Biology History The objects of our research will be the different forms and manifestations of life, the conditions and laws under which these phenomena occur, and the causes through which they have been effected. The science that concerns itself with these objects we will indicate by the name biology [Biologie] or the doctrine of life [Lebenslehre]. Although modern biology is a relatively recent development, sciences related to and included within it have been studied since ancient times. 7 Health Benefits of Ginger I love the aromatic spicy taste of ginger and how it adds a unique flavor to my meals and beverages. But ginger has plenty of other beneficial properties besides its taste. Chinese medicine and Indian Ayurvedic medicine have used ginger to help treat and prevent health problems for thousands of years. In the west, we are just learning how valuable it is.

30 Ways to Define Leadership Credit: Rawpixel/Shutterstock Webster's Dictionary defines leadership as "the power or ability to lead other people," but for most people, there's a lot more to it than that. Ask anyone what it means to be a leader, and you'll likely hear something unique every time. That's because everyone has his or her own idea of what leadership is, but not every boss leads a team the same way. Some people think leadership means guiding others to complete a particular task, while others believe it means motivating the members of your team to be their best selves. But while the definitions may vary, the general sentiments remain the same: Leaders are people who know how to achieve goals and inspire people along the way.

Don't Mix Your Meds With These Foods Like the foods and drinks above, some dietary supplements, including vitamins, minerals, and herbals, can cause problems if you take them with some drugs. Even a multivitamin with iron can negate the effects of many drugs. But herbs are the worst offenders, and St. Falser Words Were Never Spoken IN a coffee shop not long ago, I saw a mug with an inscription from Henry David Thoreau: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.” At least it said the words were Thoreau’s. Fresh Fruits, Veggies, Not Medication If you’d rather eat fresh fruit or a carrot than pop a pill to stay healthy, go for it! Increasing research indicates that a diet that includes fresh fruits and vegetables could be as good or better for you than drugs when it comes to controlling or eliminating some diseases and illnesses. Here are five ways eating fresh fruits and veggies could make you healthier than medications you may be taking: 1) Statins - Oxford University researchers have found that eating a piece of fruit each day significantly lowers the likelihood of a heart attack. In fact, “eating even one piece of fruit each day lowered the risk of a heart attack or stroke by one third over a seven year period,” a result that’s as significant as taking a statin, but without the side effects.

Want Collaboration?: Accept—and Actively Manage—Conflict The challenge is a long-standing one for senior managers: How do you get people in your organization to work together across internal boundaries? But the question has taken on urgency in today’s global and fast-changing business environment. To service multinational accounts, you increasingly need seamless collaboration across geographic boundaries. To improve customer satisfaction, you increasingly need collaboration among functions ranging from R&D to distribution. To offer solutions tailored to customers’ needs, you increasingly need collaboration between product and service groups. Meanwhile, as competitive pressures continually force companies to find ways to do more with less, few managers have the luxury of relying on their own dedicated staffs to accomplish their objectives.

Common Medications Linked To Brain Disease When most people think of brain disease, they probably think of genetics, traumatic brain injury and other causes. But, there is a silent brain disease culprit that few people know about: prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Multiple studies even link some medications to dementia—a loss of mental ability severe enough to interfere with normal activities of daily living, lasting more than six months, not present since birth and not associated with a loss or alteration of consciousness.
