Attention: Beyond Mindfulness

Attention: Beyond Mindfulness

Jetzt kaufen

If there is one thing we are short on these days, it’s attention. Attention is central to everything we do and think, yet it is mostly an intangible force, an invisible thing that connects us as subjects with the world around us. We pay attention to this or that, let our attention wander—we even stand at attention from time to time—yet rarely do we attend to attention itself. In this book, Gay Watson does just that, musing on attention as one of our most human impulses.
           
As Watson shows, the way we think about attention is usually through its instrumentality, by what can be achieved if we give something enough of it—say, a crisply written report, a newly built bookcase, or even a satisfied child who has yearned for engagement. Yet in losing ourselves to the objects of our fixation, we often neglect the process of attention itself. Exploring everything from attention’s effects on our neurons to attention deficit disorder, from the mindfulness movement to the relationship between attention and creativity, Watson examines attention in action through many disciplines and ways of life. Along the way, she offers interviews with an astonishing cast of creative people—from composers to poets to artists to psychologists—including John Luther Adams, Stephen Batchelor, Sue Blackmore, Guy Claxton, Edmund de Waal, Rick Hanson, Jane Hirshfield, Wayne Macgregor, Iain McGilchrist, Garry Fabian Miller, Alice and Peter Oswald, Ruth Ozeki, and James Turrell.
           
A valuable and timely account of something central to our lives yet all too often neglected, this book will appeal to anyone who has felt their attention under threat in the clamors of modern life.

Breast Implant Type: Saline or Silicone – How Does a Patient Choose?


Breast implants have been available since 1963 when the first breast augmentation was performed in Houston. The first breast implants were made out of a silicone shell and filled with silicone oil. These remained on the market in a variety of forms until 1992 with the federal government imposed a moratorium on silicone implants pending medical evaluation. All studies evaluating long-term health effects found that the implants posed no threat to the health of the patient. However, the implants did leak and the silicone oil could migrate to areas outside of the breast.

Companies reformulated the implants with better shells and they changed the filling to a cohesive silicone gel. After extensive studies, these cohesive gel implants (sometimes called gummy-bear implants by some surgeons), received FDA approval. The filling of these implants differs significantly from the old oil filled implants. If the implant were sliced ​​in half, the filling looks like you have sliced ​​a piece of Jell-O in half. The filling does not ooze out and migrate.

Saline breast implants have been on the market since 1968. The implant has a very similar shell to the silicone implant, and, it has a filling valve that the surgeon uses during the procedure to fill it. Saline is a salt-water solution that has the same electrolyte osmolality of plasma. It is commonly used as an intravenous solution.

Each implant has advantages and disadvantages. First lets consider breakage. All implants, just like all mechanical devices known to man, will break. It is generally stated that saline implants have an average life span of ten-fifteen years. This means that some implants will last shorter than 10 years, some much longer than 10 years, and many will need to be replaced somewhere in that 10-15 year range. When a saline implant breaks, either the valve malfunctions, or the shell tears, and the saline leaks out. The patient will not feel a pop or anything, however, the body unfortunately absorbs the saline and the breast deflates. Silicone implants also break. The latest studies show a breakage rate of 8% at 10 years. Because the new cohesive gel silicone does not migrate like the old oil implants, a patient may not be aware that the shell has torn. Therefore, it is recommended that a patient have an MRI intermittently to check for implant rupture.

Patients are commonly under the impression that they need to change their implants every ten years. This is not true. If the implant is not broken, and the patient is happy with her breasts, there is no need to change the implant.

Now lets consider the most important aspect differentiating saline and silicone implants: performance. Implant performance is determined by look and feel. Some aspects of the implants may be noticeable. Specifically, the implants may have visible ripples. These become more prominent in patients with less breast tissue and in patients with less body fat. Silicone implants tend to have significantly less visible rippling than saline implants. Implants also come in several different profiles, meaning how much they project for a given base diameter. Different profiles produce different looks ranged from very natural to very round. Saline implants allow the surgeon to tailor the look slowly more than silicone implants because the surgeon can overfill the implant to a certain extent. This may be useful for a patient looking for a very round look.

