This Motivational Training Video is 25 minutes long video which act as a motivational training for students, professionals, employees, housewives, businessmen etc. To create difference in life of people in India, I decided to give this Motivational training in hindi. I will keep posting more such motivational seminars in Hindi to help you in achieving goals and happiness. In this motivational training video, I have discussed about a concept which I heard years back. When I heard for the first time about such a motivational concept, I did not believe it. I wondered how can one change his life with power of thoughts. Since I am a motivational speaker and trainer, so I decided to research on this concept, I went on to read various authors like Jack Canfield, Rhonda Byrne, Brian Tracy etc. I watched various motivational training videos and read many articles. I listened to various motivational speakers like Shiv Khera, Sandeep Maheshwari, Santosh Nair, TS Madaan etc. So after my intensive research, I concluded, that what we achieve our goals and success according to our wishes and desires. I was invited by many schools, colleges and organizations to give motivational training seminars. So, in this video, I have discussed 5 things: In the beginning of this motivational seminar in hindi, I have discussed What is Law of Attraction in Hindi. I have described the law in simple words so that a layman can understand. Then I have moved further and discussed it's scientific relevance, I have given some scientific reasons for it's existence. Going further in this motivational training speech in hindi, I have given my personal experiences, my own motivational success stories about my seminar in mumbai and launch of my motivational book - Be Awesome, Live Awesome. I am soon coming up with motivational audio book in Hindi, will post them surely. Further in this video, I have discussed about how you can use this law of attraction. I have given a 5 step action plan to implement law of attraction and attract success in your life. 5 Steps: 1.) Set Clear Goals 2.) Write your Goals 3.) Visualize Success 4.) Take Action 5.) Attitude of Gratitude In the last point of this motivational indian video, I have given some tips on what not to do. In my all training seminars in Hindi or any other Language, you will notice that I always give Dos and Donts. As I try to produce each movie as my best motivational training video, there are surely various leanings for me as well. We generally become demotivated as we expect quick results, we do not have patience in waiting. Initially, you will have to be patient and remain positive in thinking. If you feel fall prey to negative thinking, you will send negative waves to Universe. I promise, I will keep posting best motivational seminars to help you in success and happiness. To study further, you can go through motivational documentary films in Hindi and try to learn from them. There are many motivational films in Hindi which can boost your self confidence.

This workshop will address faculty concerns regarding syllabus design from two distinct but complementary research-based perspectives. Many faculty would like to increase the rigor of their courses, but fear doing so would necessarily harm their teaching evaluations. In this workshop, Dr. Tom Tripp will present new, published evidence that debunks this relationship and shows how certain aspects of the course and syllabus design actually can simultaneously increase both rigor and teaching evaluations by improving students’ perception that the course is run fairly. Faculty attention to student perception is particularly important when teaching students who are first in their family to attend college and who are actively working to understand and respond to university expectations. Dr. Anna Plemons will share research that suggests that syllabus design can positively affect student perceptions of faculty without increasing faculty workload. We will share best practices for syllabus design based on these two lines of research and provide real-time support for participants as they apply those best practices to their own disciplinary context.

Moral judgments involve the understanding of fairness, justice, and equality. How do these judgments emerge in development? While new research has revealed the origins of morality, few studies have examined the role of intergroup relationships for formulating notions about fairness. Increasingly, there has been new evidence that the ability to apply morality to the outgroup exists in early development, but it appears to be complex. The challenges associated with applying moral judgments to members of outgroups include understanding group dynamics, the intentions of others who are different from the self, and having the capacity to challenge stereotypic expectations of others who are different from the ingroup. In this talk, I will discuss current findings, guided by theories from ethics as well as developmental and social psychology. Research with children provides a window into the complexities of moral judgment and raises new questions which are ripe for investigations into the emergence of morality and its developmental trajectory. Melanie Killen, Ph.D. is Professor of Human Development and Quantitative Methodology, Professor of Psychology (Affiliate), and the Associate Director for the Center for Children, Relationships, and Culture at the University of Maryland. She is the author of Children and Social Exclusion: Morality, Prejudice and Group Identity (2011), co-editor of Social Development in Childhood and Adolescence: A Contemporary Reader (2011), and serves as the Editor of the Handbook on Moral Development (2006, 2014). Dr. Killen is the Director of the NICHD/NIH Graduate Training Program in Social Development (2003- present), and has received funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) for her research on social exclusion, moral reasoning, and intergroup attitudes. Her research has been profiled at the "NSF Highlights on Research" by the Office of Legislative and Public Affairs. She was invited to present her research at the Coalition for National Science Funding in Washington, D.C., with senators and congressional staff on social science research funded projects. In addition to her published empirical journal articles and book chapters, her book on morality in everyday life won the outstanding book award from the American Educational Research Association. Dr. Killen serves as Associate Editor for the journal Child Development, and is the former Chair of the Equity and Justice Committee for the Governing Council of the Society for Research in Child Development. Commissioned by Anderson Cooper, Dr. Killen conducted a study on children's racial bias for a set of stories aired on CNN AC360, "Kids on Race: The Hidden Picture" in April, 2012. Dr. Killen's research areas of expertise include children's and adolescents' social and moral development, peer relationships, social exclusion, prejudice and bias, morality and theory of mind, children and the media, and the role of school environments on development.

