2017 | ISBN-10: 1138123862 | 542 pages | PDF | 23 MB

The ability to prioritise long-term goals above short-term gratifications is crucial to living a healthy and happy life. We are bombarded with temptations, whether from fast-food or faster technologies, but the psychological capacity to manage our lives within such a challenging environment has far-reaching implications for the well-being not only of the individual, but also society as a whole.
The Routledge International Handbook of Self-Control in Health and Wellbeing is the first comprehensive handbook to map this burgeoning area of research by applying it to health outcomes and personal well-being. Including contributions from leading scholars worldwide, the book incorporates new research findings that suggest that simply inhibiting our immediate impulses isn’t the whole story; there may be more options to improve self-control than simply by suppressing the ego.
Divided into six coherent sections, the book provides an overview of the research base before discussing a range of interventions to help improve self-control in different contexts, from smoking or drinking too much to developing self-control over aggression or spending money. The only definitive handbook on this far-reaching topic, this essential work will appeal to researchers and students across health and social psychology, as well as related health sciences.

Ebola : How a People’s Science Helped End an Epidemic

English | 2016 | ISBN: 1783608587 | 194 Pages | True PDF | 6.5 MB

From December 2013, the largest Ebola outbreak in history swept across West Africa, claiming thousands of lives in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. By the middle of 2014, the international community was gripped by hysteria. Experts grimly predicted that millions would be infected within months, and a huge international control effort was mounted to contain the virus. Yet paradoxically, by this point the disease was already going into decline in Africa itself. So why did outside observers get it so wrong?
Paul Richards draws on his extensive firsthand experience in Sierra Leone to argue that the international community’s alarmed response failed to take account of local expertise and common sense. Crucially, Richards shows that the humanitarian response to the disease was most effective in those areas where it supported community initiatives already in place, such as giving local people agency in terms of disposing of bodies. In turn, the international response dangerously hampered recovery when it ignored or disregarded local knowledge.
One of the first books to provide an in-depth analysis of the recent pandemic, Ebola offers a clear-eyed account of how and why the disease spread, and why the predictions of international commentators were so misguided. By learning from these mistakes and successes, we can better understand how to harness the power of local communities during future humanitarian health crises.

This second edition of the ACE Aerobics Instructor Manual began nearly 12 months ago with a comprehensive review of the skills and knowledge needed by group fitness instructors to perform their job with a basic level of competency. The outcome of this review, referred to as a role delineation, was used as the basis for developing the content of this manual. This new manual presents the most current, complete picture of the knowledge, instructional techniques and professional responsibilities group fitness instructors need to teach safe and effective exercise. It is designed to serve as a study aid for exam candidates preparing for the ACE certification exam and as a comprehensive fitness resource for new and veteran group fitness instructors.
It is important to note, however, that the scope of information presented in this manual will not exactly match the scope of information tested in the ACE certification exam. Exam candidates should refer to the Exam Content Outline in Appendix B for a detailed syllabus of information covered in the certification exam. In addition, ACE acknowledges various experience and skill levels among group fitness exam candidates. As such, we encourage candidates lacking the practical skills and experience related to teaching aerobics to take advantage of supervised training programs, such as the training programs accredited by ACE, to prepare for the ACE examinations.

The Franklin Cover-up: Child Abuse, Satanism, and Murder in Nebraska by John W. DeCamp

English | Aug. 16, 2011 | ISBN: 0963215809 | 451 Pages | PDF | 8 MB

The shut-down of Omaha, Nebraska’s Franklin Community Federal Credit Union, raided by federal agencies in November 1988, sent shock waves all the way to Washington, D.C. $40 million was missing. The credit union’s manager: Republican Party activist Lawrence E. “Larry” King, Jr., behind whose rise to fame and riches stood powerful figures in Nebraska politics and business, and in the nation’s capital.
In the face of opposition from local and state law enforcement, from the FBI, and from the powerful Omaha World-Herald newspaper, a special Franklin committee of the Nebraska Legislature launched its own probe. What looked like a financial swindle, soon exploded into a hideous tale of drugs, Iran-Contra money-laundering, a nationwide child abuse ring, and ritual murder.
Nineteen months later, the legislative committee’s chief investigator died – suddenly, and violently, like more than a dozen other people linked to the Franklin case.
Author John DeCamp knows the Franklin scandal from the inside. In 1990, his “DeCamp memo” first publicly named the alleged high-ranking abusers. Today, he is attorney for two of the abuse victims.
Using documentation never before made public, DeCamp lays bare not only the crimes, but the cover-up – a textbook case of how dangerous the corruption of institutions of government, and the press, can be. In its sweep and in what it portends for the nation, the Franklin cover-up followed the ugly precedent of the Warren Commission.
