustrated how long-term costs could be mitigated through the integration of EAPs and health care. It was in this vein that Jack Eurfurt coined the term "mega-brush manager" to describe an EAP model that would, in effect, sweep, pick up, and ultimately direct a greater breadth of employee health issues to appropriate health care services and progr

26 Tax Consequences of Reducing the Principal and/Or Interest of a Note Issued in an Intrafamily Sale by a Grantor Trust - Florida Bar Journal
Auteur : Florida Bar Journal
Genre : Droit
A common estate planning technique is for a client to contribute property to a limited partnership, and for the client then to sell the limited partnership interest he or she owns to a grantor trust (1) in exchange for a promissory note. This kind of planning is often referred to as an intrafamily installment sale. (2) Under current law, the limited partnership interest being sold could be subject to an appraised aggregate discount ranging from 10 to 40 percent for lack of marketability and minority interest. If the fair market value of the assets owned by the partnership were $1 million, a 35 percent discount would result in the limited partnership interest having a $650,000 fair market value. The principal amount of the promissory note is equal to the discounted sale amount of the limited partnership interest with an interest rate equal to the applicable federal rate (the AFR) for the

This article proposes a redesign o J the Medicare inpatient prospective payment system to reduce payments made to hospitals with high complication rates. We compute risk-adjusted, expected complication rates for hospitals and compare them to actual complication rates in order to determine the number of excess complications. Hospital payment reductions then are computed based on the number of excess complications in a hospital. Medicare hospital payment could be reduced by approximately 8% ($8.5 billion) if hospitals were held to a "best practice" standard and if payments made for excess complications were eliminated. **********

36 The Repercussions of Software Piracy: Damages, Approaches of Control, and Benefits from Reducing Piracy Rates - Ekrem Arslan
Auteur : Ekrem Arslan

Copyright infringement of software vastly known as software piracy has become an economical menace. Particularly, the East Asian parts are the basic distributors of unlicensed software and denote the highest piracy rates world wide. The counterfeits have become high quality products that they can even compete with original software. Reasons, why software piracy exists and who the pirates are, are appraised in this report. The tremendous damages of high piracy rates on, for example, governmental loss of tax revenues, loss of jobs, are shown. Attention is paid, whether the Directive on the enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights (Directive 2004/48/EC) passed from the European Union, which has ingredients of different international treaties such as the WIPO, the TRIPS and the WTO, is able to stem software piracy. This leads to show why only the implementation of laws causes no objective

Reducing costs in a business or organisation depends on three things...

You need a structured approach, a methodology. You need to be using proven techniques to reduce costs. You need to firmly drive expenditure out of your business. You can learn to do all these in 'Reducing Business Costs in 8 Proven Steps'.

Why do we need to reduce business costs?

Businesses have it tough. Whether you're a small to medium sized enterprise or you're a large corporate body – business has never been more competitive. With this comes the natural pressure of trying to ensure profitability and, following on from that, increased pressure on costs.

With sales revenue often being very hard to increase, the only way to improve profitability is to drive down costs. Therefore, both in good times and in bad, reducing costs is an essential aspect of

41 Reducing Bodies - Elizabeth M. Matelski
Auteur : Elizabeth M. Matelski
Genre : États-Unis
Reducing Bodies: Mass Culture and the Female Figure in Postwar America explores the ways in which women in the years following World War II refashioned their bodies—through reducing diets, exercise, and plastic surgery—and asks what insights these changing beauty standards can offer into gender dynamics in postwar America. Drawing on novel and untapped sources, including insurance industry records, this engaging study considers questions of gender, health, and race and provides historical context for the emergence of fat studies and contemporary conversations of the "obesity epidemic."

42 China’s Role in Reducing Carbon Emissions - David Toke
Auteur : David Toke
Genre : Économie
China, a still developing economy comprising a fifth of the world’s population, will play a key role in the global movement towards reducing carbon emissions. The aims of the Paris Agreement may stand or fall with China, both for its own contribution and the example it will set the developing world.

