s Trend Briefing covering "7 Consumer Trends To Run With In 2014" Growing numbers of consumers can no longer escape an awareness of the damage done by their consumption: to the planet, society, or themselves. But a mixture of indulgence, addiction and conditioning mean that most can’t substantially change their consumption habits. The result? A never-ending guilt spiral.

Supporting Students with ADHD By Tom McIntyre, Ph.D., author of The Survival Guide for Kids with Behavior Challenges Research shows that certain classroom characteristics promote success for students with ADHD. Predictability, structure, short working periods, a small teacher-to-pupil ratio, individualized instruction, an interesting curriculum, and lots of positive reinforcement are all important to student progress.

International Trend Interpretation Agency Babyboomers are the biggest, wealthiest and most dominant generation. They are still very active, especially when compared to the generations before them.

A Legendary French Fashion House Returns In the '60s, André Courrèges was one of the most copied designers on the planet — though his fashions at times seemed like they came from another world.
