Those insights are based on a study performed at the London School of Economics & Political Science: In a laboratory experiment, participants were first subliminally primed to feel either more competitive or cooperative.

Primed by G P Francis Summary

"Wishing for once her employers could have let her stay dead, Special Operative Angel Leonard is once again revived to fight in a future where technology eliminates freedom of thought, blends real and virtual; where her own mind is her worst enemy." Primed is an innovative and insightful, hard science-fiction thriller (cyberpunk), set in the not-too-distant future. Instantaneous space transit technology has brought humanity to the brink of a massive colonial expansion across the Orion Arm of the Milky Way. The United Nations of Earth declared martial law, justifying unprecedented violations of privacy and human rights throughout the colonies to suppress the armed insurgency of the Orion Arm Conglomerate for Independence, a group of trans-global corporations vying for freedom from UNE's proscriptive laws and unfair colonial taxation. Hopelessly outnumbered, the O.A.C.I. turns to outlawed human cloning and memory transfer technology to revive fallen operatives in their private army. Fiercely loyal to the cause, fearless of death, O.A.C.I.'s veterans return from their graves time and time again, their lifetimes of combat experience and skills restored, carrying out a series of tactical strikes to thwart UNE's overstretched attempt to consolidate power.

Primed for Violence by Paul Brykczynski Summary

In 1922, voters in the newly created Republic of Poland democratically elected their first president, Gabriel Narutowicz. Because his supporters included a Jewish political party, an opposing faction of antisemites demanded his resignation. Within hours, bloody riots erupted in Warsaw, and within a week the president was assassinated. In the wake of these events, the radical right asserted that only "ethnic Poles" should rule the country, while the left silently capitulated to this demand. As Paul Brykczynski tells this gripping story, he explores the complex role of antisemitism, nationalism, and violence in Polish politics between the two World Wars. Though focusing on Poland, the book sheds light on the rise of the antisemitic right in Europe and beyond, and on the impact of violence on political culture and discourse.

Primed to Perform by Neel Doshi,Lindsay McGregor Summary

The revolutionary book that teaches you how to use the cutting edge of human psychology to build high performing workplace cultures. Too often, great cultures feel like magic. While most leaders believe culture is critical to success, few know how to build one, or sustain it over time. What if you knew the science behind the magic—a science so predictive and powerful that you could transform your organization? What if you could use cutting edge psychology to unlock people’s innate desire to innovate, experiment, and adapt? In Primed to Perform, Neel Doshi and Lindsay McGregor show you how to do just that. The result: higher sales, more loyal customers, and more passionate employees. Primed to Perform explains the counter-intuitive science behind great cultures, building on over a century of academic thinking. It shares the simple, highly predictive new measurement tool—the Total Motivation (ToMo) Factor—that enables you to measure the strength of your culture, and track improvements over time. It explores the authors’ original research into how Total Motivation leads to higher performance in iconic companies, from Apple to Starbucks to Southwest Airlines. Most importantly, it teaches you to build great cultures, using a systematic and sustainable approach. High performing cultures cant be left to chance. Organizations must create systems that shape and maintain them. Whether you’re a five-person team or a startup, a school, a nonprofit or a mega-institution, Primed to Perform shows you how.

Lexical Priming by Michael Hoey Summary

Lexical Priming proposes a radical new theory of the lexicon, which amounts to a completely new theory of language based on how words are used in the real world. Here they are not confined to the definitions given to them in dictionaries but instead interact with other words in common patterns of use. Using concrete statistical evidence from a corpus of newspaper English, but also referring to travel writing and literary text, the author argues that words are 'primed' for use through our experience with them, so that everything we know about a word is a product of our encounters with it. This knowledge explains how speakers of a language succeed in being fluent, creative and natural.

