Second Takes by Carolyn Jess-Cooke , Constantine Verevis

Second Takes: Critical Approaches to the Film Sequel by Carolyn Jess-Cooke , Constantine Verevis
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.9 MB
Overview: Sequels, serials, and remakes have been a staple of cinema since the very beginning, and recent years have seen the emergence of dynamic and progressive variations of these multi-film franchises. Taking a broad range of sequels as case studies, from the Godfather movies to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Second Takes confronts the complications posed by film sequels and their aftermaths, proposing new critical approaches to what has become a dominant industrial mode of Hollywood cinema. The contributors explore the sequel’s investments in repetition, difference, continuation, and retroactivity, and particularly those attitudes and approaches toward the sequel that hold it up as a kind of figurehead of Hollywood’s commercial imperatives. An invaluable resource to the film student, critic, and fan, Second Takes offers new ways of looking at the film sequel’s industrial, aesthetic, cultural, political, and theoretical contexts.

Science, Society, and the Supermarket: The Opportunities and Challenges of Nutrigenomics by David Castle, Cheryl Cline, Abdallah S. Daar, Charoula Tsamis, Peter A. Singer
Requirements: .PDF reader, 2.1 Mb
Overview: Gene-diet interactions–which underlie relatively benign lactose intolerance to life-threatening conditions such as cardiovascular disease–have long been known. But until now, scientists lacked the tools to fully understand the underlying mechanisms that cause these conditions. In recent years, however, strides in human genomics and the nutritional sciences have allowed for the advancement of a new science–dubbed nutrigenomics. Although this science may lead to personalized nutrition and dietary recommendations that can mitigate, prevent, or cure sickness, current oversight mechanisms and regulations for emerging direct-to-public nutrigenomic tests are still in their infancy.

One Second Ahead by Rasmus Hougaard

One Second Ahead: Enhance Your Performance at Work with Mindfulness by Rasmus Hougaard, Jacqueline Carter, Gillian Coutts
Requirements: .PDF reader, 3.7 MB
Overview: Researchers have found that the accelerated pace of modern office life is taking its toll on productivity, employee engagement, creativity and well-being. Faced with a relentless flood of information and distractions, our brains try to process everything at once increasing our stress, decreasing our effectiveness and negatively impacting our performance.

Ironically, we have become too overworked, unfocused, and busy to stop and ask ourselves the most important question: What can we do to break the cycle of being constantly under pressure, always-on, overloaded with information and in environments filled with distractions? Do we need to accept this as the new workplace reality and continue to survive rather than thrive in modern day work environments? Thankfully, the answer is no. In their new book, ONE SECOND AHEAD: Enhance Your Performance at Work with Mindfulness (Palgrave Macmillan; November 2015), Rasmus Hougaard, Jacqueline Carter, and Gillian Coutts demonstrate that it is possible to train the brain to respond differently to today’s constant pressures and distraction. All it takes is one second.

They propose that we need to learn to work differently so we are more focused, calm and have less clutter in our mind so we can better manage our time and attention. What if we could hit the ‘pause’ button on our day, step back, and meet challenges with a sense of clarity and purpose? And what if there was a way not just of ‘getting things done,’ but ensuring that what does get done are the right things to do?