Finally, the patient should consider feel. Silicone implants tend to feel much more natural than saline implants. Yet some patients actually want a firmer feel to their breasts so the advantage really lies in a patient's desire.

Choosing the implant type is important prior to having your augmentation. Know what you are choosing and why.

ERP Brazil: SAP Business One Implementation for Multinational Corporation


SAP B1 has over 200 installations in Brazil at this time and the number of new customers is growing. In this article we would like to recommend SAP BO as ERP system for multinational corporation with subsidiary in Brazil. There are certain strong points about SAP B1 and certain areas for future improvement, but you as a manager should understand these pluses and minuses to make a selection decision
Pluses:

o Internationalization. It includes multicurrency, multiple languages ​​support, availability across Latin America, in USA, Europe, Asia, etc. If your company is present on all or the majority of these markets, you can consider spoke (SAP BO in local country) – and – Hub (MySAP in Headquarters) model, which is reasonably easy controllable from your Headquarters, plus it avoids one- vendor-dependence syndrome in overseas location

o Localization. In large countries, such as Brazil federal, state and municipal regulation typically differs from American, European standards and needs to be specifically addressed – this added functionality is typically referred to as localization. SAP B1 is officially "localized" for Brazil

o SAP Brand. Again – this is when you prefer to stick to brand name MRP provider, and it should be respected. At the same time, when you stick to such provider as SAP, Oracle or Microsoft Dynamics – you probably expect better quality, support and longevity for your ERP

Area for future improvement:

o Localization. If you think about ERP history in Brazil – you should probably accept the fact that if such locally designed ERP as Microsiga begon to address Brazilian requirements from the first day of going to the MRP market, then "localization" from Microsiga is a bit more advanced, it is addressing Brazilian Payroll, for example, and other features

o State and Municipal legislation. To implement all these taxation, reporting functionality is a matter of time, so you should be patient and respect SAP efforts to localize these requirements one-by-one as time permits. Meanwhile you should prepare required filing documents in Excel, based on SAP B1 reporting which is the base for your analysis and calculations

If you need help, please give us a call US / Canada: 1-866-528-0577, Worldwide: 1-630-961-5918, Brazil: + 55-11-3571 4992, help@albaspectrum.com

How to Develop Sexy Six Pack Abs


If you've ever wanted to have a set of six pack abs, then this will be the most important article you'll ever read.

Developing your abdominal muscles takes work and determination but the funny thing is, once you've got them, they're pretty much there to stay.

The trick to getting started is to be committed for 90 days. Once you've gone past the first three months the rest is a breeze!

Plus, once you have developed and toned those muscles once, you hardly have to do any work at all to keep them.

As far as what exercises you need to do, you'll want to pick 7 highly effective exercises (like the ab bicycle and the reverse crunch.) Perform between 10 and 25 repetitions for each set or exercises. Repeat those 7 exercises three times for a total of 21 sets in all.

Once you've done that workout, wait at least a full day before doing it again. You need to give your abdominal muscles some time to rest and repair themselves to develop and grow.

Now surprisingly enough, you can fully work your abs in about 15 minutes a day. So developing a great set of abs does not really have to be all that time consuming.

The real secret to developing a stunning set of six pack abs is not only about abdominal exercises, it has much more to do with what you do outside of your abdominal exercise routine.

This may not be surprising to you, but you need to reduce your body fat percentage if you want to see those ripples. But do not worry, burning fat can be extremely simple if you take the right steps.

The other part of the formula is to take up cardiovascular exercises (like riding a bike, swimming, jogging or even skipping rope) for about half an hour at a time to increase your metabolism and to process food faster in your body. Once you can digest your food quicker, it's easier for your body to begin using stored fat as energy.

