Over the past decade, 24/7 connectivity has given us not only convenience and fun but worries about privacy, interruptions while working or trying to enjoy family or other downtime, and new compulsions — from shopping to tweeting and cute-cat watching. Anne Katherine, one of the authors who brought boundary setting to a mass audience, has now written a book on how to set healthy boundaries with technology. The first of its kind, this resource doesn't suggest anyone go “cold turkey.” Instead, it helps people make social media, smart phones, and other innovations work for, rather than against, them. Readers learn to protect themselves online in every way — from predators and data mining as well as time-devouring friends and acquaintances — with an emphasis on preserving and optimizing meaningful personal connections. Anyone who has ever wondered if their cute little gadget was actually an enemy invader will welcome Katherine's strategies for ensuring “that your life is truly your own.”

Millions of people experience symptoms of central sensitization (CS) and central sensitivity syndromes (CSS) such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and multiple chemical sensitivities. Yet many lack diagnoses, education and resources. Without proper support, some patients may become withdrawn, suffering needlessly and possibly developing mental illness. Covering the syndromes within the context of central sensitization (CS), this book provides candid personal experience, strategies for symptom management, and suggested methods for coping and long-term healing, with easy-to-understand science. This book is for both patients and medical providers who deal with Central Sensitization and/or Central Sensitivity Syndromes such as these: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Fibromyalgia Multiple Chemical Sensitivities Irritable Larynx Syndrome POTS Orthostatic Intolerance Irritable Bowel Syndrome Restless Legs Syndrome Peridodic Limb Movements in Sleep Costochondritis Migraine headaches Myofascial Pain Syndrome and several other chronic pain syndromes These conditions can be incredibly isolating and wreak havoc on all aspects of people's lives biological, psychological, social, and financial. The book teaches patients and medical providers alike about the science behind Central Sensitization and Central Sensitivity Syndromes (CSS), the overlapping nature of the syndromes, and how to manage symptoms, increase functionality, cope with the overarching impact of these conditions, and improve quality of life. Having stumbled through medical system and insurance hoops, job loss, home loss, and debilitating symptoms for nearly two years before gaining a diagnosis, Titani has a mile-long list of lessons learned. In this inspiring and educational book, she provides easily digestible scientific facts and shares her experiences with humor, compassion, and with every intention to educate both patients and medical providers, and to save patients from her mistakes and help them make their own lives better. Part handbook, part memoir, and part pure healing compassion, this book is for medical providers, caregivers, and anyone who has Central Sensitization and/or any of the CSS. In addition to gaining a firm understanding of a primary mechanism behind these illnesses, patients will discover that they are not alone with these conditions, and they will gain a compassionate companion as they confront the challenges Central Sensitization and CSS present. The book's foreword is written by Ric Arseneau, M.D., an academic internist and clinical associate professor at the University of British Columbia. He is also the director of program planning at the Complex Chronic Diseases Program at BC Women s Hospital, an innovative new program with a focus on ME/CFS, FM, MCS and related Central Sensitivity Syndromes (CSS). He has more than 20 years of experience working with patients with CSS.

To Hell With The Hustle

New York Times bestselling author Jefferson Bethke delivers a call to resist our cultural worship of connectivity and achievement before we lose the essentials that make us distinctly and deeply human. Our culture makes constant demands of us. Do more. Accomplish more. Buy more. Post more. Tweet more. And in following those demands, we have indeed become more--more anxious, more tired, more hurt, more depressed, more frantic. What we are doing isn't working because, Jefferson Bethke argues, we have forgotten the fundamentals that make us human, the things that anchor our lives, providing us with roots and meaning. In this highly anticipated new book, Jefferson Bethke delivers a wake-up call to resist our culture and embrace the slowness of Jesus. To stop doing and start becoming by proactively setting up boundaries in our lives and cultivating disciplines within them. He shows his readers how to find landmarks, anchors, and rhythms that provide depth and meaning and that push back against the demands of contemporary life. And he reveals that what the world teaches us to avoid at all costs--things such as silence, obscurity, solitude, and vulnerability--are the very things that can give us the meaning, depth, order, and the richness we are truly looking for.

Symmetrization Applications

The study of isoperimetric inequalities involves a fascinating interplay of analysis, geometry and the theory of partial differential equations. Several conjectures have been made and while many have been resolved, a large number still remain open.One of the principal tools in the study of isoperimetric problems, especially when spherical symmetry is involved, is Schwarz symmetrization, which is also known as the spherically symmetric and decreasing rearrangement of functions. The aim of this book is to give an introduction to the theory of Schwarz symmetrization and study some of its applications.The book gives an modern and up-to-date treatment of the subject and includes several new results proved recently. Effort has been made to keep the exposition as simple and self-contained as possible. A knowledge of the existence theory of weak solutions of elliptic partial differential equations in Sobolev spaces is, however, assumed. Apart from this and a general mathematical maturity at the graduate level, there are no other prerequisites.