Link: http://youtu.be/Gor1H1T_JYU Slides #1: Introduction to Demystifying Tourism - Hi, my name is Dr. Stan McGahey. Welcome to my series of videos. They will attempt to “Demystify Tourism” as I explain many of the basic concepts of the tourism industry in short, 3-5 minute videos. Some of the topics are listed on the next couple of slides. The content of these videos is based on my experiences as a professor, consultant, writer, manager, and tourist in over 80 countries on 6 continents. Slide #2: Demystifying Tourism Videos (1) - Topics of the first few videos are the Tourism Model, Golden Rule of Tourism, Tourism Stakeholders Triangle, Four Operational Sectors of Tourism, Transportation, Attractions, Accommodations, Food & Beverage, Three Impacts of Tourism, Three Types of Tourists, Tourism Destinations, and Three Tourism Carrying Capacities. Slide #3: Demystifying Tourism Videos (2) - Topics of additional videos are Tourism Values, Philosophy, and Vision; Tourism Organizations & Associations; Special Interest Tourism; Evaluating Inbound Tourism Numbers; Tourism Policy; Tourism Planning; Tourism Development; Tourism Promotion; Tourism Distribution; Careers in Tourism; and many, many more! Slide #4: Purpose of Videos - Why the need to demystify tourism? Because it’s the world’s largest industry, and it grows everywhere, whether it’s well planned and managed, or not. Tourism’s components are simple, but as a system, it’s quite complex. Often, people in decision-making positions, and people who are impacted by those decisions, know little about the tourism industry. But they should! Slide #5: Orientation of Videos - These videos are designed to help anyone who is curious about how the tourism industry works grasp its basic concepts quicker and easier, so they are industry-oriented, rather than consumer-oriented. But I think they will also help individual travelers gain valuable insights into the industry they use. Of course, I hope they will also be helpful to tourism educators, trainers, and students. Slide #6: Thank You! - During my long and interesting career, I’ve learned a few things about the tourism industry, and this is my opportunity to share them with you. So, I hope you will find these videos both enjoyable and useful, as they attempt to demystify tourism. Now I invite you to watch Video #2: The Tourism Model. I await your comments. Thank you! My Professional Background and Goals My doctor’s degree is in International Tourism from Hanyang University in Seoul, Korea, and I have developed and taught many courses in international tourism, both in the classroom and online, for more than 25 years at universities in Asia, the Pacific, Eastern and Western Europe, and the United States. I have also written several books on various aspects of the tourism industry; plus hundreds of articles for tourism trade publications and academic conferences and journals, and I have created and co-hosted two radio programs on the tourism industry. My professional experiences within the tourism industry range from tour operations and destination management to hotel promotions and tourism journalism. I have also served as an international tourism consultant on projects for U.N. organizations, government agencies, NGOs, and tourism businesses and associations in places such as Korea, China, Guam, Macedonia, Indonesia, Iraq, and the United States. Since 2004, I’ve served as a member of the UNWTO Panel of Tourism Experts. I have worked in tourism my entire adult life, except for military duty, because I love traveling abroad and experiencing different cultures and places, and when I’m not traveling, I want to help others see the world. I also believe that along with the joy of traveling comes the responsibility of being good travelers; those who not only get the most out of their travels, but also leave the most positive impacts on the people and places they visit. From these experiences, I’ve developed my own professional philosophy and goals. Trying to boil down your professional goals into one compact, logical sentence isn’t easy. But here’s mine. I would like to: “contribute to the strengthening of communities and nations through the development, management, operation, and promotion of responsible tourism for the purpose of enhancing economic well-being, environmental sustainability, cultural enrichment, social harmony, and international peace.” I take my work in tourism seriously, because it has enormous power to make the world a better place, or a worse place, in which to live. As such, I divide everyone in the world into two groups: there’s tourism people and there’s everybody else. Tourism people get it and do the right thing. I hope this series of videos, and the Tourism Model that goes with it, helps you not only demystify tourism, but also helps you become a tourism person.

