L'apprendimento - quante volte ce lo siamo sentiti ripetere - è questione di disciplina e di impegno. Basta spegnere la TV e lo smartphone, sedersi alla solita scrivania in un ambiente tranquillo, evitare le distrazioni e darci dentro, memorizzare, ripassare, esercitarsi per ore e ore. Che si tratti di un problema di trigonometria, di una tesina di fine semestre o di un brano per pianoforte, la regola è sempre stata questa: concentrarsi sul lavoro, sgobbare sui libri o sugli spartiti, magari fino a notte fonda, è l'unica maniera per garantirsi il successo…

Nell'Arte di imparare Benedict Carey, pluripremiato giornalista scientifico del «New York Times», delinea le tecniche necessarie per «liberare lo scansafatiche che è in noi», allenare la memoria, riattivare la mente e rendere produttivo, efficace e divertente il tempo dedicato allo studio. Nel farlo, Carey ripercorre le tappe principali dello sviluppo della scienza dell'apprendimento, le sue teorie e scoperte fondamentali, a partire dal funzionamento del cervello, una «macchina cognitiva» del tutto eccentrica, che elabora, trattiene le informazioni… e le dimentica, per arrivare alle ricerche sul ruolo stabilizzante del sonno, sul funzionamento della memoria e sui poteri del subconscio, cioè quella parte della nostra mente che ci consente di «imparare senza pensare».

A strong follow-up to Mariah Carey's self-titled debut album, Emotions puts to rest any concern of a "sophomore slump." The same mix of dance/R&B/ballads that gave Carey's debut such tremendous auditory appeal can be found with equal strength on this release, indicating that placing firm belief in the notion of "Why fool with success?" may, in fact, have its merits. Most notably, the gospel influences of "If It's Over" (with music co-written by Carole King), the yearning cries for a lost love in "Can't Let Go," and the catchy, upbeat title track all serve to send the listener on a musical journey filled with varying emotions. However, the one emotion that prevails upon completion of the album is definitely a positive one: satisfaction.

Mariah Carey claims Rainbow, her first album since divorcing Tommy Mottola, "chronicles my emotional roller coaster ride of the past year," but less subjective listeners could be forgiven for viewing it as simply another Mariah Carey album. After all, all the elements are in place – the crossover dance hits, the ballads, the cameos, the hip producers, the weird cover choice from the early '80s. But dig a little deeper, and her words ring true. Rainbow is the first Carey album where she's written personal lyrics, and allusions to her separation from Mottola are evident throughout the album, even if it doesn't really amount to the "story" she mentions in the liner notes…

Upon its release, Butterfly was interpreted as Mariah Carey's declaration of independence from her ex-husband (and label president) Tommy Mottola, and to a certain extent, that's true. Butterfly is peppered with allusions to her troubled marriage and her newfound freedom, and the music is supposed to be in tune with contemporary urban sounds instead of adult contemporary radio. Nevertheless, it feels like a Mariah Carey album, which means that it's a collection of hit singles surrounded by classy filler. What is surprising about Butterfly is the lack of up-tempo dance-pop. Apart from the Puffy Combs-produced "Honey," Butterfly is devoted to ballads, and while they are all well-crafted…

English | January 9th, 2017 | ASIN: B01MUA6H2V, ISBN: 0824525949 | 204 Pages | EPUB | 5.35 MB

This new edition of a classic religious text combines the timeless wisdom of Benedict of Nursia's Rule with the perceptive commentary of a renowned Benedictine mystic and scholar. In her new introduction to the Rule, the author boldly claims that Benedict's sixth-century text is the only one of great traditions that directly touches the contemporary issues facing the human community—stewardship, conversion, communication, reflection, contemplation, humility, and equality.

Protest as she may – and she does, claiming in the liner notes that #1's is "not a greatest hits album! It's too soon, I haven't been recording long enough for that!" – it's hard to view #1's, Mariah Carey's first compilation, as anything other than a greatest-hits album. Carey was fortunate enough to have nearly every single she released top the pop charts. Between 1990's "Vision of Love" and 1998's "My All," all but four commercially released singles ("Anytime You Need a Friend," "Can't Let Go," "Make It Happen," "Without You") hit number one, with only a handful of radio-only singles ("Butterfly," "Breakdown") making the airwaves, not the charts. That leaves 12 big hits on #1's, all number ones…
