I looked at my reflection and despaired. As an exhausted young mother I felt ugly and saw that a new dress or face cream would never help. I was at risk of passing on a habit of feeling miserable about my looks to my baby girl—if nothing changed. Soon afterward Phoebe Baker Hyde made a vow: to give up new clothes, makeup, haircuts, and jewelry in hopes of revealing something she had always paid lip service to but never quite believed in—her inner beauty. The Beauty Experiment chronicles Hyde’s quest for self-acceptance in nothing but her own skin. In thoughtful, exquisite prose, Hyde holds up a mirror to all women and shows how perfectionism can keep us from achieving what we really want: happiness, confidence, and serenity.

Proceedings of the Third Topical Seminar on Heavy Flavours
Author: F. Grancagnolo,F.-L. Navarria
Heavy Flavors covers the proceedings of the Third Topical Seminar on Heavy Flavors, held in San Miniato, Italy on June 17-21, 1991. The book focuses on the reactions, properties, characteristics, and transformations of heavy flavors. The publication first offers information on flavor factories and monochromatization as the way to maximum luminosity B-factories, as well as design strategies and parameters, requirements, luminosity limitations, and B-factory with monochromatization and vertical separation. The book then ponders on theoretical results in heavy quark hadroproduction; heavy flavor production at high energies; and leptonic decay constants of heavy mesons. The book examines heavy baryon transitions and the heavy quark effective theory; non universality of nucleon sea distributions probed by neutrinos and muons; and heavy flavor physics at hadron colliders. The publication is a dependable reference for readers interested in the study of heavy flavors.
Beauty is what we all desire; companies spend sleepless nights developing the best formula for the best beauty enhancing product - BUT WAIT! - What if the product has the ability to change your core DNA and base your beauty on your personality? Before such a product is rolled out a test has to be done to two individuals of different personality so the results can be compared - but alas the results are shocking and interesting to curious minds. This is just one but another of the questions in the ongoing technological developments at a microscopic level and the possible impacts it has on the big picture.

The bestselling classic that redefined our view of the relationship between beauty and female identity . Every day, women around the world are confronted with a dilemma – how to look. In a society embroiled in a cult of female beauty and youthfulness, pressure on women to conform physically is constant and all-pervading. In this iconic, gripping and frank exposé, Naomi Wolf exposes the tyranny of the beauty myth through the ages and its oppressive function today, in the home and at work, in literature and the media, in relationships between men and women, between women and women. With pertinent and intelligent examples, she confronts the beauty industry and its advertising and uncovers the reasons why women are consumed by this destructive obsession. ‘Essential reading’ Guardian ‘A smart, angry, insightful book, and a clarion call to freedom. Every woman should read it’ Gloria Steinem
The beauty of physics lies in its coherence in terms of a few fundamental concepts and principles. Even physicists have occasion to marvel at the overarching reach of basic principles and their ability to account for features stretching from the microscopic sub-atomic world to the cosmological expanses of the Universe. While mathematics is its natural language, physics is mostly about patterns, connections, and relations between objects and phenomena, and it is this aspect that is emphasized in this book. Since science tries to connect phenomena that at first sight appear widely different, while boiling them down to a small set of essential principles and laws, metaphor and analogy pervade our subject. Consider the pendulum, its swing from one extreme to the other often invoked in social or economic contexts. In molecular vibrations, such as in the CO2 molecule, the quantum motions of electrons and nuclei are metaphorically the pendulums. In electromagnetic radiation, including the visible light we observe, there are not even any concrete material particles, only electric and magnetic fields executing simple harmonic motion. But, to a physicist, they are all "just a pendulum". The selection of topics reflects the author's own four-decade career in research physics and his resultant perspective on the subject. While aimed primarily at physicists, including junior students, this book also addresses other readers who are willing to think with symbols and simple algebra in understanding the physical world around us. Each chapter, on themes such as dimensions, transformations, symmetries, or maps, begins with simple examples accessible to all while connecting them later to more sophisticated realizations in more advanced topics of physics.
We will all live decades longer than our grandparents and parents and will have better health in our later years. With this enhanced longevity, we all want to look as young as we feel. Especially because we are inundated with images of youthful beauty on television, in films, and in glossy fashion magazines, we feel social pressure to improve our appearance. Aspiring to maintain "eternal youth" and to look good is not new and is not just superficial "vanity." Our human nature dictates that we take care of ourselves and enhance our appearance. Throughout history, women from Cleopatra to Marie Antoinette to today's movie stars have used cosmetics and nutrients to beautify and rejuvenate. Indeed recent psychological studies have proven that the better we look, the better we feel, and the healthier, happier, and more productive we become.

In the early 1970s, when yoga was new to the West, I followed a programme on television called "Yoga with Richard Hittleman." Over the weeks, I was drawn to want to know more about why I was beginning to feel so much better, both physically and spiritually. I trained under many different teachers and was taught many different styles, from which I devised my own yoga routines that I have been teaching for forty years. My yoga classes over the years have been a haven for people living in this fast-paced city of London, an oasis from which they can leave refreshed, bright-eyed, and ready to face the challenges of modern-day life. This book comprehensively covers all aspects of yoga, from the physical, which helps a person become stronger and more centred, to the philosophical and mental states of understanding that yoga helps bring about. The Beauty of Yoga in Life delves into the origins of yoga and how it has developed over the centuries, as well as spurring mental faculties through the mind/body benefits. Since 2,000 years before Christ, yoga has been used in India and perfected by others to strengthen and bring health to both mind and body. The word yoga means yoke, a yoking together and a bringing of harmony to oneself, especially useful in today's stressed populations. The spiritual understanding of yoga is explained and how all paths of yoga lead not only to self-improvement but to spirituality.
