Better than happiness, positivity will boost your life, not just your smile Drawing on more than twenty years of scientific research into positive emotions, world renowned researcher Dr Barbara Fredrickson shows us that attaining positivity is not about striving to be an annoyingly and unnaturally cheerful 'Pollyanna'. Rather, it is about putting into practice the '3-to-1 ratio' of positive to negative emotions, the crucial tipping point that will enable you to embark on an 'upward spiral' towards a healthier, more vibrant, and flourishing life.

This two volume work on "Positivity in Algebraic Geometry" contains a contemporary account of a body of work in complex algebraic geometry loosely centered around the theme of positivity. Topics in Volume I include ample line bundles and linear series on a projective variety, the classical theorems of Lefschetz and Bertini and their modern outgrowths, vanishing theorems, and local positivity. Volume II begins with a survey of positivity for vector bundles, and moves on to a systematic development of the theory of multiplier ideals and their applications. A good deal of this material has not previously appeared in book form, and substantial parts are worked out here in detail for the first time. At least a third of the book is devoted to concrete examples, applications, and pointers to further developments. Whereas Volume I is more elementary, the present Volume II is more at the research level and somewhat more specialized. Both volumes are also available as hardcover edition as Vols. 48 and 49 in the series "Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebiete".

Michael Doray found his purpose when he started volunteering. Through helping others, he cultivated a positive attitude that has helped him overcome numerous obstacles. As someone who lived in an environment where physical and emotional abuse was normal, he could have chosen to lash out. Instead, he focused on building strong relationships with the people he helped at a nursing home. He ultimately spent more than three thousand hours volunteering at the nursing home, and he has been helping people ever since. In this memoir, he shares how he escaped a life of misery by reaching out to others. The lessons he learned on positivity served him well later in life. As he came to terms with being gay, he faced the difficult prospect of prejudice and of identifying himself as one of a minority group. Even so, he managed to keep a positive attitude through the most difficult of circumstances. Through Finding Positivity, you can discover the strength you possess to overcome whatever difficulties that may be standing in your way. Even when times are tough, you can accomplish great things by maintaining a positive attitude.

When I stated out my only motive was to make a book that would help in personal and global positive change. Within good time the book became so much more it became a guideline to living in a new state and a new positive / productive way. Many people will find that most of the ideas in this book ring a truth. My only wish is that people will pick up on this ringing vibration of truth and apply it to their lives.

The essence of our humanness is how we treat one another, when we treat each other poorly, we feel bad. But when we act out of kindness and compassion, we discover a vitality beyond dogma or doctrine; it is unexplainable, mystical. This is mystical kindness, and it is the key for families finding their way out of unhappiness, turmoil, distance and bitter emptiness. How we treat family determines not only how happy they are, it determines how happy we are and whether or not we make sense out of our place in the world. Discover cooperative interdependence, the ultimate purpose of mystical kindness, and discover the principles of positivity, the building blocks for putting this style of life together. Everyone is positive by nature. Discovering this fact and putting it to work is the secret of capitalizing on the next Spiritual Awakening, happening around you as you read this. It is an adventure, this thing called life. And it’s not meant to be traveled alone.

Your answer to this might just tell you something about your own view of the world and your receptiveness to positive thinking. But it is a topic worth keeping an open mind on and it does warrant further investigation and scrutiny. There is a large body of published work on the subject and this collection draws on some it and point up a lot of other ideas and sources. It also views the scientific evidence for the principles and the practical outcomes that some people appear to have extracted from using the concept.

Work is a good thing yet it's not always a positive thing. It's not always gratifying or enriching because people spend a majority of their waking life in organizations that don't create wellness. A positive workplace provides a constructive environment that fulfills our needs for autonomy, connection, and impact, while ensuring the means to food and shelter. Workplaces that enable positivity give employees access to the essential elements of well-being: positive emotion, positive relationships, purpose and meaning, positive accomplishment, and positive health. These elements, taken together, create individual and collective flourishing. When the conditions for well-being are present in the workplace, everybody-employer, employees, external stakeholders, and the wider society-benefits. Expert organizational psychologists S. Chris Edmonds and Lisa Zigarmi have seen how positive organizations empower the people who work within them, while providing meaningful contributions to society. In #POSITIVITY at WORK tweet, they define and describe a positive workplace, and then go on to demonstrate how to engender positive emotions, relationships, accomplishment, and health at work. For example, since people show up at work with their hearts as well as their heads, leaders need to be as concerned with affect as well as results. Positive emotion reflects perceptions of safety, satisfaction, and achievement and produces future well-being and positive consequences. Expressing positive emotion is critical for human growth and development, and equally critical for organizational success. Or, to take another example, positive health, which means much more than just the absence of illness. Our physical conditions have a huge impact on our presence, skill application, and nimbleness at work. The more positive our physical health, the greater our connection to our work, peers, leaders, company, and customers. Enabling positivity at work is not simple. Healthy work cultures happen by design, not default. It takes intentional choice to foster a culture of wellness. The responsibility lies not only with the employer, but also with the individuals who make up the organization. And in this effort, S. Chris Edmonds and Lisa Zigarmi's designed-for-action #POSITIVITY at WORK tweet is a perfect guide, one that will help you create a healthy, affirmative work environment where every individual contributes, connects, succeeds, and thrives. #POSITIVITY at WORK tweet is part of the THiNKaha series whose slim and handy books contain 140 well-thought-out quotes (tweets/ahas). S. Chris Edmonds is a speaker, author, and senior consultant with the Ken Blanchard Companies. He is the author of #CORPORATE CULTURE tweet, co-author of Blanchard's bestselling book, Leading at a Higher Level, and also co-author of Blanchard's award-winning culture change process. As Blanchard's culture expert he has helped numerous clients create a high performing, values aligned culture using Blanchard's proven process. Thousands of his followers on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn look forward to his culture and leadership tweets each day. Lisa Zigarmi is a Lead Client Service Partner for The Ken Blanchard Companies(R) located in New York City. She works with Fortune 500 companies to build leadership capacity within their ranks and is passionate about creating saner, more effective, more meaning-driven organizations. She is currently researching employee work passion/engagement and helps leaders and organizations to create the conditions (role, organizational, and relational) for their employees to flourish.

The book consists of solicited articles from a select group of mathematicians and physicists working at the interface between positivity and the geometry, combinatorics or analysis of polynomials of one or several variables. It is dedicated to the memory of Julius Borcea (1968-2009), a distinguished mathematician, Professor at the University of Stockholm. With his extremely original contributions and broad vision, his impact on the topics of the planned volume cannot be underestimated. All contributors knew or have exchanged ideas with Dr. Borcea, and their articles reflect, at least partially, his heritage.
