If you're one of the billions of people in the world who work for someone else, you'll definitely want to see what's inside Defective Bosses: Working for the "Dysfunctional Dozen." This how-to, how-not-to, why, and why-not tour guide is packed to the hilt with a bevy of tested and proven survival skills and coping techniques for those of you who are trapped in that daily labyrinth of mind games and self-defeating work rituals--and all because of that slightly off-center superior you have to answer to every day. You'll find twelve of the most common defects presented to you in clear and understandable terms so you can detect the defect, protect state of mind, and correct the problem before your life at the office becomes a complete wreck.Firmly grounded in psychiatric literature, Defective Bosses takes you to levels of workplace happiness that other similar publications fail to reach. In contrast to other books that lack a solid theoretical base, this comprehensive, systematic look at dysfunctional bosses takes an in-depth look at twelve of the most prevalent disorders managers and superiors inflict on their employees in the workplace, giving equal treatment to each category and providing you with equal strategies for each situation you might encounter. These and other areas will help you turn your dead-end job into a dream occupation: an overview of why we have defective bosses dealing with self-centered bosses (narcissistic, sociopathic, paranoid, and histrionic) handling controlling bosses (authoritarian, obsessive-compulsive, explosive, and passive-aggressive) living with neurotic bosses (masochistic, dependent, depressive, anxious) end-of-the-chapter quizzes to help you diagnose your own boss "I need it yesterday!" "Can you handle this for me? I've got the company lunch." "If you don't get this in, it's your job!" If these are all-too-common phrases in your workplace, then you need to make a memo to yourself to order Defective Bosses. Its thorough psychological base and examples gleaned from real-life scenarios will give you so much guidance, advice, and direction for positive change, you'll find that you're the boss when it comes to good departmental relationships and a more mutually enjoyable work environment.

Histone Deacetylase Inhibitors (HDIs) - Pharmacology, Uses & Health Effects (Hardcover): Beverly D Carson Histone Deacetylase Inhibitors (HDIs) - Pharmacology, Uses & Health Effects (Hardcover)
Beverly D Carson
R2,312 R1,561 Discovery Miles 15 610 Save R751 (32%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDIs) are good anti-cancer targets. Histone acetyltransferases (HATs) and HDIs play opposite roles in the regulation of gene expression via an epigenetic mechanism. HATs catalyse the acetylation of lysine residues in histone tails, facilitating and sustaining gene transcription. HDIs remove the acetyl moieties from the epsilon-amine of lysine residues of histone tails, leading to a more condensed form of chromatin and preventing gene transcription. This book focuses on the use of HDIs for the treatment of lymphoid malignancies; myeloid malignancies; and breast cancer.

A Philanthropic Covenant will feature eight essays from several prominent African American grantmakers, scholars, activists and clergy that will examine critical elements of modern philanthropy and how they affect Black communities for good and for ill. Each chapter will include statistical documentation of the issues, strategic recommendations to improve the quality of Black life, and examples of outstanding models already being practiced throughout the country. A Philanthropic Covenant is intended to inform individuals, grantors, religious organizations, fundraisers and youth how philanthropy--time, talent and treasure--can be strategically mobilized to assist Black communities in dealing more effectively with the issues outlined in The Covenant with Black America. Throughout the book, emphasis will be placed on the role, responsibilities and potential of African Americans and African-American philanthropy, in particular, to affect positive change in their own communities.

When Andrew Carson joined the United States Army in 1941, he was promised good food, travel, a supply of clothing, a place to sleep, and thirty dollars a month. Within seven weeks, Private Carson was shipped to the Philippines - with no boot camp, no training, not one minute of close order drill. Captured by the Japanese less than one year later, the young soldier endured the hardships of the Cabanatuan prison camps, nearly died from dysentery, and then was put aboard a Japanese hellship bound for Japan. There, he worked in the Fukuoa coal mines, a virtual slave laborer until Japan surrendered. This is the harrowing tale of one man's survival, and how he came through the ordeal with dignity and respect for his fellow soldiers.

This book makes available for the first time comparable, detailed socioeconomic breakdowns of the monetary donations made by blacks as well as whites. Its 55 tables identify the average dollar amounts donated to various types of charitable organizations and the methods of fundraising to which donors considered themselves most responsive. Based on national polls commissioned by the Joint Center for Political Studies and on reviews of selected charitable organizations in eight cities, Dr. Carson's findings suggest that although the overall frequency of giving is identical for blacks and whites, blacks are much more responsive than whites to charitable appeals made or endorsed by members of the clergy, suggesting a venue many fundraisers may need to take more seriously if they are to reach black donors.

With Gladness and Singleness of Heart; My Life with My Lord is the spiritual journey of a man named R. Logan Carson who was born black and without physical sight in the hills of North Carolina in the early 1930's. Even before he knew Christ as Lord and Saviour, God's hand was on him from the earliest point in time. Coming from a family who thought he would be a burden to them, the author tells how God led him from the hills, to a segregated school for the blind, and what transpired from that point on. The barriers of racial, economic and social discrimination were overcome by the leadership of God. How he came to his present position as Distinguished Professor of Christian Theology at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, NC, and how he was blessed with a loving, caring wife and two children is the inspiring story of one who hopes that others surrounded by barriers and "handicaps" will let God lead them to higher heights and greater gains so that they, too, may praise Him "with gladness and singleness of heart" (Acts 2:46).

Benjamin D. Carson
R1,319 Discovery Miles 13 190 Out of stock

This collection, broad in its scope, explores rich and multi-faceted literary works by and about Native Americans from the "long" early American period to the present. What links these essays is a concern for the ways in which Native Americans have navigated, negotiated, and resisted dominant white ideology since the founding of the Republic. Importantly, these essays are historically situated and consider not only the ways in which indigenous peoples are represented in American literature and history, but pay much needed attention to the actual lived experiences of Native Americans inside and outside of native communities. By addressing cross-cultural protest, resistance to dominant white ideology, the importance to Natives of land and land redress, sovereignty, separatism, and cultural healing, Sovereignty, Separatism, and Survivance contributes to our understanding of the discrepancy between ideological representations of native peoples and the real-life consequences those representations have for the ways in which indigenous peoples live out their daily lives.
