Who were the most influential people in the world and for what.
I think i’m a bit ignorant in this area and i’d like to gain some information on the subject.Detailed answers are appreciated. The more knowledge the better 🙂
Congratulations on your desire to learn more about this subject.Michael Hart wrote a book called The 100, giving details about the 100 most influential people in history. Following is a quote from a review of the book at Amazon (where you can buy it if you are interested): http://www.amazon.com/100-Ranking-Influe…A reviewer named MRSJEM wrote: “First off, this book is not western european inclined, even though a great deal of influence on the world came from western europe according to the author…18 are from the Asian area. 4 more from the African and South American areas.The emphasis of this book is on the individual’s influence. I ran this as a contest of sorts on a message board and here’s some info to help you decide if the book might be interesting to you:(1) Look to how this person influenced the people around him, for good or bad, and also how it impacted later people.;(2) people who impacted their generation but not later ones in any sense got less of a ranking or far less;(3) this guy is pretty fair in giving rankings to non European types;(4) sometimes the person’s goals weren’t fulfilled but they did something indirectly that later became a big deal;(5) some did only one thing out of many, that may have looked small at the time, that ranked them on the list.(6) the uniqueness of the person is sometimes taken into account, meaning the event is unlikely to have happened without this person; and(7) some people build upon the ideas or methods of others so the first one will sometimes get more credit.Here’s a ranking of the types of professions to help a little:SCIENTIESTS AND INVENTORS (37)POLITICAL AND MILITARY LEADERS (30)SECULAR PHILOSOPHERS (14)RELIGIOUS LEADERS (11)ARTISTIC AND LITERARY FIGURES (6)EXPLORERS (2)”Finally – here is the list of names – if you want to do more research online, this site has links to information about each of them: http://www.dlmark.net/hundred.htmMuhammad Isaac Newton Jesus Christ Buddha Confucius St. Paul Ts’ai Lun Johann Gutenberg Christopher Columbus Albert Einstein Louis Pasteur Galileo Galilei Aristotle Euclid Moses Charles Darwin Shih Huang Ti Augustus Caesar Nicolaus Copernicus Antoine Laurent Lavoisier Constantine the Great James Watt Michael Faraday James Clerk Maxwell Martin Luther George Washington Karl Marx Orville and Wilbur Wright Genghis Kahn Adam Smith Edward de Vere John Dalton Alexander the Great Napoleon Bonaparte Thomas Edison Antony van Leeuwenhoek William T.G.

how can I feel better.
how can I feel better?I try to be very positive on average, but sometimes the past just comes back to haunt me. Growing up my parents made me move schools a lot and as a result I became desperate for friendship. I felt that once I found good friends I was forced to give them a goodbye. I met some pretty crappy…

Here are a few key phrases you wrote that stood out for me.I let this guyI let all these people step on meI let her get away with a lot of stuffthey harmed me as far as I allowed them toDo you see a pattern here?So your next question would naturally be why do I let them?Your answer may be you feel unworthy. WHY?How do you gain value for yourself?Your answer lies in your own letter!What is it you want from these people? Read your letter!You want to feel valued by them right?Here is the secret formula for getting that value! Ready!?If you give people what they want you can have everything YOU want!Want to be valued? Add value to people!Want money? Give money!Want to be heard? LISTEN!Want love? Give love!wanna be smarter? TEACH!Think about it! ( trust me I need to as well) I aint perfict!

What cant mind power do.
well ive heard a lot about it and i believe in it. but ive asked a question before “can i get rid of an old scare by meditation?” and the answers were NO. Now here my other question goes …how can meditation heal hopeless cases in cancer patients and for people addicted to drugs and not help in mending…
mind power can help people come to terms and accept dreadful consequences. if you have terminal cancer a positive mental attitude can help you come to terms with death and be more accepting. When you dwell on the negative aspects of life and compare your failings to another’s successes, you can become depressed and discouraged.10 Ways to Build a Positive Mental AttitudeBy Dieter PauwelsThe choice is yoursYour life is the product and result of your choices. You always have (and had) a choice. You can choose to let the current state of the economy bring you down or you can choose to look for opportunities in the face of adversity and challenge. Choose to focus your attention on what you can do and what you will achieve. The way you choose to see the world creates the world you see.Limit your time in front of the TVInstead read a positive book, start a project, pick up a new hobby, spend some quality time with your family, or do something that will enhance your life. Manage your time around your highest priorities and values.Build the habit of using positive languageListen to the words you use. Avoid words like ‘always’, ‘never’, ‘can’t’, ‘won’t’ and even ‘why.’Say ‘I choose’ or ‘I want’, instead of ‘I need’ or ‘I should’ and notice the difference.Surround yourself with positive peopleSurround yourself with people who have a positive influence in your life, people who speak the truth and support you. Expand your circle of positive influence with people who are further ahead in personal and professional development than you are. Disassociate with negative people who impede your progress.Develop a “Givers Gain” mentalityGive away what you seek without expectation or measuring. When you seek success, help others to be successful. When you seek happiness, help others to find happiness first.Invest in yourselfListen to positive attitude audio CD’s, invest in courses or workshops or attend personal development seminars. Read books from people like Napoleon Hill, Earl Nightingale, Jim Rohn, Charles Swindoll, John Maxwell, Dale Carnegie, Anthony Robbins, Jeffrey Gitomer, Wayne Dyer, Norman Vincent Peale, Ken Blanchard, Jack Canfield and many others. People who write about how you can and will, not why you can’t or won’t.Let go of anger, resentment and judgementHanging on to negative emotions like anger or resentment will drain your energy and hinders you from moving forward to create positive change in your life. The best way to let go of these emotions is to fully acknowledge the feelings associated with the initial negative experience. Honor those feelings and let them go as they no longer serve you, and replace them with something positive. You can still hold on to the lessons learned from the initial negative experience.Create positive, realistic expectations and take actionAll too often people try to live up to the expectations of others, such as a parent, a manager or a significant other. Make sure your expectations are congruent with who you really are. You are what you believe, and you become what you expect. Expect the best, and only the best, from life, from others, and from yourself. Take action on your expectations.Stop believing in what you think is true and start believing in what you really wantIdentify and let go of limiting beliefs that no longer support or honour you. Instead develop empowering beliefs that are aligned with your goals, values and your heart’s desire.Take responsibility for your own lifeFocus your attention on what you can control: your thoughts, your actions, your behaviour, your emotional state and your daily actions and activities. You’re the steward of your own life and are solely responsible for the results and experiences you create. Taking ownership and responsibility for your own life is a freedom and tremendous privilege.It all starts with your attitude.

