Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves.
Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” -- standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident -- can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.
Amy Cuddy’s research on body language reveals that we can change other people’s perceptions — and even our own body chemistry — simply by changing body positions.
Skylight filmed the entire genocide trial of Efraín Rios Montt and José Mauricio Rodríguez Sánchez from the day it started on March 19, 2013 to its conclusion on May 10, 2013.
Efraín Ríos Montt, was head of state in Guatemala for nearly seventeen months during 1982 and 1983, and José Mauricio Rodríguez Sánchez, was his chief of military intelligence.
The charges of genocide and crimes against humanity arose from systematic massacres of the country’s indigenous population carried out by Guatemalan troops and paramilitary forces during Rios Montt’s rule during the country’s long and brutal armed conflict.
These 24 webisodes take you inside the courtroom to illuminate important highlights from this historic trial. This is the first former head of state to face charges in a domestic court.
This trial was an important milestone in holding political and military leaders accountable for unspeakable crimes. The completion of this trial, along with the verdict and sentencing, contribute to the national acknowledgement of genocide and crimes committed against the nation’s indigenous people.
It is the first time that anyone has been tried and convicted for genocide of indigenous people, anywhere in the Americas.
In 2014 we will release a new documentary film “500 YEARS”, based on this trial. It will continue the story that began with When the Mountains Tremble in 1982, and continued with Granito: How to Nail a Dictator in 2011.
Facing ourselves squarely at this difficult moment might provide a better lesson for the future than allowing ourselves to once again give in to blind fury.
This past week was of course a searing reminder: Monday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon and the ensuing manhunt that ended on Friday with the death of one suspect and the capture of another, his brother, dominated the news. But there were other troubling, if less traumatic reminders, too. On Tuesday, a 577-page report by the Constitution Project concluded that the United States had engaged in torture after the Sept. 11 attacks. On Wednesday, a turning point in the heated national debate on gun control was reached when the United States Senate dropped consideration of some minimal restrictions on the sale and distribution of guns. Looming above all this is the painful memory of the mass killing at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Work-life balance, says Nigel Marsh, is too important to be left in the hands of your employer. Marsh lays out an ideal day balanced between family time, personal time and productivity -- and offers some stirring encouragement to make it happen.

This brief essay attempts to link two conceptualizations of the important relationship of the on and offline. I will connect (1) my argument that we should abandon the digital dualist assumption that the on and offline are separate in favor of the view that they enmesh into an augmented reality and (2) the problematic view that the Internet transcends social structures to produce something “objective” (or “flat” to use Thomas Friedman’s term).
Navigating the Politics of Fieldwork Using Institutional Ethnography: Strategies for Practice
Discussion and analysis of characteristics and tensions associated with fieldwork in two projects using institutional ethnography is the focus of this article. Examined in comparison with each other, the first exemplar explores the organization of the Canadian immigration system and the mandatory medical screening for the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) of immigrants within this. The second exemplar looks at how nurses' work in a selection of Canadian hospitals is organized. The argument made is that the politics of deliberately maintaining a standpoint on the side of a set of people (immigrants with HIV and nurses)—where inquiry begins from the experiential knowledge and concerns with the world of these constituents—gives rise to challenges to which the researcher must contend and adapt. Mobilizing examples from our fieldwork, we explore several such challenges and explain the research decisions we made in the face of these. In this article, we present insights and practical strategies for researchers who are preparing to use institutional ethnography as a strategy for critical social inquiry.

The network of international co-authorship relations has been dominated by certain European nations and the USA, but this network is rapidly expanding at the global level. Between 40 and 50 countries appear in the center of the international network in 2011, and almost all (201) nations are nowadays involved in international collaboration. In this brief communication, we present both a global map with the functionality of a Google Map (zooming, etc.) and network maps based on normalized relations. These maps reveal complementary aspects of the network. International collaboration in the generation of knowledge claims (that is, the context of discovery) changes the structural layering of the sciences. Previously, validation was at the global level and discovery more dependent on local contexts. This changing relationship between the geographical and intellectual dimensions of the sciences also has implications for national science policies.

So far this year, over 400 healthcare conferences have registered their hashtag with Symplur. It’s an amazing number! We’ve commented on the growth of Twitter use in healthcare conferences in the past, and we plan to publish some more healthcare social media analytics in the time to come. Conference organizers register their hashtags with us for several reasons, awareness in the healthcare social media community and access to some basic analytics and Twitter transcripts. Analytics are a lot of fun and we’ve observed much increased interest in what one can learn from these datasets that each conference leaves behind. From all the data we collect and analyze the question quickly becomes, “how can we present this data?” How to present the data is dependent on what questions you want answered and what story you want to tell, but the data is almost always presented in a visual form.

I’ve been a surgeon for eight years. For the past couple of them, my performance in the operating room has reached a plateau. I’d like to think it’s a good thing—I’ve arrived at my professional peak. But mainly it seems as if I’ve just stopped getting better.
During the first two or three years in practice, your skills seem to improve almost daily. It’s not about hand-eye coördination—you have that down halfway through your residency. As one of my professors once explained, doing surgery is no more physically difficult than writing in cursive. Surgical mastery is about familiarity and judgment. You learn the problems that can occur during a particular procedure or with a particular condition, and you learn how to either prevent or respond to those problems.
Say you’ve got a patient who needs surgery for appendicitis. These days, surgeons will typically do a laparoscopic appendectomy. You slide a small camera—a laparoscope—into the abdomen through a quarter-inch incision near the belly button, insert a long grasper through an incision beneath the waistline, and push a device for stapling and cutting through an incision in the left lower abdomen. Use the grasper to pick up the finger-size appendix, fire the stapler across its base and across the vessels feeding it, drop the severed organ into a plastic bag, and pull it out. Close up, and you’re done. That’s how you like it to go, anyway. But often it doesn’t.
In the “Undocumented Americans,” video, three youth share their experiences growing up as undocumented immigrants in the United States.
Undocumented immigrant youth recount their challenges in new APA videoThree individuals who grew up as undocumented immigrants in the United States tell their personal stories in this documentary video that reinforces the need for attention to the mental health needs of immigrants.
In APA’s “Undocumented Americans,” three youths – Jong-Min, Pedro and Silvia – share their experiences as undocumented immigrants in the United States. Brought to this country at an early age by their parents, these children grew up to be American in every way, but they continue to face significant challenges due to their documentation status. APA Presidential Task Force on Immigration Chair Carola Suárez-Orozco, PhD, appears in the video to explain many of the psychological ramifications of undocumented status, such as isolation from American peers, stress in pursuing and financing higher education, fears of detention and deportation as well as the trauma of separation from family and loved ones.
Many people find it hard to distinguish between the two.
To make strategy more interesting — and different from a budget — we need to break free of this obsession with planning. Strategy is not planning — it is the making of an integrated set of choices that collectively position the firm in its industry so as to create sustainable advantage relative to competition and deliver superior financial returns. I find that once this is made clear to line managers they recognize that strategy is not just fancily-worded budgeting and they get much more interested in it.
Obviously you can't execute a strategy without initiatives, investments, and budgeting. But what you need to get managers focused on before you start on those things is the strategy that will make these initiatives coherent.
That strategy is a singular thing; there is one strategy for a given business — not a set of strategies. It is one integrated set of choices: what is our winning aspiration; where will we play; how will we win; what capabilities need to be in place; and what management systems must be instituted?
Priya Parker argues this generation of leaders suffers from an abundance of choice and a fear of choosing that prevents us from fulfilling our potential. She...