New research methods can offer novel opportunities for gaining market insights, understanding consumer behavior, and generating social policy recommendations, but they can also take the research analyst on an unexpected detour. While the adoption of traditional methods can help the analyst steer the course, other vistas might be missed. How, and when, is the researcher to choose between these approaches, or to incorporate both in the research design? What factors should influence the drawing of the research methodology map? We welcome you to explore these topics through student and industry presentations, at the 3rd Annual Humber RAPP Research Forum

Marketing to car parts and service shoppers is a challenge. They are quick to make decisions with a majority deciding within a week. They actively compare multiple brands with most researching two or more brands. And they prioritize convenience and immediacy. Moreover, dealer service shops compete not only with other dealers, but also local and national service shops. So when it comes to getting a shopper's online attention for Fixed Ops, car dealers certainly have an uphill battle. In this 1 hour webinar, we will review major behavior trends among fixed ops shoppers to understand how these customers make decisions and where they perform much of their research. Based on these findings, we will discuss how your dealership can develop an effective marketing strategy to generate more service appointments and parts orders online. PRESENTER: Marianna Kerppola is an Industry Strategist on Google's Dealer Jumpstart Team, which helps car dealers embrace digital solutions. Our team collaborates with auto groups, individual dealers, and OEM's to generate business with Google tools in an age where smartphones rule and 'everything' is on YouTube. Marianna has worked at Google's Ann Arbor, Michigan office since 2011, all the while working directly with dealers on their digital marketing strategies. Prior to Google, she worked in corporate finance and investments for Nationwide Insurance.

OR ARE WE EMERGENCY RESPONDERS? TRANSFORMING SCHOLARSHIP INTO HUMANITARIAN PRACTICE IN THE EBOLA EPIDEMIC Running from ambulances. Hiding the sick. Washing the dead. After several months of medical intervention into the Ebola crisis in West Africa, reports of supposedly irrational, dangerous behavior emerged from affected countries, along with the sobering statistics that the epidemic was intensifying, rather than abating. Neighboring countries closed their borders, the WHO dragged its feet, and yet medical workers on the ground blamed the disease's spread on local ignorance; that residents of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone were too steeped in “backwards cultural practices”, in the words of Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, to engage in productive public health measures. The crisis spurred the anthropology community to mount an unprecedented response impressing the importance of familiarization with local cultural and social factors, rather than branding them impossibly strange, in the humanitarian response. Addressing such factors as the lack of appropriate health communication, militarized quarantine practices, and callous burial protocols, anthropologists in the US and Europe demanded that the epidemic be addressed as a crisis of social knowledge, rather than as an emerging war between expertise and care, on the one hand, and ignorance and selfishness, on the other. Rendering familiar the "strange" responses of affected communities to the international community required the communication of anthropological knowledge in policy- and practically-oriented ways with which most anthropologists have no familiarity, and required new ways of producing and translating knowledge. This panel draws together papers addressing questions about how and why particular bodies of humanitarian knowledge are formed and deployed, and how practices that directly counter human sociality without dialogue or thoughtful alternatives exacerbate, rather than ameliorate, the spread of infectious diseases like Ebola. The papers address such topics as: 1) the formation of the AAA Ebola Emergency Response, and the struggle to translate the social to medical actors; 2) the role of the objectified, exoticized, and dehumanized black body in motivating international response; 3) the complicating factors of care with respect to gender and age; 4) the ethically and culturally dangerous ground of blood draws, diagnostics, and clinical trials; and 5) the ‘capacity for emergency' that caused sudden drops in transmission, and what humanitarians can learn from local knowledge.