Joseph John Thomson was born in Cheetham Hill, a suburb of Manchester on December 18, 1856. He enrolled at Owens College, Manchester, in 1870, and in 1876 entered Trinity College, Cambridge as a minor scholar. He became a Fellow of Trinity College in 1880, when he was Second Wrangler and Second Smith’s Prizeman, and he remained a member of the College for the rest of his life, becoming Lecturer in 1883 and Master in 1918. He was Cavendish Professor of Experimental Physics at Cambridge, where he succeeded Lord Rayleigh, from 1884 to 1918 and Honorary Professor of Physics, Cambridge and Royal Institution, London.Thomson’s early interest in atomic structure was reflected in his Treatise on the Motion of Vortex Rings which won him the Adams Prize in 1884. His Application of Dynamics to Physics and Chemistry appeared in 1886, and in 1892 he had his Notes on Recent Researches in Electricity and Magnetism published. This latter work covered results obtained subsequent to the appearance of James Clerk Maxwell’s famous “Treatise” and it is often referred to as “the third volume of Maxwell”. Thomson co-operated with Professor J. H. Poynting in a four-volume textbook of physics, Properties of Matter and in 1895 he produced Elements of the Mathematical Theory of Electricity and Magnetism, the 5th edition of which appeared in 1921.In 1896, Thomson visited America to give a course of four lectures, which summarised his current researches, at Princeton. These lectures were subsequently published as Discharge of Electricity through Gases (1897). On his return from America, he achieved the most brilliant work of his life – an original study of cathode rays culminating in the discovery of the electron, which was announced during the course of his evening lecture to the Royal Institution on Friday, April 30, 1897. His book, Conduction of Electricity through Gases, published in 1903 was described by Lord Rayleigh as a review of “Thomson’s great days at the Cavendish Laboratory”. A later edition, written in collaboration with his son, George, appeared in two volumes (1928 and 1933).Thomson returned to America in 1904 to deliver six lectures on electricity and matter at Yale University. They contained some important suggestions as to the structure of the atom. He discovered a method for separating different kinds of atoms and molecules by the use of positive rays, an idea developed by Aston, Dempster and others towards the discovery of many isotopes. In addition to those just mentioned, he wrote the books, The Structure of Light (1907), The Corpuscular Theory of Matter (1907), Rays of Positive Electricity (1913), The Electron in Chemistry (1923) and his autobiography, Recollections and Reflections (1936), among many other publications.Thomson, a recipient of the Order of Merit, was knighted in 1908. He was elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 1884 and was President during 1916-1920; he received the Royal and Hughes Medals in 1894 and 1902, and the Copley Medal in 1914. He was awarded the Hodgkins Medal (Smithsonian Institute, Washington) in 1902; the Franklin Medal and Scott Medal (Philadelphia), 1923; the Mascart Medal (Paris), 1927; the Dalton Medal (Manchester), 1931; and the Faraday Medal (Institute of Civil Engineers) in 1938. He was President of the British Association in 1909 (and of Section A in 1896 and 1931) and he held honorary doctorate degrees from the Universities of Oxford, Dublin, London, Victoria, Columbia, Cambridge, Durham, Birmingham, Göttingen, Leeds, Oslo, Sorbonne, Edinburgh, Reading, Princeton, Glasgow, Johns Hopkins, Aberdeen, Athens, Cracow and Philadelphia.In 1890, he married Rose Elisabeth, daughter of Sir George E. Paget, K.C.B. They had one son, now Sir George Paget Thomson, Emeritus Professor of Physics at London University, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1937, and one daughter.From Nobel Lectures, Physics 1901-1921, Elsevier Publishing Company, Amsterdam, 1967This autobiography/biography was first published in the book series Les Prix Nobel. It was later edited and republished in Nobel Lectures.
Books by authors that are at or above 9th grade level.. (althoug short.
Books by authors that are at or above 9th grade level.?I got a Summer Reading Program and they gave me a list of authors. But the problem is, i don’t know any of the authors and what books they wrote and its a pretty long list. So if you could help me please choosing a book and i can give you some of the…
No books are ever exactly like the movies. I would suggest Pat Conroy. The Water is Wide is a wonderful book about his experiences as a teacher. The Prince of Tides is also an excellent book. I don’t know how many you have to read but Tom Wolfe’s Electric Kool Aid Acid Test is fun. Wally Lamb’s She’s Come Undone is good. Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar is a good read – not too long. Truman Capote In Cold Blood, Margaret Atwood The Handmaid’s Tale, Dan Brown Da Vinci Code or Angels and Demons … they seem about the easiest. Pax-C
How should I deal with feedback.
themes are lack of confidence and that I seem overwhelmed; my supervisor says she does not perceive these things and that I seem confident to her (the feedback is peer feedback); I’m wondering what behaviors (if any) I can change
The question here is how you feel about yourself. If this kind of feedback is affecting you (and it must be for you to ask a question in these forums) then you might have a confidence issue. Your supervisor may not see it because you may be trying to cover it, that is what many people do and many a really good about, that is what I used to do.Your lack of confidence might not even be your problem but just a symptom of an underlying problem.I suggest you read these two books: Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud and The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey.These two books might give you an idea of what could be wrong with yielding a personal and professional level and would also tell you how to correct it. Also if you really like to read a recommend you read anything of John Maxwell, he writes about leadership.Remember, it’s not about what people think about you, it’s about what you think about yourself and what you reflect to other people.I hope this was useful.

