No importa cuáles sean tus necesidades, el mercado puede satisfacerlas, y la mejor parte es que no deberás pagar ni un centavo. En esta oportunidad presentaremos a cinco de los editores gráficos más importantes, y en la lista aparece un programa que acaba de cumplir veinte años entre nosotros.

How stress can tweak the brain to sabotage self-control | Selfcontrol and Miscellany | Scoop.it
A challenging morning meeting or an interaction with an upset client at work may affect whether we go for that extra chocolate bar at lunch. In a study, researchers placed human volunteers in a similar food choice scenario to explore how stress can alter the brain to impair self-control when we're confronted with a choice.

Los audios se encuentran disponibles bajo distintos tipos de licencias libres, por lo general Creative Commons, por lo que debemos fijarnos atentamente en la licencia de cada pista que descarguemos.

From Book Creator to printed book - Book Creator app | Blog

From Book Creator to printed book - Book Creator app | Blog | Selfcontrol and Miscellany | Scoop.it
I have been making printed versions of books made with Book Creator on an iPad for many years. The app produces a really decent file for hard copy printing.

First thing to realise is that your video and sound files won’t work on paper. I know that sounds silly but people sometimes get upset when they first realise this. What you do get is a paper book which looks like it was purchased from a bookstore – it looks so professional.
