Her story of multiple levels of guests coming home but equal quality of treatment irrespective of level was heart touching. The tools like Reprogram your brain, change transition curve and internal representative system was really handy for audience to learn from and use in day to day life.

Did you know? Q : This is a chip that can reverse paralysis. A :Remember paraplegic Professor Charles Xavier from X-Men moving things with his brain and even freezing everyone in a room? Well, if Grégoire Courtine has his way, then Prof. Xavier might even be able to stand up and walk, with his brain faculties still intact. The French neuroscientist and his team at the research center for neurotechnologies in Geneva are trying to prove that brain impulses can be transmitted to the spinal column, allowing a paraplegic to move their muscles. They demonstrated this on a monkey with a paralyzed right leg by using a chip with fine electrodes to read brain impulses and then transmit the thoughts from the brain to the damaged spinal cord through a brain-neural implant, allowing it to walk again.

Professional Belonging

Professional Belonging - Murali Santhanam, PMP When King Leonids assembled his army of 300 to stop an invasion by Xerxes, he is joined by a larger army of Arcadians. The Arcadians boast that they have brought in a larger army than King Leonids. King Leonids then shows that his army of 300 Professional Warriors mean more than the Arcadian Army of Teachers, Farmers and Artisans. When push comes to shove, the power and credibility that a Profession adds to you as a person is what makes the difference.