How do I pray correctly.
Okay, I recently began praying. And to my suprise, some of my prayers are being answered. However, not all of them are. I feel like I’m doing something wrong. Is there an instruction how-to books out there that can show me the correct way of praying?
There are many good books…Discover how prayer works and why you need it now more than everhttp://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle…Within you lies the secret that unlocks life’s possibilities.

Motivational and self-help experts in personal development, including Zig Ziglar, Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy have based their techniques on Maxwell Maltz. Many of the psychological methods of training elite athletes are based on the concepts in Psycho-Cybernetics as well. The book combines the cognitive behavioral technique of teaching an individual how to regulate self-concept developed by Prescott Lecky with the cybernetics of Norbert Wiener and John von Neumann. The book defines the mind-body connection as the core in succeeding in attaining personal goals.Maltz found that his plastic surgery patients often had expectations that were not satisfied by the surgery, so he pursued a means of helping them set the goal of a positive outcome through visualization of that positive outcome. Maltz became interested in why setting goals works. He learned that the power of self-affirmation and mental visualisation techniques used the connection between the mind and the body. He specified techniques to develop a positive inner goal as a means of developing a positive outer goal. This concentration on inner attitudes is essential to his approach, as a person’s outer success can never rise above the one visualized internally.http://www.amazon.com/reader/0879801271?_encoding=UTF8&token=S%2BbaSA0%2BofOlLTcPg4Y8RqZar%2Fv0oaxx7j7QeXPQ43Y%3D&ref_=sib%5Ffs%5Ftop&page=29#reader**************************************…Not to mention the Power of Miracles!ME!.

You really should read lots of leadership books. In my humble opinion, I believe John Maxwell is by far the best teacher in Leadership today. He has written many books and has led by example. I recommend his new book called “The 360degree Leader”.
What would be some good books for my teenaged daughter to read on leadership.
Last year she was sophomore class president and had an extremely hard time getting the other leadership class students to help with anything. Or as she put it “I have to spoon feed them like babies” (I thought that was funny. Her sponsors aren’t any help which is wrong, but she is learning a lot about…
John C. Maxwell writes a great many books on teamwork, leadership and such for managers and business leaders. I personally find the books very helpful, and I have been a fan since I was in my early 20’s managing stores and businesses. I have his book “21 Indespensible Qualities of a Leader”. Great book, and it is quick and rather short. I liked it because there are many different qualities, and not any one person has all of them. And he uses successful people to demonstrate them. His books are great.Pat Reilly (former NBA coach of the Los Angeles Lakers) also wrote a great book called Coaching yourself to Success. He speaks a lot about how to manage different personalities and get them to work together (the man coached teams with the likes of Worthy, Magic and Kareem on them). It is a wonderful read, and I got a lot out of the book as well. I figure anyone that can get a bunch of individual superstars to work together for the good of the team and not for the good of the contract deal, he has to know something about managing.There are also some books written by Steven Covey. He is a business writer as well, with books on teamwork, managing (the One Minute Manager is a great book) and leadership.Go to a Barnes and Noble and go to the business section. The books there are not all about numbers and business stuff. There are many great leadership books there. In order to be a successful leader in business, one has to know how to lead, right? A lot of books are there as a resource.Good luck!!