China’s Role in Reducing Carbon Emissions discusses the prospects for China achieving radical reductions in carbon emissions, within the context of the current economic and political landscape. With a particular focus on technologies such as such as wind power, solar power and electric vehicles, Toke examines how China is transitioning to a state of stable energy consumption via a service-based economy and heavy investment in non-fossil energy sources. The book concludes that China may be set to reduce its carbon emissions by approximately two-thirds by 2050.

44 Relocating world Population for Reducing GHG Emission - Subhash Lele
Auteur : Subhash Lele
Genre : Ingénierie
The dominance of high energy consuming nations and the blame game seems to defeat the purpose of the Kyoto protocol in limiting global temperature increase to 2 degrees Celsius. In the Paris approach in 2015 voluntary targets from individual nations, indicate such commitments will unlock investments that ratchet up ambition on reducing emissions and eventually achieve the low-carbon world that all sides want. 

The studies show that the countries with highest emission are least vulnerable to climate change effects like rise in sea level, effects on flora and fauna etc. but the most vulnerable countries are African and small island countries which have little contribution to GHG (Green House Gases) emission.  It is ironical and unjust for these developing and underdeveloped countries.  
It is a common saying that when normal methods fail to yield results, a

45 Lean Office: Key to Reducing Costs and Improving Profitability - Ade Asefeso MCIPS MBA
Auteur : Ade Asefeso MCIPS MBA
Genre : Management et direction
Are you losing money due to wasted effort and low productivity of your knowledge workers? Is your office inefficiency leading to low worker morale and high workforce turnover? Are you losing customers or irritated due to disorganized office practices? Applying Lean principles to your office operations can solve these problems and create efficient knowledge workers that are a real competitive advantage. Given the success that Lean Manufacturing has shown in cleaning up production processes, why not achieve a Lean Enterprise by driving Lean Office practices into the front office where inefficient procedures, paperwork, and bureaucracy in one area can stall the leanest efforts of other operations. Lean is not about cutting staff and resources.

46 Reducing Poverty and Sustaining the Environment - David Satterthwaite, Hannah Reid & Stephen Bass
Auteur : David Satterthwaite, Hannah Reid & Stephen Bass
Genre : Économie
'A valuable contribution to our collective knowledge about governance, poverty and the environment' Frances Seymour, World Resources Institute 'Detailed and realistic documentation of contemporary development and governance relationships and trends' Melissa Leach, Institute of Development Studies There are growing signs that development work by governments, aid agencies and non-government organisations ignores the fact that environmental quality matters to the poor. There are also indications that some environmental work is pushing 'people-out' protection methodologies. Yet recently, an extensive range of project, programme and policy level activities has focused attention on the important links between poverty and the environment, and the benefit of entrenching these links in policy-making processes at all levels. The role that politics plays in all of this is of overriding importance

47 Challenges and Successes in Reducing Health Disparities - Jennifer A. Cohen
Auteur : Jennifer A. Cohen
Genre : Médecine
In early 2007, the Institute of Medicine convened the Roundtable on Health Disparities to increase the visibility of racial and ethnic health disparities as a national problem, to further the development of programs and strategies to reduce disparities, to foster the emergence of leadership on this issue, and to track promising activities and developments in health care that could lead to dramatically reducing or eliminating disparities. The Roundtable’s first workshop, Challenges and Successes in Reducing Health Disparities, was held in St. Louis, Missouri, on July 31, 2007, and examined (1) the importance of differences in life expectancy within the United States, (2) the reasons for those differences, and (3) the implications of this information for programs and policy makers.

49 Abatement Techniques for Reducing Emissions from Livestock Buildings - Mohamed Samer
Auteur : Mohamed Samer
Genre : Environnement
This book identifies future scientific research priorities for developing emissions inventories, emissions abatement techniques and mitigation strategies in order to improve and sustain livestock production that is in line with climate change adaptation. Livestock production is a major source of atmospheric pollutants and greenhouse gases, such as methane, nitrogen oxides, carbon dioxide and ammonia, all of which directly contribute to global warming and climate change. Air pollutant emissions from agricultural practices have a negative environmental impact and are of relevant political importance, as highlighted in both the Kyoto and Gothenburg Protocols.  This book provides solutions on how to abate these emissions by using effective abatement techniques such as additives, manure storage covers, aerobic and anaerobic treatments, and dietary manipulation.
