13 ingredientes necesarios para cocinar una relación perfecta - Blog Phronesis Si supiésemos cuál es la clave para tener un matrimonio perfecto, nos iría mucho mejor, ¿verdad? Sin embargo, las tasas de divorcios parecen aumentar continuamente y la convivencia en pareja tiene que afrontar cada vez más dificultades que no existían en momentos pasados, como una mayor incertidumbre laboral o una creciente incapacidad para conciliar la vida personal con la laboral. Por ello no es de extrañar que se haya disparado el número de psicólogos dedicados a la terapia matrimonial. Una de ellas es la doctora y profesora de la Universidad de Pensilvania Judith Coche, que en sus publicaciones ha intentado identificar cuáles son las cualidades que definen a las parejas que mejor funcionan. La autora ha desarrollado el modelo “Psicoterapia de Pareja en Grupo” que posteriormente ha aplicado Laurie Abraham en el superventas The Husbands and Wives Club, un ensayo sobre la terapia matrimonial. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13.

The Science of Heartache: 6 Things You Need to Know Jose AS Reyes/Shutterstock Just as the digital age has ushered in new ways of enhancing human connection, it’s also opened up the scope and range of social rejection. Unfriend—as in, un-Facebook friend—was the word of the year in 2009, joining its older cohort “cyberbully,” amid the advent of the text breakup or the Facebook status change as ways to tell him or her that it’s over. With the yin and yang of digital life in mind, it seems relevant to explore what science knows about emotional pain and its connection to the physical kind. Language has always mirrored the connection between the two; we suffer from "broken hearts" as well as bones, and speak of "bruised feelings" along with toes. The links go well beyond the metaphorical. 1. 2. While both physical and emotional pain both “hurt,” they seem, on the surface at least, to do so in different ways, right? For example, Naomi L. 3.

10 Habits of Happy Couples What does it take to be happy in a relationship? If you’re working to improve your marriage , here are the 10 habits of happy couples. Remember the beginning of your relationship, when you couldn’t wait to go to bed with each other to make love? Happy couples resist the temptation to go to bed at different times. They go to bed at the same time, even if one partner wakes up later to do things while their partner sleeps. After the passion settles down, it’s common to realize that you have few interests in common. Rather than one partner lagging or dragging behind the other, happy couples walk comfortably hand in hand or side by side. If and when they have a disagreement or argument, and if they can’t resolve it, happy couples default to trusting and forgiving rather than distrusting and begrudging. If you look for things your partner does wrong, you can always find something. Our skin has a memory of “good touch” (loved), “bad touch” (abused) and “no touch” (neglected). </b>*}

The New Rules of Relationships Human beings crave intimacy, need to love and be loved, and function best when they are. Yet people have much trouble maintaining relationships. It's clear from the many letters I get to my advice column that lots of folks, men and women, have no idea what a healthy relationship even looks like. Because I write about these things, and care about the environments children grow in, I feel obligated to say something. From many sources and many experts over the years, I have culled some basic rules of relationships. • Choose a partner wisely and well. • Know your partner's beliefs about relationships. • Don't confuse sex with love. • Know your needs and speak up for them clearly. • Respect, respect, respect. • View yourselves as a team, which means you are two unique individuals bringing different perspectives and strengths. • Know how to manage differences; it's the key to success in a relationship. • Solve problems as they arise. • Learn to negotiate. • Don’t take everything personally.

7 Things Healthy People Do Before Bed By Jessica Migala To sleep well, pick up these nighttime habits. They Snack -- Smarter Photography by ZhangXun via Getty Images If you’re going to have a bedtime snack, make it a kiwi. Eating two of these fruits one hour before bed for a month helped adults fall asleep 35 percent faster and sleep 13 percent longer, found a 2011 study from Taiwanese researchers. It might be the high concentration of antioxidant vitamins C and E, which help regulate neurotransmitters in the brain (linked to healthy sleep cycles), or the fruit’s rich amount of another sleep-promoting neurotransmitter, serotonin.

I Love You But Don't Call Me, OK? I don’t have a definitive answer as to whether introverts and extroverts make perfect, complementary couples or are destined to drive each other crazy. The bottom line is, like everything else, it depends on the people. And like everything else, if both parties respect and compromise, everything’s cool. No matter how much common ground they have otherwise, introverts and extroverts have different needs, and they do things differently. My husband is only slightly less introverted than I, and even so we have had to negotiate a few things. General guidelines for socializing. I'd love to hear from introvert-extrovert couples about your talking points. Hooray, hooray, my book is out! 5 Signs Your Relationship Is Going To Last Is your relationship in trouble? Having worked with thousands of couples during the last 46 years, I've seen over and over what creates relationship success or failure. Here are some choices that can make a huge difference: 1. The major issue in relationships is whether you take responsibility for your feelings of worth, safety, lovability and happiness, or whether you make your partner responsible for these feelings. If you believe that your partner is responsible for making you happy, safe and worthy, what do you do when he or she doesn't do what you want? Do you: Get angry, attack and blame, withdraw or find other ways to punish your partner? Does any of this help your relationship? The major way you can begin to heal your relationship is to learn how to love yourself — how to take loving care of your own feelings. 2. Do you treat yourself with kindness? Be honest with yourself: how often are you kind and caring, and how often are you judgmental toward yourself or your partner? 3. 4. 5.

Reverse Engineering a NAND Flash Device Management Algorithm | Joshua Wise's domain Around June of 2012, I had gotten myself into a very bad habit. Instead of carrying my SD card in my camera, I left it sticking out of the side of my laptop, presumably intending to do something with the photos on it eventually. On my flight home from Boston, the predictable thing happened: as I got up out of my seat, the machine fell out of my lap, and as the machine hit the ground, the SD card hit first, and was destroyed. I was otherwise ready to write off the data stored on that device, but something inside me just wasn't happy with that outcome. The following is a description of how I went about reverse-engineering the on-flash format, and of the conclusions that I came to. If you're just looking for the resources that go with this project, here are the pictures of the hardware, and here is the source code. You can discuss this article on Hacker News.
