Human Augmentation

by Zhou Lu

It has been a long history for mankind to attempt to go beyond one’s limitations with external measures ever since the bible stories. Once Darwin’s theory of evolution was published, people learnt that evolution of mankind was continuously in progress. It has also been recognized that as long as a human body is made of substances and follows the invariable physical laws, it is theoretically possible to manipulate the characteristics and capacities of human bodies via technological means. Human Augmentation, also known as human enhancement, sometimes referring to “Human 2.0”, is using technologies to select or alter human characteristics and capacities in order to temporarily or permanently overcome the limitations of human bodies.

Focus: How To Eliminate Distraction And Stay Driven Towards Your Goals (Motivation Productivity Organize Time Manage Wealth Goals Setting Hard Work Life Love Money Freedom Finance Travel Plans Happy)

by Meiso

Onе оf thе most imÑ?оrtаnt tips for finding success iÑ? tо hаvе a Ñ?trоng bеliеf in whаt Ñ?оu are trÑ?ing tо асhiеvе. MоÑ?t Ñ?еоÑ?lе whо hаvе achieved success аrе goal oriented, thеÑ? аrе focused on what they need to do everyday and EXECUTE. They cannot do thiÑ? unlеÑ?Ñ? thеÑ? bеliеvе in what they’re trying to achieve. Yоu hаvе tо hаvе the same mindset and commitment if you wаnt tо еliminаtе distractions.

Whеnеvеr Ñ?оu lооk аt whеrе Ñ?оu are nоw and whеrе Ñ?оu wаnt tо bе, dо you identify with the successful person? First, imagine or find in real life someone who is driven and 100% focused. Figure out whom you want to be (focused, consistent, driven, etc…), and work your butt off towards becoming that person. Think to yourself, “what would this person do?”, would this person press the snooze button? Would this person take this long of a break? Would this person give up? Would this person procrastinate? Once you’ve figured out what you want to become, work towards it.

The first thing you need to do in order to have hyper-focus is to be ORGANIZED. If you have a dirty room or do not plan your day on a daily basis, YOU WILL BE MORE LIKELY TO FAIL. Every morning, have a routine and set your goals. Figure out EXACTLY what you’re going to do down to the minute. This way it’s going to be easier to go on auto-pilot and focus on things that YOU actually need to work on. It’s easier to do something when you’re on a schedule. This way it’s easier to say, “No” if family or friends call or ask you to grab lunch and coffee with them. It makes it easier for you to SAVE time.

Another tip you can do is to break down your tasks into a series of SMALL decisions. Instead of I need to go to the gym. You can make the decision to just grab your shorts, then make the decision to walk to your car, then drive to the gym, etc… That’s a much easier task than going to the gym and working out for one hour. Break down your tasks into SMALL chunks and you will get a nice momentum once you accomplish smaller tasks.

It’s also important to work on your most important task FIRST. You have a finite amount of attention on a daily basis, so it’s important to finish the toughest most effective task first. Things are flexible and problems may appear during the day so if anything arises at least you’ve completed your most important task for the day.

Be Ñ?rеÑ?аrеd for the diÑ?trасtiоnÑ? Ñ?оu will have tо dеаl with and devise Ñ?trаtеgiеÑ? to dеаl with thеm. If thеrе аrе Ñ?еоÑ?lе in your lifе whо will bе аffесtеd bÑ? thе changes Ñ?оu hаvе tо mаkе, you need tо talk to thеm. ExÑ?lаin tо them whаt Ñ?оu аrе trying tо achieve. Instead of a spontaneous hangout, schedule the times Ñ?оu will bе аblе to spend time tоgеthеr. ThiÑ? will eliminate wasting time and allow you to have down time to have fun with friends and family. If Ñ?оur gоаlÑ? are work related it will help Ñ?оu gеt thе proper work/life bаlаnсе.

Other distractions will bе thе jealousy or еnvÑ? of оthеrÑ? whо trÑ? to put Ñ?оu dоwn оr dеlibеrаtеlÑ? put bаrriеrÑ? in your path. Yоu саn deal with thiÑ? nеgаtivitÑ? by Ñ?tаÑ?ing Ñ?оÑ?itivе аnd focused. Rеmеmbеr, Ñ?оu are thе only one whо really саrеÑ? аbоut your own goals. Find wаÑ?Ñ? to Ñ?tаÑ? focused and dеtеrminеd. Yоur mind iÑ? Ñ?оur strongest ally, but it саn also bе your grеаtеÑ?t еnеmÑ?. ViÑ?uаlizе achieving аnd еnjоÑ?ing Ñ?оur gоаlÑ?. Visualization is a powerful mеаnÑ? of mоtivаtiоn.

Marc’s Weight Loss Miracle: How I Lost 68 Pounds of Fat without Drugs, Surgery or Voodoo Science

Marc’s Weight Loss Miracle

How I Lost 68 Pounds of Fat without Drugs, Surgery or Voodoo Science

By Marc Charles

Introduction

Dear Friend:

I lost more than 68 pounds of useless fat in about 200 days without drugs, surgery or voodoo science.

What’s more, I didn’t use hormone replacement, hypnotism or walk on hot coals.

I didn’t join anything, perform deadly stress tests or repeat positive affirmations before I went to sleep.

And that’s not all; I started my protocol shortly before the holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day!

The best part is failure and discouragement is built into my approach, and that’s what makes it so powerful, so failure should NOT be an issue for you.

I’ll explain exactly what I did with less than 1,000 words. You don’t have to buy any CDs, DVDs, seminars, newsletters, memberships, frozen food or anything else!

It’s important to note weight loss is not my passion.

I’m not a doctor, medical professional, voodoo scientist, chemist, natural cures guru, naturopathic physician or life coach (whatever the hell that is!).

I got to a point where I understood what makes my body tick. I give some very savvy people credit in the resources section of this e-book, they helped me grow in wisdom and understanding.

However, the bottom line is I discovered an approach and protocol which worked like a miracle for me.

There’s a good chance it can work for you too.

It’s worked for a lot of other people too.

This e-book includes the most powerful, up-to-date and accurate information about losing weight and improving wellness you will find.

Medicamentos no Brasil: inovação e acesso (Portuguese Edition)

by Paulo Marchiori Buss

Uma das particularidades da área da saúde é pertencer tanto à esfera social quanto à industrial, característica que representa oportunidades e grandes desafios. O livro Medicamentos no Brasil: inovação e acesso tem o objetivo de fomentar o desenvolvimento tecnológico e fortalecer a produção nacional, além de garantir que o conhecimento desses avanços beneficie a população brasileira. Como afirma o ministro da Saúde, José Gomes Temporão, no prefácio: “…inovação não pode estar desligada da idéia de acesso”. Reunindo os pontos de vista da academia, governo e setor produtivo público e privado, com abordagens que privilegiam o contexto nacional e refletem sobre a posição brasileira no cenário internacional, a obra apresenta um diagnóstico da área de medicamentos no país, avalia seus problemas e potencialidades e faz recomendações concretas para superação dos obstáculos e aproveitamento das oportunidades. Cabe destacar que é o segundo volume de uma série sobre pesquisa, desenvolvimento e inovação nos segmentos industriais da saúde, do Projeto Inovação em Saúde (presidência/Fiocruz), cujo primeiro livro é Vacinas, Soros e Imunizações no Brasil.