The Primed Drinker by Teresa Rodden Rodden Summary

Alcoholism has become a powerful belief system. When you take on the identity of an alcoholic, not only do you have to address your physical habit to drink, but you've also got to navigate who you're supposed to be, how you should think, and what your behavior will be.Our culture makes a one-size-fits-all assumption in which, if you mention a struggle with alcohol, no matter how much of a struggle it is, you're labeled alcoholic and start moving along the recovery conveyor belt. Teresa Rodden is out to change that!The Primed Drinker explores the often overlooked middle ground between social and alcoholic drinking. Through Rodden's personal experience, case studies, and exploration of science that disrupts the common understanding of alcoholism (addiction), she raises powerful questions about how to change your relationship with alcohol and offers promising solutions."Rodden's message is revolutionary: the time has come for women to start rethinking their drinking so they can start loving their lives. Exploring the continuum of choices from abstinence to mindful moderation to misuse, she gives readers a step-by-step approach to carve a new path in life, free of struggles with alcohol."Laura Crawshaw, Ph.D., BCC, Founder of The Executive Insight Development Group, Inc.& The Boss Whispering Institute"The Primed Drinker drives home how sobriety is much more than simply not drinking or participating in addictive behavior. Through Teresa's artfully shared examples of her own journey to contentment through "not wanting to miss another second of life," she speaks to the true essence of sobriety. She has identified what often drives problem drinking in women: when we feel powerless and trapped in our obligations and multiple roles. Teresa provides an exciting alternative approach to addiction recovery, through fully and mindfully embracing our core life force from Spirit and our power to choose. By focusing on creating our passion-filled lives, we no longer have the need to numb out."Mimi Cogswell, LPC, PCMental Health TherapistThe Primed Drinker has absolutely nailed the complex neuroscience and contemporary research in a most compelling and accessible way. Anyone who reads this book cannot fail to leave it without an engaged mind and re think of their own vocabulary around alcohol.

The Psychology of Implicit Emotion Regulation by Sander L Koole,Klaus Rothermund Summary

Implicit emotion regulation is pervasive in everyday life and contributes considerably to the effectiveness of emotion regulation.

Battles of the Red River War by J. Brett Cruse Summary

Battles of the Red River War unearths a long-buried record of the collision of two cultures. In 1874, U.S. forces led by Col. Ranald S. Mackenzie carried out a surprise attack on several Cheyenne, Comanche, and Kiowa bands that had taken refuge in the Palo Duro Canyon of the Texas panhandle and destroyed their winter stores and horses. After this devastating loss, many of these Indians returned to their reservations and effectively brought to a close what has come to be known as the Red River War, a campaign carried out by the U.S. Army during 1874 as a result of Indian attacks on white settlers in the region. After this operation, the Southern Plains Indians would never again pose a coherent threat to whites’ expansion and settlement across their ancestral homelands. Until now, the few historians who have undertaken to tell the story of the Red River War have had to rely on the official records of the battles and a handful of extant accounts, letters, and journals of the U.S. Army participants. Starting in 1998, J. Brett Cruse, under the auspices of the Texas Historical Commission, conducted archeological investigations at six battle sites. In the artifacts they unearthed, Cruse and his teams found clues that would both correct and complete the written records and aid understanding of the Indian perspectives on this clash of cultures. Including a chapter on historiography and archival research by Martha Doty Freeman and an analysis of cartridges and bullets by Douglas D. Scott, this rigorously researched and lavishly illustrated work will commend itself to archeologists, military historians and scientists, and students and scholars of the Westward Expansion.

Erotica by Michelle Tran Summary

Kara's entry into another world is only just beginning. Kara discovers what's inside her, and what she becomes capable of through a friend's help and her own desires. I let out a heavy sigh and rolled onto my back to stare at the white ceiling overhead. I'm not sure why I was even surprised anymore. In the past five years that I had been married to Peter Dawson, he'd leave our bed before I could open my eyes, more times than I cared to remember. The only evidence that I had that he even came to bed at night was the dent on his pillow and his clothes strewn across our bedroom floor. I wouldn't say our marriage was an unhappy one exactly. Scratch that, I was the one who was unhappy in the marriage. Peter, on the other hand, never complained and constantly showered me with gifts. He gave me anything I asked for, except the one thing I coveted most: his attention. He worked long hours and did tons of travelling for work and when he got home, he always seemed distracted. When I asked him about it, I always got the same answer: "It's just work honey." Hmmm.
