Description : 365 affirmations and reflections drawn from the inspirational work of Louise Hay. Queen of the New Age . . . A founder of the self-help movement . . . The closest thing to a living saint . . . Louise Hay was called all this and more, and her work inspired millions worldwide, but she never set herself up as a guru with all the answers. She urged every attendee at her workshops and conferences, every reader of her dozens of books, to remember that it is you who has the power to heal your life. She was just here to guide you on the path of remembering the truth of who you are: powerful, loving, and lovable. In honor of Louise's life, you now hold in your hands this compilation of her most inspiring teachings from her greatest works. Our hope is that the 366 entries within this book allow you to carry the wisdom of Louise with you each and every day, and inspire you to trust the process of Life. As Louise said: "Very simply, I believe that what we give out, we get back; we all contribute to, and are responsible for, the events that take place in our lives--both the good and the so-called bad. We create our experiences based on the words we say and the thoughts we think. When we create peace and harmony in our minds and think positive thoughts, we will attract positive experiences and like-minded people to us. In essence, what I'm saying is that what we believe about ourselves and about Life becomes true for us."
Description : This book samples recent and emerging trust research in education including an array of conceptual approaches, measurement innovations, and explored determinants and outcomes of trust. The collection of pathways explores the phenomenon of trust and establishes the significance of trust relationships in school life.

These include the simultaneous investigation of trust from the prospectives of various trusters, and at both the individual and group levels, longitudinal research designs, and an elaboration of methods.
Description : This book investigates the role of incomplete knowledge, social trust and risk perceptions in influencing acceptance of the perceived risks related to insurers using genetic test results. In addition, the author identifies and explains the factors and conditions that affect this risk acceptance pattern. In order to do so, both survey methods and semi-structured interviews are employed. A review of the ‘necessity’ of life insurance companies to acquire genetic test results is undertaken, followed by an analysis of the speculated consequences of such usage for society. Management of the risks related to insurers using genetic test results is examined and the problems and difficulties inherent in the risk management strategies, suggested and enforced, are explored. This is followed by a comparison between the societal risks produced by insurers using genetic test results and the risks theorised as pertaining to a ‘risk society’ (Beck, 1992) and a ‘runaway world’ (Giddens, 1990, 1999).

Description : In business, politics, marriage, indeed in any significant relationship, trust is the essential precondition upon which all real success depends. But what, precisely, is trust? How can it be achieved and sustained? And, most importantly, how can it be regained once it has been broken? In Building Trust, Robert C. Solomon and Fernando Flores offer compelling answers to these questions. They argue that trust is not something that simply exists from the beginning, something we can assume or take for granted; that it is not a static quality or "social glue." Instead, they assert that trust is an emotional skill, an active and dynamic part of our lives that we build and sustain with our promises and commitments, our emotions and integrity. In looking closely at the effects of mistrust, such as insidious office politics that can sabotage a company's efficiency, Solomon and Flores demonstrate how to move from na?ve trust that is easily shattered to an authentic trust that is sophisticated, reflective, and possible to renew. As the global economy makes us more and more reliant on "strangers," and as our political and personal interactions become more complex, Building Trust offers invaluable insight into a vital aspect of human relationships.
