Publilius Syrus was a Syrian slave, a mime, and a writer of Latin maxims. Brought as a slave to Italy in the 1st century BC, he won his freedom by his wit and talent. His 1087 sayings presented here include: 1. As men, we are all equal in the presence of death. 2. The evil you do to others you may expect in return. 3. Allay the anger of your friend by kindness. 4. To dispute with a drunkard is to debate with an empty house. 5. Receive an injury rather than do one. 6. A trifling rumor may cause a great calamity. 7. To do two things at once is to do neither. 8. A hasty judgment is a first step to a recantation. 9. Suspicion cleaves to the dark side of things. 10. To love one’s wife with too much passion, is to be an adulterer. 11. Hard is it to correct the habit already formed. 12. A small loan makes a debtor; a great one, an enemy. 13. Age conceals the lascivious character; age also reveals it. 14. Bitter for a free man is the bondage of debt. 15. Even when we get what we wish, it is not ours. 16. We are interested in others, when they are interested in us. 17. Every one excels in something in which another fails. 18. Do not find your happiness in another’s sorrow. 19. An angry lover tells himself many lies. 20. A lover, like a torch, burns the more fiercely the more agitated.

What does the word “Trust” mean? How does the clustering of perceptions that surround a word everyone uses differently affect what we do in our personal, commercial and entrepreneurial lives? Scholars and practitioners widely acknowledge trust's importance: • Trust makes cooperative endeavors happen • Trust is a key to positive interpersonal relationships • Trust becomes even more central and critical during periods of uncertainty due to organizational crisis • Trust is a central component in effective working relationships Because trust is considered so vital, it has been studied extensively and we now have the data necessary to see how it works. How it can be created. How it is propagated across social networks. How it can be lost when things go dreadfully wrong and then how it can be regained. If you work on the web. If you run any kind of business. If you’re a business leader. If you’re putting together any kind of tribe. If you’re interested in how to make your working relationships work more smoothly and your business function more effectively, this book will help. David Amerland begins this book with an allegorical tale from which practical lessons are drawn and then dives deep into what makes trust happen and how we can use it to improve our business, professional and private lives.

Generalized Linear Models With Examples in R

Author: Peter K. Dunn,Gordon K. Smyth

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 1441901183

Category: Mathematics

Page: 562

This textbook presents an introduction to multiple linear regression, providing real-world data sets and practice problems. A practical working knowledge of applied statistical practice is developed through the use of these data sets and numerous case studies. The authors include a set of practice problems both at the end of each chapter and at the end of the book. Each example in the text is cross-referenced with the relevant data set, so that readers can load the data and follow the analysis in their own R sessions. The balance between theory and practice is evident in the list of problems, which vary in difficulty and purpose. This book is designed with teaching and learning in mind, featuring chapter introductions and summaries, exercises, short answers, and simple, clear examples. Focusing on the connections between generalized linear models (GLMs) and linear regression, the book also references advanced topics and tools that have not typically been included in introductions to GLMs to date, such as Tweedie family distributions with power variance functions, saddlepoint approximations, likelihood score tests, modified profile likelihood, and randomized quantile residuals. In addition, the authors introduce the new R code package, GLMsData, created specifically for this book. Generalized Linear Models with Examples in R balances theory with practice, making it ideal for both introductory and graduate-level students who have a basic knowledge of matrix algebra, calculus, and statistics.

Falling Awake

Author: Todd L. Blattner

Publisher: FriesenPress

ISBN: 1460209885

Category: Self-Help

Page: 378

Waking is a natural shift from unconsciousness to awareness. Falling awake is a special case of waking where we relax out of old patterns, ease out of resistance, and surrender to the grace and love that are always present beneath the surface of appearances. Although falling awake, like falling asleep, cannot be forced, it can be prepared for. Integrating perspectives from physical, social and psychological sciences, philosophy, religion and energy awareness, and calling on many years of experience as a teacher, counsellor and Buddhist monk, Blattner takes us step by step into an expanded understanding of the universe in which we live, the mind/body system that we call "self," and that which may lie beyond. With gentleness and kindness, Falling Awake shows us how to move beyond the programs and limiting belief systems that support the problems in our lives, and awaken into an increasingly gentle, joyful, and expanded experience of the art of living.