My advice is this: Settle! That's right. Don't worry about passion or intense connection. Don't nix a guy based on his annoying habit of yelling "Bravo!" in movie theaters. Overlook his halitosis or abysmal sense of aesthetics. Because if you want to have the infrastructure in place to have a family, settling is the way to go. Based on my observations, in fact, settling will probably make you happier in the long run, since many of those who marry with great expectations become more disillusioned with each passing year. (It's hard to maintain that level of zing when the conversation morphs into discussions about who's changing the diapers or balancing the checkbook.) Obviously, I wasn't always an advocate of settling. In fact, it took not settling to make me realize that settling is the better option, and even though settling is a rampant phenomenon, talking about it in a positive light makes people profoundly uncomfortable. Whenever I make the case for settling, people look at me with creased brows of disapproval or frowns of disappointment, the way a child might look at an older sibling who just informed her that Jerry's Kids aren't going to walk, even if you send them money. It's not only politically incorrect to get behind settling, it's downright un-American. Our culture tells us to keep our eyes on the prize (while our mothers, who know better, tell us not to be so picky), and the theme of holding out for true love (whatever that is—look at the divorce rate) permeates our collective mentality. Even situation comedies, starting in the 1970s with The Mary Tyler Moore Show and going all the way to Friends, feature endearing single women in the dating trenches, and there's supposed to be something romantic and even heroic about their search for true love. Of course, the crucial difference is that, whereas the earlier series begins after Mary has been jilted by her fiancé, the more modern-day Friends opens as Rachel Green leaves her nice-guy orthodontist fiancé at the altar simply because she isn't feeling it. But either way, in episode after episode, as both women continue to be unlucky in love, settling starts to look pretty darn appealing. Mary is supposed to be contentedly independent and fulfilled by her newsroom family, but in fact her life seems lonely. Are we to assume that at the end of the series, Mary, by then in her late 30s, found her soul mate after the lights in the newsroom went out and her work family was disbanded? If her experience was anything like mine or that of my single friends, it's unlikely. And while Rachel and her supposed soul mate, Ross, finally get together (for the umpteenth time) in the finale of Friends, do we feel confident that she'll be happier with Ross than she would have been had she settled down with Barry, the orthodontist, 10 years earlier? She and Ross have passion but have never had long-term stability, and the fireworks she experiences with him but not with Barry might actually turn out to be a liability, given how many times their relationship has already gone up in flames. It's equally questionable whether Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, who cheated on her kindhearted and generous boyfriend, Aidan, only to end up with the more exciting but self-absorbed Mr. Big, will be better off in the framework of marriage and family. (Some time after the breakup, when Carrie ran into Aidan on the street, he was carrying his infant in a Baby Björn. Can anyone imagine Mr. Big walking around with a Björn?)

Souvent ignorée par les automobilistes, la courroie de distribution est pourtant un élément essentiel de la motorisation d'un véhicule. Véritable chef d'orchestre, elle permet de synchroniser plusieurs éléments dans le moteur, en particulier le vilebrequin, la pompe à injection et les arbres à cames. Sans elle, le véhicule ne pourrait tout simplement pas avancer. Il convient donc de faire régulièrement vérifier sa distribution par un garagiste agréé en tenant compte des préconisations du constructeur. La courroie de distribution est l'un des éléments les plus sollicités de votre motorisation. Elle présente à ce titre des risques d'usure importants. Au moindre signe de dysfonctionnement, les garagistes Top Garage sauront déterminer dans les meilleurs délais la cause du problème et remplacer la pièce fautive. Le changement de la courroie est une procédure longue – elle dure en général plus de 4 heures – qui nécessite le recours à des professionnels auto formés et agréés. En utilisant un outillage spécifique, nos garagistes se chargeront du remplacement de votre courroie en respectant les tensions et le montage d'origine. Le cas échéant, ils pourront également remplacer les galets. La fréquence de révision varie en fonction des constructeurs. Elle doit généralement être effectuée tous les 5 ans, ou 150 000 kilomètres, ou après le remplacement d'un joint de culasse ou de la pompe à eau. Pourquoi est-il important de faire vérifier sa distribution ? Une courroie de distribution en bon état garantit le refroidissement de votre moteur et l'alternance des phases d'admission et d'échappement. Devant l'apparition d'un crissement suspect ou la découverte d'une fuite d'huile, il est fortement recommandé de faire appel à l'expertise d'un professionnel de l'automobile.

On ne le dira jamais assez l'importance du pneumatique dans le comportement et la tenue de route d'un véhicule. En tant qu'unique point de contact entre votre automobile et le sol, les pneus jouent un rôle majeur dans la sécurité et le plaisir de conduite. Pour rouler en toute sécurité et profiter au maximum des capacités de votre voiture, il est donc nécessaire de faire régulièrement contrôler l'état de vos pneus et de les changer quand l'usure devient trop importante. Les experts auto Top Garage seront à même de vous guider dans votre démarche d'entretien automobile et de vous proposer des pneumatiques adaptés à votre véhicule. Dès que la surface du pneu atteint le niveau des témoins d'usure situés sur la bande de roulement, il est impératif de monter un train de pneus neufs. Fabriqués dans un mélange de caoutchouc, les pneumatiques s'usent naturellement. La vitesse de dégradation varie en fonction de votre véhicule, de vos habitudes de circulation et de votre style de conduite. Des pneumatiques en bon état assurent la liaison entre votre véhicule et le bitume, participent à la transmission des forces de freinage et d'accélération et encaissent les aspérités du bitume. Sur sol mouillé, ils limiteront en outre fortement les risques d'aquaplaning. Que risque-t-on en roulant avec des pneus usagés ? Distances de freinage allongées, risques d'éclatement, hausse de la consommation, conduite difficile, etc. Les conséquences de pneumatiques en mauvais état sont extrêmement nombreux. Au moindre signe d'usure, il convient donc de prendre rendez-vous avec un garagiste proche de chez vous. Après une série de réglages effectués sur ordinateur et un test route, votre véhicule retrouvera sa tenue de route normale.
