Attention Deficit Disorder. Hyperactivity.
Abstract
Agités, incapables de fixer leur attention, insatisfaits chroniques, les jeunes tête-en-l'air sont d'autant plus difficiles à gérer que les adultes eux-mêmes participent à la frénésie ambiante : bouger, zapper, consommer, et plus que tout faire barrage à l'ennui. Tous hyperactifs ?. "Cette agitation n'est pas une maladie mais elle peut le devenir" et, dans les cas les plus sévères, pénaliser toute une vie et conduire à la spirale de l'échec. Sensible aux effets sur la santé des nouvelles technologies, hyperactif lui-même, le Dr Olivier Revol témoigne et appelle au calme.

Establish cultures of integrity
The Primes gives leaders the edge they need to succeed. Once the primes are revealed, you'll see them everywhere!

Everybody needs friends - especially a boy in a dress!
Dennis' life is boring and lonely. His mother left two years ago, his truck driver father is depressed, his brother is a bully and, worst of all, no hugging is one of their household rules. But one thing Dennis does have is soccer. He's the leading scorer on his team. Oh, and did we mention his secret passion for fashion?
When Dennis' friend Lisa discovers his stash of Vogue magazines, she convinces him to vamp it up and wear a dress to school. But in class, his hilarious hijinks as "Denise" are brought to a screeching halt when the headmaster discovers his secret and delivers the worst punishment of all -Dennis is expelled from school and therefore forbidden to play in the soccer Final Cup!
Can the team win the most important game of the year without their star player? And, more importantly, will Dennis gain the love and respect of his friends and family, even in a dress?

Abstract
A young boy becomes fascinated with his mother's bindi, and asks her to explain what it is and why she wears it. She tells him that the red dot is commonly worn by Hindu women to indicate the point at which creation begins. When he wishes to have one of his own, she agrees to it, and teaches him about its cultural significance, allowing the boy to discover the magic of the bindi, which in turn gives him permission to be more fully himself.

It is the rise from falling that Brown takes as her subject in Rising Strong. As a grounded theory researcher, Brown has listened as a range of people?from leaders in Fortune 500 companies and the military to artists, couples in long-term relationships, teachers, and parents?shared their stories of being brave, falling, and getting back up. She asked herself, What do these people with strong and loving relationships, leaders nurturing creativity, artists pushing innovation, and clergy walking with people through faith and mystery have in common? The answer was clear: They recognize the power of emotion and they?re not afraid to lean in to discomfort.