The other thing that's also extremely important is what you put into your body to fuel it. Having healthy eating habits that fuel your body with the right type of nutrients will make a huge difference in your fat burning efforts.

I highly recommend seeing a nutritionist or a dietitian for their recommendations.

Once you've got the fat out of the way and have effectively learned how to keep it off, your abs will show through and you'll have that washboard look in no time.

Unfortunately, doing abdominal exercises alone does not help much to burn fat, but combining an ab workout with a cardio routine and a healthy eating plan will definitely lead to a strong sexy set of six pack abs that will make anyone drool.

5 Advantages Of Using Linux Over Windows


So, you're a new, or fairly moderate Linux user, who wants to know what the true advantages of Linux over Windows are? There are several advantages of Linux, and of course, some disadvantages to using the Linux operating system. This article covers 5 advantages of using Linux over Windows, and lists a few disadvantages as well.

Advantages of Linux:

  • Cost – The most obvious advantage of using Linux is the fact that it is free to obtain, while Microsoft products are available for a hefty and sometimes recurring fee. Microsoft licenses are typically only allowed to be installed on a single computer, whereas a Linux distribution can be installed on any number of computers, without paying a single dime.
  • Security – In line with the costs, the security aspect of Linux is much stronger than that of Windows. Why should you have to spend extra money for virus protection software? The Linux operating system has been around since the early nineties and has managed to stay secure in the realm of widespread viruses, spyware and adware for all these years. Sure, the argument of the Linux desktop not being as widely used is a factor as to why there are no viruses. My rebuttal is that the Linux operating system is open source and if there were a widespread Linux virus released today, there would be hundreds of patches released tomorrow, either by ordinary people that use the operating system or by the distribution maintainers. We would not need to wait for a patch from a single company like we do with Windows.
  • Choice (Freedom) – The power of choice is a great Linux advantage. With Linux, you have the power to control just about every aspect of the operating system. Two major features you have control of are your desks look and feel by way of numerous Window Managers, and the kernel. In Windows, your either stuck using the boring default desktop theme, or risking corruption or failure by installing a third-party shell.
  • Software – There are so many software choices when it comes to doing any specific task. You could search for a text editor on Freshmeat and yield hundreds, if not thousands of results. My article on 5 Linux text editors you should know about explains how there are so many options just for editing text on the command-line due to the open source nature of Linux. Regular users and programmers contribute applications all the time. Sometimes its a simple modification or feature enhancement of a already existing piece of software, sometimes its a brand new application. In addition, software on Linux tends to be packed with more features and greater usability than software on Windows. Best of all, the vast majority of Linux software is free and open source. Not only are you getting the software for no charge, but you have the option to modify the source code and add more features if you understand the programming language. What more could you ask for?
  • Hardware – Linux is perfect for those old computers with barely any processing power or memory you have sitting in your garage or basement collecting dust. Install Linux and use it as a firewall, a file server, or a backup server. There are endless possibilities. Old 386 or 486 computers with barely any RAM run Linux without any issue. Good luck running Windows on these machines and actually finding a use for them.

Disadvantages of Linux:

  • Understanding – Becoming familiar with the Linux operating system requires patience as well as a strong learning curve. You must have the desire to read and figure things out on your own, rather than having everything done for you.
  • Compatibility – Because of its free nature, Linux is sometimes behind the curve when it comes to brand new hardware compatibility. Although the kernel contributors and maintainers work hard at keeping the kernel up to date, Linux does not have as much of a corporate backing as alternative operating systems. Sometimes you can find third party applications, sometimes you can not.
  • Alternative Programs – Although Linux developers have done a great job at creating alternatives to popular Windows applications, there are still some applications that exist on Windows that have no equivalent Linux application.

Now that you have an understanding of some of the advantages of Linux, its time get out there and experiment. Windows can be a great tool for the lazy and incompetent, but it takes a true scholar and one who wants to learn to run a robust operating system like Linux.
