Texting In Sick
By Rune Vejby
Did you know that the average American spends over 3 hours texting every day? Texting in Sick reveals that texting has become the preferred medium for many people- even in complex conversations, such as reporting in sick for work, delivering bad news, and breaking up relationships.
But what happens to our relationships when we handle such conversations on text? How does texting change our attitudes and expectations towards the people we communicate with? And how are trust and empathy impacted when we use a medium with such a limited range of social cues?
In Texting in Sick, you'll uncover the answers to these questions and explore the cultural, psychological, and technological trends behind the growing use of texting and smartphones. Filled with compelling research and plenty of tweetable statistics, Texting in Sick urges us to take a fresh look at our communication habits and reconsider the ways we engage with our mobile devices.

Levant Fever is a memoir from the political underground darkness of Assad’s Syria. Seen through the eyes of a boy growing into a man, in the middle of feverish historic events. Not widely understood, or told before in the West but at the roots of the current conflicts. The narrative grips the reader with its honesty, brutality and beauty. The author describes his own journey, reflections and life stories told to him whilst he was held without trial for 14 years, as a political prisoner in several prisons. These included Palmyra, noted by Amnesty International as one of the most oppressive prisons in the world.
The work is an enthralling and informative mosaic reflecting the colours, sects, religions, politics, legends and geography of the Levant. The journey spans the areas deserts, coastline, mountains and forests. It speaks of family, friendship, love, hope, fear, torture, hiding and escaping. A truly human tale of a life well lived, a life of conscience, courage and endurance and ultimately one of triumph of the human spirit.

Doing the Right Things Right
By Laura Stack
Doing the Right Things Right details precisely how today’s leaders and managers can obtain profitable, productive results by managing the intersection of two critical values: effectiveness and efficiency. Effectiveness, Stack says, is identifying and achieving the best objectives for your organization-doing the right things. Efficiency is accomplishing them with the least amount of time, effort, and cost-doing things right. If you’re not clear on both, you’re wasting your time.

This book will give you a simple answer to the question: How do I process superfoods in my daily diet? Superfoods are often sold in the shape of (freeze-dried) powders.

The only tools you need for making these great tasting and nutritious smoothies are a blender, a knife and a cutting board. Of course, you will need the ingredients but also your creativity: Make sure you have the necessary ingredients in your fridge and cupboards ready; fruits, superfoods, sweeteners, herbs and/or green vegetables, melons the list is almost endless.

What are superfoods
Superfood is a generic name for a high-quality food with extra high nutrients, antioxidants and/or phytonutrients (see Annex 1). In addition to the enormously high nutritional values, superfoods have many other features that are good for our health. Most superfoods that are offered in the store are organic, raw, and they are often harvested in areas where the soil is not very exhausted. Raw foodies (people who eat only unprocessed and unheated food) have been eating superfoods for years due to this reason. There are different types of superfoods, such as algae, mushrooms, wild herbs, fruit, seeds, foods with some good fatty acids, germs and grasses. Superfoods are not always exotics. Ordinary foods like broccoli, ginger, garlic and turmeric, are also classified as superfoods.
And why should I eat them
Several scientific studies and reports mention the sometimes terrifying, decrease in the nutritional value in our daily foods. The Swiss company Geigly for example, reported in a report from 2011 that the amount of calcium in broccoli from 1985 to 2002 decreased with 73%, magnesium in carrots by 71% and the amount of vitamin C in strawberries by 87%. Because by eating ordinary fruits and vegetables people do not take in enough vitamins, many people live (mostly unconsciously) with shortages of certain nutrients. Especially if they fit into a risk group, such as people who have experienced a stressful period or are pregnant.
Because of the loss of nutrients by depleted agricultural soils, air pollution and other impurities, it turns out even with a balanced and healthy diet, you often need to supplement your diet with something extra, such as superfoods or vitamin supplements.
Each superfood will have its own qualities and each will play a different role in a balanced diet. There are superfoods that have mild aphrodisiac qualities and others which have a rejuvenating effect or provide stronger bones. Also, some superfoods can help you in losing weight. It almost sounds too simple to be true doesn’t it? Read-on. Without having to think about it, you will automatically get to your goal weight, through daily use of saturating superfood smoothies. The benefits do not stop at weight loss & control either. You will experience raised levels of energy and well-being. In an era where there is rightly a lot of discussions about the quality of our food, it seems that eating superfoods is not so much a passing fad, but rather a necessary and permanent, modern development.
We hope you get as much pleasure with your superfood smoothie adventure, as we had creating this book!
Since Daphne was a teen, she has been fascinated by a healthy diet. Since 2003 she has been working to boost her own health through diet, yoga and walking. For a long time Daphne believed that she was eating healthily, but nevertheless she could not get rid of her troubled skin. Until 2013, when she started a diet consisting of 80% raw fruits, vegetables and nuts, (whether or not in the form of smoothies). Only the remaining 20% comprised of cooked food. This brought a huge improvement in not just her feelings of overall health but in clearing up the issues with her skin.
Daphne now uses superfoods mainly in smoothies, so she will absorb a lot of vitamins, minerals and other substances throughout her day. In this book, Daphne has expressed her love, creativity and passion for healthy food and her determination in sharing this valuable knowledge.
Daphne researched and formulated the theoretical part of this book. In addition, together with Heleen, they made, the recipes for the superfood smoothies you will find in this book, each week and for many months. This was a pleasant and informative journey, which ultimately led to producing this valuable book.
